Episode Plot

After acquiring the Spike Shell Badge in the last episode Ash and co. decide to rest on an island with unusually giant Pokémon. Only to have their peace and quiet interrupted by a trap set by Team Rocket, who captures Pikachu by wrapping a belt around him. Meowth has a matching belt and the two become teethered together. Just as Team Rocket was about to escape a giant Pidgeot swoops down, grabs Pikachu and Meowth and flies off. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt and the Pidgeot lets go of them both with Meowth landing face first cushioning Pikachu's fall. Can Pikachu and Meowth survive the wilds of this island, and each other?


  • This episode's plot is similar to the 1958 movie, The Defiant Ones.
  • Meowth once again comments on how he dosen't have a nose. The first time he did this was in "IL026: Pokémon Scent-sation!".
