“Wait!” Oshawott quickly signaled before his trainer could turn the knob on the door. As Ash stood feeling somewhat puzzled by his Pokémon’s sudden warning, Oshawott walked towards the foot of the bed and grabbed a small, clear glass that stood on the drawer nearby.
“Oh! I forgot about that glass. Thank you, Osha…wott?” Ash said as he began to walk towards Oshawott, but quickly stopped in his tracks, his face showing more signs of nausea as he witnessed Oshawott slowly fill the glass with his Water Gun attack. Even Pikachu couldn’t help but feel a bit grossed out after witnessing this moment.
“Umm, that’s nice, Oshawott, but I think I’ll just get a glass while I’m downstairs.” Ash said, trying to sound as sincere as possible before finally opening the door and leaving the room. As Pikachu went back to sleep into his curled position, Oshawott still stood awake, looking at the partially filled glass of water in his hand.
“What’s his problem? This is perfectly good drinking water,” Oshawott convinced himself before drinking a bit of the water himself. At first, he did not think the water would be bad at all, but after taking a bit of water into his mouth, he quickly spat it all out in disgust, dropping the empty glass on the bed in the process. As Oshawott ran frantically after Ash through the already open door, Pikachu could only laugh softly to himself as he watched Oshawott’s ordeal with one eye open before finally falling asleep. As Oshawott continued to run down the hall towards the stairs, still feeling traumatized, he was eventually stopped in his tracks when he ran into Ash’s leg and fell.
“What was that?” Ash asked himself before turning around and looking down to see Oshawott brushing his tongue with his hands. “What happened to you, Oshawott?! Are you okay?” Ash asked with a look of concern before bending down to get a closer look at the unfortunate sea otter.
“Do not drink the Pokémon water!” Oshawott shouted to Ash, who only became even more confused by his inaudible chirping.
