    Default "Pokémon: Intensity" HoSo Specials - As close to Season 8 as I'm getting

    In the repost of my Season 6 thread, ShucklemasterJ suggested that I do HoSo specials for "Pokémon: Intensity". I didn't think it'd work at first, but then I realized that there are many characters I wanted to bring back but didn't get the chance to. Many of these characters weren't resuscitated because I couldn't connect them to Ash and Misty or Jessie and James in any way - and by making special episodes without the main characters, I've overcome that obstacle. So here's the first four specials - and thank you, ShucklemasterJ, for the inspiration!

    “Annie and Oakley’s Excellent Adventure”
    Episode HACP01
    Original Airdate: 7/8/05
    Guest Voices: Norm MacDonald as Articuno, Chevy Chase as Zapdos, George Carlin as Moltres

    In the vast Olivine-based secret offices of Team Alto, Annie and Oakley are eagerly awaiting their annual performance reviews. Annie suspects that they are shoo-ins for a promotion. However, when their boss, Marisa, goes over a year’s worth of Annie and Oakley’s progress reports, she informs the two agents that they are not ready for promotion and must remain at Class 2 for another year. Outraged, Annie and Oakley vow to prove that they are the most vicious thieves in all of Team Alto. Trying to think of a truly remarkable heist they can pull, they learn of the plight of crazed Pokémon collector Lawrence III, who once tried to capture the three Legendary Birds in the hopes that it would summon Lugia from the sea. Deciding that they can use Lawrence to help them capture the birds again, they set off to the Orange Islands in the hopes of locating him. Tracking him down in his massive mansion off Shamouti Island, Annie and Oakley try to persuade Lawrence to help them. However, Lawrence has learned from his past mistakes and has vowed not to go after the legendary Pokémon again. Not about to lose a promotion, Annie and Oakley hold him at gunpoint and demand that he take them to the birds’ locations. Lawrence reluctantly takes the two agents out to sea and shows them Moltres’ Island, but once on land, he makes a break for it and tells Moltres to take off. Annie and Oakley try to contain the bird, but he escapes - and the temperature immediately begins dropping. Annie and Oakley grab Lawrence and chase Moltres to Articuno’s island. As soon as Articuno leaves his roost to help his companion, thunderbolts begin flashing across the sky at an alarming rate. It is at this point that Lawrence informs Annie and Oakley that the birds have an effect on the weather. When Zapdos arrives to fight off Annie and Oakley, Lugia rises from the sea and sends the birds back to their respective islands. He then begins pursuing Annie and Oakley for being so inconsiderate. Blasting across the sea back towards Shamouti Island, Annie and Oakley’s rocket engines run out of fuel, and their vehicle splashes into the sea. The Shamouti Coast Guard arrives on the scene and arrests the two for disrupting the peace. Stuck in jail, Annie and Oakley call Marisa, who agrees to send help, but assures them that they won’t be promoted now for at least two years.

    “Summer of Forty-Boo”
    Episode HACP02
    Original Airdate: 9/16/05
    Guest Voice: Ryan Stiles as Typhlosion, Juliette Lewis as Misdreavus

    After retiring from Pokémon training, Johto trainers Dani, Yoshi, and Jackson fell out of contact with one another for several years. While perusing the Goldenrod Department Store one day, Yoshi runs into his two friends again. While catching up with one another at the Rooftop Café, Dani suggests that they all go out and do something together like old times. Jackson points out that the annual End of Summer Festival will be happening soon at Maiden’s Peak in the Kanto region, and the three friends agree that it’d be a perfect activity. That night, Yoshi returns home and realizes just how beautiful Dani has become since he last saw her. Yoshi’s Typhlosion tells his trainer that he’s likely developing a crush on Dani. Yoshi suspects that he may be right. When the three friends arrive at the End of Summer Festival several that weekend, they learn about the myth of the Ghost of Maiden’s Peak. Upon hearing that the ghost nearly claimed two innocent men several years ago, Jackson begins to suspect that there may be truth to the myth. Yoshi, however, is more focused on Dani and how he will somehow admit his feelings to her. That evening, however, the festivities are disrupted by the appearance of the supposed ghost. Jackson is initially terrified, but the ghost sets its sights on Yoshi instead. Yoshi begs not to be taken away, insisting that he has to tell Dani how he feels, but the ghost drags him towards the top of Maiden’s Peak against his wishes. Dani hears Yoshi’s cries for help and sends forth her Misdreavus, whose Nightshade attack reveals the Gastly behind the facade of the ghost. Outraged that he’s been found out again, Gastly force-evolves itself into a much more powerful Haunter and attacks Dani with a massive Shadow Ball. Yoshi manages to get Dani to the first aid tent while simultaneously fending off Haunter with his Typhlosion. Once she comes to, Dani realizes all the lengths Yoshi’s gone to in order to secure her safety. Yoshi takes the opportunity to tell Dani that he’s in love with her. Touched, Dani gets to her feet and prepares to fight Haunter with Yoshi at her side. However, once they get outside the tent, they see that Jackson has already felled and captured the ghost for himself. Regardless, Dani is still grateful to Yoshi for saving her - and agrees to a date with him the following week.

    “Rack in the Saddle Again”
    Episode HACP03
    Original Airdate: 12/2/05
    Guest Voice: Cloris Leachman as Lapras, Billy West as Slowbro

    Having spent over fifteen years as a member of the Elite Four, Lorelei begins to consider the pros and cons of retirement. She feels that she’s reached the pinnacle of her Indigo Plateau training days and decides to call it quits. Her fellow Elite Four members Bruno, Agatha, and Lance bid her farewell, but once she’s gone, Lorelei begins to realize that she’s not as young as she used to be. Retiring from the Elite Four has only proven that she’s past her prime and that she needs to cherish the rest of her life. Slipping into a mid-life crisis, Lorelei immediately purchases a new car, new clothes, and visits a cosmetic surgeon to schedule an appointment to have her face lifted and her already large bustline enhanced. Her Pokémon can’t stand to see her like this, however, and decide to take action. Before she can go so far as to change her appearance, Dewgong, Cloyster, Slowbro, and Lapras corner their owner and convince her that if she’s so eager to get back into the swing of life, she should start training again. Lorelei admits that she wants to train, but aspires to more than just fighting the challengers at the Indigo Plateau every year. She then gets the wise idea to become a gym leader. Though the Kanto and Johto unions are currently at full capacity, the recently relaunched - and legal - Orange League has no limit to how many gym leaders it has. Lorelei sets off to Tangelo Island to register in the Orange Gym Leader’s Union and is immediately allowed entry. Meeting with the other gym leaders, she quickly gets accustomed with Cissy, Danny, Rudy, and Luanna, as well as union leader Drake. Setting up a gym on Tangelo Island itself, Lorelei becomes widely respected. During one union meeting, Danny asks Lorelei out for the evening, and she readily accepts, relieved that men still find her attractive. At the end of the evening, Lorelei invites Danny in to her gym for the night. Danny agrees - but after several passionate hours, Danny finds himself ridden with guilt and admits to Lorelei that he’s married. Shocked that she just contributed to an act of adultery, Lorelei is even more perplexed when she discovers who Danny’s wife is - Professor Ivy. Wondering why Danny would want to cheat on such a beautiful wife, Lorelei apologizes to Ivy for everything. Regardless, Ivy is still furious and demands a separation. Realizing that she might not fit in with the Orange Islands crowd, Lorelei packs up and heads back to the Elite Four, where she is welcomed with open arms by her friends.

    “The Girl Can’t Help It”
    Episode HACP04
    Original Airdate: 10/13/06

    In the Johto region, Professor Hale is still widely regarded as the top expert on mythical and/or legendary Pokémon. However, his work at his home laboratory is often hindered by his teenage daughter Molly, who constantly has her friends over for slumber parties and the like. Needing privacy while preparing a presentation for the Academic Pokémon Society, Hale specifically requests that Molly and her friends be quiet. Molly insists that she never gets to hang out with her father anymore, and to appease her, Hale agrees to bring Molly with him to the APS meeting that weekend. This is not what Molly had in mind, however, and she mopes through the entire lecture. When it comes time for Hale to give his speech, Molly pays back her dad by swapping his notes with a failing essay she has written for school. Hale becomes the laughingstock of the society. Furious, Hale grounds Molly for a week. Believing that her father doesn’t understand her feelings, Molly sneaks out of her room and takes off into the forests of Johto. Distraught to find his daughter missing in the morning, Hale calls the police, who put out a citywide search for Molly. Meanwhile, Molly travels northward towards Goldenrod City, where she hopes to find a place to rest and collect her thoughts. Reading a flyer for a teen help hotline, Molly decides to call them, but she gets the wrong number and calls the Goldenrod Radio Station. It happens to be the middle of Mary’s call-in talk show, and the sympathetic DJ hears Molly’s story anyway. In telling her plight, Molly conveniently omits the fact that she ran away from home. Arriving at the radio station itself, Molly wanders in to find more help and is greeted by the station president. In the president’s office, Molly sees his prize Silver and Rainbow Wings on display and feels mysteriously compelled to take them. Knowing that they supposedly summon the wise and almighty Lugia and Ho-Oh to their roosts in Ecruteak City, and having always felt a strange connection to the legends of the Johto region, Molly sets off again in the hopes of getting guidance from the legendary birds. En route to the Tin Tower, she is spotted by a police officer, who tries to follow her and calls Professor Hale to alert him. At the Tin Tower, Hale arrives by helicopter and demands that Molly come home immediately before she’s grounded any more. Molly insists that the whole reason she ran away in the first place was because her father was so wrapped up in his work, he kept ignoring her and telling her to stay out of sight. Realizing the error of his ways, Hale apologizes and promises to be more considerate in the future. Molly accepts his apology and returns home.

    Many thanks for the lollipop. It takes me a while to decide which characters I want to use for each one of these things, but I'm always pleased with the results.

    “Lovin’ an Excavator”
    Episode HACP05
    Original Airdate: 2/2/07

    At the Dewford Gym, Brawly is concerned that his protégé Shawna is losing her touch in both Pokémon battling and physical combat. He decides that she could benefit from a lengthy training session at Granite Cave. While there, Shawna runs into Steven, on a spelunking mission with his Aggron, and she is instantly smitten with him. However, Brawly calls her back to her training session before she can engage him in much conversation. Steven tells Shawna that he’s currently working as a top executive at the Devon Corporation in Rustboro if she ever wants to stop by. During the next few days, Brawly sees that Shawna is getting even worse - she’s far too preoccupied with Steven. Brawly, however, tells her that her top priority is to train - as an apprentice at his gym, and possibly the one who will take over after Brawly retires, she can’t be sidetracked by outside projects. Shawna doesn’t want to hear it and runs out, heading for the port and boarding a ship. However, in her haste, she confuses the signs at the port. Only after she gets off the boat does she realize that she’s in Slateport City. Brawly sets off after her on his surfboard, but realizes that he can’t get far on the waves and resorts to paddling across the sea. Meanwhile, Shawna catches a bus to Rustboro and locates the Devon Corporation building. She asks the receptionist to see Steven, but she is turned away for not having an appointment. Shawna is undaunted - she remembers Steven telling her that he’s got an office on the twelfth floor. Determined to find her crush, Shawna prepares to put her training to good use and begins to scale the building. At the Slateport Beach, a thoroughly exhausted Brawly reaches the shore and crawls to the curb, managing to hail a cab. Upon arriving at the Devon building, Brawly works his way through the crowd that has gathered to witness the spectacle of Shawna climbing up the outer wall. Brawly calls up to her, demanding that she come down, but Shawna yells back her refusal. As she does so, she loses her grip and starts to fall, but she swiftly calls out her Medicham in midair, which casts a Barrier attack around her that softens her landing. Once back on the ground, Shawna apologizes for all she’s done, but Brawly admits that she’s shown true examples of both physical and battling strength and is really worthy of inheriting the gym someday. To make up for snapping at her, Brawly allows Shawna to go on a date with Steven. She eagerly does so - and ends up incredibly bored while Steven drones on about excavation for hours.

    “House of Sand and Spotlight Hog”
    Episode HACP06
    Original Airdate: 5/19/07
    Guest Voice: Patrick Warburton as Ditto, Robin Williams as Salamence

    In the Kanto region, Duplica has been moderately successful over the years performing her acts with Ditto and Minidit. However, she receives some unfortunate news - the local real estate council is foreclosing on her mansion. Duplica is shocked, especially since she’s made all the proper payments, but the council insists that they don’t have anything from her. The only way for her to keep her home is for her to somehow come up with the necessary 50,000,000 yen by the end of the month. Duplica decides that the best way to make the money she needs in such a short amount of time is to hire a spectacular opening act for her shows to draw a greater audience. Placing an ad on the Internet, she quickly gets a reply from husband and wife magician team Butler and Diane, who visit Duplica in person and agree to open for her. Widely known throughout the regions, Butler and Diane’s addition to the playbill draws a huge crowd to Duplica’s next show. Standing in the wings, Duplica is amazed beyond belief at the incredible illusions that Butler and Diane perform. However, when Duplica goes on, her disguise act pales in comparison to the amazing opening act, and the audience starts leaving. Duplica realizes that this does not hurt her profits, since nobody wants a refund after seeing the magic show, but inside she is disappointed that the audience walked out on her act. Butler insists that, in order to draw further profits, Duplica will need to give the audience more of what they want. Duplica reluctantly expands Butler and Diane’s act to take up half the allotted show time. In spite of the adulation the crowd gives them, Diane is still self-conscious about stealing Duplica’s thunder. Eventually, Butler and Diane get equal billing on Duplica’s marquee. At this point, Butler requests a larger cut of the profits. Deciding that she can still make enough by the end of the month, Duplica acquiesces to Butler’s request. Finally, the audience demands an encore of Butler’s act that leaves Duplica with only five minutes to perform. Enraged, Duplica fires Butler and Diane and demands her profits back. Butler refuses, but Diane insists that he comply. While attempting to escape with his share of the profits, Butler opens the front door to get to his van and runs smack into the councilmen, who are there to inform Duplica that they had the wrong house - Duplica is still financially set. Diane feels sorry for putting Duplica through such trouble and gives her the profits back, though Butler is still reluctant to do so.

    “Raging Bull****”
    Episode HACP07

    Guest Voice: John Turturro as Hitmontop

    At the fighting dojo between Goldenrod and Ecruteak City, Chigusa is prepared to enter the preliminary karate tournament with her Hitmontop. Unfortunately, they are bested within the first round and immediately disqualified. Despite taunting from her rival Shiro, Chigusa decides that she needs expert help. Her grandfather’s training methods are no longer effective, since he is so old and unable to execute the moves he describes and can only offer verbal advice. Instead, Chigusa packs her bags and heads for the Kanto region in the hopes of meeting the legendary Karate King Kiyo at the fighting dojo in Saffron City. However, Kiyo is no longer there - he has been replaced by Anthony, former manager of the P-1 Grand Prix Tournament for Fighting Pokémon. Anthony explains to Chigusa that he has not had a win in years since his original unofficial gym was shut down. Explaining that he might only have a brief period of time before the Pokémon League decides whether or not to close down this gym, he decides to make the best of his time by holding one mor P-1 Grand Prix, and makes Chigusa and Hitmontop his star fighters. Lengthy training sessions begin, while Anthony’s apprentices ready their own teams. During her training around Saffron City, Chigusa is shocked to see that Shiro has shown up in town as well, determined to top her once and for all. This merely strengthens Chigusa’s resolve - and it also motivates Anthony to push her harder. Eventually, Shiro proves to be in exquisite shape, while Chigusa’s extended training sessions wear her into the ground. She eventually realizes that Anthony is not concerned about her performance - he just wants to prove to himself that he can still train a winner. The day of the trainers’ division of the Grand Prix, she plans to confront Anthony about this, but he ushers her into the ring before she can say anything. Chigusa is horrified to see that she’s been pitted against Shiro already. Though Shiro has the upper hand initially, Chigusa remembers the advice her grandfather gave her before she left for Kanto. Inspired by his words, Chigusa manages to come within an inch of beating Shiro - but at that moment, Karate King Kiyo returns from the mountains of Johto, flanked by Pokémon League officials who have declared the gym null and void. Forced to hand the building back over to Kiyo, who then shuts it down, Anthony reassures Chigusa that, though he may never win another Grand Prix, she’s still proven herself worthy of a true tournament.

    “‘Scuse Me While I Kiss Disguise”
    Episode HACP08
    Original Airdate: 10/12/07

    In the Orange Islands, Marina is considering officially retiring as a Pokémon trainer. While filling out the form to remove her name from the Pokémon League’s official trainer register, she realizes that she has not achieved one of her goals - she has yet to capture a Dragon Pokémon. She immediately throws out the form and sets off to achieve her final goal before hanging up training for good. Knowing that Dragon Pokémon are not found on the Orange Islands, Marina sets off for the Kanto region on the back of her Lapras. However, she loses her map along the way and ends up on the shores of the Hoenn region. Trying to make the best of the situation, she decides to search for a dragon type anyway. At the lake on Route 119, Marina spots what she swears is a Dragonite - but upon closer examination, it turns out to be the disguise master Nikolai. The shock of seeing Nikolai’s costume surprises Marina, and she tumbles backwards into the water. Nikolai helps her back out and apologizes. The two of them get to talking, and after a lengthy walk, they find themselves hitting it off very well. Marina agrees to a date with Nikolai that evening - and when the date comes, she is surprised to see him still in costume. After a while, Marina finds herself warming up to Nikolai’s disguises. At the end of the night, Nikolai kisses Marina goodbye - an act that evokes something strange in Marina’s heart. She begins to suspect that she might be developing a fetish for Nikolai’s costumes, but persuades herself to put the idea out of her mind. Still, the next time she sees Nikolai, she finds herself immensely attracted to his Zigzagoon costume. Marina tries with all her might to suppress her bizarre sexual attraction - but then Nikolai invites Marina back to his apartment. About to follow Nikolai into the bedroom, Marina stops herself and explains that she can’t continue seeing Nikolai if he’s going to keep wearing the costumes. Afraid that Nikolai will be offended, Marina’s fears subside when Nikolai accepts her discomfort and tosses his costume aside. However, this reveals his incredibly short pants, and the sight of them causes Marina to double over laughing. Offended, Nikolai tells Marina to leave. Forgetting why she even came to Hoenn in the first place, Marina goes back to the Orange Islands and officially retires - and on the way out of the league building, she suddenly remembers that she never did get to catch a Dragon Pokémon.

    Yeah, I suppose...it's getting harder to think up these things, though, because most of the one-shot characters with the most potential have already been resuscitated in regular "Intensity" episodes. I'm still brainstorming, though, so keep an eye out.

    Maybe an old character like Casey or Richie could try and save the 'egg house' from team rocket

    Well, I'll think of something...right now, these are sitting on the backburner while I focus on another fanwork for a different forum (I'm drawing an "Invader ZIM" comic).

    Well, it took a lengthy period of writer's block, but I've finally written up the last five HoSo specials. I believe the final one is the best I've ever written - although the ninth one features a nice crossover with the manga series. Have fun...

    “Better Off Red”
    Episode HACP09
    Original Airdate: 12/26/07
    Guest Voice: Andy Richter as Blastoise, Steve Martin as Feraligatr

    After several dates, Dani and Yoshi have successfully drawn closer together. Seeing his friends’ relationship, Jackson begins to get depressed at the fact that he doesn’t yet have a girlfriend. To see what his chances are, he swings by a bar that evening, where he runs into a beautiful woman named Blue and her friend, Yellow. The two of them hit it off remarkably well, and Blue agrees to see Jackson again. Upon their second meeting, Jackson suggests that he introduce Blue to Dani and Yoshi. However, upon meeting them, Blue finds herself even more smitten with Yoshi than she was with Jackson. Throughout her date with Jackson, all Blue can keep her mind on is Yoshi. She confesses her feelings to Yellow, who gets the idea to start seducing Jackson herself - for she has secretly had a crush on him since she first met him in the bar. Meanwhile, Blue tells Jackson that she has a secret, but does not want to tell him just yet. That night, after her date with Jackson, Blue pays Yoshi a visit and tries to advance on him. Yoshi tries to fend her off, declaring loyalty to Dani - who calls him in the middle of the melee. After the arduous phone call, during which Yoshi has to keep pushing Blue off of him, he finally ushers her out. To harden his resolve to stay true to Dani, he calls her right back and asks her to move in with him. Meanwhile, Jackson is having similar problems of his own, as Yellow becomes so obsessed with seducing Jackson that she goes to stalker-like lengths to win his affections. To add to his puzzlement, Jackson is approached by an angry former trainer named Red, who demands to know what he’s been doing with Blue. Red explains that Blue is his girlfriend, but lately she has been away from the house for extended periods of time. Both of them set off to find out what Blue has been up to. Jackson calls Yoshi to ask if he’s seen her, and Yoshi tells him of all that Blue’s been trying to do to him. No sooner does Yoshi hang up than Blue arrives at his apartment with the intent of wooing him again. But Dani is in the process of moving in, and angrily tells Blue to get lost. When Blue doesn’t move, Dani initiates a Pokémon battle that soon deteriorates to an all-out catfight between the two female trainers. Jackson and Red arrive to break up the fracas, and Blue apologizes to Red, confessing that she can’t stay committed to any relationship. Red takes Blue home, agreeing to try and get her help for her lack of commitment. With no other girlfriend, Jackson finally agrees to a date with Yellow, but she snubs him, claiming that she’s already found someone else better - a rogue ex-trainer from New Bark Town named Silver.

    “Five Brides For Four Brothers”
    Episode HACP10
    Original Airdate: 5/23/08

    In Stone Town, the four Eevee Brothers finally decide to move out of their mansion and give up the life of Pokémon fandom that they had for years. They do, however, keep their respective Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon, and the youngest brother, Michael, still keeps his unevolved Eevee. Moving to Ecruteak City in the Johto region, the four brothers quickly rent an apartment and settle in. But after a few weeks, it becomes apparent that they are bored without something to keep them occupied. Mike suggests that the four of them play the dating scene in the hopes of he and his brothers each finding a woman that they can spend their life with. However, every bar and dance club results in their disappointment, as no girls in Ecruteak are to their liking. On the way home, the brothers stop at the Ecruteak Dance Hall, believing it to be a nightclub, where they meet up with the five Kimono Sisters. Instantly, all four brothers are smitten with the sisters, and Mike’s Eevee is surprised to see that each girl owns an Eevee evolution. The brothers introduce themselves and promise to come by and visit the girls tomorrow in order to see their dancing performances. However, upon getting home, the brothers realize that there are five kimono girls and only four of them. Deciding that one girl will have to be turned down, the brothers attend the girls’ performance the next day and try to decide who gets who. Elsewhere in the dance hall, Mike’s Eevee is hassled by the girls’ Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, and Umbreon, who dare him to evolve. However, Espeon defends Eevee, saying that it still doesn’t have to evolve if it doesn’t want. Meanwhile, each brother hits on the girl they chose, but Mike still finds himself torn between Sakura and one of her sisters. Unable to decide, he leaves the dance theater empty handed while his brothers have all arranged dates with their chosen girls. Eventually, Mike decides on Sakura's sister and figures that he’ll have to let her sister down easy. But when he returns to the dance hall, he can’t bring himself to disappoint Sakura. Instead, he decides to let his Eevee decide for him by pointing to the trainer whom he believes best befits him. Eevee selects Sakura, since she’s the most amicable and considerate, and her Espeon stuck up for him earlier. Sakura agrees to a date, and to Mike’s relief, her sister isn’t thoroughly devastated. Eevee is incredibly happy for his trainer - so much so, that his happiness level reaches its maximum, inadvertently evolving him into an Espeon.

    In the Fuschia City Municipal Courthouse, Dr. Akihibara is on trial for hacking the computers of the Silph Company in Saffron City. Akihibara claims that it was an accident triggered by one of his virus-infected Porygon, and the court finds him innocent. Relieved to be released, Akihibara decides to make a new life for himself and sets off to find a new job. He receives one in the Johto region, working as a computer programmer at the Johto Institute of Technology. Elsewhere on the campus, former Violet City Pokémon Institute student Zack is horrified to receive early alert notices from all his classes. His teachers instruct him to bring his grades up, or else he faces the prospect of flunking. Zack becomes desperate, taking up tutoring sessions and studying even harder than ever before, but when his final exams come and go, he’s devastated to see his abysmally low results. In the few days before graduation, Zack approaches Dr. Akihibara and implores his help - he wants the professor to hack into the school’s records and change his grades. Akihibara refuses initially, claiming that it was Zack’s own fault, but his will power breaks and he finally gives in. Penetrating the security system of the school’s computer network, Akihibara manages to up all of Zack’s grades to the point where he’s now registered as having straight A’s. Zack attends his graduation ceremony, and is almost honored for his perfect grades, until his teachers burst in and announce that there’s no way Zack could have gotten the grades he’s reported as having. Dragged away by the police for the hacking, Zack claims that Dr. Akihibara did all the work, and the cops arrest him, too. In jail, Akihibara vows not to let himself be locked away again. During the trial, Zack insists that Dr. Akihibara was the one who actually hacked the computers, but when Akihibara takes the stand, he denies ever having met Zack in the first place. Zack is appalled, and during the recess, he implores that Akihibara help him out. Akihibara refuses, but the professor’s Porygon smacks him in the head and tells him what a horrible person he is. Realizing that he’s being selfish, Akihibara takes the stand again and confesses to the crime. Zack is merely fined and required to take his courses over again, while Akihibara is locked up in the Kanto Minimum Security Prison for five years. Akihibara, however, is happy for at least having a slightly clean conscience.

    At their second jobs at the Mossdeep Space Center, Tate and Liza find that their work is constantly being demeaned, as the local elementary school brings numerous fist grade classes to the center on field trips. Tired of explaining the workings of the space center to six-year-olds, Tate and Liza decide that they need somebody else to handle the visitors while they tend to the real research. Sending out a request for an assistant, Tate and Liza receive their first applicant - Seymour the Scientist. Claiming that he’s always wanted to work in space exploration, Seymour goes off on a spiel about his research on the Clefairy family. Tate and Liza hire him and immediately put him to work as a tour guide, leading the latest first grade class around the center. At first, Seymour is content with starting out slow, but it soon becomes apparent to him that this is all that Tate and Liza hired him for. Upset, Seymour asks Tate and Liza for a chance to work with them studying the results of the satellites and probes that have been launched, but Tate and Liza assure him that he’ll get there in good time. However, Seymour knows that he won’t be promoted and becomes rather bitter. Realizing Seymour’s dilemma, Tate and Liza decide to take a lunch break, leaving Seymour in charge of their control panel. Seymour finds the work to be rather easy, until he puts his feet up and accidentally hits a launch button. He realizes that he’s activated the engines to the open shuttle that’s currently on the launch pad - one that is currently being toured by a group of visiting first graders. Terrified, Seymour dashes off to save the children, but finds that, as an apprentice, he doesn’t have authorized access to the launch site. Desperate, Seymour actually scales the side of the launch tower and manages to usher the children out of the unmanned shuttle moments before it lifts off. With nobody at the helm, the rocket crashes back to Earth and explodes, decimating a good portion of the space center. However, Seymour is relieved that he saved the children and teachers. Nonetheless, Tate and Liza see what Seymour has done and immediately fire him.

    Guest Voice: Adam West as Suicune

    In his Poké Ball workshop in Azalea Town, Kurt comes across the GS Ball that Ash gave him almost fifteen years ago. He never had been able to open it, and seeing it again rekindles his desire to discover just what’s inside. However, his best efforts prove futile, as nothing he does can get the ball to split. Kurt remembers just how much time and effort he wasted on the ball, when that time could have been better spent customizing Poké Balls or spending time with his daughter. Kurt deduces that the GS Ball has resulted in him wasting a good portion of his life. Exhausted, Kurt decides to take a walk in the nearby Ilex Forest and clear his head. While wandering among the trees, Kurt runs into Eusine, the legendary Pokémon researcher, who explains that he’s been studying the local shrine in the center of the woods. He’s curious as to what it’s purpose is, but Kurt asks Eusine’s help in opening the GS Ball. Eusine examines the ball and notices that its shape perfectly fits an indentation on a pedestal in the Ilex Shrine. Suspecting that it may serve a purpose there, Eusine places the ball on the pedestal - and much to both men’s surprise, the ball finally springs open, emitting an immensely powerful white light. When the light subsides, Kurt and Eusine find that they are still in the Ilex Forest, but things look slightly different. Upon exiting the woods, they find that the ball has slingshot them fifteen years into the past, back to 2001. Wondering how to get back to the present, Eusine recalls the legend of Celebi, the Pokémon able to control time itself. Eusine knows that the only Pokémon that can summon Celebi is the Suicune he has been chasing for years, and sets off to Ecruteak City to find it. Meanwhile, Kurt discovers that he’s in March 2001 - the month in which Ash and his friends first dropped off the GS Ball to him. Realizing that his life is about to be devastated by the introduction of this ball, Kurt sets off to stop Ash, Misty, and Brock before they can deliver the ball to him. Meanwhile, Eusine combs the Tin Tower in Ecruteak City, trying to summon Suicune with his Clear Bell. Finally, Suicune appears, but he claims that it’ll take him a while to find Celebi. Back in Azalea Town, Kurt tries everything he can to stop Ash and his friends, including setting traps for them outside of the town, but they manage to overcome his every obstacle. Realizing that this old man is trying to trip them up, Ash sends forth Pikachu, Chikorita, and Cyndaquil to combat Kurt, sending him flying. As the three trainers arrive at Kurt’s house, the present Kurt sneaks in through the back door and remains out of sight. Hearing how much his daughter is extolling him for being a great ballmaker and an even greater father, Kurt resolves not to let his future be decimated by the GS Ball. While Kurt and the trainers are outside collecting Apricorns (during which, Brock catches his Pineco), the present Kurt steals the GS Ball and makes a mad dash for the Ilex Forest. Eusine meets up with him, with Celebi and Suicune in tow, and Celebi transports Kurt back to the present. Relieved, Kurt returns home to find his daughter there, more respectful of him than before. Pleased that he’s changed his life for the better, Kurt rids himself of the GS Ball by throwing it down Slowpoke Well.

    Yes, we finally found out the purpose of the GS Ball. OMG, I can't believe Kurt wanted to stop himself getting it, even if his daughter respects him now. Also, Eucine finally gets both Suicune and Celebi, so hurrah for him. I have always loved your episodes Jesse, and it'll be a shame to see them finally stop. Good luck with any future projects.

    I don't like to think that he caught them, since it's been established that catching legendaries in the anime has a tendency to throw off the natural order. But he at least met them, which I'm sure would tide him over.
