Episode #223: Throwing In The Noctowl
EVIL HOLIDAY SOCK! (mallets it) >_<
Back in Transit Town, they're trying to catch the ferry back to Olivine City...according to Jemina(on the phone), Jasmine's ready for the gym battle now that Ampharos is feeling better. Cool! Badge number six coming up! ^_^
Ash and friends are waiting for the ferry...which doesn't seem to be there yet. -_-" They ask an old fisherman...ak, it left an hour before. The next one isn't till tomorrow, but the old guy tells them about a "Hoothoot Express" plane they can take. The old guy mutters something about how "dressing up as a fisherman" helps him get new customers. ^_^"""""
Anywho, they get to the airfield, which seems to be a bit run-down...and despite the fact that the "fisherman's" hat covered most of his face, Ash and friends still recognize the pilot(Wings Alexander) as the fisherman from earlier. This and they never see through Team Rocket's disguises?
Wings has to take care of his Pokemon first...some Sandshrews, Weepinbells, etc....and he has a flashback about his great adventures with his Hoothoot. Ash and friends even lend a hand...Bellsprouts and even Ponytas. Wings says the flight is free because of their help, cool. ^_^
Onto the plane! Looks like Wings' copilot is a Noctowl(which evolved from his old Hoothoot). It's kinda old so it just sleeps all the time...time to take off...well, maybe. Forgot to fuel up the plane. Ash and friends fall over
Ash and Misty are enjoying the view as they fly across the sea...but Wings sees a drop in pressure, looks like a storm coming. Why do they ALWAYS hit a storm when they fly?
Speaking of which, look who else is caught in the storm...a familiar-looking Meowth balloon. CUE THE SHORT MOTTO~! Meowth: "Never trust those internet weather forecasts..."
TR call out for help as the plane passes by...they call a truce for the time being. "WOBBUFFET!"
Wings says it's his duty to help anyone in distress up in the air...Ash understands and so do Misty and Brock...
Waitaminute, what ELSE is floating around up there...JIGGLYPUFF? <(@_@)>
A&M vow to keep their eyes on Team Rocket as long as they're on board...AK, the floor gives out under them! James and Wobbuffet are hanging on, Jessie's hanging onto them, Meowth's hanging onto her, and Meowth's hanging onto Togepi. O_O
They get back up into the plane, but now there's another problem...an engine's broken! Looks like this plane's been in service for quite a while...Ash turns the cap around(OLDSCHOOL!) and says he'll take care of this...
Who's That Pokemon: Mankey
Ash opens a door and climbs up...what does he think he's gonna do? Brock sends Crobat to help him hang on as he sends out Bulbasaur. Vine Whip ties down the engine, but now the OTHER one's falling off! Two engines, two grass Pokemon, so enter Bayleef! Ak, the plane takes a nosedive!
Misty decides Ash needs more help, so she sends Staryu and Poliwhirl out to Water Gun downward and boost the plane! Nice move!
Close one, it looks like things are okay now...Meowth spots something on the wing...JIGGLYPUFF! <(@_@)> Time for a song, at a really bad time...Bulbasaur and Bayleef both fall asleep and the Vine Whips lose their grip...ak...everyone else is asleep and AK, Jigglypuff gets hit by a lightning bolt and blown away. O_O
Ash and Wings wake up first as the plane's going down...and the old Noctowl has been sleeping through it all. Wings remembers the day when his Hoothoot evolved, saying that it would have gotten him out of a jam like this in their younger days...
Misty and Brock wake up...just in time to see Noctowl spring awake and fly out with a rope to tie things together! The grass Pokemon are back in action, and Ash sends his own Noctowl to lend a hand! It looks like they're gonna pull through after all...but Ash is in a dangerous position outside. Brock sends Pikachu out to draw the lightning away with its own electricity. Ash, living dangerously, is STILL riding out on the wings(with Crobat keeping him there).
NOW Jessie wants to grab Pikachu, but James wants to just take it easy right now...
Wings sees a light...the Olivine lighthouse! They've been blown off course, though, and they're near a mountain! A quick turn nearly sends Ash and Team Rocket flying...ak, fog sucks. Team Rocket is happy that they'll land safely..."WOBBUFFET!" But the floor gives out under them again...whoops, so much for that. ^_^"""""
Finally coming in for a landing...Ash, GET BACK IN THE PLANE ALREADY...
Jemina waves to them from the lighthouse, where Jasmine and Ampharos are waiting...it looks like Ash will make it in time for tomorrow's gym battle after all. And the old Noctowl saved the day just like in old times.
It's a holiday sock party, right here on Kids WB, a sock a sock a sock a sock a sock...a sock party! malletmalletmallet ...better... ^_^""""""
