Recap

They all go in the cave, which has light strung all over. It is confusing the Pokemon that live there. Seymour says some troublemakers have put up the lights and are after the moon stone. It supposedly can increase a Pokemon's power. At that point, a Clefairy jumps out with something in its hand. Ash wants to capture it, but Seymour says he can't. All of a sudden, we see Meowth's shadow, which frightens the Clefairy. Then Team Rocket appears, using a pick axe and shovel in their theme routine. Seymour says "They sure are showoffs" and the gang argues with Team Rocket. Out comes Koffing and Ekans...and Butterfree and Brock throws a Poke ball. He has a Zubat that he captured earlier. Butterfree and Zubat double team and defeat Team Rocket. However, Meowth escapes. Meanwhile, the Clefairy skips out of the cave with Misty and Seymour right behind. They try to help it, but it ends up knocking all of them in the water, Meowth included. Misty counters with Staru, who fills Meowth up with water. He literally blasts off.. ..

Episode Quotes
Seymour: The Moon Stone is an awesome boulder. A million years old or even older. Deep in these caves the meteor hides, though no explorer has found the place of the legendary rock from space. We've studied its fragments for many an hour and discovered it increases a Pokémon's power. And that is why the attackers are here. They've come to take the Moon Stone or so I fear.

Seymour: "(while the Clefairy use Metronome)" It's an attack the Clefairy use called the Metronome. I've never seen the Clefairy use the Metronome before. Who knows what's gonna happen?!

James: What's that unusual sound?
Jessie: His knees are shaking.



Episode Goofs
In Dub, Ash makes a reference to the Macarena when Pikachu uses charades to speak to him.

This is the first time Brock meets Team Rocket, but he acts like he already knows them.

James's Koffing uses Counter in this episode, even though Koffing aren't able to learn this move in the games.


In Dub, "Cerulean City" is translated on the sign directing towards it. Gary's message changes from "Shigeru is the best! Satoshi is an idiot!" to "Gary was here! Ash is a loser!".
