Summary

English Official Summary

The time for Ash’s Gym battle with Burgh, the Castelia City Gym Leader and Bug-type Pokémon expert, has finally arrived! Burgh’s first Pokémon is Dwebble, and Ash sends out his Tepig. From the outset, Burgh’s Dwebble shows impressive speed thanks to an extra-light rock on its back, and its powerful Rock Wrecker attack quickly knocks Tepig out! Next, Ash brings out his Sewaddle. Burgh is pleased to see his old friend from Pinwheel Forest—until Sewaddle makes quick work of Dwebble by knocking the rock off of its back with a well-placed Razor Leaf, evening the score! When Burgh brings out his tough Whirlipede, Ash decides to stick with Sewaddle—who evolves into Swadloon in the midst of the battle! Swadloon’s powerful Energy Ball defeats Whirlipede, leaving Burgh with only his beloved Leavanny. The Nurturing Pokémon quickly overpowers Swadloon, leaving Leavanny to battle against Ash’s Pikachu! Pikachu soon finds itself trapped by Leavanny’s String Shot. With its tail all wrapped up, Pikachu is way off balance and having trouble aiming! After several attempts to shake off the sticky string fail, Ash sends Pikachu diving straight into Leavanny’s Leaf Storm. It’s a risky move, but the sharp leaves cut right through the strings, and Pikachu is free! Back up to speed, Pikachu defeats Leavanny with a powerful Electro Ball, and Ash excitedly claims the Insect Badge! Meanwhile, the Team Rocket trio have been getting the silent treatment from their Boss, Giovanni. His secretary advises them to act on their own and do their best for Team Rocket. Jessie, James, and Meowth decide to go back to doing what they do best—annoying Ash while trying to steal Pikachu! And when James befriends a hungry Yamask that wanders into their cave, Jessie proclaims this an excellent omen for their future...

Mais la vitesse de Crabicoque, augmentée par la légereté du rocher placé sur son dos et associée à un puissant Roc-Boulet, a raison de Gruikui.

Italian Official Summary

La Lotta nella Palestra di Austropoli tra Ash e il Capopalestra Artemisio sta per iniziare: i due contendenti possono utilizzare al massimo tre Pokémon. Artemisio comincia con Dwebble (tipo Coleottero e Roccia), mentre Ash mette in campo Tepig. La velocità di Dwebble, però, grazie alla roccia superleggera che ha sul dorso, unita alla mossa Devastomasso, mette Tepig al tappeto. Quando è il suo turno, Ash sorprende tutti mettendo in campo Sewaddle, che fa cadere la roccia di Dwebble e dà ad Ash la prima vittoria. Artemisio schiera Whirlipede, mentre Ash continua con Sewaddle, che si evolve in Swadloon durante la lotta. La potente Energipalla di Swadloon sconfigge Whirlipede e così Artemisio mette in campo il suo amato Leavanny. Leavanny sconfigge Swadloon e Ash chiama Pikachu, ricordando ad Artemisio che il suo Pikachu è diverso da tutti gli altri. Intrappolato dai fili di Leavanny, Pikachu, guidato da Ash, si tuffa coraggiosamente nella Verdebufera di Leavanny e si libera. Recuperata la sua velocità, Pikachu riesce a sconfiggere Leavanny con una potente Energipalla ed Ash può gioire per la sua terza Medaglia nella Lega di Unima: la Medaglia Scarabeo! Intanto il Team Rocket non riesce a parlare con Giovanni, ma solo con la segretaria, che li invita ad agire autonomamente nell’interesse del Team Rocket. Il trio decide di concentrarsi di nuovo sulla cattura di Pikachu, quando viene avvicinato da uno Yamask affamato che diventa il Pokémon di James.

Portuguese Official Summary

A Batalha de Ginásio de Castelia entre Ash e o Lìder do Ginásio, Burgh, está prestes a começar e nós sabemos que cada lado pode usar no máximo 3 Pokémon. Burgh começa com seu Dwebble (um tipo Inseto e Pedra) e Ash começa com seu Tepig. Mas Dwebble é super rápido, graças a uma pedra super leve em suas costas que juntamente com seu Rolo Destruidor força Tepig a sair. Em seguida, Ash surpreende a todos usando seu Sewaddle, que tira a pedra das costas de Dwebble e dá sua 1ª vitória a Ash. Burgh traz seu Whirlipede e Ash continua firme com seu Swadloon, que, na verdade evolui para Swadloon durante a batalha! O poderoso Esfera de Energia de Swadloon derrota Whirlipede, cada vez que Burgh traz seu adorado Leavanny. Leavanny domina Swadloon e Ash chama Pikachu, lembrando Burgh que Pikachu é diferente de qualquer Pokémon que ele já tenha visto! Preso pelos fios de Leavanny, Ash, ordena bravamente que Pikachu mergulhe dentro do Tempestade de Folhas de Leavanny e se liberte. Depois, recuperando sua velocidade, Pikachu derrota Leavanny e Ash ganha sua 3ª Insígnia de Ginásio de Unova, a Insígnia do Inseto! Enquanto isso, a Equipe Rocket não consegue falar com Giovanni e é advertida pela secretária dele para agirem por conta própria e fazerem o que acharem melhor pela Equipe Rocket. Decidindo concentrarem-se mais uma vez em pegar Pikachu, de repente, se aproxima deles um Yamask faminto, que se torna Pokémon de James.

Finnish Official Summary

Castelian saliottelu Ashin ja salijohtaja Burghin välillä on alkamaisillaan ja ottelussa saa molemmilla puolilla olla korkeintaan kolme Pokémonia. Burgh aloittaa Dwebblellään (hyönteis- ja kivityyppiä) ja Ash ottaa ensiksi Tepigin. Dwebble on kuitenkin nopea, koska sen kivinen kuori on hyvin kevyttä kivilajia, ja niinpä se tyrmää lopulta Tepigin Rock Wrecker -liikkeellään. Seuraavaksi Ash yllättää kaikki käyttämällä Sewaddleaan, joka jysäyttää Dwebblen ulos kivikuorestaan ja tuo Ashille tämän ensimmäisen voittonsa. Burgh tuo kentälle Whirlipeden ja Ash pitää edelleen Sewaddlen, joka kehittyy ottelun aikana Swadlooniksi! Swadloonin voimakas Energy Ball päihittää Whirlipeden, jolloin Burgh kutsuu peliin rakkaan Leavannynsa. Leavanny osoittautuu ylivoimaiseksi Swadloonille, joten Ash joutuu turvautumaan Pikachuun ja vakuuttaa Burghille, että tällaista Pikachua hän ei ole koskaan nähnyt! Kun Pikachu jää ansaan Leavannyn seittiin, Ash pyytää sitä rohkeasti sukeltamaan Leavannyn Leaf Stormiin ja niin se pääseekin vapaaksi. Saatuaan liikekykynsä takaisin, Pikachu kukistaa Leavannyn voimakkaalla Energy Ballilla ja Ash voittaa kolmannen saliottelunsa Unovassa – ja saa siitä hyvästä Hyönteismerkin! Sillä välin Rakettiryhmä ei pääse puheisiin Giovannin kanssa, vaan tämän sihteeri kehottaa heitä toimimaan itsenäisesti ja edistämään Rakettiryhmän etua. Niinpä he päättävät keskittyä jälleen sieppaamaan Pikachun, kun yhtäkkiä heidän luokseen ilmestyy nälkäinen Yamask, josta tulee Jamesin Pokémon...

Dutch Official Summary

Het Castelia Gym Gevecht tussen Ash en Gym Leader Burgh gaat zo beginnen en we horen dat ieder maximaal drie Pokémon mag inzetten. Burgh begint met zijn Dwebble, een Insect en Steensoort, en Ash begint met zijn Tepig. Maar Dwebbles snelheid, die hij dankt aan een super lichte steen op zijn rug, samen met zijn Steenpletter zijn te sterk voor Tepig. Vervolgens verbaast Ash iedereen door Sewaddle te gebruiken, die de steen van Dwebble van zijn rug afslaat en Ash de eerste winst bezorgt. Burgh haalt zijn Whirlipede tevoorschijn en Ash blijft bij Sewaddle, die tijdens het Gevecht evolueert in Swadloon! Swadloons krachtige Energiebal verslaat Whirlipede en dan komt Burgh met zijn geliefde Leavanny. Leavanny overmeestert Swadloon en Ash kiest voor Pikachu. Hij herinnert Burgh eraan dat Pikachu anders is dan alle andere Pikachu die hij ooit heeft gezien. Wanneer Pikachu gevangen zit in de draden van Leavanny, laat Ash hem moedig duiken in de Bladstorm van Leavanny en bevrijdt hij zich.

Burgh begynner med sin Dwebble (En Insekt- og Stein-type), og Ash begynner med sin Tepig. Men Dwebble sin fart, takket være en superlett stein den har på ryggen, sammen med dens Rock Wrecker, tvinger Tepig ut. Så overrasker Ash alle med å bruke sin Sewaddle, som slår Dwebble sin stein av ryggen dens og gir Ash sin første, og Ash holder på Sewaddle, som faktisk utvikler seg til Swadloon under kampen! Swadloon sin kraftge Energy Ball slår Whirlipede, og da tar Burgh inn sin kjære Leavanny. Leavanny overmanner Swadloon, og Ash tar inn Pikachu, og minner Burgh på at Pikachu ikker er som noen annen Pikachu han har sett! Fanget av Leavannys tråder, får Ash Pikachu til å modig hoppe inn i Leavanny sin Leaf Storm og kommer seg fri. Så, når den er tilbake i spill, slår Pikachu Leavanny med en kraftig Energy Ball, og Ash vinner sin tredje Unova Gym Bagde – En Insect Badge! I mellomtiden klarer ikke Team Rocket å få kontakt med Giovanni, og blir rådet av hans sekretær om å "handle på egenhånd og å gjøre det de tror er best for Team Rocket."

De beslutter sig for igen at koncentrere sig om at fange Pikachu, men pludselig bliver de kontaktet af en sulten Yamask, som bliver James’ Pokémon...

Culture Edit

The Sunday morning variety show Pokémon Smash! (ポケモンスマッシュ!) rebroadcasted this episode as a Special Edition of the Pokémon Library (ポケモンライブラリー特別編) on Pokémon Smash! Episode 27 (ポケモンスマッシュ! #27) since the episode originally aired only a few days after the Sendai Earthquake and tsunami.

The reason for the special rebroadcast was due to the Sendai Earthquake and tsunami, it disrupted many people's schedules and as a result they were unable to see the original airing of the episode.
00:15

Script Error

At the beginning of the episode, a notice was posted stating that the originally scheduled episode would not air but be broadcast at a later date.

The notice stated: "For convenience, the content of this broadcast has been changed. 'The Rocket Gang VS the Plasma Gang!', scheduled to air today, will be broadcast at another time. (つごうにより、番組の内容を変更しておおくりしています 今日放送予定だった「ロケット団VSプラズマ団!」は、またあらためて放送します)

The original broadcast also had Earthquake/Tsunami scroll news tickers on the left side and bottom.
03:07

Script Error

When referring to a Pokémon, the name of the Pokémon is also its species. The verbal inflection that the dub voice Billy Bob Thompson uses seems to indicate that he is talking about the Pokémon species in the second sentence. While the subject of the second sentence is still supposed to be referring to "Dwebble's rock", the voice inflection and the way its worded makes it seem like Burgh is saying that his Dwebble's rock weighs less than most Dwebble (Dwebble referring to the Pokémon species).

The person transcribing the English dub closed captions also seemed to have the same initial thought that Burgh in the English dub was comparing the Dwebble species instead of it referring to "Dwebble's" rock possessively.

Burgh: The rock that my Dwebble carries on its back is special. It weighs much less than most Dwebble's.
Burgh English Closed Captions: The rock that my Dwebble carries on its back is special. It weighs much less than most Dwebbles.
Arti: The rock my Ishizumai carries on its back is special, you see. It's lighter than usual rocks.
(アーティ): 僕のイシズマイが背負っている岩は特別でね。普通の岩よりも軽いのさ。

04:44

Script Error

Dent refers to Satoshi with his standard 'taste' comments while Cilan in the English dub says he has a familiar 'scent'. Taste and scent are referring to two different senses.

Cilan: Ah, the familiar scent of an Ash-style choice.
Dent: Well, this taste suits Satoshi...
(デント): まぁ サトシらしいテイストだけど。

10:11

Culture Edit

Usually there is 1 or 2 screens of sponsors shown just before the commercial break in the Japanese broadcasts of Pocket Monsters. As this was the first episode of Best Wishes to air after the Sendai Tsunami/Earthquake, there was only one sponsor for this episode during its original airing: Medianet Pictures which is basically just a subsidiary of TV Tokyo.
11:25

Script Error

Dent in the Japanese original states in English that Satoshi's Kurumayu produces a new 'flavor' while Cilan in the English dub says its following a new 'recipe' instead.

Cilan: Now that Sewaddle's evolved, Swadloon's following a new recipe!
Dent: To think it produces a new flavor once it evolves...
(デント): クルマユに進化して新しいフレーバーをかもし出すとは…。

13:41

Script Error

While Team Rocket was talking to the secretary, they kept calling him by his name Giovanni (サカキ) just like Rocket Gang did in the Japanese original. Rocket Gang continued to call him by his name throughout the episode but after the conversation with the secretary ended they went back to calling him the 'boss' in the English dub.

Jessie: We're not gonna let him down 'cause we're gonna catch Pikachu for the Boss once and for all!
Musashi: We'll definitely get that strong Pikachu and bring it to Sakaki-sama!
(ムサシ): あの強いピカチュウを必ずやゲットしサカキ様のもとへ!

Script Error

Arti specifically says Satoshi's Kurumayu 'gutsy heart' (根性ハート) in the Japanese original. Burgh says Ash's Swadloon has a lot of 'courage'. While the English dub line has the same meaning as the Japanese original, its just another instance of the English dub changing something that is said in English in the Japanese original that didn't really need to be changed.

Burgh: It takes a lot of courage to break free by using an attack on yourself and then taking any resulting damage.
Arti: It has quite the gutsy heart for using a move at the risk of inflicting damage upon itself.
(アーティ): 自らのダメージを覚悟で技を出すとはなかなかの根性ハートだね。

Script Error

Ash in the English dub tells Oshawatt he'd be up to battle 'next time'. In the 4th gym battle Ash uses his Palpitoad, Snivy and Pikachu again and thereby breaks his promise.

Ash: Oshawott, you're up next time.
Satoshi: Mijumaru, another time.
(サトシ): ミジュマル また今度な。

Script Error

The English dub removes Dent's best wine 'vintage' (ビンテージ) reference and replaces it with Cilan saying Pikachu is the main ingredient in Ash's strategy.

Cilan: Pikachu is the main ingredient in Ash's strategy recipe!
Dent: Pikachu is Satoshi's number one vintage, after all.
(デント): ピカチュウは サトシにとっていちばんのビンテージだからね。

20:16

Script Error

Once again 'flavor' is removed from Cilan's comment and is replaced with recipe ingredients.

Cilan: With every battle, your strategy recipe adds more ingredients!
Dent: Satoshi, you produce a new flavor every time.
(デント): サトシは毎回 新しいフレーバーをかもし出してくれる。

This episode did not air in its standard resolution as there was vertical and horizontal emergency news scroll bars on the screen and the actual episode was shrunk in the top right corner. There were also extra notices at the beginning of the episode stating that there are episodes (BW23&24) that were supposed to air before this episode and will air at a later time.

The gym battle was okay, wasn't spectacular or anything but it got Satoshi another badge and another evolution.

A really nice episode, though not quite spectacular, I agree. But I can't help but be a little bothered by the fact it's the second time Satoshi gets a badge thanks to a Pokémon he's never used before (unless he's used Koromori during the Rocket Gang episodes), while his more 'experienced' Pokémon (Pokabu) is just plain useless and can barely land a single hit.
It was really nice for the bug Pokémon to evolve, and it did make sense, since Bug Pokémon usually evolve quite fast. I loved how he used String shot to battle and dodge attacks.

And of course, this episode had awesome music tracks. Looks like Shinji Miyasaki just keeps composing great music with the game's soundtrack. And I just can't get enough of that 'Best Wishes' instrumental track...

However, I was a bit disappointed with the Rocket Gang's part, because I just couldn't understand exactly what was going on (like why he's telling them they're free to do whatever they want), since the two previous episodes did not air as scheduled. I just can't wait for them to finally be broadcast.

But I was still glad to have some good ol' fashioned 'let's-catch-Pikachu-for-Sakaki-sama' lines of dialogue. Maybe they try to catch it in the next episode, who knows?

I really love that track too. It's very fun to listen too. It really has a good beat and sound to it that's great to listen to over and over again.

Other than the obvious, Tsunami and Earthquake warnings in the initial airing of this episode, there wasn't anything too out of the ordinary in the English dub. There was one line they could have reworded differently; "It weighs much less than most Dwebble's." They needed to reintroduce the 'rock' subject in the sentence so it didn't get confused with Dwebble as a species or just drop saying Dwebble again in that line. "It weighs much less than most Dwebble rocks." would have worked out better.

It was rather strange that Kurumiru evolved so quickly even though Satoshi did not use it for much before this episode. I was kindof disappointed by the lack of episodes that focus on Kurumayu, since I think its facial expression could lend itself to some interesting things.
I don't really like the new animation of Hyper Beam. The old animation was pretty classic and I'd rather have the game change the animation to fit the anime rather than the other way around. It was cool seeing Hahakomori and Kurumayu fighting, since they were already familiar with each other from a few episodes back. It seemed pretty realistic that Satoshi would rely on Pikachu after his other Pokémon fainted. I would have liked it if Artie had used a Pendora instead of a Hoiga, though.
