Summary

English Official Summary

During a lunch break, our heroes are shocked when the ground suddenly falls out from under Ash and Pikachu, sending them sliding through a long underground tunnel! At the end of the wild ride, Ash and Pikachu come face to face with an old friend, the Sandile who wears sunglasses. It appears that Sandile has traveled a long way to challenge Pikachu to a rematch! Their battle is quickly interrupted by a mischievous Ducklett who wanders out of the bushes. It turns out this Ducklett is part of a thieving trio, and one by one, they steal Cilan’s serving dome, then Sandile’s sunglasses, and finally Ash’s hat! Retrieving these items proves to be a formidable task, as the three Ducklett have some tricks up their feathery sleeves! Sandile and Pikachu team up to take on the three Ducklett. During the fray, Pikachu learns a new move—Electro Ball! The powerful zap sends the thieves on their way, and our heroes are able to retrieve their stolen items. Sandile and Pikachu get back to their original plan and resume their battle—which ends with Sandile evolving into Krokorok right before Pikachu’s Electro Ball sends it flying! Ash plans for another rematch next time they meet Krokorok, and our heroes resume their much-sidetracked journey toward Castelia City and Ash’s next Gym battle!

French Official Summary

En se livrant à un petit entraînement et en déjeunant sur le chemin de Volucité, nos Héros sont stupéfaits de voir Sacha et Pikachu tomber dans un grand trou et disparaître ! Iris et Rachid ne savent pas que Sacha et Pikachu sont tombés dans un trou creusé par le Mascaïman aux lunettes de soleil qu’ils avaient rencontré auparavant. Mascaïman est venu de loin pour se battre contre Pikachu ! Mais soudain, un vilain Couaneton arrive sur le champ de bataille – il s’agit en fait de trois Couaneton ensemble. Un par un, ils prennent la cloche de service de Rachid, les lunettes de soleil de Mascaïman, et finalement, la casquette de Sacha ! Retrouver ces objets s’avère ardu car les trois Couaneton semblent être de véritables bandits mal élevés. Mais Mascaïman se lance sur eux, assisté de Pikachu qui apprend soudain un nouveau mouvement : Boule Élek ! Cette attaque envoie au loin les trois Couaneton et nos Héros peuvent récupérer les objets volés. Mascaïman revient alors à l’objet de sa visite : son Combat contre Pikachu. L’affrontement se termine par une égalité, mais Mascaïman a évolué en Escroco ! Escroco fait ensuite de chaleureux adieux à nos Héros, qui se remettent en route vers Volucité. Sacha est heureux que la confrontation avec les trois Couaneton ait permis à Pikachu d’apprendre un nouveau et puissant mouvement : Boule Élek !

German Official Summary

Auf ihrem Weg nach Stratos City legen unsere Helden eine kleine Pause ein, um ein wenig zu trainieren und ihr Mittagessen zuzubereiten. Doch plötzlich brechen Ash und Pikachu im Boden ein und verschwinden in einem riesigen Loch, das von dem Ganovil mit der Sonnenbrille gegraben wurde. Ganovil ist ihnen den langen Weg bis dorthin gefolgt, um Pikachu zu einem Kampf herauszufordern. Doch bevor sich unsere Freunde versehen, erscheint ein Piccolente, das nur Unsinn im Kopf hat, auf dem Kampffeld! Tatsächlich handelt es sich sogar um drei Piccolente, die zusammen Unfug treiben! Nach und nach stibitzen sie Bennys Servierglocke, Ganovils Sonnenbrille und schließlich Ashs Mütze! Diese Gegenstände wieder zurückzubekommen, erweist sich als schwieriger als erwartet, da die drei Piccolente einzig und allein darauf aus sind, Chaos zu verbreiten und Unmut zu stiften. Während Ganovil unterstützt von Pikachu gegen sie kämpft,, erlernt Pikachu plötzlich eine neue Attacke: Elektroball! Diese Attacke befördert Piccolente im hohen Bogen durch die Luft. Unsere Helden sind froh, dass sie endlich ihre gestohlenen Sachen wiederhaben. Doch dann erinnern sie sich an den eigentlichen Grund für Ganovils Besuch, und Ganovil und Pikachu kämpfen gegeneinander. Obwohl der Kampf unentschieden endet, entwickelt sich Ganovil zu Rokkaiman weiter! Rokkaiman verabschiedet sich, und unsere Helden setzen ihre Reise nach Stratos City fort. Ash ist glücklich, dass Pikachu durch den Kampf gegen die drei Piccolente eine ganz neue Attacke gelernt hat: Elektroball!

Italian Official Summary

Durante una sosta per l’allenamento e il pranzo lungo la strada per Austropoli, i nostri eroi rimangono a bocca aperta quando Ash e Pikachu spariscono cadendo in un lungo tunnel. Iris e Spighetto non sanno che Ash e Pikachu sono caduti in un buco scavato dal Sandile con gli occhiali che avevano già incontrato in precedenza. Sandile ha percorso una lunga strada per sfidare Pikachu in una lotta! All’improvviso compare un dispettoso Ducklett, o meglio, ben tre Ducklett! Uno alla volta, fanno sparire il coprivivande di Spighetto, poi gli occhiali da sole di Sandile e infine il cappello di Ash! Il recupero di questi oggetti si rivela una vera e propria impresa, perché i tre Ducklett non si dimostrano affatto gentili. Ma quando Sandile li attacca affiancato da Pikachu, Pikachu all’improvviso impara una nuova mossa: Energisfera! Questa mossa mette in fuga i tre Ducklett e i nostri eroi riescono a recuperare gli oggetti rubati. Si ritorna così al motivo iniziale della visita di Sandile: Sandile e Pikachu si sfidano in una lotta. Malgrado questa finisca in pareggio, Sandile si evolve in Krokorok! A quel punto Krokorok saluta i nostri eroi, e mentre continuano il viaggio verso Austropoli, Ash è felice perché l’incontro con i tre Ducklett ha fatto sì che Pikachu imparasse una nuova potente mossa: Energisfera!

Portuguese Official Summary

Parando para um pequeno treino e um almoço a caminho da Cidade de Castelia, nossos heróis ficam subitamente chocados quando Ash e Pikachu descem por um enorme buraco e desaparecem! Sem saber, Ash, Iris, Cilan e Pikachu caíram em um buraco, que havia sido feito pelo Sandile de óculos de sol que eles já haviam conhecido algum tempo atrás. Sandile percorreu um longo caminho para desafiar Pikachu para uma Batalha! Mas, de repente, um Ducklett travesso chega ao campo de batalha,  na verdade, três Ducklett estão juntos. Um a um, eles pegam a tampa da bandeja de Cilan, depois os óculos de sol de Sandile e, finalmente, o boné de Ash! A recuperação desses itens prova ser uma tarefa formidável, já que os três Ducklett parecem determinados a fazer travessuras e em não serem nada simpáticos. Mas quando Sandile se vira contra eles e ajuda Pikachu, Pikachu aprende um novo movimento, o Esfera Elétrica! Esse movimento manda os três Ducklett pelos ares, e nossos heróis conseguem recuperar os itens roubados. De volta ao motivo da visita, Sandile e Pikachu finalmente batalham. Apesar de terminar em empate, Sandile evolui para Krokorok! Krokorok então despede-se afetuosamente de nossos heróis, e enquanto eles continuam a jornada para a Cidade de Castelia, Ash está feliz porque o confronto que teve com os três Ducklett tenha acabado com Pikachu aprendendo um novo e poderoso movimento, o Esfera Elétrica!

Finnish Official Summary

Treenattuaan hieman sankarimme nauttivat lounasta ennen kuin jatkavat matkaansa Castelia Cityyn. Yhtäkkiä Ash ja Pikachu tippuvat maahan aukeavaan koloon ja katoavat! Mitä Iris ja Cilan eivät tiedä on se, että kolon kaivoi aurinkolaseja käyttävä Sandile, jonka he tapasivat jonkin aikaa sitten. Sandile on tullut pitkän matkan päästä haastamaan Pikachun otteluun! Mutta kesken ottelun ilkikurinen Ducklett vaappuu paikalle – yksi kolmesta. Ne vievät yksi kerrallaan Cilanin tarjotinkuvun, Sandilen aurinkolasit ja lopulta Ashin hatun! Tavaroiden takaisin saaminen osoittautuu hankalaksi, sillä tämä Ducklett-kolmikko tykkää tehdä kiusaa. Mutta kun Sandile vastustaa niitä ja Pikachu auttaa, Pikachu oppii yllättäen uuden liikkeen – Electro Ballin! Sen avulla Ducklett-kolmikko saa kyytiä ja sankarimme saavat varastetut tavaransa takaisin. Sandile voi siis taas keskittyä siihen, minkä vuoksi tulikin, joten se ja Pikachu jatkavat otteluaan. Vaikka lopputulos onkin tasapeli, Sandile kehittyy Krokorokiksi! Krokorok hyvästelee sankarimme ja he jatkavat matkaansa Castelia Cityyn. Ash puolestaan on iloinen, että kohtaaminen kolmen Ducklettin kanssa opetti Pikachulle aivan uuden, voimakkaan liikkeen – Electro Ballin!

Russian Official Summary

Наши герои решили устроить привал и подкрепиться. Но неожиданно Эш и Пикачу проваливаются в яму! Оказывается, что эта яма была прорыта Сэндайлом в темных очках, которого наши герои встречали ранее. Он все это время следовал за героями, чтобы бросить вызов Пикачу. Но внезапно появляется Даклетт. Даже не один, а целых три! Три пакостника Даклетта! Один за другим они крадут сначала крышку от блюда Сайлана, потом очки Сэндайла, а затем и кепку Эша! Вернуть похищенные вещи очень непросто, ведь Даклеты не собираются сдаваться.

Dutch Official Summary

Onze helden trainen een beetje en lunchen onderweg naar Castelia City en worden plotseling opgeschrikt als Ash en Pikachu in een enorme kuil vallen en verdwijnen. Wat Iris en Cilan niet weten is dat Ash en Pikachu in een gat zijn gevallen dat is gemaakt door de zonnebril dragende Sandile, die ze een tijdje terug hebben ontmoet. Sandile heeft een lange reis gemaakt om Pikachu uit te dagen voor een Gevecht. Maar plotseling verschijnen een paar ondeugende Ducklett ten tonele. Eigenlijk zijn het drie Ducklett die met elkaar optrekken. Een voor een pakken ze de warmhouddeksel van Cilan, de zonnebril van Sandile en tenslotte de pet van Ash! Het terughalen van deze voorwerpen blijkt een enorme opgave te zijn, aangezien de drie Ducklett dol zijn op kattenkwaad en niet zo vriendelijk zijn. Maar als Sandile tegen ze in actie komt en Pikachu hem helpt, leert Pikachu plotseling een nieuwe zet: Elektrobal! Die zet schiet de drie Ducklett de lucht in en onze helden kunnen dan hun gestolen voorwerpen terugpakken. Dan komen we toe aan het oorspronkelijke doel van Sandile om tegen Pikachu te vechten. Hoewel het Gevecht onbeslist eindigt, evolueert Sandile in Krokorok. Krokorok neemt afscheid van onze helden en zij vervolgen hun reis naar Castelia City. Ash is blij dat de confrontatie die ze met de drie Ducklett hadden, heeft opgeleverd dat Pikachu een gloednieuwe, sterke zet heeft geleerd: Elektrobal!

Norwegian Official Summary

Mens de trener litt og spiser lunsj på veien til Castelia City, blir våre helter plutselig sjokkerte når Ash og Pikachu forsvinner ned i et stort hull! Det Iris og Cilan ikke vet er at Ash og Pikachu har falt ned i et hull som ble laget av en Sandile med solbriller som de møtte for en stund siden. Sandile har kommet langt for å utfordre Pikachu til kamp! Men plutselig kommer en rampete Ducklett inn i kampen – faktisk tre Ducklett som er sammen. En etter en tar de Cilans serveringsutstyr, og Sandile sine solbriller, og til slutt Ash sin hatt! Det viser seg å være litt av en jobb å få disse tingene tilbake, og de tre Ducklett virker som om de er klare for flere pek, og ikke for å være snille. Men når Sandile står opp mot dem og Pikachu hjelper til, lærer plutselig Pikachu et nytt trekk – Electro Ball! Det trekket sender de tre Ducklett på flytur, og våre helter klarer å få tilbake sine stjålne ting. Tilbake til den originale grunnen til Sandile sitt besøk; Sandile og Pikachu har sin kamp. Selv om det til slutt ender med uavgjort, utvikler Sandile seg til Krokorok! Krokorok sier så farvel til våre helter, og i det de fortsetter på veien til Castelia City, er Ash glad for at konfrontasjonen de hadde med de tre Ducklett endte med at Pikachu lærte et nytt, kraftig trekk – Electro Ball!

Swedish Official Summary

Medan de stannar oh äter lunch och tränar lite på sin väg till Castelia City, blir våra vänner chockade då Ash och Pikachu försvinner ner i ett stort hål. Utan att Iris och Cilan vet om det har Ash och Pikachu försvunnit ner i ett hål som den solglasögonprydde Sandile de träffade för en tid sedan, grävt. Sandile har kommit en lång väg för att utmana Pikachu till strid! Plötsligt kommer en oberäknelig Ducklett in på stridsfältet och faktum är att tre Ducklett hänger tillsammans. En efter en tar de Cilans serveringskupa, sen Sandiles glasögon och slutligen Ashs keps! Att återfå dessa saker visar sig vara en svår uppgift eftersom de tre Ducklett verkar inställd på att retas och inte att vara snälla. Men när Sandile utmanar dem och Pikachu assisterar, lär sig Pikachu plötsligt en ny move – Electro Ball! Denna move skickar de tre Ducklett flygande och våra hjältar kan nu återbörda sina stulna ägodelar. Tillbaka i det ursprungliga syftet med Sandiles besök, har Sandile och Pikachu sin strid. Även om den slutar oavgjort så utvecklas Sandile till en Krokorok! Krokorok bjuder sedan våra hjältar ett varmt farväl, alltjämt de fortsätter sin resa mot Castelia City. Ash är glad att konfrontationen de hade med de tre Ducklett ledde till att Pikachu lärde sig en helt ny och kraftfull move  Electro Ball!

Danish Official Summary

Vores helte træner lidt og spiser en bid frokost på vejen mod Castelia City, men får et chok, da Ash og Pikachu pludselig falder i et stort hul og forsvinder! Hvad Iris og Cilan ikke ved er, at Ash og Pikachu er faldet i et hul, som er dannet af den Sandile med solbrillerne, de mødte for et stykke tid siden. Sandile er kommet langvejs fra for at udfordre Pikachu til kamp! Men pludselig træder en ondskabsfuld Ducklett ind på kamppladsen – eller faktisk 3 Ducklett, som hænger ud sammen. De snupper simpelthen først Cilans serveringslåg, så Sandiles solbriller og til sidst Ash’ hat! At få disse ting tilbage viser sig at være ret vanskeligt, idet de tre Ducklett åbenbart er fast besluttet på at være ondskabsfulde fremfor rare. Men da Sandile sætter sig op imod dem med hjælp fra Pikachu, lærer Pikachu pludselig et nyt træk – Electro Ball! Det træk sender de tre Ducklett på flugt, og vores helte kan omsider få deres stjålne ting tilbage. Nu kan Sandile og Pikachu vende tilbage til den kamp, der var det egentlige formål med Sandiles besøg. Selvom det ender uafgjort, udvikler Sandile sig til Krokorok! Derefter tager Krokorok hjerteligt afsked med vores helte, som fortsætter rejsen mod Castelia City. Ash glæder sig over, at konfrontationen med de tre Ducklett endte med, at Pikachu lærte et kraftfuldt nyt træk – Electro Ball!

YouTube

On April 1st, 2021, the official Japanese Twitter account announced that this episode was available to watch on the official Japanese YouTube channel. The video was region locked to Japan only. A special artwork showcasing the episode was created to promote its release on YouTube.

It was part of the Anipoke Selection (アニポケセレクション), a limited-time promotion to release select episodes from the older anime series on the official Japanese YouTube channel! A playlist was available to watch these episodes.
03:00

Culture Reference

The title of the English dub "Dancing with the Ducklett Trio!" is based of the ABC American dancing show "Dancing with the Stars".
03:33

Script Error

The English dub added an extra line in for Ash just after he falls out of the hole. Satoshi in the Japanese original just moans.

Ash: Man that hurts...
04:43

Script Error

Dent in the Japanese original asks his Yanappu to take the place of Iris' Doryuzu while Cilan in the English dub just asks his Pansage to help out.

Cilan: Pansage, how about you helping out?
Dent: Yanappu, try your best for Doryuzu as well!
(デント): ヤナップ ドリュウズの分も頑張るんだ!

09:35

Script Error

Satoshi is glad that he was saved by Meguroco in the Japanese original while Ash comments that the ice was cold instead.

Ash: Man, that's cold.
Satoshi: I'm saved.
(サトシ): 助かったぁ

16:23

Culture Reference

When the 3 Ducklett blast off, its a homage to both Team Rocket and how they blast off like that all the time and The Three Stooges "Hello, Hello, Hello!" skit line and introduction jingle.
16:53

Script Error

Dent in the Japanese original is glad that everyone got their stuff back while Cilan in the English dub is just glad to get back his 'serving dome'.

Cilan: Oh joy, my lovely serving dome, safe and sound!
Dent: Anyway, I'm really glad we've got everything back.
(デント): とにかく取り戻せて ほんとによかったよ。

18:26

Script Error

Dent actually explains the battle strategy a bit more in depth than Cilan does in the English dub by noting Pikachu's Quick Attack.

Cilan: Well, it looks like Ash's strategy is to avoid using Electric-type moves completely!
Dent: So the strategy is to avoid Electric moves and to deal firm damage with Quick Attack.
(デント): 電気技を避け 電光石火で手堅くダメージを与える作戦だね。

20:43

Script Error

The Japanese narrator says nothing about meeting up with Krokorok again even though it seems likely but the English dub narrator specifically points that out. The Japanese narrator said they just gained confidence instead.

Narrator: Though our heroes plan on seeing Krokorok again one day, for now, their journey to Castelia City continues!
Japanese Narrator: Having gained a lot more confidence, Satoshi and his friends continue their journey for the battle at the Hiun Gym.
(ナレーター): ヒウンジムでのバトルに向け大きな自信を得たサトシたちの旅はまだまだ続く

This was a great episode. I loved all the new BGM music they added. The Koaruhie could have been annoying in this episode but they were actually quite funny and didn't go over the top. When the Koaruhie blasted of like Rocket Gang normally does, that was truly funny and something that had been missed for 20ish episodes so its impact was quite good.

This episode is still one of my favorite episodes mainly because the Japanese voice acting for Koaruhie made me laugh. The English dub voice acting for them wasn't quite as convincing unfortunately. There wasn't too many differences between two version in this one as it was basically a straightforward episode.

This episode was pretty funny. The laughs of the Koaruhie were pretty funny, but I thought Meguroco evolving was the funniest part. With all the sparkles and it wearing the sunglasses and whatnot, it seemed like Warubiru was a movie star or something, especially with its arm crossed. That image was really memorable. I'm definitely looking to seeing it again in later episodes.
I wonder what Asn and company did with the rest of the stuff the Koaruhie had. I thought that they were using Scald at first since it looked like hot water they were spraying. Also, when I saw Pikachu trapped in the umbrella and using Thunderbolt, I thought that it was going to lose its ability to use Electric attacks like the second episode. It was nice to see Pikachu learn a new move.
