Summary

English Official Summary

Late one night, Ash and his pals are awakened by a UFO! The next day they stop at a café to discuss the sighting. Some townspeople there tell a story of a friend who had a vision of outer space. The townspeople had visited Professor Icarus, who lives over the mountain, to ask him about the event. Very little is known about this professor (a UFO specialist), but when the townspeople confronted him in the past, they all experienced severe head pain. Cilan is a huge fan of the professor and his work, so he decides they need to go to the professor’s laboratory themselves to get to the bottom of the mystery. While crossing a bridge on the way, everyone in the group has another vision—a premonition of danger. When our heroes arrive at the professor’s house and Cilan explains what a big fan he is, the professor warms up to them and invites them in. The professor describes his theory of dark matter and explains that the UFO they saw is a flying saucer he built when everyone suddenly has a vision of the saucer exploding! Rushing to the lab, they meet the mysterious Pokémon called Elgyem, who shares the professor’s house. They also learn how the two met. It turns out Elgyem is responsible for the visions everyone saw. When a disguised Team Rocket appears and tries to capture Elgyem, a fierce battle ensues! Our heroes emerge victorious, but not before Team Rocket destroys the professor’s saucer. The professor vows to rebuild the saucer and take Elgyem back into outer space. But it appears Elgyem is happy living there with Professor Icarus!

French Official Summary

En route pour Méanville, au milieu de la nuit, nos héros sont réveillés par un Ovni. Le jour suivant, alors qu’ils discutent de l’événement dans un café, les gens de la ville leur racontent l’histoire d’un ami à eux qui a eu une soudaine « vision » de l’espace. Les habitant alarmés sont alors allés trouver le Professeur Icarus (qui vit dans la montagne) pour lui poser des questions à ce sujet. On sait très peu de choses de ce scientifique spécialiste des Ovni, et lorsque les gens de la ville viennent lui poser des questions au sujet de la vision de leur ami, ils sont soudain victimes de terribles maux de tête. Rachid, qui admire beaucoup le professeur et ses travaux, pense que lui-même et ses deux amis doivent aller trouver le professeur dans son laboratoire pour élucider le mystère. En traversant un pont pour s’y rendre, ils ont une vision prémonitoire. Pendant ce temps, la Team Rocket espionne le Pokémon Lewsor, qui vit avec le professeur, et jure de l’attraper. Nos héros arrivent enfin à destination. Rachid exprime au professeur Icarus son admiration pour ses travaux. Celui-ci se radoucit alors et explique à nos héros sa théorie de la « matière noire » puis il leur confie que l’ovni qu’ils ont apercus n’était autre qu’une soucoupe volante de sa construction. Nos héros et le professeur ont alors une vision de la soucoupe en train d’exploser ! En se précipitant dans le laboratoire, ils rencontrent un Lewsor et apprennent qu’il partage la vie du professeur, ainsi que l’histoire de leur rencontre. Ils en déduisent que Lewsor est responsable des fameuses « visions ». Entretemps, la Team Rocket déguisée fait son entrée et tente de capturer Lewsor. Une terrible bataille s’ensuit, dont nos héros sortent victorieux, mais la Team Rocket aura eu le temps de détruire la soucoupe du professeur. Ce dernier n’est guère affecté et promet de reconstruire l’engin pour ramener Lewsor dans l’espace, sa patrie d’origine. Cependant, il s’avère que Lewsor est heureux avec le professeur et souhaite que les choses en demeurent là. Finalement, nos héros disent adieu au professeur et à Lewsor.

German Official Summary

Unsere Helden, die nach wie vor auf ihrem Weg nach Rayono City sind, werden mitten in der Nacht von einem Ufo geweckt. Am nächsten Tag machen sie Halt in einem Café und besprechen das Erlebnis der letzten Nacht, woraufhin ihnen einige Einheimische die Geschichte von einem ihrer Freunde erzählen, der auch eine Weltraumvision hatte und wie sie den Professor Ikarus aufsuchten (der jenseits des großen Berges lebt), um ihn danach zu fragen. Über diesen Wissenschaftler und Ufo-Spezialisten ist sehr wenig bekannt. Als sie ihn mit dem Erlebnis ihres Freundes konfrontieren, bekommen sie plötzlich furchtbare Kopfschmerzen. Benny, der ein großer Fan vom Professor und dessen Arbeit ist, beschließt sofort, dass sie den Professor selbst aufsuchen müssen, um diesem mysteriösen Rätsel auf den Grund zu gehen. Beim Überqueren einer Brücke haben unsere Helden eine Vision, die sie vor einer unmittelbaren Gefahr warnt. Währenddessen beobachtet Team Rocket heimlich das Pokémon Pygraulon, das bei dem Professor lebt, um es bei nächster Gelegenheit zu stehlen. Als unsere Helden bei dem Professor ankommen und Benny diesem erzählt, dass er ein großer Fan von ihm sei, wird jener sehr viel zugänglicher (freundlicher) und bittet sie in sein Haus. Er erklärt ihnen nicht nur seine Theorie zur Dunklen Materie, sondern auch, dass das Ufo, das sie gesehen haben, eine von ihm selbstgebaute Fliegende Untertasse sei, die plötzlich in einer Vision explodiere! Sofort laufen sie in das Labor des Professors, wo sie auf Pygraulon treffen. Sie erfahren, dass der Professor und Pygraulon zusammen in diesem Haus leben und die Geschichte, wie sie sich beide kennengelernt haben. Es stellt sich heraus, dass Pygraulon verantwortlich ist für die Visionen, die alle gesehen haben. Plötzlich taucht das verkleidete Team Rocket auf und versucht, Pygraulon zu fangen. Es beginnt ein stürmischer Kampf, den unsere Helden gewinnen, aber nicht bevor Team Rocket die Fliegende Untertasse des Professors zerstört hat. Der Professor macht sich darüber aber keine Sorgen und verspricht, die Untertasse wiederherzustellen, um Pygraulon damit zurück in den Weltraum zu bringen, auch wenn dieses sich hier sehr wohlzufühlen scheint. Schließlich verabschieden sich unsere Helden sehr herzlich von Professor Ikarus und Pygraulon und setzen ihre Reise nach Rayono City fort.

Si sa molto poco di questo scienziato, uno Specialista di UFO, ma recatisi da lui, gli abitanti del paese vengono afflitti da un tremendo dolore alla testa. Spighetto, che è un estimatore del Professore e del suo lavoro, decide che devono recarsi loro stessi presso la casa-laboratorio dell’uomo per risolvere il mistero. Si incamminano e, mentre attraversano un ponte, hanno una visione premonitrice di pericolo. Nel frattempo il Team Rocket sta segretamente sorvegliando il Pokémon Elgyem, che vive insieme al Professore, determinati ad acchiapparlo. I nostri eroi giungono alla casa del Professore e, quando Spighetto dice di essere un Ammiratore di Icaro, egli li invita a entrare.

Finnish Official Summary

Pysähdyttyään matkallaan Nimbasa Cityyn nukkumaan, sankarimme heräävät ohitse lentävään Ufoon. Seuraavana päivänä he pysähtyvät kahvilaan keskustelemaan edellisen yön tapahtumista ja kuulevat samalla paikallisten kertovan tarinaa ystävästään, joka oli nähnyt ilmestyksen ulkoavaruudesta ja kuinka he olivat menneet Professori Icaruksen luo (hän asuu vuorella) kysymään häneltä asiasta. Kyseisestä tiedemiehestä (Ufo-asiantuntija) tiedetään hyvin vähän, mutta paikallisten kohdatessa hänet, he kaikki kärsivät vakavasta päänsärystä. Cilan on professorin suuri ihailija ja päättää että sankareidemme on mentävä professorin kotilaboratorioon selvittämään mysteeriä. Ylittäessään siltaa he saavat ilmestyksen tulevasta vaarasta. Sillä väli rakettiryhmä on tarkkaillut salaa professorin kanssa asuvaa Elgyem-pokémonia aikoen siepata sen itselleen. Sankarimme saapuvat professorin talolle. Cilanin selityttä olevansa professorin suuri ihailija, Icarus heltyy ja pyytää heidät kotiinsa. Selitettyään heille teoriansa pimeästä aineesta ja kerrottuaan että heidän näkemänsä UFO oli hänen rakentamansa lentävä lautanen, sankarimme saavat ilmestyksen räjähtävästä lentävästä lautasesta! Syöksyessään kohti laboratoriota, he kohtaavat Elgyemin, ja saavat tietää että Elgyem ja professori asuvat yhdessä. Sankarimme saavat myös tietää, kuinka Icarus ja Elgyem tapasivat. Käy ilmi, että Elgyem on vastuussa kaikkien näkemistä ilmestyksistä. Samassa naamioitunut rakettiryhmä ilmestyy paikalle ja yrittää siepata Elgyemin. Alkaa hurja ottelu, josta sankarimme selviävät voittajina, tosin eivät ennen kuin rakettiryhmä tuhoaa professorin lentävän lautasen. Professori ei asiasta huolestu ja vannoo rakentavansa uuden lentävän lautasen ja vievänsä Elgyemin takaisin ulkoavaruuteen. Näyttää kuitenkin siltä, että Elgyem viihtyy olinpaikassaan. Lopulta sankarimme jättävät jäähyväiset professorille ja Elgyemille ja suuntaavat taas kohti Nimbasa Cityä.

Russian Official Summary

Одной ночью наших героев будет звук пролетающего НЛО. На следующий день они обсуждают увиденное в кафе. И тут местные рассказывают им о профессоре Икарусе, специалисте по Нло, который живет за горой. Это очень загадочный человек, и о нем известно очень мало. Более того, при приближении к нему люди испытывают сильнейшие головные боли. Сайлан, который, как оказывается, является большим поклонником трудов доктора, решает отправиться к нему и разгадать эту тайну. Тем временем, Команда Р следит за покемоном Элгиемом, который принадлежит профессору. Они очень хотят его поймать. Когда наши герои приходят к профессору, он встречает их прохладно. Но, когда Сайлан рассказывает ему о том, какой он его поклонник, он смягчается и даже приглашает их к себе. Профессор рассказывает им о своей теории темной материи, а НЛО, которое они видели, принадлежит ему. Дальше они знакомятся с Элгиемом, который живет с профессором. Икарус рассказывает им историю их встречи. Оказывается в головных болях жителей виноват Элгием. Тут появляется Команда Р и пытается его похитить. Начинается битва. Наши герои выигрывают, но злодеям удается уничтожить летающую тарелку профессора. Профессор, впрочем, не унывает и решает построить НЛО заново, чтобы отправить Элгиема обратно в космос. Но тот дает понять, что хочет остаться здесь. Наши герои прощаются с ними и отправляются дальше, в Нимбаса-Сити.

Norwegian Official Summary

Våre helter er på vei til Nimbasa City, og midt på natten når de sover, blir de vekket av en flyvende UFO. Neste dag, mens de er innom en café for å snakke om det som skjedde natten før, forteller noen som bor i byen en historie om en venn som har fått en åpenbaring av verdensrommet, og om at de hadde dratt for å møte Professor Icarus (som på den andre siden av fjellet) for å spørre ham om det. Man vet veldig lite om denne vitenskapsmannen (en UFO-spesialist), men når de konfronterer ham, får de besøkende fra byen fryktelig hodepine. Cilan, som er en stor fan av professoren og hans arbeide, kommer fram til at de må dra til professorens hjemmelaboratorie selv for å finne ut av mysteriet. I det de krysser en bro på veien, får de en åpenbaring - en advarsel om at fare er på ferde. Samtidig har Team Rocket i all hemmelighet studert Pokémon Elgyem, som bor med professoren, og de planlegger å fange den. Våre helter ankommer professorens hus, og når Cilan forklarer at han er en stor fant av Icarus, tør professoren opp og inviterer dem inn. Han forklarer sin teori om mørk materie, og at UFO-en de så er en flyvende tallerken som han selv har konstruert. Og plutselig blir de plutselig konfrontert med åpenbaring av at den flyvende tallerkenen ekspoloderer! De skynder seg til laboratoriet, der de møter Elgyem og får vite at Elgyem og professoren deler huset sammen. De får også høre hvordan de to møttes. Det viser seg at Elgyem er ansvarlig for åpenbaringene alle har sett. Plutselig dukker et forkledd Team Rocket opp og prøver å fange Elgyem. En voldsom kamp følger, og våre helter kommer seirende ut, men det er først etter at Team Rocket ødelegger professorens flyvende tallerken. Professoren blir ikke bekymret av den grunn, og lover å bygge opp tallerkenen igjen og ta Elgyem tilbake til verdensrommet, men det virker som Elgyem er lykkelig der den er. Til slutt tar våre helter farvel med professoren og Elgyem og setter igjen kursen mot Nimbasa City.

A nice episode. There wasn't anything really special about that one, though. Ligray was quite cute (didn't have that impression in-game), and sort of reminded me of a 'cutie version' of Deoxys.
I found Dent was quite funny in this episode... I never expected him to be a 'Science Sommelier' fond of UFOs! Thinking back to previous episodes (especially the one in the museaum), I found he was a bit 'contradictory' (I wouldn't say UFOs are really scientific in any way, at least for now ;)).

Anyway, about the next episode : I am so NOT looking forward to it. In my opinion, Shootie is THE worst rival in the whole series' history. I've rarely seen a character with such an over-sized ego. I hope the writers did a good job with him !

I wouldn't say he is the worst rival we've seen so far... If anyone should be called the worst rival ever, that would have to be Shinji, in my opinion (even though the closure he got in the last episodes of the Sinnoh league made him look a lot nicer). We've seen him mistreat his Pokémon just to make them stronger (especially Hikozaru), catch Pokémon and then release them because he didn't deem them strong enough to be a part of his team (like the multiple Mukkuru he caught when Satoshi first met him, which he released shortly afterwards) and not care about his Pokémon's feelings in general... So far, Shootie hasn't done anything that would make him look as bad as Shinji was shown to be in the first few episodes of DP... well, except for being a bit selfish and looking down on Satoshi because he's from Kanto.

This episode reminded me of DP149 with the same type of story. A scientist that doesn't like outside people much and tries to stay secluded and then creates an amazing device. Other than that, I liked the episode. I thought Ligray was a likeable Pokemon and I found it funny that Satoshi instantly thought it was an Alien. The episode definitely had its moments.

That's very true. Shinji was a real jerk, but at least, there was some interesting writing done with him (like the Hikozaru you mentionned).
But so far, I haven't seen anything really interesting about Shootie so far, except his over-sized ego. He's not just 'selfish and looking down on Satoshi', in my opinion (though I couldn't exactly pin down what I disliked so much in him). What's more, we're quite used to rivals looking down on Satoshi, which is another reason I don't like him. So far, there hasn't been anything original about his character.

Then again, I agree I'm not being fair with Shootie, comparing him to Shinji, who had so many more episodes than Shootie.

That's funny, because I didin't even think about that episode. Maybe because I had the ones with Deoxys in mind.

Well, if you only take into account the first few episodes of DP and BW, Shootie has appeared in roughly the same number of episodes as Shinji had up to DP40, and also got roughly the same amount of focus (as BW23, 24 and 26 haven't aired yet, we might be missing some of Shootie's appeareances). Even though I agree that Shootie hasn't done anything interesting enough so far that could greatly distinguish himself from Satoshi's other rivals, if you look back into Shinji's first appearances, he didn't have anything interesting going for himself either. Except for being a jerk to his Pokémon, his character only started unfolding after DP40 (at least the way I see it), so I guess we should just be more patient when it comes to Shootie. I think the writers will find something to make him more interesting in the episodes to come. :) Besides, it's not like they haven't tried to differentiate him a bit from the other rivals. We have seen that he also has a soft side, apart from his normal, selfish one, (he used his Hatoboh to protect Satoshi's Mamepato from the Fushide's attack and then lead them to the Central Area of Hiun City in BW22, and also helped Satoshi identify the reason why Mijumaru's Aqua Jet keeps failing in BW34) which, as far as I remember, none of the other rivals had shown so early into the series.
