Summary

English Official Summary

Ash and friends are headed to Fallarbor Town when they are nearly hit by a Bagon jumping off a cliff. Ash sends out Taillow to attack the Bagon, but a girl named Michelle leaps out to accuse them of launching a sneak attack. After learning Bagon was at fault, Michelle apologizes and explains that her Bagon is trying to learn how to fly. Ash challenges Michelle to a battle so Bagon can get more experience so it will evolve into Shelgon and then Salamence (which can fly). With Michelle using her special computerized glasses to guide Bagon, Pikachu takes a real beating from Bagon's Skull Bash attack. The battle is interrupted by the arrival of Team Rocket in a helicopter. Meowth swoops down wearing a jetpack and grabs Bagon. Treecko hits the helicopter with Bullet Seed, causing Team Rocket to drop the remote control for the jetpack. Ash and the others run to find Bagon. Ash tells Michelle that she needs to encourage Bagon more so it can evolve. Team Rocket meets up with Meowth and Bagon, discovering that Bagon is thrilled because it got to fly (using the jetpack). Ash and the others catch up, and Pikachu hits Team Rocket hard with Quick Attack. But Team Rocket captures Pikachu, flying off in their helicopter. Bagon and Treecko use the jetpack to follow Team Rocket and attack the helicopter, freeing Pikachu. Pikachu zaps the helicopter, sending Team Rocket blasting off again. Bagon, Treecko, and Pikachu ride through the sky on the jetpack, and when they land, Bagon evolves into Shelgon!

French Official Summary

Tandis que Sacha et ses amis parcourent un sentier de montagne en direction de la ville où doit se tenir le prochain Concours Pokémon, une forme gigantesque fond soudain sur eux. Ils réalisent bientôt qu'il s'agit d'un Draby, un Pokémon dont la tête est aussi dure que l'acier. Inutile de dire que personne n'aurait envie de voir un pareil Pokémon lui tomber dessus ! Cependant, avant que Sacha n'ait eu le temps de se lancer dans un combat contre le Pokémon, son Dresseur se présente et explique que son Draby a sauté du haut de la falaise parce qu'il rêve de voler, même si ce ne sera possible que quand il aura évolué deux fois. Toujours pleins de compréhension pour ceux qui poursuivent un rêve impossible, Sacha et ses amis promettent de faire tout ce qu'ils peuvent pour l'aider.

German Official Summary

Unsere Freunde sind in den Bergen auf dem Weg zum nächsten Pokémon-Wettbewerb, als eine Gestalt auf sie herunterstürzt, der sie im letzten Moment noch aus dem Weg gehen können. Es ist ein Kindwurm, ein Pokémon, dessen Kopf so hart wie Stahl ist. Bevor Ash es jedoch zu einem Kampf herausfordern kann, taucht seine Trainerin auf und erklärt ihnen, dass ihr Kindwurm sich deshalb von den Felsen herunterstürzt, weil es davon träumt, fliegen zu können. Aber dazu muss es sich zweimal weiterentwickeln! Doch Kindwurm hängt so sehr an seinem Traum, dass unsere Freunde versprechen, alles zu tun, um ihm zu helfen.

Ash sta per affrontare il Pokémon ma ecco arrivare la sua Allenatrice. Quest’ultima spiega che Bagon sta continuando a gettarsi da una scogliera nella speranza di imparare a volare – abilità che non può acquisire prima della sua seconda evoluzione! Inguaribili sognatori, i nostri eroi promettono di aiutarlo a realizzare il suo sogno.
