Summary

English Official Summary

The kids have stopped at a lakeside camp site on their way to Fortree City. Ash trips and drops his badge case into the lake, where it is eaten up by a giant Whiscash. Ash dives in after the Pokémon but gets caught in some reeds instead. Ash is pulled out of the water by a fisherman named Sullivan, who calls himself "Legend." He tells them that he has been trying to catch the giant Whiscash for years and its name is Nero. The kids decide to help "Legend" catch Nero. "Legend" shows them how to fish, but all of them are unsuccessful. On the other side of the lake Team Rocket is also fishing, but not having much luck. Eventually Ash snags Nero and manages to pull the giant Whiscash out of the water. Before he can get his badges back, Team Rocket scoops Nero up in a net and flies away in their balloon. Ash's Grovyle uses Bullet Seed to send the balloon crashing down, and a battle begins. Whiscash uses Earthquake on Team Rocket, and then Pikachu sends them blasting off with Thunder. "Legend" tries to catch Nero using his own Pokémon, but eventually he just pulls out a Master Ball and throws it—which Nero gobbles up, and then swims away.

Special First-Airing Segment Senryu Contest

Everyone's Pokémon Senryū Mass Recruitment (みんなのポケモン川柳大募集) contest was introduced during the original airing of this episode. Contestants were asked to select from 1 of 4 different Pokémon: Raikou (ライコウ), Ledyba (レディバ), Mokoko (モココ) or Magmag (マグマッグ) and write a Senryū based on them.

The Application Rules (応募のお約束) stated that the Senryū must contain the name of the chosen Pokémon (お題のポケモンの名前が必ず入っていること) and the syllable meter must be in the 5-7-5 (5・7・5の七五調になっていること) style.

The winning senryū's were featured in the Okido segment during the following Advanced Generation episodes:
The Raikou (ライコウ) Senryū was used in: AG82
The Ledyba (レディバ) Senryū was used in: AG83
The Mokoko (モココ) Senryū was used in: AG89
The Magmag (マグマッグ) Senryū was used in: AG90

A Pokémon teacup with the writer's senryu on it was given as a present! (採用者にはあなたの川柳入り「ポケモン湯のみ」をプレゼント!)

The rental DVD that included this episode did not have an Okido segment.
