Summary
Ash and co. are sailing for their next adventure. Ash asks if Lapras is okay, and Lapras smiles at him. Tracey sees something in the water. Lapras picks it up, and hands it to Ash. Inside the bottle is a note. The letter reads, "If you know anything about the Crystal Onix, let me know right away." The letter is signed by a girl named Marissa from Sunburst Island. The group all wants to see the Crystal Onix. Sunburst Island is right ahead, and so Lapras takes everyone there.

The first thing Ash and co. sees are the shops with many glass sculptures. They walk around to look at the shiny glass. Pikachu walks up to a sculpture. Ash tells Pikachu to not break it. Then they see a man yelling at a little girl for keeping the shop open. Then the man walks away. The little girl tells Ash and co. that her brother, Mateo, runs the shop. The girl introduces herself as Marissa. She's the one who wrote the letter. Unfortunately for Marissa, Ash doesn't know anything about the Crystal Onix. They all decide to talk with Marissa's brother. Mateo asks Ash and co. if Marissa has been bothering them. Ash and Misty says no, and they wonder why his store doesn't have any merchandise. Mateo tells them his story.

His grandfather used to run the store, and many people would stop by for a look. Mateo's grandfather was very talented, and made glass sculptures everyday. When the grandfather died, Mateo tried his best to make good sculptures, but they never turned out right. Mateo throws breaks a sculpture with his anger. Ash wonders of what is so bad about his sculptures. Mateo tells him that his sculptures look like statues, but his grandfather's sculptures looks like they would come alive at any moment. What Mateo needs is some inspiration. Mateo's grandfather has seen the Crystal Onix, and that inspired him.

When his story ends, Mateo shows them a sculpture of the Crystal Onix that his grandfather made. Ash and co. decides to stay and help Mateo and Marissa find the Crystal Onix. Meanwhile, Team Rocket is at a glass shop. James finds a blade, and Jessie finds glasses. Meowth yells at them causing the glass to break. The shop owner tells Team Rocket that they have to pay for it. Because Team Rocket doesn't have any money, they have to work. Jessie and James are busy chopping up wood. The shop owner and another man comes out discussing the Crystal Onix. Team Rocket overhears their conversation. They decide to capture the Crystal Onix.

Tracey sends out Venonat to track down the Crystal Onix. Mateo shows Venonat a picture of it, and Venonat starts to search. Venonat comes across a bunch of rocks that looks almost exactly the same as the Crystal Onix. Venonat is returned back, and Tracey sends out Marill. Tracey plays his tape recorder, and a sound of Onix is played. Marill starts to look around, and it senses something.

Marill points at a small island across the lake. Joining the two islands is a sandbar. When the tide gets really low, you can just walk onto the island. Before they get to the island, everyone falls into a hole. Team Rocket laughs as they say their motto. Marissa starts to cry, but Ash promises her that they will beat Team Rocket to the Crystal Onix. They dig their way out of the hole, and they run across the sandbar to the next island.

They see Team Rocket caught in the traps that they made. Marill hears the Crystal Onix inside the cave. Inside the cave is a bunch of sparkling crystal. Marill jumps down in the water. Its tail is floating so you can see where it's going. Marill tells them that the Crystal Onix is in the water. Tracey sees the shadow of the Crystal Onix. The Crystal Onix emerges out of the water. Its whole body is made out of crystal. Tracey starts a sketch that will be sent to Professor Oak. Mateo came prepared with a few Pokémon. He sends out Cloyster first, which uses Water Gun. However, the water has no effect on the Crystal Onix. Cloyster uses a rapid Water Gun, but the attacks doesn't do anything at the Crystal Onix. Then the Crystal Onix tackles Cloyster causing it to faint.

Team Rocket comes running in the cave. Misty wonders how Team Rocket escaped, but that's a secret that only Team Rocket knows. Team Rocket dreams about having a necklace, tub, and charm. Jessie sends out Arbok, and James sends out Victreebel. Misty sends out Staryu which tackles Arbok and Victreebel. Then Pikachu zaps Team Rocket. Team Rocket starts to run, but they run into the Crystal Onix. The Crystal Onix slams Team Rocket out of the cave with its tail. Mateo sends out Charmeleon next to battle. The Crystal Onix uses Rock Throw, but Charmeleon dodges the rocks. Charmeleon uses Flamethrower which makes the Crystal Onix burn up. An Ember attack from Charmeleon hits the Crystal Onix. Mateo sees himself in the Crystal Onix as they face each other. Then the Crystal Onix crashes back into the water. Mateo doesn't want to capture the Onix. He tells them that he had a strange feeling when staring at the Crystal Onix. Now Mateo has the inspiration he needs to make better sculptures.

Back at the shop, Mateo begins to work with Charmeleon again. Marissa can't wait to see what he will make next. Ash and co. are leaving the island. They say their goodbyes at each other. In Ash's hand is a small Pikachu sculpture. The sculpture looks like it's alive. Everyone is happy that Mateo has the inspiration he needs to have a successful shop.

Written Biographies for Characters in Episode:
Marissa - {{Char=Marissa}} lives on Sunburst Island with her big brother {{Char=Mateo}}. She helps him run a glass and crystal shop. Realizing that her brother needed the inspiration that her Grandpa once got from seeing the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}, she decided to send out a message in a bottle to see if people would be able to help her and {{Char=Mateo}} find it.

The letter she wrote stated: "If you know anything about a Pokémon called the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}, let me know right away." {{Char=Ash}} and his friends found the bottle near Sunburst Island and then decided to help her find the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} as {{Char=Ash}} said it wasn't polite to let a letter from a little girl go unanswered.

{{Char=Marissa}} went along with everyone as they searched the Sunburst Island for the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}. She was a bit scared when they initially found it but was happy that she was able to see it. {{Char=Marissa}} was very grateful to {{Char=Ash}} and his friends for helping her and her brother find the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}.

Crystal Onix - {{Char=Ash}} and {{Char=Misty}} first heard about the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} when they picked up a bottle in the ocean with a note in it written by {{Char=Marissa}} asking anyone if they knew anything about the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} to tell her. {{Char=Tracey}} explains to {{Char=Ash}} and {{Char=Misty}} that it's supposed to be an Onix made of glass crystal but he said he wasn't sure it was real. {{Char=Tracey}} states that there were people who said they've seen it but they were only rumors. {{Char=Ash}} stated at the time he'd love to see the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} and his wish came true when he saw it.

Team Rocket heard the rumor about the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} from some local merchants and decided they would try to capture the rare Pokémon. The {{Char=CrystalOnix}} just hit it with its tail and sent Team Rocket blasting off again.

The {{Char=CrystalOnix}} lives on a remote part of Sunburst Island in a cave. When the tide goes down, a sandbar appears to let people get to that part of the island. It isn't afraid of water like most normal Onix are and it often spends time in the underground lake in the cave. {{Char=Mateo}} battled it and knocked it out but before he tried to capture it, he felt something strange for a minute when he looked at the Onix. {{Char=Mateo}} explained that the feeling was hard to describe but he gained the inspiration he need to start working again on his Pokémon statues thanks to the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}. The {{Char=CrystalOnix}} then recovered and dove back into the water after {{Char=Mateo}} thanked it.

Tracey's Maril: {{Char=T-Marill}} was revealed when {{Char=Tracey}} decided that he needed a good Pokémon to help him find the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}. {{Char=T-Marill}} has very sensitive ears that can detect distant sounds and the round, rubbery tip of its tail can expand and contract, assisting Marill in the water. While swimming, {{Char=T-Marill}} tail floats so he can see where it's going.

{{Char=Misty}} realized that {{Char=Tracey}} and his Marill make a good team as {{Char=T-Marill}} could hear a Pokémon long before {{Char=Tracey}} could even see it. {{Char=Tracey}} would often play a Pokémon cry on his dex for Marill to help it learn what it sounded like so it could search for that particular Pokémon. {{Char=T-Marill}} ears would twitch when it was searching or it found something.

Mateo's Cloyster: {{Char=Mateo}} came prepared to battle the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} with his Cloyster. {{Char=Mateo}} thought that the {Char=CrystalOnix}} would be weak against Water attacks but its Water Gun bounced right off it. After trying to use multiple failed Water Gun attacks, it
was knocked out by the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}'s powerful Tackle attack.

Mateo's Charmeleon: After {{Char=M-Cloyster}} was knocked out by the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}, {{Char=M-Charmeleon}} was sent out to battle the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}. It used Flamethrower and Ember on it which seemed to be effective and made it super hot and knocked it out.

{{Char=M-Charmeleon}} is also {{Char=Mateo}}'s glass-making partner. They work together to make the amazing Pokémon statues out of glass that are sold in {{Char=Mateo}}'s shop. {{Char=M-Charmeleon}} uses its Flamethrower to help melt the sand they use into glass and to keep the glass molten while {{Char=Mateo}} blows the glass.

{{Char=Mateo}} - {{Char=Mateo}} runs a glass and crystal shop on Sunburst lsland. His little sister {{Char=Marissa}} lives with him and helps him run the shop. When {{Char=Ash}} and his friends met him, he wasn't feeling very well and didn't want to make glass anymore which was hurting their business. The local shopkeepers were complaining about him because he was hurting their business by not stocking any merchandise which made their stores look bad.

{{Char=Mateo}} explained that his creations just didn't have the spark that his Grandpa's Pokémon statues had as they always looked like they might come alive. {{Char=Mateo}} said he just needed some kind of inspiration and he hoped that capturing the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} would be that spark.

{{Char=Mateo}} told {{Char=Ash}} that he had looked for the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} all over the island but he couldn't find it anywhere. With the help of {{Char=T-Marill}}, {{Char=Mateo}} was able to find the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} in a cave in a remote part of Sunburst Island. He battle it but after he knocked it out felt something strange for a minute when he looked at the Onix. He explained that the feeling was hard to describe but he gained the inspiration he need to start working again on his Pokémon statues. As thanks for helping him, {{Char=Mateo}} made {{Char=Ash}} a small figure of Pikachu.

{{Char=Mateo}} & {{Char=Marissa}}'s Grandfather - {{Char=Mateo}} & {{Char=Marissa}}'s Grandfather ran a glass and crystal shop on Sunburst Island until he died. When he ran the store, it was full of glass and it was a big success. He was a really talented artist and he made beautiful glass Pokémon sculptures every day.

He told {{Char=Mateo}} all the time that when he was a young artist he saw the {{Char=CrystalOnix}} and that's what inspired him to make great sculptures. After seeing the {{Char=CrystalOnix}}, he turned out one great sculpture after another. Whenever he needed some inspiration, all he had to do was think of that {{Char=CrystalOnix}}. {{Char=Mateo}} & {{Char=Marissa}} took over his shop after he died and continued in his footsteps.
