ANP #051: A Touch of Grass


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Now THIS is a lounge lizard... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! We have a great show planned to start Season 3...safe, fun and non-toxic!

(No sooner does Ash say "toxic" does purples slime come falling onto him, much to the audience's delight)

Ash: I thought the slime war ended LAST season! (storms offstage to clean up. Misty peeks onstage to see what all the ruckus is)

Misty: Apparently it didn't... (laughter) Just don't say... (ponders how to say "toxic" without getting slimed herself) the T-word! (braces self for slime, but nothing happens) Anyway, tonight's show features the lounge lizard of the Houen starters...Treecko.

(applause as the spotlight appears on a Treecko. He waves to the audience, then adjusts his lucky twig)

Brock: Just curious, what IS the T-word?

Misty: The T-word is... (mouths the word "toxic" to avoid the slime. Brock nods to show he understands.)

Brock: Okay, so don't say 'toxic'.

(Treecko laughs as more purple slime comes falling onto Brock.)

Brock: Yuck...now I have it all over me! (heads backstage to clean up as Ash returns to the stage, all clean)

Misty: I handled your intro, so go ahead and start the cartoon while I clean the stage. (Ash nods and starts the projector, which the Treecko decides to watch)

(CARTOON-"Tree's a Crowd")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands gripping the handle of a lawn mower...after a twisting trip through the yard, we zoom up to take a look at the grassy Pikachu face Ash created as a female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!")

(May returns with the mini stage and sets it on the stage. Treecko watches, fascinated, as Brock also returns, now clean)

May: What happened to you?

Brock: Let's just say the slime war we started with Team Rocket isn't over yet.. (the Treecko laughs as Brock steps on the mini stage)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name.)

(We see the gang roasting marshmellows over the campfire. May, however, hasn't gotten a marshmellow to roast yet.)

Misty: Need a marshmellow? (offers a marshmellow to May)

May: Thanks! (May tries to put it on her stick, but it falls in the fire.) Oops!

(Everyone gasps as the campfire's flames grow larger)

Ash: Now you've gone and done it!

May: I think we need to run rather than blame me!

(laughter as everyone runs offstage screaming)

(We see Misty come onstage, teary eyed and dabbing at said tears with a hanky)

Misty: What's the matter?

(May fights back more tears as she tells Misty. No sooner does Misty hear the news, she bursts into tears and grabs a box of Kleenex)

(Ash hears both girls crying and comes onstage, concerned.)

Ash: What's the matter?

Both girls: We DON"T HAVE A SKIT!!!! (Ash tears up and buries his face in his cap as tears come streaming down his face. The audience goes "Aww..." as the scene fades out)

(Brock hears everyone crying as he comes onstage, guitar in hand)

Brock: What's the matter? Did you guys act out a tragedy or something? (May nods and reaches for another Kleenex.) I've got the perfect song to cheer you guys up. (to the band) Take it, guys...

[guitar intro]

Brock: I wake up and hear somebody call my name...that special voice, I remember
The ocean lulls me on to sleep, my thoughts are filled with dreams of you,
My heart dreams of you tonight...

Far away, I hear the sound of crying, and where they are, I cannot tell.
When hearts are sad, they do not know, the happiness that love can bring
Without that peace and joy inside, the sadness consumes them...

I look down on the pieces of, of a dream, a wish; beautiful wish,
These feelings inside of me, they are shining like the stars!
The sea, it rolls on into an orange sun sinking in the west
These tears of mine, they are washed away into the night...

[guitar/flute solo]

Brock: On that joyous day we were created...I awakened here, and I was called,
From the sky down to the deepest sea, I hear your sad voice call to me,
No matter how the darkness falls, or how gripping the pain...

I look down on the pieces of, of a dream, a wish; beautiful wish,
These feelings inside of me, they will drive the dark away!
And the sea keeps on rolling on, as the sky turns purple with the dawn
My wish for you, do you see it shining, shining through?

One day the time will come, all the war and pain will cease!
They will all just fade away...that day, I hope, comes soon!
So then, I'll sing, so that you and the world can hear; all around, unto every land and sea...

And so gently, I call your name...
Do you hear me? Will you heed my call?
Little one, I want you to know, of the wish I have for you!

I look down on the pieces of, of a dream, a wish; beautiful wish,
These feelings inside of me, they are shining like the stars!
The sea, it rolls on into an orange sun sinking in the west
These tears of mine, they are washed away into the night...

Na na na na, na na na na...

(Ash brushes away a tear as Brock concludes another solo)

Ash: Thanks, Brock...I feel better already...

May: Me too... (the Treecko skiiters to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"What You Seed is What You Get!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and the Treecko onstage)

Ash: Well, we're almost out of time for tonight...

May: I didn't know that skit would get everyone crying...

(Sure enough, sniffling is heard throughout the audience)

Ash: Don't cry, guys! We'll be back tomorrow at the same time! (applause) Until then, see ya!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #052: Now You're Playing With Power!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!"

Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Can we play it a little louder in here? (smiles over one last hit of music before the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight--

Brock(offstage): New day come, with energy, Mario is a runnin', a-runnin'... (Brock appears onstage carring a TV. He continues humming the Mario theme as he hooks it up, then returns backstage. Misty notes all this, bemused.)

Misty: What's with the TV?

Ash: Beats me...

Brock(offstage): Goomba down, then Koopa Troopa down, then Buzzy Beetle, you will beat them all.... (Brock comes back onstage carrying an SNES, which he hooks up to the TV. Once satisfied with his setup, he settles down before the TV and turns the SNES on, making the "Super Mario World" title theme blare into the theater.)

Ash: Brock, not now! We have a show to do!

Brock: Please?

Ash: Oh, all right, you talked me into it. (picks up the other control and joins the game. Suddenly the controls glow blue, sending both players inside the game!)

(When Ash and Brock come to a few minutes later, the first thing they notice is the scenery--various hills and pathways, all littered with Pokemon, ? blocks, and bricks. But the biggest change Ash notices is his hat: rather than the Japanese sign he's used to, there's now a red "A" in its place. Brock looks at an identical green hat, only there's a "B" for the letter)

Ash: Interesting place... (A Squirtle notices the twosome and runs up to them.) Huh?

Brock: Let's jump on it! (tries to jump, but discovers he can't.) Strange, we can't move!

(Back in the theater, Misty and May notice the TV's still on, as is the SNES)

May: I can't find the boys anywhere!

Misty: Me neither...where could they be? (is about to check under the couch when she hears tapping from the TV) Huh?

Brock: Girls! Can you hear me? (The girls settle before the TV, interested)

Misty: I hear you, Super Brock-io...(laughter)

May: and Ash-igi... (more laughter)

Ash: We need someone to play the game! That looks like our only chance of escaping!

May: I'll help! (grabs the control Ash was using and hits the reset button. Misty grabs the other control as May sets up the game.)

(Back in the game world, Ash and Brock watch as the background disappears, then reappears again. The words "Ash Start!" appear over Ash for a moment, then disappear as the overworld theme begins. Ash realizes he can move again, and proceeds to stomp on the Squirtle from earlier, sending it spiraling into a ? block. A Potion appears from the block, which Ash grabs as he passes by, making him grow twice as big. The next ? block Ash passes has an odd leaf inside...)

Ash: Wonder what this does? (grabs the leaf...and sprouts Zigzagoon ears and a tail!) What the?

(In the theater, May smiles as she plays, making Zigzagoon Ash grab coins and stomp on Squirtles and Digletts)

Misty: You know, Zigzagoon can fly...

May: Oh, cool... (starts to make Zigzagoon Ash run...)

(In the game world, Ash feels more and more power flowing into him as he runs faster and faster...until he jumps into the air and begins to fly! Brock watches from below as Ash twirls and dives above him.)

Brock: How come I didn't get Zigzagoon ears and you did?

Ash: Grab a leaf! (soars up and grabs a few coins--before colliding with a winged Squirtle, making the Zigzagoon ears and tail disappear from Ash.)

Brock: Uh...

(Ash realizes there's no ground underneath him)

Ash: EEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! (falls off the screen, where Brock hears him land with a crash)

(In the theater, May grits her teeth as her life count decreases by 1)

May: Stupid winged Squirtle...your turn, Misty...

Misty: Let's see how I do! (readies her controls)

(Back in the game world, Ash reappears next to Brock)

Brock: Rough landing?

Ash: Yeah... (rubs his head in pain as Brock prepares to try his luck.)

(The words "Brock Start!" appear over Brock's head, then disappears as the overworld theme begins again. After taking more or less the same route Ash took (including gaining Zigzagoon ears and a tail), he sees a row of ? blocks in the distance. Most of these are coins, but one of them turns out to be an egg! It falls to the ground and hatches, making a Doduo appear before Brock.)

Brock: Why hello... (climbs aboard the Doduo, making a guitar appear in the music. After mowing down more Digletts, Squirtles, and the occasional Sandslash, Brock finds a musical note powerup...)

(In the theater, Misty notes the note powerup as well)

Misty: Wonder what this does? (grabs the note)

(Brock hops off the Doduo and grabs the note...but then he has the urge to sing!)

Brock: I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave,
I sent the zombies back into the grave!
I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave!
Prepare for action, get ready for the game!

(a techno beat begins as Brock mows down a wave of Digletts with a Squirtle shell)

Brock: I'm going down, going down, going underground... (Brock jumps on a pipe and enters it)
I'm gonna find the hidden gate to Level 2... (As Brock sings this, he spots a pipe with "Level 2" over it. Ash stands nearby, and they both enter together.)
I'm looking up, looking up, looking at the jump... (Ash and Brock stand at the top of a hill, with an omnious drop ahead of them.)
The doors are closing now, there's only one thing to do!

Misty: You'd better reach the gate, before the game is over!
I'd better stop and save, or use the awesome power! (at this, Ash and Brock both grab flashing TMs, rendering them invincible!)

Brock: I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave,
I sent the zombies back into the grave!
I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave!
Prepare for action, get ready for the game!

I gotta run, gotta run from the rolling stone... (Ash and Brock both run from a giant rock as their invincibility wears off)
I'm diving under the temple of doom... (Ash and Brock dive into Tentacool and Gldeen infested ruins)
I have to jump, have to jump across the toxic swamp, (Ash and brock each grab Silver Wings from two ? blocks by a murky swamp, giving them silver capes that allow them to fly across easily)
The gate behind me's closed, in the racing pool!

Misty: You'd better reach the gate, before the game is over!
I'd better stop and save, or use the awesome power! (this time, the duo grabs Tamato Berries, turning their clothes red and orange. Ash rains fieballs on the enemies as Brock continues to sing.)

Brock: I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave,
I sent the zombies back into the grave!
I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave!
Prepare for action, get ready for the game!

I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave,
I sent the zombies back into the grave!
I fight the monsters with my supersonic wave!
Prepare for action, get ready for the game!

(the techno beat continues as Ash and Brock continue jumping, raining fireballs and climbing hills...)

Misty: I'd better stop and save...I better stop and save, the game is over! (no sooner does she hit the SAVE box and save, do Ash and Brock emerge from the TV, back to normal.)

Ash: Whew...

Brock: Now I know how Mario feels! (laughter)

Ash: We're about out of time for tonight....

Brock: Rematch? (brandishes a control)

Ash: Okay...(takes the other control) We'll see ya next time! (Pikachu watches, bemused)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. The Super Mario Bros. 3 ending plays as the credits roll)

ANP #053: Return of the Beasts


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Go, Beast racer, Go, Beast racer, Go Beast racer, go! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight--

(Ash is interrupted by music, and Brock appears in a spotlight dancing, On the final fanfare of the song, he dances offstage, to some applause)

Ash: Thanks, Brock...anyway, tonight--

(Brock dances back onstage and does the whole routine again)

Ash: Yes, Brock, we know you can dance...tonight--

(Brock returns to the stage and does his whole dance again)

Ash: Okay, you've danced enough! Tonight--

(Brock returns to the stage and does the whole dance again. By now, Ash is getting annoyed.)

Ash: Somebody draw the cane...

(Brock returns to the stage and starts to dance again, but the cane yanks him offstage before he can finish.)

Ash: Finally... (mild laughter) Tonight we feature one of the not-so-well known legends of the world...how many of you are familiar with the legend of the Beast Riders? (looks around for raised hands) Would you believe me if I told you that the legend is true?

(wild applause and cheers)

Ash: With that in mind, please welcome the Beast Riders to the stage! (leads the applause as three figures, one aboard a Raikou, another aboard an Entei, and a third aboard a Suicune enter. The Raikou rider climbs off his mount and shakes hands with Ash.) Josh...(gestures to the Raikou rider) Ace...(gestures to the Entei rider) and Aravan. (gestures to the Suicune rider)

Josh: A pleasure to be here...

Ace: Nice place you've got, Ash...

Aravan: I'm honored to be here...

Ash: The pleasure's all ours...and don't you three worry, this show is safe and non-toxic!

(No sooner does Ash say "toxic", does purple slime come falling onto him)

Ace: Ew...

(Misty runs onstage and winces at the mess)

Misty: Please excuse our mess...watch this while we clean it up. (starts the projector, then runs to get a mop)

(CARTOON-"Pokemon 4Ever" montage)

(We see some live Ash hands clutching to a Raikou's fur as the background whizzes by. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the Raikou speeds off, leaving pawprints on the ground. When we look down at the pawprints the Raikou made, one of them is actually Pikachu's face!)

(May arrives with the mini-stage just as Ash returns to the stage, now clean)

May: Ooh, such pretty Pokemon...(admires the Beasts)

Josh: You should be careful around them...they can get to be a handful.

(The Raikou takes an interest in May, and proceeds to give her a big wet kiss on the cheek)

May: Gah! That tickles! (laughs as the Raikou licks her again and again)

Josh: Swift, enough! (the Raikou stops licking May, allowing her to set up the mini stage...) I think Swift likes you...

May: Probably because he smelled the scent of Skitty on me! (laughter) Do you guys want to act with us?

Ace: I do!

Josh: Me too, but...depends on what we have to do.

Aravan: Only if they aren't stupid... (joins his teammates on the mini stage.)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Curtain Up' with May" May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see the girls playing Rock Paper Scissors, but tying every time. Ash walks in and watches for a while, but after 10 or so tries, he starts getting a little annoyed.)

Ash: Girls, you need to pick a skit for us to do for the Beast Riders.

Misty: We're trying! (continues playing with May as Ash walks off) Rock, Paper, Scissors! (the girls tie again)

May: I give up...how about you pick the skit?

Misty: I'm not sure what they'll like, so YOU pick the skit!

May: I picked the skit last time! YOU do it!

Misty: There's only one way to settle this...Rock, Paper, Scissors! (the girls tie again)

(In another room, the three riders are sparring to pass the time. Josh lunges foward, but Ace parries the move, then tries to lunge himself. Josh is quick to defend, knocking Ace to the ground. Ace gets up and retrieves his blade...)

(a "Several hours later..." title card appears)

(The girls are still playing when Ash returns with the Beast Riders)

Ash: Still nothing?

Both girls: No...

Ash: I know a way we can settle this...Rock, Paper, Scissors! (all three tie. Laughter and applause as the Beast Riders roll their eyes)

(We see Josh standing against the background of a forest)

Josh: Being a Beast Rider, I just thought I share some of my favorite sounds I hear when riding Swift. There's the wind ruffling in my hair...

(Offscreen, May turns on a fan; making various objects blow past Josh)

Josh: ...the water racing in the river...

(Offscreen, Ash pours several hundred cups of water in buckets, imitating the sound of a rushing river)

Josh: ...Swift howling as we race along...

(Offscreen, Brock does a perfect impression of a Raikou howl)

Josh: ...and my personal favorite: confused trainers.

Misty(offscreen): Whoa! What was that? (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(The girls and Ash are laughing when we return to the main stage)

Misty: I bet you hear a lot of confused trainers! (laughs some more)

Ace: I have footage of us riding! (sticks a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-Beast Rider montage)

(We join Ash, Brock and the band onstage-Ash has his Pokeflute, and Brock has some bongo drums)

Brock: I thought I'd give the guitar a rest tonight... (laughter) Take it, Ash...

(Ash plays a light riff, then Brock picks up the pace with some exuberant drumming)

Brock: Ho'oh came down from heaven,
Just to see a matinee!
Every moment brought a miracle
Like the day she came my way!

She said, "I flew
Right out of paradise,
Just to find piece of mind."

She said, "I don't regret a minute of it,
Cause I'm havin' a good time!"
Then she came, came to me!
And whispered in my ear,

Ash and Brock: I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!

(Brock proceeds to perform a vocal trumpet solo, while Ash counters with a Pokeflute riff)

Brock: An angel came down from heaven,
Just to feel a rainy day!
Every raindrop brought such joy and pain,
Like the day she walked my way!

Well, she wrapped her arms around me,
Spoke so tenderly,
"Just as long as you are willing," she said,
"It's not hard to be free!"
Then she turned to leave,
Then she whispered in my ear,

I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!

(As Brock continues singing "I would do anything", the girls and the Beast Riders join in with the percussion singing "Nomani dakedo" as a countermelody while Ash continues playing)

Brock: AI! (wild applause as the gang and the band bow)

Ace: Bravo!

Josh: Encore!

(Pikachu, meanwhile, skitters over to the projector and starts it while the audiences continues to applaud)

(CARTOON-"Raikou! Legend of Thunder" montage)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and the Beast Riders onstage)

Ash: Well, we're almost out of time...(to the Beast Riders) Thanks for stopping by, guys.

Ace: We had fun, too, so thank YOU, Ashy-boy! (laughter as Ash blushes)

Ash: See you next time (he and the Beast Riders wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

This one is coolie. Is it base on a friend's fanfic? It seems cool. I guess we were due for a cane gag. Next try the cane gag during the middle of the show so it won't get repetive.

it was okay. But when you have a character's name you MUST put it in bold. When the character is doing actions you also have to make the perentheses in Italic. Just trying to help.

ANP #054: Pokemon a la Mode



(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Won't you keep them for me, my sweet heart? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! We have a real treat for you tonight...we got so many letters and e-mails about the Sailor Moon episode, we decided to host another team of magical girls tonight! (applause as Ash walks over to stage left, where May is waiting by the Transporter) All right, May...enter the coordinates, if you would please...

May: Got it! (punches in the numbers)

Transporter: Coordinates entered: 041802... (Misty enters reading a Tokyo Mew Mew manga)

Misty: ::giggles:: Poor Ichigo... (laughs again at the scene)

Transporter: Destination: Tokyo. (Misty drops the manga in surprise when she hears the destination.)

Misty: You're...you're...

Ash: Yeah, I'm summoning the Mews here! (smiles as the five Mew Mews land in a heap by the Transporter. Ichigo and Zakuro struggle to get up as Masha flies over to inspect Pikachu.)

Masha: Chimera anima not detected...this is an interesting creature, though.

Ash: He's not a cameira-whatever-you-said, he's a Pikachu. (Masha stares at Ash, confused.) Here, let me show you. (flips open his Pokedex and lets Masha listen.)

Dexette: Pikachu, the mouse Pokemon. It stores electricity in the electric sacs on its cheeks. When it releases pent-up energy in a burst, the electric power is equal to a lightning bolt.

Ichigo: I've heard of these little guys, but I never dreamed I'd see a live one! (pets Pikachu while Mint winces in disgust)

Misty(to Ash): Should I tell the girls about the slime word?

Ash: Good idea...(to the Mews) Girls, you need to be careful what you say while you're here...the prop crew likes to play tricks on everyone by dumping slime on them if they say a certain word...

(Before Ash can say any more, some music cuts him off as Purin appears in a yellow spotlight balancing on a ball. The audience watches as Lettuce--in a green spotlight-- tosses various pieces of silverware to Purin, who catches the flying silverware on her head. The audience applauds when the two finish.)

Ash: I didn't meen THAT kind of trick...

Purin: Then what kind of trick did you mean, magic? (summons a deck of cards) Pick a card. (Bemused, Ash draws a card) You picked the 3 of clubs!

Ash: How'd you know? (reveals the card, which not surprisingly is the 3 of clubs)

Purin: Magic, I guess...(laughs as Zakuro approaches)

Zakuro: Now, Purin, that's enough...you know it's not very nice to interrupt the host when he's talking. (Purin slinks away) Now, what is this word that results in a big mess?

Mint: What I want to know is how Ichigo can enjoy petting that filthy, toxic rodent! (points out Ichigo still cuddling Pikachu)

(No sooner does Mint say "toxic" does purple slime come falling onto her)

Mint: Ee-yah! Now I'm all sticky and gooey! (laughter as Mint tries to wade through the slime, but slips and falls every time. Ash sighs, embarrassed)

Ash: That was the word that makes a mess... (laughter as Mint storms offstage to clean up)

Purin: What word, toxic?

(Purin yelps in surprise as more purple slime comes falling onto her)

Purin: Ew, now I'm all messy too... (Ichigo and Misty start towards the projector as Purin races offstage. The boys run to get mops.)

Ichigo: Please watch this while we clean up our mess, nyan! (Misty smiles as Ichigo threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Taming of the Mew")

(We see a pair of anime Ash hands as he admires an array of treats before him. Finally, Ichigo appears and sets a cake before Ash. Ichigo smiles and says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show', nyan!" A closer look at the cake reveals that it's Pikachu's face!)

(Applause as we return to the stage, where Ash is seated before the grand piano.)

Ash: Mint okay?

Lettuce: I think so, I explained that what she said was the word that made a mess...she calmed down after that.

Ichigo: At least in time to do a little ballet for us! (watches as Mint appears in a blue tutu, to some applause)

Zakuro: Maestro...

(Ash proceeds to play the "Waltz of the Flowers" as Mint twirls and jumps about the stage. She bows when the dance concludes, then acknowledges Ash, who also bows)

Lettuce: Bravo!

Purin: Encore!

Misty: Okay...before you guys return to your world, we have something special for you guys as thanks for coming to see us...

Ichigo: A surprise?

Purin: Oh boy! I love surprises!

Misty: Take it guys...

(spotlights come up on Brock and the band. Brock is, of course, strumming away on his trusty guitar)

Brock: A ribbon tied up in your hair, I see you smile with pride
I have a feeling in my soul, that I am somebody new
A little courage in my heart, grows into confidence
I hope and pray I don't forget, the day that I met you!

Although you're just a young girl, you fear no evil!
Are you ready to unleash the magic in your heart?

It's show time!

My heart races, the power flows! Give me strength and will, my feelings show...
Now you will see my braver side, you see, that I am stronger!
More and more will my spirit grow! You consume me, till my heart overflows!
I send these wishes from my heart to yours...
Won't you keep them for me, my sweet heart?

The light of flowers in full bloom, they brighten the dark world, and tomorrow their brillant light will come from our secret place
The greatest name of all, I know, goes to the end of time, and my heart flies away with hope, across the endless sea...

Although you're just a young girl, your beauty becomes your strength...
Character is important so win the fight with pride!

It's show time!

As it rains, keep trying to fight! A new beginning comes with a hero's might!
Although we are inside an unknown world, keep showing your true form!
Over and over, I see you rise!
My one true dream, guides us all through life...
I send these promises for you to keep,
Miracles will never change my mind!

It's show time!

My heart races, the power flows! Give me strength and will, my feelings show...
Now you will see my braver side, you see, that I am stronger!
More and more will my spirit grow! You consume me, till my heart overflows!
I send these wishes from my heart to yours...
Won't you keep them for me, my sweet heart?
Won't you keep them for me, my sweet heart?
Won't you keep them for me?
My...
Sweet...
Heart! (applause as Brock and the band bow. May, meanwhile, waits by the projector)

May: Some more Mew Mew goodness... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Party Till You Mew!")

(We join the cast onstage as the portal closes up)

Misty: Thank you so much for bringing the Mews here!

Ash: Any time...I knew you'd enjoy it! (is glomped by Misty) We're--oof!--almost out of--ow!--time tonight, so--ow!--see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

ANP #055: Sisterly Love



(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Talk about sibling rivalry... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's guests need no introduction--

Lily: Cut the chat, let's get this show rolling! (applause as Lilly, Violet, and Daisy--aka the Cerulean Sisters--come onstage to some applause. Misty, meanwhile, watches from backstage, appalled by her sister's behavior)

Misty: How dare they steal Ash's introduction? Don't they know that Ash is supposed to introduce them first?

May: Why didn't you tell them that?

Misty: I did, but no...they have to push Ash aside and act like they run the show!

(Misty's dream sequence-a harp and bell version of On Our Way plays in the background as the Cerulean Sisters, in the role of mermaids, come swimming by as "The Cerulean Sister Show" fades into the scene in an ornate font. When the title card appears, a record scrape is heard as Misty's head appears in the o in "Show", leaving a hole in the scene)

Misty: Hate to say it, girls, but this is not "The Cerulean Sister Show"! (proceeds to rip the parody title card to shreds. She returns to the wings, clutching a few pieces of the parody title card in her fists as Daisy threads a reel in the projector.)

(CARTOON-"The Water Flowers of Cerulean City")

(May returns backstage with a snack, all the while watching as Ash and Misty listen to Daisy introducing the next act.)

May: Some manners your sisters have...

Ash: Yeah...they hijacked my intro and now they seem to have hijacked the show!

Misty: The things I'd like to do to them... (grabs a pencil and starts towards the drawing board)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper)

(The three sisters are drawn and colored)

Lily: Where'd the background go?

Ash(voiceover): You're in the Land of Blank Paper, girls.

Misty: Every day you find something to taunt me about, but now I have my revenge! (The pencil draws three mallets above the Sister's heads, squishing them down to pancakes. All three are stretched back to normal, but they are folded like the folds of an accordion. They even make accordion noises as they bob!)

Violet: Easy on the hair, girl!

Misty(voiceover): Tell that to my buddy Mr. Pencil... (the pencil draws a desert scene--the resulting heat makes Violet's hair stick up in at least twelve different directions)

Daisy: Geez, it's hot... (wipes the sweat from her brow.)

(The pencil erases the desert scene and draws Brock in the scene facing the still folded Sisters)

Misty: I think you guys need to be played with... (the pencil draws more Brocks, each holding a different instrument. The original Brock picks up Daisy and begins to play her like an accordion while the duplicates play their instruments to back him up.)

(When the Brock band finishes one song, the original Brock switches to playing Lily.)

(The pencil adds in more Brocks, this time as dancers. The Brock band joins in as the original Brock plays Violet for the finale of the set. All the duplicates bow as the words "The End" appears over the original Brock.)

(May laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

May: You'd REALLY do that to your sisters?

Misty: I'm mad enough to do that right now...(is about to head towards the wings when she notices Brock in the wings, tuning his guitar.) Huh?

Brock: I struck a deal with the Sisters...they stop running the show if I sing for them...

Misty: That works...they're such prima donnas anyway.

(music begins as Brock and the band appear in spotlights)

Brock: There's still one more thing, that will never, ever change,
This dream, that I'm forever drawing...
The person I am now, could it possibly reflect
All of my days inside my very own two eyes?

Hey, will you look up?
Take a look into the sky,
See how it rolls along?
So...very soon...
I understand!
Give it all I have!
It is time for me to rise and shine!
I'm searching for a full moon...

Let's sing a song!
So that we can be bound, just the two of us
I am doing all I can, all of this for you!

Day by day,
I embrace my yesterday,
When tomorrow comes,
I'll always be holding this hope inside me!

Let's sing a song!
If my faith allows, I will be with you,
You are giving me the strength to face any pain!

More and more,
Closer, closer, closer now, I come to you
And I have this message for you:
Many thanks to you! (Misty tiptoes over and starts the projector as Brock and the band solo)

(CARTOON-"The Misty Mermaid")

(We join Ash, Pikachu and Misty onstage)

Ash: Well, that was one guest star visit that turned sour...

Misty: You know my sisters, Ash...prima donnas! (laughter)

Ash: We're out of time tonight, so we'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. 'On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

The comic was funny. I like it a lot. For once Brock wasn't hurt in the comic. That was funny!!

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Forgive me for not leaping for Joy... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we focus on someone who's always handy if your Pokemon need a little TLC...

Misty: ...and that's as far as we need to go, lest Mr. Lovebird figures out who's starring tonight. (leads the applause as Nurse Joy enters, a pair of Chanseys behind her)

Nurse Joy: Oh, Misty, Ash, you two can introduce me by name if you like...

Ash: Well, we all know what happens if we do that, Nurse Joy...

Brock(offstage): My LOVELY one!!!

(Nurse Joy, Misty, and Ash step aside as Brock races past, only to crash into something backstage)

Ash: That happens... (laughter as a Chansey hands him a reel)

Nurse Joy: I was looking through the video cabinet, and I found that. (Ash nods as he threads the reel into the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Joy of Pokemon", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands examining a patient's record as he strolls down a hospital hallway. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash passes by an EKG monitor. As we zoom in closer to the monitor, one EKG blip turns into a Pikachu face!)

(We see Misty backstage, doodling as a Chansey watches, insterested)

Chansey: Chansey?

Misty: Oh, I'm just making random scribbles... (a wavy line comes alive, then fades away)

Chansey: Chan... (watches a squiggle float by her, then fade away)

Nurse Joy: With magic pencils, even the scribbles come alive! (Chansey laughs as Misty goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): I'll be using Brock is a visual aid while you tell the viewers at home some tips for recovering from illness.

Brock: Is that all I'm good for to you? A visual aid?

Misty: Try telling that to Mr. Eraser...

(a pink eraser looms over Brock)

Brock: Okay, I'll behave! Anything but the eraser! (the eraser disappears)

Nurse Joy(voiceover): All right...a few tips on getting well for the viewers at home...but you might want to make our character sick first.

Misty(voiceover): Can do! (the pencil draws a Dr. Mario-esque virus, which crawls into Brock. Brock proceeds to cough and sputter)

Brock: Geez, you had to bake be cub dowd wid a code...(groans in pain, then blows his nose with a honk, making Psyduck peek in the scene.) You stay out of dis. (Psyduck disappears)

Nurse Joy(voiceover): The best way of getting well is plenty of bed rest.

(the pencil draws a bed and a nightstand. Brock climbs into bed, and does off)

(a 'Time Passes' card appears)

(Brock climbs out of the bed, still miserable, and trudges into the kitchen.)

Nurse Joy(voiceover): Another way is by consuming plenty of fluids...and let's not forget our good friend chicken soup. (Brock searches the kitchen for any sort of liquid he can find, as well as cans of chicken soup)

(Several hours later, soup and beverage cans litter the floor, and Brock is still not feeling any better)

Brock: Stubid code... (blows his nose again)

Nurse Joy(voiceover): Medicine will help ease aches, and clear stuffy heads.

(Brock opens the medicine cabinet, takes the bottle marked "ASPRIN", shakes out two pills, and takes them)

Misty: How you feeling?

Brock: Much better! (puts the medicine away. The asprin's label now spells "The End")

(Chansey laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

Misty: I'm feeling generous today, so... (signs her name on the last panel and tears off the paper)

Nurse Joy: Thank's Misty...I'll put it up in the Pokemon Center so everyone can see it. (smiles as Chansey starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Joy of Pokemon", part 2)

(We join Ash, Brock, and the band onstage)

Ash: Here's a song we haven't heard in a while...

[piano chord] (Brock, speaking) A one woman man's what I wanna be....
[another piano chord] Stay by her side SO faithfully...
[and another piano chord] I would if I could, but it's just no good!
[one more piano chord] (Brock begins singing here) Cause there's two perfect girls for me-hee... (laughs) All right! (music picks up)

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

Oh yeah...

Officer Jenny, can't you see?
You can lock me up and throw away the key!
Jenny...if lovin' you's a crime
Then sentence me now, and I'll do the time!
My uniformed beauty is simply the best!
Got my heart under house arrest!
But before that cop makes me her boy,
I'm head over heels... (he's head over heels) I'm head over heels for a nurse named Joy...

Ooo!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

All right!

Nurse Joy, won't you please?
Cure me of this bad disease?
Oh, Joy, the diagnosis please,
When I see your face, my knees get weak!
Well, I'm burnin' up...I got the fever,
She's my perfect nurse and I'll never leave her!
Her bedside manner has healed so many,
But why am I in love... (why's he so in love?) Why am I in love with Officer Jenny...

Yeah!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

All right! Swing it!

[dance break]

A one woman man's what I wanna be,
But there's two perfect girls for me-heeeee.....

Oh, I try...and I try...and I still sweat deep inside...
From these two, I can't choose, I can't stand the bad news,
Bout the name of the girl that I love, ooo!

This can't go on, enough is enough!
I've got to pick one, no matter how tough!
It's time for eeny-meeny, miney-moe...
But wait a second... (wait a second) Wait a second! (come on and wait a second) What's her name? I just gotta know...

I've just gotta know!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be,
But there's one... no, two...
No, three-four-five-six-seven...so many...
Perfect girls for me-heeeeeee! All right! (wild applause as Brock and the band take their bows)

Ash: I think we have time for this.... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Jump for Joy!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Nurse Joy onstage)

Ash: Well, we're out of time for tonight...

Nurse Joy: It was a pleasure being here, Ash...

Ash: We had fun too, but we'll see you next time! (he and Nurse Joy wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: There's magic in the air, all right... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as the spotlight appears at center stage, but no Ash)

Offstage voice: The Legendaries are watching, have faith! Spirit!

(Applause as Ash appears in a puff of red smoke, clad in his movie 8 costume)

Ash: Thank you! (waves the smoke away) Tonight we want to focus on the one Pokemon that gave us all magic, and will even give YOU magic if you prove yourself worthy. (applause) To call him here, let's send in our resident summoner...(a spotlight comes up on Brock, who is also wearing his movie 8 costume)

Brock: Open the doors to where power lives! Rukario!

(a warp hole opens, revealing a starry sky. After a few tense seconds, Rukario floats down and assumes a supine position before Ash)

Ash: Welcome...

Rukario: Hmmm...what is this place? So many people...

Ash: They came to see your magical powers!

(Rukario ignores Ash, and hovers over to the projector)

Rukario: I have heard of devices like these... (continues inspecting the projector) What does this do? (flicks the switch to start the projector...)

(CARTOON-movie 8 montage #1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands before a Tyrannitar-like monster, We hear Ash say "Swirling bolts, gather and strike with power! Thunder!" The monster howls in pain as the thunderbolts criss cross it. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as one of the criss crossing thunderbolts turns into Pikachu's face!)

(In the theater, Rukario watches the eyecatch with interest)

Rukario: Great shot, Ash...although I don't understand why the battle was that short...

Ash: What you saw was an eyecatch--they're supposed to be that short.

Rukario: That one didn't catch any eyes, did it? (light laugter as we see Rukario's thoughts--an eye caught in a trap)

Misty: No, of course not! Eyecatches are designed to tell the viewers what they're watching, not catch eyes...

Rukario: I see.. (spots a few chocolates by the drawing board) Oh! That sweet brown stuff Ash fed me! (helps himself to some chocolate as Misty goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board"")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

Rukario(voiceover): Wait a minute...won't the people at home be confused by a blank screen?

Misty(voiceover): They're looking at a blank piece of paper...because I haven't drawn anything yet!

(The pencil appears and draws Brock on the screen in his normal clothes)

Rukario(voiceover): Let me add on a few things... (the pencil draws Brock's movie 8 costume on him, plus a few solid colored Poke Balls)

Misty: And I'll add the finishing touches. (the pencil draws a Salamence-like monster)

Brock: ::gulp:: (backs away as the monster approaches)

Rukario(voiceover): You have magic within you! Now's the chance to use it!

Brock: Okay... (grabs a light blue summon ball) Scatter frozen blades of air! Articuno! (heaves the ball skyward)

(Articuno appears in an icy wind and uses Blizzard on the monster)

Misty(voiceover): That had to hurt....

(The monster breathes a blast of fire, singing Brock a little)

Brock: Two can play at this game... (heaves a red summon ball skyward) Flames, gather and destroy! Entei!

(Entei appears in a flash of fire and delivers a Fire Spin to the monster)

Rukario(voiceover): You almost have him! Deliver the final blow!

Brock: I have just the summon to do it.... (heaves a purple summon ball skyward) Destiny lies in my hands...Mew!

(Mew appears an a flash of light and uses Psychic. The monster falls, defeated, with the words "The End" floating over it)

(Rukario nibbles on more chocolate as Misty finishes the last scene. Ash arrives to check on him)

Ash: Doing all right back here?

Rukario: Yes, thank you...

Ash: Have some entertainment with your treat...(steps aside as spotlights come up on Brock and the band)

[guitar intro]

Brock: La la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la...

[music picks up]

There’s a place I know; it’s always jumping
I’m thinking we should go and leave our worries

You gotta friend in me; and I’ll tell you something
This time could be extraordinary

When shadows fall, your feeling small
It looks like walls are closing in
Don’t be afraid the dark will fade
Just take my hand and look again

This side of paradise
Is where I want to be
This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
What you get is what you see
And I never thought I’d see a place as nice
This side of paradise
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

We’re gonna take a ride; we’re gonna catch that train
When you’re at my side the world has hope and

As we pass on by; we all look the same
The clouds are the world is open

Forget about the pain and doubt
Your happiness is overdue
I’ve been dreamin’ of the skies above
Dancing through the stars with you
Well, take me too

This side of paradise
Is where I want to be
This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
What you get is what you see
And I never thought I’d see a place as nice
This side of paradise
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

[dance break/long guitar solo]

This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
I’ve been dreamin’

This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
I’ve been dreamin’

This side of paradise
This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
La la la la la la la la la la
This side of paradise
Is where I want to be
This side of paradise
For you and me
This side of paradise
What you get is what you see
And I never thought I’d see a place as nice
This side of paradise
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

As we pass on by; we all look the same
The clouds are high, the world is open.... (bows as the audience applauds)

Rukario: Bravo! Encore! (Ash tiptoes over to the projector as Rukario continues to applaud)

(CARTOON-movie 8 montage #2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Rukario onstage)

Rukario: I must say, I had a wonderful evening....

Ash: I did too...unfortunately, we're out of time...

(an "Aww..." goes up from the audience)

Ash: But don't worry! We'll be back tomorrow at the same time! (applause)

ANP #58: You've Got LOTS of Mail!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: You've got mail, I've got the answers. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We see a logon prompt: "Welcome to KOL...please enter username and password." Brock's hands appear and type the username "PewterSong" into the username field and some stars (his password) in the password field)

Brock(voiceover): Hmm...time to check the ol' mailbag...part of the fun of doing the show is seeing what you guys have to say about it--or have to say about life in general. So let's see what I've got in my inbox today...(the mouse clicks the "Mail" icon)

(May walks up to the computer Brock is on)

May: Seeing what the fans have to say?

Brock: Yeah...you can look too. (May pulls up a chair as the camera refocuses on the screen) Let's see...(reads the first e-mail's subject line) You've been approved for a low rate mortage? (clicks "Delete") I think not!

May: I get those too...they're so annoying!

Brock: Rule of e-mail checking number 1: If you didn't ask for it, it's spam.

(a few cans of Spam fall on Brock)

Brock: I didn't mean that kind of spam....(shoves the cans off the desk) Anyway, on to the next e-mail...(clicks it) Dear Brock: How do you always come up with such great songs?...well...(clicks Reply) Inspiration for me comes pretty easily. One thing I like doing is taking a notebook with me while I'm out and about.

(We see a black and white notebook with "Brock's Song Lyric Notebook" on it. It's tucked under a chibi Brock's arm as he walks along a road)

Brock(voiceover): This way, if I see something that inspires me... (Chibi Brock notices Chibi Ash playing with Chibi Pikachu, but Chibi Ash trips over a rock and falls) I can write it down so I don't forget it later.

(We see a piece of notebook paper on the screen. A pencil appears and writes in Brock's handwriting "Ash playing with Pikachu. Ash tripped on a rock and fell")

Brock(voiceover): Then, when I get to my guitar, I have material to work with.

(As Brock is talking, we see Chibi Brock strumming a guitar and singing what the pencil wrote down earlier in a flat and offkey voice)

Brock(voiceover): Another option is to take along a tape recorder.

(We see a tape recorder with "Brock's Tape Recorder" on it)

Brock(voiceover): This is helpful because if you hear something nice... (Chibi Brock hears Chibi Ash playing a relaxing melody on a Pokeflute) you can record it...(Chibi Brock records Chibi Ash's song) and try it on your own instrument. (We see Chibi Brock practicing the song on his guitar as the scene returns to Brock typing his reply.)

May: That's it?

Brock: For now...(types some more) Sincerely, Brock. (clicks Send)

May: Okay! What does the next one say?

Brock: Let's find out...(clicks it) Dear Brock: how many songs do you paly a day?

May: That guy needs to learn some spelling...

Brock: Really... (clicks Reply) I paly one song a day on the show. I would paly more, but Misty usually yanks me offstage before I can paly any more.

(We see a montage of all the times Brock's been yanked offstage)

Brock: If you'd like to hear all the songs I have palyed, check our media section out. Sincerely, Brock. (clicks Send, May is trying not to laugh)

May: You misspelled "play" every time! (laughs)

Brock: He didn't use a spell checker, so I get to make fun of him. (clicks the next e-mail) If you don't forward this to 10 people you'll be shocked by a Pikachu? (clicks Delete) Yeah, right...

(Pikachu walks by the computer and sneezes, shocking Brock in the process. When we see Brock again, thunderbolts criss cross him)

May: Next time you may want to consider forwarding those! (laughs)

Brock: Whatever. (clicks the next e-mail) SPAMSPAMSPAM...oh whatever. (hits "Delete") You're not fooling me, Sir Spamalot. (proceeds to delete all e-mails with the same screenname, making his e-mail list considerably shorter, and clicks on the next one) Foward to 5 people and win 10,000,000 credits? (hits Delete) I have enough credits already...

May: I hate those too...

Brock: Okay...that's the last one...(turns the lights off as the computer goes into screensaver mode.) See ya next time...

ANP #59: Deadly Towers


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Deadly towers? What's so deadly about'em? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we continue our look at the Frontier Brains...so let's welcome the lovely maiden of the Battle Tower, Anabel!

(Applause as Anabel appears on stage)

Anabel: Thank you, thank you....and thank you, Ash; for allowing me to join you tonight.

Ash: The pleasure's all mine.

Anabel: I brought you something...(rummages in a bag for something) Funny...where'd my footage go?

Ash: I think Pikachu found it already. (We see Pikachu threading a reel in the projector. He starts it, then curls up in Anabel's lap to watch)

(CARTOON-"The Battle Tower of Terror!", part 1)

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands clasped together inside an elevator. After waiting a few moments (and listening to the strangely catchy elevator music), the doors open, and Ash steps out on the observation deck of the Battle Tower and approaches some binoculars. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash looks in the binoculars...one of the clouds resembles a Pikachu face.)

(Anabel pets Pikachu as the projector rewinds)

Anabel: Look at that... (strokes the snoozing Pikachu)

Ash: He fell asleep right in your arms! Let me wake him up...(nudges Pikachu) Hey, Pikachu...(Pikachu doesn't budge. Ash opens one of Pikachu's eyes to see Mareeps jumping over a fence) Must be having a great dream...

(Suddenly, the notes of a trumpet blaring "Reville" startle Ash and Anabel, also startling Pikachu awake! Ash looks to see where the music's coming from, and spots Brock playing the aforementioned trumpet. )

Anabel: What was THAT for?

Pikachu: Pika pika?

Brock: I wanted to wake Pikachu up in time to see Misty draw a comic! (gestures to Misty setting up the drawing board. Pikachu darts from Anabel's hand and climbs on the board to watch.)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, what shall we do to Brock to get him back for waking you up?

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Pikachu(voiceover): Pika pika Pipika pi!

(a pie comes out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)

(Brock cleans the pie from his face)

Misty(voiceover): I have a better idea.... (the pencil draws a cardboard cutout with a hole for the face of a muscular boy. Brock jumps at the opportunity and poses inside the cutout...only to have several more pies come flying at him. Brock abandons the cutout and cleans himself off, only to be hit by a pie tin on one cheek!)

Brock: Running out of ammo, Misty?

Misty(voiceover): Hardly! (We hear a low rumble up ahead; Brock looks up and notes several hundred war planes flying overhead...and that he's standing on the bullseye of a giant target.)

Pikachu(voiceover): Pika chu! (the planes begin dropping pies on the ground. Brock tries to flee the pie bombs, making the pie bombs that missed spell "The End" on the ground)

(Anabel chuckles as Misty draws the last scene)

Anabel: Pie bombs...that would make for quite a mess! (laughs)

Misty: That's Pikachu's idea of payback for you... (Pikachu follows Anabel onstage, where Ash is watching Brock and the band tune up)

Ash: And now, a world premiere song from Brock and the band...

(music begins)

Brock: Listening to my heart, what is it that makes it run and fly about?
Every time, on my touch, a passionate flame, come and see how it burns! I feel so happy!
Happy for this point in time!

I can't stop singing, the party's begun! I can't stop dancing, the party's begun!
I can't go back!
Can't turn around!
There's no way I can ever live without your love!

All the blue, in the sea, I'm swimming right back to you!
Let me please,
Tell you now,
Of my secret, live and learn!

On and on, I will sing until I cannot do so!
This rush in my heart,
It will come to you,
So I sing!

Listening to my heart, whisperings inside of me, what is this?
Do you know? Tell me now!
I am sweating with excitement from head to toe, you know the rush!
Surely you know how I feel!

Why are you standing, looking? Why do you wait?
If you just stand there, I'll keep passing you by!
You won't go foward!
You won't say no!
Let's get close tonight, and stay together!

The secret of the sea and all of its glittering pearls!
Let me please,
Tell you now,
Of my dream and promise!

My love, it goes on in an unending circle!
Let me give my heart!
I tell you the truth!
I love you!

[dance break/guitar solo. Ash, Anabel, and the girls are seen grooving to the song]

Brock: I can't stop running, my love has begun! Oh, how I love you, it isn't a lie!
My gaze is fixed!
I won't let go!
From this moment on, I won't be alone!

My secret that extends down below the deepest sea!
Let me please,
Tell you now,
I give my love to you!

My love, it goes on in an unending circle!
Let me give my heart!
My excitement builds!
I love you!

My secret that extends down below the deepest sea!
Let me please,
Tell you now,
I give my love to you!

My love, it goes on in an unending circle!
Let me give my heart!
I will always sing!
I love you! (applause as Brock and band bow)

Pikachu: Pika!

Anabel: Encore! (Anabel continues clapping as Pikachu darts to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Battle Tower of Terror", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Anabel on stage)

Ash: Well, we're about out of time...

Pikachu: Pika pi, Chupichu...

(an "Aww..." goes up from the crowd as Pikachu and Anabel hug)

Anabel: I had a wonderful time this evening...

Ash: Me too...see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #060: Presto Water-o!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash".

Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Let's make some magic! (we see playing cards come flying out of Brock's sleeve as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we're gonna work a little magic....water magic, that is. (light applause) That being said, please welcome the resident magician of Sootopolis City...Ardan the Great!

(Applause as blue lights come up on Ardan standing atop a stairway. He descends down the stairs and acknowledges the crowd, then claps twice, revealing various pools of water surrounding him. The Super Mario World water theme plays in the background as various water Pokemon surface from the various pools)

(Misty watches from the wings, hearts in her eyes)

(Ardan summons a magic wand from one pocket, then brings up a stream of water from the pool on his left, then brings up another stream of water from the pool on his right, then loops the second stream under the first, creating a watery bow!)

(The brigade of water Pokemon fire sprays of water into the air, which Ardan twists together into streamers! Next, he untwists one of the "streamers", making Milotic appear; to some applause)

(Next, Ardan fires blue sparkles from his wand at the "streamers", making them turn into ice crystals! Milotic gathers up the crystals and deposits them onto a table. Ardan carefully balances one ice crystal on its end and spins it. Once sure that the crystal is spinning on its own, Ardan does the same to a second crystal, then places the second spinning crystal onto the first. He continues to do this until he's created a pyramid of spinning ice crystals. The audience applauds.)

Ardan: Thank you all! It is indeed a pleasure to be with you this evening, Ash...

Ash: The pleasure's all mine... (Pikachu watches the spinning ice crystal pyramid, impressed)

Misty: Wow! That was so cool!

May: I told you that Ardan's amazing!

Ardan: Hold that thought...(produces a reel from thin air) I found this while doing a little house cleaning....

Pikachu: Pika! (takes the reel, threads it in the projector, and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Great Eight Fate!")

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands attempting to recreate Ardan's ice crystal pyramid. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash tries and fails to make the pyramid...ultimately creating a spinning ice crystal Pikachu face!)

(We return to the theater, where Pikachu is still watching the spinning ice crystal pyramid. Misty, meanwhile, notes Pikachu's fascination as she preps the drawing board.)

Misty: That crystal pyramid trick was pretty impressive...

Ardan: It is one of the simplest tricks to learn, yet the hardest to master.

Misty: I bet... (watches Brock attempt to recreate the pyramid with Sugar Crystals)

Ardan: For one thing, the pyramid shouldn't be attempted with anything edible...if one part of the pyramid is eaten--

(We see Munchlax nibbling on a spinning Sugar Crystal, making Brock's masterpiece tumble to the floor with a crash)

Ardan: It falls to the ground, just like that.

Brock: NOW you tell me... (laughter as Brock starts cleaning up his mess. Misty, meanwhile, starts to go to work...)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Brock: All right, pencil, do your worst.

(a pie comes flying at Brock with a SPLUT!)

Ardan(voiceover): Perhaps you'd like a towel? (the pencil draws a towel)

Brock: Yeah... (takes the towel and cleans himself up. As he is doing so, the pencil draws a table in front of him with a pile of ice crystals on it) Say...

(Brock begins to balance the first crystal, but it only spins for a few seconds before falling over.)

Ardan(voiceover): It helps if you balance the crystal with your fingertip before you make it spin.

(Brock decides to follow Ardan's advice...and the crystal spins on its own!)

Brock: Okay, I have one crystal spinning, now what?

(Before Ardan can answer, a flashing WARNING sign appears on the screen)

Misty(voiceover): Warning, if you don't want the magic trick's secret spoiled for you, then close your eyes and cover your ears now!

(We return to the scene of Brock and the spinning crystal)

Ardan(voiceover): Now, take another crystal and touch it to the first, then make the second crystal spin. (Brock repeats Ardan's instructions, making him have two connected spinning crystals.) The energy of the second crystal is what keeps the first crystal spinning.

Brock: Oh, now I know what to do... (proceeds to create a mini crystal pyramid)

Ardan: That's it! (a "ta-da!" stinger plays) You learn quickly, you know that?

(No sooner does Ardan say thet, does Munchlax jar the table leg, sending Brocks pyramid tumbling to the floor with a crash)

Brock: Now I have to do it all over again... (sighs as he observes the mess of ice crystals, some of which spell "The End"

(We join Ash onstage as he watches Brock and the band tune up. Ardan arrives and makes himself comfortable by Ash.

Ash: Now it's our turn to amaze you, Ardan...

(music begins)

Brock: Hear the sounds of the sea, and the colors will change
Look on to the blue sky, reflect and muse on, yourself,
Memories will waken, and live once again!

Across the seven seas, I feel deep in my heart,
A sinking feeling, that someone's out there, she softly cries,
Her heart is in so much pain, that it's crying, too...

"Why don't you save me from my tears?"
"Why can't I rise and accept my true destiny?"
Follow your star, little one, it will guide you into the light!

And it is ever blue, the rolling sea, the water shining brightly with the sun!
The future, I will guard, with all my power, honor, ability!
For all the people that I know and love, and all the places that I want to see!
Glittering, these feelings, they will lead me onto the path...and I follow just the way I am!

You know, falling in love, and then dreaming of you,
I am feeling like I am starting to like me, today,
This feeling, is so strange, does it feel right?

This call, coming from home, oh how I want to go!
I cannot tell you, but someone calls me, this song of peace,
I will always remember it deep in my heart...

I'm not a child any more...
I'm sorry I never told you of this before...
And now the song, here it comes! I will be hiding this in my heart!

And it is every hero that's a friend, a priceless treasure to be protected!
No matter, hard the times, they will be, always right by your side!
For all the people that I know and love, and all the places that I want to see!
Mystery, shining blue, it is the sea that shines brightly, forever with the sky....

And it is ever blue, the rolling sea, the water shining brightly with the sun!
The future, I will guard, with all my power, honor, ability!
For all the people that I know and love, and all the places that I want to see!
Glittering, these feelings, they will lead me onto the path...and I follow just the way I am! (applause as Brock and the band bow)

Ardan: Bravo! A most excellent performance! (Pikachu, meanwhile; hurries to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Eight Ain't Enough!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Ardan onstage)

Ardan: I would dazzle you some more with my wonders, but it appears we've run out of time for the evening.

Ash: That's okay! We'll be back tomorrow at the same time! (applause) See you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise as the credits roll)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we focus on May's first Pokemon... (gestures to Torchic, who performs a backflip for the crowd. May watches, impressed)

May: Wow! Do that again, Torchic!

(Torchic does the backflip again, prompting more applause)

May: You deserve a Pokeblock for that... (May offers Torchic a Pokeblock, but Torchic screams and runs offstage)

Ash: We all know what happened the LAST time you gave her a Pokeblock... (laughter)

Brock: It wasn't a pretty picture, folks. Trust me. (more laughter. Ash rolls his eyes and starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Having a Wailord of a Time!", part 1)

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands trying to make an origami Torchic. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash goes through several sheets of paper, ultimately settling for an origami Pikachu face.)

(Torchic watches as May brings out the mini stage)

May: We're going to do the skit about you, Torchic...

Torchic: Tor?

Brock: Won't that be fun?

(Torchic nods and watches as the others take their places)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see Brock, in breeder's attire, reading a newspaper, all while Torchics frolic about in the background.)

Brock: I can't believe it! (reads the headline to the audience) "Torchic demand at record high"...I bet I'll have trainers coming to me in droves to adopt one of my Torchic pairs...(May and Misty, in the roles of young trainers, walk in the room as Brock is talking.) Well, hello, girls..what can I do for you today?

Misty: We heard that you're the guy to see when it comes to Torchics...

May: Yeah! We'd like to adopt a pair of our own!

Brock: All right, just take a look around until you find the pair you'd like. (May and Misty nod, then wander around the stage for a moment)

(a "1 week later..." card appears)

(Brock continues to read newspaper as Misty and May enter again)

Brock: Hello, girls...what can I do for you?

Misty: We came because one of our friends wanted to try raising Torchics herself....

May: But even though we told her it'd be a lot of work, she still wanted to try it!

Brock: All right, just take a look around until you've found the pair she'd like. (May and Misty nod, then wander around the stage again)

(another "1 week later..." card appears)

(Brock spots the girls as they enter again)

Brock: So how is your friends Torchic doing, girls?

Misty: We're not sure...

Brock: Huh?

May: She said to ask if she's either planting them too close or not watering them enough...she says they're not growing very fast! (laughter as Brock rolls his eyes)

(We see the cast doing various jobs at a construction site. Misty, the foreman, notices Ash fiddling with a flashlight)

Misty: What are you doing? Get back to work!

Ash: But I am working! I'm giving the other workers some light!

Misty: Just get back to work, okay? (leaves the site)

(Several hours later, Misty returns to discover Ash with the flashlight)

Misty: WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU??

Ash: Okay! (sets the flashlight down and picks up a shovel. Just as he does, the other workers scatter)

Misty: What's the matter now?

May: We can't work in the dark! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Torchic giggles as May takes down the stage)

Ash: I think she liked that... (Pikachu tugs on Ash's shoulder) What?

Pikachu: Pika? (offers a reel to Ash)

Ash: Well... (threads the reel in the projector) I don't see why we can't watch that movie you made.... (Torchic hurries before the screen as Ash starts the projector)

Ash: I thought I'd let Pikachu sing for once...Brock will translate for those of you that can't speak Pikanese. (laughter) Ready, Pikachu?

Pikachu: Pika!

Ash: Okay; one, two, three...

[guitar intro]

Pikachu: Pika pi, pi pika chu, pi pi pikachu...

Brock: And when the big day comes, the joy will consume you!

Misty: We're not sure...

Brock: Huh?

May: She said to ask if she's either planting them too close or not watering them enough...she says they're not growing very fast! (laughter as Brock rolls his eyes)

(We see the cast doing various jobs at a construction site. Misty, the foreman, notices Ash fiddling with a flashlight)

Misty: What are you doing? Get back to work!

Ash: But I am working! I'm giving the other workers some light!

Misty: Just get back to work, okay? (leaves the site)

(Several hours later, Misty returns to discover Ash with the flashlight)

Misty: WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU??

Ash: Okay! (sets the flashlight down and picks up a shovel. Just as he does, the other workers scatter)

Misty: What's the matter now?

May: We can't work in the dark! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Torchic giggles as May takes down the stage)

Ash: I think she liked that... (Pikachu tugs on Ash's shoulder) What?

Pikachu: Pika? (offers a reel to Ash)

Ash: Well... (threads the reel in the projector) I don't see why we can't watch that movie you made.... (Torchic hurries before the screen as Ash starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Treasure of Alph")[B][I]

[B][I](We join Ash, Brock, and Pikachu onstage. Ash is tuning an acoustic guitar as Pikachu waits nearby, clutching a microphone.)

Ash: I thought I'd let Pikachu sing for once...Brock will translate for those of you that can't speak Pikanese. (laughter) Ready, Pikachu?

Pikachu: Pika!

Ash: Okay; one, two, three...

[guitar intro]

Pikachu: Pika pi, pi pika chu, pi pi pikachu...

Brock: If you wish, upon a star, your dreams will come true...

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu, pi pikachu pi pikachu?

Brock: Why should you wait for them, when they'll always come back to you?

Pikachu: Pika chu, pi pika chu pika pikachu...

Brock: Dream big, trust in yourself, and you will go far...

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu, pi pika pikachu!

Brock: And when the big day comes, the joy will consume you!

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu,

Brock: A journey has begun,

Pikachu: pi pika chu pika pika pikachu,

Brock: To search and find the meaning of true love...

Pikachu: Pika chu,

Brock: All the stars,

Pikachu: Pika chu,

Brock: In the sky,

Pikachu: Pika pika chu!

Brock: Guide me on my way!

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu...

Brock: This is my wish for you...

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu!

Brock: I cannot live for now!

Pikachu: Pi pika pika chu...

Brock: I'm living for my dream!

Pikachu: Pika pika chu pi pika pika chu, pikachupi!

Brock: Show me now, that your love won't fade away! So don't rush it!

Pikachu: Pi, pika pi pikachu, pi pika pi!

Brock: And so, until my dream day comes, I'll think of you...

Pikachu: Pi pikachupi pika pi chu?

Brock: What lies ahead and after a dream? (applause as Ash, Brock, and Pikachu bow)

May: Bravo, Pikachu!

Torchic: Torchic! (hops to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Having a Wailord of a Time!", part 2)

(We join Ash and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Nice song earlier, Pikachu! (applause as Pikachu bows again)

May: He did great!

Ash: I would let him sing some more, but we're out of time...

Pikachu: Chaa...

Ash: But we'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. Pikachu scats "On Our Way" as the credits roll)

ANP #62: Dragonite Warrior



(We see a still of a wall with paint running down it, with the words "Watching Paint Dry" plastered across it)

Male announcer: "The Ash and Pikachu Show" will not be seen at this time...in its place we present to you the following program...

(a record scrape is heard as Ash's head rips through the D in Dry)

Ash: You think we'd REALLY bore you with a show like that? (tears the gag pre-empt to shreds, revealing a black screen underneath it) Now, let's try this again...

(Misty's hands appear in the scene holding a clapboard)

Misty(voiceover) "The Ash and Pikachu Show" episode 62, take two...and, action! (claps the clapboard)

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: About that pre-empt earlier...April Fool! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Wild applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Before we get started, let me just say that I will have a word with the writer that created that gag pre-empt! (laughter) Anyway, tonight's show is dedicated to a master of dragon Pokemon...and a fighter for Pokemon everywhere! So join me in welcoming Lance to the stage. (leads the applause as Lance comes onstage and shakes Ash's hand.)

Lance: Thank you so much for allowing me to come tonight...I was a bit worried when I saw the gag pre-empt...

Ash: Don't worry, that writer will get a little talking to after the show. (more laughter)
Lance: Good...

Ash: Now, why don't we tell the audience about the role you played in the whole Groudon and Kyorge mess? (some cheers and applause at this, but Pikachu darts behind Lance's chair in fear.)

Lance: Huh? (notices Pikachu) Look at that...the little guy's scared.

Ash: Maybe he doesn't want to relive the horror of becoming a Fierce Deity again.

Brock: I'll handle this... (puts his shades back on and addresses the audience) Tonight's cartoon is a little scarier than usual...so I'd advise those of you with small children and those with weak constitutions to leave the theater for this performance. (waits a moment as shuffling is heard in the audience)

Lance: Good thinking, Brock...

Ash: Yeah, we don't want to lose an audience because of people complaining that tonight was too scary. (Lance threads a reel in the projector)

Brock: Well, if somebody does complain, I can at least say they were warned. (smiles as Lance starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Gaining Groudon")

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands gripping the reins of a Dragonite as more Dragonites with riders circle around him in the sky, and Groudon and Kyorge battle in the sea below. A female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash leads his Dragonite into a loop. The criss-crossing Dragonites create a Pikachu face in the sky.)

(We rejoin Ash, Lance, Misty, and Pikachu in the theater. Pikachu is quivering with fear under a blanket)

Ash: There, there...it's over... (consoles Pikachu as the projector rewinds)

Lance: I can't blame him for being afraid--those that fall victim to the Fierce Deities trapped in the Blue and Red Orbs often have fear of facing the ordeal again even if it's depicted in print or on film.

Brock: If Ash had became a Fierce Deity that day, we wouldn't even be doing this show! (light laughter)

Misty: So be glad you weren't the Deity!...which reminds me...how does the legend of Groudon and Kyorge go again? I was thinking of drawing it in comic form...

Lance: Here, I'll tell you... (watches Misty begin to draw...)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen is seen, simulating a blank piece of paper)

Lance(voiceover): Okay...the legend of Groudon and Kyorge... (the text is drawn on the screen in a manner similar to the font used in the Zelda games) The story goes that long ago, the ancient deity of the earth (the pencil draws a girl in a red gown decorated with rose petals and vines) and the ancient deity of the sea (the pencil draws a mermaid-like creature) once argued over which of them was the greatest.

(the two deites begin to argue)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, then what? (the pencil draws a scene split between a rocky volcanic area and the sea)

Lance(voiceover): Their argument grew so fierce, they created Groudon... (the pencil draws Groudon in the rocky volcanic half of the picture) and Kyorge (the pencil draws Kyorge in the sea half of the picture) and staged a fierce battle. (Groudon and Kyorge begin to battle, causing havoc on the paper.) The battle raged on for days and days, nearly destroying the world in the process.

(the pencil draws Rayquaza overhead)

Lance(voiceover): Finally, the sky dragon, Rayquaza; decided he had had enough of the two deities' battle. (Rayquaza flies down into the raging battle) He sent Groudon and Kyorge into eternal sleep... (Rayquaza freezes Groudon in Mt. Chimney, and Kyorge in the Cave of Origin) and punished the two deities by imprisoning them inside mystical orbs. (We see the two deities being enclosed in the Blue and Red Orbs)

Misty(voiceover): And then?

Lance(voiceover): The legend cautions that whoever touches the orbs will become the Fierce Deities, and Groudon and Kyorge will battle once more. (we see "The End" floating above the two orbs)

(May watches as Misty draws the last scene)

May: Pikachu and Archie became the Deities, but Ash's love was enough to cast out the Deity of the Earth inside Pikachu! (applause)

Brock: And I have just the song for the occassion! (motions to the band, grabs his guitar, and tunes up)

(music begins. Clips from "Gaining Groudon" and "The Scuffle of Legend" flash on a screen as the song is performed)

Brock: Oh the night, is so dark and filled with fear...
I'm all alone, can my love be nowhere near?
All alone, is this just a frightful dream?
But I know, we must destroy their evil scheme!

We are hardly crushed and pushed against the wall,
But I know with our love, we can defeat them all!
We must save the world, that's what we have to do--right away!

And I know what I must do!
Before they tear our hearts in two!
We must fight for, the love that we have...
That is what we have to do!
And I know what I must do!
Before they tear our hearts in two!
Heroes, unite!
Awaken the Guardian of Love!

I don't know, if your past is pure and true...
Trust in me, and I'll also trust in you...
I will come, and I'll stay right by your side...
Look inside, your pure heart has nothing to hide!

My friend, I'll come with you, and I will do my part,
For the one you love best, the one inside your heart!
If you believe you can, your faith and love becomes energy!

And I'll do just what I must!
Just to protect our sacred trust!
We will aim high, in all that we do...
But, that you already knew!
And I'll do just what I must!
Just to protect our sacred trust!
Heroes, unite!
I am the Guardian of Love!

And I know what I must do!
Before they tear our hearts in two!
We must fight for, the love that we have...
That is what we have to do!
And I know what I must do!
Before they tear our hearts in two!
Heroes, unite!
Awaken the Guardian of Love! (wild applause as Brock and the band bow)

May: Bravo!

Lance: A most fitting song, if I say so myself! (Ash, meanwhile, tiptoes over to the projector and starts it)

CARTOON-"The Scuffle of Legends")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Lance onstage)

Pikachu: Pika... (holds his blanket close)

Ash: Don't worry, the show's almost over...

Lance: Well...let me at least thank you again for making my stay here possible.

Ash: My pleasure... (applause) See ya next time! (Ash and Lance wave goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #63: Schoolhouse Rock-types!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Conjunction Junction, what's your function? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's guest should be familar to those of you that hail from Rustboro City...(various cheers come from the audience) Rock type user extrodinaire and a popular teacher at Houen's Pokemon Academy...(more cheers) But whatever you do, do NOT call her "Roxie"! Please welcome the lovely Roxanne to the stage!

(cheers and applause as Roxanne walks onstage and waves to the crowd)

Roxanne: Thank you, Ash...and hi to all my students that might be watching!

Brock(offstage): Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, get your adverbs here.... (Brock appears onstage singing) Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, got some adverbs here....Come on down to Lolly's, get the adverbs here... (laughter as Roxanne blushes)

Roxanne: Please, Brock; I appriciate the song, but not now...

Brock: So? These little jingles could help your pupils learn lots of things! Such as my personal favorite... (he sings again) Well, every person you can know....

Misty: Like Ash, Pikachu, Roxanne!

Brock: And every place that you can go...

Misty: Like the theater, the city, or a town!

Brock: And anything that you can show...

Misty: Like the stage, a pencil, or this song!

Brock: You know they're nouns - you know they're nouns... (By this time, Ash has his face in his hands, embarrassed.)

Ash: Maybe if we show a cartoon, he'll stop?

Roxanne: Good idea! (threads reel in the projector as Brock starts another song)

Brock: Conjunction Junction, what's your function?.... (Roxanne starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Gonna Rule the School!")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands at a desk as Roxanne writes on a chalkboard. A female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as we look in Ash's notebook--and spot a sketch of a Pikachu face in the margin.)

(We return to the theater to see Roxanne observing Misty at the drawing board. She watches, bemused, as a Geodude drawing comes alive for a few moments, then fades away)

Roxanne: Interesting...I've never seen magical pencils before.

Misty: They're custom made just for me! (continues drawing)

(Meanwhile, in another part of the backstage area, Pikachu is "teaching" a group of Pichus about show biz. The Pichus sit at tiny desks in three rows, with four desks apiece. Pikachu, wearing a mini graduate's hat, stands before the chalkboard.)

Pikachu: Pika pi...pi pikachu pika pika. (the Pichus snap to attention)
Pikachu: pi pi pikachu. (Pikachu writes "Lesson 1: How to be Funny" on the chalkboard) Pika pika pichu pi pika pikachu. Pika, Pikapi pika chu... (Pikachu draws a stick figure of Ash telling a joke to an audience on the chalkboard)

Ash drawing: Why did the Pikachu cross the road?

(Nincadas chirp)

Ash drawing: To get to the apple tree on the other side!

(Nincadas chirp and Lotads call)

Pikachu: Pika chu, Pikapi chu pika pika chu...(to the Pichus) pika pika chu?

Pichu: Pi chu?

Pikachu: Pikachu pi pi pika... (erases the Ash drawing's punchline and writes in a different one. Roxanne watches all this from across the hall.)

Roxanne: Pikachu makes a natural teacher...in fact, Brock once told me he'd like to try being a teacher...

Misty: Let's see if he's up to the challenge... (goes to work...)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Roxanne(voiceover): No...he needs something more...teacher-like.

(The pencil draws a graduate's cap and gown onto Brock)

Misty(voiceover): How's that?

Roxanne(voiceover): Perfect! (The pencil proceeds to draw a classroom background, complete with a desk and chalkboard)

Brock: Now I need a class...

(the pencil draws various children before the chalkboard)

(The bell rings as Brock writes "TODAY" on the chalkboard)

Brock: Today, class; we're going to talk about type matchups.

(murmurs go through the classroom as Brock consults a diagram of the type chart)

Brock: We all know what a type is when it concerns Pokemon, right?

(Brock is cut off by an air horn)

Brock: Okay, who sounded the air horn? (laughter) As I was saying, we all know what a type is concerning Pokemon, right?

Children: Yes...

Brock: Refer to Figure A... (reaches for his pointer and tries to pick it up, but it doesn't budge. Some other children snicker as they hide some super glue.)

(Finally, Brock gives up on the pointer, and reaches for the chalk, but he feels it begin to squirm! The class laughs as Brock realizes he's about to write with a snoozing Wurmple.)

Brock: You do realize that certain students may get a visit from Mr. Detention Slip here... (brandishes some detention slips, quieting the snickers in the classroom)

Roxanne(voiceover): Detentions work every time...

Misty(voiceover): And now, the grand finale...

(In the comic's world, Brock starts towards the teacher's desk and is about to sit down...when the chair gives way, sending him falling to the floor! The class howls with laughter)

Brock: How Roxanne does this, I'll never know. (we notice that the HOMEWORK portion of the board reads "The End")

(Roxanne laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

Roxanne: How cute... (takes the paper from Misty and returns to the stage, where Brock is now playing his guitar and singing "Conjunction Junction" for the ten milionth time.) Ahem...

Brock: Huh?

Roxanne: A present... (gives the comic to Brock)

Brock: Wow... (sets his guitar aside, takes the comics, and reads it. He then starts to giggle, then laugh, and soon he's laughing so hard he can barely breathe)

Ash(over Brock's laughing): We're about out of time tonight...

Roxanne: And I'm glad Brock likes his present. (gestures to the sniffling Brock, we see he's crying from laughing so hard, yet he keeps laughing.
Misty: Gee, he likes that?

Ash: I'd say so, even though you tend to pick on him a lot in your comics...but we'll see you next time!

Roxanne: See you tomorrow! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll. When all the credits run, the curtain reopens to see Brock finally recovering from laughing.)

Brock: Wait...what was so funny, anyway? (the scene fades out over a final hit of music)

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: This match's winner is... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we take a look of the competitive side of battle...to be more precise, those that are on the circuit of Pokemon Stadium! (applause)

(Pikachu appears in cheerleader attire)

Pikachu: Pika chu! (an "Aww" goes up from the crowd as Pikachu waves a pair of fans around. Misty looks out from the wings and giggles)

Misty: He's so silly, cheering like that. (continues watching Pikachu's routine)

Ash: In fact, I remember all those times he's cheered... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-Pikachu cheer montage)

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands waving as he runs out of a tunnel into an arena filled with people. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash approaches the Sapphire side of the Poke Ball arena, while a shadowed opponent appears on the Ruby side. As the two stare each other down, a flipcard image of a Pikachu face appears in the stands)

(We join Misty and Pikachu backstage--Pikachu is still waving his fans around as Misty prepares the drawing board. May notes this as she watches Misty prepare.)

May: Quite the cheerleader, isn't he?

Misty: If I remember right, didn't he cheer for you once?

May: Yeah! For a few contests!

Misty: Let's see how he fares cheering on Brock in the Stadium... (starts to draw, but May interrupts her)

May: I've never battled in a Stadium before...what's it like?

Misty: Watch and see... (goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)
Brock: All right, pencil...what's your pleasure?
(A pie appears out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)
Brock: Besides that...(cleans the pie off)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, let's draw the Stadium...(the pencil draws Brock standing on the Ruby side of the arena)

May(voiceover): I'll draw his opponent! (the pencil draws a shadowed opponent on the Sapphire side)

Misty(voiceover): In Stadium matches, you can pick three of your Pokemon to battle...but you won't know which three your opponent has until you get out there!

(Brock summons Crobat, but his opponent summons a Manetric. Brock quickly recalls Crobat and summons Onix instead. The Manetric backs away, afraid of Onix)

May(voiceover): I'd be afraid too if I had a thirty foot tall rock snake staring me down...

(The Onix performs a Magnitude attack, which is enough to faint the Manetric.

Brock: That was easy... (waves to the crowd as some flipcards in the stands spell "The End"

(Pikachu continues to cheer as Misty draws the last scene. May walks onstage, where Brock and the band are tuning up.)

May: Ready to sing, Maestro?

Brock: Almost...(tunes guitar some more) Okay! (the band snaps to attention as Brock snaps to count them off) One! Two! One, two, three, four!

[guitar intro]

Brock: These days you've crossed the line,
Who cares 'bout rules you have in mind-
I'm gonna break out of this world
And fly high to the skies!

You can never forgive anything I do
Don't you see I wanna be free too
Us together is nothing you need
Let's just crash this party!

Be always there strong and fierce
For I can only think of you
Won't believe there's an end-
For the distance let's find a true tomorrow!

Break Down! Blasting what I love: music!
Heightening tension, send it all to outer space!
Engine maxxed out, gonna jump on this jet stream
Every bit of anger and sorrow- get it all out of my life!

[Hey boy! Your sad story is tiring me out
I don't need it- you've gotta be like low-level?]

Brock: Let's go! Until I'm about to explode-
Until I can't hear a word, gonna cut through to your heart
Let's go! I'm maxxed out- You can never fight me-
Cuz I'll never lose! Cuz I just want to be yours! (applause as Brock and the band bow. Pikachu dances over to the projector and starts it, waving his fans all the while)

(CARTOON-"The Ultimate Test!")

(We join Ash and Pikachu onstage. Pikachu is breathing hard)

Ash: Well, you've been dancing around a lot, of course you're tired!

Pikachu: Pi, pi, chu...(slumps to the floor, exhausted)

Ash: We're out of time for tonight, so see you next time! (Pikachu just grunts from his position on the floor as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Who knew that something with phenomenal cosmic power lived in such an itty bitty living space? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd. We notice a TV nearby where Ash is standing)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight!

(Ash is cut off by Brock scatting the Mario theme as he comes onstage carrying an NES.)

Ash: Brock, please, not while I'm trying to do the show...

Brock: Relax, I don't need you to play, anyway. (continues scatting the Mario theme as he finishes hooking up the NES, then returns backstage. He returns a few moments later with a basket full of games, selects one, and carefully inserts it inside. The Zelda theme blares into the theater.)

Ash: AHEM!!! (Brock fumbles for the remote and turns the volume down. We hear various Zelda noises in the background as Ash continues talking.) Anyway, tonight's show--

Brock(as his Link spins and turns gray, then disappears with a 'plink!'): AUGH! (grumbles as "GAME OVER" appears on the screen)

Ash: ::sigh:: Tonight's show--

Brock: Mucha fracha Ihatetheseguys....(stares in disbelief as "GAME OVER" appears on the screen again.)

Ash: Whatever that means... (is about to start his intro again when Misty appears carrying a small skinny cartridge-like device with V-shaped connectors and a picture of a red genie on the "cartridge part) What's that?

Misty: The Game Genie for the NES...

Brock: I could use some help here... (removes the game, connects the Game Genie to it, and puts it back in. No sooner does Brock turn the system back on, does he come face to face with the genie on the "cartridge", except that it is wearing an outfit reminiscent of an NES controller.) Gah! Who're you?

Game Genie: I am the Game Genie, mighty player. What is your command?

Brock: Hmm... (studies the three blank lines before him.) Three wishes, right?

Game Genie: Depends on how powerful your wish is....if your wish takes up one line of my memory, then yes, you do get three wishes, but the more powerful the wish, the more lines it takes.

Brock: I see...(thinks of a wish as he watches the Link sprite on the screen) I wish that Link didn't take damage at all!

(The Game Genie waves his hands, making the letters "AVVLAUSZ" appear on one line)

Game Genie: Done! Our hero is invincible! (the Zelda "got item" fanfare plays)

Misty: What's all that gibberish on the line, Mr. Game Genie?

Game Genie: That's the code for your friend's wish...which I will remember until you turn the game off. If you want to start the game again, but still want me to remember your wishes, simply reset the console. (to Brock) Is there anything else you desire to aid Link with, player?

Brock: Yeah...I wish I had infinite Rupees... (The Genie creates the letters "SZVXASVK" on the next line) and infinite bombs! (the letters SZNZVOVK appear on the third line) Now I'm set! (starts the game again. Misty tiptoes to the projector.)

Misty: While he's playing, let's watch this... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Sing For The Unicorn")

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands fiddling with a Game Boy. The femle announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash inserts Pokemon Yellow in the Game Boy and turns it on, where we see the Pikachu face on the title screen.)

(The Game Genie watches as Misty inserts "Final Fantasy" into the NES)

Game Genie: Do you want tou use your wishes now?

Misty: How about...infinite gold?

Game Genie: All right, but that will be the only wish I'll remember...(Misty nods and begins the game)

(Suddenly, we heard an acoustic guitar playing the Chocobo theme offscreen, piquing the Genie's interest)

Game Genie: Hmm, who's playing that song?

Misty: That would be Brock... (gestures to Brock, who's playing his guitar)

Brock(singing to the tune of the Chocobo theme): Final Fantasy is an RPG,
The only one that I need,
It's the RPG for me!

Ash: Uh Brock...

Brock: Final Fantasy is all that I play!
All other games are lame,
It puts them all to shame!

Ash: Hey!

Brock: I only play games that are popular!
I only buy the games the magazines tell me to buy!
That way I know I get good games for sure!
I may have a shallow mind,
But I'll kick back and unwind!

Misty: Now I've heard everything... (continues playing)

Brock: Final Fantasy; it consumes my life...
And that is probably why
I'll never have a wife....
Final Fantasy has awesome music!
And that is probably why it
Always gets remixed...

I always buy the soundtrack to each game!
Oh it is the only thing that I will listen to,
Oh sure one day it may drive me insane,
You may think that I'm a fool,
Well I'm here to say "I just rule!"

Final Fantasy on the NES,
With music by Nobuo
And graphics by Wong Chu
We're up to Final Fantasy number ten....
Must save the world again
Right here from my own den

Hopefully I'll get through the game just fine
I don't know why I continue to play each game
They'll be making these 'til the end of time
Oh I guess that I will pay
For these new games 'til Doomsday...
Doo-doo-doo-doo...

Game Genie: ::laughs:: Great song! (Brock continues to sing as Ash starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Stars in Their Eyes")

(Misty waves goodbye to the Game Genie as she turns the NES off)

Misty: Bye, Game Genie! See ya later!

Ash: We're out of time...(we still hear Brock singing his Final Fantasy song), and somebody make him stop...

(the curtain closes. Brock continues to sing as the credits roll)

ANP #66: Savin' The World!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Memo to self: No comics before bedtime. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight...

(Ash is cut off by some laughter nearby. He shakes it off as his imagination before continuing.)

Ash: Anyway, tonight...

(Ash is cut off by laughter again. he looks and notices Brock in the egg chair, laughing over a comic book)

Ash: Comics? Now?

Brock: I just got it in the mail...World Saviors #3...I've been (yawn) waiting for this episode...(falls asleep before he can complete the sentence. The scene begins to swirl as Brock falls asleep. Just then, Misty pops up in the mass of swirling colors with a clapboard.)

Misty: Brock's dream sequence, take 1! (claps the clapboard)

(When the scene returns to normal, we see Brock asleep...in the middle of the main street of a city in the World Saviors universe. He wakes up to see 5 teenagers approaching him.)

Whit: Man... I shoulda went back ta sleep.

Ralanda: Must you always be lazy?

Whit: Yeah, why? Is it bad?

Andrew: Whit, you know you won't get anywhere if you keep being a lazy bum.

(They walk past Brock, who is shocked that they're actually 'real')

Brock(thinking): I can't believe my eyes....

Rogan: He's right ya know. I mean if I was lazy I wouldn't have ever gotten my fire element.

Whit: (groans) Can't we talk about somethin else?

(Brock throws out of the blanket, climbs from the chair, darts past them and stands in their way)

Brock: (gently grabs Ralanda's hand and stares at her deeply)

Ralanda: Oh, wow. You made my day

Brock: I bet I can make even more just for the two of us, my lovely one!

Ralanda: Uh... Sorry, I'm really not looking for a boyfriend right now and uh... aren't you taking things a little too fast? And how do you know my name?

Brock: Ummm, ::sniff:: I'm your biggest fan? (the scene begins to swirl...)

(We return to the theater to see Brock holding a broom and saying "I'm your biggest fan." He holds the broom close as May walks by.)

May: You're the biggest fan of a broom?

Brock: Huh? (glances around him to see that he's backstage holding a broom, with the girls looking at him as if he's nuts.) That dream seemed so real...(sets the broom aside and returns to the chair, only to see Ash sitting in it watching cartoons.) Well, if I can't use the chair...I can always snooze on the floor. (grabs his blanket and lies down as the scene swirls again)

(Brock wakes up in the flashback just in time to see Andrew and Rogan go inside a mansion. He opts to follow them inside, where he finds them staring down an older girl in a large empty basement with some doctors and some androids in another room on the left side.)

Andrew: Give back the doctors or else!

Isabel: Or else what? You two think you can beat me?

Rogan: We know we can!

(A fight starts (complete with a showdown tune reminiscent of a Western movie). Isabel turns the room completely into steel and begins creating and launching boulders from her hands. Rogan destroys most of the boulders with fireballs, while Andrew blasts the remaining ones with beams of darkness.)

Isabel: Not bad, but can you keep it up?

(She launches more boulders at them. While Rogan begins to destory the giant rocks with more fireballs, Andrew attacks Isabel directly with his sword. She manages to dodge the attacks and strike back with her fists.)

Isabel: Where the heck is that music coming from?

Andrew: (stops fighting) Huh?

Rogan: (after dodging a boulder) What?

(The three turn to see Brock playing a harmonica, his guitar, and a bass drum all at the same time)

Brock: What? I'm just providing the background music for your duel here.... (the comic's characters roll their eyes as the flashback swirls)

(We return to see Brock seated on the floor mumbling his earlier quip to himself, his instruments lying nearby. Ash notes this as he gets up from the chair.)

Brock(in his sleep): I'm only providing the music...

Ash: What music?

Brock(groggily): Wanna hear a song? (yawns and falls asleep again as the scene swirls)

(everything turns black, then slowly Brock, Rogan, and Andrew notice themselves standing in a yellow grassy field and Isabel was nowhere to be found.)

Rogan: Huh...? what's happening now?! What happened to the mansion and that girl? Is this another part of her powers?

Andrew: Not likely, since when could someone with a land element change the color of grass and sky?

Brock: This is a dream, this is a dream, this is a dream... (he takes his guitar and starts a song)

(Suddenly, Whit, Darryl, and Ralanda magically drop out from the sky. All three of them land on Rogan.)

Rogan: Ow! What the?!

Darryl: Hey... Weren't we just in the hospital? What are we doing outside? Ralanda, did you teleport us out there?

Ralanda: uh-uh, it wasn't me. I didn't use any of my psychic powers.

Brock(singing): I'm standing all alone, staring out the window...
I kneel down and rest my chin upon my hands...

Whit: Why's the grass yellow and the sky green?

Rogan: Why are the three of you still on top of me? Get off!

Whit, Ralanda, and Darryl: Oh, sorry!

(The three quickly get off of Rogan's back. Darryl helps Rogan to his feet.)

Whit: Ya know... Somethin ain't right here, I feel like I ain't even real... Like I'm some kinda puppet or action figure...

Brock(still singing): I tend to sigh, and sigh a lot
As long as I can't say this: I love you!

(Ralanda, Andrew, Rogan, Brock, and Darryl turn to him)

Ralanda: What do you mean by that?

???: Welcome!

(Everyone turns to the voice to see a tall, long red haired man wearing a white jacket and black jeans. Brock just continues his song as if nothing's happening)

Whit: Who the heck is you?

???: Your master!

(The man throws a Poke Ball at Whit, but before it can hit, Darryl jumps in the way. The Poke Ball hits Darryl, opens up, and sucks him in.)

Whit, Andrew, Rogan, and Ralanda: DARRYL!

(Whit takes out his sword and slashes at the Poke Ball, but his sword doesn't leave a single scratch. It's as if the Poke Ball can't be damaged. Brock stops his song to see what's going on.)

??? (Throwing down a Poke Ball): Go, Flareon!

(The Poke Ball opens and releases... Flareon.)

Rogan: What's that thing?

Brock: A Flareon...

Whit: The heck's a Flareon?

Brock: A Pokemon.

Ralanda: A what...?

(Flareon launches a flamethrower attack at the group. Rogan quickly steps in front of everyone and activates his fire aura, absorbing the flames from the fire-type Pokemon. Brock just resumes his song)

Brock(singing): Someday, I will wish to look into your eyes!
You will smile, your eyes reflecting the picture deep in my heart!

??? (stares at Rogan with interest): Hmm... Are you a Pokemon?

(The man takes out a Pokedex from his pocket and points it at Rogan, who flinches, thinking it was some kind of weapon.

Pokedex: Searching.... still searching... Rogan, the humanoid flame cat Pokemon. Enjoys playing with fire and eating anything it can get its hands on. It is destined to be caught in this battle.

??? (closes pokedex and puts it away): Hmm... Very amusing. Flareon, quick attack!

(Flareon dashes at Rogan with incredible speed and Rogan does the same. The two meet in a hand on collison! Flareon manages to knock Rogan back a few feet but he stays on his feet. He begins to blast Flareon with several fireballs but none seem to do too much damage. Brock continues his song as the scene swirls.)

(We return to the theater to see Brock playing his guitar and singing the song in his dream.)

Brock: That's right, I'm dreaming!
And I will keep dreaming! I wait for you!
Even in the middle of my dream, I think of you...

Ash: So much for the show tonight....

Pikachu: Pika... (the curtain closes. Brock continues his song in the background as the credits roll.)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: When I say Bonsly's a handful, I'm not kidding! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show is dedicated to...

(we hear some chattering as Brock appears, cradling Bonsly in his arms. The girls follow, oggling over the chattering Bonsly)

Misty: So cute! (Misty has hearts in her eyes)

May: Don't let that cute facade fool you, Misty...he keeps Brock on his toes!

(Bonsly looks out on the audience, amazed)

Brock: See all those people out there? They came to see you.

(Flattered by this, Bonsly waves a vine at the audience, making some "Aww"s go up from the crowd.)

Ash: As I was saying, tonight's show is all about this little guy. (gestures to Bonsly, to some applause)

Brock: Hear that? All the people are clapping and going "Yay!" just for you! (Bonsly smiles, then balances on a vine, making the audience clap again.)

May: I think we have the beginnings of a new star. (tiptoes to the projector as Bonsly continues doing silly antics for the crowd)

(CARTOON-"A Tree Grows in Kanto", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands putting the finishing touches on a crib. Brock stands nearby with Bonsly in his arms, watching as Ash spreads out the covers. Brock says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as he sets Bonsly in the crib. As we look on Bonsly sleeping, one of the toys is a Pikachu plushie.)

(We return to the scene to see Bonsly squalling away as Brock looks for something backstage for a toy.)

Brock: I know, little guy, I'm getting you something... (spots one of Misty's pencils lying on the floor) Say...(to Bonsly) Didja know this pencil is special?

(Bonsly sniffles a little as he trudges closer to a pad of paper lying nearby where Brock is sitting)

Brock: Whatever this pencil draws, it comes alive! (he draws a quick sketch of an ice cream cone and gives it to Bonsly. Bonsly watches as Brock continues drawing, licking the ice cream all the while.

(a blank screen appears)

(a green splotch with black bits comes falling on the paper)

Brock(voiceover): Careful with the ice cream, Bonsly. (the pencil draws a wet rag, which mops up the stain, leaving us with a blank piece of paper again) Okay...what should we draw?

(The pencil draws a stick figure Brock.)

Brock: Very nice... (erases the drawing) Let's draw...a Meowth. (the pencil draws a Meowth)

(Bonsly giggles as he sketches a crude looking fiddle in the Meowth's paws.)

Meowth: How do ya expect me to play dis ting? It doesn't even remotely look like a fiddle!

Brock(voiceover): I'll fix that! (draws a nicer looking fiddle in Meowth's paws)

Meowth: Now dat's more like it! (he starts a lively reel)

(inspired by this, Bonsly draws a Pikachu)

Brock(voiceover): I know the perfect instrument for him to play... (draws a whistle in the Pikachu's paws. The Pikachu joins in the song. Bonsly adds in a drawing of a Charmander, which Brock gives a guitar to. For the finishing touches, Bonsly adds in various dancing Pokemon, which dance for a moment before the scene fades out)

(Brock finishes the drawing of the Pokemon band before he notices Bonsly tearing up again.)

May: I think if you sing something, he'll calm down.

Brock: Good idea! (cradles Bonsly in his arms)

(music begins)

Brock: Sunshine rises, tomorrow comes...
I want to meet a brand new me...

Give me the strength, and the courage,
Even if it's just only a gram.

As I am walking here, on my way home,
I hum a song so I don't feel alone....

I will be honest and tell you the truth,
This is beautiful, I want to cry...

For some reason, I cannot say it...
After the quarell's done....I'm so sorry...

Riding along the breeze, strolling so casually...
I want to tell you now,
Of this new day...

(Bonsly is sleeping as Brock returns onstage. He sets Bonsly down long enough to start the projector, then continues holding Bonsly in his arms.)

(CARTOON-"A Tree Grows in Kanto", part 2)

(We join Ash, Brock, Pikachu, and Bonsly onstage)

Ash: Well, we're out of time, and this little guy needs to--

Brock: Sh!

Ash(whispering): Sorry. See ya next time! (waves quickly. Pikachu also waves as the curtain closes. A very quiet version of "On Our Way" plays as the credits roll)

ANP #68: Adventures on Alto Mare


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)
Brock: Which one's Latios and which one's Latias? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)
(Applause as Ash appears onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we feature two special Pokemon from the island of Alto Mare...the Lati twins! (applause)

(The applause intensifies as Latias apprears onstage. She pauses for a few seconds and closes her eyes, causing her to be shrouded in smoke. When the smoke clears, a young girl stands in her place.)

Ash: Bianca...

Bianca: I just wanted to appear as something that would fit onstage...my normal form is much too large for this stage!

(Ash looks up to see a few lights dangling above him)

Ash: So I gathered... (Misty walks onstage, confused)

Misty: What happened?

Ash: When I announced Latias, she was in her usual form, which damaged some of the lights. (goes to get a ladder)

Misty: Don't worry Bianca...we can watch this while the crew fixes the lights...(starts towards the projector with a reel)

Bianca: I'd love to! (settles before the screen as Misty threads the reel in the projector)

Ash: Hopefully we can get the lights fixed before Brock has to perform...

Bianca: Huh?

Misty: Brock's our music man, and usually has a song to sing for each show....but he can't sing if no one can see him!

Bianca: Oh... (turns towards the screen as Misty starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Pokemon Heroes", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands hanging on to a line as he skis behind a boat, winding his way through the canals of Alto Mare The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Latias flies overhead. As we look in the water, one of the waves makes a Pikachu face in the water)

(We join Misty and Bianca backstage as Misty preps the drawing board. Bianca is interested in the pencils.)

Bianca: Interesting pencil... (draws a Latios, which circles around her for a few seconds before fading away...) Wow!

Misty: They're magical pencils, so that whatever they draw comes alive!

Bianca: Cool!

Misty: I like to show the viewers at home a living comic every show, so I'll draw one with Ash in it just for you.

Bianca: Sounds great! (pulls up a chair as Misty goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Ash is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, what should we make Ash do?

Bianca(voiceover): Oh...draw him in a sparkly shirt and checkered jacket! (the pencil obliges and draws a fake white rose in the right pocket) And sparkly pants! (the pencil obliges) And long silvery hair! (Ash's hair grows and turns the aforemention color)

Misty(voiceover): You know, he looks just like a rock star! I'll draw a director... (draws a brown haired girl) and her assistant (draws Max) and see what happens... (draws a stage...)

Rubina: This is what you have to sing before the Rock n' Roll Forever CD is described, okay? The chords are there too.

Ash: Got it!

(We blip to the scene of a stage, where Ash, as Kochou, stands at the center before a mic, a red electric guitar in hand. The crew hurries to position)

Rubina: We're on in 3, 2, 1!

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 1! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat, but his notes are sounding a little off)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every place!
Rockin and a reelin,
Reelin and rockin,
Shakin up the human race!
Rubina: Cut! Your guitar's out of tune!

Aw, Latias is so kawaii~! ^^;
Another good episode. ^^ I love this series.
Latias is one of my favorite Pokemon, so I had to read this.
I love it, its so friendly, and kawaii, and cool, and...-stops since shes repeating herself- ...kay, I'm done.
^^; I really liked it when she turned human in the movie, that was cool.
I was kinda surprised that you added that in though.

ANP #69: A Roselia By Any Other Name....


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: A Roselia by any other name...is still a Roselia. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out.)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we feature one of May's best known rivals on the contest circuit...one who's never without his Roselia! So, please welcome Drew to the stage.

(applause as Drew appears onstage, Roselia in tow. May smiles as Drew shakes hands with Ash and makes himself comfortable)

Drew: Thank you....and hello to you too, May.

May: Hi, Drew!

Drew: Although she's my toughest opponent on the circuit, I have no hard feelings towards May...(reaches to nibble on a cracker until he notices the box of crackers is gone) Hey! Who took all the crackers?

(We look backstage at a trail of cracker crumbs as Munchlax strolls backstage, munching on the crackers. He's about to enter May's dressing room until May blocks his entrance.)

May: Oh no you don't! (chases after Munchlax)

(Back onstage, Ash and Drew wince at the crashing, pushing and shoving coming from backstage.)

Drew: All that just to rescue a box of crackers?

Ash: You know Munchlax...has to eat everything that could conceiveablly be edible. (walks over to the projector and starts it as the noise continues)

(CARTOON-"Win, Lose, or Drew", part 1)

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands watching from the audience as Drew enters a contest arena. Vivian announces "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Roselia sprays flower petals everywhere. as we look closer on the petals, we see that one of them is Pikachu's face!)

(Meanwhile, Drew helps May clean up the backstage area.)

May: Sorry about Munchlax...he eats everything in sight sometimes. (Munchlax sighs from a time out corner) No more crackers for you!

Drew: It's okay, you just neeed to train him to resist his urges to eat.

May: I think I'll do that...

(Later, the backstage area looks noticeably cleaner.)

Drew: My half's clean...so I'll go see if there's anything else to clean up.

May: Okay! (May continues working as Drew walks off. Suddenly, a whir of a pencil sharpener gets his attention. Closer inspection reveals Misty about to go to work at the drawing board.)

Drew: Hmm...interesting pencil... (sits down to watch as Misty goes to work. Roselia joins him a few moments later)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

Misty(voiceover): Oh, Drew! Didn't expect to see you there! I thought you were helping May clean the backstage area.

Drew(voiceover): I finished my half, and I was looking to see if anything else needed cleaning when I found you.

Misty(voiceover): Okay...I feel in the mood to do another Ash comic today...

(Ash is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Drew(voiceover): Let's make him do a commercial! I love doing those!

Misty(voiceover): You got it! (draws the director, Max, some staff and TV cameras)

(The director starts prepping Ash for a commercial. Ash is wearing a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses and has a pizza box with a Pikachu face on it)

Girl: Okay, your line is: 'On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh Pika Pizza. Take it from me, folks, they're the hottest pizzas around', okay?

Ash: Got it, Rubina. (adjusts the sunglasses)

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 1! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza. (holds the pizza box upside down, making the pizza fall to the ground).

Rubina(voicover): Cut! Now the pizza's all over the place!

Ash(sweatdrop) Sorry...

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 2! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pika...uh...Pika Puka...Puka Shika....bleh! My tongue's tied!

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 3! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(We see Ash trying to untie his tongue after getting it tied on the last take)

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 4! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(We notice that Ash has failed to get his tied tongue untied, so he's now playing it like a guitar.)

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 7! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza. Take it from me, folks...they're...um...uh...line?

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 12! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot--(suddenly realizes the pizza box is a little TOO hot.) GAH!!!

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 25! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza. (Before Ash can say any more, a stampede of Pikachus knocks him over)

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 39! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash(in a drone): On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza....

Rubina: Cut!

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard. It's now a little bit darker outside)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 64! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: On a hot day like today, (a Pidgey squawks overhead, and a white splotch appears on Ash's arm) I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza. Take it from me, folks; (another white splotch appears on the pizza box as another Pidgey squawks overhead) They're the hottest pizzas around!

Rubina(voiceover): At least you said the line....

(We blip to see Ash reading over the script)

Ash: It's not that I can't say the line, I'm just nervous.

Rubina(voiceover): I know, we'll keep trying till we get it right, okay?

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 128! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(Nincadas chirp)

Rubina(voiceover): HELLO??

Ash: Oh! (he starts to talk fast) On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Puka Pisha.

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard. It's now even more darker outside than before)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 256! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash(mumbling): Ona hoday li today, Ilito enoya horesh, Pikazza.

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 512! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(We see Ash eating the pizza)

Ash: Whah?

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard. He looks groggy eyed and it's now nighttime outside)

Max: Pika Pizza, take 1024! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash(dryly): On a hot day like today, I like to enjoy a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza.

(We blip to see Max holding a clapboard, the take number reeds 1337)

Max: Pika Pizza, take leet! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash: I LIKE PIZZA!

(A Pika Pizza box zooms up at the audience)

Brock(voiceover): You heard it from Ash, folks! Everyone loves a hot, fresh, Pika Pizza any time of the year. Go pick one up today!

Rubina: And that's a wrap...finally. (the clapboard reads "The End')

(Roselia is laughing profusely as Misty draws the last scene)

Drew: You like that, huh? (suddenly, the sounds of instruments tuning get his attention) Huh?

Ash: Drew, there you are! Brock and the band are about to play!

Drew: This should be interesting....

(Brock snaps a few times to count the band off, then music begins)

Brock: Feel the courage, and a rush of energy!
Today is brand new, come on; let's go!
Don't forget your PokeNav,
Everything is good to go!

Rivals face off, a battle begins!
I'm determined...ready? Let's go!

Looking out there at the sea and all this brand new land,
Lilycove City, a sunset is waiting there....

A double battle soon begins! See the fire burning?
I ride a motorcycle,
And I'm riding, this mighty wave!

Wanna, wanna, wanna do this!
I have a dream inside me that will never ever sleep!

Here I come, to this brand new town!
Let's go look for some new friends!
Welcome them aboard our whole new team!

Feel the courage, and a rush of energy!
Today is brand new, come on; let's go! (applause. Roselia is especially impressed.)

Drew: That was actually GOOD! (applauds some more. Ash starts the projector as the applause dies down.)

(CARTOON- "Win, Lose, or Drew", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Drew and Roselia on stage)

Drew: I do want to say I had a great time this evening, even if a Munchlax spoiled it.

Ash: Me too..we're about out of time for tonight, so we'll see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: I hope you're paying attention, there's a test at the end. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight--

(Ash is intterupted by a crash backstage)

Ash: What the--?

(The lights come up on Team Rocket)

Jessie: To protect the viewers from devastation...

James: And broadcast our own show throughout our nation...

Jessie: To announce the the evils of truth and love,

James: To extend your knowledge far above...

Jessie: Jessie!

James: James!

Jessie: Team Rocket! Broadcast at the speed of light!

James: Surrender now, or see black and white...

Meowth: Meowth! Dat's right!

Ash: Not you guys again... (gestures to Misty, who has come onstage to see what all the commotion is) Can I ask you something?

Misty: Go for it...

Ash: Can your magic pencils draw on a human body?

Misty: They sure can! What kind of disguise should I draw on you?

Ash: Well, draw on the costume Kochou of "Kochou and the Beautiflies" fame wears...I already have the hair! (Ash hangs up his cap, reaches for a long haired silver wig lying in a pile of clutter, and puts it on. Some girls in the audience scream.)

Brock: You're disguising yourself as a cartoon rock star?

Ash: I know Kochou's only a cartoon, Brock! My favorite cartoon, at that. (laughter)

(Meanwhile, the Rockets enter the projector room. Jessie starts digging for a reel)

Jessie: Now, the twerps have got to have cartoons with us in them somewhere... (digs through boxes of reels)

Meowth: Let's watch dis one! My favorite! (sticks a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Meowth's Party!")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands about to draw something with one of Misty's pencils. Suddenly, the Rockets barge into the room..but Ash manages to turn James into a girl, Jessie into a Loudred, and Meowth into a Pikachu. Meowth slumps to the floor as the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show!')

(Back onstage, Ash prepares to be turned into Kochou)

Misty: Okay, Ash...hold still while I draw the disguise on you. (Misty starts to draw, but Ash jerks away as the pencil point touches his skin) Hey, it's not gonna hurt! (erases the giant scribble on Ash's arm) Now hold still! (Ash stands perfectly still as Misty starts drawing Kochou's trademark jacket onto him. The audience starts to cheer as Ash is slowly transformed into the famed animated rock star. Brock notes the cheering is getting on Misty's nerves)

Brock: Guys, Misty needs quiet while she's working, okay? (the cheering stops. Misty just continues to work.)

(Back in the projector room, the room is now littered with reels and boxes as the Rockets depart.)

James: That's the last one! (picks up a reel and adds it to a stack he's carrying) Now we're ready to give the audience a marathon of our achievements! (He and Jessie start down the hall untill they arrive backstage, where a projector is waiting.) Let's see if this projector's working before we start our marathon. (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"A Scare to Remember!")

(We return backstage to see Brock watching Misty put the finishing touches onto Ash.)

Brock: You need more than the hair and the duds to be Kochou, Ash...can you do an impression of Kochou's voice?

Ash: Sure...speaking or singing?

Brock: Singing! And do it with the band!

Ash: Got it! (sneaks onstage, where the band is waiting. Ash whispers something to the drummer, who nods in response)

(music begins, surprising the Rockets)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Beat this, if you can!
Or are you just an also-ran?
I ain't no loser that you can dismiss!

Ash and others: Beat this!
Beat this!
Beat this!!!

Ash(singing as Kochou): Beat this, go and try!
If you can't, then wave goodbye!
This is my moment, my turn at bat!

Ash and others: Beat this!

Ash(singing as Kochou): Beat that!

Ash and others: Beat this!!!

Ash(singing as Kochou): You think you're really somethin', don't ya?
You think you've got it won, don't ya?
Well, I've got news,
I ain't about to lose!

Beat this, do your best!
And if you can't, may I suggest
You throw your hat in, and blow a kiss!

Ash and others: Beat this!

Ash(singing as Kochou): And then if you can,

Ash and others: Beat this!
Beat this!!! (applause as the Rockets flee)

Brock: He can do Kochou's voice, all right... (applauds as Ash and the band take a bow)

Misty: I don't draw on people very often cause it takes forever to erase! (starts erasing Ash's disguise as Brock starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Wayward Wobbufett!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Misty onstage. Misty erases the last bit of the disguse as Ash removes the wig and puts his cap back on)

Ash: Boy, being Kochou was fun! (the audience applauds in agreement)

Brock: You've got the part down, that's for sure. (laughter)

Ash: I would do it again, but we'll save it for another show, okay? (applause) So, see ya next time! (waves goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Things could get muddy here... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we feature the third of the Houen starter trio... (a spotlight appears on a Mudkip) This little guy.

Mudkip: Kip! (waves as the crowd applauds. Misty laughs as Mudkip continues acting silly for the crowd)

Brock: And to think we rescued this little girl...

Misty: Oh?

Brock: Watch this and you'll see what I mean. (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"A Mudkip Mission!", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands on a beach, playing volleyball with his friends. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash spikes the ball to Misty. As Misty prepares to serve the ball back to the boys, we see a Pikachu face in the sand.)

(We see Mudkip swimming in a pool as Misty prepares to go to work at the drawing board. Mudkip notes one of Misty's pencils and paddles over to where she can reach the jar of pencils by Misty's work area. Despite nearly getting the pencil wet in the process, she manages to snatch a pencil and draw a beach chair by the pool, which she settlees into as Misty goes to work...)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Mudkip(voiceover): Kip kip!

Misty(voiceover): You're wondering how Brock would fare on a road trip? (the pencil draws Brock behind the wheel of a van against the background of a highway. He drives along for a while....)

Mudkip(voiceover): Mud kip!

Misty(voiceover): Okay, I'll put a few passengers back in the back. (the pencil draws Ash, May, Crystal, Whitney, and various Pokemon in the back seat)

Ash: A hundred bottles of beer on the wall, a hundred bottles of beer on the wall, if one of those bottles should happen to fall, ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall...

Everyone else: Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall... (Brock sighs as he continues to drive on...)

(Hours later, the ongoing rendition of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" is starting to get to Brock...)

Ash, et al: Sixty-six bottles of beer on the wall, sixty six bottles of beer on the wall, if one of those bottles should happen to fall---

Brock: Could you guys sing something else? Please?

Crystal: Why?

Brock: I'm getting sick of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"!

Ash: Okay! I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves; I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, and this is how it goes...

Everyone else: I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves; I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, and this is how it goes...

Brock: Let me rephrase that... (we notice the map has a place marked "The End")

(Mudkip laughs so hard at the comic, she nearly falls back in the water)

Misty: I know how it feels to be the recipient of annoying car songs. (organizes the drawing board, then picks up Mudkip) Want to hear your master sing a song?

Mudkip: Kip! (she darts from Misty's hands and hurries up to Brock, who is still tuning his guitar, and whispers something to him...)

Brock: Well, I already had a song to sing tonight, but if you really wanna hear that one, I'll sing it. (Mudkip cheers as Brock motions to the band...)

(music begins)

Brock: Hear the rolling sea, sing a brand new melody...
I think of you, and I see...
Just close your eyes and think of me...

As I watch the sky, a letter comes in just for me...
A letter direct from the stars...
That I will cherish in my heart!

And the things in which, I believe...
Give me strength, so I, carry on...

Splash Dream!

My wishes fly out, like an arrow!
My love, it travels round the world...
And to everyone it meets, they want it!

Splash Dream!

I look around and see this Splash Dream!
I want to cherish love and peace!
For it I will fight!
I will protect it!

This I wish to know, what is this thing they call fate?
That leads us to the future?
The special truth that we should learn?

I have wondered now, since the first day of my life...
Now that the answer is clear...
I've always known it in my heart!

Life is precious, so, live it well...
Show the world, the meaning of love!

Splash Dream!

From this glass prison, I have ran free!
And although the wind can soothe and calm me...
Ever and always, sing my songs of blessing!

Splash Dream!

Taking the leap of faith now, Splash Dream!
I will embrace hope and peace!
The greatest one is love!
See it shining through!

[dance break-we see Mudkip grooving to the song]

Brock: Splash Dream!

I aim for my paradise now!
See it rising from the calm wave?
See my tears drifting away, forever?

Splash Dream!

My love, it comes just like a big wave!
My eternal song of peace!
Echoing today!
Choruses of love!

Splash Dream!

My wishes fly out, like an arrow!
My love, it travels round the world...
And to everyone it meets, they want it!

Splash Dream!

I look around and see this Splash Dream!
I want to cherish love and peace!
For it I will fight!
I will protect it! (Mudkip leads the applause as Brock and the band bow)

Mudkip: Kip! Kipkip!

Misty: She wants an encore, Brock...

Brock: Your encore will have to wait, my dear... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"A Mudkip Mission", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Brock, and Mudkip onstage)

Ash: Well, we're about out of time...

Mudkip: Mud? Mud kipkip?

Brock: Okay, okay, I'll give you an encore...just let Ash say goodbye first.

Ash: See ya next time! (waves goodbye. Pikachu wives goodbye from his spot next to Mudkip as the curtain closes. A solo guitar version of "On Our Way" plays as the credits roll. When all the credits run, the curtain reopens to show Mudkip and Pikachu applauding Brock.)

Brock: Happy now?

Mudkip: Kip! (winks as one last hit of music plays)

ANP #72: Mixed Genetics


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Don't say you love me......then what would you like me to say? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We see a glimpse backstage, where Misty is briefing Mewtwo on what is about to happen onstage)

Misty: Remember, the people in the audience are not there to hurt you, they're here to enjoy themselves and learn about your story...and how Ash made you who you are today.

Mewtwo: I see...Ash taught me a lot about behaving properly around humans, but I'm still afraid of what is to come...

Misty: Well, in a few minutes, Ash is going to come onstage and tell the audience a little bit about you, then when he says it's time for you to come onstage, you come onstage.

Mewtwo(thinking): Don't come onstage until Sir Ash says so...okay. (to Misty) Then what happens?

Misty: You thank Ash for letting you come.

Mewtwo: And after that?

Misty: He'll probably start telling your tale to the audience...(Misty is about to say more when she hears applause. Mewtwo jerks back in fear)

Mewtwo: What was that????

Misty: That's just the audience applauding Ash...there's nothing to be afraid of.

Mewtwo:...Okay.... (He hovers over to the wings and watches Ash address the audience)

Ash: ...and just watching the Pokemon's tears revive me was enough to spur Mewtwo into changing his evil ways...but rather than me talking about it, why not have Mewtwo himself tell his side of the story? (some cheers)

Misty: Go on! That's your cue! (coaxes Mewtwo onstage, where he proceeds to shield his eyes from the spotlights)

(Nincadas chirp as Mewtwo nervously glances around the audience, mesmerized and afraid at the same time)

Misty(offstage): He has a little stage fright, Ash...

Ash: So I saw...let's watch this...it'll fill you in on Mewtwo's tale... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Mewtwo Strikes Back", part 1)

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands overlooking a city, Ash looks on top of a building to see Mewtwo on the roof, looking down at him, then turns his attention to the city lights. the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Mewtwo looks up at the sky. One of the constellations is Pikachu's face.)

(Mewtwo composes himself for a moment, then hovers over to a chair before Ash.)

Ash: Are we calmed down yet?

Mewtwo: I guess...(he feels the chair's arm, mesmerized by how it feels) So soft...

Brock(offstage): Attention please! (Mewtwo jumps back in surprise as Brock suddenly appears in a spotlight)

Misty: What is it?

Ash: You scared Mewtwo here! (gestures to the quivering Mewtwo.)

Brock: I just wanted some attention. (a rimshot is heard, making the audience laugh)

Mewtwo: I don't understand...

Ash: It's a joke...usually when you say "Attention please", you usually have something important to tell everyone... (Mewtwo thinks about it, then snickers a little when he finally gets the joke.)

Mewtwo: Tell me more about this 'laughter'...

Misty: Laughter is the sound made when an audience thinks something's funny.

Mewtwo: Oh...

Ash: Another thing we like doing on a show is dancing...moving our bodies to music, like this!

(Music begins as Ash does a quick tap dance, dancing offstage when he's done. The audience applauds)

Mewtwo: Interesting....

(Ash dances back onstage, to the audience's applause)

Brock: It's a lot more fun when you dance with a partner...(he sweeps Misty in his arms) Maestro...

(a jazzy beat begins, which Brock and Misty proceed to swing dance to. The audience applauds when they're done.)

Mewtwo: Beautiful....that looked very beautiful...

Misty: Thanks...

(Ash glances at an onstage clock for a moment)

Ash: We've got time to show Mewtwo another act... (to Mewtwo) This is the part of the show where Brock and the house band usually sing a song, but they need a minute to get ready...

Mewtwo: Music sounds interesting...but if everyone needs time to prepare, I can wait. (settles in the chair as Ash starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Mewtwo Strikes Back", part 2)

(guitar intro as we look in on Brock and the band playing in the theater)

(Ash joins in on whistle...much to Combusken's chagrin. She stomps over and shoots Ash The Look. Ash quickly stops playing and pockets the whistle. Brass and steel drums continue as the light comes up on Brock strumming to the beat.)

(Ash dashes backstage and resumes playing his whistle, much to the delight of Bonsly, Togepi and Pichu, they dash onstage before Brock can solo.)

Brock: One sunny morning, I got up late,
And there were these Mankeys outside the gate! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu run around Brock's feet)
The guards tried to stop them, they had no luck,
The Mankeys broke free and they ran amok! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu run offstage, forcing Brock to chase after them)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: So I dropped by to see the studio nurse, (we see Nurse Joy tending to some Pokemon)
I came downstairs, and what could be worse?
The Mankeys were doing a crazy dance, (we see Bonsly and Pichu dancing)
And they put Ledybas inside my pants! (we see Togepi do just that, making Brock dance along with Bonsly and Pichu)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Mankeys dance, and I dance too!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: I ran onstage, and grabbed a stick, (Brock swipes a drumstick nearby the drummer)
I'm telling you guys, those Mankeys were quick! (Brock is shocked at what he sees back in the Pokemon Center)
Cause when I returned, much to my disgrace,
The Mankeys had Nurse Joy in a warm embrace! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu cling to Nurse Joy)

Nurse Joy: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Pichu: For a credit, I'll give you a clue!

Togepi: I didn't know your eyes were so blue!

Brock: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

(Brock dashes outside to escape the babies. Ash takes this opportunity to solo with the band. He continues to play as Brock dashes back inside and all around the backstage area.)

Brock: I went for a bath, took a shower, and shave,
The Mankeys gonna send me off to my grave!
The entire bathroom was laid to rest,
And they tried to shave my head with toothpaste! (We see Brock with a mound of toothpaste on his head as Pichu and Togepi prepare to shave him, or try to. Brock races from the bathroom before the shaving begins)
I don't know what to say, the Mankey's won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: These guys are crazy, I'm telling you!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Now by this time, and without much flair,
They used a basting brush to comb my hair! (We see Togepi and Pichu doing just that, making Brock's hair stick up in fifteen defferent directions)
I asked them to leave, but they stayed around,
They pulled the handle and I went down! (Pichu flushes Brock down the toilet)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Call my agent, I'm fixing to sue!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

(Ash and the band solo again as Brock chases the babies, but Combusken stops Ash mid-solo. A dust cloud ensures as Ash and Combusken fight each other. Brock gets pulled into the fray as Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu dance by with maracas. Before they can dance out the stage door, Brock finds them, and the chase resumes again.)

Brock: My patience ran out, and this time for sure,
I am gonna show those Mankeys the door!
And if they don't leave, I'm inviting you, (Brock throws on an apron and enters his dressing room, where a pot is simmering on the stove)
To my place for dumplings and Mankey stew! (We see Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu in the pot)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do! (they continue cooking Brock)

Brock: Now I'm in the stew...oh pooh...

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do! (Brock escapes the pot and runs away!)

Brock: Watch out for Mankeys, I'm telling you!

Bonsly, Togepi, Pichu, Ash and Nurse Joy: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: We're not Mankeys, we're just cuckoo!

Bonsly, Togepi, Pichu, Ash, and Nurse Joy: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Ash: Cha-cha-cha! (applause as everyone bows. Mewtwo is laughing profusely.)

Mewtwo: That was a very funny song! (wipes away a tear of laughter) This feeling of pleasure...it feels so wonderful! (settles back in the chair as Misty starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Mewtwo Strikes Back", part 3)

(We join, Ash, Misty, Mewtwo, and Pikachu onstage)

Misty: Now tonight wasn't so bad, was it?

Mewtwo: No, I very much enjoyed myself...when's the next one?

Ash: Tomorrow night at the same time! See you then! (waves goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. On Our Way reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #073: The Gale and the Mastermind!

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses, looking at a picture of a girl)

Brock: I know she's evil, but she's still pretty! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we focus on a rather interesting theory concerning Shadow Pokemon...you all remember the whole Mirage Pokemon incident?

Random audience member: Yeah, they made your voices sound awful!

Ash: Don't blame the Mirage Pokemon, the stunt doubles did a lot of the filming, and it was them you heard talking! (Misty is nearby with a notepad)

Misty: Note to self: Remind producers to fire current stunt doubles and hire new ones that sound good! (writes in the notebook)

Ash: Anyway...something similar to that incident happened in Orre with Shadow Pokemon, and joining us tonight is the adventurer that stopped the spead of the Shadows...please welcome Rich to the stage. (leads the applause as a boy with long blue hair clad in black Western attire appears onstage and shakes hands with Ash)

Rich: Thank you..it's a pleasure to be with you tonight, Ash.

Ash: The pleasure's all ours. (he gets comfortable in a chair while Rich settles into a second chair facing Ash) So, how exactly did this whole adventure start?

Rich: Well, Ash, as you probably know, I am the champion of Larousse City's Battle Tower---a place I've seen you at before, in fact. It wasn't always that way. I had forfeited my championship and vanished into seclusion......this is still hard for me to talk about today.....when my parents and fiancee---or so I thought, in the latter's case, were killed in the bombing of Wishmaker Tower. I hid with my sorrows for four years before deciding to make a comeback, and during my comeback it was my now-wife Anabel who told me about Enigma Shadow's evil deeds for the first time. So in short, that's really how I first ended up becoming the third Snagger of Shadow Pokémon.

Brock(offstage): Anabel's your lover? (Brock appears onstage and settles in a third chair) No wonder she said she was taken!

Ash: I'm asking the questions, okay? (to Rich) As I was saying, what kinds of activities was this Enigma Shadow doing?

Rich: First off, they were manufacturing Shadow Pokémon in the way Cipher used to. That's what I initially got involved in. Later on, we discovered that the Shadow Pokémon were just part of an evil plot of world domination they held, which also involved stealing important treasures from the Metalico Islands. These treasures were rumored to lead the way to Ho-oh, so you can imagine why they wanted to get them.

Ash: What were these treasures?

Rich: The treasures were five precious gems known as the Element Plates. All five Metalico Islands had one---Sapphire Isle, Port Emerald, Ruby Island, Pearl Key, and Diamond Rock---that corresponded to the island it was on.
(Rich is about to elaborate on this, when we hear a crash backstage.)
Ash: What's going on?

May(offstage): Munchlax's trying to raid the pantry again...

Ash: I think we'd better go to commercial...this could take a while...(gets up and heads backstage)

Rick: Take your time, I can wait.

(We see a pair of animated Ash hands looking up at Citidark Isle. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the camera zooms in to focus on the Cipher fortress. One of the lava flows surrounding the island is a Pikachu face)

(We rejoin Ash and Rich onstage)

Ash: Now that we have that out of the way...did the Elemental Plates have powers?

Rich: Seperate, no. But when all five were brought together at Sulfur Hill---a large rocky peak in the center of the Metalico Islands---it was prophesized that Ho-oh would then be awakened. Obviously it turned out to be true, but I did not witness the awakening.

Ash: What happened once Ho'oh awakened?

Rich: It's a bit complicated. When the legend was awakened we were already back in Larousse City and battling my fiancee, the one who I thought was dead, who actually was the evil leader of Enigma Shadow. She was very close to victory as well, seeing as she had summoned Groudon with her dark powers to help her, but the man who awakened Ho-oh arrived with it at a decisive moment, just the right time for us to rally and stop her mad plans. I have video footage of the battle. (holds up a reel to illustrate his point)

Ash: We'll watch it once Brock sings whatever song he has planned-- (another crash is heard) Uh oh...

Brock(offstage): Busy chasing Munchlax, so can't sing at the moment...

Misty(offstage): Peach and her crew are coming, and I've already told them what to sing!

Ash: Thanks, Misty! (applause as Peach and the Poketones appear in a spotlight in their semicircle)

(music begins)

Peach: I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every guy I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think that was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me! (wild applause as Peach leads the bows)

Rich: Very nice! (applauds)

Peach: My pleasure, pardner! (hurries offstage. Rich threads his reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Enigma Battle!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Rich onstage)

Ash: Well, we're almost out of time...I never knew the interview would take that long...

Rich: It's okay, I enjoyed my stay here tonight.

Ash: See ya next time! (waves goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. On Our Way reprise plays as the credits roll.)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: I ain't fraid of no ghosts! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you...tonight we look at a rather "spirited" group of Pokemon, if you will...the Ghost type!

(a spotlight appears at stage right, but nobody enters)

Ash(whispering): Haunter, you're on!

(Suddenly, Ash feels a presence behind him...he turns around to see Haunter and yelps in surprise, prompting the audience to laugh)

(Misty peeks onstage, concerned about Ash's cry)

Misty: What's the matter?

Ash: Haunter surprised me!

Misty: He's a Ghost Pokemon, that's his job. (more laughter as Ash blushes, embarrassed. Suddenly, the projector turns on by itself...Misty whirls around to see Haunter operating the projector...)

(CARTOON-"Haunter vs. Kadabra", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands fumbling around in the dark. He opens a closet and is surprised when Haunter pops out! Haunter laughs as the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!", then flies off. We notice his trail of smoke forms a Pikachu face)

(We rejoin Haunter backstage. He is obviously enthralled with all the props and costumes...until he spots Bonsly sleeping nearby the drawing board. He flashes a blue light in Bonsly's face...which is enough to make Bonsly cry)

(Brock hears Bonsly's wailing from the makeup room and rushes to see what's the matter)

Brock: What's going on here?

Ash: Haunter scared Bonsly...

Brock: Did that mean old ghost scare you, little guy? (Bonsly nods. Haunter is not pleased with being called mean and old)

Ash: You know, Haunter...scaring others isn't such a good idea... (Haunter sighs as Misty settles in before the drawing board)

Misty: Ash is right, you know... (goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude as the title appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in Board.)

(A white screen appears)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Brock: You're not plotting to scare me, are you?

(A pie appears out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, Haunter, that's enough...(Haunter laughs as Brock cleans off the pie. The pencil draws a background of an old house) How'd you like to do a little ghostbusting?

Brock: Sounds fun!

Misty(voiceover): The only catch is: You have to use this. (the pencil draws an odd vacuum cleaner-like device on Brock)

Brock: Who do I look like, Luigi?

(the pencil proceeds to draw Brock as Luigi as the "Luigi's Mansion" theme plays. Haunter laughs profusely)

Misty(voiceover): Haunter thinks you do. (a record scrape is heard as Misty erases the Luigi outfit off of Brock) Now, go bust some ghosts!

Brock: Well, first I have to FIND some ghosts to bust...(he starts down a hallway of the old house. Some lightning flickers outside.)

(Hours later, Brock stops to rest in the foyer of the mansion)

Brock: I've searched this old mansion from top to bottom, and not a ghost anywhere!

Misty(voiceover): This help? (the pencil draws a Game Boy Horror Advance)

Brock: Yeah, thanks! (switches on the device, making all the Ghost Pokemon in the room appear)

Misty(voiceover): Go to it, Ghostbuster!

(We see scenes of Brock vacuuming up the various ghosts in the different rooms...when we return to the foyer, there is not a ghost to be found)

Brock: Luigi would be proud of me, I bet. (smiles as we see a flash of lightning spell "The End" from the window)

(Haunter laughs as he draws several Gastlys and Shuppets into existence. Misty is not amused as she draws the last scene)

Misty: If you guys would behave yourselves, I bet Brock would sing you a song...

(Haunter leads the other ghosts onstage, where Brock and the band are tuning up)

Brock: Okay, I'll give you a taste of my boo-tiful songs... (laughter as Brock finishes tuning his guitar)

(an upbeat techno tune begins, prompting the ghosts to dance)

Brock: I'm in the mood for dancing, romancing,
Whoa, giving it all, tonight!
I'm in the mood for chancing, I feel like dancing!
Hoo!
Come on and hold me tight!

Dancing! (dancing!)
I'm in the mood, babe!
So let the music play!
Dancing! (dancing!)
I'm in the mood, babe!
So get up and let your body sway!

[dance break-We see Ash, Misty, May, Pikachu, and the ghosts grooving to the song as Brock solos]

Brock: I'm in the mood for dancing, romancing,
You know I should never stop tonight!
I'm in the mood, I'm in the mood, I'm in the mood,

To dance! Get up and dance! Come on and dance!
I'm in the mood to take a chance!
Yeah, let's dance! Come on and dance!
I'm in the mood to take a chance!
Yeah, let's dance! Come on and dance!
Get on your feet! Now make your dance!
Let us dance! Come on and dance!....

(Haunter dances over to the projector and starts it as Brock continues singing "Yeah, lets dance! Come on and dance! I'm in the mood to take a chance!" and everyone continues dancing)

(CARTOON-"Haunter vs. Kadabra", part 2)

(We rejoin the cast and the ghosts. Everyone else is tired, but Pikachu and Haunter keep dancing as an instrumental of "I'm in the Mood For Dancing" plays softly in the background)

Ash: Well, that was fun...

Misty: I'll say... (the ghosts sigh in agreement)

Ash: Not to mention we're out of time for tonight...Brock, take us out of here.

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye, then continues dancing with Haunter. Brock sings the second verse of "I'm in the Mood For Dancing" as the credits roll)

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: And the nominees are... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you, and welcome to our third viewer's choice season finale!...

Misty(offstage): One more and we'll hit a hundred shows! (applause)

Ash: Very true. (he pauses to grab some envelopes lying on a table) In my hands lie what you, the fans, have chosen as the best of this season...

(Before Ash can say any more, the spotlight comes up on a giant dictionary)

Ash: What the?

(drumroll)

Male announcer: And now, Brock sings every word in the dictionary! (a bouncy tune begins as Brock dances out onstage before the dictionary, which opens to the first page of the A's. Brock points to each word as he sings it)

Brock: Aardvark, abating, aback, advocating, abandon, abate and abreast.... (Ash hides his face in his hands, embarrassed, as Brock continues) Ablaze and ablusion, abhor and abusion, abbriviate, abbey, abcess... (Misty sighs as she comes onstage. Brock continues singing words in the background as she talks to Ash)

Misty: The fans didn't ask to see this, did they?

Ash: I don't remember them asking for this....(checks the envelopes and opens one, then starts to the projector. Brock just continues to rattle off words as Ash starts the projector...)

(CARTOON-"Island of the Giant Pokemon")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands receiving an envelope. He steps out onstage and opens it as the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'! The seal on the envelope is a sticker of Pikachu's face)

(We join Ash and Misty backstage as Brock continues to rattle off words)

Misty: What inspired him to do something as crazy as singing the dictionary?

Ash: Beats me...but pack a lunch, because singing the dictionary will take a pretty long while...plus, who's gonna sing the winning song if Brock's busy singing the dictionary?

Misty: That reminds me...we have a new addition to the cast...

Ash: Oh?

Misty: All the way from the Shinou region, and one of their best singers! Her name's Kari.

Ash: If I show you the winning comic, I'd like to introduce myself to her while you draw it.

Misty: I asked May to make her feel welcome, so she should be getting comfy in her dressing room.

Ash: Okay, then....here's the comic... (opens the envelope in question and shows the paper inside to Misty, who nods and goes to work as Ash heads for the dressing rooms. A Mudkip climbs on the drawing board to watch)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A blank screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Mudkip(voiceover): Kip kip!

Misty(voiceover): You're wondering how Brock would fare on a road trip? (the pencil draws Brock behind the wheel of a van against the background of a highway. He drives along for a while....)

Mudkip(voiceover): Mud kip!

Misty(voiceover): Okay, I'll put a few passengers back in the back. (the pencil draws Ash, May, Crystal, Whitney, and various Pokemon in the back seat)

Ash: A hundred bottles of beer on the wall, a hundred bottles of beer on the wall, if one of those bottles should happen to fall, ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall...

Everyone else: Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall... (Brock sighs as he continues to drive on...)

(Hours later, the ongoing rendition of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" is starting to get to Brock...)

Ash, et al: Sixty-six bottles of beer on the wall, sixty six bottles of beer on the wall, if one of those bottles should happen to fall---

Brock: Could you guys sing something else? Please?

Crystal: Why?

Brock: I'm getting sick of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"!

Ash: Okay! I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves; I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, and this is how it goes...

Everyone else: I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves, everybody's nerves; I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves, and this is how it goes...

Brock: Let me rephrase that... (we notice the map has a place marked "The End")

(Back in the dressing rooms, May is helping a brown haired girl clad in a black shirt, a pink skirt to match, and a white floppy hat with a red Poke Ball on it. Judging from the various items strewn about the room, this room is to be the new girl's dressing room. Ash peeks in just as May finishes putting up a changing screen and starts to wire a digital piano)

Ash: How's the unpacking going?

May: Just fine! Kari says she's glad to be here, and looks foward to singing with Brock...(to the girl) Kari, this is Ash, the host of the show...he'll be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Kari: Sounds good! (she unzips her next suitcase and produces a few pieces of cookware, one of which has a pie inside.) I made this little treat just for you.

Ash: Oh boy...let me have it!

Kari: Here ya go! (throws the pie at Ash with a SPLUT!)

Ash: I didn't mean let me have it that way... (May laughs at Ash storms off to clean up)

May: Did I mention Kari's a bit of a trickster? (Kari giggles as Torchic hops up to the projector and starts it...)

(CARTOON-"Premiere for the Prince of the Sea!")

(Meanwhile, Brock rests by the dictionary as Ash and Misty return to the stage with Kari. Ash is cleaning off the last of the pie, and Misty is eating some ice cream)

Ash: Taking a break, Webster? (laughter)

Brock: One letter down, 25 more to go! (gestures to the dictionary, which is now on the first page of the B's)

Ash: By the way, this is our latest cast member, Kari...all the way from the Shinou region! (applause)

Brock: Oh, really?

Ash: Kari, this is Brock, our resident singer...(to Brock) You don't mind if she sings tonight, do you?

Brock: Course not! (is about to resume singing words when he notices Kari inspecting the ingredients on Misty's ice cream) What's so great about the ingredients in ice cream?

Kari(reading the ingredients): Zinc trisodium asprertate, sorbitol and bisulfate; oxide beta carotene, (she starts reading more rhythmically) Lactic acid, carob bean...(she starts singing to the tune of the Can Can) Grade A milk, emulsified, malto dextrin alkalide, silicon deoxylide, lots of sugar...

Ash: Hey, all right!

Kari(still reading the ingredients): Calcified synthetic salt, artificial barley malt, glycerine and aspertate, folic acid...

May: That tastes great!

Kari, Ash and May(all reading the ingredients): Monosodium glutamate, dehydrated calceinate, soybean oil, butter fat, caramel center...

Misty: I'll eat that... (takes a bite of the aformentioned caramel center)

Kari and May: Hooray for sugar, cause we love it! Chocolate chips, we want more of it! Taste so nice, they want to shove it down our throats real fast! (Misty swallows another bite of ice cream)

Misty: First we sing the dictionary, then we sing the ingredients in my ice cream, so what's next? Singing all the nations of the world or all the numbers beyond zero?...

Pikachu: Pika chu... (tiptoes to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden")

(We join the cast onstage)

Ash: Well, that was certainly different....

Misty: I'll say... (finishes her ice cream)

Ash: At any rate, Kari, welcome aboard to the show... (applause)

Kari: Thank you....I'm glad to be here.

Ash: See you next time, and next season! (he and the cast wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)
