A Ruin with a View is the second Episode of Pokémon Advanced and Pokémon Advanced Generation.
Now that Pikachu is feeling better, Ash is ready to head to Oldale Town to sign up for the Hoenn League. May has offered to show Ash the way in exchange for his company to Oldale Town—which is only fair, seeing as Pikachu destroyed May's bike when it was sick! In Oldale Town, May visits her first Pokémon Center and is amazed with all of its services, and by the ancient ruins next door. Things quickly turn sour when Team Magma, a mysterious band of criminals, shut down the electricity at the Pokémon Center and kidnap Professor Alden in order to invade the ruins. With no electricity, all of the Pokémon are in danger—including May's Torchic. It's up to Ash and May to save the day—and in doing so they uncover mysterious, ancient Pokémon.

, where Ash will register for the Hoenn League.
"Pikachu, since Oldale Town is so close you wanna race the rest of the way?"
"Hey! Hold up a minute!" "You're walking too slow!" "If I knew you'd run the whole way I wouldn't have offered you my help."
"What are you talking about? I just wanna get there before it gets too dark!"
"I did have a bike..."
"Hhhhhh.... You know, I guess there's no harm if we slow it down a little bit!"
"I always thought that Pokémon were supposed to stay inside their
"I guess so, but Pikachu likes it better hanging outside with me."
"Hmmm... I haven't gotten any complaints from my Torchic yet. Come to think of it I barely know anything about this Torchic."
"Then what you should do is look it up in that new Pokédex you got."
"Oh yeah! Well it says here that Torchic is a Fire Type Pokémon and it's attacks are..."
Ash interrupts "Hey, look at that!" "At what?"
Azurill, The Water Ball Pokémon. Azurill is able to throw it's tail like a lasso using the momentum to move about.
Azurill is curious "Azurill???"
"It's so cute! I want it!" "Then try and catch it!"
"Alright! I'll just grab me a Poké Ball and throw it!"
"No! Not like that May!"
"Oh yeah! I caught my first Pokémon!"
"Hey! What gives?" "Well, you're not gonna catch anything that way."
"Why not? I threw an empty Poké Ball at it didn't I?" "First, you have to battle the Pokémon and weaken it, then you throw your Poké Ball."
"Right, I know! Time for a Pokémon Battle! Torchic I choose you!"
"Now... what are those attacks again?"
Torchic runs after Azurill impatiently But ends up hitting into a tree "That wasn't good... Torchic, are you okay?" Torchic recovers and then runs after Azurill again
"Whoa! Torchic not so fast! Wait for me!"
Azurill is chased By Torchic but Torchic ends up crashing into a nearby rock
"Okay, next time don't do anything until I tell you to. Hey what what you crying for? C'mon!"
"May if you don't hurry it'll get away!"
