Battle of the Shaking Island! Barboach vs. Whiscash!! (ゆれる島の戦い！ドジョッチＶＳナマズン！！) is the skipped 9th episode of Pokémon: Advanced Battle.
Now that Ash has finished with the gym match at Mossdeep City, he and his friends are now resuming their adventure towards the next gym at Sootopolis City. On their way, they take a visit at Jojo Island. There, they meet the Whiskers Pokémon, Whiscash, which is causing troubling earthquakes while rampaging underground and causing a huge problem above ground for the inhabitants on the island. Ash and his friends meet a young boy named Chota. How will they fix the problem with Whiscash?
- This one was supposed to make its first airing on November 4, 2004, but the episode was skipped due to an earthquake that happened nearly a week before the original Japanese language airing of Solid as a Solrock. This episode was never aired.
- Although the preview shown at the end of Solid as a Solrock in the Japanese version showed Vanity Affair's preview, Pokémon on Flets did actually show a preview of this episode which is the only footage from the episode that was ever released to the public.
- The moves, Earthquake, Fissure and Magnitude have not been used in the anime in future episodes in order to prevent the same circumstance that prevented this episode from airing.
