Episode Plot

As the NImbasa City Subway fight continues, all of the Pokémons from the Pokemon Center, and others owned by Ash and co. are taken by Team Rocket in their own ghost train. Their plan was running perfectly as they set up more ghost train decoys around the inside of the Subway System and made their way above ground to Anville Town. Will they get them back with the help of Ingo and Emmet? Yes, with the help of Emmet's Pokemon partner Eelektross. And can Pikachu and Axew escape on their own with help from their Pokemon friends as they let them out of their Poke Balls? Yes, as soon as Dwebble use its secreted liquid to melt a hole in the door. Then, they can use every moves they could to disconnect Team Rocket's train couplings to separate them, and get up on the rooftop to get away. And why Pikachu looks super furious anytime he sees Meowth during the whole episode? Because Meowth betrayed Ash and the group by returning to Team Rocket and revealing that he was traveling with them for Team Rocket's plan.


Pokémon Debuts


  • This is the second time Pikachu lets all of Ash's Pokemons come out since IL017: Island of the Giant Pokémon!, although Ash's Snivy would do all the work by letting them out for Pikachu as he come up with a plan on how to escape.
  • Also, this would be the third time when Pikachu is speaking to the other Pokemons in their own language even though there's no subtitles.
  • Who's that Pokemon?: Eelektross (US).


  • It would be impossible for Pikachu to use Electro Ball to let Ash's Snivy come out of her Poke Ball even though he's in cages.


  • Who's that Pokemon?: Eelektross (US).
