Pokémon: Indigo League


Ash must now focus on training for the Pokemon Leauge. As they procced further, a Jigglypuff is seen. Trouble is being... smelt. Ash and Misty eat some of Brock's chilly, but it is too hot. A woman arrives, so Brock goes with his flirting scheme, and in so doing, Misty pulls his ear. The woman introduces herself as Katrina who wants a battle. She sends her Raichu nad they begin to battle. However, Team Rocket capture both Pokemon. Team Rocket spot that they captured Riachu only, and it electrocutes them with a Thunderbolt. Riachu uses Mega Kick, but a man stops them.

The man is amazed by the scenery, calling Team Rocket as losers. The man chants a variation oif Team Rocket's own chant, although nobody seems to recognise him. Brock recognizes him as Cleavon Schpielbunk - he directed his favourite movie. Cleavon has come to get some new actors - Jessie and James immidiately advertise themselves. However, they are rejected when they hear that he needs Pokemon actors only. Cleavon shows the Wigglytuff as his star of the movie. Meowth makes fun of it, but is soon slapped by Wigglytuff. Brock makes compliments of it, but is soon slapped as well. Wigglytuff leaves, so Cleavon needs some other Pokemon to be starred. Cleavon mentiones that the movie will be seen by millions of people.

Pokemon are on the theatre, going for the audition. Togepi goes as well, but Misty takes it back as she thinks it is too young. Brock sends Vulpix on the audition as well. Misty sends Staryu, but Psyduck comes from its Pokeball. The music starts, so the Pokemon need to dance to pass. Cleavon is amazed, but has decided the 7 Pokemon - Pikachu, Raichu, Arbok, Weezing, Vulpix, Psyduck and Meowth to be in the movie. Next, Cleaveon would like to hear the Pokemon sing. Jigglypuff arrives and sings, so everyone falls asleep and Jiggly puff, angered, draws on their faces. After they all removed the marks, Cleavon deicdes they need to sing with Wigglytuff.

Meowth says he'd like to work alone, but gets slapped. Jessie and James order Arbok and Weezing to sing alone, but they are charmed by Wigglytuff and get slapped. Cleaveon deicides to kick Meowth, Arbok and Weezing from the movie. Jessie and James are about to get into a fight, but Weezing and Arbok leave them. Every Pokemon leaves BUT Psyduck. Since Psyduck is the only one left, it gets that part, much to the gang's suprise. Misty is happy nontheless. Cleaveon gives them a preview where Psyduck and Wigglytuff are going out for a date, but their families are furious. An arrow goes for Wigglytuff, but Psyduck comes and wounds itself by the arrow, saving Wigglytuff. Sadly, PSyduck's wound is enormous, leaving it unconcious.

Misty thinks she heared the story from before, but Brock, Katrina and Ash want to work on it. Team Rocket spot them and want to disrupt, but Arbok and Weezing are still sad when they did not get the roles. Jessie and James give lecture that they need years before they can be stars. The movie begins to be recorded, although Cleavon starts from the ending. Pidgeotto uses Gust, with Satryu's Water Gun following to get more interest. Pikachu and Raichu use Thundershock to make hunder in the sky. Both "families" begin to fight. Psyduck and Wigglytuff begin to be sad, but Wigglytuff is knocked out when Pikachu lands on ts face. Suddenly, a smoke appears!

Team Rocket appear to ruin the movie, but the Pokemon surround them and fight them. The cameraman and Cleavon himself enter the fight. Ash, Brock and Misty pose in front of the camera, but they see Team Rocket took all the Pokemon (well, except Psyduck). Psyduck begins to run in circles, while Wigglytuff asks for help. Psyduck begins to focus, using Confusion to free the Pokemon and blasting Team Rocket off. Psyduck is exhausted and Wigglytuff runs at him. Psyduck awakens and yells. Everyone cheers for Psyduck and Cleaveon stops recording, being happy for the opportunity.

Ash is sad when he did not train for the Leauge, but is reminded that he helped to make a movie - a chance rarely someone gets. Cleaveon has an idea of a new movie where 2 trainers train to win in Pokemon Leauge. Meanwhile, Team Rocket hang on a tree...
