{{nihongo|Round One - Begin!|ポケモンリーグかいまく!みずのフィールド!|Pokémon League Commencement! Water Field!}} is the 75th episode of the [[Pokémon: Indigo League]] season.
Ash goes in to sign up for the Pokémon League. In the Pokémon League competition, each participant must battle in all four arenas. After sign up is complete, he ends up battling in the water arena. Ash meets Gary before the battle, who is very confident as usual. Gary enters his battle and wins it. Ash meets his challenger in the water arena. His name is Mandi, and he is quite confident he will win as well. Before the battle, Ash gets Krabby from Oak through an exchange system. Then, he heads towards the arena for battle. Ash enters the arena. Just as the battle is about to begin, Team Rocket is in the announcer’s stand cheering him on. They are soon carted away by a group of five Officer Jennies. Ash fights the battle hard. Using his Krabby, he manages to win the first battle which then evolves into a Kingler. Continually fighting the battles with Mandi’s Pokémon, Ash wins them all much to the surprise of Mandi who was sure he would win. With the first Pokémon battle won, Ash faces the next arena.

Ash's decision has picked a trainer named Mandi. Per Oak's advice, Ash chooses Krabby to battle in first round. Though Mandi's Pokémon corner Krabby, it evolves into a Kingler. Will Ash be able to win his first match in the League?

==Episode Plot==
  +
At Prof. Oak's lab, the citizens (including the professor and Ash's mum) watch the opening of the League. Delia is happy to see her son on TV. The woman asks for Ash's identifications. Brock flirts with her, but gets pushed away by Misty. He gives her his own Pokédex and confirms that he is the first time in the League. The woman checks his ID and tells he is checked in. Ash asks who will his first opponent be, but Brock clarifies that he needs to win at one of the four fields (grass, rock, ice and water) to be able to continue. Ash asks him how he'd knew that. Brock tells he studied the manual of the Pokémon League (trying to impress the lady, but gets pushed again by Misty). Ash asks the lady on which field should he choose. The lady tells him he needs to press the button. Upon doing so, the screen displays he'll battle at the Water field with a man named Mandi.
   
*Meowth calls Mandi's Pidgeys "Pigeotto".
+
Team Rocket interviews a man to see what Pokémon he has, but they walk away by commenting he has an bugzilla (Venomoth), a three-headed bird (Dodrio) and an overgrown rat (Raticate). Team Rocket go to see if they can snitch a Pokémon or two and see a man who performs magic tricks (which is Mandi, the opponent that will battle Ash). The man introduces himself as Mandi and asks from which channel they are. They respond they are from LCN. Mandi says he only gets interviewed by channels that have viewers and leaves Jessie angered. James and Meowth calm her down, else they would be kicked out of this place.
   
==Trivia==
+
Misty asks if Ash'd borrow her Pokémon. Ash refuses, as he knows he can use Squrtile for this battle. They encounter Gary, who wants Ash to win the first battle to have the pleasure of defeating Ash himself. Gary sees it is his time to battle and leaves Ash angered by saying that Pallet Town needs at least one good trainer. Ash soon hears he has a call and sees it is Prof. Oak. Oak advises Ash he should switch one of his Pokémon for the battle, as Gary switched two already. Ash sees Krabby and asks if he could get Krabby. Oak goes to get the machine, while Ash's mom comes and tells him she and her neighbors have seen him on TV and support him. Oak sends Krabby, making Ash happy, while Delia advises her son to brush his teeth and go to bed early, so Ash promises to do so.
*Mandi can be a man's name or a woman's name depending on how it's spelled. In this case, Mandi was a man.
 
*This is probably the first time Ash has won a battle in a clean sweep (Meaning without switching his Pokémon).
 
*The announcer describes Ash as "newcomer" and Mandi as "Pokemon League favoruite", suggesting that trainers can enter the Pokémon League more than once. Whether they need to collect badges each time they wish to enter is unknown.
 
*The "Who's that Pokémon?" in this episode is Nidoran.
 
   
==Quotes==

Ash encounters Mandi and greets him, then goes to shake his hand. Mandi refuses and responds his hand is for holding Poké Balls. Misty tells him he should shake his hand, but Mandi leaves, thinking he'll win, but Ash thinks otherwise. Misty still advises Ash to take some of her Pokémon, but Ash refuses. Brock advises him that he should plan which ones to use, while Misty lets him know they want to see him victorious. Suddenly, they see Gary won his first battle. Gary tells the reporter one needs to know which Pokémon to choose, as they can decide whether a person wins or loses, although the first victory is the most important one.

A man's Seaking defeats the opponent's Tentacruel and wins. Ash sees he is next to battle. Misty notices Ash is shaking, but he responds it is the stadium, while Brock thinks he should go for a milkshake. Ash sees his opponent Mandi and lets him know he is not a twerp. Team Rocket tell Ash (via the microphone) that they are on his side today, making the heroes surprised. However, Team Rocket get escorted out of the stadium by many Officer Jenny-s. Ash comments that Team Rocket never change, while Misty thinks the same for Brock, who is charmed by Officer Jenny-s appearances. He knows that he can tell apart which one is which, so Misty pushes him away. Mando sends Exeggutor and Ash his Krabby. Misty advises Ash not to use Krabby, but he knows he has Pikachu and Squirtle as backup. Misty believes he is making a mistake. Brock confirms, but knows they need to leave Ash alone at his decision.

Mandi orders Exeggutor to use Hypnosis, but it walks in circles, attempting to get Krabby down. Krabby uses Leer and defeats Exeggutor with stomping. Ash's Krabby evolves into a Kingler. Mandi thinks he has luck and sends Seadra. Seedra begins with Agility, making Krabby's Water Gun miss. Kingler attempts with Bubble, but still misses. However, Seadra slips away when it touched the bubbles, making Kingler to hit it with Crabhammer and defeat it.

Kingler dives and Golbat takes down, though gets hit by ViceGrip. Golbat goes away from its claw and gets swept away by Razor Wind. Golbat uses Mega Drain, but with a surprising Hyper Beam, Kingler defeats Golbat. Ash is very happy to see he won, while Brock and Misty congratulate him.

SynopsisEdit

Ash's decision has picked a trainer named Mandi. Per Oak's advice, Ash chooses Krabby to battle in first round. Though Mandi's Pokémon corner Krabby, it evolves into a Kingler. Will Ash be able to win his first match in the League?

Episode PlotEdit

At Prof. Oak's lab, the citizens (including the professor and Ash's mum) watch the opening of the League. Delia is happy to see her son on TV. The woman asks for Ash's identifications. Brock flirts with her, but gets pushed away by Misty. He gives her his own Pokédex and confirms that he is the first time in the League. The woman checks his ID and tells he is checked in. Ash asks who will his first opponent be, but Brock clarifies that he needs to win at one of the four fields (grass, rock, ice and water) to be able to continue. Ash asks him how he'd knew that.

The lady tells him he needs to press the button. Upon doing so, the screen displays he'll battle at the Water field with a man named Mandi.

Team Rocket interviews a man to see what Pokémon he has, but they walk away by commenting he has an bugzilla (Venomoth), a three-headed bird (Dodrio) and an overgrown rat (Raticate). Team Rocket go to see if they can snitch a Pokémon or two and see a man who performs magic tricks (which is Mandi, the opponent that will battle Ash). The man introduces himself as Mandi and asks from which channel they are. They respond they are from LCN. Mandi says he only gets interviewed by channels that have viewers and leaves Jessie angered. James and Meowth calm her down, else they would be kicked out of this place.

Misty asks if Ash'd borrow her Pokémon. Ash refuses, as he knows he can use Squrtile for this battle. They encounter Gary, who wants Ash to win the first battle to have the pleasure of defeating Ash himself. Gary sees it is his time to battle and leaves Ash angered by saying that Pallet Town needs at least one good trainer. Ash soon hears he has a call and sees it is Prof. Oak. Oak advises Ash he should switch one of his Pokémon for the battle, as Gary switched two already. Ash sees Krabby and asks if he could get Krabby. Oak goes to get the machine, while Ash's mom comes and tells him she and her neighbors have seen him on TV and support him.
