After finally arriving in Azalea Town, Ash can finally have his Gym battle, if only the gym weren't closed thanks to the recent drought. Then Ash makes the mistake of stepping on a Slowpoke's tail, which angers the townspeople since they believe that Slowpoke are as sacred as the cows of India. An elderly man in a Slowpoke costume gives out costumes to Ash and friends to give the townspeople the slip. Who is this old man, and where is Kurt, the guy Ash was supposed to give the GS Ball to?
