Pokémon: The Johto Journeys


Still on their way to Goldenrod City, Ash and friends find themselves in a forest. They notice a birdhouse and a Noctowl being shooed away. Another Noctowl comes by, only this one is a different color and smaller than a normal Noctowl. The Noctowl pecks out the man hiding in the tree. He introduces himself to Ash and friends as Dr. Wiseman, collector of Rare Pokémon, like the shiny Noctowl. Dr. Wiseman says that the Noctowl in question always outsmarts him every time he tries to catch it. Later, Team Rocket enters the scene with their own plans for Noctowl. Can Ash be able to save it? And why does Meowth always break the fourth wall?


  • This episode is the first to debut true, shiny Pokémon.
  • This is yet another episode where Meowth breaks the fourth wall.


  • The Poké Balls which Cyndaquil and Totodile popped out of were switched.


  • "Meowth, that's right! And we're gonna capture that colorful Noctowl, right after we get back from the next commercial."

Meowth finishing the motto and breaking the fourth wall.
