Pokémon: The Johto Journeys


Still on their way to Goldenrod City, our heroes meet Cherry, a girl with a Psychic Pokémon named Girafarig. After they have lunch she challenges Ash to a battle and he accepts. During the battle, Ash is introduced to an attack called Future Sight, which strikes in the future. Ash is impressed by the attack, but Pikachu manages to overpower Girafarig and win the battle for Ash. Later, Team Rocket appears with a brand new weapon: a self-powered Gengar mech with mirror eyes to reflect Psychic attacks. Can Cherry unlock her latent powers and stop Team Rocket?
