Pokémon: Master Quest


Still on the road to Blackthorn City, Ash and co. encounter Team Rocket again. Just as they were about to battle a Slowpoke with a yellow flag comes in and sits on a rock. Then a young nun comes in and tells both sides that they're trespassing on Slowpoke's favorite spot. But she forgives them saying there was no harm done and she introduces herself as Madeleine. She is a student who studies a Slowpoke-based religion on seeking enlightenment and always the one to try something new, Ash and co. decide to try it. Will they be able to find inner peace, and why is Delibird here?


  • Buddhism was the inspiration for Slowpoke religion.
    • Even though there are no nuns in Buddhism, Madeleine was still a nun as a religious symbol.
  • Upon entering the temple, everyone has to strip off their shoes and socks out of respect. As a result, Ash, Misty, Brock, Jesse and James spend the majority of the episode barefoot.


  • Brock said Flint City was his hometown.
