Pokémon: Master Quest


Whilst heading to Blackthorn City, Ash and co. spot a trainer battling with his Poliwrath. After seeing it battle, Ash wants a go, but Misty intervenes. After the battle Misty gets her Pokémon healed and Poliwhirl takes Ash's King's Rock. After the second battle the trainer introduces himself as Delaney, and a while after that he is tricked by Jessie, disguised as a fortune teller. Can Ash and co. help Delaney get his Poliwrath back, and is there more than one way to make a Poliwhirl evolve?


  • Politoed


  • In the games, a player has to trade a Poliwhirl while it holds a King's Rock. In this episode however, it evolved without Misty trading Poliwhirl.
  • In the French version, this episode is called "Predictions".
  • This marks the first time that a battle with a opponent ended in a draw for Ash.
  • The "Who's that Pokémon?" is Pinsir.
  • The US air was just 1 day away from celebrating the 7th Annivesary of the crash of ValueJet Flight 592.


When Ash reads the name of the title card he says "furtunes".
