Pokémon: Master Quest

Great Bowls of Fire! (Japanese: カイリュー!げきりんはつどう! Dragonite! The Outrage Motion!) is the 44th episode of Pokémon: Master Quest.


Ash and co. meet mysterious Pokémon, which turns out to be Ash's Charizard. They are also met by their old friend Liza from Charicific Valley, and Charla as well. After explaining the situation, Liza agrees to help them. Elsewhere, Team Rocket makes another attempt to steal something valuable: The Prayer Flame. However, after this attempt is botched, the Dragonite Guardian realizes this truth: "The true descendants would never attempt to destroy this place or steal the Prayer Flame!" and attacks them. However, after a while, Dragonite accidentally used Outrage to confused itself. Can Ash and co. subdue the Dragonite and save the Holy Land at the same time?

Episode Plot

Ash sees that figure is Charizard, who greets him by using Flamethrower. Liza also appears, so Ash and Clair greet her. Brock tries to flirt with her, but Misty shushes him. Cliar tells them she knows Liza since they were little and now brings Charizard here to train. Clair notices now Ash's Charizard wants to be Charla's bodyguard. Liza wants to know if Ash won the Gym Battle against Clair. Ash tells they had to cancel it due to some trouble. Dragonite carries Team Rocket away and Meowth translates it is carrying them to a nice place.

Liza is told about the trouble, so she and Charizard will try to help in this situation. The Charizard pull small balloons, so the heroes see the beautiful valley. They are told that the dragons may have a strange power in preserving this place. The old man tells them that even if the first Gym Leader, whose Dragonite was his partner, passed on, Dragonite still preserves this place. Team Rocket have landed, though they don't feel very well. Dragonite comes and gives them fruit to eat, making Team Rocket very happy for that. They notice an entrance to a temple, to a vault, so they plan to take everything stored inside.

The old man worries Team Rocket might've entered the Dragon Shrine. The people believed that humans and Pokémon could live in peace, so the shrine was built for that idea and it stores the Prayer Flame, which burns over 500 years. Jessie sees the bowl is solid gold, but James tells her and Meowth not to douse the flame, as it is more worth that way. James puts his protective gear on, then takes the bowl. However, he gets burned a bit by the flames and tosses the bowl away, onto the field, causing a fire. Team Rocket is surprised and frightened, as Dragonite appears before them. It blows them away, then uses Hyper Beam to blow them out.

The fire still burns, so the heroes, Clair, Liza and the old man see the smoke and speed up. Dragonite uses Hyper Beam, but Wobbuffet sends the attack back to Dragonite, sending it in flames. However, Dragonite emerges, angrier than ever and uses Hyper Beam, but Charizard's Flamethrower stops the attack. Clair sends Dragonair, who uses Rain Dance to douse the flames. Misty, Brock and Liza try to lead the Pokémon away from the fire. Brock sends Geodude and Onix, the latter using Rock Throw to stop the fire, while Geodude saves the Pokémon. Misty sends Politoed and Staryu, who use Water Gun to stop the fire. Meanwhile, Charizard faces Dragonite. Team Rocket is grateful, so the old man takes the Dragon Fang away. Clair tries to calm down Dragonite, who does not listen and uses Hyper Beam.

Charizard uses Flamethrower to counter it, but Clair is still blown away. The old man thinks Dragonite is suffering from Outrage, so it blows Dragonair away. Pikachu attempts to use Thunder, but gets hit by Dragonite's tail. Dragonite goes to attack, but gets tackled by Charizard. Ash tries to reason with Dragonite, so the old man thinks something bad happened for Dragonite to act this way. James asks what happened to the bowl. Seeing they need to return the flame, Misty's Politoed uses Water Gun to stop the fire on the shrine. Charizard uses Flamethrower, hitting Dragontie, causing it to fall into the lake. Dragonite comes out and uses Hyper Beam on Ash, though Dragonair's Safeguard stops the attack.

Dragonair tries to bind Dragonite, who gets out. Charizard uses Flamethrower and Dragonair Hyper Beam, but after the attack, Dragonite is even more angry, who tosses Dragonair away. Charizard tries to use Seismic Toss, but gets hit and falls to the ground. Clair sees they need a good strategy to stop Dragonite's confusion and thinks Pikachu should be used, though Dragonite needs to stand still. Dragonair summons a thunderstorm and Charizard uses Flamethrower, which gets repelled. Dragonite gets hit by lightning. Pikachu uses Thunder, making additional damage. Dragonite uses Hyper Beam, so Charizard uses Fire Spin to counter it. This causes too much damage, so Dragonite falls into the lake.

Dragonite emerges, but Clair notices it is not angry nor confused anymore. However, seeing the burned land, it cries out. However, the Pokémon of the valley try to comfort it. Team Rocket departs away with the Dragon Fang, but Pikachu's Thunderbolt blasts them off. Ash takes the Dragon Fang back. Later, the Prayer Flame is back in its place. The old man admires Dragonite's growth, but does not want to "dragon this thing out". However, he notices everyone gone. Clair thanks the heroes and Ash asks about the Gym Battle. Clair tells he can battle tomorrow with her, after some rest. Charizard uses Flamethrower on Ash, making Liza believe that was a good-luck kiss.
