* This is the first time we see Nurse Joy in a different outfit other than her nurses uniform.
+
As the heroes enjoy a sunny day (being carried by Lapras through the islands), they get soaked when a boat passes in a hurry. Misty is annoyed, but they see the island, so they go to check it out. Ash calls Lapras back and hear a reporter, telling that a team is going to uncover the Kabuto mystery. The heroes follow the reporter and find out the team has uncovered a Kabuto fossil. The reporter talks with the chief in expedition, much to the heroes's surprise, Nurse Joy. Nurse Joy explaines that Kabuto have oil that brings good health and may bring to a person immortality. Hearing this, Tracey and Ash want toi help her out. Nurse Joy accepts, then Tracey and Ash turn to the camera, greeting Oak and Ash's mom, though Ash gets restrained.
* Despite having already encountered Kabutos in Kanto, neither Ash or Misty ever mentions this. They even react with shock at the idea of fossilized Kabutos.
+
* Dexter refers to Kabuto as being "believed to be extinct", despite being present when Ash previously encountered living Kabutos.
+
Team Rocket are in the submarine and Jessie wonders what is a TV crew doing here. Meowth tells they can capture Pikachu and be on TV a while, pleasing Jessie. The heroes go with the archaeologists to explore these fossils, while a mysterious man watches them. As the heroes wander through the mountains, James lags behind Jessie and Meowth, bringing a large backpack. Suddenly, the Growlithe are stopped and growl. The large boulder comes down, so the crew escapes it. Ash tells Nurse Joy to order Machoke to stop it. Nurse Joy does that, so Machoke push the boulder down the cliff. This causes the boulder to fall on James, who falls down with it. As the expedition continues, Pikachu notices something, but there is nothing behind some rocks, though the mysterious man watches.
* Apparently Professor Oak does not share the information collected from his trainer's Pokedexs, as everyone believed Kabuto to be still extinct. Had he done so, the entire expedition would have been pointless.
+
* The "Who's that Pokémon?" in this episode is ponyta.
+
The expedition led everyone to a bay. The Pokémon and people begin digging out. Ash knows the result will be pleasing, but suddenly, rocks are falling down from a cliff. One rock almost falls on the TV crew, but Rhydon stops it using Horn Drill. Misty begins to feel there is someone who does not want them around, although Tracey knows the island is deserted. Pikachu saw something and runs to it, with Ash following him. Ash sees someone and takes a shortcut, then tackles the man. The man stands up and orders them to leave the island. The archaeologists, including Tracey and Misty appear. The man clarifies he is the one dropping the boulders, telling he is doing them a favor. The heroes are angered at this response, but the man tells he is protecting them all from danger.
* The idea of an island made of fossils isn't far fetched, no pun intended, the coral reefs take 10,000 years to form. Coral atoll, coral islands, can take up to 30 million years to form. Since Kabutos went extinct 300 million years ago it makes sense that a large island has formed from the fossils that were there.
+
* It seems from previous episodes and this episode that ancient pokemon appear to have some sort of hibernation ability on a level of stasis where their bodies don't decay or degrade in any way even for millions of years. However it appears inorder to avoid damage the ancient pokemon hibernate in caves for protection and the fact that caves climate stay the same even for millions of years unless geological activity or humans change the cave.   
+
Using the reporter's microphone, the man tells that the prophecy will be fufilled; if the island is disturbed, the moon will glow red and the land will be overflowed by the sea. Misty does not see they caused damage, as the man itself has been disturbing by bringing the boulders down. Nurse Joy tells the man they tried to learn more from Kabuto fossils, but the man is persistent, wanting them to go away. An archaeologist appears, telling a Kabuto fossil has been found, so they go to it. In the cave, Nurse Joy confirms that it is Kabuto. Tracey sees more fossils, so Nurse Joy now knows the walls are Kabuto fossils. The archaeologist goes to get a Rhydon to dig out, but the man from before stops him. Suddenly, the cave begins to shake, as Team Rocket emerge.
  +
  +
Team Rocket are warned by the man a disaster will befall them all if the fossils are taken. Team Rocket throw the bomb (which gets bounced off) and Ash drops it. The bomb explodes and the fossils fall down, only to be collected by Team Rocket, who go off. Suddenly, a red moon appears. The fossils turn into Kabuto themselves, both in the ballon and underground. The Kabuto awaken and gnaw at the TV reporter's camera. Team Rocket's balloon is pierced by one of the Kabuto and they blast off. The heroes go out and feel the ground shaking. Nurse Joy knows the island WILL sink.
  +
  +
The man knows rafts can be build to avoid this disaster. Seeing the water approaching, they begin to build the raft. The water rises, so Ash sends Squrtile and Lapras, while Misty Goldeen and Staryu, then attach the rope to them. The heroes manage to escape the island, which sinks with a final shake. The heroes see the truth behind the prophecy, as Nurse Joy apologises to the man. The reporter agrees it is best the world does not know about this incident. They see Kabuto departing, with Tracey believing they are searching for a new home. Ash hopes they do.

Shell Shock! (Japanese: カブトのかせきのひみつ! Secret of Kabuto's Fossil!) is the 8th episode of Pokémon: Adventures in the Orange Islands.

SynopsisEdit

Aboard Lapras, the group follows a news crew to an uninhabited island, where a scientific expedition is underway after the discovery of a fossilized Kabuto. A series of natural disasters place our heroes in mortal danger, with only the power of their Pokémon to help them. What is the secret of the Kabuto, and who wants that secret to remain hidden?

Episode PlotEdit

As the heroes enjoy a sunny day (being carried by Lapras through the islands), they get soaked when a boat passes in a hurry. Misty is annoyed, but they see the island, so they go to check it out. Ash calls Lapras back and hear a reporter, telling that a team is going to uncover the Kabuto mystery. The heroes follow the reporter and find out the team has uncovered a Kabuto fossil. The reporter talks with the chief in expedition, much to the heroes's surprise, Nurse Joy. Nurse Joy explaines that Kabuto have oil that brings good health and may bring to a person immortality. Hearing this, Tracey and Ash want toi help her out. Nurse Joy accepts, then Tracey and Ash turn to the camera, greeting Oak and Ash's mom, though Ash gets restrained.

Team Rocket are in the submarine and Jessie wonders what is a TV crew doing here. Meowth tells they can capture Pikachu and be on TV a while, pleasing Jessie. The heroes go with the archaeologists to explore these fossils, while a mysterious man watches them. As the heroes wander through the mountains, James lags behind Jessie and Meowth, bringing a large backpack. Suddenly, the Growlithe are stopped and growl. The large boulder comes down, so the crew escapes it. Ash tells Nurse Joy to order Machoke to stop it. Nurse Joy does that, so Machoke push the boulder down the cliff. This causes the boulder to fall on James, who falls down with it. As the expedition continues, Pikachu notices something, but there is nothing behind some rocks, though the mysterious man watches.

The expedition led everyone to a bay. The Pokémon and people begin digging out. Ash knows the result will be pleasing, but suddenly, rocks are falling down from a cliff.
