{{nihongo|The Legend of Thunder! (Part 2)|ポケットモンスタークリスタル・ライコウ 雷の伝説|Pokémon: Crystal Raikou - The Legend of Thunder!}} is the 2nd episode of [[Pokémon Chronicles]].
   
Jimmy has confronted Team Rocket agents Atilla and Hun who are about to capture Raikou with the help of the electricity-absorbing Miracle Crystal device. Atilla and Hun send out Skarmory and Steelix, catching Typhlosion in a Sandstorm attack and hitting it with Steel Wing. Marina sends in her Misdreavus for support and Jimmy sends his Beedrill to damage Atilla's capturing robot. Team Rocket finally retreats, leaving behind the injured Raikou. But even though Jimmy just wants to help, Raikou won't let anyone get close until it finally collapses and is taken to the Pokemon Center.

==Episode Plot==
  +
Jimmy chose to fight Team Rocket. Typhlosion uses Flamethrower, but Steelix uses Sandstorm, negating the attack and hitting Typhlosion. Jimmy is counting on Typhlosion, as they have to save Raikou. Typhlosion makes some steps towards Steelix, although Skarmory uses Steel Wing, hitting Typhlosion, hitting it badly. Since the battle is over for Jimmy, Attila powers the machine, using the crystal to emit electricity to hurt Raikou badly. Marina sends Little Miss, so Steelix goes to use Bite. However, Little Miss uses Perish Song, which hurts Steelix and Skarmory, but also the user, Misdreavus. Attila goes after Raikou, so Jimmy sends Beedrill, who damages the machine using Pin Missile. Seeing they can't transport Raikou, Hun and Attila decide to retreat. Attila releases smoke, and after the smoke clears, they are gone.
   
Even at the Pokemon Center, Raikou resents being in captivity. A strange man in a cape runs in to see Raikou for himself--his name is Eugene, and although he promises to help protect Raikou, he knows it's suspicious of people. In fact, the next morning, Raikou breaks out of the Center as soon as it wakes up and Eugene grabs Jimmy and Marina to follow it in his car. Team Rocket has set up another Miracle Crystal trap and Raikou is headed straight for it! Hun uses Steelix to provoke Raikou into using up even more electrical energy, but Jimmy, Marina and Eugene are soon on the scene.
+
Jimmy notices Raikou is left on the floor. Marina holds Little Miss, while Raikou stands up and attempts to leave. Jimmy goes after Raikou, claiming they can save it. Raikou, however, does not trust Jimmy and emits sparks, which hit Jimmy. Jimmy tries to help Raikou, who attacks, but the attack is countered by Typhlosion, who protects Jimmy. Typhlosion attacks, but Jimmy stops Typhlosion, since Raikou thinks they are its enemies. Jimmy approaches Raikou, claiming he won't hurt it. Raikou emits a lightning bolt, missing Jimmy, who is not afraid. Raikou looks Jimmy and falls down from exhaustion. At the Pokémon Center, Marina contacts Prof. Elm, who thinks Raikou may not heal properly if being inside the Pokémon Center. Marina thinks she should sing to Raikou, an idea which Elm approves of. Inside the Center, Jimmy watches as Raikou gets healed by Nurse Joy, even if Jimmy is worried-
   
Steelix turns its attacks on the Trainers, but Jimmy and Marina's friend Vincent appears and saves the day with his Meganium. The Crystal's absorption powers have exhausted Raikou, but Typhlosion, Meganium and Misdreavus can disrupt the Crystal's energy field if they all attack it at once. Despite their efforts, Atilla grabs Raikou and Team Rocket takes off. When the dust settles, Marina is missing as well! She was grabbed by accident and now she's with Raikou in the cargo hold of Team Rocket's ship. When Raikou's struggles dislodge a floor panel, Marina disrupts the ship's wiring and opens the cargo hold doors. Raikou escapes, but Marina is still inside the ship... and Team Rocket knows exactly what's going on!
+
Elsewhere, Attila is annoyed by the fact they were stopped by two twerps, since they could shoot out lightnings at their command. Hun doubts Attila, since she notices Raikou did still have some energy to fight back, considering it is a Legendary Pokémon. Attila proposes to strike Raikou harder next time, but Hun thinks they have to be smarter about it, by planting a trap. Jimmy watches Raikou and is visited by Marina, who thinks life is too short to gloom over. Marina gives Jimmy a drink, asking how Raikou is. Jimmy reports Raikou is asleep, though Marina is glad they saved it, as well as how awesome Jimmy and Typhlosion were looking. Suddenly, Eusine arrives, who looks Raikou and is fascinated *it* is here, before his eyes.

Marina knocks Jimmy away, finding Eusine cute and asking what is his name. Eusine, however, notices Officer Jenny and a man named Kudo, who have appeared. Kudo introduces himself as an archaeologist, while Eusine as a scientist, causing Marina to be fascinated by the latter. Eusine explains Raikou is a Legendary Pokémon, which wants to be free. However, this also causes men like Team Rocket to increase their interest in catching Raikou, for they believe they will control thunder itself. And it is the reason why Raikou does not trust humans, hence why it attacked Jimmy. Marina worries Jimmy might've been hurt, but Jimmy believes Raikou knows who its allies and enemies are. Officer Jenny believes Team Rocket wants to catch Raikou to take over the world. They all agree Raikou belongs to the wild and must not be captured by Team Rocket.
  +
  +
During the morning, Raikou wakes up, feeling recharged. Raikou emits electricity, which causes the window to crash and Jimmy to wake up. Jimmy notices Raikou is feeling much better, though Raikou attacks Jimmy. Others arrive and watch as Raikou blasts out a wall, trying to escape. Jimmy warns Raikou it is not fully recovered, but Marina notices the black clouds arriving. Eusine asks Jimmy and Marina to come with him into the car and orders Kudo to call Officer Jenny. While thunder is striking, Hun and Attila are waiting. Raikou appears and Hun claims they are its new masters. Raikou looks at the crystal and strikes with thunder. Hu sends Steelix. Raikou uses Thunder to attack Steelix, though the crystal redirects the electricity. Steelix uses Dig, hitting Raikou. Marina, Jimmy and Eusine arrive and seeing Raikou, Jimmy demands to know what they did to Raikou. Hun replies they softened it a bit before they can catch it.
  +
  +
Jimmy wants to know why they don't at least fight Raikou in a fair battle. Hun claims the goals of Team Rocket are much important than a minor battle. Jimmy claims it is wrong to hurt Raikou and misuse it. Attila replies they do what all Pokémon trainers do, angering Jimmy, since a proper trainer would treat with respect, intention to learn and with love to Pokémon. Jimmy promises to protect Raikou, amusing Hun and Attila, who promise to squish him. Raikou leaps and gets hit by the crystal's electricity. Steelix uses Rock Throw, which is to land on Jimmy and Marina. However, the rocks are being shattered by Solar Beam, as Jackson and Meganium have arrived. Meganium repeats the attack, though Steelix endures it and attacks, but misses Jackson and Meganium. Steelix uses Iron Tail, so Eusine goes to send a Pokémon, but gets hit by Rock Throw. Raikou is hurt by the crystal's electricity, wounding it badly. Attila activates the shield, causing the crystal to touch Raikou and hurt it badly. However, Jimmy's Typhlosion uses Flamethrower on the shell, displeasing Attila, who knows well the shell does not support other forms of energy. Little Miss uses Psybeam, pushing back the shell, along with Meganium's Solar Beam.
  +
  +
The shell collapses, knocking Raikou onto Marina. Hun takes Raikou and places it into the chamber and they soon retreat. Jimmy is frustrated Raikou has been captured, while Jackson claims Marina is gone. Hun and Attila are glad Raikou is captured, but notice they also got the girl as well. Marina yells, while Raikou emits electricity, though the walls are electric-proof. Instead, Raikou tackles the walls, so Marina claims they have to think through. Raikou, by accident, pushes off a piece of floor, revealing wires. Marina pulls them, which open the door. Hun and Attila immediately switch on the controls, which start closing the door. Raikou stands still, though Marina pushes it, claiming she will be fine. Raikou jumps, while the door closes, with Marina inside.
