Aiming to enter the Unova League, Satoshi and his friends continued their journey to Nacrene City where the next Gym is located. Our heroes stop for a short break as they prepare for lunch. Cilan begins preparations for potato salad, explaining that by adding coarse pepper, it will add flavor and produce a truly spicy taste. After completing his masterpiece, Cilan spreads the potato salad on a thin slice of bread and introduces berry slices in between, finishing by adding the top to the sandwich. Cilan begins to explain the delicious mixture created between the two differing textures; however Iris interrupts Cilan’s explanation, biting down into his freshly made sandwich. Cilan suggests that Iris should let him finish his explanation before tasting his food. Iris compliments Cilan on his creation, stating that it is delicious. Cilan questions Iris if she would like to cut the sandwich. Iris responds that it is best uncut, and continues to devour the sandwich. Cilan presents another sandwich to Ash, who quickly snatches and begins eating Cilan’s creation. Ash compliments Cilan on his cooking as well, stating that the sandwiches he makes are the best. Ash questions Pikachu if Cilan’s special Pokémon food is good as well. Pikachu and Axew respond cheerfully, confirming they are also enjoying Cilan’s dish. After a few moments, Axew beings to look off into the distance; staring at a nearby mountainous terrain. Afterwards, Axew descends from the table and escapes into the rocky area. Ash, Iris, and Dent manage to successfully catch up to Axew, and are greeted by a lone Pokémon who is pounding away at a boulder. Cilan identifies the Pokémon as Dwebble, however suggests that it is unusual to see a Dwebble without a rock on its back. Ash ponders to himself about the thought of a Dwebble without a rock on its back, and queries his Zukan for Dwebble’s entry: “Dwebble, the Stone Lodge Pokémon. When it finds a handy rock, it carves out the bottom of the rock and uses it as a substitute for a shell protecting its body.” Iris suggests that Dwebble is in the middle of carving its rock. Cilan confirms that she is correct, stating that they are lucky to be able to witness such a rare event.

Dwebble lifts up the boulder and begins furiously pounding away at the edge in an attempt to craft a work of perfection. Ash stands up to catch a better glimpse, however Iris drags him back down; suggesting that if Dwebble were to notice him, it will run away. Cilan explains that the boulder will also serve as its dwelling in addition to a form of protection. Dwebble begins to secrete a white fluid onto the underside of the stone. Ash queries his Zukan which explains that Dwebble secretes a unique fluid from its mouth to make rocks easier to carve. Dwebble continues to pound away at the stone, carving a sphere from the bottom in which it will use as its dwelling. After countless hours, Dwebble ceases its hard work and begins to walk backwards into the rock’s opening, examining it for any flaws. A few moments later, Dwebble exits the stone and uses its sharp claw to pound away an imperfection it noticed inside of the dwelling. Afterwards, Dwebble re-enters its newly built dwelling and beings moving its rear in an attempt to identify any additional imperfections. Unable to identify any additional flaws, Dwebble lifts the rock atop its body and begins twirling around, excited from having finally completed its masterpiece. Iris suggests that the way Dwebble moves the rock on its back in such a “fluffy” manner is somewhat cute. Seconds later, the terrain begins to shake and three rogue Dwebble confront the wild Dwebble who has just completed its dwelling. Two of the rogue Dwebble dash forward and smash into the defenseless Dwebble who has just completed its home.

The duo continue their onslaught by launching a pair of Slash attacks, however Dwebble uses its newly built rock to encase itself in Protect, successfully reflecting the attacks. The wild Dwebble retaliates with Slash, however the two rouge Dwebble use their dwellings to create a strong barrier which easily deflects Dwebble’s attack. The duo takes advantage of the situation and lunge backwards while Dwebble is airborne; using their rocks to smash into Dwebble. Dwebble smashes into the ground which forces its newly built dwelling to be thrusted from its backside. A larger Dwebble who serves as the two rouge Dwebbles’ leader, retrieves the newly built dwelling and places atop his own. Afterwards, the leader uses its unique fluid to bind the dwelling to the top of its own. Ash shouts out towards the three rogue Dwebble; however they ignore his shouting and burrow deep into the ground. The wild Dwebble begins to dig into the ground in an attempt to catch the escaping trio. Cilan extends his arm launching a Monster Ball, calling upon Pansage. Pansage utilizes its Dig ability to follow after the fleeing Dwebble. After a few moments, Pansage breaks through the hard terrain, returning to Cilan. Cilan questions Pansage how the pursuit turned out; however Pansage sighs, suggesting he was unable to track the fleeing Pokémon. The wild Dwebble interrupts the two, smashing through the surface without a rock on its back, suggesting it also failed to track the rogue Dwebble. Cilan walks over towards the Dwebble, extending his hand in a gesture of friendship and questions if Dwebble was able to get its house back. The wild Dwebble shrieks at the sight of Cilan and begins dashing away in an effort to escape. Our heroes follow closely behind the fleeing Dwebble. Iris utilizes her acrobatic abilities to intercept the Dwebble’s path, suggesting that they mean no harm to it. Dwebble begins fleeing in the opposite direction, however is met by Iris and Ash whom also attempt to extend a hand of friendship. In a frightened state, Dwebble responds with Slash, destroying a nearby boulder which fragments into multiple pieces. One of the fragments smashes into Pansage, knocking him unconscious. Cilan dashes over to Pansage, questioning if he is alright. The wild Dwebble rushes over to Cilan, apologizing for injuring Pansage. Afterwards, Dent applies a Potion to Pansage’s injury. Iris suggests that Pansage doesn’t seem to be seriously hurt. After Cilan successfully applies the Potion, Dwebble steps over towards Pansage and apologizes for injuring him. Ash states that they are aware that Dwebble did not injure Pansage out of malice. Cilan questions if Dwebble was upset because it was unable to reclaim its home. Iris suggests that Dwebble should simply build a new home. Dwebble shakes its head, rejecting Iris’s thoughts of building a new dwelling. Iris questions if Dwebble would like to have the house it built instead. Dwebble bows his head, confirming Iris’s inquiry. Cilan states that after all, Dwebble labored in order to build its dwelling and wants to take it back at all costs. Ash extends his hand of friendship, shouting that they will aid Dwebble in reclaiming its home. Dwebble rejects Ash’s offer, and burrows deep into the terrain. Cilan suggests that they should look for the group of Dwebble that stole its house.

Meanwhile, Flint is adorned in an overcoat, awaiting rendezvous with Jessie and James in a nearby city. Jessie and James arrive at the scene shortly after, and the group escapes into an abandoned area. Jessie questions Flint what the location had been previously used for. Flint explains that it is a platform of a subway station that’s not in use any more. James states that they will be able to trade information without having to worry about their surroundings. Flint presents new data to Jessie and James, stating that their new mission is to gather data concerning the Meteonite; as the data holds the key necessary for the newest project of Team Rocket. Flint reveals his right hand, which contains a miniature projector that is utilized to display the mission data. An image of a strange location is displayed as Flint explains that the objective is located at Antimony Laboratory. Meowth questions if their objective is to sneak in. Flint confirms Meowth’s suggestion, stating that their mission is to steal the data contained within the server computer. Jessie suggests that it sounds like a fun mission. Flint states that it will be used to test their skills.

Our heroes continue their search for the rogue Dwebble, searching the nearby area for any clues. Ash utilizes Pidove to examine the nearby area, however Pidove returns with no results. While PIdove completed her search above ground, Pansage continues to search underground with its Dig ability, however returns to Cilan shortly after, also unable to produce any results. The wild Dwebble breaks through the terrain, sighing at its inability to successfully locate the rogue Dwebble. Cilan suggests that they should have supper and continue their search tomorrow. Cilan extends an invitation to Dwebble to attend supper, who obliges and joins the group. Afterwards, Cilan prepares dishes of Pokémon Food for Pansage, Pikachu, and Dwebble. Ash questions Dwebble how Cilan’s Pokémon food tastes. Dwebble raises its claws in an excited state, suggesting that Cilan’s food is delicious. Moments later, Pansage collapses to the ground, unable to finish his dish. Cilan rushes to Pansage’s aid, questioning what is wrong. Cilan identifies that Pansage has a high fever. Ash questions if it is because Pansage was hit by a stone in the afternoon. Cilan responds that he has no medicine to heal Pansage’s state. Iris suggests that he should leave it to her, as she is knowledgeable about medicinal plants. Iris explains that she had identified several plants that might work as an antipyretic. Iris and Axew escape into the distance and being to gather batches of medicinal plants in preparation for Pansage’s treatment. Afterwards, Iris uses a small bowl to prepare the medicinal plants. Shouting out that she has completed the task, Iris rushes over and administers the treatment to Pansage. Iris explains that Pansage should recover from the fever after a good night’s sleep. Cilan thanks Iris for her actions to heal Pansage. Ash compliments Iris on her abilities, stating that she is amazing.

After successfully administering Pansage’s treatment, our heroes prepare themselves for sleep and fall into a deep slumber. Throughout the night, Dwebble keeps watch over Pansage, concerned about his recovery. Later that night, Cilan awakes to find Dwebble has been watching over Pansage during its slumber. Cilan suggests to Dwebble that since Pansage drank the medicine that Iris had created, Pansage would recover by tomorrow. Cilan states that Dwebble should get some sleep, as he has the task of reclaiming his house in the morning. Dwebble manages to take Cilan’s advice, and curls up beside Pansage, slipping into a deep slumber.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket has successfully reached the research laboratory. Jessie launches a hook over the outer perimeter wall, which secures to the outside, allowing the trio to scale the barrier. Jessie places a set of goggles over her face, which actively analyzes the security features of the structure which includes laser assisted sensors contained at both the front and back entrances. James states that if they were to be caught by the sensors, the alarm would be set off immediately. Jessie states that the amount of security simply shows how important the data they are about to obtain is. Team Rocket descends down from the perimeter wall and successfully infiltrates the facility, avoiding all sensors and gain access to the server room through a maintenance shaft. Jessie examines the server room, suggesting that it is also full of sensors. James reveals a small device featuring a propeller, which descends into the server room and establishes a remote link to the hardware. James utilizes a mobile workstation to access the server’s data, copying the research data to the laptop’s hard drive.

Morning has broken within Unova and Pansage is as exuberant as ever, jumping up and down in an excited state as it has managed to recover from its fever. Cilan states that Pansage’s recovery is to be credited to Iris’s medicinal herbs. Ash responds that there is no longer any need to worry about Pansage’s condition. Axew begins jumping up and down, also excited from Pansage’s recovery. Cilan states that Dwebble had been watching over Pansage throughout the entire night as well. Cilan suggests that it is now Dwebble’s chance to claim back his house. Our heroes return back to the rocky terrain, and are greeted by the three rouge Dwebble. The three Dwebble dash away into the distance in an attempt to escape from their challenger. Axew dashes towards the three Dwebble in pursuit, however is unable to notice the three Dwebble who have successfully camouflaged themselves into the nearby terrain. The three Dwebble finally reveal themselves, as Ash demands for the rouge Dwebble to return the stolen house. Dwebble launches skyward towards the group of Dwebble, however one of the Dwebble utilize their rock housing to smash into Dwebble and thrust him backwards. Iris states that Dwebble is outnumbered three to one. Ash shouts for Pikachu’s aid, however is stopped by Dwebble, who wishes to reclaim the house with its own abilities. Dwebble dashes forward launching Slash, however is struck by a rouge Dwebble’s Slash attack, slamming into a nearby boulder. Ash and Cilan state that since Dwebble does not possess a rock on its back, it is defenseless. Dwebble retaliates with Slash; however a rouge Dwebble shields itself in Protect, successfully thwarting Dwebble’s attack. As Dwebble is thrusted backwards from its failed attempt, another Dwebble successfully utilizes the rock on its back to strike Dwebble, knocking him unconscious. After successfully defeating Dwebble, the three rouge Dwebble burrow into the soft terrain, escaping from the battlefield. Shortly after, Ash lectures Dwebble on its battle strategy, stating that it cannot possibly take on three opponents at the same time. Ash suggests that they will have to split the three rouge Dwebble up in order to grant Dwebble an opportunity to reclaim its home. Cilan states that they will utilize his Pokémon food to split up the three Dwebble.

Afterwards, Cilan prepares three dishes of Pokémon Food, which each are attached via a rope to Pikachu, Axew, and Dwebble. Moments later, the three rouge Dwebble reveal themselves in order to devour the Pokémon Food. Axew, Pikachu, and Dwebble dash away in opposite directions, forcing the rouge Dwebble to split up in order to catch their fleeing meal. After successfully splitting up the three Dwebble, Dwebble uses the opportunity to take the Pokémon by surprise. Dwebble explodes forward with Slash; however the enemy Dwebble overpowers Dwebble with its own Slash. Dwebble begins retreating into the rocky terrain, using it to his advantage. Nearby, a boulder is ledged atop a mountaintop, wedged into place between the mountainside. The enemy Dwebble launches X-Scissor, smashing into the mountainside. Moments later, the energy from Dwebble’s attack forces the boulder to careen down the cliff, which slams into the enemy Dwebble launching it skyward. Dwebble retaliates with an onslaught of X-Scissor and Slash, successfully knocking the enemy Dwebble unconscious. Cilan suggests that X-Scissor and Slash is a spicy move combination. Dwebble successfully locates the 2nd enemy Dwebble, who has been pursing Axew. Dwebble dashes forward with Slash, smashing into the terrain, however the enemy Dwebble thrusts itself backward, attempting to use its rock structure to strike Dwebble. Dwebble successfully avoids the attack, causing the enemy Dwebble to wedge itself between two cliffs. Dwebble takes advantage of the enemy Dwebble’s immobility, striking forward with X-Scissor and knocking the 2nd enemy Dwebble unconscious.

Successfully defeating two foes, Dwebble confronts the boss Dwebble, who is busily devouring Dent’s Pokémon Food. The enemy Dwebble turns around, looking back and forth, realizing that its two comrades are nowhere to be found. After realizing its allies have been defeated, the enemy prepares for battle, turning in a 180-degree motion. The rouge Dwebble thrusts itself backward, using its rock structure as a weapon. Dwebble retaliates with Slash; however the enemy Dwebble rotates its back, using Dwebble’s stolen rock structure as a shield. Dwebble stops the attack midair, preventing itself from striking its own house. Ash questions why Dwebble had stopped the attack. Cilan responds that Dwebble cannot use attacks on the house it built on its own. The rouge Dwebble retaliates with Smack Down, successful striking Dwebble and thrusting him backwards into the hard terrain. Dwebble recovers from the attack and escapes into the rocky terrain. The enemy Dwebble follows after, however is unable to traverse the terrain and becomes wedged between a nearby rock structure. Dwebble takes advantage of the opportunity and successfully strikes the enemy with X-Scissor. The rouge retaliates with Slash, striking Dwebble and knocking him backwards. After a few moments, Dwebble’s outer armor glimmers in a bright light and shatters. Cilan identifies the ability as Shell Smash, stating that it is a move that discards the defense and raises one’s attack power. Dwebble utilizes its raises attack power to smash through the enemy’s rock structure, releasing its stolen house the enemy’s grasp. Now defenseless, the enemy Dwebble burrows into the terrain, escaping from the battlefield. After successfully defeating its foe, Dwebble walks over and recovers its home.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket returns to the abandoned subway station, rendezvousing with Flint. Jessie presents the stolen data to Flint, stating they successfully recovered the data on the Meteonite that Giovanni had requested. Flint responds that he had expected nothing less of the advance unit which promptly infiltrated the Unova Region. Flint states that Team Rocket shout wait for their next orders.

Afterwards, our heroes wish the wild Dwebble success on its travels and prepare for departure. As Ash, Iris, and Cilan begin walking away, Dwebble follows afterwards, shouting for Cilan’s attention. Iris suggests that Dwebble could possibly want to travel with Cilan. Cilan questions Dwebble if Iris is correct, who responds by shaking its head up and down. Cilan ponders on the thought, stating that the kind of flavor that Dwebble exhibited by taking care of Pansage and reclaiming its own home are perfect traits in a Pokémon. Cilan thrusts an empty Monster Ball skyward, which successfully captures Dwebble’s essence.

With that, Cilan has obtained a new friend, Dwebble. Aiming for the Unova League, Ash and his friends continue their journey.

А Сайлан рассказывает Эшу и Ирис о том, что панцирь будет для Двебла еще и домом. Внезапно появляются еще три Двебла и крадут только что найденный дом. Наши герои пытаются подружиться с несчастным Двеблом, но это не так-то просто. Он даже нечаянно ранит Пансейджа во время одной из атак. Но после этого приносит свои извинения. После этого наши герои решают помочь Двеблу вернуть свой дом. Но это непросто. Начинается битва три на одного. Герои разделяют соперников Двебла, и он героически побеждает каждого из них по отдельности. Герои прощаются с Двеблом, но он обращается к Сайлану и дает понять, что хочет идти с ними. Итак, теперь у героев есть новый друг! Тем временем, Команда Р удачно выполняет свою миссию. Ее члены проникают в лабораторию и крадут данные о загадочном веществе, метеоните.

Dutch Official Summary

Als onze helden een lunchpauze houden onderweg naar de Nacrene City Gym, zien ze een uiterst ongewone Pokémon, Dwebble. Ongewoon, omdat hij nog geen steen op zijn rug heeft om zichzelf te beschermen tegen vijanden. Terwijl ze kijken hoe Dwebble aan de slag gaat om een steen uit te zoeken, vertelt Cilan Ash en Iris dat de steen ook gebruikt zal worden als huisje. Plotseling, nadat hij een geschikte steen heeft gevonden, verschijnen er drie andere Dwebble en stelen de steen! En hoewel onze helden proberen vrienden te worden met de getroffen Dwebble, blijkt dit geen makkelijke opgave te zijn! Maar als Dwebble een tegenaanval begint en per ongeluk Pansage raakt en verwondt, voelt Dwebble zich slecht om wat er is gebeurd en neemt het aanbod om vrienden te worden met onze helden aan. Dwebble wil de andere drie Dwebble vinden en zijn huisje terughalen, wat ook geen makkelijke opgave blijkt te zijn, aangezien het drie tegen een wordt. Maar als onze helden Dwebble helpen om de drie Dwebble huizendieven van elkaar te scheiden, blijkt de getroffen Dwebble sterk en dapper te zijn en het stelende Pokémon trio te verslaan. Dwebble is tevreden, met zijn huis op zijn rug, en onze helden nemen afscheid van hem, maar Dwebble laat Cilan weten dat hij met ze mee wil gaan. En dus verlaten wij onze helden met een gloednieuw lid van de familie, terwijl zij hun reis naar de Nacrene City Gym vervolgen. Ondertussen heeft Team Rocket tijdens al deze gebeurtenissen de nieuwste missie volbracht; inbreken in het Antimony Research Lab en de data stelen die betrekking hebben op de Meteoniet…

Norwegian Official Summary

Mens våre helter tar en lunsjpause på vei til Nacrene City-gym, ser de en svært uvanlig Pokémon, Dwebble – uvanlig fordi den ikke har en stein på ryggen som beskytter den mot fiender – enda. Mens de ser på at Dwebble skaffer seg en slik stein, forteller Cilan Ash og Iris at den steinen også vil bli brukt som hjemmet dens. Plutselig, etter at den har funnet en passende stein, dukker tre andre Dwebble opp og stjeler den! Og selv om våre helter prøver å bli venner med den stakkars Dwebble, viser det seg å være vanskelig. Men når Dwebble angriper våre helter og ved et uhell treffer og skader Pansage, får Dwebble dårlig samvittighet og tar imot våre helters tilbud om vennskap. De bestemmer seg for at Dwebble skal finne de andre tre Dwebble og få tilbake huset sitt, og det er heller ingen lett jobb, siden det er en tre mot en kamp! Men når våre helter hjelper Dwebble å skille de tre Dwebble-hustyvene, viser den husløse Dwebble seg å være modig og sterk, og slå trioen av tyvaktige Pokémon. Fornøyd med å ha fått hjemmet sitt tilbake, sier Dwebble og våre helter adjø, men Dwebble forteller Cilan at den vil bli med dem! Så vi forlater våre helter med et nytt medlem av familien, når de fortsetter mot Nacrene City-gym. I mellomtiden... mens alt dette har foregått, har Team Rocket fullført sitt siste oppdrag, å bryte seg inn i Antimony forskningslab og stjele all data om meteonitt...

Swedish Official Summary

Medan våra hjältar tar lunchpaus på sin väg mot Nacrene City-gym, ser de en högst ovanlig Pokémon, Dwebble. Ovanlig för att den inte har en sten på sin rygg för att skydda sig själv från fiender... än. Medan de tittar på när Dwebble jobbar för att skaffa sig just det, berättar Cilan för Ash och Iris att stenen även kommer att användas som dess hem. När den framgångsrikt har hittat en passande sten, dyker det plötsligt upp tre andra Dwebble som stjäler den! Och även om våra hjältar försöker bli vän med den drabbade Dwebble, visar det sig vara en svår uppgift. Men när Dwebble attackerar dem tillbaka och av misstag råkar träffa och skada Pansage, mår Dwebble dåligt över det som hänt och nappar på våra hjältars erbjudande om vänskap. Det beslutas att Dwebble ska hitta de andra tre Dwebble och ta tillbaka sitt hus, men även det visar sig bli en svår uppgift, eftersom det blir en tre-mot-en-strid. Men när våra hjältar hjälper Dwebble att dela på de tre Dwebble-hustjuvarna, visar sig den drabbade Dwebble vara stark och modig och besegrar trion av stjälande Pokémon. Med sitt hem glatt på ryggen bjuder våra hjältar Dwebble ett ömt farväl, men Dwebble låter Cilan veta att han gärna följer med dem! Och så lämnar vi våra hjältar med en helt ny medlem i familjen, medan de fortsätter sin resa mot Nacrene City-gym. Medan allt detta har pågått har Team Rocket framgångsrikt fullföljt sitt senaste uppdrag – att bryta sin in i Antimon forskningslabb och stjäla all information om meteoniten...

Danish Official Summary

Da vores helte holder frokostpause på vej mod Nacrene City-salen, får de øje på en højst usædvanlig Pokémon, Dwebble – usædvanlig, fordi den ikke har en sten på ryggen til at beskytte sig mod fjender med – endnu. De ser til, da Dwebble går i gang med at finde én, mens Cilan fortæller Ash og Iris, at stenen også skal fungere som dens bolig. Dwebble har netop været heldig at finde en passende sten, da tre andre Dwebble pludselig dukker op og stjæler den! Vores helte forsøger at blive gode venner med den bestjålede Dwebble, men det er ikke så let. Men da Dwebble går til angreb og ved et tilfælde kommer til at ramme og såre Pansage, bliver Dwebble ked af det, der er sket, og tager alligevel imod tilbuddet om venskab. Da den ene Dwebble beslutter at finde de tre andre Dwebble og få sit hus tilbage, viser det sig heller ikke at være en let opgave, da de jo er tre mod en! Men da vores helte hjælper Dwebble med at skille de tre tyvagtige Dwebble ad, viser den bestjålede Dwebble sig at være stærk og tapper, og snart har den besejret de tre forbryderiske Pokémon. Den er lykkelig for nu at have sit hjem på ryggen, og vores helte skal lige til at tage hjertelig afsked med den glade Dwebble, da den lader Cilan forstå, at den gerne vil rejse med dem! Så da vi forlader vores helte har de fået et helt nyt medlem af familien med på deres videre færd mod Nacrene City-salen. Samtidig med disse begivenheder, har Team Rocket med held fuldført deres seneste opgave: at bryde ind i Antimony forskningslaboratoium og stjæle alle data vedrørende meteoniten..!

Script Error

The Japanese narrator says nothing about lunch or a treat like the English dub narrator does.

Narrator: As the Unova League journey to Nacrene City continues, a riverside lunch provides our heroes with a delectable gourmet treat.
Narrator Japanese Translation: Aiming to enter the Isshu League, Satoshi and his friends continue their journey to Shippo City where the next Gym is located.
(ナレーター): イッシュリーグ出場を目指すサトシたちは次のジムがある シッポウシティに向け旅を続けていた

Script Error

Satoshi in the Japanese original asks Pikachu about the 'Pokémon food' (ポケモンフーズ) whereas Ash just calls it 'Cilan's cooking', completely ignoring the fact that it was food specifically made for the Pokémon.

Ash: Hey, Pikachu, so what do you think of Cilan's cooking anyway?
Satoshi: Pikachu, is Dent's special Pokémon food good?
(サトシ): デント特製ポケモンフーズは うまいか?

Script Error

Iris in the Japanese original calls the movements that Ishizumai's rock makes 'fluffy'. Iris in the English dub doesn't say anything about Dwebble's rock and says it looks like a moving cream puff?!

Iris English Dub: Looks like a little moving cream puff! It's so cute!
Iris Japanese Translation: The way the rock on its back moves in such a fluffy manner is somewhat cute!
(アイリス): 背中の岩が モコモコ動いてなんか かわいい!

This episode was pretty interesting but it felt really short. It was pretty cool that the group of Ishizumai was all bigger than the one being bullied since usually they would be shown as the same size. Shell smash was an interesting attack but I don't know how Ishizumai did it seeing as it didn't have a shell in the first place.
The techniques the Ishizumai used to defeat the others were creative as well. The way it utilized the surrounding terrain to its advantage reminded me of Ash.
It was also pretty cool that Dent caught a Pokémon. That leaves only Iris who has yet to catch a Pokémon. I hope that we can see Ishizumai battle again sometime.

The episode started off rough with a few glaring edits but overall the rest of the episode was pretty much the same as the Japanese original. There really wasn't anything in this episode though that would really have any significant changes though as its a straight forward episode.
