"Clefairy! Clefairy!" I still chant that every so often. It's definitely a catchy spot in this episode. The professor has been studying Pokemon too long and is a bit wacky. Think he needs to spend less time working and a bit more time doing other things.

"Clefairy! Clefairy!" I still hear that in my sleep. This episode haunts me. I find myself chanting in rhyme far too often these days mimicking the tone of voice that will soon come to be known as Meowth.

Summary:
Satoshi entered a Trainer showdown in a Pokémon Gym. In the end, he was able to defeat the Rock Pokémon specialist Takeshi and obtain the Gray Badge.

Now, with another member added to the group, they head to the caves of Moon-Viewing Mountain in order to take a shortcut to Hanada City, their next goal. However, when they reach the cave entrance, they find a researcher being attacked by a huge group of Zubat, whom they save with the help of Pikachu's electricity. The man they saved is an intern scientist named Rikao, who is extremely grateful for the help, and offers to guide the group through the caves, which is filled with wounded Pokémon.

This has happened because the Pokémon habitats in the cave have been wrecked by the large amount of people who have come to the cave in search of the Moon Stone.

And then, a Pokémon suddenly comes skipping along right before their eyes, carrying a small shining stone in its hands... it is a Pippi!
