Summary

English Official Summary

On the fifth day of the Pokémon Summer Academy, Professor Rowan has a special assignment for his campers: they'll each team up with a partner and go to the Summit Ruins at night. They're sure to meet Ghost-type Pokémon along the way, but the first team to retrieve the Summit Ruins medal will win! Ash and Angie team up, while Brock's partner is a nervous kid and a macho boy named Kendall wants to be Dawn's partner. Conway's partner is a strange little girl. That night, the teams enter a forest on their way to the ruins, but Conway's partner doesn't seem to be anyone from the Summer Academy... Ghost-type Pokémon try to spook Angie's Shinx, but Pikachu shocks them into leaving it alone. As for Dawn, her partner runs away as soon as he sees the Pokémon! Conway's partner turns out to be a ghost who hypnotizes him into walking off a cliff, but a Dusknoir appears just in time to save him! Unfortunately, he faints before he has a chance to realize Dusknoir is one of the good guys. Dusknoir also saves Meowth from the ghost girl, but now everyone thinks Dusknoir is the real menace. According to Professor Rowan, there shouldn't even be a Dusknoir here, unless it emerged from the mysterious cavern discovered in the Summit Ruins. Ash and Angie reach the Ruins and find the Summit Medal. They've also found the ghost girl—so when they see Dusknoir, they battle it to protect the girl. Big mistake: the girl opens up a swirling portal to the spirit world and tries to suck in Angie and Ash. Dusknoir wakes up in time to save them and blast the ghost girl back into the cavern, which collapses behind her. Everyone realizes that Dusknoir was really trying to protect people from the ghost! Now that she's gone, things return to normal and Professor Rowan awards everyone equal points. That's the end of another day at the Pokémon Summer Academy!

The Movie 10 music made this episode a bit more dramatic than the previous two school episodes. The writers have certainly changed the overall idea of the Pokemon anime with the school arc. The episode was similar to Psychic VS Ghost! Midnight Duel!? and the Pokemon Orienteering episode. At least we know Ash and his friends actually go to school now.

The school is kinda more like a camp though... too fun for school. The buff kid flexing his chest, arms, and moobs was pretty freaky, it's kinda like what they do in bodybuilding competitions. Kid looks pretty young though.

An episode with this much "history" was certainly annoying to watch without knowing the dialogue.

Still a great ep though, the movie10 music was perfect for this episode.

This was one of my favorite episodes. My favorite type if Ghost, though, so I'm kind of biased.
I loved all the appearances of Ghost Pokémon in this episode, especially the trio of Gastly, Haunter, and Gengar. The ghosts in Pokémon are mischievous and scary at the same time!
I really liked how they portrayed Dusknoir as misunderstood and not really evil, and reminded us of it with the music from Movie 10. It was sad to see Shinx and Pikachu team up on Dusknoir when it was trying to save them, especially since Pikachu had already zapped a Haunter that was only trying to be mischievous by grabbing the tail of Shinx.
The ghostly girl's eyes were pretty scary even though they were only shown once. It was also scary when her voice became that of a man.
The only thing I didn't like was that Will-O-Wisp was used as a damaging attack in this episode when it actually isn't, just like in Movie 11. But I have to admit that it certainly looks cool.
