Editorial Reviews

Product Description

When Pokemon evolve, they are almost always stronger than before, and for Ash to win a ThunderBadge, Pikachu must defeat its evolved form, Raichu! It's a clash of lightning and pride! Later, Ash, Misty and Brock embark on a pleasure cruise aboard the St. Anne accompanied by other Pokemon and their trainers, but something seems wrong. Can the Cruise be a Team Rocket plot?!

Amazon.com

Pokémon Master-in-training Ash Ketchum experiences further ups and downs, with Misty teasing him and the practical Brock advising him. "Mystery at the Lighthouse" recalls Ray Bradbury's short story "The Fog Horn." The single, forlorn specimen of a huge seagoing Pokémon comes to a lonely lighthouse seeking companionship, but the villains of Team Rocket drive off the unique creature before "Pokémon scholar" Bill can study it. Moving on to Vermilion City, Ash wins a Thunder Badge in a match against the local champion, whose no-holds-barred tactics have sent more than a dozen Pokémon to the hospital. Ash and Pikachu prove that speed, agility, and friendship can overcome brute strength. At their evil boss's bidding, Team Rocket lures a crowd of Trainers onto the St. Anne ocean liner as part of a plot to seize their Pokémon. Ash leads a counterattack that defeats the bad guys, but the episode ends on an unusually ominous note, with Ash, Misty, Brock, and Pikachu trapped in the sinking ship. Even more ominous for parents is Bill's statement that there may be no limit to the number of Pokémon beyond the known 151. --Charles Solomon

The episode "Battle Aboard the St. Anne" has really made me wonder about James ... I think he needs therapy. Then again, he wouldn't be half as funny as he is if he were well-adjusted.
And of course, for you Pikachu fans, he and Raichu mix it up in "Electric Shock Showdown", the best episode on this DVD. Lt. Surge isn't letting our little yellow guy win easily, but as usual Pika's brains (not Ash's) save the day. (In this one, James and Jesse get weird again with their "Pika cheer". Disturbing yet funny. Maybe these two just didn't get enough love when they were children.)
The third episode, "Mystery At the Lighthouse", is eery and delightfully chilling.
This DVD belongs in every Poke fan's collection!

think Pokemon is cool? of course you do. well Electric Shock Showdown and Battle Aboard the St. Anne are some of the best. for true pokemon fans it was very exciting to see Pikachu vs. Raichu. Team Rocket begins to worry after the first match that pikachu lost, that Pikachu wasn't as valuable as they thought and should persue other villainess deeds, but in the end with an ability not known to Raichu, Pikachu, the underdog, comes out on top again. When Team Rocket henchmen try to capture a ship load of pokemon trainers' pokemon, the trainers join forces putting charmander with charmander and geodude with geodude to force Rocket off the ship but then a storm results in the evacuation and capsizing of the ship Ash must find and get back his first captured pokemon, butterfree, and James to get back a Majikarp he squanderd his and Jesse's money on,however the ship sinks with him and his friends trapped in side...

I've never seen the movie it's self,but I saw it on Kids WB once and really liked it! Although Ash lost to Lt. surge at first later he figured out Lt. Surges Raichu never learned the evasive attacks(Agility and Double team)when it was still a Pikachu so Ash's Pikachu kept Dodging Raichu so Raichu eventually ran out of attacks and Ash's Pikachu quicky knocked it out!!! One of the funniest things about this episode was Team Rocket was constantly cheering Ash's Pikachu on because they knew if it could beat it's evolved form,Raichu it would be worth stealing(not that they ever could steal it)!

Format: DVD
I am a big fan of Pokemon!.And you can understand why i gave it such a big score.This anime is far much cooler than Dragon Ball Z,(This anime is mainly a anime for the family while Dragon Ball Z is aimed at teenagers and adults).I like the part when Team Rocket dress up as two teenagers and start saying,"COOL,COOL,RADICAL,RADICAL"!.The only thing that get's me down about this DVD is that it doesn't have a option that let's you watch the anime in japanese,or include anything in japanese(The japanese version of the theme to Pokemon is much cooler and up beat than the US version).I hope that soon there will be new Pokemon episodes,but until then,this Dvd will keep you hooked up for now until new episodes make it to the US.Before i go,i want to say something....... "Prepare for trouble and make it double!" "To protect the world from devastation!" "To unite all people within our nation"! "To denounce the evils of truth and love"! "To extend our reach to the stars above!" "Jessy,James!" "Team Rocket!,blast off at the speed of light!" "Surrender now or prepare to fight!" "Meowth!,that's right!"

Format: VHS Tape
Before Pokemon Advanced this was my favorite episode. It takes place when Ash and friends (Misty and Brock) finally reach a city. Misty wants to go to a bubblebath and Brock wants to see a navigator. But Ash zips off to the gym! Finally though his friends convivnce him that the pokemon center would be a better place to crash. Pikachu is all healed, eating an apple, seeming fine, but suddenly a pidgey and ratata are rushed into the emergency room. They had been seriously hurt by the gym leader's amazing pokemon!

Now pikachu is afraid, but they tres out the battle anyway. Ash chooses pikachu to face....raichu?! Afraid, pikachu dashes behind Ash's leg. But it is forced to battle anyway. Raichu merely absorbs pikachu's shocks and creams in it two moves-thundershock and thunder punch, then a totally not-needed body slam. Poor pikachu didn't even need the third attack; it was so hurt.

The only solution was to evolve pikachu into raichu, but the little yellow pokemon refused. It threw down the stone. There went their only hope....or was there another way?
