Capacia Island UFO! (Japanese: 光る円盤！オーベムたちの街！！ Shining Flying Saucer! Ohbem's Town!!) is the 133rd episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 790th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on July 4, 2013 and in the United States on October 5, 2013.
Approaching the Capacia Island port after a long journey across the island, our heroes see something that looks like a shooting star—until it goes out of control and crashes into the ocean. Upon investigation of the debris, Ash finds an Amulet Coin, said to bring good luck to its owner. Excited, the three of them head to the Pokémon Center in town for a good night’s rest before they return to the ship.
Meanwhile, Team Rocket is investigating the unidentified flying object as well. James finds his own Amulet Coin, while Meowth encounters a group of Beheeyem, who take him aboard their crashed ship and try to pry the Charm off his forehead! The Beheeyem have also tracked Ash’s Amulet Coin to the Pokémon Center and are now lurking outside...
The next morning, Ash wakes up to discover that everyone in town suddenly looks like Beheeyem! He runs to get help, but Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy have been afflicted with this mysterious condition as well. In fact, the only people he can find who don’t look like Beheeyem are Jessie and James. The three of them call a temporary truce to figure out what’s going on.
Jessie, James, and Ash come across a meeting in the town square, where a real Beheeyem is directing the townspeople to search for something that looks like the Amulet Coin that Ash found. When the townspeople notice the three of them eavesdropping, they are forced to find a hiding place, where they find Meowth again and learn about the flying saucer. Ash wants to confront the Beheeyem and make them return everyone to normal, while Team Rocket has plans to steal their technology for the Boss.
They sneak aboard the ship, where the Beheeyem take control of Meowth’s mind so they can speak through him. They explain that their ship crashed and lost its power supply—which, it turns out, looks a lot like an Amulet Coin, and also like Meowth’s Charm. Ash offers the coin he found, but that’s not the one they’re looking for. James decides that if his “coin” is really a spaceship’s energy source, it’s worth much more than he thought, so he isn’t interested in giving it up—until a helpful Thunderbolt from Pikachu sends the villains blasting off again and knocks the power supply into Ash’s hands.
Ash returns the missing piece to the Beheeyem, who repair their ship, release their hold on the town, and fly away. He meets up with Iris and Cilan, who have no idea what’s been happening. But that’s OK, because they’re ready to continue their journey!

As they reach the other end of Capacia Island, Ash and his friends rest at a Pokémon Center. The next morning, when Ash wakes up, he finds that the faces of Cilan, Iris, Axew and Pikachu have been replaced with that of a Beheeyem. He asks Cilan why they have Beheeyem masks on, and even attempts to pull it off, but causes Cilan agony instead, as it's attached to his face. He then tells Pikachu to shake it off, and he does so. When Cilan and Iris suddenly move towards him in a possessed manner, Ash and Pikachu run. Rushing outside, he finds that everyone in town, both people and Pokémon, have their face turned into a Beheeyem face. Ash worries what to do until he bumps into two people who have yet to be changed, Jessie and James. It turns out they are looking for Meowth who has disappeared. Ash decides to form a temporary truce with them in order to try and restore the town.
Later, Jessie, James, and Ash come across a meeting in the town square, where, assisted by Nurse Joy, Officer Jenny and her Audino, a real Beheeyem is directing the townsfolk to search for something that looks like the Amulet Coin that Ash found. When the brainwashed Iris and Axew notice the three eavesdroppers, Beheeyem flashes its lights, which Officer Jenny translates as an order to pursue them, forcing them to hide by jumping through a drain cap and running to a warehouse. There, they find Meowth again and learn about the flying saucer and the failed attempts to take the amulet-coin like object on his forehead. Ash wants to confront the Beheeyem and make them return everyone to normal, while Team Rocket plots to steal their technology for the Boss. Then, they find a box of Pokemon masks, and disguise themselves. However, a lady's umbrella knocks Ash's mask off, and they are forced to flee again.
They sneak aboard the spaceship, where they tie up a Beheeyem and force it to take them to their friends. The Beheeyem then take control of Meowth’s mind so they can speak through him. Through Meowth, they explain that their ship crashed and lost its power supply— which turns out to look like an Amulet Coin, and also like Meowth’s Charm. As for why everyone appears to have a Beheeyem face, it was because since some humans didn't get the signal as clearly as others, they thought those who got the signal clearly had a Beheeyem face. Ash offers the coin he found, but that’s not the one they’re looking for. James decides that if his “coin” is really a spaceship’s energy source, it’s much more valuable than he thought, so he isn’t interested in giving it up — until a helpful Thunderbolt from Pikachu sends the villains blasting off again and knocks the power supply into Ash’s hands.
Ash returns the missing piece to the Beheeyem, who repair their ship, change everyone back to normal, and fly away. He then meets up with Iris and Cilan, who have no idea whatsoever about what happened. At the mention of Beheeyem faces however, Axew pops out with a Beheeyem mask on his face, causing Ash and Pikachu to freak out and nearly fall in the water had it not been for Iris and Cilan. But that's fine, cause everything is back to normal and Ash can continue his quest of becoming a Pokemon Master!

Who's That Pokémon?: Meowth (Team Rocket) (US and international) Beheeyem (Japan)
- Professor Oak's Pokémon Live Caster: Vanilluxe. Before the lecture, Oak also showed a promotion about upcoming events.
- This episode aired on September 19, 2013 in Italy (on K2), sixteen days before the US airdate.
- This is the first episode of the Best Wishes series to feature a talking Pokémon in the international version of Who's That Pokémon?. In that case, Meowth from Team Rocket was featured since Beheeyem was already featured in Beheeyem, Duosion, and the Dream Thief!.
- After it's revealed that the Pokémon is Meowth, he'll say, "That's right!". This may be a reference to his line in the original Team Rocket motto.
- Meowth breaks the fourth wall when Ash asked what the Beheeyem were doing. Meowth replies "If I knew the answer to that, this show would be over".
- When Ash ties up a Beheeyem aboard the UFO, he then says, "Now, take us to your leaders!" This is a reference to a classic line said by aliens in most alien movies, which is "Take us to your leader!"
- This is the first episode since Pokémon Ranger - Deoxys Crisis! Part 2, 344 episodes ago, in which an alien Pokémon uses Meowth for communication purposes.
- During the introduction of the episode, the lights Meowth notices are from Beheeyem's left hand. The two reflections of Beheeyem's finger lights on Meowth's two eyes are shown symmetrically. Both eyes should have reflected the same light pattern (that is, a horizontally flipped left hand pattern), meaning that the pattern shown in Meowth's right eye is correct while the pattern shown in his left eye is wrong.
- When Meowth is angry, one of the Beheeyem has all six of its lights in the wrong place.
- When Pikachu is picked up by Ash, the black on his ears turn the same color as Ash's gloves during a few frames.
- In one scene, Pikachu jumps from Ash's left shoulder to the right one, overlapping through his hair and ear.
- The first possessed citizens that jumped into the manhole are different from the first ones who were shown falling underground.
- The Beheeyem that James grabbed had its finger lights in the wrong position the first time it was shown.
- The two Beheeyem that possessed Meowth also had their lights wrong at first.
- When the five Beheeyem reunite to see Ash's koban, all of them have their finger lights in the wrong position, excluding the one in front of the others.
- This error is repeated when they see James's koban, since the four Beheeyem's footage is recycled.
- After reactivating the ship, a floating Beheeyem is shown with only its upper half drawn.
Meowth eyes' reflection error
One of Beheeyem's lights error
Four of the Beheeyem's lights error
