Catch the Poliwag! (Japanese: ニョロモゲットだ! 大作戦 The Grand Nyoromo Catching Plan!!) is the ninth chapter of the Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All manga.


As Shu continues searching for Pokémon, Pikachu says that he'd rather take a break just before Shu catches sight of a Poliwag which he decides to try to catch, however it is too quick in the water. So he decides to try fishing, using a jumbo cream puff as bait because it's his favorite food and he assumes that Poliwag would like it too. Pikachu calls him an idiot, however it actually works after an hour. Shu tells Pikachu to use Agility so as to prevent Poliwag from getting away, however Pikachu moves too fast and ends up on the horizon, leaving Shu to prevent Poliwag escaping back into the water by himself. However he's attacks with a Bubble attack and falls into the water with Poliwag. Pikachu arrives back and strikes with a Thunderbolt managing to defeat the Poliwag so that Shu can catch it. However, Shu was also knocked out by the shock...
