On top of that, the bridge is raised, blocking their passage. What will Pikachu do? The fight for the apples begins!!

Pokémon debuts




  • In several scenes, a Minccino puffs up angrily upon putting Meowth, Woobat, and Yamask to sleep with Sing, and then sweeping them away with its tail. This action is a direct parody of Jigglypuff's reaction when its audience falls asleep.
    • The same goes to Marill from PK18, PK19, PK20, and PK21, who also puffs up angrily upon putting its audience to sleep.


Cilan's Pansage hits a Mandibuzz with Dig even though it should have no effect, being the latter a Flying-type.
