Panic at the Cherry Blossom Festival (Japanese: お花見で大パニック, Panic at the Cherry Blossom Festival), is the fourth chapter of the second volume of Magical Pokémon Journey.
It is time for a cherry blossom festival in Hazel's town. She attends with Grandpa, Coconut, Almond, and the Pokémon. Grandpa offers Pikachu and Clefairy a drink of sake, but Hazel stops him, insisting that the Pokémon should not drink alcoholic beverages. She offers them amazake instead, however, the effect of the amazake on the Pokémon is the same as if a human had drank sake. As they are discovering that amazake gets Pokémon drunk, they discover a very drunk and violent Dodrio that is causing trouble. Dodrio's cousin, Doduo, apologises for his behavior.
Coconut brings out a sleeping potion to try to sedate Dodrio, but it turns out to be a firecracker instead, which explodes on Eevee. Squirtle, the only Pokémon that didn't get drunk, tries to attack Dodrio with his Water Gun, however, he is unable to defeat Dodrio. Clefairy decides to fight instead, despite still being drunk from the amazake. He too is defeated by Dodrio's Drill Peck.
Finally, Jigglypuff manages to put everyone to sleep with her Sing attack and the cherry blossom festival is cancelled. The entire group sleeps outside, and in the morning all the Pokémon are hungover and all of the humans catch colds.
Important characters and Pokémon
- Hazel and friends attend a cherry blossom festival.
- In the English translation, the amazake was changed to apple cider. This change was likely made as amazake is not a common drink in the English-speaking world. Either way, the effect is the same: Pokémon can get drunk off non-alcoholic beverages.
