Absolutely Azumarill/Catch that Azumarill (Japanese: VSマリルリ VS. Marilli) is the 133rd round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
On Route 42, Crystal thinks of trying to catch other Pokémon (e.g. a Weedle, Caterpie, and Hoppip) and failing. She has realized that when she fell from Tin Tower, her Pokédex broke. Since it is broken, the tracking system doesn't work, so she can't find Suicune. She remembers when she started to train.
Her only Pokémon was Chumee. One day while practicing throwing Poké Balls at a target (and not doing so well with her aim), a wild Arcanine appeared and chased her. She tripped and broke her arms, then fainted.
The flashback ends and Crystal says that she might not be able to complete the Pokédex like this. And she can't call Professor Oak because her Pokégear is broken too. Then a wild Azumarill appears and runs, Crystal's mother in pursuit. Her mother is ecstatic at seeing her daughter and says hello to Crystal's Pokémon. She notices the new member of Crystal's party and asks what Megaree's name is. Crystal tells her and her mother reveals that she taught Crystal to put "ee" at the end of her Pokémon's nicknames. She gives Crystal Poké Balls made by Kurt and asks her to catch the Azumarill. Crystal tries, but the Poké Ball bounces off the Azumarill, which sinks below the surface of the pond. Crystal tells her mother about what's happening to her, Suicune, and her mission to complete the Pokédex. Her mother tells her to go back to the place where she started training after yelling at her/slapping her.
Later, Crystal is at Mt. Mortar. She ties up her arms and begins to train again.
- Crystal fails to capture a Pokémon again.
- Crystal's mother gives Crystal more Poké Balls.
- Crystal starts to retrain on Mt. Mortar.
|| Spoilers end here.
- In the VIZ Media edition, the scene where Crystal is slapped by her mother is changed to her mother glaring at her. However, everyone in the scene is left unedited as if she had still slapped her.
