Template:Incomplete synopsis On a cruise ship during their travels through the Decolore Islands, Ash, Iris, Cilan and Snivy are watching how Pikachu, Pignite and Axew play with a ball. Noting how they are in a place of the archipelago with many islands, Porter approaches them and offers them some juice. Meanwhile, on the water, two Pokémon emerge, an Octillery that climbs up to the ship's deck and a Croconaw, who waits under it. When the Pokémon are playing, Ash's Pignite makes a bad pass and goes after the ball. However, when he finds it, the Octillery jumps over him and then throws a boltrope to the water. Croconaw holds on to it and an Azumarill joins as well, Octillery pulls a capstan lever and the three proceed to enter to the ship.

At the ship's storage, Jessie, James and Meowth sneak in through the ventilation system in order to steal some food. However, before they get a chance, the Water-type Pokémon appear and steal the food before them, taking it off the ferry. Ash & Co. hear the alarm and rush to help, only to find the getaway raft and watch the Pokémon get away with the food. After hearing about the acts that these pirate Pokémon partake within, Ash decides to try and stop them, with Charizard, Snivy & Pignite attempting to make them see the errors of the ways.

Who's That Pokémon?: Octillery (Japan)


Jessie's earrings error


  • There is inconsistency in regards to the color of the ship railings. While the railings in the roofed ship terrace are colored red in most scenes, when they are showed from the outside and during full views of the ship, they are blue. Since the ship itself and Porter's color schemes features blue, the railings are probably supposed to be blue as well.
  • In one scene, Jessie's earrings are colored red.
  • While riding the boat, Oshawott sits on Ash's lap, but when he leans over to talk to Officer Jenny, Oshawott disappears.
