The Pirates of Decolore! (Japanese: デコロラ諸島の海賊王！ The Pirate Kings of the Decolora Archipelago!) is the 129th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 786th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on June 6, 2013 and in the United States on September 7, 2013.
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
- 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.
- In another scene, Azumarill's face is missing.
- While riding the boat, Oshawott sits on Ash's lap, but when he leans over to talk to Officer Jenny, Oshawott disappears.
- In the U.S. broadcasting, version two of It's Always You and Me (used from The Name's N! to What Lies Beyond Truth and Ideals!) was used, instead of version three which began being used in Farewell, Unova! Setting Sail for New Adventures!.
- When Charizard goes flying in search of the raft, the downside greenish part of its wings is upside, and the upper orange parts of its wings is downside.
- In the dub, during Ash's battle against Azumarill and Croconaw, he commanded Pignite to use Fire Punch, when it should have been Fire Pledge.
