Once in a Blue Moon

Ash is sitting by a river polishing his Poké Balls with Pikachu beside him. The last ball he polishes is the GS Ball, a gold and silver Poké Ball that Ash was taking to Kurt. Misty tells Ash that he will need more than shiny Poké Balls to win at the Violet Gym. Ash ignores her and Misty tells him that Brock is cooking lunch. Brock says that the food is ready and Misty and Ash race over. Suddenly Pikachu points to something in the water that was shiny and blue. A Pokémon rises up from the water and is revealed to be Quagsire. Misty wants to catch it and throws out a Poké Ball, revealing her Psyduck. Psyduck stands there and stares at Quagsire. Misty picks Psyduck up and accidentally kicks the GS Ball into the water. Quagsire picks it up in its mouth and swims away. Ash sends out Squirtle to get it back. Squirtle manages to catch up to Quagsire but loses grip do to its slippery skin.
