Big Meowth, Little Dreams (Japanese: メイッコルリリは大迷惑？ Ruriri the Niece is a Great Nuisance?) is episode nineteen of Pokémon Chronicles, and the tenth side story episode of Weekly Pokémon Broadcasting Station in Japan. It was first broadcast in Japan on June 17, 2003, in the UK on September 14, 2005, and in the USA on October 21, 2006, as a two part special with the previous episode.
A new episode starts when the Pokémon are finished with Azurill's welcome feast. Azumarill is seen laying another feast, due to little Azurill being there while the Pichu Brothers play with the Azurill. The Pichu Big looks around to see its brother hiding in a bush by the table. When Azumarill isn't looking, it goes to snatch an acorn, but Pichu stops it. It begins to scold it, then the two notice Azurill is missing.
Meanwhile, Meowth wanders in the back alley of the city, complaining about being tired and bored and that he needs a new reason to live. He looks up and sees a sleeping Skitty up above. Meowth is instantly in love and creates a kissing face in a puff of smoke. It floats up to kiss Skitty, but it wags its tail, blowing it out. He sighs, saying it wasn't meant to be. He then tries to compose a poem but he can't seem to find a rhyme. Meowth then sadly walks on.
At the tire playground from the third mini movie, the Pichu Bros. rally the Pokémon together for a search party. Smoochum, Teddiursa, Magby, and the Pichu Brothers all begin to search for Azurill. As they walk down an alley Azurill bounces by. The Pokémon give chase only to find Azurill happily bouncing across a busy highway! Luckily, Azurill makes it across safely. The Pokémon then use the crosswalk.
Azurill comes to an alley and jumps on top of Wooper who is wading in its barrel of water. Wooper is then trampled by the Pichu Brothers and their search party. At first it is confused, but decides to join them.
Meanwhile, Meowth finds a wedding dress covered in roses in a shop window. He quickly "deflowers" it and decides to give the roses to Skitty.
Azurill happily bounces along next to the harbor. The search party watches as it leaps into the harbor. They think it is going to hit the water when a Feraligatr leaps out. Azurill bounces off of it and makes it to the other side of the harbor. The Pokémon stare at the scene, while Azurill bounces down an alley. They then take the nearby bridge and the chase ensues.
Meowth brings a ladder to where Skitty is carrying the bouquet of roses. He blushes, hoping she'll like them, and he begins to ascend the ladder. Azurill enters the scene and sees the roses. It instantly wants them and uses its tail to bounce up to some clothes hanging in between the buildings. It gets itself caught in them, but continues to pursue the roses. Meowth presents them to the sleeping Skitty with its lips puckered, but before it wakes up, Azurill leaps in. It lands on the roses and leaves with them, leaving all the clothes where they were.Not many times to see little Azurill taking the roses. Skitty wakes up thinking Meowth is presenting her with a pile of clothes, and she slashes him with Fury Swipes. Skitty then leaves the balcony as Meowth falls off the ladder wondering what happened. He then looks up to see Azurill happily bouncing away with his roses.
Meowth still refuses to give up and this time he brings Skitty some cake. He holds it out, but Azurill jumps by and eats it. Skitty looks to see the empty plate. The plate is seen smashed against the wall. Unamused, Skitty closes the window on Meowth's face. Meowth then tries to woo Skitty with some guitar music. It seems to be working, and Skitty comes to the balcony to listen. Azurill also comes and begins to dance to Meowth's music. Meowth becomes enraged, and tries to crush it with his guitar, but he only smashes Skitty. He freaks out and says that "it looks good on her" and "that look is in." Skitty closes the shudders, sending him falling again. Meowth says he blew his chances and looked up to see a laughing Azurill. Then Meowth yelled to Azurill he'd show it funny.
Meanwhile, the group of Pokémon continues their search for Azurill. They hear Meowth's yell and spot it on the rooftops as it nears the edge. It loses its balance and begins to fall. Then, Pichu Big told Wooper to use Water Gun, and Smoochum picks it up. Meowth sits on the rooftop preparing to shove Azurill off. Smoochum tells Wooper to use Water Gun, and it does. At the last second, Azurill regains its balance and hops away, but Meowth is struck by the water gun and sent blasting off.
Azurill bounces off a tarp and is caught by the group of Pokémon. Meowth lands on the other side of the city. He is saddened by the loss of his beloved Skitty, but doesn't get a chance to think anymore about it when he is flattened by a Snorlax rolling over.
In the final scene Meowth narrates he set his goals high again; he is seen lying in the bed setting his new goal to a nice long rest for his return to Team Rocket.
