201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201


In a beautiful meadow, Ash’s Noibat accidentally runs into a Breloom, who attacks with its poisonous spores! Clemont doesn’t have any medicine, but a passing Floette sees Noibat in distress and uses Aromatherapy to cure it.

A sudden gust sends Floette flying, and Noibat takes off to rescue its new friend! The two are playing together when Breloom barges in with a bouquet for Floette, and then gets angry when Floette isn’t interested. Noibat steps up to protect Floette from the unwanted attention—and then from Team Rocket! Soon, many more Floette drift by on the wind, and Noibat has to say goodbye as its friend continues its own journey.

The title card segment focuses on Ash for this episode


  • When Ash and his friends are relaxing at the flower field, Bonnie is sitting at the table. When the camera focuses on Squishy, Bonnie is hiding behind the rock it's standing on.
  • In the dub, when Noibat saved Floette from falling, Noibat's Japanese voice can be heard when they're circling in the air.
    • This may have been done so Floette's voice could be retained, however.
  • In one scene, Noibat's eyelids are colored light-purple instead of black.
  • When James commands Inkay to use Psybeam, it is seen charging up the move, but in the next shot when Clemont sends out Luxray to battle, Inkay is shown just getting ready to charge up the attack, despite already starting to do so in the previous shot.
  • The wild Breloom used Headbutt on Jessie's Gourgeist even though it should have no effect on Ghost-types.
  • In the Brazilian Portuguese dub, "Portuguese" is misspelled as "Portugues" in the credits.

Dub edits

  • The title card segment is read by Ash instead of Serena.
  • In the dub, when Jessie sends Gourgeist to battle, she tells her to "teach them to be polite", instead of commanding her to use Seed Bomb like in the Japanese version.
