Great Pokémon Moment – 6

Ash Allows Pikachu to be With His Own Kind

While we all know that Pikachu loves being with Ash, there was a time when our hero nearly lost his electric Pokémon for good. The episode was called ‘Pikachu’s Goodbye’…

Moment6-1Moment6-2Ash is swinging on a vine through the forest, watched by Misty and Brock when he accidentally smacks into a tree. Worried for his Trainer, Pikachu rushes over to see if he is okay. Just then a baby Pikachu pops up and then quickly runs away. Ash and Pikachu follow the baby and discover an entire Pikachu clan living in the forest. On seeing Ash, Misty and Brock they get scared, but one brave monster shakes tails with Ash’s Pikachu. The bond between the wild Pikachu and the one we all know and love is strengthened when the baby falls into a river and Ash’s Pikachu jumps in to save it. Both are rescued by an amazing sight – all the Pikachu join their tails together to pluck them from the river.

Moment6-3Moment6-4It’s obvious that Pikachu is meant to be with his own kind. Desperate for a Pikachu for their boss, it’s not long before Team Rocket appear and start plucking monsters with a net. Ash’s Pikachu soon puts a stop to this by nibbling through the net. With the Pikachus saved, Ash walks away sad. He knows he must leave his good friend behind. Just when you think it’s all over for the duo, Pikachu comes running back and jumps into Ash’s arms. Although it would love to be with other Pikachu, Ash is too important to it! Ahh.

      The bond between Ash and pikachu is strong and perhaps,all of us,in our own special way can feel the same way towards our own pokemon as Ash feels towards pikachu because if you love something you will set it free even if in your own heart you dont want too.
