Stopping at a Pokémon Center en route to Lilypad Town and Dawn’s next Pokémon Contest, our heroes learn of a rogue Gible living on Mt. Shady. Excited at the prospect of catching it, Ash can’t wait to go find this Gible…but Khoury wants to catch it, too! Well aware of the potential dangers that await, the group sets off in hot pursuit of the feisty Gible.
True to expectation, Gible proves to be a formidable adversary. One by one, the strategies for catching the rogue Pokémon end in frustration. Even Team Rocket attempts to catch the ornery Gible using fishing poles. All they manage to hook is a humongous Sharpedo, which sends them fleeing in panic! Finally, when Khoury and his Totodile go head to head against Gible, the tough Pokémon is finally worn down to the point where it can be caught...and Khoury makes the catch!
With Gible secured as Khoury’s new friend, everyone turns their attention to Lilypad Town again, where Dawn’s next Pokémon Contest will soon take place.
