Synopsis by Mark Deming
If you didn't catch 'em all -- all the episodes of the Pokemon animated TV series, that is -- here's another chance, with this home video release that collects three installments from the show. Ash enters Pikachu and Primeape in a Pokemon fighting tournament, but he doesn't discover until it's too late that Team Rocket has stolen a Hitmonlee that they're putting into the ring. Later, Pikachu is suffering from the electric flu, and a Magnamite thinks that affection is the balm he needs. And when the Digletts are destroying a dam, a number of Pokemon trainers are brought together to capture the creatures, which forces Ash to work alongside his archrival Gary.
