Address Unown!
The gang is just strolling along when an Unown falls from the sky and hits Misty on the head. Misty is dazed but ok, she then tries to explain when he felt through the Unown. Ash then fells the Unown, it’s really hot. They decide to help it out. After awhile it wakes up and the gang says that they will help it get back to its friends. It’s now the next day, and Larvitar wakes up Ash. Unown is now feeling well and it’s floating around. Misty tries to talk to Larvitar but it gets scared. Team Rocket then attacks! Ash has Larvitar use Hidden Power but Wobbuffet uses its counter. It looks likes it will be bad but Unown starts to glow and Team Rocket is sent blasting off again! The gang has disappeared though.

Ash then sees a black crystal stuck in an egg and feels it; everybody then gets sucked into it. Pikachu and Togepi have returned to there original size. They then see the story of Larvitar being separated from its mother. They then see Larvitar, but vines surround it! The gang then tries to break them, but Larvitar has been frozen. Ash then starts to try to break it, and he succeeds with Pikachus help. Larvitar then jumps into Ash’s arms and the gang’s dream ends. They’re back in the Normal World. Larvitar is no longer scared! Unown then floats towards the sky and a Wormhole full of Unown opens up and it returns to its home.

Mother Of All Battles!
The gang is very close to Mt Silver and is almost to the Silver Conference. They then come to a rickety old bridge and there not to anxious to cross, but Larvitar then crosses it and the gang also cross. Larvitar is really, really happy as they walk through the forest, but then the grounds starts to shake, and a Tyranitar appears. It has the same scar that Ash and the gang saw when they entered Larvitar's mind, it’s Larvitar's Mom! Ash encourages Larvitar to go talk with its mom, but Tyranitar thinks Ash is threatening Larvitar and uses Hyperbeam! The gang and Larvitar start to run; they run for a good long while until the Tyranitar’s Hyper Beam knocks them over. Larvitar then uses Screech and Tyranitar realizes that this is her child. Suddenly a net captures Tyranitar, a Group of Poachers have come to recapture it! They then attempt to capture Larvitar but Ash gets caught instead. They are going to try again but then they hear the shrill of a police siren. They leave in a hurry with the captured Tyranitar, but Brock has Crobat follow them. A woman on a motorcycle then shows up with a Croconaw. Brock of coarse goes Love crazy, the woman is Mason the Ranger of the Pokemon Preserve. Ash is then freed from the net he was captured in, and he goes to cheer up Larvitar, who looks quite sad. Team Rocket after seeing the equipment this group has is now attempting join and use it themselves. They get permission, but Team Rocket has to give them there balloon until they get the equipment back. The whole time Crobat has been watching this, and is heading back to report to Brock. Crobat leads them to the site, but Team Rocket attacks, and the Poachers are getting away with Tyranitar in Team Rockets ballon! The machine that the Brothers let Team Rocket borrow then attacks, and surprises everyone. They use this time to catch Pikachu and Cronaw, and fire a net that captures everyone but Larvitar. Ash then has Larvitar use Screech which gets Tyranitar’s attention, but the Poachers shock it. Tyranitar is so mad it is constantly firing Hyper Beam’s, which causes the Net to break. Tyranitar then fires its Hyper Beam at the balloon, breaking it and the remote the Poachers were using. The Poachers then try one more time to capture Tyranitar and Larvitar, but a combination of Hyper Beam and Hidden Power blows there machine apart. Tyranitar and Larvitar are finally together. Mason then thanks the Gang for helping her out with the Poachers. The Gang then starts to head off, and sees Larvitar waving goodbye, and they wave back.

Pop Goes The Sneasel
The gang is now continuing on there Journey to Mt. Silver, and they notice a gathering of people near a gate. This is the gate to Mt. Sliver and it’s closed, and someone inside of the gate comes and explains what’s going on. But during this time, Togepi enters the gate; Pikachu tries to catch it and follows it in, along with the rest of the gang trying to catch them both. The gang apologizes for the trouble, but two people come running down some steps, they say that it was a major mistake going up there and they barely escaped. The person starts explains that those people have been trying to get the Sacred Fire, Ash asks what it is, and another Pokemon trainer then tells him. The person is Harrison; he is from the Houen Region. A long time ago there was a massive battle here, and many Pokemon were injured, Ho-oh then used its powers to revive this place. But a small tree was still burning and was put into a shrine. There has been a Sneasel, Machop and, Machoke around the shrine lately and they have not let people come near it. Many trainers and Pokemon have been seriously injured attempting to get near the shrine, and if there’s no fire, there’s no Silver Tournament. Ash and Harrison both go up to the shrine with everyone following. Team Rocket is strolling around the Woods planning to seal the Sacred Fire, but when they find it Machoke and a Machop beat them up. Jessie tries to battle with Arbok but Sneasel beats it thoroughly. Jessie then throws in Meowth who also gets beat, and Team Rocket gets sent clear across the road. The gang then arrives but Ash almost gets his head taken off, but then every one gets to the top ok. A battle ensures between Misty using Corsola and Harrison using Houndoom against Machoke and Machop, and Ash almost gets to the shrine but Sneasel stops him.

They give Sneasel a box that contains a bomb and it explodes, they accidentally grab Meowth instead of Sneasel though. Harrison then sends out Blaziken to battle Sneasel, it is a fierce battle but Harrison succeeds and catches Sneasel. They get the Sacred Fire and the ceremony can finally begin.

A Claim to Flame!
The gang has arrived in Silver Town for the tournament. At the Pokemon Center Ash and Gary meet up and they argue as usual until Gary walks off. The gang then arrives at the Johto League Silver Hall to find out about this tournament. Brock then explains the rules of the tournament via the guidebook, there are rules for the selection of Pokemon for 1 on 1 battles, and only 48 of the original 200 trainers that have registered will continue on. So even if you loose once there’s still a chance you can still continue on. At the tournament Ash first faces a trainer from Cherrygrove City. Ash first sends out Pikachu and the other trainer sends out Furret. The battle is quite fierce with both sides take significant damage until Pikachu finally defeats Furret. The trainers shake hands and move on. At the Silver hall Ash sees Harrison and Gary are among the 48 survivors of the first round. Mr. Goodshow then shows up and explains the rules of the next round; each trainer uses three Pokemon, until there are 16 trainers left. To say the least, Ash is confident. Later, Ash and Pikachu can’t sleep and they decide to take a walk, and they run into Gary. They end up chatting for awhile, wish each other good luck, and they then split. The next morning Ash calls Oak, but ends up getting his mom. As Ash is about to enter the stadium, Team Rocket disguised as inspectors drag him off and lock him away. Gary notices this and heads after Ash, and frees him. Ash and Gary being to follow Team Rocket but Ash gets caught in a trap, and Gary frees him.

The compentition is now in a points system, 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie, and 0 for a loss. Ash is feeling confident when his opponent comes and drags him outside of the hall, she wants to talke to him. For dragging him you, all she wants is a practice battle, and Ash aggress. She uses Vulpix and Ash uses Pikachu but a net captures Pikachu and Vulpix! Team Rocket is behind it, and escapes. Ash in hot persuit almost falls off a cliff but the girl grabs him and pulls him backup. She’s Macey, but Team Rocket them appears in front of them. Ash uses Bayleef, whose Vine Whip gets Pikachu and Vulpix, and another Vine Whip who sends Team Rocket blasting off again. Brock and Misty then show up, and Macty then bear hugs Ash and tries to drag him off again. Misty stops her, and they get into an argument over water and fire Pokemon. Later that day at the Pokemon Center Ash starts to do some research on his opponent; she uses mostly fire types, so he plans to use his two water types. The next day Ash is warming up Kingler when three Voltorb roll down a hill. Kingler catches them but is badly damaged. Joy says it will be fine, but is out of competition for the day. But something weird happens, an officer Jenny shows up with Ash’s Squirtle! Squirtle wanted to come here to help Ash out. Apparently Ash’s Squirtle has become allot stronger and ash gets excited about this, he asks her if he can use it, and that’s the reason Squirtle’s here! At the stadium it’s time to battle, and Macey will go first. Macey uses Slugma and Ash uses Totodile. The battle is good, and Slugma takes damage but is withdrawn by Macey for Electabuzz. Ash then sends recalls Totodile and uses Phanpy. There is a type mismatch, so Macey withdraws Electabuzz for Slugma. Slugma is finished off by Phanpy, and she now calls Quilava. Quilava beats Phanpy and Ash uses Totodile, and Macey withdraws Quilava for Electabuzz. Ash has got problems and Electabuzz makes short work of Totodile. Ash sends out Squirtle, and during a fierce battle defeats Electabuzz with Speedy Water Guns and Skull Bash! Quilava is now out and during a wild battle Squirtle gets stuck on its back, but in a great maneuver Squirtle enters its shell and uses Hydro Pump, finishing off Quilava. The gang plus Jenny comes to congratulate Ash, and Macey then comes up and thanks him for putting up a good battle. Ash now has 3 points for the tournament, and Macey then come…due to the fierce ness of the battle, her Slugma has evolved into a Magcargo! Macey is really head over heals for Ash and wishes him luck, it’s on to the next battle!

Macey is in the middle of a hard battle with Jackson, a trainer from New Bark Town. Her Magcargo and his Starmie have both fainted. There both down to one Pokemon, Macey’s Quilava and Jacksons Quilava. They have a good battle and Macey wins! Ash has a metting at the hall so he lets out Bulbasaur and Squirtle to play for awhile. Ash then sees his next opponent, Jackson. They talk for awhile; Jackson is a trainer from New Bark Town. Squirtle and Bulbasaur are nicely playing when they see an apple, Bulbasaur uses its vine whip to get the apple, but then a Meganium also tries to go for the apple. Squirtle though gets the apple and breaks it in half, but then Meganium steals one part and gives it to an Azumarill. All the Pokemon then end up in a fight. Ash and Jackson are chatting with Elm and telling him that Larvitar got home, when they see there Pokemon fighting outside, and they go outside to stop it. Harrison then shows up and has his Miltank use Heal Bell, which calms the Pokemon down. Officer Jenney then shows up, and Harrison tells them they were only practicing. But Gary then comes says it wasn’t, and Jenny gets confused and just tells them to be more carefull. Gary and Ash then have there usual argument. Later, the gang then does research on Jackson, and there begin preparations. The battle then begins! Jackson uses Azumarill and Ash goes with Pikachu, and in a good battle with type eventually becoming the deciding factor, Pikachu beats Azumarill. Jackson then uses Magneton, the battle for awhile is a stalemate, but Magneton then uses Thunder Wave to paralyze Pikachu, and Tri Attack to finish it off.

Later Ash is back in the hall, Harrison has continued on, and Ash next battle IS GARY! They then see each other and glare; this is going to be a huge battle.

The Ties That Bind!
Now there something that’s not new, Ash and Gary are arguing again. Gary then takes part of a Pokeball from his pocket and it somehow relates to a draw they had. Later, Ash tells the gang the story; a long time ago Ash was fishing and was smacked around by a Magikarp he caught. Gary then showed up and had a laugh, they argue, Gary acts all big and smart, and Gary then starts to fish. They both catch something, the same thing, and it turns out to be a Pokeball. They pull and pull and pull and it shrinks into its smaller form and breaks. They both have a piece, and argue some more. Ahs has high sprits, but he’s beginning to plan some strategies. The next day Misty rises and finds Ash doing research because he can’t sleep. The computer gives Ash trouble, but now its breakfast time. At breakfast Ash starts to worry, Gary has all kinds of Pokemon so he’s not sure what Pokemon he will use. Then all of a sudden Ash sees Charazard coming! Ash is excited and Charazard uses flamethrower! Our old buddy Brock made a call to Liza at Charicific valley and Charizard has arrived! Gary then sees this and is surprised. Charizard almost gives Gary a flamethrower but Professor Oak and Ash Mom show up! They’ve come to see the battle that’s brewing, and Oak calms everybody down. Professor Oak then reveals some news, there’s a Pokedex Upgrade! They both receive the upgrade. Everybody then gets excited about all the new Pokemon that are in it, except Gary who complains about it and walks off. Ash’s Mom then wishes him luck and the gang then goes off to plan. It’s now the day of the battle and Ash is going to be battling on the Rock field. Ash is planning in the Locker Room when Harrison comes by; he’s just won on the Water field. Ash then congratulates him and Harrison wishes Ash luck. The battle begins on the field, Gary uses Nidoqueen and Ash uses Tauros. Nidoqueen beats Tauros quickly which is bad, and Ash then sends in Heracross. Gary withdraws Nidoqueen and sends out Magmar and in a fierce battle Magmar faints. Gary is momentarily surprised by Ash’s success so far and then sends out Blastoise. They begin to battle, but the results will have to wait until the next episode.

Can't Beat the Heat!
Gary and Ash’s battle continues. Heracross gets hit by flying debris due to Blastoise’s Hydro Pump destroying the rock it was hiding behind and faints. Ash sends out Muk, who fights hard, but is then withdrawn. Ash then uses Bayleef, who gets thoroughly stomped by Blastoise. A 5-minute brake is ordered due to Ash loosing three of his Pokemon. A few minutes later the battle then begins, and Ash sends out Snorlax. Gary withdraws Blastoise and uses Arcanine. Arcanine at first puts up a valiant effort, but Snorlax beats it. Gary then reuses Nidqueen, who also puts up a valiant effort at first, but Snorlax beats it too. Gary then sends out Scizor, whose blinding speed beats Snorlax. Ash then sends out Muk, and Scizor is at first slowed due to Muks body, but it eventually beats Muk. Ash is in trouble, only one Pokemon left. It’s Charizard! Gary planed for this though, but it fails when the battle goes Air Born, which Charizard wins. Gary then decides to use Golem, who is resistant to fire. The battle is fierce, and Charizard beats Golem using Dragon Rage. Gary is down to his last Pokemon, Blastoise. Blastoise’s first attacks are infective due to Charizard’s flying, and Ash comes up with a brilliant strategy, he has Charizard heat up all the rocks around Blastoise, immobilizing it. Gary who is very desperate at this point has Blastoise cool the field. Charizard then uses Dragon Rage, Blastoise withdraws into its shell and Charizard uses Seismic Toss. Blastoise attempts to fight, but gets slammed into the field, making it faint. Gary withdraws from the field and the gang comes to congratulate Ash. After the battle, Gary is down by a pond and Ash comes up and asks how he is. Gary then gives him the other half of the split Pokeball! Gay is not embarrassed about loosing to Ash, and they sake hands and agree to be friends. It’s now the next day and Ash is facing his next opponent, Harrison. Ash sends out Pikachu and Harrison uses Kecleon.

Playing with Fire!
The battle now begins with Ash using Pikachu and Harrison using Kecleon. Kecleon cloaks and then reappears showing its ability, and the battle begins. Kecleon recloaks but it can be seen by the pattern on its belly. Pikachu almost finds it but Kecleon is very fast, and Ash comes up with an idea, he has Pikachu uses it’s hearing to listen for it. Pikachu again almost finds it but Kecleon uses lick paralyzing Pikachu. Kecleon re-camouflages it’s self and gets Pikachu confused. Kecleon uses Psybeam but Pikachu regains its senses and doges. Kecleon almost licks Pikachu, but Pikachu grabs a hold of Kecleon’s tongue and gives it a Thunderbolt, causing it to faint. Harrison sends out Sneasel and in a short battle uses Metal Claw to knock out Pikachu. Ash sends out Totodile, and Totodile almost suffers a Metal Claw but it bites Sneasels arm and then responds with Iron Tail making Sneasel faint. Harrison then sends out Hypno, and it puts Totodile to sleep, and finishes it off with Psychic. Ash sends out Snorlax, who’s asleep! Hypno uses Dream Eater and Snorlax then wakes up…VERY MAD! Snorlax uses Hyper Beam which promptly takes out Hypno. Harrison has lost three Pokemon so it’s time for an intermission. The battle then restarts, Ash sends out Noctowl and Harrison uses Steelix. Ash is concerned and has Noctowl use confusion, but Steelix uses Dig and then attacks from underground, damaging Noctowl. Noctowl attempts to counterattack with Hypnosis but Steelix uses Iron Tail causing it to faint. Ash resends out Snorlax, and the battle is fierce, It comes down to Steelix biting Snorlax and Snorlax responding with Ice Punch. Steelix is frozen, and Snorlax finishes it off with Hyper Beam. Harrison sends out Houndoom, Snorlax uses Hyper Beam but Houndoom uses Counter, reflecting the attack at twice the power back at Snorlax, causing it to faint. Ash sends out Bayleef, it seems like a major mismatch but when Houndoom attempts to bite Bayleef, it wraps its vines around Houndoom’s mouth. It can’t use Flamethrower, and Bayleef smashes it into the ground causing it to faint. Harrison sends out his last Pokemon, who is Blaziken. Ash has to go to his Pokedex for more information. Bayleef puts up a valiant effort, but is no match for Blaziken. Ash is down to his last Pokemon, and it’s Charizard! The battle starts…

Johto Photo Finish
The battle now continues between Charizard and Blaziken. They flamethrower each other and it becomes really smokey, when it clears, there in a stare down. Charizard tries a Flamethrower and then a Dragon Rage but Blaziken avoids them both, and then Blaziken tries a flamethrower and Charizard avoids it. More flamethrowers, then Blaziken uses Quick Attack and Give Charizard a fiery punch to the face. Charizard then Flamethrowers Blaziken again succeeding, and Blaziken use’s another Quick Attack, but Charizard grabs it and goes for a Seismic Toss. It succeeds, but Charizard also takes damage in the encounter. Blaziken ok, it used a flamethrower before it hit the ground softening the blow. Both Pokemon are showing fatigue, Blaziken uses Quick attack and Charizard responds with a Flamethrower and then goes for a Seismic toss. Unfortunately Blaziken gives Charizard a Flaming Foot right to the face. Charizard’s wounded, but then Blaziken uses Flamethrower and Charizard responds with Dragon Rage! A massive explosion occurs. The smoke then clears and both Pokemon are down, they eventually begin to move and both get up! Unfortunately Charizard’s damage is just too high and it faints. The crowd cheers and Ash shakes Harrison’s hand. Well the Leagues over, Squirtle’s going back with Jenny, and Oak and Ash’s Mom have to head home. Charizard will return to Liza’s tomorrow, it needs to rest after the battle. Later the next day we see Harrison battling a trainer from Cherry Town, and he can’t use Blaziken, it is still suffering after the battle with Charizard. He eventually looses a tough battle. At night the gangs strolling near a pond and they see Harrison. Blaziken’s still at the Pokemon center, apparently the beating it took from Charizard was pretty bad, so the gang gives him there best hopes. Harrison asks if he know Professor Oak, because Harrison’s heard allot about him from Professor Birch. Ash tells him his story, and Harrison tells him about leaving from Littleroot Town to battle here. Ash has not been to Houen yet and Harrison tells him to go, and meet the Professor. They then here a scream and head towards it. They arrive, and Ghosts are floating about! Ash has Noctowl use Foresight and it’s a bunch of Misdreavus.

He talks about his journeys a little and tells the gang that this is his last journey; he’s going to start researching! Ash and Gary shake hands and Brock and Misty comment on how there friends now. It’s now the last battle of the Silver Conference, and the Trainer from Cherry Town Wins! Charles Goodshow the chairman of the conference presents him with the Trophy! The day after, Team Rocket, who has been selling fake badges throughout the tournament, now realizes they have no customers left, everybody’s left the conference.
