-->'''Ash''': ''(looks at her oddly)'' That was all mental, Misty. We never left the clearing, I was in no real danger. ''(wilts beneath [[DeathGlare Death Glares]] from Misty, Charizard, Squirtle, Riolu, and Pikachu)'' I suppose this means I forgot to mention it, then?

** Then, after Ivysaur wins with Fury Cutter, Erika sends out a Victreebel. Ash promptly sends out Charizard. Ivysaur promptly begins to throttle Ash for forgetting about ''Charizard'', in a ''Grass Gym'', when he had ''planned to use him from the start.''

** During the incident with the Hypno and Drowzee causing the whole town to go nuts, Pikachu suggests Riolu wearing Ash's Psychic-neutralizing hat in different areas of the city, measure how long it takes Riolu to fall asleep after the hat is taken off, and using that info to triangulate where the epicenter of the hypnotic waves is. This is Riolu's response.
---> '''Riolu:''' But I don't wanna be a piece of scientific apparatus!
*** Until Misty just suggests [[StatingTheSimpleSolution using Starmie to track the psychic waves]].

** About the gym battle... It started with Lapras using Rain Dance... ''Indoor''. No effect on the field, but it was making rain on the ''vacation resort'' outside. Then we had Ash's strategy for the match (a double battle in which he used Lapras and ''Snorlax''), whose result was "a half-ton Pokemon bouncing around on an icy surface like a crazed hockey puck, periodically shooting intense Hyper Beams". It's funny... [[BewareTheSillyOnes And devastating]].
* Remember Drake and his Ditto? The one that frustrates challengers to no end (and got a huge buff from copying Pikachu)? Lucario and Pikachu finally take it out (after ''three'' of Drake's other Pokemon come and go in the process): [[spoiler: Lucario used [[FastballSpecial Fling]].]]

** Except that he didn't need ''anything'' of this, as Misty could have lent him her Gyarados, Oak knows someone who has a Clefairy and has both a Focus Sash and a Silk Sash, Ash's Totodile can dance, Oak has ''twenty'' Heart Scales and, last but not least, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Muk didn't eat the Teleport TM]], so Gary could have just asked him for that. He still asks him to lend him Dragonite and ask Misty for her Gyarados, because he put so much time in making the list he could get ''something'' out of it.
