Episode 33 - The Flame Pokemon-athon!|
Ash, Misty, and Brock arrive on the famous Laramie Pokemon Ranch. A ranch where pokemon are raised the natural way, as wild pokemon and the meet the daughter of the family, Laura, and she explains that the big race that the ranch they hold each year is tomorrow. Also invites them to the party that they hold the night before the race.
During all the celebration, the Tauros on the ranch get into a fight. While the group was settling the pokemon down. Something spooked Laura’s Ponyta, the pokemon she would be racing with the next day, and Laura fell off her Ponyta and hurt her hand very badly. The spook was the cause of Team Rocket working for Dario; a mean Dodrio trainer would also be racing in the big race the next day. Laura thought about it and she came to a conclusion that Ash should race on her Ponyta the next day so the Laramie Pokemon Ranch still had a chance to win. Ash accepted.
At the starting line there were many racers ready. Some being: Ash on Ponyta. Misty on Starmie. Brock on Onix. Dario on Dodrio. Pikachu on Squirtle. The race began; Team Rocket was helping Dario by eliminating some contenders. One by one with holes, slingshots and smokescreens. After Team Rocket had gotten the race down to just Dario and Ash they were on the final stretch of land and Dario had the lead. Ash kept trying to get Ponyta to go a little faster and Ponyta evolved in Rapidash and with a photo finish Ash and his new friend, Rapisash won the race!
