After a stop in Pallet Town, Ash, Misty and Brock set out to find a rare and mysterious Pokéball for Professor Oak. Their quest leads them to the Orange Islands, where Ash decides to battle in the Orange League Tournament. With new friends to meet, new Pokémon to discover, and tough new trainers to challenge them, the adventures never end for Ash and his friends!
The Orange Islands continuity (1999) serves as a bridge between the longer Pokémon storylines about the Indigo League (1997) and Johto League (1999) adventures. Professor Oak sends Ash, Misty and Brock to the Orange Islands to retrieve the mysterious GS Pokéball found by fellow researcher Professor Ivy. When they reach her lab, moonstruck Brock comes to a decision to stick with the Professor and her three female assistants. Ash and Misty are soon joined by Tracey, a “Pokémon Watcher” in training who sketches. After the forever amorous Brock, he makes a reasonably bland companion, even though the caricatures of Groucho Marx and Clint Eastwood they encounter liven things up a bit. The characters roam aimlessly from island to island, escaping the snares of the inept Team Rocket, who stalk them in a submarine disguised as a giant Magicarp and a balloon that looks like Meowth. Ash wins the Coral Eye, Sea Ruby, Spike Shell, and Jade Star badges, which qualify him for the Orange League Tournament, where he in the end learns to make his recalcitrant Charizard obey him. These stories lack a narrative arc: Ash’s battles at the quite a lot of gyms don’t escalate, nor is there any sense of urgency to the mission to go back the GS ball. The adventure concludes with Ash, Misty, and Tracey returning to Pallet Town, just in time to encounter the long-absent Gary. Professor Oak invites Tracey to turn out to be his assistant, so Brock, who’s been jilted by Ivy and her assistants, sets out with Ash and Misty for the Johto League. (Rated A, suitable for All Ages: minor caricature violence. –Charles Solomon
