Pikachu's Summer Vacation
On one summer day, Pikachu and the other Pokémon owned by Ash and his friends comes to Pokemon Land, a park only for Pokemon to spend their holiday. They are all joyful. However, after a while of their coming through the gate, Togepi starts to cry. He is now a baby, and hungry. Startled, yet wanting him to stop crying, Pikachu pulls his cheeks to make a funny face. Squirtle also tries, though in vain. Bulbsaur finds an apple ripe on a branch of a tree, and shoots leaves to cut it off. The fruit drops, and rolls to stop right before Psyduck. He takes it, and then, to Pikachu's surprise, eats it. Togepi weeps, his cry keener, until he fells asleep. Pikachu is relieved, but Raichu, Cubone, Maril, a mouse monster, and Bruno, a bulldog one, pass near them, chatting loudly. Squirtle asks the group to be quiet, making them angry. As Bulbasaur joins, two groups glares at each other, ready to fight. Pikachu tries hard to soothe them.
Togepi totters to a river valley, and onto a log over it. Pikachu turns pale, and follows onto it, crying, "Pipipi (means 'Togepi')." The log moves suddenly. Pikachu is startled, while Togepi is pleased. It rolls down the valley in a high speed, throwing Pikachu into the river. He looks around quickly for Togepi, finding him at a side of the valley. He sighs, relieved.
As he is back, carrying Togepi on his back, he gives another sigh to have seen the two groups still quarrel.
They decide to have Squirtle and Maril have a swimming match. Obstructed by some of other Pokémon, both swim with great guts, and Maril wins. But their fight doesn't finish, for they are not satisfied yet.
Raichu's electric sparks sparkle, hitting the ground near Togepi. Pikachu dashes near him, shielding him.
A spark hits Pikachu. He stiffens his body, shocked. Raichu and other Pokémon of his group laugh.
Pikachu looks back, his eyes lifted, and burning with rage. He goes close to Raichu, glaring at him. Raichu stares back. A tense hash is between them for all of a minute...
They dash out suddenly. They run and run and run, down paths, through a river, crashing against Pokemon on their way; Meowth, who sleep on a grassland, and Charizard. Charizard flares up, and dashes after them, but two naughty boys don't care. Charizard fails to capture them, as his head is pushed into a small hole.
Puzzlement are in minds of Pokemon, except for Raichu's group, including Charizard. The hole is too small for his head, and he cannot pull it out no matter how many times he tries to pull back. Pokémon tie his legs tight with the end of a long and thick rope, grips it and pulls it with all their mights. They try over and over, but Charizard's head is still in the hole. Tears fills his eyes, as he is scared.
Raichu and his group watch them, keeping a short distance. Pikachu goes near them, and asks, "pika, pika pika chu. Pikachu. (Help us. Please)" They agree with him, and goes to take the rope, except Cubone. They try harder, and Charizard's head is almost out, yet still in. Tears roll down his cheeks.
Cubone's hands grip at the point an inch before Pikachu's on the rope. Pikachu is delighted. They try once more, much harder. Finally, Charizard is pulled back, his head out the hole.
The Two groups are now friends. They repair places which have been destroyed by their fight, and play together the rest of the day. In the evening, Ash and his friends come to take Pikachu. As he calls Pikachu, a big smile is on Pikachu's face. "Pikapi! (Ash)" Pikachu runs straight into his arms.
