Pikachu’s Vacation

Pikachu and his pokémon buddies are spending time at a relaxing resort for pokémon. However soon Togepi is unhappy and Pikachu, Squirtle and Blubasaur try to cheer him up. Their efforts attract the attention of some other pokémon, including a Raichu (the evolved form of Pikachu) who accidentally thunder shocks Togepi, starting a bitter competition between his and Pikachu’s gang.
