Plot
Ash, Misty, and Brock left Saffron City in shame, defeated by the psychic power of lovely Sabrina's Pokémon in Psychic Surprise. Now they're compelled to search the haunted Lavendar Town for a ghost Pokémon--their only chance to defeat Sabrina and earn Ash's Marsh Badge. In the first of these three very spirited episodes, the trio braves a ghoulish mansion, the antics of various spooky Pokémon, and an out-of-body experience. But it's all in good fun, and certainly more creative than your average Scooby-Doo plot. Having befriended Haunter through his humor, Ash confidently leads his team back to Sabrina's gym, only to be humiliated once again by the scowling beauty and her smiling alter-ego doll when Ash's new ghost Pokémon gets spooked. Luckily, the mysterious bearded man returns to help him rescue his buddies and empower his team of loyal Pokémon. In the third episode, Ash utilizes constructive force--and Charmander--to capture the wild Primeape. With their imaginative plots, smartly detailed animation, and distinctive characters, Pokémon videos always offer an entertaining feast for young eyes and ears. Stories rely on dialogue and action scenes geared toward 5-year-olds and up; any "violence" usually is limited to Pokémon face-offs and doesn't involve guns. Occasional guffaws and humorously distorted facial expressions add to the lightweight nature of this 75-minute collection. Followed by Fashion Victims. --Liane Thomas
