Rescue Axew! The Den of Durant!!!

During a training battle, Ash gets a massive surprise when his Swadloon evolves into Leavanny who brings fun to the group in the creation of masks and headpieces. However, shortly afterwards, a group of Durant arrive and kidnap Axew after mistaking it for food. Ash & co. have to go and find Durant and rescue Axew before it gets eaten. Will they succeed?

The episode starts with Swadloon and Emolga battling.

Swadloon's doing well, cool.

Swadloon evolves.

no sign of 'friendship' for the evolution...whatsoever!

Ash is really happy about the evolution and thanks Emolga for helping out!

Hahakomori is kinda creepy! The way she(?) goes ha ha ha

Snivy looks supercool with her leaf collar thingy

Kibago gets kidnapped....

Scraggy realizes that first and is really upset about it....so sweet!

The group finds the durant 'mold'... hahakomori is smart and leaves a string trail from the cave entrance so that they can trace their way back

Kibago sleeps through the whole ordeal....lol

Movie trailer....YAY!

Iris likes Axew's leaf suit. I think it's cute.

It's something time.

They're now resting and some wild Durant appear.

Axew gets kidnapped.

Scraggy wakes up, notices and is upset.

Even Emolga helps to search and she finds the kidnappers.

Emolga brings them to Axew's whereabouts.

Dare Da? Axew.

They're searching for Axew inside a cave. I love how much screen time Leavanny is getting.

The fact that the writers totally miss out on the opportunity to give one of the main team the fastest Steel type is downright foolish.
Leavanny acts too feminine to be a dude, Swadloon had its own personality which was kinda rebellious now its too caring. There's no integrity within the Sewaddle line.

They hatch a plan and Ash is in his Leaf disguise, thanks to Leavanny.

Scraggy wants to do the same.

The plan is taking place and the Durant take the bait.


Rotom Trainer
Ash is dressed up once again.

What's Leavanny doing with that string?

Oh well, they're in the Durants' hideout now.


Sick of dealing with idiots.
The Durant are now aware and they're pretty mad.

Scraggy tried to Headbutt one, but it used Protect.

Leavanny used Energy Ball and Emolga used Hidden Power.

Now Pikachu's Iron Tail and Scraggy's Hi-Jump Kick.

Scraggy missed I think.

Emolga used attract but one or some weren't affected.

Why couldn't Ash's Leavanny know Air Slash, it would make a dent on those robotic arthropods.

Iris has saved Axew and he's still asleep. -__-

Pikachu Thunderbolts the Durant and Scraggy lands a perfect Hi-Jump Kick.

The Durant are now happy.

They're out of the cave and it's the end of the episode.

They had a chance to throw a pokeball, but no the writers were too chicken to give them a Durant.
Well we got Leavanny at least. I don't get their ideas sometimes.
