Pichu version

Synopsis

The two versions of this song each tell a story of a Pokémon with a problem, which is ultimately resolved after a long series of unlikely events involving other Pokémon. The first and slower version of the song is about a Pichu that's in a bad mood. It angrily shocks a Meowth so that its skeleton is revealed. A passing Cubone mistakes the shocked Meowth for another Cubone and shakes its club as a greeting. Inspired by Cubone's moves, a Marill starts to sing, which causes a group of Bellossom to start dancing. The dancing Bellossom cheer up the depressed Pichu who becomes cheerful again.

From EP152 to EP156, a different version of the song with a faster tempo beat and different lyrics was used as the ending. Because of the faster tempo beat, this version is commonly referred to as Exciting² Pokémon Relay (Japanese: ポケモンはらはら²リレー Pokémon Hara Hara² Relay) or Exciting Exciting Pokémon Relay (Hard Version) (Japanese: ポケモンはらはらはらはらリレー(むずかし版) Pokémon Hara Hara Hara Hara Relay (Muzukashi Ban)). In a similar way, the 2001 Whiteberry version of Aim to Be a Pokémon Master is a remix of song first heard in 1997 with Rica Matsumoto as the artist.

Synopsis

In this version, a Ditto is incapable of transforming. This causes the Pokémon Mimicry Association to look for a new mascot. They eventually pick a Sudowoodo as their new mascot. The Sudowoodo celebrates its promotion by launching some fireworks which accidentally knock a passing Ledyba out of the sky. The Ledyba falls towards an Electabuzz in the middle of a baseball game who mistakes it for a baseball and catches it. Thinking Electabuzz caught a real baseball, the Meowth that's acting as umpire shouts to end the inning. Ditto, who was watching the entire thing is so confused that it unintentionally manages to transform.
