(Japanese: ゆれる島の戦い!ドジョッチVSナマズン!! Shaking Island Battle! Dojoach VS Namazun!!) was intended to be the 101st episode of the Advanced Generation series, and the 375th episode of the Pokémon anime. It was set to air in Japan on November 4, 2004. The episode was skipped in Japan due to strong earthquakes in Niigata prefecture nearly a week before the first airing of AG100. It was also subsequently skipped in the English-language broadcasts, and has never aired in any other country as well. Also, the move Earthquake, alongside similar moves such as Fissure and Magnitude, have not been used in the anime since this event.



Ash Ketchum finishes the Mossdeep City Gym and his next goal is the final Gym at Sootopolis City. Ash and his friends journey toward Jojo Island on the way and are caught in an earthquake caused by a Whiscash. They then meet a Pokémon Trainer named Chōta and start a Whiscash extermination there.
