One Piece (Dub) Episode 268
The ninth season of the One Piece anime series was directed by Kōnosuke Uda and produced by Toei Animation. Like the rest of the series, it follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates from Eiichirō Oda's One Piece manga series. The majority of the season covers the "Enies Lobby" (エニエスロビー, Eniesu Robī) story arc, which adapts Oda's manga from the end of the 39th through the 45th volumes. Between Enies Lobby episodes there is the five episode arc "Straw Theatre & Straw Pirate Tales"[n 1] (麦わら劇場&麦わら海賊譚, Mugiwara Gekijō & Mugiwara Kaizoku Dan) and three episodes covering the "Historical Drama Boss Luffy" (時代劇 ルフィ親分捕物帖). "Ice Hunter" deals with the Straw Hats taking on the Atchino Family to retrieve their flag. The final episode is stand-alone storyline featuring Chopperman.

Back outside, the Bulbasaur and Squirtle see an apple from a tree, which Bulbasaur tries to grab. At the same time, a Meganium, accompanied by an Azumarill, also see the same apple. The two Grass Pokémon get into a heated tug-of-war over the apple. As the two Water-types receive their halves, Azumarill throws its piece towards Squirtle, hitting it in the face and knocking off the other half of the apple. As Meganium and Azumarill laugh at Squirtle's misfortunes, Squirtle's short-tempered side rears itself. Putting on its Squirtle Squad glasses, Squirtle prepares to pick a fight with the two, only to be restrained by Bulbasaur. As Bulbasaur tries to apologize, Azumarill slaps it in the face, bringing out Squirtle's anger once again. Bulbasaur easily shakes it off and tries once more to restrain Squirtle. As the two leave, Meganium's vine latches onto Bulbasaur, tripping it, and causing Azumarill and Meganium to laugh once again. Now with the better half of the duo also angered, the four Pokémon begin to fight each other. The catch up with Elm ends when everyone hears that a Pokémon brawl is happening outside, with Bulbasaur and Meganium involved. Ash and Jackson figure that their Pokémon are involved, and rush out. Seeing their Pokémon grappling, they try in vain to quell the fighting. Only when Harrison appears with Miltank does the fighting stop, by way of Heal Bell. As both Ash and Jackson thank Harrison for breaking up the fight, Officer Jenny arrives to see what the commotion was about, and warns that any brawls could get their Pokémon's Trainers disqualified. Harrison covers for Ash and Jackson, saying that the four Pokémon were only practicing against each other, with Gary appearing to back up Harrison's claim. With Officer Jenny gone, Gary and Ash exchange a bit of trash talk, before Gary leaves. 041b061a72
