|Chapter Chapter 91:VS Murkrow|
|← Chapter 90||Chapter 92 →|
VS Murkrow is the 91st chapter of Hidenori Kusaka's Pokémon Adventures.
A woman works in the kitchen, an Aipom on her shoulder. She asks the Aipom to go wake Gold, her son. Aipom jumps off and scuttles down the hall, into a room filled with Pokémon. The Pokémon surround the chaotic bed of a deeply sleeping boy, a pile of books beneath his pillow, a Gameboy Color by his head, a shirt and hat hung on the bedposts, and a skateboard and billiards stick leaning against the bed. It takes an affectionate team effort to wake the boy, who dresses and goes downstairs.
Gold greets his mother, who immediately asks if he washed his face properly and complains that his hair is spikey again. Gold protests that spikey hair is "in" right now before he hops out on his skateboard.
Meanwhile, in Elm's Laboratory, Professor Elm is bent to a microscope. Remembering some regulations to fill out, he leaves the resting triangle of pokéballs containing Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile.Now nighttime, Gold plays billiards as he listens to the radio, enjoying Mary's song channel. However, suddenly the channel shorts out, irritating Gold greatly. Gold sees a shadowy figure in his backyard, and figuring that the guy must have messed with the house's antenna, immediately goes to confront him.
The figure turns out to be a young boy in pursuit of a thieving Murkrow, who had also stolen Gold's prized antenna. Gold uses his billiards stick to hit Aipom's pokéball up into the tree, where Aipom tied a rope to the bag and antenna and tossed them off the branch. The other end of the rope was connected to Gold, who was apparently lighter than the bag and antenna and is easily lifted as the bag lowers.
The boy cries out for the danger of Gold going so high, but Aipom secures Gold in his arms, his powerful tail holding them to the tree as they climb down safely. Gold is immediately greeted a swarm of Pokémon from his house, all of whom are relieved and concerned, and Gold reassures them.
Gold returns the boy's bag to him, introducing himself, and then realizes that he missed the end of Mary's song. Saying that the boy, Gorou, will have to give him a recording of it (which of course the boy doesn't have) Gold rushes back into his house.
