Pikachu and The Rumours is a Friturtoons episode.
Some children are upset that their playground has been closed, but before Pikachu can tell the others Piplup butts in with news that Pidgeot has been hired to show a special visitor around Sinnoh. A few days later, Buizel is travelling to Knapford when he sees Pidgeot and goes down the wrong line into a tunnel being bored. Pikachu is worried that Buizel will be scrapped, but Ash laughs and says Pidgeot was hired so the man could find a new site for the playground from the air, and the man declares that the sand cleared from the tunnel will be perfect for the playground.
