Cliché Episode with a Somewhat Interesting Legend

In this episode, Kai must overcome his fear of the water in order to convince people there is a shark in the pool. It is suspected that the shark is actually a Nanaue (a creature that is a shark in the water and a human on land). OK, now let's get to what really frustrates me about this episode. The bully. Why? Because all he does throughout the episode is act like a tool to get the plot going. If he was a dumb bully like in Happy Gilmore or a bully who really enjoys what he's doing, like Nelson from The Simpsons, I'd be a bit more open to it, but as is he nearly ruins the episode. But what saves the episode from being god awful is the legend I mentioned in the summary part. To me, its like the Bulgarian Miak from Earnest Scared Stupid in the way that I'm wondering whether or not its a real legend. I also like how the legend is used as clever foreshadowing.
