Interesting. I believe it airs today, so I guess I can assume we will have screenshots, too. maybe we will get to see some of its attacks. Either way, I love perap, so I am looking forward to this.

Does Perap speak human or say 'Perap' alot?

20th July 2006, 7:54 PM

I'm glad we get to see another funny episode. Perap looks very realistic to a parrot too hehe, can't wait to see the episode pics. Oh yeah, Donphan in the episode along with Brock's dance thing, plus Pikachu in a bow tie...priceless!

Seen the pictures.

Nothing much really happens in the episode. From what I saw, the COtD's Perap kept flying away from her and it seemed that there were a load of kids from an orphanage, who were the audience for all of the acts. Ash and Co. performed the different acts with their Pokemon alongside the girl and her Perap. Ash use Pikachu and Donphan. Brock and Corphish performed an act together (Brock with his Mexican costume on, lol). May uses her Eevee and Squirtle and Max uses Munchlax.

TR appeared again (after before trying to steal Perap), and tried to perform a comedy act in which James sent out his Cacnea (couldn't get the jist of what it was doing) and shortly after got dizzy and fainted. Then, Jessie used her Dustox against... Ash's Sceptile. Of course, Sceptile won and TR blasted off... again. Finally, it was just the traditional farewell in the sunset scene and Ash and Co. head off for the next destination.

Oh well, a couple of fillers showcasing new Pokemon after a run of eventful episodes (Grand Festival, etc.) doesn't hurt, does it. It was at least fairly entertaining.

Seen the pictures.

The episode starts with Ash and co walking down a path.
They then spot a Perap in a tree.

My god, Perap is cute.

They stare at it, Max being very excited about it. Suddenly a girl appears, calling out for Perap but it flies away. Cue the episode title.

Perap lands on a treestomp where Ash runs up to it and grabs it.

I so love that Perap, my lord.

Ash looks confused when holding it, though, so I estimate it repeated what he said.
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/022.jpg
Sure seems like it.

The girl runs up to Ash and he gives her the Perap while the rest of the gang approaches them.
I think the girl introduces herself and her Perap here where afterwards May Pokedexes the Pokémon.
Perap says something which makes the girl angry with it, so I bet it randomly repeated the Pokedex or what Max said afterwards.
The girl then introduces herself as a performer or something and the gang is excited to see what the two can do so they agree to watch.

The girl talks and Perap talks and the girl seems annoyed or something. I think it's part of the act. They suddenly go all "yo dawg"
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/059.jpg
Which is very very amusing.
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/065.jpg
The gang approves!

The girl then talks about how she apparently called out Perap some time ago and it randomly flew away with her in suit.
I can't really tell what it's about. Nor can she, really.

TR watch from a distance having a Gio fantasy about how lovely it would be for him to wake up to Perap and then read the newspaper with it.
Haha.
And when he yells at the incompetent Grunts then Perap would be a great help to echo it all which'll make Gio very happy. (I think Persian would end up eating it, though)

The gang is then seen walking with the Wakana-clone (let's just cal her that) and they suddenly meet two strangers, one with long whip-ish hair, the other with purple shoulder length hair, who also happened to have starred in a certain episode in Pewter Gym not so long ago, but let's no get into that.

I wonder who ever they could be, though?

They introduce some odd bags with happy faces on them.
Oh god, the beanbags have returned!

The Wakana-clone likes and she gets to hold them. They suddenly explode and Perap is taken with a metal arm thingie.

Oh GASPETH! The two people were in fact Team Rocket!
Who would've known?!

They're suddenly in their balloon with Perap trapped in a cage. Ash calls out Swellow to use Aerial Ace (I think) on the balloon, causing the cage with Perap to fall out.
Wow, that was quick.
Ash then calls out Aipom to use Swift, sending Team Rocket flying.

That was really quick!

Perap is safe but the Wakana-clone seems concerned.

http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/161.jpg
I swear, that Perap is CUTE!

They're suddenly at a house, having a meal.
Eh? Is it the Wakana-clone's house?
Oh well, suddenly Perap pops out of its Pokéball and flies away. The gang is shocked and follows.
Perap then flies in to the forest and gone it is.

This Perap has an obedience problem.

We suddenly see a girl sitting in bed while reading a book when Perap flies in and sits by the window, the girl being very happy to see it.
Eh?
Another girl comes in, followed by what seems like a nurse, also glad to see the parrot Pokémon. Perap also seems happy.

I'm so confused.

The gang approaches the window from the outside, seeing Perap. The nurse person sees them and they're now inside, looked at by a bunch of kids by the door.
I think this is a children's hospital then.

The girl who before sat in bed reading a book starts telling about how she met Perap sitting in a tree outside her window. She fed it cookies which gave it a crave for sugar so it continuesly came back to get more.
Either that or it became friends with the girl.
Either way, it constantly flew by to look to the girl, much to her glee while in her illness.
Well, now we know why it randomly flew away....

The Wakana-clone claims it's her Perap, though, much to the girl's displease so she runs off.
Not so ill after all then, huh?
Anyway, the Wakana-clone decides to perfom for the hospital's children with her Perap, the girl from before lying in her bed sulking meanwhile.
Max comes by her, though, probably to tell about the performing that's going on.

Brock is seen in his Paradise outfit likely singing his song. Corphish is assisting XD

Max sweatdrops at this, probably not the best referration to get the girl out of bed.
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/261.jpg
BLING BLING!

We then see Ash with his Donphan and Pikachu (while wearing a rather unflattering bowtie. My goodness)
Ash has his Donphan roll up and has Pikachu balance on it while it rolls about. However, Pikachu falls off, having the act to fail miserably. The kids are amused, though.
The ill girl who was in bed has now stood up and looks at the act from the window. It's now Max's turn to perform.

Which consists of throwing food at Munchlax for it to eat.
Wow.
The girl comes out and Max offers her to try. She tries and she's amused as well as the rest of the children.

My god, May's wearing the horrid bowtie too! XDDD

http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/284.jpg

It's now May's turn to perform with her Squirtle and Eevee.
Eevee shoots a Shadow Ball up in the air and Squirtle apparently uses its Ice Beam making everything glittery.
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/293.jpg
Awwwww.

It's now the Wakana-clone's turn and she wears a pink/red tophat. Hahahaha.
I don't know what they're saying but she and her Perap are making everyone laugh.
http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/311.jpg
The gang is making me laugh too but not necessarily because they're laughing.
XD

The happyfaced beanbags suddenly drop down and explode.
SHOCK, who ever could THAT be?!
GASP, it's Team Rocket!

IN UGLY CLOTHES!

http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i246/chatsey/blah/326.jpg
It's fashion disaster in today's Pokémon.

James suddenly cries, though (O_o) and we then see Jessie and Meowth holding fans, so maybe he cried because he was smacked?
lol
James then holds up an umbrella thingie with Cacnea hopping up on it but falls down.
Cacnea is knocked out!
Max says something which angers TR.
Oooohhhh.

They catch Perap and run off.
They stopped, probably by being yelled at and Jessie then calls out Dustox while Ash calls out Sceptile.
Sceptile easily dodges Dustox's Tackle and Poison Sting, and then Leaf Blades it. James calls out Cacnea only to find out that, IT'S STILL KNOCKED OUT!
XD
Sceptile uses Bullest Seed at Dustox.
Perap is suddenly free likely because of the aforementioned Bullet Seed and Wakana-clone has it use Peck on Meowth.
Sceptile then Leaf Blades TR off into the heavens.

Everyone's happy. YAY! The girl from before then approaches Wakana-clone and apologizes for her behaviour from before, I think, then she gives her something. Happy happy, they say goodbye, happy happy and then Wakana-clone is about to depart with Ash and co.

Talk talk, wave wave, bye bye, Ash is exicted and they then walk off, the end.

Comedy filler. YAY!

Wow, this took a while to post. DX

This just proves the writers have run out of character designs for the filler characters. After designing 400 minor characters, one would imagine they'd run out of designs.

So, a Parrap that can speak human speak. I might have known considering it's animal basis, but interesting for a Pokemon none the less.

Does Brock actually sing "Paradaisu", or just dance around in the costume?

.Bambi.
21st July 2006, 7:58 PM
Until I see the episode in action [and understand why everyone is laughing], this episode will be put under the "Boring Filler" category.

Yes, Perap was there, and trust me, I liked it. It's SO cute.
However, Team Rocket seemed to be the clincher in this episode because nothing else dramatic happens. I hate episodes like that >.>

Though one thing to note, every one of Ash's Pokemon made an appearence this episode...and they didn't even have a picnicking scene!

CyberCubed
21st July 2006, 8:00 PM

Considering the jokes in this episode will only be understood by the Japanese, most people would probably have to wait till its dubbed to judge it accurately.

This is an example of how their little rap thingy that was part of their act went:

Perap: "Pika-pika-pikachu, Quick Attack!"
Andi: "Quick Attack!"
Perap: "Pika-pika-pikachu, Thunderbolt!"
Andi: "Thunderbolt!"
Perap: "Pika-pika-pikachu, Rock Throw!"
Andi: "Wait, that's a Rock-type attack!"
Perap: *facefaults*

(Thanks to kthleen on Bulbagarden for translating that last line for me.)

And I have no idea what the rest of the different jokes were. But that example and the other one or two like it should make it into the dub intact, at least.

I was looking forward to this episode because I had been very fond of Perappu ever since it was revealed.

When reading the summaries I first thought that Perappu had some weird quirk and just randomly flew away all the time, but actually it always went to the same hospital to entertain the kids over there. It may be an overused plot, but I quite like those 'annoying-bugger-turns-out-to-have-good-intentions' Pokémon, other examples being Ash's Snorunt and the Linoone from AG113.

Anyway, Perappu was cute. I really liked everything about it - the way it repeated other people's lines and its voice in general, but also its various poses and gestures it did during the comic dialogue performance. I was taking screenshots like mad =D

It's also nice that Perappu doesn't only repeat things immediately after they were said, but can also remember certain lines for a while and say them over and over again. I liked it that those seemingly random things Perappu said to Anri and the others, like "I'll take your temperature now", "I don't like shots", "It's time for lunch" etc. eventually helped her figuring out where Perappu had went. It may not sound all that great, but for the Pokémon writers, it was pretty clever writing in my humble opinion ^^"

And at last, it was nice to see everyone of the group doing something for once. Granted, Brock only had the 10-second performance of Takeshi's Paradise, but it was good enough. At least Max got to partake in the little show as well as being the one persuading Chizuru to watch too. It's not much more than what Brock did, but eh. It was funny how TR tried making the group of kids laugh, but failed miserably - except that one time where Cacnea hugged James of course.

Well, overall I loved the combination of comedy and emotion this time, and, as I said, Perappu is/was insanely cute. I want a plushie of it!

22nd July 2006, 12:56 AM
Something tells me this is better in motion. Performing for hospital confined kids, rather touching for Pokemon but whatever. Well, at least Aipom didn't come in and give me a double dose of margness.

Monkeys and parrots are the devil.

It's only fitting they based a parrot-like Pokemon off a real parrot, and Perap just appeals to me because of its personality.

You kinda worded that in a funny way...how would you call it "parrot-like" in the first place if it wasn't based on a parrot?

KuwabaraTheMan
22nd July 2006, 7:21 AM
Holy Crap, that was freaking hilarious. When Musashi almost accidentally started the motto early, I couldn't stop laughing. Takeshi's failed attempt at making people laugh was hilarious. As was Rocket Gang's attempt at performing for the kids.

And the girl and Perap did was freaking hilarious. Especially with Perap's mistakes(Pikachu using a rock attack, Eievui using a grass attack). Wow, its been awhile since the crew has turned out such a funny episode of the series. I was expecting a decent filler, but I was entertained quite a bit. Excellent.

And yeah, she looks like Wakana's sister or something.

Bliksem
22nd July 2006, 6:24 PM
The episode was quite funny, despite me completely lack of knowledge when it comes to Japanese. Anyways, I did get a headache from the constant repetition, but hey, it was about a parrot.

I might add, though, that I had NO CLUE Donphan was quite so large. That thing gives me new respect.

Well, I suppose I have to edit. Unless Ash is only three feet tall, his Donphan is monstrously large.

Feity
22nd July 2006, 6:52 PM

Ok the episode is up on youtube (Just search "perap")

I thought perap would sound a bit cuter than it does (I still love it to death)
I also found plenty of parts in this episode to be hillarious
I really enjoyed it
8.8/10

And here's the Eevee verse:

Perap: "Eevee, Eevee, Tail Whip!"
Andi: "Tail Whip!"
Perap: "Eevee, Eevee, Razor Leaf!"
Andi: "That's a Grass-type attack!" (lightly knocks Perap, it facefaults off its perch, kids laugh)

Medea
23rd July 2006, 4:08 AM
Well, this was a pretty cute episode overall. Perap was both cute and annoying at the time. Of course, great to see Brock doing his little dance and in his costume...(he scared the children like if he were Michael Jackson :o) Oh, but then of course, that little girl...Hmm, and Perap's trainer was a little cuttie (she does remind me of Wakana too). But tis all I can really say on this episode.

You would think that May being a coordinator can make all these cool combinations for the kiddies, but the Eevee/Squirtle thing could have been much better.

Like this?


Haruka: "Zenigame, Withdraw! Eievui, Shadow Ball!"

[Zenigame goes into its shell, Eievui fires a Shadow Ball into a hole on its shell at point-blank range. Black smoke bursts out from every opening on the shell.]

Chidzuru: "Uh... is it alright?"

Haruka: "Heh heh... of course it is. ^^"

Chidzuru: "It isn't moving... and is that blood dripping out of its shell?"

Haruka: "^^' Oh... well... uh... XD that's just your imagination! Hey, look over there!" [quickly punts the lifeless shell off the screen while the children are distracted]

me: "Best... episode... EVER!!!"


But since that didn't happen... uh... I don't have much to comment on. Nice to see Heigani return to assist in Takeshi no Paradise XD, and I too noticed every one of Satoshi's Pokemon was used in this episode (the same could be said of Haruka, but sadly, Wakashamo couldn't make an appearance -_-). As for the rest of the episode, it was pretty cute (and might I say, Perap seems to really fit its namesake in those bits with Anri), but nothing to write home about.

The Big Al
23rd July 2006, 9:09 AM
LOL you've got a wicked sense of humor Yamato-san. Let's stuff Perap in with Squirtle so we can both die happy. Maybe even Aipom if there's room. Well, it get's rear handed to it next week so that doesn't matter.

Porygandrew
23rd July 2006, 2:20 PM
I hate Perap now. I used to like it, now it's just friggin' annoying.

Anyone else think Ash was a punk? I mean at the end Team Rocket was retreating already and they had blasted off earlier, so why kick a dog when it's down and make a cheap, back-handed attack like that to poor dustox?

And actually when that first started, my first thought was, "That stage's too small and the hospital kids are too close for a pokemon battle. It's too dangerous for them to be that close."
Then I remembered I was watching Pokemon and that common sense doesn't apply.

Beating up moths in front of little kids makes you feel like a big man!


Oh Yamato-San. Your unbridled hatred of Squirtle never fails to amuse. And many an Ecks Dee was had by all :p

So am I the only one to be slightly disturbed by the fact that the children's hospital had some pretty dire standards?
I mean, think about it. While the nurse was checking up on sickly-little-girl, Random the Perap flutters in through the window. And she seemed to be completely content with this assumedly wild bird prancing around in the same room as a sick child. Now, we all know it belonged to someone, but she didn't. So apparantly in the Pokémon World, it's OK to let wild critters enter a hospital? Pokémon World medical staff roolz!

When all I had to judge this ep by was a preview revealing very few details, it didn't seem like Perap was going to do anything remotely musical. Which, needless to say, would have been a little awkward considering it's got a quaver for a head. So I was pleasently surprised to see it perform that...uhh...rap...thingie.
Bah, but enough of that. The main thing is, in a bizzare twist of fate, I actually found myself smiling at the colorful bird's antics. So it's all good.

CyberCubed
23rd July 2006, 7:03 PM

Haha.

In any case though, the Eevee/Squirtle thing really makes you want to see double appeals during the next Contest arc.

It'll be one of the best ways to keep the appeals fresh and interesting, two Pokemon playing off one another with their attacks. Let's hope the writers realize this.

And Cybercubed, great idea! So, anyone know if Perap has the same voice actor as the movie one?

Chatsy
23rd July 2006, 8:57 PM
Yeah, it's such a lovely paradox that sick little children at a hospital are amused at watching creatures beat the crap out of eachother.
Though, one must admit that it's the perfect place to fight, eh? Not so far from getting aid and whatnot.

Of course, a Pokémon Center would've been more suitable...

-Pikachu fell off! The kids laugh! Yaaay!
-Max teleports from the girl's windowside to stage and simotaniously aquires a Horrific Bowtie of his own, along with a bowl of Pokemon food and a Gonbe to catch it as he throws it.
-The girl went outside! Max offers her the Pokemon food, not to eat but to throw at Gonbe, which she does.
-TEH GURL LAFFED ZOMG. And by now the ungrateful brat in the front row one seat left of the stage right-most seat is clapping, thus removing the "ungrateful" label.
-May has a Horrific Bowtie too!
-May does her appeal using two Pokemon, and would have gotten a 8.9 in her appeal if not for the fact that using two Pokemon is not allowed. Oh, and it makes sparklies that amuse the kids and all that.
-The kid in the front row one seat left of the stage right-most seat looks vaguely like Sabrina. O_o
-More fashion disaster! Wakanatwo has a Slightly Less Horrific Bowtie, Jail Attire Socks, high boots, and a red top hot.
-OH GOD THE BEANBAGS ARE BACK
-Another motto! With proper music this time!
-NOBODY KNOWS HOW TO DRESS IN THIS EP. DX AND THE BOWTIES! @_@
-Sounansu has a bowtie too. XD
-Ash-tachi have magically changed out of their horrendous outfits!
-Except for Wakanatwo.
-Kids: ":O"
-Musashi and Meowth hit James with fans! OLD SCHOOL KANTO STYLE FTW! :D
-Polka o Dolka music!
-Cacnea gives James a painful hug. The children LAUGH. Clearly they enjoy seeing others in pain.
-Cacnea falls off the rotating paper umbrella thing and is knocked out. What a pushover!
-Max makes a comment. TR IS NOT AMUSED. Cacnea is staying put with swirly eyes.
-OMG DUSTOX LIVES
-Jukain knocks back Dustox with a Generic Contact Move(since I can't tell waht it actually is. Probably Quick Attack). The kids are impressed. They DO enjoy seeing others in pain! Sadists!
-Jukain gets into *** Kicking Mode Deluxe once the kids start cheering for it. Jukain - It does it for the CHILDREN.
-TR:"Ohshit." Perap:"Huh? What's going on again?"
-Cacnea is sent out to battle again, but...it's still knocked out! Lawl!
-Dustox managed to deflect Jukain's Bullet Seed somewhat? Whoa.
-PERAP IZ FREE. And probably still has no clue what's going on. That bird dun care who it's with!
-But it Pecks Meowth at Wakanatwo's command. And then mimics the "itai nya itai nya!"s Meowth says. XD
-THE KIDS LAUGH ONCE MORE. God they love seeing other beings in pain too much.
-Ahaha TR started to fly away without Dustox. That symbolizes something, and you KNOW it.
-Poor Dustox is Leaf Bladed by Jukain. Despite it currently doing nothing but trying to catch up with the fleeing TR. Jee Ash, trying to entertain the kids even MORE with the pain of LIVING CREATURES?
-Oh, he was just helping it catch up to TR's balloon. Which BLOWS UP once Dustox hits it.
-Yana! Yana! Yana! Yana! YANA KANJI!
-So so so so sooooounansu!
-And the girl gives Wakanatwo a tin of the cookies Perap always liked. SWEET! In the "mmm, cookie" way. Dammit, now I want cookies.
-Moral of this story:Pain amuses children.

The new episodes will probably stop this week, if you notice, they convieniently scheduled it so that Perap would air on monday, in other words, bvefore any shinou pokemon were introduced. Chances are, they wanna at least advertise pearl/diamond first.

I thought this was an amusing episode to sorta break Americans into the upcoming release of Diamond and Pearl. Chatot sounded exactly what it was supposed to sound like: a parrot.

I have one question though: when Brock is doing his little song, is that supposed to be a translation of the Japanese version or is it just made up English lyrics?

Eh.... This was an ok episode. The more they said Chatot's name, the more it sunk in with me. I just think that NOA gave it horrible spelling. Chattot is a little eaiser on the eyes for me.

Quote of the episode: "Cacnea's dizzy without being blonde". It was so stupid it was funny.

Back when this aired in Japan, I was hoping for Ash would catch it . After hearing that awful word mimicing, and I thought Mime Jr. was bad, I wouldn't be able to stomach it.

Yawwwwwwn. 4 out of 10 from me. They could have thought of a better story to debut Chatot in after the new Pokemon drought.

I'm not fond off the way Chatot was pronounced. I've been saying "CHAT-it" because it sounds more like "parrot" than "Chat-TOT" does. The emphasis on "Tot" annoys me because it implies that Chatot is a baby. I mean, I'm not one to argue with PUSA about their pronounciations (They cleared up the whole Bonsly fiasco, after all), but I think "CHAT-it" rolls a lot better, quite frankly.

Also, Carina's voice annoyed the crap out of me. She sounded like an even more obnoxious Lisa Ortiz.

No, I'm right behind you.

I wasn't too fond of this episode (either version for that matter). Perap (or Chatot) was VERY annoying (even though it was indeed a cute thing)

The only thing that was kind of cute was the rap and that's all I can really comment on.

Oh and Brock's little song and dance thing kinda sucked.

Oh hell. I erased it off my DVR cause I thought it was a dredful episode. To be honest dude, there really never was a time it sat alone without someone talking and it repeating. I think it just kept saying the last thing over and over again till someone else got it goin.

Gah! I was hoping someone would give Chaot a cracker without water to wash it down.

In her flashback when Chatot first ran off, when she first released it from it's Pokeball, I could've swarn it had it's japanese voice, But i'm not entirely sure.


Anyways, I did enjoy this episode alot. Yay dubbed Takeshi's Paradise (Yet they couldn't have kept the music for when Rocket-dan was on stage or the symphonic medly..>\) Chatot's voice did kinda annoy me at first but It grew on me

Chatot pecking Meowth in the original version Chatot copied "Itai Itai Itai Itai"
But I think I prefered it in the English version, and Meowth's response "Hey! I don't sound like that!" and Chatot's "Yes you do!" Made me Lol

I gave the Japanese version a 9/10
and this one a 7.5/10

Btw, Ash's voice has gotten alot better by now.

Oh there are lots of girls, I'm in my happy place!
So la la la, this is my paradise! Oh live on!

Actually, the only part of the lyrics closer to the Japanese version are the "La la la la la la" bits he never said anything about liking the song or singing along in the Japanese version. It's all about the pretty girls, which is what 4Kids lyrics were about.

Okay, first things first, Chatot was pretty funny. Though when not copying people's "quotes" it sounded like Pidgey(though someone did mention Noctowl and now that i think about it Noctowl sounds more appropriate). The episode wasnt bad at all, i think it's one of the better BF filler episodes in a while. IMO, May's little part with the "contest" thingy could have been slightly longer. Since it did sort of look like a mini fireworks display, maybe they could have done about five or six of those at varying strengths. Would have been cool.

Also, when Ash and co. first meet Chatot they pronounces it as : Chat-ot, whereas when Aida(i think that's her name) seems him she pronounces it: Cha-tot.

The whole storyline was pretty clever and actually made the whole cast seem intelligent for once!(Well you hopefully understand what i meant by that). It would have been good to see Chatot using another attack than Peck, but actually having it attack was good enough.

The voices, oh my god. Great! They have now reached near greatness. Im not sure when it was, but if the voice actors continue to keep up this work, then for sure they'll do great as replacements(Meowth on the other hand, is sort of starting to irritate me).

One thing bugs me: When Ash's Sceptile uses Leaf Blade on Dustox, it spins and hits the balloon, causing it to explode. I would have thought that it would just puncture the balloon.

Otherwise a pretty good episode. I once had the opportunity to see the japanese version, but i didnt bother. This one is alright.

(note: i forgot to mention a few other things, but when i rewatch it, i'll bring them back here.)

edit: I dont know if anyone else noticed this, but Chatot's voice sounded somewhat similar to the doctor's voice. I dont think it's even near correct, but that's what it sounded like to me.

9/10.

Don't forget the fact that some things may explode for absolutly no reason at all.

Its an okay ep, I'm really waiting for the Weavile episode though.

I liked the episode okay. Of course, I question if what they were dioing can actually be called "rap", but it was entertaining enough. As far as it's voice goes, the only time I noticed Chatot using what sounds like a Noctowl call was when it flew away in the flashback.

On a related note, the credits gave witness to the return of the ambiguous Matt Mitler (he was also in the first season credits). Does anyone have any idea who this guy is?

I don't get Perap. Certain elements of it's behavior make it seem sentient, such as specific points in that 'comedy' routine and the fact that it was aware of the children's plight, while other aspects seem to contradict this. If Perap is able to imitate and memorise human speech, why can't it communicate with humans on it's own?



In her flashback when Chatot first ran off, when she first released it from it's Pokeball, I could've swarn it had it's japanese voice, But i'm not entirely sure.
I've seen the episode now, so I can tell you that it certainly wasn't it's japanese voice, but they had the voice actor try and imitate it~ Works for me.


Also, I'd like to mention that the name 'Chatot' sounds a hell of lot less painful after you've heard it for a full 20 minutes.

The name Chatot is horrible for me and the Pokemon too. It was so annoying. I didn't like the episode I didn't even paid attention to the episode. It was boring.

I always wanted Chatot to be called Blabird

I liked this episode. Chatot was really funny, the quotes I liked was when Meowth said "I don't talk like that!" and Chatot responded, "Yes you do!", and the comedy routine it did with Ada, "Shake that tail, baby!", "How about a Razor Leaf, baby?", lol. Brock bringing back the Takeshi's Paradise song was pretty good too. Even though it was a filler, it was good, I give this a 9.5/10.

I wasn't too sure about this episode. The chatot was probably the thing I liked best about the episode. Almost every time it opened its mouth it had me cracking up. I loved its imitations of Wobbuffet and Mime Jr. especially. I also LOVED this dialogue:

-- Meowth: "Hey, dat's a sharp beak ya got!"
Chatot: "Dat's a sharp beak ya got."
Meowth: "I don't talk like that!"
Chatot: "Yes you do." :D

Otherwise, I wasn't overly impressed with the episode. Seeing Brock do "Takeshi in Paradise" again was a hoot, and I loved Max commenting on Brock's one-track mind, and James telling the twerps that Jessie's in therapy made me LOL, but otherwise the episode wasn't great. At least it was an opportunity to see another pokemon from the next generation, the first one not showcased already in the eighth movie, though.

Overall, 6/10. At least the weavile episode next week looks promising.

When did it come on and when will it rerun??

And I heard somenoe say Peraps US name is Chatot, Please tell me whoever told me that lied

It is called Chatot, well thats the English name for it. And well I didn't really like this episode, too sad. You know? Sick kids just makes me all guilty of being a healthy person. And being more lucky.

But Yeah, It was kind of a boring episode really. The only good bit was watching Brock dance and sing for "The Ladies" Lol... Hes one funny dude. For the introduction of a Shinou Pokémon, and a introduction of any of them, it seemed pretty average since the only thing was the Chatot was caring and that was all... nothing else after that. 5/10

Hopefully this next episode does better.

9th January 2007, 6:26 AM
I think you should find out on www.tv.com It should have what you want to know. But it was pretty much A girl who was in a comedy duo with her Chatot and the Pokémon would always fly away and the gang and the girl just found out that the Pokémon was always visiting the hospital and cheering up sick kids and stuff. Thats pretty much it.

Well a return to Johto doesn't really seem so bad, We haven't seen it in years, I mean their already back in Kanto for the Battle Fronteir (Although I prefer the idea of it being a artificial Island off of Hoenn)

Not me. I hope we don't go back there, a part of me wants them to go back for some quick battles at the Johto League. But I doubt it. Anyway, It does seem a little funny how that comedy thing just happens to be in the Johto Region.

Are you kidding? Chatot is a perfectly good name. It's cute and straight to the point. Plus it chats, it doesn't rap at all.

The name Perap sounds like a Bronx cheer to me (especially if you say it slowly). It's ugly and doesn't fit the Pokemon. The only reason Perap could conceivably fit is because its head is shaped like a music note, but that's not a good enough reason. It doesn't rap either so that's out.

Other than that, to stay on topic, I loved the episode, especially when Chatot imitated Meowth and ultimately ticked him off.

That's because the jokes were difficult to translate for the American audiance.

I found this one quite dull despite it being Chatot's anime debut.

I didn't find it that stupid, Chatot is the one who made up what probably would have been a boring episode otherwise. I liked how Chatot would repeat them, it's nice for it to visit the hospital.

I checked that after I read it.
I never noticed that before!

Anyway, This episode wasn't too great, in my opinion.
The only thing that saved it from complete and total suckage was Chatot itself. That bird was actually kind of cute and funny!
Oh, and I guess the all-too-brief Sceptile battle was good too.
My rating: (never given these before!) 3.5-4/10.

At least the next episode looks better.
Seeings how it has one of my newest favorite Pokemon in it.

This episode was ok... It was cool to see Chatot for the 1st time. It was cool how it could imitate People's voices just like a parrot. It was cool to see the Gang, girl and the Chatot performing at the Hospital. The Boss fantasy about Gio and Chatot reading the newspaper together was funny. Chatot is really great entertaining the sick kids at the hospital. Brock looked hilarious in the costume and the mustache. That orange Polka-dot Bowtie was odd-looking.

19/100

I enjoyed this episode. Seeing Chatot for the first time was nice, I liked how it could imitate other peoples voice. It's good to see Chatot entertaining the sick children at the hospital. Also, Ada was really cute!

Brock was hilarious in that costume and mustache, his 'dance' was funny. Sadly the children didn't seem to like it and thought it was awkward. Oh well, at least Ash and his Pokémon managed to make the children laugh.

Team Rocket were annoying as always. As usual, they got blasted off AGAIN!
