On their way through Eterna Forest, Ash & Co. meet up with a trainer called Cheryl. She is looking for Sweet Honey so she can get some really rare Pokémon. Having found some Burmy, she learned that it has many different evolved forms. Having obtained three of them, Cheryl is trying to evolve her final Burmy to see what it will become. Team Rocket however have their eyes set on this Worm Family. Will they be stopped?

I saw this episode on T.V. It is pretty awsome. One of the better episodes IMO.

What a great episode. Burmy is one comical character. I loved it whenever it used its vine because it looked super-cool, and it was a laugh when it charged at Turtwig but then fell over and lost all its leaves. Speaking of losing its leaves, how the hell does it put it back on? It just seemed to move them around with its head.

Lol at the Burmy/Team Rocket scenes, especially when Wobuffet popped up with a melon and some chocolate on a plate, and when Meowth knocked out Burmy and everyone cheered only for them to suddenly remember that they wanted Burmy to win.

One of the funniest points of the episode, however, was Chansey slapping the hell out of everything and throwing its egg at its opponents. Ouch.


The episode's only downside is that Mothim sounds like a demented sheep :/

LOL Burmy needs to get some glue. Mothim was cool and I liked seeing Wormadam. Wish Ash had gotten to battle all 3 Wormadams and Mothim at the end though. Oh well good episode overall and a nice deubt for Burmy's family.

I didn't like this episode, its a very typical filler where a Pokémon evolves. The Minomadams were very stale, they looked like figures. The Team Rocket plan was very old and Giovanni scenes where very disgusting. I liked when Minomutchi used it's whip but the rest of the episode was a little bit boring. They didn't feature Mothim very well, they should have explained the evolution better.

The animation was great though.

This episode was a little too 'been there, done that' for my tastes. The whole thing was essentially just a different take on the old Paras episode, only with a more interesting pokémon line and a different motive from Team Rocket. Yeah, it had it's highlights, and it did do a decent job with showcasing everyone's faourite nekkid bug, but I don't think that was enough to save this episode from being rather tedious.



The animation was great though.
LO...*ahem*
Maybe it was pretty decent for a Kinoshita episode, but that's not saying much at all. Calling something like this great is a massive overstatement :/

Seviper and Carnivine look awesome together. They look fierce.

So, Staravia is the pokemon that appears in every episode but only 2 seconds. It's been happening a lot. Almost in every episode.

Mothim looks so awesome and Burmy was great! I liked the episode.

I laughed. I really did. And to think you called the animation in the Pachirisu episode horrible...

Anyways, as Gravy said, this was pretty much a slightly-less-crappy version of "The Problem With Paras" (one of Kanto's worst episodes, for the record). The Giovanni fantasy was so disturbing I couldn't help but chuckle up a storm, though. And since we've been low on new debuts lately, three in one episode certainly is nice. I'm just hoping Wormadam does something in the next two episodes, as it quite literally didn't do a thing here.

What was Nyrath´s plan anyway? Polish Sakaki with the bug pokemon into an all-shiny speedo-man? ^^;

The episode had decent animation for a kinoshita episode, but that´s all. There were many little colouring errors and a few off-models, the battles were mostly just stale images, but overall Kinoshita improved.
Still,...calling th animation great...If it wasn´t a comment from MK I´d say it was irony..^^;


I agree with S.Suikun ad Gravy, this episode was too much of a (..should I say it...) rehash...of older evolution-helping episodes that I can´t really enjoy it as much as if it was something new and fresh.

Still, the episode had its moments and wasn´t bad per se.

I think it was something along the lines of finding the sweet honey, and having Giovanni coat himself in the stuff so he could attract lots of (possibly...most likely....definately horny) random pokémon. Innovative!
Of course, to actually find the honey, they assumedly needed a Garmeil to sniff it out...that's where the whole 'evolve the nekkid bug' stuff came in.

Y'know, I wonder if Gio really does have a body like that, or if it's just Meowth's wishful thinking...

Help episodes are not usually the best episodes because you already know what is going to happen. I think the only "help episode" that I liked was the one with May and the gang helping Swablu to fly.

Nice to see a bit of nod to the girl they meet in this ep being as she helps you through the eterna forest in the game :)

None the less a good episode.

I was really impressed by Cheryl's design. She looks great, she would make a great rival for Dawn.

Zaraze

In the game does she have a Burmy/Wormadam/Mothim?

Anyways it wasn't nearly as bad as the Drifloon episode. And hopefully Mothim attacks Gardenia in the next episode.

So if the egg is Happiny, then that means that we are going to have another brain damaged pokemon?

I doubt it because I think Happiny's egg will be obtained in the Cosplay episode.

It would be interesting if the egg hatched to Happiny and was given to Brock, which he will get anyway.

However, we are getting off-topic from the episode. It looked okay, but I quickly thought of it as another paras-evolution episode from Kanto. I can still remember the episode so well...

21st April 2007, 1:53 AM
Seemed like a nice filler, judgiung from the pics. Great to see taht they're giving us the team uppers, expecially this girl, whose name I've forgotten. SHe has to have one of the best character designs ever. Have to make up for the lack of Team Galactic somehow.
Oh and a battling Chansey! I liked the Burmy, too.

SO it's kind of a mix of the Paras episode, the Donphan episode, AND the Shuckle epsiode. Helping a poke evolve, finding something important(Sweeet Honey), and becoming horney to attract pokemon(ala Shuckle's juices).


Weel it's good that the animé is following some of the game elements.
Amen to that!

Oh, and so gald I don't have to scourge the internet fro DP anymore! SHOuldn't be too long before we in the US cathch up.

I agree with the whole 'this episode is the Problem with Paras' Episode. It just kinda fell a little flat, though there were some rather good moments (Such as Meowth defeating Burmy then realizing it was supposed to lose.)

So Cheryl's pulling a Richie? If it wasn't for the fact that she has three of the same pokemon (albeit different types) I would think she would have the potential to stay on with the gang (considering this season of pokemon has been throwing us curve balls). I'm curious on where this could go.

Problem with that is(and as interesting as that would be-i'd have on objections) is she isn't shown in the movie previews and she wouldn't really have a role in the gang. i could see her being hte one to give the Happiny egg to Brock though.

I just now say the episode & i wanna know if anyone has pointed this or not. When Cheryl captured the Burmy the pokeball bip 7 times. Normally in the show i have seen the pokeball bip 2 to 3 times & 4 times if it is a very strong pokemon. But i don't think Burmy is that strong that it took so much time for it to get captured.

Dax
23rd April 2007, 3:57 PM
I just watched the episode and I was hooked from the beginning thanks to Aipom. I thought it was funny how the element of the game was incorporated in the anime.

Even that it wasn't an amazing episode I enjoyed myself. Burmy was really funny especially when he was with Team Rocket.

Cheryl was a good character, with an amazing design and great pokemons. I'm not convinced about her three Wormadam because I honestly thought they were boring. Her Chansey was really weird, that poor thing in the egg must be traumatized. How many times did Chansey use that egg to hit the opponent?

Carnivine and Seviper together is a complete win. They both have mean designs and I loved the mean image they portrayed when they are together.

Mothim voice was kinda ehhh. I agree that the pokemon sounded like a sheep. I honestly think he deserved a better voice because this one really doesn't fit. And I didn't like the fact that he wasn't so active in the episode. He evolved practically in the final scenes

I would like to see a Dustox vs. Mothim battle.

Anyway, it was good, not great but good. Hopefully Gardenia vs. Ash will be better.

Saw the episode. I like it very much. Burmy was really funny from the start, when it fell from the tree and gathered its leaves quickly. But the best part must be when it was with Team Rocket.
Cheryl's appearence is great, too.

This episode was very good. It was good to see Attract in the anime. It was also cool to see an Egg Bomb in the anime (I don’t recall seeing it before). It was really cool to see the 3 different Wormadam. It was very funny when Burmy ate all of TR’s food. It was hilarious when TR wanted Wobbuffet used Counter against Burmy, Burmy using Protect against Wobbuffet, the battle between Meowth and Burmy, and Meowth accidently KOing Burmy. It was cool to see a Mothim.

Based on that image, I can probably see why.

This was a nice episode, but I don't understand why Burmy would just use tackle when it was able to use hidden power all along. Other that that, everything pretty much falls into place.

I loved this episode, Team Rocket was actually pretty funny this time. Wobbuffet never gets old to me, haha. I liked when they cheered that Meowth won but realized they had to lose lol. Also Wobbuffet trying to block Burmy and getting pwned was pretty funny, even tho I love the blue blob :) Also Team Rocket's Pokemon actually dodging an attack from Pikachu, wtf! lol That was pretty awesome actually, they must be getting a little better finally.

Meowth: Now its time for us to fly across the land!
Wobbuffet: WOBBUFFET! XD

lol XD

Hm, I really didn´t like Cheryl in the beginning but she grow a bit in the end. Liked her Grandpa comments and Brocks "what a man" comment. :D

Even if she is going to stay a few eps I don´t think she is the "right" fourth member of the group (long time member). But for a few eps she can be ok I guess.

Some funny moments so I give the episode 6/10 overall.

Disregarding the edit, it was a pretty good dub. Cheryl sounded like I thought she would, and the Counter VS Protect bit gave me a little chuckle. Only thing that sucked is that Wormadam was shafted to like 15 seconds of screentime.

Not really sure. They don't show who does whom during the credits. However, Michelle Knotz, the new voice actress from Misty, is credited despite not showing up at all. I can only assume that Cheryl is actually voiced by Michelle Knotz. But don't take my word for it.

It could be Emily Jeness, cause you see her in the credits.

Overall not a bad episode. Croagunk "trying" to jab Brock but having it taken away by Cheryl who completely ignores Brock and uses that saying to "avoid" him(I don't mean that literally, but you get the idea). Why did this episode remind me so much of "Problem with Paras", having Team Rocket battling it to make it evolve, though there it was to boost confidence.

Here's what confused me: Burmy uses that thing on its head to "fling" Wobbuffet once Ash and co. arrive. Why couldn't it have done this in the first place when battling it originally?

Anyhow, not bad.

Oh God, Cheryl, Sinnoh's answer to Marina (the Raikou episodes). I've been trying to block out the memory of that character's voice since the three-parter aired. Needless to say I really hated the Eterna Forest three-parter (apart from Gardenia). The burma story was cute, and I LOL'd at the part when burmy lost its leaves and quickly gathered them back up, but Cheryl really ruins this episode. And I like her so much in the games.

11th June 2009, 5:32 AM
Call me shallow, but I like Momi a lot for her looks, not her personality. While I'm glad they gave a game partner a full three episodes, she is hardly an interesting character. That said, she ranks on the upper tier of Pokemon girls in terms of looks. In her debut, of course, she appears as a green-haired stick figure courtesy of Ms. Kinoshita. If that weren't enough to repulse me, they just had to rehash "The Problem With Paras", which is a candidate for the most horrid episode of the first season. Things like Minomutchi's indecent exposure, the Sakaki fantasy, and the fact that Garmeil is a pretty cool Pokemon save it from being as bad, but it's still bad.

Minomadam is the real victim here. We see its various forms out of their Pokeball for a split second and then never again in Momi's three episodes. Since then, its rock form has gotten a brief appeal under Ulala and nothing else. The entire attempted method for evolving Minomutchi is incredibly boring, using every element that made the Paras outing so dreadful (even recycling Nyasu's involvement). There were a few comical moments sprinkled throughout, but Momi is overall fortunate that the writers gave her an additional two episodes (Mira, who also gets a mediocre episode, is not as lucky).

Re-watching this episode a few days after seeing HP & tHPP made me realise that Cheryl strongly reminds me of Luna Lovegood, due to her voice and some of the things she keeps on saying.

Something which only made me enjoy this episode so much more the second time around.

Hmm I liked it. Cheryl had an interesting debut episode and she got her own mini-arc; something I wasn't expecting for her character at all. I didn't like that Burmy and it's evolutions appeared in this one though. Sinnoh seems to have debuted many Pokemon at the same time and that made some of the later episodes lag due to a lack of new Pokemon to showcase. Fun Eterna Forest episode nonetheless. 7/10.

I don't see the Boss fantasy that disturbing, although a bit weird (Especially if he is actually naked, takes notes that there is no shirt anywhere on his arm).

Anyways it was a so and so episode, although I don't think it should have gone on for three episodes (The part that made it interesting was Gardenia, wish she had been in all three, including when they found the Amber Castle).
Definitely like the Paras episode except for Burmy having no leaves on it. It was nice that evolved aleast.

This episode was ok... It was cool to see Plant-Cloak Wormadon, Sand-Cloak Wormadon, Trash-Cloak Wormadon, and Mothim for the 1st time. It was cool to see a Plant-Cloak Burmy again. It was very smart for Cheryl to use a Chansey that knows Attract to find out if the Burmy was a male or not. It was great that they explained about the male/female gender-only evolutions for Burmy. Burmy looked cool when it used its vine to attack TR. It was funny when Meowth knocked out Burmy when he was supposed to be allowing Burmy to win.

That just improved the episode in retrospect for me, tremendously.

Some of Cheryl's early dialogue makes her sound a little condescending, unintentionally.

"I'm so thankful for advice from a girl I've never even met", while delivered kindly, really seems a bit snarky...

The way she introduces herself is amusing, too. "My friends call me Cheryl." So that's not your real name? Only your friends can use your first name? What did you mean?
