Gah, another interesting ep with an uber-hot guy. XD

Wasn't this the first appearance of Venonat? I can't remember if Tracey had used it before or not. >>

I'm taking glassblowing lessons just because of Mateo. <3 So...that's how much I liked this ep. ^^;

First appearance of his Marill, Venonat was used in Tracey's first appearance when they saved the lapras.

Oh. Eheheh....I'm getting Pokemon mixed up, now, yay me. XD

*back ontopic* And..Mateo's little sister scared the crap out of me. O_o

I remember this episode so well, I love it! I was so like mega shocked seeing Marill I was like "What's that?!?!?!". I was funny when Venonat thought that the pile of rocks was the Onix.

Woohoo Feather Trainer! Hello Winona, I'll battle you! (I'm catching up to Ash!)

Yes, I remember that part now. I still think Mateo should have actually CAUGHT the Crystal Onix. >> That would have -OWNED.-

I think Mateo did the right thing by not capturing the crystal onix. Don't you think? Oh, his little sister Marissa is so cute with her hair like that! :D

Venonat first appeared in the Koga Battle episode. Of course, if you mean TRACEY'S Venonat, then yes, he first appeared in The Lost Lapras. ^_^

I'm surpriced that no-one has metioned the "Crystal Onix is a early form of a Steelix" theory yet. This being based on the fact that the Crystal Onix isn't effected by water attacks, yet is weak against Fire.

My favorite parts were:

1) Mateo using Cloyster, one of my favorite Pokemon. Although Cloyster lost, I loved that one facial expression, lol (This is the one, below)

2)James' fantasy about turning the Crystal Onix into a bathtub... I thought that was so cute!

Quote from James: "A crystal tub! Eeeee!"

That Cloyster is adorable. <3

Mateo is more adorable, tho. *shot*

Anyone got more pics from this ep? I tried in the pic thread but that was a no-go. >___> Like 4 times.

i love the episode with the crystal onix! it was brilliant! it is such a shame the crystal onix can't reproduce with a normal onix! ; 142;

I always though crystal Onix was Onix with a Metal Coat. Wild Steelix have to come from somewhere.

I liked this episode. Marill is one of my favorite pokemon, and I'm glad Tracey owned one and we got to see it on a regular basis. :) Venonat was great in this episode too. I liked when Tracey told it to find something that looked like an onix, and it found a pile of rocks in an onix shape. LOL :D I do think he was a little hard on venonat, though.

The crystal onix bit was pretty good. It was interesting to see a pokemon that's a little different from the norm, even if people can't figure out how the onix came to be that way. The little glass pikachu was cute too. :D

Phantom_Bugsy
30th August 2005, 12:06 AM
He was hard on Venonat 'cause he wanted to impress Mateo. <3

I need to see this ep again or I'll suffocate x___X Mateo was just....omghot. I'd do him.

cool onix and the episode was fun to watch. i think brock shouldve caught the onix, that wouldve made it much more interesting

I'm not the only one who recognized that. I think this episode was meant to be a small preview of 2 possible g/s/c such as marill and as mentioned above Steelix. I'd give this episode 9.987995/10(In other words a 10).

Well on a pure type basis, Steelix is weak against water based on his ground aspect so how can he not be affected ;-). As cool as the idea of a purely Crystal Onix is, the monster Onix that Bruno fights is still the King.

Maybe that Onix had a metal coat on it.

How did TR get out of the traps they fell into?

This was one of my favourite eps ever. It didnt have a metal coat on... it was just made of crystal
Crystal and Steel is not the same element.
This ep 6.9/10

The Crystal Onix was kool and Marills first epi iirc. TR escaping from thier traps made me try to work out how they did it. Awesome epi 9/10

Heh, pretty good for an OI ep and Mateo and Marisa weren't bad, I actually liked them. But damn it, Mateo should've CAUGHT the Crystal Onix. That would've so made this episode the best.

I think mewoth cut himself down from the tree who would have freeded jessie(or she could have used arbok the smash the bars) arbok would hav dug under ames and pushed him out of the hole. thats my theory

crystal and steel are similar so it annoys me the water effects steel pokemon

I think Ash should have caught the Crystal Onix and than gave it to Brock. that whould have been cool I think, Brock getting a crystal Onix to train..

Good episode, but it would have been cool if that was the shiny version.

I hope they added on the game some Crystal Onix. It's a shame they did'nt catch it.

I kind of liked this Episode. It was interesting when they used that effect in which everyone went through each others' eyes.

I also liked the Charmeleon Appearance.

A very good episode I love that Crystal Onix to bad they never put it in the game or gave it away at events i'd love to own one and I love how the Onix just glowed when exposed to Charmelon's flames very pretty. Interesting that they never mentioned how the Onix became crystallized, I assume that it is extremely old, and perhaps some time in it's past it was near a volcano and it's body gradually cooled well under extreme pressure and it became crystallized and thus resistant to water but not fire.

and great to see Cloyster, Marill looking very cool, and especially Charmeleon.

I saw this EP. Wasn't too good, but the fact of there being a Crystal Onix is pretty cool. I would love t obe able to catch one in the games. Sorta reminds me of the Red Gyarados..

Quite liked the episode. The Crystal Onix was magnificent. It would be good if that was the shiny form of Onix in-game.

15th April 2008, 11:54 AM
This still remains to be one of my favourite episodes from the whole of the the Pokémon series, yet, to this day, I cannot for the life of me work out why. Is it because the Crystal Onix itself is super cool? Maybe. Is it for that scene where the Onix is surrounded in the fire. Psychadelic. Or is it because of Marill? It's probably a combination of the lot.

when i first heard of that crystal onix i became very interested, it has a great storyline if you ask me.

Not the best episode.

I was a little disappointed that no-one caught it, but i can understand why they didn't.

This episode was very interesting because a Crystal Onix makes an appearence here. Very different than the other normal Onix known in the Pokemon World since Water don't affect the Crystal Onix here. Very unusual that the searcher looking for it the whole time didn't capture it. What a shame.

One of the few episodes where Cloyster and Charmeleon have decent screen time :)

Why Ash didn't fight against that Onix?

Slowking[George]
6th May 2009, 5:52 PM
Because he knew that the sculpter (forgot his name) was the one involved with it, it just wouln't be right if he tried to catch it or even battle it. That's why he didn't intervene when the sculpter was using his Charmeleon.

I totally loved the premise of a crystal Onix episode. I totally wish we could've had that in the games... and that Mateo guy was pretty awesome ^^ He made such a cute little glass Pikachu figurine at the end. Sadly, it was still a pretty forgettable episode to me.

I really liked this episode. It was the first time we saw a Mariil (which became my favorite Pokemon of the time). And the Crystal Onix was really cool. Pretty much an early version of Steelix (I wouldn't be surprised if thats where they got the idea for Steelix from).

Rarely do we get such interesting Pokemon like an Onix made out of crystal-like minerals. I loved this episode since the character of the day was actually interesting. I mean, how can you not like a glassmaker and his Charmeleon who are on a quest to find the one thing that can inspire them? I just really liked the story and the characters. I also loved Tracey's Marill's debut. It's one of the best 2nd Gen Pokemon. 9/10.

This episode was ok. That crystal Onix was really cool. Too bad Ash wasn't really able to get a chance to catch it. Seeing Tracy's Marill was really cool.

I loved it. A glassmaker and his Charmeleon on a guest to find the one thing that can inspire them; a special Onix.

Loved Tracey's Marill's debut. It's one of the best 2nd Gen Pokemon, 9/10

I love that you said exactly what I wanted to say! The little sculpture that Ash received at the end was also a nice catch. Awesome seeing a crystal Onix. They should've made the shiny Onix in the game this color.

9/10

Just one question about this episode.
First, let me say that it's been a looooong time since I've seen many episodes from before the Orange Islands arc.

My question is:

Was this Marills very first anime appearance?
I kind of have a feeling it might not have been.

Edit: Disregard my question. Just read the posts, and it seems this was Marills first anime appearance.

Well, it was its first appearance on TV. A Marill was shown in the first movie, though, in the Pikachu short.


I really liked how Tracey had a Marill - I thought it was so cute! ^^
The whole crystal Onix thing was very interesting. I thought it was so cool that an Onix could be made of crystals. It looked really pretty and I was really impressed by the fact that it could swim in the water and not get hurt by it or anything.

I agree.

It was cool at the end, when Ash got like a small crystal Pikachu model.
It makes me wonder if there are more crystal pokemon out there

It was a nice twist in the anime. It would also be nice to see them adding these unusual variations of Pokemon to the games. =D

Vernikova
25th October 2011, 1:44 AM
The crystal Onix was certainly an interesting thing to see. Now we need a diamond Steelix. I didn't really see the point in battling the Onix but I guess they couldn't go an episode without a battle. The characters of the day weren't memorable at all though.

Calamity™
19th January 2012, 8:17 PM
This was an interesting episode. It was nice to see something so different, but it does make you think that there could be many variations of Pokémon in the Pokémon world. So it would be nice to see more of these unusual Pokémon.

I totally agree with you! The crystal Onix was a special and nice idea, I'd like to see more of those kind of unusual Pokemon!

I have this episode on DVD and I like it, this is a cool and rewatchable episode, 9/10.

The crystal Onix was awesome and boy did I enjoyed just the whole synopsis of this episode. For a filler, this was very strong and nice to watch. So far, the Orange Islands are very enjoyable because it's totally different than its predecessor.

It was amazing seeing an Onix made out of crystal. But, I wonder how it got like that? Well, there's always a mystery in the Pokemon World. And Jessie and James looked like the Ginyu Force while they were saying their names. xD

14th July 2013, 2:19 AM
It's nice to see a Onix made out of Crystal/Steel, I think this Onix is the early version of Steelix. Also, Tracy's Marill debuted in this episode. which, in my opinion, is good because it debuted before the 2nd gen games came out. Overall, this was an interesting episode.

My theory is the Crystal Onix was a Delta Species.

17th February 2014, 2:17 AM
I loved that episode with the Crystal Onix and was bummed when after that trainer with the Magmar didn't catch that Ash didn't decide to catch it. (what about you guys?) Also I feel that the Crystal Onix is an awesome pokemon and would have been nice to see even Brock use it or Ash. Lastly I have given the Crystal Onix a nickname that I believe is really cool and fits so perfectly that when you read for the first time on the web right here from me that you will start to refer to it by the nickname for even. Ready? Well here is the nickname I came up with for the Crystal Onix after I first saw that episode by the same name is Crystalix and remember I coined the name and that it is entirely something that I made up so if anybody ttys to claim that they came up with that name call them out on it and set up a link to this page where it indeed did appear on the web for the first time and was coin by me.

So now let the discussion begin!

Even after my second viewing of this episode, it still is neat to see an Onix made out of crystal.
Also neat to see Marills first appearance before it's generating is even out.
