Well, duh. Of course they stopped them, or else the series probably wouldn't have continued on with Team Rocket's antics and lack of success.

THis is also a much loved episode by me, mainly because of Lickitung, the awesome pink song, and the HAIPER BEAMERZ!

I loved this episode! It was so funny when Meowth said "Look! A pink Lickitung!!!" lol.
That rampaging Nidoking was scary!!
But we got to see Togepi use Metronome! I love it when it's lil hands go blue!!

I really liked this episode. ^^ It was pretty cool to see a different colored pokemon that wasn't a shiny. *sigh* I wish someone would have caught one of the pink pokemon though...XD I know they weren't suppose to but...it'd be cool to have one.

This is definitely one of the most bizarre episodes of the show, but it has the little highlights that definitely make it worth watching: Team Rocket's pokemon working together and defeating nidoking, the extremely bizarre Team Rocket fantasy, James getting excited over a pink Jigglypuff and a pink Lickitung, the flashback with Misty conking herself on the head. It adds up to an interesting episode. :)

They didn't stop them. The pink Nidoking did.

I didn't specify "They" so it can include the Nidoking. Tosser.

Best part of the episode had to be when Kenji sent out Pikabl- erm, Mariru to fight Nidoking, only for it to get scared and run off like a wuss. XD

Guess cuteness dosen't always prevail after all.

An interesting episode, nice to see an episode that focuses on Pokemon that are raised on an isolated island and have a interesting diet that makes Pokemon pink. Also this is the first episode where Berry trees are introduced which will be late used in Johto and Hoen. I got a laugh out of Misty trying to teach Togepi to use headbutt and Pinkachu.

A filler that is still remembered by me, so it has definitely stuck out to me. I watched this episode again last night after a gap of about 5-6 years, and I agree that it would've been interesting for one of the cast to catch a pink poké, but the best that they got was Pinkachu - a terrible joke, living up to Ash's reputation.

Ah Nidoking made this episode... It's rarely handled badly in the show, from what I can recall! Every time Gary used his was a pleasure, and it was in fine form in this ep too.

And of course any chance to see Lickitung is a welcome one...

They should have let that stupid Rhyhorn fall into the sea. How long has it lived on the island? Does it not realise the danger of a cliff?

those pink poke's were an odd sight if you ask me, i thought they allways had different colors.

I love all the pink Pokemon :D I was pretty sad when the Ryhorn was in trouble like that.

This episode made me think of the pink Butterfree, this might have been where it came from.

It was a little strange that only a little bit of Pikachu turned pink from eating the fruit, i would have thought its whole body would have changed.

This episode was one of my favorites of all because a new discovered thing for Pokemon is here. Whenever a Pokemon eats pink berries, their body changes pink, but if you relate that to the berries in the Pokemon World, they're different since they heal you. But it was funny that TR blasted off from a Nidoking and went after the twerps for no reason.

The rescue of Rhyhorn was similiar to the rescue of Hipopotas.

I think that theme park TR was imagining was based off of Disneyland.

I liked this episode because it's interesting seeing pokemon turing pink from eating berries. I also liked it because it showed Togepi using it's first moves.

A very unique episode I remember. I was suprised about Togepi's secret attack for the first time. And I don't find the pink pokemon weird somehow. But I did liked the Nidoking. However, Team Rocket's song in this episode wasn't really one of my faovrites, but it's still stuck in my minds.

I wonder if the native Pokemon stop eating the berries and leave the island, would they change to the normal Pokemon color?

I remember seeing this episode when I was younger, and my first reaction to seeing the pink Pokémon was that they were defective Dittos or something XD But then I found out that it was all the fruit they ate. Since then, I've always feared carrots turning me orange... lol. But a boring filler nonetheless, sadly.

Lol, pinkan island. Some pokemon look really bad as a pink pokemon...

I remember thinking that those Pink Pokemon were all Shinies when I first saw this episode haha. Now I know better though. It was a funny filler, well not filler if you count Togepi's Metronome move that helped save everyone from that crazy Pink Nidoking and it's horn of death. I thought it was average, and Team Rocket's plan for the pink Pokemon was hilarious. 6/10.

This episode was ok. Those pink Pokemon were really cool. Too bad Ash wasn't allowed to catch any of them.

"That would make it a "Shyhorn"!"
"Then we'd have to call you Pink-achu!"
BA DUM PSH!

Now, that was a lot of pink Pokemon!

This was one of my favourite episodes of the Orange Islands. Even though I've never really liked the colour pink, I still enjoyed seeing all those pink Pokemon. I saw this before knowing what a shiny Pokemon was, so I think this was only the second time I saw alternately coloured Pokemon (the first time being the pink Butterfree in Bye Bye Butterfree). I also found it really interesting how the Pokemon were pink because of the fruit that they ate.

Having pink Pokémon was an interesting idea. I guess that this is where the pink Butterfree came from. Watching Tracey sketching was pretty boring and Togepi using Metronome is terrible. Officer Jenny was all kinds of cool since she was able to take down Nidoking.

This has to be one of my favourite episodes from the Orange League. Absolutely loved the idea of Pink Pokémon, after all they do say you are what you eat. It was nice to see Togepi finally doing something except for being cute. I think one of the three should have just caught one of those Pink Pokémon.

Love this episode! it's one of my favorites in the OI. when Pikachu was pink, Ash thought it was gonna stay pink forever, I lol'd. Officer Jenny was so badass since she was able to take down Nidoking.

Great episode! Pikachu being partly pink was really funny! This is, just like the crystal Onix and many differently colored Pokemon on the Orange Islands (Butterfree, Vileplume, Raticate), awesome! The Orange Islands have many awesome, special and rare Pokemon! Togepi was the hero! Team Rocket's idea was great as well! 10/10.

I just love how Ash got flown in the air. This episode was really interesting with both what happened with Team Rocket's part and Ash's part. Ash was also pretty lame with those jokes and even Misty noticed that haha.

*Shakes head* Oh Ash. How many times will you get the gang into trouble? It was a pretty decent episode. I would have liked if Officer Jenny could have calmed down Nidoking though.

It's nice seeing those Pink Pokémon in this episode, I guess rare Pokémon like Pink Nidoking, Crystal Onix, different coloured Vileplume (Valencia island) lives in Orange islands. It's interesting that the Pokémon in this episode turned Pink, because they eat the fruits of the Pinkan island. The Officer Jenny was so badass in this episode, it's awsome how she took down that Nidoking.

I wonder if this was where that Pink Butterfree in "Bye, Bye Butterfree" came from? Hm, probably not.
Cool to see so many pink Pokemon. :)

Lapras getting caught in a whirlpool and Ash and friends getting swept to Pinkan Island was an original way of starting this episode in my view. I cackled when Togepi teleported Ash and friends away from the charging Rhyhorn and it just fell off the cliff. Tracey's sketch of Officer Jenny in action also made me giggle; it was so strange of him.
