# 6 had the best Magneton voice I've heard. In "All Torkoal, No Play" its voice was less computerized. I forgot what it sounded like in "Sparks Fly For Magnemite" Did we hear the voices of the Magneton piling on Team Rocket's Gyarados submarine?

Magneton didn't talk in Sparks fly for Magnemite.

Interesting nitpick. At one point, Pikachu sounded like two Pikachus.

The funniest parts of the episode had to be the parts when Ash and Misty, and later Team Rocket (during the static electricity part), had no noses. I don't know why they didn't, but that was really funny. :D This wasn't the most exciting or interesting episode, but I loved the scenic views, and I think it was interesting how the most uncooperative magnemite ended up being the one who evolved.

I have to agree with this Magneton having the best voice of all Magneton. Then it got worse like Hypno's. (Well, that's my opinion.)

Concerning about Sparks Fly for Magnemite, I only heard clanging. It's been a while since I saw that episode though.

I like the desert scenary of this episode. It reminds of the early west with Ethan having a southern accent and dressing like a cowboy.

Am I the only one who thought it was funny when Jessie hits a Magnemite with her Pokeball to release Arbok? :)

this was a good episode to watch. it was better than a lot of other episode fillers in the orange islands. 8.5/10

15th July 2006, 9:36 AM
an awesome fillar. Liked this epi and we need more of these now a days. 7/10

5th August 2006, 2:09 AM
Before I saw this episode, I heard a rumor that Ash was going to capture #6, and that got me excited to see the episode. Although he didn't capture it, this was still an entertaining episode. Seeing Magneton again was cool, and it was nice seeing a Jolteon in a key role in an episode. (the previous time it was seen was in The Battling Eevee Brothers)

Was I the only one that thought this episode and The Mandarin Island Miss Match were trying to foreshadow Ash using his Tauros in the battle against Drake? (Both episodes featured a Tauros in them)

The filler ep was kinda lame in more ways than one

21st December 2006, 9:01 PM
Kind of a boring filler episode if you ask me, but okay enough

29th August 2007, 8:02 PM
A nice filler I always enjoy seeing Pokemon used for stuff other than battling.

7th April 2008, 11:17 PM
So, that was the episode where the Magnemite #6 evolved on a battle against Team Rocket. I forgot the episode title at first, but I got the hang of it now. And that's where Jolteon has an appearance.

5th July 2008, 3:37 PM
it's a decent episode but i've seen better. 6'5/10

7th January 2009, 7:07 AM
Nice filler. I didn't get much of it but it was pretty cool nonetheless. It's cool seeing Jolteon in the anime.

9th March 2009, 10:15 PM
Its a cute episode (lol)
no but i think Magnemite is really cute ya know...
i love all the magnemites

11th March 2009, 11:58 AM
I liked the orange island a lot but this episode is one of it weakness.

Was there any point to this episode?

I liked the Orange Islands but this didn't seem to fit in at all.

Our favorite Magnemite evolves into Magneton.

I think this episode was kinda okay.

31st August 2009, 6:49 AM
I really liked Jolten's entrance! That was so cool! But dang, this episode was so boring! Nothing but wandering around in a wagon and zapping Magnemites with electricity. BO-RING.

27th November 2009, 3:47 AM
The setting of this episode was sort of weird to be honest. A desert, really? I mean, it would have fit it better in the Kanto saga but not in a saga about tropical islands. Anyway, I think it was too Filler-ish, not much entertainment and nothing big really happening. The COTD's little Magnemite evolved into Magneton, but that was the only exciting part. At least Ash, Misty, and Tracey got closer to their destination. 3/10.

5th December 2009, 9:48 AM
Ash was great, how he take care Magnamite and Magneton.
And i loved to see Jolteon.

Well I was surprised too, since he doesn't have experience taking care of android-like Pokemon. They're hard to understand.

Why did you like Jolteon? I liked it because it was like the Pokemon version of a sheepdog, rounding up the Magnemite and such.

16th January 2010, 2:58 PM
I remember watching this episode perfectly! I grew up on a farm, so this episode really spoke to me. It was interesting to see pikachu use thunder wave and really help out Ash. That one dumb magnemite was funny!

From my upcoming "Pokemon: The Original Series" Episode Guide":

EP103: Get Along, Little Pokemon!
American Air Date: April 29th, 2000
Important Events: none


On their way to Trovita Island, our heroes are trekking through the barren wasteland on Mandarin Island. Suddenly, a storm looms overhead and the heroes run for cover. They find shelter under a cliff and watch in awe as group of Magnemite absorb the lightning of the storm. A man rolls up in a wagon, pulled by two Tauros, and offers them safety in the wagon.

After the storm, the man reveals his name to be Ethan. Clothed in full cowboy gear, Ethan tells the gang that he is a Magnemite rancher, collecting electricity from the storms with his Magnemite and bringing the power from town to town. He uses his Jolteon to herd the Magnemite up like sheep, using its electricity to attract and gather them together. With too many Magnemite to name, Ethan calls them by numbers. There is one Magnemite, Number 6, which continuously strays away from the group. The Magnemite seem to love the electricity as well as other Electric-type Pokemon, including Pikachu.

A little later, Ethan receives a phone call from Officer Jenny, who informs him that their town is out of power. They must get the electricity over there to power the town as soon as possible. But, as always, Team Rocket shows up using a giant magnet to try to steal all the Magnemite. After a bit of a scuffle and Team Rocket being blasted off (don’t worry, they’ll be back), Ethan and his Jolteon are seriously injured. Due to Ethan’s injuries, Ash courageously volunteers to take his place and bring the power to the town. He rides on one of the Tauros and takes nine of the Magnemite (and, of course, Pikachu) with him.

On their way to town, all of the Magnemite begin to stray away from Ash. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt to attract and bring all the Magnemite back together again…Except for Number 6, who has wondered off. After tracking it down, Ash keeps a tight grip on Number 6 as Team Rocket shows up again, with another magnetic mechanism, as they manage to swipe all the Magnemite (except for Number 6). Pikachu, though still pretty worn out from gathering the Magnemite before, manages to put up an equal fight against Rocket trio as they fire electricity at one another. Number 6, watching Pikachu struggle, decides to save the day and enters the crossfire of electricity. With this great surge of power, Number 6 rescues his fellow Magnemite and in the process evolves into a Magneton. After the other Magnemite charge Pikachu back up, all of the Electric Pokemon attack at once and send Team Rocket blasting off for the second time in the same episode. Ash then continues on and reaches the town, restoring their power.

Misty, Tracey, and Ethan arrive at town the next day and see that the town has gotten its electricity back. They meet up with Ash as Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy thank him for saving the day. Ethan, taking a liking to that so-called “tough little hombre”, offers Ash to join up and work with him. Ash thanks him for the offer, but obviously declines, saying that he has to compete in the Orange League, and that maybe someday he will learn as much about Pokemon as Ethan does. The episode then draws to a close as Ash and friends wave goodbye to Jenny, Joy, and Ethan and walk on to the next town.

My Thoughts

This was an above-average filler episode by the show’s standards. Solid animation, solid voice-acting, and a likeable character-of-the-day all come to together to form a good episode. There were also four (Magnemite, Jolteon, Tauros, and Magneton) featured Pokemon, which is way more than we usually get. If fillers were to be more like this, there would be less Pokemon to feature per episode and therefore less episodes to fill up, making more room for the action and story progression. I’m all for filler, but sometimes the writers overdo it (we’ll really begin to see it in Johto). I also like how this episode and the next two truly lead into one another, instead of the usual Lapras is surfing along and spots a random island. The characters all reference or point out the next destination, and the writers allow the viewers to see the setting of the next episode. This is one of the few times that the show actually does this.

Also, imagine if Ash had accepted Ethan’s offer at the end of the episode? As stupid as that would be, imagine if the writers just completely blew our minds with that. Ash ditches his dream of becoming a Pokemon Master and instead becomes a Magnemite rancher. Just a random thought.

It was not one of the 'best' episodes (in my opinion)

But i think it was a great episode xD

8th February 2011, 3:58 AM
This episode was ok. I liked how they showed how Magnemite evolved, it was a very creative and unique way. Jolteon was also really cool, pretty much my fav. electric Pokemon thus far.

Did they misspell the title grammatically?

It said "Get Along Little, Pokemon!"

Shouldn't it have been "Get Along, Little Pokemon!"?

12th November 2011, 2:34 PM
Meh, an episode featuring Ash saving the day. Nothing to see here. It was cool to see Jolteon but Magnemite might be the most boring Pokémon in existance.

1st February 2012, 3:37 PM
Nice to see a Jolteon again, but overall this was a pretty boring filler, in my opinion. I liked Magnemite's voice!

4th February 2012, 2:30 AM
This episode was okay I guess. I liked Ash's determination to save the town and the cute Pokeshipping scene in the beginning.

8th February 2012, 7:31 PM
It's long ago since I saw this episode for the last time, but I remember it. And I remember that I really like it. It's a good filler. 7/10.

2nd May 2012, 9:40 AM
This was an okay episode. There were some funny parts, like when Pikachu was stuck in a whole pile of Magnemite. I also thought that the Jolteon was pretty cool with how it was herding the Magnemite like sheep. But other than that, I thought it was kind of a dull episode, plus I had totally forgot about it. :/

7th September 2012, 9:31 AM
This episode was a mediocre filler in my opinion. A good point was the screening of Jolteon, Magnemite and Magnetron. Those Pokémons rarely appear in episodes and that made this cool. Even though this was mediocre, I did enjoyed the episode for the most part.

Ahhh a Jolteon. It made this episode a whole lot better to me. Ash seemed quite good at controlling the Magnemite and it was cool to see Number 6 evolve into a cooky Mangeton.

14th July 2013, 10:25 AM
This was an okay episode, I liked it when Misty fell on the ground and Ash helped her in the beginning. Nice to see a Jolteon herding the crowd of Magnamite, who were absorving the lightning. Ethan was an interesting COTD.
I liked Ash's determination to save the town, he was quite good at controling those Magnamite. Pikachu also helped him by using Thunderbolt.
I'm glad that Number 6 evolved into a Magnaton.

It was neat to see a Jolteon in the anime again. You don't see those everyday (in the show).

6th May 2015, 6:07 AM
It was a good filler. Seeing Jolteon was nice as always and Magnemite's VA was excellent. Seeing 6 evolve was awesome as well.

This episode kind of felt like a Western film which I liked especially cuz of the desert setting and all ha ha. Seeing Ash work so hard to corral the Magnemite was fun and I liked how Magnemite number 6 evolved and saved the day.

26th March 2016, 10:57 PM
With so much focus on Electric-types, I wish we would've seen Ash's Pikachu have a bigger role.

Well Pikachu lured the Magnemites using his electricity at least. I thought it was funny how he got swarmed by them near the beginning. :3

27th May 2016, 12:49 AM
Magnemite evolving into Magneton was such a good scene and I liked how Ash was put in charge of delivering electricity to the town. 8/10

5th September 2016, 12:06 AM
I liked the desert environment and how Electric Pokemon were the main stars here. My favorite scenes were when Ash was on his journey.

17th October 2016, 6:12 AM
I think this episode was too filler-ish with not much entertainment and nothing big really happening, but I loved the scene where the Magnemite #6 evolved in the battle against Team Rocket.

What I liked from this episode the most was the Wild West feel of the desert terrain. Ford and his Coil group's job of providing towns with electricity was a great concept, and I quite enjoyed Coil No. 6's evolution into Rarecoil. Satoshi being in charge of the convoy when Ford got injured was a huge responsibility.

Satoshi being in charge of the convoy when Ford got injured was a huge responsibility.

Which TR almost screwed up for him, as usual. I don't even fully understand why Ethan couldn't have just gone along with the convoy tbh.

I don't even fully understand why Ethan couldn't have just gone along with the convoy tbh.

Apparently, Ford traveling via the convey would have exacerbated his condition since he got injured when the Rocket-dan attacked the group that first time. To me personally though, it was just a plot device used to get Satoshi on his own when the Rocket-dan showed up a second time.
