That was a funny episode, especially when Ash had to wear an apple costume!

Oh yeh, when Snorlax was chasing it lol! This episode was cool. Snorlax's Hyper Beam looks so cool!
It' one of the worst situation to happen with a Snorlax....

Even though I can't stand the kid with weeds for brains in this episode, I really loved most of the episode. The best part has to be Ash in the apple costume running from Snorlax (it's definitely my vote for one of the funniest scenes ever). I also really enjoy Jigglypuff getting her moment in the spotlight, Meowth's robot getup, and Snorlax finally kicking some real butt. I also love Ash being the poster boy for "Don't let hunger happen to you" in the beginning. ;)

I don't really remember this Episode...but...wow...i think it should have been cool...

Anyone mind telling me...after what happend to Snorlax...

24th October 2004, 9:28 PM
what about the part when Ash was about to come to Snorlax for a hug and then gets the dotted-eye look WHEN SNORLAX RUNS PAST ASH? THAT WAS FUNNY

This eppy was great. First of all, the animation is great, that's always a treat. TR's mecha was cool. Like a lv.100 Meowth. Something I noticed though. Gulzar gave Ash and co. the bi-da(when you stick out your tongue and pull down an eyelid) but in the second Houenn episode it was cut. What's the dealio?

I thought that this episode was very funny. Particularly when Ash is wearing the apple costume and almost getting eaten by Snorlax. One thing I didn't like though was that one kid Golzar. He seemed too much of a brat.

this episode was extremely funny,but could'n Ash just go by himself and have Misty and Tracey watch Snorlax while he goes and get his pokeball fixed?Another thing is out of all the times Ash doesn't know which pokemon in in each pokeball!

funny episode and was very fun to watch! there were a little too many slorlax related episodes in the orange islands in my opinion...

why did ash ave to look up gloom with his pokedex if he met one before?
(episode 26, pokemon sent-sation)

He probably forgot its description.
Anyway this was a very funny episode and I enjoyed it, I love the part where they were trying to get snorlax over the mountain and Ash had to dress up like an apple with snorlax chasing it.

The episode was kinda lame for several reasons:
- The bratty kid who eventually turned out OK
- The people forcing Ash to give Pikachu simply for food
- Team Rocket's overconfidence

Snorlax's fighting skills were cool though.

This episode was really well done. Plot was a little boring but hey! 7.0/10

21st December 2006, 2:41 AM
Wow, very funny with Ash in an apple costume, he looked ridiculous

11th January 2007, 6:45 PM
A OK episode. But, couldn't Ash just use a different Pokeball to put Snorlax in? Anyway, it was alright.

15th January 2007, 11:19 PM
I don't think that would have worked. Each pokemon seems to have its own pokeball that it's assigned to, it would almost be like releasing Snorlax from his party and then recapturing him.

7th April 2008, 11:28 PM
Gulzar(the one with a Gloom) here looks like a brat. Ash's Pokedex said that Gloom has advantage of Water types while it has a disadvantage on Fire types. So that's why he's gonna choose Charizard. However the ball chooses Squirtle. And I also love the mecha-nized Meowth of Team Rocket battling Ash's Snorlax just nearby the Pokemon Center. Well, to finish it off, I love the part when Snorlax does a Hyper Beam at TR. This episode is very funny especially when Ash broke his Pokeball and Snorlax eating the flower patch on Gulzar's head!

An okay episode, I liked seeing Ash dress up as an apple in fact I think this is the first time he's put on a food related clothing to get a Pokemon to follow him. I'm surprised a Pokeball could break so easily considering they throw them around a lot when releasing Pokemon. Another good thing about this episode is TR going back to their roots and being evil, nice to see that it's better than them being comic relief.

This episode name no Stage Fight? My favourite Pokémon the Raichu and the Pokémon fans also so mean, but funny. :)

This is cool! n_n

he he, that apple costume chase was brilliant if you ask me, you don't see that on the streets:p

18th November 2008, 1:32 AM
Loved snorlax in this episode. It was pretty funny when they run at each other at the end and snorlax goes right for the food. I kind of forget what happens to snorlax in the future so i guess i gotta watch some more episodes.

20th November 2008, 10:02 PM
Ash in the apple costume, oh yes! By far the best part. At least the Pokéball got fixed in the end ^^

6th January 2009, 11:56 PM
Funny episode. Them trying to push Snorlax up the hill was priceless xD They should've just went to the Pokemon Center, fixed the ball, and came back though. Snorlax isn't going anywhere.

Ash as an apple, that was comical.

7th March 2009, 2:58 PM
Love this episode..Ash in a apple costume = priceless ^_^

12th December 2009, 9:39 AM
Funny episode, i loved how Snorlax was hungry.
And it was great to see it learning a new move, this time Hyper Beam.

12th December 2009, 6:54 PM
A good Filler. Anything with Snorlax is going to be good.

I loved how Ash and Co had to row Snorlax down the river because it's PokeBall broke. The scene with Ash dresses as an apple was funny too, I always knew he was "fruity". Rofl.

Snorlax learning Hyper Beam was so unexpected. This must be the first time any of Ash's Pokemon learns such a powerful attack. 9/10

I just re-watched this episode on Boomerang today. It was pretty cute episode with them trying to figure out how to get to the Pokémon Center to get the Poké Ball fixed. Team Rocket's robot wasn't that impressive in anyway, though it was better than a lot of the mecha, except for the last attack that involved some kind of body slam.

Didn't like this episode much. However, Snorlax beating TR was awesome, the Hyper Beam really showed how strong Snorlax could really be. It was very odd seeing the pokeball break and the gang had to carry Snorlax together to get it to the pokemon center.


19th April 2011, 9:50 PM
Gulzar and Ash getting eaten was funny!

2nd February 2012, 10:15 PM
This episode was HILARIOUS lol!!! when Ash was dressed as an apple Misty was dying trying to cover her mouth so she wouldn't laugh.

8th February 2012, 7:42 PM
A breaking Pokeball was an original idea. This was a nice and enjoyable episode, and Snorlax got some deserved screen time. In the end, everything turned out to be all right. 8/10.

13th February 2012, 5:12 PM
That was an okay episode. It was funny seeing Ash in the apple costume! I would have thought Ash could have used any old Pokéball to keep Snorlax in, but I guess a Pokémon only lives in the one it was caught in? But then there was that episode where the female Meowth gets a diamond Pokéball so who knows. Did Ash and co really not have any other Pokéballs?... (Thats called reading into it too much and being unnecessary.)

9th April 2012, 8:43 AM
I loved it when Snorlax ate the flowers off of Gulzar's head! I thought it was actually going to eat the kid at first it would've been awesome if that happened. The rest of the episode was good, too. I liked watching everything they had to go through just to get the Pokeball fixed, especially the part with Ash in the apple suit.

Overall, this was one of the most memorable Orange Islands episodes for me. I haven't actually watched it in 10+ years probably, but I still remember it quite well.

When Snorlax is in aa episode the main focus point, you know there is trouble and comic moments inbound. The character of the day was annoying, but thank you Snorlax for taking his flowers on his head. :D

Haha. Ash as an apple was too funny. And when Snorlax bit him and cried a little. I didn't like that the other Pokemon Trainers were actually considering in sacrificing Pikachu. I agree with Ash and that Golzack (spelling) kid.

18th September 2013, 8:46 AM
This episode was hilarious. It's really funny when Ash was dressed up as an Apple.
I laughed when Snorlax ate the flowers on Gulzar's head.

15th October 2014, 4:52 AM
It's not an everyday occurrence that you see a Pokeball actually break like that.
Ash dressed as an apple was hilarious! :)

16th November 2014, 5:30 AM
I screamed when Ash's Snorlax tried to eat Gulzar's Gloom and then ate Gulzar's flower hat. Seeing Ash, Tracey, and Pikachu pull Snorlax while Misty laid out wood as tracks was so clever and funny, and Meowth in his mecha was silly and outrageous. Snorlax running towards the cargo-dropped food at the end was comical as well.

Wow Snorlax wanting to eat Gulzar's flowers was funny but his Poke ball getting damaged was unfortunate. I especially liked how Ash dressed up as an apple to get Snorlax to chase him to the pokemon center. :D

Loved it. Ash dressing as an apple was really funny while being chased by Snorlax and Gulzar having his flower headband eaten was funny too. Kinda sad at first that Snorlax's Poké Ball broke but at least happy that it was repaired.

Snorlax's laziness issues were annoying to me although I guess I blame Ash the most for not training him much.

In Ash's defense, he didn't have much time to work with Snorlax. I still liked the shenanigans here however and especially how Snorlax learned Hyper Beam. ^^

30th May 2016, 12:59 AM
Snorlax learning Hyper Beam (with no training lol) was the best moment here. Oh and Ash in the apple costume was worth a chuckle too.

8th July 2016, 12:36 AM
Hyper Beam being used by Ash's Snorlax was my favorite scene all because it showed that even though he's lazy, he's also tough. :)
