This was a good episode, although the sequel was better. Misty pulling Brock's ear was funny, especially May and Max's reactions! I was gald to see misty again, although I'm not a rabid fan like some(not pointing fingers).

Overall rating:
8.1 out of 10!!!
A good episode, one of the better, in fact. Good work Nintendo!!

I'm pretty upset because i'm gonna miss this, Togepi Mirage and Candid Camerupt because my parents are going for a small break and i have to stay at my nan's for 3 days from Tuesday morning to Thhhursday afternoon. The worst thing is that my nan don't have Sky but only Freeview.

Hopefully, when i go to my friends house tomorrow with another friend (Half Term), i can persuade him to tape it for me.

I liked this!

Miranda, Shedinja and Ninjask's voices were cool and Shedinja and Ninjask looked so cool!

I want Misty to come back permanently!!!

26th October 2004, 10:16 AM
Yep good filler, always a good idea to bring a character back, even if it is only for a few episodes. I can't stand Togepi, I'm sorry, but it's overated to hell, I think it's best they got rid of it.

Team Rocket were cool, though the Russian accent for the motto was crap(the motto's usually my favourite part). Hanson seems like a real villian, something that Pokémon in this department has SERIOUSLY lacked over the years.

Sorry Max, but Misty still remains the champ at ear-pulling, some brute strength in that :P

It's poised nicely for the next episode tomorrow, which I hear is supposed to be very good, so fingers crossed.

PS:Please bring back Gary (I demand his Japanese voice actor to return at once!), because there's yet again, far TOO much arse kissing between the characters, we need someone to shake it all up, it's all getting too cosy for them....

Very entertaining.Misty is SO funny.flipping Brock by the ear and not flinching was funny when Ash and Co. stared at her,gobsmacked.


One of the better episodes.

26th October 2004, 12:26 PM
Ah, another favourite of mine.

Voices: Some of the best so far! The russian accent was good and the princess's voice was very similar to Misty's.

Pokemon: I've been waiting to see Shedinja for ages! It's Solarbeam attack was awesome, and those Ninjask's really kept me on the edge of my seat! Shedinja's voice wasn't bad, it should have been more 'hollow'. Ninjask's was fine.

Characters: Lot's and Lot's of new ones! Great character personalities. Also, I agree with Sharpshooter, Hanson was the real villian of this episode. The return of Misty was great, and she was soooo funny when she pulled Brock's ear! May and Max's faces were priceless. And, that's probably were Max get's his ear-pulling from.

Content: I must say, one of the best storylines yet! The Mirage Kingdom was fantastic and it wasn't the normal storyline either.

10/10 for me!

Nice episode. Ninjask looked rather smoother than I would think though. Heh, and Team Rocket had the WORST disguises ever. Overall, nice episode. Glad all the Pokemon pronunciations were correct this time ^_^;;.

That episode was SWEET!!!!!!!!!

This episode was so cool, I'm so glad to see Misty again (it's been a l-o-n-g time!).
The Princess' Mother sounded a lot like May.

I loved the part when May, Max and Misty are in the garden and Shedinja comes after them and Misty sends out Corsola to use Spike Cannon but it doesn't effect Shedinja.

When Ash, Brock, Pikachu and Mudkip went down that hole that the Ninjask dug where did they go? And how did they get back up??

Shedinja's Solarbeam was so awesome! So was the Ninjask's Shadow Ball. If the Colonel has 2 Ninjask then how come he doesn't have 2 Shedinja??

26th October 2004, 3:24 PM
maybe because he only had 3 pokeballs and a shedinja can't be got without a spare Pokeball.

Great ep, lookin forward to part 2!

I liked this episode it was very good when I saw shedinjas solar beam i thaught it would would be weak but I was wrong.

26th October 2004, 6:43 PM
It was great! The next episode will be sad. One question: Did the woman with the princess have a london accent?

Aero The Dragon
26th October 2004, 8:19 PM
At first I thought that Shedinja was using Hyper Beam, that looked a pretty strong solar beam to me!
I liked this episode, mainly because I'm a Shedinja fan..

26th October 2004, 10:42 PM
I like Shedinja too. I also liked this episode because Misty made an appearance and Brock actually battled a real trainer.

This was good next to "A Togepi Mirage!". Misty is back, we meet Princess Sarah and Miranda, and it has a good plot. High 10!

8th December 2004, 3:06 AM
I say 10/10! I loved the part when Misty pulled Brock's ear good, old, classic Misty-style! :D She's the champ at pulling ears! This episode was very entertaining as well and it was great to see Misty again. :)

13th December 2004, 11:23 PM
it would be nice if Misty stayed. After all, she's my fav female character on the show. i would give this 7-9/10

yeah! i agree! but when max does it, it doesn't have the same impact. max isn't as good at ear pulling! great ep 9/10

5th May 2005, 1:49 AM
I knew she'd come back. They always come back. :D

30th August 2005, 11:40 PM
I remember waiting to see this episode, I stayed up reading the sypnosis and looking at the pics and stuff. Misty was awesome in this episode, and her new outfit is the best. Shedinja was cool too!!


26th September 2005, 6:52 PM
This was an awesome two-parter. It was interesting how Misty pulled Brock by the ear in both episodes and inspired Max to start doing the same thing. LOL :D It was also great to see Corsola again, but I desparately wish we could have had an appearance by Psyduck, whether he battled or not. :( Colonel Hanson was an interesting villain, and I liked Miranda and Sarah too. The whole two-parter had that kind of storybook feeling that I found pretty interesting.

8/10 for me.

30th October 2005, 5:52 PM
i liked this episode, it was a good suspence builder for the second half. had a good plot and overall id give it a 9/10

Misty is my favorite character. I was glad that she came back. Do you think General Hansen was tried to kill Misty and the other with the solar beam?

30th January 2007, 12:35 AM
Ohhh, original ear pulling =DD. My favorite part. The whole episode was alright, overall ;p

18th October 2007, 12:45 AM
I was very happy to see Misty return even if it was for only two episodes in season 8 and a few more in season 9.

11th January 2009, 7:37 AM
A very good episode. It was really cool to see Misty again. The Togepi festival was awesome.

28th January 2009, 11:42 AM
it has been a while since i saw misty in these episodes so it was surprising to see her again so it was a good episode.

11th March 2009, 3:22 AM
Oh i was so happy to saw Misty again ^_^
and Togepi<3

14th March 2009, 4:40 PM
I was glad to see Misty come back, though I didnt really expect it so soon. But that's good because Im all crazy for Misty. Too bad it was only 2 episodes, but hey, totally worth it for her to come back.

18th December 2009, 1:33 PM
I was happy to see Misty again...

And to bad that Togepi was hurt by the general. he was so evil.


24th December 2009, 2:58 AM
A whole lotta drama. I was so happy to see Misty again! But with May around, she felt sorta out of place :/

Interesting to see a two-part episode in Pokemon. I liked the general's team of Ninjask and Shedinja, very sinister. I thought his character was refreshing since Team Rocket are usually the bad guys.

Why couldn't this have been a Johto episode? ;_; 7/10

5th July 2010, 10:47 AM
Misty again in the show was cool.
Togepi was pretty poor. It was chosen as the one to be captured first.

22nd July 2010, 4:25 AM
It was really cool to see Misty again. My favorite bit definitely had to be the infamous pull on Brock's ear when he was flirting with the princess. Oh good times...


1st August 2010, 11:40 PM
This episode was OK. I like the fact that Misty returned but the whole Togepi Kingdom thing was a bit too fairy tale-ish for me.

I also thought the General guy looked ridiculous.

25th September 2010, 8:55 AM

You can't go wrong with an episode about Misty returning OR a plot that revolves around Togepi :).

27th February 2011, 1:43 PM
This episode was ok... It was really cool seeing Misty back! It was really cool seeing Ninjask and Shedinja for the 1st time. It was really cool to see Shedinja's ability displayed in battle. The Colonel was definitely a horrible man, hurting those Togepi like he did. Didn't really like the Castle set-up however.


26th June 2011, 12:50 PM
This episode was great. Great to see Misty back. Like previously said it was good to see her pull Brock's ear again. Glad to see Togepi get some action.

it was really cool seeing misty again, but her togepi annoys me no end...

30th January 2012, 12:23 AM
It was so great seeing Misty again!!! I love how she met May & Max Also Misty's interactions with May were good given circumstances in which they met with point of episodes which were great to me not being bonding betwen characters. They became good friends with May admiring her and her skills. In the original version when May first saw Misty she said " I've been wanting to meet you for so long!" and When Misty did her Brock ear pulling again May said "Kasumi's incredible" LOL.

25th February 2012, 12:40 PM
Seeing Misty again was awesome, she's one of my characters and it's horrible that she's been ditched just because May had to advertise Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire games. Togepi is so cute! Brock fell in love again, which is awesome! The idea of the Mirage Kingdom and worshipping Togepi was original and nice. 10/10.

29th February 2012, 3:10 AM
This episode was great. Great to see Misty back. Like previously said it was good to see her pull Brock's ear again. Glad to see Togepi get some action.

I know right?! This is why I loved this episode. Togepi is getting actual development.

What a great episode. Animation wise, it was one of Iwane's best.

I would like to have seen more of an examination of Misty's effect on the group. It bothered me that Misty referred to them as "Ash, you guys!", grouping Brock with them. I guess the five years of traveling together wasn't enough to garner Brock a mention...

Hanson was a breath of fresh air, and the TRio's terrible Russian accents made my day.

I found this just awful.
I suspected I wasn't going to like it as soon as I saw Kasumi's shadow. I knew for sure when the team was dragged into the random togepi kingdom =/

I would have said Kasumi's return wasn't so bad if it wasn't for the fact since this episode Masato started doing the 'pull Takeshi away' gag...

21st June 2012, 9:36 PM
^ Yeah, Max pulling Brock's ear away was pretty stupid.

I liked this episode though I think it would've been better if it were later in the Hoenn saga. The princess didn't strike me to be much older than Misty but I suppose that she is considering that Brock attempted to hit on her.

27th September 2012, 9:53 PM
I thought this was a great episode. Misty returning for this two-part was a stoke of genius and I loved the whole theme surrounding the Mirage Kingdom and Togepi. It was great to see a antagonist too what it even made it the more interesting. Definitely a very good mini-arc in the Advanced Series.

30th May 2014, 10:01 PM
The friendship between Kasumi and Togepy is surely as much as Satoshi and Pikachu in my opinion. I wonder that Togechick has become a Togekiss after this long time. One thing I dislike is that Haruka's inner strength is not strong enough as she nearly cried. More importantly that Togechick does not belong to her. Other than that this is awesome in general.

So the old OS band is re-united after all this time. :)
This episode took an odd turn what with sudden;y going to strange mirage kingdom. Not that I didn't like it because of that.

2nd December 2014, 6:43 AM
The whole Mirage Kingdom thing was ridiculous in my opinion, but TR's disguises made me cackle when they were on the blimp. Seeing Misty, May and Max in the maze area and Misty using Corsola to battle was cool, but I didn't care for the kingdom's royal family or Togepi disappearing and being found by them. I just wanted to see Misty kick arse.

12th May 2015, 5:05 AM
glad to see misty this episode

On this episode, it was good to see Misty there but I found it quite disappointing that she released Togetic (evolved from Togepi in the ep as I remember).

13th January 2016, 3:07 AM
Wow the Togepi kingdom looked cool like something from the Wizard of Oz. Misty's return here pleased me and I liked the new general villain even tho he was after a cutie like Togepi. ^^;

It's not as if Misty and Brock were ever that close anyway lol. At least she got along well with May. ;)

4th May 2016, 3:41 PM
Team Rocket's disguises and accent were very funny.I liked the Togepi kingdom.^^

3rd June 2016, 2:00 AM
Misty appearing was just fan service and why did it take this long for Togepi to become so important?? 7/10

It's not as if Misty and Brock were ever that close anyway lol. At least she got along well with May. ;)

Misty and Brock had that ear pulling gag in Johto however, so I did expect more interactions between them here, but I did like how she and May became friends fast at least. ^^

30th September 2016, 3:03 AM
OMG! Have I just died and gone to heaven? That is Misty! Seeing her walk towards them filled me with joy :)

Also, Togepi is a spike ball Pokemon? Wtf? I thought it was meant to represent a cracked egg shell.#

Wow, this is possibly the craziest episode I have ever seen.

It's funny to see Misty still so petrified of bugs. That Shedinja was strong!

This is a really interesting episode though, I like all of the regal characters!

I can't wait to see the secrets behind this in the next episode.
