Predicted Titles:
Dance, Dance, Revolation!
Corphishy Business
Rotten to the Corphish

These are my guesses. I think the first one is the best.

Seems like a good eppy I want to see this one this kinda goes to show how much determination Corphish has to get stronger and doesn't need to evolve to prove itself. Good thing this episode isn't too far away though.

hmm. i wonder who won the battle at the end with ludicolo vs torkoal.

too bad we never get to know the results. (as well as the grovyle vs exploud battle)

A great episode for Corphish! I've always liked the little guy so it's great to see him try and prove himself. We haven't seen any jealousy between Pokemon since Chikorita & Pikachu so it's good to see Corphish get jealous in Grovyle. I like how Corphish tries to prove himself without resorting to evolution.

Dub Title time!: Livin' La Vida Ludicolo!

I really like that title but you know 4Kids...it will be the weirdest sounding title ever....
I really liked the guessed title for "Takin' The Lombre Home" which was "All's Well That Ends In A Well". They should come on here and look at some of the great titles!

I felt sorry for Corphish kinda in this episode. It was a good debut for Ludicolo though ^_^

Hmm... it's a bit disappointing when a pokemon evolves and we've already seen the new form. If Grovyle, Swellow, Combusken, Beautifly and Ludicolo had not already appeared, it would have been better.

frednmethod
27th January 2005, 3:36 PM
Yeah.

But I've heard somewhere that the reasonings behind the pre-appearances was to know how much the fans appreciated those pokemon. For example, there might be some pokemon that fans wouldn't want evolved, because it looks too ugly or something.

NO!NO!NO!NO! They gave this ep a sh*t dub title it is! Wait be prepared!

Go, Go, Ludicolo! I put it in spoilers to build up supense! But screamed when I heard this!

Ludicolo's voice wasn't very good, but the rest of the episode wasn't bad. The battles were good. I wish they'd stop ending episodes mid-battle, though...

Gah! My post was deleted ;.;.........
I thought this was an excellent episode. Corphish got some spotlight, which is ALWAYS welcome with me. Jealousity is a rarity on Pokémon, so that's great to see it.
Pancho......Dear goodness, that name is OU. Call the guy André, or Antonio, or something. We've had a Pancho already, anyway! The Diglett Rancher, I believe it was. Other than that, I really have no complaints with this episode(I've learned to just accept the fact that we're not supposed to see battles >.>).

Overall rating:
9.3 out of 10!
Excellent filler! It didn't look interesting at fisrt glance, but meh, shows what I know!

Oh, my post was deleted, too. No wonder why I thought I already made a review on this episode...

Well anyway, all I basically said was that Ludicolo's voice could have been more creative.

And some other stuff...

7/10.

I actually liked this episode! Pancho and Ludicolo were cool (don't ask me why) Ludicolo's voice was kind of disturbing though.

Disturbing on a scale of one to ten? ten being very disturbing :)

The gist of my deleted post: Ludicolo's voice blows, Pancho sounds like Cheech Marin (but I like that), not enough original Japanese music kept, Corphish isn't as funny in the dub, animation seemed a little off, overall average episode.

Heracross
12th March 2005, 3:20 AM
Well, Ludicolo's dub voice sounds exactly like Butch. You can be the judge of how disturbing that is. >_>

This episode was pretty useless. The only good thing was that we got to see Heigani and Kootasu in battle, which is good because they tend to be neglected a lot recently. It also had some funny parts in it, like Heigani wanting a re-match from Poncho. I just love Heigani, he's great.XD

And when I first saw Nyasu's boss sequence it looked like Runpapa was giving Sakaki a headache.XD

Hales
12th March 2005, 3:27 AM
No not Butch - I hate his voice its very grating :(, and ten doesn't sound very promising!

Always wanted to ask, how cute is Corphish when he's jealous? :)

I watched this episode this morning (having missed it yesterday...) and I really really like it, it is so funny and I really like Ludicolo.
I realised that Ludicolo sounds like Butch and Wartortle, I always thought it's dub voice would be kinda like it's Japanese voice (higher and more jolly).
I liked the storyline and there was quite a lot of comedy in here.

Overall 8.3/10

Hmm, somehow I always thought Ludicolo's voice would be higher than that. High and upbeat. Ah well. Anyways, overall, this was an alright episode. I didn't like how the group were treating Corphish at first, but I didn't like the way Corphish handled itself either, so... XD. But apart from that, Focus Punch, Hyper Beam, Protect, Double Team. My only question is where was Bullet Seed or Hydro Pump (Or at least Water Gun), tehy would've been good to see.

Ludicolo does definatly sound like Butch!

but a good ep anyway
Pancho was the perfect trainer for a Ludicolo

Well I liked this ep. Ludicolo voice was deeper than I thought. I felt sorry for Corphish it was so left out. The first battle was good and Poncho had a very good stratigy he won a very good fight. But on a VERY good note this ep was a VERY Torkoal pro ep.

Torkoal had a very good battle at the end it did way better than Corphish. It had its part with the crying TWICE. Yay a Torkoal friendly ep.

9.5/10 An almost perfect ep but I didn't see the end of Torkoal's fight because they ended the ep when Torkoal was fighting. ;324;

I liked Go, Go, Ludicolo quite a bit. The battle between Corphish and Ludicolo had great animation, and the whole episode was full of life. Poncho was cool too.

9/10

I don't like that Pancho beat the twerps and got their sandwiches, but I am glad that he ended up feeling guilty later. Despite that, I did like him as a guest star. I don't know if it was his voice or his overall personality, but he and ludicolo made me smile. I definitely can't wait for Lombre to evolve. Corphish was a real treat in this episode too, with its jealousy of Grovyle and its determination to battle again. :) I love Corphish, he's my favorite of Ash's Hoenn pokemon. He just has such a funny personality, whether he's happy or angry.

I just watched it again, listening more since I'm a Grovyle fan now! WHOO! There were so many coolio compliments about Grovyle, including Torkoal crying around him xD He was so awesomeness yo! "Grovyle is the best Pokemon ever!" quote of May, SO TRUE! xD this was awesome cause Team Rocket was impressed with him(until they saw Ludicolo that is.....) I also liked it when Corphish went and chased Pancho and Ludicolo down xD getting angry and stuff. Then Corphish's heroic moment when he saved Pancho and Ludicolo!

22nd June 2006, 4:05 AM
I thought this was a great ep. I loved Corphishs jealosly especially in the beginning when he was giving Grovyle the "stink eye." I felt kinda bad for corphish when it ran off and it was so mad. I also feel bad for him and torkoal too cuz they had to fight Ludicolo. It must have been annoying hearing him saying his name especially when it used doubleteam. I no it would have annoyed me beng surrounded by 14 big,green,dancing,pokemon going "Ludicolo! Ludicolo!"

That is EXACTLY what I was thinking. lol.
So-so epi. I was hoping Lombre would evolve just so I would see an evolution lol. I don't think he does for a while no idea though. Grovyle is such a pimp lol.

I think Brock's Lombre is a special case as it knows Water gun. This was an okay episode, although I didn't like the unlimited protect attack.

Pancho reminds me of Pedro the South of the Border guy.

South of the Border is a tacky Mexican-themed tourist trap just south of the NC/SC state line in Dillon, SC. I went there once. Half the rides were down, the motel looks like a time warp to 1972, and the 12 or so stores all sell the same overpriced souvenirs. They have huge billboards every 2 miles or so all up and down Interstate 95 in North and South Carolina, most featuring pictures of Mexican mascot Pedro and some corny pun..

The battle between Ludicolo and Corphish was enjoyable, but there wasn't much going on in this one.

This episode was ok... It was cool seeing Ludicolo for the 1st time. It was interesting to see that Corphish was getting jealous of Grovyle. It was cool to see Corphish trying to prove itself. It was cool to see an episode centering around Corphish. Ludicolo is very strong with good attacks. It was cool to see Torkoal battle Ludicolo, even though the end is unknown... Corphish vs Ludicolo was also cool to see.

20/100

I enjoyed the scene where Team Rocket stole Torkoal, Corphish, Tailow, and Pikachu, especially since we don't have any of those scenes in BW. It's kind of nostalgic. :)

Vernikova
8th July 2012, 2:16 AM
Yeah, Pancho. Pretty cool guy right there. I didn't really care for Corphish's jealousy to Grovyle's new found popularity within the group. I sort of enjoyed the beating Corphish received at the hands of Ludicolo.

29th September 2012, 6:47 PM
Hmm, I think this episode had some things that were enjoyable to watch, but it wasn't anything interesting that could be called exceptional. I did like the Mexican stereotype in a way and seeing Corphish and Grovyle in this episode - those two are hilarious together.

I wasn't a fan of Poncho since they him a Ludicolo of all things. Seeing Ash's Corphish struggle and eventually lose to Ludicolo made me cackle and I also liked that we got an explanation of how Lombre evolves into a Ludicolo. I screamed when Ludicolo and Poncho acted so casually about being trapped by TR and I liked seeing Torkoal vs. Ludicolo at the end.
