Hmmm.... if the computer translation of the Pokeani duscussion of the episodes is accurate, two important things are of note in this episode, plotwise.

Pikachu has a new move: ボルテッカー Not sure what it is. It is borutekka or something like that. Volt Tackle maybe?
May got a Pokemon egg. Pokeani is saying it's an egg of an Eevee.

The ending credits also returned to Glory Days

ボルテッカー is Volt Tackle.
The loss of Pokemon Counting Song isn't surprising really.
As for Eevee, I refuse to comment until I see it.

It's surprising that pikachu gets a new move and probably won't end up being used against the next Frontier Brain (given that the comic semi-spoiled it for us).

Oh, that's nice....

Uh. Wait. Huh? Eevee? That's.... frightening....

And Glory Days again? That's a shame. Pokemon Momokowhatever was.... well, it had.... it was kind of.... Corphish danced in it, I know that much was good about it.

Of course, I'll wait for the Official Word, but thanks GD.

Volt Tackle? Kewl, I've always wanted to see Pikachu use that move. I'm glad that in finally learned it after about 2 years of small speculation about it.

An Eevee egg could mean either one of 3 things: May will get one of the known Eeveelutions, she will keep it as an Eevee or there will be a new Eeveelution in the 4th gen which it could evolve into.

Just a thought...

Gravy
3rd November 2005, 7:39 PM
Hooray for an electric powered Quick Attack? Bah, Volt Tackle will get real old, real fast. But good for them actually making an effort to implicate some of the more obscure attacks.

If Haruka does get an Eevee I'm gonna plotz. I despise that creature with a passion.

I wonder if Glory day is diffrent, y'know, since like Glalie, Torkoal, Ludicolo, Bulbasaur, Skitty, Chimecho, and Beautifly are gone. Plus Mudkip evolving and Phanphy with the group. Maybe they added in Torkoal and Glalie to the scene with the lab Pokemon!

Volt Tackle, cool. Guess this wasn't a filler. Hopefully, Evee won't evolve, a normal Eevee would be cool.

I'm just glad that May has got something different from the others for once.Wonder what other pokemon appeared in the episode

3rd November 2005, 10:02 PM
You guys are hard to please. This came completely out of the blue. It also could just be any brown egg and someone speculated it was eevee. I for one like Eevee, and it would probably stay in that form for a while. I'm not exactly sure I know how I feel about Volt Tackle though. But I do definitely give them credit for the surpises. I dont think this season is as bad as everyone's making it out to be. People should just try to have an open mind and remember all the things you were criticizing that wasn't in other episodes that is in this one.

Kakashi-Sharingan Warrior
3rd November 2005, 10:06 PM
so May 'might' have gotten an Eevee?

that would be cool, I've just gotta wait til the site I get episodes from updates with the ep *not mentioning name for rule reasons*

anyway, I will reveiw when I see it

Hopefully Pikachu will only use Volt Tackle as his secret weapon or something, otherwise it'll get old real fast. Bah it'll get old real fast i'm sure :/

CyberCubed
3rd November 2005, 11:01 PM
I think it's safe to say that Eevee has new evolutions in D/P, which is the only reason I could think of for her to get it.

Anyway hurray for this episode being non-filler!

And OH NOES for yet another baby Pokemon being introduced!

We're going to have eggs coming out of our ears pretty soon.

PDL
3rd November 2005, 11:06 PM
Eevee?! what the crap?!

Eevee is the worst choice for a new pokemon for May... seriously! As you can tell, I really dislike Eevee or it's evolutions, though Espeon and Umbreon don't bug me as much as the others, so I wouldn't mind if Eevee evolves into one of those two, or even if it stays an eevee permaeintly... mostly because it's gimmick is the reason why I dislike it.

Volt tackle... well, I should have seen it comming, but I'm fine with that...

Thriller
3rd November 2005, 11:23 PM
Of course people are going to b*tch about May getting an Eevee. Whenever she gets Pokemon similiar to Ash's people get mad. If its different, people get mad.

I won't believe it till I see it though.

Oh and of course this thing will evolve into a new Eeveelution. We all know May is always used to promote the 4th Gen.

Glory Days back? Huh. *Drools at the thought of spoilers*

The Big Al
4th November 2005, 12:00 AM
*pulls egg out of ear*
What more could they do with Eevee? It has five evolution possibilities.

Actually, I'm an Eevee fan because it can become so many different kinds of Pokemon depending on the trainer and Eevee's personality and the other Pokemon they have.

*Waits for an "OMG whatz May Going 2 Evolve her Eevee in2 LOLZ?!" thread to appear in polls*

Gravy
4th November 2005, 12:04 AM
I think it's safe to say that Eevee has new evolutions in D/P, which is the only reason I could think of for her to get it.
Or how about the fact that its just because its a painfully popular little f*ck and everyone loves it and its evolutions? ^o^

I hope it evolves into something (preferably the shafted Umbreon) and quick. Eevee is probably one of the most boring pokémon they could have chosen battle-wise.
THE DEADLY SAND ATTACK!

...if she gets one that is.

Sharpshooter
4th November 2005, 12:07 AM
Well the last time Eevee was involved on this sort of level on a regular basis was with Gary, so I guess that's quite good, although I'm assuming it stay an Eevee for quite sometime as the writers seem to be going with this barrage of "cute infant pokémon" for May at the moment.

It's surprising that pikachu gets a new move and probably won't end up being used against the next Frontier Brain (given that the comic semi-spoiled it for us). well actually remember the last hoenn opening pikachu used volt tackle. I don't see a big problem with eevee the only thing that annoys me is the speculation about the gizillion eveelutions and the speculation is going to boost a lot more now. Also does anyone else think eevee will be similar to another super powered contest wh0re. I hope it stays w/ may for some part of then next saga since I doubt this BF saga is going to last like a twoyears or anything.

Yes, so true.
Eevee has nothing to offer if you ask me. this time, a pokemon NEEDS an evolution to be interesting battle-wise I thin.

What could it do? Tackle. Bite. Sandattack. swift. wish, if we´re lucky.
booooring. maybe the egg never hatches because brock cooks it.

I hope it´s not her skitty replacement because skitty had at least interesting move ( although it was cheap with them)

I believe if May actually does get an Eevee, it will evolve into espeon or (if there are going tobe any) a 4th gen evolution. also i am suprised pikachu learned vold tackle! That was a shocker (no pun intended) but it would have been nice if corphish learned a tm attack o well i can't wait for the battle dome (its episode title makes it sound cool (lol))

4th November 2005, 12:35 AM
Wow, then if you wanna sell something ... give it to Haruka

Don´t you think that maybe Eevee could be a Pokémon XD advertisiment?

But ... on the other hand, if REALLY Haruka got an Eevee, I would like it to evolve it ... the Eeveelution doesn´t matter, but for some weird reason, I think it could evolve into a Vaporeon or a Flareon, I kinda like Eevee and it suits Haruka but ... I have the frightening feeling that it´s gonna be like Super Skitty

They just like to complain about everything about BF. ;)

I think Eevee is pwecious. <3 And IMO there's a good chance it'll evolve into a new D/P Pokemon. Plus, I LIKE babies. Togepi gets too much unfair press. Misty didn't start to lose her personality until well into Johto, by which point she'd had the Evil Egg for over two seasons. I'm sure May will like having something to coddle.

Ditto--Eevee are kawaii~!-^_^- But methinks Jesse'll get super-jealous when the little fluffball hatches though(I remember a few times where she has ogled over it; Breeding Center Secret coming to mind)! But just in case, does anyone have a picture of the egg?

That and Bite but beyond that, a bunch of defensive moves and normal attacks.

Heracross
4th November 2005, 1:17 AM
I think you guys are underestimating the amazing battling ability and impressive range of rare moves that Eievui posesses. A pokémon would be lucky to take a hit from one of its incredibly powerful tackles, and God help you if it releases the feared quick-attack. And just think of its contest potential! It could appeal with sand attack, or even tail whip. :o

A more powerful and useful pokémon would be hard to find.

V Faction
4th November 2005, 1:20 AM
Here MY reasoning for disliking May's supposed Eevee (and therefore the most important!):

- Speculation about a new evolution for D/P. This has got to be the biggest annoyance about new Gens EVER. And the funny thing is it didn't happen (widely) until after GSC! Gah, so all this translated into is just more ammo dammit!

- ANOTHER young Pokemon for May. So what has it been? Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and now Eevee? Do they feel scared to give May an even remotely mature Pokemon? What are they trying to prove with this? And hasn't she gotten enough Pokemon in one span? Why do I ask so many questions?

Heracross

*sigh* Why couldn't we just get a thirteen episode spin-off series based on orre or something? Oh, that's right, because it'd have story and be exciting! :O

But I'm not going to hate Eevee... just yet. When it becomes Super Skitty or the Steriod Squirtle, then I'll hate it. But I'll be positive about it for now!

Now, to get the flame-protection ready...

Missingno. Master
4th November 2005, 3:39 AM
Wait. I'd like to see a picture of this alleged Eevee egg. How do we know it'll hatch into an eevee? For all we know, it could be a Bonsly egg, that Brock will end up getting somehow (he held Misty's Togepi egg until it hatched!). And you're all *****ing all the time because May gets Pokemon similar to Ash. Now she might get an Eevee, something Ash never had, and you're still *****ing! What will please you?

1. Pikachu learned Volt Tackle.
Fine with me. Odds are it won't look good at all because I'm betting it will just be Pikachu tackling something when surrounded by yellow light. *Sigh* Boring. Who wants to bet it will become overused as hell (maybe more overused than Iron Tail! :o)?

2. May gets an Eevee.
Besides the fact that it's a terrible battler, I fail to see what's wrong with this. Eevee isn't showcased nearly as much as its' evolutions, so I don't consider it overused at all.

If it does evolve, (I'm not saying I want it to, I'm just rambling) I'd prefer a Vaporeon, which is the most underused of the 5 Eevee evolutions. God forbid we see another Espeon.

Heracross
4th November 2005, 5:11 AM
I'd like to see it become a Blacky myself, but that just isn't her style. :/

RaikousThunder
4th November 2005, 5:29 AM
I think its cool a main character gets an Eevee. I would like to see it evolve into Jolteon just because another Electric pokemon hasnt ever been on the team(for obvious reasons i know). But still id like to see one. She doesnt need a Flareon or Vaporeon since she has those types already. Espeon has been shown way too much i think. Umbreon would be cool to see but it has had lots of screen time. Goin by this it seems either it wont evolve, we will get a new eeveelution, or we get an eeveelution we are tired of.

Whoo Pikachu gets Volt Tackle... Big surprise or not? It probably will be over used. Iron Tail got used like crazy after Pika learned it. But it really cant do anything else but Iron Tail and Thunderbolt. Why is it such a great pokemon again??

IMPERIAL DRAGON
4th November 2005, 11:56 AM
Now that would be worth *****ing about ¬_¬

Prepare yourself for something taboo, but I'm actually quite content with May obtaining an Eevee, assuming the whispers are true. Sure the extent of it's battling varity is limited and mundane, however it's a valid pokemon to be added to the ranks, however an Eevee being wasted on May is rather dissapointing in my opinion. And sorry to sound cliche and redundant, but my first instinct prior to reading the comments in this thread beyond the first post was "dude, this is seriously gonna be a blatant and cheap method of advertising a 4th gen evolution of Eevee"... otherwise, an Eevee would be pointless and random (although that happens all the time).

As for Volt Tackle, meh, it was inevitble.

Gravy
4th November 2005, 1:43 PM

Its an Eevee egg. The middle part is supposed to represent its fluffy collar, and the top and bottom parts represent its head and body. Its not a Zigzagoon, as the egg would have more zig-zag patterns covering it, and the color scheme of the egg matches Eevee perfectly. If it were a Zizagoon egg, it would have been a darker shade of brown~

If it was Bonsly, it would look similar to Bonsly in some way. Big green circles to act as the 'leaves'/orbs, and the yellow dots that cover its body for example. I see neither of those. It doesn't share ANY similarities to Bonsly, so I don't understand how you come to that conclusion.

Yeah, because Bonsly appearing in the opening really means that its going to hatch from an egg....an egg that doesn't even look like Bonsly in any way...oh, and of course, we can't ignore the fact that they can add and subract pokémon from the opening either, meaning they could plonk Eevee in there when it hatches.

Zigzagoon is just as boring as Eevee, except that Zig doesn't evolve into anything interesting.

Gravy
4th November 2005, 4:02 PM

Yes, but the rest of the egg doesn't, simply because its not the same color. Really, thats how you tell them apart. By looking at the coloration of them.

And besides that, as Alfonso kindly pointed out, they wouldn't bother giving her a non-Kanto pokémon at this point, especially one thats as forgettable as Zigzagoon. And really, Eevee would be more profitable for them to have on the show considering its popularity.

V Faction
4th November 2005, 5:35 PM
Okay, first of all, ANYONE who thought that was a Bonsly egg is one stupid sonnavabeech. As Gravy's lovely diagram shows, Pokemon eggs take similarities from the Pokemon inside and put them into patterns on the shell. To even think that the egg May got, after looking at the pictures, was anything related to Bonsly, one might as well be closing his or her eyes and guessing.

Next, color is an important factor too. That is why, IMOTBOOT (in my opinion, the best opinion out there), this leans heavily toward Eevee while also not ruling out Zigzagoon. The shade of brown on the egg has a closer to relation to an Eevee's coat than Zigzagoon. Zigzagoon would definitely use a darker brown. The zig-zag pattern HOWEVER is a little awkward and I will not rule out the possibility of a Ziggy McShiggy.

Now, if they out right said on the show that it was an Eevee egg, I don't even know why were having the conversation. But if there's still a mystery afoot, I'm going to wait to see what pops out.

EDIT: And to break the flow a bit--

Brock: LOLz look guyz a velpicks how kool
Ash: Didn't you have a Vulpix, Brock?
Brock: i dun no my mindz a littul fuzzah lol
Ash: OH WELLZ! ^_^

Lol! this is such a coincidence because last year around this month I remember I made a post stating that the Advance Generation wouldn't end without someone getting an egg, but everyone kept saying "No, no they won't do that SIMPLY because AG is the anti-Kanto (or Johto)". Well HA !! All I can say is I told ya so!

CyberCubed
4th November 2005, 6:55 PM
As long as nobody holds the egg Pokemon in their arms all day, I'm fine with it.

And since May would look very awkward holding an Eevee in every episode, it's obvious that it'll go in a Pokeball.

that does look like a zigzagoon, zigzagoon is of those two colours and has zigzags, but we will only find out when it hatched won't we?

possible guess
Eevee
Zigzagoon

I do think it is a zigzagoon though

And it seems she will just carry the jar with egg in around...

Lol! this is such a coincidence because last year around this month I remember I made a post stating that the Advance Generation wouldn't end without someone getting an egg, but everyone kept saying "No, no they won't do that SIMPLY because AG is the anti-Kanto (or Johto)". Well HA !! All I can say is I told ya so!
Really now. That's not how I remember it. Why, I do believe most people were banking on Brock to "Egg Get!" And after Bonsly showed up, that was suggested even more. But as we've witnessed, our little May was the one to luck out.

If it is an Eevee (hopefully) I'm 99% sure it won't be a Vaporeon like a lot of people want it to be. Think about it, May already has Squirtle which is a water pokemon, I seriously doubt the'd give her two.

As for that shot of May's egg, it looks more like a Zigzagoon than an Eevee to me. Then again it does look like an Eevee in a way, but i'll stick with Zigzagoon for a while.

Zigzagoon and Eevee have the EXACT same colors...The shades of brown are the same...Zigzagoon's may be slighly lighter...maybe. And how about you ask that Zigzagoon question to May's Munchlax (found in Hoenn), or James's Manene (found in Kanto)? Point is, you know as much as we do, and you could be wrong, so stop stating your opinion/speculation as fact. ;/

C'mon, WHERE on Eevee do you see such a zigzag pattern? On Zigzagoon there are zigzags everywhere. On Eevee, the closest thing is the little ridgy line where the two shades of brown meet on the tail. This is undoubtedly a Zigzagoon egg. In fact, if it doesn't hatch into a Zigzagoon egg, I will change my location to "idiotsville" from the point when I find out what it DOES hatch into until Christmas! That's how sure I am! Look at a Zigzagoon sprite. THen look at the egg. Notice any similarities? Yeah, you do!

Long story short, Zigzagoon has the same colors and pattern as the egg. Eevee has similar colors but no such pattern. It is a Zigzagoon. Hey, it could be worse- it could be another Ash Pokemon!

It's a collar of fluff pressed on a smooth, flat surface. Of course it won't have the exact same shape. Zigzagoon has more stripes and it's egg should have an even number of stripes because Zigzagoon has an even number of stripes with dark Brown on top.

It's a guess considering Zigzagoon's pattern. It's face is dark brown and its tail ends with light brown. I don't know but that's what I think when I think of a Zigzagoon egg. I also picture the stripes being equal in width. We'll see, it's a pathetic Normal type either way. Though Zigzagoon is a waste of time considering the woods are busting at the seems with Zigzagoon.

Tell that to Elekid.

Seriously, you people are using that pattern to decide everything, when quite a few pokémon eggs have patterns that don't actually appear on the pokémon's body. Like Smoochum and Cleffa for example.
The idea of a main character recieving a Zigzagoon is ridiculous, and I don't understand for the life of me why people don't seem to get that.
They're promoting KANTO, Eevee is popular, the egg has the SAME FREAKING COLORS AS EEVEE. >_____>

That and the fact that no other Pokemon has such a pattern! Use your common sense! Eevee doesn't have any Zigzag pattern! It has several ridgy lines, so that'd be what would be on an Eevee egg; a ridgy pattern, UNLIKE the perfect Zigzagoon-esque zigzag on May's Zigzagoon egg.

Just watch May get the new D/P Item, De-Evolution Spray, and use it on Combusken --;;

On the upside though, this Egg has me interested. Eevee wouldn't really be that bad, IMO, though there are so many more Pokémon that would've been better(Yhalothar Elekid =0). I dunno what'll hatch, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. And if I don't like it, hey, more cannon fodder for the CBComplaints Cannon 8D

The episode itself is a bit boring.
The plot is the normal one for a filler: COTD appears, introduces him/her/their uniqueness, Ash&Co. gets invited to join him/her/them, TR tries to steal something but they are stopped. End.
Funny parts: Manene does some of the parts of Meowth in the motto and also because of the standard dialogue cues they use to give their motto they almost said it a second time inmediately after the first one. When Gonbe metronomed a Splash it wasn't funny.
The animation is normal, the TR motto was the flaming one, and not many CGI was used. Volt Tackle looked very good.
Talking about Volt Tackle: It looked too powerful (even for a 180 attack). I don't think it is going to be used as much as Iron Tail, mainly because it takes a lot of space to be properly used so it is not something that you can use in a small field like the ones used in gyms.
Sound: Normal music and I didn't recognized any of the guest voice actors.
Points of interest: Gonbe using Focus Punch while moving at a decent speed (for such a heavy pokemon, that is), Pikachu using Volt Tackle and May getting an egg of something.

seen the episode. Munchlax as of now has 3 attacks Metronome,Solarbeam,and mega punch if there are more please correct me. Munchlax wasnt bad at all in the battle. Man Pikachu's Volt tackle is crazy hot and the way they showed it was even better, munchlax and vileplume both used solarbeam and it did nothing to TR except for putting a couple of scrathes and yet one volt tackle from pikachu sent them blasting off. Not really surprised since its pikachu and they wanted to showcase that attack as extremely powerful which they did i mean pikachu bursted through that mecha of theirs breaking it in half. Manene was extra adorable in this episode they put manene in the TR motto in a different way this time and their whole motto was damn impressive have to see it to believe it.lol.

I have seen the breeding center episode. It was cool that Pikachu learn Volt Tackle and blast Team Rocket's mecha off.
In Pokemon Emerald game, Pikachu or Raichu must be attached to a Light Ball so that it will learn Volt Tackle. And also May's Munchlax now knows another new attack Ice Punch. At also last time in the Mt. Moon episode May's Munchlax learns 2 attacks: Metronome & Solarbeam. It was so cool that Munchlax learn 3 new attacks. May gets a Pokemon egg from the girl who also want to become the Pokemon Coordinator just like May. The egg could inside must be a Eevee or Zigzagoon. If it is a Eevee or Zigzagoon inside, i don't know must let Eevee evolve into evolution stones such as Thunder(Jolteon), Water(Vaporeon) & Fire(Flareon) or give Happiness(Day)Espeon & Happiness(Night)Umbreon or give Eevee as itself or give Zigzagoon to evolve into Linoone or give as itself.

to be honest.
I expected nothing big fromthis episode, but at the end I really liked it.

maybe it is because I&#180;m a may fan and like may centered episodes more than ash centered ones.
But this episodes had many good part IMO:

-vileplume tortures munchlax with a few grass attacks and poor fatty misses with its metronome
-munchlax shows its battling power ( finally!)
-a cute girl of the day, I wanna draw her ^_^
-a chinchou egg! I love my little chinchou...
-volt tackle was a welcome suprise and looked very nice
-manene was funny again ( after its medicore mimic gags in the marshtomb episode), I like how it takes meowth&#180;s part in the motto. every animation fitted ^^
AND it had wobbuffet&#180;s eyes while mimicing it. just CUTE!
-I liked the music. I may be wrong , but did I hear a few new tunes?
-Team Rocket&#180;s egg mecha was nice as well. I like the part after munchlax and vileplume blast the ballon away and team rocket hangs still in the basket ^^

I&#180;d wish that the egg-girl would return in an upcoming contest with HER new pokemon to battle against may&#180;s new egg-hatched "dingsda", but knowing the writers..this isn&#180;t likely.

Is it just me or deal the egg mech look like a Zaku (or is it Zako) with the one pink eye?

XD I was thinking the exact same when I saw that mech. Anyway, I too wasn't expecting much from this episode. I mean, some of us would be under the impression that Gonbe's punch was just a Metronome, and there was that Volt Tackle speculation when we see Pikachu charging up while using Quick Attack in the preview, but I don't think anyone made much of it. Instead, this episode ended up being pretty friggin good. I owe part of it to Nyaasu walking around in the afforementioned mecha. As far as Rocket Dan's devices go, that egg Zako thing was damn interesting, and to see Rocket Dan still going even when the balloon exploded was a nice twist from the norm. After Gonbe and Rafflesia failed, and I saw Satoshi appear on screen, I momentarily forgot about that Quick Attack from the preview and expected him to command the same old same old "Juuman Boruto". Instead, he shouts "Denkou Sekka", and then..... oh god, Volt Tackle looks so f***ing awesome animated. Seems so powerful, too, leaving me to wonder if that'll finally put Pikachu on the same level as all his heavy-hitters. To top it all off, Rokon makes an appearance. ^^

A couple things did bug me about the episode, though. I mean, Jesus Christ, is Nyaasu greedy. He could've made a pretty stealth getaway, but he just had to snatch that Rokon egg, didn't he (I know, the writers would've had the protagonists notice him somehow, but still)? And yet another inexperienced Pokemon of Haruka's is beating a fully-evolved Pokemon as one of its first opponents.... and Rafflesia fainted because Solar Beam was hitting against one of its petals? WTF? Plus, Gonbe learned another new attack in the process. What's that make now? Three TM/Move Tutor attacks that Gonbe knows? You'd think just Metronome would be enough, wouldn't you? On the plus side of that, though, seeing Metronome get a Splash was assuring that this random attack isn't always going to be cheap. And the victory was against a member of the weed lines, which I'm not extremely fond of anyway.

I at first thought the egg was Bonsly, as I had the idea planted in my head about Bonsly making its debut here. On second glance, I'd say its almost definitely a Zigzagoon... but a Zig' in the party would be kinda hard to imagine, since so many appear in the wild in the anime. It's kinda hard to explain my reasoning on that.

Eevee seems like a lesser possibility, though I'd expect the design on the egg to be different... like dark brown on the bottom and light on the top, or vice-versa.

Erm...Continuity error? May and Max said they've never seen a Pokémon egg before, but didn't they in 'A Mudkip Mission'? Er, oh well.

The music was okay, but the only one that really stood out was that awesome piece from the fifth movie they used when Pikachu used Volt Tackle.
Speaking of which, Volt Tackle is just plain cool. I liked the echo effect Pikachu's voice had while using it. Not to mention, the animation looks very neat. I wouldn't mind seeing it often, as long as it's not as much as Thunderbolt O.o

Heh, Munchlax battled and did NOT run around for food (did it?). It's pretty cool as a battling Pokémon, so if that 'comic relief' side vanishes somehow, I won't mind it at all in the future.

Something totally random here, but those chairs the family had bugged me. No one could reach the floor with their feet when they were sitting (not even Brock), but look how short the father's legs are. He'd have to jump off whenever he wants to stand up.

Er, anyway. We might see Shiromi again in the future, as she decided to start traveling at the end of the episode, but I wouldn't care if she didn't. She's not really the type of character that I like.

Manene is officially one of my favorite Pokémon out of the main characters' teams now. It's so cute <3

Although there are several BF fillers that were better in my opinion, this was still a nice episode and definitely worth watching.

That discussion is SO 24 hours ago.

Anyways.
'The Breeding Center and the Pokémon Egg!'
...and of course, Brock does what any great breeder would do in a half hour episode like this. Thats right, sit at the sidelines and do pretty much nothing at all.
I don't get it. They're at a BREEDING centre which partakes in RAISING pokémon EGGS....and Brock is just 'there' again? I like Haruka-centered episodes and all, but sheesh.
But otherwise, it was actually a pretty decent episode. When you compare it to the first batch of BF fillers and the more recent 'Marshtomp episode', there's a big difference. There was a lick of humour, some pretty ok plot developments going on and a bunch of impressive looking attacks to go along with it all.

That battle with Munchlax was going pretty swell until it stopped getting the crap kicked out of it and KO'd Vileplume by brushing its petals with Solarbeam. Bah, shame. It would have been a lot more entertaining to have seen it suffer from some more status effecting moves. Y'know...like poisoning.

Volt Tackle, being the flashy pseudo quick attack that it is, doesn't really look half bad. And the way it was animated as you saw Pika launching itself like a living missle and ripping through the Rocket mecha like paper looked incredibly cool. Though considering that a pretty decent team of animators handled this particular episode, I'm not expecting it to look this good in future episodes. I do hope this doesn't end up being a one-off.

Manene = Feckin' adorable. That thing gets cuter with each episode it appears in. It imitated the other characters a lot more than usual, and its appearence in the motto was thumbs-up material.

Just watched the episode.

The egg looks like the colour of an Eevee but the design of a Zigzagoon. I think an Eevee is more likely but they are so limited with what they can do...
I hope it evolves quite quickly as I cannot see us being amused with an Eevee for too long.
Bring on the D/P Eeveelution!

Volt Tackle just looks cool, I love the speed that Pikachu went at when it used it. And the blurry outline looked great. It must be one powerful attack to be able to break through Team Rocket's robot like that.
I hope it's used but not overused (like Pikachu's Iron Tail <3)

I thought this was a much better episode than I thought it would've been. A cameo for Vulpix was a good thing, we haven't seen it for a while.

Vileplume VS Munchlax was actually a great battle, it was good to see Munchlax let rip (and actually see it battle! o.o), double Solarbeam = awesome.

I love seeing Pokemon Eggs and identifying the Pokemon they're gonna be, 'tis fun.

They do look good in the anime, it'd be great if they made an effort to have them look like this in the games.

Good, good for you.

I hope she doesn't keep it held there through the whole series, for more than one reason. The next 100 episodes would start with May rubbing/looking at her Egg.

Off Topic: Does anyone like Manene?

6th November 2005, 6:22 PM
Hells yeah i like manene.lol. That thing is so damn adorable and cute. If you havent seen this episode then u should really go ahead and watch it. Manene had an extra role in the TR motto and the way it imitated them was just amazing. Manene is getting better with every episode in my opinion.

I have two questions:

1. What attack did Vileplume use against Munchlax after Petal Dance?

2. What Pokemon is in the egg that is pink/red and only yellow at the top

They've used that same one quite a few times now. The animators seem to be getting really lazy with the motto stuff as they're re-using a lot of scenes.
I don't believe that did that sort of thing much, if at all, before they changed the format at the end of Houen. Its not a big deal or anything because it doesn't look half bad, but still....

Stun Spore.
Skitty seems to be the most likely choice.

6th November 2005, 8:36 PM
I'm starting to wonder if May will even keep the egg. What if it's a Zigazagoon whose's missing its momma? What if it's an Eevee with a free spirit?!? OH NOEZ.

A Gravy, your sig (as usual) is priceless.

The Volt Tackle looked really cool. At least Pikachu has a new way to send TR blasting off again :\ I wonder if the writers are going to make it Pikachu's ultimate move. I hope it doesn't get super over used like iron tail is.

I'm really surpised that May got the egg to be honest. Ash has gone a long time without a pokemon evolution or catch so I figured the next pokemon would've gone to him. It seems the writers are content with giving May all the young and experinced pokemon and giving Ash the pokemon that are already strong. Which makes me think and it's probably unlikely but maybe the writers will give Ash a dragonair seeing as the Anime has always made dragon something pretty powerful and uncommon amoung trainers.

What the pictures don't really show clearly is that Metronome causes Munchlax to do splash :p

Someone give the "breeder" Brock an egg for once. I doubt Eevee has a new evolution in D/P because it would've been revealed to us by now as new evos etc of old Pokemon are usually released earlier, and with other new evos.

Hehehe, Brock would like to be a breeder but he has never got any egg.
I feel little disappointed. May got an egg and now she will have a next baby pokemon. I don't know what it will be (Eevee? Really?) but I would like to see her with some evolutions. Anyway, she her babies win contests, so we don't have to worry :p

Saw the episode and I took the following notes:

* It was good to see Vileplume fighting, in almost 10 years of series the grass-type Pok&#233;mon was only in the background and only used Stun Spore
* Munchlax vs. Vileplume was a very funny fight, I hope to see Munchlax in a contest soon, maybe against Manene
* Manene is very cute and funny Pok&#233;mon with a lot of potential to be a great comic relief
* I was hoping Haruka&#180;s egg could be a Teddiursa, but after seeing an egg with a crescent moon, I just hope that Haruka get a useful Pok&#233;mon
* I kinda liked that Haruka got the egg, but this episode showed once more the fact that Takeshi&#180;s only purpose in the series is to be a maid

JazzJazz

Brock is continually a disappointment. This episode really could've been a chance for him to have a bit of characters development, especially since he aims to become a pokemon breeder.

The Egg looks more like a Zigzagoon egg to me tbh
Serebii,no-one has decided what the egg is.It's up to the makers of the anime.You should send ideas,and the best idea will be the Pokemon that is in the egg.It is gonna be a brown Pokemon,so here is a list of all brown pokemon that could be in the egg:
;016;;115;?;273; ;244; {not likely};347; ;343; ;084; ;220; ;105;?;127; ;263; ;290;?;234; ;377; {not likley};133; ;140; ;bonsly; ;161; ;324; ?;287; ,Geodude and,umm,darn I forgot!Or it may be a D/P Pokemon.I hope it's a bonsly.

You know what I find really interesting? The pokedex said that Vulpix had one WHITE Tail at birth then splits as it gets older. What A load of - errrr! I am just frustrated that these people are not specific to the game sometimes. Just like Mewtwo Returns and the Nidoqueen babies! Or the fact that the Baby Vulpix in this episode isn't even small and tiny. Naturally it would be that way but.....this is just my opinion studying animals all my life!

I Also think that the Poke-egg ZigZagoon! It has a Zig-Zag Line and think may needs more 3rd generation pokemon. She lives in Hoeen why not a nice...hmmmm Trapinch! Or Swablu.

11th November 2005, 5:38 PM
I realize this is kinda far-fetched, but there's a slight possibility that the egg results in a Togepi-like situation....say, the egg does turn out to be Bonsly, but upon birth it sees Brock before May...so although Brock did not receive the egg, he ends up taking care of the baby Pokemon....or maybe this is just wishful thinkin :-P

I think it is going to be a evee considering there is no black eye marking on it.;263; It is true that it most likeky is going to be a Togepi situation. Seeing how that was (in my opionin) a good and funny episode they might just bring it back. Know look at evee's sprite and decide for your self ;136;. I suggest look very closley at there eyes.

Change your sprite to Eevee; you have the Flareon sprite instead of the Eevee sprite. :(
Anyways, I agree, May's egg has to be an Eevee. WHEN WILL THAT DARN EGG HATCH! :)

If it's an Eevee, I wonder if their setting us up for a Lilian/Espeon .vs. May/Umbreon contest? But, Knowing the writers it won't evolve.

I slept through the episodes today as well, but I got to catch this one anyway.

-I liked the music that played when Pikachu learned Volt Tackle. I'm pretty sure 'Battle Frontier' played during this moment in the original, but it doesn't seem to be dub music I've heard before.

-Speaking of which...VOLT TACKLE~! 'Bout time!:D

-Vulpix cameo! Rokon is a kawaii lil' bugger and you all know it, nya!:p

-"You'll be seeing a pain, but I can't say where because kids watch this show!" Don't you just love fourth wall breakage?:D

S.Suikun
23rd September 2006, 7:23 PM
Okay, thanks Kojiro. PUSA seems to be going against 4Kids' tradition of keeping the dub names similar to their original names (though I suppose it could pay off when we get to Saori, as 4Kids would probably have named her the oh-so-bland Sarah)

I actually did catch the final minute of the episode, and did Meowth just break the 4th wall? (Something about not saying where he'd be feeling pain because it's a kid show) The last time I remember the 4th wall being broken was Movie 3. 0_o

Took a while but someone finally uploaded this ep on Youtube. Wow, quite a few things happen in this episdoe. Ash, Brock, May and Max sound very good now. Also, Pikachu using Volt Tackle was so cool. If anyone didnt know, that music was from Pokemon Heroes. Though i forget exactly where it was used. Way, way too many egg jokes in this ep. Also, they claim they've never seen pokemon eggs before. WTF, have they completely forgotten the episode A Mudkip Mission? A very nice BF episode. Seems PUSA has been doing quite a few changes.

Also, it seems that KidsWB no longer airs Pokemon. YTV does and im quite thankful for that. Also, for those that missed the episiode, head over to YouTube. That's where ive been watching all the BF episodes to date.

Finally, Pikachu learns Volt Tackle. Like many others, I was like, WTF when I saw it use Volt Tackle in the Mirage Pokemon special in April. This attack won't be used much probably. But I like it.

Now, May gets a Pokemon egg...

Eevee still hasn't evolved and probably never will since May is leaving the show. But, who knows?

And the quote of the episode is:

"I've got a pain, but I can't tell you where it is cuz kids watch this show!" Meowth.

Idiot 2: IT'S ZIGZAGOON!

Episode 53, in their narriation "Jaden" was all "I'm talking to my fans blah blah blah" (as in he new it was a TV show as in breaking the fourth wall by $Kids :O), the original episode of that made no direct implication of the viewers and Sho was just saying its a new year and whatever.

Lol yeah the egg was funny, and one person who made a bet it was Zigzagoon then took a trip to idiotsville, with pink text and a Cleffa avatar.

This episode was pretty good, though not a favorite of the season so far. I liked how Nicolette didn't realize she was thinking out loud, the little vulpix, and Mime Jr. substituting for Meowth during the motto. I didn't like Nicolette as much, but her parents were pretty great. The best line of the episode definitely had to be Meowth saying that Jessie and James are a pain, but he won't say where because kids are watching. :D LOL At least the show's dub writing has gotten sharper. The voices do keep getting better as well. Although Meowth is still the worst of the bunch, at least he's getting in a few good lines that make me LOL.

Overall, 7/10.

26th September 2006, 6:54 AM
Haven't heard the voices since that horrible Mirage special. Gotta say that the voices are much better. I liked May's "Mirage" voice, even though it made her sound older, but I like her new one as well. I still DESPISE Ash's new VA. He sounds like Richie now. Meowth's voice now is accent-less. I suppose they got rid of it because he had a Brookyln accent when he grew up in Hollywood? IDK. I liked his accent and he's another character they should have left alone. Although, when he was running around in that Egg-mecha and stealing the eggs, I thought the tone of his voice and his new VA made him sound eviler. Jesse's VA I like. James' new voice isn't that great but I get I'll warm up to it. Brock's VA I like. Max's VA isn't very different if you ask me.
I only saw like...the second half of the ep. Kinda blah, IMO. Yay for the egg hatching into Vulpix! I luff Vulpix.

May: LIKE OHMYGOSH! -stops and stares- A FARM! THAT'S THE COOLEST THING EVER!!
Voltorb: -thundershock-
Nicollette: You trespassed! Shame on you!
May: -gasp- I was... TRESPASSING!? NOOOO!!!
Nicollette: Wait, I saw you on TV! You ROCK!
May: Really? COOL!

Nicollette's Mom: I want Nicollette to be a Pokemon Coordinator, but she's too shy!
Ash, May, Max, and Brock: Nicollette? Gee, I wonder who THAT could be!
Nicollette's Dad: Oh. Yeah. I. Forgot. Our. Daughter's. Name. Is. Nicollette.
Ash, May, Max, and Brock: Really? I never would have GUESSED that was who you were talking about!
May: What kind of farm do you have?
Nicollette's Mom: We have an EGG FARM.
May and Max: You have an EGG FARM!!???
Nicollette's Mom: Yes. We raise eggs! One's about to hatch.
May and Max: An egg? HATCHING!? Lyke, OHMYGOSH! That's SO KEWL!!!!
Nicollette's Dad: Do. You. Want. To. See. It.
May and Max: You mean, we get to look at EGGS!? Real, live EGGS!?
Nicollete's Mom: Sure.
May and Max: Wow, this is like, the most exciting thing EVER!!!

--

Nicollette: I wanna battle you!
May: OK! Then I can pressure you into becoming a Coordinator!
Nicollette: Then I'll battle your... Munchlax!
May: What? Munchlax!? I can't battle with Munchlax! WHAT DO I DO!!!!?
Nicollette: Ha ha, I've got her now!
May: -kicks Nicollette's butt-

Nicollette: Wow, I found a giant egg!
Nicollette's Dad: A. Giant. Egg. Cool. I. Wonder. How. It. Got. Here.
Giant Egg: -steals eggs-
Nicollette's Dad: Oh. No. Come. Quickly. Kids.
Kids: WHAT!?
Nicollette's Dad: The. Giant. Egg. Stole. Our. Other. Eggs.
Kids: OH NO! How could that BE!?
Team Rocket: It's really US, stupids!
Kids: Oh no! Who would've guessed!?
Team Rocket: We're Team Rocket blah blah blah!
Nicollette's Parents: Who are they?
Team Rocket: Twerpette, tell them who we are!
May: What? What do you mean!? TELL THEM WHO YOU ARE!!? How can I!? Stop looking at me that way!! I just... can't... handle the pressure! -faints-
Ash: They're the BAD GUYS!!
Nicollete's Dad: Nah. They. Couldn't. Be. I've. Seen. Plenty. Of. Bad. Guys. And. They. Didn't. Look. Like. Them.
Team Rocket: We stole your eggs!
Nicollette's Mom: Oh! I guess they ARE the bad guys after all!

-after a long battle in which Pikachu learns Volt Tackle, everyone is staring at an egg-

Egg: -hatches-
Everyone: A VULPIX!
May: That's the awsome-est Vulpix EVER!!
Brock: And we just saw it HATCH!
Viewers: ...duh.
Nicollette: Take this egg!
May: An EGG!? For ME!?? You'll be a great Coordinator, by the way.
Nicollette: Really? You think so?
May: Sure!
Nicollette: Well, if someone on TV thinks so, it must be true! You're right! I'm going to be a Coordinator!
Everyone: YAY!!!

And our heroes walk off into the sunset.

Meh... that episode needed spoofing. xP Not that I have anything against it... I'm sure the show will get better as PUSA and the new VA's get used to things...

And BTW...


You give me a pain but I can't tell ya where 'cause kids are watchin' this show!

Once again, a sound episode from the good Battle Frontier series. Why was May given another egg to keep, when she saved one that just hatched in front of her? It would have made sense to give her the Vulpix (which Brock made no comment about his old one!), although she then would have had two fire types, so...make of it what you will.

Volt Tackle will be used in every single Pikabattle until it isn't special anymore.
Then they will give it a new attack that everyone thinks is awesome until it gets old from over-showcasement.
It just go's on and on my friends.
Some poeple, starting watching it,
not knowing what it was,
And now they keep on watching it forever just because of bland writers.

Eevee should be an interesting addition to May's team IMHO. Eeveelutions here we come.

The Volt Tackle and Munchlax battle were the only good things in this episode.

She didn't.
If you listen carefully, you will hear that she does indeed say Vileplume.

I thought this episode was boring. I mean, how could they not notice the huge egg? Only a snorlax could fit in that!!!

I haven't seen a Pokemon episode in 4 years, I haven't even played the games in a long time too. But I saw this episode and I couldn't help but notice that Ash's and Brock's voice were waaaay different. Even Team Rocket sounded a little weird when they said "We're blasting off again." What happened to the old voice actors? Why did they leave? I know the answer is kind of simple, but couldn't they find any better voices? I didn't recognize Meowth! And whoa I didn't know Battle Frontier was the 9th season. o.o

I agree with that.

Egg obtaining episodes are never the greatest plot-wise. At least this one had Munchlax learning a new move.

Anything is better than episodes like Whichever way the wind blows.

TR would have gotten away scot free if they didn't try for the Vulpix egg

I liked this episode because May got an egg and Pikachu learned Volt tackle!At first Brock said what the than at the end he said that was Volt tackle.

That COTD bugged the hell outta me... at least she made amends with May.

I liked seeing all those cool egg patterns. The Teddiursa egg is too cute!

Did anyone else think Meowth was superbly animated inside that egg mecha? He looked positively bad-*ss ^_^ Volt Tackle also looked fantastic! Though we all know it's little more than Quick Attack on batteries :P

Ah well, still a fair episode.

Liked seeing all the eggs. Meowth in the egg-mecha was epic, and the Volt Tackle was impressive, despite the fact it just seems like a more powerful Quick Attack. The girl irritated me though. Alright episode.

Good episode. I loved the cat fight lol. Cool how Pikachu learned Volt Tackle and May got an egg. I love waiting for eggs to hatch.

I think it was nice that may got an egg, she definetley deserved it.

It was a bit of a shock to see Pikachu learn Volt Tackle though.

hm, this egg episode wasn't the best one but there were some things in it that are useful for the later episodes.

Loved it when meowth said "your giving me a pain, and I can't say where cause kids watch this show"

I love lines like this, like back in season one, there was a similar line by meowth, when he said something about filling a half-hour.

Nice episode, and great that May got an egg...i thought she might get a Zigzagoon ^^

Good episode. Almost forgot this was the episode Pikachu learned Volt Tackle.

May also gets Eevee's egg here. The battle between Munchlax and Vileplume was fun to watch. I liked how the writers really tried to connect the contest story to other episodes, such as the girl Nickolette admiring May and wanting to be a coordinator.

I've seen this episode 3 years ago. I liked Nicolette as well. Also, I like the fist time Pikachu used Volt Tackle for the first time. I liked that new attack.

It seemed to be really Filler-ish.

I only liked that Pokemon Eggs were shown and that Munchlax battled Vileplume. Munchlax finally did something useful.

Other than that, TR's egg-shaped robot was a turnoff. 4/10

Munchlax VS Vileplume was great battle for May.

And Pikachu learning Volt Tackle was fantastic.

I like the episode, but I am only a bit surprised that they actually took that egg-mecha inside.

Ash said that this was the first time May and Max saw Pokemon eggs. Did he forget about the episode with all the Mudkip eggs?

Anyway, Pikachu learns a new attack: Over-used electric dash...I mean Volt Tackle. And May gets an Eevee egg. Not a bad episode.

Awesome that Pikachu fianlly learns the powerful Volt Tackle!
Is this the move that Piakchu has been trying to learn over the course of a cew episodes?
Or am I thinking of a different move?

This episode was ok. It was cool to see Pikachu finally learning its Signature Move - Volt Tackle. I'm really glad May finally received an egg. The way Pikachu learned Volt Tackle was very cool, it did a Quick Attack, and while running it turned into Electrically charged Quick Attack and then eventually the full Volt Tackle attack. The battle between Munchlax and Vileplume was very cool. Munchlax's Focus Punch attack is cool as well.

39/100

May gets and egg and the chance to show off her skills while Pikachu learns Volt Tackle. Not a terrible episode overall.

This was a great episode, probably one of my favorites in this series. Pikachu learning volt tackle was epic and I loved how much focus May got in this episode, as well as getting an Eevee egg to raise.

This is one of my favorite Battle frontier episodes. It's nice of May when she was helping Nicolette to become Coordinator, The battle between Vileplume and Munchlax was good too, Munchlax got to do something after a long time.
Pikachu finally learning Volt Tackle was awsome, I liked how he sent Team Rocket flying by using that move.
May getting an Eevee egg was good as well.

I didn't think Pikachu would learn Volt Tackle so soon.

My favorite line:
"You're givin' me pain somewhere I can't say 'cause kids watch this show!"

Hilarious! :)

May being shocked by those Voltorb that were guarding the nursery made me laugh. Poor her. I would've been impressed by Team Rocket's nursery infiltration plan had Ash and friends not been so gullible as to believe that the giant egg with an R mark was a real Pokemon egg. Anyway, Pikachu learning Volt Tackle here was a surprise.
