    You got it.

    What I was refering to was that Corphish, Torkoal, and Glalie all learn Protect naturally as well, so what stopped them from learning it? Especially Glalie, as it has no protecting move while Torkoal has Iron Defense and Corphish has Harden.

    I couldn't get a pic, but in the trainer screen in the contest you can see the Surskit and Azurill owners in the Izabe contest

    Yeah, I'm starting to feel bad for that guy. His hopes and dreams are being crushed in Kanto.

    One of the coordinators had a Koffind. I would have killed to see that thing get in a decent battle/appeal.

    People, please do not discuss future episodes in this thread...I don't like having to remind you all of this each week. These threads are for discussion of this episode ONLY unless a prior episode actually links in with it

    Though Eevee has been exposed to the idea of contests. Remember Harley's revenge when Eevee watched? And the fact it wasn't a knock out and the timer actually got to run out this time softened the blow. I'm sorry but she deserved this one.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    I've just seen the pictures and I liked this episode. It's good that Eevee didn't totally defeat Marshtomp and the moment about Brock falling in love was really funny!

    Ontopic, this episode was not the train-wreck I expected. Eevee learning dig was no surprize, appeals or battles, it needs at least three moves. (And i'm assuming it can Tackle) What did surprize me was Brock's showing, his appeal was downright great, it even had May on edge. Marshtomp's battles were impressive especially the one with Eevee I was actually engrossed in the battle when the timer went off Brock can't have lost that much of his battle prowess, to give a seasoned coordinator a run for her money.

    It seems the reason the lady wanted Brock to enter the contest was to Beat the little girl, or give her a challenge or something along those lines.

    Team Rocket was selling fake contest ribbons, and other merchendise, and by the end of the episode when it seems that they made a hefty sum of money, and Jessie was cheering about becoming Top Coordinator. So i'm assuming the money will go towards her next contest.

    I think I'm really starting to like eevee, it hung in the battle pretty well, but then squirtle did the appeal again. I was glad to hear absol was in a battle but it seemed a bit weak in the fight which is sa. I knew May would win but still it was a great episode.

    Correct.

    Eevee: Shadow Ball, Dig, Tackle

    Marshtomp: Water Gun, Mud Shot, Tackle, Protect

    Well, just saw the pics...
    I agree with the "brock shouldn't win, because he will only have that ribbon, and may needs it" idea. Still, i think that Marshtomp fought pretty well, for a pokemon who doesn't have experience.
    Other than that...8/10.

    Some people are tlaking as if Marshtomp has no battle experience at all (O_o)

    So the blue sphere's that were launched by Marstomp were infact Mudshot..?

    Well apart from a single battle against Grovyle, he doesn't. Unless you're willing to count it's battle against Hanson's Shedinja, which never came to any sort of conclusion.

    yeah a battle in which it got back up and evolved after taking a leaf blade(which going by all of your logics should've ko'ed him instantly.) that kinda proves he ain't that far off from combusken, now since Grovyle evolved he left him in the dust.

    It was more of a sparring match anyway. I doubt Grovyle was putting it's all into that attack like it usually tends to, considering it was going up against such a weak opponent. Mudkip wasn't performing particulary well from what we saw, so for all we know Grovyle could have just been toying with it.

    And one battle hardly puts it in the same league as Combusken. Nor does an evolution, which more often than not doesn't always indicate a pokémon's strength in the show anyway.

    Wow, a Team Rocket outfit that didn't just stop at formal-wear and glasses. It seems to be that the crazier outfits team rocket disguises themselves in is inversely proportional to Ash & Co.s recognition of TR. The less recognizable TR gets, the more they are recognized. :P

    Eh, for Brock's loss it makes him look really bad (though I think he's my favorite character), but for the series to not drag on it was inevitable. And as most people have said, "What would Brock do with one ribbon anyways?"

    Pretty good contest, not what I was expecting at all though. Forretress didn't get much screentime, which sucks. Marshtomp and Bonsly were cool. Brock should have won, but we all know that May has way more experience as a Coordinator, thus she pwned Brock.

    I'm suddenly reminded of Krabby. It did practically nothing its entire life. Ends up kicking some Exeggutor palm tree butt and evolving on the spot.

    So nah, I think they just wanted May to win. Why, oh why, couldn't they have gone with a Bonsly vs. Eevee match.

    This episode does look pretty good. Some great avatar moments too. And Marshtomp proved its worth, so I'm glad. But Absol should have done more, and Eevee's first battle should have had more to it.

    Priceless. Just Priceless.

    The first contest in Kanto that wasn't decided by KO.

    Pretty decent episode judging by the pictures. I'm suprised Brock got so far on his first contest but hey, the episode wouldn't have any point if he didn't. Too bad Foretress fails to do something decent, I'll live though.

    What's this? Team Rocket not failing for once? Although they could lose it all like they did in the Johto league...meh.

    Right, seen pics... Protect had good animations, but I think the two overall best points of animation were the scene with the groups reaction to Brock entering the contest, and the other is the scene with Brock and Bonsly making angry faces together.

    Question Time: Right, I saw Water Gun, I saw Mudshot, but what was the small blue energy balls shot. Please tell me that wasn't Mudshot, because I thought that was when all mud was splashing everywhere.
