    Onix was show evolving into Steelix, as Brock likened it to how the machine turned Sudowoodo into gold in a similar way.

    Hmmm...I thought as such.

    WhoaCrap, now my hopes are high for Onix to have evolved when the gang get to Pewter City. I know it's a tad shaky, but they're so close to Pewter and Onix has yet to do ANYTHING. At least as a Steelix it would look cool D:

    Well, it WAS Brock's starter Pokémon. I guess anything's possible...but Onix before GEODUDE(by now, it really should be a Graveler)?! ...Oh, great. Now you've got me doing it.-_-; And last time I strayed away from a subject I got yelled at somewhat. Back to the topic, guys~!

    Rocket Dan (as well as the premiere of the new ending, maybe Ballade Battle Frontier too) are definitely to thank for keeping this episode from being complete s***. The scene where Musashi gets Usokkii with a jet pack while wearing a wet suit, the return beam hitting Musashi, and even that bonzai mecha was better than I expected it'd be from the preview (I thought the way it says its name was pretty funny). Also, concerning that "Zelda" reference, I think there's something similar in the Harvest Moon games, and .hack to a lesser extent. I'm not sure, but I think there's some kind of myth about a lake goddess that rewards you if you honestly tell her you tossed something in there. Can anyone confirm this?

    The hell are ya talkin' about? Iwark was probably the most useful Pokemon Takeshi ever had given its girth, and as far as any of his Pokemon go, it was used quite a bit. Besides, we all know that, with Takeshi and Jirou so determined on keeping Nibi Gym a gym that specializes in rock-types, there's no way in hell it's gonna evolve.

    The only reason Takeshi brought up Iwark evolving into Haganeil is because he was comparing the golden Usokkii as being a rock-type that turned into a steel-type.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    All right, now we officially know what happens when somebody jumps in front of a Pokeball's return beam. They get zapped and paralyzed.

    It was primarily the comedy bits that saved this episode from mediocrity. The ballad varation of Battle Frontier at the end was nice, and even made for a nice emotional touch.

    In terms of what town they decided to rip off this week, it had various vibes of the first Squirtle Squad episode. Someone get a framegrab and compare.

    And is it me, or is Sudowoodo less than half the height it used to be? The one in Johto towered over Brock, yet this one was about as tall as Max.

    Also, the intro was a bit different this week, not counting the inclusiuon of Hinata and Jackie. There were various sound effects not present before.

    It was a good episode, because it served it's purpose well.

    This was meant to be the "breather" between all the heavy plot stuff going on. The Anabel 2-parter, the Ranger/Deoxys 2-parter, the Harley/Jessie Contest 2-parter, and the future TR disbandment episode as well as the Pewter Gym ep.

    Since there are quite a lot of 2-parters and other important plot focused episodes around this, this was nice to have as a "breather" between these arcs.

    I enjoyed it, but since I don't understand a lick of Japanese I can't pass judgement on it till I see the dub....a year from now.

    Nope.

    Sudowoodo is 3' 11", which makes it shorter than most 10 year olds. Shortie D:

    As far as I know, sudowoodo isn't that tall... so the one shown to be around Max's height (in this episode) would be more accurate, correct?

    Different Pokemon can obviously be different heights and sizes. Age and I guess different genes would be obvious reasons. Remember that unusually large Onix from To Master the Onixpected? Heck, even May's Bulbasaur is slightly smaller than Ash's. And Brock's Mudkip was bigger than all of the other Mudkip at the...um, place where he got it.

    Now, we all know that this answer is pretty much the biggest bull**** there is when it comes to Pokemon sizes.... but he's basically right people. =P

    I rather like that older picture of Brock and Sudowoodo. It... it makes me wants Bonsly to evolve now! Fat chance of that ever happening any time soon.

    Ummm...correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't those newly hatched baby Mudkip? He was running a Breeding Farm that was filled with baby Mudkip, and Brock's Mudkip was far older than them, so it would obviously be larger...

    I believe you're correct, Brock's mudkip seemed to be the one that looked after all of the babies...

    ...exactly? :P That's the point, Pokemon change size as they grow older.

    So it's not a shiny then? Poop. The way they did it was really lame. So this kid is a genius who made a machine that accidently changed his Sudowoodo's skin color? Um, okay.

    I like Ballad Battle Frontier, but for a serious ep. That was the problem with this one, the corniness that led to sunset ending #250. If the entire thing was humor, it would have been great.

    The humor we did get was hilarious though. The entire scene around the lake until Ash-tachi popped up was hilarious. Characters getting larger heads for a few seconds and characters randomly being dressed into something different before you can blink for the win once again.

    I seriously hate the TR mecha. :O

    That Mecha was stupid--I think the eyes bothered me or something. And Sudowoodo's voice seriously annoyed me, but TR was freaking hilarious this episode.

    So I'm guessing Pokémon have a different cellular structure from humans, and the minute hesitation from when they turn completely red to being pulled in is to check if this cell structure is of a Pokémon or something else, and only pulls them in if it's analyzed as positive. In Jessie's case, she was obviously rejected, and I guess she wasn't able to move since, well, all her cells were just analyzed. Hm?

    This episode was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. I laughed out loud quite a few times, especially at Team Rocket. For some reason watching the Sudowoodo/Bonsly interaction also amused me.

    I actually felt kind of bad for the CotD, though I didn't really understand what he was trying to do with that machine. O_o

    So... the Suduwoodo is obviously a shiny, right. Brock's Bonsly obviously interacts with it?

    It's been said that sudowoodo is not a "proper" shiny, it seems it was involved in some experiment that went wrong and made it a golden colour... but, by the end of the episode, it reverts to the colours of a normal sudowoodo.

    Eh, what the terribly hackneyed plot left to be desired was pretty much made up for by Usokki's hilarious antics. Frantically flailing about through the forest, stumbling into the bar, and such.

    And Kinya's hair kept reminding me of Ichiko from the ninja school episode.

    I think what happened was he was trying to give it resistance to water, although I'm not sure exactly why. He was successful, but the process also gave it that golden sheen. Sudowoodo noticed it right away, got really upset, and ran away. Kinya felt really bad about it and figured out how to reverse the process, and was trying to get Sudowoodo back when Ash and the gang showed up.

    Gold doesn't rust so it would make an effetive shield against water (and radio waves too.)

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

    Okay, off topic, but with the Mudkip thing, yes, I assume it was nearly an adult, but I think Brock did make some comment that the Mudkip was big, so perhaps the Mudkip was bigger than the average Mudkip of similar age, rather than simply comparing it to babies, which would obviously be smaller.

    Not really that bad an episode, I did like James' reaction to Jessie suggesting he throw Manene into the lake.
    I did notice one little animation error though, when the gang first enter Kinya's house, for a split second you see the golden Sudowoodo enter with them. Anybody else spot that? I was seriously WTFing and rewatching several times to make sure.

    This episode was pretty good. The gold Sudowoodo was cool. Jessie's fantasy with making Sudowoodo gold was kinda funny. Jessie wanting to use Mime Jr was hilarious as well as Meowth's and Sudowoodo's conversation. It was weird when Kenan tried to return Sudowoodo but hit Jessie instead. I felt bad for how Sudowoodo first became gold. The TR mecha, I have to admit, was really cool.
