On their way to the Battle Pyramid, Ash & co. find an unusual Pokémon inside a forest, a golden Sudowoodo which quickly runs away. When they reach the next town they tell the townsfolk of this Sudowoodo, they decide to go find it. However Team Rocket also have their eyes on this Golden Pokémon. Will Ash & Co. be able to save it from Team Rocket?
Sounds like a cool episode. The golden Sudowoodo is probably like the Crystal Onix since I don't think a shiny Sudowoodo is gold.
YOU JUST LOST THE GAME

AND LIFE ITSELF.
This episode was okay, it wasn't the best that I've seen though. The Gold Sudowoodo ended up being a original colored Sudowoodo after its trainer used some machine on it, people trying to capture it when it was gold colored, and Team Rocket trying to capture it but failing as usual. Wasn't that interesting. Next episode's going to be better though.
It's only with best interests at heart that I say that. Sudowoodo has never been high on the 'preferred' scale in the anime. Looking at what they could have provided for it instead, this is definitely on the low end.
The hyper surrounding the Ranger special, the 10th Anniversary special, and the recently released May ending effectively shoved this episode to the back burner. Can't we just put it out of its misery?
Meowth's Gio fantasy of the day reminded me of the King Midas story with everything gold...Meowth really is desperate, isn't he?XD
What was the kid doing with his Sudowoodo anyway? I'm guessing he's some sort of inventor and used Sudowoodo as his lab rat. No wonder Sudowoodo ran away from him then, if that was the case! That poor tree...
I don't know why, but I really love this episode.
Of course, I've only seen pictures, it but looks pretty awesome to me. Maybe it's Sudowoodo. I don't know, but seeing this episode makes me really love Sudowoodo again. Feck that thing is awesome...and cute too.
I love that Ash only tries to catch a Pokemon when he can't. It's frikken hilarious >.>
How Sudowoodo merely punched the Pokeball back and it hit Ash in the face was priceless.
The Gold Sudowoodo itself was a great idea. I'm not quite sure, but didn't Mr. CotD use the goldening machine so his Sudowoodo could repel water? Because he was in a lake and wasn't freaking out.
Speaking of gold plating though, that Team Rocket Dream was messed. I mean honestly, wouldn't a gold robe get heavy? How about some comfy gold bed sheets to crush you into sleep paralysis? 8D
Overall, the episode may not have had anything too special to it, but that Gold Sudowoodo looked damn good. And what's with the randomness of Brock mentioning Onix? Curious that they're returning to Pewter in just a few episode, neh? ;O
This was a good episode!
I love gold
The trainer was really cute (and I mean like a new addition to my male hunk shrine cute)
And they played an interesting song where they had the Battle Frontier lyrics in it. I love Akina! *_* wish she'd sing more openings.
The cliché trainer/pokémon relationship plot with added Team Rocket mecha ruined this one as far as I'm concerned. Sudowoodo isn't about friendship and trust. Sudowoodo is about insane, pointless antics and disturbing phallic oddities.
Team Rocket and the Sudowoodo flailing around in mid run ( & the animation I suppose) saved this from being total garbage. And in the end, both factors provided me with a few laughs, which means this didn't fall flat on it's face. Jessie going for a spot of underwater jetpack fishing and Sudo waving to all the burly looking cowpoke in the bar before fleeing like a madman were some of the better highlights.
Just to note, that alternate 'Battle Frontier' song near the end was really nice sounding.
