    Wow, one full motto and two 3/4-length mottos all in the same episode. As a motto lover, I was in heaven with this episode. I loved how Butch and Cassidy kept messing up the mottos too (though I liked Butch's "I'm doing this all from memory"). I didn't really like the new Cassidy voice, but I thought the new Butch was right on. Let's face it, love or hate his voice, Butch just wouldn't be Butch without the frog voice, right? I especially liked his line "That girl's known me forever and still calls me more names than you can find in a baby book". LOL I was surprised with all the voice changes that Nanba's exactly the same, though I shouldn't be surprised since the gengar in the Mystery Dungeon special had his voice (LOL at "Samba").

    Overall, I really enjoyed this episode. The temporary breakup between Jessie, James, and Meowth wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, and it was so sweet how Meowth got them back together. It was funny to hear Butch called "Paunch" too. LOL One little quibble, though: WHERE did Max learn about Butch and Cassidy?!? They never shared an episode before.

    Overall, 10/10.

    I thought I mentioned this already, but just think about all the travel time the gang has had. It's not hard to imagine that Ash and Brock have used some of that time to tell May and Max lots of stories about their past adventures. This was even hinted at at the beginning of the Misty two-parter; May and Max already knew who she was.

    edit: I did indeed, on the last page in fact.

    What did you expect? This is Pokemon, the land of plot holes. XD

    Anyhow, I was surprised as to how well PUSA handled the rest of Team Rocket. They kept the "My name is Butch" running joke intact and I loved how Cassidy more-or-less hit on James. My only qualm about the episode was that PUSA seemed unable to make up their mind as to the type of food Meowth used to bring his teammates together. Is it a cookie? Is it a biscuit? Is it Jimmy Hoffa?

    November 11, 1918 - At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France. The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives. In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure.

    Is Cassidy really voiced by Hilary Thomas? Because judging by the tone she doesn't sound like the other characters Hilary has voiced in eps before this.

    Hm a decent episode. I liked how they went there separate ways again. Kind of refreshing. Nothing else really interesting, though.

    Okay for a Team Rocket-focused episode. Cassisy and "Biff"'s reappearance was nice, seeing as they didn't appear at all in Hoenn and only briefly in "The Scheme Team". If Max hadn't have shown up they might have got away with the scam too.

    I always love those team rocket episodes. Good thing that Jessie and James got reunited in the end.

    9/10

    I wasn't impressed with this episode at all. Seriously, how many times have Jessie, James, and Meowth had a fight? They always stick together in the end anyway, so what was the point in having them split up in this episode? It was good to see Butch and Cassidy again (and their new dub voices). But seeing them with different partners this time just wasn't the best thing to see. Butch and Cassidy belong together, and Jessie and James belong together. 3/10.

    It does make sense for May and Max to know who TR was because as Geodude said Brock and Ash would have told them offscreen. What do you think they just walk in utter silence until the next episode.

    It was interesting to see Jessie and James with different partners and the mottos between the new partners, so it wasn't a too bad episode but obivously TR wasn't going to break up, much less partner for good with another team they don't even like.

    It was great to see so many pokemon of the Team of Rocket, like Dodrio, Rhyfon and more.
    I never thought Jessie will team up with Butch. I think it's a great idea ha ha, sounds funny to see James with the nervious Cassidy. Eventually I can't see them being together altough they are from the same team.

    Funny how Jessie teamed up with Butch and James with Cassidy... but of course they could not stay like that for long

    I always enjoy episodes where TR say their going to go their separate ways. But, as usual, by the end of the episode, they end up back together.

    It's been a while since I've seen actual TR grunts!

    Also cool to see Botch and Cassidy again!

    This episode was ok... It was cool to have Cassidy and Butch back. It was interesting to see Pikachu be able to unlock the cage it was trapped in. It was odd and funny to see both Cassidy/Butch and Jessie/James stating their own mottos together. Corphish was used a lot in this episode especially during the tournament. It was cool to see a Pinsir using Guillotine.

    I enjoyed this episode a lot. it's great to see Cassidy again, Her Nurse Joy disguise was good. LOL, Jessie kicking Butch in the face was hilarious.
    I liked how James teamed up with Cassidy and Jessie teamed up with Botch Butch. Also, It's funny when the group mistook Butch for James.
    Those TR grunts and their Pokemon reminded me of the TR grunts in "Battle aboard The St. Anne".
    I'm glad Jessie, James and Mewoth reunited and got back as a team at the end.

    You can always count on JJ&M o find a way to break one-and-a-half biscuits in to three pieces.
    With the way this episode started, I always think it's going to go in to those '__ hours earlier' kind of things.

    Cassidy & Butch were cool as usual but I wasn't pleased by how Jessie and James split up since they had done that before and it wasn't as entertaining this time. 6/10

    Hee hee I like Team Rocket break up episodes and this one was even better cuz we saw Cassidy and Butch again. I also liked seeing normal low level Team Rocket grunts cuz we almost never see those.

    Jessie and Butch made an interesting duo, but I felt bad when James got stuck with Cassidy. I thought that the switch was a good plot idea.

    Hmm Butch and Cassidy weren't as menacing as they used to be, in the older episodes they used to be a lot superiour to Jessie and James...but now they've kind of sunk to their level, just with a better plan. Oh well, the episode was good anyway. Oh, the motto was hilarious. Pies and white gloves? Huh?
    Would it be blasphemous to say I preferred the later bumbling Butch and Cassidy? Lop sided rivalries get kinda overused in comedy to me, in AG especially the trio got their butt handed to them by EVERYONE. I liked the trio having at least one even handed rivalry where both sides fell victim to slapstick abuse and childish breakdowns. I especially love those minion rivalries in cartoons, where two keep trying to one up the other for glory and approval from their boss (who probably can't stand either of them). The trio even got to double cross Butch and Cassidy this time, after multiple episodes of being deliberate collateral damage to their schemes.

    I'd have loved to have seen more developed schemes of the two groups trying to claim Pikachu as their claim to fame from Giovanni (likely ruining both of their schemes in the process).

    Okay I know it's about ten years too late to post but anyway.
