This is my favourite episode of the Battle Frontier arc. Although it was disappointing that the Slaking was a mecha, Aipom made up for it.
Aipom's First Apperance Yaay I've watched this episode 7 times
My God... I can't believe Ash just sat there. Remember when Mankey took his hat, how piss'd off he was?! He did some stupid things just to try and get it back... well I guess Ash has so show maturity at some time or another o_o;; Plus, him wrestling with that Aipom in his face? oh lord I almost died laughing.
And that King Kong ripoff scene? Funny as hell. I honestly thought the Slaking was real, so when the "fur" melted off to show metal, I was amazed that Team Rocket put so much effort into making a realistic looking mecha
Decent episode all in all.
lord freeza i really need to use the space skype
If That Had of happened i could see aipom focus punching the crap out of ash
This is the beginning of the friendship between Aipom and Ash.Also ash almost would have never had his Battle frontier/advanced generation hat back.

All those awesome Aipoms were what made this episode for me, especially Ash's former one. Nice little parody of King Kong, when Slaking was introduced I was wondering how long it'll be in the anime before they did a parody. There sure was a lot of berries.
and ash's hat is stolen again>_>
it get's a bit standard if you ask me.
I thought that Slaking is real, but he don't.

This was a great episode. TR fooled, again. The Aipom "clan" was cool and I wonder how this season would have been if Ash hadn't gotten his hat back....
i found this a good episode, usually team rocket comes with their machine robot vehicles but this time i was thinking it really was a big slaking ^^
also the aipom who stole the hat from ash i found good, i think this is going to be the new jiglypuff.
cool a slaking aww its not real should have know(team rocket!)
Signature StuffSpoiler:- undefined:
Lmao Aipom gave the hat back just so it can keep taking it in the future. This makes me want to watch the episode again and I will watch it again
Ash's team right now
If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

Hahaha this was an ok episode. 6 out of 10. Btw the person that posted that aipom is NOT caught in this episode its because its gonna be caught later.

Gosh, that would suprising if that was a real Slaking. But of course its a team rocket machine. How does tr always end up near Ash and co.? And the episode started the aipom
following ash. SOMEONE KILL THE ANNOYING MONKEY!
Aipom brains are really good. You just simply slit their throats, and make an Aipom blood smoothie. No more hat stealing or the aggravating voice!

Anyway, it wasn't very good. Almost Filler unless you count the debut of Ash's future Aipom as an official debut.
The giant Slaking was ok, but it was the Pokemon version of King Kong which is yuck. I never liked ape-like Pokemon anyway, so this was my least favorite Battle Frontier episode. 1/10
Okay, did anybody not see it coming that they were going to show May get picked up in the Slaking's hand and carried up a large tower-like structure? I saw this episode before ever discovering this site; back then every episode was news to me when it premiered in the US; and yet I instantly knew they were going to do that as soon as I read the episode's title. (I kinda' wish they'd taken a bit more time with that, though....)
Aipom was the perfect source of comic relief in this episode and I was shocked that Ash didn't catch it in the end; it was reassuring that he did catch it later, but I didn't know that yet.

Meowth looked so funny when it was taking the berries from those pokemon.... Looks like Aipom is coming with the three
I would've liked to see Primeape, Mankey and Aipom instead of Slaking and Vigoroth. That way all three Pokemon are true ape Pokemon. Vigoroth and Slaking are based more off Sloths than Monkeys.
Aipom left Ash some fruit and a flower with his hat. Awwwwwwww! What a sweet Pokemon!
Claimed by me!
This episode was ok... It was interesting to find out that the giant Slaking wasn't even a Slaking, it was just a TR Robot. It was great to see Aipom in this episode. Aipom was definitely a troublemaker, stealing Ash's hat. It was cool to see a King-Kong reference where May was taken up the tower-like thing. It was a bit disappointing to find out that it wasn't a Giant Slaking, but just a Robot for TR.
