    Let's see here. In every post I've seen of yours, you in one way or another slide in a comment about how crappy the pokemon anime is.

    This episode was, again, not as crappy as most Pokemon episodes
    The guy is an *** and is keeping this series from being stale
    I LOL at anyone bothering to complain about the Pokemon anime. It's like people don't realize that it's the same generic, formulaic plot just about every single episode, with a broader, just as...
    I see nothing from you but negitivity and talking about how horrible the anime is.

    Maybe your fanboyness is getting in the way, but you still seem to be forgetting where we are. This is an EPISODE discussion for the NEW series. None of those comments were slamming this new DP series. So get over the fact that YES, all the past seasons ended up being crap, and realize that have a little bit of hope for this one.

    Maybe you're blind, but I seem to recall my posts being about

    -Things I like so far about DP
    -Shinji (who rocks)
    -Pocchama (who rocks)

    I don't want this series to become bland like every other anime with the word Pokemon in its title. Am i allowed to express my opinion on that matter? Yes. So, once again, STFU and move on with you life. Seriously.

    This episode was literally three or four different episodes crammed into one. Bah, beats a boring episode about Pikachu being lost followed by a boring episode about Mukkuru, I suppose.

    How many summer cottages and butlers does James have, anyways? I mean seriously. And was this the first time Pikachu was ever scanned by a Pokedex in the show? I don't recall it happening previously, though my memory may be fuzzy.

    Minomucchi porn is going to become a new internet craze. I guarantee it. Just you watch.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Wow, not bad, not bad at all. Despite the fact that i can barely understand a word they're saying(not a bad thing really, it helps to know how this show functions, then it's just a matter of watching out for certain clues.). In her first battle she looked so confident on thinking of catching... um... whatever that was(forget its name). Hmm, 1 hit and bang, owned. Guess those Ariados really did a number on the little guy. Though it was kinda funny seeing that rabbit pokemon randomly jump at Hikari then continuing on its merry way.

    Cool pokedex by the way. It's neat how it has a green bar of randomly passing data on the left side of the bottom screen. Also, why is it that after being beat by that Mimiroppu(i think that's what it's called), it suddenly feels compelled to beat up a Minomucci. Boy, Hikari sure is clueless, she starts to talk to Pocchama, then Pocchama starts gesturing her to try and capture the Minomucci. Oh wait, i just realised(thinks back to Ash's days), this is exactly like when Ash tried to capture the Weedle and failed. Instead, it was Hikari being clueless and not some random Samurai guy.

    OMFG, did Pikachu just get scanned?!?!? I think this is the first time this has ever happened. I forget if Ash ever did scan it in the first episode.

    Oh god, her bike got fried. And in the most original way possible. Is it just me, or does every bike the main girl owns feels compelled to be there when Pikachu uses its electric attack. I mean, it was pure dumb luck that May's bike that burned. This time, Pocchama got zapped, which zapped the bike. God, this just keeps getting better and better. LOL, then Pikachu scratches his head, and without even thinking, Pikachu could in fact by saying this: Not again, this is getting repettive. If Pikachu could talk, I wonder if it would mention this particular situation to Ash?

    Also, i just realized something. When Hikari throws the pokeball at Pikachu, it doesnt work. So in that Johto episode with the Bellsprout tower, when the kid throws the pokeball, even if the ball did hit Pikachu, it wouldnt have worked.

    Oh, god, this is the second time Meowth gets scanned, not only that, but i dont even think Hikari is shocked that it can talk. Oh wow, this is probably the first time Team Rocket says their motto within 6 minutes of the show, usually its about 12-15 minutes in. Boy, even after they recite their motto, Hikari is clueless as to who they are. Give it up Team Rocket, nobody knows about you until you continuesly run into them. Wow, Team Rocket really blasts off early. It's as if the writers were saying: "I know, lets have Team Rocket appear super early, so that we can continue the whole episode without further interuption".

    What exactly were Pocchama and Hikari fighting for?

    Also, since when does he receive a starter from any of the professors? Talk about breaking the mold(nevermind, he doesnt. If he had, we wouldve seen it when Ash battled that Mukkuru).

    Oh, strange. When James enters the mansion, is that the music fromt the eighth pokemon movie im hearing? Oh goody, his bottle cap collection. Just how much has he collected... Oh great, It's Kanto and Johto all over again. Wow, how ironic that Masukippa happens to be the same size as Victrebel, lol.

    Oh, speaking of breaking the mold, seams like Brock finally succeded! Oops, maybe not. God, Brock, always ask a girl if she has a boyfriend. Close, but no cigar.

    WTF? We never saw Ash getting his pokedex?!?! Oh wait, he visited the professor, so... yeah, that solves that.

    Funniest capture ever! Ouch, wonder if it will forgive Ash for doing that?

    Something tells me that this is shaping up to be the best series we've ever had! Maybe the writers are actually thinking for once. Though i find that Hikari's personnality is closer to Ash than May in many ways.

    I don't understand Japanese, is that house property of James?, it was confusing, and why he has another pkmn abandoned >_>, in a box!!!.

    Of course i don't know why pocchama and Hikari were fighting for,(Pocchama pecks hikari, lol), they are fun with the scars later.And Pocchama with that bandage-cross thing in the head.

    About the Episode:

    Hikari's first capture attemps - In the first case there was nothing to do, the rabbit was too fast for the inexpert Pocchama. The second was quite funny, Hikari already would have his first capture but she ruined it. I like much the relation between pocchama and Hikari.

    The bike factor - Pikachu did it once again. The peculiar thing is that it seems he noticed the meaning of this (Pikachu: *sigh* So, we'll travel together huh?).

    Massukipa - I like that when this Pokemon in special bites James, he is happy. Good change.

    Lola la trailera (the trailer girl) - This is a good way from the girls to reject Takeshi: "I already have someone". When I saw the images I thought that the girl would have gone away by a work order and that she would return in other episodes, becoming the pair in potence of Takeshi. Now I know, that this is impossible.

    Mukkuru - It seems to be that Mukkuru will be much more similar to Pidgeotto than to Swellow, I like how Aipom fought.

    Pocchama and Hikari's scenes involving them looking confident with their arms, that was so cute <3

    And was this the first time Pikachu was ever scanned by a Pokedex in the show? I don't recall it happening previously, though my memory may be fuzzy.
    First time for Pikachu, second for Meowth, unless my mind is fuzzing but I doubt it.

    THE BIKE WAS DESTROYED, NOOOOOO! O____O!

    James catching the Venus Flytrap was a given really, I just didn't see it thise early on in D/P Saga. But is it me or do they seem to have some weird thing with only giving James Pokemon he's wanted or seen as a kid in one of his houses? Chimecho, this new D/P Pokemon and Manene...I hope his next capture is a real battle capture. Same for Jessie too.

    I wonder if Jessie and James will get a revamp like when they went to AG, everyone except Wobb went...

    Is it me or is Brock showing up totally randomly and out of place? :/

    The New Pokedexs rock, they really do o.O!

    And Ash catching the common bird of the region, lol traditions rock.

    I wonder if the "rules of the road" are in-place in the Pocket Monsters anime universe. If so, Takeshi lucked out with the busty, female truck driver.

    Apart from that, this episode was fairly routine as far as missing Pikachu episodes go. It's good to see that Hikari played a large role in saving and protecting Pikachu, however. The Mukkuru capture added another important highlight, making this a rather worthwhile episode.

    Hikari's talkative personality and squeaky, girly voice are getting on my nerves >.<

    I find it slightly odd that Kojirou's family has a house in Shinou :/ Even if they're rich, why bother to build a house in a faraway region?
    But it's nice to see that Kojirou's still scared of his fiancée It makes him more human, IMO.

    Man, Takeshi sure showed up completely out of nowhere. I would have preferred if he stayed in Hoenn (or went back to Kanto or whatever) and the D/P rival teamed up with Satoshi and Hikari instead of him.

    I really, really like that trailer girl. Hope that she'll come back and not just drive away from the anime for ever.

    Ohhh, Shinji is one cool character! A good replacement for Shigeru indeed.

    Overall, a good episode with a lot of great Rocket-Dan moments. I hope that next episode will be filled with a lot of Satoshi V.S Shinji action!

    That's another bit of evidence about how Hikari knows more about Pokemon and how things work than either Ash or May did when they started out. When the Pokeball capture didn't work, she knew that meant that Pikachu already had a trainer.
    Also, since when does he receive a starter from any of the professors? Talk about breaking the mold(nevermind, he doesnt. If he had, we wouldve seen it when Ash battled that Mukkuru).
    Ash going to Nanakamado's lab had nothing to do with a starter. Remember how Aipom caught up with Ash on its own? When Ash was on the phone with Professor Oak on the ship, Oak told him that he would send Aipom's Pokeball to his friend Professor Nanakamado's lab, and Ash could pick it up there.

    (Just guessing on the friend thing...the two Profs clearly know each other, although I couldn't figure out exactly what the connection is. Someone who knows more Japanese should be able to tell though.)

    That song that played when Ash caught Mukkuru, it didn't sound like any BGM from the past, nor any battle music from DP.

    So, maybe that was an instrumental of the Opening? It sure sounded like one.

    Swellow would adamantly disagree with that. It was the most well-showcased of all of Ash's birds, getting a substantial amount of interaction in non-battles and its own funny scenes.

    Its personality wasn't one that screamed its obviousness at you, but was simply a tough, never-say-die, eager-to-learn and please its master type. The Pokemopolis website defined it in more colorful terms as like an angry, drunk, scotsman.

    Wrong. He caught it so it could look for Pikachu from the air. I think he even said as much.

    *sighs*...Well nothing out of the ordinary in this episode!

    -Ash catches Mukkuru (and this being the fourth)
    1.) Pidgeotto
    2.) Noctowl
    3.) Taillow
    4.) Mukkuru


    And of course the third bike is destroyed and by Pikachu...Boy oh boy, very original. Well one thing I would like to comment on was when Hikari first saw Team Rocket, I felt something I haven't felt in over 10 years...That being, I was actually threatened by them...the feeling lasted for about five seconds.

    I mentioned this fact at Pokémopolis. This is the VERY first time the 'Chu has been Dexed.

    As for Meowth, Ash scanned him in Ralts' episode when he slipped up doing Kirlia. Talk about smart!XD

    This isn't new that starting trainers have alittle difficulty with their pokemon. But that's cool that Hikari found Pikachu first.

    Well this is yet another episode that I thoroughly enjoyed. Well, these things made me laugh:

    - How Hikari failed at battling Mimioru and then it jumped on her head. Then she tried to regain her and Pocchama's spirits by telling it that they'll be okay.
    - How Hikari failed to capture Minomucchi in time because she was too excited, praising Pocchama (wow, that thing could sure pick up leaves...).
    - The look on Pocchama's face is hilarious. :D
    - Oh my...
    - ...It's been along time since I found Takeshi funny...
    - Heh, Rumika reference! The look on Kojirou's face is priceless.
    - Mukkuru and Aimpom got in a slap fight and Satoshi caught it. :0
    - When Rocket Gang's Pokemon (including Nyarth) first appear in the episode, surrounding Pikachu, they gave me a strange yet familiar vibe of some sort...

    Agreed. XD

    Lastly, Shinji already seems badass in this episode. The split screen reinforces it. XD

    EDIT: I remember a while back, where I said if Pikachu destroys another bike, I'd jump off a building. Well, screw it. :P

    I forgot to mention something about Ash's Mukkuru capture that I don't think anyone's brought up yet: When Ash caught it, he started to celebrate in his usual way, but then stopped, sad because it was the first time he'd ever caught a Pokemon without Pikachu being there.

    That would seem 100% true. I do recall that perfectly. I didn't think of that upon mention of the episode. He should have also been happy that Aipom helped him in capturing a useful pokemon (to the regard that they need a flying type since Aipom has it's limits).

    Also, even though Mukkuru was yet another flying time, it's initial capture boded much more importantance.

    -Pidgeotto was captured in a test to actually capture a pokemon.
    -Noctowl was "special". Being "shiny" with "interesting characteristics", particularly "intellect".
    -Subame was the leader of the pack, or the strongest of the pack. It was also the most battle prone, it never gave up, and it had the personality of a battling type, having Guts and whatever else.

    Also, usually a pokemon gets zukan'd BEFORE battling. No, Mukkuru fought with Aipom aggressively and Satoshi zukan'd it WHILE THE POKEMON WERE STILL FIGHTING. (more like bickering though. I forgot the terminology for that.)

    They put humour into a pokemon catch. That's rarer these days.

    Mmm I definitely like the Hikari and Pochama interaction.

    The format of the destruction of the bike was at least different. Even though the destruction was obvious, it wasn't blatantly obvious (AG 01 = VERY clear bike would get shocked), whereas the bike in this case was incorporated and was shocked along as an accident, and really fast! Also, Satoshi wasn't in the vicinity so technically no fault can be put on him for a direct accident. You can't really think of scolding when you never met the person.

    Also, Hikari provoked Pikachu. So unlike the other bike cases, she was the direct cause (even though she wasn't the overall cause), even though the bike being destroyed was the effect. This is NOT like previous bike scenarios where the cause was clearly aggravated by Satoshi. The scenario is "I tried to capture a wild Pikachu, but it was electricity which was good against water so my Pochama lost and the force of the attack destroyed my bike. Later I found out that it was another trainer's". There's no way Hikari can remotely put blame on Satoshi because he wasn't even there. Unlike other scenarios, the bike was also incorporated (whereas other cases had specific intent of mentioning it.)

    With Hikari's run ability, she doesn't seem to have travelling weaknesses like Haruka did with the inability to walk long distances. A bike was more convenient, but only for Haruka's case was it significantly more useful.

    Though, Hikari is clearly resourceful. "Oh no, we need to get to a pokemon centre!" *next scene is the pokemon centre instantly* Pikachu problem? Get it healed, contact mom on update, contact professor notifying of how things are going. They even go BACK to Masago Town to meet up with the professor again.

    And yes, Pikachu getting zukan'd was very nice. Amazing how Haruka never got close to doing that.

    Nobody mentioned how the computers were much different, either. Usually it's the old green version. It didn't even look like it had a phone attached even though it's clearly a video phone.

    Comedic episode in many ways. It felt like Kantou in those terms, but also maintaining good AG components.

    A random reason I can think of for the remote house for Kojiro is the association of a "vacation house". Shinou = far, and that doesn't seem implausible.

    I loved this episode. Specially the Bike scene. and yeah its a first time for Pikachu. What did the Pokedex said about Pikachu? also I was hoping if someone could refresh my memory and tell me when was the first time that Meowth was dexed?

    Anyway.. Funny, action, cool episode. D/P is runnin way better than AG so far.
    And I came for fun..
