    I love Croagunk. It's one of two reasons they need to do another "translated Pokemon" episode like "Island of the Giant Pokemon"- Croagunk and Wobbuffet. We need to know what those two are saying, just once!

    Rather humourous debut for the awesomeness of Croagunk. The Steel-Poison thing was a little awkward though.

    James really does like his bottlecaps though...

    So I'm in the midst of my finals yet somehow still find a way to watch older episodes of Pokemon. Talk about dedication! Or perhaps the lack thereof. I'm honestly not sure myself.

    Now this is a much better capture episode, mainly because it does not even feel like one. Seriously, Greggle's like of Takeshi at the end comes out of the blue randomly, while we get some highly amusing action in the rest of the episode. Sure, I was as sick of Scizor as anybody (though it hasn't been in any big role since), and the COTD design was a tad freaky, but the TR scheme here is one of the better ones, and seeing them battle competently is always a treat, even if it's not either their own Pokemon. Greggle has not been much of a battling Pokemon since this, but the fights it does get here are very good.

    This episode has some other amusing moments, such as the whole Nyasu/Greggle sequence at the beginning or the birth of Greggle being a better Takeshi beater than Kasumi or Masato could ever dream of being. Speaking of Takeshi and Greggle, that does mark my main gripe with this episode - there is basically no interaction between the two up to the capture, meaning that not only does Takeshi not get any focus in his own capture episode, but it does not make a whole lot of sense. On the other hand, Greggle continues to be one of the most entertaining Pokemon on the team today, generally in unusual or creepy ways. Far better episode than the Naetle one.

    B+

    It was odd that Croagunk was able to hold its own at all against Scizor. Poison-type attacks have zero affect on Steel-types in the games, but apparently that isn't the case in the Anime.

    I liked Croagunk's debut episode, if only for the fighting parts. Fighting for Team Rocket in a fake Gym? Classic Sinnoh region stuff going on there. But I was surprised to see it join Brock's team, since Brock rarely gets any Pokemon with personality so this was a surprising episode. Croagunk is so creepy though, is that a good thing? 8/10.

    It was great to see Brock's connection with Croagunk, it was cool.
    And i loved how Jessie maked the battle vs Ash like a gym battle...it was funny.

    I liked this episode and it was good Brock got a new Pok&#233;mon, especially one to pull him away like Max and Misty did when Brock got attracted by girls.

    I think it was a good episode, but why did Jessie had dress that looks similar to her Seviper, and uses her Dustox in battle?

    YAY! for the Marowak, Sandslash, and Scizor appearances! Croagunk is a funny pokemon and I'm glad Brock caught him. I wonder if Minnie ever returned all those pokemon to their trainers.

    Really? You were glad about Scizor? It appears quite often though:

    -In a Johto episode
    -At the Johto League
    -In a Kanto BF Filler

    As for Croagunk, am I the only person who thinks they gave it to Brock to replace Misty and Max's ear-pulling?

    Yes, simply because I like Scizor and it looks so cool when battling.

    Of course they did but it's also got it's own quriky personality which makes it funny. And it fits quite well with Brock.

    Not a bad episode, it was interesting that Ash was having a hard time against Ash. But I am not really a fan of Croagunk, especially after joining Brock (After the Lucy episode I got sick of Max pulling at Brock's ear and Crogunk using Poison Jab, if he wants to flirt with a woman then that's his choice. A few times was necessary like doing a contest, and it make sense in a way for Misty to pull the ear but not a eight year old kid or a Pokemon that could be abandoned left to rot in the pokeball forever, Brock lets those two control him way too much).

    However it was funny when Croagunk was stalking Meowth, the Pokemon is a bit creepy though too.

    In this episode, Brock captures the most awesome frog in pokemon history. Croagunk is the Misty/Max of the fourth gen. But Poisen Jab is a lot funnier than someone grabbing Brock's ear. Hehe this episode had a lot of fun stuff. TR's fake gym, Jame's bottle caps, James being overly defensive about his bottle caps, Croagunk the awesomely creepy frog. I liked this episode.

    - Attn: Japanese animators. You don't have to worry about 4Kids pointlessly painting away the gold borders of James' trading cards anymore.
    - Intro starts 3:38 through the episode. Most episodes take less than a minute. Title screen doesn't start until 5:05. New record?
    - Filler girl is disappointingly unhot. Her eyes are kinda creepy, also.
    - For TR's limited scam mentality, this actually isn't horrible.
    - I can't believe James isn't opposed to the idea of his bottlecaps being used as badges.
    - LMAO I love James' raging outbursts.
    - Brock got *****-slapped!
    - Filler girl phails at using Scizor.
    - Fight between two sadistic Pokemon that never stop smiling. Joy.
    - They've cycled through all the DP battle themes already this episode, so now they're going back to Kanto themes. Come on, just give us the Galaxy battle remix already.
    - Goddamn lamest CG ever.
    - Soonansu sounds like he swallowed helium.
    - I love how Brock's capture episodes don't actually have him do jack in them.
    - Priceless ending.
    If that's the Japanese name for Sandslash, than yes he does. I expected it's voice to sound a little deeper than that.

    And so starts a new running gag to keep Brock from flirting with every pretty girl he sees: The Poison Jab.

    This episode was ok... It was cool to see Croagunk for the 1st time. I'm glad Croagunk chose Brock, they go very well together. It was cool to see Poison Jab for the 1st time. Croagunk's Poison Jab to stop Brock from going love crazy is really funny to see. The fake Gym looked very bizarre... It was funny to see Jessie keep yelling at James and forcing him to wait til Croagunk revives to say anything, and let the battle continue.

    40/100

    Croagunk is a perfect example of a joke gone way too far.

    Team Rocket with a gym was funny and a good idea XD. Also Brock catches Croagunk and gets poison jabbed near the end of the episode for the 1st time XD.
    I give this episode a 9/10.

    I had no idea anyone was going to keep croagunk...my favorite part was near the end, where meowth breaks the fourth wall

    In this episode, TR opens an unofficial gym. A wild Croagunk follows Mewoth to the Gym and Jessie decides to use it in the gym.
    Meanwhile, Ash, Dawn and Brock sees a Scizor, who belongs to a trainer named Minnie. Minnie was cute, so Brock tries to flirt with her.
    Later Minnie tells the gang about a new gym called "Powerzone Gym".
    After they arrive at the gym, Minnie battles the "Powerzone Princess" AKA jessie. Minnie chooses Scizor and Jessie chooses Croagunk. The battle was good, and Minnie managed to make Croagunk faint....but James(the referee) takes so long to make a decison. In the meantime, Croagunk wakes up and defeates Scizor with Poison Jab.
    Later, Ash is up against Jessie. Jessie sends out Croagunk and Ash sends out Aipom. Aipom manages to defeat Croagunk and this time James can't delay long enough for Croagunk to get up.
    In the next battle, Jessie chooses Ash's Pikachu to battle her Dustox. when Pikachu comes to the battlefield, Team Rocket grabs it and tries to get away in their Mewoth balloon. Ash's Starly rescues Pikachu and he blasts off Team Rocket in one Thunderbolt.
    Later, Brock tries to impress Minnie again, but then he notices Croagunk. After realizing that the Croagunk is wild, Brock asks it to come along with him and Croagunk accepts. Brock captures it in a Pokéball and resumes his flirting with Minnie. When Brock takes Minnie's hand in his, Croagunk comes out of it's Pokéball and hits Brock with Poison Jab....thus starting the funny running gag of the DP series. It's funny when Croagunk was dragging Brock at the end.
    It's interesting that After Misty and Max, Croagunk is the one who stops Brock from flirting with girls, and it does the job in a very painful way. Overall, this episode was entertaining and I enjoyed watching it.

    It is hilarious to see the nise gym created by the Rocket Dan and they use bottle caps for the gym badge. Rocket did have a chance to own a Gureggru but they just let go which I think they should not. Finally Takeshi got this one and I love Gureggru stabbed Takeshi when he flirts with a woman.
