    If that's what Giga Attack looks like, then I hope someone catches Leafia and teaches that attack to it.

    Also, why were people b******* about Rampard? He looked okay to me.

    Yeah it is Giga Attack...although now that I listen again, I hear "Giga Impact" so that's probably a better translation. Not sure why Serebii calls it Attack.

    Well I am glad to now know what the physicial counterpart to Hyper Beam looks like in the anime (basically a swirling energy force that turns the whole body into an armored drill of sorts), but next I want to see what it looks like if a pokemon on the ground uses it. Ash's Tauros would look great with it, indeed many pokemon would. So one wonders if this will become like Hyper Beam and be known by many stronger pokemon on the show.

    Kind of interesting/funny that the only moves the Aerodactyl seemed to use (based on the caps mind you) was Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

    But why would the attack being strange be something you didn't like about the episode?

    Overall the episode seems rather average. The first part was the highest quality because the character interaction was good and the rest was largely standard "enraged pokemon destroys things," though it was neat to see them bring out a tank in response.

    I had a feeling it was Giga Impact--it looked like a physical Hyper Beam, and Aerodactyl also learns the attack naturally in D/P(replacing Hyper Beam since that move no longer does any real damage due to crappy Special Attack--same goes for Snorlax and Slaking).

    Well, teh Pics look like this is a great ep.

    & I'm loving Hikari, she actually brought up something many people b****** about. Using other pokes. I mean, she even offered her Pochama(how sweet is that). Oh. My pearlshipping sences are tingling. RUN AWAY!

    I had a feeling that the Tatetops family wouldn't appear, as Hyota's father has one, so it'll probably be showcased there.

    Uh, offering Ash one of her Pokemon is not a sign she wants to get into his pants.

    She's just super-nice.

    That's true--Misty did the same thing when Ash went against Brock. She was just trying to be nice. Then again; even if Ash agreed, wouldn't it be illegal since he wouldn't be using his own Pokémon?

    Pochama probably wouldn't listen to him anyway; too stubborn.XD

    If the rules are like contests then you don't have to actually use your own pokemon (since your skills would still be proven by how well you command them and use strategies), most trainers (or at least most we've seen) do only use their own though as a matter of principle.

    Pochama probably wouldn't listen to him anyway; too stubborn.XD
    If their trainer orders them to obey someone else most pokemon will, provided they are commanded well (we saw what happened when Jessie was using Harley's Banette).

    Well to be fair Aerodactly wasnt exactly knocked out it didnt faint. It took Bubblebeam and Ice beam to stop Aerodactyl's hyperbeam from hitting Ash and Pikachu. Then they both used their spin combination that Hikari was teaching them and got behind Aerodactly and jump on TOP of it and brung it down. Thats perfectly fine, besides Aerodactyl was flying around continuously using hyperbeams and Giga impacts im sure the pokemon was worn out, you have to take that into account as well.

    I think stupid would've been something like Aerodactyl being at 100% health and Poochama using bubblebeam and peck to knock it out or Mimoru using ice beam and double slap to make it faint. But that didnt happen so.....

    I agree, even if Aerodactyl was worn out a bunny and a penguin can't take it down. And the spin thing was very chikdish.

    I wan't some kickass battle!

    Aerodactyl sure loved to spam out Hyper beam which got annoying after a while of seeing it.

    Oh man,...after reading your complaints about the anime for quiet a while now I really wonder WHY you still watch the whole thing anyway?

    Pokemon IS childish. it is for CHILDREN! how hard is that to understand? ^^

    what are "kickass battles" to you? Please name such a battle from the anime, because the last gym battle was pretty cool if you ask me...


    please, Kojiro...come back soon...

    What exactly happened with Kojiro?


    If there was one thing I liked about this episode, it was the music. I really loved "Satoshi's Theme," the opening part of the "Lovely Boy" instrumental, "Latios no Mote he," and the orchestral version of the D/P route 210 theme.

    I loved the battle of 'Charizard Chills' The hole episode was supberb IMo: Very Mature and dramatic.

    I'm not asking them to take out all the cute Pokemon, I just want balance. Some cute scenes, some drama and darkness. F G S, the first episode was very dramatic.

    I wouldn`t call "Charizard Chills" plot "mature", but it was a nice episode. The battle in it...mh...not so. Because the battle wasn`t the point of the episode.
    Definitely a strange example for a "kickass" battle...more an example for a character developing episode like "Cutting the Ties That Bind".

    The thing is...you act like the anime was any different a few sagas ago which is not the case. There will be dramatic moments, but ..did you really expect REAL drama in this episode? This episode was a setup for the next gym battle and it did that pretty well.

    The next episode should be kickass enough and the "dancing-dodge"move is seen without the "girly background" you seem to hate so much.

    anyway, what ws getting on my nerves...the scientist just needed to return the fossils to their pokeballs? What`s so hard about it? Why did Ash and Brock need to attack the fossils anyway if you just can simply return them to their pokeballs? Aerodactyl is a different story, but the other 2?

    I think he got banned for his "offensive" sigs. I guess someone can`t handle his humor.

    Good point.

    I just kinda figured that the "recall beam" if you will, was voluntary. The episode that comes to mind (don't throw rocks people) is the one with Misty and Gyarados. I can't remember the title, but it was one of the Chronicles. She kept trying to recall it only to have Gyarados shrug off the attempt. And an even more watered down example is how Wobuffet comes out at will. I thought a Pokeball was just a little storage chamber with a little bed to sleep in, not a jail.

    Looks like a great episode. TR actually did something...even however slight, it did set off the events for the rest of the episode. Stealing that huge cloning machine...awesome.

    Even more awesome, Hyota and the creepy doctor got some great spotlight time.
