If it did work then Pikachu would have probably evolved into a yellow Raichu similar to the Red Gyarados in Johto and TR would be hated even more than they ever have as they would have sunk to their lowest. Forcing a pokemon to evolve is not usually their style and its a good in the machine and forced him to evolve in revenge.

This episode wasn't too bad really, I liked seeing the World's Strongest Magikarp and Feebas, in the anime you could probably make anything very strong if you train it hard enough (Maybe that's why Paul is always training his Pokemon so much and so hard).
Would have been interesting to see that machine work but it's probably a good thing it didn't. James knew a couple times that the Magikarp salesman was trying to scam him, this was not one of them. Although there is one time he was actually telling the truth with that Sweet Scent Weepinbell in that Elekid episode near the end of Johto.
Cliva- I don't know about that, TR has done some very low stuff yet people still love them, unless you mean in the anime which where they are already hated anyway.
Claims Amber Benson as Bishie

As of April 18th, 2015, I met, hugged, took a selfie and a video with Amber Benson. This signature stands to the days where I wished for it, and that dream became reality.

I didn't like this episode. I thought the Magikarp man will do something, but he almost did nothing. It was a nice combination with a Team Rocket episode & Ash/Dawn episode, though.

How can a magikarp be that powerful even if it was raised very well. It makes no sense

I've been rewatching the episodes all the way from Kanto and I have just watched this episode again now and have noticed that this is Ash's first time properly seeing a Feebas.

Feebas!!!! Milotic!!!! Love the Pokemon

This episode was ok... It was cool to see Feebas again. It was great to see trainers who believed in training Magikarp and Feebas to their full potential instead of evolving to make them stronger. Magikarp and Feebas are very strong in this episode. I figured that "evolution machine" wasn't going to work, especially when TR kept trying to force Pikachu to evolve into Raichu.

In the anime, it can.

I really enjoyed seeing the Magikarp Salesman again here, especially since he tried to trick Team Rocket again; he's so crafty. I also liked the idea of the B-Button League, although I wish that Feebas had gotten way more attention and not just Magikarp. Team Rocket trying and failing to evolve Magikarp with their machine was also humorous.

TR's Mechabot actually looked like a transformer.
You know, I don't know what I expected it to look like.
That building where the Magikarp salesman said the evolution machine came from, was that The Pentagon?

I had missed the Magikarp salesman so it was nice to see him again although kind of disappointing that he successfully scammed Team rocket again. Oralie's Magikarp was so strong and I liked the whole idea of the B-Button League. ^^

So the B Button League thing was based on pressing B to stop evolution in the games?? Poor Feebas didn't get enough attention. 7/10

Lol at TR getting tricked by the Magikarp salesman dude...again. I liked how Magikarp basically swept Ash's Pikachu, too.

Poor Team Rocket got scammed again by the Magikarp con man, but seeing Meowth with the Wii remote gadget was funny and so was the robot.

Piplup got absolutely slayed in this episode, by a Magikarp of all things. And Ash could have easily told Pikachu to use Thunderbolt on the water and the match would have been over. :x
