    I mean, like, to me Sinnoh for some reason gives me a vibe of a colder region then the others. It's just the way the enviorment looks or something...kinda hard to explain.
    That's because Sinnoh is located north in the Pokemon world. All the Pine trees also probably gave you the idea that it is a cold region.

    It looked like Hikari was explaining something to Ash/Brock/Meowth at one point but I'm not sure if she came up with the idea of how to stop Steelix or not.
    She did indeed. She remembered about the shovels and figured if they lured it into falling over the edge like that, it'd be KOed and they'd have a chance to get the shovels out.

    I love how Shimura toned down with the HYPER GIGA STOCK FOOTAGE BEAM!

    Also, this episode was made because the Bidoof Empire forced the writers to make it. And gotta love the 'ONLY-USED-IN-THREE-FRICKEN-EPIS' Spurt playing in the background.

    I wasn't expecting much from this, despite it staring the best early route mammal, but it proved to be a wholesomely entertaining outing. Maybe it's due to the fact that, for once, the protagonists didn't just seem to want to help out of the goodness of their hearts. They had to help out the Bippa for their own benefit too. I guess the fact that they all had a common goal was what made this stand out from the usual filler stuff~
    There were a lot of interesting animation & musical combinations that worked incredibly well this time around, and it helped make the entire ordeal seem all the more desperate and intense.
    And I like episodes where Meowth plays a part in coming to the aid of those in need, reluctant or not.

    I know the Steelix was only destroying/terrorising stuff because of the shovels causing it pain, but it still came across as a total prick. I don't really have any reason for feeling that way...it's just one of those 'I just did' situations I suppose.

    Also, Shimura is really improving as of late. OK, her drawing style is, more often than not, bland as hell, but the animation itself has been really quite slick during certain moments. Muku.BIRD's whole scene, for example, was handled rather well, especially when it used Aerial Ace. Hopefully she can keep it up~

    That Steelix was a prick.

    It must be discrimatory against mentally retarded people too, since it had no qualms at hitting a handicapped bird with it's tail.

    Meh, they remind me of lemmings.

    Anyway, it probably would've been much neater if we saw Bibarel in action.

    WE HAVE TO GET THOSE SHOVELS OUT!

    The way Brock said that in the preview for the dub...was...simply flowing with dramatic action.

    This episode was pretty good. It was good to see a Bidoof which was pretty cool. The head Bidoof sounded weird compared to the other Bidoof. It was pretty funny when James mentioned that Steelix was gone, but was right in front of them. I found it odd that Steelix went on a rampage just cuz it had a few shovels in his head. IMO, this was one of the few episodes that showed how smart Dawn is (not that I’m saying that she isn’t) when she said to lure Steelix into the pit. It was hilarious when Dawn suggested that Meowth be the decoy for luring Steelix.

    Bidoof was just the cutest thing I have ever seen.

    Staravia is brain-damaged and still got the shovel out with it's head. I guess the brain-damage doesn't aware the bird of its condition.

    The lost Bidoof definitely had one of the cutest dub voices ever, though they probably just did the Bidoof leader and heightened its pitch at varying levels for the rest of the clan.

    Now, WHERE'S OUR RATTATA EPISODE, DAMMIT?!

    I like the fact that they mentioned aspirin in a kids show, twice no less. I found it odd how Dawn said that Steelix was ALWAYS weak to water when it isn't, maybe they mistook that Steel type attacks are not very effective against water types. Or they didn't want to say Steelix could drown or something, or maybe I'm crazy.

    OBJECTION!

    Water is neutral against Steel. Steelix is Steel/Ground, thus weak to Bubblebeam.

    Meh!

    That's all I've got to say about this episode because it reminded me too much of the episode in Hoenn All Torkoal, No Play with a piss'd off Steelix.

    But one cute thing I have to comment on was the Bidoof. They just reminded me of watching The Wizard of Oz. The Bidoof voices reminded me of the munchkins!

    This episode was pretty good. Seeing the gender differences between the Bidoofs was interesting. And there were several funny parts - like Meowth being suggested as the 'bait'.
    Just wondering... Do wild Steelixs exist in the games? Sure, this is anime, so it can be different from the games, but I didn't hear about any wild Steelix so far...

    Off topic: Look in Iron Island or Victory Road in DP for wild Steelix's.

    On topic: I laughed so hard when Staravia got hit by the shovel, I started choking. XD

    Oh, my mistake! Thanks for the correction.

    And Steelix can be found in the wild on D/P

    A really good episode, plenty of pokémon and the Bidoof were great, I loved how they each had an individual voice, rather than sounding so similar, especially the 'chief' Bidoof, who sounded tougher than the rest.

    The things that I think would have made this better would have been:

    A. The 'chief' being a Bibarel, I dunno, I just think it would have made for a more interesting episode

    B. Brock capturing the Bidoof he helped, I dunno why, I just think something like a Bidoof would have suited him to a tee, even with Croagunk quite fresh under his belt

    Again, enjoyable, nice to see a Johto pokémon making a return, especially one with such a bad-ass attitude as Steelix.

    Well prior to the 4th generation, there were no wild Steelix in the games. But in DP there are wild Steelix in that Iron Island place and Victory Road.

    The episode was alright, but the cute Bidoof made up for it
