Who was the VA for Cheryl?
Overall not a bad episode. Croagunk "trying" to jab Brock but having it taken away by Cheryl who completely ignores Brock and uses that saying to "avoid" him(I don't mean that literally, but you get the idea). Why did this episode remind me so much of "Problem with Paras", having Team Rocket battling it to make it evolve, though there it was to boost confidence.
Here's what confused me: Burmy uses that thing on its head to "fling" Wobbuffet once Ash and co. arrive. Why couldn't it have done this in the first place when battling it originally?
Anyhow, not bad.
"I'm not really here that much, if at all. I've moved on, to a different site."
"But, it's been fun. I'll come back every so often, but for the most part, I won't post much."
Is talking normally such a hard thing to accomplish when it comes to PUSA's version of team rocket?
Just because we're in America does not mean we constantly need outdated slang from whenever they think is cool >_>
and whoever told these people to use puns every 5 seconds (once again with TR) needs to be slapped.

Oh God, Cheryl, Sinnoh's answer to Marina (the Raikou episodes). I've been trying to block out the memory of that character's voice since the three-parter aired. Needless to say I really hated the Eterna Forest three-parter (apart from Gardenia). The burma story was cute, and I LOL'd at the part when burmy lost its leaves and quickly gathered them back up, but Cheryl really ruins this episode. And I like her so much in the games.

My Shinies: NEW!! 2/6
Burmy was obviously voiced by Ash's VA. OMG I had a nice laugh watching that XD;
I don't recall seeing that... completely revolting... Boss Scenario in the dub. I hope they cut it... x_x; The pictures absolutely terrify me beyond any level that words can express.
lord freeza i really need to use the space skype
Alright episode. Burmy vs. Wobbuffet was funny, seriously, what did they expect? And Team Rocket spent all that effort feeding and trying to train Burmy only to get pummeled in the end. Shame Wormadam didn't get much focus, but oh well.
Its dirty!!!!! lol

Burmy was just a repeat of Paras from Kanto
Paras wasn't stripped naked several times though.
Call me shallow, but I like Momi a lot for her looks, not her personality. While I'm glad they gave a game partner a full three episodes, she is hardly an interesting character. That said, she ranks on the upper tier of Pokemon girls in terms of looks. In her debut, of course, she appears as a green-haired stick figure courtesy of Ms. Kinoshita. If that weren't enough to repulse me, they just had to rehash "The Problem With Paras", which is a candidate for the most horrid episode of the first season. Things like Minomutchi's indecent exposure, the Sakaki fantasy, and the fact that Garmeil is a pretty cool Pokemon save it from being as bad, but it's still bad.
Minomadam is the real victim here. We see its various forms out of their Pokeball for a split second and then never again in Momi's three episodes. Since then, its rock form has gotten a brief appeal under Ulala and nothing else. The entire attempted method for evolving Minomutchi is incredibly boring, using every element that made the Paras outing so dreadful (even recycling Nyasu's involvement). There were a few comical moments sprinkled throughout, but Momi is overall fortunate that the writers gave her an additional two episodes (Mira, who also gets a mediocre episode, is not as lucky).
Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
Re-watching this episode a few days after seeing HP & tHPP made me realise that Cheryl strongly reminds me of Luna Lovegood, due to her voice and some of the things she keeps on saying.
Something which only made me enjoy this episode so much more the second time around.
Hmm I liked it. Cheryl had an interesting debut episode and she got her own mini-arc; something I wasn't expecting for her character at all. I didn't like that Burmy and it's evolutions appeared in this one though. Sinnoh seems to have debuted many Pokemon at the same time and that made some of the later episodes lag due to a lack of new Pokemon to showcase. Fun Eterna Forest episode nonetheless. 7/10.

Cheryl was a great trainer. i loved to see her Burmy evolving.
And TR was very mean, but the friends stop them quickly.

This reminded me A LOT of the old Paras episode from Kanto, it was almost exactly the same. Cheryl was depicted well and was pretty close to her game character. This episode was OK, nothing special.
I don't see the Boss fantasy that disturbing, although a bit weird (Especially if he is actually naked, takes notes that there is no shirt anywhere on his arm).
Anyways it was a so and so episode, although I don't think it should have gone on for three episodes (The part that made it interesting was Gardenia, wish she had been in all three, including when they found the Amber Castle).
Definitely like the Paras episode except for Burmy having no leaves on it. It was nice that evolved aleast.
Alas! Team Rocket did not get any reward after they trained Burmy so well
