Yes, it did look like an extaned Pikacus Vacation. I pretty much liked the ep, it had some very funny moments, you got to see that Piplup is concidered to be a joint leader instead of being a baby (which was the status of Torchic pretty much until he evolved). TR was however more or less useless, the did nothing to further the plot, I think they could have skipped them out.
The part in the store was quite funny, Ash and Dawn was fun and Brock not having anyone stopping him from flirting was hilarious.
Around 7/10 with some 7,5 moments.

It's kinda funny that PUSA would mention nightclubs in a kid's shows despite certain celebrity mess ups that occur in them.

Yeah, I was all, "What? They actually got the guts to mention nightclubs?! Bravo."
Well, at least not all dub lines are "for kiddies only" material.
After Brock mentioned the night club, Ash and Dawn said it would be fun! I can't believed they said that! I was amazed!!

This episode wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, I actually liked it.
The Episode was cute:
-Pokemon having fun
-and a magic Piplup.
i actually liked this episode.Pachirisu with the balloons was just so cute and i also liked the bit when bunery, happinny and aipom went into the dresser to try dresses on that was pretty cute. The bit in the marc was funny as well with Brock flirting and notcing that Crogonk wasnt there so he carried on flirung too. Pplup with the magic set again was pretty cute too ^-^. Altogether a pretty cute episode not really forcusing on anything but nice to see the pokemons relationship between each other
Since I haven't seen much Pokemon between Johto and Sinnoh, I was surprised when Aipom was revealed as being female. And yes, you gotta love the floating Parchisu and the pokeband they had. And Crogunk having a staring contest with itself was funny as well.

When I asked Jesus how much he loved me, he said "This much."
Then he stretched out his arms...and died for me.
Click so they hatch and grow:
The title of the episode was kind of ridiculous. American kids will think the episode was a parody of the first episode of Mickey Mouse: "Steamboat Willy" except they replaced the "y" with the "ies."
That was kind of the point.
Since this episode involves hijinx on a steamboat, plus a scare as it almost crashes.
Good episode. PUSA seems to have put to rest the question of Aipom's gender, as well as Buneary's. And to a lesser extent, Pikachu's could be almost confirmed. I doubt Japan intended this.

We may never know Pikachu's true gender until the writers decide to......
It's not PUSA's place to decide the gender of the gang's pokemon because they didn't create the show. They're merely translators.
And, IIRC, the Japanese version of this episode doesn't mention any genders at all.

Yeah I had no problem with Dawn saying "girls", since it's obvious anyway.

Not everything has to be a confirmation via lines. Having them in dresses is more than a confirmation even if the characters doesn't mention they are girls.
Buneary wore flowers on the ears. Is that the hallmark of a guy? Methinks not. Usually it's the girls who have anything to do with flowers. I know that's gender stereotyping, but from what we've seen in the show so far... there's plenty of visual confirmation about that. I haven't seen a male Pokémon give a hoot about flowers anyway.
Sudowoodo doesn't appear much but when it does it's awesome. I loved it in this episode.
Super cute episode i liked it A LOT =D This was the one episode i thought pachirisu was cute and not a total pain in the neck.
You had way too many outside images and your signature was overstacking, so everything was erased. Please read the signature rules.
Honestly,I liked and hated the episode.I can't really explain anything about that feeling,so let me just post my pluses and deltas about the episode.
That Brock mentioned the steamboat having a nightclub.Made me hope Dawn would get herself into a predicament
The fact that the Pokemon showed they know how to do more than just battle.
Also the fact the Pokemon showed that animals can also wear clothing.
It showed what people in a PokeMart is like in the anime.
Team Rocket appeared.This was one of the few episodes I WANTED them to appear in.
That a person like the captain of that steamboat actually helped save the Pokemon.You wouldn't expect that,would you?
But they still all got the acclaim.
That Brock mentioned the steamboat having a nightclub.Just plain incorrect.
Ash and Dawn said it would be fun.Don't get your hopes up too high,Dawn!
The Pokemon seemed to know a little TOO much.
But they still couldn't tell that Team Rocket was in disguise.
The panty shot.There has been one on Drake & Josh,but it's just too inappropriate.
