    People were expecting this to be a filler, it was better than that. It's not every day you see two members of Team Rocket decide to HELP with the Pokemon du jour.

    The stop-and-start motto performance was funny too.

    I've only seen the pics so far, and the episode looks pretty funny.

    What happened with the Electrike guy and Staravia at the start?

    While relaxing, the gang was suddenly attacked by an upset Electrike who was running blindly at them and firing off random Thunder attacks. Ash got hit by one of them. Staravia just happened to be right next to him. Then the breeder guy caught up to Electrike, apologized, introduced himself, and explained what was going on.

    Hahahahaha. Ash sure gets electrocuted a lot in this episode.

    James and Meowth decided to help Electrike themselves while Jessie is left as the usual villain to try and steal it. That break the chain.

    Say, what attacks did Electrike used again? I can't tell from the screenshots.

    While I still don't see where the idea of showcasing a random Hoenn Pokemon came from, I was honestly expecting this episode to be worse. While TR can be, admittedly, obnoxious at times, it's moments like these that make me glad they're still on the show. Some of the greatest moments come from times when the main gang and the Rockets work together. And that motto was damn funny, especially with the theme music suddenly winding down each time James spoke. Speaking of music, wasn't that a Movie 9 track that played after Electrike evolved? About time.

    Maybe SHOCK WAVE, or DISCHARGE.

    This episode proves one thing...

    The gang shops at Target.

    What happened with the Electrike guy and Staravia at the start?
    My Japanese is a little rusty, but I believe Yuusuke (the filler dude) was talking about how awesome Staravia was, and wanted to make out with it on the spot.

    But I could be wrong.

    Most fashionable jackets ever. Or to be more accurate...dem jackets be stylin', yo!

    I've only had the chance to look through pics of this ep so far, but...is it just me, or did Electrike look a tad off in this episode? Maybe I'm just not used to seeing it in the anime since it had all of half an episode to itself in Houen, give or take a few fifths of an ep.

    TR(well, the male portion of it) deciding to help Electrike out was unexpected, but then again, James was always a softie and Meowth...is rather unpredictable. And of course, Jessie had to come in with her...pink ballerina robot?...to ruin everything.

    I really underestimated this episode. It was really good. I love how Electrike's attacks always hit Ash.

    What's next? A NEKKID BURMEE?

    No it wasn't. It was already stated which attacks they were.

    A pink robot is disturbing? Are you serious?
    Even James´ breasts weren´t disturbing...Maybe you should switch the channels more often and look what other programs offer.
    Bare breasts in commercials ,anyone?

    Meh, I'm a Gundam fan. Guess I need to expand my robot fanbase. Plus, I just got home from a trip to New York, so I didn't know better.

    Eh, this episode looks ok to me. My extreme hatred for all Hoenn pokemon is one of the reasons I will probaby hate this ep, but like ya'll said up yonder(Im trying it out), I will watch it due to TR love of being cuuurazy, and suprising us time after time.....wow, I just had a flashback while writing this about Napoleon Dynamite..

    Because they were touched by how Pikachu was helping Electrike and how it was trying so hard and stuff.

    Is it really that hard to let someone who actually saw the episode answer instead of wasting time with random guesses?

    Anyway, Yusuke's Rakurai used Charge and Thunderbolt, while the leader's used Charge and Thunder. After evolving, Yusuke's Livolt used Charge and Thunder as well.

    Poor Ash--been a while since he's been specifically shocked this many times. No wonder he was scared to be a moving bullseye(even though I bet it was rubber-coated).

    While I still don't see where the idea of showcasing a random Hoenn Pokemon came from
    I dunno either, but I'm glad they got a chance to properly showcase Electrike(you think PUSA can utilize the neat effect to its dub voice, like in the Mauville Gym episode[ultimately forgotten in the rematch since it only appeared for 30 seconds]?). OMG, Iwane made it so cute~:3

    Haven't we seen enough of the darn thunder cats? Seriously, what's the problem with having a few other-gen Pokemon mixed into the Sinnoh region? If there were ONLY Sinnoh Pokemon in the Sinnoh region, the games and anime would fail. Besides Electrike family > Shinx family any day. Why do you think they replaced the Luxio tribe in PMD:T/D with an Electrike tribe in PMD:EotS?

    This is an episode that would feel like a total waste of time if it weren't for a few wonderful character moments. I'm speaking of the human characters, as while Electrike is a cool little Pokemon that didn't get enough love in Hoenn, I don't care for its role here too much. For starters, the fact that Takeshi lifts a finger is noteworthy. For as little actual breeding as we see him do, it's nice to see him take up a mentor position in the field for once. However, Kojiro and Nyasu are the episode's highlights, and while it's not the first time we've seen them rebel against Musashi, it always marks a great TR character turn of events.

    Granted, the episode is very thin and run-of-the-mill in terms of plot. When you strip away the great character moments, you are essentially left with a Johto filler. COTD with problem, Pokemon has issues, gang helps out, TR steals Pokemon, Pokemon gathers strength and defeats TR, problem solved. Basically the standard formula complaint that people continue to use based on the occasional episode like this (in spite of the fact that this type of formula is rarer than it had been in prior sagas, you fandom brain surgeons...). And considering how the last Electrike we saw also evolved, I could have done without Manectric here. This is not a bad episode by any means, but you're better off following the character interaction rather than the story.

    WHY are they showing a Hoenn Pokémon?!
    This IS the Diamond and Pearl series isn't it?
    Why couldn't they show a new electric Pokémon like... Rotom or something?!
    Mabye they plan on taking their time with this series.
    You don't think
    there will be any
    Ruby/Sapphire remakes?
