    This episode was good. There wasn't much to say about this filler episode. It was kinda funny when Ash and James ran around with targets on the back of their jackets. It was also cool to see a Manectric again (I always thought he was one of the cooler electric types).

    I liked how every time james said his part in the motto, the music suddenly stopped.

    Yes Ash, there are people to get you.

    Manectric sounded like a muppet character.LOL.

    Well I guess I better write up a summary.


    Ash and co. are resting at a nearby lake, when a gigantic column of lightning almost hits them. They then see an Electrike charging at them. They freak out, and Ash then get zapped. The Electrike's trainer, a breeder by the way, comes up and apologizes. After introductions, the breeder (Joco, I think it was?) remarks that flying types are way better then electric types. Electrike gets sad. Joco's teacher comes. Anyway, the gang's invited to see the...the...Electric...Electric Breeding place. Basically, it seems Electric pokemon are trained here to gain control of their attacks, before being shipped off to power a power plant. Joco's teacher comes with an Electrike, and shows what true control is. There are 3 targets. The teachers Electrike uses Charge, then thunder, and the Electrike controls the thunder to go left, up, and down before hitting the target. Joco's Electrike tries, and zaps Ash. Joco remarks that his Electrikes a failure. Brock checks it, and says it's perfectly fine. Team Rocket's watching. Jessie wants to steal the Electrike. James and Meowth say

    "That Electrike's got issues!"

    Jessie wants to wait, seeing as how the twerps will train it well. Joco tries to brush Electrike....with a METAL brush....ZAP. Brock does some quick teaching to him, Faith and all that. Joco's Electrike practices again , and zaps Ash. Joco wonders what went wrong. Brock says timing and asks if Ash and Dawn would demonstrate. Pikachu succeeds, but Pachirisu zaps Ash. Pachirisu gets a poffin, and succeeds. Brock says that he thinks Electrike is stronger then a normal Electrike, so it has problems controlling it's power. It's night. Brock is making pokemon food. Joco comes in and remarks how much food he's making. Brock says that with a lot of pokemon, there needs to be a lot of food. Oitside, Pikachu is teaching Electrike. Pikachu thunderbolts a dead tree. Electrike tries, and misses (barely). Electrike get sad. Pikachu does a pep talk, and blasts another tree. James and Meowth are watching. They remark how much of a team the twerps are. Jessie gets impatient and says to steal it now. Motto!

    Listen is that the voice of twerpy gloom?

    Join our pity party, there's plenty of room.

    Bringing chaos at a breakneck pace!

    She's dashed all my hope, what a....bummer

    A rose by any other name is just as sweet!

    When everything gets worse, then of course, it gets worse

    Jessie!

    James the pain

    I can't bear to say my name

    Putting all you dogooders in their place!

    Team Rocket, sad to say.

    We're in your face!

    Ouch.

    James and Meowth restrain Jessie from stealing Electrike. She runs away. Ash thinks he dreaming. Electrike pratices, and manages to hit the traget. Ash, James, and Meowth become moving targets. Their wearing insulated jackets. Ash isn't happy, the rockets say their used to it. They eventually rush into a forest.

    Jessie comes to steal Electrike in the Potent Pink Princess Power 1. It snatched Electrike. Pikachu tries to zap it, but it's insulated. Electrike evolves! Jessie runs away with Pikachu. James and Meowth jump onto the robots. Meowth slice a hole into the metal robots, and reveals a spinning gear, that is somehow an insulator. Electrike fires a Thunder. Jessie runs all over the place, but the Thunder moves to hit it. Magnetric has mastered Electric control! Magnetric leaves to go to the Power Plant.

    I hack pokemon with my AR. Don't like it? Tough.

    FFIII DS sucks, and MMX6 sucks even more, but MMX7 is just crap.

    It is said that when it roars, a volcano erupts somewhere around the globe.

    ENTEI embodies the passion of magma. This POKEMON is thought to have been born in the eruption of a volcano. It blasts fire that consumes all it touches.

    ENTEI learns Roar at level 15.

    One of the not so good D/P eps IMO. I had ome funny scenes but the plot was a bit over-done. All what Brock said was pretty much basic facts which the other guy should know. Instead they built a plot around it. The part with James helping out was good, showing once again that he is a nice guy in heart.

    6/10 points.

    It wasn't a bad episode, it was just more about the humor than most pokemon episodes. And it was nice to see James and Meowth help out (it reminds me of that old Paras episode), and Ash's reaction to Jesse and James were priceless

    I liked the fact that the character-of-the-day wasn't just another random person having trouble with a Pokemon, he actually had a reason for his problems. He was a Flying-specialist breeder who had to deal with an Electric-type for the first time.

    James: *taunts* "You ca-an't hit me!"
    Ash: "Joke all you want, I'm gettin' outta here!"

    Bill Rogers shows us his versatility once again with the voice of Electrike.

    Manetric's voice sounded a little like Miss Piggy. I'd never thought I'd her both Pokémon and Muppet's together ever.

    Cal is pretty much James and Oak all rolled into one. It's kind of interesting that they decided on using another character name from the G/S/C days.

    After seeing the ep 2 times I have to raise my point to 7/10 p. Ash outbursts was great (someone is out to get me, what is it with me and thundershocks etc.) but still, I think it/the ep had some flaws overall that are unusual for D/P. And I do wonder why they had the plot be about a Hoen Pokemon and not a Sinnoh Pokemon. "Pachu" was unbelivable cute. Remember that it is (for me) a weak D/P ep, which means it is still a great ep, but not up to the usual D/P ep standard.

    Actually, I thought Manectric sounded like Kermit the Frog.

    Well, can't really discuss so much about fillers. This episode was quite enjoyable though.

    The dub music actually fitted with the scenes this time. Unbelievable. Creds to PUSA.

    (I had originally considered posting this following comment on my DS, but unfortunately due to lack of knowledge on how to post the text on the typing screen to the actual top screen message. In short, I had something but now I don')

    ^Now that you know, here's what I am going to say:

    I personally thought I was a rather funny filler. Now, seeing as how Staravia is Ash's I'm kinda curious as to why he didn't say anything about it. It was a different kind of episode, that's for sure. The best part about it was the fact that James and Meowth decided to go against Jessie's wishes, simply because they found Elektrike and... (crap forgot the guy's name) "c-o-t-d" were a better team than they were and found it inspiring. So, they decided to help. Not only that, but they even messed up the music for the motto to reflect how they were feeling, and I couldn't stop laughing. You don't usually see this often.

    Lots of good jokes like Ash better jolted every so often, then actually commenting on it were some good moments. Also, the fact that it was only after Manectric evolves that it perfects it's skills highly remind me of the Snorunt we all used to know who only got Ice Beam down pat till after it had evolved to Glalie.

    Overall, a decent episode that has a great sense of humour. Same usual filler, but a funny one at that.

    Manectrig sounded better in the 4Kids dub.

    All of the Ash-centric violence was an amusing sub plot. It was the beginning of a boy questioning his accursed fate. "Somebody's out to get me!"

    Jaco was a very active character in this, enough so to deserve a change of clothes. Even a towel so he could pretend to be working out. Brock didn't get that.

    Some great work into the TR motto

    "Bringing chaos? at a breakneck pace!"
    "She's dashed all my hope. What a...bummer."

    James and Meowth should have kept their black jackets, later they could pull off a mob look. Well actually..so much for having a conscience, they never retured the insulated coats!

    Being what it is, it scores not a pick more than a 6/10 to me.

    The episode was just another dumb filler. There isn't a 4th generation Pokemon featured in it. It just only features last generation's Pokemon, Electrike.

    I kinda miss the sythsizer voice of the 4Kids Electrike, though. It was cool.

    So this episode is dubbed as "The Electrike Company", right? I know a trainer here has an Electrike, which comes from the previous generation.

    The overall plot for this episode was run of the mill, but I really enjoyed James and Meowth's part in it. It was great that they got inspired to help electrike work to become a better battler and help it practice. It's also interesting that they turned on Jessie to help the newly-evolved manectric work on hitting Jessie's machine as a target.
