    Ash and co. really made weird mad expressions at Team Rocket when retrieving Hippopotas from them. Now I don't know who they are anymore.

    Well D/P really are different. I re- watched the ep just now and enjoyed every minute of it. The trios use of the TR motto was fun. And did you notice that Wobba and Mr Mime Jr was abscent from the ep, that was a bit unusual.

    The work going into D/P has suddenly jumped, and refused to come down. Aside from the Leagues, a string of good episodes this long is unheard of. A basic filler plot like this was taken to the next level with the TV crew, good use a yawn bubble gag, and many fun subtleties in the dialouge. I think it all started with Cheryl showing up, or maybe Buizel. But the average of these episodes is unparalleled to the previous low standard as Cooking up a Great Story, or a basic Hoenn/Johto filler.

    Still thought Buizel submerging the dry-ground type was pretty funny. And James a lead role in today's scheme? Jessie/Meowth falling asleep made that flawless. Ronda smacking Jack, too many delightful segments to detail, I'll leave it at..

    ..well said.

    7/10 I found it very amusing.

    The pre-evolution of one of my favorite pokemon almost tipped the scale in the episode for me. But not for a lack of potential. Hippowdon firing its sand canons for a force of taking a rock to the face, creating its own landscape, and sinking into ground for defense would have all been an interesting fighting style to see for Ash. No doubt that would take a heavy toll on the animation team.

    For a thunder-striken minute the little sand terrestial was facing the three trainers with a plump face, Dawn throwing in some words, and Ash ready to reach out his hand and offer it a pokeball. To think that if the TV crew never showed up... Oh well, that's the end of this tale.

    For that moment hippopotas is using yawn, I though that it wanted to sleep. Well... Or maybe it need someone else to sleep with.

    You know, I just realized we never figure out what happened to Rhonda and the rest of the crew. After the second commercial break, they are absent for the rest of the episode. Wierd, huh?

    I thought the episode itself was okay, it was kinda cute...But my major problem was with the dub music, I cannot stand PUSA's work. I absolutely hate it. The music can be okay once and a while, but what really ruins it is all the little "blunder" sounds that they add in it and stuff, it annoys me to no end.

    The episode was good, but what was comical and silly about it was that Jessie couldn't bother to say Hippopotas at all.

    I just watched this online yesterday and
    thought it was a cool episode
    Ash really should have caught hippotopas
    because he saved it and all the bonding they had togther
    (I like hippopotas now after that episode)

    This was a pretty funny episode. I liked Jessie falling asleep during the motto and James having to do her lines like a puppet. LOL I also liked the recurring gag of Jessie coming up with all sorts of variations on "hippopotas". At least we get to see the little hippopotas again the following season.

    Oh yes, and I like the twerps doing a mini-motto, that was funny. I don't know if Dawn did the "prepare for trouble" line as a motto, though, because really she only heard that line once before they changed to the current motto. Brock chiming in with the next line, and James's reaction, though, were great.

    Loved this episode.

    First of all, the Hippopotas looked so "awwwwww"-worthy.

    Jessie mispronouncing his name everytime made my day.

    Another great episode.

    I was disappointed that no-one caught it though.

    I would have been a good edition to their teams.

    There's cute. Then there's obnoxiously cute. Then there's wanna-blow-my-bleeping-brains-out-with-a-gun-that-shoots-rainbows cute. Hippopotas is that last one. Note that even when I try to spell its name correctly, I can't do it. Blah. And for the love of buttered toast, people, Hippopopopo is not a "stalker" Pokemon like Jigglypuff. It returns once. Same with Spoink. I assume that Plusle/Minun kid back in Hoenn is also a "stalker" according to this logic, correct? Anyways, combined with the return of Yuuka, this makes for a charming episode that is ultimately let down by how doggone repetitive it is. And Yuuka mysteriously vanishes from the episode halfway through, with is disappointingly odd.

    I love Team Rocket, but this is their worst episode in all of Sinnoh. I'm fine with a single attempt per episode to make a heist, but FOUR? It basically turns an otherwise cute episode into a tedious game of "keep-away". This would be more acceptable were it for comic relief, but it's not. Speaking of comic relief, fortunately this episode has enough of it to keep me barely entertained, such as the return of motto-mockery. That said, Pokemon riding Satoshi's head stopped being amusing before even Naetle did it. If Pokemon sold on cuteness alone - and it does in many cases - this episode would succeed. But some of us prefer a little more depth, or at least as much as we can expect from a series such as this.

    I was actually impressed. It was a cute episode, even in the dubbed version I was laughing and almost crying when they let Hippopotas go ;_;

    Team Rocket's attempts to kidnap Hippopotas were getting on my nerves. This could've been a great episode but their antics ruined some of that.

    Too bad Ash didn't capture it. He needed a Ground type. 7/10

    This episode was pretty funny. Jesse messing up the name and the Rhonda gag were hilarious. Good episode.
