when i finaly realised it wasent a dream that he caught gligar,i didnt want it
to evelove(i love little gligy!)but **** happens.but i cant forgive ash for giving
it away to that stupid scizor trainer ) .
An odd episode, it started out ok with Ash and Turtwig practicing Energy Ball and then being interupted by a swarm of Gligar. I found it funny that they tried to steal food, how often does that happen?
Seeing Paul again was refreshing, even more so because he appeared with his trusty Murkrow. The overal plan to lead them away from the city though, was a bit confusing to me. I would've thought they could handle this situation using other methods like steel nets instead of luring them with food.
Anyway, it was a shock to see Ash catch his sixth Pokemon so early in DP. He didn't catch his 6th Hoenn Pokemon until AFTER his seventh badge. How things change, 6/10

I don't understand your post. First you praise the food and then you bash it about how it was confusing luring them by it. The steal food all the time (that's why the town's people were so angry), so why not lure them with it?!
This was an OK episode. I always thought Gligar was a weird pokemon for Ash to have but I like the flying gag between it and Ash, it's pretty funny.
Not a bad episode, it was nice for Ash to catch his sixth Pokemon, even if I would have given him a different one. Of course Pokemon always steal food, they must really love it.
Why is it Ash always goes "Whoa, it's Paul!" Always with the whoa everytime he sees Ash. Anyways it was nice for him to catch Gliscor, you could tell Ash and co didn't like the idea though but he caught it fair and square, they can't really tell anyone how to catch a Pokemon (Much like Jessie when she caught Yanma)
I really want to have fun with this review and just have a laugh at myself. See, I had this review in mind back when I was doing the Tag Battle tournament reviews; I was going to use this review as another example of the writers having to make an adjustment to the story. Just based on this episode alone, Paul's capture of Gliscor and Ash's capture of Gligar looks to be something that might push their rivalry further. But that honestly never happens. Now the reason why the writers never took this further, I believed for a long time, is b/c one of Paul's other pokemon turned out to be much, much stronger than anticipated. There just wasn't any room for Paul's Gliscor on his team, or so I thought. But a few days ago, Paul's team to be used against Ash in the Sinnoh League was revealed, and goodness it's a surprise. So the pt I was going to make with this review has been totally struck down, and only good fortune has kept me from looking like a total idiot. That's life, I suppose. Well, on to the review.
This episode breaks away from Dawn's confidence problems, so it sort of feels out of place. I also think Paul's appearance here is one of his weakest ones, since many of the things he does here are pretty stereotypical for him; Paul catches Gliscor and then leaves w/o caring about what the other Gligar might do to the town if they can't return to the forest. As Ash says, "Just like Paul." The writers have Paul in this episode to simply act like a jerk and nothing more, with the reasoning being we expect him to act like a jerk. So, really, Paul isn't needed in this episode at all, though I did laugh at seeing Paul and his pokemon get knocked down while trying to catch Gliscor, since he tends to avoid comedic moments like that. Something else out of character for him, I think, is his lack of respect for Ash, considering what happened at the Tag Battle Tournament. That, plus no attention on what Dawn has been going through recently (which maybe is the pt of this episode, to give a relief?) really makes me think this episode would have been more enjoyable and made more sense if it happened before the Tag Battle Tournament episodes.
Gligar is my favorite of Ash's Sinnoh captures. It's a harmless show-off, a scared teary-eyed pokemon at heart, yet sincere in how it likes Ash. I think the way Ash trains Gligar in future episodes is the most entertaining training Ash does in Sinnoh.
Gosh, this episode is so action-packed that there is not that much to say. Turtwig masters Energy Ball in this episode (with Ash showing a great deal of faith in it to use it at the time he did; although he was not totally reckless, he did try to use Pikachu's thunderbolt first on Team Rocket's balloon and only resorted to Turtwig's energy ball when he had no other option). I think this episode may also be the start of the time where Piplup stays out its pokeball, just like Pikachu does.

When Paul sets his eyes on a pokemon he will capture it no doubt....Although Ash and friends were the reason Paul couldn't catch a fearow in one of the episodes "A-Maze-ing race" in diamond and pearl
This episode was ok... It was cool to see Gliscor for the 1st time. Interesting how Paul caught the leader Gliscor, and then later on Ash caught a Gligar. Ash's Gligar is so cute! It loves to land on top of Ash, and of course, let its tail hang out. Strange how Paul used Electabuzz's Electric attack to take down the Gligar and Gliscor, when it's not even possible... It was great to see Turtwig finally able to use Energy Ball correctly.
