    Meh, I never understood the appeal of Chimecho. The other 'mascot' pokemon (Togepi, Mime Jr, Wobbuffet, and to a small extent Meowth) get flak for being useless, but at least those guys had adventures sometime! Granted Chimecho had a beautifully animated farewell ep with a good score to boot, but what did it do during it's tenure? Enter one contest and use Heal Bell ad nauseum? TR has/had superhuman recovery without the bell (like how James can fall several feet, be put in a full body cast, and then compete in an obstacle course the next day). Maybe it's just me but "Sweet Baby James" dulls in emotional impact to the other Rocket goodbyes (Dustox, Cacnea, Arbok & Weezing) since they were more of an onscreen presence and/or lasting multiple seasons. So I can take or leave another flashback.

    The reference to Chimecho made me smile, because I still miss that loveable little wind chime pokemon. It was obvious that there would be a nod since Chingling is a baby Chimecho, but it was still nice to see Chimie remembered. I thought the chingling's singing was cute in this episode too.

    When you mean horrendous, I think you mean it was out of tune. Turns out, much of Pokemon music in general except for the symphonic arrangements are out of tune anyway.

    Normally I quite like fillers but this one was pure annoying, it has put me off Chingling even more than I was before.

    The only thing I liked about this was Gligar's screentime and the fact James had a proper Chimecho flashback, other than that, it was quite a bad episode.

    I really thought that this episode was the worst episode ever, fist off they made a cute chingling look like a peice of crap then they had this bad storyline, and I really hate how ash and co. are so stupid in not rcognizing a robot.

    Apart from the cureness of the Chingling, I didn't like this episode that much.

    Meh. Rather average episode I felt. Sure, some parts were funny, but apart from that...

    Chingling isn't one of my favourite Pokemon, but those three were cute.

    I don't think James would have been happy with a Chingling, because it would be a constant reminder of his Chimecho.

    The scene with the Chingling next to Giovanni waking him up with their song made me laugh. Good filler overall, I'd give it a 8/10.

    I saw this episode a while ago, Chingling is a cute Pokemon, it would really fit in James's team

    That was boring episode except we finally saw Gligar using some attack.

    After seeing James's reaction to Chingling, most likely he will get one. Besides, isn't Chingling the pre evolution of Chimeco?

    Other then that, this episode was not to great except, like Ash-Kid said, we got to finally see some of Gligar's moves.

    What? Why would he get the pre-evolution of a Pokemon that he already has? It'll just rot like Mime Jr., neither Chimecho nor Mime Jr. did anything so I doubt a weak Chingling would be useful.

    Anyway, interesting Filler, I liked that mechanical Chingling. It was funny. 5/10

    This episode was pretty boring. Outside of the Chinglings and their trainer doing magic tricks, nothing was really entertaining about this one.
