    Well...Jesse successfully "stole" Shellder from James in Evolution Solution...but then it got stuck to a Slowpoke anyway.

    Although the battle and capture happened about fifteen feet from Giovanni and he never once brought it up...

    Strange how Giovanni apparently had loads of Yanma, but returned one which was clearly a heartbeat from evolving since it already knew Ancient Power

    Thumbs up Darn good

    I liked this episode. It was a nice, refreshing break from the normally boring fillers that we have. How did it do that? By bringing back a plot device that we haven't seen in ages - the "new trainer".

    "New trainer" episodes are the only types that really remind us that this series actually has an ounce of continuity. Satoshi always reflects on what it was like when he started out as a trainer, and we get to see how he has changed as a character since then - not much, but he's not exactly the same.

    I want to mention that I liked the landscape a lot. The lake area was very beautiful. I found it remarkable in comparison to most natural areas in the show, which are mostly one generic forest/city. I guess they had to make this one interesting, since the whole episode took place there.

    The whole thing with TR sending Yanma to Sakaki was hilarious, in my opinon. I can imagine how emotional they'd feel after finally being useful to him, but what they didn't realize is that they sent him something totally useless. It's one of the few times that you actually feel bad for them, rather than just laughing at their antics. Well, OK, I laughed and felt bad for them.

    The whole interaction between Satoshi & Co. and the young trainer was also enjoyable. Seeing them act as mentors to him was really interesting in comparison to most episodes, when they learn new things.

    In conclusion, this episode was a nice change of pace, and pretty well-done too. It's the occasional episode like this that keeps the series from getting completely and utterly stale. (It's only mostly stale now. :P)

    How could Jessie be so mean?Tyler should have gotten it! But then he would have a had a powerful Pokemon and he had been a Pokemon trainer for a week.

    I'm starting to get tired of this Ash, what Team Rocket did was dirty and cheap, but they didn't steal anything. You went looking for them with the intention of taking Yanma back. THAT would have been stealing! [sorry, I just hate hypocrites]

    Nice episode, Yanmega made a great first impression, great moves and an intimidating voice. I can't wait to see it in contests.

    I found it funny how Team Rocket thought that Giovanni gave them back Yanma because he wanted to thank them. How dumb can people get?

    I don't think any of them specifically said they were going to take it back, and Brock did point out shortly after they started looking that "once a Pokemon's captured, that's that". I think they were just looking for TR out of annoyance really.

    So having now seen both the RAW and DUB episodes, I'm still not entirely convinced that Yanmega's gonna be around for too, too long, like Dustox. Still, alright episode, but not entirely memorable for me.
    Thank you Brock for being the voice of reason once more: Once a pokémon's captured, that's that. No point being upset about it for too long. TR are dirty, rotten scoundrels, and we've always known that.
    I wonder though, if Tyler will eventually be a recurring guest?

    Exception to the rule: Paul, Team Cipher/Snagem. Okay, so they're not really part of the series, but considering they're part of the basic mechanic, it works. Yeah, a bit of technicalities on my part, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

    Loved it. Finally a great Pokémon for TR. I hope Jessie can put up better fights now. James just needs a Snover that evolves into Abomasnow now. I hope they doesn't get blasted off as much now.

    BUT WHAT THE HELL?! BEATEN BY THE ****ING BUIZEL AGAIN?!! GOD DAMMIT I HATE BUIZEL!! AN UN-EVOLVED POKÉMON ISN'T THAT STRONG!!!

    Good episode. I'm glad that kid got a Yanma after Jesse stole it. But it's cool that Jesse got one to. And it evolved, nonetheless. Yanma is awesome.

    I'm surprised that Giovanni sent it back to them, he checked out the attacks that it knew, so he must have realised it was going to evolve.

    Episode was great. Jessie, James and Meowth were soo evil in this episode, I liked that... I like the fact Jessie got that flying thing and it was cool seeing another Piplup, not only Dawn's one...

    I think TR is in denial about how much Giovanni appreciates their work. He sends back Yanma and they think it was because he loved it and decided he didn't deserve it as much as they did. If they had caught that second one, I wonder how Giovanni would have reacted.

    Yay a Yanma episode! I loved it! Not only did we see a couple of Yanma, but Team Rocket was more involved that usual. I cannot believe Jessie caught a Yanma but sent it to Giovanni.

    Giovanni got his old VA back for this episode, which was excellent. About the COTD, the fact that he had a female Piplup was so cute. I've always wanted to see if there was a difference between male and female Piplup.

    The ending surprised me. I didn't think Jessie's Yanma would evolve so soon. Yanmega was probablt added only so it could replace her Dustox though :/ 8/10

    Poor kid. Kept trying and trying, but he never gave up! No sir-ee!
    I was happy to finally see TR do catch something and be semi-evil.
    It was nice to see TR's delibird too!

    I couldn't believe that TR actually successfully stole a pokemon (kinda). It's funny how Giovanni has no feelings for them yet they yearn to make him happy, especially Meowth with his little dream sequences. I'm glad the kid finally caught a Yanma though and Yanmega fits perfectly with Jessie. Great episode.

    It was interesting how they got Yanma, but it was a fair catch so there wasn't really anything anyone could do like Brock said. Maybe if TR did that with Pachirisu, Wild Smoochum, Wild Jigglypuff and all the wild Pokemon for that matter and threw a pokeball they would be successful, because Ash and co isn't really going to take the pokeball back because that is still stealing.

    I think Giovanni said he already had a bunch of Yanmas, most of them was probably most likely to evolve into Yanmega. And I am betting TR doesn't even know what Giovianni what he wants with all these Pokemon. No it's not so he can have them singing in the morning or acting like an alarm clock or take him flying or so he can have sands at some non sand beach. Even legendaries like Articuno they don't realize he actually wants it for its rarity/power not so it can act as an fan,

    This one is another personal favorite of mine, and I think it's a good representation of what Sinnoh is about. Ash's reaction to the young kid crying over Team Rocket capturing what should be his Yanmega is pretty unexpected: he tells the kid to stop crying for the reason that the kid can't be discouraged over something like this. And Ash doesn't mean Team Rocket is low-down and not worth the effort; what he means is life is full of difficult challenges, and as a trainer, it's important not to be discouraged. The writers, by showing this little kid's dismay, are showing, by contrast, how far Ash, Dawn, and Brock have come as trainers. Well, definitely Ash and Brock, we already knew- still nice to see the Caterpie memory, though! I think the important thing is that this does put into perspective the seriousness of the doubts Dawn has had recently. The troubles the kid faces in this episode don't really compare; and that's, I think, what Ash hints at when he tells the kid to be strong. Maybe as a sort of apology for this, Ash shows the kid his badges (as well as Dawn showing him her ribbons), and all three of our heroes show of their pokemon to the kid, to make him feel better. They stick with the kid until he catches his own Yanma, and, as the narrator says at the end of the episode, they feel pretty satisfied they made a difference in the kid's beginning journey. I remember when I first watched this episode (which I can't say for many episodes), and the reason I remember this one is b/c of what Ash said. He didn't tell the kid that Team Rocket are jerks and they'll get in trouble or something (they, of course, do not get into trouble); he told the kid these things happen, and he has to learn to accept them w/o giving up or being upset about it. And that's a very realistic moral.

    Yikes, though. Ash didn't have to be mean to a kid right after I said Sinnoh Ash tends not to get onto people about their faults. Kids are more impressionable, and maybe he felt it was important to be firm here. He rarely does this, from what I remember.

    Tomorrow will be a fitting episode to look at, heading into Thursday's new episode where Ash and Paul start their Sinnoh League Battle. The beginning of the end of Sinnoh is almost here.
