In regards to which move Joy's Croagunk used; It was Vacuum Wave. Suffice to say, it'll most likely not feature a giant pink heart every time it's used in the future, but that should be a no-brainer anyway.
This was a great episode, which did a good job of successfully summaring why I love this show so much; Crazy creatures receiving the bulk of focus, and wacky antics involving slapstick and bizarre facial expressions. There's not much more you could ask for.
‘Cept for a human Carnivine.
….which they provided.
I'm disappointed Wake didn't grab anyone in a headlock before throwing them to the floor with the strength of 100 Mukus and executing a body slam (and who wouldn‘t be?), but fortunately it didn’t deter from what they did get right, because despite the lack of pointless violence, he was adequately nuts. Hopefully his subsequent appearances are just as macho.
Team Rocket were in their prime here, strutting up to all you nay-sayers and flaunting the fact that they are still capable of being funny. Even James’ flashback had an essence of humour to it, touching as it was. Following up with the laughs of elation he emitted from Carnivine’s maw as he revelled in fulfilling nostalgia only serves to present the question of how anyone could dislike these guys.
