    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.
    Thanks.

    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.

    Vacuum Wave? She used "Vacuum Wave"? It makes sense, but that in no way looks like what I'd assume VW to look like. Damn pink heart confusing me... Granted, it makes the most sense seeing what it was able to do.

    Well, at least you recognized it, thanks.

    Question

    Did anyone else notice that Carnivine was HUGE after the flash back?

    Maybe Vaccum Wave users are able to manipulate the shape of the attack.

    Hooray for references.



    I guess that explains the clingy Croagunk attatched to Hiroki's shirt.

    Defiantly an amazing episode. They finally show a Safari Zone (or similar) again, although not the real purpose of it. Carnivine flashback was the best.
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    I can't honestly believe people fell for Meowth's disguise. Seriously, there's a limit to suspension of disbelief.

    The dance at the end of the episode was funny! xD
    How do you know it wasn't Flatter, or Return? I think it was one of those. THis episode was great. I loved the part at the end when the Croagunks were praising the Giant Robot one.

    too bad brock lost.

    great episode

    the meowth this is kinda funny. those dump people of Pastoria town

    hey, I just remembered something.... in the Japanese version, when Kojirou first found Masukippa's Monster Ball amongst his old bottle cap collection, I distinctly recall him saying he had it since he was 2 (ni-sai). Did he say "12" (juuni-sai) and I somehow happened to miss that, or is this another continuity error?

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    I translate for #Pocketmonsters (just because I know Japanese does not make me Japanese, stop PMing me).

    It doesn't seem like they used the male/female difference in this episode...

    Maybe because the attack Joy called out was Vacuum Wave? That ever occur to you? What kind of question is that, especially when we have a thread where we can easily look up such things for ourselves?

    I just checked, and it seems like James was only referring to his bottle cap collection, as in, "I started collecting these when I was two years old."

    His only comment on Carnivine itself was that they always used to play together whenever he came to Sinnoh - there was no information on when he had met it.

    That was my favorite part.

    It was even funnier due to the fact that all the Croagunk were doing the same thing whiile the judges somehow picked up on tiny differences. Even Ash and Dawn were confused.

    I didn't care for the COTD in this episode. He reminded me of a badly drawn 80's cartoon character. However, he was one of the most animated COTD's in a while.

    Is That Scary Clefairy still around these boards? I'd love to see what he can come up with in regards to Wake art. I wouldn't mind meeting him in an alley.

    Overall this was a great episode...one of the few fillers that I don't really mind watching.

    Not to mention getting a high score is something of a bit awkward. Or maybe they knew it was a fake and just ran with it? Oh, and trust me, if people have a hard time believing it's Team Rocket in the most blatantly obvious of disguises, I hardly see a problem with Meowth being disguised as a Croagunk and not knowing it isn't so bad (probably one of their better ones too I might add).

    I'm with Bliksem and Cobalt_Latios on Meowth's disguise. It borked my poor brain, especially seeing that one scene when all the Croagunk were standing in a line with him at the end looking so obviously different....

    Wake got very little spotlight in this episode, makes me wonder if we'll see more than 2 eps of him.

    I have a feeling that he might be in the upcoming Swinub episode.

    Speaking of which, he practically gave himself a broken wrist trying to do a karate chop! I nearly doubled over my seat laughing!
