    I love what Dawn did with Grimer; put seals on its PokéBall. <33.Oox~ It made me think that Dawn actually owned the Pokémon, which is pretty cool. : ) Also... JESSIE+SMOOCHUM. 8'D Looooooved that. : D It's like if the writers came to the forum and saw my gorgeous post about Jessie+Smoochum~ It was a dream come true, as I said, in the other thread :3. And Jessie's outfit was cute ^^. And amazing :*. And awesome x33. Pupu, mainly :BBB~. <~



    THE END.

    This was really enjoyable. It's not often that so-called 'filler' pokémon are given so much personallity, and good personallities at that, so this is something I'm going to savour.
    Even if it was a slight re-tread of Muk, Grimer was undoubtedly the funniest, especially when it slimmed itself down and copied Hikari's pose to the point where you could slap on a illegally short mini-skirt and not tell the difference between the two.
    Oh that Hikari, and her bulging, sludge secreting pores.
    Honestly, various people are always going on about how the characters should only receive pokémon that 'fit them', but the Hikari-Grimer pair is just one, big middle finglonger. If Grimer wasn't a first generation rental pokémon part of a story driven arc, I'd be speculating like an average Serebii Pokémon Animé section member without a sliver of imagination right about now.

    "Haven't you ever heard of 'ladies first', you chauvinistic shonen hero!"
    "NO WAI, YURA GURL!?!"
    Wa-wa-waaaaaa.
    Even though it's only been one episode thus far, I'd be up for Aoi returning in the future as a full-time rival to Ash. She certainly did a good job of filling that role here, and her constant spats and parallels with him were quite fun to watch. And from what I can gather, it's going to be an ongoing thing for the next couple of episodes, so there's some cause for celebration.



    Shinjo's interpretation of Moukazaru looked really cool, despite how many of you were pegging it as 'hideous' in the preview. That'll teach you to judge a pokémon by a single frame.

    Wasn't it Natsume who animated this one? or did Natsume share with Shinjo? (Shinjo hasn't done an ep solo since DP025.)

    Ahh, my bad. Their artwork looks so damn similar, I lost track of who's who ages ago.

    So did Ash's Moukazaru/Moneferno evolve from a Chimchar?

    So how was Ash in interacting with Raichu?

    Ash didn't get Monferno, Aoi did.

    The screenshot of Dawn, Piplup and Grimer all doing the same pose made my day, and its only 11 AM where I live.

    <Sigh> It is almost like a curse of evolvution death when the anime shows one of Ash pre-evolved forms of some other same pokemon that evolves. I guess Chimchar will never learn Mach Punch and <sniff> Close Combat. Oh why can't Ash get a darn fighting type pokemon that doesn't leave him in like 10 episodes? Why? Why?

    Seriously, sounds like this episode is another in a great line of Sinnoh filler episodes which is good. I can't wait til I get to see this episode.

    ^ Chimchar will evolve and possibly use those moves eventually. I am actually glad that Monferno wasn't Ash's. I liked how it had a bad attitude and everything and it was really funny to see with Aoi. My favorite pairing has got to be Ash and Raichu. I really liked how it was shy and timid and it would always dig to hide. Not to mention when Ash pulled its fur...so hilarious! It makes me sad to see that Ash won't keep Raichu because it has such a funny personality.

    I also love Dawn and Grimer. Grimer posing with Dawn was so fiercely funny haha. I really liked it and I loved how Dawn was all contest with Grimer in their battle. Again, I'm so sad that a great pokemon like Grimer won't be part of the group.

    This is really one of my favorite episodes because of all the amusement. The interactions between trainer and pokemon, Ash vs. Aoi, Conway, Jessie and Smoochum...it was all great! The only thing I wonder is what was Prof. Rowan saying at the end of the episode? The scene went from Ash and co. to Conway to Jessie...any significance at that part?

    But overall, I love this episode and it was totally entertaining! Can't wait for the rest of the arc!

    EDIT: Btw, isn't it interesting that Ash was supposed to get Monferno before Aoi took it?

    Wait! Aoi is a girl!? :O

    Anyway, I just hate how the writers give us amazing pokemon such as Raichu and Grimer but Ash and Dawn won't keep them. There's so much potential as seen in this episode but sadly they're rentals.
    Ash already has a pikachu and Muk...

    Though I do hope Jessie steals the Smuchum by the end of the arc.

    This episode was epic and awesome and there should be many many more like it.
    I mean, when was the last time we actually saw a full fledged GOOD battle between two pokemon?
    I have to applaud this, And Also Grimer was awesome and I hope we see much more of the little guy. *avoids speculation urges*

    Also, I must note, this is the 3rd time Raichu has made an appearance in DP
    and the second time Jessie has wanted/liked a smoochum. (Maybe third)

    After watching next week's preview, I noticed Aoi wearing a swimsuit top. *shivers*

    Heck and the way she and Ash went at it, i'm suprised no one's tried to "ship" them yet.

    Though I do hope Jessie steals the Smuchum by the end of the arc.
    She got yanmega not too long ago, and Jynx doesn't have an evolution so it would be pointless to premote it.

    Jessie finally got a Smoochum, remember the Battle Frontier filler where she wanted to keep that Smoochum with the 3 Jynx? I wonder if this is continuity.

    Ash commanding Raichu in battle is something people wondered about for 11 years, nice to see something like that actually happen.

    Dawn and Grimer were by far the most amusing. They better have Ash reference his Muk or bring it back too at some point.

    Is it just me or is Brock and Magnemite a very boring pair? Once again Brock gets the short end of the stick.

    She has a manlier voice than Nozomi (Zoey), and a flatter chest than Misty--so yea, of course I'm gonna think she's a man.

    IMO, She's the Haku (from Naruto) version of Pokemon.

    I always say, Ash picks the butch girls. Okay, if she starts blushing at him at the end of this arc (just like Anabel) I'm going to be sick.

    This was one hell of an episode. I say that because of Conway. I mean seriously, that man made the episode. But I've always had a thing for creepy looking perverts and you don't get much creepier than Conway. He seemed more so in this one than in all of the episodes in the Tag Battle arc. And that bedroom is just the icing on the cake.

    But back to Aoi, I'm just reminded of the bone-headed crap we saw during the Hoenn League with Morrison. That's what it reminded me of. It also reminded me of Shauna from two of the Dewford Island episodes. I guess it's because I've been watching retro episodes again and I see patterns constantly.

    Dawn and Grimer together is just beautiful. I seriously love it. Especially the whole strike a pose moments.

    And then I say my WTF's right now. WTF?! Conway and Venonat. Stop spitting on Tracey you stupid writers and animators.

    And WTF?! Country music! Lots of banjos! Don de los Yikes!

    I was rather upset that Jessie didn't get the Smoochum in the BF filler, mostly because it's not like she was trying to steal someone's owned.

    I'd like to see her come out of this arc with a Smoochum as well, but it's very highly likely she won't since she just got Megayanma.

    Dawn and this Grimer are pretty good together. I kinda wish she didn't just get a Swinub because I'd like her to get to keep this Grimer. Ash and Raichu are a pair I thought I'd never see. That was pretty interesting to say the least.

    And I'll pretty much agree with everyone else who wants Aoi to return in the Sinnoh League with a Luxray and the rest of her team. I'd like to see her become a real threat to Ash.

    Grimer, Magnemite, Venonat, it's like a Underloved 1st Gen Anonymous Meeting.

    But somehow I notice something a little unfair. One dude had like a Mightyena, another had a Dodrio, and I saw a Croconaw as well.

    So what is James going to do in this arc? Why is he seemingly not participating?

    Ash didn't get Monferno. He got a Raichu.

    Aoi (isn't that blue in Japanese?) got the Monferno.
