    Did anyone else think the scene of a Kingler and Totodile walking next to each other was some kind of cruel joke by the writers?

    Between that and the Muk in that Psyduck filler, I think they're up to something. lol.

    Noooooo, really, the writing crew up to something? That wouldnt be right? otherwise, there'd be no conway, no brock trying to be Tracy and absolutely no 1st- or 2nd-gen appearances..... Can't wait to see what they have in store for us.....

    Now, for those who don't know me, hi. I'm I_D, and I've been heading up a little these days to vists the DP ep talks coz, well, I wanted to see what was going on. I'm a PASBLer, but it looks like I'm gonna be here for a while and talking about all the eps etc...

    So, on to the ep itself. FUN-NY! Conway antics were hilarious. I can't wait to see if they do actually put him into contests as a Harley-type rival! Brock acting all awesome and being great at Drawing? Geez, what else can't he do! Let some of the other trainers, (say Tracey?) have some fun too!! Also, Jessie with lackeys is just fun.

    But, like the others have said so far, it wasn't as good as last week's ep. I hope the pace picks up again next week.

    Conway was hilarious! I liked Jessie having lackies. Lumineon was completely shafted. And it was pretty average...

    I agree with the others, the Lumineon was so boring in this ep coz it will be awesome when Zoe's one evolves....

    Looking through Bulbapedia it was interesting to see some of the old pokés showcased. Totodile. I haven't seen one of those in AGES. As well as that, Corsola, Kingler, Seel. Good to some old pokés seen again.

    It good for the writers as well, I think, coz they get to change it up a bit.

    Yeah, it was like a flashback of the unloved water-oakers. I was thinking the same ^^

    Maybe feeding them was to expensive for good old Oak and he released them, knowing that Ash would never use them again anyway.

    You know its funny, when I first saw the Totodile I actually thought it was Ash's.

    I was like "Totodile? Well that's an awkward cameo to put in this episode" then it showed Totodile with the other Pokemon and group and I was like "Oh right, duh!"

    I don't know why I thought it was Ash's Totodile, I guess it was because of the way they first showed Totodile, it looked like something they would do if they were to show Ash's Totodile.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    The highlight of this ep was the short battle between Conway and Jessie [OMG I love that BGM]. Slowking is badass, Psychic, Water Pulse, Safeguard, Protect what an awesome moveset (well, for the anime at least).

    But yeah, other than the battle, nothing really interesting happened.

    Dawn has become the rivals' favorite target to stalk.

    And Jessie happily spits at child labor laws.

    I think its because all Totodile kind of look alike.

    Well, yeah XDD. That's what I said, the other day... shafted Pokémon, dear. Shafted Pokémon. 8D

    ...

    Okay, Totodile wasn't that shafted, but as you said, it's kind of weird to see it, just, like, randomly... so, :/.



    THE END.

    I don't see how Totodile appearing is anything major.

    I mean, it is a water Pokemon, and this being an episode about water Pokemon.

    I think its because all Totodile kind of look alike.
    Yeah. It's not like Ash's Totodile really had any stand-out features...:0

    Its odd though, that they would add the specific water Pokémon that Ash has already caught. There are so many different choices for water pokémon, there being like the highest number of different species compared to the other types.....

    Cue people speculating that Totodile and Kingler appearing is some sort of foreshadowing to their return.

    Totodile can rot, but Kingler is awesome. Coo-kee Coo-kee and all that.

    I'm not too much of a fan of really short haired girls in anime, they sort of irk me. Plus Ash being with her means some pairing will start up using that picture of them blushing because of their stomachs as evidence.

    I agree, i always preffered Kingler over Squirtle and Totodile, think it was his voice that did it for me ("coo-kee coo-kee).
    But yeah, i would prefer Kingler to come back for a little, i got sick of totodiles giddy antics years ago, i wouldn't want them back now.


    Just a blast from the past, i loved it when krabby evolved.
    HIs voice went from high pitched "co ke co ke"
    to Deep bellowed "cooo keee, cooo kee"
    Awesome ^^

    This episode looks like another boring filler/none of consequence episode. Ash's new friend, Aoi looks like a tranny. Did you guys see how Jessie was bossing about those kids? And the part when the kids gave her a massage. Heh, I bet she promise them a HJ if massage.

    Careful now, don't go giving Jessie ideas... It's interesting how they keep giving the political stuff to the TR trio.....

    what the hell is up with that lake? I mean, the games and earlier episodes of the anime have had some sense to establish Pokemon that live in freshwater and salt water bodies, but here, it seems like every friggin' water-type under the sun (short of the legendaries that Musashi wanted to find) can be found here. Please tell me the scientists running the summer school were the ones who put all of them there (or I guess I could, if I bother looking for any such line mentioning that in Japanese).

    On the plus side, I guess we did get to see some of the more neglected water-types out there, including Tattsuu.... I don't think we've seen one of those since Kasumi horribly neglected hers. On the other hand, if this is just so the writers could fill some quota of making each Pokemon appear within a certain number of episodes, I guess we're not gonna see most of these guys again for a loooooooong time (a real shame... it almost seems like the anime's finally moved on from Water Gun abuse and the writers finally decided to show off OTHER Water-type attacks, including the HMs).

And I agree. Without him, this episode wouldn't have been half as fun as it was. Jessie manipulating young boys with her feminine charms and using them as cheap slave labour can't carry an episode by itself y'know!
    Or at least a series of them.
    In any case, I'm glad he's managed to nab himself a place during this arc, and I sincerely hope his appearences here won't mark his final performance in the show. Since Harley jumped on a power sneaker TV and rushed off to Johto, he's the only 'fun' character we've got, and that's more precious than a Golden Sudowoodo Filler.
    back during the Tag Battle arc, I suspected that his sinister looks was foreshadowing him being a member of Ginga Dan or something... now I'm seeing more and more that the guy's quite simply a pervert. And for probably being the most blatant and deprived of perverts this series will ever see, he is all the more awesome for it. XD

    -Speaking of MEGAstuff, Slowking vs. Megayanma, as one-sided and short as it may have been, was still a pretty good battle regardless. A MEGA battle, one might say. I particulary enjoyed Conway's reaction of nerdish glee as Dawn commented on his MEGA battling skills. Daww, how shippy-adorable-kawaii-cute.


    MEGA BTW, did anyone MEGA notice after that MEGA battle, Kouhei's MEGA Yadoking seemed to be going at the same MEGA running pace as everyone else? These MEGA directors are going a bit MEGA nuts with having the MEGA slow Pokemon go MEGA fast.

    Yamato, I love your signature. What anime/manga is it from, or is it just an original image? :O

    Gravy if loads of nub members start using MEGA in front of their words thus establishing the creation of a new forum fad I will actually kill you. Where do you get of creating such MEGAfads? You MEGAflavour adding liquid you. :<

    DP has had some awesome arcs so far, I'm greatly enjoying the sound of this. It's as close as Pokemon will ever get to a Yu-Gi-Oh! GX style story which should never happen ever.

    Although I did once make a false press release detailing how Pokemon WAS to get a spin-off series that sounded suspiciously like a Pokemon GX. Was fun while some people believed it. :P
