    Man, why is it that all the tomboys or the non-feminine girls are always the ones who get a crush on Ash? Aoi blushing over Ash reminds me of Anabel from Battle Frontier.

    Anyone notice that the girls who are actually feminine have no interest in Ash, yet the girls who are "manly" or "tomboyish" are always the ones who end up liking him?

    I guess you can chalk up Aoi on the list of girls who have liked Ash in the series.

    The best about this ep was the music.

    It used a LOT of old Kanto music that we haven't heard in years - for instance the Charmeleon -> Charizard music that was last used in the Johto League when Heracross pwned Magmar.

    I SO want to see Aoi in the Sinnoh League.

    Maybe she'll beat Paul's pokémon.

    Only one image can describe this episode.



    - So apparently they race from a bundle of generic trees and through a giant potato and the winners must stand on a T-shaped Tetris Block. That's the impression I got from the chalkboard drawing, anyways.
    - Jeepers, it's the Creeper! ...I mean Conway.
    - For a second there I thought Brock was going to have a Hulk moment.
    - Pochama...RECALLED!? Now the poor little Japanese kiddies will go through shocks and withdrawals!
    - Oh, thank goodness Hippowdon gets to appear in a well-animated episode. And it's STILL ugly.
    - Background characters...just so expendable.
    - Oh, I see now. The potato was supposed to be a lake.
    - *insert mandatory Dawn/Sharpedo joke*
    - Conway + Sharpedo + Dawn all in the same scene...
    - Biggest laugh thus far in the episode goes to Jessie & Magikarp.
    - Bottomless pit in a cave...at least in Donkey Kong Country, I had a few extra lives when I'd fall down one.
    - And a good ol' CG bonfire to top things off. But no farewell for Conway?

    Great way to finish off an inconsistent arc. It'd be a real shame not to see Aoi again, but not seeing Conway again would be the biggest crime of all. Of course, I think Holly deserves a return first. As for the shipping, I'm going to continue not caring about this series' romances.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    I´d be lying when I say that I highly enjoyed this mini-arc. The lake episode was boring except for Kouhei and the ghost episode was somewhat nice, but nothing too special. But nevertheless, the first episode of this mini-arc was brilliant and today´s episode surely made up for the lame lake-episode.
    It had a lot humor, awesome characters like Kouhei and Jessie had more than enough moments to shine, cool animation, lots of different Pokemon ( too bad most of them didn´t get much screentime...) and even some cute scenes beside Mr. Tomboy-lover and Mrs. Tomboy.

    Aoi needs to return later in this series. Preferable as a Masamune-like rival during the league. I really like her, for some reason she reminds me of Seiya from Sailor Moon...maybe because her japanese VA sounds kinda like Seiya´s German VA...
    I wish we had seen more of her Pokémon though.

    Kouhei quickly jumps into my top 10 list of my favourite characters ( wait...I don´t have such a list....but..urrr..you know what I mean ^^ ). ALL of his scenes in this episode were awesome. His digging through the ground, his diving under Hikari and Brock ( he sure likes to be underground), his fanboying over Hikari and Musalina, his funny walking, how he crossed the finishing line etc.
    Like Aoi, he NEEDS to return. As he is kinda linked to both, Hikari and Musalina, a contest with him would be more than awesome.


    Too bad Brock didn´t even mention his own Onix when he got his rental one. Or did he?
    And as stated before, I think some rental Pokémon could have needed some more screentime like the spring-pig or the Hippo ( because it deserves more screentime with a good AD after its HORRIBLE debut episode) and...of course...the rentals from episode 1 of this Summer school arc.
    I can´t help it but think that this arc would have been so much better if the first rentals would have stayed with the characters for the whole arc.

    I liked how Ash and Aoi had a nice little moment at the end of the episode. Yeah, I´m a sucker for moments like that...-.-

    I found it really cute how Musalina reacted towards her own little fanclub at the end when they thanked her. How unexpected. Jessie really is a GREAT character. She doesn´t get enough love in the fandom

    I wish Kouhei had some kind of goodbye but instead we saw how he picked up some food...meh...

    Looking back, this arc wasn´t perfect and not all episodes were enjoyable, but I liked the feeling of it. Kinda like YuGiOh-GX ( not that I´m into YuGiOh ). I like school themed scenarios and it was refreshing to see something like this in Pokémon.

    Jessie with her Hippowdon and Magikarp and Conway appearing and suddenly disappearing made this episode for me. Definitely a great episode.

    I’m still not happy with Shinx’s voice. It’s a generic cute voice…=/

    Garchomps’s part was also pretty funny.

    This episode just confirmed why I like Jessie and Conway so much. Great characters with tons of potential of entertainment. Sure, Aoi should return. She's a great character too.

    Heh, maybe Aoi will be a recurring character.

    Quite odd, they had Fully evolved pokemon for the race, Garchomp, Shiftry, Hippowdon, Blastoise, Camerupt and Ash got Spoink. Talk about luck of the draw.

    This episode was great, epecially the part with the Garchomp, he's so cute ^^.Yet again Conway made me laugh so much, they way he taunted Jessie then ran with his hands in a rather strange postition and then the way he appeared in front of Hikari and Takeshi on floatzel then sank again. ^^

    During the tag arc I didn't like Conway, but in this one the guy was fun to watch. Plus points for making Jessie run away screaming.

    Oh Musalina-sama, you and your new stalker friend are the stuff that worthwhile week-long waits are made of. Specifically, over-the-top dollops of 'cute' and the art of appearing from the shadows. Check on the back of any Mars bar wrapper, I can assure you they exist.


    Brilliant episode, even if it was slightly pokémon-athon in execution. Regardless, I'm tempted to say it was handled much better than that one, but I don't know. Should I? That'd be pretty risky to claim, 'ah reckon. Anyone willing to beat me senseless for suggesting such a thing? Heracross, where art thou?

    Best parts were definately:

    -Garchomp, not doing a particulary good job of living up to it's so-called pseudo legendary status. But, as we all know, imperfections are what make one perfect.
    It's also nice to see that thing actually flying like the dex claims it can. Though considering it's a land shark, you can't help but wonder 'why?'.

    -Jes-uhh, Musalina's fury as she stomped over to Magikarp's landing spot, grabbing it and flailing it around in a fit of frustration, before being whipped across the water like a flat stone thrown by a bored kid on a hot summers day down at the beach. Long winded.

    -Everyone's favourite Hikari stalker creeping the absolute kawaii out of the aforementioned self-proclaimed idol.

    -The fact that, despite her team lost and she had come within inches of winning the triathalon, Musalina still got a happy ending out of this. I'll be honest - I'd been expecting her to blow her cover, lose the worship of her fanbase, or something that would dampen this entire experience, but no; they did good, gave her a meal, and a troupe of adoring fans that still loved her to itty bitty pieces. Bless~

    -Aoi is adorable, even if she has confused numerous viewers when it comes to the all important subject that is gender. I don't know why I think she is, but I'm afraid that's what I now believe.

    -Muku.ARMPIT MASSAGE

    Quick question; What the hell is it Jessie has been adding to the end of her sentences under the guise of Musalina? Seriously, it's been bugging the heck out of me for weeks now.

    Even after it was made clear she was female during her intro? Damn, Junko-san has a knack of sounding like the opposite gender of her characters (and the fact Aoi's being played by Naruto's seiyuu is hilarious in itself, given that these two series have to take turns doing hour specials)...>_>

    It was just gliding along, though struggling because he was carrying a boy on his back ^^

    I don't know where this came from - I've heard it several times now - but Aoi's seiyuu is not Junko Takeuchi, it's Miho Hino ^^

    I have nothing to say about this episode since pretty much everything has already been covered by other people, but add me to the people who LOVED this episode. Conway's laughs...:D

    "~riiin" is, unless I've missed some crazy new trend, a pretty meaningless speech quirk that Musalina has to come off as 'cute', similar to May's "~kamo" and Shaymin's "~deshu".

    Edit: Pardon me, seems like it's "~rii", not "~riin" x)
