I felt so bad for Pachirisu watching this episode. Interesting that it wasn't too obvious that it was an electricity buildup making it sick, unlike the times Pikachu was sick with the same thing (I think in retrospect his "cold" in "Sparks Fly for Magnemite" in season one was the same thing, since he's cured by releasing electricity). And at least it was a star episode with Brock, and would later be important in the "Trials and Adulations" episode of season 12.

My Shinies: NEW!! 5/5
Filler, with Ash and Dawn using the skills they've learned from Brock to help heal Pachirisu.
It was enjoyable, because Pachirisu is a cute Pokemon. I would have liked to see more of Brock, instead more character development for Ash and Dawn.
At least we know that Brock is a helpful character, despite the fact that he rarely does anything. 7/10

This episode really showed the importance of Brock, because without him, Ash would be totally helpless. I also thought them forgetting Gliscor was pretty funny. Overall this was an alright episode.
Not a bad episode, poor Pachirisu looked quite sick (As someone else mentioned like Pikachu in Sparks fly for Magnemite, except Pikachu had a cold and Pachirisu had a fever didn't it?).
It was interesting to see Dawn and Ash trying to fix it, with the rumors of Brock leaving at the end of Sinnoh this episode makes me wonder what will Ash do if this situation pops up again and he's not near a Nurse Joy or Jenny or a professor like when Pikachu was sick in Hoenn.
I thought this was an alright episode. Kind of reminds us that Brock is still useful in some ways. I was however disappointed with Zapdos' appearance. It was kind of just thrown in there.

Feel sorry for Pachirisu
A solid episode. There are some really memorable scenes here, though they are not related to the main plot of Pachirisu's illness (which, in a way, is bad, since I think ideally the best scenes should be centered around the plot). Gliscor is the real star in this one, with its dejection at being overlooked by Ash in favor of Staravia to get Brock, and then later on its collision into Brock and attempt to act out Pachirisu's illness (Pikachu has competition now!). Croagunk also has a really strong appearance, despite only really being shown a few seconds at a time, maybe 3 times in total.
My favorite scene is the one where Dawn finds Ash asleep, and wakes him up, hands on hips, with a critical tone of voice. Ash immediately flashes her a sly grin, and says he probably shouldn't have fallen asleep. I think this is one of the best Ash-Dawn interactions of the series, and one of the reasons I enjoy pearlshipping. In fact, this exact same scene is used again in the last episode of dp, though then Dawn is doing that more to tease Ash than to criticize him (and he "teases" her back, at the very end of the episode, as he's on the boat to leave Sinnoh). I think this scene really gives Ash a type of personality. Maybe before, if something like this were to happen, I think this would be to show a fault in Ash, as if to say he isn't working hard enough as a trainer aspiring to win a Pokemon league should. You know, Paul probably doesn't sleep on the job. But that's not what this scene is trying to say about Ash, not at all. The way he's smiling...to me, there's alot of confidence in that smile. He's SURE he's going to figure this out, and he's taking it seriously. But he's also having a little fun along the way. He's enjoying what he's doing. And that's amazing to me, and something that I admire. So, I think we're supposed to laugh at this scene, and not be overly critical; Ash is going to find a way, but just by having this little scene here, it makes Ash feel more like someone that's a real person. And that's a good thing. As a sidenote, I think this is also one of the charms of pearlshipping, if there are any, that Ash can have these type of scenes with Dawn. There's no reason at all for him to take Dawn's criticisms too seriously, and he can laugh them off; you know, if Brock were saying this, Ash wouldn't have just gotten off without some serious lecture (Brock drives the pt home about caring for Pokemon to an excessive degree; as soon as TR is blasted off, he picks up right where he left off). Pikachu, as well (Pikachu turns its back on Ash at the beginning of the episode, and doesn't seem to care for Ash's apology).
This is the 2nd episode nearly back to back showing Dawn being brought to tears over not taking care of her pokemon properly. Maybe since the first one was not so well-thought out, this episode was an attempt to show a more polished storyline. But, this is a little too much of the same thing, and I don't think it really does anything for her character. I don't think Dawn's character really progresses from where it is right now until one of her pokemon evolves, and she struggles to get it to obey her.
This episode was ok... Interesting how Dawn and Ash were trying to take care of the Pokemon themselves for awhile while Brock went out. The way they were giving baths/sprays to the Pokemon not weakened by water, and brushing the rest was cool to see. It was funny when Ash turned the water on too cold for Pachirisu and to see Pachirisu's reaction. It was funny when Brock tried to carry Gliscor on his back when he realized it wasn't able to fly without wind. He ends up leaving him on the road... It was cool how Brock used metal rods to release the trapped electricity inside Pachirisu's body. It was great to see Zapdos randomly appearing in this episode. Nothing better than seeing my favorite Electric type making an appearance.

The episode was ok. The only part I laughed at was the ending when Ash realized they went through the whole episode and forgot to get Gliscor......
This episode is my second favorite! I love it when Gliscore is telling Brock what's going on, and Brocks like 'uuuuuuuuuhhhhh' and then he gets left behind. and then brock tells them how to take care of thier pokemon.
Notice it says most people like me.

I liked the part when Gliscor got left behind. ^_^
