    I was a bit confused as to where this thread was at first . . . I didn't notice the new subforum.

    Anyway - hopefully Chimchar really will be used in Byron's Gym battle. It should be, but the writers don't always do things that make sense. Now all it has to do is become a Monferno by then.

    Not really much about this episode stands out to me . . . with the exception of Rotom shocking Piplup at the end. It's probably mean of me, but . . . LOVE IT. Thank you, misplaced aggression.

    Last episode was a highly-important period of not only the clash of the titans, but further evidence toward movie continuity and a main cast evolution.
    This episode, on the other hand, was a completely meaningless filler that served absolutely no purpose in advancing the plot other than advertising the new "Forme" gimmick that has hit the franchise.

    Holy crap was this a much better episode.

    It wasn't amazing, but it was certainly fun. At times, it almost felt like an episode of Scooby-Doo that was actually humorous in this day and age. Rotom in its pure form is certainly smaller than I expected. I actually really like Taguchi, who I've missed for the past 25 episodes. Not extraordinary, but certainly a high-quality AD.

    The similarities between Washer Rotom (I refuse to learn its "Forme" names) and Muku.BIRD went well beyond the voice, with Washer Rotom even going as far as colliding head-first with the doorway. Add in the fact that Rotom can turn into a lawn mower, and I think you've got a plausible audition for the role.

    It baffles me how nimrods still complain about fillers, given not only their lesser amount nowawdays, but how many of these "fillers" are highly superior to episodes that are truly significant. Case in point: Today's airings.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Would this be the first time we see Piloswine's feet?

    Even only being able to understand about one word in twenty, this was a giggle-fest from start to finish. Maybe the dub won't mess around with it too much?

    this episode was HILARIOUS
    I actually found myself laughing OUT LOUD at numerous parts!!
    The Brock-Fridge part was so funny. So.. So funny. And how Rotom would chase after them, first Ash, in mower-form, then Dawn, in fan form, then Ash AND Dawn in oven form... man, just too good! And I also loved the part when Jessie, James, and Meowth were all hiding their food, only to have Rotom eat all of it...
    and the part when Pika went after the toaster...

    man, this was a good episode. I was a little nervous, because I didn't really like the Darkrai/Cresselia episode (minus Swinub's evolution). this definitely recovered and made it a good hour-long special.
    And next week's should be a good episode as well, because we finally get some overdue Grotle training.
    All we need now is for Gliscor to shine in some way, and we'll be equal in terms of Ash shafting Pokemon. Maybe Muku could use some more screen time as well..
    Long Live Gliscor

    Hehe, it looks hilarious. xD I can't wait to watch it later on...and wow, Piloswine is like. Massive. o-O


    For some reason, that had me laughing quite a bit...somewhat of a "FAIL" situation.
    I'm currently watching it, can't wait! Rotom is gonna be hilarious!!

    Dawn finally has a Pokemon that isn't small and cute, that alone is cause for celebration.
    And knocks her down every so often too. Ironic how she neglects it, and now that it's... "evolved" she's gonna use it? Oy...

    I'm sure the dub would keep something as simple as a musical cue.
    Maybe some sort of Jazzy thing for it. I'm sure they'd do something to keep the comedy. The dub's at least has that for it.

    I thought for sure Pryce's Piloswine had visible feet.

    And now to watch. Edits shall appear whenever I find something amusing.

    To start off: Grotle "pummels" Ash, Piloswine "pummels" Dawn. Oh this is already fun.

    edit: am I the only one who's unsure if they'd be better off using a boat between islands? The masses of bridges just looks...off. I don't know why, it just does.

    Random miner creeps out Ash and co. by saying the house is haunted... oh sure, anything sounds creepy when you use that type of look.

    Rotom have a tasty treat at James's expense. Guess he never figured a vacant oven would have a sweet tooth . Followed by Jessie, who never thought a fridge might like their food frozen first . And Meowth, who finds... a cookie? And apparently that oven still had "room" for more, hehehe. 'Course, they each find their beloved food missing and instantly blame each other. Oh well, at least they fed Rotom.

    The door to the mansion ominously opens: who's next? LOL!

    O_O the mansion actually looks suspiciously like the one in Eterna forest... well that's mildly clever.

    Pikachu proves that he is the most "flexible" of them all. He can even imitate a converted Rotom. However, Rotom has a taste for Rodent (even though, the oven door isn't Rotom's mouth)!

    Hehe, Slash proof glass! Guess that "Yokan" stuff must be that tasty if they went through all that trouble to lock it up.

    Oh god, now it seems that whenever an opportunity to cook arises, Brock has another "mode". Oh well, at least this one won't get him hurt ^^.

    Anyone know the reasoning behind Grotle tackling Ash down in the beginning of the episode? It seemed pretty random to me, but then again, I don't understand Japanese.

    Oh god, the best part was watching Ash and Dawn getting attacked by Rotom, questioning their sanity over whether or not they really were being attacked by a murderous lawnmower or a vicious fan, then being repeatedly chased by the other ones.

    To top if off, that scene where Rotom possesses the fridge everytime Brock turns his back was gold! True gold! And I called it!!! I so knew they were going to have Ash and Dawn freak out when Rotom was there, and Brock would question their sanity as well. Then Rotom randomly phazes in and out, until Brock himself see's it. Then all hell breaks loose.
    Followed by being "flushed" out of the house with both Ash and Dawn zapping that thing to hopefully get it's mischevious "spark" fixed.

    Yeah, right. Gotta love it when it zaps Piplup. I think everyone loved that.

    And it seems that Brock has this godlike talent for cooking; he uses that recipe and creates perfect Yokan... I'm thinking it's like fudge.

    Wow, I knew I'd love it! It's a real shame that many other fillers aren't quite like this. And I'm glad I bothered to look for it so I could watch it. 'Course, I didn't want to pass off an opportunity like this! And I might do the same with the next batch; this arc looks to be fun!

    You have to admit though, that mansion looked an awful lot like the one in Eterna; especially the area with the staircase.

    it would have been REALLY cool if they had a scene where Ash and Dawn saw the Butler and the little girl. Maybe when they first get off the elevator, they could have looked down the hall and seen it, then they could have gotten distracted, then when they looked back, the butler was gone, just like in the games.

    I like the ending, where Rotom at first seems sorry for pestering the gang, then suddenly reverts to being a wise guy. Loved the gang's afro hair too.

    This has to be one of my favorite episode (Second to Sandshrew locker.) Rotom was funny but i wish they made this a two parter so we can see more of Rotom. like what happen to Dawn, Ash and Brock (for a guy with short hair, he has the biggest Afro.) but there one thing i don't like and that is the placing. Why couldn't they put this in that forest? seem kind odd that they do Rotom here don't you think.

    Funny and great episode, certainly an episode worth watching.

    Long time no see to Professor Oak in an episode besides his encyclopedia thing at the end of the episode. It's good to know that phone calls to him is something that the writers have not forgotten yet. And then, Grotle and Piloswine jump at their respective trainers. I found that really funny, and I thought that was a good scene.

    Rotom was cool also. A mischief Pokemon who likes to scare off people and cause people to think that they were halucinating. Speaking of which, the one with Brock was absolutely hilarious. Also, near the end, when it tricked the three that it was "sorry", it wasn't in actuality. And just as well, the hairdo design that was portrayed after they were shocked by the electricity was also hilarious.

    Excellent episode, definitely one that I could remember well. I like the preview for the next episode. Probably will be a good one.

    Called it. Looks like my wish has been granted! =D

    Anyways, I loved the part where Rotom kept switching behind Brock! XD

    It will be, that's why Ash was giving it some training at the beginning. He was saying that the Canalave Gym is Steel type so he'll use Chimchar in it.

    It was great to watch this episode quickly after DP 104 because there's such a big contrast between them. This episode was simply outstanding.

    Poor hilarity and great animation. Everything was perfect for me.

    I love that both Grotle and Piloswine showed personality. Love them both.
