    Default Mystery At The Lighthouse! (013)

    Mystery At The Lighthouse!

    Disheartened by Brock & Misty saying all Ash's Pokemon just joined him, Ash runs off and catches a Krabby. They find out they are in the middle of nowhere so they go to a Lighthouse where Bill lives. After talking about Pokémon, Bill mentions a large Pokémon that he talks to. Will Bill meet that Pokémon?

    I just recently watched this episode and I thought it was really good...

    But I found it really disconcerting how Professor Oak compared Ash's goals/victories to Gary... I mean yes Ash did a whole heap of bragging or whatever you call it, but I always believed it to be one of insecurities, Ash doesn't have much confidence in himself deep down, so that's why he tried to act real tough...

    I thought this was a good episode, though I knew all along that the 'big Pokemon' was Dragonite.

    Yeah me too, Dragonite looked so sweet in the shadowy way it, and I love how it attacked TR!

    My first episode... I hated so much that Dragonite's unshadowed debut was as Mewtwo's postboy. I loved the Orange Islands ep though.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    Read the prologue for the Kanto arc HERE

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    You mean this was the first episode you've ever seen? It's my first episode. I remember seeing Team Rocket for the first time...

    I don't really remember, but back then I probably had no idea about the irregularity in Dragonite's size.

    I loved this episode! Dragonite was so cute...

    But I noticed one MAJOR flaw that I'm thinkin of making a thread about.

    So do you all agree that Bill met Dragonite, yes? And he says "it's the only one of it's kind...". Surely if Dragonite was well known and people had them then he'd have known what he was seeing, correct? Or was it just that Dragonite wasn't discovered, like all the Johto and Hoenn pokémon?

    (this is actually going somewhere)

    I think he may have been speaking of how BIG it was. That dragonite was huge!

    Yeah, there is something up with that Dragonite.
    I seemed kind of violent when TR just shot Dragonite with their bazookas.

    Why did Bill have a Mewtwo on his wall (or was it on his door?)? Why does he know about TR's little project. He really is in the know.

    I liked how Krabby cut up Ash's stick. I also like the scene with Ash's first six Pokemon.

    A decent episode, we get to learn about only having six Pokemon at a time.

    8.3/10
    Yeah!

    Heh, Ash's reaction to having Krabby disappear was great, as well as how Oak might be cooking him XD. Brock and Misty dancing was rather odd(I'm gonna start a new shipping here*Gymleader Shipping!1!11!111111!!!!*), as was Dragonite's size. An explanation for that mutation would be great, but I doubt anything of the sort shall happen. And, this is one of the episodes where James shows his decent side. I love eppies like that.

    Overall rating:
    8.6 out of 10!!
    A Hoenn-class filler, IMO. Too bad the rest of Kanto is not as pleasant......

    I never understood the mystery pokemon. Is it a dragonite? Dragonite isn't suppose to be that big. I always thought that there would be another episode about it

    We've seen several Pokemon that are bigger than they're supposed to be. The giant Onix in the Bruno ep, the giant Tentacruel in "Tentacool and Tentacruel", the giant Alakazam, Jigglypuff, & Gengar in "The Ancient Puzzle of Pokemopolis", the     Spoiler:
    , etc. The Dragonite was simply the first giant Pokemon we've seen.

    EDIT:WTH? The spoiler tags didn't work...why are the tags so picky about whether you type in caps or not?

    Not a bad episode, but there were a few things that bugged me - namely, the Mewtwo image on Bill's wall, the size of the Dragonite, and the fact that Jessie and James claim to be afraid of heights in this episode, yet they have no problem traveling by hot air balloon. Seemed a little weird to me.

    God bless Toonami. I got to see two of my favourite eps again today, including this one...

    Dragonie was such a cutie in this ep. It was moments like this (like when I had no idea what a Dragonite was) that made the animé for me. Like back when I was ten or whatever I hadn't a breeze what a Dragonite looked like, since the games weren't available yet. And there was just such an air of mystery back then. Granted, the whole Mewtwo on his door was a bit of a slip, but they probably hadn't planned the movie at this stage anyway.

    I also really liked the character of Bill. I thought his voice was superb (we never hear it again like, we rarely get that kind of unique voice) and just everything he said made me nod my head! James proved himself a decent human being here, while my Jessie is as heartless as ever. Will Bill make Dragonite pay for the lighthouse since he smashed it up? =D

    It would be something to catch that Dragonite. Just imagine it... And it's song was cute as heck. I just love that lil' guy! Well ok, maybe not TOO little...

    Oh, and the intro of Krabby! What a champ. It also made me think of something... Ash's Krabby was less than half the size of Gary's, right? does that mean that when it evolves Gary's Kingler would be twice the size of Ash's? Imagine THAT crabhammer attack. Or guillotine for that matter.

    EDIT: I also thought it was funny the way the cloud at the end of the episode was shaped like a Dragonite. Very cheeky.

    I just thought of something maybe that giant Dragonite, was like a Pokemonopolis Pokemon like Gengar, Alakazam, and Jigglypuff were? That would at least explain the size.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS.

    Yikes, I'm really glad they changed the format of the show after this. The recaps were getting annoying, even if they were good for people tuning into the show for the first time. At least later recaps were just limited to two- and three-parters after this. I'm also glad that this is one last episode where basically nothing happens, and the episode just ends with a thud. I don't mean it's like later fillers, it's just the episode has no real plot, no action, no crisis of the day, no nothing. Ash catches Krabby, they learn a bit more about pokemon (and Bill's at 140 pokemon off and counting). Overall, not a great episode for me.

    i found that this ep was very odd... just the background and music. it ended up being a little freaky with the fog and this 'monster'. Not one of my favourite. 5/10

    I don't get it. Misty claimed that all the pokemon followed him, but he started with Pikachu and caught Butterfree, Pidgeotto and Bulbasaur properly, while Squirtle and Charmander just joined him. Lousy lines from Misty might I add.

    With Butterfree, it was just a lucky catch. And Satoshi treated the bug so well that it liked him. Pidgeotto was his only true capture, if you think about it. Bulbasaur chose to battle him.

    Eh, aside from the other problems with this episode already stated, my other problem with this was that Bill talked a little too much. He grated on my nerves. I'm sorry for saying so. Please don't shoot me.

    Eh...just had to get that out.

    Well, it was one of the earliest episodes of the series, so they had to have an explanation somewhere for the basics of pokemon. Somebody had to get the job of explaining the long and dull parts of Pokemon, while getting the more exciting things out of the way first, I guess. I find it interesting how he said back then about only 150 known pokemon, and there's a HUGE wall of pokemon images (though of course only the Kanto ones are visible in closeups).

    I did like Bill, though. He just had a charming voice.
