Seeing how successful he has been since he quit Team Rocket, Jessie & James start considering whether their vocation has taken them as far as its going to. Meanwhile, Ash & Co. near to Team Rocket, enter a valley that's inhabited by an Alternate Coloured Metagross...

    Wow, I have a feeling I know the guy who set up this ramen shop in their honor, if I may guess, I would say the guy who gave James his magikarp in season 1. I loved it when James realeased magikarp then automatically became a gyarados. Maybe then team rocket would have finally caught pikachu. What do you think,serebii?

    Hehe.
    Ramen Shop.
    Whenever I see that, I picture a kid in headphones with a creepy silver-haired pedo named Josh, trying to help some fat ramen-shop owner get his business back on its feet.
    ...
    I really need to stop playing that game.

    Anyways, did anything of great importance happen, besides them not actually breaking up, like I knew they wouldn't?

    Don't think so.

    Yanmega and Seviper saving the day was neat though...well, saving James.
    And Wobbuffet used Counter.
    And then Meowth ended up saving the day.
    Also, it's really cute when Yanmega sits on Seviper's head. :P

    No gimmick review this time, but I'm promising something real good next week (spring break) for the farewell of a certain "bird of a feather".

    Like all TR-centered episodes, this was very solid, though I feel they could have done a bit more with it. While it would have been nice to see Jessie rack up a ribbon just to keep that plot moving, there was a lot else going on here (heck, it even ended abruptly). I was more hoping that Random-Filler-Man-from-TR's-Past (who was designed very flatly) would reveal some of the ongoings back at TR HQ, but he was dropped early in the episode.

    But holy sh*t, was that a Meowzy cameo in Meowth's fantasy? Upon a quick comparison with framegrabs of "Go West, Young Meowth", IT IS. Neglected TR Pokemon also got a chance to shine here, and looking into Metagross' computerized mind was awesome. Loved Meowth saving the day, with the return of his bazooka in true form. (Remember the hooplah in AG when everyone thought 4Kids would ban the Wynaut episode because of that bazooka? Good times.)

    It wasn't as emotional as some past TR outings, nor was the team in full "Badass Mode" like in DP092, but those who pegged this as a "boring filler" made complete asses of themselves, as always.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    This.

    The episode was good, but I felt it could have been so much better. As outlandish as everyone thought my whole idea of TR splitting up so that focus could be shifted to TG was, maybe something a little more tame could have happened. The way it seemed to flow for me was Meowth got pissed at Jessie and James and decided to go work at a noodle restaurant that just happened to be run by one of their former colleagues. Then Jessie decided to take a day off to practice some appeals. James, with nothing to do, decided to go battle and (maybe) capture a Metagross that was alternately colored (did those two guys in the episode mention that or something).

    It didn't seem like a break up episode compared to "The Ole Berate and Switch" from the BF saga. It felt more like 3 subplots strung together in an episode.

    I do have to admit it was very refreshing to have 95% of this episode dedicated to TR. I would have liked Jessie to have been in a contest, but then we'd be left wondering why Dawn didn't enter since they were nearby as well.

    Best part of the episode by far was Jessie coming to save the day. Megayanma kicked ***!

    I just watched the episode on youtube,and it was awesome! If only Team Rocket can catch that Metagross,they would be a lot powerful. Also,Jesse looks better when her hair is wet. And Staravia's gonna evolve in next episode!

    I would love, love, love to see TR actually disband for good; it'll be a huge load off of Ash's shoulders. Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are less than zero.

    Also, that shiny Metagross is powerful enough to possibly kill them, but it didn't, as I expected from a kid's anime...

    Haven't had the time to brose the forums much this past week, but I did get a chance to see this ep and found it full of cute moments. Oh James you sweet little moron, when a triangular sign has a big old ! next to a pokemon's picture it means stay the fudge away, not run right up to it!
    Anyone else struck by the similarities between Christopher and Mondo (of the Japanese-only CD drama "It's A White Tomorrow")? Both are brown-haired young men who look up to Jessie & James and called them Sempai/Master, express a desire to work with TR's Meowth, and have jobs in the food-service industry.
    I am NOT saying that Christopher = Mondo especially since they are given different names in Japan, Chris was Yusuke IIRC from when I youtube'd the original, but I do wonder if his design was as a reference to that CD.

    Wow, I loved the continuity to Meowth's former crushes:



    That's Meowzie, isn't it? And possibly May's Skitty?

    Why is Lopunny there? Meowth didn't crush on that Lopunny we saw, but I do love the continuity with the other two.

    Because it's possible Lopunny was a male in that episode.

    I don't know personally I found the episode average, it wasn't really anything to write home about.
    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.

    OR (!) the Lopunny in the Stylist episode never played a big role there.

    It only appear once talking to Buneary and another when it attacked. Ash and Dawn didn't even 'dex' it.

    You're gonna start some needless debates with that kinda talk around here, pal.

    Also, I kinda thought the episode was a bit dull...I mean, the part where Team Rocket fought Metagross was neat, but everything else was "eh". When they entered the Ramen Shop and suddenly I heard a loud voice yelling at them, for a second I thought it was gonna be that shop owner from the Hoenn League.

    So I assume that move our Big Friendly Giant Enemy Crab used to blast TR off was Meteor Mash or Gyro Ball?

    I didn't watch the episode, but by looking at the pics, it looks alright. But one thing I have to say is: Jessie looks much better with her hair down like it is after she got wet.

    I just started watching this OnDemand and I rewound to take a look at the still. Indeed, Jessie is rather strikingly pretty with her long hair down like that( and no I’m not perving on her, I’m not into females thank you very much). If it were dry and brushed, she could really make an impression at a contest if she wore it that way. And I don’t think it’s just the contrast between that and her normal styles, I think having it flowing and a little bit over her face makes you realize that she’s actually almost a cliché “pretty anime chick” but they go to great lengths to hide it.

    What was Metagross using when its eyes went all digital?

    Could it be Lock-On?

    I don't think so. Metagross can't learn Lock-On. Maybe that's how it sees the world, which is awesome.

    it was Gyro Ball,TR actually said that before getting "blasted off again"
    I don't think Metagross used Lock-on(he can't learn that attack as a matter of fact)
    It probably just used its super computer brain to calculate a successful attack pattern(yeah that pokemon is that freaking smart!)

    That's right, and since Meteor Mash is a punch, that obviously wasn't it.

    Metagross used what must have been Magnet Rise and then Psychic to pick up some rocks. James had Mime Jr. use Teeter Dance and Metagross got confused, but that caused those rocks to start flying everywhere. James freaked out, grabbed Mime Jr, and took off.

    Why did you even ask about Mime Jr's attack? It was obvious because it has used it several times before.
