    Ah yes... Island of Giant Pokemon... This episode was one of the most memorable episodes that I ever had of this show. I remember seeing the Giant Charizards, Venusaurs, and giant Blastioses. My favorite part was the part when Team Rocket approached Pikachu, but when it turned over and moved, it was a giant Pikachu from the island. Team Rocket freaked from the Giant Pikachu. This episode was funny and memorable. I'll never forget the day I last saw this episode...

    This episode was great. I loved the idea of subtitling what the Pokemon were saying. Kanto was indeed the best arc in Pokemon. Most of the really important stuff was already mentioned, so I'l just give it a rating.

    10/10
    Yeah!

    Team Rocket also had pretty good moments and lines here too. Krabby pinching their legs was funny, and when they were escaping Robo-Moltres and smacked into the sign...

    *they smash into the sign*
    Jessie: Good thing we hid behind this sign.
    James: Maybe our luck's turning around.
    *they collapse to the ground*
    Together: It's a good sign!
    You know, I always suspected that "It's a good sign" was a dub-added line, and it was - replacing their usual "Ya na kanji". No wonder it felt so lame.

    I've really changed my mind on this episode - it wasn't half bad at all. In fact, they should do more episodes that focus on the exploits of Pikachu and the others. It'd be great to bring back the subtitles, for one. As you mentioned, seeing what Fushigidane, Hitokage, and Zenigame were saying allowed a little more insight to their personalities.

    This was one of the best episodes ever. It was very unique to have subtitles, I liked the twist that the giant Pokemon were robots and they were on a tour island, and it had a lot of humor and action. It was also part of a good arc.

    The only flaw: Near the end, Charmander goes into the water with the other Pokemon, something it couldn't actually do.

    I still love this episode, though, and I remember it fondly.

    I keep thinking they should have done the pokemon translations on-screen when they did "Turning Over a Nuzleaf" too, since that episode was pokemon-heavy too.

    Anyway, this was a pretty funny episode. I like the part where Bulbasaur says he has no family. I also love Team Rocket telling Ash to hand over Pikachu and then backpedalling when they see the giant Pikachu behind them (LOL).

    Nice episode, it was surprising that the giant Pokémon were robots.

    Most likely, it was just to introduce us to slowpoke and slowbro.

    One thing I never got was why was Giovanni behind
    it? Was he trying to pick up some extra cash by making
    a tourist attraction or was it to hide the all the founding
    for team rockets opperations.

    There really wasn't anything on the island for them to hide.

    the whole robot thing was pretty lame imo. Slowpoke and Slowbro where pretty random as said before. Rather pointless epi imo 3/10

    I love this episode, its one of the best imo. It was the first time we (sorta) was Zapdos and Moltres, and the subtitles for the Pokemon was awesome.

    Very cool only it's weird that the Pokemon didn't attack. The subtitles are cool too.

    I'm sure this episode gets enough praise as it is, but it truly was a masterpiece. Having the subtitles underneath really gave the pokemon personality. Something they should've done in other episodes but didn't. I also liked the mechanical pokemon, superb episode.

    This episode is still my favourite episode ever. Yes I agree we need subtitles more (that's one of the reason's it was funny). We even got to see personality for all the pokemon that we can't see without subtitles such as charmander having a very caring personality. I think the only flaw here was having a giant Pikachu and when everyone fell in the water shouldn't it have affected charmander. Either then thos two things this episode was perfect in so many ways.

    This episode is one of the funniest I have ever seen. I like the Pokemon subtitles. When I was little, the giant Pokemon scared me but I realized they were mechanical. I enjoyed watching the roller-coaster ride in this episode.

    I just noticed...the Pokemon subtitles sort of remind me of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon. In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Pokemon can actually talk to each other a lot. In this episode, the Pokemon talk to each other a lot, except it's with subtitles.

    This episode was nearly perfect. It had giant robots, roller coasters, and Pokemon Subtitles.

    Squirtle made this episode for me. "Maybe they got eaten by wild Pokemon."

    It is a real shame they never made another episode like this.

    I mean they have, but they don't have any subtitles. :/

    Why don't they do ones like this? This was probably the funniest episode ever, IMO.

    I Personally think that this is one of the best episodes. I love how the Pokemon had Subtitles. I just thought it was a really great episode. I LMAO when Squirtle did that "eaten" thing. XD
