This episode was not my favourite, but I thought it was okay. I love fossil Pokemon, so I liked seeing all those Kabuto fossils. Other parts of the episode I found really weird, though, like how the fossils came to life in the moonlight. I also found Kabuto's glowing eyes to be quite creepy when I was younger. O_o

The Kabuto in their fossil form creeped me out. The episode was mainly meh though. Ash and Tracey were especially annoying at the begining of the episode begging to help them and stuff. The reporter didn't bother me and neither did Nurse Joy or the old man so that's a plus for this episode.

Them Kabuto were quite creepy. I wasn't overly enjoying this episode, I much preferred that 'fossil episode' from the first series. The reporter was quite annoying. I think Team Rocket needed more air time in this one!

This episode was creepy with all those Kabutos, I never liked them. LOL Nurse Joy was there carrying the Kabuto fossil and the red moon was really ominous & scary. There were questions left unanswered as well.

Great episode! Kabuto is cute! Nice to see a crapload of Kabuto! The reporter was pretty funny. One of the worst episodes of the Original Series, which means it's awesome. 8/10.

This episode is really mysterious. Perfect for ancient Pokémon. I remember watching this a long while ago and this episode always made me really fascinated with Pokémon again, just when I felt it became kind of repetitive, they come out with those really interesting episodes that gets your attention again. So, really solid episode.

It was creepy with the red moon, but that's what made it so good. The old guy did annoy me to be honest. I know he was trying to help, but he could have gotten the gang killed while doing it. Yay! Staryu was used.

This episode was kinda creepy, It was nice too see all those Kabuto in their fossil form. The Red Moon was ominous, I liked how those Kabutos were swimming towards the moonlight to find a safe home.

I watched this episode again last night and it slayed so hard. It's definitely one of my favorite Orange Islands episodes; it was just plain creepy in parts and really intense especially during the last five minutes when the island started breaking apart. I also laughed when James was getting tickled by a Kabuto, and the way one of them just casually popped the balloon was funny too. I loved the ending when all the Kabuto went to find a new home; my favorite BGM played during that scene. I really loved this episode.

This episode was definitely, so far in this season, the creepiest and most intense in some parts.

This was kind of a random episode especially near the end when the red moon made the Kabuto awaken and the island sank into the sea. I enjoyed how everyone worked together to get off the island before the disaster tho.

Lol what a crack episode. I liked seeing Kabuto have some importance here because up till now it only had a small appearance in the Aerodactyl episode...

I liked seeing Kabutos doing something as well even tho in my opinion it would've been twice as interesting if we had seen at least one evolve into Kabutops during the Team Rocket balloon scene hee hee.

I thought that the crimson moon scenes were amazing and it's just too bad that we only saw Kabuto and not more fossil Pokemon here. 7/10

I would've liked to see an Aerodactyl here, but the Kabuto were good enough. I liked how the old man was trying to scare every one away.

He almost killed people tho, like when he pushed that huge boulder. His only redeeming quality was that he told everyone how to escape the island by building rafts. ^^;

This was a great episode because even though it was filler, it was more intense than most episodes. The Kabuto resurrection that happened when the moon turned red was great to watch, especially when they accidentally popped the Rocket-dan's balloon. The sinking island imagery itself was really compelling.

This was an interesting episode because it raises so many questions that are unanswered, like why were the Kabuto all together on that island anyway, and why were they in hibernation? :x
