    100/10

    Without a doubt the best episode ever, Tracey played a huge role without Ash and Misty eating up screentime from him (but they also weren't just in the background), he captures Scyther (where are you Scyther), Jessie gets her hair cut by a Scyther swarm, and the ending with Ash trying to get Tracey to do it correctly was funny, too! Can't these writers do anything wrong?

    I'm glad Tracey got a Scyther. It's hilarious when it cut Jessie's hair, she's looking funny with short hair.

    Tracey's Scyther was simply bada**! It's a shame he wasn't featured that much in the series...
    Overall good Tracey episode...I'd give it a 7/10

    Why did misty say that venonat isn't a bug type?

    I still can't get over it when Team Rocket have mowhawks at the end of this episode. Too funny!
    I never thought I would see Tracy being the one to acquire a new Pokemon.

    I was amazed that Tracey's Venonat and Marill were actually out and about here. I liked the premise of the episode and all as well, but seeing Tracey's concern for Scyther was odd. He rarely got the spotlight in OS, so maybe I just wasn't used to seeing him bond with a Pokemon. Anyway, TR's hair fiasco made me cackle.

    I still remember being angry as all heck that Ash didnt catch my favorite pokemon, god damn scyther is such a badass design.

    Kind of a shame they had to nerf the species by making it so old, but whatever.

    Wow I wasn't expecting Tracy to get the Scyther when I first saw this episode cuz it seemed too stoic for him ha ha. I liked how Misty's bug phobia kicked in here however and Ash wanting to catch a 2nd Caterpie was strange. ^^

    Tracey did nothing in the islands arc, so him getting an effing Scyther of all things was bad writing.

    Well Ash had a full team so he couldn't have gotten it, and Misty was afraid of bug types so she couldn't have caught it either. I would've liked if James had got it, but Tracy was a good alternative I think.

    It's not like anyone had to catch it at all, though.

    True but I feel that the cast's teams were kind of stale at this point, so a change was needed and if it had to be Scyther then at least it was a strong pokemon and not a typical cute one. ^^;

    I liked how this episode's island was a haven for Bug types and Scyther cutting Jessie's hair with his scythes was hilarious. 8.5/10

    My favorite scene: Jessie's new haircut. I liked seeing her like that, so too bad her hair grew back. Tracey getting a new Pokemon was wonderful.

    I normally detest Tracey episodes, but this one wasn't too bad. The fact that the older Scyther lost its battle to a younger one was nicely set up in order for Tracey to capture it, and I loved the way Team Rocket did their motto here with regards to Jessie losing her hair.

    Murcott Island being some kind of sanctuary for Bug-types was fantastic, although I did feel sympathy for Kasumi since she hated insects. Kenji's interest in the injured Strike was great since we hardly ever got to see him be the star of an episode, and I liked watching Musashi get her hair chopped off by Strike, too.

    This episode was great when it comes to Team Rocket. Jessie getting her hair cut off was so funny. Though you feel bad for her, it's great when she goes psycho on the Scyther looking for revenge. I also loved Meowth's huge eyes when he sees her with her hair cut.

    Here's another episode I hadn't seen before getting the DVD. Nice character arc with the two Syther. I liked seeing them come to terms with each other & working together to beat Team Rocket. The animation also seems a bit better than normal. They probably put more effort into the animation since this episode introduced a new character.

    I think that since we saw Jessie with her new haircut, that the animators went all out with their animation budget here.

    While the two Strike teaming up was a critical moment in this episode, the whole "adversaries finding a mutual enemy and defeating the Rocket-dan" turning point was very trite at this point. I would've preferred a different, unique resolution to Strike's dilemma.
