    This is another one of those third season episodes that I'm not all that fond of because nothing really happens in it. It did have a few good moments- Brock thinking one sunflora is on steroids, the debut of Meowth's sunflora costume, Meowth helping with Sonrisa's sunflora by translating for it- but othewise this episode isn't all that great.

    This is one of my favorite episodes. Meowth was pretty funny doing a Sunflora imitation. Also, I love when Ash's Chikorita helps Pikachu break the mirrors (which makes Sunflora's head grow big) by bumping into him as he uses thunderbolt to break the mirrors.

    I didn't understand why TR didn't bother to steal the Sunflora and went for noodles instead.

    A nice feel good episode coming off of Charizard leaving Ash's team. I got a laugh out of Misty springing Meowth then bossing him around.

    The wackiest thing in this episode is when Meowth dressed up in a Flora costume to compete in that contest. Anyway, it doesn't know some moves from a Sunflora.

    This episode was okay... Sunflora first deubt wasn't really that bad. I loved Team Rocket (especially Meowth) in this episode! ~Noodles~

    ^ What she said. Sunflora are rather boring. One of the stupidest fillers ever.

    I liked this episode. I like Sunfloras a lot..mainly because i like all grass pokemon I laughed at the part where Brock says that the Sunflora is probably on steroids. And Meowth's Sunflora costume was great. Although, I would have expected there to be more then two contestents in the contest, excluding Team Rocket.

    I do not do competitive battling and I really do not have any desire to. I also do not go out of my way seeking for shinies because I never really understood why they were so great anyways. All I truely enjoy pokemon contests, breeding, and in-game battling.

    I think grass pokemon are the greatest ever and I take great pride in the ones I have raised. I also think that Chikorita is the most adorable pokemon ever!


    If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:

    It was nice to see a good episode right before the gym battle saga. I loved it, the town itself was so green and peaceful, perfect for a Grass type episode.

    I loved how cheerful all the Sunflora were when they were let outside of their greenhouse to enjoy the sprinklers and sun. Though that one "emo" Sunflora ruined it for me. How can a happy species with a grin on their face have a sad member?

    The Contest at the end reminded me of a Pokemon Contest like we have now. Meowth as a Sunflora was CUTE! 9/10

    Sunflora's debut was really good. It has managed to give a good impression for the future, at least for me. Meowth also got the most screentime, but people are usually don't pay attention to this.

    Alright.....is it just me, or was it a perverted joke at the very beginning of the episode when Misty told Brock out of absolutely nowhere, "She's not going to give you water if she already thinks that you're wet." Or something along the lines of that, right after Brock is done introducing himself to Sonrisa in his usual flirtatious way.

    I tried to figure out other possible meanings for this and listened to it twice, but it sounded the same both times and at the time Brock was not drenched with any water or anything, so I can't think of any other explanation.

    Is it just me that sees it this way? O.o

    Sunflora episode. Not one of my favorite Pok&#233;mon and not one of my favorite episodes. It's actually one of the worst episodes in my opinion. I did laugh at Brock's joke about steroids though.

    Didn't really like this episode. It was cool seeing Sunflora for the 1st time. Meowth looked hilarious in the fake Sunflora outfit. That 1 Sunflora was huge!

    9/100
