    Default Tricks Of The Trade! (148)

    Tricks Of The Trade!

    On the way to Goldenrod City, Ash enters a town obsessed in trading. He gets approached by a guy who wants to trade his Wobbuffet, however Ash doesnt want to trade but says he will help him find a Pokemon to trade. Also theres a Tauros running Tournement there which Ash wants to enter. Will Ash win and find a Pokémon to trade for Benny's Wobbuffet?

    This episode changed Team Rocket's motto for the better! Although I do miss Lickitung, I like Wobbuffet better. Lol! Jessie didn't even know that she had traded Lickitung!
    The Tauros Tournament was good and Ash done great in it.

    Lickitung is my least favorite pokemon, heracross is also a least favorite, and Wobbuffet is obviously my favorite pokemon, so you can guess how much I love this episode. It may be only my *second*-favorite episode, but it still is one of the greatest episodes featuring lineup changes. Plus, I LOVE Wobbuffet!!!

    I guess it should be brought up that Wobbafett is only of Team Rocket's Pokemon to win against the twerps since "Ash catches a Pokemon".

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Did anyone notice how...depressed Wobba seemed to be when he was tagging along with Benny, and when it ended up with Team Rocket it seemed to open up and become much happier? And as he was about to be traded, Wobba seemed to put on a smile and let out an elated 'Wobb!'. Maybe I'm just reading into it much, but sometimes I wonder if Benny mistreated Wobbuffet as it certainly didn't seem all too happy being with him x.x;

    Well Jessie seems to mistreat it as well. But maybe you're right and Wobbuffet didn't like Benny because IIRC Benny was just training him so he could trade him.

    Wobbuffet is one of the best TR Pokemon ever! I wonder how Lickitung is being treated? But, I'm glad Jessie got Wobbuffet.

    It really is! I think Wobbuffet is just awesome.

    Do you think that we will ever see Lickitung again?

    With these writers, don't get your hopes up. I liked this episode, and it was sad to see Lickitung go.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS.

    One of the better Johto episodes for sure.It was nice that Jessie get Wobbuffet through trade with Benny in exchange for her Lickitung.Altough i miss sometimes Lickitung,he was a good member of her team and i wonder what happened with him.

    Anyway it was also nice to see Ash winning Tauros competition with one of his numerous Tauros and the addition of Magikarp Salesman was boonus aswell.His return for sure brought back memories from St.Anne episode from Kanto.

    All in all,in the end im glad that Wobbuffet become the mainstay of Team Rocket team.

    Even though I don't like Lickitung, I think it would be great to have it and Benny back again just to bring some closure.

    Yeah, this episode changed Team Rocket forever, as Wobbuffet pretty much became the mainstay of TR. I was a bit ****** off at first as I quite liked Lickitung, but then Wobbuffet grew on me, and the rest is history!

    I'll be honest, I seriously DID NOT like Wobbuffet when it first joined Team Rocket. But I guess after about 3-4 years watching episodes with it in it, I guess Wobbuffet kind of grew on me.

    I liked Lickitung too, but I love Wobbuffet. I didn't either at first but it grew on me (Wobbuffet looks like something that would grow on you XD).

    This episode is action-packed. Ash enter a Tauros Tournament, Jesse trades Lickitung, everyone wants Misty's Psyduck. A Must-See!

    I was re-watching this episode yesterday and have been wondering about this for the past few years...


    The guy to the right...Is he Tracey's long lost brother?

    I remember that guy from when I first saw the episode. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he was played by Ted Lewis (the one line he said sounded a lot like him).

    Anyways, this episode had its ups and downs. For one, it was slightly more entertaining than the other trading episode we had seen (Battle Aboard the St. Anne) because the Pokemon that was traded actually was kept by its trainer instead of traded back.

    But at the same time, I was sad to see Ash send his Heracross to Professor Oak's. Heracross was strong, and I don't believe it needed to be sent to Oak's. The only times we've seen it since are when Ash goes to Pallet Town, in the Johto League and
        Spoiler:- :
    At least it's better than that rumor I heard years ago that Ash gave Heracross to a student who was studying Pokemon. Then we would NEVER have seen it again.

    Great debut ep for Wobuffet, although I didn't like Ash sending his Heracross back to Prof. Oak's lab. He was just getting used to that bug pokemon.

    Those pokemon that Ash was offered for his Tauros, he could've used them. And why couldn't Ash just get a few more Tauros from Oak and trade them for the other pokemon.

    By the way, could anyone list the pokemon the Ash was offered? In the book adaptation I had, he was offered a Nidoqueen, Rhyhorn and Onix but I'm not sure that's what it was in the anime.
    I sometimes use "uber" Pokemon , I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    I just watched it again and Ash was offered the same, and Benny also thought about trading Wobbuffet for it as well.

    I thought it was a good episode 9 out of 10.

    the only good thing in this episode was Wobbuffet at Team Rocket. I don't think Lickitung should have been out of TR, Ash made the fool, he had lots of Tauros and he didn't trade anyone, and that Tauros race was awful, due to that is copied of an Spanish disgusting tradition related to bullfighting

    I'd like to see Lickitung again, just for continuity reasons. And because it was one of my favorite TR Pokemon.

    But anyways, this episode was clearly one of the best Johto episodes, which isn't really saying much but whatever. I loved this one.

    I agree, I like Lickitung was one of my favorite Team Rocket Pokemon too. I'd love to see it again, maybe we will now since TR is traveling Kanto again. Actually wait, the trade happened in Johto. Nevermind. Anyway, this episode was awesome, especially the Tauros competition.
