    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)

    Alright the first appearance of Jessie's Wobbuffet in what was an excellent episode. Nice to see one of Ash's many Tauros get used again even if it is only for a couple of episodes. As for Lickitung nice to see it go to Benny who willl treat it properly unlike Jessie, it's to bad that Lickitung wasn't featured more in the series as Wobbuffet is but I guess thats the luck of the draw.

    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.

    I hate this EP. It gave Jessie Wobbuffet and she lost her perfectly good Lickitung! Lickitung was my favorite Pokémon on Jessie's team besides Arbok...

    I liked Licikitung too but Wobbufett was overall better.

    This ep was great for several reasons:

    - First return of the Magikarp salesman since the St. Anne episode

    - Tauros competition in which Ash wins with his Tauros.

    - Wobbufett's debut

    Great ep. Too bad all Johto eps weren't like this.

    This episode was awesome! First, we get to see Ash use one of his Tauros which was totally great considering the fact that he doesn't use his Tauros as much as he uses his other Pokemon. Then we see a flashback from the first season. Then Jessie receives a Wobuffet, and loses her Lickitung. It was also sad to see Lickitung go. I was hoping to see more actions of Lickitung. All in all, a very decent episode. 10/10

    Aww, I kinda miss Lickitung... well, I hope that kid takes care of it. I totally loved the accidental trade ^_^ Wobbuffet is awesome! It seems happier with Jessie than it did with Benny.

    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.

    I was sad to see Lickitung go, but i think Wobuffet is a better fit with Jessie.

    I am really going to miss Lickitung. Although, I think Wobbufet will be a good addition to Team Rocket. I am glad that Benny was able to find someone to trade with him, even if it was by accident. I also liked the return of the Magikarp salesman. I would of thought that James would have recognized the scam earlier though. I am also really sad that Ash gave his Heracross to Prof. Oak. Heracross is a really strong pokemon, and it was finally getting some decent training. I also don't understand why Ash didn't trade one of his other Tauros for either Onix, Nidoqueen, or Rhyhorn. However, the Tauros competition was pretty exciting. I also liked how everybody wanted Misty's Psyduck.

    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!

    The first posts says the town is "obsessed with trading". I think they were only obsessed because it was a special occasion. If anything, they were obsessed with Tauros stampedes.

    I liked that Team Rocket found a way to cheat everyone out of their Pokeballs for the hundredth time in the anime. A trading machine? Ingenious!

    Wobbuffet accidently gets traded to Jessie in exchange for her Lickitung and I died a little inside. I was hoping they'd trade again, but apparently the writers planned for this. Bye bye Lickitung. 8/10

    Lickitung being replaced- a good decision of the writers. They should have done it earlier.
    No I'm thinking Team Rocket without Wobbufet it's not the same team!

    This episode was ok... It was cool seeing Wobbufet for the 1st time, but I really wish Jessie didn't trade her Likitung for it... Ash was great in the Tauros tournament.

    Good episode. I didn't like Lickitung, and Wobbufet is funny (but he ruined Team Rocket's anthem). The Tauros Competition was a good and original idea, but the best was Misty's Psyduck being popular and wanted by other trainers!

    It's Wooper!
    That Snubbull is still stalking Meowth lol! The idea behind the trade fair was interesting, and I like how Misty didn't want to give away her Psyduck. She so loves that Psyduck! I wasn't too bothered about Lickitung leaving Team Rocket seeing as it wasn't used that much, and it didn't seem like Jessie was too bothered either lol.

    This episode was hilarious, I just love how Ash won the tauros competition and despite Misty not liking Psyduck deep down inside she really does love her ducky LOL. I felt a little sad for Jessie cuz she gave up her Likitung but Wobba is cute.
