    It took me a while to figure out why the swinub would be the ones to locate the hot springs, but I guess it's just because they'd be more sensitive to heat as ice pokemon. The little girl in this episode was really annoying, but otherwise the episode was pretty interesting. I liked the part where the twerps and their friends were chasing Team Rocket in the boxes, the part where Wobbuffet appears out of nowhere and James and Meowth get scared, Jessie and Meowth taking a while to get excited about striking oil, Jessie pointing out where she was in the modeling poster, and Team Rocket forgetting that they're right in the middle of a battle.

    is it just me, or were U, Ri, and Mu (the nicknames for the three Urimuu in the Japanese version) a parody of Ko, Bu, and Ta from Tonde Buurin? Yeah, I know very little about this anime, but I recall stumbling upon this info a long time ago, and thought I'd bring it up now because I just saw this episode in Japanese.

    BTW, another interesting tidbit about the Japanese version is that this episode switched the order for the Ookido Lecture and the next episode preview. Now, the lecture comes after the preview (also, this episode marks the beginning of "TO BE CONTINUED..." appearing on screen without the picture panning out into a black background, but that was probably noticeable on the dub).

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    I translate for #Pocketmonsters (just because I know Japanese does not make me Japanese, stop PMing me).

    A very good debut for the Swinub, I liked how they were able to sniff out hot springs, plus they were so cute.

    This was better than I thought it would be, I'll give it that. A few good moments, like Jessie's modelling career and the box racing. But it was still pretty dull, the idea was a bit... iffy. The swinub were really cute though 8D

    I thought the Swinub were adorable. I like how they were eventually able to sniff out a hot spring. I liked the part where they are sledding down the mountain in the boxes. It is too bad that Todd missed his shot of Articuno though. I thought it was funny when TEam Rocket couldn't steal Graveler. I also laughed at the part where Jessie shows where she is in her modeling poster.

    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!

    Interesting to see hot springs in the anime.

    I really liked that Swinub appeared in this episode. They are honestly some of the cutest Pokemon around.

    It was a particularly pleasent episode. 6/10

    This episode was ok... It was cool seeing Swinub and its special use for the 1st time in this episode. It was also cool to see a Graveler again. The 3 names for the Swinub were really cute. The sledding down the mountain in boxes was very cool.

    40/100

    Great episode and a cool introduction episode for Swinub. I don't know why, but I always liked this one and Swinub is a cute Pokemon. 8/10, a good and enjoyable filler. Nothing more or less than that.

    This episode was alright in a way. They introduced Swinub alright, but the synopsis wasn't that interesting though. I do find the personalities of the Swinubs funny and that made this episode slightly better.

    A good episode, the Swinub were adorable to see. I liked how they had the ability to eventually sniff out hot springs. I didn't really like the COTD little girl though. I lol'd at how Jessie had to be the one to steal Graveler and then failed. Also laughed when she was so miniscule in that modeling poster of hers. Lastly, I liked the part where Ash, Misty, Brock, & Todd were sledding down the mountain in boxes. It's too bad Todd missed his shot of Articuno though.
