    After watching the more overtly religious episode "Take the Lombre Home", it's odd to think of this episode and how they danced around one of the more overtly religious symbols (*cough*nun outfit*cough*). Overall, the episode is pretty interesting, even though I'm not a big fan of slowpokes. It's nice to see those rare episodes where Team Rocket and the twerps get along well, and I love the scene where they race to finish mopping the floor. Ash and the others getting whapped for moving during meditation is also funny, especially Team Rocket's reaction. LOL

    This was a good episode. There was both deep thinking and humor to be found.

    I liked this episode, really.

    TR and Ash and co. getting along is a rarity, so I'm glad to see it.

    That statue defies the laws of physics. One scrawny bike gets placed under it and all of a sudden it's weightless. The bike should've been crushed to a million pieces.

    Madeline was cool. For one, she looked decent, something you don't get in every One-Shot Character. And her personality was great, too, calm and cheery(oxymoron). She was a bit oblivious, though.

    Hehe, everyone racing with the mops was lol.

    Ash's reaction to Gary was funny. And so were Brock and Misty's reactions to Ash's reaction[/mouthful].

    When was the last time we saw a Slowbro in action, really?

    Overall rating:
    8.0 out of 10
    Pretty good episode. The word enlightenment was overused, though ._.

    This was the worst episode I've ever seen. Serriously, and I don't bash episodes all that often.

    frankly, I think this episode's only excuse for existing was to get the animators to draw barefeet :\

    OK this episode was decent. My favorite part is whan Misty throws Meowth in the lake to ask the Pokemon why they aren't biting the fishing lures. The way she does it is one of the most hilarious moments in the Pokemon anime.
    6/10+1 for the Misty/Meowth moment, so 7/10

    Some parts of this episode was kinda boring, but I like the part with everyone racing in mopping the floor, that was fun and I also enjoyed the part where Misty threw Meowth into the lake.

    I thought this was a decent episode. I wasn't surprised that Ash wanted to do the training once he found out that Gary did it too. I liked seeing the mop race, and I laughes when Madeleine points out that even though it was a fun race to watch they barely cleaned the floors. I also loved the part where Misty throws Meowth into the lake to help with catching Pokemon. I thought that the getting hit with the stick for not meditating correctly was rather funny too.

    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!

    This episode had it's funny moments, like the mopping part. But overall, it wasn't really good.

    I don't remember anything funny, except maybe the dubbing error when Brock claimed to be from Flint City instead of Pewter City. Ash was only interested in training because Gary had trained there, typical. You'd think he'd want to simply sharpen his skills his own way without being too competitive. Kind of a pointless Filler though, in retrospect. Not the best episode they've come up with, so this gets a 3/10.

    It was an okay episode, nowhere near the best but it had its moments like Meowth been thrown into the lake (Jessie did the same to him in the Seaking catching episode). It reminds me that Jessie and Misty are so alike lol (Aside from having pale skin and red hair). They both go on about how pretty they are and is easily insulted when told otherwise, they both act the same towards James/Brock/Ash/Meowth, Misty's a little more tame then Jessie but not too much.

    I really didn't like this episode much... I didn't really understand half of what they were talking about in terms of what they believed enlightenment meant, etc. It was cool seeing Slowpoke again. It was funny when Meowth was talking to fish Pokemon underwater and they were explaining their role in the task. The racing with the mops was funny, especially when they found out they had to redo it.

    A few errors I noticed with this is that Brock says he is from Flint City instead of Pewter City. Also, Madeliene says that Slowpoke's name was invented by humans. If that were so, why does Slowpoke say its name anyway?

    Brock fell in love again, which never gets old or boring. The idea of a Slowpoke Temple was great! Madeline mentioning Gary and getting Ash motivated was great! And Madeline did a great job using Ash, Misty, Brock and Team Rocket as slaves to clean the Slowpoke Temple... And Misty saying she, Ash and Brock still had their youth, unlike Team Rocket was funny. Slowpoke was funny as well! Lanturn getting fished up by Slowpoke was cute and funny! Misty not catching anything and those cute Butterfree flying over while Misty didn't catch anything was great, and Slowpoke fishing up a Gyarados was funny as well, and Misty throwing Meowth in the water. Seeing Slowpoke evolving with Shellder on its tail was nice, and Slowbro using Confusion with the flag in his hand was great as well! And Delibird appeared in the end! What an awesome episode, 10/10!
