A nice episode, I loved how Misty's Poliwhirl evolved into Politoed. I can't imagine Misty with a Poliwrath so Politoed was a good choice for her. Politoed dancing and clapping and shaking hands was very cute to see. I thought that it was funny when Jessie became attached to Team Rocket's own device and Meowth and James controlled her.

I kind of wanted Misty with a Poliwrath. It looks like she now has two ditzy Water Pokemon. I want to see how it acts around Psyduck. xD Its Swagger was really cool as well.

Great episode, I haven't gotten into Politoed before but he was an awesome critter in this episode.
I also loved it when Politoed used Swagger :P

I think it is a better choice for Kasumi's Nyorozo evolves into a Nyorotono than a Nyoroton. The King's Rock is fully utilised in this episode otherwise it would have been wasted. I assume that sending Pokémon to the transporter has a similar effect as trading a Pokémon which triggers the evolution.

Just like Psyduck, Politoed get's Misty mad when it doesn't do what it's supposed to.
Funny when James tried to get Jessie to use Flamethrower and Hyper Beam.

I really liked that Misty took initiative and battled against the COTD and his Poliwrath at the start, even if her Poliwhirl flopped. Jessie's gypsy/fortune teller disguise made me cackle, and seeing Team Rocket control Poliwrath with their device was interesting. I also giggled when Misty's Politoed started shaking Victreebel's leaves.

I liked how Poliwrath attacked Meowth and James after Jessie had tricked its owner. Misty's Poliwhirl's evolution wasn't surprising to me once we saw him find Ash's King's Rock, but Politoed seemed strong. :3

Lol, Poliwhirl shouldn't have taken Ash's King's Rock. Misty should've apologized when that happened.

In Poliwhirl's defense tho, it's not as if Ash had any use for the King's Rock any ways. The rock would've ended up being forgotten if Poliwhirl hadn't used it to evolve here. ^^;

I was actually sad when Poliwhirl evolved into Politoed because I prefer Poliwrath instead. Too bad Ash didn't have a Water Stone.

I think the writing staff made him evolve into Politoed cuz it was a Johto pokemon and therefore more relevant than Poliwrath. That and the King's Rock was already available in Ash's bag. ^^;

We don't know that. Fact is Ash won the King's Rock via his own hard work, and then suddenly Poliwhirl snatched it and Ash was left with nothing. :/

Well it's not as if Ash was that mad about Poliwhirl using his King's Rock to evolve any ways ha ha. At most it was a minor inconvenience to have his item taken without permission. But I stand by my stance that Poliwhirl's evolution was overdue.

Finally a good Johto episode where Misty got a new Pokemon via evolution even if it's confusing since she didn't trade Poliwhirl. And TR's harness device reminded me of AJ's. I totally forgot that Ash had a King's Rock that he won from the Pokemon Sumo Wrestling Competition though. I thought it was cute to see Politoed hop around and greet everyone. It seems to be very friendly.
