    Default A Tail With A Twist! (284)

    A Tail With A Twist!

    While relaxing, Ash & Co. come across a Wild Seviper which attacks Ash & Co's Pokémon. Ash & Co. try to defeat it but it runs off. Treecko is depressed from losing the battle and Ash decides he should train it. Can they train enough to beat the Seviper?

    Jessie Vs. Seviper is the best scene in the entire animé, hands down.

    a very good episode imo.
    I liked the way Treecko protected Torchic and how it trained itself. I like that about Treecko, he's doing everything possible to win a battle.
    Also the re-match was easily won by Treecko, of course it did train itself very hard !! XD
    A very good episode !! 9/10

    This episode was pretty funny! Torchic meeting Seviper the first time, Torchic's reaction when Seviper ate her apple, (I think Torchic is a girl) team rocket trying to catch Seviper with the trap with that fruitbasket, Jessie Vs. Seviper.... One thing is pretty wierd her to. I mean, when Seviper was a wild pokemon it seemed so smart and tricky, but after Jessie caught it... It just seemed, not so smart... Wierd.

    This was a great episode. I loved when Sevipr used Poison Tail and knocked Treecko right into that tree, it was nice to actually see Ash's Pokemon get hurt for once. The last battle between Treecko and Seviper was also awesome, especially when Treecko learned Pound.

    I just saw this episode in Japanese, and I noticed a pretty nifty tidbit concerning Nyaasu's translation of Kimori's dialogue right after he defeats Habunake. "Ore no ribenji owatta kara ato wa Pikachu ni makaseru datte" (I finished my revenge, so Pikachu can take it from here).... now, I haven't seen Nyaasu translate other Pokemon's dialogue much in the Japanese version (this may be my first time actually), but I thought it was worth noting that Nyaasu uses "ore", and he doesn't speak in his usual speech pattern. Now, given Kimori's personality, it seems obvious he'd be the type to use "ore" if he were capable of human speech, but the thing I found odd here is that Nyaasu supposedly translates the dialogue exactly, rather than explain the gist of what's being said in his own words. With this in mind, it'd seem as though Pokemon language is complex enough to have multiple first-person forms and such just like Japanese. Did anyone else notice this?

    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).

    It really cracks me up how Jessie caught Seviper by beating the living cr*p out of it. Seviper's (zan)goose was definitely cooked when it bit her hair. LOL It's interesting that Seviper never held a grudge against her, but at least Seviper's been an interesting addition to the team. I liked when Jessie sent Wobbuffet against it, but he couldn't do anything unless Seviper moved first. LOL After watching this episode, I'm definitely still interested in seeing if Jessie's new hairdo in Japan lasts more than one two-part episode (I do like the new 'do).

    Also, the part with Treecko practicing pound to get stronger, and the part where Torchic's running around with food and Max says pokemon take after their trainers, was great.

    Mabe the reason it became less smart and a little more stupid is because Jessie waked it in the head too much!Anyway, this was a great episode and the two battles with Treecko and Seviper are awsome!

    Very funny episode, Jessie versus Seviper was very hilarious especially the reactions of James, Meowth, & Seviper after it had taken off her hair, she definitely laid into the thing. It was nice seeing Treeko protect Torchic from Seviper very nice and touching scene. It's great seeing Treecko go off and train by it's self that's pe of the best things I like about the advance series is they gave all the main character's Pokemon more personality. May's expression on her face was funny after Brock explained which Nurse Joy it was. Anyone else notice that Jessie's hair goes back to it's original length after she catches Seviper i'm surprised the animators didn't keep it short. Another interesting thing is the fact that Jessie once again owns a a Poison Pokemon that is a snake, while Jmaes never catches a pure poison type again instead getting grass & psychic types.

    I personally loved this episode. It was exciting to see Treecko get in some great battling experience; considering Ash just captured him. And the parts where Team Rocket were attempting to catch Seviper were funny. I loved when James said, "Don't you know fruit doesn't grow on trees!?" Lol...

    Also, I thought how Jessie commanded total domination on Seviper was hilarious. Never had I seen anyone take their anger out on a Pokemon like that before. Too bad her hair was damaged...

    This is (and probably will be) Team Rocket's only tough pokemon capture. Seviper was an awesome predator pokemon, what ever happened to those raspberries, I thought it gave it a very naughty attitude, that really needs to come back by any means.

    Fantastic episode all around, the plot kept twisting and properly involved Team Rocket, Battle Jessie, Treecko maning up to his duties, can't forget the "Nurse, Chansey's giving me that look again!"

    Riceballs are still heard and seen at this point? That's surprising.

    9/10 Enraged Jessie is probably the only contender to an upset Chansey

    It was weird how Jessie's hair was all missing and hen suddenly came back. I'm glad she got Seviper. It's a nice Arbok replacement.

    If I had to pick one Team Rocket moment to remember above all others, then this episode would be it. I was gawking at the television during Jessie's initial rant, and at the moment that Jessie grabbed Seviper by the neck after knocking it out, I was fairly certain that she would actually kill the thing. My laughter in the moments after that catch might be self-explanatory, but for now, thanks to her own bare hands, Jessie has a Seviper. Fortunately, Ash's Treecko beat Team Rocket and Seviper afterward, thereby opening the way for future encounters across Hoenn.

If freedom is my main idea, then harmony, individuality, and modernization are the three attributes I now sense and track. Those three attributes and that idea combined to make the United States of America a great global superpower and Pearlshipping and Wishfulshipping great Pokémon couples, and now, they've combined to make those four shows truly great television programs to me. I will enjoy enthusiastically supporting the Equestrian ponies' adventures for peace, for humankind, for the future.

    The way Jessie caught Seviper was funny.

    A little unconventional, but it worked.

    I thought that it was really nice of Treecko to fight Seviper just to protect Torchic. It is too bad that Treecko got hurt by Seviper. Luckily there was a Pokemon Center close by. I thought it was hilarious when Seviper bit off Jessie's hair and she began to throw a major tantrum. I was actually surprised that she caught it. I was also surprised that Treecko snuck out of the Pokemon Center. However, I respected it for doing some training. Thankfully Treecko's training paid off when it got it's rematch with Seviper.

    I did wonder however, how Jessie's hair managed to regrow so qiuckly. You can see it when she excites about catching Seviper.

    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!
