    Default A Three Team Scheme (303)

    A Three Team Scheme!

    While Training on Dewford Island, Ash & Co. find Professor Birch of Littleroot Town. He appears to be doing some field study. However in doing so, they find a Secret Base. However Team Magma, Team Aqua & Team Rocket all have their eyes set on this base!

    Team Magam and Aqua in the anime is something I shall never get tired of. Apart from the two real villains, this was a great episode to show off Nincada and Secret Power. It would've been awesome for Nincada to evolve, and the boy gets a Nincada AND a Shedinja out of nowhere!! Ingame reference is always welcome in the anime!

    Overall rating:
    9.0 out of 10!!
    Excellent filler!! Probably the best we've had in a LONG time(and last).

    Any guesses as to why 4Kids decided to edit the dolls out of Keanu's room?

    That is extremely odd. The first thing I thought of was that maybe they needed something to do to earn their paycheck, but since they appearently make their fair share of edits in One Piece it is truly baffling why they would need any extra work on Pokémon. Maybe since Pocket Monsters don't have much Japanese text or anything anymore, 4Kids' digital artists still feel the need to change stuff so they just do pointless things like this. At least they did a good job I guess.=/

    "Harland" and "Isabel" are not correct names for the comanders, the right ones are Tabitha and Shelly.

    I almost prefer the name "Harland" for Tabitha. I think the whole "I'm a villian because I have a lame real name" thing is a bit overdone on TV (well, the name *is* beautiful for a girl, but anyway...). I also wish that Team Magma and Team Aqua had more to do in this episode besides bicker and make a location mistake.

    I did like Team Rocket in this episode. It was funny how Jessie kept insisting Cascoon was a silcoon, and James and Meowth were very worried. At least things turned out for the best in the next episode. I liked how Giovanni came on the screen right in the middle of James and Meowth's conversation too. LOL Nincada was a pretty interesting pokemon too, and I wish we'd seen more of it on the show to date.

    I know in later comparisons on your site you've mentioned a law prohibiting real products in TV shows. Perhaps this is why they were painted over? They did a horrible job with that Relicanth, though.

    I know everybody gets mad at 4Kids for forgetting that Harlan should be Tabitha and Isabel should be Shelly, but I think they deserve a break. I had never heard of Tabitha and Shelly when this episode aired, and I'm sure they had never, either. It's an honest mistake that anybody could have made.

    Although, I personally am not a fan of this episode. The dubbing errors, and the way Nincada's name is pronounced (I still say it's pronounced Nin-Cay-Da, not Nin-Cah-Da) really bothered me. Also, this episode suggests that something major will happen with the Cave of Origin, yet nothing ever happens with that.

    Awesome, a Secret Base epsiode, which was cool with Nincada in it too. Team Magma/Aqua's appearance was nice

    I just rewatched this somewhere. I have a few things to say, but first I didnt even realize about the edits. But if wanted to prohite "real" products, why the heck did they do that? I mean, those "dolls" cant be bought anywhere in real life. They're just decorations you can buy ingame.

    Now, I must say that Keanu's voice kept reminding me of Misty(at least it sounded somewhat like her, but with a more boyish sound to it). Not only that, but I'm curious to know why 4kids decided to initially have screwed up translations for the blue orb and the red orb, and the screw ups with the names. Odd how they only changed their names during the episodes: "Gaining Groudon" and "The Scuffle of Legends". Unless of course this was just introducing them and because it's roughly 1 and a half seasons till we see them together again, they must have been trying to get away with it using bad memory.

    Otherwise, a pretty decent episode. I find it odd that Hidden Power looked more like Hyper Beam, but then again, the animators seem to change the appearance of the attacks every season.

    I think there are Pokemon stuffed animals available that look similar to them. Keep in mind, they also edited out cards that looked similar to the TCG.

    I believe Keanu was played by Rachael Lillis, so you're right about that.

    Actually, the names were corrected in Fight for the Meteorite. This episode was the only one where Tabitha and Shelly were referred to as Harlan and Isabel.

    I thought it was okay, but it needed more Team Aqua vs. Team Magma action. I thought it was a good time to introduce Secret Bases though.

    Nice episode, liked seeing the Secret Base referenced although I wouldn't really consider Keanu's base a secret since it had a door and lights inside a well dug out cave. Interesting that 4Kids edited out Pokemon Dolls when they should be perfectly fine and it certainly may have helped marketing more of the real life dolls if they'd left them in.

    The tagline that Serebii posted... ugh, sounds dirty to me XD Especially that last line.

    Why yes, I can make a sexual reference out of anything!


    The episode itself was sadly rather forgettable (read: outshadowed by Scuffle of Legends"). But at least Professor Birch was there! He's cool

    Yeah it was forgettable but the depictions of Magma and Aqua were pretty cool to see.

    I was really surprised to see Professor Birch doing research in Dewford Island. I really liked Keanu's secret base. I don'blame him for screaming at everyone though since they were invading his privacy. It was too bad Keanu got his Nincada stolen though. It is funny how Jessie still thinks she has a Silcoon when she really has a Cascoon. Team Magma and Team Aqua really surprised me. Especially since they were going after the same thing at the same time. It was sad that Keanu's secret base got destroyed but atleast he got his Nincada back. It was interesting to see what Team Magma and Team Aqua was looking for, as their searches were both failures.

    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!


    If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:

    An intro on Secret Bases and the appearance all all three evil teams in one episode. Nice. And Nincada's debut too I guess, though it was overshadowed by other events. What I hated about this episode was that the dub got a bunch of names wrong despite them being in the games. I'm talking about people like Team Aqua's Shelly and the Orbs which were named incorrectly. Grr. 5/10.

    Great episode.

    Team Magma and Aqua were very mean. They destroyed the little boy's room.

    And i loved to see Nincada.

    Very good episode, I like seeing Shelly (I like her character even if she hasn't done too much especially in the last two/three episodes with Magma/Aqua showdown). I noticed too her name was Isabella here, although it is a better name (Was that a mistake though?) The Indigo/Rose Orb sounds also better then Blue/Red Orb.

    This was an alright episode to me. The only thing I really liked was when Prof. Birch fell and landed on that Loudred they keep waking up. Seeing TM and TA confront each other was kinda cool too. I think if that kids Nincada would have evolved into Shedinja and Ninjask, this episode would have been a whole lot better.

    Team Aqua VS Team Magma was cool. I think it ended with a tie. Too bad the screentime wasn't given to Nincada.
