Once 5th Gen rolls around, whenever that is, Piplup gets the boot, now free to evolve if or whenever it wishes to, another girly coordinator and bird starter gets milked for all their worth, and the cycle repeats.

    Yeah, that's always a possibility. Not that seeing it as a Prinplup/Empoleon for a grand total of 3 episodes will make much difference.

    It doesn't really have to be a bird starter, it was probably just a coincidence that we got 2 bird-based starters in a row.

    I'm happy with the episode. I loved Dawn and Piplup went through the same thing they went at the beginning. Very clever. Piplup us becoming entertaining lately. I'm happy it didn't evolve.

    From what I hear, Piplup didn't evolve because it didn't want to become disobedient like Mamoswine. I guess Piplup loves Dawn a lot that it would refuse evolution for her benefit.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    It's funny, because I'm glancing back over the review thread for "Pika and Goliath", and it reeks of the same material as this. Any old moron on the street can tell you an evolution would not occur, and for some odd reason it gets debated in the spoiler forum for a month, then when the episode finally airs, everyone goes ballistic from no evolution. This includes people saying they are "through" with the show, that the writers "owe" them for "teasing" them, baseless mascot bashing, followed by continued debates over evolution. Oddly enough, this was exactly a year ago, showing that Serebii Forums truly is one huge neverending cycle of manic nonsense that always comes full circle in the end.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    The poster that Jun held up, showed me how the "made up" text in the anime works.
    They just take some Hiragana or Katakana of what they're trying to say and chop off bits and pieces of it, and viola, you get the language. If you know a bit of katakana, you can tell that it once said "Pokemon Pinpon"

    btw, Who actually thought that Piplup was seriously going to evolve? I mean really, It's on the same godly level as pikachu with japanese children.

    LOL @ the ranting in this thread. Oh boy, I'd like to see peoples faces if Chimchar didn't evolve (if we didn't know it would by Movie 12), lol.

    I wonder, if there was an ep where Corphish stopped itself from evolving, would there have been complaining? We were never given an in-show reason why Corphish never evolved, but nobody seemed to care either.

    Anyway seems like the writers are going to keep Dawn with her plushies, Piplup, Buneary, Pachi and her evo's, Ambipom and Mamoswine.

    I'm pretty content with the team Dawn has, given this looks to be her final team for Sinnoh at least. Well let's move on.

    Predictable. I knew Piplup wasn't going to evolve in this episode. Piplup knows that once it evolves it will barely out of its pokeball anymore. And besides it would've upstage that kid...what's his name? Anyway, it would've upstage that kid's Prinplup.

    Corphish does have a reason it can't evolve, they don't want to give a main character a Dark-type Pokémon. Might have never been stated in show, but it is there, and blatantly obvious.

    I like Piplup's reason for not evolving, and I'm glad they came up with a good reason rather than having bad blood with it's evos, or just plain not wanting to.

    That's not a reason that has any bases on the story though. That would be like saying Piplup didn't evolve just because it's a mascot. I'm glad they gave Piplup a reason not to evolve, they should do that with all of the pokemon that they writers decide they are never going to evolve.

    While we're on the subject of Corphish, for example, they could have had it develop a rivalry with Archie's Crawdaunt (and it would have given Team Aqua more screentime, win-win situation).

    This episode was good. What impressed me the most is Dawn breaking into the TR mecha and destroying the thing from the inside out.

    Whoa, you're back! Post on a regular basis again, I may pick on you, but I still miss you...

    So anyway, how is this everstone thing being handled? Is Pip just wearing it like some sort of necklace? Did it swallow it like Ultrazard (fanfic Pokemon) did to retain its form?

    The only thing that annoys me is that they make titles like that and nothing happens. Thats just pointless. -.-

    Or maybe the girly coordinator will have all evolved pokémon in her team for once.

    I knew that Piplup would never evolve, it's trying to be like Pikachu and get as strong as it can without evolving.

    Now that Dawn has an everstone i think we're stuck with Piplup forever.

    Exactly.

    I can't see how people are even upset about this. It's been obvious for about a year that Piplup wasn't evolving.

    Dawn had 3 evolutions already
    Brock had 1
    Ash had 4 and Chimchar is confirmed to make 5

    Don't you think thats more than enough? In Johto Ash's only pokemon to evolve was Chicorita. Of course Brock's Pineco and Zubat/Golbat evolved and Misty's Poliwag/Poliwhirl evolved but who cares? We never even seen Foretress, Crobat or Politoed.

    Be happy with what we get people; this series is turning out even better than AG IMO.
    Well, actually, I've seen a lot of them when I watched the episodes.

    My god, just looking the episode pictures on the main website is enough to make me feel emotional.

    ...seriously. Piplup was stressing over a big decision, I felt like giving it a hug to sooth its emotional storm.

    And yet people are still being mean. God sometimes I just felt sick listening to endless and pointless complaints about Piplup.

    Figures as the Piplup haters would complain to no end which is nothing new, but this episode really surprised me. Not the fact the obvious, but how Dawn was totally in a different page then Piplup. She wanted Piplup to evolve, she was so excited, but the minute she told Piplup that, I didn't expect it to snap, and get into a huge fight, well more as Piplup runs away. Looks like Piplup not wanting to evolve basically rubbed off from Pikachu from exactly a year ago since DP 74 aired.

    But I liked how the situation was handled. But I will wonder just like Pikachu what if was a Prinplup. I wouldn't mind if it evolved, but same ol Piplup. But too bad its fiesty attitude is not the same when they first met.

    It was pretty obvious from the second that Dawn started keeping Piplup out of its ball full time that it wouldn't evolve. And people thought it would evolve in this episode? Look at the movie 12 poster, or the promotional pictures for the future episodes, or gosh, I don't know, maybe that lockbox in your brain where you hide your common sence.

    I'm no Piplup lover either, infact I kind of hate the little thing, but its not that big of a deal that it didn't want to evolve. It would most likely keep the same personality, similar voice, and be kept out of its ball, so nothing would really change except for it getting a little bit taller, so it wouldn't even really make a difference, so why make such a big deal out of it.


    /End Rant.

    Edit: Oh and you're right. Not evolving one pokemon is indeed the same as killing millions of jews. I actually feel bad for you and anyone else who thinks that your nazi jokes are funny.
    Oh yeah, because I love piplup and I'm jokingly calling him hitlup right? Because that's what people do to their friends right, refer them to a hypocritical bas-tard, right? THINK MUCH. You're an eejit, it isn't a joke, so next time, think, right? But 10 points for thinking like a mental retard. It's not a joke, I'm dead fu-ckin serious? That b-itch should've evolved and I hate the Japanese for pulling a mean, mean, joke on me. Next time, call it Pochama's kopout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Not, what you originally called it.

    You're a retard. Stop hiding behind your computer.


    I'm looking forward to watching the subbed version, as it should clear some questions up for me. However, even with the lack of subs, I really enjoyed this episode. The whole idea of Pochama not wanting to evolve was handled pretty well to me. I believed it'd just be a copy of Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden, but it felt different. I liked how the resisting of evolution was played off, and how the everstone was incorporated. Pochama not evolving was fine with me too. Lately, the writers have been handling it much better than mid-DP, so its character makes up for its lack of evolution. Hoorah for Jun and Kenny in the episode also! :]
