    Is anyone else noticing all the problems Dawn is facing that are similar to Ash's same issues? Charizard evolved too fast, didn't obey, was nursed to good health, started obeying, rinse and repeat with Mamoswine. Bulbasaur starts to evolve and doesn't want to, rinse and repeat with Piplup. Ash even commented about Dawn having the same rough spots re-training Prinplup as he did with Grotle. I'm sure there are other similarities.

    I'm glad Barry was in the episode. I really like Barry. I was funny watching Barry and Kenny. Barry, "Empoleon, Hydro Cannon!".....Kenny, "Prinplup....Bubblebeam!" lol?

    I don't care what anyone says, I love Piplup and I'm no depressed about it not evolving yet. This episodes was better then I thought. I had to laugh at how Kenny slides and then hugs Prinplup. LOL.

    Same here. Piplup is a cutie though if it ever does evolve I wouldn't be disappointed. (I hope) Anyway this was a good episode glad to see Barry and Kenny again.

    -Still getting used to the new opening... I'd forgotten they'd changed it, and for the better. xD
    -Oh, and a new Episode Title Screen, too. o.o I must admit, I like this one more. ^^
    -Haha, it's Barry again. xD And he runs right into Ash. Didn't see that one coming.
    -Barry and Kenny just met and they're best friends already...? o.O
    -Well, Barry and Empoleon are enthusiastic about ping pong...
    -I guess Piplup doesn't want to lose his cuteness appeal... That, and Piplup's sort of the "poster Pokémon" at the moment...
    -Barry, the fining twerp... xD
    -Dawn's getting a bit pushy about evolving... =/
    -Ariados again. Deja vu, anyone?
    -Ariados's voice isn't what I expected it to be.
    -"Whoever's doing that, you're going to get fined!" "Do you have any idea how much I'm going to fine you for stealing my Empoleon?!" "Save it for someone else! You're Team Missile, right?"-Barry. LOL. xDDDD
    -Team Rocket's Prinplup machine is so adorable.
    -Seriously, Ash and co. have amazing strength and reflexes. They can all somehow climb moving machines.
    -I would've thought Dawn had learnt that saying "Give Piplup back!" isn't going to work.
    -Bahahaha. I feel sorry for Meowth.
    -Love the music that startes when Piplup uses Whirlpool. <3
    -"I don't like his shirt" -James. xD
    -And Pikachu saves the day. Is that Shin Satoshi I hear in the background there? <3
    -Even though I knew Piplup wasn't going to evolve, I'm still really glad Piplup didn't evolve. I really can't see Dawn in contests with a Prinplup, shouting "Spotlight!", or making cute appeals with Pachirisu.

    Overall, I really liked this episode, even if it was a little predictable. :3

    I've sadly missed the last half of this yesterday (blame my mom,) but I've watched the rest of it this morning, & that's what made this BP summary possible.

    Oh, I also want to mention that this is the first time I've seen the new intro to the Galactic War-zone.

    Okay, here we go!

    - Piplup is underneath a waterfall, meditating between upgrading or not; she decided not to, & prevents it using Bide. Why isn't it upgrading? We'll find out after the intro.
    - Sandalstraw Town... so that's what that town was previewed at the end of last episode!
    - In any case, the whole gang is at the Pokemon Center, with Dawn "attempting" to get her team ready for the contest, when all of a sudden...
    - OMG it's Barry!! He barges into the group, & as he crashes onto Ash, he demands a fine from him.
    - What strikes me is the fact that Ash's hat found its place on top of his head on its own after being sent flying. I don't know how it can do that...
    - After a bit of a "dispute," Kenny joins up.
    - Why Dawn is angry at Kenny for calling her DeeDee, I haven't a clue...
    - Barry claims that since Kenny is from Twinleaf like him, that they're best friends. What are you smoking, Barry?? You've just met him!
    - Barry is going to enter the Ping-Pong competition, which allows for a Pokemon partner, & insists on having Ash join up.
    - As they head out, Dawn's Piplup is acting strange, almost like it's drugged or something. Then, the upgrade glow emerges!
    - Piplup uses Bide to stop the process, & we still don't know why...
    - The said upgrade prevention process takes a huge toll on Piplup, & they head back into the Pokemon Center.
    - Turns out, Piplup just needs rest, as that Bide took out most of its energy.
    - In Piplup's room, it decides on whether it should upgrade or not, but when Dawn barges in, it decides it doesn't want to upgrade, & leaves via the window.
    - In the meantime, Barry & his Empoleon are shoving the rest of the gang, barring Dawn of course, out of the Center so that they can train for the competition, when dawn interrupts them & tells them that Piplup is gone. Noes!! We must look for it!!
    - As the gang split up & leave Dawn by her lonesome, she finds a glow out in the distance. It turns out to be her Piplup.
    - She approaches it & try to calm Piplup down, but it goes against her! Drama!!
    - After some more running, her Piplup get caught in an Ariados Web. Dawn tries to save it, but the Ariados have other plans...
    - After dodging its attacks, she manages to free Piplup. The situation is grim, however, as several more Ariados get ready for the kill with what else but the SBC.
    - Her Piplup steps in their line of fire & uses Bide to withstand the rapid-firing SBCs. How the SBC can become a pulse beam, I haven't a clue.
    - The resulting counterattack from Piplup's Bide sends the Ariados flying out to god knows where.
    - Come to think of it, that's what happened in the very first episode of the Sinnoh Series, so Piplup had Bide to begin with.
    - We cut to Barry & Kenny, who are looking for her Piplup that she had already found, when all of a sudden, a pair of Mechanical Hands come out & swipe both Empoleon & Prinplup. The two of them start flipping out & run in the general direction that these hands came from.
    - Back to Dawn, they begin reminising about how they first met, when her Piplup gets snatched from a mechanical arm that's not dissimilar to the ones that snatched both Barry's Empoleon & Kenny's Prinplup, & as in cue, Ash & Brock join them, & so do Kenny & Barry.
    - Guess what? It's TR inside their PipPrinPoleon mecha, & they're reciting their motto. Where's Barry's Motto Breaker?!
    - There it is. Barry interrupts them, & they try to stop them to no avail. Since Dawn is desperate to get back her Piplup, she grabs ahold onto their mecha & trys to figure out a way to free it. Nothing works, but she finds a hatch up top.
    - Dawn enters their mecha & starts demanding her Piplup back, to no avail. In the meantime, her Piplup finds its own way out, & after rejoining Dawn & some more reminising, they escape together.
    - They manage to destroy the PipPrinPoleon mecha, & so they fight. Since we all know how that's going to end...
    - Fast forward to the Pokemon center, in which everybody is recovered from this ordeal.
    - Nurse Joy gives Dawn an Everstone, so that Piplup won't have to use Bide to stop itself from upgrading. Good for her, but bad for us, as that means it'll continue to hog the limelight away from Pikachu...

    Overall, I think the fact that her Piplup doesn't want to upgrade is nothing short of a disapointment for everyone, but since it's the Sinnoh Mascot, I pretty much saw it coming a mile away. However, once she leaves the main cast, what will happen to her once that happens will be left up to god, & possibly the writers at the FanFiction Department.

    I really liked this episode! Piprinoleon was cool as well! This episode focused on my favorite Sinnoh trio, the Piplup line! I liked hearing music from the Japanese preview. Barry and Kenny becoming friend's was cool. They do have similar named, live in Twinleaf Town and their starter is from the Piplup line.

    Regardless of your (anyone's) opinion of whether or not Piplup should have evolved, I think everyone can agree that AN official explanation is better than NO explanation (as with Squirtle, Corphish, Cyndaquil, etc.).

    I don't care that piplup didn't evolve, i mean it has been obvious DP021 "Ya See We Want An Evolution", the one with the B-Button League, that piplup wasn't going to evolve=

    "I think it's kinda a neat idea!"

    I mean is that a hint or what. Im sure she said something else too, but i cant find it in the dub...

    It's obvious. I liked how Barry was brought into this ep. I mean, how yaoi in a kids cartoon can you get? I mean crashing into each other FACE ON!!!! U have no idea wot just crossed my mind there. *shot* Good episode all round.

    Hm... hate it already... Screen-hogger copying Pryce now... now it's glowing... hu-rrah... Still can't get over the changed opening. Stop! In the name of love... sorry, had to get that out of my system...

    Yay, now screen-hogger is trying to get more attention by dancing around and acting hung over. And cue hilarious Jun entrance; looks like you've got competition. Let's see who hogs more screentime this episode: Pocha - 2 Jun - 1.... maybe two for Jun, can't really tell, but he is blocking out Pocha, so that's good.

    And cue bland rival #2 of Dawn's that we never see and has no background... hm, Sandalstraw? I think the dub is running out of names... I think I mentioned that before, but, oh well... If bland rival #2 says Dee-Dee in that annoying voice one more time, I'm going to shoot him... Thank you, Jun. You get another point for that Jun - 3 Pocha - 2. So, wait, they all lived in Twinleaf Town together, and yet, NOBODY KNEW EACH OTHER?! But I love Jun pretty much appointing bland rival #2 his BFF!

    And cue another filler tournament... ping pong... hm... that's original, at least.... I think Jun deserves another point for that display 4-2.... Are you kidding me, screen-hogger?! 4-3... because it makes a big deal about glowing and faints because it used too much energy... maybe that's 2 points... 4-4... Jun: "Hey! Screen-hogger's stealing my thunder!" Anyway, at least the writers realize Pocha is weak because it has to actually use an attack to stop the evolution and faints from the attack, while Bulbasaur only had to resist the evolution and didn't faint.

    *space out* Blah-blah-blah... godzilla and its atrocious speed is mentioned... Mamo mentioned... Brock is thinking... at least he's doing something... Oh, look, a shadowed Team Rocket, maybe they want to be featured on Who's That Pokemon?... Twerpette, contest twerp [don't you mean, bland twerp?] and fining twerp... at least they're original with the names... TR does the chicken dance.... why would they want to steal screen-hogger?... And speaking of the blue devil... 5-4 in favor of Pocha

    You know, I just realized how drastically different Piplup and Prinplup look.. Dawn wants a Prinplup, screen-hogger wants to stay small and lovable... figures... Piplup: "Don't touch me! Get out of the shot! I need more screen-time to beat Jun in the contest!" ... I think screen-hogger just earned two points: 7-4. Piplup: "I'm running away because if I run I can still be small and sellable to kids!" 8-4...

    And Jun makes a comeback by dragging everyone against their own will: 8-5. Now that screen-hogger's out of the way, Jun's beginning to catch up! ... And Brock, the Pokemon expert, finally speaks up and explains things like the human Pokedex he is... Prinplup and Empoleon are also drastically different...

    Dawn: "Okay, I have to find Piplup... Ooo... shiny!" ... oh look... screen-hogger... and it falls into the water... 9-5... Dawn is really clueless... Brock just explained why it doesn't want to evolve and she's asking it why it doesn't want to... Dramatic exit... 10-5... How did it not see the web? ... Ariados: "Piplup has had enough screen-time! I want some!" Piplup: "Fat chance!" ... Ooo, Dawn's been watching the Matrix. Yay! Screen-hogger is being launched into space... and yet it still manages to hog the attention... 11-5... However, I loved its face when the Ariados used Hyper Beam... wait, how do wild Ariados know Hyper Beam?... And it hogs the attention by using Bide once more... 12-5... Piplup: "Take that! I'm the only screen-hogger around here!" ... Jun and bland rival #2 get their Pokemon stolen... Tender moment... The trio reunites...

    Okay... that TR mecha is going to give me nightmares... I think I'll give Jun a pity point for his outburst 12-6... Jun interrupts the motto and insults TR, he gets two points 12-8.
    Jessie: "We're helping Jun by taking the screen-hogger out of the picture!" And yet, I think it managed to still hog the screen while Jun was having his outburst... yup... 13-8.

    Gee... if only I could get the Prinplup in my game to absorb electricity and send it back to the other team.... Pocha hogs the screen again.. 14-8.... 15-8.... Piplup: "I'm going to kill you for letting Jun catch up to me!" ... 16-8...

    For those of you who don't know, impudent means "lacking modesty"... perfectly describes our resident screen-hogger, YAY FOR MEOWTH! .... Close-up for Pocha... 17-8...tender moment and TR doesn't do anything except translate... REALLY?! ... Flashy move.. 18-8... battle with TR... Jessie: "Let it evolve so it'll be too big to fit in front of the screen!" ... Piplup forgot Bide and learned... Thunderbolt! ... Oh... it's just Pikachu... And Jun and bland rival #2 team up to steal screen-hogger's spotlight in a last-ditched attempt to win... 18-9... And screen-hogger's display cuts Jun out of the shot... 19-9...

    Wow... TR's Pokemon survived two Thunderbolts already... seems promising.... and then screen-hogger steals Pikachu's thunder... no pun intended... 20-9... Gasp! The lengendary diamond dust! ... Oh wait.. it's only water... tender moment.... for the third and hopefully final time... Jun: "How did that screen-hogger beat me?"... That TR mecha is even scarier-looking when destroyed... it's like Chuckie...

    Nurse Joy: "Piplup, your prize for defeating Jun in a screen-hogger contest is... a new Everstone, complete with full 24-hour service for all your evolution-stopping needs!"

    And in the final scene, we see Dawn with the rival that's finally helping her train with screen-hogger against Prinplup with Dawn's Pokemon looking on and Jun is playing ping-pong with Ash along with Empoleon and Pikachu, who's showing off and jumping up and down... DOES ANYONE SEE BROCK IN ALL OF THIS?! ... Oh wait, he's that little speck that's watching Ash's and Jun's game... Poor, unloved Brock... you should try the Screen-Hogger Contest to get more attention... however, you shall be demolished by the current winner... Piplup...

    Well, that was a completely pointless filler... hopefully the Ping-Pong Competition will be much better.

    I really liked this episode. I'm glad that there is a reason why Piplup won't evolve for the rest of the series at this point. I also like the flashbacks to DP001 during the episode as well as the similar situation that they had with the Ariados.

    First of all, it's a simple opinion, chill out. Second of all, the explanation was the same explanation as with the hundreds of other Pokemon that won't evolve: they think they're strong enough at their base stage and usually have a rivalry with their evolved form.

    What character development was there? The only thing that happened was that Dawn officially announced she was BFFs with Piplup... I think that was established way back in the first episode of DP.

    You have to also remember that this episode was an important set-up for the following two episodes, with both Kenny and Barry appearing and introducing whatever competition they plan on participating in.

    True. I think I just hated it because the screen-hogger got even more attention... I mean they could've used any old POTD to make them appear, but they choose to give said role to Piplup... As if we don't see enough of it... I think I've ranted enough...

    No matter what you guys say, i think it was a great time for us to stop and think in a deeper way. If you had a piplup like dawns that was proud, loves you,and saw mamoswine being a mess of a pokemon, do you think your piplup would evolve?

    But the summary is that this episode is more of a thinking episode.But then again, most of the D/P episodes are thinking episodes. You gotta put yourself in either Dawn or piplups shoes. But this is a great episode to show some character. If Dawn has a Empoleon tank, that would cause a huge increase or decrease in viewers.Just by having it not evolve, only a few people stop watching and others keep watching. It builds dawns already detailed character. If only there was a D/P scenario that builds ash's character...
    My partner is Torterra. Cause he has free food

    This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciatted starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig. Started by Dax-360 Turtwig FTW and In Uber~ Elementer

    This "opinion" uses a word completely differently than most people, and became nothing more than a derogatory post. In fact it's a borderline "posting with the intent to annoy others" infraction.

    Groans... I was very disappointed when I watched this episode about Piplup not evolving. You know why?

    Because they barely kept any Japanese music in the dub...

    Thought I was gonna say I was mad that Piplup didn't evolve, huh? Well, I'm not mad one bit. I think anime evolution is overrated by at least many older fans. It's as if a Pokemon will never amount to anything unless it evolves, no matter what the long term consequences of that are. (Ex. having Pikachu evolve.)

    Like I said before, it'd be more annoying for Piplup to get all this attention and then be replaced by a 5th generation Pokemon doing what Piplup's doing right now.

    People accuse Piplup of being a Pikachu clone (which I'm not disagreeing with, but... how come it was so bad calling Dawn a May-clone then?) and yet are upset that it gets an episode confirming it won't evolve.

    Many of the Pokemon in Ash's friends group don't evolve, but nearly all of them have never actually started to evolve or were going to evolve via the use of a stone. If Bulbasaur hadn't stopped itself from evolving, more people would think that Bulbasaur might have (or still might have) a chance of evolving in one episode. No one ever said it wouldn't.

    And also, this isn't just any of Dawn's Pokemon- it's her starter, and the Pokemon that is most associated with her. If any Pokemon in her party would have an explanation on why it wouldn't evolve, it'd be Piplup.

    This episode showed us that now there's definitely no point in waiting for Piplup to evolve.

    True. I think I just hated it because the screen-hogger got even more attention...
    *shrugs*

    In any case, it's not like it's going to leave anytime soon and never be seen again. It's the Pikachu of Dawn's party. Sure it wasn't like this at the very beginning of D&P, but still...

    I mean they could've used any old POTD to make them appear, but they choose to give said role to Piplup... As if we don't see enough of it... I think I've ranted enough...
    A reason both Kenny and Barry appeared was because they each had a Pokemon that was a different evolved form of Piplup to show of to the TV audience.

    There's always Paul episodes. Also there was an episode where Pikachu didn't evolve.

    If you want, look at Yu-Gi-Oh! C,Pokiman, and Naruto C, but they haven't exactly been updated recently...

    STILL REJECTING PMs. SORRY. (No offense to anyone.)

    It was a pointless, unnecessary, and disappointing episode. Well, I mean I knew Piplup wasn't going to evolve, but the episode itself was just too pointless. But why are they not evolving any of their Pokemon? I love Piplup, but I think Dawn needs to evolve it. Seriously. Okay, so maybe it wasn't unnecessary, but they didn't need to drag it out into one episode, a part of another would suffice. And they made the episode all nostalgic for Dawn, but that just really didn't appeal to me.

    rawr - the scary faerie ; don't fear being a queer
    white light streams down to be broken up by those prisms
    into all colors of the rainbow. take your own color in the
    pattern and be just that. so spread your wings and let your
    inner faerie fly. faeries aren't scary, unless you're granbull
