    I just saw it. They named the female guest character after my pain in the rear sister. They didn't actually but it just turned out that way. At least they named the guy Cane and not Al or else I would toss my breakfast in more ways then one.

    Once again, we have a TR mech. *Crushes worthless Spinda mech with a Gundam.*

    I loved how the Spinda with the broken heart mark was all over Brock. Then he went into "Ivy" mode. XD

    A filler through and through, in about an hour we get to see Torkoal's entrance.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    This was a pretty good episode. They had a lot of humor in this one, I liked how Brock kept finding the Spinda with the broken heart shape on it's head, and then it was clinging to him.XD Brock was basically funny throughout the whole episode. I also liked James' line when Spinda was in their balloon "Hey what are you doing confusing us, we're already confused!" So overall, even though this was a filler, I thought it was pretty good. The music could have been better, but it didn't bother me that much in this particular episode.

    Not much to say. I didn't like this episode when I first heard about it. The best parts all came from Brock.

    EDIT: And now I'm convinced that they MUST be trying to do a "Worst Choice' scenario, only using the wrong choice of words. I mean, I don't even think 4Kids could screw up the TC here. It has to be some sort of speech error.

    I thought it was a decent episode. Brock was especially funny. I liked Spinda's voice; it sounded fitting. TR's idea with using Meowth & the Teddiursa to lure out the Spinda was funny. I also thought it was funny how Brock kept ending up with the Spinda with a broken-heart! XD

    I thought this filler was pretty funny. I liked the running gag with Brock always getting the Spinda with the broken heart mark as other people have said. And I guess we have an idea of what Professor Ivy (Brock: "Don't say that name!") did to him since after he found out that the girl watching after the Spinda was getting engaged, he went in "Ivy" mode. Too bad for Brock...

    It was funny with the broken heart Brock stuff, I thought he'd catch that one... Otherwise, it was a pretty dull episode.

    It was which one could defeat Seedot. They chose Surskit; which aside from learning Ice Beam and Blizzard, doesn't really have an advantage at all until it evolves! I think the other choices were Delibird and Torkoal...both of which could defeat Seedot in a matter of seconds.

    ...well, I'm now completly convinced that who ever is in charge of the 'Trainers Choice' segment has absolutly no idea what they're doing.

    Judging by what many have said, this isn't going to be an episode I'll be getting up at 7:30am to watch. Were there any other humorous moments besides the heartbreak-Spinda and Brock winding up with each other all the time? And, umm...I'm betting Spinda sounded identical to Mudkip, ne?

    This episode wasn't bad for a filler. Brock was funny in this episode, especially at the end when he used Mudkip, Lotad, and Forretress to battle Team Rocket. All in all, I've seen better fillers.

    Ugh...sickening. just sickening.

    -There have been two Claire characters in the series now. The one in this ep. and of course, the Blackthorn Gym Leader. THINK OF MORE NAMES, 4KIDS!
    -Claire and Kane...yuck. Just...yuck. WAY too mushy and corny.
    -Can Team Rocket get any more stale than this? I don't think so.
    -No character development, no exciting plot, not even a good pun. Can you say, "Johto"?
    -The TC was wrong...again.

    This episode barely kept my attention. The only thing I liked was Brock's little Spinda friend. But the rest...pure Johto. If they do this again, I don't even know what I'll do.

    A dismal 3/10.

    Okay, that's it. PLEASE do some research. Clare was her name in the frickin' original version.

    well... this episode wasn't completely spectactular... Claire was kinda cute... somewhat...

    I liked the Spinda with the broken heart... I think it should have been named "Lucky", out of irony or something

    and as for the Trainer's Choice... no comment... I actually predicted they would choose Surskit -_-

    I never really considered it before, but I like the comment noted earlier that this could very well explain how Brock acted after leaving Ivy. After all, he would be even more devestated than he was here if he had given up everything to stay with her (liek Ivy) only to find Ivy already had a love interest or fell in love with someone else. I say it's the best theory out there (much better than the "Ivy raped Brock" theory). ^_^

    The episode was far from the greatest but it was hardly as bad as you make it out to be. It was an amusing episode, which is all it was designed to be so that's okay by me. Not every episode can incldue a life-changing event, and what would you expect from a Spinda episode except wacky hilarity?

    -There have been two Claire characters in the series now. The one in this ep. and of course, the Blackthorn Gym Leader. THINK OF MORE NAMES, 4KIDS!
    And there are dozens of people with the exact same first AND last names in most large individual cities, let alone states and countries. It's hardly a crime that a few Pokemon characters have the same name as another character introduced earlier.

    -Claire and Kane...yuck. Just...yuck. WAY too mushy and corny.
    Not a romance fan I take it, though that makes you seem a bit biased considering very little fo the episode was at all mushy. It wasn't even until the end that the romantic plot was revealed.

    -Can Team Rocket get any more stale than this? I don't think so.
    To me they seemed a bit fun and original (for them at least) actually, what with the way they got effected by the Spinda attacks, Jessie's obsession with acting etc.

    TR: "We're blasting off in shame!"

    -The TC was wrong...again.
    I think they must have thought Seedot was Grass/Dark like its evolutions. If it was then Surskit could be the right choice, since Bug would do 4x damage, rather than Ice doing 2x damage. Although the only Bug type move Surskit could get is Hidden Power Bug...

    This episode barely kept my attention. The only thing I liked was Brock's little Spinda friend. But the rest...pure Johto. If they do this again, I don't even know what I'll do.
    It had some things going for it:

    1. Some clever dialogue (Butler: "He is a strange little man").
    2. Newly showcased attacks (Teeter Dance and Dizzy Punch had never been seen in the anime before).
    3. Brock actually using his Pokemon, and actually using Forretress for something worthwhile.
    4. Some good discussion foreshadowing the fifth gym battle and a few other episodes, a good recap for all those involved, especially those with short memories.

    If I were to assign a number I'd give the episode a 6/10, mostly because I tend to like action-orientented episodes more. As a hilarity/goofy type episode, it was probably closer to a 7 or 8/10.

    For the Trainer's Choice, based on type, Delibird should have been the best choice, followed by Surskit, then Seel.

    Brock was hilarious in this episode. I knew he wasn't going to catch the broken heart Spinda, but it seemed fitting if he did.

    That comment about Team Rocket already being confused was funny too

    Overall, this was a very funny episode, 7/10

    Saving grace of this epi. They didn't name the guy Alex. I was sitting there, in dread for them to call him Alex. At least they didn't. Because Alex and Claire are the names of me and my sister. (Me being Alex. Where do you think I came up with the name Al?)

    Surskit doesn't know any bug attacks. Besides, Seedot is not a Dark type. Pokemon Fan, why do you justify their being stupid with them being stupid?

    Poor Brock, he just doesn't get a break. However, he did do better against Team Rocket than Kane. Brock pwned, a nice surprise.

    Team Rocket, annoying as always.

    The heartbreak Spinda certainly liked Brock. It was funny that he liked it about as much as a zit.

    You got it right V Faction, about as Johto as Hoenn gets. 3.5/10

    Actually, I believe one of the Kangaskhan used dizzy punch in "The Kangaskhan Kid".

    I think this was a funny episode. Team Rocket and Brock were who made it funny...and Teeter Dance too. Forgot that was a attack. 6.8/10

    This was terrible, bad, disgusting (but a work of art compared to what followed)
    The only good thing about this episode was Brock and the Brocken (I am going to use that) heart Spinda. And maybe some good TR moments.
    Overall I give it a 2.7 out of 10.
    Scrubs (My Cold Shower) JD's closing Monolouge: As I looked at all the relationships around me, Some that had gone on forever, (Cox and Jordan) Some that were reigniting, (Carla and Turk) And some that were had just begun, (Elliot and Keith) I realized something.

    It should have been me. (In reference to Elliot while he is taking a cold shower.)
    YES, JElliot is coming back. Screw Elliot Keith, and all its backers.
