    Default Gulpin It Down! (341)

    Gulpin It Down!

    Entering a town, Ash & Co. discover that is is overrun by Gulpin and are asked to help out since they are Pokémon trainers. However in doing so, one of the Gulpin and Ash's Treecko are accidently grown to Godzilla size proportions. Will they be stuck that way?

    Question dub title ok

    this dub title is ok but it is so obvious because -gulpin it down- is a pun on
    -gulping it down- this ep looks strange because how do treeco and gulpin get big in the first place?

    Does anyone else think that this episode would have rocked even more if it took place AFTER the grovyle evolution?

    a 50 feet grovyle in battle would have been VERY cool.

    No, I think this was a perfect time to battle as a Treecko trying hard to beat Gulpin it was good I think losing or something could have shooken up Treecko's head and made it even more determined to get Stronger then the next episode yeah.
    Thanks to whoever made this. <3

    Actually, you didnt prove squat. You see, I find a being, all-powerful, all-knowing, constant, eternal, residing outside of space, time, and logic to be a lot more logical than a big explosion created the universe by accident.
    Logic, eh? Also, note the "residing outside of space, time and logic to be more logical" part.

    Something residing out of logic to be more logical... Nice.

    Actually, I believe this Episode was originally aired during a Japanese Monster Week. It's Godzilla roots cannot be denied.

    I'll be quite interested in what Gulpin's voice will sound like.

    Professor Jacuzzi's name made me laugh. It's so similar to his Japanese name, but it's really dumb sounding at the same time. In any case, he had a nice voice that was different from the other "old man" voice this show keeps throwing at us.

    It was also nice to see all of those pokemon we rarely see anymore. Monjara and Parasect need more screentime, in my opinion.

    Probably, even though Hedorah and Gokurin look nothing alike. It wouldn't be the first giant monster-movie spoof they've done (they did an Ultraman spoof in "A Corphish Out of Water").

    Could you please elaborate on the Ultra-man Spoof. BTW, I also giggled when I heard "Professor Jaccuzi."

    Proffessor Jaccuzi reminded me of Professor Westwood

    I love those kooky scientist types

    Well, they were shot at Mach 3 high into the air. That's gotta be at least four miles away or so. And they aren't the fastest Pokémon around either. IMO, they probably were coming back, but the distance prevented us from seeing them coming!

    Ah, well. It's still my favorite episode of AG so far. Next week's also looks good.
    I agree, sometimes the animation looks like it did back in Johto. It's like the didn't use digital animation for this episode.

    It's very confusing.

    Team Rocket's motto is a spoof of the classic Ultraman villain, Baltan-Seijin. The character has big claws (like the Heigani claws that Musashi and Kojirou wore), and it was able to make after-images of itself the way Musashi and Kojirou did.

    Well this was a interesting and decent filler episode in my opinion.

    was nice to hear some old kanto bgm as well as the 'riding the boat' bgm from revelation lugia. Jenny and Joy's voices didn't sound too bad either compared to Megan's

    overall 9/10

    Hehe, I agree, zonic, that noise rocked!
    Well, I was quite surprised at this episode. Really bringing back the forgotten, aren't we? Meganium, rarely seen. Tangela, next to never seen. Parasect, about 200 some episodes ago if I remember correctly. Heavy Ball, quite forgotten. I always liked the Apricorn balls....Plus, I distinctly recognized some Kanto music when the Gulpin burst out of the sewer after the Trainer's Choice(which was odd, BTW, as Carvanha could've done just as well as Treecko). The giant battle was kinda disappointing. But, we hardly saw any TR, which is a plus. Gulpin's voice was good too, unusually.

    Overall rating:
    8.7 out of 10!!
    Somewhat nostalgic, but otherwise, not a bunch of redeeming qualities. Still worth watching though.

    Meganium has been in quite a few episodes, there is another one in a later Hoenn Episode. Parasect appeared for a bit in a late MQ episode, the one with the Magician. Tangela never got a episode to itself, but did appear in "For Whom the Bells Toll".

    My favorite lines:

    May-"Do you think they evolved?"
    Max-" Ummmmmmmmm, no!"

    Tangela's main "debut" was in Erika's GYM. She used it against Ash's Charmander, and it got a lot of screentime in that ep. It made a cameo in "For Ho-oh the bells toll", but it debuted way before that.

    Since then though it hasn't appeared again till now.

    What are you talking about? His Original name was Professor Shakuji. Sounds to me like they had a little fun with it this time.

    Today's ep was a tad above average, but it had some really good parts.

    Other than Gulpin's debut, we got to see the long and forgotten Tangela again. Tangela is definitely one of the Kanto pokemon that rarely ever appears, so I'm glad it got more screentime.

    Giant Treecko and Gulpin were amusing, and I liked the fact that they caught Gulpin with the Heavy Ball. It would have been a good idea if Brock gave that Heavy Ball to Joy, since he never used his, but I guess not.

    There was also some classic Pokemon battle music played during this episode.

    It also looks like Joy and Jenny have their new voices, but whoever is doing them does a good job imitating the old Joy/Jenny VA.

    Here's hoping Veronica Taylor, Eric Stuart, Rachael Lilis, etc. never leave 4kids.
