    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.

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

    Gulpin goes "Gulp, Gulp" and it also does a hillarious belching noise! I am pretty sure it is a dub voice. However, Meganium, Tangela, and Parasect keep their original voice. Professor Jaccuzi sounded like Professor Westwood. They kept a few pieces of original music, including the music that played when Jaccuzi was launching the Gulpin out of cannons, I have never heard that music in the dub. I am pretty sure it was from one of the first three movies.

    I wanna hear what Ash's Grovyle sounds like! I hope they make it sound tougher then the one from "WYSIWYG"

    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.

    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.

    Another great Episode. It had a weird Kanto feeling, to tell you the truth. This string of episodes leading up to the Petalburg Gym has always been my favorite.

    -Gulpin's voice was highly creative and required no work. Tamer Zack was right, it sounded like Walrein some bit, only the Gulpin didn't fully pronounce their name during the episode. They also had that wicked burp effect from Sludge. And speaking of voices, I guess Meganium went and kept the Japanese voice, Parasect still sounds like it's old self, and Tangela... well, who care about Tangela ^_^

    -Very interesting TC, for the fact that Treecko was the best choice (doesn't sound like a lot, but it's big enough for TC). Carvanha's defense would've placed it in 2nd, and Shedinja with it's Rock weaknesses definitely takes Third.

    -I like Megan Hollingshead's replacement when she does Officer Jenny. It sounds nearly identical to the real thing. I'm still getting used to her Joy though...

    -Heavy Ball!!

    -TR getting flattened at the end: Extremely Nice.

    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".

    Missed most of it because I was having a heart to hear with my Dad. Though I got to see the King sized battle. Uber destruction, you can't beat it.

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

    Pretty decent filler episode. It was a good way to display new pokémon without having a random trainer of the week, it kinda reminded me of "Sparks Fly For Magnemite" but with a new twist to it. The professor was a nice character, it's been a while since we've seen anyone like him. It was also good to see the heavy ball making it's first appearance since early Johto. It's nice to see they haven't forgotten about them and adds a good feeling of continuity to the series.

    As far as the dub goes, I was really surprised how much of the original music was kept. During the part where Brock is holding the Pokéblock and the Gulpin start to attack, the part when all the Gulpin come out of the manhole and everyone have to fight them back with their pokémon, and when the professor is using his particle beam to get rid of the Gulpin, all the original music was kept (as well as TR's motto theme, but that's usually kept anyway)- definately a plus.

    It's still going to take some time for me to get used to Nurse Joy's new voice actor, but I think she does Jenny very well.

    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.

    Quick Correction: Megan was the previous Voice for them. The new VA was used in this episode (and some prior).

    Looking at the Heavy Ball segment, I'm amazed at how far the series has come. Back in Kanto, a giant Pokemon (say, for example... a giant onix! *wink wink*) could be captured no-sweat with a regular Pokeball. But now it's become more sophisticated and complex, and enoyable to watch as they try to figure out the best solution to a dilemma.

    Heh, oops. <_< Uh, I knew that, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.

    Really though, this is what happens when you don't get enough sleep.:P
