    Its not funny to see the innocent get punished without redemption or anything.

    Another thing: TR disguises were probably some of the worst in the series, they didnteven try

    You're joking, right? If this is the episode where TR dressed up as May's family it was hilarious.

    And if you think these disguises were bad you haven't seen their terrible ones in many other fillers.

    The disguises were FUNNY, but not convincing. They use much worse ones later on, but at the time this aired, they were almost unrivaled in terms of convincability (I cant spell).

    They tried back in OI.

    Jessie and James looked exactly like Norman and Caroline.

    I was referring to Meowth and Wobbuffet, those were awful.

    It's supposed to be funny. Meowth and Wobbufett looking like May and Max was amusing.

    Meowth also dressed as many other short people and girls in the show. It's quite funny to see it pulled off.

    A Double Dilemma

    I really was looking forward to this episode when I read the summary…I really was. But then I watched it…

    This episode begins with Ash and co. arriving at a town filled with annoying May and Max fanboys/girls. It starts off okay, with May and Max being piled on by the crowd, but then once Ash shows his badges and announces that he wants to challenge Norman, it all goes downhill from there. What follows is 15+ minutes of Ash torture. This kinda reminds me of the Avatar Day episode from Avatar: The Last Airbender (which is the main reason I wanted to watch it so badly), but whereas the Avatar Day episode was funny, and had a good ending, this was the exact opposite. Most of the humor in this episode derives from Ash bashing, which is one of the lowest forms of comedy. Avatar Day had Aang bashing, too (sort of), but at least it was explained. In this episode, there's no rhyme or reason.

    Meanwhile, Team Rocket (and Wobbuffet) disguises themselves as the Maple family. The human disguises are decent, but the Pokemon disguises aren’t. It wouldn’t be so bad if FANBOYS/GIRLS could recognize them, but no, they don’t. Anyway, back to Ash. The whole town decides that he’s not worthy of battling their “pwecious” Norman (wouldn’t fanboys/girls want to see their idol ‘crush’ Ash?), so one guy with a Golduck challenges him, and loses. Then a bunch of other people challenge him, and also lose. The old lady then gets MAY to challenge him, and since most of his Pokemon are tired out (and they won’t even give him the time to heal them), he is forced to use Taillow. Ash is doing good, but then May spams Torchic’s Ember, and it hits…Ash. This declares May the winner, which is stupid.

    To finally put an end to this episode, Team Rocket gets exposed, Ash has Pikachu beat them, and it looks like the townspeople have finally gained respect for him…but then they praise Pikachu, and STILL brush Ash off. What happens next? Like in most other episodes, they just head off to the next town, without even so much as an apology from EITHER May and/or any of the townspeople.

    Worst. Episode. Ever!

    Who the Pokemon greenlit this episode (reference to a lame line from the same episode)? This is a disgrace – to BOTH Pokemon AND Avatar: The Last Airbender!

    Side note: Isn't it ironic that the episode with the initials "ADD" is the one I can't sit through?
