    This was a good episode. It was great to see the ol' starters again. There were some pretty funny lines in here, too. I liked how May and Bulbasaur got along. It started out a bit slow, but I still liked this one.

    *squeals* Charmander~! Kawaii as ever, but still has Zippo's voice. I've always preferred the original Charmander voice(before Ritchie was introduced); it was cuter IMO.-^_^- Nice to see Prof. Oak; it's been a good while since we've seen him in a decent role! I like that TR kept referencing the starters as babies; since technically they just hatched.(Remember what level hatched Pokés are at first in the games?) Nice foreshadowing with May and Bulbasaur...The part with them shaking hands(vines in Bulby's case) was so cute!^_^ Overall...9/10. BTW, what was the 'TR getting drunk' thing I'm hearing about?(as in, when did it happen?) Guess they drunk a bit too much sake.^_^;

    I think I'm the only one here who gets nauseated with the glaringly obvious "buddy-buddy" hints.

    "Hey, were going to let May capture Bulbasaur soon, so we'll let this Bulbasaur stand out from the other starters and have it tickle May's fancy!"

    Puh-lease. Next thing you know, they'll have Ash shag a Tropius because they want him to get 'aquainted' with one before his next capture. Careful Ash, it wants your "Pokéballs"!

    VERY good episode. I was surprised. I was very entertained by it.

    The Good:
    -A whole butt-load of Pokemon were in the ep, which is always good.

    -Team Rocket drunk....Yes.

    -A chance to see the old Kanto starters with their old voices again. So good. I actually had my love for Bulbasaur re-kindled by this ep, so I must now restart LG and choose Bulba. ^_^

    -The Poochyena from the beginning of Hoenn was back again, and cuter, too.

    -Team Rocket was actually smart in this episode, and they made me laugh.

    The Bad:
    -Max....Ugh...After last week's ep, I just can't stand that little b.itch of a kid. I mean, I hated him before "Balance of Power", but now, just seeing him in the eps take the episode down half of a point.

    Overall: 9.5/10. Damn Max.

    I just liked it when Professor Oak revived the classic Security Camera spoofing trick, putting a static picture in front of it to make TR think Oak (and then assumming) May and Max were still there. That was a real classic you know! Oh and does anyone know the history of that trick (in movies or TV)?

    I saw something like that in a movie about a bus that had to speed around a city keeping its speed over 50, and if its speed dropped, it would explode. I think it was called "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down"...

    Seriously, though, that was a great sequence. Jessie's face upon realizing she'd been had was priceless.

    Yeah, that was probably my favorite part of the whole episode. It was just so hilarious that the only thing on the security camera monitor was Ookido-Hakase doing that cheesy pose.XD

    Other than that, it was cool to see the Rocket-dan finally make their own base, even though it ended up getting demolished.XP It was also nice to see all the Kanto starters again, even though as V Faction said, it was rather annoying to have Haruka take a liking to that Fushigidane only two episodes before she captures her own. And I thought it was kinda neat that Odomaki Hakase had that Pochiena working for him now, helping him track everyone down.

    Dubwise, I can't comment on anything as I slept through it yet again. I swear my alarm clock has some serious issues. It works sometimes, then it just doesn't.XP

    This was an average episode. I liked it, but it wasn't great. I liked seeing old pokemon like Charmander and Squirtle again. And Treecko, since all we hear about now is Grovyle. It was funny when Birch almost hit that lady asleep on her Camerupt hayride!

    I liked this episode. It was great to see Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle and Professor Oak. Brings back good old memories... I thought Max was hilarious on this episode! Too bad the Kanto starters didn't like him as much as he liked them in the beginning. XD TR getting drunk was also funny. I was surprised by that part, even thought I guess I shouldn't have been. It was sweet to see May & Bulbasaur bonding. Overall, a nice episode.

    That LADY? *sputter* *guffaw* I don't think Professor Oak would like being called a lady.

    I'm pretty sure Geki was referring to the lady driving. Oak was just asleep in the back.

    I don't understand? He has an immature moment in the previous episode, apologizes quite sincerely, but it still makes you hate him so much more than before? When it comes to little kids you have to be more lenient I think. ^_^

    Not bad for a filler.

    • May shakes Bubasaurs' Vine. A sweet moment.
    • TR gets drunk! ^_^ Can you Imagine the hangover they have?
    • Kanto starters and Prof. Oak make an apperance. Just like the good ol' Days!


    Overall, a good episode. 9/10

    about TR's drunk sence:

    I just noticed that not only were they congratulating themselves on their base and capturing the starters, but they were also commenting on finding an underground spring.

    was this in the japanese version as well?

    because if this wasn't, was 4Kids trying to hint that they got the "water" from that spring or something?

    Well, it says here that it was water in the original, so I wouldn't be surprised if that line was in there, too.

    Anyway, good episode. It's good to see May liking Bulbasaur, and we see some interesting stuff from Max, too.

    Wow high ratings here, I didn't expect this
    I thought it was so so, Birch was good and nice to see Oak again, Kanto starters yes yes very nice, but an episode with max as the main character was always going to bite
    An average, or not in this case seen as the other ratings have been so high, 6/10

    A Max episode happens rarely but this is the worst Max episode yet. But it is a good episode. 8/10 good Kanto pokemon, Oaka nd Birch, May showed lots of hints to her catching a bulbasaur didn't she?

    This episode was great, it has everything. One of the best Advanced Challenge episodes AND we got to see a Bulbasaur ^_^
    It was good to see Max, May and Prof Oak have the spotlight in the episode. I loved seeing 6 of the starters, we haven't seen the Kanto starters for ages.
    There were so many Pokemon at the end. Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, Skitty, Pikachu, Lombre, Poochyena and Mudkip.

    Overall 9.1/10
    Excellent episode and had "Advanced Adventure" in it!

    So when did Ash get to talk to Prof. Oak? I mean he hasn't seen his mentor in ages... let's just say I hope that Ash got a chance to catch up with Oak before they continued with their journey... sorry I have no life

    I just got an e-mail that says that when the episode was aired in the U.K., Team Rocket's champagne glasses weren't edited. Could this be another Kids' WB! edit?

    The first time I heard the title, I thought that some buff dude will show up and go against Ash.

    It is by far one of the best episodes of Pokemon. The Indigo and Hoenn Starter Pokemon make the Jotho Starters look bad.

    You realize that the reason so many Kanto Pokemon are present in this is because of FireRed and LeafGreen. That prescence sorta detracts from and undermines the whole Advance Generation motif.
    Honk if you prefer the Japanese version to the English dub!
