    Holy crap, I think this episode's dub title beats "Take the Lombre Home" as the best dub title in the show's history. I love these musical references that nobody else gets except me!

    This episode was meh before and it's meh now. This is the start of seeing Swellow more though, and that makes me happy.

    Okay, the TC has Sealeo, Shiftry, and Exploud against Tyrogue, right? All are weak against Fighting. However, I guess since Tyrogue is a baby, the best choice would be to go with the strongest there: Exploud. I think it has a higher defense compared to Shiftry. Heh, maybe these are starting to make sense after all...

    May officially scares me now O.o. In that flashback, her eyes were green, but in the present, they're blue O.O.........
    The poofy hair was odd looking, especially with Seviper, Cacnea, and Wobuffet.
    Shuppet had a good voice, and so did Seviper, I noticed. Really brutal sounding.
    Emily was a pretty dull character, Just popped up out of nowhere and claimed Shuppet. One of the worse Trainer-of-the-Days.

    Overall rating:
    8.5 out of 10!!
    Not too impressive of a filler. I'm glad they used Shuppet's feeding off of hatred ability though. That was a great touch to the episode.

    This was pretty much a rip off of "The Tower of Terror", except Max didn't die.

    Good points:
    -Shuppet's dub voice
    -Shuppet's cute
    -Thing with the hair was funny.

    Bad points:
    -kinda spontaneous
    -what happened to Mudkip?
    -"Tower of Terror" rip off

    Ash didn't so much die in that one as he had an out of body experience.

    It's not that they mix up the names of the Pokemon, it's just that 4kids made the text for "Nuzleaf" and are too lazy to switch it.

    4kids knows what a Nuzleaf looks like, they're just too lazy to change the text for all these Trainer choices.

    Weird. Most of the Advanced episodes I have have Who's That Pokemon near the start of the episode. Some of the episodes before this one even has Burning Battlefield for the credits for some reason and some have various different tracks.

    Leave it to Veronica to screw up the perfect Title. Oh well. -_-

    Not all that impressive of an episode. I have to agree with many that it's a "Tower of Terror" ripoff. (Except ToT was a lot funnier.)

    Talk about timing. The Pokemon cast decided to show their support of the Pistons by sporting their Wallace 'fros. Come Pistons, it do or die tonight.

    EDIT: Trainer's Choice. DUSTOX IS THE BEST CHOICE FRAK IT!

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

    A good thing about this episode is that they played on the sibling rivalry between May and Max again. In a lot of episodes they don't even acknowledge that they're siblings, so it's nice to see another episode like that.

    The May and Max scenes were cute, and Jessie's "Oh I may throw up" line was perfect at that scene. Great delivery.

    I see Torchic got some last screentime in this episode, as we're not going to see it around much longer.

    And dear god, did May just pull Brock by the ear? PLEASE NO, don't tell me May will start pulling Brock by the ear in every episode now. This is one of Misty's worst habits that I DON'T want to see May start doing that.

    Anyway, I'm really loving the way Veronica Taylor has evolved May's voice, she does a wide range of emotions with her which is great.

    ...You did NOT just say that, CC. You know very well that May doesn't go around pulling Brock's ear like Misty did. I mean, you watch all the new Japanese episodes, too, right? o_o

    Not really, I don't like spoiling myself a whole episode in Japanese. I watch most episodes for the first time from 4kids.

    You probably didn't pay any attention to what May was saying when she pulled Brock's ear. She clearly said, "it's just like it's fate that ordained me to take over for Max!". Meaning, she only pulled his ear because Max wasn't there to do it. So assuming she'll start pulling Brock's ear in every episode is wrong.

    I'm also surprised no one mentioned how funny it was to see TR yelling at each other and then have Shuppet use his powers on them. Then TR started saying nice stuff like, "Isn't life grand?" or something like that.

    Good entertaining episode, but I was annoyed at how stupid the writers/drawers were for this. I mean... come on... we got this during Kanto. Did they not expect the old fans to still be watching it? That this would be "new" to everyone? They should be ashamed. There are plenty of things you can do with ghost Pokemon, so it shouldn't always have to revolve around an "abandoned/haunted house".

    Another note: Totally surprised at how small Swellow was. Which is probably why they had Taillow evolve if you think about it. Swellow is too small for Ash to ride, which is perfect. They reason they ditched Pidgeot was because Ash could fly on it... and you don't want Ash flying all over the place reaching the destination faster right? So that's probably why Ash gets to keep the Swellow.
    Cloning is a glitch in the game. Abusing a glitch is cheating. Therefore, if you clone. You cheat.
    The cloning glitch may or may not screw up your Emerald game, but I hope it'll screw up your Diamond/Pearl game if and when you trade it over.

    IF YOU CHEAT, YOU'RE A PATHETIC LOSER!

    This episode, IMO, had two main purposes and besides them it could have been completely forgotten about. ONE - introduce Shuppet and TWO - give Torchic its last screen times and Swellow more screen time so that we don't forget it evolved last episode.

    The trainer choice, again, disappointed me. I voted for Dustox to win that one because since Tyrogue is a Fighting type, Dustox learns, on its own, Psychic moves. But they went with Normal type Exploud, which confused me greatly. Oh well, I guess what someone said about it having more defense power to counter is a good idea, but Distox still learns attacks that counter Tyrogue's whole element.

    This episode was uniquely funny - the poofy hair, and James' line "Blaming a man for wanting something to eat is hitting below the belt" (or something like that) made me laugh real hard.

    Besides that, this episode was like Tower of Terror and that early Shroomish episode (where the Shroomish were attacking workers out of a house for it was their home) mixed together. It was good and I loved Shuppet. It's voice matched up perfectly. So, overall - a 8.9 out of 10. Pretty good for a filler I say.

    Eye color can change as you get older.

    The choices for TC were Sealeo, Exploud, or Dustox vs Tyrouge. They chose Exploud but Dustox was a better choice. 4x resistance and knows Psychic attacks.

    I think they considered the fact that Dustox is a horrible pokemon in that TC.

    Ya, probably because it belongs to TeamRocket... so 4kids didn't bat an eye on Dustox.

    Do you really think all the people here who've seen the Japanese episodes live in Japan? XD We obtain the episodes via 'other' means.
