    James' sentence:˝It appears we walked into a brouhaha.˝, along with the act of snatching the key under hazy premises was something that made me laugh. An interesting introduction into the Mayhem TG will cause.

    Great episode, or at least it was decent. Nice to see Charon debut and just seeing Team Galactic again, along with Looker.

    8/10
    It was decent alright, but not excellent. There wasn't anything to move Team Galactic's plan further.

    TG going off to Mt Coronet? Ooh, the hot lead is going to be flying all over the place, courtesy of yours truly.

    - Ash & the gang come into proximity of Mt. Coronet, when they find a bunch of blue Shellos.
    - Then, they find a pink Shellos, which is pinned down on a rock inside a piece of rapids. Man, that guy is pit-i-ful. The gang, being a sentimental bunch, decide to help it out.
    - Once they've gotten it out of trouble, they find out that this particular Shellos got lost. Then, Looker arrives & tells them that there's something unusual going down in Mt. Coronet.
    - He couldn't be any more correct, as TG is inside the mountain. Saturn, with the help of Charon, is tasked to find the hell-if-I-know gateway inside some ruins.
    - They plan on using the Spear Key to open the Gateway, & once that's done, they plan on getting Dialga & Palkia to bring about a new world order.
    - Speaking of which, TR is planning on stealing the Spear Key, but TG is smart enough to leave someone on guard duty...
    - Back with Ash & the gang, they're trying to escort Shellos back to the western side of Sinnoh. Problem is, they came into a seemingly man-made downward cave, & by the time they got close to it, the outcropping that they're standing on gives way, & they fall to their deaths... Okay, not really...
    - What actually happened is that they've fallen deeper into the network of caves. They try to navigate through this network...
    - ...only to end up finding TG. That's beautiful... now they're tied up between a rock & a hard place.
    - Just then, a rather unusual-looking TG grunt joins the scene, but it actually turns out to be Looker in disguise. After calming down the Shellos & "tightening" the gang's snares, he reveals his true colors...
    - ...& this is where the fun begins! Come on, Looker! Beat the @$%# out of them!!!
    - What strikes me is the fact that the TG grunts are wielding pipes instead of... oh, I don't know... automatic rifles/sub-machine guns. But of course, this anime is for children that are a friggin' month old...
    - That aside, Looker gets overwhelmed & back-flips over to higher ground... just as TG finds the ruins that they're looking for.
    - Then right on cue, TR comes to steal the Spear Key. They recite their motto, but thankfully for me, Charon came prepared with his own motto breaker, in the form of a legion of Golbat.
    - The Golbat Legion recovers the Spear Key, & Saturn commands his haXX0red Toxicroak to bash away at the walls.
    - They eventually find the ruins inside, & they bring along the Spear Key. There's only one problem: it's not responding. That meant that they've got the wrong place.
    - With that all said, TG flees the scene like wee little babies. The gang attempt to pursue them, but the Golbat Legion covers their escape.
    - To add insult to injury, the whole network gets flooded, but Looker is one step ahead, as he has brought along an inflatable dinghy, which "safely" whisks the whole gang away out to the west side of the mountain.
    - Once they're outside, it turns out that the flood was a blessing in disguise; it has plugged up the entire network that TG had made, so now the Shellos can't wander off to the other side.
    - Speaking of which, they've now managed to reunite the stray Shellos to its original herd, so now everything is normal, or so they think...

    Now this is what the Looker introduction episode should've been. It has told us a bunch of important information about him that was lacking in the last episode that Looker was in. Combined with the TG line, & this is an episode that raises hell.

    Background on Looker + explanation of Galactic's plans + Looker and Galactic appearing in the first place = clearly not filler. Why can't people stop throwing that label on random episodes without thinking?

    Which makes no sense to begin with, since Shellos are Water types so it isn't blocked for them at all... -_- ...although I guess seeing a flooded cave/tunnel would be more of a red flag to them that they aren't supposed to be there than some random cave/tunnel would be.

    Also consider that there could've been BLUE Shellos lost on the wrong side as well, and both BLUE and PINK Shellos still in the cave, trapped forever more.

    A big rock slide does not a solution make.

    I do love the VA's they've given all the Galactic cast members though.

    This episode was quite funny in some way. I just cant explain it. X3 But still, I loved Charons voice, reminds me of Eggman.

    I totally lawl'd when Charon said this was the wrong part of the mountain to the ruins. XD

    Enjoyed this episode. Thought shellos was so cute and enjoyed its antics with piplup. Also enjoyed all the Team Galatica stuff as well and also Looker being revealed as a poilice officer and also the violence bit as well. Enjoyed Tean Rockets part in this episode as well. So yeah it was a good episode but I wouldnt count it as a filler but not as a main episode either somewhere along the middle for me

    Just b/c an episode is boring doesn't mean it's a filler. If u want a filler, go watch that Marill, Piplup, and Elekid episode as well the 1 with Misdreavis and Murkrow.
    Ash's team right now

    It was a good episode. I find it weird how they pronouce Charon's name, it sounds like Karon, but alright I guess. The fight scene with Looker and the grunts was awesome.

    Very awesome! I like how Looker just happened to have a pocket-sized inflatable raft in his pocket! Definitely reminded me of James Bond.

    I actually liked this episode a lot. The Galactic part, at least. Mind the Shellos. Saturn is cool as ever, and Charon is the freak I've imagined him to be. I love how Galactic just ties them up and throws them in a corner, without anything to shut them up. That door was weird too, something that massive and hidden doesn't lead to Spear Pillar? Couldn't imagine where it could go to.

    Yawn, another episode starring Team Galactic. I can't remember much about this episode (that aired two weeks ago!) apart from the whole shellos storyline (personally, I prefer blue shellos to pink). Makes me anxious for their day when their storyline is over.

    Pluto didn't have his rapsy hoarse Japanese dub laugh ))))):
    It just wasn't the same, I was sad about that frankly. It ruined the magic of the episode to not have that in the PUSA dub as well.

    I was sort of surprised Looker smacking the grunts up was left in, maybe because 4Kid's censoring has tainted me. It was a pleasant shock I suppose to see that.

    Saturn was quality as always though!!

    The... magic? You want some magic, go eat a bowl of Lucky Charms.

    Mike Pollock did a fine job as Charon, including that cackle. As far as choices go, you can't go wrong with him.

    He had an awesome laugh. Just because it wasn't the *same* laugh doesn't make it any less awesome on its own merits.

    Watching this episode made me wonder if they'll actually continue with the Galactic storyline to introduce Heatran (doesn't really matter where, it just has to be in a volcano).

    The fighting in this episode was kinda brutal, considering this is Pokemon, but I like how Handsome is the hands on type of guy.. James Bond is actually a nice comparison.. lol, just his introduction alone would be pure brilliance: "I'm Handsome", (other person) 'ever looked in a mirror...?' Handsome again: 'that's my name -_-'..' xD

    That little Shellos was like a baby, wasn't it? I felt bad for it when it was crying while being tied up and running away. How could they be mean to something so tiny and pink and cute? It wasn't bothering them.

    Quoted for truth.

    Makes me want to go buy a Shellos plush just because of this episode.

    I don't understand why Charon joined Team Galactic... certainly not for the creation of a new world

    This episode was alright. It was cool to see the continuation to the Team Galactic plot. It was cool to see a Blue East Sea Shellos for the 1st time, I like the blue ones a lot better. It was great to see Mars, Saturn, and Pluto again. Looker's disguise as a Grunt was very good. Pluto's Wheezy laugh was very annoying to me... It was cool to see the Spear Key for the 1st time. They tried to use it, but found out that it was the wrong place to use it. It was cool to see a Pink West Sea Shellos again.
