    This ep... Where do I start?

    Not only was only 1/3 the ep about Gible, the other 2/3s where more on shippin', which would make sense if the ep's called like "Ash and Dawn's Love Life!" or somethin'.

    Kazunari catches Gible. No Ash argument over that.

    Really, this ep's just so bland, it wasn't funny. Even the Trapinch cameo in this ep was better than whatever Gible was doin' (Though Kazunari's fishin' idea was funny).

    Ash not getting Gible=instant fail. Seriously. OK, everyone. Grab your torches and pitchforks and meet me in Japan! We're forming an angry mob and storming the writers' homes!

    I also laughed at how people thought the ep would be a copy of the Totodile ep from the Johto era.

    The writers. Definitely. For far too long, they've deprived Ash of a Dragon-type for no good reason. I mean, back in Kanto, sure, because the Dragon-type was seen as only manageable by experienced trainers! But now, Ash IS an experienced trainer! He's participated in four different Pokemon league tournaments, he's conquered the Battle Frontier, he's taken down four different legendary Pokemon! Doesn't Ash deserve to be treated like the veteran trainer he is? Doesn't he deserve a badass Pokemon like Gible, and eventually, Garchomp? I know he does! And I hate the writers for not realizing this!

    Gible's not even close to badass, and I'm sick of hearin' that. I do realize it's a general opinion, but I can only see Gible as a fatty shark-thing with its mouth being 1/2 of its body.

    Kazunari probably has a "Jaw" theme team, anyway. Gible's a perfect companion to his Totodile imo.

    I couldn't agree more! This was the BEST chance for Ash to finally catch a true Dragon type, and while I'm disappointed Ash didn't catch it, I kinda knew in the back of my head he wouldn't. Sigh......

    He should've caught that one Trapinch in the episode. That would've been cool.

    Ash will never be an experienced trainer because he wins all his battles based on luck. That being said, he still should be getting a Dragon,Psychic, Ghost, Steel, or Dark pokemon one of these years. Oh, and the character that did happen to catch Gible has an awful design.

    That's so not true. He won all his battles based on his smart strategy.
    Ash's team right now

    lol

    Anyway, this episode isn't filler, and it normally would qualify as a fairly decent episode. Fukamaru is absolutely hilarious, and the rock-smashing-on-head "battle" made the episode worth the crap that was the rest of it.

    Oh, so that's how they're going to plot-device Takeshi out this time? Because no way can we have 5 characters at one time!

    I'll be honest, I have at least not hated all the supporting characters of Sinnoh. But I honestly have no desire to ever see this Johto duo ever, ever again. They get on my nerves a great deal.

    Also, awesome how outrageous Pokemon lose all personality after they get captured, isn't it?

    No surprise on Ash not getting it, but I didnt expect the other guy to actually get it. i thought they'd pull some cheesy thing where they both decide to let Gible be.

    Grrr! I'm officially fed up with what they've done! They've gone too far this time to give a rookie a Dragon-type, while Ash who is clearly experienced is deprived of one! Why do they have this "no dragon/dark/psychic/steel/ghost (he let Haunter go?)-type" rule on Ash anyway? It would make Ash's team a whole lot more interesting...grrrr....

    So how did that manage to happen ? Did Ash let him have Gible or did he screw up and Kazunari got lucky ?

    Thanks for answering, seems like the writers have a grudge against Ash having any Dragon types >_<

    I really wanted Ash to catch Gible like he caught krabby long ago. What's wrong with more than six pokemon? If you want to catch it then catch it. As for the the writers, they seems to really don't focus on Ash's success anymore. However, I think they focus too much elsewhere. Barry, Jessie, Dawn, Piplup, team galatic, and other random characters who show up and disappear in the end.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Who's Kanzu? (English please)

    plus Ash doesn't DESERVE a Dragon Type! He would waste their talent...

    Yup...

    Dude! You ever seen Charizard?! He goes into a battle, snorts smoke then stomps on the floor, causing the pokemon to go flying! He uses a weak gust with no effort into it to blow it away in an episode

    He destroys almost everything! He defeated a Legendary Pokemon (in anime that's saying something). Honestly, in anime, Type means nothing.

    He can pick anything up and send them crashing with Seismic Toss!

    I can do sooooo much to you. Be happy I'm tired

Kazunari is a up and coming trainer, and Ash saw this as an opportunity to give him a nice push on the start of his journey. Think about it: If you were Kazunari and you saw potentially one of the strongest pokemon in the entire world, wouldn't you do anythign to get it? Wouldn't you be ****** that a guy who has been traveling for at least 3 to 4 years get an extremly rare pokemon while you miss you chance out of a maybe once in a lifetime opportunity. Beleive it or not, this is the nicest thing Ash has ever done for someone. Now Kazunari has something in his aresenal that will help him tremendously in his journey.
    ^This is winsauce and the truth. Ash is somewhat wise, just immature. He's also kind, he's not like Paul or anything. He doesn't need it. Ash gets like one strong pokemon per team (Just really tough and strong)

    Kanto he gets Charizard.

    Hoenn....Sceptile

    Sinnoh...I do not know. Some are alright some suck some are good. Can't tell until this season is over

    Go figure, this episode sounds like the worst ever. oh well *Picks up pitch forks and torches*

    The writers made enough mistakes with giving cool pokemon to others, but to a rookie who has no more than a totadile, they have crossed the line big time
