    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......

    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.

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

    That actually reminded me of that one Flygon in the Jirachi movie. When I was younger, I actually believed Ash was goin' to catch it. XP

    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 >_<

    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

    LMAO, as if you people really thought Ash was going to capture something with a full team of 6.

    Please.

    my guess is he screwed up and kazunari got to gible first. but from what i know of kazunari i dont think his totodile should have been able to battle it

    So, "Worst Episode Ever" = Your bloated expectations of a plot event not actually occuring?
    At least wait until you have actually seen the episode before making such ridiculous calls. No more whining about the thing from this point, please.

    Personally, I'm glad they gave Kazunari something interesting to do. He was quite bland in his first two episodes, with Kotone stealing much of the spotlight from him.

    EDIT: It hit me that this is already becoming the new Ambipom. I will not hesitate to delete any future post that involves nothing but cursing the writers (and seriously, the death threats are totally unacceptable), whining incessantly about your dissatisfaction with the event, or just simply not squarely discussing the episode itself.
