    After watching the episode, I have to say Gible was awesome.

    But mostly it was fun. Gible is fun. It isn't serious, it isn't angry or uber, it just plain FUN. It ate TR's machine, it had no idea what it was doing when it was attacking, and that apple scene was hilarious. Also, it looks like it can fight some, and hopefully training will make it a bit better.

    It's no Gliscor, but that'll do shark, that'll do.

    For me, I noticed both. By which I mean, I know what they were going for in that shot, but... I cannot lie, and you other posters can't deny, that when Jessie's round thing was in Gible's face it got SPRUNG... on to her hair.

    One of the best episodes I've seen in a while.

    Haven't seen so many anime expressions used since season 1 and I hope they keep it up because it does breath some life into an episode.

    I love this fandom, it's totally hilarious! One minute 90% of the fandom are crying & whining over the loss of Gliscor and swearing to never ever watch another episode of the series ever again, and the next minute 90% of the fandom are praising the writers for delivering THE.BEST.MOST.EPIC.EPISODE.EVER!

    This just goes to show that we shouldn't underestimate the writers, give them a little more credit, and that DP truly is the most unpredictable saga ever.

    The only hilarious part that wasn't mentioned was right before gible attack jesse... with wobbuffet running back and forth with the random duct tape.

    My favorite parts
    the first gible scene first time it attacks ash
    when it jumps into dawns arms dawns smiling while its biting piplup still
    staraptor :huh ahhhhhhh lmao
    piplup constantly being attacked

    FUNNIEST EPISODE EVER
    next episode looks pretty funny too

    Gible's a pretty good character. I still think Gliscor could have been sent to Oak's rather then ditched but meh..

    I guess Gible's a nice replacement. Let's just hope it doesn't turn out like Noctowl whose personality faded after it's debut episode.

    Gible eating Team Rocket's mecha was the best part. I can't wait to see it eating Barry's bike next week.

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    Same, I mean, Dawn had quite the range of expressions. I haven't seen that... in... well... ever.

    This was hilarity overload. And I don't understand a lick of Japanese. Proves to you that comedy is universal.

    This just goes to show that we shouldn't underestimate the writers, give them a little more credit, and that DP truly is the most unpredictable saga ever.
    I'd been anticipating this episode for some time. And it was well worth the wait.

    Agreed. I actually couldn't believe what was happening (likewise for Team Rocket). I'd love to see it chow down on Barry's bike, just to see his horrific expression.

    Hah! Then Ash'll will have 2 Pokemon responsible for bicycle damage. Do Ash's Pokemon have something against bikes, or are bikes just destined for destruction?

    It's good that Gible was so much fun. The Writers sure didn't waste anytime replacing Gliscor did they? In fact I think Dawns Ambipom was the only Pokemon who wasn't replaced right away. Jessie got Yanmega right after the Wallace Cup which was near Dustox's release. Gible was basically waiting for Gliscor to leave, yet Ambipom's replacement took rather long to get here. Oh well, Ash's Gible looks to be cool and I actually kinda want it to stay a Gible just because it was so much fun.

    This episode had better be goddamn awesome to make up for all the drama surrounding the Gliscor release & Gible capture.


    -The main characters start off this episode by...being completely lost!
    -A bright light goes up in the sky and explodes like fireworks, so Our Heroes decide to go that way because hey, why not?
    -But wait, what's that rustling in the bushes? Why it's a...DRAMABOMB!
    -AshnCo find an old lady and an Altaria that uses Draco Meteor, and gaze in awe...before realizing that they're right where the Draco Meteors are going to land. Amazingly, they don't die from the hail of energy.
    -The old lady and Altaria are pretty calm about nearly killing two small children and one horny teenager.
    -Blah blah explanations blah
    -LANDSHARK FIN RACING THROUGH THE GROUND(which looks suspiciously like a bunch of yellow and brown generic background lines)
    -"Ash:Hi gible, I'm Ash. *extends hand in greeting* Gible:...*CHOMP*" I like this thing already!
    -That old lady's pretty agile.
    -I like how they picked the least draconic Dragon Type possible to demonstrate Draco Meteor.
    -Gible appears and tries to use Draco Meteor!
    -But it fails and the energy ball falls right back down at AshnCo. The humans run away, and Piplup takes a direct hit!
    -Why is Ash helping Gible learn Draco Meteor instead of, you know, the old lady who has experience teaching Dragon types how to use Draco Meteor?
    -Another try, another failure with recycled footage of Piplup getting hit with the failed Draco Meteor.
    -Gible wanders over to Ash, and...bites him in the head! I have no idea what's going through its head, but I love it.
    -Where the hell did that rock come from?
    -OH GOD IT'S RAINING ASTEROIDS TAKE COVER
    -I get the feeling that this Gible is "special".
    -Team Rocket!
    -....MANENE EXISTS. IT WASN'T JUST A MYTH AFTER ALL! Now if only we could get a glimpse of the mythical Buneary...
    -How, exactly, was Altaria expecting an Ice Beam to break it out of a plastic(?) ball?
    -Brock's fallen so low as to become transportation for old ladies.
    -TR flies over a mountain, but Gible knows the way! (or so Ash and Dawn would hope)
    -Gible knew the way, alright...to a berry bush!
    -Dear god, Dawn's facial expressions! "What do you MEAN I just got done running half a mile and now have to scale a cliff?"
    -Dawn's apprehension at climbing that cliff was pretty justfied, what with her falling to her death a short time later. Luckily, Mamoswine turns out to be slightly softer than the ground.
    -Ash almost falls to his death too(what is this, a PSA about the dangers of scaling cliffs?), but Gible saves him!
    -Mukuhawk finds TR's balloon, which...launches a net at it! I LOVE THIS EPISODE!
    -No, seriously, just WHAT is Altaria hoping to accomplish by using Ice Beam on its enclosure?
    -Oh, it's the old "switch from cold to hot REALLY FAST to break things" trick.
    -Gible is amazing. It ate an entire mecha in 20 seconds.
    -I am loving the hell out of the facial expressions this episode.
    -Gible still sucks at Draco Meteor. Although really, the falling ball of energy could be an attack in its own right.
    -Aw, I was half-expecting Gible to bite Ash before it tried Draco Meteor again. PHYSICAL PAIN IS FUNNY, DAMMIT.
    -And Gible is now able to use Draco Meteor. For some reason.
    -Lookit Piplup taking all the credit for blasting off TR in its mind. That's one proud penguin.
    -Gible decides to show off Draco Meteor again...and fails, with hilarious results. The animators ONCE AGAIN reuse the "Piplip freaking out before being hit by the ball of energy" animation.
    -And the episode ends with Our Heroes heading off to Asasatustusdfsdgski Town for the next contest. But GIBLE IS STILL FOLLOWING THEM! *dun dun dun*


    Great episode. The animation was hilarious, and I was not expecting Gible to be such a zoned-out Pokemon(which only makes it more amusing). I also have to agree with several other posters that it was great that TR was expecting Ash to have Staraptor look for them. The writers probably won't pull that one very often, but at least they thought of it this one time.

    It was a close-up of her hair tail. It was going to chomp down on it much like Totodile.

    ...Who am I trying to kid? The only thing racing through our minds when they did that shot was assassass.


    It was... just a rock. Not everything has to be an attack.
    I was certainly on the a** lol

    This episode was comical with some great animation for the attacks too

    I already love this gible lol i'll always love gliscor too though

    He is one strong lil shark ain't he.....dragon pulse, dig ,possibly bite, learning draco metor and is shown to use dragon claw in the DP157 preview wow

    The running gag of the Draco Meteor "flop" homing in on Piplup wherever it ran reminded me of an old Looney Toons gag. As an overall plot, this episode was actually very generic, but fortunately, all the aforementioned visual gags and the overall charm of this Gible made things more than worth it. Whereas Gliscor was simply a klutz, Gible is truly a dimwit. It suffers from a case of mental lapse far more severe than anything Muku.BIRD could ever conjure up.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    When Gible tunneled under Team Rocket's mecha and then ate it, I was reminded very strongly of very old arcade games for some reason . . . especially Dig Dug and Pac-Man. Not sure if that's what the writers were going for, but that's what I got from it.

    I'm probably not going to watch this episode, until I know if Gliscor will return by the league.

    I'm going to refuse to watch any episode Gible is in, sans the Sunyshore Gym (if its in that), mainly because I do not agree with the writers releasing Pokemon.

    Shame, because it looks like quite a good one.

    ^Maybe you should just give it a rest and watch it anyways? I mean it's just a show overall. This episode is comical and imo one of the best episodes of sinnoh.

    Y'know, given that Team Rocket has a LOT of work to catch up on, I'm really wondering why they didn't try to go for the two'fr and grab Staraptor as well.

    Honestly, I was in a pretty down mood when I watched this episode, and it was SO awesome that it turned my frown upside down. Everything from the Piplup gag, to Gible's blank stare (I feel like it's a Naive Nature for some reason...), it's biting (somewhat like Snubbull, but a lot cooler), and Team Rocket's hilarity. Did anyone else notice while James was getting gagged by Carnivine that the rest of the Team put on Wobbuffett faces? That was HILARIOUS.

    Can't wait for the dub, only because I want to actually be able to understand the dialogue. Hopefully not much else changes though.

    Dude, give it a freaking rest already. I mean, I've always had qualms and disagreements with the writers' decisions, but that doesn't make me boycott the show. At least Gliscor got a reasonable conclusion.

    As for this episode, all I have to say is that Gible better live up to these expectations. I think that this is definitely one of the best episodes of the generation and I'm not exaggerating. Piplup being abused never gets old, especially when it's the only one that gets hurt. Gible really took the "Land Shark" billing literally, the way it glided through the dirt. And I thought Munchlax had an insatiable appetite. Gible just ate a whole freaking mecha.

    I feel bad for Ash, though. First he had Turtwig biting his head, now there's Gible. It's like he's turning into James or something...

    I was a little nervous that the writers would drop the bomb and give Ash an already strong Pokemon. However, it appears that this Gible still has a lot of training yet before it reaches its potential, which is always a good thing in my eyes.

    Here's hoping for more Gible-abusing-Piplup in the future.

    Now being reposted!

    Your going to miss a lot than, shame you have to stop watching the show on the count of one Pokemon leaving. The guy was great, but Gibble looks to be the most funny Pokemon yet. Sad your starting to sound like one of those old Misty fans who'd say they'd stop watching since Misty left, oh well thems the breaks I guess. I loved the episode, the animation was awesome. It really reminded me of Kanto days, Dawns expression when going up the cliff was sooo funny. Than Pipulp getting hit each time with Gibbles attack was too funny, I hope it becomes a running gagXD
    Over all yah, one of the best episodes of this series so far.

    I loved this episode. The animation was amazing. Who was the AD? cause they need to animate like...every episode.

    This gible is much better than the one that Kazunari captured, like mentioned before it seems to be a "special" gible. and thats all the better.

    It's been already said in this thread before.......several times..........but, 'I LAUGHED'. And that's really rare for me with pokemon. Who ever directed this is a genius. I never thought a repeated scenario could be so funny.....every time piplup was getting hit, I was shaking in laughter. Even the small things....the way carnivine's vines got tangled when seviper got thrown into it, and JnJ were trying un-knot them, the way Staraptor got trapped in the net, and the way gible was so stoic.....everything was too too enjoyable...

    Simply loved the episode. 10/10..........
