    What was that attack the Vibrava used against TR? Screech?

    Chouonpa: Supersonic. I don't get why it had a physical effect either.

    Not only that, Vibrava can't even learn that move. Are you sure it was Supersonic?

    There's no doubt whatsoever that that's what Heihachirou identified the attack as. The zukan entry also mentioned it.

    Me thinks Supersonic is an egg move for Trapinch.

    Pack-Emon, XD. Now all we needed are some Shuppet.

    EDIT: Me thought wrong.

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

    Great. Looks like the writers are confusing Vibrava with Yanma... -_-

    Not according to either this site's Pokedex or my printed NP guide. Both say that Trapinch's only egg moves are Focus Energy, Quick Attack, and Gust.

    They've been putting attacks on Pokemon that have never learned them since the beginning almost. This is just the latest victim. But yeah -_-.

    I asked on another forum whether the Trapinch line can get Supersonic, and it seems they cannot.

    I checked it as well. It isn't an Egg Move. I thought it was. Oh well, I'm not all knowing.

    Maybe it will be like Gary's Arcanine. At the time the episode aired, they could not get fire spin, but later it became an egg move or whatever. It seems unlikely that this will be the case, but you never know. Anyway, I thought this was a pretty good episode, it reminded me a lot of the episode with Steven way back on Dewford Island. Seeing the Trapinch line in the show was pretty cool, I've always thought they were interesting pokémon. Am I the only one who thinks Vibrava (and Flygon too for that matter) should have been bug types? I mean, just look at them, they look like bugs. They should have been Bug/Ground, or better yet, Bug/Dragon, now that would have made for a really interesting type combo. It was also kinda fun to see TR's Diglett make an appearance for the first time since the Sowpoke well. It's really weird not having Oak's lectures any more, I was expecting it to come on after the preview of the next episode.XD

    Actually, they could always get Fire Blast - via TM 38 in RBY, for starters.

    Muchos gracias for the info. Though now I'm wondering why a forest-dweller like Ziggy would venture out to a desert, of all places.

    Wait a minute...Vibrava with Supersonic?!?!?! I know they can Screech, and that they cause sonic blasts by vibrating their wings(probably how they cause Earthquakes and Rock Slides; by directing those blasts at the ground)...I guess the writers figured that the Vibrava should be able to pull off Supersonic through wing vibration as well(like Yanma).

    SatoTraping perhaps? >_> *shot*

    Yeah, I found it odd that Vibrava used Supersonic out of nowehere when the darn thing can't even learn the attack. o_O

    Crazy. Truthfully, I had thought it could get the attack from somewhere, but I do believe I was confusing it with Screech. Could they [the writers] have gotten confused too? Bleh, this gets me worried about later on when the episode gets dubbed, for it may be mistaken as Screech. While at its core the attack is wrong, it should still be concluded as wrong through any version it may pass

    He/she was referring to Fire Spin, which it used in that episode before it could get it in the games. The writer fo the post must have remembered wrong or wrote wrong.

    Anyway, it is most odd that Supersonic was used. Contrary to what Big Al said, it is EXTREMELY rare for the anime to have a Pokemon use an attack they can't learn at all in the games (beyond the basic Tackle of course). About the only exceptions I can recall are the Kanto Raticate's Jump Kick, and Brock's Golbat using Sonicboom in one episode.

    I'm not bothered by it though, as these Pokemon rightfully should be able to learn those moves, they fit them well enough after all. ^_^

    The writers probably got the attack confused... I was wondering what attack that was too. I remember Pikachu had used Tackle before so maybe Pokemon can learn different moves on the anime. *Shrugs*

    One thing I do know... Vibrava & Trapinch are too cute! And to think at first I didn't care for Trapinch when I first saw it... I'm evil! XP

    If anyone wants to see Brock's Ludicolo in motion (and you can't understand just how hilarious it is until you do), check out this video clip I made from this episode, which I will temporarily be hosting. You may have to right-click and save first to get it to work. It's 2 MB in size.

    Tidbit: Trapinch's Japanese name is Nokuraa, but if you "English-ize" it, it turns into Knuckler. Cool.

    Memory evidently doesn't serve. I just checked the Japanese episode, it was Jump Kick.

    Well, been as there's no guide on the site, heres one to read, i made it:

    Still on the island of Izabe, Ash and co are in a desert that is covered in holes. The desert is not listed on Max’s Poke’nav, or in the guidebook that Brock has. Ash picks up a rock and throws it down a hole. A Trapinch pops out and eats it, Ash and co are shocked. Ash checks it on his Poke’dex. Ash and co think that it must be the Trapinch that dug the holes. Ash and co look behind them and see the ranger.

    The Ranger tells Ash and co that they shouldn’t be here, the holes are dangerous. Brock starts to flirt with the Ranger. After seeing this, the Ranger introduces herself as Achiko. Brock is still flirting, so Max pulls him away again by the ear. May asks why the holes are there, and Ash gets really close to one, and falls down it! Achiko throws her rope and Ash catches it. Ash climbs up to the top and thanks Achiko.

    Achiko tells Ash that if he fell down the hole, he may end up under the ground, because the holes are very dangerous. Ash and co wants to get out of the dessert, so Achiko gives them a ride. Max sees lots of Poke'mon during the trip, including a Phanphy and a Girafarig.

    Achiko can see a man, and he is screaming because he is being chased by Donphan. Achiko releases a Meganium and tells it to attack the Donphan. Max stares at the Meganium, thinking it’s his lucky day! May looks in her Poke’dex. Meganium uses sweet scent, and Donphan runs off in fright!

    Achiko tells Meganium to return to it’s pokeball, and as it does, Ash and co get out of the car. Achiko greets the man, she knows him as Achiro. Achiro is a professor from the Izabe academy.

    Achiro uses radar to find a Trapinch. Team Rocket are behind them and they want to catch Pikachu as well as a Trapinch. A Trapinch is now with Ash and the gang, and it is wearing something on it’ back. Achiro says it is a radar to detect water. Achiro says that when he was a kid, he fell down a hole, lost consciousness and when he gained consciousness he was next to a beautiful lake full of Trapinch. The Trapinch evolved into Vibrava and then the lake disappeared. It was an illusion.

    Ash looks up at Vibrava in the poke’dex. Achiko doesn’t believe Achiro because he thinks it was a dream. May looks to her side and notices that Trapinch has gone! Trapinch is going down a hole and Achiro smiles, but not for long, as an earthquake starts. It’s Team Rocket, they have a Diglett robot. They steal Pikachu with their metal arm. Thunderbolt doesn’t work, as Pikachu tries it.

    Brock sends out Ludicolo, and it uses water gun. The Diglett robot starts to fall down a hole! In the hole, they all see bunches of Trapinch eating up the robot. Achiro suspects that they might be the one that can lead them to the Lake of Illusion! Team Rocket and Pikachu are sinking in the mud, so Ash, Achiro’s Trapinch and Achiko jump down to save Pikachu. There are two passage ways, left and right, Ash, Achiko and Trapinch go right while Team Rocket and Pikachu go left! Achiro jumps down the hole and starts to search for Trapinch. Max is worried! Ash and Achiko follow Trapinch, as Trapinch looks for Pikachu.

    Team Rocket see a Trapinch, and want to catch it. Meowth thinks that Trapinch will be an excellent Nut Cracker for the boss! Team Rocket think that they will get a promotion. They are so long talking, Trapinch disappears. Achiro passes, and Team Rocket follow him.

    Max gets to close to the hole and falls down. May tries to save him, but she falls down, then Brock tries to save them, but he falls down! They fall down in front of Ash and Achiko.

    Achiko asks Brock where Achiro is, but Brock says that he fell down the hole. Trapinch looks worried, and starts to dig a hole in the wall. Ash and co wonder why, but then they see a huge water flow coming towards them. They are washed away!

    Ash and co are washed up near a lake, along with Achiko. Max thinks that this is the place! Pikachu is there, and they finnaly find him. They also see Trapinch. Then Achiro apprears, followed by Team Rocket. Achiko apologises to Achiro for not believing his story. IT IS REAL! On the other side of the lake is a group of Trapinch, and they evolve into Vibrava. Team Rocket get more excited and want to steal them.

    Team Rocket catch the Vibrava in a net. Brock sends out Ludicolo and Achiko sends out Meganium. They slice the net. James sends out Cacnea and Jessie sends out Dustox, they attack Ash and co, but Vibrava uses reflect and the attack hits Team Rocket. Pikachu uses thunder and Team Rocket go blasting off again. Vibrava takes the gang up to the surface.

    Ash and co say bye to Achiro and Achiko. Brock is heartbroken and Ash, May and Max laugh. That is how the episode ends.

    OK, just so you know-
    The archaelogoists are now named Elisa and Hal and have VERY generic voices
    Ludicolo maintains that voice... SO glad he gets shafted! If anything, this episode sets us up for a big screw you when Ludicolo hardly ever appears
    Trapinch and Vibrava are pronouunced differently fromn how I'd thought. Trapinch has an emphasis of the "pinch" part and the "Vib" in Vibrava rhymes with "bib", not like "vibration", which is what I'd have thought. Their dub voices are nothing special, and deeper than I would have thought.

    Mediocre filler, characters and pokemon... not very impressive.
