    All I can really say about this episode is, I (and most likely 8/9 of the pokemon fandom) called it. So to quote myself from a little over a month ago:

And as for the TR splitting up, it's just become the boy who cried wolf so I don't really think anything of these kinds of episodes anymore, especially since its a combo platter of 2 episode types I find boring, pokemon love and TR splitting up tease.
    They had even tried to make it seem serious from the preview of last week, but they didn't fool me and in the end Status Quo is God. Hopefully the writers don't try another TR splitting up episode for a long while or at least the next time the writers pull a surprise by actually meaning it.

    Yeah, this episode lost all meaning at least for my speculative desires, and there you were, almost tricking me into going to friggin' Tvtropes!

    The best parts that I liked about this episode:

    Torterra strutting its stuff in a seemingly random battle against a cotd, oh wait.. that was Jessie.. weird.. whatever happened to randomly Thunderbolting them away? Doesn't matter, I liked that Ash still uses are lovey dovey Turtley!

    Also random Buizel appearance against Carnivine! What's up with that! You know we wanted Infernape!

    Wait.. are they obstructing Wingshipping! I don't see our three fliers' in the same shot! Until! Yeah... that's hardcore, Staraptor in the middle, sweet! Sugoooi! BU BU BU BIRD BIRD BIRD bu bu birdBIRD is a word! ! !!

    And uhm, yeah Meowth being überfied for a few seconds was great.

    I thought this episode was both wack & pointless. It just shows that Meowth only battles well if his hormones are greatly high.

    While there were some funny scenes (If I could animate that buff Meowth screencap to sparkle like Alex Louis ArmstrongI'd have a new avvy) it wasn't rly a standout episode. Meowth's crushes had been handled better in the past, sure he never wins but at least they had some impact. Meowzie had a origin story, Snubbull had a running gag, Skitty was captured by May. Even the fillers are remembered for kink value: Cassandra gave pills and massages for well-being, James had Shuckle juice and Giovanni's body was soaked in sweet honey.

    Meowth gets love super powers and all for what, a lover that gets all fat on him. Sounds like an American drama show.

    The episode was pretty good. I find it interesting a least one Glameow has appeaed in a row for 3 episodes (DP176- Johanna's, DP177- Zoey's Glameow, DP178- Girls' Glameow)

    When Glameow evolved, I also found it funny Jessie was lifting up Purugly's tail and notices the body fat after it. And just steps back again. xD

    Knew Meowth wasnt going to leave Team Rocket either, and Purugly using Hyper Beam in just a flash, oh wow. That's crazy.

    The episode was boring at first until it started getting interesting near the end (the part where Glameow evolves). Also, it looks like Meowth wasn't bluffing that the power of love conquers all after demonstrating it. Guess that means we don't need the power of friendship anymore do we?

    It was a good episode. Meowth falls in love with a Glameow, but it evolves into a Purugly at the end. I find it funny when Jessie calls Meowth a drama queen.

    The episode was OK. I liked the reference to Crasher Wake, along with his Gyarados, Quagsire & Floatzel. I had always wanted to see why Crasher Wake was in this episode when I look at the information Bulbapedia has on their DP178 Page. It was cool to see Meowth fall in love and then break up with Glameow when she evolved into Purugly because Purugly has pure ugliness.

    This episode was quite funny. I like Meowth's super love-powered Fury Swipes and Purugly jumping on him. Torterra's jump at the beginning was... odd, to say the least.

    Did Glameow keep her Japanese voice actor? At the beginning it sounded like it said "Nyar", so I figured.

    Thumbs down Unworthy!!

    & now the melodrama starts again... with TR, of all things.

    They've come across a trainer with a Glameow, which they both happen to be fresh meat, & Meowth falls head over heels over Glameow. Of course, that sets the pace for his "resignation" from the team. It continues on until She upgrades into a Purugly, & once that happens, Meowth, as well as the rest of TR, get an SBC in the face.

    That's basically the jist of this, & if you can't tell how cliched this is, I don't know about you...

    I actually liked this episode mainly because of the humor. My favorite part had to be when Jessie took Purugly's tail from around it's body to see how it was. Team Rocket isn't usually funny for me but they made me laugh in this episode.

    The biggest thing I noticed was how the trainer used the pokeball to recall glameow. Sucks Ash is never smart enough to do that.

    "I'm sorry you're being taken away by Team Rocket Pikachu! I can't recall you into your pokeball and save you because you think the pokeball is worse than team rocket!"

    Well I never did see the Japanese version of this episode since I was on a hiatus from the Pokemon anime at the time of it's Japanese premiere, but I've decided to give the English dubbed version a chance since the episode looked good judging from the pictures I did look at a while back (and even TPCI can't mess this up too badly). It seemed like the generic Filler episode but maybe that isn't technically a bad thing. Well, here it is, yet another review/essay from me. I'll try to keep the complaints to a minimum. Anyway, apparently, the episode starts off with Ash and friends being attacked by Team Rocket, while on their way from the Grand Festival to Sunyshore City. Team Rocket had their Seviper out and Ash had his Torterra out during their fight at the time. Jessie ordered her Seviper to use it's Poison Tail against Torterra, despite the fact that the move does only neutral damage to Torterra due to Torterra's type combination (Grass/Ground). I have to wonder what Jessie was smoking at the time of her attack haha. Anime logic is weird though.

    Ash's Torterra managed to dodge the Poison Tail despite it's large size, and Ash then ordered it to use Rock Climb which, as usual, caused all of the earth in the area to pile up and form a sort of hill of rocks on which Torterra ran on to charge at Seviper. Eh. Torterra tackled Seviper, sending it to Team Rocket, which caused them to "blast off again", though the animation sure sucked; I guess the animation staff is on a tight budget? Anyway, Team Rocket landed in a forest, and they noticed that Meowth was missing! In another area of the forest, a little girl and her Glameow encountered Meowth behind a rock; he looked pretty beat up too. I have to stop and say that Glameow's voice just sounded so Japanese; it didn't fit and it never has. That complain aside, the little girl helped heal Meowth by putting a cloth on it's forehead; freaking genius, we have a future doctor on our hands! Meowth eventually woke up and the first thing he saw was Glameow's "lovely" face. Meowth seemed pretty happy to see it, which was cute to see.

    The little girl then tells Meowth that they saved him from the mountains and Meowth seemed thankful, though I do wonder why the girl didn't seem more surprised to see a talking Meowth; she only mildly reacted to it haha. The little girl, Meowth, and Glameow then had lunch and Meowth began to really like Glameow to the point where he blushed a lot. Then, Team Rocket came to ruin things by finding him. Team Rocket actually thanked the little girl, and they dragged Meowth with them, but that was sort of cruel. I felt sorry for Meowth since he seemed to want to stay with Glameow. Meowth then decided that he wanted Team Rocket to "capture" that Glameow and proceeded to come up with a BS explanation that made little sense (via Boss Fantasy). Team Rocket then decided to go with Meowth's plan anyway. We then met up with Ash and friends again as they ran across the girl with the Glameow, themselves. She decided to walk with the gang and she revealed that she was on a journey to collect Gym Badges, but hadn't gotten anyway so far; but isn't it a bit late to be collecting badges? Seems a bit odd since Ash is about to challenge the final Gym for his last badge.

    Moving on, while crossing a bridge, it sort of collapsed and Ash and friends fell into a cage that was underneath, placed by none other than Team Rocket. They arrived and took Glameow from the little girl, but thankfully, she used her Poke Ball to return it to safety which angered Meowth haha. James then helped out with his Carnivine, but Ash sent out his Buizel and had it use Aqua Jet against Carnivine's Bullet Seed. That ended in a draw and Team Rocket took the opportunity to snatch Glameow's Poke Ball from the foolish little girl. Team Rocket then took off but Jessie released the cage and Ash and friends fell into the river below, defeated. How often does Team Rocket succeed? Not too often so good for them! Team Rocket decided to send the Glameow to Giovanni, but Meowth talked them into keeping it a little longer. Meanwhile, Ash and the others were still trying to track down Team Rocket via Staraptor and Togekiss but it didn't work. Lol, fail. They decided to rest, even though Glameow's life could have been in serious danger. At night, Meowth stole Glameow's Poke Ball and released it so that they could talk apparently. Meowth talked about how it was really trying to save Glameow, and Glameow actually bothered to listen?

    Meowth told Glameow all sorts of stuff like how together, they wouldn't ever have to battle again, despite Glameow apparently liking to battle. Apparently, Glameow decided to join Meowth and together, they boarded a small boat. I laughed when Meowth called Glameow it's "mate" though; isn't that a bit mature? The next morning, Ash and friends resumed the search for Team Rocket with Staraptor and Togekiss. The Glameow's owner seemed worried about her Pokemon, but thankfully, Dawn and Brock were there to explain to her that there was nothing to worry about. I don't know if I'd believe them, since they had already lost to Team Rocket once before. Back at Team Rocket's side of the forest, they woke up to find Glameow's Poke Ball missing and then they noticed that Meowth was also missing. Jessie got suspicious but James noticed a note posted on her back that was a letter from Meowth. Apparently, Meowth can write too? Even though it doesn't have thumbs. Hmm. Anyway, the note was a letter of resignation since Meowth wanted to start a "new life" with Glameow. Sort of surreal but Team Rocket wasn't going to have any of that! They were clearly upset about being used by Meowth and decided to do something about it.

    Team Rocket decided to do an aerial search for Meowth on their balloon and they even used binoculars which they've rarely used before from what I recall. Just as they were searching, they spotted Staraptor and Togekiss who had both closed in on them and then it was revealed that Ash and friends were on the ground underneath the balloon. Ash had Starpator use Brave Bird and Dawn had Togekiss use Aura Sphere and they both destroyed the balloon. I wonder why it was so easy to do that this time around, and so difficult at other times. Jessie and James fell to the ground below, but were unscathed for the most part. Ash and friends appeared to ask for the Poke Ball back, but something funny occured; Ash asked for the Poke Ball, and then a few seconds later, the little girl did too. I mean really? Why ask twice? Anyway, Team Rocket explained about how Meowth had ran away with Glameow's Poke Ball and Brock figures that it was Meowth's trick. Team Rocket then went to search for them, and Ash and friends followed as well, since Team Rocket made it perfectly clear that they were still trying to steal Glameow from the little girl to give to Giovanni.

    Back on the boat of love, Meowth peeled an apple for Glameow, which she enjoyed. I thought it was a pretty cute moment, despite the fact that Meowth was stealing her away from her trainer. I noticed something there though; we got about 10 seconds of silence in the background, which is super rare in the dub. Just as Meowth was admiring Glameow, Jessie's Yanmega, Ash's Staraptor, and Dawn's Togekiss appeared in the air near the boat. Meowth tried to get the boat away from there, but Ash and friend, plus Team Rocket, appeared near the riverbank to stop Meowth! Dawn had Piplup use Whirlpool, which knocked both Meowth and Glameow out of the boat. Team Rocket and Ash and friends had Meowth and Glameow cornered at that point, but Meowth vowed to protect Glameow from them, despite only Team Rocket meaning it any harm. Jessie sent out her Seviper and Ash sent out his Infernape and the two made their way towards Meowth for a battle. Meowth used it's "Fury Swipes of Love" against Seviper and it actually injured it! Haha. Meowth then used the same attack on Infernape, and it worked again. As Seviper and Infernape teamed up against Meowth, he used his "Double Fury Swipes of Love" to crush them. If only Meowth could be this good in every other battle; it would be awesome!

    Jessie, Ash, and Dawn then had Yanmega, Staraptor, and Togekiss attack Meowth but it used it's third attack, "Multi Point Fury Swipes of Love" to defeat those three easily. Wow, even Jessie and James were mighty impressed with that attack and who can blame them? It was amazing to see Meowth actually fight for the first time in forever! Meowth then started ranting about how the source of his power was his love for Glameow, and I loved that scene where we got to see "buff Meowth" haha. Meowth even went as far as to compare it's power to that of Dialga and Palkia, which Jessie thought was going a little too far. Meowth proceeded to attack with a barrage of it's Fury Swipes, which once again, proved very effective against Seviper and Infernape. James then used his Carnivine's Bullet Seed, which actually managed to damage Meowth this time. However, Bullet Seed also hit Glameow, and it would appear that the attack triggered a reaction in Glameow that made it instantly evolve into a Purugly! I thought that was pretty sudden, considering that it didn't seem that well trained to me at the start. Dawn scanned Purugly in her PokeDex and then Jessie proceeded to remove Purugly's tail from around it's mid-section which was hilarious and random lol.

    Just as Meowth got up from the ground, he noticed that Purugly was where Glameow once stood and it sort of insulted Purugly it seems. Purugly then crushed Meowth with it's weight, which was unexpected since I thought it liked Meowth. Apparently, Purugly wanted Meowth to keep it's word, and then Meowth finally realized that Purugly was Glameow and that it evolved as he was unconscious on the ground, due to Carnivine‘s Bullet Seed. He didn't seem pleased with that for some reason haha. Seviper and Infernape attacked Meowth, and Purugly seemed to tire and decided to just go back to it's trainer which was really cold but yeah. Meowth decided to "break-up" with Purugly, but it's trainer had it use Hyper Beam on Meowth and Team Rocket, causing them to blast off once more, as usual. Kind of sad. Well Ash and the little girl said goodbye to each other as they went their separate ways, and the episode ended like that. Hmm, it certainly left much to be desired. I was expecting a lot more considering how fun things were getting during that battle near the end, but it was an average episode in the end. Too bad. I'd give it a 8/10 since it wasn't all that great, but left me laughing during some parts. I hope the next one is better.

    Wow. Talk about an episode comeback. I wasn't really liking it, until the last 5 minutes or so. Then it was hilarious.

    Jessie lifting Purugly's tail, and the fat coming out, and Purugly kicking sand at Meowth literally had me laughing. Also, Ash not getting it was funny. It's actually a pretty good reaccuring gag.

    Pokemon is promoting shallowness! 8/10.

    Before I give my critique of this episode, I got a couple comments. Initially, I felt like this episode was a pointless filler when I first saw the Japanese title "Goodbye Team Rocket" since they NEVER dispatch. It also got me thinking that I miss one of the most awesome characters in the anime; the Magikarp Salesman. I hope they bring him back one day.

    This episode was good. Meowth's idea for Glameow's use with Giovanni was hilarious as usual.Meowth calling a pokemon out of a pokeball was a first. I was quite surprised that Meowth fought against TR andAsh's pokemon.

    LOVED Meouth being all im gonna fight for my girl and being all strong then Glamerow evolved and was all bad *** LOL. Also loved Meouth actually being nice for once and loved his message to Team Rocket. I also liked the character of the day as well although I felt it a bit strange as they were out of the way to face crasher wake why they would pick him first even though she lost. Oh and Ash being clueless= priceless

    It was an ok episode. It was kinda funny when Meowth was wondering what happened to Glameow when it evolved into Purugly.

    Have there been other times we've actually seen Jessie re-call Wobbuffet to it's Pokeball before?
    If there has, then this has to be the first time I've ever seen it happen before.

    Ash being totally clueless when it comes to love is awesome as usual!

    Loved it when Purugly kicked sand at Meowth like that!

    At the end, when the girls (what was her name again? Mimi?) said that she'll use Puruglys Hyper beam in the Pastoria Gym, I was thinking "just remember, You only get 5 chances, if your lucky". (You know, Hyper beams PP?)
    And, yes I know, anime =/= games. It was just a thought I had at the time.

    This episode was ok and very weird... It was weird how Meowth fell in love with a Glameow, and had to do everything Glameow says. I'm surprised Meowth was willing to do everything for her. Meowth's reaction when Glameow evolved into Purugly was very funny. It was cool that Purugly blasted TR off with its new Hyper Beam attack. It was odd how Meowth was being treated like a kidnapper when actually Meowth and Glameow were going off as lovers.

    The end of this episode is what saved it from being a total drag. It was mainly boring for most of it but the Purugly part was pretty funny. Meowth episodes are actually not that enjoyable for me since I don't like his character very much. Anyway, Mamie was a pretty cool character on her own and I liked her character design.

    I liked this episode. I like the episodes where Meowth falls in love (including the Chronicles episode and The Problem with Paris), they're a treat. I liked the final conclusion with glameow evolving and Meowth getting cold feet. LOL Jessie fiddling with purugly's tail was funny too. My only real complaint is that the episode is a little too similar to I Feel Skitty minus the evolution. At least the purrloin episode of the following season was *really* different.

    I also find it interesting that Team Rocket tried the same twerp trap they set up in season three's The Whistle Stop, the trapdoor + cage under the bridge, and actually succeeded this time.

    Oops, I forgot, I also loved Meowth's fury swipes of love.
