Never seen a berry be consumed like that before.
I noticed that, compared to Ash, Burgh is like 11 or 12 feet tall. Maybe Ash is just shorter than usual?
Claimed by me!
This episode made Ash look like a hypocrite. He has "saved the day" countless times by ordering attacks on Pokemon, so why can't Trip do it in self-defense? It's like the writers weren't even thinking here. Ash's interference came off as childish pestering. When you make the antagonist more likable than the main character, you're doing it wrong.
It's even worse when this very same episode ended with Ash and Trip launching attacks at the Venipede with their birds and Ash was still portrayed as the one in the right. Like what?
