    They probably figured this episode had heavy references to the Jynx Contest, (i.e., May missing the ferry to Pacidfiglog Town), and since they were skipping the Contest, they had to skip this one too because it was too heavily connected to it.

    Which doesn't make much sense when you think about it, but this is KidsWb we're talking about.

    I really have to say I liked this episode alot. Ash is such a sweetheart to tell May to go on without them. May is so noble in keeping her promise to her mother. So sweet!

    My ideal battle ever!

    Uh, folks, has it occurred to anyone that the donphan episode was delayed because of the foreshadowing that Phanpy's rejoining the show in what is now TWO WEEKS? The gap would have been much wider if they'd run it at the right time.

    And they couldn't have just aired it like the Japanese did, foreshadowing Phanpy before the GF and Hoenn league?

    KidsWB wouldn't delay an episode for the sake of Phanpy. Phanpy is in the opening you know, that's enough for the little kids to know it's returning to his team.

    It was because of Jynx in the Contest, that's the real reason.

    What about what I remember Dogasu mentioning, that it could be because of Sweeps Month, and they just wanted to skip to the all-purpose merchandising Munchlax? You know what they say, blame the Munchlax!

    I have to say, I did enjoy this episode. It had a great mix of comedy and drama, which is always a plus with me. My two cents:

    -- I liked Team Rocket calling out all their pokemon to protect them, then Wobbuffet gets called first to protect and goes flying before he can counter. LOL His unusually hesitant "Wobbuffet" at the end of the scene was interesting for a change.
    -- Yay, another anti-boss fantasy. I liked James's deadpan "No more bowling alley either" at the end of the first fantasy.
    -- Team Rocket getting flattened was LOL hilarious. I liked Ash's reaction when he found them frozen too.
    -- Chimecho was hilarious in this episode. I liked also when Jessie was telling the pokemon to protect them James tells Chimie that it doesn't have to.
    -- Awww, it was so nice to see Snorunt again. Not that Glalie doesn't kick butt in battle, but Snorunt was just so adorable. They should have introduced it sooner on the show.
    -- May was also terrific in this episode. I liked that she was dedicated to making sure her brother was safe. The flashback to "There's No Place Like Hoenn" was nice too. I'm glad they kept continuity by having May only mention traveling with Ash, since Brock hadn't rejoined the group yet.
    -- Oh yeah, and the donphan story was interesting.

    Overall, 8.5/10. At least it was worth the wait.

    Hands down my favorite part of the show ^^ It was pretty good for a filler before the contest. I couldn't imagine it being better than it was when I saw it.

    A good episode, it was nice to see the Donphan mating season and that the males test their strength against each other just like real life elephants. You now Ash and the gang definitely seem to encounter alot of Shiny Pokemon during their journeys, it's alot more than what i've encountered. It was funny to see Chimecho play a prank on Jessie and Meowth with Astonish instead of using Heal bell, and grats to Snorunt for learning Ice Beam it should definitely come in handy when the Hoen League Championships come around.

    Great filler. Pokemon love is always so awesome. But I think Ash's Donphan should have gotten the girl. His Pokemon never do unless it's Butterfree.

    Too much love and mating going on between the Donphan for my tastes to be honest. I didn't like how Donphan was featured in this episode and not another more romantic Pokemon. I did appreciate the Shiny Donphan though since Shiny Pokemon are rare to see in the anime. Episodes that feature Shinies are always welcomed haha. This episode seemed a tad too filler-y so it gets a 3/10.

    After watching this episode, I was thinking "Well, May is going to miss the Grand Festival(?) for sure. She just messed up her chances at becoming a top coordinator."

    Also, to me, the brown Donphan in this episode was clearly a female, not a shiny Donphan.

    This episode was ok... It was cool to see a shiny Donphan for the 1st time. It was cool to see the hard-trying male Donphan finally get accepted by its chosen mate. Meowth's Boss Dream was odd and funny to see. Chimecho's Wobbuffet-like face during the blast off was funny.

    Another boring episode. I was not interested in the Donphan love problem. And, well, I guess that's all that really happened in this episode.

    After watching this episode again, I enjoy it a bit more since it deals with two Pokemon trying to express their love for another.
    Also, now that I'm a little more familiar with a Pokemon's shiny counterpart, I now see that the brown Donphan in this episode was supposed to be it's shiny coloring.
