    Surprise! Surprise! Ash has no recollection of the many battles with Team Rocket James Koffing whatsoever! That's the problem with this saga... No references to Ash's previous adventures NONE!

    Nope, but you get a Magnetite. And to the person above you, past references has stayed pretty vague anyway plus Ash's goal is to complete the Pokedex, regardless of what he's seen before. Not a big deal.

    When was completing the pokédex Ash's goal? Anyway, I think the writers purposely had Ash scan Koffing so that they could introduce it to younger viewers who never played R/B/Y/FR/LG

    Well it is one of things we do in the games, but good point anyway.

    anyone know if the person that voiced james koffing back in the original season is the same one that voiced roxies?
    I believe that Bill Rodgers (Brock) is the voice of Roxie’s Koffing, Michael Haigney provided the voice of Koffing under 4Kids though in "A Poached Ego" I think that Eric Stuart provided the voice for the Koffing captured by Rico plus the “fresh” recordings of Weezing, because it showed more emotions in that ep than any others previous.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed this episode, yes it was let down by the dub's choice of music but a solid episode none the less and plus points to Bill for making Koffing sound very close to its original voice and Koffing in Who's that Pokemon, just like the Japanese version.

    I meant to say she was WAY easier in the games and her anime counterpart is the epitome of overpowered. :/

    That's Challenge Mode man...

    Anyway, I didn't care for this episode when it first aired in Japan and I don't care for it now. I understand the writers wanted to make it interesting, but this could have been a simple 3 on 3 and Ash would still win, given Boldore and Unfezant caused little damage to Koffing, meaning Leavanny could of won on his own.

    Makes sense but Ash should have already completed that portion of his Pokemon full of old pokemon. It just makes Ash seem dumber than he is by older kids(adult) who have been watching the show for years.

    He gets a new pokedex each region...
    It also teaches little kids (who are the target audience) about pokemon they migth have not seen or haven't seen in a while.

    Uh... Koffing is in the current Unova dex... so introductions weren't exactly needed. Not to mention HG/SS was released not too long ago either, where Koffing was available

    Dude..he spent the whole first season being run down by team rocket and their koffing. You'd think he'd have had ample time to get to know the pokemon

    Ash using pokedex on older pokemon he knows is obviously for the younger fans who never saw one. Some kids don't play the games so they would not know what it was or maybe they are new to the series. My friend who is 16 never heard of pokemon till BW came out

    That was a few months ago, you can't possibly expect a 10 year old to have that good a memory now can you?

    where has your friend been? Under a rock? I keed I keed...


    Pretty good episode... and this has not the first time ash has scanned a pokemon he has scanned before :P so no big deal.

    I miss Koffing's old voice... oh well :P

    I was happy to See Roxie's band mates looked just like they do in games.. usually the anime doesn;t always live up to details like that.


    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.

    What's the "who's that pokemon" gag that keeps popping up for it's not for teaching kids about Pokemon? Ash doesn't have to do it. All he needs is to take his old Pokedex and upgrade or he can just remember it like someone said a few pages ago.

    The real problem is that Ash is the only one with a pokedex, whereas in previous seasons Dawn or May would dex a Pokemon that Ash has already seen

    It was a neat episode. Roxie looks really tough, and she knocked out three of Ash's Pokemon. And it's been a while since there was a Koffing in the anime.

    Nop. That's not a formal description about the Pokemon and it would feel weird...

    I'm a bit ashamed to admit that until I saw this episode, I thought Roxy was a guy. o_O At least it was an interesting gym battle, and we get to see a pokemon from before the Unova region (koffing) that isn't Meowth or Pikachu for the first time since season 13. It's also interesting to see a gym battle set up like the games, where you can use all six pokemon against the gym leader's lesser number.
