Favorite episode title puns!
Clearly most of you have noticed that the English dub of the episodes absolutely LOVES to make puns out of old sayings, song titles, famous quotes, or anything else! Well not so much in the best wishes saga, but until then it was VERY heavily done. So, which ones do you all remember? Try not to just use the easiest ones, instead perhaps were there any you had to really think about, or only learned the meaning of long after you saw the episode? I personally have frequently come across a saying or song or book title in my life that sounds like an aime episode, and laughed about realizing that's where the "weird" name came from!
Here are the examples I can think of off the top of my head of episode title puns. I don't really feel like finding the exact episode number for each one, hope it's fine.
"So Near, yet so Farfetch'd!" (Original series)
"Memories are made of Bliss" (Sinnoh Leauge Victors)
"Ignorance is Blissey" (Johto Journeys)
"Turning over a new Bayleef" (Johto Leauge Champions)
"Piplup, up and Away!" (Galactic Battles)
"Time-warp Heals all Wounds!" (Battle Frontier)
"Tricks of the Trade" (Johto Journeys)
"Exploud and Clear" (Advanced Challenge)
"Stopped in the Name of Love!" (Galactic Battles)
"Dawn of a New Era" (Diamand and Pearl)
"A chip off the old Brock" (Battle Frontier)

I have 2 Friend codes I use about equally. One is 4055-3723-1345 and the other is 0576 3520 6954. I'll try to mention which one to look for when needed, if I don't then ask.
I try to train pokemon with the best natures and IVs, but generally don't breed for IVs and occasionally use a pokemon that could have a better nature out of laziness (on the other hand I have reset or recaught the same species 20+ times to get the best nature and decent IVs sometimes). I somewhat do EV training, but don't calculate it out so it's perfect, just rely on the chart in the super training thing.
