Why do we need pointless filler episodes like this in what's supposed to be Team Plasma & N's introductory into the anime series, this arc is already a limited number of episodes so shouldn't we be filling those episodes with stuff regrading TP & N instead boring stuff like this.
My Grandmother always said...
"She who walks the path of heaven will rule over everything"
Mana (4914-3452-1470) (X)
Gyarados, Octillary, and Azumarill
There's a tyrant king with a reptile heart
And he's started a wave of crime now
From his ship high above he abducted my love
For the fourteenth or fifteenth time now
Though to be honest I don't mind fillers in between serious episodes, I just hate COTDs with boring problems who wait for Team Rocket to kidnap their Pokémon so they can revolve their problem in a half assed battle.
I watched this episode today with my brother and sister to see one scene in the episode: the Ampharos awkwardly behind a Mareep scene. Unsurprisingly, it was funny. Luckily for us though, it wasn't the only good scene in the show since we had the great honor of the kids telling Ampharos that it should punch the Mareep for not listening to it. Gold.

This was an OK episode, nothing spacial. But there're some scenes in this episode that I liked...
-Ampharos awkwardly appearing behind a Mareep.
- Dragonite inside the Pokéball.
- The kids telling Ampharos to Thunderpunch the Mareep for not listening to it.
- Dragonite not wanting to teach Thunderpunch to Ampharos.
-Iris scolding her studborn Dragonite.
- Ampharos having no confidence, despite it being an Electric-type.(I found that funny)
-Pikachu scaring the heck out of Axew and Ampharos with Thunderbolt!
It would be better if they included a filler episode like this in the Decolore arc instead of including it in the N/Team Plasma arc.

I liked the goofy reactions in this episode, they made me LOL. I liked when Pikachu got too excited and both axew and ampharos freaked out. That one mareep being a jerk was funny a couple of times too. Nice that Dragonite got to be a mentor instead of being a jerk. I also liked that Team Rocket actually played it smart for once and stole by stealth, getting one pokemon quietly at a time. That was a nice switch. Funny that if they had stopped at one or two, they might have gotten away with it.

Well, thank you, animators. You made this episode memorable to the jokers who have used your Ampharos Humping to death.
(Well, for this, and the last episode...)
Haven't heard "we're blasting off again!" for quite some time .
I guess we know what the inside of a Pokeball looks like now.
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
It was nice seeing Floccesy Ranch and those Mareeps were so cute hee hee. Ampharos seemed scary when it first showed up glowing in the dark, plus I liked how Dragonite was helping him master Thunder Punch.
Sangi Ranch looked enchanting, and it was strange yet also slightly funny when Mareep zapped Denryu, given that Denryu enjoyed it. Pikachu and Kibago frolicking in the Mareep's wool seemed unwise, although they seemed not to care, and I liked how Iris's Kairyu showed empathy and coached Denryu.
Omg, I liked Dragonite being a mentor this episode. It really showed that there is a soft heart within his hard exterior. It was sensible to use Ampharos and I liked it being used as its one of my favorite Johto Pokemon.
For me, it was a pretty mediocre episode, that was alright, but not enthralling. One of its nice touches was the assimilations Mareep had to sheep. As in, Meowth falling asleep whilst counting Mareep is a method used for kids to go to sleep, just with sheep instead.
