So what started out as an episode about Ash & Co being chased by giant Pokémon, turned out to be about an abandoned Pokémon centre which was being run by Zoroark to care for the wild Pokémon on the island. I thought it was a really sweet episode about old friends and I'm glad the Pokémon centre reopened in the end.
Also, a special mention to the return of the Team Rocket submarine, even though it wasn't a magicarp, it was relevant to Generation 5 as it was a basculin.
Good episode, onto the next one!!!
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

Anyways, it's pretty great to see the old team rocket back, and i did get quite a giggle at that outrage pun :P

Meh .......like the original, this episode's dub version was boring too. I didn't find anything interesting except for the part where Ash calls Nurse Joy and Audio multiple times, causing the disguised Zoroark to change go and back and forth.

The dub tracks are so generic, and not memorable at all. TPCI should keep more music from the movies.

It was an alright ep. I was actually lol'd at the Nurse Joy/audino bit.
It was nice to finally see Zoroark appear. I'm glad he got to stay at the Pokemon Center
Decent episode, but it really tackled a nice thought to how Pokemon and Humans can commuicate. I really wish this was around during N's travels with Ash and co. It's astounding that Zoroark can communicate with human speech during their time as an illusion. I hope that can expand across Pokemon in order to communicate with people. Gen 3 hinted at that, N's able to hear a Pokemon's thoughts, and now Zoroark can actually talk when as a human!
Seeing an older Nurse Joy was interesting, too, and I seriously wasn't expecting that. I was imagining another Looker rip off (like the one from the Purrloin Mystery episode), but this one I'll take.
This episode also felt very familiar between "The Island of Giant Pokemon" and the Bridge episode (near Castelia City).
The Snorlax comment and the Nurse Joy/Audino bits were hilarious as well.
As soon as I recognized the first giant Pokemon as Zoroark, I thought "Yeah, I'm gonna like this episode!"
And I did.

Claimed by me!
I'm not sure Zoroark was fully able to speak Japanese/English when it was disguised as Joy. I think it was more along the lines of Zoroark repeating relevant lines that it can remember Joy saying. Still, quite a touching episode, and it's one of those things that show just how intelligent Pokemon can be. Zoroark learned how to make basic medicine from Nurse Joy and kept using that skill to take care of the local wild Pokemon after she left.

Strange episode, but I have to admit the scenes where zoroark projected the stories of life at the pokemon center and fighting off the poachers, and how she had kept the center running for all the wold pokemon really tugged at the heartstrings. :'(

I had been waiting ages for a Zoroark episode and then we got this weak filler for it. What a disgrace to Zoroark's legacy. 5/10
I liked seeing Team Rocket in scuba gear and how Zoroark's giant Meowth illusion scared them. Zoroark's backstory was sad and I liked how Joy returned and how Ash's group helped clean the pokemon center.
I liked that the shopkeeper at the start resembled a Kabigon. I've always liked Zoroark and its use of illusions, but I felt that his ability would've worked much better in a battle than as a plot device. I liked when he changed into a giant Kuitaran, though, and leave it to Kibago to get attacked by a Tamagetake.
I liked the music and the animation during the giant Heatmor scene, but the rest of the episode was so meh especially the ending. I wish Ash and friends had done more, but unfortunately Nurse Joy was the main character. :x
I liked the whole Zoroark mystery. You'd think someone who prides himself on his detective skills like Cilan would have figured things out, but oh well.
