    Say heres a thought? If trainers had pokemon that could fly, then why would they need to invent planes? I'm glad that Ash actually has flown in a plane now though. Was it a bush plane, or a turbine jet? I'm guessing its a small one, like a cessna right? Not open-cockpit probablly too. Well *Cheers, I hope Misty comes back in the next few episodes*
    Er-hem!...Congradulations, Ash, you and your pokemon are hall of famers!"

    There are many reasons. Most people don't have a flying Pokemon large enough to fly them, most flying Pokemon would be a good deal slower than an airplane, and a flying Pokemon can carry only a few people at most, a plane can hold many.

    Well, I see the ultimate result, but you seem to be assuming that the multi-billion dollar research, needed to produce, multi-engine passenger jet plane would be produced naturally and quickly. The fact is, in this world, technology would probablly stagnate in Aeronotics (sp), I mean why would men bother to produce the unreliable, primative equivilant of the Wright Brothers aircraft
    when that fearrow already gave pleasure flights, and could be bred at a reasonably low cost. Btw, each space-shuttle columbia costs billions of dollars, and for a while during the space race 10 percent of the US economy was funneled into the nasa programs. Thats a huge ammount of money and resources; if we assume that th epokemon world has anywhere near that kind of economic muscle...well it just seems unlikely to happen, especially when there are no airports in the Hoenn games. See my drift?

    Knowing "super" Skitty they would have gotten off that island in five seconds, and Satoshi would have won the Houen League in one day if it was. XD;

    I don't know, I understand what you're saying but it doesn't seem practical. Sure, maybe Spearow could be produced in large quantities at a relatively low costs, but relatively few of them would evolve on their own and it would likely take a good amount of time. And in such cases you would have a bunch of large, hungry creatures who were never trained.

    To train each one individually would be something most trainers wouldn't want unless the Pokemon was their own. And knowing how many Pokemon think, they wouldn't allow someone on their back unless it was their trainer, friend or their trainer told them to let the person on.

    And people seem to have a basic desire in many cases to fly on their own. I can just see a Poke world Wright brother thinking "there has to be a way for humans to fly without Pokemon."

    Aside from that, people seem very generous in the Pokemon world, far more than is usual in ours, perhaps a lot of money for many things could come from donations and gifts from the various eccentric rich people. ^_^

    Of course, the ultimate answer is "because the writers say so." ^_^

    Well, it sounds like the TV show Lost to me. Anyway, it was a turboprop plane. I'll be flying to Tokyo later on. Rating: 30. What a good episode. It has planes on it, an Flying Pokemon is only my thing. The plane crash is an Absol-ute disaster. Also, were running out of petrol this time.

    Well, you're talking about the episode I know, it's still Rocket roll to me!. Another weird Pokemon World, I guess. Spearows could be produced in large quantities at a relatively low costs, but relatively few of them would evolve on their own and it would likely take a good amount of time. And in such cases you would have a bunch of large, hungry creatures who were never trained.

    What's that? It isn't right? Sorry about that. As for now, bye!

    This episode was decent enough, although I lauged when Robin decided to return to the island. Doesn't he want some new clothes at least? LOL.

    Team Rocket were really low in this episode, ready to strand Ash and co. on the island to make their get away. It shows that they can be downright dirty when they want to be.

    Not much else to say here other than seeing Walimer/Wailord, so eh.

    I can't help but think that they wasted this episode on a pointless filler when they could have made the Hoenn League one episode longer...

    Pretty awesome episode, I loved the island and Wailord. I don't see why he went back to the island after he was rescued after all those years, but I guess it's because he wanted to stay with Wailord.

    8/10

    Boy oh boy, that episode bored me to tears. But one good thing I can say about this episode is that we get to see Wailord again and it has been a while since it last appeared if I'm right.

    There are less than 10 episodes in Hoenn's entirety that absolutely bore me to tears. This is one of them, ranking up there with the likes of the Plusle/Minun episodes, the Shuppet one, and the Linoone one. Trainer of the day was boring, so his idiotic decision to return to the desolate island serves him right, as nobody is going to miss him.

    Though I'm surprised that even though Wailmer was one of the first R/S Pokes introduced, it took nearly 130 episodes into AG to be properly introduced (meaning no cameos), one of the final 5 for that matter (Kinda like Slowking in Johto).
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    After seeing this episode, it finally hit me that Team Rocket is really really annoying. But I liked how the one guy (Robin I think it was, maybe a pun off of Robinson Crusoe?) went back to the island with his Wailord. Overall, cool filler.

    This episode was pretty decent. The TC was interesting. I thought Wailmer sounded a little weird. Wailord was awesome and it was cool to see a Water Spout. There were 3 parts and 1 quote I found to be funny.
    1. James' reaction to hearing that Jessie sold all of his old bottlecaps
    2. Skitty playing with Wailmer and seeming to be the only pokemon in the group not helping to build the boat
    3. Munchlax getting bloated (it never gets old)
    4. James (after Cacnea is KOed by Pikachu): "No one treats Cacnea that way except me!"

    I think it is. I don't think he shows up during the league. So poor Ludi only has one more appearance before he gets thrown into the black hole where filler characters and many Pokemon go when the writers are done with them.

    Robin, I get it. Though they could have named the Wailmer/Wailord Friday to drive it home for the little kiddies.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    True, Munchlax getting bloated is always good. It sucks Ludicolo only gets like 3 appearances!

    This episode has been basically driven from my mind. Since I've been gone until a few minutes ago, the details have all melded into one. However, I must say, this was a great episode, a lot better than I expected. Just goes to show the emotional impact of some episodes can't be caught in pictures

    Pretty good for a filler.

    If I were that Wailord, I'd want to roam the Hoenn ocean for adventure or something now that I've evolved, rather than return to that dinky little island. >_>

    ...yeah. 7/10.

    Gahhhh, I'm a week behind in my episodes. I haven't even finished watching the meowth in boots episode yet.

    Anyway, I did like this episode. It had a nice story, even though Team Rocket and Team Twerp being together wasn't as great here as it has been in previous episodes. Robin was an interesting guest character, and his backstory was interesting. A workaholic who discovers there's more to life, that's something you don't see every day on pokemon. He was the best part of this episode. I also liked Chimecho's brief scene. I can't help it, that thing is adorable.

    Anyway, 7/10 for me. Very nice story.

    This is one of the worst filler eps ever because of Jessie's arrogance. Of course what else can you expect from her?

    Kind of ironic that the schedule of the show appearing everyday on CN (America) ended up showing an episode about a plane crash on 9/11's 5th anniversary.
