Lol. Pretty funny episode in my opinion. As most of the things I liked have already been said, I'll just pick a few things~
Ash slithering down that mountain or whatsoever looked quite comical. The first few minutes of the episode he was acting funny anyway.
Munchlax' "blast-off" was hilarious. Would have been even better if it had been TR-style. But it was great nonetheless.
That strange flower on the field creeped me out. I mean, it was HUGE. Well, whatever.
I liked the Beedril scene though. Especially when Pikachu and Corphish saw the other Pokémon, waved happily and Squirtle and Phanpy just ran past them. For some reason I love this kind of stuff.
And...wow, falling into that river must've killed Phanpy. It was acting quite normal after that though.
And perhaps it's just me, but Squirtle and Phanpy looked incredibly cute in this episode. I mean, cuter than usual O.o
I think at one point they messed up with Corphish's voice. When it first said "Hei, Heiga!" to Munchlax, it sounded like Munchlax rather than Corphish itself. Well, sorry if it was already mentioned. I'm too lazy to check right now -_-
Why do they always have Beedrill as a bad Pokemon? When will the Beedrill pursuits stop?
It isn't. It's just a shiny peice of Special Effects from Corphish's Bubblebeam. The after effects of them hitting Squirtle, if you will.Originally Posted by Kawaiiest.Combusken
Combination of visual effects at the end of Corphish's misaimed Bubblebeam attack. The white is part of the flash from Bubblebeam hitting, and the greyish bit is the dust/smoke from the impact clearing.Originally Posted by Kawaiiest.Combusken

I actually quite liked this episode. It was fun, funny, and overall had a nice feel to it, besides the fact that it was blatantly a generic filler.
- Corphish getting angry at Gonbe
- The Corphish/Squirtle Showdown
- Gonbe getting a Rollout to the head
- Squirtle in the Meadow [sniffing flowers! *melts*...errmm...I mean...death to May's Squirtle! <.< >.>]
- Phanpy carrying Squirtle in its back
- Squirtle's reaction to the Beedrill [though it was expected]
- Pikachu and Corphish KOing everyone while trying to get out the cage by using their attacks.
- THE CHIMECHO BALLOON!!! =DDDDDD
So, Phanpy knows Hidden Power, and Squirtle knows Water Gun and Bubble eh? Please writers, give Squirtle a non generic attack! PLEASE! *remembers how long it took for them to give Bulbasaur Petal Dance* ;o;
The Rocket Sequence in this Episode...I feel as if it's been used before...
This episode is going to go mad with Avatars. I mean, there're SO many Avatar worthy things in this episode...
Because they're like real bees. Disturb them, and they come after whatever's in the way to protect their swarm. >_> And what's with the Spear complaints? We haven't seen a Spear swarm attack in YEARS. o_oOriginally Posted by Team Rocket Admin
And as soon as I get the episode, expect a TON of avatars from the last three episodes. >_>
But we've seen it! Why don't they try something else. Granted, I'm not sure what could replace the Beedrills' job, but there has to be something. "Ack! Beedrill! Run4urlivelol" is gettin' old. Why not a different approach? Smack a tree and dozens of Pineco fall down. Or Nincada. Or just Kakuna! Something?
Perhaps, but really, an agry swarm of Spear does seem to be a little more terrifying than some other kind of group that could be replaced with. :\ It's like I said, they're really like bees. What other kind of animal goes off attacking anything in groups/swarms to defend themselves when disturbed that's in the Pokémon kingdom?
Well, Hoenn was practically devoid of them, but there was one just recently in the Mt. Moon episode.Originally Posted by Edward Elric
Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
I do believe Ninjask *could* do the job. It can look intimidating, has talon like things on its forelegs, has the shape of a bee, etc. But I cannot see the Group/Pokemon out running them.Originally Posted by V Faction
Though its old, Beedrill are the only Pokemon that can get the job done. And if there's another Pokemon, what makes you think the writer will change it? They're still making fillers on Geodude and Onix!
Edit: Yanno, the more I watch this episode, the more I'm liking it. Yay for me and my changing opinions. :P
I originally thought this one would suck, but that's the advantage of being pessimistic - when you're wrong it's a good thing. XD Instead of ranting about stuff, I'll just list my likes and dislikes.
-Thanks to the dippy, happy music used for much of the first half resulted in it being more like a Pikachu short than an episode.
-The entire thing was basically a conglomeration of recycled plot devices from other episodes.
-All of the featured pokémon have had plenty of lime-light.
-Takeshi seems to have caught Satoshi's amnesia as he makes no mention whatsoever about owning an Iwaaku or an Ishitsubute.
-To add insult to injury, Takeshi hardly even does anything as I assumed he would.
-Yet another god damned Spear chase scene, only three episodes after the last one. --;
-Holy hell, Mizugorou actually does something!
-Gomazou gets a pretty good role itself.
-Heigani is always funny, and his fight with Zenigame was amusing, but the award for funniest pokémon in this ep goes to Gonbe, not for actually being funny, but for getting it's a*s handed to it by that Ishitsubute. Take that. :P
-The Juputoru vs Iwaaku battle was actually very nicely done, and it was quite exciting to watch. Though it really makes you wonder why the Datsura battle was so lousy.
-Kojirou. ^_^ He was totally awesome in this episode. He captured Pikachu-tachi all by himself, and was damn cool while doing so. The music used during the scene just makes it that much better, and really makes him look evil and nasty. Just for the record, I am straight, but I thought he was downright sexy in that scene. Seriously.

No clue. There very well may not be one (except Ninjask, like KC said, which was my first guess, but he does have a point about the speed). But that's why I said they don't have to go that route. Exploding Pineco could be just as bad if there's enough.Originally Posted by Edward Elric
Or, something else to think about. Why don't they combat them. Sure, the gang intruded on the Beedrill's turf, but with the way they run, it's like their lives are on the line. And as long as they're defending against wild Pokemon, I don't see any unethical reasons. The sheer amount then? Probably.
Comedic effect. And keep in mind that Pikachu and Heigani did drive them off. Compared to those two, Gomazou is relatively inexperienced, plus it had the even less experienced Zenigame to protect. Speaking of which, I liked the scene before the chase where Gomazou got in front of Zenigame and drove off that one Spear.Originally Posted by V Faction
The ep was entertaining, overall.
-Nice to see Haruka get Zenigame to attack for the first time.
-I like episodes where Nyasu does translating, that isn't seen as much as it should be.
-I'm disappointed that the only Rock attack we saw was Rollout, despite being in a rocky area. What exactly do the writers have against showing Rock Throw/Slide anyway? They're way too rare.
But I don't like complaining too much. Overall, solid ep.

Hmmm...but it wouldn't be long before THAT got old too. Lest we forget, Brock's Pinco randomly exploded, that was his 'Gag Feature' before he evolved and lost all personality. I don't know how much more they could milk out of it before we start complaining again. I'm sorry V, but it's a lose/lose situation ;o;Originally Posted by V Faction

Comedy? I ain't laughin'Originally Posted by Geodude
And I haven't seen the ep, so I didn't know that they actually fought the Beedrill for once.
Compared to the eons of Beedrill we've endured, KC? Maybe it would get old. Perhaps that's a clue to them that those gags should just cease entirely. But can we count on them!? I think not!Originally Posted by Kawaiiest.Combusken
You guys complain about Beedrill yet you don't get tired of Meowth's Giovanni fantasies? I like the latter, but not when they put them in every episode.
Hey, I still do find them funny.
Of course, I don't enjoy them ALL the time. It wasn't on my mind to complain. But those didn't receive much attention till Hoenn. That's when they started to get really loopy, I think. So that kinda has some leeway. There's really an endless list of things to be frustrated by in the anime.
It isn't everyone. If I didn't know any better, I'd say the Beedrill attacks were well defend in this thread.You guys complain...
It scares me. >.>; And yet I know it's true. It's inevitable that they'll completely ruin that scene. Music replaced, lines shouted, James gay'd.Originally Posted by Kawaiiest.Combusken

James getting gay'd....no way. lol. I thought he already was?Originally Posted by Heracross
Yeah, really what I meant was that he's made to be gay in the dub in general. :/
I wouldve thought the Japanese would do something like that, I mean, I watch alot of Japanese shows and.....they seem pretty darn gay.Originally Posted by Heracross
Okay, I finally saw the episode. I'd like to smash this episode into the faces of everyone who assumed the episode would suck. At first glance the episode seems boring. But when you actually watch it, it's REALLY good for a filler based on OLD Pokémon. Not only that, but it's funny as hell. Nothing like Gomazou and Zenigame flipping out after seeing a BUNCH of Spear coming after them. Especially when Zeni has no idea why Gomazou grabbed it at first. XD
I don't care what anyone says. Mizugorou may not have had much of a part in the episode, but it at least did SOMETHING for more than one minute. Now let's hope Foretress gets some kind of action soon.
Gonbe getting hurt through out the entire episode was great. First it gets knocked into the sky through Rollout, then smashes into the ground after falling out of a tree, then hit by Heigani's Bubblebeam and Pikachu's Thunderbolt mixed together and falling down a waterfall. About damn time.
Iwaaku was great in the episode, as well. Just something about this one seemed to stand out more than any other. I especially thought the scene where it smashes its tail against the Rocket Gang's balloon was pretty cool.
And is it just me, or does anyone else wish they'd revert back to their old motto? The new one just doesn't sound right. :\
I see what you're saying now. I see no indication whatsoever that Kojirou is homosexual in the original version. The only thing even close to it is when he crossdresses, which is only for comedic relief.Originally Posted by kukkyou_ooraka
Heh, what can I say? I'm not afraid to admit I was wrong. :/ Basing my assumptions off of recent episodes that sucked was a bad idea. I'm quite warming up to it the more I go back and watch it again.Originally Posted by Edward Elric
Agreed. :xAnd is it just me, or does anyone else wish they'd revert back to their old motto? The new one just doesn't sound right. :\
