    This episode was ok... It was cool to see Mime Jr. for the 1st time. Mime Jr. was really cute! I'm glad James ended up catching it, but it's sad to see him have to leave Chimecho there. Mime Jr's mimicing of James is so funny to see every time. It was interesting how both Munchlax and Chimecho became ill in this episode. It was cool to find out that the mansion used to be James' get-away home. It was funny seeing the gang and TR pretend that James wasn't a part of TR at all.

    I lked this episode. I feel sorry for James having to leave Chimecho. Glad he got a Mime Jr though. Also Munchlax got sick too. Overall a sad episode.

    Indeed a sad episode. James may be part of Team Rocket, but there is still some good inside of him. He hates leaving Pokemon he truly loves.

    Some of the new voices take some getting used to, but New!James is suited to this episode, probably more than Eric Stuart would've been. I adore the grandma's voice. So cute.

    I kinda wish there was a better reason to leave Chimecho. Why were Jessie and Meowth so impatient? Rude. So sad to see the little guy go :/

    Chimecho is so much better than Mime Jr and it's a shame it had to leave. I guess Team Rocket can't have too many Pokemon with them at one time.

    I agree, his new voice worked well with this episode, but IMO it was really bad in Fear Factor Phony. I'd pick Eric Stuart any day.
    On the topic of Chimecho, I teared up when James had to leave him, but it wasn't exactly devastating to me. I skipped S9 when I was younger so I don't know if it comes back (I haven't read the previous posts either, obviously) but I hope it does.

    My favourite of the Battle Frontier episodes. I just want to cry every time I watch this episode. It's so sad seeing James leave his Chimecho behind. :'(

    NO. Eric Stuart would've been wayyy better to me here. New James is the easiest adjustment to make however, NOT bashing Cathcart or anything, IMO. He's not bad at all, but I find Jimmy way too nasally and it's a bit distracting when he tries to emote. But Eric Stuart IS James IMHO. Of the three dub voices James has had, no one has shown that versatility and range Eric brought to the character. He could go from flat-out serious to absolutely hilarious in seconds flat. Say what you will, but personally I prefer Eric to even Shinichiro, homosexual stereotype in Hoenn included. Classic voice for James, and his best dub voice we'll ever hear for the anime IMHO. Eric Stuart FTW!

    His two favorite roles are Gourry and James. Interpret that as you will. IMO, Eric is better at Brock to me than James, but his James is still a timeless classic and far above his successor's work thus far. He's my pick for best dub voices for both characters, absolutely no questions asked.

    Not that I don't respect your opinion Bulba but to me James in my mind always screams Eric Stuart. EEEE and OOOOHHHH's included.

    Exactly: Eric Stuart is the best VA for James IMHO. He could easily pull off serious James (proof is just watch Kanto-mid Johto and serious moments in the Hoenn Saga dub). He could do hilarious James (late Johto-early BF) too. People just dis' him for saying "oh he's too homosexual in Hoenn and BF derp." Yeah, but that's because Eric was obviously trying to make James even more comedic than he already is (a joke villain), and I know he could do this moment well if he wanted to (or sadly, if he was given the chance to do so but I digress). That being said Jimmy/James Cathcart is not bad at James: he was the easiest to grow on of the current voice crew, and is good, but he is not on par with Stuart (even in BW)...better than Ted, yes, though. I will give James C. that much at the least. He's not nearly as 1D as Ted Lewis was (though again Ted is closest to Shinchiro overall because he never could do hilarious James barring some lines like "it's times likes these that make me wanna go straight!")

    Now, as for the dub, here's what I thought:

    Sarah was way too apathetic in this episode, almost lifeless, as Ash. Bland and forgettable. Subpar.

    Bill was alright as Brock, not too deep but not natural in his work as Brock. Average. (Here, he was trying a Stuart impression and it still worked for Brock until DP came along and Bill forever went down the toilet in the role).

    Michele was a bit weak as May: nothing special here. Subpar.

    Kayzie was alright as Max, though the voice she uses sounds so very wrong for his character. Subpar.

    Jimmy was alright as Meowth and good at James in this episode. His work as Meowth at this point in time was a genuine Maddie imitation (why he didn't keep this voice and made it ten times deeper, I do not know, I like this voice more here than in BW). Same can be said for James (lately he's been way way too nasally in the role in BW and he cannot pull off serious James at all there) but here he's a little good at the role. Sure he's no Eric Stuart (obviously not that good by any means), but at least it seems like he's trying to emulate Eric's work, so props to him here. Only, why does he call Chimecho, "CHIME?" Odd considering James called Chimecho, "Chimecho," all episodes prior to this one (even in Fear Factor Phony!).

    Yeah, he really loves his Pokemon and you also see that in Sinnoh when he leaves his Cacnea with Gardenia so it will become stronger. And if he wasn't a member of Team Rocket he would be a great trainer and a force to be reckoned with.

    This was a pretty good episode. It was pretty emotional, especially near the end.

    This episode was touching ....... and one of the best battle frontier episodes in My opinion. It was surprising that the mansion used to be James' old get-away home. James catching Mime Jr. was nice, but it's sad when he had to leave the poor Chimecho at the end. This episode was nicely animated and it showed the caring side of James, which is rare.

    These kinds of episodes, one's where we get more back story on one of the TR members, are always entertaining to watch.
    They had to play that song and make that one scene even sadder, didn't they? And I mean that in a good way!

    Munchlax and Chimecho both falling ill was way too convenient in my view, but I liked the way James's family's old home looked; it was a palace for God's sake. I didn't think they were that rich. I also wondered if the Weepinbell from his childhood flashback was his old one from OS. Anyway, I liked that James got a ton of character development here.

    Just annoyed me.
    Well James had every right to be nasty. They were trying to steal his family's and closest friends' pokemon. You don't just waltz into your teammate's home and try to make off with the resident pokemon. Plus, Jessie and Meowth have had it coming for a while considering how awful they are to him at times.

    Aside from that, the only dub voices i have a problem with are Meowth and Max. i could care less about Max since he'll only be around for one season anyway, and Meowth's is understandable.

    I was neutral about Chimecho usually but I did think that him staying behind was sad. I didn't like Mime Jr as his replacement

    It was funny to see James kinda freaked out when he imagined himself married with Jessie.TR focused episodes are always fun to watch and James got good development in this episode.But it was sad to see Chimecho leaving and the music was tear-Jerking. :'( 9.8/10.

    What a coincidence that James' family owned the mansion here and when he decided to leave his Chimecho behind, I felt sad. Mime Jr was ok as far as comedy goes, but I thought Chimecho should've stayed.

    Good for James leaving his Chimecho behind since it never did anything and was wasting away. Him getting Mime Jr. made me livid, though...

    Mime Jr. was my favorite DP Pokemon when this episode aired in 2006, but I wish James had gotten him and kept his Chimecho too.

    I think this might have been one of the best episodes in the show. I love when they humanize TRio and James seems to be the one that usually gets that treatment.
    First half wasn't so good tho so just a 9.
