Here is where you can discuss the misbehaving Pokemon and training themed "Showdown at Linoone".

My review to come forthwith.

Err, I think it was a lot like some of the othe episodes they have had in earlier seasons. Such as the one where the Murkrow steal Ash's poke-balls. But I liked the nick-name for the Lioone (<-- can't spell)

Ugh... um, I didn't like this episode. Don't get me wrong, Linoone is a cute pokemon and stuff, but... I'll explain.

Things I Liked:

Linoone animated. It's a cute pokemon. ^.^

Erm... *is trying to think of something else but can't* I guess that's it for the liked part. >.>

Things I Disliked:

Linoone's voice. My ears...! Does every pokemon nowadays have to be voiced by a straining Eric Stuart? X_X Seriously, I had to hear enough of that guy's voice while watching Yugioh... I don't need to hear any more of it.

The plot. Kid has problem with pokemon --> Said pokemon gets Ash involved somehow --> Ash helps heal the bond between kid and pokemon while Team Rocket try and steal them. This is what made Johto so darn boring. What are the writers thinking?? -.-

Team Rocket's decision to steal a freakin' Linoone rather than the extremely rare items that were left unguarded and forgotten by the twerps. o.o I mean... dude. O.O

Something I was a bit confused by was what exactly the problem was. So... lemme see... the kid's Zigzagoon evolved. Then the kid didn't play with it anymore because... he thought it wouldn't like to play?? I don't get it. It's just kinda... weird. Why wouldn't his parents go "Gee *kid's name*, your new Linoone looks kinda lonely, maybe you should just try to play with it at least?" I mean really! Why was this even a problem. Perhaps I just misinterpreted the situation, but I don't get it.

Overall, a 2/10.
