Pokémon Emergency!

Posted April 12th, 2010 at 04:46 PM by I Laugh at your Misfortune!



Hey, whaddaya know, I decided to do something and didn't give up immediately. (That'll happen when I reach the turgid mountain of filler that is Johto)

Anyway, about the show. Once more, it was a great episode, both with and without the rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia, though I'll admit that looking at it critically, Team Rocket are a little indecisve. At the start, they're the suave, smooth villains who are telling witty jokes. Then, they become seriously threatening when they ransack the Pokémon Centre. And then...they get pwned just a bit too easily. A slightly longer fight scene of Pikachu vs. Ekans and Koffing would have done wonders for their reputation.

Still, the episode was by no means bad - it was great fun to watch and, ultimately, that's the important thing. The show does seem a little more sinister at this point, mainly with the whole "Pikachu might die" thing which, although not said, is at least implied. And I do think that's a good thing - a tv show or film can be deep without being un-child-friendly (see Pixar's Up) Anyway, I'm getting seriously tangential,so I'll just leave you with my ELOT. :P

Spoiler:
- The narrator says Spearows...do some pokémon have different plural forms then? I think Speraux would be cooler :P

- Jenny, it's a ten year old boy covered in burns. You think HE'S a criminal?

- Meowth's voice in this episode is a bit...odd

- TITLE DROP!

- I left my motorcycle parked at the front desk!

- That ringtone is more annoying than the Crazy Frog

- ASH HAS A FATHER?

- "He'll be so proud, you're the apple of his eye." - makes it sound like she still at least talks to him regularly.

- A million dollars? Don't they use Yen later?

- Anchovy...spinach...and pineapple?

- Just stick Pikachu into the magic recovery machine and go DING DING DING DING DING

- TR actually seem like a credible threat :P

- Um...Pikachu IS quite rare :P

- Which makes you wonder how the Viridian centre got so many

- Also, why do they need to be on a conveyer belt?

- Wait, Ash speaks Pikachu?

- WHY DOES THAT EXPLOSION NOT KILL EVERYBODY?


Next time: Ash catches a Pokémon!

    Shame they're more of a nuisance these days than any kind of threat.
