"A Marathon Rivalry!" Review Thread
Ok, nobody got it. What's up with that? -_-' Lazy kids
Well, so-so episode. Nothing special. Probably skipable.
The Spoink bouncing around made this episode for me. The whole "I'll battle you to see who has a stronger connection with their Pokémon" bit was kind of funny. I'm glad that Ash didn't win the race for some reason. I don't really know for some reason. I guess I lost it. I initially thought that Pikachu won the race though so I was surprised that Snorlax won the race.
The Pokéathlon seemed interesting enough and I hope they bring it back for another episode (I'm guess they haven't yet?) though I wouldn't want to see it as a big part of the show like contests are. Yeah, that's about it I guess. Overall pretty enjoyable.
Overall though, the episode was pretty much satisfactory; a decent way to showcase the Pokéathlon from Johto and advertise HG/SS altogether.
I like how the writers made it seem like Ash and Brock already had some experience with the Pokéatlon because they were already in Johto. Maybe they went off-screen I don't know but it came off weird when they said it since you never saw it.
This episode was ok. Just... ok. Really. I think my favorite part was Meowth's Finger Poke of Death.
Also, did anybody else laugh at the very beginning of the episode because of the music?
"Oh, what a beautiful day it is-"
*Pan down to Ash and co.*
"OH GOD IT'S THEM"
A dull episode for the Pokeathlon. I suppose it wasn't good in the anime, after all.
The music went rather slow when it panned down to them, I thought, like they're clumsy and slow. Well, Ash didn't know what the trampoline was, I suppose.
- "What's that?" "Looks like a trampoline" -_-
- Urgh, what's up with Snorlax's voice??
- They never heard of Pokeathlon, the liars -_-
- Contest means you can't participate? -_-
- Hey, wait, we had an episode like this before. That Johto guy with the Sizor
- Huh, the scnientist guy sounds familiar...Barry?
- Urf, this is a dull episode for Pokeathlon's...
- NOOOOO punching Staraptor was HORRIBLE
- Soo...science is better than heart? This is a weird lesson, Pokemon o__o Wtf...
- Why couldn't Dawn compete in the Pokeathlon??
