That was actually a pretty well-set up episode tbh. Well-paced, fairly interesting, and standard silliness for Pokémon. Master Hamm was a cool dude, Kyle was pretty cool, and Terri was rad. I mean the Hitmon trio was expected, as was the Terri-Kyle relationship. But I was impressed with how well May and Ash took up battling with Pokémon and styles they weren't used to. I liked the presence of other fighting types, but would have liked the dojo to be a little more populated than just Terri and Master Hamm.

I suppose Terri didn't really realize she could take over because she and the Hamms were so focused on Kyle being the successor that it pretty much became a fact in their minds.

What a "like-father-like-son" episode tho lmao.

Oh and I noticed Eric Stuart's old man voice it the same as his James-with-facial hair voice. I'm kind of amazed tho- as much as I can immediately identify actors, I'm still almost never confused at who is talking. Except in ONE CASE and that is Maylene and Misty. Who are separated by a bunch of seasons and a complete cast change, so I have no idea why I keep having to remind myself that it's Maylene and not Misty.

So, I remember The Crystal Onix (OS 087) being a good episode. Let's see if I'm wrong idk. I know I enjoyed it but um things change, as I found out when looking at some ancient RocketShipping stuff with Pigg last month. That was an experience. NOT ALL THINGS ARE AS GOOD AS YOU REMEMBER GUYS.

Lmao don't worry, I think it's a pretty good episode. It's been a while since I've watched it but there're some traditional values in this episode that we don't see often. There's also a really cool crystal Onix :3

Well I'm going to get in on this since it look like fun.=)

Hope you don't mind me reviewing the one from last week aswell as this week.I watched them both today. The crystal Onix is actually a special episode to me due to the inspiration scene. I could relate so I just had to watch it since I hadn't watched it in a long time.^-^

The crystal Onix:
I thought it was funny when Team rocket got caught in their own traps. I also love it when everyone is wondering how they got out of it and they practically say even the writers can't work it out.XD

I always found it a bit odd that despite seeing the crystal Onix coming out of a lake of water that they even thought Cloyster would even be good against it in the first place.............

I love the scene when the inspiration happens. I just find it very memorable.=3

It's a good episode and I enjoyed it.^-^

Pikachu re-volts- Brilliant episode. That Drowzee was really powerful though I did smile a bit at points because it looked like it was dancing when controlling the Pokemon.=3

I enjoy seeing jessie, james and meowth switching to the good side for this episode. It was some nice team work at points.

Ash as usual puts his life on the line. Though he succeeded in freeing the pokemon doing so.

Loved the team rocket double motto.XP

One of the best moments ever ngl. xD I mean seeing them caught was funny enough but then they just tripled that with the escape explanation.

I KNOW RIGHT?? dang Mateo get your logic functioning


Like I said, Pikachu Re-Volts was really, really good. I love J&J being kind of in the grey area- we know they've got good hearts, but when they lean toward the good side they can help a lot. My favourite scene though was when they were all in the Pokémon Center and seeing J&J's internal conflict and being confronted by Ash like... whoa, that came across really well.

I KNOW RIGHT. They're just so good at heart. It's actually a really interesting place to put them- they're honestly good people, but a little naive and working for the bad guys. They're the "main villains", but they help more than they hurt, especially when actual villainous people come along. They're bad at being bad and good at being good, but they're under obligation and have been trained to try to be bad. I think it's pretty cool cause they're kind of showing kids "hey, people who do bad things aren't always bad. and people who do good things aren't always good." They're representative of the grey zone of morality.

We all live in a Pokémon world~

Pikachu Re-Volts was a pretty good episode. Botch and Cassidy's hypnosis plan was really smart but I'm not sure about its originality -- there was another episode that involved a Drowzee or Hypno using mass hypnosis, whether or not it aired before is beyond my memory. But yeah it's nice to see TR working with the twerps and actually not attempting to steal Pikachu afterwards.

All three were good people before they joined TR but they didn't like living that kind of life.

"Wrong is where we belong."
- Jessie

The Crystal Onix was okay but not as good as Pikachu Re-Volts. Besides the rude shop owner, there's not much to comment on until they start looking for the Onix. Tracy why did you not use Marill in the first place? Lol at TR in their own traps. At first I thought that the traps were made so people don't enter the cave. Mateo, you fool, what made you think that water would be super effective against an Onix that lives in a pond? That inspiration scene was so weird, not sure how that would inspire anyone haha.

Ah, that'd be Hypno's Naptime, and it did air before that but that one was just an accidental side effect of using Hypno to help some old people sleep lmao.

I like to think that the TRio could run a legitimate business and be happy. They'd have fun working out how much they could charge people for stuff and still seem like they're being reasonable. :P

For Crystal Onix I know what you mean about the inspiration scene haha. The scene itself wasn't that inspiring but it got across that he was inspired by it well enough I guess. how much cooler would it be if they did it with XY's animation budget tho!

I remember that TR sometimes set up a fake ribbon shop during AG contest episodes and sell them at expensive prices. They need to make money for all of those contraptions somehow.

You could make an endless gif from that scene. Perhaps if Mateo's grandpa told him that all he had to do was look deep into his own pupil 100 times, he could've never ended up in a rut :P

Especially since they don't get paid most of the time lmao. tbh they're both really impressive scammers and engineers- imagine what they could do!

pffft. But seriously I don't know why Mateo was even out to capture the thing- he knew his grandpa didn't so why did he think it was a necessary step?

I was also confused by that. I thought he was going to battle Onix to gather inspiration but nope, catching it is the only way!

Suggestion for next week's WAC episode: BW094 The Road to Humilau!

I think TRio could run a legit business too. They did a amazing job in the sinnoh league for example. I was impressed at the steps they took to gain business despite the disadvantages they were put in. They definitely know a little bit about business.

Who knows. Maybe he thought that he'll need it to look at it constantly to remind him but once he got the inspiration he realised the inspiration will always be with him and that the onix gave him all the inspiration he needed for life thus not needing the Onix to be caught in the end.

Fair point! It was a learning experience for a young man, after all.

So this week's episode will be Road to Humilau! Some late BW to contrast the early OS we've been watching~ This one will be open for discussion until February 3! (why the heck did I almost type November oh my god)

boi don't tell me that I don't need more encouragement to get off-track.

By the way- if y'all haven't noticed, there's a list of eps on the first page marked [VDay]. We're gonna be having Valentine's events. Those episodes are shippy. Wobbu and I are going to be streaming them. They're all going to be fair discussion game in here from Feb 8-22. Suggest more, if you would! Any ship is cool.

Road to Humilau reminded me of how much I miss the Meloetta arc ;_;
So we were introduced to Cameron with this episode and HE IS SO UNORGANIZED.
Spoiler:
How he beat Ash in the Unova League is unfathomable.

The first half of this episode was okay. It took a lot of time away from the battle but we learned a lot about Cameron during the process. How did Ash and Cameron not notice those two cliffs? Cliffs are not Pokémon; they can't wildly appear. Lol at Meloetta when it just floated and did nothing while everyone struggled to save Cameron from falling off the second cliff.

I may or may not have picked this episode because of Wailord, but that's not important right now. What's important is that Cameron's battle with Marlon was really cool because of how it played out. Ferrothorn, though being at a huge field disadvantage, defeated Jellicent (a little too easily if you ask me) but fell prey to Cursed Body. I'm really glad that Jellicent's ability took affect because Cursed Body is a cool ability. We got to see Cameron's strategic side when he battled Mantine, which was a nice change of pace :P

This was an okay episode. I laughed a few times. I couldn't help imagine the idea of how lost ash would be if his traveling companion was Cameron only for the entire region.^-^;;;;;

I mean seriously they both forgot to pack their lunches?

Thank goodness meloetta was there to help.=)

I enjoyed the battle in the gym. It was nice seeing Samurott in action.=3

My favorite part was when Mantine and Samurott dove underwater and Samurott used its speed to its advantage. It would've been really cool if Marlon used his Wailord. He would've won fo sho.

When Ash and Cameron almost fell off the cliff twice, I was looking at Meloetta like "Do something! Don't you have psychic powers!?"

Also, when Cameron forgot Riolu during the gym fight, that was so hilarious, hahaha!

Sixteen Days of Romance

Feb 8 - 23

Er, hello, everyone. I've been roped into this event by my sister and Serena. I guess I'm the only one who can figure out how to livestream from the Holo-Casters. Oh, um, I'm Clemont. The girls gave me a list of... "shippy" episodes to show over the sixteen days of events. I'm just the tech guy, though- your hosts will be Anna and Wobbu. They'll schedule streams on various days at various times and will announce them in the Streaming Thread, so keep an eye on that. They won't be showing them all at the same time, but every episode will be streamed at least once.

Let's see... all of the episode are fair game for discussion in this thread from February 8th to the 23rd. After that, the Watch-Along Club will resume as normal on Monday the 24th. Feel free to watch any or all of these on your own or join in the streams. The list is below, in broadcast order:
♥ Holy Matrimony! [OS048]
♥ Wherefore Art Thou, Pokémon? [OS100]
♥ Misty Meets Her Match [OS103]
♥ The Stun Spore Detour [OS110]
♥ The Heartbreak of Brock [OS198]
♥ Love, Petalburg Style! [AG069]
♥ Who, What, When, Where, Wynaut? [AG113]
♥ Fear Factor Phony [AG146]
♥ Queen of the Serpentine [AG158]
♥ Spontaneous Combusken [AG162]
♥ The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing [AG187]
♥ Tag, We're It/Glory Blaze/Smells Like Team Spirit [DP050-052]
♥ Tanks for the Memories [DP062]
♥ The Path That Leads to Goodbye! [BW131]
♥ Training Daze [Chronicles 12]
♥ Pokémon Heroes [M05]
♥ The Rise of Darkrai [M10]
If you want to suggest a few, I'm told you're allowed to do so within the next few days. The girls said there were probably some big ones that they missed, so if you remember some then please speak up. You all can start chatting about the episode in here at any time, then. And make sure to check out the other events!

I did find the one that Ash rescued pretty adorable and also felt a little giddy when they were herding them all. That was pretty cool. Also Pidove evolving so cute aaaa
