    Aight, let's go back to the classics and watch Foul Weather Friends! It involves weather research and Hoppip in Johto. That's about it. Discussion of this one will happen from August 26 - September 1!

    I really loved this one, mainly cause we are seeing a Pokemon we never really see in the anime plus Hoppip is a really adorable 'mon. I also really didn't see the point of TR's plan this ep. It obviously wasn't one of their best schemes.

      the hoppip scale makes no sense is2g. or maybe i just don't understand wind. but like what if the hoppip are on the edge of a much larger breeze but only one gets picked up because the force where they are is weak. or they're slightly sheltered by a fence/rock/house. or some get stuck so the results are skewed. this system is not accurate in the slightest oh my god this woman has no idea what she is doing

      & meowth being so calm about announcing a tornado & ridiculously peppy BGM during the hoppip rescue ahaha

      but yeah hoppip are super cute

      eternallyanna: maybe they wont

      OzzyCake: then they should be put down
      eternallyanna: OH MY GOD OZZY
      OzzyCake: I would just grind up an Everstone into their food
      OzzyCake: Hoppip is too cute to waste

      Well, if you look at the way the area was, it looked pretty controlled. It was pretty flat without any obstructions, except the rock that was shown and even still it looked like it was on the edge of the area. It looked to me like she knew what she was doing. And the house was prob out of the way of the direction the wind was blowing, and even if it wasn't it still looks like there is enough space for a semi-accurate reading.

      Spoiler:


      but omg yea the bgm was so unfitting

        It took me a while of watching "Unfair Weather Friends" to realize I was watching the wrong episode...

        I liked the episode. Considering that Wobbuffet wasn't owned by Team Rocket yet, I was ok with the episode not having enough Wobbuffet. LOL at Oddish when it was painted pink, I can't believe the gang didn't recognize it. Also, how did Mariah know that those Hoppip were hers? For all we know, they could've been snagging other peoples' Hoppip after the tornado...

        Haha, I found the BGM to be ridiculously random. Meowth was cracking me up this episode, probably to make up for the lack of Wobbuffet

        Hm, I found Meowth's plan to be quite clever.

          But wind blows all directions. Like storms usually move vaguely west to east, but wind is ****ing everywhere.
          i actually really hate wind it is my least favourite weather phenomenon

          ahaha i didn't realize there was such a similarly titled ep out there. kind of want to watch it now

          true. or maybe most others in the area are sensible and don't leave their hoppip out during storms

            Don't forget, the tornado ripped Mariah's house to shreds

            And I want to suggest next week's episode: A Better Pill to Swallow S4 E13
            I found this episode to be hilarious and it can also be watched from Pokémon's official website this week and next week. It involves Shuckle, our favorite Pokémon

            There were still three directions open (I'm assuming the Hoppip "pen" is a square). And like I said earlier, there looks to be enough space between the house and pen for the wind to sweep through.

            As for the Hoppip, maybe they were tagged? haha

              True. But, you know... basements and storm shelters...
              ACTUALLY
              The weather in PokéWolrd is rlly questionable like is this not the only tornado we see throughout Johto? Or like ever? They're like halfway between Violet and Azalea and I don't rlly think that's tornado country. And that house seems p flimsy tbh. More like a cabin. Built of Lincoln Logs or something.

              bottom line marian's a crazy and modern johto architects should be fined

              and sure let's get some shuckle up in here

              edit TAGGED LIKE CATTLE

                Wee finally watched this one. It's great to see one that has ol' Shuckie in it and probably the first I've seen that has a shiny in it.

                Also nice to see them take a break from seriousness and have a "funny" episode. Seriously I couldn't stop laughing after TR drunk the juice and especially when Jesse was being attacked by all the Shuckles.

                Also jeebus that Bellsprout is fast.

                  "A Better Pill To Swallow" or "Shiny Shuckle's Aphrodisiac"? Because WOW watching that as an adult---

                  Was an amazing episode. Extremely entertaining and wow. I really want a gif of Shuckle licking their lips around Team Rocket lmao.

                    I thought this episode was going to be a really boring filler when I first watched it a few weeks ago. But nope, it took an unexpected twist lol. This is definitely one of the funniest episodes that I've ever watched. When a Shuckle would stick its tongue out at Jessie, I lol'd every time at her reaction xD

                    So much romance in this episode

                    I found a gif from this episode while searching for a good gif for my signature, so I'll edit this post and add the gif when I get home.

                    MIAU beat me to it :(

                    I actually started watching the anime starting from episode 1 a while ago, and I've slowly made my way into the Johto seasons. Turns out, I actually watched this episode and the next couple of episodes last week-end, so this is a weird coincidence, hehe.

                    So on to the episode, it was hilarious! What's with Spooky (?), are Bellsprout supposed to be that speedy? And was that a shiny Shuckle? I googled it and it's blue, huh.

                    Anyway, so much love in this episode, hehe.

                      eeeeee gifs

                      I like that the consensus is that this episode was the best thing. Because it was. And the Bellsprout was named Spoopy and I can not get over that because tumblr. Like there's really not much to say about this episode beyond how that is entertainment.

                          aaaaaahhhh skitty omg so cute

                          like seriously this episode is so cute. From Torchic running down the hill to Skitty running in circles on the couch and playing omg i can't handle it

                          Also I really liked the Meowth/Skitty love interest even though i'm pretty sure Skitty just used Attract. And the way Skitty was caught hnnnngh
                          like seriously that is the best way to catch a pokemon :3
                          okay i'm sorry i couldn't resist

                          Aah this entire episode was super-adorable ♥

                          Skitty chasing her tail on the couch reminded me of this kitty I saw once chasing its tail on a bar stool, poor thing got dizzy and fell off

                          Back to the episode, I really liked Meowth in this one, helping Skitty run away from TR so she won't be unhappy with them, instead of keeping her with them so he can be around her. Now that's love, hehe.

                          And it seems like Skitty's gonna be a troublemaker, letting herself out of her Poke Ball. Plus, the way she got captured was so funny, reminded me of the way Misty's Psyduck was caught.

                          ETA: Oh oh, and Skitty playing cat and mouse with Pikachu! Get it, cat and mouse, 'cause Skitty's a kitty and Pikachu's a ... Okay, okay, I'll let myself out now

                              Aw man, I always cry at farewell episodes, they're always so sad

                              And it's also nice to see TR's good side, and see their Pokemon get some character development, though it's too bad this time it was right before saying goodbye. It's funny 'cause I didn't even know James's Cacnea -- and didn't really care about Cacnea in general, and it was the same case with Jessie's Dustox, but it was still very emotional.

                              It was kind of spoiler-y to watch this episode now, but on the other hand, I'm really looking forward to catch up, because this episode was really good, so I can't wait to meet all the new characters and Pokemon. I'm halfway through Johto League Champions, so it's a long way to go

                              ughhh this episode gave me a bunch of sads. ;__; I didn't watch much of Hoenn or Sinnoh but just seeing James so broken when he decides to give Cacnea to Gardenia is just heartbreaking I feel like crying just posting this. I really liked the episode though since it really is nice seeing the other sides of Team Rocket other than the side that wants to steal Pokemon to give to the boss.

                                I love love love Cacnea and I adore James and what I really really want to say about this episode is that if you do not think Carter Cathcart is a good James than you are very very wrong. His voice acting was absolutely wonderful in this. And I love Rocket development because honestly those three really are part of the main cast and are great characters with a great friendship and really deserve some focus time.
