    This robot wasn't as much of a Transformers ripoff as the one in the B-Button league episode. Now that was a ripoff to be remembered lol.

    Anyways, I liked this episode a lot. It just proves that shows like 'Biggest Loser' aren't nexessary because if you go back to the basics. You can lose 200 pounds in 50 minutes :p

    i loved the fact that they used the Team Rocket song motto theme. 'The speed of light, prepare to fight one'.

    I sooooo wish TR would have kept those costumes. Look a lot better than their usual uniforms.

    Nice to see Yanmega again.

    Would have been so much easier if they just used a car to escape instead of a carbot.

    Would have been a bit more nostalgic if they just attacked the Pokemon Center full force with their balloon. And then the building can blow up.

    'If you can't see south of the borderline, you're getting chunky' lol. Especially if you've seen that Family Guy episodes witht those fat guys.

    That scene with TR's pokemon and Carnivine was cute for some reason.

    Why can't James keep his rose.

    Good, nostalgic episode we had. Can't wait for the next TR centered episode.

      Okies. This is an episode that is so going on my coolies list. Teeheehee

      First I go over the bad.

      Bad
      Ash intrupting Team Rocket in saying the opening title screen. I just found that really strange and kinda off sync. Still I am not sure if that how it was for the Japanese version but it just sounded bad. Teeheehee

      A thunderbolt? That is all to get rid of Team Rocket this time? I mean I can see that Team Rocket went back to basics in all of this but Ash couldn't destory the robot the olden way by causing it to catch on fire because the gas leaked or something? Teeheehee

      Good
      EVERYTHING!!! Teeheehee

      Okies I found it so strange that Team Rocket got so fat but you know what? I guess that the first thing they did once leaving the acadamy is spend most of James and Meowth's money at all you can eat buffets and not working it off. Teeheeheee

      The rose! The rose!!!! Did you saw the rose!!! That ever so coolies rose of James!!! IT IS BACK!!! Teeheehee and it became even more coolies. How we haven't seen it in so long. Teeheehee

      Now what I found coolies was the music. Now I know everybody is all happy about Double Trouble and so am I. It just that I am going to be pointing at a specific piece that I LOVE so much. The drumroll back ground music. You know if you listen to the background music right when they are driving up to the Pokemon Center and when James is doing that monlouge of a 'Stronger Jess'. That one!!!! EVER SO COOLIES!!! I so loved it back when they used it in Is that a Ralts I Hear? and I love it hear too. Ever so coolies.

      Then the first motto. Ever so coolies. I was so happy and surprise to hear that one. Background music and all. I mean I haven't heard that motto in the original form since the Orange Island. And I know people are going to say that they haven't used that motto since Johto but I am counting the background music since in Hoenn they used Team Magma and Aqua theme from the games in the Team Rocket background music. Still it was coolies to hear the old motto with the original background music. Teeheehee

      Still one thing that I kinda hoping they would so was Jessie and James doing doing an R pose. If you don't know what I mean then look at Make Room for Gloom. Teeheehee That is something I will never forgot from Team Rocket.

      Teeheehee They didn't make it Thunderbolt proof. Teeheehee

      Still super coolies episode.

        • Something stupid always happens in the kiddy background... always.

        • ...and look. The first rose we've seen from him in a while.
        • Giovanni has a Celebi? Oh dear.
        • 'Fire in her eyes' has a whole new meaning. xD
        • Stupid James eyes make their return!
        • Wobbufet? Where?
        • OMG A GLINT

        • ...and Dawn kills it.
        • "And now, we're going to show you the basics of beating the pants off of ya." Best... quote... ever!
        • It is flyin'!
        • OH MY GOD THEY'RE PLAYING DOUBLE TROUBLE! Highlight of the episode, definitely.
        • *booes Piplup*
        • Heh, Brock.

          You should! I haven't laughed at Pokemon in a while... It's a great episode(at least in my opinion). =)

            Well sometimes, you just gotta grow up, open up your head, and realize, "OH WAIT, it isn't 10 years ago!" Things change, and you just have to adapt to it... I love the newer episodes a ton more than the older ones, and this one was no exception to that!

              I completely agree with you. It gets annoying seeing everybody(not really everybody) complain about how much better Kanto/Jhoto was. I also get tired of the constant complaing about the voices. It's been how long since PUSA took over? Three years? You'd think they would just accept it by now. But to each his or her own....right?

              Ah..I feel better now.

                Yeah I agree to, don't get me wrong, I loved the original episodes but these are just as good as they were. About the voices, the voices are fine. Initially when the voices were first changed it was a little annoying. By now though, Ash's new voice should just be Ash. Brock's new voice should just be Brock. There's no reason to complain.

                I agree, the voice acting much better than it was in Battle Frontier. To be honest, I really think the new Ash suits DP because Ash looks a older, and then again, the old Ash suits Ash in Kanto because he looks and acts younger and it would feel weird having the new, older sounding Ash with Ash wearing his Kanto clothes. Haha

                And you've got to remember, there must be loads of new kids who started watching Pokemon from DP, so the new Ash is, and always has been, Ash. PUSA have dubbed well over 100 episodes now, which is more than Indigo League *and* Orange Islands I think, heh.

                  At least this Nurse Joy is nice, unlike the ones from "Pokemon Emergency", "Charmander, The Stray Pokemon", "Cruisin' For A Losin", and "Cerulean Blues".

                  I just wish that Team Rocket would win at once at the end.

                    The voice is definitely better, but idk if Ash sounds older. I guess there are times when he does but then there are also time when he literally sounds like girl.

                      Same. Or at least Jessie, James, and Meowth, especially because of times like in this episodes where they lost mostly by coincidence. They didn't KNOW Ash and Co would be there, so their not-electric-proof folly wouldn't have mattered otherwise. I mean, I'm cool with getting the Pokeballs back eventually, but why can't Team Rocket at least send them off to Delibird first or something? Then THEY would win, but the evil-evil part of the organization wouldn't.

                        Anyone know the name of the music when Team Rocket gets all fired up and pointing upwards near the beginning of the episode? I think I heard it somewhere.

                          PUSA replaced the Japanese version(which had lyrics) and used an instrumental. It's an awesome song, so I'm glad they did.

                          It first played in the episode "The Song of Jigglypuff" in Indigo League where Team Rocket make up a new song. Epic.

                          Was it really a song version in Japanese!? And they replaced it with an instrumental!? I hope this is a sign of things to come! Have they ever replaced lyrics with an instrumental version before? All I can think of is in "King and Queen for a Day" where Gotta Dance was in lyrics in the dub, but they changed it to instrumental afterwards for DVD and the rest of the world.

                            Yup! They sure did. At first I thought they used a sound-alike, but then I listened and comapared both version, and was like It's the first time that they have ever done this. I hope they do it more often!

                            sorry, I meant another bit. I may have accidentally confuzzled you

                            It was...let's see...Starting at 6:49

                            It sounded familiar and it was probably some nostalgic thing which I don't remember

                              Took them long enough. I thought they would start again a long time ago.
