  2. Charizard's Burning Ambition

    by , 16th May 2012 at 05:22 AM
    For a group that walks as much as they do, I wouldn't expect Our Gang to be so tired from walking...

    Kinda interesting to see the TRio owning up to the fact that they're no match for Our Gang in a straight-up battle, especially against Charizard. While I can certainly understand why the TRio would fear The Charizard, it would mean more if we'd actually seen the big guy used more often. As a matter of fact, since evolving, Charizard has been used against the TRio a grand total of...six ...

  3. Tanks A Lot

    Did Our Gang start the ep by sleeping on the job? Well, Fate certainly wouldn't let that go unpunished.

    Even though the ep started with the TRio at the controls of the Arbo-Tank, I'm guessing this Transformer was designed to pretty much drive itself. Otherwise, there's no way Togepi and Sentret could've wrought half the havoc they did. (Misty's gonna need a leash or something for Togepi.)

    I think this ep further established that Poke Balls can't be used to catch Pokemon that already have trainers (after the Season 1 Snorlax ep). And after Brock calmed down crybaby Marill twice, Misty was wondering why it was afraid of her. Gee, Misty, ya think it might be because you bonked the lil' guy in the head with a Poke Ball? ...

  5. Fighing Flyer With Fire

    So with Ash three badges behind compared to Kanto, we can finally see the inagural gym battle.

    It's too bad TPTB didn't come up with more bad guys for Ash to battle; that way, they wouldn't have had to reuse the TRio in every single ep. Is hard to take things seriously when Our Gang battles the same half-wits over and over, and doubly so when said half-wits wear disquises that Stevie Wonder could see through.

    And when the TRio stole Pikachu and outwitted Heracross, ...
