Wow--four cities in a row? Johto's more crowded than I thought. And where is Custer, anyway? (I don't expect my non-American readers to get the reference.)
If Ash and Misty thought those Stantler antlers were eyes, then I guess they did their job. Nice reference to real-life nature, where fake giant eyes are meant to scare potential predators. But how does Brock of all people see the difference. (I almost wonder if his eyes have atrophied, and he's seeing with the Force.)
"Palm Hills"? I'm guessing that's a cross between "Palm Springs" and "Beverly Hills." Ass Ketchum just can't pass up a chance to make a dork of himself with Misty, can he? Though the comparison he drew was kinda weak. (And I can only imagine what Misty-haters might've said.)
Little factoid: 90% of all butlers are either named "Jeeves" or "Sebastian." No, I don't know why that is, either.
Okay, a bedroom
For some reason, Misty screaming about Bug Pokemon reminds me of that scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, when Cameron screams upon seeing how many miles were put on his dad's Ferrari and the camera cuts to various scenes around Chicago. At least Misty didn't go catatonic.
Why would the TRio think that throwing bottlecaps would effectively deter the police from chasing them? For that matter, why did it work?
So Jenny Clone J-2 thought setting up Spinarak threads across
"Pokemon Exhibition"--I guess that's a Pokemon Contest without a formal system of judging or corresponding game mechanic, right? And Misty had a point about Ash's idea--who honestly thinks a TV show about Pokemon is at all worth watching? Anyone? Anyone?
It took Brock a while to get his flirt on, didn't it? Though if the Bellossom twins were having problems with their performance, wouldn't Bailey have had them practicing in private instead of before an audience?
Just outta curiosity: Has Our Gang ever gone anywhere without getting lost? (Even Togepi was dismayed.) A GPS would really come in handy.
I guess when it looks like the forest is coming to life, you might not have enough wits left to figure out if you're being snookered. For Ash, the worst part had to be getting rescued by Gary. A bit of his old arrogance was showing, but it was clearly tempered. Nice to see some sign of character development there.
Normally I'd mention
