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.)
Misty's behavior when Togepi went missing seemed pretty out of character for her--for a while, she seemed more interested in checking out Sentret for a while than finding Togepi. Contrast this with other eps, when she nearly freaks out. I don't think Ash would've been so easily distracted if it were Pikachu MIA.
With all the nonstop antagonism since arriving in Johto, it was nice to get an ep in which Our Gang and the TRio were forced to work together. Broke up the repetitiveness a bit.
Remember what I said a few blogs back about Plan A never succeeding? It may have had some merit, but the mud wasn't thick or deep enough. Even Brock's army outfit couldn't have changed that. (Though he did look more like a soldier than anyone else in this ep.)
Just outta curiosity, what exactly was that attack that Togepi's Metronome triggered? Could've been some form of Dig.
Hey, someone finally remembered how strong Charizard is. Of course, it makes me wonder why they didn't call on him to help earlier?
Here's a bit of sage advice for the TRio: Never run into any piece of machinery that's about to explode.I guess TPTB couldn't let an ep go by without the TRio in the statosphere.
Since Jenny Clone J-5 only had a minute of screentime, she didn't have a lot to do; of course, it also meant she didn't have a chance to fail at doing her job. Though I do wonder if she or anyone else in that town had ever thought of drilling that tunnel through the mountain. Maybe they didn't have enough revenue to get started, or something.
Next: Charizard goes from champ to chump.
