    He did actually sand it down and make it himself...

    Perhaps people expect the item to be explicitly mentioned as such.

    Then again, the rock itself doesn't seem to have magical properties that makes Happiny evolve, all it has to do is pretend it's an egg and that somehow makes it evolve.

    Never thought about it, but Happiny's evolution is very strange (The whole species I mean).

    I thought they stated in the episode that it was an oval stone. I just always assumed it was

    Very good and touching episode. Glad to see that Happiny evolved as well. Good thing I didn't check this thread before I saw the episode since I don't know about anyone else, butthat evolution was a surprise for me.

    It was nice to hear Kaze to Issho ni played in an episode again, even though it didn't fit at all. Overall, I think the episode was okay.

    Watched it a few minutes ago. It was a bit dull in parts but otherwise fine.

    Lucky just seemed pointless though. I was really bemused that it wasn't in the next scene...

    Brock's character undergoes a major twist in development, only for him to be written off the show the very next episode. That's sad

    I liked the joke of TR finding "treasure" and making a mention to Gold, Silver, Platinum, Pearl, and Diamond, only for it to be a bottlecap. Still, it was enough to make the Tentacruel attack everything in sight.

    Pichu tried so hard, only to suffer the worst. And TR at the end reminds me of those early movies where they'd get stuck somewhere in a hopeless situation (i.e. stranded on some way-faraway island)

    Brock's first ex machina (far as I remember) in the form of Happiny evolving into Chansey and saving the day. All of this to "Together with the wind". (I had always figured he'd be more popular with the Joys once he got one of the Chansey family. As long as Croagunk isn't around, that is...)

    Once again the anime breaks physics to make plot. Very depressing (not bad) plot. When Peacha Berries and a Lava Cookie (about time they showed one) fail, somehow Softboiled and an Oran/Durin mix does

    Who knows. Maybe they'll write Brock back back in as the nurse of one of the Pokémon Centers in Isshu or after.

    Sorry for the long-winded ramble. Brock-centered episodes tend to be some of the better ones in my opinion (probably because he gets so few), and since this is his last time to shine, he had to shine bright. First part of the plot was a tad cheap, though (a bottlecap. Seriously). 9.5/10
