    I was wondering that, too. I mean, it's so inconvenient. Thieves are supposed to steal quickly, not use the slowest possible means of capturing an entire farm!

    And then Jessie wants to say it's too serious for a song. How the hell was I supposed to take that seriously?

    Remember we are talking about Jessie, James, and Meowth here. XD. lol.

    Oddly enough, I've always found them the most relatable characters on the show, and the most well developed. I didn't like them when they were serious that much. While I think it's great they were finally getting closer to Giovanni and their dreams, the way it was executed was in such a dull fashion that it was rather boring to watch.

    Well, since the whole "serious upgrade", they've had a whole bunch of fancy gadgets and to just see them use that ridiculous invention was just laughable.

    The only thing that bothered me about the change was that it just seemed really random. Nothing really made them decide to act totally serious.

    Same here. There was no real reason why they changed personalities like that to me, either.

    To me it's because Dragonite was trying initially to put up a tough image, but by the end was showing that he cared about whether Ampharos would succeed instead of reluctantly helping all along like it could have done.

    I liked this episode because Mareep.

    To think I only got five hours of sleep (I was really busy last night and went to sleep around 3 AM) just to wake up at 8 to watch this episode. That's two episodes in a row that N isn't in, and I'm really hoping he or Team Plasma are in the next episode (don't spoil it for me if that's true).

    Still, Ampharos is ultra cute and it's one of my favorite Electric types, so it was nice to see one in a major role, which I think hasn't happened since Johto. I still can't get over the pronounciation; I always thought it was pronounced "am-PHAR-os" (as in, "phare" is French for lighthouse) not "AM-pher-OSS".

    If that's true, then how the heck are we supposed to know how to correctly pronounce the English names?

    OK, I hate to say it but this episode was felt pretty bland and unnecessary.

    The plot and today's problem seemed so cheap and kind of forced, it almost reminded me of Johto fillers. And, is it me or was this episode just meant to reaffirm the prejudice that sheep are kind of...slow-witted?

    The only two good things about this episode were first Dragonite acting as a coach (and being pretty good at that) and second that we finally got to see inside a Pokeball. If you ask me, it looks pretty narrow and sterile inside those Pokeballs, though. Well, at least we now know that Pokemon mustn't suffer from claustrophobia.

    Well, I can't really say much more about the episode apart from the fact that I think the writers should have spared us this one and make the Team Plasma introduction a two-parter instead.

    Actually the inside of a Pokeball has been seen before. I believe it was Misty's Psyduck at the end of the episode it was caught in. But that was years ago so I guess it's easy that one could forget. Besides the inside of that Pokeball was just an empty white space.

    I thought this episode was rather cute! Especially because of Pikachu and Axew's cuteness in it lol. Dragonite acting as a coach was neat too. And though I didn't like how there was no explanation for Team Rocket turning more serious, I liked the change. Their old selves got old. They were entertaining for a time, but the goofiness got boring for me.

    And as for their method of capturing the Mareep, yeah, it was really slow, but I doubt just rushing over in front of everyone would've been a much better idea.

    TPCi's pronounciations are actually Nintendo of America's official names. Despite this, I must agree with Lord_Mewtwo that I'm personally not as fond of them as much as I was the 4Kids pronounciations. They seemed to roll off the tongue more easily to me. Then again, I miss a lot of things from the 4Kids dub sometimes (especially VT's Ash), even if I'm used to the TPCi dub now. Sorry for going off topic for a bit there, but I think that's the case.

    For the record I pronounce Ampharos Am-far-os. Always have since G/S came out, and that's how I'll keep pronouncing it.

    Remember how many times he's battled James' Weezing, and yet he had to scan Roxie's Koffing with the Zukan/Pokedex? Seriously, it's Ash, you know him all to well to think he'll remember stuff! JK. :)

    yep i agree, although in unova he seems to do this mess more tho. I still sorta blame that on the fact that he has the only pokedex in the group whereas in AG and DP the girls usally scanned the pokemon that ash already seen.
