    Default Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita!

    BW055 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    Ash and friends encounter a trainer named Katharine who is constantly being manipulated by her bratty Gothita. When Gothita takes a liking toward Ash's Scraggy, it tries to push Katharine into trading one of her other pokemon for the Shedding pokemon. Ash rejects the offer, but is finally persuaded to a battle with Katharine to determine the outcome. Will Ash lose Scraggy, and will the Gothita ever learn to show some respect?

    This episode is an oasis in a drought of what are a string of mediocre pokemon outings imo. Between the bromance, the pokemon training the trainer and a Totoro shout-out, there's a lot to love here.

    Sounds like Kerry Williams has returned to the show since I'm 90% sure she's voicing Katharine.

    Garb-odor. I didn't notice that. I've been pronouncing it differently. It's nice to see the pokes get some focus. Oh dear, a title drop. :P

    Wow, that Gothita is such a kid.

    Edit: I think my fox avatar makes this comment look creepier than originally intended.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Ahhhhh! I was listening and thought, "Man, Katharine sounds like Jirachi from M06. But that was made under 4kids, so that's not very likely at all." then the credits were all, "WE DON'T CARE, CAUSE IT IS JIRACHI!" and I was all, "OOHHHH!!!! <33" and stuff.

    In non-crazy speech: I'm really happy Kerry is back. :) Really, she has a lovely voice. Casey, Jirachi, and all the others. The former two being some characters close to my heart. I really hope we see more of her. Thank you TPCi. Thank you for bringing her back.

    Wow, Garbodor is... massive. Until now I thought they were half that height.

    Anyway, I was surprised by this episode. It was actually a pretty good episode despite being another filler. There was enough action and story to keep me interested the whole time. However I am very ready for the actual plot to start moving along again.

    Soon enough, soon enough Enzap. The gap between Nimbasa and Driftveil is much smaller than the gap between Castelia and Nimbasa. Only a few more episodes now. :)

    It took me until the second half of the episode, but I finally realized... I'm hearing Casey's voice again.

    I didn't realize that Gothita demanded (ah, as the title shows) its trainer to trade something for Scraggy until watching the dub. I can related to Iris' question in that it is tough to determine who the real trainer of the two is. What a spoiled Pokemon.

    Garbodor's voice was pretty awesome. Really manage to come off monstrous.

    Gothita is funny. He should have chosen Oshawott because he looked cute jumping around like that, and it made me sad to see him sad when he didn't get chosen. :( Great episode. I can't wait until they get to Driftveil City. I've been pronouncing Garbodor's name wrong. I always though it was like garb-OH-door.

    If anyone asks me, that Gothita totally got what she deserved when Snivy gave her a well deserved spanking.

    That being said, Garbodor was awesome and Katherine was super cute. I hope she trades Gothita for something else.

    There was plenty for me to admire in this episode:
    *I loved the brotherly relationship between Scraggy and Axew
    *Snivy was so boss with her Mama Bear attitude
    *Garbodor's voice was just perfect for the kind of Pokemon it is
    *Axew's nightmare was just hilarious

    "Snivy saves the day" In my opinion that's the perfect sentence to describe this week's episode. I mean, the rest was rather standard and not very exciting but I did love how Snivy is so superior to anyone else. I love it because it reminds me of Cynthia and if you take a close look at Snivy's eyes, you'll realize that they look just like Cynthia's eyes and that Snivy even has the same expression on her face as the Queen of Pokemon.

    What I didn't like, though, was the fact that the battles felt pretty forced and predictable. Of course, it had already been clear right from the start that Ash would win.
    And what happened to Gothita's last Psyshock attack? It seems it just disappeared because we didn't see Snivy dodge it.

    Also, the pronunciation of Gothita's name was inconsistent. Katharine , Ash and the others pronounced it Go-THI-ta, while the Pokemon itself said "GO-thi-ta"
    "When I was younger, I used to dream of nothing other than becoming powerful through being victorious in battle, and so I trained endlessly."
