A Tail with a Twist: An AWESOME! episode. It started out really boring, but picked up suring the treecko vs seviper battle and kept up from there. The battles in this episode were really cool looking and well coregraphed. I love the new animation!! TR stole the show like usall and had all the best lines. Jessie's battle with seviper is one of THE most hilarious scenes EVER, in the history of pokemon. I guess no one else noticed, but James used the japanese name for mega kick in this episode. he said "Megaton Kick". Treecko's training was cool, as was the final battle of the episode. I thought the attack Treecko was learning was Slam, did they say what it was in the japanese version. Also, for some reason they used Habuneku's voice AND a new dubbed seviper voice. All the scenes where it was just hissing and making weird gurgly sounds were its japanese voice, then they dubbed it saying its name. overall, 4 stars
Taming of the Shroomish: Didn't they say the name of the town was.....Torque Town? ^_^;;;;. Anyway.....*yawn* this episode was pretty boring. Hoen is great with the plot episodes, but when they do a filler they really do a filler. It had a few good scenes and lines in it. TR of course had all the best scenes, and I liked how they were defeated. Shroomish had a decent dub voice, but I think I liked Kinokoko's voice more. The scene's between May and Brock were really cute, and I kept thinking they were acting like a married couple. Like that scene where May was window shopping and Brock wasn't too enthuisastic, I was thinking "He sounds like her husband". Hehehe, May/Brock shipping!!!! Other than that stuff, the rest of the episode was boring. the plot was rather cliched, and that Shroomish guy just appeared randomly out of thin air, and added nohing to the episode. I found him to be one of the more boring Characters of the day in the Pokemon series. overall, 2 stars.
