This episode was truly great, and hilarious.
Ah, the Magikarp salesman. One of my favorite characters.
"Hm? Are you addressing me?"
"Yeah you boy, come over here!"
"What is it?"
"It's a Magikarp"
"Yes, and between you and me, it's a Pokemon goldmine"
"Yes. One Magikarp lays a thousand eggs at a time. Each of those Magkarp lays another thousand eggs. That's one million Magikarp. Then, each of those lays another one thousand eggs. That's a billion Magikarp!"
"Yes. You can sell one Magikarp for $100. Before you know it, you have more money than you know what to with. You can go on a Pokemon shopping spree!"
"A shopping spree... (has a fantasy about it)
"Normally I charge $100, but for you, I'll throw in an instruction manual, and an egg laying kit for just $300! (Says while slapping counter with fan)
"Oooh! I'll take it!"
"I can tell you are going to be rich man, a very rich man!"
That's hilarious. (I did quite a bit of paraphrasing) And later,
"Hey hombre, I want my, my money back!"
I like the scene where Meowth scratches the ball and says, "It's just gold plated!" Then James is horrified and goes, "Ahhhh!"
The scenes where they were eating were funny, especially the way Brock ate.
Of course, the trade talk, it's classic.
I'm glad that Ash realized how much he cared for Butterfree and traded back.
I liked all of the Pokemon Pyramid battling scenes.
The captain was weird, but funny.
I almost forgot about the beginning, when James was like, "Cool!" Then later, he goes, "Don't I make like the coolest girl?!" Then Jessie hits him and says, "Stop acting like an ignoramus!" Then James says in his normal voice, "Owww"
Persian premiered in this episode too.
10/10, a very funny episode
