    I'm assuming you haven't seen the sixth movie, right? Because Ludicolo's voice is TERRIBLE in English. They decided to make it sound like a 34-year old man. :\

    Sorry, but I just found that funny. That aside, I've always thought that Ludicolo's dub voice was pretty funny. Ludi~colo... LU-DI-COLO!
  3. Blast it all, he beat me to it!!! (GT slams his fist on the control panel, only to discover to his horror that he accidently hit the trigger for the AT-MTB's proton torpedo battery...seconds later, his beak hits the deck as half the thread is blasted into a cratered ruin by over four dozen massive explosions). Doh!!!

    Personally, I'm hoping for dub voice akin to Corphish's, albeit a little higher-pitched. That just seems to fit these critters to a T. As to the pits, I found myself imagining Ash-tachi thinking, "Did we just miss a meteor shower?" as they got to those sand-holes. That Diglett tank demolition was a riot...Attack of the Pack-Emon, anyone?

    BTW, did anyone notice something in common among the other wild pokemon in this ep? Nidoran (fe)male, Rhyhorn/Rhydon, Donphan, and Girafarig...all pre-Hoenn field pokemon. I don't exactly mind, but I do find it a little jarring. Why no Poochyena/Mightyena, Zigzagoon/Linoones, and/or Electrikes/Manetrics?

    Indeed, fred...When I saw those pics(with Ash underground with that ranger), I just got a feeling that someone's going to make a ship out of them. She certainly wouldn't the first one-shot female character that Ash has been paired of with in ships...

    Both Zigzagoon and Poochyena were present.
    I've already named it TrapinchShipping.

    I've always liked Trapinch's design.

    -It's Orange and White, like a clown fish or an orange creamsicle.

    -It has macaroni legs.

    -Its face is shaped like a Corphish claw.

    -Its shiny.

    -The best part is the eye, which is a star inside of a black circle. It reminds me of the old dot fade-out that old fashion TVs have.

    What was that attack the Vibrava used against TR? Screech?

    Chouonpa: Supersonic. I don't get why it had a physical effect either.

    Not only that, Vibrava can't even learn that move. Are you sure it was Supersonic?

    There's no doubt whatsoever that that's what Heihachirou identified the attack as. The zukan entry also mentioned it.

    Me thinks Supersonic is an egg move for Trapinch.

    Pack-Emon, XD. Now all we needed are some Shuppet.

    EDIT: Me thought wrong. :(

    Great. Looks like the writers are confusing Vibrava with Yanma... -_-

    Not according to either this site's Pokedex or my printed NP guide. Both say that Trapinch's only egg moves are Focus Energy, Quick Attack, and Gust.

    They've been putting attacks on Pokemon that have never learned them since the beginning almost. This is just the latest victim. But yeah -_-.

    I checked it as well. It isn't an Egg Move. I thought it was. Oh well, I'm not all knowing.

    Maybe it will be like Gary's Arcanine. At the time the episode aired, they could not get fire spin, but later it became an egg move or whatever. It seems unlikely that this will be the case, but you never know. Anyway, I thought this was a pretty good episode, it reminded me a lot of the episode with Steven way back on Dewford Island. Seeing the Trapinch line in the show was pretty cool, I've always thought they were interesting pokémon. Am I the only one who thinks Vibrava (and Flygon too for that matter) should have been bug types? I mean, just look at them, they look like bugs. They should have been Bug/Ground, or better yet, Bug/Dragon, now that would have made for a really interesting type combo. It was also kinda fun to see TR's Diglett make an appearance for the first time since the Sowpoke well. It's really weird not having Oak's lectures any more, I was expecting it to come on after the preview of the next episode.XD

    Actually, they could always get Fire Blast - via TM 38 in RBY, for starters.
  17. Muchos gracias for the info. Though now I'm wondering why a forest-dweller like Ziggy would venture out to a desert, of all places.

    Wait a minute...Vibrava with Supersonic?!?!?! I know they can Screech, and that they cause sonic blasts by vibrating their wings(probably how they cause Earthquakes and Rock Slides; by directing those blasts at the ground)...I guess the writers figured that the Vibrava should be able to pull off Supersonic through wing vibration as well(like Yanma).

    I wonder, then, what a shipping between Ash and that same woman would be called...(shrugs) Oh well.

    SatoTraping perhaps? >_> *shot*

    Yeah, I found it odd that Vibrava used Supersonic out of nowehere when the darn thing can't even learn the attack. o_O

    Crazy. Truthfully, I had thought it could get the attack from somewhere, but I do believe I was confusing it with Screech. Could they [the writers] have gotten confused too? Bleh, this gets me worried about later on when the episode gets dubbed, for it may be mistaken as Screech. While at its core the attack is wrong, it should still be concluded as wrong through any version it may pass :)

    He/she was referring to Fire Spin, which it used in that episode before it could get it in the games. The writer fo the post must have remembered wrong or wrote wrong.

    Anyway, it is most odd that Supersonic was used. Contrary to what Big Al said, it is EXTREMELY rare for the anime to have a Pokemon use an attack they can't learn at all in the games (beyond the basic Tackle of course). About the only exceptions I can recall are the Kanto Raticate's Jump Kick, and Brock's Golbat using Sonicboom in one episode.

    I'm not bothered by it though, as these Pokemon rightfully should be able to learn those moves, they fit them well enough after all. ^_^
