Very interesting the way they tied Clampearl's to Spoinks and their Pearls. I really enjoyed this episode, Spionk is the Hoenn version of Jigglypuff and Snubbull, to bad they didn't have more episodes with it it was funny to see it take other pokemon mistaking them for its pearl and seeing Team Rocket equally have problems with opening Clampearl was hilarious.
Spoink wouldn't have been a bad addition to any cast memeber's team, now that you mention it. It was an interesting enough pokémon with some decent moves and a nice gimmick. And I personally feel that Spoink n' Grumpig never really got the spotlight they truely deserved, sooooo~....
I have no opinion on the animation; to me, all Hoenn animation was pretty much the same all around. Too bright, or was that dub-added? Anyway, I was displeased to see that weird little Spoink again. Having it around again was like having Jigglypuff's random appearances all over again. Clamperl was cute though since it's my favorite Hoenn Water-type. Not much to discuss about this episode, but I'm glad we got rid of Spoink once and for all. 4/10.
This episode was ok... It was cool to see Clampearl for the 1st time. Clampearl is really cool! It was cool to see the Spoink again, it definitely keeps losing things all of the time. It was funny when Jessie kept trying to open Clampearl's shell herself. It was odd to see Torkoal jump into the sea for Spoink's pearl.
**** yeah, another Spoink episode and once again it's the only thing that made an episode of Pokemon bearable. It was too adorable here with it trying to replace its missing pearl with different Pokemon.
A alright start for Advanced Battle ( which I loved because of the abundance of humor it has) Was great to see Spoink again and its unfortunate didn't see it again, but he was hilarious for what it was and I think they mixed his small-running gag along with the introduction of a new Pokémon quite splendidly.
