What would have been nice was Spoink could have been Max's and Clamperl May's. But I guess I'm thinking too far into my butt.
Well at least it made lots of logical sense that Clamperl had a spare pearl for Spoink, which isn't as bad as some of the other highly convenient scenarios that we've seen in the anime. ^^;I didn't like Spoink much because to me him losing his pearl wasn't interesting and Clamperl was just there as a convenient plot device. 4/10
This episode didn't focus on Pearlulu's branch evolution because there was already an upcoming episode about Sakurabyss and Huntail in production.Since this was a Clamperl episode, I was half expecting to see Huntail and Gorebyss show up. But I guess Spoink's dilemma was more crucial.
Hmmm well Spoink was cute and funny, but since he wasn't caught the first time he showed up, I didn't think his chances of ending up being caught here were big any ways. He was simply a recurring Pokemon.What a shame that Ash didn't catch Spoink though. I mean we all saw how Torkoal was his buddy, so why didn't Ash just catch Spoink to keep those two together?
Even though Satoshi's Cotoise was the wild Baneboo's friend, it wasn't Satoshi's responsibility to appease him. Besides, Baneboo didn't seem to want to join Satoshi's group anyway. He just wanted help getting his lost pearl back.What a shame that Ash didn't catch Spoink though. I mean we all saw how Torkoal was his buddy, so why didn't Ash just catch Spoink to keep those two together?
I felt the same way regarding Baneboo's lost pearl routine in the beginning, although I did cheer up when the plot moved forward and began to involve that Pearlulu. That plot twist was actually pretty clever.This was a cool episode. At first I found having Spoink lose its pearl again and put random things on its head a bit repetitive as we have had that before but the episode got more interesting as it progressed and Team Rocket had some good scenes in this episode.
