    Fish the Golden Magikarp!

    Ash & Co. have arrived at Ambrette Town and decide to head towards the special aquarium, where many Water-type Pokémon have been collected from around the world. Meeting the curator and his Clauncher, Ash & co. learn that he is hunting for a special shiny Magikarp. Ash & co. decide to help him find the special Magikarp, with Clemont creating a special machine to help. However, things aren't as easy as they seem. Will Ash & Co. manage to help him find the Magikarp?

    playerking Sick of dealing with idiots.

    The episode starts with Serena running along a hill, with the others behind her, until they stop and see Ambrette town, in front of them.

    They then arrive on the beach of Ambrette town and Ash brings out Froakie.

    Pikachu, Froakie , Bonnie and Dedenne are playing in the ocean.

    As h and co. then enter the town's aquarium and speak to the woman at the main desk.

    Bonnie asks the woman if she will marry Clemont, but Clemont uses his Aipom arm and drags her away.

    Ash and co. then walk through the aquarium and enjoy the sights of the water Pokemon.

    A Stunfisk camouflages itself on the sea floor, but then reveals itself, much to Ash's enjoyment.

    There is now a group of Wooper.

    Two Piplup are walking through a door and one says hello to Serena.

    3 Piplup then jump into an outside pool.

    Ash is happy to see a bunch of Magikarp's and then a man with a Chatot on his shoulder comes over and talks to them.

    He then tells them about a man who is trying to catch a Golden Magikarp.

    Team Rocket are following behind Ash and co. and are in some disguises.

    The man who is trying to get the Shiny Magikarp, isn't having much luck and now Ash and co. have caught up to him.

    The man, Louden, is on a rock fishing with his Clauncher nearby.

    Louden then tells Ash and co. a story about himself, when he was younger, at least, I think it's about him.

    Team Rocket show up again in their Magikarp submarine, underwater.

    Ash and co. are now trying to help Louden get the Shiny Magikarp as well.

    Bonnie tries to say hello to Louden's Clauncher.

    Dare Da? Clauncher.

    Serena hooks something on her line and Ash and Clemont come over to help pull it in.

    Serena hooks a Corsola, which she tries to battle with her Fennekin.

    Bonnie is talking to Clauncher again and Dedenne is trying to play with Clauncher, but Clauncher gets annoyed.

    Clauncher traps Dedenne's tail on the ground and then Dedenne zaps Clauncher, which Bonnie gets angry at.

    Team Rocket have, or are in the middle of building a big, golden Magikarp machine.

    Clemont is now telling the others about his new invention, which attracts Magikarp to the it. It looks like a Chincou.

    A Sharpedo comes out of the water and tries to attack Ash and Serena.

    Team Rocket are in their submarine in the water and are attacked by what appears to be, the same Starmie from Louden's story, with an electric attack.

    Ash and co. have all hooked something big, which is actually the fake, shiny Magikarp that Team Rocket built.

    Team Rocket pop out of the top and recite their motto.

    Jessie then gets angry for some reason.

    Team Rocket go back into their machine and try to grab the groups Pokemon on the beach, like Clauncher and Dedenne.

    Dedenne gets captured, but Clauncher stops it.

    Team Rocket brings out their Pokemon.

    Pumpkaboo uses Shadow Ball and Inkay uses Psywave I think.

    Clauncher attacks the two Pokemon, before Ash finishes Team Rocket off with Pikachu's Thunderbolt.

    As the sun sets, Ash and co. are still trying to catch the golden Magikarp and something happens that makes Louden happy. I think he saw it and/or captured it.

    Ash and co. then walk off after saying goodbye.

    To be continued.

    So the episode starts with the gang arriving in Ambrette Town heading to the beach, playing in the sea.
    Serena looks on her device and is adamant to go the aquarium. The golden Magikarp is on the screen. Apparently Ash is the focus in today's episode.
    They walk about the aquarium and see a plethora of water types swimming around them (and Stunfisk >grr )
    Apparently, Ash uses his pokedex on mere Magikarp.
    The owner of the aquarium appears with a Chatot on his shoulder.
    The owner tells them about the Gold Magikarp and that others are trying to catch it.
    It turns out, a mere fisherman owns my beloved Clauncher and Clemont (love the guy) recognizes it instantly.
    While Pikachu interacts with Clauncher, TR is in yet ANOTHER Magikarp submarine.
    The fisherman hooks a simple Magikarp and the gang all attempt to get one as well. Ash shows Serena the ropes how to fish.
    Bonnie tries to interact with the Clauncher, fails.
    Dare da? Clauncher.
    Serena battles a Corsola and fails to attack it.
    Clauncher gets a hold of Dedenne's tail and blasts it away. This Clauncher has a bit of an attitude. Oh boy!!! Hopes are being fueled.
    Apparently TR has the "bright" idea of making their sub golden.
    Clemont makes a device shaped like a Chinchou (good taste) to look for the Magikarp.
    SHARPEDO!!! They blow apart the device.
    TR gets shocked by a Starmie underwater.
    Clemont is undeterred and makes ANOTHER device based on Lanturn. Love his tenacity.
    Now everyone's lines are caught on TR's sub. You expect them to pull up something THAT heavy? I don't believe it.
    TR comes out and they do their motto.
    Clauncher dodges their claws and totally shows them what for.
    My mon Clauncher totally defeats them with Pikachu's help.
    NOO the Clauncher stays with the fisherman!! Filler, ugh.
    Oh well... something that awesome couldn't possibly fit with the team anyway...
    hopes smashed to pieces...

    Stunfisk and Piplup? Never thought we will be seeing wild ones.
  5. Locormus

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    Inb4 Serena + Piplup or DP remakes!

    Do you we could officially call Serena and Fennekin's battle with Corsola as their first unofficial battle?
  9. Gamzee Makara

    Gamzee Makara Let people enjoy things...

    Piplup are looking a lot better...

    As for Clauncher...I must raise one of them now...Was the combination of Mega Launcher+Water Pulse shown? And did Misty's special lure appear on Ash's rod? (I had to duck out of those and the end scenes to quiet my cat...but I did see Clauncher)

    Overall:Still a filler, but Clauncher is a a Thriller.

    This also takes care of the obligatory fishing mechanics advertisement eppy. I'm looking forward to Skrelp and Dragalge at this rate.(With the icy dinosaurs in an out-of-place taiga-like forest in-between two beaches story before that)

    Filler episode in its purest definition, the entire aquarium scene is padding for the episode before the plot kicks in.

    -Return of the Magikarp Submarine (Gold edition)
    -Serena trying to catch Corsola, and Fennekin's consistent characterization as a neat freak. Surely, this would be addressed later, aww yeah she's gonna git down and dirty.
    -Tsundere Clauncher
    -Ash referencing indirectly Dawn's Piplup. The Piplup themselves feel so strange to me, like they're actual little penguins.
    -Ash teaching Serena how to cast her fishing line among other fishing-related minutiae.

    And it seems Starmies with Thunderbolts will be the Beedrills of the seas.

    Complaints would be the writers having Ash scan Magikarp when Serena is perfectly able of doing so, for christ sakes. No Misty Lure this episode, if I recall correctly, since Serena hasn't spilled spaghetti like the BP Oil Spill.

    Not really, that would probably be against Pumpkaboo.

    What attack did Serena command if she did command an attack??
  12. SerenaForTheWin

    SerenaForTheWin Yusarin >_<

    the upside down characterization is here - and the little star serena is about to shine bit by bit.
  13. Mr.Munchlax

    Looks like Ash remembers a few tips and pointers from Fishing Connoisseur Cilan

    Heh? I don't get it (I mean I know about the BP Oil spill, but I don't get the reference/comparison)
  14. Eievui-Nymphia

    Eievui-Nymphia XY, gen of dreams.

    I'm in a hiatus (forced in a way) but because this is brought up:

    -The Piplup group doesn't appear to be wild. I don't know yet if Ash references soimething here directly or indirectly about Dawn's Piplup.
  15. Blue Saturday

    Blue Saturday too fly

    Cute scene, sweet little piece of continuity as well.

    Pochama looked very cute, the art style seemed to have made the species a bit more rounder though in a nice way.

    You see, every time Serena becomes nervous or concerned about something regarding Ash, she boils spaghetti in her pockets, not that terrible kind your mother cooks, but al dente ones from five star restaurants, and she can't help but spill it all over herself every time. The Misty Lure, a keepsake from a girl Ash knows, would've fed thousands of people from the sheer multitude of spaghetti Serena would spill at the sight of it, Serena would've been like Jesus there but I digress.
  17. Locormus

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    If Ash were to tell Serena that he still keeps that trinket from the time he traveled with his good (lady) friend Misty, she would supposedly "spill spaghetti"/freak out of pure jealousy.. A very weird comparison though..

    So we have a reference to DP! Good to have! :D

    p96822 Evolve me please
