Ok I admit it, the Spoink was really cute. Ash and friends saw it without it's pearl and they worried. I liked Torkoal's reaction to it without a pearl a lot since it started crying haha. As Ash and friends helped look for it's missing pearl, we got tons of funny moments like Spoink thinking Igglybuff, Voltorb, then Electrode was it's pearl haha. The shape matched anyway. After the Team Rocket fight, Team Rocket was able to blast off with the pearl that Ash and the others finally found. It was funny since they imagined Giovanni with it on his ring. We got to see the Magikarp Salesman up to his old tricks again by selling James a fake Feebas which was funny. Ash and friends managed to get the pearl back for Spoink, which was neat. This episode was funny to the max, 9/10.
