Rough, Tough Jigglypuff (415)

Ohhh, this filler's Jiggypuff wasn't like the other Jiggypuff from earlier seasons: this one was more powerful and stubborn. I loved the music notes. And when Mitch had to chase it, it was impossible, even Pikachu couldn't beat it.


I was a bit disappointed at first that this wasn't about our old pal Jigglypuff, but it turned out to be a lot better because of that. It was of course predictable that the Jigglypuff would end up with the dude's daughter, but I did like the idea of using Jigglypuff's song against itself, and that Pokemon characteristics came into play. :)


It was really nice to see a Purin that wasn't the same one that used to follow Satoshi and his friends before. Mitsuo's dedication to obtain the Purin for his daughter was heartwarming, and his methods for trapping the wild Purin reminded me of the Rocket-dan's traps. At least Lisa got her birthday wish when the Purin showed up at her house.


I call you honey
I love how Jigglypuff's singing had CGI music notes. It was funny when Jigglypuff finally woke up still in the soundproof room, to find that everyone was gone so suddenly in the end.


Looking back, I felt that Mitsuo's trap for Purin was completely valid, so he had no reason to just abandon his plan simply for ethical reasons just because Purin was asleep and defenseless.
Nice episode. Mitch Mitchum (is he related to Ash?) and his relationship with his daugther is so sweet. Happy that the Jigglypuff that appeared in this episode wasn't the Jigglypuff.
