    Growling Ice Punch! Buizel VS Mr. Mime!!

    While training his Gible's Draco Meteor, Ash & Co. encounter a trainer and his Mr. Mime. The trainer quickly challenges Ash to a battle to prove his strength, specifically a battle against Ash's Buizel. Ash quickly accepts. However, after losing the battle, Ash & Buizel decide to start training to learn the move Ice Punch. Will Ash & Buizel succeed in the training and win a rematch?

    Missed the starting half, but...

    - Mr. Mime trainer rubs me the wrong way.
    - Apparently Buizel was able to start off his punch training rather easily.
    - It was pretty boss in this episode.
    - Training with leaves.
    - Ice Paunch-getto!
    - Rematch time; dodging the Thunderpunch like a player.
    - RAIN HAX; Swift Swim initiate!
    - Victor: Buizel

    First time watching since the Holidays. ROLL BATTLE.

    Trainer's Mr. Mime:
    - Double Team (*Sigh ...*)
    - Thunder Punch
    - Ice Punch
    - Psychic

    Buizel
    - Ice Punch

    V Faction's summary was better then mine's and it makes me feel sad.

    Should have known the Thunderstorm was for Swift Swim, though. Made him ridiculously fast this time.

    I should have felt excited for this episode but I really didn't enjoy it. Maybe it was because it was very similar to the Gliscor Training / Release episode we've had a few weeks earlier.

    Good, Buizel won the rematch and finaly Ash got a win.

    Gible is still training on his Draco Meteor, Buizel used the ability "Swift Swim"

    Damn, those suspicious clouds in the sky...who would have thought that Buizel´s ability becomes a plot point in this episode again?
    Makes you wonder why Satoshi doesn´t think of teachin Buizel Rain Dance...
    I guess he forgot that the attack existed.

    The episode was....alright. I liked Gible in the beginning and the battle in the end...but the training was boresome and besides the training and the 2 matches...nothing really happended. It was to be expected, I guess.


    The ending scared the **** out of me. CRAZY animation for the ending. Who animated it? The characters looked so...real.

    lol, Gible drowning in the river because it ate the platform where it was was funny.

    Mr. Mime - for a 'barrier pokemon' not much defensive, was he? No defensive move - that surprised me a bit, really.

    I do hope Ash realises the benefit of swift swim, and decides to teach Buizel rain-dance. That would be so cool, and Pika can get an accuracy boost for its Thunder too - not that Anime makes references to accuracy much.......but still.

    I expected Mr. Mime to have used defensive moves, but it was too offensive for my taste. It's trainer must have trained it using different methods :/

    Glad Buizel learned a new move though, it was almost like the Gliscor episode except that...

    Buizel wasn't released which was fabulous.

    Locormus Can we please get the old forum back?

    This episode, was meh and win.. Torn much? Sady.. yes, I am.. xD

    - The episode starts of with Ash training Gible
    - Ash says something along the lines of: Your a dragon type, fire DM!
    - Gible fails
    - Piplup gets struck down while swimming, and sinks like an anchor..
    - Hikari scolds Ash about this now overused gag, it isn't funny anymore..
    - Ash wants to scold Gible, who's eating the rock on which it was standing..
    - Rock doesn't exist anymore.. so Gible hasn't got footing..
    - The Shark falls into the water! Where's the Jaws theme??
    - Buizel gets send out, and is happy about!
    - Buizel saves Gible, who's still munching down in Sandshrews' locker..
    - Two mysterious figures jump out of a waterfall, que epic music!
    - It's a fighter and a mime.. what a duo!
    - Obvious introductions, but this fighter seems to confuse Brock and Dawn a lot xD
    - He wants to fight Ash because Buizel was SUCH a hero!.. yup..
    - Battle starts:
    ----Aqua Jet -> Psychic = Buizel slammed against a tree
    ----Sonic Boom -> Double team = Mr. Mine not getting hit and jumping in the air
    ----Aqua Jet -> Thunder Punch = Knock out for Buizel..
    - What a dumb battle..
    - We see the gang at the fighter's house.. talking about punches and stuff
    - Is this guy saying something that Buizel can learn Ice Punch??
    - Ash starts the waterfall punching along with Buizel..
    - Fighter punches the waterfall and something shines.. Ash's reaction :eek:
    - Ash and Buizel are punching while jogging, Buizel punches bushes in the mean time..
    - Ash notices this.
    - Dinner time!!! But of course Buizel and Ash can't eat.. they want to train!
    - Ash looks at the full moon and turns into Darkrai.. no not really.. but would've been cool.. *it actually looks like a frozen Water pulls, if you look at it with a weird angle.. a hint perhaps?
    - Ash starts blowing leaves at Buizel so he can freeze them.. to little success..
    - It's a new day, and Ash rechallenges the fighter..
    - It's stormy, oh gosh, is this a plot point??
    - Team Rocket runs up to Ash, ready to fight, but get hit by lightning crashing down
    - Oh my.. it was a plot point!
    - The battle starts:
    ----Aqua Jet -> Psychic = Buizel gets slammed to the same tree again, but somehow doesn't crash, because he expected this much..
    ----Sonic Boom -> Double Team = nothing happens well this much looks kinda the same.. BORING!
    ----Punching time! Ice Punch vs Thunder Punch! = Buizel loses the punchout!
    - It looks as if Buizel's rubber sack cancelled out some of the electricity..
    ----OHH NOEZ IT'S STARTING TO RAIN, Buizel and Ash eye contact! It's going to go down!
    ----Buizel slipstreams towards the Mime
    - Shocked fighter expression: GOSH IT'S MIGHTY FAST ALL OF A SUDDEN!
    ----Ice Punch vs Thunder Punch = Buizel evades the Mime due to speed (Looks epic btw) and hits the Mime! then standoff faces.. and half the Mime's belly freezes.. KNOCKING IT OUT ! This mime has no defences what so ever! That's one attack that took it down.. geesh..

    - Everybody dances in the rain and are happy..
    - The fighter starts into a speech.. God no! Buizel isn't going to get released here is he???
    - Thankfully Buizel stays on the team.. I broke out a sweat there.. phew.. I can breath again..
    - They part ways with the fighter, but somehow... Ash has whiskers like Buizel :eek:

    It was a pretty good episode, but a lot like the Gliscor one, but in this one, Ash felt how Buizel felt a lot sooner then with Gliscor.. Both eps involved staring at the moon as well..
    Buizel wasn't as strong as Mr. Mime.. so it's weird why it won. *Mr. Mime froze a small waterfall with it's Ice Punch, while Buizel could only freeze half of Mr. Mime's belly..

    The music on the other hand, was pretty epic throughout the episode

    -^- You, my friend, need to write episode summaries more often. I was laughing half the time....:)

    Buizel won by using Swift Swim again...

    Ash teach the bloody thing how to use Rain Dance...now.

    Rain Dance probably would give it a competitive edge, but I don't see Buizel winning with that and Swift Swim, even if they gave it Rain Dance. The writers like to make Ash's team weaker as time goes on.

    Hopefully Ash will let Buizel learn Rain Dance next.

    The Pokemon doesn't actually dance.....does it?

    So do I. I think it's a good strategy overall, but maybe not something I'd enjoy seeing.
