    Slaking Kong!

    On their way to the Grand Festival at the Indigo Plateau, Ash & Co. come across a large group of Aipom, however the mischievous Aipom steal Ash's Hat and May's Ribbon Case and run off. However when they track down the Aipom, it turns out they worship a Giant Slaking who soon appears and kidnaps May. Can Ash & Co. rescue May from the Giant Slaking and get the Hat and Ribbon Case back in time for May to participate in the Grand Festival?

  2. Wow, looks like a good filler. I wonder if the aipom is going to follow or is one of the characters going to catch it?

    aipom will have an important roll here, I think. Maybe it will be caught by one of the main characters or it may follow them, like jigglypuff did..

    People, please remember the rules of these discussions...please dont post until you've seen the ep, read the guide or seen the pictures. And Please don't post apologising either
  5. Sorry to all of you believers but...

    Ash did not catch Aipom., Neither did Brock or May.

    So sad...really but funny for a filler.

    The Great Butler Hush, keep it down

    Dang. So I was wrong about Slaking Kong being Ash's Frontier capture/Pyramid trump card too, then. I hope there was some kind of backstory to this.....

    Aipom returns after the GF though, so it's only a semi-filler. In any case, the King Kong parody had me interested since the getgo.

    The giant Slaking was merely a robot Team Rocket made to get food/sacrifices from the ape Pokémon, Aipom, Mankey, Vigoroth and regular Slaking respectively.

    Ash gave up his beloved hat since the Aipom liked it so much, but go it back at the end of the episode plus a piece of fruit and a pink flower. Awwww~

    When May fell, Ash sent out his Sceptile to save her.

    For the Ash fangirls - Ash was hatless practically the entire episode except for a total of a few minutes from the start and the end.

    Seen the pics.

    I'm really impressed how real the robot Slaking looked...but the "real" average Slaking's looked a bit too small, I'm a little disapointed with that.

    Nice filler, I really like the monkey Pokemon.

    It does look like Aipom is following the group, so hopefully Ash wil get it.

    Ooh, that was cool. =D Swellow-fighter-plane = awesome.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. They looked really tiny compared to the Normal Gym battle. They were only just bigger than the Vigoroth. 0o

    Anyway I liked the screens, I can't wait to watch the episode and use footage from it for another fake trailer (GUESS which film trailer will be the audio). Oh and the Aipom in this episode is cool, I feel somewhat disapointed it wasn't caught but I wasn't expecting it to be.

    That screenie of Pikachu Volt Tackling Cacnea is pretty cool. Interesting the Slaking turned out to be a Mecha.

    I'm not sure that I'm relieved about that or disappointed.

    We can not only add King Kongo to the "Spoofed by Pokemon" list but also Scooby Doo. This screamed Scooby Doo rip off. Even the old man telling the story and then the mech to seal the deal.

    And they would have got away with it too if it wasn't for those meddling kids

    Na, if it was Scooby Doo like then it would have been the old man controlling the Slaking

    Though this is Pokemon. It doesn't have to be perect but it's still a ripoff.

    Seem the ep pics. Always a gd viewing!

    Ash and Aipom looked 2 make a gd team when at the cliff base by the river.
    And the open ending of Aipom showing effection 2 Ash screams a possible "Follower" Pokemon like Jigglypuff or Snubble. However hopefully It will met up with Ash latter down the road and decided 2 join his team unlike the pass "follower" pokemon who just seemed 2 endlessy follow the mian characters, become very annoying them disappear.

    I can see this Aipom following Ash 2 the end of the BF then get capture by him and become a strong team member with possible new evo in the D/P land.

    Jessie really crossed the line this time by mocking May with her stolen ribbon case.

    But Scooby-Doo? Not this time, Gadget!

    I'm getting a little bored with Pokemon's animation. Yeah, I know what you're thinking guys, "Getting bored? Where have you been?" But it's high time they started to step up to the plate. Why do we have to put up with only one or two episodes with great animation? Let's see that the whole way through. Weekly basis or not, there's more to animation than walking, running, and mouth flaps. Heck, the gang must suffer from the worst case of pit sweat ever seen.

    Next week's preview wasn't spectacular either. Things are so cut and dry.
  20. Not forgetting the whole Mask Feasco, revealing that the old man is not the old man, but is a ****** off Harley!

    But meh, this is a Ok looking filler. Aipom looks like it is following the group(and makes me want to use one in my team now, it looks so sweet! ^_^)
