Taming of the Shroomish! (285)

650 seems to be giving really low reviews. It's not even proportioned. :( 14/100 is less than a 50%! :O

Really enjoyed this episode as I always like mystery-type episodes where they look for something. Plus, Shroomish is irresistible.

7/10

The first filler in the Hoenn saga, it was a lil bit entertaining, It was great to see Brock & May and Ash & Max doing things on their own, I find the chesmistry between then really nice! 8/10

Stupid episode. Really now. Stupid. Shroomish is such a boring Pokemon and this episode made it so much more evident than it was before. The best of this episode was seeing May and Brock shop around. That's it really.

This episode was really alright. I didn't dislike anything in this episode, nor did I find anything exceptional good. But I did like this filler more than the average filler episodes in Johto. And Shroomish was introduced alright. Hence, this whole episode could just be defined by "Alright".
 
I didn't really hate or like this episode, it's the typical generic filler. I prefer the OS fillers (yes, also Jotho) over this, but this was alright. 7threst has a similar opinion on this episode as I have, the difference is that I prefer Jotho and that he prefers this. There's not much to say about this episode. 6/10.

Yeah, I think I may be a bit wrong on this too. I think I like these beginner filler episodes the most because it feels a little refreshing, but afterwards, I gets less and less and even below Johto standards. Just want to correct myself quick there!

Well, keep in mind that I really like the Jotho fillers. When something is below Jotho filler standards in my opinion, I can still think it's good.

Dull filler episode. Shroomish don't interest me in the slightest and the plot of this episode was so boring. I'd rather watch OS fillers than this to be honest. Seeing Brock & May shopping together was really awkward, Ash should have gone with Brock instead. Lastly, Team Rocket suffered way too much, it was just ridic.

Team Rocket foreshadows Foongus and Amoongus in this episode. "I think there's a fungus. And they're among us." It floored me when I heard them say this.
 
I actually think this was a very nice episode: the COTD's backstory was actually pretty interesting, Ash and Max had a cool dynamic going with each other helping out that Shroomish in the streets, while finally Brock was frightened to death of going to the Mansion but May dragged him along-- I thought that was hilarious, actually.

Team Rocket was actually alright as well, so that was nice.

9.5/10
 
Brock was such a wuss towards the haunted mansion in this episode!
I don't mean that in mean way, though, more a "oh god it was funny how..." way. :)
I always saw him as a more brave one in those situations.

Best episode I have seen for a while. I was interested in the plot and it was cool to see Torchic finally have time to shine with its Ember attack. I am glad things turned out well for the Shroomish!

Only liked the Shroomish plot with this episode. Kinda interested in the haunted mansion for a while and realised that the noises were Shroomish even though I first thought it was Duskull. At least things went out for Shroomish in the end :).

Wow Shroomish isn't my favourite pokemon or anything but I was expecting so much more here. I guess the mansion setting was interesting however as was Team rocket's blast off scene.

Meh this was a bad filler, but at least I enjoyed the Shroomish a bit. I kind of wanted Max or someone else to catch one lol.

AG had been practically devoid of filler until this one premiered which is a shame. I wish Shroomish had had a better debut episode plot. 4/10
