• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

This was an interesting episode. I like the old Pokeball type things and how humans got sucked into them too. And the giant Jigglypuff's song was freaky. LOL

Go Alakazam! I mean go Jigglypuff, the peacemaker, yeah...

This was an interesting episode, much different from the usual. What were those things Alakazam was making?

Dunno what else to say...7.5/10


Izit cuz I is black?
My favourite pre-league filler. I love the originality of it. YAY, a Jigglypuff episode where it actually HELPS!


I love this episode so much..I think this would rank up there with the best..
I would love to catch that Alakazam and be it's trainer..I would so take care of it and that would make me the strongest ever.

Like "Sparks Fly for Magnemite", "The School of Hard Knocks", and "Make Room for Gloom", this is one of those first season episodes that I really don't like. I don't hate it as much as the other episodes, but I don't know, I just don't like episodes where characters are in dark peril. I do like the giant Jigglypuff :D , but that's the only real thing I like about the episode. Oh yeah, and I like the part when the French lady quickly thanks the twerps for their help then ignores them.


When I first saw this episode I was like 5 so I got scared half to death... ^_^
Now it's one of my favorite episodes.


This is also one of my favorites. Before the days of massive blocks of fillers, I thought episodes like this were cool. And the original ideas still are.

At first I didn't care for this episode very much, but it's grown on me a lot over the years. Though the concept of giant pokémon was nothing new, the way it was done was certainly original, with the ancient legends and such. I thought the giant Purin was pretty funny, and it was hilarious when Gengar absorbed Takeshi's Iwaaku and it shows everyone inside being thrown around.

This episode also had some nice music. There were several pieces that were heard for the first time in this ep, and they really helped to give it an epic vibe.

Indigo League BMG for the only time and Ash had to say something stupid and ruin the moment (and stop the music).

They have occasianally used that piece since then, but I'm not sure if it was ever heard in the dub version again.

It wasn't it was cut whereever it was heard. Release subtitled DVD's you b*stards.

Umm...I never saw this episode. I assume it's on DVD, right? And why doesn't the main site have pictures for it yet? It showed a long time ago!

Serebii doesn't have pics for almost all the Kanto episodes. :p

I like this episode. Giant Jigglypuff was hilarious when it was drawing on Alakazam and Gengar's faces, even though they already have markings on them. XD

I loved this episode. All the episodes that falled into the "ancient" cattegory (Prehistoric Pokemon, etc.) really interest me.


Oh, this episode was excellent. The first episode of Alakazam's and he was a featured pokemon! He was astounding. You also don't see that Jiggypuff type gag anymore with the advanced saga. It was priceless.

Meh i didnt really like this episode much. Jigglypuff probably saved this episode imo. Anyway the story was good but they kinda rushed it.


Ash fan girl! Cute!
This is one of my favorite episodes from season one, I haven't seen it for such a long time though, I miss it =[
One of my favorite moments is when Team Rocket gets sucked into the Pokemon and just talk as if its a normal thing to other people in there LOL.
