The Evolution Solution (068)


Dark Magic

Underwhelming and the comedy is half decent, I wasn't a fan of the Psyduck/Slowbro stuff.

Don't you think that it's a weird concept in the anime for Slowpoke evolving with the bite of a shelder on the tail or even the head? In the games its leveling up. What if it happened like this in the games too? that would be weird.

yah thats wierd how in the game, it is diff from the eps. Meh, i wasnt really a fan of orange islands episodes.

A good episode, I love slowpoke and it's evolutions so this was a good episode. I like that they devoted a entire episode to the Slowpoke evolution into Slowbro, this is the first mention of using another Pokemon to help and Pokemon evolve a concept we won't see anything like that in the games until 4th gen with needing a Remoraid to help evolve your Mantyke into a Mantine, i'm surprised that the developers haven't added that for Slowpoke to evolve into Slowbro. Lastly i'd love to see Psybro in the anime and games.


Don't die, ketchup!
I really didn't like this episode that much. I was kind of bored when watching it.
Is it merely coincidence that Shellder clamped onto Psyduck's head in this episode, and a few years later Game Freak designed a Slowpoke evolution that is the result of Shellder clamping onto Slowpoke's head? Anytime I watch/remember this episode now, after Ash's Psybro joke, I think about a Psyking!


kiss my greens
Oh, I remember this one!

My favorite part of the episode was that Westwood guy showing Ash & co. pics of him and his ancestors... and they all looked the same, except for his great-great grandfather (Westwood I), who was kinda handsome actually... and he told Ash& them that it was a picture of him XDDD Then he bowed to them, begging forgiveness for his stupidity, and always forgot that the best-looking pic was him, apparently. XD

That's seriously all I remember from this episode. I forgot entirely about Jessie & that Shellder. Wonder where we'd be with it today if she'd kept it?

How gutted must Team Rocket have been, they manage to catch a pokemon and it would rather evolve a Slowpoke than stay with them.


This episode is very informative because it reveals how Slowpoke's evolution works. In the game it's different because it evolves in Level 37 without a Shellder biting its tail. In the anime, a Slowpoke evolves when a Shellder bites to its tail. I really don't get it as I've always thought whatever goes in the games, it happens in the anime. Well, some events from games happen in any particular episode.

I didn't understand how slowbro was effected buy it's own move amnesia and didn't remember how to use mega punch?


I loved this episode. i like the evolution of Slowpoke, it's great.

And Slowbro was strong.
