Episode Summary

On the way to Solaceon Town, Ash and friends arrive at the site of an unfinished bridge. They meet the builder, Isis, as well as the engineer, and the nearby town mayor. The bridge needs to be completed in three days, but the pokémon that cuts the stone, Bibarel, is not working. No matter what they try it just lounges around. Brock decides to help Isis, but because Bibarel won't work, they can't get the right size of brick. The engineer then returns to the site and decides to use force to get Bibarel to work.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Ash and the gang tries to make a Bibarel to work, but no matter what they do, Bibarel does not want to work!

    Hmm, well this was another good episode but just above average. The plot of this episode is that Ash and gang try to help this girl Isis who happens to be a Pokemon Breeder to complete the construction of this bridge in three days. The main worker, Bibarel just won't work due to certain reasons...... This episode is also like a Brock development episode because he tries to help Isis to get rocks to build the bridge and the fact he gives his special Pokemon food to the workers as well. The Bibarel Pokemon is a good addition to this episode. I would still recommend this episode to people to watch as it is quite a good watch, but to me it's just an above average episode. I give it a 7.5 rating.moreless
  • I really enjoyed this one for some reason!

    This was a grea t episode, in which the heroes discover that there is an unfinished bridge preventing them from crossing on and continuing on to Solaceon Town. The whole episode is about working to get this bridge constructed and continuing on. Unfortunately, there is an uncooperative Bibarel, who will not help until his master returns.

    The girl, Isis, was interesting, as I haven't seen Brock fall in love since I started watching! I missed seeing that kind of scene!

    We also saw a lot of cool Pokemon in this episode, including Aggron, Magmar, Rhydon, Metang and even Machoek and Machamp. Bibarel, of course, was also quite tough and very resilient!

    All up, hthis was a very enjoyable episode. Team Rocket's scheem was funny - building a castle for The Boss, Giovanni. I liked that idea! Keep it up, guys!moreless
