  • Well, its not the worst episode ever.

    5.5
    This episode has only a few funny moments, and a lot of dull, listless ones. The whole episode is spent looking for a wild spoinks pearl. Team rocket steals the pearl, and ends up trading it to... Surprise! The Magikarp salesman. He offers them a feebas for it that is really a magikarp in disguise. And from there, the rest of the episode is spent chasing the magikarp salesman to get the pearl back.



    The episode really was not that enjoyable. I found it a little strange that Ash and co. would spend a whole day looking for a pearl for a wild pokemon. The only enjoyable moments were when spoink mistook everything for his pearl. Overall, not one of the best.moreless
