Episode Summary

Sweet Baby James
On the way to the Battle Arena, both James' Chimecho and May's Munchlax fall sick. They bring them to James' old summer mansion where they are attended to by James' Nanny and Pop-Pop. Because he does not want them to know that he joined an evil organization like Team Rocket, James has everyone play along with him when he says he is the leader of a major business. Meanwhile, even though they promised James they would stay out of trouble, Jessie and Meowth decide to steal all the Pokémon in the garden as well as Nanny and Pop-Pop's friend Mime Jr.moreless

  • Goodbye Beloved Chimecho!

    This is one of the best episodes of the show! I was so sad that Chimecho has to leave since Chimecho is one of my favorite Pokemon ever. However, we had lots of good memories with Chimecho. I was finally glad to see Mime Jr., one of my favorite new pokémon and it's voice is so cute. This episode was really fun to watch, I love all the weird scenes between Ash and friends, and James. My favorite part was when James told Cacnea to attack Seviper and seeing Cacnea's reaction. Overall, a great episode. We see a brand new pokémon and the plot is great. The only bad part - Chimecho leaving.moreless
  • James had to leave behind Chimeco as it was sick. But he he got a new pokemon and that is mime jr. mime jr ownself tapped the enlarge pokeball and was brought in it. Maybe it wanted to follow James.moreless

    It's so sad that James have to bid goodbye to Chimeco.. Just because Chimeco can't recover on time and James have to leave. After all the flashbacks. He still thinks that leaving Chimeco to the care of Nanny and Pop-Pop is better. When he took out Chimeco's pokeball a few others drop. One enlarged and mime jr tapped it and brought itself in. At least now James has a new buddy. The part where he waves goodbye in tears with Chimeco was really touching.. A sad and touching episode. *thumbs up*

    Actually James isn't that bad. At least for now I now about his past before he joined team rocket. :D

    P.S : Does anyone knows what is the song title when James have to leave Chimeco behind? My friend is having a little trouble finding the song.moreless
  • Ash and the gang asked for the help of Nanny and Pop-Pop for May's Munchlax and we found out about James's past and that Nanny and Pop-Pop used to take care of him when he was young!!moreless

    Very good episode! I cannot believe it when I first watched this episode to find out that James, one of Team Rocket's evil members, had a pressured and strange past? I could not believe it first when I watched this episode! Nanny and Pop-Pop were pretty nice at wanting to take care of May's Munchlax and James's Chimecho, also to take care of James when he was quite young! When Jessie and Meowth wanted to steal the Pokemon and escape, I was even more surprised to see James help Ash and the others to fight Jessie and Meowth.He said:"All right,twerp, they're yours!!" Felt kind of sad for May's Munchlax when he felt sick. James also wanted to pose as part of a major business while Jessie and Meowth are his secretary and manicuritist? In the end,James has to give up his Chimecho but he got Mime.Jr in the end.

    Pretty good episode!!moreless
  • Great Episode. It's always sad to see James lose one of his pokemon because he was such a strong bond with him.

    We learn more about James past and his home life before he joined Team Rocket. James leaves his Chimecho at his Summer Mansion so it can recover and he gets a Mime Jr.

    James starts to cry before telling his grandparents that he'll leave it behind. James then gets Chimecho's PokeBall out but several falml out and one even enlarges. Seeing the enlarged PokeBall. Mime Jr runs over to it and taps the button and Mime Jr is bought into the ball. James waves to his Chimecho as he departs off into the sky.

    So sad yet, it was so sweet. :)moreless
