  • I can understand why the writers chose to do this since there's more focus on the Pokemon looking for their trainers than the human characters, so the writers obviously felt the episode would be kind of boring if they just had the Pokemon walking around saying their names over and over again without the audience having a clue as to what they're saying
  • I particularly enjoyed the first scene featuring the two when both express amazement that they're alive and begin finishing each other's sentences while boasting how unbeatable they are

      “The Island of Giant Pokemon” is an episode of the “Pokemon” television series and the third and final episode in a three part story arc. After the group was thrown into an air by a mighty wind attack unleashed by a large, angry water Pokemon, they find themselves on an island, separated from some of their Pokemon. The episode follows one group, consisting of Ash, Misty and Brock and another group, Jessie and James, as they search for their missing Pokemon. What’s very unique about this episode compared with all the many other episodes of the series is that in the scenes that feature the lost Pokemon that are walking around the island in search of their masters, what they are saying is actually shown on screen in the form of subtitles. For the first and only time in the series, the audience actually gets to understand exactly what Pokemon like

      Bulbasaur and Ekans are saying. I can understand why the writers chose to do this since there’s more focus on the Pokemon looking for their trainers than the human characters, so the writers obviously felt the episode would be kind of boring if they just had the Pokemon walking around saying their names over and over again without the audience having a clue as to what they’re saying. The subtitles approach works and it sheds some additional light on the attitudes and personalities of the Pokemon characters, like Squirtle being cocky and confident and Bulbasaur being laid back and calm. This episode is certainly quite different from the other episodes in the series in this regard, and that’s one of the reasons it’s refreshing and fun to watch.

      The episode does a good job of keeping the mystery of why all the Pokemon on this one island are so big alive until ...


      • almost the very end, and when the mystery is revealed, it makes for a funny resolution considering how earlier in the episode, the characters were under the assumption that they the only humans on the island. The episode plays up the giant Pokemon concept comically, and especially funny watching Jessie and James panic and get chased by the large creatures. There’s a fair amount of humor in this episode, more so than in the previous two, especially due to Jessie and James’ antics and dialogue. I particularly enjoyed the first scene featuring the two when both express amazement that they’re alive and begin finishing each other’s sentences while boasting how unbeatable they are. The episode’s comedy is certainly strong, but equally strong is the animation. Some legendary Pokemon are briefly seen in this episode, such as the legendary bird of electricity and the legendary bird of fire, and both are impressively
        animated with lighting and fire around their respective bodies. Near the end, when all the characters are riding in the mine car, the animation is fast and fluid, effectively convey the speed in which the characters are moving and further enhancing the fast-paced feeling that the last seven or so minutes of the episode has.

        This episode serves as a satisfying conclusion to the three-part story arc as it ends with the characters being reconnected with civilization while still managing to tell a story in a unique format. Making what the Pokemon were saying appear in the form of subtitles was an effective technique that gave the audience a perspective that was unique in the respect that the personalities of the Pokemon were no longer just conveyed through actions and facial reactions. The humor and fast-paced finish were both top notch and coupled with attractive animation and appropriate music, makes this episode worthy of s “10″ rating.
