Totodile, Noctowl, and Ursaring!

"You know how it goes, three episodes from the hit anime series about a boy and his Pikachu...
First up, in "Love, Totodile Style", Totodile falls head over heels from a female Azumarril, but she wants nothing to do with him. Perhaps Brock can give Totodile a few pointers... well, maybe not. And how does a Golduck figure into all this? Next, in "Fowl Play", Ash and company come across a super-smart, shiny Noctowl! This clever Pokemon has eluded capture for a long time; will Ash be the one to snag it? Finally, in "Forest Grumps", the kids and Team Rocket find themselves trapped in a forest filled with grumpy Ursaring! Even worse, Jessie finds herself with Brock and Ash, and Misty is stuck with James and Meowth! Can't they all just get along... at least long enough to survive a pack of Ursaring??
All of the episodes featured on this DVD are pretty top notch, which is rare, especially for Season 3. Totodile's antics in the first episode provide plenty of laughs, and Noctowl's antics in the second are a hoot. And 'Forest Grumps' provide a more human view of our favorite trainers as they overcome their differances and get along. All and all, a very well recommended purchase."
Totodile and Azumarill?

"If you're a fan of Ash's journey to the Johto League, you should like these three episodes. I'll describe each of these three episodes to you sepreately since I like each of them differently.(I actually like only the first of these three episodes.)Episode 3-48: Love, Totodile Style: Ash and friends take a break at a lake. After Ash and Misty let out all their water Pokémon, Ash's Totodile notices and falls in love with this Azumarill. However, Azumarill doesn't feel the same way about Totodile. At the same time, Ash, Misty, and Brock are about to have some of Brock's beef stew when they notice a Golduck in the bushes. Misty gets ready to try to capture it, but then it's trainer, a woman with red hair, green eyes, a blue half-shirt, tan pants, a green braclet, red shoes, and a blue bow in her hair, appears. As usual when this happens, a smitten Brock runs up to the concerned girl and introduces himself to her (just like Totodile was with her Azumarill). The woman tells him that her name is Trixie. After Misty pulls Brock back by the ear, Ash asks the Trixie what she and her Golduck were looking for. The 23-year old explains that she was looking for her Azumarill, which then runs up to her, followed by Totodile. Later, we find out that Trixie manages this Pokémon circus and that Azumarill is the star of the show. After the show, Brock decides to give Totodile a few love lessons. However, Team Rocket appears and snatches Azumarill, then wait for Ash to have Pikachu try to stop them, only for Pikachu to be snatched as well. After telling Trixie what happened, she'll help our friends find Team Rocket and get their Pokémon back.Episode 3-49: Fowl Play: Ash and friends are in a dark forest and find a middle-aged professor who is looking for a Noctowl with an unusual color. They'll all find out that this particular Noctowl will be very difficult to catch.Episode 3-50: Forest Grumps: After Team Rocket try to snatch all of Ash, Misty, and Brock's Pokémon. What happens then is these Ursaring appear and start chasing all of them. The result, Jessie ends up with Ash and Brock and Misty ends up with James and Mewoth. Both sides will have to avoid the Ursaring who keep appearing.Why I like these episodes:Love, Totodile Style: I like seeing Azumarill as well as Totodile falling in love with it. I'm okay amitting this, I also think Trixie is a pretty woman that's in her early twenties and I really like her.(You'll agree when you see her.)Fowl Play: This episode's okay, but not one of my favorites.Forest Grumps: This episode's okay, but not one of my favorites.This DVD is a highly recommended purchase for anyone that likes Pokémon."
Don't even think twice...

"Pokemon is the greatest show ever. It can teach us sime valuable life lessons, such as who to trust. However, if you want Pokemon DVDs, you should not get this one. The 3rd season episodes all have the same plot, and "Forest Grumps" is one of the worst Pokemon episodes ever. I suggest buying DVDs from the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th seasons, but NOT the third season. This DVD gets 1 extra star for "Fowl Play", which is one of the only decent episodes in the 3rd season, but "Love, Totodile Style and "Forest Grumps" are not worth it. If you insist on getting 3rd season episodes, get the Gym ones and "Midnight Heroes"."
