Emolga The Irresistible! Summary And Review


Hey guys! Today I will be summarizing and reviewing the 24th episode of the Pokemon Black and White series. In the previous episode, Ash earned his third gym badge by defeating Burgh in a 3-on-3 gym battle. The show beings with a trio of Patrat bouncing on a tree limb to yield some tasty apples. An Emolga peeks from a tree and flops down on the ground next to them. It proceeds to use Attract on all 3 of them, and as a result, takes off with all their hard-earned apples.

Ash, Iris, and Cilan are seen eating lunch with a guest, Bianca. Iris presents some apples for dessert afterwards, to which Bianca responds negatively. Oshawott pops out spontaneously and grabs an apple. Axew is handed one as well, but mishandles it and chases after it down a hill. An Emolga takes his apple and daydreams about a scenario to take all of Iris’s apples. It thinks that if it is nice to Axew, Iris will offer her apples in return. This is exactly what happens, but Bianca comes running down and smothers it. She shows her intentions to catch it and sends out her Mincinno to battle it. Mincinno begins with Double-slap and follows that up with Hyper Voice. It uses Tickle next, but that provokes Emolga to use Discharge and electrocutes everyone. Both battles uses Attract, but only the wild Pokemon’s attack goes through. Oshawott pushes Mincinno out of the way and begins to fall in love. It turns out our new friend is a girl. It flies away as Bianca and Axew chase after it.

Axew wants to give an apple to Emolga so they go looking for it. Bianca has her own intentions and heads off. We see it find some apples and its thoughts about Iris’s apples as well as a negative view of Bianca and being caught. Iris finds her and reveals that her Pokemon has a small crush on the electric-mouse. Just when they are about to cement their friendship, Bianca interrupts. She flies away, but Iris and Axew follow it, but they end up in a forest full of Swoobat. Emolga can’t stand it and she electrocutes all of them. Ash and the others play catch up.

Iris, Emolga, and Axew find a small pond and proceed to have a bit of fun. The electric mouse decides to use Hidden Power into the pool, but gets a little carried away and provokes a school of Swoobat nearby. She electrocutes them again and they make a run for it. The others are in the forest and look upon a rustling bush. Bianca decides to launch a surprise attack with Pignite, but mistakenly attacks a Scolipede. Iris and the two take cover in a small cove. Ash and the others are able to get away from Scolipede and they come to rustling tree. Bianca prematurely attacks again, attacking a Galvantula this time. Angered, it shocks all of them. Back in the cove, a huge group of Swoobat attacks them. They are surrounded and forced to fight. Iris sends out her Excadrill in hopes that he will defend them. It stays clammed up. Emolga uses her Attract, but has no effect on the male Swoobat. Excadrill is inadvertently affected and Iris recalls him, shaking her head.

Pokemon Plush Review – MPCs.

By Myntii

MPCs, otherwise known as ‘My Pokemon Collection’ plush, are small plush made by Banpresto that can be obtained through the UFO claw machines in Japan. These plush were showcased at the World Hobby Fair in Tokyo in January 2011. Several MPCs were also shown at the Amusement Machine Operators Expo 2011, also in Tokyo, in February. They started appearing in the UFO games in late April of this year, which are claw machines where one uses a joystick to manuever a large claw around in order to grab a prize. The MPCs are released in 6-plush sets every few weeks. In an announcement made in March 2011, Banpresto noted on their MPC mobile site that these plush will be released in every Unova Pokemon, for a total of over 100 plush! In July, the first two non-Unova Pokemon were featured in the line-up – Meowth and Pikachu. Also, for Pokemon such as Deerling, or Shikijika, there will be separate plush for each of their versions.

My Pokemon Collection plush are made of soft, minky fabric and are a small size, each at roughly 4 inches, or 10 centimeters, in height. Some characters have certain attributes that make them a little larger. For such small size, they are incredibly detailed and high quality. Their features are embroidered. They also have a black, ball-chain attached to the top so that you can hang them from purses, backpacks, windows, and anything else you’d like. Each plush has an ID, or serial number, found on their paper tag, that one can use to register on the mobile site, which can be found at http://bpnavi.jp/mpc/, using a cellphone after winning the plush. After registering, you can name your plush and share your collection with other people. Paper tags feature a picture of the Pokemon and its name in Japanese. The paper tags for the different sets are different. The first two releases featured square tags, first in yellowish orange, and then in green. In the third release, the tag design changed to a cellphone-like shape with a blue outline. This design has remained the same in the fourth release. They also have a small tush tag that resembles a Pokeball, in addition to the regular Banpresto tush tag.

Along with the regular releases, there have been some special MPC plush that have been added in celebration of the newest Pokemon movies, Victini and the Black Hero, and Victini and the White Hero. The first movie version set was released in the last week of June. In total, there will be three movie sets, A, B and C, some of them including new plush of characters that have been released regularly, such as Blitzle/Shimama, or the same character with a different expression, such as Victini’s movie release, which shows him frowning. Their paper tags are similar to those of the third and fourth sets, but with a purple outline instead. These special movie plush are released in 5-character sets.

Which Is The Most Appealing Electric Rodent?

By Brandon Yeo

The Electric Rodent species of Pokemon is one that is well known and is not a common sight in all five generations. It begins of course with the well known Pikachu, the first of the electric mice with brown stripes and a lightning shape tail that identifies it from its various counterparts. Coming with Pikachu is of course Raichu, an oversized rodent maybe, that might account for it slow speed as compared to Pikachu. In the second generation, we are also introduced to Pichu, the baby mice, clearly meant to make kids squeal when they see him, especially seen in the Pikachu Movie introducing the notorious “Pichu Brothers”. Next up is the third generation and my personal favourite – Minun and Plusle, the cheering mice that always seem to stick together and likewise appear together in the Pokemon series. This is clearly evident in Destiny Deoxys as well as in the other episodes of the Pokemon series. For the Fourth Generation, Pachirisu, seeming more like a squirrel than a mouse as compared to its other counterparts, however still similar, identified by its huge tail and its yellow cheeks. Lastly the most recent would be Emolga the flying squirrel pokemon, similar to that of Pachirisu.

After all that description, who indeed is the most appealing of them all? Clearly, Pikachu being Ash’s main Pokemon would be a natural candidate for it, however I may beg to differ. As Minun and Plusle and my favourite Pokemon, my biasness would naturally tend to make them the most appealing, however all of the electric rodents have their own aesthetic appeal. For Pikachu, this could include the perception of a small cuddly mouse and coupled with its high voice, it gives people more reason to love Pikachu. However in Pikachu’s line, my personal preference would be that of Pichu, especially with the presence of the mischievous Pichu brothers that make them all so lovely. Being babies too, this all the more makes them aesthetically appealing. For Raichu however, he personally doesn’t appeal much to me being over-sized and to me, “not too cuddly”, but similarly opinions are subjective and many people do love the Rai-Rai especially with his appearance as Lt. Surge’s Raichu.

Electric Rodent Pokemon

By Anonymous

In the Pokemon World you will see many types. These types range from anywhere. I could be grass to fire, ground to rock, ice to dragon, dark to ghost. Pokemon types cover most of the elements. Several Pokemon are electric type. Most of the time they are rodents. Well, at least in every region there has to be one rodent Pokemon. At least one electric rodent Pokemon.

The first one we should all know is Pikachu! Pikachu is yellow, of course and has red cheeks, he evolves into a Raichu, which is a lot like Pikachu except it has yellow cheecks and an orange boddy and white belly. It evolves from Pikachu if it is given a Thunderstone.

In the Johto region there isn’t an entirely new species of Pokemon to be the electric rodent, just a pre-evolution to another. This is the pre evolved form of Pikachu known as Pichu. Pichu has black ears that are flat and wider triangles then Pikachu’s smaller version. He has a yellow, pale color skin unlike Pikachu’s yellow color. Pichu has a pink color on his cheeks instead of red cheeks.

Pokemon Fifth Generation Tomy Plush

By Emily

One of the major producers of Pokemon collectables for Japan, Takara Tomy has created many unique items over the years, and continues to do so for the fifth generation. While they may not produce plush with as much variety as Banpresto, the quality of the plush is great enough to rival those from the official Pokemon Center line of plush. Takara Tomy also has an exclusive line of talking plush, which are very popular and sought-after.

The first plush for the fifth generation made by Takara Tomy were of Zorua and Zoroark because of the 13th Pokemon movie. Zoroark was a sizably large plush at nearly one foot tall, while Zorua was roughly seven inches tall. Two other Zorua plush were also released, and were the large and small talking plush. The large one was about the same size as the Zoroark plush, while the small one was about half the height and was made like a keychain with a small chain atop its head. In October, shortly after the release of Pokemon Black and White, Takara Tomy came out with another set of plush featuring three new Pokemon – Pidove, Axew, and Munna. The new plush were a little bigger than the Pokemon Center plush, and cost a small amount more.

All about Pokemon Minccino, Cinccino, and Emolga

By Emily

Both Minccino and Emolga share top spots as the cutest Pokemon from the fifth generation, with Cinccino trailing behind by just a little. While their strengths and attacks may not be perfect, their overwhelming cuteness and flood of merchandise more than makes up for it.

Emolga is a bit harder to find than Minccino since it only in shaking grass. Both Pokemon can be found on multiple routes, so you can get one at a relatively high level if you so desire. Despite needing an evolutionary stone to evolve, Cinccino can also be found in the wild where Minccino is normally found, but like Emolga it will only be in the shaking grass.

A Teenager’s View on Emolga

By Matt

Here’s the trend I’ve seen with Pokemon for each region: There’s always some sort of adorable, mouse Pokemon that draws many people’s attention. Kanto featured Pikachu, the character that started it all, and now is a household name. Johto had Pichu, which was figured out as the pre-evolution of Pikachu. Hoenn, the third region, had Plusle and Minun, the electric duo that would assist the other in battle (abilities are Plus and Minus, which both raise the power of the other’s moves). Sinnoh had Pachirisu, the Electric Squirrel Pokemon, which many found cute and lovable. Now, we’re at Unova, with Emolga, the flying Squirrel! When I first saw Emolga, I thought it was like a flying Pikachu.

Minccino And Emolga Large Size Pokemon Plushies

By Brian Grabow

The Pokemon Centers in Japan have just released two new large size plushies. They are Minccino and Emolga, or Chillarmy and Emonga as they are commonly known in Japanese.

Chillarmy Large Plush
Minccino Giant Size Plush Toy

These are only sold in Japan at the Pokemon Centers and not at any toy stores. These two large plush toys are bigger than most large size plush toys, but smaller than the lifesize plushies.They both have incredibly soft fur that is like velvet. Very soft to the touch. They are very nicely detailed too.  Both of their faces have nice stitching and are very adorable. The eyes are really nicely made and Minccino’s ears are also really cool. Very nice quality I think.

Both plushes are about 14-15 inches tall (about 35-38cm), so they are quite big. Not as big as the lifesize plushies, but pretty big.  The Minccino plushie is alot wider than Emolga Pokemon plush because of its gigantic ears, but they are both similar in height.
