Japanese Episode 155: "Ringuma de Dokkiri!""
Pokemon Dare Da? Ringuma (Japanese), Noctowl (English)
Japanese Air Date: June 6th, 2000
American Air Date: June 2nd, 2001
Satoshi-tachi are letting their pokemon relax in a forest when the Rocket-Dan appear to kidnap the pokemon. The Rocket-Dan's plan is thwarted when a group of Ringuma attack everyone. After the resulting confusion, everyone is jumbled up--Musashi gets lost with Satoshi and Takeshi while Kasumi is stuck with Kojirou and Nyasu. As each group tries to find its way through the forest, the members of the Rocket-Dan take note of how much better off Satoshi-tachi are in comparison to their meager life. Everyone is eventually reunited, and after a harrowing adventure on a rickety bridge, everything returns to normal. After the Rocket-Dan are beaten in a battle with Satoshi-tachi, Satoshi notices a sign stating that the forest they had just escaped from was the breeding ground of the Ringuma! Happy to be free of the hormonal Ringuma, Satoshi-tachi continue on their journey to Kogane City.
Ringuma keeps its Japanese voice.
In the dub, it's different. After game #1, he says:
Meowth: "The odd finger wins! At last, somebody's gonna hafta listen to me! Ha ha!"
Um..."the odd finger?" After the second game:
Meowth: "The odd finger wins! I'm the leader again!"
Again..."the odd finger?" I just don't get it. Finally, for the third game:
Meowth: "I won again! I won again!"
James: "Give someone else a chance."
Meowth: (looking down at hand) "Just when I was startin' ta feel lucky again."
Originally, Nyasu says something like "This is paper!", Kojirou questions if Nyasu really did have paper, and Nyasu responds with "This really is paper!" That's why Nyasu is looking down at his hand.
I actually got an e-mail about the whole "odd finger" thing. I had never heard of it before, but apparently somebody else had. Here's what MasterAsh42 said:
