As you may have already read from the latest Bulbanews update, the site Web Newtype put up episode summaries of the next three episodes in Japan, epi 148's specifically mentioning Takeshi's Numakorou (aka. Brock's Marshtomp). All I can say is... ABOUT TIME! I admit to liking Mudkip more than Marshtomp, but since the Anime seems to be getting over its whole "evolution is rare" mind set from first season it was only right that Mudkip would someday evolve too. The next step is to actually get one of the main co's Hoenn starters to its 3rd evo... perferably May's Combusken. Comments? Curses?
