Pokemon - Gender Change?
In the episode, the Flame Pokémon-athon, Ash and co. get into a race. At the race, you see all of the contestants at the starting gate. One person is riding on a Nidorino, the evolved for of the male Nidoran. However, when Team Rocket hits the Tauros, causing his to attack, that person's pokémon has turned into a Nidorina, the evolved form of the Female Nidoran. What's up with that? Did the animators get the names mixed up and drew the wrong one?

This was not an error! There was a Nidorino trainer and a Nidorina trainer. They were seperate people. In fact later in the show they become confused and the two Nidoran evolutions start beating the Pokedaylights out of eachother.

Just to say, Nidorina and Nidorino did NOT get into a fight, I watched the episode the other day and it was Nidorina and Tauros that started fighting. There is a Nidorino though. At the beginning you see each trainer with their small herd of Poké ceratures and it does show Nidorino and Nidorina.

Let me clear all this up: There WERE a Nidorino and a Nidorina in the Pokemon Reserve. At the beginning of the race, there was a Nidorino. When the Tauros bumps into it, it suddenly becomes a Nidorina. It's that simple.

I didn't see if it was a Nidorina or a Nidorino, but doesn't the announcer say something about those two pokemon getting in a fight?

Are you sure that it was the same trainer riding the Nidorino and Nidorina?

Well, I haven't seen that episode in a while (Heck, I hardly watch Pokémon anymore at all) but there were definitely a Nidorino AND a Nidorina in the race. Team Rocket shot something at the Tauros which confused him (I can say him because Tauros are male 100% of the time o.o) and he attacked the Nidorina or something and they started fighting, I don't remember if the Nidorino was involved in that at all but I just don't think this is a slip-up. >-<

Nidorino can't change into nidorina, so this is a good slip-up.
