This was an interesting gym battle, I mean all the other battles before this were mostly or all about battling, but this was all about how you and your pokemon communcate and work together ( I think thats whats the battles were mostly about) The first test Ash of climbing up the mountain was cute, Pikachu was having no trouble at all, but had some trouble. Ash falling off the mountain a little bit after getting mad at Misty for telling Danny to becare and not him was very cute.

This was another great Gym! It was so interesting to see how Danny ran his Gym and I liked when Ash, Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Squirtle had to carve the ice piece and it was hilarious when they had to race down the hill in it and it got smaller and smaller and then they shot into the sea.

I really liked this episode...mainly because im a pokeshipper but the orange islands battles were all great because they were different. Charizard helped without meaning to and we saw snow covered mountains and a tropical beach on the one island! Fascinating stuff...

I only saw parts of it, but if I were Misty I would've had a crush on Danny too. XD

Teee. I want Danny's shirt. Um.....*lost track of what she was going to say*

Wish we could see him again. O_o

Well, we do *kinda* see Danny again. He was in a flashback, I believe, in 'A Way Off, Day Off' which had a VERY suggesting song playing in the background. (What with the Ash and Danny scenes, and the song, it looked like a shippy music video.) And... he's in another flashback thing too. In 'Hello Pumello'. (It shows all the Orange Island Gym Leaders)

Hee, Danny... he was *so* coming onto Ash. And he had a ICE BEAMIN NIDOQUEEN! Which are awesome, 'cause they are.

Yes, yes he was. XD

Maybe he just likes flirting with the guys because he knows he's good-looking. XD *hobbles off to make a Danny x Rudy banner* I luff Danny. And I luff Rudy. :D But Rudy wasn't in this ep, so....*kicks* >3

Hey Joe, I can`t agree with you. I think, Misty has never had a crush on him.
He was just super nice for her, but probably, he is nice for almost every girl. I belive, Misty wanted make Ash jealous ;) that why she talked to Danny.
She said something like "Young kids are not interesting for me. I like adult guys". Ha! They are not interesting...ha! Everybody knows, she has a big crush on Satoshi!

She didn't initially have a big crush on him. Misty only happen to like him as soon he said "I've seen lots of beautiful things on this Island but nothing as beautiful as you!" rather than showing any immediate signs of affection as soon as she met him. That can happen sometimes when someone compliments you such as that and then suddenly you begin to fall for them!

Misty could of been trying to make Ash jealous, she certainly was trying to p*ss Ash off a lot, for example when they walked along the beach and Misty was talking to Danny, and to Ash too you could say as well lol "too bad certain other trainers can think that far ahead" or something along that line. Then a fight broke out.

Even though this gym battle was so different from normal gym battles, I still think it was pretty interesting (especially Charizard eventually helping shape the sled with his flamethrower). Danny is definitely one of my favorite gym leaders. I like how Misty kept going gaga over him, and Danny kept assuming things that Ash totally denied (like Team Rocket being his friends). I think this is also the episode that includes the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" joke (James saying "Is that your final answer?"). :)

This entire episode was very interesting. I loved the ending with Ash, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle riding in the ice sled-thing.

I thought the Nidoqueen was awesome with Ice Beam. Although I had expected the Ice Beam to come from it's mouth but instead cam off the top of it's horn. That was interesting...

:D This episode was really great. Actually, it was one of my favorites from the Orange Islands season. In general, I liked the way the Gyms were handled in OI. They were probably the most exciting and unique ones in the anime to me.

Danny was my second favorite Gym Leader from the Orange Islands, Cissy being the first. I always found Ash's determination to up-show him to be fun to watch. And Misty's crush on him was rather cute! :)

A good episode, Danny certainly has a very interesting setup to his gym it's probably the most original of all the Orange Island gym's. Was Ash getting jealous of Misty's flirting with Danny?, nice to see Ash showing his feeling for Misty. I like what Jessie said about Danny, "I don't like that guy's attitude it's to positive." I got a laugh out of that and I like how he handled TR the first time. Also congrats to Ash for winning a Sea Ruby Badge and his 2nd Orange League Badge.

I'm surprised that Lapras lost to Nidoqueen.

Misty drooling over Danny was a little pathetic, it reminded me of how Brock acts around women.

Apart from that it was a good match, and the sledge race was the funniest gym battle i've ever seen.

Misty likes a random MAN named Danny, not very good for the US audience.

I liked how there was a challenge and not a battle. A climb to the top, a sled making challenge, and a race to the buttom, very cool.

Glad Ash won in the end, 7/10

I really liked the Gym challenge in this episode. The three parts to the match were very interesting and unique - I especially liked the part where they had to carve out the sled, since I was impressed by how easily Charizard managed to do it.

The part at the beginning where Ash and Danny had to climb up the mountain looks really harsh...I would not like to have to do that. O__o

I remember when I saw this episode for the first time in years a year ago, on an old VHS of mine, and I enjoyed it a lot. Great episode, especially because Danny flirts with Misty (Ash's jealousy is funny). Also a nice and different gym challenge. 10/10, one of the many examples of why old episodes (Kanto, Orange Islands and Jotho) are (in my opinion) much better and more enjoyable than the newer anime seasons.

2nd November 2011, 3:14 AM
An okay episode it was cool to see Danny brush off Team Rocket with relative ease. Ash should've lost the race. It was probably the way the writers had him win that threw me off since he was pretty much outclassed from the beginning. I didn't care for Misty or Tracey in this episode.

Misty x Danny was a cute idea. I actually really liked this Gym challenge because of how odd it was. I think it was quite obvious that Ash only won because of a fluke, otherwise Danny completely had that one. I quite liked Danny's character.

First of all, Danny and Misty is not a cute idea! And Misty never was attracted to Danny anyways, she just wanted to see if Ash would be jealous, to get confirmation of the fact that Ash is in love with her.

And you are right, Ash was very lucky and didn't deserve to win! But a lucky win is better than an unfair badge, like Ash got in Kanto, multiple times.

What? She was attracted to him. Anyone of a lifespan of a million saw that. She was always some how attracted to mature guys. Which makes me wonder why does she would even bother with someone like Ash.

She only acted like she was attracted, she wanted to make Ash jealous to test his love. She wasn't attracted to Danny at all. By the way, Danny is too old for Misty. Misty said "I prefer the mature, intellectual type", and she only said that to hide and deny her love for Ash, which is definitely there. Misty isn't attracted to mature, intellectual people, she's attracted to Ash.

Not "as well", definitely. If you say "as well", you make it seem like Misty was also attracted to Danny, which she never was.

Again, what? Misty has always been more mature than Ash. This is why she got along with Brock alot other than with the whole ear pulling events. Plus, she did gravitate towards Rudy because he was mature too. Even though she likes Ash, she still thought he was too much of a kid for her. Just like Iris is doing.

If she was trying to make him jealous it might have been better to go for someone who was a little younger. I felt he was such a cradle robber and that she was a testicle digger.

No, Misty was and still is totally in love with Ash. There's definitely more than just liking each other between Ash and Misty. Sorry for being a PokeShipper...

Danny was just there and there wasn't another option on the island (Tracey, but he might experience Misty faking that she's attracted to him as a little weird). Misty never really fell in love with Danny, and Danny is a pedophile (at least, I assume he is, I think he's 25-30 years old, so he's too old for Misty). And about Misty saying ""I prefer the mature, intellectual type": she and Ash are often in denial about their relationship when it comes up in conversation, this is an example of that.

Caseydia
4th March 2012, 2:49 AM
I just think that they should have been a better way of doing things instead of like that. Since she had a big mouth, she should have opened it more instead of subjecting herself to someone who you said she didn't like.

Falstaff
13th March 2012, 7:09 AM
I think Misty 'did' have a little crush on Danny because he was mature and complimented her (same with Rudy), which is something Ash didn't do very often.

So don't freak out about Misty liking Danny; it doesn't mean she doesn't love Ash! It's just that her relationship with Ash was a constant struggle and she enjoyed being adored now and then.

She said something like "Young kids are not interesting for me. I like adult guys". Ha! They are not interesting...ha! Everybody knows, she has a big crush on Satoshi!

I agree. I think she was flattered by Danny's compliment, that she used the "I prefer mature guys" line to hide her feelings for Ash (because Danny knew Misty has feelings for Ash), and that she acted like she was cheering for Danny to motivate Ash. And by trying to make Ash jealous, she could see if Ash would show jealous reactions, to see whether Ash loves her or not. And Ash's jealous reaction was what Misty wanted: Ash showed that he loves Misty.

I also don't think Misty would be attracted to a guy who is two or three times her age.

I'm not saying that Misty liking Danny is impossible, but I don't think Misty is attracted to him. But Misty liking Danny certainly isn't canon.

I agree with you AquaMilotic!

Like you said about the line when Misty says she prefre "mature guys". Okay no one with eyes can deny that Misty likes Ash (I think it's clear Ash likes her too but he has way less hints so I can understand people having a question about that part) which show us one thing. That specific line is not true and is only used to see what reaction Ash will have. This thing with Misty trying to make him jealous is very clear in the entire episode and you can clearly see that Ash is getting angry about it and falls of the mountain cause he gets to distracted by the fact that "Maybe Misty likes him more then me".

I'm glad you agree. Misty didn't really like Danny, but Ash felt like he was a potential threat to his relationship, and acted like that.

Do you also think Misty cheering for Danny was meant to motivate him?

25th December 2012, 9:58 PM
How do you mean with cheering?
Haven't seen the episode for a while so don't remember the episode in detail but is Misty really cheering for him?

I know she tells Danny to be extra carefull when he climbs in those mountains (and Ash ofc is getting angry about it) and yeah that part is most likely to make Ash jealous. If you do get jealous in this situation you will work even harder to win. Misty knows that Ash is very competitive so it's a perfect way for her to try to understand what Ash thinks about her. And if the answer is what she want it to be (like it is) then he will be even more motivated to win. But I don't think giveing Ash more motivation was the biggest reason for why she acted like she did.

She wanted to see if Ash did get jealous and that was the main thing she went for. Even if he ended up more motivated too.

Well, I mean this:
- Misty waved at Danny from the cable car, not at Ash.
- Misty offered Danny to share her blanket, she didn't offer that to Ash.

She seemed to support Danny more than Ash, I think it was for jealousy and motivational purposes.

I agree, she mostly wanted to see jealousy, and the motivation was just an added thing.

ArmadaUGS
26th December 2012, 12:40 AM
Okay now I know what you mean. When I think a little bit about it I think she only did it for making him jealous. She has been liking Ash for such a long while so it's not weird she is trying to figure out what he feels and what she is doing is a good way to get a clue at least.

Ash already is so motivated so I don't think Misty feelt he need that. But yeah the fact Ash see Danny as a threat is adding motivation for him too but like you said I think it was a more added thing that came out of her intentions.

Just curious is all, it's what I've heard at least. =P I loved the raft building scene, I thought it was awesome. =P Even though I am not a Pokeshipper I can't deny that statement though. =P I do remember Ash getting ticked off and falling off the mountain cuz Misty was paying too much attention to Danny. =P And then there's 'You always hurt the ones you love.' =P

Arriving on Navel Island, Ash meets the Gym Leader Danny who Misty has a crush on.

Gee, I don't remember Misty crushing on Danny in the episode XP

This episode was full of Pokeshipping and Iceraceshipping (Misty x Danny). I found it weird that Misty fell for someone who's too old for her. Just a few words of Danny made Misty fall for him?! -_- .The way danny told Misty " I've seen lots of beautiful things on this island but nothing as beautiful as you " was flirty and weird, I wonder what would he say if he meets May or Dawn someday ? I guess Ash got ticked off because Misty wasn't supporting him and was paying too much attention to Danny. She seemed upset when Ash won and Danny lost.

Danny's " You always hurt the ones you love." line was stupid, Hurting someone you love is not good. I'm glad Ash got the Sea Ruby badge.

For a tropical island archipelago, I'm surprised one of these islands get's cold enough to have snow on it.

I really disliked the way that Misty and Tracey basically snubbed Ash throughout the episode, especially the former. I also didn't like Danny; he was too perfect as a character and it was strange watching Ash's determination to win while Danny didn't seem to have much passion in return in my view.
