This was the first Orange Islands episode I saw and let me tell you something, it sucked. I never knew this was the episode after Charizard Chills at the time and would have joyed if Ash had used it to help move the truck blocking Team Blastoise or for anything. This episode even should have given Squirtle the inspiration to evolve Just like Treecko in What you seed is what you get!

I really liked Captain Adan and his team of wartortles as guest stars. They certainly made a great team in this episode and "The Fire-Ring Squad". I like the competition Squirtle felt with the wartortle leader and how they managed to resolve it in the end. It was especially funny when squirtle and the wartortle leader crashed into each other during the race and rolled across the finish line, and Tracey declared that they broke a land speed record. :) I do think it was a bit contrived that the blastoise team got held up by a truck that they weren't seen moving until several minutes later, when I"m pretty sure (based on blastoise's size and the number of them) that they could have easily gotten that out of the way much sooner and helped fight the fire, but otherwise that's my only quibble with the episode.

A good filler episode I like when they show Pokemon doing stuff other than battling, also a bunch of Blastoise held up by a overturned bus could have been dealt with better, and Ash could've simply used Charizard to rescue the kid instead of Squirtle and Wartortle going in.

there wasn't much to see in this episode, the glasses of ash's squirtle are funny though.

I liked the whole tracey didnt no what the glasses meant thing because he wasnt there. First time i saw this i thought squirtle was either gunna leave or evolve.

Cap'n Aiden... not bad looking ^_~ I remember actually saluting him when I watched this episode years ago.

The rest of the episode was kind of boring, though... Water Pokémon extinguishing fires... hooray! =\

Boring episode. I've had about enough of Squirtle by this point.

I remember this episode, I used to have it on VC and watch it pretty often. Loved how the Blastoise were too big to approach the fire and how the Squirtle didn't have a powerful enough Water Gun, meaning the Wartortles and Ash's Squirtle had to take action. One of the best fillers in the season.

P.S. Misty's Staryu is awesome ;)

I loved the battle between Squirtles and Wartortles.
I think Squirtel showed a lot of courage, although it smaller.
And the end was good, they worked in cooperation.

It was an okay episode. Not too exciting, but oh well.

Oh I BEG to differ. It was downright dreadful.

At least Squirtle had some screentime to itself. I really didn't like the fact that there had to be little rivalry.

I did like the ending though. Wartortle and Squirtle working together to save the little boy from the burning building. 4/10

This episode was terrible but also HILARIOUS due to the sheer amount of bad puns in quick succession. I watched this last and couldn't help but laugh.

"Pikachu has seen the light"

"It's a real bright spark"

"Pikachu has become our biggest fan...!" (While showing an electronic fan.)

A few scenes later Meowth mentions he's as 'hard as nails' and Jessie and James respond by threatening to 'hammer' him.

Oh Team Rocket. There was also a pretty bizarre/terrible line where James offers Ash and co. a "freezy weezy treat".

Yeah! It's weird how when you watch these episodes now, they're hilarious, but back then we didn't understand any of it. This episode was pretty exciting back in the day.

This episode was ok. The puns were funny. Seeing Squirtle and Wartortle work together was really cool, the fire rescue was great.

32/100

Seeing Ash and Misty rush in to stop a building that was burning was unnecessary. There was no reason why they needed to do that. It's nice to see Squirtle have an episode dedicated to it including a flashback to the Squirtle Squad as well.

This episode was one of the most memorable. IMO 9/11 puts this in a whole new perspective - a lot of firefighters lost their lives that day, and seeing firefighters in action fills me with patriotism.

A good filler episode, Squirtle and Wartortle were so brave to save the little boy.

Although it was nice seeing the Squirtle and Wartortle, this episode was boring in my opinion. At least they managed to get the job done!

I think this episode is overrated. However, I still like it, 7/10. The puns were funny. And the idea of Water Pokemon as firemen was cool as well!

It was cool seeing Squirtle whip out the old Squirtle Squad sunglasses. I was also glad that Squirtle and Wartortle managed to save that kid from the burning building at the end. But other than that, the episode was a little boring. As soon as I saw that Aidan's firefighting force consisted of members of the Squirtle line, I was expecting the rest of the Squirtle Squad to show up...and I was a little disappointed that it didn't (which in hindsight seems like a dumb thing to be disappointed by...)

I think this episode was pretty alright - not downright awful. Just seeing the whole Squirtle tree and firefighters was awesome and the rivalry between the Squirtle and Wartortle was a nice addition to the whole synopsis too.

It was an okay episode. It was nice to see Squirtle have a rivalry with a Pokemon. And Wartortle was the perfect Pokemon for it. I liked the Misty took control of setting out the fire. Even though she didn't succeed.

The rivalry between Squirtle and Wartortle was interesting, I liked it when Squirtle and Wartortle saved the boy. It was nice to see the Blastoise team, Wartortle team and Squirtle team. Overall, this was a great episode.

It was neat to see the entire Squirtle evolutionary line in one episode. :)

Almost everything about this episode irked me; Captain Aidan was such a bland COTD, and the head Wartortle seemed so arrogant. Anyway, I did at least like seeing burning buildings since we don't often see those in the anime, plus seeing all of Tracey's Pokemon do stuff was rad. I wish Ash's Squirtle had been left with Aidan here though.
