I saw it! YAY SCEPTILE! lol sinced I missed Cutting the Ties That Bind *cries and cuts self* Anyways, Sceptile was awesome in this episode. yeah. That's my whole thing about it. It was nice to see Swellow again, lol I only watch episodes that I know that have Sceptile in it lol
This is Swellow's last real battle in the series, isn't it?
In terms of major battles, yes, but it still has a few more good fights in some fillers.
Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
Best. Frontier. Battle. YET. Of course I'm not judging the remaining five until I see them. This episode was pretty awesome start to finish, and it was nice that it was a little different in that it took place over a large area.
My two cents:
-- Okay, anybody else surprised that they left Meowth's near-neutering... um, intact (pardon the pun)? I have the feeling that if it had been 4Kids doing this episode, they would have, er, cut out the closeup. I like 4Kids *and* PUsa, but I still can't help wondering. That scene was friggin' HILARIOUS.
-- On a related note, Team Rocket getting caught in their own traps three times was funny too.
-- Best line: Meowth (after the scene): "Maybe we all have some self-hatred issues."
-- I may not be a fan of Heracross, but it was funny to see the Bulbasaur running gag again, even if it was with Venosaur.
-- Seeing Sceptile learn a new attack after regaining its old attacks was great. It also seems like it's been a long time since we've seen pound, I don't know why.
-- Team Twerp in a balloon and Team Rocket never in one- that's just odd. Cool camera/referee gizmo too.

I hate chaining. -_-
This was a good and interesting episode, but it was a bit of a disappointment that Heracross had such a weak showing. They said that Spenser's Venusaur was strong, but they should've given a more reasonable background for why it could survive for so long. It completely pwned Heracross, all while getting hit by two Megahorns, a Fury Attack, and a Tackle iirc. It also was slammed hard into a tree by one Megahorn, but it seemed to shrug off all of these hits like nothing. Heracross was also KOed by a Solarbeam, which was a bit silly. I think that was only the second hit Heracross had taken.
Anyway, Venusaur is a good Pokemon, but Spenser's was unrealistically strong IMO, and Heracross didn't get enough screentime.
Thank you, SapphireL.
I can BREAK these cuffs!
A interesting episode.
Just watched it! I thought it was a great battle and it was nice to see Heracross again, but it was a shame that it was only in for about a minute. It didn't seem to take much damage from Tackle, but was killed by Solarbeam. That Claydol was pretty good, shame that Rapid Spin doesn't do that much damage in the games. It was nice to hear some new music.
This episode was a good and quick gym battle. I liked the battle because i knew that it wouldn't take so long for ash to beat the leader. And that it was a long waited return of his Heracross! That was proberbly the best thing in the episode for me and the lil bit where he was sucking all that nector from Venusaur! And the great bit where we saw Sceptile so Solarbeam! Great move! And for its first go it just happens to do it with no problems? Well thats still pretty good! 8.5/10 for me! Great!

This was a good episode. Seeing Sceptile using all of its attacks again in an offical battle and owning is good on Sceptiles part. Ash seems to show more and more emotion as episodes go by, and it wasn't as flat this time. Whoever's voicing Sceptile is doing a good job.
Haxorus has been pitted against a Raticate in a pokemon battle. Who will get to make the first move?
I've seen the ep a couple of times and I'm not sure if Heracross's voice has changed or stayed the same.
Claydol looks as cuddly as ever. And that wasn't sarcasm. Yes, I'm strange.
I was really impressed with its combinations. Using Rapid Spin to create a faux Sandstorm was pretty good, and mixing it with rain and rocks to cause even more damage was candy for the eyes. But then I'm a fan of Sandstorm. Hence my username. And Rapid Spin combined with Psybeam was great too. I only wish the games allowed us to combine moves like that.
Nice episode. One of the better Brain battles in my opinion. When I first saw this in mid-2007 I liked it, and I've watched it again just recently and it's still good. I'm glad they bought back Heracross for the ep, its battle with Venusaur was good.
It was too easy to beat Shiftry, Sceptile was very smart in this battle. Spenser's pokemon was strong, but Ash handled with them preety good.

It was cool seeing heracross return although having him lose was pretty lame. Sceptile just keeps getting better and better.
Loved it at the end when Sceptile solarbeamed solrock.
It was pretty cool.

I loved seeing Heracross in action again since you know any episode with it will be pretty good. I also liked that the trainers (Spenser and Ash) actually did something other than simply give commands to their Pokemon. Running around gave the episode some action which is something we really need more of in Pokemon. It was a nice addition to a great battle. 9/10 for the innovative battle.
