    Nah...Skitty v. Dusclops was worse. All Skitty could use (effectively) was Assist to hope for Ember, Silver Wind, or String Shot. Plus you had evidence that Timmy (yes?) had had Dusclops and was raising it for quite a long time since he met it as a Duskull. Ariados on the other hand had no evidence of being owned for any period of time.

    Anyway, Yuma looked so much like Saori to me its unreal...I thought she had looked familiar.

    I need to watch this again in Japanese...I feel like I missed a lot when it was dubbed due to edits. For anyone who does know Japanese and saw this episode in Japanese, were the plots at all similar? I remember when this ep first came out people didn't seem to know what was going on between Yuma and Molly (or whatever her Japanese name was).

    Skitty Vs. Dusclops was indeed the worst contest battle. I was so disappointed too because the Phantom had an awesome backstory and it was a shame how the battle went. One Blizzard took out half of Dusclops points, ugh.

    Squirtle Vs. Ariados really only gets its flak because of Ice beam and that everyone wanted Harley to win that time. They really should have used all those early BF fillers to have Squirtle learn Ice beam properly rather than during the Contest.

    This Contest had its cheap points, but it didn't bother me as much as either the above did.

    Something I noticed about the dub version was that it seemed a lot less slanted in May's advantage. The original had May's Theme start playing and she started to completely dominate for no real reason. In the dub, it was just standard bgm and May started to completely dominate for no reason. Something about it seemed to not be as biased.

    It was still cheap though. :x

    At least he didn't get KO'd. Time ran out so he probably would have won if it wasn't a time limit.
    First of all, I would like to say I am really happy that Marshtomp lost because of time/points and not because it got KO'd. I think the reason why Brock lost some points in the beginning was because some of his moves were dodged by Eevee when it used Dig. But on that logic, Eevee would have lost when Marshtomp avoided 5 Digs in a row...

    I have seen the Japanese version of the episode (still waiting to be able to watch the English version, and I thought Brock really had what it takes to be a real coordinator. Brock aslo happend to take advantage of Marshtomp's fin in the early minutes of the contest's, which made him a real strategic battler. Brock also happened to use its protect to his advantage as well. I figured all the vocals would be lost even with Pokemon USA/TAJ doing translation, but did they use any English subtitude or just regular bgm?

    Haha, I never noticed Drew's picture while watching it. Guess I was too intent on other things *whistle*

    The final battle was pretty cool, and poor Brock, Yet another broken heart XD The things that guy would do just for a girl >_<

    Squirtle was pretty good in the first round. That ice structure was sweet, but I think the best one is in the episode where Squirtle burst the big bubble and turned it into a different ice structure. That was a lot more prettier.

    This episode was good. I'm glad Marshtomp did something memorable and used a new attack in this episode. My only complaint is that Molly's (The girl with the Raticate and Absol.) voice was so ANNOYING! It sounded like she had larangytis(sp?) and sinus problems all at the same time.

    Wow, so far I'm batting 1.000 on the episodes I figured would be the best this season- "Time-Warp Heals All Wounds", "Off the Unbeaten Path", and this episode. This episode was AWESOME. Seeing another twerp besides May participate in the contests was terrific, and I love the way that Brock was convinced by that girl to participate. And darn it, he should have WON the contest. He and Marshtomp had Eevee's number from the get-go. I can't believe May ended up with more points than him. I'm sure the episode would have ended the same whether he won or lost, poor Brock, but he really should have gotten a win. At least Team Rocket got a happy ending (yay, they have money!), even if Brock didn't.

    And, hey, NewBrock, if you're around: I LOVED your voicework in this episode, you were terrific.

    Overall, 10/10.

    As expected, the baseball scene was left untouched, but the english version is better. Bill Rogers, your Brock rocks! He sounded exactly what he needed to be in this contest, serious. Great work!

    Brock done well in this episode! He should have one but May just had to win by a total fluke again! But it is good that Brock lost because if he won then Brock would have been a co-ordinater and a breeder. And he should just stick to being a breeder which he is so yeah... Great battle! 8/10

    Hm this was refreshing. I don't think I've seen May and Brock battle before this. It was quite nice.

    And Brock was great in the contest. he almost won the ribbon.

    Brock enters a Contest, because he likes a girl...

    I wish he'd do that more often, his Pokemon work well in the Contests. This episode was cool, a new twist on things since the main characters rarely battle each other.

    A good 7/10

    Not a bad episode, of course Brock's gonna enter a contest for a girl lo. I don't think he actually wanted to win, he would have probably ended up giving the ribbon to May if he wanted to.

    I like Squirtle's appeal with the combo of Bubblebeam and Ice beam, an actual good appeal (Some appeals with some trainers I don't get how they get through)

    Really great episode, the voice acting was terrific and it was nice to see Brock in a contest for once. Though I feel the fact that Marshtomp lost points as Eevee dodged its attacked, but when Marshtomp dodged many of Eevee's digs, the points didn't go down.

    Oh well! Good episode, none the less. Poor Brock gets knocked down again.

    9/10 - one point off for Brock's loss.

    So typical the Brock would enter a contest for a girl =p

    Brock really did a great contest battle against May. It's really refreshing to see two main characters battling with either of the 2 not being Ash.

    8.5/10

    Brock is a moron. He'll battle for a girl but won't ever battle just to train his Pokemon for once.

    My ideal battle ever!

    When THE battle between May and Brock started, I sort of had a feeling that Brock was going to win. And then he'd end up giving his ribbon to May to show how much of a good sport he is.

    But, the way it turned out in the end was still good.
    I'm still glad May won.
