    Seems like a prediction I made in the last episode might come true.
    It looks like Harley may plan something to sabotage May in the Grand Festival.

    I would of thought that when it came to a sudden death overtime in a contest it would be the first effective direct hit against the other that would break the tie.

    It's funny how AshnCo. realize that Jessibella is Jessie in this episode, but they still haven't figured out that she's Jessibelle in Diamond & Pearl yet. Maybe they will towards the end of DP.

    This episode was cool. Squirtle vs Bannette was a very cool battle. Jessie definitely did terrible trying to command Bannette and that cost her against Squirtle. Boy was Harley furious when Jessie lost to May. It was cool to see a tie and Sudden Death for the 1st time in a contest. It was cool to see Frustration attack used for the 1st time. I'm glad May won the Contest Ribbon.

    An enjoyable battle. For some reason, I can't take Squirtle seriously as a battler, at least until May returns in Sinnoh, but suspending that disbelief it was a pretty good episode. Team Rocket and Harley weren't annoying and May and Jessie had a chance to shine in the final battle.

    I think the problem is they made it so tiny.

    Anyway I think this was a well done battle, certainly better than Squirtle learning icebeam out of nowhere in its first contest fight.

    Actually, that might be the reason. Its small size even compared to other small Pokemon doesn't give it the appearance of a battler. It looks like it should be in a Togepi role or something.

    This episode was pretty good, I liked the Contest battle between Jessiebella(Jessie) and May. Harley looked really furios when Jessie lost and his plan failed.
    The only thing I disliked about this episode was Drew's appearance .... Ash and the others should've gotten out of that box themselves.

    Something I noticed, unless I was just seeing things that weren't there, was that there should have been one more round between the third last round and the final round. It went straight in to the final round.

    Oh well, it doesn't matter that much anyway at this point, the episode is over now. No harm done.

    I liked seeing James and Meowth abduct Ash, Max and Brock all by themselves. Seeing Drew help and them all falling down a pitfall anyway made me cackle as well. I also hadn't noticed before, but Drew looked minuscule compared to Harley when they talked. Anyway, it was too bad that Harley's alliance with Team Rocket failed so miserably, but alas.

    This was probably one of May's biggest Mary sue moment in this episode. Even though Harley got Team Rocket to help sabotage May's appeal in the appeal round, May still gets past the 1st round. It just felt unrealistic to me for her to advance to the battle round. The battle was very good though and May ends up winning her 5th ribbon. 7/10
