    Oh, how I LOVED to see them boys work together so they all could watch May battle.

    She sure knows how to get boys around her, I'll give her that XD

    Yeah, while the females battle, the males duke it out, out back. Oh yes <3

    In other words, I liked this episode. And the animation was much better than the last one.

    So what was the point of James and Meowth trapping Ash, Brock, and Max anyways? Just so they couldn't watch the contest? Seems like a pointless filler sidequest to me. The battle between May and Jessie was alright and for the most point sensical besides bubble beating out thunder that is. The GF being at the Indigo leads me to believe that Ash may re enter the Indigo league or at least have something significant happen there.

    Very awesome episode! Extremely epic. May gets through SO much challenges and still ends up winning. And of course that awesome Squirtle.

    It definately wasn't the best I've seen, but it certainly wasn't as bad as last weeks garbage. Hell, at least the characters were on-model this time around. Artwork was pretty decent, the animation itself was mediocre.
    But anyway...

    This episode...something about it didn't click well with me. It was a decent attempt overall, but it didn't grab my attention as much as last week's effort.

    Squirtle's battle against Banette was fine, though none of it's tactics really impressed me. I can only take so many Rapid Spin and Ice Beam attacks until they become dull and redundant. And considering we've already seen enough of these moves already...
    There were one or few little touches that weren't exactly ideal, such as Bubble plowing through a Thunder. But we've seen weedy attacks plow through full-force moves on numerous occassions already. Grovyle, Corphish and even Charizard have done the same thing.
    Honestly, I think the only real problem I had with it's battling was the way it deflected Skarmory's Steel Wing. I'm sorry, but I for one find it hard to believe an on the spot Rapid Spin would be enough to knock that huge metallic bird for a loop. Otherwise, everything else was fine.

    The highlight of this episode, imo, was Banette going totally nutso on Squirtle with it's FRUSTRATION (bolded for silly members who ask repetative questions) attack. Both satisfying and amusing. I can only imagine how pleased our friend Yamato-san was after witnessing Squirtle taking a series of kicks, smacks and headbutts to the cranium.
    And this? Priceless.

    Someone needs to make a gif of Bannette pelvic thrusting Squirtle. That was lol hillarious!

    Anyway, in that pic you posted Gravy, I think James is imitating Harley.

    Squirtle vs Banette was really taking the cake.

    Numerous Thunderbolts? Bubble overpowered Thunderbolt?

    Banette never once used Thunderbolt during that battle. Thunder probably doesn't work so well with Banette because it isn't an electric type.

    Ash's reaction to the news of the GF's location was interesting. I wonder if that's foreshadowing something...

    Nice to finally see Frustration in the anime. Now to see what Return would look like. Never did like the English name of that attack, it's far too vague. Frustration is more descriptive.

    Sigh.

    You know, it's starting to get annoying that people bash Squirtle EVERY SINGLE TIME it battles. (Can't believe I'm defending it in the first place)

    Honestly.

    What the HELL was uber about Squirtle in this episode? It didn't do a single thing that was uncalled for or magical that made it win. It took a good deal of damage from Banette, and they even had to go into sudden death because they had the same number of points.

    Granted, Banette is one of Harley's Pokemon and very experienced, but the way the battle played out was fine for both sides.

    aw, why must you be such a kill-joy, Cyber? T_T Even if they are bashing, it's music to my ears (seriously though, I'm aware such behavior's intolerable and needs to be stopped.... unfortunately).

    I don't know... considering how many times the anime has made it a point that water conducts electricity (if any brainiac wants to state that it's actually the minerals in water that are conducted, then let me say that either A. this is anime physics we're talking about, and with the way it's constantly brought up, this is how the anime's physics work, or B. water Pokemon clearly have minerals in their water attacks), you'd expect it to be pretty much be a given that an electric attack would go straight through a water projectile to directly strike the user, not be countered by said water attack, or worse, be overcome by it. At least with Eneko's Blizzard against a Hellger's Flamethrower, the two evened out (and logically, that could make sense... fire melts ice, the ice then becomes water, water puts out fire).

    Damn straight. ^^ And dude, I totally forgot to mention Kojirou acting like Harley. XD

    I don´t know...I´ve waited so long to get this episode..but in the end..I didn´t actually like it...

    What´s the big deal of keeping Ash-tachi way fomr the contest? It´s not like May was nervous that her friends wasn´t with her during the battle phase this time...a bit lame...Foretress was a plus, tough

    The battle was anit-climatic at best...it would have been better if both of them would have got a ribbon...
    Why acted Banette so fuzzy in the sudden death mode? A few attacks and it (nya, the points) was down...even the music were boring

    I was never a squritle basher and I the bashing/whining after the first BF contest episodes was getting on my nerves, but this time, squirtle really got on MY nerves....

    It was always emphazied in the anime that water conducts electricity and yet that bubble attack could beat a thunder? At least it wasn´t water gun...

    And, I know this is the anime, but I still wonder why nobody has said this yet:
    why could squirtle tackle banette? Skitty wasn´t able to tackle Duscopls...

    I was gonna say that too, but I think I recall Eneko was able to hit Samayouru with a physical attack at least once (contradicting what Masato told Satoshi the previous episode about using normal attacks). Come to think of it, maybe I should have brought it up afterall. Though ghosts rarely appear, AG seems to have done a good job in bringing up the fact that normal attacks are ineffective against them (Kimimaro's Samayouru, Kikuko's Gengar), and yet, all the sudden, that little bas****'s able to constantly pummel Jupetta with Tackle and Rapid Spin.

    Glalie also used Headbutt against Katie's Misdreavous in the Hoenn league and it connected. So no, Squirtle is not the first Pokemon to do a physical attack against a ghost poke.

    CyberCubed beat me to it. Alas.

    It seems like ghost pokemon need some reaction time to phase through attacks. Agatha's Gengar was able to avoid Pikachu's Quick Attack, but was unable to dodge Iron Tail moments later because of the pace of the battle. Jessie was keeping Banette in a very aggressive state, and the creative use of Rapid Spin left it unprepared for a tackle.

    It also depends on the ghost. From what we've seen in the anime, it seems that the Gastly line is almost always in at least a somewhat gaseous form, making it easier for them to phase through Normal attacks. Some other ghosts may have to make a conscious effort to go intangible, so Normal attacks could work against them given the right circumstances.

    Just an educated theory.

    Comments for this episode.

    Wow, great seeing a normal coloured Noctowl. Thats rare.

    Whats even more rare is Brock using Foretress, see you in another 20 episodes

    I wish they'd stop using different animators with Harley. Sometimes he looks like a woman, sometimes he looks like an evil man which is what he is.

    So tell me, what was Harley up to by setting Ash and Brock and Max up by trapping them in the Baloon? How would that prevent May from winning?

    What was the attack Bannete was using on Squirtle? Yanno, when it was just bashing it aimlessly?

    Woah, wierd win. First time their was a tie. But May pulled it off.

    What? No Harley roaring in anger about Mays win?

    Nice Episode, no Tanne though T_T, always the GF though.

    As stated before there have been numerous of other times that characters pokemon pull threw. Grovyle and Charizard have even done it a couple times. Remember in the pacifidlog contest when Skitty overpowered Houndooms flamethrower with blizzard. I didnt hear many complaints about that. This episode was kinda fun.

    If you'd bothered to read the quote just a few posts above yours, you would have seen that it was Frustration.

    I try not to read the whole thread before watching the episode. I don't want everything spoiled.
