Now that I got to see the episode in action, I can't really say I'm impressed. The battle could have been so much better, but all the action seemed... off. Perhaps it was this episode's animation team, but my god. Everything seemed slightly misshapened, not enough to be blantantly obvious, but still enough to see... not right. I do enjoy the fact that Sceptile kicked that fire chicken's butt, and I will insist that only plot forced it into Overgrow. That, or those Blaze Kicks hurt a lot more than it seemed.
Like I said before, I'm glad Sceptile started using that bush of his, but it just seemed so rigid.
