I liked this episode because Ash lost. It's just more entertaining when he loses instead of making up dumb strategies on the spot and miraculously winning due to some kind of fluke. I'm also amused that Pikachu got KO'd by a non-damaging attack, and that he sent Turtwig in even knowing Cranidos had Flamethrower. Hurrrrr. That's what he gets for not using Staravia and making it depressed.
