I liked evry minute of this episode, untill the theme song was played at the end, then I was like barf....
I don't particullarly like it when they put theme songs as battle music, unless it actually works, and Im sorry but that just does not work, I actually had to focus harder to hear what roark was saying.
but I still liked pikachus little samurai pose, croagunk killing jessie (jk) and rampardos himself, rampardos is cool, but also adorable in some poses, especially when rampardos uses flamethrower while sitting comfortably on the ground, just seeing that made me want to put one in my pearl version. aipom was good as always.
and does geodude still have teeth, I remember he ha teeth in shinji's battle but I don't remember if he did in this one ah well.
roark talking about comic books made me laugh too.
the only beef I had other than the theme song, was roarks obsessive need to explain evry move that happened in the battle instead of brock, I mean I don't mind if the sideline people are talkative, but the actuall battler seriously, tone down the talking and start battiling.
Rampardos is now my all time number 1 favorite rock type, although not that I like that many rock types anyway, but meh.
oh and one last thing, for rampardos being a rock type its tail was rather squishy, when turtwig bit down on it, kinda weird.
