    Considering your first argument, I have to agree ,especially after I´ve watched this episode for the second time. I´m quite convinced there wasn´t meant to be a clear winner. Anyways, we´ll just have to like it or lump it!

    But I disagree with you when it comes to your second argument:
    During Ash´s battle in the Battle Factory with Charizard against Articuno, it was stated that ice-type didn´t do any damage to fire -type Pokemon! Well, whereas this again contradicts the Orange episode when a Poliwrath actually froze Charizard...hmmm, weird..

    Nevertheless, a great episode which ,apart from the weird battle, was again a pleasure to watch !

    I think this proves that some stupid filler episodes (Bibarel and this one come to mind) are somewhat better when you see them. However, I do think this one is better then the Johto one.
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    I find this episode was far from boring. It's nothing compared to the Bibarel and Probopass one, which are definitely the worst fillers so far in this region.

    I have to agree here about the Bibarel episode, It was the only episode I didn't watch fully.

    This one wasn't so bad, Dawn's friend is butt ugly though >_>

    The episode with the cake making Pikachu from early DP was by far the worst filler so far this saga.

    God that episode sucked.

    True there, although I think the Probopass episode comes extremely close.

    I loved this episode--truth be told--only because I think Swinub are so kawaii~

    Well, to me it was bad, but it wasn't boring to say the least. Yes, it is one of those bad fillers, but it isn't near to the "worst" category.

    Should this episode really be considered a filler, or a foreshadowing episode?

    Frankly, I can´t understand at all why this episode repelled you so much.
    The plot was really decent and you just had to fancy all those hilarious moments, especially Team Rocket´s sayings.

    As I`ve already mentioned, the battle showed weak spots but all the other scenes were worth being watched.

    I myself felt totally joyful about this "filler" (I hate this word as it sounds so pejorative and can´t be applied to this sucessfull episode at all)

    Let's not forget who was dubbing the show at the time...

    Took me a little while to figure out which episode you were referring to; Cooking a Sweet Story.

    Personally, I didn't think it was that bad. Sure, many predictable things happen, but I found some comedy involved. Though, if one can think that somehow Team Rocket is involved with the "leak", then well the rest isn't nearly as fun. Of course, the overused "hot/cold" technique seemed a bit out of place.

    You know something, after seeing this episode, it's quite official: we're never going to find out why Kenny/Leona calls Dawn Dede.

    And another thing, Badabing badaboom, it's-a me Mario! We know this thing is made by Nintendo, but this is just too much.

    Though, I did find the short story-esque thing rather entertaining.

    At least next episode's supposed to be better.

    I just saw this episode again and well this episode was okay for the most part. I enjoyed the whole chemistry between Leona and Dawn. But of course, I still think that it wasn't as great as the first hot spring episode involving three Swinub. So there. Just saying. And thanks to that stupid robot of Team Rocket's I spent a majority of yesterday shouting out "Badabing Badaboom."

    Speaking of the robot, did it say anything in the Japanese version?

    Not the best episode, but at least we got the recurring joke again of Dawn refusing to elaborate on the "DeeDee" nickname. The flashback to the past with Dawn and her friend were cute too.

    ecspecially the part where they beat up that bully and next thing you know their foot is on top of him. Overall a decent filler.

    I think it was cute that Dawn has this friend in the middle of nowhere - it makes perfect sense....

    I'm thinking that the Dee-Dee nickname will continue for a long time until someone explains it.

    Although I like how Ash had the guts to ask though.

    So since Leona said she wold go back to gym battles, would she be considered a legitamit rival? She has had no reconition, and Ash already has a few rivals. Or will she be a another "Johto Rival" that Ash has nevvr seen again?

    I'm hoping they bring her back in the Sinnoh League with a full variety of pokemon, and not just Swinub/Piloswine/Mamoswine.

    Yeah, the Swinub were cute. About Leona, I'd love to see her in the league and I can see her with a lot of Ground- and Ice-type Pok&#233;mon.

    The episode was great, I loved Team Rocket's motto about juvenile court. Hilarious!
