    AJ's fake accent got on my nerves as well as his training methods. Honestly this episode feels kind of pointless because (1) AJ didn't change his methods, (2) Ash didn't learn anything, and (3) AJ never returned so that either of those things could happen.

    The non-TR related events could be summed up like this

    True enough, but he did show that he cared for his Pokemon no matter how harsh his training was. Ash interfering and lecturing A.J. annoyed me since he was acting high and mighty.

    I can see why Ash's holier than thou approach might've seemed meddling but AJ seemed so full of himself, so I didn't mind that Ash was giving him grief for his training methods.

    Ash was getting a big ego himself so AJ being even more arrogant was just karma.

    Yea Ash was kind of getting a big head here just cuz he had won ten battles and gotten two gym badges. This episode was such a humbling experience for him.

    A.J. seemed strict with his Sandshrew but I was relieved when we saw that he did care about his Pokemon and wasn't cold-hearted.

    I'll be blunt and say that I detested Akira. Not because he and Sand defeated Satoshi and Pikachu, but because he really did seem excessively cruel while he was training his Pokemon. He was like a fitness instructor and lion tamer all at once, but the effect made Akira seem like a Shinji prototype.

    I thought this was a great episodee. I didn't like how A.J. treated his Pokemon, but they were strong. I thought it was funny when Team Rocket stole Sandshrew instead of Pikachu.

    I guess AJ achieved his 100 win streak but his last win was against Team Rocket iirc so it kind of takes that accomplishment away imo lol. Anyways it's a shame we don't see him again; I would have loved to see him at the Indigo League.

    Yup. He was an *** in my opinion, but I do wish he could've re-battled Ash.

    Eh, AJ is probably the first COTD so far that I couldn't stand at all. Team Rocket pretty much saved this episode for me, especially when they were rolling around in a red ball and accidentally stole Sandshrew.

    I found it funny how they mistook Sandshrew for Pikachu and snatched him up like that.
