I just saw this episode for the first time in many years on Boomerang the other night. Great memories. I think this was one of the first episodes I saw on TV, because I had rented the videos to see the episodes I had missed. It was nice seeing Ponyta & Rapidash get some screen time, as this was pretty much the only time they received it (besides cameos). It's funny how 4Kids forgot to remove Zenigame & Metadogasu saying their names. Did anybody notice that the Nidorina that got hit by the Tauros was a Nidorino at the beginning of the race? That's one of my favorite mistakes of all time.
