    I have this episode on VHS, and I still chuckle at Ash saying: the answer is an electric blanket in a fridge!
    Some call it hell; it's actually called facing my Bronzong.

    The riddles in this episode were pretty amusing. I would've liked some more of the episode to be spent on exploring the city more but I guess it needed to be made way to see Ash get beaten down in a battle. It's funny how strong Magmar seemed in it's debut but it never seemed to carry it beyond this episode any of its intimidation. A pretty good episode.

    The riddles in this episode were funny, almost as funny as Blaine's wig. When it got to the actual battle though, I think the producers made it all seem a little bit extreme. He may be a fire Gym Leader, but to actually battle with lava underneath?!! It did, however, make Magmar's introduction that much more epic. And I agree that Blaine shouldn't have had a Rhydon. It was a little bit random. And it seems that Lightning Rod works in a completely opposite way to the games.

    Pros:
    - "Pikachu, aim for the horn!" Anime not working like the games, which is a very good thing.
    - Blaine's riddles.
    - Magmar coming from down the volcano.
    - Gary teasing Ashyboy.
    - Misty being (probably) naked (aside from her towel), and screaming "DON'T WATCH" to Ash and Brock.

    The riddles were hilarious, Misty is so smart to know what all the riddles meant!

    Misty solving all of the riddles was cool. Blaine was a little offputting, I have to say. He seemed like Clay (Unova) a little bit in the way of being mean during the Gym Battle. Squirtl being taken out by a single Fire Spin ticked me off. I don't care if it Nintales' strongest move or not, Squirtle is a Water Type. -_- Pikachu should not ahve been able to take out Rhydon; especially since LightningRod is supposed to stop Electric Attacks, not knock it out...

    This episode was great if only because of dub Blaine. He was really fun.

    Hhaah, Blaine and his riddles were amazing. I would go as far to say that Blaine is without a doubt, the most strongest Gym leader in Kanto. His Pokémon and their capabilities were superb and without a doubt - proven to be in excellent condition. I always loved the Japanese influence in this episode too and Gary's appearance was interesting too.

    Misty figuring out those riddles was pretty funny since Ash had absolutely no clue

    I like Blaine. In games, I really don't care too much for him. But, his Ninetales is powerful, KO'ing Squirtle with one Fire Spin. And Ash annoyed me when he didn't want to give up when Brock told him to.

    In this episode, Ash and other finally reached Cinnabar Island.....and Gary was there too. As usual, he's trying to put down Ash by saying that there's no gym in Cinnabar Island, but he was so wrong.
    Blaine's Riddles were random and tricky, but I liked how Misty figured them out and they found out Blaine's Secret Gym. The Gym arena itself was cool, it was suspended over the Cinnabar Island Volcano. The battle between Ash and Blaine was okay, but didn't make sense to me. Squirtle got knocked out too fast! He's a Water-Type Pokémon, so I expected it to put up a good battle. Pikachu defeating Rhydon by hitting it's horn with Thunderbolt......was just meh! How in the world Blaine's highly experienced Rhydon got knocked out by just one Thunderbolt in the horn? Anyways, Blaine's Magmar was cool and it's Fire Blast at the end was epic! It ended the episode on a Cillfhanger.

    Overall this was a good episode and a good way to introduce Blaine in the anime, but the battles in this episode were somewhat lackluster.
