    That's a good episode 'cause Gary makes an appearance and suspense was brought on with the part at the end.

    I could never figure out why Blaine had Rhydon in his team if he is meant to be a Fire Pokemon Specialist. But the Magmar Introduction was one of the better introductions in the series.

    I always wondered that aswell, it never used any Fire type moves either....

    In "Bad To The Bone" the trainer there had a Volcano Badge aswell because you saw the battle in the flashback with his Marowak.

    I think it was because Rhydon can withstand the heat of the volcano; even if it fell in the lava pool...yikes!O_O;

    i just don't get why they change Blaine's looks. i mean he suppose to has small sunglasses, bald head with no hair and big white moustaste and a dress in a lab coat but the change him 180 degree.

    yeah, but i really prefer the way he looks here, not only him but all the gym leaders!!!

    i think he has a Rhydon cos all his pkmns are from volcano (and Rhydon can be found there, in cartoon), as you see, he can´t have a Rapidash or something like that

    this episode made me laugh and made me confused like how could Ninetails beat Squirtle with a fire spin attack?

    I think Blaine is definitely one of the more interesting gym leaders Ash has faced. Their battle in this episode and "Volcanic Panic" is much more like the gym battles of later years, including Ash and Blaine's battle taking place over more than one episode. Blaine is also interesting as a person, considering we see him as an odd hippie here but he proved to be quite a tough battler.

    Yeah, I think Blaine is one of my favorite gym leaders too. I just think he's a funny guy.

    I liked the end of the episode where it seemed like Pikachu fell over.

    Fire Blast looked awesome.

    This is the first episode where they had a certain music score. It seemed to fit the fiery battle Ash and Blaine were having. They brought it back when Zippo was fighting Pikachu I think, and it worked well IMO, but now they use it over and over again, even when the situation isn't intense enough for the music.

    A really cool debut for Magmar (and Ninetaes and Rhydon, if I'm right?) It was definitely the first major role. I loved this episode and the suspense of it. And Charizard's sudden use after so many episodes of just not appearing was really cool too.
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    I liked this episode , it was great. I didn't think Ash would win. I was also wondering what was going to happen to pikachu was he going to fall in the lava or would he pull through somehow.

    Wierd, in this episode Ninetales defeated Squirtle with Fire Spin but the flashback in the next episode said that it was Ember.

    Really funny episode, especially with the riddles.

    I've just watched this again and I've realized that this is one of the few episodes which has japanese culture influences. This is shown with gary when he and his "squad" ar in a hotel. They are wearing what seems to be japanese clothing, eating japanese food, and the the pokemon are dresses in kimoos.

    Gary really went cocky in this ep towards Ash & Co (especially in the hotel scene). Glad he got what he deserved later on and what's even sad is that he didn't see it coming.

    Blaine was kool as the Hippie guy. Lol that Jigglypuff got Gary. Anyway Ninetales seemed way over powered to me. I mean taking out Squirtle with Fire Spin was really dumb

    A OK episode. I don't get why Blaine would have a Rhydon.

    Now that I think of it, that does seem odd that Blaine would have a rhydon. If he wanted to have a non-fire pokemon to throw off an opponent, he should have gotten one who wasn't just as weak to water and ground moves as his fire types are. I can't think who he might have had in its place, though.

    I don't know why Blaine has a Rhydon in his team, Rhydon is not fire-type and I don't think it can do any fire-type moves.

    Also, I found it strange how Ninetale's fire overpowered Squirtle's water gun. I always thought water stops fire.

    Saidon may not be a fire type, but his rock-hard skin is good for not only withstanding the gym being in a volcano, but it also allows Katsura to get an edge over fire types that trainers might use to adapt to the area. Recall how he swapped Kyuukon for Saidon as soon as Satoshi sent in Lizardon?

    Well in this case, Kyuukon's Fire Spin was far stronger then Zenigame's Water Gun. As a result, the intense heat caused the water to warm it into steam and render it useless.


    Now for some noteworthy stuff to point out...

    ~ Kyuukon kicking Zenigame's butt.
    ~ Shigeru getting the Purin treatment again. XD
    ~ AIM FOR THE HORN!!11!1
    ~ Shigeru: "Even your Pikachu feels sorry for you, I've never seen anything so pathetic!"
    Kasumi: Have you tried a mirror?
    ~ Satoshi and Takeshi seeing Kasumi in a towel. That would had made me scream too. O_o
    ~ Boober's introduction: FREAKIN AWESOME. That music nicely added to it.

    "Please don't look at me that way, I'm a very shy little girl!"

    Anyone think this episode would've been banned because of the bath scene in today's censorship laws?
