    Ahh...One of my favorite Kanto episodes, mainly cause it featured Charizard. The battle was excellent; and showing to us how strong 'Zard has become since he was a cute little Charmander. Lots of serousness and drama involved with the volcano, and whether Charizard would listen to Ash in this time of crisis. Overall; one of the best Kanto episodes that featured a battle popular with many a fan. 10/10!

    I have to say that this and the one before it is the BEST GYM BATTLE OF ALL TIME. Out of all of the gym battles that Ash has had, this one was the best.

    I agree with you, Lupin.

    This was a superb gym battle, and my favourite one as well. ;D

    I loved it so much I actually bought the DVD! :O

    Charizard vs. Magmar was an excellent match-up, and the battle was plain freakin' awesome.

    I loved the battle, but Charizard's redisobedience really ****** me off.

    Honestly, I didn't like this episode much. The battle was rather short lived. Charizard's random obedience really annoys me. Sure, there was a reason, but I hated it. I thought the first battle was a lot better than this.
    The only part that really caught my attention in the battle was Charizard's fall into the volcano. But, even that was pointles. Charizard has monstrous wings, it couldn't have just fallen like that unless it was on the brink of death. Plus, one Seismic Toss isn't enough to take out a Magmar, animé or ingame. The volcano scene was the redeeming aspect of this episode. That was the only really intense scene, and the only one worth a second glance at.

    Overall rating:
    5.9 out of 10.....
    A rather disappointing Gym Battle. I far prefer the previous one over this. This battle is on par with the pity badges as one of the worst Gym battles I've seen. Then again, Kanto has a knack for crappy Gym Battles.

    I think that this was the first really good gym battle Ash had had up until that point in the series. Although Pikachu was good against raichu in "Electric Shock Showdown" and Charmander and Bulbasaur were effective at the Fuschia City gym, this episode really set the ground work for the battles we'd see later on in Johto and Hoenn, when Ash won gym battles on his own merit using strategy and by thinking outside the box. His battle with Charizard against magmar in this episode was awesome, considering that Charizard was still being disobedient at the time and still roasted Ash at the end of the battle (at least in later days Ash's getting roasted by him was done for comical effect). It was definitely one of the great gym battles.

    Team Rocket was pretty good in this episode too. Of course they caused chaos with their freeze blaster, but at least having to stop the volcano from erupting was effective in getting Charizard to eventually help out and to get the twerps' pokemon working together as a team. I also loved Jigglypuff and Psyduck's cameos.

    This has to be my favourite gym battle ever.It was so full of suspense and it was charizard's best fight.Magmar became a fave pokemon after this.The one thing I wonder about is that how Ash knew how charizard could use seismic toss.Saying that,charizard's seismic toss was never the same after this.The way he took magmar into the air and slammed him into the volcano.Brilliance.

    Right now while I'm going through my tapes again like I do every year, I can't help thinking back to this episode and how it really made the gym battles in the series much more interesting and exciting. Up until this point, with the exception of "Electric Shock Showdown" and "The Ninja Poke-Showdown", the gym battles really... stunk. I mean, really, they weren't that great at all during the first season. I've been watching some of them the past couple of days, and I shake my head at how bad some of them were. Compared to the exciting gym battles of later years- "From Ghost to Ghost", the Clair ones, "Who's Flying Now", the official Norman one, etc.- the first season just was lackluster in its gym battles. Ash got almost all his first season gym badges WAY too easily. At least nowadays he truly earns the badges/symbols/ribbon he earns, by hard work, strategy, learning, and improvising. Gym battles and Frontier battles are much more exciting nowadays. Of course the first two Orange Island gym battles weren't that great either, but they started being pretty consistently good with "Misty Meets Her Match".

    At least this episode, though, really started to show how great they can be. I may not like how Charizard acts like a jerk in the two episodes, but the matches are still amazing to watch. I'd rather watch this gym a hundred times than his battle against Sabrina, one of the cheapest wins ever.

    Sorry I had to rant a bit there, I just felt like letting off some steam. At least I'm coming to his battle against Koga tomorrow.

    This was another one of the Great Charizard Episodes. Seeing as I love Fire, I rented this Tape frequently when I was a Kid. Charizard pwns all, even Magmar!

    What I noticed from the first season gym battles.. is that even if he won them easily he still took a lesson from them.. He learned about type compatibilities on the Pewter city gym, He learned the power of water Pokemon on the Cerulean Gym, He learned that speed could be much more effective than any Powerful electric attack on The eletric gym which I forgot the name of the darn city. He learned emphaty on Celadon, he learned about poison types on Fushia, and the final two din't really have a lesson..


    About this episode, one of the best battles ever!! I was in 9th grade when i first saw this episode, and I remenber everyone talking about this battle at school.. poweful battle.
    And I came for fun..

    The gym battle wasn't too bad and Team Rocket wasn't too nasty when they caused trouble (as always). But the only thing I didn't like was Togepi trying to help out.

    This episode was pretty good. I found it somewhat amusing that Magmar just stood there when Team Rocket shot their ice rockets at him despite his defrosting as well as Team Rocket going ballistic trying to freeze Magmar. I find it weird how Geodude and Onix weren’t bothered by the Water Gun “cool off”. The battle between Magmar and Charizard is my second favorite Kanto gym battle (the first being the battle Ash has for the 8th badge). One reason is that I find it cool how this is the only episode (so far) where an attack (in this case, Fire Blast) is actually caught and thrown away.

    I love the song that plays when they throw rocks in the Volcano, and the one during the first part of the fight.

    Yeah, I love this episode.

    Another excellent episode nice to see Ash win his 7th badge the Volcano Badge, also nice to see Charizard actually listen to Ash for once even if it was for just one battle. Also I liked that the gang had to stop the volcano from erupting and destroying the island which is exactly what happened to Cinnabar island in Gold, Silver, & Crystal.

    I may have found an interesting edit to the dub:

    As some of us know, the Fire Blast attack looks like the kanji character for big. When Charizard deflected it at the start of the match, it changed to the character for medium, and then small as it got higher into the air until it eventually poofed out(accompanied by a shock type sound effect).XD If I remember right, the Fire Blast stayed the same in the dub.

    EDIT: I checked, and the Fire Blast doesn't change shape...forgot to get the SFX out, though.
