    Wow Gary having ten badges here really impressed me and I liked how we saw him battle Giovanni and almost win until Mewtwo was used. Giovanni not even wanting Togepi was also interesting. ^^

    Okay so Ash battling Jessie and James for his final Badge was a nice twist, but I wonder why the writer's didn't make Ash face Giovanni instead.

    Looks like the Satoshi-tachi got back to Tokiwa City pretty fast. When Shigeru showed Satoshi his ten badges, I was impressed that he had achieved so much. Him versus Sakaki's Mewtwo actually made me feel bad for Shigeru since he lost so unfairly, and Sakaki not wanting Togepy made me snicker.

    Hmmm well even if Giovanni hadn't left the Viridian gym, I figure that Giovanni vs Ash would've ended with Ash losing. So I suppose that the writers just took the easy way out by having Ash defeat Team Rocket.

    He was dumb for that honestly lol. He didn't realize how rare Togepi was, so he missed out on a huge treasure.

    Liked the episode. It was funny to see Ash getting blocked by the guards. Mewtwo appearing was very mysterious. I loved how Ash refused to give up despite being shocked repeatedly.

    It's a shame that we only saw him briefly with his armor on, though it was hilarious to see Gary getting wrecked by Mewtwo's powers so easily.~

    It wasn't Giovanni's fault tho. Togepi was a newly discovered pokemon around the time that Jessie and James showed it to him, so he couldn't have known that Togepi was special. Togepi looked so harmless and babyish any ways hee hee. ^^;

    But the fact that he hadn't seen a Togepi before is exactly why he should've known that it was rare, hence why he should've kept it. :/

    Hmmm well I guess that is true. Still Togepi was an infant pokemon with not much to offer Giovanni any ways, so him rejecting it made sense. He didn't know that Togepi would eventually gain strong Metronome powers.

    Eh, I guess. Giovanni's whole role here seemed wasted, though. He swept Gary in a few seconds, then left suddenly. Did we even find out what the emergency was?

    I loved seeing Mewtwo cameos in this episode especially during the battle with Gary. Ash beating Team Rocket for the earth badge was nice too, but somewhat annoying.

    We didn't as far as I remember, tho since he took Mewtwo with him when he left the gym, I kind of assumed that it was to catch the herd of stampeding Tauros that we saw Mewtwo battle in the first film.

    That would be awesome continuity, but it seems like we'll never know for sure. I would have loved to see Giovanni's reaction to the demolished Viridian Gym, though.

    I would've definitely preferred to see Satoshi and Sakaki battle in this episode instead of watching the small skirmish between the Rocket-dan trio and Satoshi. It was a fun match in all honesty, but the fact that Satoshi was so close to finally meeting Sakaki yet ended up missing him completely was irritating.

    I didn't see why Gary needed to gloat about his ten badges since he didn't even need the two extra ones. I was secretly happy when Giovanni beat him because Gary needed the humiliation.

    Shigeru always had a haughty demeanor during the Kanto saga, so him bragging fit with what we knew about his character. Even I have to admit that him having ten Gym Badges was impressive, however.
