    It was cool seeing Mewtwo's cameo when Team Rocket went to Giovanni's place. I also liked seeing Ash's Krabby again, plus Gary had such a huge collection of pokemon which made Ash seem weaker. ^^;

    I don't remember, did we ever see Gary's Kingler before? My favorite part was when we heard how many Pokemon Gary had.

    Yup we saw Gary's Krabby when Ash caught his own Krabby in the 'Mystery at the Lighthouse' episode. It was shown in a tank at Oak's lab. :3

    Thanks I forgot. But did they explain why Gary's Krabby was so huge in the first place while Ash's was mini sized?

    It was good seeing Masara Town again, best of all Okido-hakase and Shigeru as well. I didn't know that Shigeru had caught so many Pokemon, and Okido-hakase's explanation of his daily routine was oddly fascinating to me. I also liked Sakaki's brief cameo when his hideout blow up due to the armored Mewtwo.

    I had this episode on VHS and I remember being so pissed off that Gary and Ash didn't battle, because it was the last episode on the tape and I made my mom buy the tape because I thought they battled in it...

    I liked that Gary had such a large selection of Pokemon in his collection, but I think the writers went overboard by giving him two hundred ha ha. He didn't need multiples of the same Pokemon, so I wonder why he went on such an extreme catching spree.

    Gary catching so many Pokemon was reasonable, though. He obviously wanted variety and catching many of the same kinds of Pokemon gave him that.

    I don't think its size was explained, so my guess is that Gary's Krabby was just bigger to make Ash's Krabby seem weaker by comparison hee hee. Gary's Pokemon tended to seem stronger than Ash's in general in the Kanto saga.

    I liked when we saw TR visit the base and how they saw Mewtwo, but the point of Ash visiting Oak's tiny lab seemed flimsy at best.

    Looking back, I felt that Kasumi was entirely right to show mild annoyance when Okido-hakase asked her and Takeshi to help mend the broken fence. Since Satoshi's Kentauros herd had damaged it, I didn't see why Kasumi and Takeshi needed to help Satoshi with the fixtures.

    Why did Gary even catch 200 Pokemon? All he needed was 6 so his huge collection seemed silly. I loved when we saw TRio witness Giovanni's office explode though.

    Honestly, this episode forever sealed my belief that Gary is and always will be a better trainer than Ash, even after he retired, no one can change my mind.

    The reason, because in this episode it was stated that not only did Gary capture a lot of Pokemon, but he rotated between them AND he came up with strategies both before and during his gym battles.

    Now in this episode Ash stated he doesn't care that he didn't capture many Pokemon since they were all his friends, except at that point he caught Krabby, Muk, and 30 Tauros and never called upon them, effectively breaking that Aesop made worst because it was arguably not the first time the show did that nor the last. I won't go into detail on that because I don't want to sound like I am ranting.

    and yes I am aware that a lot of problems the show suffered over time originated from the original series, but at the time they were arguably tolerable since the show was just starting out .

    Shigeru seemed similar to Shinji in this episode, in that he thought capturing multiples of some Pokemon gave him a higher chance of finding one with good stats.

    This episode felt like a waste of time since Ash didn't need a lecture on Oak's daily habits. When we saw Gary's Doduo I wondered why he even had one when we never see him train his team.
