    Definitely. I don't understand why Ash's 2nd match in the Indigo League was handled as an afterthought.

    My favorite scene from here was when Ash was out looking for the Pokemon Center and how he ended up being tricked by the fake one.

    At least they showed part of the battle...

    I thought that Zenigame versus Nidorino, and Satoshi's second Sekiei League match as a whole, deserved to be longer. I liked when we saw Shigeru observing it, even though he was a jerk as usual. The Rocket-dan's plot seemed like a waste of time, but at least Pikachu versus Windie was a treat.

    Poor Ash, getting scammed by TR right when he needed to heal his Pokemon. I didn't like seeing two Indigo League matches here though. Each one should have had its own episode. :/

    I agree with that, tho I'm guessing that since the Kanto league itself was rushed, that Ash's second and third battles simply had to be shortened to make room for other subplots. ^^

    Eh, there would've been plenty of time for two whole Ash-centric League battles here if the TR thing hadn't occurred. That's what wasted the most time..

    KidsWB made this episode look really interesting when they showed Gary commenting on how Ash's victories are going to his head, and Team Rocket saying they finally captured Pikachu. I remember getting really excited about seeing this episode, and then when I saw Team Rocket stealing Pikachu and getting rescued in mere seconds by Onix, I thought that was such a cop-out.

    Kingler vs. Cloyster was good, though not as intense as Pikachu vs. Arcanine. I liked how Pikachu made smart use of the melted ice and water to electrocute the opponent's Arcanine.

    It made me cackle to see Arcanine's Fire Blast spammage backfire. His trainer had no idea how badly he messed up until Pikachu took advantage of the field.

    Yea I guess it's true that Team Rocket's whole fake Pokemon Center plan here was kind of unnecessary in hindsight since it didn't serve a major purpose. It was still fun to see Team Rocket here however, although I wish that they had just made cameos.

    Poor Ash got side-tracked by the TRio here, although I liked how we saw him out on the town and how the parade played that Viridian City song. Ash vs. the Arcanine dude was fun in that the terrain melted.
