    Part two of the Pokemon League!
    Well not really as the battle was short though. I did really find humorous of Team Rocket posing as double nurse Joy. But I didn't like the way that Team Rocket just revealed themselves whenever they kept on hearing the word "trouble".

    The first battle was very short, i think they little hurry there. the second was better.

    Kinda mad that we didn't see a full battle in the Rock field. It started out in the last match-up...

    Great episode, I loved that Kingler took out Cloyster with a few hits. It was really the superstar of this tournament.

    As for Pikachu versus Arcanine, it was epic with Pikachu skiing past using it's speed. 10/10

    I remember this episode just because of the scene of Pika vs Arcanine. All in all this league was great because of entirety.. Don't take battles like Nidorino vs Squirtle for granted! it's part of the whole league. Parts like Ash strugling to get back at the league in time to beat richie that stuff, that made this league awesome.. Hoenn just had the fighting.. which became boring.. really.. though I'm not saying the battles were crap.

    This episode also had Brock taking care of Ash in one way or another, first his balls, then his pikachu.. because if Brock didn't scream 'dive'.. Pikachu would've had a Fire Blast to it's face.. Though I find it funny that when Pikachu resurfaced.. that small Arcanine had no battling spirit left.. It looked like a puppy xD

    It'd be really nice if America did something like Japan's pokemon sunday where they show an hour of old episodes. Just an hour of old pokemon episodes every sunday starting with the first season.

    One of pikachu's best old school wins! It was pretty intimidated by arcanine at first.

    Not a bad episode, it's just it would been better to see a full battle in each field (Rock and Ice). Having them wandering around looking for a pokemon center was fun though, like when Jessie and James show themselves Brock and Ash get scolded by Misty for fooling around instead of getting Pikachu back.

    There were many breaks in this episode .. But I especially loved the battles. Kingler was pretty strong on its own, and his loss to Arcanine was pretty surprised due to its type advantage.
    Finally Ash used a smart strategy with the Water-Electric attack. From now on he became smarter.

    Found the entire ZOMG WATER USE ELECTRIC idiotic. It's on ICE. Which is very bad at leading electricity. Wouldn't have annoyed me so much if it wasn't the big reason Ash won, and it was shouted out.

    Also, the earlier match(with the nidorino).

    There is a big miss in it.

    Both trainers are down two- but Ash's lamp shows that Ash had two mons left and one fainted- if this was the case, Nidorino should already have been out and have floored a mon. Instead Ash's second Pokémon seems to have fainted completely on it's own whim, since the opponents pokemon was already considered beaten.

    This was a great episode. I didn't however like the fact that not all of the 2 battles was shown... I hate when they do that, battles should always be shown fully! The battle between Arcanine and Pikachu was the best battle yet!

    This was an okay episode. It was a little lame how they didn't show Ash's two battles in full. With the battle against the Nidorino guy, I was confused and thought they had skipped part of the battle or something (guess I wasn't paying attention at the beginning). I wish they would have at least given the Nidorino trainer a name. :/

    I did like the parts where Togepi pulled on the table cloth in that restaraunt and how they portrayed Brock falling in love with Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny in this episode. Those were quite funny. xD

    Yeah, the battles in this episode weren't that great since they were both pretty short. The whole middle prtion of the episode felt more like a huge filler than anything else to be honest. Out of the two battles, the best was clearly the Arcanine match. I did like Jessie and James struggling to not say their motto though.

    This is an awesome episode. Ash crying and saying "Ik heb geen geld!" (Dutch for "I don't have any money!") in the resteaurant was awesome, and he thought the waitress was a fan of him. Also, James dressed as a doctor was great in this episode. However, I would have liked to see more of the two league battles Ash had.

    It's Koffing!
    Team Rocket in bins, haha. I think Jessie made a very good Nurse Joy.
    How would battling make the Trainer hungry anyway? It's the Pokémon that does all the work.
    Anyway this episode was quite boring seeing as the two battles were so short. They mention hit points though. o: The Arcanine battle was fun, although that wasn't a Dragon Rage, it was a Twister. ¬¬

    It was a really nice episode, but I really can't understand how Pikachu managed to zap the Arcanine; he was on ice, not on water.

    I liked this match but I didn't like on how Misty and Brock was helping him.

    I did enjoyed this episode, solely on the fact that we can see some of Ash's beginner strategies and tactics. While perhaps this episode was a little bit weaker than the previous and next episode, I can't help but to cheer for both Gary and Ash lol.

    I love this episode, I was happy that Ash won. Seeing Jessie call Ash by his actual name kinda surprised me because she's always called him "twerp"

    I really didn't remember this episode that much. Expect for Pikachu vs Arcanine. It seemed that they used basic Pokemon for this battle. But, Kingler vs Cloyster was good.

    This episode disappointed me. Instead of focusing on Ash's full battle in the Rock Field, it's mostly foscued on Team Rocket's another stupid attempt of stealing Pikachu. I don't like it when the writers put episodes like this in the middle of a League arc.

    Oh well, at least Ash's third round match in the Ice Field was shown. Kingler vs. Cloyster and Pikachu vs. Arcanine was good.....but the battles were too short, so I didn't enjoy them.

    I agree that that first battle was too short. The second was better.

    I got to say, it has to hurt a Cloyster a lot to have it's outer shell actually crack like that.

    Aside from Ash's battles, I liked seeing him and the others roam around at night looking for a Pokemon Center here. I didn't care for Team Rocket's fake Pokemon Center scheme, but the middle part of this episode served its role as a slight breather between the back-to-back League battles at the very least.
