After watching this episode recently, I must saw that it was actually pretty good. Seeing Gary lose before the fourth round was a shocker, considering how Gary sometimes taunted Ash. Jeanette with her cheering squad was diffetent than Mandy. Bulbasaur owned the first two and put up quite the effort. That Bellsprout however, that was an exhibition of hilarity and domination. Muk appearing and just absorbing blows also had me laughing quite loudly.
9/10 because Gary lost ( wanted Ash v. Gary in the top 16, but whatever).
