    So right after Ash's pathetic battle against Richie, Richie goes and loses? Haha, how the mighty have fallen! I wish we had seen his whole battle though, and not just pieces of it. I guess they wanted to showcase more of Ash and Richie since this was their farewell episode, so they ignored the Pokemon battles. Ash going to the League stadium one last time really touched me. It meant he hadn't given up on his dream. 9/10 for the good ending.

    Ritchie was my favorite league rival before the awesome Tyson came about, he was actually the one who inspired me to nickname all my pokemon. This battle was so sad on Ash's part because Charizard wouldn't listen to him, I'm glad he's become a much better trainer since then.

    Haha it's funny to me how I received the same message as you did. Ash didn't give up. I wish they had shown more of Ritchie's last battle too, but oh well.

    A decent episode. It sucks that Ash only got to the top 16. But i guess that's a good start considering it was his first league. I liked Ritchie's character and the end of this episode was great. Pikachu & Sparky working together made me smile

    9/10 is what I give it overall.

    Ash had every right to be upset about losing. His Pokemon were no where near full strength thanks to Team Rocket and of course Charizard was being a jerk. I really think Ash would have won if his Pokemon were at full strength and he could have used Pidgeotto instead of Jerk-a-zard.

    This was an ok episode. Ash definitely learned a lesson about taking a loss and just move on. He was moping around at 1st and going off on the others for awhile, which definitely wasn't a smart thing to do. I'm glad he finally understood, and after this Pokemon League, he was a lot better after every league loss in other regions. The closing ceremonies were very cool.

    30/100

    I was glad to see Ritchie lose the next battle, since I was mad that he beat Ash (this aired when I thought Ash was cool xD).

    I liked the part where they were holding the closing ceremony or whatever for the Pokemon League. I always liked watching all the participants walk out onto the field at the same time with their Pokemon. It reminds me of the Olympics.
    I don't think it said who won the league, but I wish it did. :/

    I didn't really like how Ash and Ritchie were still friends at the end of the episode...because if I were Ash, I would probably still be furious for losing to Ritchie!

    People need to get off of Ash's balls about getting angry. Ash has lost three leagues after that for over 10 years and he hasn't cried or complained about any of his league loses since. If it were me, I'd be *****in' right about now.

    My ideal battle ever!

    I agree that Team Rocket felt even more like forced filler than usual. This episode wasn't centered around one of their schemes; they just happened to get in the way while Ash was recuperating from his League experience. This is one of the few episodes I watched the whole way through (most of this season I watched while gaming), but as the final episode of the Indigo League it plainly shows how played-out the Team Rocket shtick became during the first season. I mean, how many times have we seen Team Rocket dig a pit, capture Pikachu in an electrically resistant whatever, then battle with Weezing and Arbok only to get owned by their own Smog and some sort of fire attack that blows them up. Approximately...infinite times. Still, I guess the writers had to use Team Rocket as this episode's comedic portion, but I don't think it was necessary.

    Ahh this episode is a classic, Truely magical but I'm glad Ritchie didn't win the league. I didn't want him to be ahead of Ash.

    why would ash, knowing charizard still will not obey him, use it in a pokemon league match?


    Lost my Platinum, so that's not good. On the other hand, I have heartgold and my FC is:

    ^ The writers needed him to lose. Regardless of what Pokémon he sent out (Muk, Kingler, a Mewtwo, a Dragonite, an Onix, etc) he was going to lose that match. It just made more sense with Charizard since it wouldn't obey him.

    Watching Ritchie lose was the highlight of the episode. It gets a 10/10 just for that. I'm reminded about how bad the extended version of the Pokémon theme sucked though. It just isn't any good.

    It's Fearow!
    Although I did love seeing Ash lose, I did feel a bit sorry for him. His argument with Misty after was quite funny. I actually quite wanted Ritchie to win the competition, so I didn't like when he lost. But he was completely useless against that Ivysaur. Him and Ash will never be Pokémon masters... ¬¬
    Anyway this episode was quite boring until Team Rocket showed up. They made it funny as usual, and the cage thing was actually quite smart for Ash. The blast off in this episode was actually great! As were the highlights at the end of the episode!

    Good to see Ritchie lose, purely because I like Ivysaur and because I think Ivysaur is awesome. Ritchie didn't deserve to win and he didn't. It was funny to see Ash cry about losing like he was Dawn losing in a contest. And then Misty criticizing him and Professor Oak agreeing, it's just like real life. However, a pity that the final battle wasn't shown. Because of that, 9/10 and not 10/10.

    Ash coud have lost to anyone else than his other half. But I'm glad he lost too. However, it was Ash's first league win, and I actually felt sorry for him. But this was back when I was eleven.

    However, the arguement was dumb. Businesses could have been mind to avoid blow ups. And his mom was right there. If there was anyone to talk to him, she or Professor Oak could have. I would have gotten mad too.

    I agree. Misty shouldn't have waited a little longer to talk to him. If you are in a league participating for the first time and lose, it would be easy to get emotional especially being a 10 year old. I don't care how much or how little training you get done.

    A very heartwarming episode, I like how Ash learns a lesson in this episode. I'm glad Ritchie lost after battling Ash. I really wanted to see who won the Indigo league but that of course will never be revealed lol.

    Well, I really enjoyed the ending of this League. They ended this whole entire Indigo League series gracefully. For the rest was depressive while simultaneous cocky ash hilarious to watch.

    Poor Ash! At least losing the other Leagues was easier for you

    Thank you Misty and Professor Oak. I wish he had told Ash this earlier, but I guess since it was part of Ash's training, he couldn't have. But, it sucks that Ritchie lost. It sucks that Sparky had to pay the price for it.

    After getting eliminated from the Indigo League, Ash was very upset. Misty decideds to talk to him to make him feel better,(Why she? Why not Pro. Oak or Delia?)so she enters Ash's room and asks him if he wants to go on a.....walk with her?? Ash refuses and tells her go by herself, so Misty gets mad. Then she starts a stupid argument with Ash. Seriously Misty? That's how you cheer up a depressed person? Well, she should've left him alone instead of being a jerk and yelling at him. It's Ash's first(and most embarrassing) League lose, so He has every right to upset.
    I'm glad Ritchi got eliminated from the Indigo League too, I'd be so pissed if he won the League.

    The only good part of this episode was where Ash remembering his League matches and the Pokémon theme song was playing in the background. To me, it's a nostalgic moment.
