i love to watch gym battles in the episodes, they are very exciting.
I liked the idea of a challenge and not a battle.
One of my favorite gyms was the Mikan Island Gym since it still specializes in Water types.
Good episode introducing the Orange Crew. 9/10

This episode was cool. All 3 of the tests were cool, and definitely gave a different version of a gym battle than we were used to at the time. The race strategy was really cool as well. Glad Ash won in the end.
To me, it felt like this first Gym match was just a bit too easy and was a bit too short.
It could've been a little longer.
However, it is neat to see gym matches done in a different style than the usual first-trainer-to-faint-the-leaders-pokemon-first style. Truly unique!
Also, I personally liked what Seadras voice sounded like. It was really adorable!

I liked how this episode showed what Gym battles in the Orange Islands are like. The Gym "battle" in this episode was interesting because it was very different from Ash's battles in Kanto. However, the Gym was a little weird. I mean, being able to shoot cans with water proves your Pokemon are strong enough for the League because...?
The part at the beginning when Ash phoned Prof. Oak was funny, because Tracey was *blushing*. Creepy.
Thanks to aclover for the trainer card
I always liked the Orange Islands' gym battles because of their uniquness. The shooting cans was a silly challenge though to be honest. Sissy's little brother was pretty annoying though. With Seadra and Blastoise though, I would've liked to see a traditional gym battle.
Cissy's gym seems a little unfair, seeing as clearly her Pokemon have been specifically trained for shooting targets, whereas some trainers might literally have to capture a new water type simply to be able to compete. Not cool.
I like how the Gym battles are different, but I agree that the activities are a bit unfair seeing as the Gym Leader has an obvious advantage. This episode, in particular, was one of my favourites because I just loved the surf race. It was smart of Ash to change the conditions with Ice Beam.
However, some necessities are unfair. Cissy requiring someone to have two Water types, which one of them needs to be able to Surf.
Someone who challenges Danny has to climb a mountain first. A little unfair, because someone who does not have the physical abilities to climb a mountain, but the Pokemon and the skill to complete the challenge is unable to take part.
I do think that the challenges from Rudy and Luana are fair.
The Gym battles in the Orange Islands were really interesting!. Nice to see that Ash won.

This battle was so cool. Especially when Ash rode on Lapras. I love those kind of races. Which made me love Pokemon Heroes so much. I hope we see more races later on.
