    Prima should've kept her video game name. I liked seeing Charizard lose control and do his own thing because it showed how bad Ash was at training him. 7.5/10

    Was Prima actually Lorelei? If so she seemed really spacey, but what I liked here was watching Ash get his ego put in check.

    Lol, I still remember Misty's reaction to Prima. I loved that she idolized her. I thought the battle between Ash and Prima was good, but I hated how Ash was acting so cocky.

    Kanna of the Four Heavenly Kings was incredibly mature, so I can see why Kasumi respected her. Satoshi's sudden arrogance made him unbearable, and seeing Kanna stop Lizardon's rampage on the beach must've been humiliating for Satoshi. I liked how we saw Kanna freeze the Rocket-dan with Rougela.

    Prima/Lorelei was kind of condescending to Ash. I get that he was being annoying when he kept challenging her, but she kept lecturing him and treating Ash like he wasn't worth her time.

    She wasn't "condescending", she was just tolerant of him. He was acting like a doofus, so she had to endure his ego. :x

    I never understood why Lorelei was called Prima. Like, in Pokemon Puzzle League for N64 they did call her Lorelei correctly despite having the same voice actress and the same look as in the anime appearance of Prima.

    Kanna was respectful towards Satoshi, unlike his attitude towards her. She may've seemed too preachy at times, but seeing as she was an expert trainer, Satoshi should've taken her wisdom and advice to heart instead of sulking.

    To match the mouth flaps since the name Lorelei had too many syllables.

    When Ash was acting big headed, I wondered if his judgement was off as well since he was dumb enough to use his Charizard against Persian.

    He was being dim tbh. He should have known better than to send out his most defective Pokemon, even against such an ordinary opponent.

    Satoshi was definitely acting carelessly, although him losing control of his Lizardon helped teach him a lesson because it was humbling for him to have Kanna interfere and stop Lizardon's little rampage herself.

    It was too short from my perspective and even tho Ash claimed that he had studied Prima's strategies, he still didn't deal any damage to her Cloyster. ^^;

    Which is sadder when you realize that Ash's Pikachu had a type advantage the whole time...

    Well true he did have a type advantage, although Prima's Cloyster was probably at an extremely high level and therefore Pikachu just wasn't on par with it.

    Eh, I only remember Cloyster using basic moves in this episode, including Reflect, Rage, and Take Down, which weren't too impressive.

    Prima's Cloyster also used Withdraw which raised its defense apparently and which I believe was how it blocked Pikachu's Thunderbolt attack when the match began. O and it used Aurora Beam as well.

    My point is that for an Elite Four member, Prima's Pokemon didn't know any advanced, powerful moves. Even her Slowbro only knew Disable I think.

    God, Prima she was weird. This episode was kind of mushy with the "working together as a team with your Pokemon", like we haven't heard this enough in the whole entire show.

    Well, what Kanna was trying to tell Satoshi might've sounded somewhat cliché, but her advice was important. She was an experienced trainer, so Satoshi was wise to heed her words and take her lesson to heart, which he did in the end when he realized that Kanna was right.

    Good episode. Ash was annoyng due to becoming overconfident, but Lorelei taught him a lesson, which was satisfying to see. I wish they kept her name instead of changing it to Kanna. 8/10

    Kanna is her Japanese name. Her English name in the games was Lorelei, which was changed to Prima in this episode, perhaps as a way of matching mouth movements whenever her name was mentioned.
