    A good episode! When I saw Falkner's Pidgeot It reminded me of Ash's Pidgeot which was referenced shortly after. Made me sad how Ash keeps saying he'll see his Pidgeot again when he never does. He promised after OI he'd come back for it. Anyway the gym battle was intense, especially the final one. Glad Ash won his first Johto badge!

    So Falkner was Rudy's voice, no wonder it sounded familiar.

    It's Marill!
    Finally they get to the Violet City Gym! That was one good battle, and Falkner's Gym looks so much better in the Animé than it did in the games. I feel sorry for the new Johto trainers though, if Falkner's going to be that tough. Quite powerful considering he's the first Gym Leader of the region. Team Rocket getting pecked in the end was funny!

    A good episode. A total turnaround if you compare Ash's first gym battle in Kanto and now this one in Johto. I loved the battle and it was solid to see both older Pokémon like Charizard and newer Pokémon like Chikorita to see. Also a nice addition is that Falkner has both 1st and second generation Pokémon under his disposal.

    Falkner scares me. (O.O) He talks so fast and angry, but he is a good battler. And it's nice that they showed a flashback of Pidgeot.

    Great gym battle. This episode was a great way to show off a gym leaders power.

    Another big mistake from Satoshi as he sends out Chicorita against a flying type Pokémon. Especially he has Pikachu which could took out two of Hayato's Pokémon. Lizardon performed average but not too impressive as he could have won easily. Overall I think that battle should be Satoshi using two Pokémon to take out three Hayato's Pokémon.

    For a first gym battle in a region this one was pretty awesome! Especially Pidgeot versus Charizard.
    I wonder what exactly happened when Charizard hurt his wing?

    I remember being surprised that Falkner used a Pidgeot against Ash here; I didn't expect the first Johto Gym Leader to have a fully-evolved Pokemon is all. Anyway, I liked Hoothoot versus Chikorita if only because type advantage won in the end, and I didn't expect Falkner's Dodrio to be so agile. It was an interesting Gym match.

    I liked how Falkner was introduced when he helped stop Team rocket and I was glad that Ash remembered his own Pidgeot. The Violet gym battle was fun to watch too especially Charizard vs Pidgeot as the last match. ^^

    I didn't expect Pikachu to be stolen really early but at least Falkner saved him. But I also liked Charizard vs Pidgeot in the end and Ash winning the badge, too. But disappointed that he used Chikorita against his first sent Pokémon, Hoothoot.

    Which makes me wish Ash had used his own Pidgeot here. It would've been epic to see Pidgeot VS. Pidgeot.

    I think it would've been interesting, but not very practical since Ash's Pidgeot wouldn't have been easy to call back in Johto. ^^; Charizard getting the big win was enough.

    While that would've been cool, I'm just impressed that Ash even remembered his own Pidgeot here.

    Well I know Ash can be forgetful at times, but him forgetting that he owned one himself would've looked bad and embarrassing. I'm thankful that he didn't have an amnesia moment here. ^^;

    Who voiced Falkner? His voice was outstanding and I was amazed by Dodrio's jumping skills and agility.

    Matthew Mitler. And I was also impressed by how fast Falkner's Dodrio was despite it being so large and flightless hee hee. :3
