I liked the gym battle against Bugsy. It's interesting to learn that Cyndaquil can't start its flame immediatly. Then it was nice to see Chikorita beat out Spinarak, even though it clearly had the disadvantage. The Metapod was very surprising in how fast it was. I remember when Ash had a Metapod, and it was horrible. Scyther was amazing, and I thought it was the best pokemon in the match. However, Ash got lucky in having Cyndaquil use flamethrower from overhead in my opinion. Oh well, it is still good to see Ash win his second Johto badge.
