    This episode was good to demonstrate Gengar's power. That Shadow Ball was amazing.

    I enjoyed hearing about the history of Ecruteak since I've always liked the story about Ho-Oh and the towers. It was nice that Ash recognized that Ho-Oh was the Pokemon he saw at the beginning of his journey. I also liked Morty and the Ghost type Pokemon in this episode. Morty's ability to understand all the Ghost Pokemon was very interesting IMO and I thought his Gengar was very strong. I liked how the ghosts were quite sneaky and created that illusion of fire. Also, I thought Team Rocket's plot with the Itemfinder was pretty funny because of James's reaction to finding all those bottle caps.

    An example of the anime makes no sense since normal type and ghost type should immune against each other. This episode was quite focused on Kojiro in my opinion since there were many occasions for the bottle caps using the itemfinder. I particularly liked the scene when Rocket was surprised to see Pikachu and Togepy came to them. Generally this episode was not bad at all.

    I liked how the show brought to light how Foresight makes a physical attack able to hit a ghost type.
    The history of the burned tower being told by Morty was pretty interesting.

    So Ho-Oh was finally referred to by name. And Ecruteak City looked accurate with the games, so that was a good thing...

    Ecruteak looked amazing and I liked how James got tricked into purchasing an Itemfinder. Morty was cool as well and I liked how Ash finally learned that the mysterious pokemon he saw in Kanto was a Ho-Oh.

    Infernando (or whatever the clown's name was) being based on a Firebreather was my favorite thing about that.

    Ecruteak City looked exactly like Kyoto but I didn't like seeing Togepi get lost for the hundredth time. I liked all the Ghosts though. 7/10

    I liked when Togepi got lost since we got to see Ash's friends searching Ecruteak for it + Morty had such a cool sounding VA.

    Satoshi and friends arrived in Enju City here, and it was great seeing how accurate the locale was to the Jouto games. Kojirou buying the Dowsing Machine was humorous since he has a habit of getting scammed, and I was pleased to see Enju City's Burned Tower, as well as Matsuba explaining its origin story and Houou.

    Huh, I had forgotten that in this episode we actually learned the identity of the mystery Pokemon Ash saw when starting his journey: it was also a great story on the history of the Brass Tower.

    I liked seeing a GSC trainer class show up too hee hee, tho I would've preferred if he had showed up inside the Burned Tower here like the Firebreathers in the Johto games. :3

    I didn't mind the G/S/C Fire Breather guy who we saw here, but if we had to see one important G/S/C character in the Burned Tower, it should've been Eusine.

    Actually I don't think Eusine even existed at this point in the Gen 2 era cuz Crystal hadn't been released yet hee hee. Tho we did eventually get to see Eusine in Ecruteak city when Ash and his group went back after Olivine city. ^^

    Oh duh lol, I forgot that this episode aired before we even had Crystal version. Well we still should've seen the G/S/C rival here at least.

    Silver not showing up in the Burned Tower here was understandable from my perspective since he wasn't Ash's Johto saga rival. I was honestly fine with Morty being the only major character from Ecruteak city who made an appearance here.

    Eh, I just thought that given Ecruteak's significance, more would have happened here. Instead we just got Ho-Oh info and hype, which felt sparse.

    This episode was like a typical pre-gym battle episode, so I can see why we didn't get too much action here and mainly saw Ash's group meet Morty. Togepi ending up becoming lost for the dozenth time was a bit frustrating to me however. ^^;

    Fine episode. Liked learning a bit about Ho-Oh and the twin towers. Morty and his ghost Pokémon were great, showing off their moves (especially for Gengar) and helps Ash know what to expect for his gym match against Morty. James finding treasure was funny, but they should consider themselves lucky for getting Pikachu and Togepi, but too bad for them to blast off empty-handed.
