    Out of all the gym battles Ash has ever been in, this is my top favorite. It was definitely one of the more difficult battles he's been in, considering he hadn't fought many ghost pokemon, and he really used his quick thinking and smarts to win. The best part is that he used Cyndaquil to beat gastly, which was a surprise. Hey, it worked, so kudos for him. He also did great with Noctowl.

    Team Rocket were also pretty good in this episode. I like how the ghost pokemon tricked them, it was pretty funny.

    The one bad thing about this episode was the fact that they used S*ittastic animation for it, just like the Roxanne Gym Battle episode. I mean, seriously. They give the great animation episodes to a frikking filler with PICHU, and then give this episode to the crappy animation team. >.>

    I liked the part when Cyndaquil ran up gastly's tongue and headbutted him.

    Looked like somethin outta DBZ.

    A very exciting and intense gym battle I throughly enjoyed it, congrats to Ash for winning a Fog Badge. Considering Ash hasn't had many battles against Ghost Pokemon he did pretty good holding his own and puling a come from behind victory.

    The battle was very well done, and Ash really used his head for once.

    I liked how he actually thought to use foresight, and how Cyndquil ran up Gastly's tongue.

    Although I think Gengar was way too shafted in favour of Gastly, couldn't he have put up a bit more of a fight... Still an excellent gym battle.

    This was definitely one of the best gym battles ever.
    ...Even though it bothered me how easily Pikachu lost; that thing should have been a really high level. D:<

    Plus, Matsuba is one of the best gym leaders ever, IMO. :'D

    Kudos for Ash's Noctowl, because it learned Confusion in the battle! I love how the group of Gastly seemed to foil Team Rocket's scheme. And Morty too, he's so kind.

    One thing irked me about this episode, and that was the way they portrayed Mean Look. Apparently Mean Look makes Pokemon unable to switch only because Brock says so. Why couldn't they have shown Haunter manipulating the Pokemon away from the Poke Ball's beams or something? At least they made good use of Foresight.

    I must admit, this was actually a forgettable episode. I love Ecruteak City itself, but I completely forgot that Ash had a Gym Match here. So I had to read the episode guide.

    And what do I see? Not too much. Pretty much the only noteworthy aspect of the episode was Ash actually using strategy, ie: using Foresight properly.

    At least he didn't have to have a rematch, that's all I can say .-.

    I agree it was pretty forgetable.
    I was very dissapointed, I expected a much more intense battle. -.-

    I agree that the battle wasn't as good as it could have been, but how can you forget where a gym is?

    Sadly, this was Noctowl's only major battle in the entire series.

    Kinda sad and pathetic, but most of Ash's Johto Pokemon were handled badly so that's just how it was back then.

    The writers really screwed up Ash's Johto team so badly, at least Phanpy was salvaged when they brought it back for Battle Frontier, and Heracross is a good reserve as well.

    Ash's Johto starters + Noctowl got the absolute worst treatment of all his teams.

    I wish noctowl had gotten to battle more, but at least he got to fight in this one, one of ash's coolest battles

    Poor Noctowl. It was one of it's few major battles. And of course Ash just had to Pikachu again >_>

    I expected a much better fight out of Gengar. It seemed to me that Gastly was Morty's best pokemon. I am glad Ash used Noctowl, as this has been its only major battle so far. I thought Ash's strategy of using Confusion through the whole room was a little obvious. I would have thought he would have done that no matter what, that way it would be unavoidable. Either way, I am glad Ash managed to win.

    I do not do competitive battling and I really do not have any desire to. I also do not go out of my way seeking for shinies because I never really understood why they were so great anyways. All I truely enjoy pokemon contests, breeding, and in-game battling.

    I think grass pokemon are the greatest ever and I take great pride in the ones I have raised. I also think that Chikorita is the most adorable pokemon ever!


    If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:
