    Before I begin giving my own opinion about this episode, I do want to say that this season (Master Quest) is probably the best original series season out of all five. Yeah, that's right, it even beats the Indigo League series. So much happened during this season, that most of my list of epic moments in Pokémon happened during this season. The theme rocks too.

    Now, for this sub-part (Whirl Arc) the first episode wasn't that good of being interesting, but I did like some openings like Misty wanting a Corsola and the Lugia's shadow appearing - foreshadowing events that will happen later on in this arc. That is probably this episode its strongest point.

    A nice episode to introduce the Whirl Islands and the Whirl Cup competition. It was great how Misty kept saying she wanted to become a Water Pokemon Master. It was nice to see Professor Elm again too. I love how calm & collected he is, his Corsola was very cute. I loved how Misty wanted a Corsola so badly.

    It was a good episode. But, right when Staryu's used, it loses after one hit. I'm starting to think Staryu is a glass canon. It's nice to see that the Whirl Cup is introduced. It'll advance Misty into becoming a Water Pokemon Master. She needs this.

    You'll be pleased with the results of the Whirl Cup if you haven't seen the next few episodes.

    Agreed. Happy that she got one later as well.

    LOL. Well then, we all agree the Whirl Cup was good for Misty.

    Apart from Lugia's shadow, Prof. Elm's appearance and Misty wanting to catch a Corsola, this episode was(yawn) a bore.
    It was a rather boring start of the Whirl Islands arc in my opinion.

    Name-wise, I always get Professor Elm and Birch mixed up.

    I thought this was a pretty good episode for Misty. I like how pumped up she is for the Whirl Cup. Also it seems like Misty catching Corsola was foreshadowed here. I also enjoyed seeingvProf. elm again.

    This episode was really boring. Beside the lore of the Water Pokemon really nothing really happen beside Team Rocket stealing the Water Pokemon. Also this is the first time in Johto that Team Rocket was able to beat one of the twerps Pokemon in a battle. So Misty had to fail of getting the Water Pokemon back from Team Rocket that was so wrong in so many way. And then Misty having to fangirl over Colsorla because Misty is girl.

    So far in the Johto region there were some Pokemon type tournment in the past, but they wasn't a big deal, but when we get something about water Pokemon we have to have lore surrounded by them. That seem so unfair to some of the other type of Pokemon in the world. I think this arc would have been better in the Hoenn region then in Johto. Would it been awesome if they would put in Kyogre lore in here where it could have a better role. Because it is the creator of the sea. But I'm just spit balling something over here.

    Anyway I'm going to give this episode a D
