    Totodile really should've evolved during the Whirl cup arc. It would've made perfect sense to evolve during this arc. Also we should've seen Misty use Starmie & Horsea again during this arc as well.

    Probably one of the most interesting episodes of the Johto Whirl Cup mini-arc. I say interesting, but not in a good way exactly. Ash's battle against that Kingdra trainer was just awful. I mean really, Ash's Totodile who gets little screentime or training, defeats a Kingdra by shutting it's mouth when it was using Hydro Pump? So ridiculous. I mean, it would've been an ok sort of victory had it not been for the fact that Misty's opponent used a Quilfish who was able to absorb water from the field and use it to it's advantage. I mean, that was like the same thing Kingdra did, only it "blow up" instead of getting stronger. Corsola defeated Quilfish on accident almost (since it got stuck on it's horns), which was another cheap win. Overall, interesting victories for both Ash and Misty, but kind of cheap. 5/10.

    This episode was very cool. Totodile biting Kingdra's mouth to prevent Hydro Pump, and Qwilfish getting stuck in Corsola's horns was very funny to see. Seeing Qwilfish for the 1st time was very cool. Qwilfish's Pin Missle attack was very cool to see.

    This episode was good. Cool to see how Totodile beat that Kingdra by biting it's mouth. Seeing Quilfish for the first time was pretty interesting.

    7/10

    For me, the whirl arc in its entirety felt like a smaller version of the Orange League series. I loved how they both gave Misty's battle and Ash's battle equally screening time and that made this episode packed with two interesting battles to watch. I remember I was really surprised too when I saw that Ash and Misty had to battle each other in the second 2. This episode and the next one were probably some of the best episodes at the beginning of Master Quest.

    Excellent episode, both Ash and Misty had excellent battles. I loved how Brock told Ash that Misty's battling style was similar to Ash's because of how she turned the battle around in her favor, it was hot that he said that. I got a kick out of seeing Bayleef's reaction to being at Prof. Oak's. Seeing Bayleef panic when she realized Ash wasn't around and she was in a completely different place slayed me.

    These matches were difficult. I can't believe Kingdra actually blew up like that. You would have never guessed that would have happened. That guy who battled Misty shouldn't have underestimated her. Because, underestimating your opponent is the first step in defeat.

    Ash's Totodile battle felt right. It had comitic, felt like something Totodile would do and it felt nautural for it. Corlosa had more of a force win in it.

    I loved this episode, Harrison was a great character, I hope they bring him back. Overall, this was just completely fab!

    This was a good episode. I'm glad Ash's Totodile got a win after so long, it was barely getting screentime in the previous episodes. Misty's won her battle by luck, Corsola defeated Quilfish when It was stuck on it's horn. Bayleef's reaction to at Professor Oak's ranch was funny. Ash and Misty will battle in the next episode.

    Kingdra looked hilarious all puffed up like that!
    So was Bayleef's reaction to being in a strange environment!

    My top favorites

    I liked Totodile vs Kingdra and I was surprised by how Ash won hee hee. I thought Misty and Corsola did a good job also plus I felt kind of bad for Bayleef when she got sent to Oak's lab in exchange for Kingler. ^^;

    That old guy's Qwilfish being stuck on Corsola's horns was wicked funny. I also liked how Qwilfish expanded by swallowing water too. 7/10

    That one kid's Kingdra was robbed of a win. I like Totodile as much as anyone, but he shouldn't have won.

    His decision to clamp Kingdra's mouth shut was a smart strategy however, plus him dancing inside of Kingdra's Hydro Pump at one point was funny at least. :3

    I liked Misty's battle against the Quilfish trainer more than Ash's battle because of how Corsola's horns got stuck on Quilfish.

    Poor Bayleef, she doesn't want to be at Oak's. She wanted to be with Ash and I loved seeing Bayleef panic when she realized Ash wasn't around and she was in a completely different place.

    I was relieved when Satoshi had Okido-hakase send over his Kingler, and how Bayleaf panicked when she met Okido-hakase. Waninoko versus Kingdra, and Sunnygo versus Harysen were great battles, too. I also appreciated the Rocket-dan's enthusiasm when they were selling merchandise and souvenirs in the stands.

    Ugh, I hated how they were stuck with such crappy jobs selling stuff all for the sake of stealing that one chick's scepter. TR would've been better off doing something else.

    I liked that battle cuz of how Qwilfish sucked in water to get bigger just like a real life blowfish and also cuz of how its strategy backfired and Corsola took advantage of it getting stuck to finish things with Spike Cannon.

    I didn't get why Bayleef had such an extreme reaction when Ash sent her to Professor Oak. I thought that by this stage she had gotten over her co-dependency on Ash. But anyways, the Whirl Cup matches were awesome.

    She seemed distressed to be in a new environment, though I felt worse for Prof. Oak since he now had to deal with a second Pokemon that would make his life a living hell.

    I didn't really understand why Maya was even introduced in this episode since she did nothing throughout the whole Whirlpool Cup tournament, except watch the various battles unfold. She barely spoke, and her presence could've been scrapped entirely and nothing in the tournament would've changed.
