This episode was great and a wonderful ending to the Lugia arc. Just how both Team Rocket and Ash were both the heroes in this episode was hilarious and I also enjoyed the reverse psychology with Butch guessing James' name wrong. Both this Team Rocket arc and the other one later on in Master Quest are some of the best episodes in my opinion.
Excellent episode to end the Lugia arc, I was glad that Lugia and Silver were finally reunited. It was very nice that Ash and Richie's Pikachu took down Professor Namba's Electabuzz during the battle. I also loved seeing how Sparky shocked Namba. This is Ritchie's last main appearance, we won't see him again until Chronicles.
Team Rocket's stepping up a notch. But, I can't say the same for Jessie and James. I can only say that Arbok is their most decent battler. It's a shame Victreebel is only used for the laughs. Well, it's good Lugia and Silver are reunited.
Well, Victreebel is always a really good battler, you know, after it stops eating James, and actually starts fighting. I mean, the thing listens to him, and usually does a good job. xD
James: "YOU SAID IT WRONG ON PURPOSE!"

Meh .... I didn't like how Jessie, James and Meowth turned against their own group's plan and acted like heroes in this episode.
But I did liked how Ash and Ritchie's took down Dr. Namba's(his voice was still annoying)Electrobuzz, despite it was being powered up. I'm glad Lugia and Silver left the Island after reuniting with each other.
This three-part arc was pretty good, but this episode's plot was weak compared to the previous episode. I think It would be better if Team Rocket didn't helped them. Anybody else could've helped them or Ash and the others could've found a way out on their own, but sadly that didn't happen in this episode.
Yamato and Kosaburo was certainly more competent than Musashi and Kojiro in my opinion. Great to see Satoshi and Hiroshi successfully released the baby Lugia. Great to see Lugia finally realise that Satoshi and friends were not bad guys after all. But the move it used looks a Mamoru/ Protect rather than Shinpi No Mamori/ Safeguard when the submarine is about to explode. Overall this episode was great and certainly unforgettable to me.
Glad everything worked out in the end and the mother and baby Lugia were reunited at last.
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
I was teary-eyed when Lugia was reunited with her child and I liked how Butch said James' name wrong which was like karma ha ha. I wish Ritchie had stayed in the group longer, but I can understand why he left.
Finally Ash's expy, aka Ritchie, left the cast. I didn't think this Lugia arc was good because it dragged on too long and Namba should've been replaced by a TR Executive.
It's too bad that this episode is also the last of Butch & Cassidy being truly evil, now them and Namba have become comic relief in the later episodes of the series, this is the last of TR as an organization being evil. :x
I liked how Musashi and Kojirou helped Osamu when he infiltrated the underwater facility, and Musashi and Kojirou getting their chance to battle Yamato and Kosaburou again was nice. The two Pikachu battling Nanba-hakase's Eleboo was intense as well, and overall, the Lugia mini-arc had a satisfying end.
Not that Dr. Namba being replaced by a TR Executive would've changed much since whoever was in charge of this TR grand scheme would've failed to steal Lugia, regardless. :x
