    I always love gym battles but this one was pretty awful. The battle with Magnemite was very short, only Cyndaquil VS. Steelix was very nice to watch. Cyndaquil did all the job by itself, as happened in most of the Johto gym battles.

    I wasn't suprised from Ash's strategy, he always finds ways to win battles like this.

    Like with "Got Miltank?" this was yet another episode where Cyndaquil should've rightfully evolved.

    Pikachu can't always have the good battles all the time, so most of the Johto Pokemon did somehow turned out to be more useful than we originally thought. If only Ash had trained them better before the conference, Cyndaquil would have evolved earlier, Totodile would have atleast learned a better move, and Ash's Kanto Pokemon wouldn't have took all the spotlight from the Johto ones.

    This episode was very cool! The way Steelix used Crunch on that huge Wobuffet was very cool. The Pikachu vs Magnemite battle was cool, Ash's strategy to win was very cool to see. It did make me wonder why Pikachu still never learned Thunder Wave, and why Thunder Wave is never shown correctly in the Anime. Cyndaquil vs Steelix was the best battle! The way Cyndaquil hung in there and was finally able to win by using Flamethrower to set the Sandstorm on fire was very cool.

    80/100

    Very nice episode. Ash had a very good startegy. It was cool to see Steelix again. I personaly think Cyndaquil should have evolved in this episode,he deserves it.

    9/10

    Cyndaquil vs. Steelix is really one of the best executed battles in the entire saga, in my opinion. not much variety in moves, but it manages to keep your interest beginning to end.

    Would've liked to see Jasmine with one more Pokemon. Two seems so meager at this point.

    The battle was really tense, cool and nice! Seeing Cyndaquil appear and battle was cool, and it was nice to see Cyndaquil being decisive and not Pikachu. I have this episode on DVD and posting in this thread makes me feel like rewatching this episode. 10/10.

    Why Pikachu?? This could have been Bulbasaur's chance to enter a Johto gym before he left --'

    I think this gym battle and episode was really well-done. Especially the battle between Steelix and Cyndaquil was absolutely entertaining to watch. I do find it peculiar that Cyndaquil didn't evolve in a episode like this, but instead     Spoiler:

    Excellent gym battle episode, I thought Jasmine was going to use Ampharos. Cyndaquil VS Steelix was very intense. I also loved Brock's "Girldex" reading of Jasmine, really funny.

    A very good episode. Crunch is a fearsome attack, I wonder what would have happened if Cyndaquil had gotten hit by it? The damage from it looks devastating. This battle kind of reminds me of how Ash beat Koga.

    Brock: I'll battle my broken heart
    Misty: And I'll battle the urge to be sick!

    Default Nerves Of Steelix!

    This episode's dub title "Nerves of Steelix" is lame, 4kids should've came up with a better title. As for this episode itself, i thought It's dumb how Ash fell for Team Rocket's trap and they stole Pikachu. Ash should've guessed that the Wobufett statue was a trap. I didn't like Ash falling for Team Rocket's dumb trap, but liked Jasmine came to the rescue with her Steelix and orders it use Crunch, causing TR's Robot to explode.
    Pikachu and Magnamites battle was so-so, but Steelix and Cyndaquil's battle was great! I liked Ash's strategy, using Flamethrower to turning the tonardo into a blaze was a very smart move ..... and it worked perfectly. I'm glad Ash got the Mineral Badge from Jasmine. It was funny when Brock suddenly took Jasmine's hand and started to flirt with her, only to be dragged away by Misty.

    Overall, a good Gym battle episode. It's great to see Ash using strategy in the battle. Seeing Jasmine again was nice, she was so beautiful and Hot. <3

    Great gym battle and it was a close one. Hinoarashi surely rocks in this episode especially when he knock out Haganeil. Looked like the ability Blaze was activated although it did not exist. Finally I like the Sonans mecha especially when it used its hands to throw Pikachu into the mouth.

    I'll be honest, I kind of miss gyms battles that Ash loses once and goes back for a rematch. Last time that happened was with Whitney. It get's kind of boring after a while seeing him (not necessarily so) easily beat the gym on the first try, at least to me.

    Magnemite deserved a longer match and Steelix versus Cyndaquil seemed ridiculous due to size differences between the 2 Pokemon. 6.5/10

    Finally the long awaited Olivine gym battle with the real gym leader this time. Magnemite was kind of underwhelming to me however, but Jasmine's Steelix fixed that and I liked how Cyndaquil won.

    My favorite scene was Steelix VS Cyndaquil because of how Cyndaquil turned the tables on Steelix despite being so small.

    Whoa Ash's tiny Cyndaquil took down Jasmine's effing huge Steelix like it was nothing lmao. This was my favorite Johto era Gym battle by far.

    I did think Ash's Cyndaquil was impressive too even tho he was tiny and I kind of thought he was going to evolve here ha ha. But clearly he was strong enough even without that. ^^

    Obviously Ash was gonna win no matter what because he had spent too much time beating around the bush in Olivine: He needed the Mineral Badge ASAP.

    Just to play devil's advocate, Ash didn't need to win to get the Mineral badge from Jasmine. He could've tied with her here or even lost and she still might've given Ash the badge out of pity like how some Kanto gym leaders did. For a moment while watching Steelix vs Cyndaquil, I kind of considered Ash losing. ^^;
