    Best. Episode. Ever.

    Professor Sebastian makes his first appearance in the dub ^_____^ Of course this is my favorite episode. Tyson, too, of course...but anyways, we get to see the REAL Team Rocket in action. I always love it when one of the scientists is involved anyways...especially Seb Plus, I adore cliffhanger episodes, because these eps always end with the bad guys winning.

    This would definately qualify as my favorite episode ever.

    ^Yes! *agrees with Phantom_Bugsy* Lance is what made this episode (and the next one) worth my time IMO.

    Though we never found out much about the G-Men.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Anyone else think that Tyson is Oak's no-good, runaway son? The resemblance to both Oak and Gary is far too strong, and it would explain *so* much about Gary.

    But just look at them! How could that hair be merely a coincidence?

    I just got a question (since I'm deprived and haven't seen this or the next ep) but do they ever say that Lance is a member of the Elite Four? Or just that he's a 'member of the pokemon G-men'?

    It *is* stated that Lance is a member of the Pokemon G-men (more than once, Lance says it, and Tyson says it (Tyson: Lance the G-Man? That one?")), but they never really come out and say that he's a member of the Elite Four. I don't *think*. I'll have to check again, I usually just fast forward to all of the Sebastian and Tyson parts so I don't know.

    Either Ash or Brock says that Lance is a member of the Elite Four. The Undisputed Champion, in fact.

    Also, Dub Only, if I recall.

    You're right! ^^ I should watch the whole thing through once in a while. Meh heh. I have yet to see the Japanese version...

    Which reminds me of a question. I read an episode guide yesterday for the Japanese version (I'm trying to find the site again, if I find a link, I'll post it). There were some mistakes in the guide, but something caught my interest. It said that Tyson introduces himself as "one of Shiranui's great apprentices". I don't know Japanese, and I haven't seen the Japanese episode, but could someone tell me if there's any truth to this? If it *is* true, then it may explain why only Shiranui is seen working with the Rockets in the silver uniform.

    I saw this episode just lately. It was one of the better episodes. There was a good amount of plot and meat in the story here. I liked Team Rocket's role in the episdoe, as well.

    This was a really good two-part episode. I liked Sebastian as a villain much more than Nanba in the Lugia trilogy, and at least we'll get to see him again when the Chronicles episodes come out. Tyson was interesting too. Lance was a great guest star as well, though I liked him better in part two. Overall, part two was much better than part one, for several different reasons, but I liked the setup in this episode, and it was a good dramatic story.

    Professor Sebastain is quite rotten to the core. You can easily tell by his facial expression that he's always up to no good. He might as well be called Professor "Sinister" Sebastian.

    Very good episode, especially with the Red Gyarados and a change of villians

    Good episode it's nice seeing Lance make his first appearance in the series as well as the Red Gyarados, though not our first shiny in the series it is still impressive to see it animated from the G,S,C games.

    I was really expecting Misty to be greatly fascinated with the red shiny gyarados, and overcome here fear of them, and for HER to be the one to engage in a fierce battle with it, and capture it, but unfortunately, she didn't. I thought that would've made a nice plot twist. Oh well, at least she later conqured her fear of them, and she has a gyarados to call her own now. Nice appearance for Lance too.

    So it was stated that Lance was a member of the "Pokemon G-Men," but they never really come out and say that he's a member of the Elite Four. I was really expecting Misty to be greatly fascinated with the Shiny Gyarados by the way and overcome her fear of them, but unfortunately, she didn't. And am I the only one who's mad that we didn't see the TR Executives from GSC here?

    the red gyarados was quite a sightseeing to behold, shinies are rare in the anime series.
