    Loved to see Ash save Piloswine from the ice. 9/10
    Hmm let's see. Brock and Misty defintely have an interesting back story. I would also say that Roark does too, with the whole story with his dad.

    It was nice to see Pryce to a complete 180 and show his softer side when it came to his dear friend Piloswine. This episode pumped me up for the gym battle!

    Pryce was really tough as a gym leader, but with Pyloswine he wasn't.
    His story was exciting.. I almost cried

    If there's one thing that Johto did right it was developing gym leaders from beyond just a mere, simple, cardboard-cutout, character, and this episode had indeed proved that.

    This episode was ok... I was glad Pryce was finally reunited with Piloswine after all those years. I'm surprised it was able to survive all those years. The story behind Pryce and Piloswine's past and how Pryce thought Piloswine left him, when in fact it was trying to find herbs to help heal his wounds, but instead became frozen was cool to listen to.

    50/100

    This episode was cool. Glad to see Pryce and Pilsowine to be together again after being seperated for so long. Cool to see some history behind a gym leader.

    7/10

    I wonder if that band is a precursor to the Power Bracer items in Gen IV?
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    It was cool to see the backstory of Pryce, which gave him more of a personality. It was so sad... It was awesome that he found Piloswine again! It was also good that his Dewgong defeated Ash's Phanpy, hopefully Ash learned from that... Ash got put in his place and deserved to lose, so it was good that he didn't get a lucky win... I love this awesome, perfect and beautiful episode. And it was very emotional as well. This is what I love so much about the Original Series, everything post-Original Series lacks that... 10/10 for this awesome episode! This episode is the perfect build-up to that awesome gym battle.

    Something about Pryce really made like him in both character and personality. To find out about his whole background and history what resulted in him being having that view about Pokémon is certainly superbly done. And at the end, that when he found his Piloswine and rethought his view about Pokémon was great too. It gave a nice end for both Pryce and it set the stone for the gym battle in the next episode.

    A very good episode. The whole back story of Price and his Piloswine was really touching and almost made me cry. Nice to know that Pryce's bitterness melted away when he got reunited with his Piloswine after so many years. Poor Phanpy getting one shot by Dewgong's Ice Beam, but that's what happens when Ash gets over confident so he deserved to lose that battle.

    Yes! Finally we get a sad moment. I liked how Pryce broke down when he was apologizing to Piloswine. It's what he needed to do.

    Great episode! It was great to see Pilowswine reunited with Pryce and I realised that I have been pronouncing it wrong for years. I have always called it Pillow-swine (as in the thing your head sleeps on lol)

    Default "As Cold as Pryce!"

    When I first watched this episode, I found Pryce's backstory with Piloswine heartwarming. It's sad how Piloswine went out of the snowbound cottage to find herves for Pryce, but ended up getting frozen in an icy carven. I didn't like the way Pryce thought that his Piloswine aboadoned him and stopped treating his Pokémon as his friends, but I liked the scene when he found with his Piloswine frozen in the ice carven. It was nice to see Pryce finally reuniting with his Piloswine, as well as understanding what friendship means.

    The Gym battle between Ash and Price was kind of meh. Phanphy got knocked out too soon, so I didn't enjoy the Gym battle in this episode.

    Satoshi did not think about the type matching at the beginning of the battle was not good in my opinion since he should have known this ages ago. Good use of Waninoko to slow down the falling speed although I think Satoshi was still being reckless. I assume that Yanagi has aged more than 30 years so it is amazing that Inomoo is still alive after being frozen for a long time.

    I actually got a little choked up when Pryce broke down apologizing to Piloswine.
    Glad that him reuniting with his long lost Piloswine turned him in to a less cold person.

    I cackled like a hyena when Ash challenged Pryce with Phanpy and it got beaten quickly by Dewgong; that's what he gets for not caring about type disadvantage. I thought Ash was at least smart when he used Totodile's Water Gun to break his fall, and seeing Pryce make medicine with herbs was cool. I liked seeing Pryce and Piloswine reunite tbh.

    This was a good episode.It was nice to learn about Pryce's backstory.Using Phanpy to battle Dewgong was arguably silly-poor thing got destroyed before it could even land a hit.

    Pryce finding his frozen Piloswine was sad and I teared up a little when I saw them reunite and how Pryce became friendly again. 7/10

    Wow Pryce's story about his Piloswine leaving him was sad even tho it was a misunderstanding. I liked how he was reunited with it and how Ash was there to help change Pryce's cold personality. :3

    Pryce going from a grumpy old man to suddenly being so cheerful in a single episode seemed like sloppy writing, but he looked cool in his younger days.

    Piloswine being cryogenically frozen was a sad way for him to get separated from Pryce, though it was beautiful how he found herbs for Pryce's burn.

    This episode was brilliant, loved when Pryce met up with Piloswine, very touching moment, almost brought a tear to my eyes. We need more storylines involving Gym Leaders like this since it builds up the match very well.

    It was a relief to see Satoshi and his friends make it to Chouji Town, and I was fond of Shima because she seemed friendly, unlike her friend Yanagi. However, I did like how we saw Yanagi's waterfall meditation since it was mentioned in G/S/C, and the reunion between Yanagi and Inomoo was Jouto's most tender moment.

    Piloswine disappearing is what made Pryce bitter tho, so him finding Piloswine again was a logical way for his attitude to change for the better. I was a bit teary eyed when they reunited. :3

    Pryce's angst was kinda annoying tbh. Like, he was bitter at Ash even though Piloswine's apparent betrayal wasn't his fault. I dislike characters who lash out at everyone, including innocent people.
