    I loved this battle for seeing that both Pryce and Ash were using unexpected strategies and creativity with the gym field. That blizzard attack by Piloswine in order to froze the water pool in the field was genius and Ash's counter-strategy with his Pikachu against Piloswine was a stroke of genius. This battle ranks highly when it comes down to battle strategies because this one was full with just that.

    For some reason Mahogany Town reminds me of Twin Peaks. Must be the similar environments of the two places.

    This was a good episode nonetheless.

    A very good gym battle episode, I loved Ash's strategy in the battle with Cyndaquil vs Dewgong. It was a smart move from Ash by having Pikachu slide from icicle to icicle to avoid Piloswine's attacks and how Pikachu didn't give up on the thunder shock. Though I am a little disappointed that Pryce forfeited.

    Oh so Dewgong did faint in battle. I didn't remember this battle too much. But man was Piloswine strong. People may say that Charizard vs Magmar was awesome, but to me, this battle surely took the cake.

    I wish Pikachu had actually beat Piloswine, the battle was pretty intense until Pryce surrendered (aka gave Ash the win). XD Pryce must be blind not to see that Piloswine had more energy

    I would have liked Ash to have won without it being a TKO but at least he won.

    TR's crazy ice plan didn't work out haha

    The gym battle was awesome although Inomoo is being hit by electric attack does not make sense to me. Nice to see that Yanagi actually forfeit the battle in this style as I have never seen it this way before although Satoshi did not win strictly speaking.

    The battle itself was pretty intense. Mostly the Pikachu/Piloswine battle.
    That thing (Piloswine) just wouldn't go down. It was kind of scary!

    Really, REALLY didn't like it when Pryce gave Ash the win like that. No really, I hated that!

    Meh, a TKO ending was lame. Piloswine should've been too old to even put up such a hard effort against Pikachu...

    I didn't like Dewgong's battle against Cyndaquil but thankfully Piloswine made things better since it kept attacking and pushing Pikachu to his limit. 8/10

    I was surprised by how well Cyndaquil did against Dewgong despite his type disadvantage and Piloswine healing itself with Rest seemed unfair to Ash, so I was glad that Pryce eventually forfeited.

    Piloswine's power was straight bs. The thing was frozen for decades, so it didn't make sense that it could put up such a hard fight.

    Ash's T.K.O win seemed annoying to me when I was a kid, but now I realize that Pryce wanted to protect his Piloswine from receiving more damage.

    I liked when Pikachu was sliding around the ice sculptures, that was pretty interesting lol. It's also strange how Pryce's Piloswine kept taking all of those strong electric attacks and kept going. I also liked the part when Meowth was face-to-face with the angry Seel.

    Given that Yanagi's Inomoo had recently been frozen solid for years, I was slightly surprised that he was used, but it was pleasant to see Yanagi use a Jugong since we rarely see them in the anime. Yanagi surrendering made sense to me, and the Rocket-dan getting frozen by Yanagi's spare Ice-types made me chuckle.

    Well that's why Pryce ended up giving up the match; he knew that Piloswine was still injured from his frozen state, so he gave Ash the default win in the end.

    I'm aware that Yanagi gave Satoshi the win because of his concern for Inomoo's health, but I meant that if Yanagi was so worried about that from the beginning, he shouldn't have even considered using Inomoo against Satoshi for the Gym battle at all.

    Eh, I guess Pryce didn't think Piloswine would struggle so much, so he didn't give his decision much thought.

    I'm guessing that Rest was enough to undo most of his damage from when he was previously frozen as well as charge him up, although it did feel kind of cheap that Rest kept being used here.

    Yanagi ordering Inomoo to heal itself throughout the Gym battle was fair given that during Gym matches, Gym Leaders aren't supposed to hold back. So Yanagi testing Satoshi and Pikachu by throwing them a curve ball was fitting for this battle. Of course, Satoshi's Pikachu was struggling regardless, so you could say that Satoshi failed to adapt to Yanagi's methods.
