    This was a really good second part episode. I liked how Team Rocket managed to convince the dragonite to help them, even though things went horribly wrong in the next episode. It was funny when they were giving the dragonite images of an evil Claire and the twerps (normally it'd be disturbing, but hey, this was an exaggerated story!). I'm also glad that Team Rocket's interruption ended up being beneficial for Ash since he then was able to get Charizard and Snorlax for his gym battle.

    The one time when TR interrupting was good. Gave us a good preview to Kingdra's might, to Clair's skill, and made way for a good sidequest.

    Best part was when Jessie wanted to see 'an adorable Pokémon face' and Meowth pops up overhead XD

    Wobbuffet's voice was also rather strange when it was looking for the......er, 'donuts'. BTW, anyone find it weird that they're called sandwiches in the episode to this episode?

    I'm surprised that Brock didn't advise Ash against Electric Attacks on Kingdra. Furthermore, though, I'm surprised they did so little. Sure, they do neutral damage to Kingdra, but that doesn't make it impervious to them. Kingdra's voice, BTW, poned.

    Poor Dragonite. It's backstory was terribly cliché, but I still felt sorry for it.

    Overall rating:
    8.8 out of 10
    Excellent, just excellent. Funny, good prequel, and nice animation, IMO.

    I can't believe Jessie was still upset about Dratini. As if she can control Pokemon evolution. Sorry for bumping this thread.

    Rayquaza never appeared in a regular episode of ANY season, so this point is moot.

    So far, Rayquaza has only been in the movies.

    The
    "Dragon of Light" was probably based on the Long-style dragons, just as Rayquaza is. It's the same concept as that one boat in Maiden's Peak bearing a Wind Chime and people thinking it was Chimecho, it's simply simmilaritys in looks derived from the same concept.

    This is a good episode. Don't you think Wynaut showed up as a debut in this episode?

    I guess it confused Dragonite that they had the dragon fang.

    This episode aired on my birthday And it was a good one. I don't like how he didn't use any of his Johto Pokemon though.

    Wow. This reminds me when I had my past battles against her Kingdra. It's not easy to beat. I wish Noctowl could have defeated it at least.

    I thought that the gym battle at the beginning of the episode was great. Clair's Kingdra was really powerful. However, Team Rocket just always has to mess things up. I thought that the Dragon's Den was pretty neat. Team Rocket made a smart choice inconvincing Dragonite help them get rid of Ash, Misty, Brock and Clair. However, I am glad to see Charizard coming to help save them.

    I do not do competitive battling and I really do not have any desire to. I also do not go out of my way seeking for shinies because I never really understood why they were so great anyways. All I truely enjoy pokemon contests, breeding, and in-game battling.

    I think grass pokemon are the greatest ever and I take great pride in the ones I have raised. I also think that Chikorita is the most adorable pokemon ever!


    If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:

    Seems that Ash wasn't able to beat Kingdra.

    And Dragonite was very angry, it was sad.

    The gym battle was pretty good, Kingdra was quite strong and might have actually won if it wasn't for TR (Reminds me of a Kingdra I just battled on the Wifi lol it was strong).

    It was a good episode but the next one is even better. I wonder how come Dragonite does not know who Clair is, I guess she is never been in the Holy lands.

    Wynaut, Wobbuffet, and especially Dragonite were all adorably cute in this episode . Ash could've had that gym match against Clair's Kingdra in the bag had he properly utilized Noctowl's psychic attacks. Also Charizard's special surprise appearance at the end of this episode equals all 7 kinds of epic !

    So Ash and Clair finally got their Blackthorn City Gym battle underway. I was impressed by what I saw from Clair's Kingdra as even Pikachu's Electric attacks didn't seem to be of much use against the Wate/Dragon-type. I was very disappointed by Team Rocket's antics in this episode though. I hated that they stole the Dragon Fang just as Ash and Clair's Gym battle was getting interesting due to Noctowl getting involved. I did like the chase involved though, and how Misty used Politoed to help her go after Team Rocket with the other guys. The Dragon's Den in the anime looked more like a tunnel so that was a neat surprise. I liked that the Dragonite at the garden was friendly but I was disappointed that it let itself be used by Team Rocket. A pretty good episode despite it's small flaws. 8/10.

    This episode was cool. I liked the gym battle, even though Ash did poorly. He was definitely a dunce when it came to Kingdra's high Special Defenses. It was cool seeing Kingdra for the 1st time. Too bad Dragonite fell for what TR said and turned on Clair and the gang.

    64/100
