    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.

    Cool battle at the beggining. Team Rocket were really mean to the Dragonite tricking it. Sad that they could not continue the battle.

    It was a pity to see the battle quit. Ash was definitely going to lose against Kingdra, having Noctowl defeated and Pikachu really tired (close to being beaten). The battle was really great. The rest of this episode was also good, but less good in my opinion.

    It's a shame we never saw the final efforts of Noctowl vs. Kingdra. Unless it miraculously pulled Ice Beam out of its butt, Noctowl might've been victorious. I'm also curious who his original third choice would've been. Bayleef?
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    Team Rocket can be really persuasive if they need to be. The first gym battle between Ash and Claire was really well-done and it clearly showed how tough of an opponent Ash was facing. I'm always someone that loves the Dragon-type Pokémon since it was first introduced and that is something else why I liked this arc and episode even more.

    A good episode, Clair's Kingdra was powerful. I got a laugh at how Jessie still can't get over Dratini evolving and I was dying when TR acted all innocent with Dragonite deceiving it to attack the twerps.

    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.

    The gym battles between Satoshi and Ibuki was not very impressive in my opinion. Best scene of this episode is the Rocket actually got away from Satoshi and gained Kairyu's trust when they describe to it that Satoshi and friends were bad people. Sonano did not make a formal debut in my opinion and quite funny that Sonans was the one to be blamed for the donuts.

    Yeah, Dragonair is actually bigger than I thought, for sure.
    Is that Ash's Charizard at the end? I sure hope so!

    An alright episode.I liked the fact Kingdra didn't take much damage from Pikachu's electricity.The end of the episode was even better,especially everyone chasing Team Rocket on their Pokemon,although Dragonair flying(as opposed so swimming) looked out of place.

    Aww man the gym match between Clair and Ash was fun until Team Rocket stole the Dragon Fang and ruined every thing. Dragonite being tricked by Team Rocket was sad however and I wish they hadn't messed with it.

    Lol, poor Dragonite getting fooled by TR of all people and the Dragon's Den looked so effing lame. It was just a tunnel with water...

    Dragonite being tricked into helping Jessie and James made me feel bad for it and I liked the beginning of the Gym match before it was postponed.

    I liked how Team Rocket managed to convince the wild Dragonite to help them, even though things went horribly wrong as usual. It was funny when they were giving the Dragonite images of an evil Clair and I'm also glad that Team Rocket's interruption ended up being beneficial for Ash.

    I didn't like how the Dragon's Den was portrayed either, but I guess its appearance was changed in order to make the Dragon Holy Land place more important.

    I'm 99% sure that the "Dragon Holy Land" was the show's version of the Dragon's Den, though.

    I don't think so cuz when Ash's group went with Clair through the tunnels, that place was called the Dragon's Den. I think the Holy Land simply took over for the Dragon's Den's other roles, such as the location of the Dragon Shrine and of the Dragon Fang.

    In that case, at least we got to see the Dragon's Den at all: some other in-game Johto locations weren't as lucky in the anime. Too bad that the dragon shrine's elders weren't shown here, though.

    I think Kaburagi the Blackthorn gym referee was meant to be the anime's version of one of those dragon elders actually. Granted, he didn't do much here except explain the Dragon Holy Land's history to Ash's group, but he was a decent stand-in. :3

    I didn't see the Gym attendant as anything special, nor did he seem to be the show's version of one of the elders. I just thought we should've seen elements of Crystal version's Dragon's Den here.

    It was satisfying to see Satoshi versus Ibuki at the Fusube Gym begin, although I knew in advance how things would go downhill via an interruption. Still, I liked Kingdra versus Pikachu and Yorunozuku, as well as how Sohnano stole the Rocket-dan's meal. It's a shame that the wild Kairyu got taken advantage of, however.
