    Jessie's line about using a tissue always made me laugh.

    TR were absolute terrible to Meowth in this episode. Poor guy. At least he knows now James sorta kinda has his back.

    The animation team for this was pathetically horrible. Sneasel's so hardcore, it's very difficult to make it look bad. ...they succeeded.
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    My second-favorite rival appeared in this episode! I always thought Harrison's personality was really cool because he was so calm and collective. Another really good point was to appearance of Blaziken and Harrison capturing Sneasel - giving us the audience a clear assumption that Harrison's team is really strong. The whole concept behind the flame and shrine was nicely explained too. It also lol'd when Jessie threw Meowth against Sneasel and when Meowth disguised itself as an Sneasel. A good prequel to a prequel/opening of the Silver Conference if you think about it.

    That Sneasel was tough. It was amazing how it defeated so many Trainers, but when the gang comes, it gets captured. I like that. And this is the episode where I first saw Blaziken, I fell in love with its design.

    Good episode, although Ash looking up Sneasel on the Pokedex was funny considering he saw one in the fourth movie. Nice to see Misty take the initiative and battle Machoke, she should have battled again the second time. Harrison was an alright character, even though he just appeared randomly. Jessie is hilarious as usual and it was nice to see Meowth get revenge on her for booting him out of TR.

    Wow, I can't believe TR tried to kick out Meowth but I guess I shouldn't be surprised as they are villains!

    It was epic seeing someone from Hoenn (Harison) It would have been epic at the time also!

    Misty owned that Machoke, you go girl!

    Love it!

    Actually, so far (I'm not quite done Master Quest at this point, so more might appear (also, assuming I'm not missing any more that appeared in some past episodes)), Blaziken is the third introduced Hoenn Pokemon. Kecleon appeared back toward the end of Johto League Champions.

    Anyway, it was neat seeing Blaziken for the first time before the end of the Johto seasons.

    It was cool seeing Sneasel as well as finding out about the sacred flame's origin. I liked Harrison so even tho I wish Jessie had caught Sneasel instead, I didn't mind as much that Harrison did instead. :3

    Sneasel would've ended up useless under Jessie's care, though. At least Harrison would put it to greater use...

    A Sneasel owned by Team Rocket would fit the bill, indeed I feel if Sneasel had been Gen 1, it would have likely ended up playing Meowth's character. But maybe that's the thing, it's redundant, Meowth is the weaselly villain Pokemon of the show. And what's more he can vent it out better due to talking.

    Maybe this is why most Sneasels in the anime such as this one tend to end up a bit of an antithesis for the guy, being a successfully devious, fearsome and antagonistic Pokemon where poor Meowth is just bumbling, jaded and pitiful. And of course Meowth hates nearly all of them.

    Not a bad episode. The trio were uncharacteristically lacking in camaraderie in some early episodes, weren't they? The payoff at the end was hilarious though. Other funny bit was Meowth trying to reveal the bomb to Sneasel and tactfully suggest shrewd ways off outgambitting Jessie's plan such as-*cue 'BOMB? GET AWAY FROM ME!!!' shove from Sneasel*

    Sneasel sounded kinda creepy with that reverb, and Machop and Machamp were laughably useless 'bodyguards'.

    We met Harrison here and learned about the Ho-Oh flame but I was bummed out that Sneasel was captured by him since it fit Jessie's style more. 6/10

    I've discovered that Sneasel is voiced by Jimmy Zoppi. Think about that while listening to Maddie Blaustein's Meowth complain about being replaced in this episode (and Eric Stuart's James being a tad averse to the idea as well). XD

    I dunno about that. If Jessie had gotten it, I think she would've benefited from its type combination, although like I said Harrison catching it instead was ok with me any ways. ^^;

    Nah, this was the sadly around the start of the long duration where TR were completely ineffectual. Types, species, whatever, they're just there to get beaten up. It's probably the reason TR never bothered catching a rock/ground type Pokemon to counter Pikachu.

    Capturing a Sneasel during BW or XY might have had benefits however.

    Well that's probably true. I just waned to be optimistic, tho looking back it would've seemed off for Jessie to get a Johto pokemon so close to the beginning of Hoenn I guess.

    The Sneasel here was catty, which I admired. The introduction of Harrison from Hoenn and his Blaziken was the best scene.
