    I'm glad that Gary came to Ash's rescue in this episode, and Ash got to carry the torch again (did he do it again in Hoenn? I don't even remember the pictures). I really liked Ash's battle against furret too. Ever since I had furret in Crystal, I've been really fond of the pokemon. At least it and Pikachu both got some serious fighting in. Too bad we didn't get to see more of Phanpy's battle, though, it hadn't really fought well up to that point.

    This was one of my favorite episodes, I guess I just like Ash straped in ropes traped in a closet by Team Rocket, looks major hott on him XD
    Animation was good. Wish they'd show this one more often, I miss it =[

    Although Ash and Gary are rivals, Ash was saved by Gary after he was tied by Team Rocket. I guess they gained each other's respect.

    Though it had one of 4Kids many errors when they called Furret a ground type.

    When I asked Jesus how much he loved me, he said "This much."
    Then he stretched out his arms...and died for me.

    I thought it was nice to see Ash and Gary finally respect one another. It was nicee of Gary to come and help Ash while he was in trouble with Team Rocket. I thought Ash got a little lucky in his first screening battle with Salvador and his Furret. Furret was basically winning the entire match, but Ash made a lucky move by having Pikachu jump on Furret's back. I thought it was cool to see Ash be able to run the torch again like he did in Indigo Plateau.

    I noticed an error that Misty said. She said that Furret was a ground type when in reality, it is a normal type.

    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!

    So, things at the Johto League Silver Conference really picked up right here! Ash signed all of the tedious paperwork to be able to formally compete in the League and he also saw Mr. Goodshow again. I really like Goodshow since he seems good-natured. Ash's battle in the screening round was my favorite part. Furret was never really featured until it battled Ash's Pikachu, and it fought a heard battle I wasn't expecting to see. After that was done, we got to see that Gary and Harrison, Ash's rivals in the League, had made it past that round too. The rest of the episode was quite forgettable though. We saw some main characters watching the opening ceremony of the League and Ash and Gary helping to deliver the Ho-Oh flame, but that was sort of it. 7/10.

    This was an ok episode... It was cool seeing Ash being the final torch runner. Pikachu vs Furret was a very cool battle. Too bad they didn't show much of the other 2 battles. It was great that Gary was helping Ash out, and they gained respect for each other.

    39/100

    I really liked the match between Pikachu and Furret, even though I think Ash didn't deserve to win the match, he was very lucky! Gary had a nice appearance in this episode, and I liked Ash having the torch. 10/10.

    I really liked this episode in a way that it really gave the Silver Conference a good start. It was great to see Gary at the beginning teasing Ash again lol. It was also great to see other recurring characters like Goodshow again. The battle between Pikachu and Furret was really intense for just preliminary standards. I also liked how Gary and Ash got together in the second part and started to have mutual respect for each other. Moments like this made me really miss Gary after he decided to become a Pokémon researcher.

    I hated how the dub made Misty refer to Furret as a Ground type Pokemon. But, I will give that Furret some respect. It sure was tough. Well, I was going to do it anyways, I really like Furret. xD

    Good episode, nice to see Gary again and how mature he's become since the last time we saw him. I liked how he became friends with Ash, but they're still rivals. Loved the battle between Pikachu & Furret, it was strong and I liked how there was a sand storm after the electric attack. Mr. Goodshow is funny, but very knowledgeable.

    The Johto league begins in this episode, I thought it gave the Silver Conference a good start. After registering, Ash meet up with his rival Gary was in the Silver Coference .... It was nice to see Ash and Gary finally respecting each other. Seeing the Pokemon league president Mr. Goodshow was nice as well.
    Ash and Salvador's battle was interesting, I liked how Pikachu jumped on Furret's back and used Thunderbolt on it. I thought it was cool to see Ash be able to run the torch again like he did in Indigo Plateau.
    During the battle, Misty said that Furret is a ground type, but it's actually Normal type! Oh well .....that was one of the silly errors of the 4kids dub.
    Team Rocket, as always was trying to capture Pikachu and interfere in Ash's business, but they got blasted off ...... Again!
    I liked the scene where Ash was running with the torch at the end, it was cool.

    Great episode indeed as we see the mutual respect between Satoshi and his rival Shigeru. Love seeing that Rocket is actually disguise as a worker just like the Indigo league and when the boss kick them out when he discovers the four stealing food. Rocket trying to stop Satoshi getting the torch was unnecessary in my opinion.

    Furret is a normal type, not a ground type.

    Cool to see that Ash and Gary have a mutual respect for each other at this point.
