    Can't Beat The Heat!

    Half Way into his battle with Gary, Ash is starting to feel the pressure and must continue to battle hard, especially against Gary's Blastoise. Will Ash beat Gary?

    I think that Ash had the bigger advantage when it came to skill and creativity.

    I'm glad that Ash won the battle!

    I've been wondering something for ages...
    Ash used Tauros, Heracross, Bayleef, Snorlax, Charizard and Muk in the battle BUT Pikachu was sitting on the bench. How could Ash have 7 Pokemon with him? The maximum that a trainer can carry is 6...

    Yes, but he wasn't carrying it, technically.

    Howewer, in episode 013 (Mystery of the lighthouse, I guess) Ash had 6 Pokémon and after the capture of Krabby, it was sent to PC. And Pikachu wasn't "carried". There was a time lapse, which was 20 sec. max. So how can this be explained? Hmm...

    Anyway, I could watch this episode over and over and over again. Especially just after the part, where Charizard takes Blastoise down with Seismic Toss. Everyone (Ash, Gary, Misty/Brock/Pikachu, the cheerleaders, Delia Ketchum/prof. Oak, Harrison, Mac(e)y/Jackson, Goodshow, Harrison, the audience...) are watching eagerly and the music is great at that part. I'm really glad that I have it on video.

    But Pikachu was sitting with Misty and Brock, and not with Ash. So, I believe this is the ONLY time that Pikachu hasn't actually been with Ash!

    I'd love to know what the f*ck was up with this battle. Not just this episode, but the whole damn battle. It started off so well in the previous episode... Team Ota, I believe. animated the first bit. Nidoqueen looked great there.

    And then this episode started, and what a disgusting let down. *shakes head* We had OHKO afer OHKO, and for what? A measly last battle against Blastoise that SUCKED HARD? >_>

    The only damn good thing about this episode was the Jun'ichi cameo. -_-

    I think this was the last time Delibird appeared. I wonder why it didn't follow TR to Hoenn.

    I agree wholeheartedly.

    I was a bit disappointed Umbreon wasn't in his team of six I must admit, it was his trademark Johto pokémon, but Pikachu wasn't in Ash's so happened on both sides.

    The battle was great IMO which is consolation for Gary losing I suppose, especially the Blastoise/Charizard finale, although it was a but predictable. I know Seismic toss looks good in the animé, but really it's been overdone too many times now with battles against Blaine, Clair, and now Gary. Although it took it's toll on Blaziken in the next episode when Blaziken used flamethrower to soften the landing and going on to win it.

    Disappointed Ash didn't go on to win the whole tournament, his battle with Harrison could have gone either way, but the writers were too scared to let him go that far I think.

    So that's Gary's last ever tournament? Sad. I'm still in total shock after that defeat. Can't get over it. Leave me alone....

    I do wonder if we'll ever see a Pikachu Vs. Umbreon rematch. I remember being shocked when this episode first aired that neither Pikachu nor Umbreon were in the battle.

    It's like the writers were saving that rematch for a later time, but now I don't think they'll ever battle again since it's been so long.

    Charizard vs Blastoise, classic. And the trainers were the Anime equivelants of Red and Blue, too (game Red and Blue, not Manga).

    I loved that battle. It's a shame that we didn't get to see Pikachu vs Umbreon, though.

    Ash and Gary were really awesome in this battle. It's interesting that Ash kept losing pokemon faster than Gary but ended up beating him anyway with Charizard, but by contrast he kept defeating Harrison quickly and ended up losing to him. At least one way or another this was a great end to Ash and Gary's long rivalry. I liked how Gary used a technique Ash taught him too. I'm glad they brought Team Rocket's debt storyline to an end with this episode too, though I really miss delibird.

    I still can't stand the fact that Gary is a researcher now and not a trainer ><

    Yeah, I was wondering that too. I thought seeing Shigeru's Blackie in "Power Play" was foreshadowing Pikachu's possivble battle with it in the Johto League. Then again, the writers have never been too good at foreshadowing. They seem to just make stuff up as they go along... you know, like how Congress works.

    ...

    Congress thinks like Johto writers! WE'RE DOOM'D!

    Charizard vs. Blastoise was legendary, and the music during the final Seismic Toss was the best music in the series! Then again, how many hydro pumps did Blastoise get?!

    The Charizard-Blastoise was one of teh best battles i've seen all series. It was definitely better than any Hoenn battle i've seen or Battle frontier match. I do feel that it was cheap, and Blastoise should have won. However, the orchestration of that match made up for it.

    A great battle to the finish. It was great to see Gary and Ash make amends to each other in the end.

    Believe it or not, this is the first time i've seen the Johto league episodes, because they were showing them all week on Cartoon Network. And I gotta say they were good.

    The battle between Ash and Gary really surprised me. I always thought Ash battled Gary with his weak team, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Phanpy and Bulbasaur. But he had his evolved formed and heavy-hitter Pokemon on his team and didn't even have Pikachu. It was great that all his Pokemon made special appearances.

    A 10/10 for me seeing as how this is the first time I've seen it.


    "My Popularity in the Pokemon Universe continues to shine like the Aura that is with me. A full-feature movie, 4 two-parter episodes from the Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos anime sagas, a 5-episode arc featuring my trainer Korrina, 3 appearances in the Smash Bros games and a Poke spokespearson for the Pokemon Trading Card commercials and the upcoming Pokken Fighters game. May I soon reach the fame that belongs to Pikachu"
