    Charizard vs. Blaziken was very good, but my biggest gripe with it is I always felt Charizard should have won this battle, so I wouldn't consider it a bad league loss, just annoyingly a plot device for Ash to travel in Hoenn instead of the writers ending his saga on a good note. As for the rest of the episode, it seemed rushed compared to Kanto's "Friends to the End", but Ash and Gary's rivalry having full closure was nice I suppose.

    Epic battle between Lizardon and Bursyam although I expected Satoshi to win and move on to the next round. It was a great chance to see him winning a league and become a Pokémon master so his story can come to a close. I am surprised that Kojiro did not go mad when the rocket used the bottle caps attacking the group.

    Well done to Harison, he is a deserving winner but I wish ash could have done it!

    Bye bye to Oak and Mom again, aww

    Poor Harrison not making it through though afterwards

    It was my first time seeing Prof Birch and he seems really cool, I like his methodology!

    It is nice how they led into the Hoenn region!

    The Misdreavous were cute and it was nice to see everyone working together!

    OMG, Gary has become a researcher, I never saw that one coming wow.

    This episode is full of twists and turns!

    Well done to John Dixon, he looked cute also!

    Where is the town he is from though?

    TR were funny at the end!

    TR were so epic, I am glad they are back!

    An awesome conclusion to a really epic battle between two fire type powerhouses!
    I thought for a minute the Charizard v. Blaziken battle was going to end in a tie.

    I was really sad when Officer Jenny drove away with Squirtle; I really wanted it to get Oak'd instead. Anyway, seeing Harrison lose to some random guy made me cackle, but I liked Professor Birch's cameo in Harrison's explanation. Anyway, I disliked the random Misdreavus drama as well as Gary's sudden interest in becoming a researcher.

    Shame Charizard didn't know any Flying-type moves back then.Maybe they could have given him an edge in this battle.At least Blaziken was unable to participate in the next battle due to its injuries.

    A nice battle between Ash and Harrison with Charizard vs Blaziken and a startup to Ash's journey to Hoenn when Harrison tells Ash he should go there. But disappointed that Ash lost because he had a type advantage against Blaziken but Charizard didn't have any Flying moves. At least Harrison lost the next battle and Ash and Gary finally became friends.

    Wow I remember thinking Ash would win cuz of Charizard's type advantage only to watch him lose instead. Harrison's Blaziken was still awesome however. I liked watching Gary's storyline develop and him wanting to become a researcher.

    Me too. And I facepalmed when Harrison lost to some random dude right after that match. Since he won against Ash, I wish he would've just won the whole League too.

    I definitely thought Harrison should've ended up as the league winner as well. The Dickson guy's team just didn't seem as good as Harrison's to me regardless that Harrison lacked Blaziken. ^^

    Lol at Ash losing to Harrison. Charizard had the clear type advantage, so how the hell did he lose...

    Because type advantage is not the end all be all in the anime as proven time and time again.

    The end of the Johto League felt bittersweet since Ash lost, but Blaziken got the attention he deserved so I liked that.

    My goodness. This episode may well have had the best battle in the Silver Conference in terms of looks and intensity. The animation was great and thankfully the Pokemon moved around a lot while performing their moves, although Lizardon's Seismic Toss still doesn't look as good as it did when it used it on Boober. Bashamo was an incredible battler too. It and Lizardon showed once again what a battle is like when performed between two final evolutions at an evenly matched high level.

    Even if Ash had won against Harrison, he'd still need to go through the semi-finals, which he coulda lost in anyway. Besides, Ash winning a League wouldn't make him a Pokemon Master.
