    This is one of the best ever episodes IMO and also quite an upsetting episode. I hated it when the trio had to split up though.

    I loved the first half of the episode most of all, because it had lots of events + the trio hadn't split up yet. Then, i think that the second half was sorta eventful but not much happening It was nice to see Ho-oh again as well.

    I won't say anything about ash and Misty cuz non-pokeshippers won't like it. However, i'll just say i think it was a very shippy episode.

    Overall Rating: 9.5/10

    That was a beautiful, yet sad episode 'cause sooooooo many people left. One of my favorites was Gary Oak 'cause I liked it when he was soooo nice! Anyone else? His niceness makes me happy!

    I loved their last battle against The Invincible Pokemon Brothers (yeh rite) when they worked together to create that hugh tornado, lol.

    This is the saddest episode yet because of when Misty leaves and there is that song and all the flashbacks *sniff*

    I'm not a pokeshipper or an Advanceshipper (in fact I'm none of anything)... but I was really sad to see Misty leave! Seeing Ash cry is a bad thing

    I also love how Gary and Ash are now friends not rivals, that always bugged me.

    This episode was really sad. (you know that though!) I wish I could see it now, because when I saw it I had just gotten back into Pokemon and it didn't affect me as much as it would now.

    I agree that this was a very shippy episode. (though I wasn't thinking shippy at the time )

    I give it 9/10, but if I see it again I'm sure it'll be 10/10!

    a good episode.
    The song Misty sang was nice, Ash crying was sweet and the friendship between Ash and Gary is also cool !! And of course Ash's new clothes are cool !!

    9/10

    The dub flashbacks are different then the Japanese ones. Anyways, this was a good episode but I think they should have split up at the end and have had more of the episode about that.

    You didn't like Ash and Gary being rivals? Whoa, something we have in common!

    It's a combination of things, I didn't like how Prof. Oak was put in a situation because he likes both of them (although I think he favoured Gary, being his grandson of course, on a few occasions).

    The other is Gary was mean and obnoxious to Ash on countless occasions, it might (if Ash wasn't so stubborn ) have hurt Ash on some of those occasions which is why he fights so hard to win, acted the way he did in S1 and during the Johto region until the episodes during the League. (especially as now we have Gary asking Tracey and Prof. Oak what Ash is up to...)

    As for the episode, I thought it was really good, I like how Delia knew that her son was going on another adventure, I mean she didn't want him to go but she didn't mention it to him

    I cried pretty hard in this episode. Misty's goodbye made me cry a river. T_T Their battle was cool against those brothers. The trio put them in their place until Misty got to finish it in the hoso. (Go Misty!) 10/10

    This is offically my favorite Johto episode. T__T

    A complete tribute to all that is Pokeshipping. Yes, I DO know that the original Japanese eppie was not as glorious to us Pokeshippers, but I still died a little inside at the ending because it was so sweet!

    This was a really sad episode, I mean just seeing Misty and Brock leave (even though Brock returns 5 episodes later). But I think it sucks that we got cheated out in the dubbed version (as usual) with Misty's flashbacks. But then again, that's just my opinion!

    I don't mind as much... Cause it seemed to highlight her relationship with Ash, overall. Even knowing that there were originally flashes of different grouping pics, it was oh-so-sweet seeing just how well she obviously remembered her meeting and getting to know Ash.

    I think that helps us realize just how special Misty was to the show, and how special she thought Ash and the others were to her... =]

    You know I hope the rivalry continues into the future if the Japanese animators get round to it with the dispute with the voice actor and such, I want to see Gary get revenge!

    In the battle against the Invincible Pokémon Brothers, note how Ash says to Misty, something along the lines of "You are a great water pokemon trainer. You finish this battle, we'll just watch" implying that they will let Misty finish it herself, yet then they order more attacks from their Pokémon. Weird, huh? I think somebody has the case of i-have-to-do-every-battle-cause-i'm-a-spoiled-brat-itis and it isn't Brock or Misty.

    I feel sad! Kasumi is my favourite character. Why? I want to see her again with Satoshi. Kasumi really leaved him! It's so beautifule that Ash was crying. But Kasumi wasn't crying.. I almost cried. I will sad until she wiil travel with Satoshi again! Kasumi you are the best! Why she came back to Cerulean City when they met again in Advance Series? She could go with they! I have a question. The 394 episod isn't last episode, so Kasumi will arraive again! I hope it will come about!

    This is my favorite johtno one I love the song at the end....

    Goodbye
    Funny, how that's such a hard thing to say
    Now it's time to let go but never though I'd feel this way
    Promise not to cry be sad but we both knew I was lying
    Gotta fight back the tears cause I can't let you see me crying
    You're more than just my best friend
    What make my misty most of all
    In our final curtin call
    Is knowing that I won't see your face again.


    Goodbye
    Leaving is always so hard
    Now it's time to go, I can't believe my feelings
    I promised that I won't cry, even though I knew I will
    I hide my tears so you can't see how much this hurts
    You're more than my friend
    But maybe the worst thing is
    when I realized that
    I won't see you anymore

    Yeah this is my favorite Master quest, eopide.

    Yuppers, I liked this episode. The Ash and Gary thing was pretty cornball but meh. It was sort of sad, but it's not like I was crying or anything.

    Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever cried during a movie, show, nothing. The most are my eyes getting a bit watery, but that's about it.

    ANYWAY. Well, I did have SOME pet peeves with this episode for rather obvious reasons. Y'know, the flashback, and the song, etc. It was the flashback that just really killed me though. And in my personal and incredibly biased opinion, Pokeshipping was dropped. So that gets some major points. But meh, that's just my Anti-Pokeshipper talking.

    I saw the Sneak Peak before the episode aired, so I wasn't really that surprised or sad when Brock and Misty left because... I already knew. Not to mention, it's not like I'd be sad that Misty was getting the boot. So, well, I was fine about that. I'll admit though, I was a TEENSY bit sad seeing Misty leave. Sure she annoyed me, but she was still there.

    Plus, I liked the animation. I had just watched a rerun of a Kanto episode, and I couldn't believe how much better the animation got. I could have sworn there were some parts when Misty was about to hit Ash or pull Brock away from a girl and her arm got attached to a tree because of the blasted frames...

    But yeah, I liked this episode. So, I'll give it a 9.5/10. Just because of the added Pokeshippyness...

    I hardly notice the animation now although in the first episode when Ash first throws a pokeball, its totally red, top and bottom lol! I think Misty's leaving is sad because she lived with them so long. Generally this was one of the better episodes with plenty of characterization, however it stops rather short, as the middle has alot of junk like fighting the 'blue trio.' I also feel Gary has been going way out of character, and a better way to write him off from the series indefinitely could have been arranged without him becoming nice. Keep him obnoxious, maybe add some maturity, but don't make him kiss the ground on which Ash walks! Its incredible the way they had to write him off, while having him ask Ash to "Keep doing his best," in a way as corny as Misty. Really I like the show, and this could have been done better.
    Er-hem!...Congradulations, Ash, you and your pokemon are hall of famers!"

    I'll even admit this episode what kind of depressing. Although I think they over did the Ash and Misty issue again! and the song was nice but the lyrics were kinda corny. But nevertheless this episode was sad and then Ash making the decision to leave all his Pokemon and just take Pikachu was also sad as well.
