Wow I was sad when Misty had to leave to Cerulean city and her flashback montage made me almost cry. I liked that Ash saw Ho-oH once again however, plus his new clothes looked nice. :3

Misty's departure was mediocre IMO. Why didn't she at least confess that she liked Ash.

Misty leaving felt too sudden and the flashbacks could've been better. I wish Brock had left the show here instead. 6.5/10

I thought that the flashbacks were perfect honestly. I especially liked the emphasis on scenes that showed her with Ash cuz they had great chemistry together.

Misty leaving was such a sad event and even now I wish it didn't happen. My favorite scene was when Ash saw Ho-Oh again.

First off I loved all the shippyness here, especially the song and flashback. The battle animations in this episode were really good too and I loved the combined attack against the Rocket-dan and Pikachu's Thunderbolt later on. It was cool to see Houou again and I kind of feel that the Rocket-dan's second appearance was unnecessary but it was cool how Satoshi utilized Kasumi and Takeshi's gifts. Overall it was an enjoyable bittersweet episode.

Ugh, this episode was tearful. I cried when I first saw it due to Misty leaving, and also Misty's comments on her knowing how Ash finally feels about her hopefully will lead to a romance later on. Nice to see Ash decide to go to the Hoenn region after seeing Ho-oh again, too.

I found it sad at the part where they came to the point where the roads parted, and Ash was given the cloth and the food with the cutlery. I didn't think it would come of much significance, but when it did, I actually started crying. The closest I had come to crying before this was in "Pikachu's Goodbye", back in Kanto. When I thought about that episode, and how that was when the trio had first gotten together, I started crying even more!

I was kinda confused about those soccer guys, but it was hilarious when the one just cut open the net with scissors. The only thing I really didn't like was how Ash copied off of Gary by "starting on a new journey with only Pikachu."
