Team Rocket was beyond hilarious in this episode and I liked how the dub changed up their dialogue. Additionally, Brock's comment about Chuck and the Cianwood City Gym as "Ewww....yeesh!" was pretty funny, too.
That being said, Ash was a complete jerk in this episode, Brawly's "surfer speak" that the dub added was just plain annoying...it's one of the worst episodes in AG, or arguably even in the series. I was happy he lost, which is pretty messed up, but Ash had it coming.
The dub didn't do its best to compensate for the otherwise awful writing of this episode, so combine the two and you get one of the worst episodes ever.

"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now." -- The Best Ash: OS Ash, ESS
