    "Pros and Con artists" was awesome.

    What impressed me the most about this episode was how well scripted the battles were. They weren't cheap battles either, Medicham using the Ice punch on the floor to deflect Roselia's Solar beam was really great.

    What was also good is it wasn't a cheap cop out to have May win. They made May's battle against Grace believeable, even though Grace had so much more experience. Beautifly imobilizing Medichams arms so it couldn't use Meditate, as well as the Silver wind to it's back making it hurt it's knee. Really a great strategy.

    Really loved the battles and animation in this episode. I knew the contests episodes would be great, they're just as interesting as the GYM episodes.

    Bottom line, if you didn't like this episode, I guess you don't like well scripted battles. Also goes to show you that battling in Contests is just as exciting as real battles.

    Excellent excellent Episode.

    -It was a Contest Episode. What's not to love? >_<

    -The animation was awesome, specifically Medicham's Ice Punch. Man, can that thing be launched!

    -All the attacks were expertly said, no foul-ups as far as I can tell.

    -Very emotional too. The big climax with Beautifly versus Medicham was heart-racing.

    -Trainer's Choice: Not bad, very simple today. I know some people will complain that it was too simple, but hey, you can't have toughies all the time.

    -And... what's this? Who's that Pokemon? Why, it's Paras of course, but what's the occasion? It was certainly in an odd place.

    This Episode gets V's seal of approval, not that my seal is anything special: [Approved]

    That who's that pokemon is obviously KidsWB's doing. It clearly wasn't part of the episode, KidsWB played an old clip from some Kanto episode with Paras. (hence the old design)

    I wonder if KidsWB is going to put old clips like that before the commercial breaks end.

    OMG, this was onem of the best episodes ever!!!! Medicham's voice rocked as usual, and the battles were amazing. Jessie and Dustox were funny, and it's good to see TR have more of a role than the usual comedy relief!! Grace and May's battle was excellent!!!! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

    Overall rating:
    9.8 out of 10!!!!
    Second best episode in AG so far!!! Keep up the AWESOME work!!!

    I did recognize that it was an older version, but I'd like to know the reason for showing it right now of all times? I mean, was there a demand for it? Did KidsWB have a craving for WTP? Was there a roulette wheel involved?

    You could tell May would win. The combinations were clever, but I doubt Grace would actually realize the way Solarbeam would reflect off the ice. The strategy most of the characters had were smart. Drew was still snobbish, I can't stand his voice. By the way, what the heck was the Who's That Pokemon with Paras about? Overall, I only give it a 3/10. BTW, I use my own rating system, and it didn't score that high. Otherwise, what I post is comments.

    Well, let's see if they put another who's that pokemon during "Cheer Pressure" in half an hour.

    It'll be amusing to see if it's Jigglypuff, then I know they're going in order from "The Problem with Paras".

    Oh, where to start? I loved it of course. There's been a near perfect episode each week for three weeks now.

    I actually liked watching these battles. Watching them attack wasn't the best part of the show, but it was cool for once. (Well, it was a contest, why wouldn't it be?) I didn't get to see May win though. My sister came in right as Beautifly and Medicham were heading right for each other. :/

    I can't believe I didn't get to see the end! *sigh* Anyways, May and Drew looked cute standing next to each other watching, and it seemed like May was disappointed when Drew lost, though I know it was probably because she realized how strong Grace was. Also, May's combinations were very beautiful, and Roselia was good too!

    My only complaint is that they dove right into the contest at the very beginning, but I guess they have to do that when they only have 30 minutes.

    Anyways, it's one of my very favorites. 10/10.

    Can someone please tell me exactly what happened and what was said in the last five minutes? XD

    I probably won't get to see any of Cheer Pressure.

    3 out of 10? Jebus, what the hell kind of ratings do you give the johto-ish filler episodes, -3000 out of 10? >_O;

    This is an episode that screams out 'high quality'. A decent pokémon battle, well thought out strategy, lots of great animation sequences, tons of character development, emotional scenes and a truckload of breath-taking moments.
    THESE are what make the contest episodes a great addition to the story. And with such an intense battle such as this, there is no denying that. Quality all the way, and I'd go as far as saying this battle alone totally thrashes Ash's first few gym battles in Houen.

    Well, right after the part you stopped at, Medicham and Beautifly both were hurt badly after crashing into each other, May wins, of course.
    May does her victory pose and everybody cheers! *commercials*
    May is outside talking to Grace, and Grace congratulates her on the fantastic battle. Drew comes in, and also congratulates her too, but then he gets cocky and says "If you were against me, you probably wouldn't have won." Max complains, and says he still has his bad attitude, but May says it doesn't really bother her. Ash yells about his next Gym, and May says she can't wait for the next contest!

    Well... I LOVED IT! The battle was very intense all the way. May & Beautifly were just awesome! I was rather surprised May could put up such a great battle because I would've expected that kind of battle from someone experienced. Comes to prove May isn't such a newbie anymore. I'm looking forward to her future contests! Just as interesting as Gym Leader battles; if not more. Beauty, talent, strategy, and power all in one. You go, Beautifly! ^__^

    It was an awesome battle using Ice Punch to rikocha the Solarbeam to hit right back at Roselia. The match between May and Grace was also good as well just Grace laugh annoy me. I was a bit suprise in seeing who's that pokemon when they already got a trainer choice but it been a loooong time since we last saw Paras.

    Was it just me, or did Grace yell "Use Hi Jump!" in the beginning? Yeah, they showed Jiglypuff in Cheer Pressure. What's with that? The old WTP animations was horrible, and now we get Trainer's Choice, so why show it? Anyway, VERY good episode, better than Cheer Pressure, at any rate!

    9.5/10

    Reasons for that...

    1. Almost like a nickname. I'm sure Medicham has used the attack many times before. Saying "Hi Jump" is as equally as good as saying the whole thing, because both Trainer and Pokemon know what to expect.

    2. Mouth flap constraints.

    This episode was good. I Really liked Grace, and the battles in this episode were better than in others, but some things I didn't like was;
    1. The Ice Punch on the floor thing. I thought it was too cheap.
    2. Drew was in it.

    Though I loved seeing Drew get beat, I give it a 7/10, it would have been higher, but Drew brought it down for me.

    Great episode! I'll admit that Dustox's rainbow thing was cool, even though it wasn't really Dustox. The battles were great, and the whole thing was terrific, even though I knew that May would win. Gosh, Grace looks like a Wobbufet when she laughs like that! XD
    The Who's That Pokemon was......unexpected. It was so random! Why so early? Why the old style? Why Paras? WHY EVEN PUT IT THERE????

    So yeah, I give it an 9/10.

    Don't forget the rose. I'd be interested to know the exact dialogue around it in the dub.

    She asked if the rose for Beautifly and his answer was "...Yeah, something like that.." Not sure if that was a part of the original.

    And apparently 4Kids didn't wanna translate Psybeam. :\ Stupid considering rainbow and Psybeam have the same amount of syllables and can share the same amount of mouthflaps. Musashi was combining Psybeam with Poison Sting. :\

    Whewww Good Eppy yeah what ETR said was right (I swear I felt like barfing...personal reasons)

    This one was a good episode I really liked the battle against Grace using Silver Wind Tackle and String shot and Gust she used them perfectally I loved the tornado and the fight overall.Drew losing was so funny The Ice Punch and the floor and reflecting was good.It was a good episode in all one of my favs so far.
    Thanks to whoever made this. <3

    Actually, you didnt prove squat. You see, I find a being, all-powerful, all-knowing, constant, eternal, residing outside of space, time, and logic to be a lot more logical than a big explosion created the universe by accident.
    Logic, eh? Also, note the "residing outside of space, time and logic to be more logical" part.

    Something residing out of logic to be more logical... Nice.
