Why why why were they following Brocks directions? Hello? Max has a POKéNAV so they won't get losted! Oh wells I'll let it slide because Steel types finally got some love!
Steel Valleys a way cool and seemingly tough place so I wish it were in the games! Skarmory is one of my unofficial favorites so I liked how it got a lot of screentime here. And I SO knew that voice Torkoal was looking for was a Steelix!
Team Idiot wasn't to much of a bother here thankfully. May finally got in some battle time with Torchic and Skitty which pleased me. They need exp ya know!
When exactly did Ash catch Torkoal though? Another off-screen capture ala Lapras I guess?
3 / 5
But that 3 is close to a 4 cause of all the Steel loving! This was a good nice solid episode. But Ash, please remember Torkoal can also use Iron Defense!
