    They did a version of 'There's No Place Like Home' already with 'No Place Like Hoenn' way back in Pokemon Advanced... so I don't think they'll use that one.

    But the first two are awesome titles... The Fake Family Face-off! a favourite though

    Angry

    How about "The Worst Episode in the History of the Anime".

    I'm already hating this episode. It's the episode that made me into an anti-May fan.
    -1/10

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Oh grow up. Give some good reasonings as to why this episode was bad.

    "Tunnel Vision" is the worst one. :|

    Meowth and Wobbuffet dressed as Haruka and Masato were hilarious. The battles were neatly done, especially Grovyle against Golduck. I thought the whole decleration of Haruka being the victor because of Torchic knocking Satoshi out was hilarious. Especially when she started shouting for Torchic to use "Hinoko" (Ember) rapidly in a chibi-ized style. XD

    I'm entitled to my opinions. I don't have to defend them to you.

    Opinions only matter when you have something to back them up. Just flat out saying something's stupid without any justified reasoning is called bashing.

    Was it because May unfairly beat Ash? because I didn't find that fair either... but then I'm slightly biased to Ash because I adore him

    I on the other hand am looking forward to this episode, I like the idea of seeing Ash torched by mistake

    Technically she didn't win. The woman only declared her as the winner because she was biased towards the daughter of Senri. Even Masato pointed out that she was supposed to knock out Subame rather than Satoshi. XD

    I had an idea that was what it was... Taillow dodged the attack right?

    I read the summary and even I thought Max was unhappy with that 'win' but wasn't he disgruntled over May getting all the attention anyway?

    The picture of Meowth and Wobbuffet as May and Max looked funny! If Ash didn't realise it was Team Rocket, it'd be really weird.

    Were the people of that town on something. How could they explain how May shrunk and Max grew and turned blue?

    Yes, the battle is the straw that broke the Camerupts back for me. If I was Ash I would told the locals shut their collective traps and let me do my job. Preying on a trainer who has a bunch of tired Pokemon, he was tired, and then could here himself think with all the shouting. May should have known better. It was dishonorable for Ash and May. After that, I had no respect for May.

    It's pokemon...the people NEVER notice when someone changes skin color...plus their only 14 or 15...they arn't adults so stop treating them like they are.

    Yes, you are right. Honestly, It was weird for me. People couldn`t see, that "Max" has blue skin XD and "May" is very small and has cat ears. But how Slow said, its a pokemon and people just don`t see some things.

    I found it hilarious how the group started to notice that "Masato" was shouting "Sonansu" when the town's people didn't. XD

    And seriously, Satoshi doesn't have a hot headed temper. So the town declared her as the winner when he got knocked out by Ember. So what? You make it sound like they stayed in favor of Haruka the whole episode. They were fans of Senri's whole family. They were biased. It's not Haruka's fault. The town then recognized Sato--okay, rather Pikachu's feats when they beat the Rocket Gang. The town is filled with fanboy idiots. No need to hate Haruka just cause the town's extremely biased.

    Were it a REAL battle judged by a League Rep., the battle would have kept going since Taillow was still able to battle.

    Why oh why did I cause mass grief and frustration by mentioning the battle *cringes*

    Sorry!

    So if the battle continued who would have won? of course knowing that poor Ash was exhausted and having a raging headache from screaming biased Norman fans?

    Considering Taillow wasn't tired and Haruka most likely had Torchic waste a bit of energy doing that huge Ember, I'm sure Taillow would've won. Especially since it was winning in the first place.

    I don't see why Ash didin't force the issue that the battle wasn't over. Considering how he went through a lot to get some matches, he was a real wuss on this one.

    Ash was tired and had a headache (kind of not hard to with screaming Norman fans around)... I think that was the real reason!

    Do you actually think they were going to listen if he went on outrage on them? e_e

    It's a city full of the family fanatics...not a snowball's chance in hell they were going to let him go on. Still, just let her have the one victory...she has a diffrent path from what Satoshi has...so the challenges are going to be diffrent.

    I have a feeling that I'm going to hate May after this episode. I can't believe she basically cheated against Ash and didn't even say it was un-fair.

    Oh for god's sake. He's not overcompetetive like you guys make him out to be. She didn't cheat. She only won because the judge was overbiased of Haruka. The match wasn't an official one. He knows Haruka doesn't get that many victories so it was best to let her be happy about her training for once. Get over it, people. :|

    What's so hard to believe? If he did, it would have been his word vs the word of an angry mob of fanboys. The smart move was to keep his mouth shut.

    Okay I just want to laugh here... I feel really sorry for Edward Elric...

    In point form (not that I've seen this episode)

    -Ash didn't get beaten because Taillow was still able to fight
    -May 'wins'
    -Mob goes nuts because they're Norman fans
    -Ash - well he's got a humongous headache from screaming fans so it's kind of hard for him to put to much of a fight

    Plus didn't TR butt in not long after that battle?

    When I first read the summary I thought it was unfair, but I love hearing the opinions of other people who've seen it in Japanese and I except their word.

    Plus it's only an anime so you know *shrug*
