Yay finally we arrive at the location of May's next Contest competition! We haven't seen any Contest action since the Verdenturf Convention. Loved that Drew appeared and that May was trying to get his attention by showing off her two ribbons although I think Drew still had more. Then he got swamped by a crowd of his adoring fans, it was like something out of a Shipping fic
Then we met one the COTD, an older lady who seemed to be interested in Contests as well as possibly May's dad Norman. It was funny to see those other fangirls approach May just to admire Norman. Seeing May and the lady getting to know each was interesting, it was the typical backstory before the major Contest. The scene with Borck imagining himself cooking for pretty girls was a riot! He's always thinking such odd thoughts. I was interested in the COTD lady's team which consisted of Flareon and Lairon; two Pokemon that were distinct opposites.
Watching Drew practicing at night with his new Masquerain was interesting since it knew an awesome Water based appeal. Team Rocket interfered right when May was about to practice with her newly caught Bulbasaur which kind of ticked me off since they always appear at the worst times. It took a combination of Pikachu, Lombre, Mudkip, Bulbasaur, and Flareon to send them packing and the episode ended with no drama. I was disappointed. 7/10
This episode was 'meh'.
I was enjoying the battle between May and the COTD until TR stole their ribbons, but that was about it.
This episode was ok... It was cool to see Masquerain and Lairon for the 1st time, very cool Pokemon! This was the episode with the weird TC - Arbok evolving into Seviper... It was cool to see Flareon again. Savannah looks to be a great opponent for May in the Contest. It was interesting and different to see TR trying to steal others' ribbons instead of Pokemon for a change. It was definitely odd that May said she won the Fallarbor town contest with Skitty instead of Beautifly.
Well, this was an okay episode. The MFP or whatever they were called weren't as annoying as I thought that they would be. This really wasn't a memorable episode even though it introduced the Grand Festival rules.

Strange that I never seen this episode before. I think that around the time this episode got aired, I missed a lot of episodes that aired and therefore lost touch where the anime was. I actually enjoyed this episode a lot and I thought this MFP and Drew were both cool and enjoyable to watch. I always enjoyed the prequels to contests episodes - they are or interesting or comic, and in this case, they are both.
I swear, if Drew doesn't stop doing that thing with his hair, I'm going to break all his arms!
I'm exaggerating, obviously. But seriously, that hair flick he does irritates me a bit.
Okay, so this was the episode with the (in)famous "Arbok evolves in to Seviper" mistake.
Just like the people who can't let it go that Misty won't ever return to the show as a permanent, main character, people need to let this episodes TC mistake go, as well.
It's probably the only one (so far, I'm not done AG yet) of these TC mistakes people seem to go all "BRING ME THE HEAD OF EVERY EMPLOYEE WHO WORKS FOR 4KIDS! THEY'LL PAY FOR THEIR CRIMES!!!"
Yeah, I agree, it's a big mistake to make, but it's really nothing to lose your marbles over.
Sorry for the rant.

Savannah and the other women who were fans of contests were really interesting and I was happy to see Drew again, plus his Masquerain was cute unlike the ones in the games. I liked how this episode served as contest prep.
It was a nice episode overall.Arbok evolves into Seviper!?!What a mistake!Good to see Drew again!
May kind of seemed big headed here and Drew owning a Masquerain caught me off guard because it was such an ugly Pokemon for him. 7.5/10
Nice to see May act confident for this Contest even though she kind of overdid it + I didn't think Lairon suited Savannah's team.
I've gotta say it's always a pleasure to see Drew in an episode. These two Contest episodes may not have had as many ContestShipping hints, but I still love the interaction between May and Drew. Savannah was a great COTD for the episode, too.
I loved Savannah and Sandra's relationship, the realness of it. How children are embarrassed when their parents make scenes with strangers, but are always by their side and supportive when it matters. This episode makes it clear to me that each time I see Drew, I like him less and less. It's not his voice (which is what I normally focus on), it's his existence. His character in its entirety. He bothers me really badly.
