...I always that the Torchic/Combusken was male. When was it ever confirmed that it was female? O_o;
Anyway, yeah they used the Same VA.
As for the episode itself, I think this one totally hit the mark. It was funny in parts, and the battle scenes were just great. Also, I hope as well that the thing with Corphish and Combusken is expounded upon more. They've done a great job developing the Pokemon themselves and not just the trainers in the Houen Arc, and I hope they continue that.
10/10 This episode was, in every sense of the word, perfect. Now to just wait for the lovely Winona to show up....^_^
