    Very good episode to bad Torchic had its food stolen by Corphish, but at least it won't happen again now that it's evolved into a Combusken. Nice to see Grovyle use a show of force to separate Torchic and Corphish, and what a battle between Combusken and Breloom going from using special attacks to using just fisticuffs.

    One word to describe this episode: shocking.

    Way back before I became a May fan, I used to assume that she would scream when she saw the cute Torchic evolve. But I'm happy for the evolution. It transformed the clumsy and ditzy Torchic into something more assertive and strong, and it showed that the writers were intent on making May a competent trainer rather than some disposable ditzy sidekick. And seeing it fight fist to fist against my favourite Pokemon, Breloom, sealed this as one of my favourite AG episodes.

    Good episode. It's nice to see Pokemon get riled up at each other and not just the trainers.

    Loved it because I always knew Shroomish and Breloom had a bad side, and this episode proves it!

    I was sad that May's cute little Torchic evolved into an ugly Combusken. I was even more disappointed that said Combusken hardly got any action in Hoenn.

    Torchic really stood out in this episode. 6/10

    Pretty good episode, I liked the Breloom/Combensken fight, it was nice yo see Torchic evolved (Although it felt like it didn't have too much scenes). It was funny when TR didn't realize what Breloom/Combenksen said for a moment.

    There were so many funny moments in this episode, where do I begin?

    The first funny moment was when Torchic and Corphish were fighting, I like how Grovyle was just relaxing while it was happening and then stepped in to break it up. The second funny moment was when TR was getting chased by those Breloom, ran into Ash & Co. and just ate all their food. And the third funny moment was when when Ash got into a brawl with the Breloom, that cracked me up!

    I also like how Corphish protected Torchic from those Breloom and then it evolved into Combusken and had that outstanding battle with them.

    This was truly a fantastic episode and was my favorite one in AC.

    This episode was good. It was great to see a Breloom for the 1st time. I like Breloom way better than Shroomish. It was cool to see Torchic evolve into Combusken. It was a great idea, it allowed the two fighting types to clash, and Combusken had the advantage. It was funny when Combusken gave a scary look to Corphish to keep Corphish away from its food.

    The episode was very surprsing. All kinds or crazyness and junk going on. It was nice to see Torchic evolve. I loved the fight too. Fried Chicken vs. Lettus and Tomatoes. Of course Combusken won.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Now THAT is how to make an episode. Despite being a 'focus' episode for Torchic, it really showcased most all of the main Pokemon pretty well, one or two aside. The animation, especially in the fistfight, was exceptional.

    I am curious who Ash was planning on pitting against Breloom - Grovyle or Torkoal.

    Another merely "okay" episode. Combusken's design is so hideous and its evolution really came out of nowhere. really, Torchic barely battled much so far. I guess it's more of that good old off-screen training at work here.

    I really enjoyed this episode! Good to see Corphish and Torchic interaction, and the battle between Combusken and Breloom was great, especially the fist fight! Grovyle stopping Torchic and Corphish's fight was funny too! I believe Ash would have used Torkoal against those Breloom, well I hope it would! And it was so funny when Ash started fighting those Breloom I literally LOL'ed

    This episode was pretty hilarious and seeing Torchic evolve into Combusken was great. The whole comedy with Torchic and Corphish was great too and I especially laughed at the end when Corphish tried to steal from Combusken and Combuskes warning him not to do it.

    Although this episode focus between the two fighting Pokémon and develop the mutual respect but I think that Heigani should evolve instead of Achamo. Heigani did much of the hard work but Achamo barely contributed to the battle. Finally I like the scene that Heigani bullying Achamo while he was afraid when he tried to steal food from Wakasyamo. It is simply hilarious in my opinion.

    It was hilarious when all the Pokemon were fighting, and in the background you just see Grovyle chilaxin' by the tree. Not giving a single crap.

    Then, later, came the scene where Torchic evolved in to Combusken and had a pretty badass fight with a Breloom.
