Heh, first time in a long time that I've heard the Challenger theme; very cool, really. Advanced Battle is nice, but it doesn't hold a candle to Challenger D=
Castform had such an adorable voice =D Very fitting, very cool. Ditto's voice was nice as well; shame Crawdaunt had a rather odd one D=
If anyone ever had any doubts, this episode is proof that TR is invincible. Being hit by actual lightning, not just Pikachu's attacks, is really quite a feat. Twice, even. And then, as if that weren't enough, at the end of the episode, all evidence points to them freezing to death and there they are in the next episode =O
Speaking of that, quite liked Jessie's line about Mother Nature and James' about Father Winter. Amusing
And wtf at their escape of the rings xD That looked pretty bloody insane, with their entire bodies contracting so impossibly.
And lastly, Meowth's interruption in the motto made me laugh as well; he did have a point, and look what happened as a result of Jessie and Hames ignoring him xD
Brock's girl sense turning off on Brody was funny xD
Speaking of which, Brody was quite good at keeping his disguise throughout the episode. There were a lot of moments when I thought he'd unmask himself; I haven't ever seen this episode before, after all, nor have I read the guide or seen the pictures.
And I quite liked the overall plot of this episode; I dunno what it is, but there's something that appeals to me about the good guys escaping from a building swarming with bad guys D8 Coupled in with the fact that Brody actually wins in this episode, it kept me quite entertained.
....Eh, despite the concept of weather control, I still find the idea of a machine that alters weather a bit farfetch'd. But oh well =/
9.1 out of 10
Not sure if this counts as filler or an episode that contributes to the plot, but either way, I liked it; quality AG, IMO.
