    This episode was brilliant! Totally awesome battle, Winona's Swellow was strong!
    I wonder why she never used her Skarmory in this battle aswell.

    Winona's Swellow didn't sparkle when it came out of it's Pokeball but Ash's Noctowl always used to when it was on his team.

    Episode was nice. Winona is so adorable She has a very nice personality and nice voice. Honestly, I think, she is more interesting than popular Flannery. What a pity, we can`t see her hair.

    A fight between Ash and Winona was fine, only I don`t understand, how Grovyle could beat Altaria. Altaria is a flying/dragon and it lost so quickly Its strange, that Ash`s pokemon have great Defence and GL`s pokemon are weak.

    I think this Gym Battle is my favorite one (Yes, including Kanto and Johto battles).
    The animation was great, all characters and Pokémon looked awesome (especially Grovyle). Winona was a really good Gym Leader - the strategy with Steel Wing as a defense for Thunderbolt was pretty neat^^.

    I can't really choose which round my favorite was - Grovyle vs. Altaria or Swellow vs. Swellow... Meh, they were both great!
    And of course - the music was good as always, I like it that they often use the Pokémon Heroes BGMs for Gym Battles.

    Run for your lives.

    This was truly one of the best gym battles ever - right up there with the Katsura rematch. Part of what makes it so great is the excellent animation. Too bad more important battles couldn't have animation this good.

    That and Nagi is totally awesome. She's so beautiful, elegant, and graceful. :3

    Yeah, this episode was great.

    Some people complain that the episode contained too much one hit KOs, but this doesn't battle me at all. In fact, it shows that flying pokemon are pokemon with weak defenses but good offensive strength and speed to make up for it, like in the games.

    Grovyle vs Altaria was the best for me, now who doesn't love to see Grovyle slash its leaf blades at an enemy about sixty feet in the air and smash them onto the ground for quick and effective KO?

    Great episode, I loved this gym battle. Grovyle took out Altaria, I was surprised since it also had a weakness to Altaria. Swellow was really good too, however, I was disappointed in Pikachu who lost to Pelipper. Pikachu had a 4x advantage over Pelipper. Overall, a great battle and episode. I give it 9/10.

    And good job for naming Winona's assistant Zachary, it's my name except people call me Zack.

    I know, I thought it was this week and woke up at 9:00am so I could see it at 10:00am but then it was just a rerun. Only one more week and BTW Grovyle is proven to be really fast in this battle. Goes to show people Ash is now specializing in spped instead of power...

    =O

    (note: that is the last time you'll see me using that!)

    Ah man, it was even more beautiful in person! Swellow vs. Swellow is indeed in the top tier for greatest battles. They even kept the 5th movie music! That MADE the battle.

    Teh Shiny Swellow!!!111!1

    I see Team Ota did the animation for this episode, everything was fluid and easy to watch. Everything right down to the eyelashes on May's eyes, Team Ota IS the best animation studio who do episodes.

    May was just so pretty in this episode, Winona too. I LOVE the way these guys draw women, they looked really sexy. :x

    Too bad these guys don't do every episode, Ash and May look much older in this animation style, and Winona had some pretty nice shots herself. Anyone notice the awesome camera angles? The bird and worm eyes view of the battle were great.

    One thing's for sure: they sure do love drawing Grovyle.

    Great Gym Battle, possibly the best so far in Hoenn. Grovyle was really great, I was surprised how it could match up against powerful flying types. I expected Pikachu to lose against Pelipper since Pikachu has so low defense. Pikachu did do good though, it's Thunderbolt was cool looking especially when TR was next to it when it was using Thunderbolt. Swellow VS Swellow was awesome as well, it reminds me of my Swellow in Emerald since it had Hyper Beam, the best move for a Swellow. It's STAB and is 150 power, what could be better? TR was funny with the Itemfinder. XD

    Overall I give it a 10/10

    One of the best episodes in a while. Ash was smart in this one. Using, the field to his advantage and letting Pelipper attack knowing it would unground itself.

    Then of course we got the dog fight with the full E4 theme.

    There's only one thing that spoiled this otherwise incredible episode. That's right, Team Rocket. They could have taking the episode off but one, they had to be idiots, running around in the catacombs and getting shocked by their metal devining rods.

    Well animated and well written.

    The Big Al's rating
    9.3/10
    TR came this one from a perfect 10.

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

    Some quotes.

    *TR blasts off*
    May: Was that a shooting star?
    Brock: ...whuh?

    Winona: Ash, on days that are so beautiful and clear like today, my flying Pokemon and I are able to manifest much greater power than we're able to in less perfect conditions. Those of us whose dreams reach towards the sky are loved by the sky in return.
    Ash: Wow, I didn't know the sky could love you.

    What I don't get is, shiny swellow uses hyper beams like crazy and regular swellow is hurt badly, it uses ONE wing attack and shiny swellow faints.

    easily one of the best gym battle in a long while... absolutely fierce... definately made up for the lackluster Norman battle...

    if Team Ota isn't able to do every episode, they should at least do all the important ones...

    I thought I read in the write up that Winona started with Pelliper in Japan, or was I on some good stuff? lol

    It was a great episode nevertheless.
