The last episode I saw of Pokemon for a long time. I remember looking forward to the next week and wondering "why isn't there another episode?!" I didn't see any more of Hoenn after that. One day I'll be going back to it and rewatch the entire thing through once it finishes, whenever that will be.
I loved how this season ended with an obvious sign of good things to come.

Eh, it was a boring episode. The characters weren't that interesting and the animation was bad. The idea of focusing on how to become a judge was pretty cool but it sucks that they didn't focus on it all that much.

The last episode of Advanced Challenge and it was a pretty good one (even thought it is a filler episode) I liked how they tackled the whole judge aspect of Pokémon battling and hearing Jimmy's back story which is filled with luck and coincidence.

It was neat to see an episode that shows how to become a battle referee.
I was kind of hoping Charmeleon and Ivysaur were going to evolve along with Wartortle.

It was good to see all three second stage Kanto starters to finish the season off. Onto Advanced Battle!

I hadn't given much thought to pokemon referees before this episode, so it was cool to see the Cotd train for that job. I also liked seeing a Charmeleon and Ivysaur again as well as a shiny Magikarp. :3

I didn't care for the ref dude's struggles, but I liked 4Kids' sandwich edit if only because it made some dub haters mad.

I liked the battle between Brock and Ash.Jimmy was really lucky. I didn't like the references made to Cerulean Gym because I don't like Misty but that's personal
anyway.I was happy to see the Magikarp submarine again.So here we come to an end of Advanced challenge and move on to Advanced battle! ^^

The Kanto Starter ref dude finding a golden Magikarp was the only scene here that caught my interest. 5.5/10

I didn't mind their riceball edit much myself, but since they had no problems with riceballs in the past minus calling them donuts sometimes, the edit seemed pretty random here. ^^;

Me too. After all, it's not like the middle stages of Kanto's beginner Pokemon are that great on their own.

Well, I really liked this episode. Jimmy...geez, how is it I've never heard of this character until today? So he's like...a drifter who just goes on luck? I so hope he's going back to Kanto because Ash needs to run into him again.
