This episode was okay, but they should've made the two-parter an arc. --;

The episode was good in general, and 4kids actually managed to keep Archie insane like in the original. LOL But here are the my two cents:

  • It should've been more like in the games, where the Red Orb actually corrupts Kyogre and Archie loses control of it.
  • The episode should've took after Satoshi-tachi gets the Mossdeep badge, that would've been, a great chance to take the gang to Sootopolis with something to do there, other than beating the Gym Leader and leaving.
--;

Although all of that, this was still a pretty good episode, I give it a 6/10.
