    Okay, screw Deus Ex Machina wins, Movie 6 [oh snapzors I meant 5th] Music FOR THE ULTIMATE WIN.

    A much more satisfying episode, once you see it in person.

    XD, TR's opera was hilarious. Best part of the epi, IMO.

    Ash won way too quickly, IMO. He only tried two or three combos and then beat them. If TR hadn't shown up(taboo subject ._.), then we'd would've had a nice long battle with the two sides formulating new strategies. Oh well.

    The animation was really good in this episode, I thought.

    The win seemed rather cheap to me. I understand how the thunder helped them win the battle, but I don't know how they absorbed the thunder in the first place. Just unrealistic to me.

    LOL Pikaponed. I always wondered where that picture of it blasted into the rock came from XD

    TR actually did quite well in this episode, which I liked. I do wish they'd saved it for a different episode, though, because this episode definitely needed more focus on the battle itself.

    Overall rating:
    7.8 out of 10
    Decent, but when it's an all-important Gym Battle, decent just doesn't cut it, I'm afraid.

    Here's my review of "Solid as a Solrock!"...these are mental notes of mine I kept while I watched:

    --Here we go!
    --Oh, I'm unbeatable!
    --I can do without the "Newvember' jingle, thanks...
    --'Bout time...
    --The arena looks beautiful!
    --Liza reminds me of Sailor Moon, and Tate of Sonic!
    --Now Ash knows how I feel...
    --Heads up, Pikachu!
    --Pika-pancake!
    --Meanwhile, with Team Rocket...
    --Chibi Giovanni's cute...
    --Team Rocket can't sing...
    --There's no way I'll remember the mecha's name!
    --Hurry, Ash!
    --Good going, Ash!
    --See ya, Team Rocket!
    --Trainer's Choice time...Not a pure Fighting type? Blaziken, since it's part Fire.
    --Can we please stop the Newvember jingle???
    --Yeah, I was right! Blaziken sounds weird...
    --Go Ash! ::waves flag::
    --Golden Pikachu and Swellow! Neat!
    --Kickin' butt!
    --Yay! Ash won!
    --Yeah, I got the Mind Badge!
    --The end...can't wait for next week!

    OK... that was weird.

    The Good:
    • TR's motto was the best motto variation in a while. Hit the high note, James!
    • Meowth fantasy also had its musical upbringings.
    • Trainer's choice seems to be on a winning streak. (Question: Which Pokémon is not pure Fighting: Mahkuhita, Machamp, or Blaziken? TC's answer: Blaziken.)
    • Yay Double Battle!
    • ASH is paralized! He may not be able to hug his POKéMON!


    The Bad:
    • Almost half the episode was wasted on beating TR.
    • It never explianed HOW Swellow & Pikachu could absorb Thunder to become even more uber.

    It was an awesome gym battle, one of my favorites in Hoenn. Swellow and Pikachu worked together great, and so did Solrock and Lunatone.

    5/5

    IMO, this episode was pretty good. The part with Pikachu and Swellow turning gold was awesome! Just a little question, but couldn't Ash's Swellow use Steel Wing against Lunatone+Solrock? Afterall, any pokemon with wings could know steel wing.

    Maybe because it doesn't know Steel Wing? -_-

    I've said it before and I will say it again, I'm not a big fan of gym battles (not for the last few years atleast). But this is another acception! I actually liked this episode and I liked seeing another gym battle being a double battle. It was worth sitting through Coconut Fred singing "NEWvember" over and over *wants to throw the TV out the window*

    Speaking of singing, I was happy to hear Jessie and James singing in this episode. And more importantly, their singing voices don't suck. Not like Brock in Lights Camerupt Action!

    Everything about this episode screamed AG quality. Excellent animation, great battle scenes, and even TR was funny this time around!

    The Giovanni daydream this time was hilarious, and TR's giant robot was actually a real threat for once. TR also had a lot of funny dialouge in this episode, Jessie/James singing, Meowth's extra long name for the robot, and Jessie's "You are so fired!" to Meowth.

    I really liked those planets in the Gym, very surreal. This is why I love AG Ash, he thinks of much better strategies than he ever did back in the old series.

    Swellow is definitely a tank, able to resist multiple Ice and Solarbeams and even Thunder! The Pikachu/Swellow powerup with electric armor was definitely not a cop out like some people were whining when this episode aired in Japan, it was a very cool twist and something that is entirely plausible.

    Great animation, excellent battles scenes, Team Rocket actually being funny, great strategy from Ash (Loved how he said, "This 7th badge is mine!" in a mature voice), and even the Traincers Choice was very good in this episode.

    One of the best Gym battles of Hoenn.

    It's not really cheating. Ash didn't use some outside force to win the battle.

    He simply used nature to give protective armor to Swellow and Pikachu.

    In the anime you're allowed to use ANYTHING in the battle field to your advantage. Ash simply use electricity. There is no difference.

    Wrong. The UK are past that. We got the Claydol eppy last.

    BTW, what were the planets for again?

Because of the electricity flowing with the attacks, it had a more harmful effect on Lunatone and Solrock.

    Think of it like this. You take an iron rod and beat a piece of wood with it. Then heat up the rod with fire then hit the wood again. It's gonna be more destructive against the wood cause not only is it hitting the wood, but also burning it. Same case can be said here only replace fire with electricity. >_>

    Thank you for explaining it better! God knows Brock didn't come through this time around...

    Its a great strategy, I'll give Ash that. But I can't help but kinda agree with those who said its cheap. I guess its a good thing the writers decided to give Swellow an insanely high Special Defense and Hit Points. lol

    Watched the whole ep now.

    O.M.G.

    Golden Pika/Swellow attacking,was badass.

    And the music was great! (especially during the Golden Swellow part)

    And 4kids got Trainer's choice right =O

    Just saying, I'm surprised that 4Kids let Emovanni into the fantasy. Seems rather pessimistic, and prime material for one of 4Kids' stupid, unnecessary edits. Oh well, pleasant surprise there.

    This episode was great until this message popped up on my TV:

    "A MANDATORY STATION TEST IS IN EFFECT FROM 9:20 AM UNTIL 9:40 AM. PLEASE TURN TO CHANNEL 8 FOR DETAILS"
    *flips to Channel 8*
    *gets same message*

    Ya know, you could have at least apologized for any inconvenience, *******s. I saw up to the part where Swellow got supercharged, and dang, that thing can take a lot of abuse. TR's mecha wasn't half-assed this time, either, although the battle interruption brought back my one detested aspect about Kanto.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Coconut Fred was the main reason they invented the MUTE button...

    Back on topic: With Team Rocket singing and all, I was halfway expecting them to sing the motto to the tune of "Largo al Factorum"...

    Totally agreed. That was so annoying. Anyway...

    ...And THAT'S why you don't buy mechas off the Internet! XD This was a pretty good episode. Nothing extra-special, though. Why do Team Rocket have to interupt gym battles! -_-;; It's really pointless.

    For some reason, the Pika&Swellow thing had me thinking Super Sonic. 0_o

    Hey FlamingRuby, I've tried the mental notes thing for the reviews, I've just never actually posted them. (I write comments on Post-Its)

    And has anyone else noticed that the Mind Badge looks a lot like the Soul Badge?
