I thought it was neat that we were able to see Tracey, Sakura, and her Espeon. I have always really liked Sakura as a character. I never really thought about how gym badges were made. Although, now I know how hard of a process it is. Although, I think the man was a bit harsh on them, but everything worked out in the end. I also really liked how they kept getting Psyduck to swim. It's too bad their attempts were unsuccessful. I was happy that the badge thieves were caught, and I thought Psyduck did a great job battling. I thought Sakura's Espeon was pretty strong when we were able to see it battle Misty's Corsola. It was sweet how Sakura and Misty exchanged the Cascade badges they made themselves as a friendship token.
