    Well, Snover IS a gym leader's Pokemon. Gliscor was probably very close to beating Snover because then, just one Flamethrower from Chimchar KOed Snover.

    I'm glad it was not a two parter myself. I found the episode ok..but..not the best gym battle.


    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.

    Candice seemed to be a pretty soft Gym Leader. Most of her Pokémon were easily defeated rather quickly. I would've liked it if they let Candice use Froslass and some other Ice-type Pokémon in place of Snover and Medicham.

    The battle itself wasn't too thrilling. I found it better than Ash's battle against Crasher Wake but it really isn't that exciting when compared to Ash's battles against Fantina and Byron.

    Now that was both a relaxing and chilling episode to watch. Marvelous indeed.

    I thought it was cool too. Also isn't it odd how we are making puns after we recently watched the episode? I also love the visual effects in the backgrounds (e.g. Snover using Ice Shard or Powder Snow with that warm cool looking background with the glowing. I wanna know how the animators do that.)

    Man, Abomasnow pwn'd 3 of Ash's pokemon. :P I thought it was a great episode with the 7th gym battle.

    After we saw a familiar face at the end, Im really looking forward to the next episode now!

    This episode was awesome. It was cool to see Wood Hammer. I also like how Abomasnow is so strong that it didn’t even move from its spot after being called out. It was awesome how Chimchar skated on the ice and Abomasnow getting all frustrated over it. Ash’s gym battle was quite epic.

    Great episode. Abomasnow was awesome, smacking three of Ash's pokemon without even moving. Seeing Wood Hammer was one of my favorite parts, great look for the move.
    Snowboarding Chimchar was great too, and Grotle was good.

    This was my first episode in a while, so I'm glad it was a good one.

    well the battle was decent but not the best gym battle in sinoh.

    Chimchar Snowboarding remind me of Mario 64 koopa shellboarding.

Paul just barely shows up at the end of the episode, I guess Ash must've won his 7th badge first before him. Now I'll just to wait and see how Zoey will react to Paul's way of training.
    well we dont know how many week or months the se episodes were in production so it possible that Volkner have his Pt team which i hope he have.

    Good Episode , it felt kinda rushed but still the Gym battle was better than the Crasher Wake one XP. I noticed that even though Gliscor got beaten by snover there it still did some damage to it. Plus since Chimchar beat him with a single flamethrower it would mean that if Gliscor final Fire Fang would had hit I think Snover should have gone down XD . I still love how Candice showed her attitude in this episode 8D , Still love her voice . Abomasnow showed that it was really strong defeating 3/4 of the Pokemon Ash used in the match , Wood Hammer ( I think that what the attack name ) was cool to watch Grottle's Face when he was KO'ed was funny to see ROFL XD . And the Ice surfing part was cool to see :P it was kinda funny to see Abomasnow get mad when Chomchar was surfing around him XDDD. Paul appearing at the end so the plot for next episode to start was a nice touch there to end the episode.

    Good Episode Overall.

    good episode in my opinion, although final fight Chimchar vs Abomasnow wasnt that exciting. IT would have been better if they let chimchar use blaze and than pawn abomasnows Blizzard with an empowered Flamethrower

    Today's episode can be summarized as "great gym battle, great episode".

    YES FINALLY! It seems that the writers have finally got what I ( and I guess you too) want to see, namely an Ash who is absolutely dominat throughout the first two rounds and proves that he can be a good trainer even without DEM help of any kind.
    Writers, will you now pleeeease get that straight in your heads? Repeat exactly this kind of superior battling style in all the upcoming battles (+ give Ash a Gible, and let Cynthia be the invincible Champion forever) and I'll be the happiest Pokemonfan in the whole world!
    You may now object that it would probably be boring and predictable if Ash dominated the action every time and won every badge with ease. No, it wouldn't, firstly because we clearly saw today that Ash still had difficulties and had to struggle hard to finally earn the badge and secondly, even if we watched battles of skilled and experienced trainers that wouldn't automatically mean that they have to be dull. On the contrary, the best trainers also put up the most impressive fights.
    But after today's battle, I'm quite optimistic when it comes to Ash's future...hopefully the Anime won't prove me wrong (apart from Ash vs. Paul of course).

    Well, what else is on my list of noteworthy events? yeah, of course! Gliscor failed!!! Serves him right. The highly praised Gliscor couldn't even take out Snover (I know, I know 4x type disadvantage...) I want to apologize to all Gliscor fans, but given the fact that I still can't get to like that flying scorpion, I just can't help gloating over his, say, subpar performance today arty: Thank God, Ash has other and, above all, competent Pokemon!

    Talking of competent Pokemon, this leads me to today's star, Chimchar! I was really delighted by his performance today. Although I didn't like that his Flamethrower was too weak against Aboma(Obama?-)snow, I did find it impressive how he showed some spunk and made the best of the difficult situation. Definitely the two higlights were Chimchar's ultra cool expression on his face after it had sensed Snover and ,of course, Chimchar skating on that ice shard. Hey, you've got to admit that he was really good at it! The final, powerful Flamewheel was the icing (no pun intended ) on the cake!

    And then we got the mysterious Paul again. I haven't watched the upcoming episodes yet, but judging from what I was told, these are bound to be great. I do hope that Paul's appearance will herald some of the best Sinnoh episodes ever ( of course after the episodes with Queen Cynthia)


    All in all an awesome and exciting episode!

    I doubt it. Rotom's Platinum forms appeared about 20 episodes ago and Ash and Dawn are wearing their Platinum clothes in the Snowpoint City arc. The writers are well aware of Candice's Platinum team. I'd be willing to bet that not only do the writers know Pokemon Platinum inside and out but they knew every last detail of the game before the game was even announced to the general public. It's their job to know this stuff so Nintendo wouldn't benefit by not letting them in on any "secrets".


    Besides, in AG Juan was the gym leader instead of Wallace just like in Emerald but he still used Wallace's team from Ruby/Sapphire

    I enjoyed this episode. The ice skating with Sneasel AND Chimchar was cool. This was a very good gym battle episode.

    Just watched this episode. It was good, but it felt it was rushed. Too bad that Gliscor didn't earn a win, though. Chimchar skating around was funny.

    And now there comes Paul. Wonder what might be next...

    Like I said when this aired in Japan, this should have been two parts long. It was too rushed for my liking.

    Duh, that's why he's challenging Candice to a battle.

    Good battle, but it was too rushed (except for Abomasnow vs Chimchar), I felt. Shame Gliscor didn't pull off a victory. :|
    I loved the battle music in this battle.
    Can't wait for the next episode.

    I thought that the gym battle was alright. I was expecting more from Candice. Maybe she should just stick w/ teaching instead of running a gym. Anyway, I can't to see how Shinji's battle is going to be.

    The first 3 battles went too fast. The whole thing with Abomasnow was predictable, with Ash pulling something out of his *** for a win. I thought the Grotle and Staraptor wins were more impressive to watch. I didn't know WTF Ash was thinking bringing Gliscor out against an Ice leader. Pikachu seemed like it was begging Ash to fight. Though, it was funny seeing Gliscor fighting Snover with its 4x Ice weakness, and then using Fire Fang for its 4x Fire weakness.

    I noticed a lack of consistency on the ice field, what with the lack of sliding. On other ice fields, they've had to contend with Ash's Pokemon sliding around the field, but here it was a non-issue. I would've appreciated Chimchar slipping and falling or something.

    Candice's voice is so awesome. Haha. She was fun to listen to.

    Dub episode was pretty good. I mainly watched it because I wanted to compare Shinji with Paul (I know, like...2 sentences at the end). He's much more of a jerk in the dub, whereas in the raw he seems to be a bit more..I dunno, just keeps to himself?

    Really enjoyed the gym battle. Grotle taking those relatively weak hits makes sense, and seeing Rock Climb in action was awesome. Also, any time we get to see Brave Bird AND Close Combat in the same episode is also awesome.

    if pikachu was begging to fight it would have been louder than that.

    Ash scored his first 2 K.O.-s in the fashion of a skilled trainer, but he began blowing it up afterwards. Old empty-headed Ash. Urgh, why didn't TR dig a hole in the floor of the room they barricaded themselves in, like they dug a hole to get inside the Pokemon storage? The writers should let them steal some Pokemon, really...
