    I loved this episode as well. Ash and Paul have their 1st full battle and Paul seems to have a better strategy than Ash so far. The battle gets interesting and Paul's substitutions were timed nicely. 10/10.

    I was surprised that Ash and Paul's full battle here had its own referee as well as a scoreboard. Anyway, I thought it was ominous that neither Gliscor or Staraptor were able to beat Paul's Torterra, although I liked that his Weavile lost against Staraptor. Paul using Electabuzz's Light Screen strategy and Honchkrow to beat Grotle was impressive.

    Paul's Weavile failed epicly, which made me laugh lmao. Torterra was a beast as expected and Electabuzz was smart.

    Paul's Torterra can take hits for days.

    Huh I expected Lake Acuity to be frozen like we had seen in flashbacks before. Ash vs Paul was intense however, although I was glad to see Staraptor defeat Weavile as well as seeing Light Screen used.

    My favorite moment was how we saw Team Rocket working the scoreboard and I thought that Paul's clever tactics outdid Ash's strategies.

    One thing that interested me was when Reggie asked whether or not Ash thought about switching Pokemon for the battle. Also, Paul's battle style seemed to be different somehow.

    Now I realize that if Ash goes into the battle overconfident and not on his game, he WILL lose. As for the battle itself; not a bad start. Actually knowing what Reggie, Dawn and Brock were talking about made it more interesting to watch than when I watched it raw.

    Eh, he wasn't even that overconfident here. I mean yes, he wanted to win against Paul, but Ash was mainly just psyched to battle him again.

    I dunno why Team Rocket even bothered helping out cuz they didn't even do it to steal Pikachu or anything. I guess that the writing staff simply wanted them to appear here and them running the scoreboard was the only valid excuse hee hee.

    Running the scoreboard and preparing the battlefield here was their job apparently. I think this was one of those rare times that we saw their side jobs lol.

    O yea I remember now that Team Rocket have secondary jobs that we usually never see, so I guess them working on the scoreboard was one of them. I just assumed that they had volunteered to help the referee as part of one of their plans.

    They would've been dumb to even try to steal any Pokemon here anyway since Paul was around and his Pokemon could solo TR and stop them in seconds.

    That's true hee hee. Paul had his best Pokemon including Weavile, Electabuzz and Torterra with him for this six on six battle and I'm sure he would've been really annoyed if Team Rocket had interrupted him battle with Ash.

    Eh, I wouldn't consider his Weavile to be that great since, as we saw, Ash's Staraptor made quick work of Weavile. Like, it was odd how fast Weavile went down given Paul's strength...

    I thought that Weavile managed to seem strong since it was speedy and damaged Staraptor with Metal Claw and Blizzard. Him losing was good tho cuz it showed us that Paul's team wasn't invincible and that Ash had improved as well. ^^

    But then Ash's Grotle got knocked out by Honchkrow right after lol. So I have my doubts that Ash had improved that much by this point.
