    I can't say that I'm surprised Dawn lost the battle. It just didn't seem like she was ready to beat her mother in a battle. But hopefully someday she will beat Johanna in an official battle.
    Anyway, the episode was pretty good, Bellossom was cool to see.

    As I've seen pointed out, the outfit Ash was wearing in the flashback was the same he wore in Movie 3. Some pretty good continuity. Cue speculation that the Gene Eric in the flashback was Ash's daddy. :0

    And hey, Barboach!

    What a surprise. Dawn lost, and used Piplup and Pachirisu. You can see this stuff a mile away.

    I have to admit - I thought there would be more to the battle than we saw in the preview.

    And I agree, Bellossom was fantastic! Having the same Groagunk attitude.

    But, yes, who were the two old people, why were TR just fishing, and who was the other girl in Joanna's house?

    It's not assist, because all attacks that Joanna ordered, were given simultainly to both pokemon

    If Dawn had won I would not have been very happy

    I haven't watched yet, but is TR fishing a sign that there's a new water pokemon headed their way? We know water pokemon appear next episode

    Haha I know! They caught some pretty good ones too! I can't believe they didn't catch them and try to send them to the boss. Couple of johto pokemon in this episode too...ledyba, heracross, umbreon, bellossom, and sunflora. Nice to see them again

    I liked this episode. ^^ We got to see Ash's mom via video phone, along with Prof. Oak. Dawn battled her mom and lost (not surprisingly), and we got to see a threatening Bellossom. xD It was a great ep, I'm surprised Brock tried to hit on that woman so many times. O.o

    (I couldn't think of anywhere to put this so sorry if its in wrong spot. )

    The main group is in the first town again right did it mention they were going back there in the previous few episodes or they randomly showed up? I also have another question did they walk there or take some means of transportation?

    On topic i just read thru the first few posts sounds like a pretty decent episode did oak call ash or the other way around Im surprised non of his johto pokemon didn't show up like totildile seeing as the other two starters are appearing in a few episodes.
    50% of Serebii users are relapsing pokemon fans...if you are among those that never got off the band wagon...copy and paste this in your sig (started by CyberBlastoise)...

    -Look, it's Johanna's house! Quick, find an old Pallette Town episode so we can see if they just reused the design from Deliah's house!
    -Judging by their reaction to Piplup, Glameow and Umbreon obviously post on SPPf.
    -Hey look, it's GSC Remake Advertising Character of the Day!
    -Dawn has a whole four ribbons! I'm sure everyone is impressed. Brock sure is, given how he literally shoves her aside to hit on GSCRACOTD.
    -It's been 5 seconds of this and it doesn't look like it's stopping! Where's Croagunk?!
    -Oh, there it is. And Bellossum gets some bonus points by stun sporing Brock at the same time Croagunk stabs him. It's funny because it involves someone experiencing pain.
    -So many trophies and pictures of Johanna's career prominently displayed...obviously a cry for help, a cry to be saved from the dreary life of a housewife that fills her time now. Either that or Johanna loves massaging her ego all day. "Oh yes, I won ALL of those trophies! Hell yes, I'm awesome! I'm the BEST! Look at me, I'm so gorgeous in these photos! I'm the greatest, most talented, most BRILLIANT person alive!" Now imagine her thoughts being like that all day, and...
    -Meanwhile. Team Rocket is fishing. And they're in disguise despite partaking in a legal activity.
    -Oh wait, that guy who yelled at them looked vaguely boss-ish. I guess they've been hired to fish for...something. Probably something specific, given the "omg they released tons of pokemon they lured in!" complaints I'm seeing.
    -Johanna's a good cook. Shocking! Brock still makes awesome Pokemon food! A pathetic reminder that he technically still has a goal of becoming a great Pokemon breeder!
    -Washing dishes by HAND? You'd think that with all the gadgets and advanced technoglogy we've seen in the Pokemon world, people would at least have dishwashers in their houses.
    -Seriously, Johanna has a fancy flatscreen videophone thing, but she doesn't have a dishwasher. What the hell, woman?
    -Once again, the anime expects us to give a shit about Oak's Pokemon senryu. Once again, I don't give a shit.
    -HEY REMEMBER *ASH'S* MOM? REMEMBER THE LAST TIME SHE DID ANYTHING? NEITHER DO I!
    -I bet Johanna just loves having Brock do the gardening for free!
    -Don't ask me what's up with Johanna's "neighbors", because I don't know.
    -Blah blah little boy in the woods blah blah WHOA ASH FLASHBACK
    -Cue 8 million theories about how the brown-haired man in the flashback is Ash's dad
    -Dawn is doing some military planning for her upcoming battle, but Pachirisu(it exists?!) wanders off and points out...a little frame above the TV with pictures of Dawn doing contesty stuff(mostly ribbons, one pic has her standing next to Walalce). I bet Dawn will be so happy about the space she's getting compared to the three shelves of stuff Johanna put up about herself.
    -I'm starting to like this Bellossum. Anything that starts glowing black when Brock hits on girls too much is ok with me! (of course, Croagunk's doing that too...)
    -Glameow&Umbreon defy the laws of physics to get past Dawn's opening Brine+Discharge(or thundershock or something. Look man, don't judge me, all electric attacks look exactly the same, okay?!) combo.
    -*skips over 3 minutes of predictable battle*
    -DAWN LOST WOW I NEVER EXPECTED THIS
    -Dawn's happy anyway. Because her mom is awesome, I guess?
