That's obviously what Flameboyant guys do when they're talking to girls. It happens a lot, even to Harly. :P
Harley's first appearance was great, i loved how he poot May's picture in his notebook.
The battle between them was fine, not something big.

So the best contest rival, and creeper on the show is born. Harley had a good debut, showing his evil side with his hit-book and tape of embarrasing May stories. Good contest overall, but appeals could of been made better.
Best. Episode. Ever. Because Harley appeared in the anime for the first time.
The overall story would've put me to sleep had it not been for Hayley and his crazy antics.
Kinda glad Harley and Max bonded. 9/10
I think that Harley is one of the most awesome rivals ever. He had an great debut!
This episode was good. It was cool seeing Cacturne for the 1st time. Cacturne is very strong. Harley is 1 of the most annoying characters in the Hoenn Saga ever! His Cacturne outfit makes me laugh every time. I'm glad the reason May was so scared of Pokemon at 1st before starting her Journey with Ash was told by Max. I was wondering a very long time before that. I'm glad May defeated Harley in the contest to win her 4th ribbon.
Awesome episode, Harley is probably one of the best characters in the entire anime.
This episode is one of my favorite episodes from the Hoenn Saga, because May's most interesting rival Harley debuted in this episode. I liked how Harley started to hate May after she said his cookies aren't 'half bad' and his Cacturne is scary. Harley hate for May and their rivalry was one of the best parts of Hoenn saga in opinion. I enjoyed Harley's antics throughout the episodes, he was really evil(in a funny way). Also, the reason May was so scared of Pokemon before starting her Journey with Ash was finally revealed in this episode. Because of all those Tentacool May had didn't like Pokémon at first, that must have been very embrassing past for May. Harley pulled a 'blast from the past' trick on May, but Ash told her not to give up.....and she didn't give up. It's good that May got her 4th ribbon, but It's even better that she got a interesting(and a bit flameboyant) rival.
While I think Harley is a pretty interesting rival for May, I couldn't help but think "Not cool, dude!" when he revealed that secret from May's past like that.
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
I loved how Harley placed a photo of May in his little hit list-esque book; he was vindictive from the start and I loved it. Hayley's Cacturne's Bullet Seed appeal slayed and I laughed at Max's story about May and the Tentacool being recorded by Harley to sabotage May. Seeing Bulbasaur slay Cacturne was a surprise, but I was just glad that May won her fourth ribbon.
I have never disliked a character more than Harley.
Although, he is just what this show needs: A mean rival with an attitude.

Harley was great here with his Cacturne and tape recorder strategy when he was losing to May. Even tho his talk with Max about May's Tentacool fiasco was messed up, I liked how Harley used tricky methods. :3
Harley was an outrageous person but in a good way. His Cacturne was powerful and I like how Harley was crafty and would do anything to win a ribbon. 8/10
I didn't enjoy Harley when I saw him here because he seemed really prissy and plain rude + his Cacturne clothing made him look like a caricature.
Omg, Harley was so campy. And his Cacturne has such a great dub voice. I thought the story about Caroline trying to catch May because she thought she was a Tentacool was hilarious. I think Harley is such a jerk, but he's a great character.~
Harley was great and sneaky in this; it was hilarious yet infuriating how he got Max to tell a story about May and Tentacool and her fear of them.
I feel that May got a cheap win here though and won only because of plot armor.
I enjoyed meeting Harley, and I thought he was really funny. I loved his interesting comments he made toward May. The contest itself was really good. Although, I hated what Harley did to May, with that recording of Max and everything.
