First half of the episode was about Team Rocket, I know it's a tag battle but did Team Rocket need to fill up that much space in the time.
I'm surprised Dawn's Cyndaquil stood up to Totodile/Croconaw, say what you will about Kotone and Kazunari but Cyndaquil is newly hatched (a couple of episodes). It took an aqua tail and a hydro pump.
I'm a bit annoyed they played Cyndaquil as tough as Monferno or Monferno struggling equally with Cyndaquil.
But oh well, nice to see Monferno after awhile (even though we saw it in the Gible episode).
Monferno and Cyndaquil both beat Croconaw and Chikorita. Though, Cyndaquil's flame wheel was powered up by Monferno's flamethrower. But Monferno single handedly defeated Croconaw.
An interesting tidbit, I believe unless I saw the scene wrong (about the person not the event), I believe Kazunari's father gave Brock a Poke gear. Again Brock did receive a Pokegear but I'm a little uncertain about who gave it to him. It was either Kazunari or his father.
Yep that was it.
Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.
