    I didn't like This episode. Showing Pokéathlon for the first time was good, but still.....I didn't like how the whole episode turned out. I found the COTD daniel boring. I liked how Ash was trying to show Daniel that raising Pokémon should be based on bond with the pokemon rather than using science technology to raising Pokémon, but I hated how Ash ended up losing the Pokéathlon at the end. He wasn't able to win the Pokéathlon, yet somehow Daniel learned a lesson about raising his pokemon.
    Daniel won the Pokéathlon by using Hi-Tech machine, which beats the whole 'moral purpose' of this episode.
    Also, I hated how Team Rocket made Staraptor faint by using their stupid 'Poking machine'. Geez, I hate it when Team Rocket hogs sceentime like this.

    I like the episode that the competition hosted by Nanakamado than this one. I am a marathon runner so I love the Pokémon triathlon competition. This Pokéthlon looks more like an athletics event rather than a real triathlon by the name it looks.

    I guess this episode goes into "average filler" catagory, even if COTD was kinda interesting. Kind of a usual Heart vs. machine story, and of course heart wins out as usual....

    I guess monferno was kinda cool, but the episode overall was just............zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    What, of course Im awake x_x

    The writers ruined Pokeathlons in the show. I didn't even get why this episode aired 4 months after HGSS since by that point why even showcase them 5/10

    Yay we got to see a Pokeathlon and I liked when Ash and Monferno competed in the disc catch round. Seeing Pikachu land on Snorlax's stomach was cute and I liked the hurdle dash competition too.

    The Pokeathlon competition here needed more excitement like in the HG/SS games. My favorite part was seeing another Snorlax, but Ash should've won.

    When we saw Kabigon, I was hit with nostalgia, and I was hoping that we'd see Satoshi make a reference to his own Kabigon, but nothing was said. I didn't expect to see Satoshi win here, but this was still a fun episode if only because of the Rocket-dan.

    One thing that kinda peeved me is that this episode was that Ash was trying to show the COTD that raising Pokemon should be based on bonds with the Pokemon rather than technology, yet the writers had Ash lose to the very thing that he was trying to disprove. :/
