    I'd like to point out to all that the Swinub line is a pure-Ice type in the anime. Remember Pryce? I'm sure Dawn's Swinub has been affected too. It's either this or the writers realise that Electric types don't stand a chance with anime movesets. Would you have like Mamo to be immune? Cuz then P&M can't touch him. Would you have liked a Pryce battle with just Quick Attack and Aglity? Admit it, you wouldn't. These rules are because 1. Anime electric types fail against grounds and 2. Mamo is pure-Ice according to anime.

    Wrong. Mamoswine does does not get affected by electricity in the Grand Festival battle against Ursula.

    Yeah, and I swear Pachirisu used Discharge during the Grand Festival, and Mamoswine just stood there unaffected (Discharge hits everyone - it was a nice touch).

    This episode was pretty good, although I missed a bit of it in the beginning the animation looked pretty good. Nice comeback from Dawn as well, lucky she snapped out of the whole Dee-Dee thing with the hair.

    This episode was cool. It was great to see Dawn finally overcome her fears in this contest. Jessie's reaction when she lost was priceless! It was great to see Dawn finally win her 5th ribbon. Mamoswine and Cyndaquil did well, being able to take down Plusle and Minun in the final round. Unfortunately the Fire-Ice attack combo still wasn't perfected yet. The Encore move really made things difficult for Dawn, but she was able to overcome it. It was cool to see the Plus and Minus abilities shown. It was cool to see Mamoswine eat Ice Shard while surrounded by Swift, and then using Take Down attack.

    95/100

    Awesome episode, I love contests and I'm gonna miss them so much during BW. The battles were awesome, shame to see Jessie get knocked out so soon. Ursula and Dawn's battle was amazing, and Dawn's comeback was fabulous! Flame-Ice looked awesome, but to be honest I think the judges were way in Dawn's favour :P Awesome to see Dawn get her fifth ribbon, I can't wait until the Grand Festival now!
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    Ugh, encore, I hate that move. So useful if the last move you used is super-effective. So annoying if you try to use it on the opponent (at least for me). It was a good strategy for Ursula to use against Dawn, but causing Dawn to live up to her nickname was cruel. And Jessie lost again. At least things are looking sunnier for her later. At least Dawn qualified for the Ribbon Cup after this episode.

    This episode felt more action focused, compared the the more character focused last episode. I have always been a sucker for combining fire with another element, mainly lighting and ice, since they kinda form the RPG trio of elements.

    Ursula was a *****, putting it blankly, exploiting fears and bad memories, kinda makes Paul look like a nice dude in comparison. episode also reminded me just how much I love cyndaquil and mamoswine's deisgns.

    10/10, best contest episode Ive seen, makes me wonder what Ive missed
