    This episode was excellent. Seeing Gliscor at the beggining was great. It was also great to see that Paul's Lairon evolved. It was also cool to find out that he owns a Gastrodon. It was great to see Infernape get the first win. It looks like Ash has the upper-hand since he has knocked out 2 of Paul's Pokemon without losing one. It was surprising to see Drapion extend it's tail to trap Buizel.

    Ash vs. Paul part one. At least their league battle started off better than their previous battle. It was also great seeing Gliscor again.

    Absolutely excellent episode! Full of action, couldn't take my eyes off it. Great to see Infernape get a quick win in, I bet Paul's regretting giving it up. Interesting to hear Reggie say that Paul losing the first two Pokémon is all part of his strategy. I'm intrigued to know what his real strategy is. Very excited to see the end of this battle.
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    This was a great start of Ash and Paul's epic six on six league battle, I guess Paul's Lairon evolved into Aggron off-screen.

    Ash training with his Pokemon at the beginning was nice, it looked like he's making his strategies for the battle. I found it weird when Dawn was talking to Paul, but as soon as she saw Ash, she moved to his side.

    The battle between Ash's Infernape and Paul's Aggron was awsome, I glad it infilcted a burn on Aggron and defeated it. The battle between Staraptor and Gastrodon didn't go well for Staraptor, Paul copyed Ash counter shield and used it against him. Staraptor was struggling badly in the battle, so Ash returned it and choose Buizel. Buizel took good advantage of Gastrodon's Ice Beam and used it as Ice Aqua Jet and took down Gastrodon. After Gastrodon is defeated, Paul sent out his new Drapion, who can cause trouble for Ash's team. The episode ended with a major cliffhanger.

    Loved this episode. Great character development, good battle, the opening scene was also really good.

    We got some great character interactions in her too (Paul and Ash, Paul and Dawn, Paul and Reggie, Paul and everyone)

    I rate this 8.5/10

    This was a great start to my Favorite battle in the anime. I also loved the interaction between Paul and Dawn it was nice seeing him kind of opening up to Dawn.

    Finally, the last Ash vs Paul battle. I was surprised that Paul owned a Gastrodon and Drapion and even more shocked that Paul copied Ash's counter shield although Ash held his own well here, which was cool.

    Shinji using Pokemon like Bossgodora and Toritodon for this decisive match was a slight surprise to me, because I was thinking that Shinji would stick with his most experienced battlers instead. I thought that Satoshi having to resort to his secret weapon Goukazaru so early in the battle was a bad sign.

    I was very pleased with this episode. I was happy with some of the techniques Paul used and I'm also very thrilled to see his expressions: he's remaining cool and collected, even though he's at the disadvantage.

    Wow nice episode . I liked the moment with dawn and paul. Paul 's smiling was cute. Paul has interacted with dawn. This episode was epic though.

    Shinji talking with Hikari here was indeed nice, although their interaction didn't exactly change much between them, which is a shame. They were my two favorite Shinou characters.

    The Dawn/Paul moment was good, but as some people already mentioned, this episode was a bit rushed. It would have been best if more time were put into the time before the match. There was so much potential in this episode, but it just fell a bit short for me.

    The first act of the greatest battle in Pokémon history! By the way could someone possibly please tell me what's the name of the background music when Infernape is battling Aggron (in the japenease version) or at least where I can find that information?

    Gastrodon's Counter Shield is the only thing worth commenting about as well as Buizel winning a battle. The animation was pretty good too.
