    Nibi Gym - The Greatest Crisis Ever!

    Good Points:
    • Takeshi's pictures with his past traveling companions, gotta love that.

    • Jiro and Joi's battle was actually pretty good, Jiro is a beast to almost beat a Latias. Not to mention it scored several direct hits against Latias and he used Megahorn due to the super-effective power of it. The fact he managed to cause more damage and his attacks were more effective than Pikachu's against Latios, coupled with the fact he's one of the few characters in this series who can go toe to toe with a Legendary makes me view him as one of the stronger Kanto leaders.

    • I guess Takeshi's parents were good, tbh, I don't really care about solely comedic actions.

    • Takeshi's Paradise and the animation were just beautiful ;__;

    • Usokkie VS. Lucky, sure it was comedy. It was refreshing to see a move like Minimize and Mero-mero not being overpowered. I definitely think the battle should have been much longer, DoubleSlap really ate away that much of Usokkie's health for Takeshi to say that ._. and Flail looked very pathetic compared to when it was used against Muskippa when it evolved? ._. It's one of my favorites of the DP Pokemon so it kinda sucked it went down so easily to Egg Bomb and DoubleSlap.

    • The siblings managed to be entertaining especially when they connected Usokkie's infatuation to Takeshi's own behavior.


    Bad Points:
    • More Gureggru and Lucky please, especially the latter given I feel she was an integral part in Takeshi choosing to be a Pokemon Doctor.



    *Even though we've seen the "Nibi Gym in peril." plot before, I was pretty engrossed with Takeshi's Special from start to finish. I think him not doing relatively anything in DP for the later half makes you appreciate him more in this episode.

    Overall, neither Takeshi nor Hikari are terribly interesting enough to carry a Special on their own, at least in Hikari's case. But overall I'd say the Takeshi Special was great and the Hikari one was average.

    Unexpected Joy san become an inspector and she actually owns a Latias! Takeshi's parents are quite irresponsible in my opinion because they think of setting up another business if the gym really shut down rather than trying to save the gym. Fortunately Nibi gym can still continue to run.

    Joy owning a Latias was such a troll move as if Tobias owning Latios wasn't enough. Forrest still did well with Rhyperior though so I was proud of his skills. 7/10

    I liked how Brock kept photos of his friends, plus I liked when nurse Joy's Chansey slapped Brock's Sudowoodo ha ha. I was glad to see the gym back to normal as well and nurse Joy owning a Latias shocked me.

    Actually, we had seen Joy inspect Gyms in the past, so her role here wasn't such a surprise. Why she owned a Latias is another story though. It seemed like overkill...

    I liked the family dynamics with Brock's entire family, it really brings home the importance of the Pewter Gym. I liked that Brock battled Nurse Joy, but he went and lost way too easily. Forrest's battle against Nurse Joy was actually far more enjoyable, even if his Rhyperior still lost to Joy's Latias.

    I'll give him credit for actually using his own Pokemon for once instead of stealing Brock's Steelix, but him versus Joy was still meh. :/

    Yea we once had a nurse Joy inspect Misty's gym in a different special episode, although I don't think the nurse Joy here was the same one. As for why she had a Latios, I guess it was to give Forrest and his Rhyperior a huge challenge. ^^;

    I didn't mind that the Pewter Gym was fixed and looked the way it did in season one, but you'd think that Brock's mom would've been upset by the change since she was the one who made it all colorful. Also, Nurse Joy's Latias was OP as heck. Poor Forrest.
