    This was a cute episode, with all the nice interactions between Ralts and Max!
    I liked the fact that Snorunt followed Max around in his journey to the Pokemon center and Max has quite the stamina to run all-day long XD
    Now, I'd really like to see Max returning to the show with a Gardevoir/Gallade on his side~ (Which probably won't happen since the writers probably forgot about him..)

    Yeah, Korean education sucks.

    Nice one, Max's bond with Ralts was really deep, kinda sad that it left in the end. And nice one that Snorunt followed Max and Ralts around and I also liked Jessie's Gardevoir costume too. And I didn't expect Ash and friends to know TR from their disguises, which was partially helped by the Pokédex. James's line when he blasted off was nice, too.

    I'm glad Max got this episode to himself and that he took care of Ralts. The ending was sad and I wish he had kept Ralts, but I was impressed by Max's maturity as well as how strong Team rocket was here. ^^

    TR seemed competent for once lol. I didn't want Max to keep Ralts anyway, so I was totally fine with them going their own separate ways.

    Well I suppose Max was still too young to get his first pokemon any ways, but this Ralts was the closest he ever came to getting his own pokemon, so it seemed unfortunate that it didn't happen. ^^;

    This episode was almost perfect & by the end I just wanted Max to keep Ralts since they had bonded so well. I hope he will go back for it some day. 8/10

    A more somber episode for Max that makes it a bit of a shame they didn't try more of this direction with him and his future as a trainer (Bonnie in XY seemed to be an apology for this). Loved his contained fury at the end though.

    TR's planning was hilariously incompetent (not even the twerps will fall for the same disguise TWICE in one day), but they made up for it with one of their most intense battles in the show (surprisingly at probably their lowest point). Every Pokemon in the team shows their worth. They REALLY wanted Ralts apparently. Really makes me wish they'd tried more non-curbstomp battles with the Hoenn TR lot.

    Er, it's not like she's any closer to becoming a trainer than Max is.

    Max helping rescue Ralts from Team Rocket was the best scene + Team Rocket put up such a good fight against Ash's friends.

    What I mean is she got 'reserved' Pokemon to keep and take care of from her brother, but she at least got token battles and signs of trainer competence, if admittedly still in a fairly sparse and fetal state.

    I think The Tiny Caretaker for example did a better job demonstrating the character's potential to take care of a Pokemon, even if both episodes suffered the problem of them ultimately being saved by a miraculous intervention than them really proving their worth, Bonnie at least held off Team Rocket a lot longer on her own than Max did.

    I think Max has got to be a bit psychic. He was the only one who could hear Ralts calling for help. The Team Rocket battle scene was awesome. Jessie actually used her Dustox and actually had Wobbuffet use an attack.

    You forgot James actually remembering his Chimecho could magically heal them all mid battle. :P

    Only thing missing was Meowth getting in a Fury Swipes or using a gadget of some sort.

    Yeah Meowth seemed strangely passive during the battle and it seemed unlike him to not use a mecha since those are his specialty.

    Lol, I loved how good TR was here when they fought Ash's crew, though this begs the question: How did TR suddenly get so good? Usually they sucked at battling.

    It is a shame, because their Hoenn lot was arguably one of their best selection, as demonstrated in this one battle particularly. It's another reason the writers just persisting in TR curb stomps all the time gets on my nerves. Wouldn't more of moments like this be like....way, WAY more entertaining?

    I was amazed that Masato heard the sick Ralts from such a distance, and I liked seeing him feed Ralts. Yukiwarashi freezing Masato's glasses was humorous too, yet he proved his power while fighting the Rocket-dan. Musashi and Nyasu dressed up as Sirnight and Kirlia was my favorite moment, and Ralts's farewell scene was stunning.

    This was an amazing episode. Team Rocket were on point and fought really well. It was great to see Max caring for Ralts but it was so sad when they went their separate ways. I hope to see Max return one day and get it.

    Caterpie is so cute, so pretty, flipping feathers from Pikachu and styles of Ho-Oh into the melody of time and the shifting of the soft sands on a summerset with Bill at the Lighthouse, where Dragonite's voice code signal call, and the blinking tower of a higher future come to Molly, the end of fantasy, so destiny at the lighthouse makes you stronger. Caterpie is kinda like a mini Rayquaza to me, stretches out, gets bigger. Turning into Butterfree, and falling in love with that pink one later is sort of sad.
    All fear the raging Typhlosion... ROAR - unleashed from the deepest depths of chaos and the ultimate sea of freedom, a time of untold legends and deep labyrinths of Frenzy and Lightning, the split from peace and the sanctuary of fulfillment reveal this one divine wish... THE LIGHTNING!!!
    Will we make it through victory road? If so, then our last task towards freedom would be to checkmate the dark-sided King at the Game's highest stage for the win! Happiness isn't perfect until it's shared, so let love lay the foundation and point the way!

    The Rocket-dan trio were pretty amazing for once in this episode, which I remember thinking would become a permanent change during the end of the Houen saga. Sadly, it only lasted for this one Ralts episode.

    I think the trick here was also that the twerps were on par most of the time as well. They saw through TR's disguises and bounced off some of their silliness (Ash being savvy enough to use his Pokedex against a disguise was an awesome moment, and Max doesn't just notice them in the same disguise a second time round, he is hilariously ENRAGED they think he's that dumb) and when TR put up a rare proper fight, they actually fought back well rather than relying on dumb luck for once, making it a nicely developed hero vs villain face-off.

    Though there was a downplay during the middle where TR are literally thrown out of the picture when the more earnest bits with Ralts and it's brethren begin (wish it wasn't so obvious when the writers decided they had 'served their purpose' in so many episodes), and for some reason the twerps are just CASUALLY WALKING instead of trying desperately to catch up with Max before the TRio did (seriously what the hell, May?). I'd have loved if the second half of this episode had TR still going strong and the twerps desperately trying to keep them from reaching Max in one big episode long face-off of the TRio in 'Not so harmless' mode like 'The Stolen Stones', though I know they couldn't logically do that without harmfully downplaying the screen time and depth of Max and Ralt's side of the story.
