But I'm actually glad that N interfered with the battle since there wasn't really a point to it anyway; I'm pretty sure it's been confirmed that Charizard and Dragonite will become friends anyway, so their rivalry is quite irrelevant imo. As always, Prince N steps in to protect Pokemon. What a sweetie.

Great episode! I gope other mons get to come back.
Well no pokemon is perfect, and I am glad other people, like yourself acknowledge that. Not you, but I think a lot of people forget to realize that Dusclops did not have an evolution at the time this episode was made. Also, this is BRANDON's dusclops, not some random one. Charizard fell all for the sake of the plot. Although, I do think it was good he wasn't the star, since some treat him like he is practically invincible. I am sure Pikachu could tie or beat with Charizard if they battled.

Ash completely mucked up the entire battle, and topped it off by using Seismic Toss on a Ghost Pokemon. If Ash actually slowed down and thought more about his moves, he would have avoided such simple mistakes and Charizard would have won & not been as tired. Brandon is the strongest Frontier Brain, and he would leave no mistake like that unpunished.
The underlying reason why Ash did make such rookie mistakes was for the sake of the plot. The writers purposefully had Charizard go out first to add tension, and force Ash to rely on Bulbasaur/Squirtle/Pikachu to take down Brandon's team. I think everyone expected Charizard to be the final Pokemon who finally takes down one of the Regis, and when he got KO'd that was a real shock.
They purposely didn't show Charizard Vs. Blaziken or Dusclops because it lost.
Ash has faced opponents before who used brute force to win, and overcame by using strategy, and while yes the trainer is half the battle, making up excuses on either side of this rediculious arguement i see going on regarding Charizard's status isn't going to do anything but cause tension, so please knock it off.
To me, this episode as a nostalgia booster is more or less PERFECT...it almost completely summarized charmander's whole career as Ash's pokemon including the majority of his major battle ranging from Golbat and aerodactyl to dragonair, magmar, poliwrath and articuno...the references to pidgeotto annd primeape were wonderfully done as well...I loved this episode...

charmeleon was never saluting but rather pointing at the wound on his head due to a rock kicked down by aerodactyl...demanding an explanation...

Sorry guys, it looks like the writers messed up again.
It looked to me like Charizard came in from Professor Oak's lab. If I am right, then the writers are idiots because they failed to remember that Charizard was never Oaked; it was left in the Charicific Valley. They even said so earlier in the Animé, and still they messed it up!
Please tell me I'm wrong and correct me.
I love my cute little Machop!
Come on, you know Machop is cute! I mean, who couldn't love those endearing eyes? That adorable face? That loving embrace?
Just don't call it cuddly or else it will hurt you.
"I don't live in absolutes, absolutes are my fantasy."
My eyes! (my eyes!) are filled with curiosity! You think! (You think!) that you have power over me! In this life! (This life!) There’s no room for you and me! So turn around and face the day with me!
Such a sexy song. Urgh.
Ash doesn't make those type of rookie mistakes in key battles (especially if this was the final fight or something), and had he not in the above scenario, Charizard would have won the contest.
Anyway, it's hardly an embarrassing loss. Brandon's Dusclops is very powerful for being able to tank that many Charizard hits.
Unless there's a rematch, the episode made it fairly clear that Charizard was definitely a par above Dragonite. He tanked that Dragon Rush like a boss, and Dragonite's arm was banged up after that Dragon Tail.
Pretty damn good episode. It was nice to see Charizard in action since Battle Frontier. Those flashbacks were awesome, Kanto Ash,Misty and Brock in BW animation style looks pretty good. Shame that Charizard lost his signature move(?) since Charizard won most of his battle by seismic toss like we saw in those flashbacks. Well I'm pretty sure we'll see that killer move again at some point since Charizard will be staying for some time with Ash I think
A very nice episode. I enjoyed it very much. But I hope Ash won't spam Charizard every time there is a chance to battle. He needs to remind himself there is other pokemon in his team that needs to be trained. xD
Wow, it's times like this that really bring out the Drama Queen within a person.. Someone said that their childhood is ruined because of a few redrawn scenes, using an up to date art style and different colours? Really? Well I hate to think what lackluster childhood you suffered from then, that results in this having such an impact..
I think this was done really well, albeit a few colouring issues like Pidgeotto's head and Aerodactyl's foot in that one scene (Iwane, was this really you?). It really demonstrated that Ash can actually remember his old Pokemon and friends.. and even though he doesn't need to go into such detail all the time, it would be nice if he did have a quick flashback to Noctowl, Gible, etc if he see's one.
