it has been a while since i saw misty in the episode so it was good to see her again, 8/10.
I was sad that the Hoenn Saga had ended there, and now it was time for something new. But then, once Ash considers the BF, I knew it wasnt over yet. It never was. Since Max came back with Prof. Birch. And I think May as well with someone else.
I was so glad to see Misty again, since the 4th and 5th episode of Season 7. Misty really needs to appear more often.
I thought this was one of the best battles Ash has had with an E4 member. That was probably because he didn't know Agatha was an E4 member...
I liked that Team Rocket got an assignment from Giovanni and that their rivals, Butch and Cassidy appeared too.
Ash going back to an old gym was unexpected, and so was Agatha and Scott.
The battle itself was great. Ash was winning in the beginning, but sneaky Agatha and her Gengar turned the tables. The closest Elite Four victory ever I think. 9/10
Agatha would have to be very hard to beat since even Ash couldn't do it. I guess if you couldn't do it then you would have to go to a different gym which you can do. (I wonder if Agatha meant several months since she became the owner of it, would that give a sort of timeline from between the Earth Badge and this episode). Wasn't too sad to see May, Max and Brock go since I knew they were coming back,
This episode was ok... It was cool to see E4 member Agatha for the 1st time. Her Gengar is really powerful! Even though Ash lost, the battle was very cool. It was cool to see Scott for the 1st time. Scott is my favorite Pokemon character. It was great to see Misty get an Azurill, and that it was the child of Tracy's Marill.
What a lovely episode it was hilarious how jessie/james & cassidy/butch kept on fighting & cant forget the writers little surprise close to the ending of the episode
Team Rocket getting pogo-sticks was funny, while Cassidy and Butch got scooters. Ash calling Max while he was gone while seeing that super cute Poliwag was sad for him... Seeing Agatha as a temoraily Gym Leader was nice. Ash did a god job, even though he lost. I don't care about May and Max, and I knew Brock would return when I saw this episode for the first time, so I wasn't very sad about that. This episode introduced the Battle Frontier in a nice way. And the most awesome thing was seeing Ashyboy's boyfriend Misty back, and her Azurill is so cute! I'd like to see it as an Azumarill someday. 10/10 for an awesome episode!
Surprising that Ash did better than he usually does against Elite Four members. I'll just chalk it up to Agatha playing with him though. It was good to see Misty and the other Pallet Town group again.
