I know I gave this episode a lot of crap... And I'm still sour about using Overheat over Blast Burn... But it makes up for that in having a wicked cool battle!
Wasn't Articuno supposedly faking? Or am I mish-mashing that with one of Ash's early pity badges.
Fun Fact: For the longest time (if you consider when this title was released long) I thought today's episode was called "The Symbol of Life"
