    The infamous "4Kids last dubbed episode" episode. The actors played their roles well in this episode. The old man was clearly the best character in this episode bar none.

    Anyone think ash's comment to pikachu about winning the battle frontier (in an episode having nothing to do with the frontier brains) and then his classic laugh was a purposeful "last time" thing, since of course it was the last time having Veronica Taylor's voice?
    My 3DS Friend Code is 0576 3520 6954. I have both sun and moon version, and my sun version has my well trained and semi-competitive pokemon.

    I have played and beaten all of the main series pokemon games at some point except for Silver, Crystal and Pearl versions, though the only ones I still have now are Sun, Moon, OR, AS, X, Black 2, Platinum, Firered and Emerald. I also have a virtual console yellow version. I have and LOVE pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

    He likely said the same thing in the Japanese version though.

    I'll be honest: I find this episode incredibly retarded in terms of plot, but what this episode marks really strikes a sensitive chord with me, so I can't help but tear up whenever I watch this one.

    I hate the episode itself, but it marked the last time I'd ever get to hear my favorite voice actors on Pokémon. They are Veronica Taylor, Eric Stuart, Rachael Lillis, Maddie Blaustein, and Amy Birnbaum.

    I really can't even begin to express how much I have missed these guys over the years. It's a damn shame 4Kids and TPCi couldn't have worked something out rather than the awful way they handled things, and 4Kids kept on going with the dub. I really feel that looking back, they were the best company for the job, not TPCi.

    Anyway, as stupid as the episode is, I remember it for being the final time the English dub was ever really itself for me. And so, I say goodbye to 4Kids who really did a truly wonderful job during their tenure with Pokémon.

    People criticize them for the edits, the errors, and the replaced music (all things TPCi has continued to do in more or less the same way, mind you), but 4Kids showed a great deal more care and effort when handling the dub to me than TPCi ever really has. So, that's all I have to say there.

    As for Veronica and company...well, what a tragedy they got shafted. Just wrong on every level to me. I feel really bad they went out on such a crappy filler episode, but they made the episode good for me, so I thank them for it and say I always miss them myself.

    This was probably one of the funniest episodes of the series. And had great battles and animation so it was a good ep for 4kids to go out on.

    This was a pretty good episode, it was pretty funny. May scared me in it with her noodles obsession XD. I also enjoyed the battle between Ash and May.

    It was neat seeing another episode that focused mainly on Fighting type Pokemon.
    Didn't see Ash and May having to battle each other coming.

    It was funny seeing May act so passionately over ramen noodles again. I felt bad for Ash and Max when they were forced to clean the dojo for that old guy though, and I thought Hitmonchan vs, Hitmonlee had potential at first, but then the old guy hurt his back. Ugh. Seeing May and Ash train Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee was refreshing though.

    This episode made me sad since it was 4Kids's last episode and to make things worse it was also just a filler about Fighting types in Saffron. 4/10

    Aww this was 4kids' last dubbed episode. Well the master of the dojo was funny and I liked how he made Ash, Max and Pikachu clean the floors ha ha. Hitmonchan vs Hitmonlee could've been better tho.

    Meh, despite 4Kids ending their run here, this episode sucked. It should've been about Ash's friends exploring Saffron and seeing Sabrina...

    This Saffron City episode could've been better if we had gotten a Sabrina cameo. I was sad when I realized that the voice actors would change after this.

    I actually enjoyed this lol. It was funny how May will do whatever to get her ramen. She actually fought really well against Ash, even though the battle was never determined.

    I enjoyed the battle between Ash and May as well. Of course, the battle didn't really have an ending, unfortunately. Apparently the writers like to do that to us in AG. Overall though, it was cool to see Ash use a Fighting type Pokemon again. And of course it was very nostalgic too, cause he hasn't owned a Fighting type Pokemon since Primeape.

    Tbh this episode would've been ten times better if we had seen Ash's Primeape again given the Fighting Dojo setting. It was a missed opportunity. :<
