    Just a question: they fight with their own Pokemon or with "Rental Pokemon"?. In the episode's preview, it seemed that May used a Hitmonchan and Ash used a Hitmonlee.

    Did you not just answer you own question? Since they're fighting with hitmonlee/hitmonchan and neither Ash or May own either of these pokemon I think it's obvious that they're battling with pokemon belonging to the dojo.

    This episode, despite being a huge waste of potential, looks very good and excellently animated. It'll easily be the best of the saga so far no matter what happens.

    Quite true. The animation looks to be very good. There's nothing like a good old fashioned beat down. Though TR will interrupt the battle like they do always. *Kills TR but they recover* Frak it all.

    Ash and May battling alone makes this episode good. Although I still wish we got a Grovyle Vs. Combusken match, the two of them controlling the two Hitmon's should be very good as well.

    I wonder who will win!? It could go either way.

    Everyone keeps talking about Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan, but why not Hitmontop? I mean he's also in the show.

    I don't think hitmontop was used in the battle between Ash and May, which is where the majority of the focus seems to be...

    Second question being, who won? Unless Team Rocket interupted the battle so it never ended so there isn't a winner or a loser.

    If Rocketto Dan dosen't interfere with the battle, I'm hoping Satoshi winds up winning. I know they're using Pokemon they've never used before, but over three years experience in training and battling gives Satoshi a bit of an edge.

    Also, Haruka just had her Zenigame learn Ice Beam and in the very next episode (much to my distaste) beat Harley in the contest she was in. If they let Haruka win this too, it would make it look like the writers favor Haruka over the other characters (well, more so then usual). I think it's Satoshi's turn to win.

    Havent seen the episode yet but im sure that if the battle isn't interupted and nothing stupid happens then ash will win. He's more experienced then may and a better battler and has alot more confidence in himself then may has in herself. The time where Torchic battled i think it was tailow was the stupidest thing i ever saw. torchic used ember on ash therefore he couldn't command taillow anymore and he lost.lol, what the hell was that. but anyway may couldn't beat him in a fair battle at that time so that was the only way.

    Nobody won the match. TR interrupted as usual and they didn't finish battling afterwards. I call cop out!

    Looked at the pics on the main site

    I'm not sure of what was going on,but as well as a breloom cameo,there was also a hariyama.The hitmontop belonged to the girl and used it against TR.This ep made me think of the hitmontop debut because TR made a pointless return at the end of the ep and the Dojo master almost looked the same,except he had a hooked nose.

    I. Hate. TR.

    They degraded this episode. Pure and simple. There was no reason at all to interupt that spectacular match. Is this all that they're good for, cutting in on a major fight to bring the adrenaline down?

    Otherwise, a fantastic episode. Good animation. I don't see why they didn't opt for a more in-game relation, but oh well. Very Japanish.

    I agree with V Faction this was a good episode, and could've been even better if TR didnt interupt the match. Man its times like this that i hate them. It was great to see Hariyama. The animation was very good. Jessie has her hair back to normal. Man Hitmochan was fast, when he was getting couple of hits in may was so excited thats why they had the firey background, but when ash had hitmonlee knee hitmochan in the face and make it fall down may's face was priceless. lol.

    It seems like the writers are too scared to ever have a definite winner between Ash or May. Whenever they battle each other they never have a "real" ending.

    Are they really worried that people will think May is stronger than Ash if she beats him in a real battle? Or are they worried that Ash will put May in her place in a non-contest battle?

    It seems they don't want to have either Ash or May have a clear victory over the other.

    Man what a drag, so obvious in was going to end in a tie.

    Yeah Team Rocket become irritable in situations like this but they're only made out to be because the writers haven't got any other frigging ideas in how to finish ties off. Either that or they just play it out until the narrator concludes the episode, which sucks too.

    It figures that they wouldn't want to have either Ash or May win over the other. If May beats the seasoned trainer, it would be unrealistic and people would complain that she was turning into a canon-Sue. If Ash beats the female co-ordinator, it might look as though the writers were undercutting May's profession, suggesting that co-ordinators aren't really any great shakes at battling - or worse, that girls can't win against boys. It doesn't put out a great message. Although TR interrupting is still a cop-out. But hey, that's what they always do. Ash and Misty's gym battle (for which rather more was at stake) is a case in point.

    Looks like what I expected- wasted potential of what could have easily been the best episode in a long while.

    Why is the entire episode, including the cool battle, wasted just because there was no winner?

    Indeed, people seem to be letting their expectations get the better of them and stop them from enjoying the episodes for what they are...
