This was a good episode, and definitely one of my favorites in the infamous Season 9.
I really didn't like Bill's Brock in DP, but here it was an entirely different case for me. I feel he was the best replacement VA at the time, and this episode really gave him a chance to shine and acclimate to his role.
Michele did a good job imitating Lindsey Warner's Mudkip. Surprisingly I didn't notice much change here.
Bill did an okay Grovyle, I guess. Meh...
Sarah Natochenny couldn't emote at all as Ash here. I can't stop laughing at the, "Quick Grovyle use bullet seed!" line in particular. HAHAHAHAHA. XD.
May: "I've never seen Ash work it so hard before."
Ummm...WTF? Who wrote this line? Terrible...
Max's voice starts sucking majorly from this point until the end of Max's duration on the show. Kayzie now FAILS at his voice, IMO, from here up until AG192. Not at all even CLOSE to Amy Birnbaum's portrayal...pitiful.
Anyway, I really liked the episode anyway, and I loved how Brock made the potion using the ingredients. I also love how Marshtomp evolved and its interactions with Flaffy.
Bill did a good job here, IMO.
