    I'm looking forward to this episode when it gets its US airing. Seems like for all the faults one could have with the show, it worked right for at least this one episode.

    My one thought: Should've been a 2 or 3 episode mini-tournament, topping off with the Tucker battle. I can't imagine a huge facility like the Battle Dome being built only for Tucker's battles.

    Tucker's Arcanine is really cool, I saw this episode by downloading it, and I must say: Arcanine's Fire Blast is really impressive...

    What about Team Rocket? What were they scheming this time?

    Nothing. I've seen it, all they did was brush Tucker's hair and then distribute snacks during the match.

    while they were serving the costumers, they watched the battle too (Which was Awesome!) and they were very impressed with Tucker's tactics! Meowth than said funny: We love tactics too, but we always get blast away

    Again, just saw this in the US. This episode was awesome. Ash and Tucker's intro to the stage was cool. Swellow's also got a terrible new voice. It was cool to see Fire Blast shot like that. Water Pulse looked awesome, although at first I thought Swampert was gonna use Muddy Water. I really can't wait to see that attack in the anime. The battle was amazing.

    wow, i just saw this episode a couple seconds ago

    corphish's new voice is horrifying, maybe even worse than ash


    and swellow and corphish were hit directly by super powerful attacks, but swampert and arcanine were defeated by 1 super weak aerial ace and crabhammer

    did i mention they were only hit once?

    Oh, my! I liked the Japanese version better, but it was fabulous! PUSA is doing a good job, if you know what I mean... better than stereotypical 4Kids.

    The Japanese version>the dubbed version

    Tucker had a better voice and the battle seemed more exciting in the original. I mean in the dub, everything felt boring and uninspiring, rather than epic and full of flair.

    Tucker's voice was actually really cool. I dunno if it fit him, per se, but it sounded excellent.

    On the other hand, Swellow's voice was pretty bad =/ Corphish's voice wasn't bad, but it was bloody strange after getting so used to its old voice.

    Superb animation, yes, but even this team was a little off here and there. Swampert's head looked horrendously overlarge in one scene in the latter half of the episode. It was using Water Gun, iirc, and its head was noticeably huge.

    A good episode, though. Team Rocket didn't interfere, which is a welcome change. It sort of flew by, actually, but I guess the battle was just so highly-charged that I didn't notice the time passing.

    Haha Tucker's voice was pretty cool, though I've always imagine it would sound a bit like Harley's. xD But it's good anyways.

    I loved how they did Ash's and Tucker's intro.
    And the part where Ash is like "Who's Tucker?" *People turn blue and are shocked*
    Ash: What? Did I say something dumb?
    And the part when May and Max imagine Norman in Tucker's outfit. That was funny xD

    But yeah, this was a really great episode. <3 I loved it.

    Swellow's also got a terrible new voice.
    Well, it was off, but it didn't sound too different from its hoarse crow-call from AG. I dunno, the sound of all that music pumping in the background drowned it out.

    Also, did anyone see how they showed off all those places Ash battled in, including the Whirl Cup? Wow, the writers went overboard glorifying Ash in this episode. The press conference reminded me of "Air Time!" - seems Ash has lost the nervousness of being in front of a mic.

    This was an awesome episode, and I loved how they kept everything intact. Tucker loves to entertain, and they kept the whole arena battle two-on-two thing from the Emerald game. That's great considering how they screwed up the last two Brains. (Not that I hated them, just that they wasted potential by not using the game's rules there and giving Greta cliche fighting Pokemon.)

    This was my favorite episode ever!
    Though, that could have something to do with Tukcer being my favorite character ever.

    Ash actually had a AWESOME battle, not just an OK one for once.
    I LOVE Tucker's battle style, and is cocky attitude.

    If you hate this battle, you hate all of Pokemon.

    I don't think anything more needs to be said.

    Neato, frito, bandito!

    Okay sorry for that, this was the only episode from this morning that I got a chance to see (so I'll have to wait to see the other one).

    Anyways, pretty good episode. I saw the Japanese version a couple of months ago and of course I had to see this episode in English for a couple of reasons. One of those reasons was of course hearing Tucker's voice. I really don't know what I was expecting for his voice, but who cares, I like his voice and I guess it can fit with what I've been doing for the past year.

    As for the battle itself, next to Anabel's, Tucker's battle was pretty exciting. And I've never been a fan of Ash's gym/battle frontier battles.

    Those poor girls in the audience, they're going to cry when they find out that Tucker is really gay and marries a coordinator named Harley

    The battle was great in this episode, but it felt a little rushed at the end with the deus ex machina Aerial Ace and Crabhammer. They could have stretched this battle out some more but I know how they like to squeeze everything into one episode and halfass the end of the battle.

    Remember Golden Swellow?

    This was a great battle episode. One of the best, considering that it actually had some type of tactics in it!~ Awesome.

    I think Tucker's voice actually fit, and the attacks from Swampert and Arcanine were pretty cool
    They're going throught these Frontier brains battles fast

    This episode totally rocked! I really love the tactics that Ash and Tucker used. And I loved Tucker's voice! It suited him so well. ^^ And I liked the part where Ash and Tucker had thier entrances. That was totally cool. ^^

    This is my favorite battle from all of Pokémon. Everything is just handled perfectly. Good attacks, strategies, didn't turn into a slideshow of both of them yelling the same attacks 20 times over, and had great art throughout the entire episode. The ending was a bit rushed, but it really didn't hurt it that much.

    I hope more battles are like this in the future.

    This isn't really on par with some other awesome matches(coughcoughcharizardvsmagmarcoughcough), but this is still a great battle. Look at all the awesome animation~!*_*

    Tucker...his voice really stood out! It kept on a constant 'lone person in the empty gymnasium' echo, part of the reason of it being really good(I'd hate to say this, but think Undertaker.). PUSA has nailed it with two brains in a row--can they go for the full six?

    This deserves a solid 9/10.
