  • Cacturne! And a mean coordinator.

    8.0
    After a long time of no contests, this episode was one of the best ones ever! I really loed the way Harley went against May because of her calling his Cacturne scary, not knowing about Cacturne, and saying his cookies wasn't half bad. Since I loved the way he humiliated May by playing the recording of Max's story about May's story, I died hard abotu hearing it! Sadly, I don't know what to say about May, but she should think before she says a word.moreless
  • Go cacturne! It's your birthday!

    Cacturne is my fav. pokémon. SO here's my recap. May makes an accidental rival named Harley by calling his cacturne scary looking and not thinking his cookies are the best in the world. Yeah harley's got major emotional problems. Meanwhile Team rocket run into some trouble with pokéblock.



    Now for the contest, cacturne and bulbasaur's appeals are lovley but i love the battles. the writers picked out the battles with style with cacturne hopping on azuril's bubbles while bulbasaur fights a speedy surskit and nearly looses.



    You see harley is up to something. He told May that surskit is slow. and in their battle, he plays a tape recording of an embarrassing flashback of May's giving her serious stagefright.



    May isn't letting this bitch harley taking her down though. bulbasaur teaps cacturne in a razor leaf and petal dance combo winning her the match. But harley says he will come back. Dun dun dun!



    This is a very well written episode *throws confetti at writers* a must see episode!moreless

    This episode was a very good one indeed. May competes in another contest on the island of Izabe. This episode introduces May's newest contest rival: Harley. This epsiode was good and Hilarious, especailly the May-Tentacool Story! HAHA! This episode has some of the firecest contest battles I have ever seen so far in the series, it was great. This epsiode will not disappoint Contest fans!

    It starts with Ash and co. on a boat may is practicing with her Balbasaur for her next contest all the sudden a guy comes out of the corner who"s name is Harly he is also entering the pokemon contest with his Cacturne. Harley introduces himself to May and offers her some of his cookies! Then Harley left he was real mad because of May saying his cookies taste ok From then on Harley hates May but steal acts nice to her.They soon get off the boat and departure to the pokemon center before the big contest. Harley tries to study May's ways of battleing.Right after that the pokemon contset begains May against oneother guy (they did not metion his name at least i think).May one the guy and now it was Harley's turn to battle but he was no where in sight. Just after May tries looking for her little brother Max she finds him hanging out with Harley. Harley say's that since he was the little brother of May he had to introduce hinself to Max, May thought thier was no harm in that.Then Harley comes into the battlefeild and he easaly wins against the guy he battled as well. Now it's just May vs Harley. First May was doing real good against her new rival but just then Harley takes out a recorder and turns it on. It tells the story of when May was younger her mom had mistaken her for a Tentacruel.May's brother Max was the recorded voice left on it.Max said he tought that Harley was afraid of pokemon before but Harley had lied just to get the information out of MAX. May at first loses her consintration at first because of the immberassment, but just then Ash tells May to consintrate on her battle instead of the recordeing. May finally come trough and wins her 4th ribbion she now knows not to trust Harley again. With that behind May she only needs one more ribbon for the grade fetival.moreless
