    Great episode of Pokemon! This episode features someone from the games and who is it? It's Aaron, one of the champions of the Elite Four you fight in the games who uses bug types. Anyways on to the episode. Ash and the gang run into Aaron who was having a public practise session with his Pokemon and boy do they look good! Anyways, Aaron has hopes of taking on Cynthia and becoming the next Champion with his bug Pokemon as he has been training hard for a long time and I think he should win and get the title of Champion. It was kinda funny to see well all girls go ga ga over him and wanting his autograph. Even Officer Jenny also wanted his autograph when she should be doing her job, lol........ Next, Dawn also wanted an autograph from Aaron and he was surprised that Ash and the gang have met Cynthia before. Aaron was then nice enough to invite them to his training ground where Bug Pokemon lives and where he trains and bonds with his Bug Pokemon and he even works out too so that his Bug Pokemon won't laugh at him???? That is well cool! However, Team Rocket with thier evil schemes wants to take his Pokemon...... After Team Rocket took Aaron's Pokemon, he was kinda upset and you should have seen his face and you know why. See, Aaron's first Pokemon was a Wrumple who saved him when he could not climb down from a giant tree in the forest. But sadly, Aaron was kinda of a crybaby and was not too good at fighting too. In the end, after losing to a battle, he yells at Wrumple and abandons him! What happened to the Wrumple in the end? Well you will have to watch the episode yourself in the end but don't worry it has a nice ending of course! Overall, I really did enjoy this episode with Aaron of the Elite Four in this episode as it was nice in this episode!! Will he be able to beat Cynthia and be the next Champion? Find out in the next episode!

    Final rating: 8.1 to 8.5

    Final grade: Amoreless
  • Who's the character of the day this time? None other than Aaron of the Elite Four!

    As our heroes continue back to Hearthome City and Ash's 5th Sinnoh Region Gym challenge, they end up passing through a small town. But the small town has a big commotion, as dozens of people have come to see Aaron of the Elite Four, who came to give one of his training presentations. Ash and comp. arrive just in time to see it themselves, and after the presentation is over, Aaron gives out autographs to everyone who wants one (which includes Dawn). After he gives one to Dawn, the group starts a conversation, which eventually leads to Aaron saying that he's training for the upcoming Champion Battle between him and Cynthia. After Ash and the others mention that they're friends with Cynthia, Aaron invites them all to his cabin in the woods where he does most of his training. Meanwhile, Team Rocket come up with a plan to steal Aaron's Pokemon after seeing them perform the way they did...

    It was cool to see another one of the Elite Four, and interesting hearing about Aaron's past with his Wurmple (which returned as a Beautifly in the episode). Also great to see a flashback to Ash and his Butterfree. A pretty good episode, and as always, I'm looking forward to the ones to come.moreless
  • I love Aaron!

    You don't have to agree with me, but Aaron is adorable! I love him! I just want to squeeze his cheeks. Anyway, to the episode. I loved it. I wish I could get Aaron's autograph (I wish he was real). Possible spoilers: The thought of letting an animal (such as a bird) and it coming back is a nice idea (I certainly don't think it's clichéd - you don't have to agree on me with this) and I also think it's cute, too. Baby Aaron is the cutest character on the whole show, and his Pokémon are awesome! I love Drapion and Vespiquen! But Scorupi and Beautifly are awesome too :D.moreless
