  • Dawn takes on Maylene of the Veilstone Gym!

    10
    This was a very interesting episode, which featured Dawn going up against the Leader of the Veilstone Gym; Maylene.



    I really enjoyed this battel, but Dawn's Pokemon selection, with two of her three Pokemon being Nomral-types - was quite unusual, and it hurt hre. She should have used Pachirisu instead of Buneary at the very least.



    The battle was great, an d the little Team Rocket snippets were intresting. Unfortunately, they didn't "blast off" in this episode!



    Unsurprisingly, Maylene wins, but I hope Dawn has gone her confidence back in contests, and I can't wait to see Ash challenging Mayleen next!



    This was a great episode, and a very different one, so I highly recommend it! Keep it up, guys!moreless
  • Dawn is going to have a battle with Maylene soon, who will win in the end???

    9.0
    I say this is another GREAT and EXCITING episode!! Dawn is going to have a battle with Maylene to help her get her confidence back, and it was really great! Although Dawn is suppose to be a Pokemon coordinator for contests, she is going to have a Gym battle! Although in the end she kinda lost, but she did really well for her first Gym battle and her Pokemon were well trained, like her Buneary, Ambipom and Piplup! Maylene's Pokemon that were used during the battle include Meditite and Lucario, one of my most favourite Pokemon!!! Meanwhile, Reggie has started teaching Ash's Staravia the move Brave Bird and Staravia gets to learn it quite well, WITH using Ash as a moving target..... Finally, do I recommend this episode to watch??? Well, who would not want to watch this episode??? It was soooooo exciting seeing the battle between Maylene and Dawn and that it was nice for Maylene to get back her confidence! Lucario seemed really happy and proud of her!! Will Ash win his Gym battle when he fights against Maylene?? Find out in the next episode!!moreless
  • good episode

    Well it was a good battle and it helped raised Maylene and Dawn's spirits and showed Maylene that being a Gym Leader is not about winning or losing but having fun the same kind of thing that is happening in Dawns contests the emphisis of fun and I can't wait for the Wallace Cup episodes which will be fun to watch. good battle and it helped raised Maylene and Dawn's spirits and showed Maylene that being a Gym Leader is not about winning or losing but having fun the same kind of thing that is happening in Dawns contests the emphisis of fun and I can't wait for the Wallace Cup episodes which will be fun to watch.moreless
