  • Introduction of Drake's Dragonite

    "Enter The Dragonite"

    Grade: A*

    Now this episode was a really good one, in which follows the 2nd half of the Orange League champion battle between Ash and Drake. Ash has managed to knock out 3 of Drake's Pokemon already, but when he reaches his final one, being the almighty Dragonite, the one where every trainer struggles to beat, will Ash break his winning streak and defeat him?

    This battle was epic, especially the 2nd half, of Drake bringing out his Dragonite and managing to knock out 3 of Ash's Pokemon in quick succession. My favourite was Charizard vs Dragonite, but the funniest was Ash's Pikachu defeating Dragonite once and for all, holding onto him and dragging his face into the sand. Team Rocket in this one were quite funny too, when James was annoyed that he didn't get his nachos after being blasted off by Dragonite. Overall, this episode featured quite possibly the most epic trainer battle between Ash and a Champion, and I believe this is the only time he's actually won, yet he's still not a Pokemon Master!moreless
  • One of the best episode.

    This episode is one of the best episode in the Pokemon League. Wow! Ash won. Ash really did it. He really defeat Drake. The last battle was the total point of the episode. It was amazing. Ash and Pikachu battle very hard but Drake and Dragonite battled hard too. It was a very tough battle. It was like one of the best battle in the season. Ash and Pikachu won but by a hair. Then they award him with a trophy. Ash was very proud of himself and his Pokemon- Buabasaur, Taurus, Squitle, Charizard, Pikachu, and Lapras. Well overall, it was a great episode.moreless

  • The continuation from the first one.

    This episode marks the last part of the Orange League. Here, Ash battles a Venusaur here and beats it. Then came up an Electabuzz and defeated it. Now the last Pokemon, Dragonite became the tough Pokemon to beat as when it was very weak, Pikachu only one here launches Thunder Attack on it and Ash wins the Orange League.
