  • Thunder armor? Seriously?

    In the biggest twist since "Aim for the Horn", Ash somehow wins his seventh badge by extreme cheating. Seriously....Thunder Armor? Are the writers getting THAT desperate enough to shove in cheap plot devices? They seriously needed to do something that might have made more sense. This is the biggest cheat Ash has used in the entire series. The rest of the episode was just as predictable as the rest of the series: Ash fights Gym leader, Team Rocket comes, group beats Team Rocket....again....and Ash fights Gym leader again. He wins. Big freaking whoop. This show is getting desperate, and needs to die already...moreless
  • Ash's 7th gym battle was a great one indeed.

    This is one of Ash's best battle ever. It start going regularly until Team Rocket showed up. They wanted to steal Solrock and Lunatone and they ended of destroying the gym. They manage to get away butthe gang catched them. The battle field got destroyed so they had to battle in an open field. Ash was having a hard time battling since Tate and Aliza got they teamwork back until he notice the clouds moving in the sky. He told Pikachu to use ThunderBolt and the clouds. It turned Swellow and Pikachu to gold armor. It was awesome. Tate and Aliza used everything thet could to counter it, but nothing worked. Ash won the battle and earn him the 7th badge.moreless
  • Ash's Seventh Gym Battle

    THis is one of the best Gym Battles ever! The first part is hilarious especially with Pikachu & Swellow running into the planets! The only thing I hated was Team Rocket interuptting in the middle of the battle! Why couldn't it have been the end of the episode! The Gym Battle is one of the most serious ones to dates and will not let you down! Especially the shocking conclusion! A Good Epsiode Indeed!moreless
