  • THe "Mother" of all battles, or so they say...

    This was an interesting Pokemon episode, featuring Dawn's mother Johanna, and her team of Glameow and Umbreon, facing her less expeirenced daughter. The battling was definitely very interesting, as it was great to see mother versus daughter! It was definitely the best part of the episode, and I must say that I really enjoyed that!

    Additionally, Team Rocket were just hilarious, in their bid to catch Goldeen! I can't belieev some of the amaizing Pokemon they caught, such as Whiscash or mainly Crawdaunt, and they are obsessed with useless Goldene, which, in my opinion, are worse than Magikarp (the latter at least evolves into something uselful).

    All up, quite a good episode. There was a lot to enjoy with this episode, and I definittely must say that I recommend it! Keep it up, guys, and I can't wait until the next ones!moreless
