  • Kimono Rockets

    Team Rocket's disguises reminded me a fair bit of what would later be the Kimono girls (GSC/HGSS). I'm also amazed they had time to squeeze in Ash's battle with Koga.

    Grade C+
  • Ninja Traphouse!

    I love this episode because the traps was set up in the Fushcia Gym to prevent intruders. Doesn't it remind you when you go inside on someone else's house and there are traps there? Anyways, I found it funny when the heroes had too much of trap adventures which really humored me.
