Episode Summary

EDIT
Continuing the journey to Veilstone City, Ash and the others are at a Pokémon Center watching a contest on TV (and to give time for Ash and Pikachu to rest after eating too much), where they see Kenny win his second ribbon, which upsets Dawn. They then reveal that the next contest will be held in Solaceon Town, and Dawn decides to start training for that contest. Ash also starts to train for his next gym battle. Zoey arrives at the center and decides to help Dawn train. During the training, Ash's Aipom and Dawn's Buizel are distracted by the other's training, and so Zoey suggests that they trade them. Ash and Dawn start to think about the trade, and when Team Rocket attacks, they decide to use the other pokémon as a test to help decide what they should do.moreless

    This was a great episode of Pokemon! Continuing the journey to Veilstone City, Ash and the others are at a Pokémon Center watching a contest on TV (and to give time for Ash and Pikachu to rest after eating too much), where they see Kenny win his second ribbon, which upsets Dawn. They then reveal that the next contest will be held in Solaceon Town, and Dawn decides to start training for that contest. Ash also starts to train for his next gym battle. Zoey arrives at the center and decides to help Dawn train. During the training, Ash's Aipom and Dawn's Buizel are distracted by the other's training, and so Zoey suggests that they trade them. Ash and Dawn start to think about the trade, and when Team Rocket attacks, they decide to use the other pokémon as a test to help decide what they should do. Ash and Dawn trade their Pokemon in this episode which I feel is a right considering what happened in the episode where they got distracted. Looking forward to the future episodes!



    Final rating: 7.4 to 8.0

  • Another enjoyable episode!

    This episode happened to be on today, and I thought it was quite enjoyable! It features some interesting training, as well as a Pokemon Trade!



    Team Rocket's scheme was hilarious, as we know it always its!This scheme reminded me of something from a long time ago, but I can't place it.



    The thing that comes through my head when I watch Rocket is tha t why do these kids not realise who these people are! They have only put on different clothers. They have the same hairdo, and they even have a Meowth! Is it not kinda obvious!?!



    Aside from that, I enjoyed the Buizel/Aipom traed. I really like Buizel, and I used it in my first time playing Pearl Version. It's really awesome as a Floatzel too!



    All up, a good episode! I tihnk I always enjoy the Gym Battle episodes the most, but this was great too!moreless
