  • Good episode!

    Ok now in this episode Ash beats some guy right when the episode begains Ash thinks since hh has been on a winning streak that no one is a challange for him anymore he is to over confident. Then after Ash and co. have lunch they meet the elite four Drake who is itching for a battle with Ash beacuse he sees alot of potencail in he's battle stradegy.So Ash and his friends boared Drakes ship and Ash is challanged by Drake. It is Pikachu vs Shelgon Ash thinks he can win with pikachu because of it's speed against Shelgon. But to Ash's surprise Drake does not call a move whatsoever and It's really wired to see a trainer not to call anything at all. At the very last moment when Pikachu was going to use iron tail Shelgon hits Picahu with dragon rage and dragon claw at the same time Pikachu faints.Now Ash sends out Grovyle vs Altaria whitch Alatria has a huge advantage it seem as if Grovyle almost one the victory but then Altaria uses dragon rage and Grovyle fainted. Drake said the reason Ash lost was because he was getting over confetiendt and he needed to focus on his battle more then just his winning streak.moreless
  • Drake Appears

    This was a good episode. We get to see on the Hoenn Elite 4. We did see Steven but his episode sucked. This was a good episode. Ash's battle with Drake was good and I always like seeing ash battle an Eliet 4 memeber. I liked Drake's voice, it suited him so well! The battle was entertaining an Drake's pokemon were amazing. I really liked Altaria. The funny part is Drake seems so much stronger than the other Elite 4 members. Overall, this is a good episode and is very entertaining. It is good from start to finish and one that you'll watch again!moreless
