What really let this episode down IMO was the fact that once again Ash's Pokemon get pummeled then end everything with their first succesful attacks. Would it kill the writers to make the battles a little more even?
Yes, I watched the episode this morning and it happened the same as with his previous Battle Frontier battles. The brain's pokémon do a lot of damage to Ash's pokémon and when they hit their rivals for the first time they win. When that happens for the third time in a row, you can see how unoriginal the writers can get.
It's not the battle or the episode itself what was bad, is how Ash wins what makes it a little hard to believe.
Thanks. So the female reporter was played by the girl who plays Officer Jeny in japanese. How long has it been since we've seen a Officer Jenny?
*checks bulbapedia* YAY, I guessed right. The grl who played the pipi longstocking girl in The Breeding House episode is the same girl who plays Mokona on Tsubasa!
So far I'm really liking this episode. It was hilarious how Ash got mobbed at the beginning by all the reporters, and the press conference and his intro video were really cool. It's nice to see Ash getting some press coverage, you'd think that after he'd competed in 4 major leagues that he'd be a little famous ^_^. I havn't finished the episode yet because my copy of it was messed up .
He won the orange league though, so you'd think that would at least get a mention in newspapers or something, especially since Drake was undefeated before that, and he'd probably have some fans who have watched his matches on TV. It would be interesting if they made an episode where the kids run into Ash or May fans. Maybe they could discover an "Ash club" or something ^_^.
