Good Episode. Still wondering when Dawn will freeze her legs off.

I tried to record the episode but my CPU wasn't good enough for Haupaugge :( I'll try next week's through A/V instead of Cable

Not much to say since it's a gym battle episode

- Wow, Gliscor hit into the wall o.O
- Obama wins against Grotle
- Haha, I like the shot of Candice when she sort of looms over Ash
- Paul ~

It's always better when me and my brother watch it together.
Funny, funny.

Abomasnow looked pretty intense in this episode, pretty epic,
and I liked how it sounded like he was saying "Obama" XD

Candace needs a hint of maturity in her voice.
She sounds like a screaming fangirl type. Seriously. T_T
And be more modest, like in the games.

The sliding Chimchar was the best part of episode xD
But what I don't get is Candace... as poster above me said USA dub made her like 10 years old...

And the end with Paul? Pure awesomeness :D He just pops up and "I wanna challenge ya to a battle" :D

Ash used Action Replay because Obamasnow's ability is Snow Warning, which makes it hail. Blizzard should not have missed Chimchar in hail since it's never miss accuray in hail. Candice should have made Obamasnow hold Occa Berry, since that berry weakens fire moves.

Good Episode. Still wondering when Dawn will freeze her legs off.

Forgot Dawn, Candice's skirt is even shorter than her's. It's a surpise that neither got hyperthermia, lol.

Very true. :)

She wears a skirt shorter than Dawn's in the winter. Nuff said.

I agree, epic.

I was a bit disappointed, I wanted to see Frosslass in Candice's team instead I got Medicham. Now I'm just gonna expect an Octillery in Volkner's team.

Nice episode, quite a cool battle. But even Chimchar was like "wtf?" when Abomasnow lost.
Also Staraptor, or was it Chimchar, won too easily..

Yeah, my only dissapointment was the ominous music when Paul appeared. I mean, wtf??? It's not like he's evil or something, and they aren't gonna stick around to watch his battle, are they??(it's obvious he'll win, he's better than Ash)

Which begs a good question, has the anime ever used the Attack dampening Berries? I don't think they have, have they?

And I think you mean hypothermia, but you were close.

I think the only type of berries they've used that had purpose other than to make PokeBlocks/Poffins was the Oran Berry which restored health

Candices voice is so annoying its so high pitch she dose sound like a screaming fan girl (like stated above)

Probably not. They've only used the Oran/Sitrus berries. An Occa Berry would have turned the match towards Candice's favor.

And I think you mean hypothermia, but you were close.

Yeah, sorry about that. Maybe they are wearing several layers of skin colored stockings.

I haven't seen the match, so I can't comment. In my gaming experiences, those type of Berries have been a pain, but it isn't impossible to prevail, either.

No worries. Just wanted to point that out.

(Yeah! Flesh colored leggings, which would make sense. Heh.)

Now that was a fun 25 minutes. :D What with Obamasnow's "tough guy" act and Paul randomly appearing at the end, 10/10!!

Isn't it just me, or is Candice's last Pokemon named ABOMASNOW and not OBAMASNOW? That Pokemon's does not in any way act like or resemble our current President (just to throw that out there) :)

It was amazing how Abomasnow knocked out Staraptor and Grotle with just one hit though.

Candices voice is so annoying its so high pitch she dose sound like a screaming fan girl (like stated above)


I agree. It was a pain to hear her talk. I actually enjoyed trying to understand what Fantina from Hearthome was saying than listening to Candice.

Those types of berries are very good in the Battle Frontier though. I use Shuca berry (weakens ground moves) and Chople berry (weakens fighting moves) on my Magnezone and Aggron and Passho Berry (weakens water moves) on my Armaldo.

No worries. Just wanted to point that out.

Yep.

(Yeah! Flesh colored leggings, which would make sense. Heh.)

Yeah, but I still kinda like Candice's outfit. School girl. ^_^

Was I the only one shouting "WAT WAT WAT" at Abomasnow's Ice Punch? Snorlax's ice punch was only ever a normal punch with a bit of a blue glow - why does Abomasnow have the ability to fire a whole blizzard from its hand? Surely that attack is, um, blizzard?

I think that would fit the "New Powers as the Plot Demands" TV trope.

Obamasnow gets STAB on Ice Punch, unlike Snorlax. Really, Obamasnow's never miss Blizzard due to auto hail is the much better attack though.

Fun battle. I thought it was pretty interesting for them to have a 4 on 4 battle. Chimchar sliding on ice was neat. Also, Meowth's huge laugh when they went to the storage room was wierd, but funny.

On to the final gym!

Strategy is the key to victory.
