January 28th, 2006, 7:00 AM
Here is where you can discuss the part one of the eighth Hoenn badge two parter and the playboy Juan laced, "The Great Eight Fate".
My review to come forthwith.
(Since both episodes are airing this morning, I'll do them, heh.)

Well, this was a, ...er..., interesting episode. A double battle with Seaking and Sealeo on Juan's side, and Pikachu and Snorunt to start for Ash. I still don't get how they make Horn Drill repel an electric attack, like Blaine's Rhydon. Ah well, this episode ended with a cliff-hanger as Grovyle was hit by a Sweet Kiss. All in all, I'd give it an 8/10 since they kept Juan as he was in Emerald, minus the double battle.

I think you should have done them together in one tread since it was a two parter and stuff. That is just me.
Sootpolis looked nice. I wish they spent more time on it. Well it just a city but this one is inside a dead volcano.
Finally we have made it to the last badge of Hoenn. Last but not easy as Juan prove it to be. Crazy one too.
Team Rocket wasn't completely useless like in the other gym episodes. I mean at least they didn't eat up time like they did in the Liza and Tate one. Stealing pokemon in the middle of the battle and wasting all that time. They just shown how powerful Juan is to Ash.
Juan. He has a hipanic orgin sounding name. So what is up with the white guy voice. He had that smooth voice but if they could have gave him the accent then I be head over heels for him. Drop dead and all. He may be old but he be my man. Still the guy was able to put up a battle.
I didn't get the Horn Drill countering Tunder/Tunderbolt thing eirhter. Made no sense. Then Icy Wind and Blizzard? Wouldn't Blizzard overpower it and make it worst on Pikachu.
We saw that Snorunt isn't a team player becasue it didn't really help at all in the double battle. I not sure why Ash even use it since he caught it like two episodes ago. Thats Ash for you. Snorunt is at least keeping his personality as being mischift.
Pikachu and Corpfish to the recuse. It seems that they like Swellow and Pikachu can make a good team.
Lasty the one on one battle with Luvdisc and Grovyle. The ciffhanger that leads us to the next battle. Confuse.
6/10-This episode was a good one. I mean it was keep you hanging to the next episode and Team Rocket wasn't a problem. The double battle got me going 'ehh?'. Logic wasn't use here I guess.

Juan~ glad they chose to keep it with Emerald's plotline. Can't wait to see Wallace as the Champion or what not~
I thought they dragged it out a bit. Personally.
