Here is where you can discuss the first round of the Hoenn League in the double battling "From Brags to Riches."

My review to come forthwith.

I liked Ash's battle against Tropius and Swalot, it was so cool that he finnaly used torkoal again, it seems forever since he last did. I also liked it that somebody else had a Tropius since they are one of my favorite pokemon. But one thing I did notice is that Ash, Morrison, and Tyson's pokemon could take like zillions of direct hits while there opponents would loose after just one direct hit, that seemed a little...'odd'

Yeah, Tyson's Meowth was like....invincible o.O It took tons of hits, and defeated Persian with two or three.

Anyway, I liked the battle between Ash and....the other guy(Can't remember his name) Tropius was almost invincible as well! It took four or five flamethrowers, a couple hits from Corphish, and still used Solarbeam O.o

The last fight between Corphish and Swalot was funny, I really liked how Swalot was defeated! ^^ KO by inflation, how amusing XD

I'm like watching this as we speak on TV XD!

"I'm more ready!" "No I'm more ready!" ; P

Anyways, I'd do what Brock did. Keep record of where all the pretty girls are <3

...Something was off, though...Guillotine is supposed to be a OHKO, but Machamp took two and kept fighting. Also, what exactly was happening with the other pokemon while the scene was off them? Did they just stand there staring into empty space or what?? Sure, it was predictable that they both would win, but I thought that they were going to have Morrison vs Ash in the next episode with the way the last little bit looked.

Yeah...I was kinda surprised that they used gullotine and totally ruined the attack o_O

Wow. It was kind of boring compare to the battles we got back in the Silver Confrenace. I like the Silver one then this one already. Then it is too early to pick faves so I hold my opinion till later.

Funny with Brock keeping records of all the nice looking girls. That should be easy because most of them are Joys.

Morrison's battle. So many things wrong here. It seems like the anime is fighting against the laws of all battle once again. Or they just trained their pokemon very well. Growlie should have been out long ago.

Ash's battle. I bit better but still. Ash does have a talent of doing and winning. Like Gray said back in the Silver-"You have been known to think outside the box." Bubblebeam in the month to win. That is outside the box.

Just have to get that motto in. That is Team Rocket.

Hmm. This was an all battle one. One battle after another.

5/10- This one wasn't all that good. I mean it was battle after battle. Nothing else. No funny or anything. Just straight battle and the battling was against the logic law. It was annoying to see Morrison and Ash competing like that too. I would like to see Tyson fighting.

We still got a few more episodes of this.

I wish TR would just sell concessions. I'm sick of them being hardcore stupid bad guys v_v

Yeah. Would like it if they just stick to selling fake badges. They were very successfull at just doing that in the Silver Conf.
