    K, I pulled off all night for this so me is a little brain dead XD

    Decent episode. What I found most epic was when Flint was on the verge of punching Volkner, I was like "OMFG, NON-FANTASY VIOLENCE IN POKEMON!" Now that is a rare, but epic occurrence. And yet, we got no bar fighting today :(

    The battle was decent too, but I am not really convinced that Pikachu should have even been able to resist so much attacks from Infernape and using all those volt tackles for such a long time. And when was the last time it used VT?

    Well, at least next time will be the first gym battle in a ****load of decades. Who's ready to stay up all night for that? ****ing hell not me, I know how to autowake my PC and set up WinTV now.

      Volkner and Flint <3 They're voices I love them. And the poacher, what a nice touch to the whole episode. Team Rocket isn't so bothersome in this episode so I hope it stays like that when Ash and Volkner battle. The sweep by Oba Flint was expected. When Ash rejected the free gym badges because he believed that he had to earn them after winning a battle, I laughed since the first thing I remembered was Kanto.

        Team Rocket will be a big part of the next episode because James is gonna try and take over the solar tower thing.

        Flint's Infernape is crazily overpowered...

          Did anyone else noticed that Flint's Infernape tends to levitate a lot.

          Actually the Gym Battle gets canceled half way through because of Team Rocket so they have to come back later and challenge Volkner again. Since he's too busy fixing the tower.

          - Wow, Volkner's voice is hot
          - Huh, so Volkner's been wearing the same clothes since he was 10
          - Whoaaa, Volkner asked to be punched! Surprisingly violent for Pokemon XD Although, nothing happened
          - Where's Volkner's drink?
          - Oh, OK
          - Volkner's how we're all feeling...

          This episode seemed much more epic in Japanese with subtitles. I wanted Flint to punch Volkner though...

          I'm sure that's not the case, it's probably like Kanto where there are more than 8 Gyms in the region. Barry probably got his one for free but I'm pretty sure Paul wouldn't have taken one and probably searched for another Gym.

          They kinda overdid the Ash=Volkner similarities at the end....1 or 2 was justified....but it was seriously OTT.

          I liked the poacher, and I kinda wish Infernape vs. Infernape had come to more.....although did you notice Flint's was bigger?

          I think that, combined with the power, was showing how Ash's is lv.36 whilst Flint's is lv.50+.

            Great episode, although I agree they did overdo the whole Ash=Volkner thing, but it was still good. And Flint's Infernape is huge compared to Ash's! Awesome.

            And we now know that Flint is at least 20 yrs old (and that was when he left Sunnyshore City).

            Its funny how everyone else ages, sdies ash and gang.
            I acc liked this episode
            i inda like how volkner was all down and not is ussual self.
            i dont like flints look much , but eh volkner has a pretty good deging (yes for once! lol)
            But it was a little scary and overdone of the similarities (i so speeled that wrong)
            Although they added a great touch
            and what?? violence in pokemon? even though i hate violence it showed that they were older and yea i guess.

              The only thing that stood out for me was the threat of an actual fight breaking out. LOL.

              Also Pikachus attack level is **** compared to it's defence.

              Haha I thought Flint was actually going to punch Volkner haha

              Flint's Infernape is strong, and how can Pikachu even manage to hold its ground :cer_eek:

              I love the way Volkner was portrayed in this episode. Like in the games, it just adds a bit of realism to the Pokemon and is telling us that not every trainer is a bubbling, happy easygoing who smile even when they lose. XD;

              A very good episode. Flint's Infernape is so strong! I can't wait to see how this gym battle pans out.

                Best parts were the mild influence of physical violence between Flint and Volkner and the voices of Flint and Volkner. I basically enjoyed this episode all around. The comparison between Ash and Volkner was a bit much, movement and all, but it's what made the episode more worthwhile for me I guess.

                Volkner is very, very tall. ._.

                  How come Pikachu is weak as ****, sure it can defeat Regice (legendary with super good defences) but when it comes to ****** Infernape who fought 2 Pokémon before, it can't do ****.

                  Ash's Pokémon are weak as hell even thought he has been through so much, Pikachu was like lvl 80 in Kanto when they determined it's level. Ash's should just quit, or evolve Pikachu against it's will, who cares what Pikachu want. (Ash!)

                    It's not like Infernape took much of a challenge from Buizel and Infernape.

                      This was a great episode. Sunyshore is just like LaRousse, you know, with the moving sidewalks and stuff. I thought they did a good job showing Volker and Flint's past with each other. I also thought it was cool how they illustrated the resemblance between Ash and young Volkner. The double Pikachu thing was a nice touch.

                      I also never would have thought that the bartender was the poacher. XD

                        This episode was alright. Personally, I think Sunyshore City is a great place to live with all of the technology running on solar panels..."greenest" city in Sinnoh! That's every eco-friendly person's best dream.

                        No wonder Paul said that the City's not legit...you get a badge for making an effort of coming to the Gym! Not if Ash had anything to say about it.

                        Meet Volkner, the most apathetic Gym Leader in all of Sinnoh. And Flint, a member of the Elite 4 with an extremely powerful Infernape.

                        So James is bitter about losing his prized bottlecap...I think TR is going to turn Sunyshore City upside down.

                        Volkner/Ash similarities...coincidence?

                        So the poacher is now the owner of a local shop? That's a nice touch.

                        Looking forward to the Gym Battle!

                        8.5/10

                            Ash's Pokémon are weak as hell even thought he has been through so much, Pikachu was like lvl 80 in Kanto when they determined it's level. Ash's should just quit, or evolve Pikachu against it's will, who cares what Pikachu want. (Ash!)
                            You are scarry.
                            You wouldn't care how your Pokemon feels and just force it to evolve?
                            Wow man.
                            Ask for the episode itself, its one of my favorites.
                            I think I loved most of all, are the comparsions between Ash and Volkner.
                            I just think they did a good job with that.
                            And I loved how Ash wouldn't take the badge for free.
                            I'm glad he learned from his mistakes in Kanto.
                            Barry still has along way to go for that though, you can't always rush in through life and just take badges for free. You do that, you miss the battle experinces and how to do new things next time if you loose.

                              i agree wth the comment above, a real trainer should be able to accept a pokemon, not because its fully evolved.

                              sadly it doesnt work as much in games unless theres a move your waiting for.

                                That part with the Pikachu and the other Pikachu and CHISAKIMONO... It's EPIC. Wish Volkner Cries... I will see him again on BW2 game.

                                Oh, and why is he... emo and bored?

                                1.He beats everyone
                                2.Wastes Electricity
                                3.Wishes to fight someone tough. (Besides Cynthia)
