    Damn token expired so my wall of text is gone.
    Anywho Pokemon Johto League Champions Episode 22 "From Ghost To Ghost" was a solid gym battle ep. Good action and humor. Also a nice change of pace since Team Rocket DIDN'T BLAST OFF. 7.5/10.

      Time for another episode, this one is the last episode i'll watch before Mewtwo Returns!
      Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 25 "The Apple Corp!" (GOOD PUN GUYS)
      Aww look at Pikachu running
      ** Pikachu's BIG mouth
      Wow we now know what Pikachu's teeth look like!
      * Brock being his womanizing self
      ** Meowth getting punched
      AWWW THE APPLES ARE BEING STOLEN BY A BUNCH OF ADORABLE PICHUS
      And one of them has a cute tuft of fur on it's head!
      Wait how did the Pichus say "Pikachu!"
      ** Pikachu wagging his tiny finger.
      ** Good action scene, followed by a funny scene of Pichus with Xs for eyes!
      * Another good action scene followed by Pichus with cute spiral eyes
      I love all the Pichus in this episode! They're SO cute! Misty's thoughts echo mine.
      They're also pretty badass, stopping that big flock of Spearows.
      ** Funny scene with Wobbuffet
      * Pikachu's really big mouth
      I like the video of Pikachu dancing on the TV
      Nice aliteration by Meowth.
      *** EXCELLENT climax, with very good direction, though the music could've been more exciting, I guarantee if you set "Hallowed Be Thy Name" to it it would be the most epic thing ever. And who would've thought PICHUS could be so badass and save the day?
      Closing Thoughts:
      One of the best eps of the year!
      The story was super-cute. The gang finds an apple orchard where many apples are stolen, and it's because of some poor Hungry Pichus! Upon finding this out they work with the Pichus and keep the apple orchard nice, that is until Team Rocket are up to their old tricks once again. An adorable premise with very good direction throughout.
      The action was strong, especially the super-good epic climax.
      Humor was also very strong with many good laughs throughout.
      A great ep and a highlight of Johto. 8.5/10.

        Another big review!
        Pokemon: Mewtwo Returns
        ** Once again Mewtwo's super-dark voice is tops. His introduction is amazingly chilling.
        * Funny scene with Ash and Brock
        *** "Hey I know, i'll use my trusty frying pan as a DRYING PAN!" Pun of the century.
        SICK Bob Dylan ref from Meowth
        I like PikachuTwo's voice
        I'm not sure how water can be "delicious" it kinda has no taste.
        * I like Misty's star eyes
        ** Misty's REALLY big eyes
        The animation in this movie is not like movie-quality but still very good.
        VERY philosophical quote from Mewtwo. "If we can see the moon like they do, why can't we see the earth like they do?" 2 real
        -- very bad explained joke. "Even though it's after midnight I said good morning because if I said good night you might go to bed".
        ** Good directed scene for the climb up the mountain
        Hmm so the val-girl is actually a secret agent named Double-O-Nine, which is two numbers up from James Bond.
        * Potentially good action scene with Pikachu vs Pikachutwo...
        -- Spoiled by Mewtwo.
        Jessie and James hug! ROCKETSHIPPING CONFIRMED!
        ** Very good philosophical speech by Mewtwo, followed by a lovely scene.
        MORE Mewtwo philosophy. "All creatures should control their own destinies".
        ** Well-done action scene
        CRITICIAL FLAW Domino called a Nidorino a Nidoqueen.
        Mewtwo: "I would sooner leave this world than serve you" Woah
        ** More very good action scenes.
        HOLY HELL MEWTWO LOOKS DEMONIC
        Woah Ash CONTAMINATED the water to save Mewtwo that boy's got priorities
        *** And an excellent climax, though not to the extent of the others
        ** Plus a very deep Meowth quote
        * Persian licking it's leg
        Closing Thoughts:
        Underwhelming!
        The main problem was the story. After witnessing an epic revenge plot, an epic quest to save the world, and an epic complex story about the Unown, we get... "Giovanni tries capturing Mewtwo". Not really the best plot for a big movie, plus there were lots of holes. Why does Meowth suddenly betray Team Rocket? Also while there were GOOD action scenes there were no knock your socks off scenes like the lovely endings to movies 1 2 and 3.
        However the rest was pretty well-done, Mewtwo was once again an amazing villain with tons of awesome dialogue. The animation was good, especially the ending was well-directed. There also were a few good jokes.
        Still, mediocre as a whole. 6/10.

          Closing in on the end of the season.
          Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 29 "The Light Fantastic"
          I can't imagine what 110 degree hiking feels like- Oh wait I can I did it last month in the Grand Canyon. Was still cool all things considered.
          ** More Team Rocket fun.
          Ancient Colossal Tree Tribe? New band name
          ** Another funny Team Rocket scene
          * Nurse Joy calls Ash cute- OH WAIT it's Pikachu!
          Also Misty was jealous! POKESHIPPING CONFIRMED!
          They now meet an artist named Mr. GAN GOGH. Well Pun'd my friend
          Wow Misty took the words out o my mouth
          ** The painter shaking Ash
          "The desert is hot during the day but when the sun goes down so does the temperature" Great job explaining temperature to the kids
          -- Disappointing one-sided action scene
          Closing Thoughts:
          An okay but not top episode.
          The plot was interesting in this. The gang goes to a desert where a weird light appears at points, and they try to find out the source. An interesting mystery plot.
          Action was underwhelming, however, the Team Rocket battles were surprisingly one-sided.
          Humor was solid tho, good laffs.
          Overall, 7/10.

            Only six eps until Pokemon 4Ever!
            Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 33 "Freeze Frame"
            Yay Ash's boring friend Todd is back
            ** Jigglypuff punching Todd
            Why are they walking in the snow without jackets? Won't they get hypothermia?
            * "Wouldn't that be a nice place to cuddle up with a hot coffee and a warm Nurse Joy?"
            ANIMATION EROR Pikachu's face is too smol
            ** Jessie pulling Meowth's face
            Wow Jessie and James hug for warmth, ROCKETSHIPPING confirmed!
            * Frozen Brock
            Aww Meowth looks so cute sleeping curled up on the coffee table
            Neat, a Jenny and Joy team up! Brock will be pleased.
            Woah they DID find Articuno! This wasn't a clickbait
            ** Misty's casual "That would've been bad"
            ** Jigglypuff and Pikachu floating down
            *** VERY tense action scene
            Yay Todd's gone. His one-note personality will NOT be missed by me.
            Jessie and James sleep shoulder to shoulder and hug! ROCKETSHIPPING CONFIRMED!
            Wow the To Be Continued is in the corner without the screen zooming out! That's new.
            Closing Thoughts:
            A very good one.
            The story was interesting, with Ash and the gang plus one-note Todd trying to find the legendary Articuno. An interesting high-scale premise which actually HAD Articuno instead of just being a clickbait premise.
            Action was very good, the blizzard made the Team Rocket battle especially tense.
            And humor was tops as always.
            8/10.

              Carry on my wayward son
              There'll be peace when you are done
              Lay your weary head to rest
              Don't you cry no more

              Steve Walsh of Kansas, "Carry On Wayward Son"
              Only five eps till Pokemon 4Ever!
              Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 36 "The Wayward Wobbuffet"
              ** Good chase scene
              * James' referral of Wobbuffet as a "wobbly blue blob"
              ** Wobbuffet floating in the river
              ** Wobbuffet in the windshield
              Wow the cage they made IS indestructable! They are actually competent
              ** Jessie imitating Wobbuffet
              * Dazed Wobbuffet
              ** Hostage Wobbuffet
              I LOVE the madcap humor of this episode, with Wobbuffet getting caught up in one mishap after another.
              ** Good action scene
              Woah they won't give them back the key! Pikachu could DIE. Team Rocket got a lot more evil.
              I like their new Wobba-Balloon!
              Closing Thoughts:
              A HILARIOUS episode!
              The plot was super goofy and all for the better. Team Rocket capture Pikachu again, but this time the key to get it out is in the hands of Wobbuffet, which gets lost! They have to try to find the key. Lots of madcap fun here, it kept me with a smile through the whole thing.
              The action scenes were solid, and as mentioned Wobbuffet made this episode SO funny with his goofiness. So I give this an 8.5/10.

                One more ep tonight!
                Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 37 "Sick Daze"
                ** Brock falling over
                * "Or maybe he just collapsed from exhaustion! I hear it happens to movie stars all the time!" Sick slam?
                ** Ash and Misty's spiral eyes
                Man the women's "Come closer Brock" was Creepi
                * Victreebel eating James
                ** Good action
                His second fever dream is the same as the first, he's really a man with a one-track mind
                * Brock's face eating the apples
                ** Togepi holding the sugar
                Who would just eat a stew of salt and sugar?
                Aww Pikachu looks so cute with his ears down.
                Look at Ash and Misty sleeping next to eachother. POKESHIPPING CONFIRMED!
                ** Their very wide eyes
                EROR Pikachu's cheeks are colored pink and not red
                * Jessie mocking Ash
                ** Good action
                Closing Thoughts:
                A solid episode.
                The plot was goofy fun. Brock gets sick and Ash and Misty do the jobs he does. Hilarity ensues. Simple but good.
                The action scenes were very good as always.
                Humor was strong too, I especially liked how all of Brock's fever dreams were the same.
                8/10.

                  Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 39 "The Poke Spokesman"
                  ** The guy speaking Pikachu
                  ** The gang's reactions to this shocking revelation
                  I find "recharging Pikachu" like it's a battery very funny
                  Why have they stopped finding him talking to Pikachu weird?
                  * "I'm a Pidgey, I like flying"
                  Wow that's a DARK flashback with the interpreter losing his father in a tornado.
                  I also like the sepia, nice homage to Wizard of Oz.
                  ** Very nice emotional scene
                  ** More Wobbuffet fun
                  Aww Simon shaking Pikachu's hand
                  Closing Thoughts:
                  Quite Interesting.
                  The episode was about a man named Simon who can speak Pokemon, allegedly. But can he really? A very interesting conflict drove this episode.
                  Action and direction were very nicely done this time around, some pretty nice-looking scenes.
                  And we also got good jokes and emotion. So a solid effort all around.
                  8/10

                    2 more eps before Movie!
                    Pokemon: Johto League Champions Episode 40 "Control Freak!"
                    Wow Brock's good with laptops, technology in Pokemon is modernizing
                    Wow Jessie's got power, maybe they can steal Pikachu for once?
                    ** Victreebel eating James
                    * Meowth's dancing
                    *** VERY intense scene of Pikachu trying to resist control
                    * Ash's spiral eyes
                    This is some pretty rockin' background music
                    *** Very very good action scene
                    Thank you for explaining the human hearing range. I love when the show sticks in random lessons.
                    So Brock can hear outside the range of human hearing? Maybe he can hear Georgia Brown, a singer who can allegedly sing outside that
                    ** Another solid action scene.
                    ** Ash's very big mouth.
                    Closing Thoughts:
                    An excellent episode!
                    The story was VERY interesting. Team Rocket gets ahold of a mysterious mask that causes the wearer to control all Pokemon. I love when Pokemon gets into the "mystical" stories and this was super good. Very intense sequences throughout, and top notch direction.
                    The action scenes were very top-notch, especially Pikachu trying to resist the possession, CHLLING.
                    Humor was okay as well, but not really the main focus so it's okay.
                    A highlight of Johto. 9/10.

                      Aww the kid petting Fearow, even though it's not a Cute Pokemon
                      Aww, it's a PIKACHU BALLOON!
                      ** Another funny scene with Team Rocket
                      Aww the Hoppip balloon's cute too!
                      ** "Meowth either has a burning desire or a bad eye inflammation!"
                      Man those are some pretty flimsy balloons
                      ** The race scene is very solid.
                      RIP Magmar balloon, what an ugly one
                      *** Well-directed storm scene.
                      ** Team Rocket's xs for eyes
                      Maybe they both should've got half the engine?
                      Closing Thoughts:
                      Another goodie.
                      The story was entertaining, with Ash and the gang entering a great balloon race. The premise was fast-paced, exciting, and fun.
                      Action scenes were very well-done and kept me on my feet, and we got good jokes.
                      So 8/10.

                          Time for a real gym battle ep!
                          Pokemon Master Quest Episode 5 "Machoke, Machoke Man" (GOD WHAT A BAD PUN)
                          ** More Wobbuffet fun
                          Man the gym trainer sounds a lot like Strong Bad.
                          ** Well-done gym battle scene.
                          ** Wobbuffet stealing all the food
                          ** As usual, a good gym battle scene
                          Woah, Team Rocket DIDN'T encounter Ash or even blast off! That's unique.
                          * The woman referring to her husband as Bloated
                          Closing Thoughts:
                          As typical for a gym battle ep not much to say but good, with nice action scenes. Also it was a nice shift to have Team Rocket NOT get involved. 7.5/10.

                            Pokemon Master Quest Episode 10 "Mantine Overboard!"
                            Aww Pikachu's ears drooping
                            * Classic Brock
                            The ship's called the ISS RASBERRY
                            ** Good old Wobbuffet
                            ** Pikachu trying to dive off
                            Aww Excited Pikachu
                            ** Good action scene with rockin' music
                            ** More Wobbuffet fun
                            * Misty's Psyduck being great
                            I like Mantine, it looks cute and it's cry is unexpectedly deep
                            The animation in the underwater scenes is very-well done, good atmosphere.
                            ** Good action scene
                            And a lovely final shot.
                            Closing Thoughts:
                            Decent. Not really special however.
                            The story was interesting, with the gang going down into the ocean to recover some buried treasure, the action scenes were solid, and humor was good. So 7/10.

                              Let's hope this one is better!
                              Pokemon Master Quest Episode 12 "Dueling Heroes"
                              Huh, Misty called the host of the Whirl Cup "gorgeous". Don't stop me from saying she loves Ash.
                              ** Dazzling animation for the sea spirit scene.
                              Wow one background character looks like Jessie.
                              * Professor Oak getting whooped by Bayleef.
                              Aww, Pikachu has a cute jacket!
                              Of course we had to MISS the exciting battle
                              ** Aww, Pikachu waving a fan
                              ** Good action scene as always.
                              Wow Kingdra is inflated! Some people probably liked this scene...
                              ** Very nice emotional scene.
                              I like Pikachu gasping
                              ** Another solid action scene
                              *** Misty's weird dot eyes
                              Closing Thoughts:
                              A solid gym battle ep as always. The action scenes were nice and there were some good jokes as well. Also a nice change of pace as Team Rocket were NOT involved in the plot and didn't blast off. Good. 7.5/10.

                                There was a wall of text here but I lost it.
                                Anyway Pokemon Master Quest Episode 17 "A Parent Trapped!" was very good. The story was good and kept up the high stakes set by the previous episode. The stakes set were uncharacteristically large- by the end of the ep Silver and Lugia are captured, Ash and his friends are unconscious and captured as well. There were some very good emotional scenes throughout with the kid's sadness over losing Silver, as well as one with Lugia desparately searching the ocean floor, the music added. The action scenes were generally good as always, there was also a really well-done scene with Ash and Ritchie trying to stop Lugia from creating a storm and calm it down. The animation was also very solid, especially in the underwater scenes. Not much in the way of good jokes but that wasn't really the purpose. 8/10.

                                  Time to close out the Lugia arc!
                                  Pokemon: Master Quest Episode 18 "A Promise Is A Promise"
                                  Man pretty badass speech by Professor Namba. In general I love his campiness.
                                  * Jessie's aliteration, followed by James' "Brilliant use of the letter C!"
                                  ** Meowth clawing the keyboard
                                  Man Pikachu and Sparky are kidnapped too!
                                  * Dr Namba's spiral eyes
                                  Wow Ash just got a sudden burst of strength. But he should've wacked Namba on the head with the bar.
                                  ** Good action scene as a whole.
                                  I like the conflict between the two factions of Team Rocket. Both are trying to use Lugia for their own gain!
                                  ** Butch calling James "John"
                                  * Victreebel eating James
                                  ** A solid action scene, as per usual.
                                  * Grunt's spiral eyes
                                  I just realized the Silver kid has not worn a shirt this whole time
                                  *** The entire climax! From the two separate battles between Butch/Cassidy Vs Jessie/James as well as Ash and the crew vs Namba, to Lugia's frantic destruction, to the escape from the self-destructing ship, non-stop intensity that never let up. Easily the highlight of the arc, feeling almost movie-quality!
                                  ** Plus, some funny bits with Namba and Electabuzz's spiral eyes
                                  ** And a nice emotional scene at the end.
                                  Closing Thoughts:
                                  Excellent episode!
                                  The story was very good, the Lugia arc climaxing with lots of intensity, and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
                                  The action scenes were top-notch, with tons of great and exciting moments throughout. The climax was borderline movie-quality.
                                  And we also made up for the lack of humor with some great stuff. Some nice emotional scenes as well.
                                  8.5/10.

                                    Goodbye Bulbasaur!
                                    Pokemon Master Quest Episode 21 "Bulbasaur The Ambassador!"
                                    Woah it's Ash's mom and she actually cares about him and not just Pikachu, who is cutely perched on his head.
                                    Nice, Tracey's back.
                                    ** Good ol' Wobbuffet
                                    Woah was Heracross EATING Bulbasaur.
                                    Man that's a lot of food. Bulbsaur gonna get fat.
                                    ** Nice climax scene with them pulling out the rock.
                                    Woah Bulbasaur DIED? He lets himself get crushed by a rock and then it smashes to black and we get a flashback with sad music.
                                    ** The flashback is also very well-done/emotional.
                                    Nevermind, Bulbasaur Lives.
                                    *** As a whole, the entire last five minutes were very well-done, with very nice direction and emotional heft to it.
                                    Closing Thoughts:
                                    A strong ending, but as a whole it was unfortunately dull.
                                    Premise-wise the story (Bulbasaur tries solving disputes between Pokemon) was pretty dull, and didn't really intrigue me until the very end. It felt more like a filler episode.
                                    The action was okay, but humor was flat.
                                    Overall, 6/10. A disappointment despite a good end.

                                      Pokemon Master Quest Episode 23 "For Ho-Oh The Bells Toll!" (these bad puns don't stop)
                                      Wow, nice, a legendary plot. Nice to see something more high-concept.
                                      ** Team Rocket's reactions to the broken bells.
                                      Aww look at Wobbuffet holding on to Jessie's leg
                                      Huh why does Eusine sound just like Brock
                                      *** Very cool story about Ho-Oh. I love it, as said before, when the more mythical aspects come to the fore.
                                      Aww, look at Pikachu's ears going down. I love how his ears are so expressive.
                                      Man the sleeping powder should've hit them. That way Ash and Misty would probably once again fall asleep slumped next to eachother
                                      * "We're working on WEB design" I love these terrible puns
                                      ** Team Rocket flailing around.
                                      *** Very nice, well-directed climax sequence with Suicune.
                                      Closing Thoughts:
                                      A very interesting episode.
                                      The episode was about the Crystal Bells, which signal the arrival of Ho-Oh, being stolen by Team Rocket, and this causes the wild Pokemon to rebel. A nice high concept plot, which also had some very nice animation and direction in the ending scene with Suicune.
                                      The action scenes were also very well-done as well. Not very funny but not a problem. 8/10.

                                        Had a wall of text, lost it.
                                        Pokemon Master Quest Episode 24 "Extreme Pokemon" was a good episode. The premise revolved around a sort of skateboarding (Of course it was 2003) with Pokemon race, where Ash and Gary enter. The premise was interesting, and it was nice to see Ash and Gary's playful bickering, which is always fun. The action scenes in the episode were well-done as always, the climax was intense, ending with a photo finish. We also had some good laughs as well, I loved it when Pikachu was trying to skateboard to get down with the kids. Overall, 8/10.

                                          Pokemon Master Quest Episode 27 "Dues And Don'ts"
                                          ** The enthusiastic, happy way they state how the "ups are quick and the downs are long and painful".
                                          * Wobbuffet
                                          ** More Wobbuffet fun
                                          * "I'm afraid you're not a people" plus Meowth's reaction
                                          ** Team Rocket's fight.
                                          * "If that's the democratic way i'm voting Republican" Woah Meowth the Conservative
                                          This is SUCH a funny ep so far.
                                          ** Good action scene.
                                          * Meowth's reaction to not being part of Team Rocket.
                                          I am a big fan of the trippy watercolor (I think?) backgrounds in some scenes.
                                          Woah they say "We Are Number One"! Foreshadowing.
                                          ** "Dexter"'s deadpan Pokedex description for Delibird
                                          Woah is Pikachu EVOLVING?
                                          Never mind! That's a shame. Why can't Ash just evolve his Pokemon? Raichu gets No Love.
                                          ** Good action scene.

                                          Closing Thoughts:
                                          A very wacky, fun episode.
                                          The premise was that Team Rocket find out they've been booted from the organization, and have to get back. The premise was kinda thin, but very fun, and was consistently entertaining.
                                          The action scenes were solid as always but the humor was the highlight of this episode. There were lots of great jokes throughout, and in fact it could be one of the funniest of the whole show!
                                          As a whole, a very good episode. 8/10.

                                            Pokemon Master Quest Episode 30 "Xatu The Future"
                                            ** "Wow, it's so round"
                                            Man that's a hard hole.
                                            * Classic Wobbuffet
                                            Ash should be told his fortune: "You will remain ten forever"
                                            So Xatu just predicts the weather? Why does this draw large crowds? Do they not have The Weather Channel
                                            "It's pouring rain" says the Xatu girl as No Rain falls
                                            Gotta love that clearly looping background
                                            ** More Wobbuffet fun
                                            * Jessie at the weather station
                                            * Xatu looking at Jessie's past
                                            Man Xatu girl's getting surprisingly existentialist with her speech about the future.
                                            Also shocked that 4K!DS didn't edit out the Xatu being near-death.
                                            ** Good action scene.
                                            ** Wobbuffet's very large mouth
                                            *** VERY well-done climax, the dramatic music really helped the mood.
                                            I like how she abandons being a fortune teller to...being a weather forecaster.
                                            Closing Thoughts:
                                            A great episode!
                                            The premise was very interesting. The group (plus Team Rocket) meet some girl who uses Xatu to predict the weather, and they find out that a great flood has been forecast for...tomorrow! A very high-concept and intriguing plot, as said before I love when the "mythical" aspects come to the fore. The direction in the episode was very nice too, the climax was especially well-done and captured the intensity of the situation well. The darker elements of the plot (Xatu being near death) were kinda surprising too.
                                            The action scenes were good as always.
                                            And there was also a lot of good jokes this time around, which is always nice.
                                            Overall, a highlight of Master Quest. 8.5/10.

                                              I see red
                                              And it hurts my head

                                              Geddy Lee of Rush, "Red Lenses"
                                              Time for Red Gyarados arc.
                                              Pokemon Master Quest Episode 31 "Talking Bout An Evolution"
                                              Huh why are all the Pokemon getting sick.
                                              * A nice action scene, but brief.
                                              Woah it's more Team Rocket guys. Glad it wasn't Jessie and James. I'm sick of that Motto.
                                              Why does Dragonite sound like a dog?
                                              ** Good old Wobbuffet
                                              Huh what language is that on the computer monitors? Looks like Greek or something
                                              ** More Wobbuffet fun
                                              Pikachu looks cute when it's angry!
                                              ** Good, tense action sequence.
                                              Huh if Pikachu had been hit with that ray it could have become a Raichu! Shame it didn't. Ash should finally just evolve his Pokes.
                                              Closing Thoughts:
                                              Fine episode.
                                              The premise was very interesting, with the gang meeting a group of Team Rocket members who have invented a way to forcefully evolve Pokemon using a laser beam. First victim is a Magikarp, forcefully evolved into a Gyarados. Very nice movie-ish plot.
                                              Action and humor were typical for the show.
                                              Overall 7.5/10.

                                                Pokemon Master Quest Episode 32 "Rage Of Innocence" (Man this title's SO COOL)
                                                ** Meowth looking dead
                                                * More Wobbuffet fun
                                                Apparently Lance is "soon to be an X-man" Crossover?
                                                ** Good action sequence
                                                * Wobbuffet's anguished scream
                                                "This Pokemon can just barely fly above the ground!" I love how they state that like it's exciting
                                                ** Very nice action scene
                                                * The spiral eyes
                                                *** Man, the climax to this episode is intense! Lots of great battling throughout.
                                                ** More intensity with them trying to stop Gyarados.
                                                *** The ending of the episode was REALLY well-done, from Lance's speech ("I'll cure your pain, your anger" etc), to the very well-done direction and intensity throughout. Bravo!
                                                Closing Thoughts:
                                                Great episode!
                                                The story was very good. Ash and the gang try to stop the Team Rocket group and rescue the red Gyarados, while also trying to calm it down and stop it from causing any damage. It was very intense and a suitable finale to the mini-arc.
                                                The action this time was the highlight to the episode. The fight scenes were super-well done throughout, especially the final one, which was movie-quality.
                                                Humor wasn't a highlight. But it wasn't trying to be.
                                                Overall, an 8.5/10.

                                                  Pokemon Master Quest Episode 34 "Nice Pryce Baby!"
                                                  ** Misty's sick slam
                                                  * More Wobbuffet fun
                                                  ** Good action scene.
                                                  * Dewgong's swirly eyes
                                                  Woah they're going to make ice cream out of ice Pokemon? that's screwed up.
                                                  ** Meowth's weird eyes
                                                  * Jessie lashing out at Wobbuffet
                                                  Woah that was a super-intense cliffhanger.
                                                  ** Cyndaquil's swirly eyes
                                                  * Pikachu slipping on the ice
                                                  --- LAME ending. So Pryce just forfeits the match and gives Ash the victory? Pathetic! They were building up for a great climax.
                                                  ** Good action scene until that point though.
                                                  Closing Thoughts:
                                                  A typical gym battle episode, with good action and some nice humor as well. However, the pathetic ending weighs it down. 7/10.

                                                    doesn't really matter to me

                                                    Freddie Mercury of Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody"
                                                    Time for another ep.
                                                    Pokemon Master Quest Episode 35 "Whichever Way The Wind Blows"
                                                    Aww the Oddish eating looks cute.
                                                    * Pikachu's swirly eyes
                                                    Vileplume is a rare Pokemon that is cuter than it's pre-evolved form.
                                                    ** Ash's bizarre reaction to the fighting.
                                                    ** Team Rocket's faces when they see the Vileplume/Bellossom fight
                                                    * And their swirly eyes afterwards
                                                    Jessie and James hug! ROCKETSHIPPING!
                                                    The boss won't care for grass Pokemon huh? That's kinda racist, or in this case, type-ist
                                                    Huh how did Team Rocket recover so fast?
                                                    ** Fan of Meowth's imagination
                                                    Jessie and James hug again, ROCKETSHIPPING!
                                                    Aww look at the Oddish playing with Togepi.
                                                    CRITICAL flaw: Steven says "The Vileplume are evolving already" Vileplume doesn't evolve.
                                                    * As usual storm scene is nicely directed.
                                                    ** Team Rocket's odd ideas for schemes, and Ash's reactions.
                                                    ** Team Rocket's swirly eyes
                                                    "And i'm surprised Meowth knew what an identity crisis was!" Sick slam
                                                    ** Meowth speaking Pokemon language
                                                    ** And a nice action scene closes things out.
                                                    Closing Thoughts:
                                                    Good episode. Nothing extraordinary however.
                                                    The story was interesting. The gang finds it's way to a plain where sun and leaf stone fragments fly in the wind, which means depending on the wind direction the Gloom evolve into either Vileplume or Bellossom, which causes fighting between the two sides. The premise was quite enjoyable.
                                                    There was also quite a few good jokes in the episode. Action wasn't really the focus here.
                                                    Overall, a 7.5/10.
