      I must admit, this was a pretty interesting episode. Ursula's Plusle and Minun meant business! It's just too bad that Jesselina lost to them, especially with that Silver Wind/Poison Tail combo and the Sonic Boom/Haze combo.

      Plusle and Minun attacks look like fireworks when they land. Strong attacks with style!

      It looked more like Ursula was torturing her opponents with the moves.

      That move Encore is pretty impressive! Only using the last attack over and over until the effect wears out, unthinkable!

      "Diamond Dandruff" strikes again! I thought Dawn was going to quit for sure by freaking out.

      Even though she pulled off that Flame Ice move successfully, I still think she got lucky. Plusle and Minun had great attacks. She was saved by the clock. I kind of wanted Ursula to win, if not Jesselina.

      9.5/10

      We can make a Pokémon Concert! All we need is Jigglypuff to sing...wait, that would be a bad idea because we would all fall asleep, Jigglypuff would get mad and then it would draw on all of our faces...yeah, let's not do that!

        Watching this episode made me think about one thing:

        How horrible the name Flame Ice is.

          Wow, Encore was a really great move for contests. Was that the first time we've seen it in the anime?

            I think so.

            Overall a pretty good episode. Good comeback by Dawn. About time she got that fifth ribbon.

            Ursula really should have been kicked out early, her Plusle and Minun only have electric attacks. She should have lost points for continuously using spark and charge beam on Mammoswine. Also her excuse that you only won because of the time, well isn't that the whole point? Some coordinator she turned out to be.

              ^ It would've been mega cool if she beat Dawn at least once before heading into the Grand Festival. Poor girl can't beat her.

                Yeah, you do have a point there. The name is so obvious. Dawn clearly didn't think through the name for this Contest technique. What about Fiery Glacier, or Frozen Fire? Anything but Flame Ice!

                  ^ Flame Ice only takes up two mouth flaps though so it must make it easier for the dubbers.

                    Flame Ice is pretty lame, but her victory is right in Dues Ex Machina territory ("You can do it", "I believe in you", "Your strength is from the heart" speeches kinda give it that feel).

                    But I'd much rather have my Scrappy win than the Libby.

                    I hate Ursula. So very, very much.
                    She's a character designed so that nobody loves her, honestly.

                    She's only ever done one redeeming thing, and that's not happening for another 6-10 weeks in the US, so I'll keep my mouth shut. :#

                    - lol the art if funny when Jessie loses
                    - "That's it! Time!" I'm getting the feeling they didn't translate that well
                    - I've just noticed Ursula has wide hips, it's nice to see girl anime characters that aren't sticks apart from their chests
                    - Gotta love the RBY Champion theme
                    - lol, Dawn looked like Brock when she crouched down

                    Music kept:

                    All :D

                        This was a pretty good contest. The cool animation only made it better. I'm glad TPCi kept the soundtrack as well. Looking forward to the Grand Festival!
