This episode was cool. performance in the appeal round was really good. Squirtle vs Crobat was an awesome battle. Wobbuffet vs Ariados was very odd and funny. It was cool to see Needle Arm used.
I'm still fairly astonished, incidentally, that so many people who profess to loathe the entire Pokemon anime and do nothing but whine and complain over the stupidest things every week are still watching the show, let alone participating in the fandom. Are they masochists or something? Colour me baffled.
I would have made Harley the winner by default after seeing how creepy that was when Ariados got Squirtle to the top of the ceiling on the stage and did that creepy spider-pose.
Poor Harley. First May defeated him with a Bulbasaur and now he gets beaten by a Squirtle that had literally no formal training. And people wonder why Harley hates May?
