This episode was ok... It was cool to see the Flashback reminders of Ash and May's battles. I felt this episode wasn't really neccessary. The Flashback clips helped me to finally decide what my favorite moments for Ash and May were.
Even tho this was a recap episode, I liked seeing it in Japanese cuz I got to hear the original voices of the gym leaders and such. I wish 4kids had dubbed this just for the sake of being equal with the Japanese version of the anime. ^^
For a standard clip show episode, which I can only assume was developed as a way of stalling for time, this one was well put together. I didn't mind seeing flashbacks of when Satoshi won his Houen badges or when Haruka won ribbons, although the fact that this episode only showed 30 seconds of new footage is vexing.
