My favorite scene from here was when Marowak left his trainer because it showed that he had lost his respect for him. I liked when Jessie stole the badges too.
Why? Pikachu was clearly much stronger, so his win was justified.
I meant how Pikachu's Thunder Shock attack was able to do damage and how it defeated Otoshi's Marowak despite ground type's immunity to electric type attacks. ^^;
This was OS though, so the writers just weren't consistent with type immunities. :x
Yea but it was still frustrating to see Pikachu win against Marowak so easily. I would've preferred if Ash had used his Squirtle to win against Marowak instead cuz at least he had water type attacks ha ha.
Frankly, if we're basing who should've won in terms of type advantage, then Ash's Bulbasaur should've beaten Otoshi's Marowak, yet he lost.
Tbh looking back, I'm not really sure why Jessie wanted Otoshi's Gym badges. Like, did she ever even mention wanting to enter the League before?
I don't think so and perhaps she only decided to use them herself cuz the chance presented itself. I mean she never had an opportunity to own eight badges, so she likely decided to compete on the spur of the moment.
That would've been a waste anyway since she was weak. Otoshi's flashbacks also confused me since he was shown winning the Marsh Badge while fighting a Hitmonlee.

We also saw a Strike at the Sekichiku City Gym in Saizou's flashback, which Kyou didn't own as far as we know. Regarding why a Sawamular was used at the Yamabuki City Gym in the flashback, perhaps it was a reference to Yamabuki City's Fighting Dojo, which was once a Gym.
This episode shows why Jessie is the worst character of the anime imo as she was incredibly unbearable in this episode. I really didn't care for the episode's plot either.
Dogasu recently explained why James's TCG cards in this episode got edited in the dub, yet I remember James using similar cards in DP.
