It was a good episode. There was some action, and the humor was good. Also, it was great to see May and Max holding each other for support. I found it unrealistic that Ash would actually try to climb the rope, but hey, he's him.
-My biggest concern: Did... did they change the Commander's names? I heard Shelly for Team Aqua and what sounded like Tabitha for Team Magma. Anyone with "A Three Team Scheme" handy, could you check what was originally used for their Titles? I swear I remember it as "Harland" for our Magma Male.
EDIT: Cyber got to it first!
