    Pikachu got absolutely destroyed by Flint's Infernape, but I like the fact that it kept on fighting and made Volkner want to battle Ash. I think they should have made the Infernape vs Infernape battle a little more intense, that could have been a great battle, but maybe they're saving that for the league. This episode was pretty cool.

    This episode proves that each episode this season is getting more awesome one by one. Meeting Flint was surely amazing too and I loved his character in the anime.

    Ash wanting to get a Gym Battle though was saddening. When they were giving out Beacon Badges w/o the battle. When Ash was trying to get in but the robot security thing was holding him back I was laughing my butt off. Ash you're so stupid. xD

    When we met Volkner, his voice was so depressing of course, plus I thought I needed to turn up my TV volume. Sad I know. But great character as well. Both his and Flint's backstory from battling was interesting too. Especially about the Poacher. The whole episode made a twist when we found out that cafe guy, also trying to cheer Volkner up during Ash and Flints battle, was that poacher. I was all OMG he was the poacher?!

    Flint VS Ash however was a wow moment. Very powerful indeed of that Infernape, even knocking out Ash's. Pikachu did a good job, even with so many attacks and Im glad to see Volkner got through to realizing about the battling he loved seeing Ash is like him. The music really helped here.

    Now Im so excited for next weeks episode!

    This was a pretty good episode. Nice to see Flint & Volkner appear. The main thing I liked about this episode was the battle and also the backstory of Flint & Volkner was very interesting. It was a smart move to change Volkner's hair color so he doesn't resemble the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, from Naruto.
    10/10

    I loved Flint's and Volkner's voices. Flint sweeping Ash was expected but I still enjoyed the battle anyway. I also thought having the poacher becoming their friend and trying to cheer up Volkner was a nice touch.

    I enjoyed the voices of Flint and Volkner. They fit them really well. The battle was very awesome and I'm glad they showed Pikachu as a tough little electric rat. He took all those hits like a man!

    The poacher thing was a nice twist. I was all "OMG I thought he was the poacher but OMG! He's the poacher! WTF OMG WTF OMG! That's amazing!". That made my morning. Good job writers!

    Sunnyshore City looks like a beautiful city to live in considered that it's solar powered. I was so excited to see Mina- I mean Volkner showing up as well as Elite Four Member Flint. His Infernape never broke a sweat from using Flare Blitz as if it's on steroids, but then again the user who uses Flare Blitz takes little damage when being used on Pokemon with little HP.

    Flint’s Infernape was a beast in battle. It completely owned Ash Buizel.

    It was a good episode. We're introduced to Volkner and Flint and we get a battle between Ash and Flint. Flint's Infernape is really strong, it beat Ash's pokemon just like that. Now that the battle has made Volkner interested in battles again, he's challenging Ash to a Gym Battle.

    This episode was pretty good. I found it odd that the 8th badge was free. It was awesome to see Flare Blitz. It surprised me that the ex-poacher was there throughout Ash's battle. I have to disagree with this episode title. After all, it was not Flint who sparked the fire, it was Ash.

    Well now we know why Barry thought this Sunyshore gym was so amazing. I guess Barry didn't really care that he didn't have to battle for a badge. I doubt he could have sparked Volkner's interest anyway, but I wonder how Palmer would feel if he found out his son took a gym badge without earning it.

    It's interesting to know that Paul wouldn't accept a gym badge without earning it. It seems he has a lot of integrity as a trainer.

    It was so cute when Raichu jumped into Flint's arms. I don't think any of Gary's Pokemon would be that friendly towards Ash.

    Ash vs Flint was really one sided, but Flint is an Elite 4 member so it's acceptable. It's too bad Infernape lost his first battle after evolution (again), but at lease he lost to a powerful opponent. Pikachu really showed it's strength and I'm not even going to mention Buizel's performance.

    It was a bit surprising that the old man was the poacher and that he changed his ways due to his battle with little Flint and little Volkner.

    It was a good episode. 8/10

    The voice actor for Volkner is Eli James.
    The voice actor for Flint is none other than Tom Wayland (Reggie, Aaron).
    Upon the voice acting, how well did they sound? I missed this episode alongside with two others. (will watch online)

    I love Flint's and Volkner's voices, they fit perfectly. The ep was good, Flint's Infernape was definitely beast in the anime while in the game it was so easy to beat.
    Totally agree!

    Man, that Infernape was definately a giagantic beast. Loved the episode (it was a bit better in Japanese in terms of dialogues though, but dub one was also good :D).
    I enjoyed :)

    BogleDominic Crazy Anime I love Pokemon!

    Is it just me or the animation look more darker colorful?

    Volkner and Flint are great so does Flint's Infernape! Volkner is cute in his 10 years old.
    And Sunyshore City is well ace!

    I didn't expect great things from Flint or Volkner's voice, knowing the history with voice actors, but it was actually a really good performance. Though young!Volkner didn't sound so awesome... Also, the battle was most definitely one-sided. But Flint managed to be spontaneous without being egotistic, and even though Ash got almost totally whooped they both handled it pretty well. Though the battle did serve its purpose for the most part. Yay Volkner's self-confidence!

    Great episode here! 10 out of 10.
    The voices for flint and volkner were great!

    Flint's infernape is a beast!

    I totally did not see that the guy who ran the tea shop was the former poacher that flint and volkner beat and caused hi to quit.. did not expect that at all.
     
  19. Did anyone notice that the song Make a Wish From Jirachi wish maker was in the episode?

    Also Ash should have known better than to use Buizel. Buizel got creamed in the battle with Byron. He should release Buizel, or give it back to dawn, who gives it to professor rowan. He should use corphish.
