I really enjoyed this epsiode. Ever snice I watched the Japanese version, I wanted to watch it in English. I really Masaume dub voice. It really suits him. And I loved when Ash and him battle it out, only to find out they tied on almost everything. XD And Pikachu and Beldum's battle was pretty cool. The thing that got me kinda of shocked is when a sandwich is rolling on the hill. A sandwich?! What? I remember in the Japanese version a rice ball rolled over. I was saying here we go again. 4Kids and thier edits. Will they ever learn? But anyway...I really loved this epsiode. It was funny and awesome at the same time. 10/10
It took me a bit to get used to Morrison, but he's already jumped ahead of Harley in the likeability factor for me. He and Ash had lots of funny moments in this episode, and I thought it was interesting that they made Morrison left-handed too. The scene where they work together to charge after Team Rocket was hilarious. I liked Meowth's reaction when Ash and Morrison bit the balloon's "ears" too.
I wasn't too thrilled about meeting Morrison, but I'm looking forward to seeing him again, much more than Harley. Overall, 9/10.
Having seen only the first half of the episode, i must say Morrison is a pretty interesting addition to the character lineup. If he has a Metagross by the Hoenn league finals, I'll be a very happy person. Beldum is one of the worst newer pokemon, and this episode proves it, but Metang and Metagross are quite powerful if trained correctly. Should make for an interesting Hoenn League championship now.
IMO, this is more of those random episodes. Though it wasnt bad, i thought that i was a tad over the hill. But i suppose its been a while since Ash last had a rival. Although, if Beldum was continually using Take Down, wouldnt it take some damage from recoil? IMO the only comic part of it would be when Morisson shows he has 7 badges, then Ash shows him his 8 badges, then Morisson has a short panic attack. What disappoints me is that he gained his 7 badges with 1 pokemon that knows only 1 attack.
Yet again, another awesome episode!! I think Morrison's dub voice is excellent, it suits his character. Beldum only being able to use Take Down was kind of dumb, but oh well. Pikachu should have won that battle. I also found it stupid that they had a grinder roll down the hill then just put a rice ball in. Really, what the hell's the big deal with Japanese culture that they hate?
I didn't watch the episode, but by reading the summary and looking at the pics, I think the episode is kinda pitiful because of Ash & Morrison trying to take on Team Rocket without any of their Pokemon. It's quite similar to Team Rocket taking on Tyranitar in A Poached Ego.
I thought Morrison should have been introduced early in AG So he could battle Ash frequently, but they just had to introduce him in late AG. I thought he was funny and the rivalry between him and Ash was pretty nice.
Did anyone notice that Morrison appears to be an homage to Jimsy from the 1979 anime "Future Boy Conan?" The scene where he and Ash race down the hill is right out of a scene with Conan and Jimsy from Future Boy Conan.
