Morrison looks just like Misty only fatter. I didn't like him and I think it's sad that they had to introduce two League rivals in the end.
I dislike how there was a dub edit and the beginning, replacing the rice ball with a sandwich in the dub. Though I was glad to see that Ash had 8 badges and Morrison had only 7. It just goes to show that Ash is stronger than Morrison.
I will compliment his Beldum though, for an unevolved Pokemon, it was stronger than I would've though. 4/10
This episode was ok... It was cool to see Morrison for the 1st time in this episode. It was cool to see Beldum for the 1st time. Morrison is hilarious to listen to and watch as a rival for Ash. They battle over almost everything they do. Morrison is a perfect rival for Ash.
Ash finally got a rival, but really late in the AG series. Morrison was a goofy rival, but the rivalry between him and Ash was fun. Morrison and Ash had a lot of funny moments in this episode, I liked Morrison's reaction when Ash showed him his badges. It's really funny when Ash and Morrison were chasing after Team Rocket's balloon, I LOL'd when both of them bit the Meowth balloons 'ears'.
Overall this was a good introduction episode, but I didn't like how 4kids pointlessly edited the Riceballs into Sadwitches this episode. Seriously, what's up with 4kids changing Riceballs into Sandwitches or Donuts? It's really stupid in my opinion.
It's interesting how Morrison's English voice sounded like Goku's(DBZ) English voice, I guess it was Goku's VA voiced Morrison in this episode.
Hmmm I didn't like how 4kids edited Morrison's rice ball into a sandwich, but Morrison himself was a funny character. I was impressed by his Beldum and I liked how it and Pikachu teamed up against Team Rocket.
I also loved this episode. I was laughing when Munchlax became bloated after eating that pink Pokeblock. I was also laughing at the part where May said "He's like a bottomless pit." That was pretty funny.
If you ignore the blatent breaking of the laws of physics, this was another interesting episode. Morrison is a hilarious and very welcome rival. It was good to see Ash get a rival before the Hoenn League and this is the most of Ash we get to see in this block of episodes.
Gonbe munching on Masamune's and the Rocket-dan's onigiri was hilarious, and even though I wasn't a huge fan of Masamune in general, he was the closest thing to a rival that Satoshi had in the Houen saga. I actually enjoyed that Masamune had a Dumbber who could match Pikachu, and the hot spring scene made me smile.
