My favorite episode ATM is Mean with Envy. May is getting ready to make her last ditch effort to get her last ribbon needed to join the Grand Festival. Starting with her Skitty running off, battling team Rocket with the Help from a great looking Houndoom, and lots of different pokemon in action. That's a big reason I like the anime is seeing my pokemon in action. It's adds character IMO. Mr.Sukizo President of the pokemon fan club as a judge. Good to see him. Mays leafstorm + Blizzard makes some frozen chunks of ice and Skitty used double slap to destroy them. Skitty was so excited to destroy them. It fit her active personality. Ending with the final 4 matchup. Sets up another good episode.
