The Scheme Team (409)

The parting ways scenes at the start were good and emotional, but not super sappy. Everything at Team Rocket's headquarters was hilarious. Ash's battle with Agatha was excellent and had some cool moves and animation. All the build up for the Battle Frontier was good, and Team Rocket's appearance at the end was great.
 
What I loved about this episode was Ash's battle against Agatha and the introduction of the Battle Frontier and its arc. I also enjoyed seeing Misty make a return near the end of the episode and I think Max returned at the end as well if I'm not mistaken.

Agatha and Scott's voices were very good. Agatha is my favorite Kanto Elite Four member, so I'm glad she had an awesome battle with Ash.

Seeing Satoshi pass through Tokiwa City again confused me, because based on Kanto's geography, he should have reached Masara Town before Tokiwa City, but I guess it was simply a way to get him to meet Kikuko and Enishida. I appreciated the match between Gangar and Pikachu however, as well as when Satoshi saw Kasumi again at his house.

Why was Scott even needed in this episode? We get to hear Professor Oak explain what the BF is later on to Ash anyway, so we didn't need Scott to bring it up.

Enishida set up the whole Battle Frontier challenge if I remember right, so he needed to make an appearance during this arc eventually. This episode seemed like the right time given Satoshi's match with Kikuko, which impressed Enishida and made him take a liking to Satoshi.

Sucks how long we had to wait just to finally see Agatha and for an E4 member, she seemed weaker than I expected when she used Gengar. I thought she'd win in an instant.

What an incredible episode! I am so hyped for the rest of this new saga now. I was kinda dreading the battle frontier but this episode has made it look awesome.

It was great to see Jessie, James and Meowth visiting the headquaters and running into Cassidy and Butch again. I was wondering what had happened to those two so it was good to see them again. I feel like the boss's voice has changed a lot though.

It was really sad when they all parted ways and said good bye.

It was amazing seeing Misty at the end and I was surprised to see Max show up at the end!

Kikuko wasn't weak from my viewpoint. Rather, it was a testament to Satoshi's development and growth throughout the Houen saga that he and Pikachu were even able to keep up with Gangar for a few minutes before being defeated. Anyone else would've struggled worse than they did.

Cassidy's new VA was good although Butch sounded off to me for some reason. Agatha's voice was great, and Scott's was good too, although I'm not sure if it fits perfectly.

I wonder why we even received a quick glimpse of Yamato and Kosaburou in this episode, seeing as how we wouldn't see them again until later in the Battle Frontier arc in a completely unrelated subplot from the one taking place here.
 
Max and May's small goodbye was good and even though I grew to like Max and May, they do represent the Hoenn region so they should have been left there. Jessie and James visiting TR headquarters was very fun also and too bad Giovanni didn't get to say much. Nice to see Viridian City again and Agatha finally appearing six years late.
