Better Eight Than Never
Appropriate title, considering it took so long to get to
this episode. And what an awesome episode it was!! The battle between Ash
and Clair was great, Ash really used a lot of strategy in that one. I loved
getting the chance to see Snorlax again (since I never saw the Orange Islands
episodes where he used it) and, of course, Charizard. I liked how Ash used
Snorlax's ability to absorb attacks as endurance to wear Kingdra out, and
especially when he had Charizard use Flamethrower repeatedly to evaporate
the water in the pool. And that combined Flamethrower and Seismic Toss (with
Dragonair's Dragon Rage) was incredible. Team Rocket tried again to steal
the Dragon Fang but never got anywhere close. They only had a very minor
part in the episode, almost seemed like they were thrown in just for the sake
of making an appearance. They didn't ruin anything though.
I loved this quote:
(TR was digging a tunnel, hoping to come up near the Dragon Fang.)
Jessie: We're getting so close to the Dragon Fang I can almost smell it!
Meowth: Heh heh...that was me.
