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.
