Nice to see Sakaki battling Red. Though they did change quite a lot from the game...

The battle with Giovanni was nice. Red should have prepared some Water Pokemon for this battle haha.

Loved the battle against Giovanni, he has always been my favourite Kanto gym leader. Man, I really wish this was a full series so we could see these battles fully developed instead of rushed because of time...

He used 3 Pokemon that had a type advantage over Ground Types:

Victreebel - Grass Type
Kabutops - Water Type
Hitmonlee - Fighting Type

Yet the only one that put a challenge besides Charizard was Hitmonlee. Well for Red from here on out comes Victory Road and Elite Four. Let's see how much Red improves.

I find it kind of weird that Giovanni became that moved by the battle when he easily beat the first few.

LOL. Red's Charizard uses the moves that are taught by the two Black Belts, and the guy in the Pewter Museum.

I was also thinking, how are they gonna battle inside the room of the Silph Co? They wrecked the building. Didn't disappoint.

Also, they quite deviated the story of Giovanni.

I really love the nostalgia, remembering storming through the Silph Co building like a badass!

Wish that the battle would have been longer instead of three one-hit KOs. T_T Kind of lame IMO. But otherwise, enjoyable episode!

Rikiya Koyama voiced Giovanni? That's so awesome! I immediately recognized his voice as well. Giovanni was so ruthless at the beginning. Fighting in the Silph Co. building was pretty funny though, breaking furniture and even parts of the building. xD I laughed so hard when the Fighting Dojo Master cried 'Choose whichever one you like!' Wow, Giovanni even got some character development. The battle was so fun to watch even if they were rushing straight to Red's Charizard. Why can't this be the actual ongoing Pokemon anime series? D:

They gave Giovanni quite a personality. The battle in the building was interesting, then there was the gym battle itself.

Seeing "#uck" in Pokemon is hilarious. Darned subs..lol.

Cheapest Rhydon and Nidoqueen ever; KUNG FU FIGH-TING! Looks like they have more than four moves? Ah well, that's okay. Nothing that bugs me.

I think the animation took a slight drop.

You're not the only one! When he spoke right away...I knew who it was. That voice is soo good!

Either way, this episode was really good, and I did not expect to see a Pokemon battle inside of an office! Awesome stuff.

I still love it even though they skipped parts.
We get to see Erika, Koga, Sabrina, Blaine, and Giovanni!

There's a new species!

Red vs Giovanni, part 1. Giovanni was badass. Nidoqueen was OP during that time.
Red vs Giovanni, part 2. Red was badass, in the end. Charizard defeated Rhydon.

Red's becoming more badass.
Lapras joins Red's team.
Red's current lineup: Victreebel, Kabutops, Snorlax, Jolteon, Hitmonlee, and Charizard.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

Because a bad guy voiced by Koyama is always a badass, even when he has an average design. Well done, I.G.

I can't help but wonder how confusing this show might be to anyone who isn't particularly familiar with Pokemon or the original games already. I suppose no one who fits that description would want to watch this... but still! You're introduced to the main villain, then witness that villain's defeat and redemption all in one episode!

Again, each episode just makes me wish for a full series. I would have loved to see an entire episode dedicated to Red storming the Silph building, the little that we did see was pretty cool. Giovanni has always been one of my favorite characters from the franchise. His change of heart was a bit laughable, and would have had a lot more impact if given the time to understand him a bit more. We don't have that time, so I'll have to settle for what we got.

Red's collected all of the badges in three episodes... what will he accomplish in the finale?

Fight was pretty intense. As always, Red outnumbers the enemy pokemon with his own.

Ew what did they do to Giovanni? Yuck, yuck, yuck and YUCK!

"Too late to start anew" *barf*

The first half he was the awesome villain I love, the second half.... No, just no!
Really disappointed.
The battle was nice though.

2/5


Hmm. *Looks at episode poll* Apparently everyone LOVES the new Giovanni then...

Wow, this episode certainly was an improvement! Giovanni actually having a personality? That was a nice twist. Not to mention the final battle at the Gym was very well done.

Now I'm excited.

How the hell does a Jolteon get beat by a thunderbolt, I don't care how strong that Rhyhorn is, a thunderbolt does not knock out a Jolteon in one hit and furthermore that Rhyhorn was freaking DOMINANT!

I loved that they showed Red getting Lapras!! Endgame time!!!

Nice, they remembered the fighting dojo.

Giovanni sees the gym as just a cover? In that case, one has to wonder why he still prances around in a black suit with a big red 'R' on it while he's "undercover".

I liked this episode though. This is the first time I have ever cared about Giovanni as a character.

Red really made some progress in the span of 3 episodes, from throwing a pokeball at a young kid's pokemon to defeating the leader of Team Rocket and earning his last badge
