An interesting episode between fairies and dragon types, but good
25 July 2015 | by intomyworld44See all my reviews

The episode starts in Laverre City and ash will someday battle gym leader Valerie to earn another badge. I liked the part where Bagon and Treecko participated in an exciting double battle, but the major down side is that some first four generations pokemon like hoppip are demoted further to unimportant characters or even mentions by the writers. It has also one of the sweetest story lines i have ever sawn in my reviews. The final battle begins with Bagon trying to defeat Spritzee, but was simply defeated in the act of fairy power against dragons. In conclusion, The heroes eat at the Pokemon Center, and will defeat gym leader Valerie sometime.

Story: 5/5 Pleasure: 3/5 Emotion: 3/5 Challenging: 2/5 Innovation: 4/5 Artistic Merit: 5/5 Lauded Critically: 2/5

Other Notes: Between the fairy and dragon type pokemon, this was a beautiful episode for it's time. There are a couple of likable characters to balance the plot and pokemon battles alike. This episode is a must see for dragon and fairy type fans.
