Episode #39 - Showdown at Dark City


Here's the review of today's episode, "Showdown at Dark City."

The episode begins with Ash & crew arriving at Dark City, 
which appears to be a ghost town. The trio are greeted by three children who 
promptly throw rocks at them, because they are Pokemon Trainers, and 
therefore bad. A local restaurant owner informs the group as to what's going 
on in the town. There are two local Pokemon gyms that are both fighting for 
control (anyone see Last Man Standing?). The gym that wins will be an 
Official Pokemon Gym. The Kaz Gym and the Yaz Gym, apparently, train their 
Pokemon for fighting and violence. The Yaz Gym leader used Scyther, who is 
extremely cool, and the Kaz Gym leader used Electabuzz. The others used 
various Pokemon in the battle, which more or less ended as a tie. 
Ash & crew get "recruited" by the Yaz Gym when Brock falls 
for the beautiful "recruiter." The Yaz leader decided to see how tough they 
were by unleashing Scyther on them. Well, Scyther accidentally sliced 
Pikachu's ketchup bottle (which Pikachu took from the restaurant), and got 
ketchup splattered in his eyes. Scyther went berzerk, and the Yaz leader 
captured him back into the Pokeball. The leader, amazed at the group's 
"power," immediately welcomes them in, but Ash will have none of it. He 
tries to leave, and is beaten up by the rest of the Yaz Gym. 
Well, Team Rocket (YES) has teamed up with the Kaz Gym, and 
are ready for battle against the Yaz Gym once again. Ash & crew learns that 
both Scyther and Electabuzz become enraged once they see the color red, so 
they set up a trap for the next "Gang War."
I won't spoil it for you, but I will say that the ending is 
great. The battle scenes are really great. I was pleased with the amount of 
Pokemon that made an appearance in this episode, and what happens to Team 
Rocket at the end is absolutely fantastic. Scott's grade : A.

I hope you like it. Let me know if you want more, as I tape 
every episode (I'm NOT getting up at 7:30 am to watch it). Thanks!
