For those of you who thought Magmar used Water Pulse, it didn't. I examined the episode and saw that it was Rhydon who used the water attack Surf. Yes, it is possible for Rhydon to learn Surf (for some reason). Magmar used the move Protect right before so it would not be hurt by the attack. A possible reference to how Surf now hurts your partner in a double battle. It just appeared that Magmar initiated the attack. --☆ケンジガール 03:59, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
After Rhydon activated Lightningrod to absorb Pikachu's Thunderbolt, Paul yells at Ash for not knowing. It would have been better if Ash told Paul about dealing with a Rhydon before (not specifically Blaine's) and Pikachu's electric attacks was able to hurt it. This would have been better than arguing about it. PattyMan 19:26, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Does Giant really need COTD his page?
Researcher and Elite Trainer
Can someone clarify if the Researcher and Elite Trainer Ash and Paul faced in the tournament was a Scientist and Ace Trainer? Pokemon.com CCs of the dub episode referred to them as Researcher and Elite Trainer and there was no mention in the episode of whether or not they were a Scientist and Ace Trainer.
