An all round aweful episode. Between the confusing Goukazaru vs Goukazaru battle to the overpowering battle of Satoshi's Pikachu vs Oba's Goukazaru showed bad form for the series as a whole. Satoshi was offered a position as a Battle Frontier brain, his Pikachu should have been able to defeat Oba's Goukazaru after his Buizel and Goukazaru managed to damage it.
The backstory was the only highlight in this episode as well as the similarities between Satoshi and Denji.
Well, I agree with Sunain in that the battle, though "flashy", didn`t make much sense from a battling ability point of view. I did however, enjoy how they chose to draw various parallels bewteen Satoshii and Denzi, my favourite part probably being when Satoshi tells Pikachu not to give up, and Volkner sees himself in him. Hopefully the battle against Volkner will prove to be much less one-sided. It`s hard to imagine Goukazaru being more powerful than a Regice.

Just before the Chiisaki Mono played the dub music sounds like Vivaldi's 4 seasons. It's definitely not battle music and kind of kills the epicness of the scene. The also dub left out the MAIN reason Volkner wasn't battling anymore.
