"Another entry into the Johto Champions collection comes Johto League Champions: Volume 3. Seven episodes are featured on this disc as follows:
#415 - Mountain Time: After Pikachu is swiped by Team Rocket, Ash teams up with a young mountain ranger in training and his Ledian to save him.
#416 - Wobbu-Palooza!: A peaceful village is having their annual Wobbuffet celebration, but thugs from another town are determined to ruin the event! To everyone's surprise, even Team Rocket offers to help out!#417 - Imitation Confrontation: Ash and friends run into Duplica again, who has caught another Ditto, which stays it's size even when copying a huge Pokemon!
#418 - The Trouble with Snubbull: The kids find Madam Muchmoney searching for her beloved Snubbull, who was last seen chewing on Meowth's tail.
#419 - Ariados, Amigos: Ash happens upon an ninja training ground, where he find Koga's sister Aya training with her Ariados.
#420 - Wings 'N' Things: A wreckless Yanma is causing trouble for a town
#421 - The Grass Route: Ash enters Bulbasaur into a Grass Pokemon tournament.
Of all these episodes, only Wobbu-Palooza! and Imitation Confrontation stand out; the others are merely filler episodes following the 'trainer of the day' formula. Also, since Pioneer is no longer handling the DVD production, the video quality has taken a hit. There is some noticeable grain and it only looks marginally better than VHS. The only improvement over previous volumes of the Johto Champions series is that the menus are easier to navigate. Only hard core Pokemon fans need apply for this volume."
