"This is another great video! If you "Gotta Catch 'Em All" Catch this! Ash takes his Primeape to the Pokemon Fighting Tournament. As usual, Brock falls in love with a pretty girl at first sight. Later, the team enter Gringy City, where Pikachu gets a cold and an admirer, Magnamite. But the Grimers clog the electricity! If Ash can't get the power back on, the Pokemon at the Pokemon center will die! Next they journey to the mountains, where some Diglett are ruining the constrution of a dam! Many Pokemon trainers, encluding that old goat Gary, try to stop them, but for some reason, thier Pokemon won't battle the Diglett! Ash, Misty, and Brock end up learning a valuble lesson about destroying the forests. And, of course, Team Rocket gets "Blasted off agaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin! ""
Not a great first choice, but a great DVD nonetheless...

"Pokemon fans new to the DVD side of things should probably start off with Poke Friends or Thundershock, but for what its worth, this is still a great trio of episodes from Pokemon's 'golden' era.The first episode on the DVD features Pokemon like Primeape and Hitmonchan in a fighting tournament - very cool episode and virtually the only episode in the series to feature some of these Pokemon. The Grimer/Magnemite episode is just kinda there...nothing too major aside from Ash catching a Muk. The third episode is better than it sounds, featuring the Diglett and Dugtrio, as well as Team Rocket's Pokemon meeting their evolution.I have most of the released Pokemon DVDs...like I said, I wouldn't reccomend this as the first choice, but you won't be dissapointed in it either way."
The appearence of Hitmonlee was absolutely superb.

"As ash wanders through the good and the bad yet he always ends up on the right side of the fence. I can't explain my feel for the movie because it was so emotional(jk). I recommend this video for all ages."
It was Great! Hitmonchan was cool!

"This movie started to get exciting when the tournament began and primeape faced machop the rest of the movie was cool too! I highly recommend it to all Pokemon fans!"
"I love Pokemon, and "Pokemon Fighting Tournament"is one of my favorite videos.It contains 3 episodes,first in"The Punchy Pokemon"Ash enters Primeape in a tournament for fighting pokemon,next in "Sparks Fly For Magnamite" a group of Grimer and Muk cause a power shortage in Grindgy City and it up to Ash and his friends to save the sick pokemon at the pokemon center,then in "Dig Those Digglet" Ash and his friends run into his rival Gary,but theres no time for a pokemon battle they have to solve a problem with Digglet and Dugtrio first, and Team Rocket try to evolve Ekans and Koffings. I recomend this video to all Pokemon fans."
