Did Misty's "goodbye" flashback get the best of you? Or did Ash and Dawn's final D/P "high-five" make you teary? I'm not embarrassed to say that both scenes made me tear up a little. Although May and Max's departure also counts, I personally thought the other two were better. What do you guys think?
1. Try not to focus this on shipping, or who had the better bond with Ash. This is about the episode in general- music, flashbacks, dialogue, Pokemon interactions, etc.
2. No bashing the other episodes/characters! Focus on the one you chose.
3. This does not have to be an official departure episode- it could be one where the characters have split up for a short time (i.e. right before Battle Frontier, Brock's short absence in the Orange League, a Pokemon's release or giveaway to another trainer). It doesn't necessarily have to be the very last episode of that arc (although the majority obviously are).
