    Default “Coming Full — Festival Circle!” Review Thread

    It’s the semi-final round of the Sinnoh Grand Festival, and things are heating up with a battle between Zoey and Nando; and… Dawn and ‘Jessilina’!

    pm2: You're starting to annoy me a little with that message in every thread.

    Anyway, this was a quite decent episode. It even felt like a long episode despite being the usual 22 minutes long. The Nando vs. Zoey battle was definitely a marvelous sight to see. However, the Jessilina vs. Dawn battle was a bit rushed, and Jessilina scared me at the end.

    Next Week - The Final Round!

    He has a point, though; there is absolutely no reason for you to be starting these Review Threads as early as you do. Posting threads hours before the episode premieres accomplishes nothing. So cut it out.

    As for the episode itself...this is the episode I'll always remember as the writers' big "screw you" to Rocket-Dan fans everywhere. So, so disappointing.

    Hey! If Mijumaru wants to post review threads early then there is no problem with that. People do that to start the discussions off quickly. So, please do not berate this user for that and the same goes for the other user as well.

    Yeah, I guess you're right. Though he did say the exact thing a minute to when the episode start in the Playing the Performance Encore! thread.

    In case you haven't noticed, the user above you is a mod here.

    So then, why did Jessilina have the same reaction as in the Daybreak Contest?

    It's nice to see you're defending me, but he's not bossing me around, he knows what's right and wrong.

    But anyway, it really disappoints me that we're already at the final round of the Grand Festival; it's nice, but at the same time sad seeing it coming and going!

    I loved the Nando v Zoey battle. There was a lot of awesome combos. But the Jessie battle was kind of... pathetic. I did like the end when Jessie told Dawn not to lose.

    To me, it seems that one of the most annoying things of the episode is that all the twerps talked about in the Zoey vs. Nando battle was Nando's music combinations. It seems like they just started talking about them in the Grand Festival, and to be honest, it was really annoying. Seeing this episode, I wonder how much they're going to talk about Nando's music in DP183. They shouldn't talk about the music too much because the League's about strength, not about beauty.

    My favorite move of the battle was when Nando used Bug Buzz to destroy the Shadow Ball. I love it when they use simple moves like that in different, interesting ways.

    Really? I see it as more of a gift to the Rocket-Dan fans. It's the cumulation of everything that's happened since Houen. Jessie doesn't cheat, she wins fairly, she made the Top 4, held her own pretty well, and didn't react the way you thought she would after she lost! I thought that part at the end with Dawn was a great fake out. Yeah, the battle was short, but Jessie isn't exactly a big enough character to warrant a longer battle.

    The Zoey vs. Nando stuff was pretty cool, but since I don't really care for either character it was hard to get too excited.

    Sad to think next week is the end of Contests.

    "A legend in my own mind." Stop being so obvious, dubbers. Wow, Brock pays attention to what Nando uses. Oh, Lopunny, how could I forget that? But Dawn, you have used your opponent's moves against them before. It is a good contest battle, though. That shot of Dawn and Zoey meeting in the hallway is just as intense as ever. So that was the reason. I should've known. She was so upset over her own loss to Dawn... Next, the GF, and perhaps Pokemon Contests as a whole, come to an end...

    "Jessie isn't a big enough character to warrant a longer battle?" Are you serious? She's a main character and has been doing Pokemon Contests for three regions now. And unlike, say, Nando, she actually has interactions with Dawn.

    As far as I'm concerned, the main Coordinators of the Sinnoh region are Dawn, Zoey, and Jessie.

    I also don't give two craps about Zoey vs. Nando. Sooooo much screentime wasted on their battle.
