    I know some people thought Nando inclusion in DP was largely pointless, and maybe so, but he gave us some pretty good battles, and I'll miss him.

    Dammit, now I really wanna know what Octillery snacks really taste like!
    Probably like Takoyaki. If this was Kanto TR probably would be selling Yakisoba, Takoyaki, Onigiri, Dango, and Curry but, for the sake of International audiences we get Pokemon substitues.

    This episode was rushed. The Staraptor battle boring, Quilava did nothing really, the only one I like was Heracross's and it's Sleep Talk. TR selling food as a B-Plot wasn't all that funny to me. Heracross is getting a little to much screen time for me. It was in Johto, one of the Battle Frontier, and Sinnoh League it's a cool Poke don't get me wrong but, would've had hurt to give Quilava center stage for this battle? This Darkrai trainer sounds interesting. Here we are with Nando(Forgot his JNP name) debuting his Armaldo a fossil Pokemon and Ash/Satoshi's new Quilava this episode could've been better but, this episode really left me with a bad taste in my mouth for the reserves. If your gonna bring back reserves give them interesting battles at least. God Focus Punch one of the most overused moves in Poke history appears again. Once again Conway/Kouhei is a abosulute creep. 6/10

    Naoshi.

    Anyways, I greatly enjoyed Barry this time. Some of the dialogue he had was simply great writing (note: I'm not talking VA, I'm talking script).

    The one thing I found weird were the eyes of the people in the audience. It looked like they were drugged up and forced to be there. I liked the episode nevertheless, though it could've done without the TR subplot.

    Well, I can actually see them airing episodes on those two days because the marathons usually start around 9 a.m. However, we don't know what Cartoon Network can pull off.

    I actually kind of liked this episode when I first saw it back in July, but looking at it again it was really meh. Nando had such a great show in the GF. The Quilava thing people have already bee over, so I won't bother talking about it.

    "Somebody should get a fine." I'm sure a lot of people feel that way about the legendary trainer as well. I think we will learn what his dub name is soon. This was a good battle to start things out with. I don't care what anyone says. To be continued...

    I'm disappointed that Quilava only got like a 30 second battle and it ended in a tie but other than that the episode was pretty good. I wish we could of seen a little bit of Paul and Conway's battles since they showed Barry with Empoleon for a short time.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    Great episode with an action-packed, exciting battle! I enjoyed every minute to the fullest!

    A fantastic start of the Sinnoh League, which I've already been waiting for!

    Also, I'm already looking forward to the continuation of this great league and the battle next week where one of the best Pokemon ever is going to shine!

    Queen Cynthia, did you see what you wanted? Did you see the part when Ash recalled his tough Gym Battles and each side's signature Pokémon?

    Great episode, I think.
    I actually quite amazed when Ash's ordered Heracross to use the Sleep Talk. Picking a Sleep Talked Heracross is a really nice counter to Nando's Sing.
    Conway was also cool for stalking Dawn and making her to be cuter. :p
    Team Rocket did not create any mess this time. Also good.

    Besides that, yeah, I'm also kinda disappointed for Quilava and Staraptor. But still, I observed the good things in this episode more.
    Time is not money.
