    @PDL
    It looks more like a rectangular bucket of sand to me ><

    Speaking of moves, what was that orange ball of energy fired by the boss Ishizumai? I am thinking Power Gem, but Ishizumai can't learn that. Maybe Hidden Power?



    Awesome Shell Break BTW!

    Why isn't Ash training at least 1 of his Pokemon this episode? He just lay on the table waiting for food. Unsure if his complaining of not getting food yet has stopped or not, but at least a small tidbit of him training would suffice. Seems his loss to Shooti wasn't enough motivation.

    I love the different meals Dent cooks. Most of the time, Brock cooks some stew so this was pretty refreshing to see. Iris making medicine was another sight to see. This episode focuses more on the sidekicks which is a nice welcome.

    It was pretty brave for Ishizumai to get its home back by himself with a little help from the field, seem to be Ash's specials. Slash, Scissor Cross, Withdraw/Protect (if it carries the rock), Dig and Shell Break. Unsure of what the 3rd Ishizumai's flame orb attack was.
    I think it will take another loss for Ash's training to kick in. Maybe the second gym battle? Or a new rival?
    Ash fan. Multi Ash shipper =]

    Deep down, I had a hunch that Dent would catch Ishizumai from watching the preview a couple weeks ago. I'm glad that it actually happened.

    Also, Shell break was awesome to see animated.

    This means Dento could capture possibly any Pokemon in Isshu, since there's no theme at all.

    I hope he doesn't just stay at 3 Pokemon the entire arc like Brock did in DP.

    Ah Dento gets screentime and a capture. Very nice. And an unexpected capture as well.

    Whoa, how could I not mention those badass Rocket Gang scenes? Slipping through the security lasers (....forgot what they were called) gets a big thumbs-up from me!

    When I first read about Shell Break I thought the anime will show the Pokemon actually breaking its shell (like Ishizumai's rock) or removing it (Abagoura's shell looks like a backpack to me...). I hope an Abagoura in the anime will use it in the future <3

    @Eitaro
    I guess from Ishizumai's moveset, that's the best bet. I was expecting Rock Wrecker to be more physical, and I was kinda hoping for a large boulder lol. Thanks :)

    You just won't shut up about Johto will you? I'm beginning to think it was actually your favorite region, since you think about it so much. (Take the hint.)

    He didn't mean what Dento's used, he meant the boss.

    It looks like Ishizumai has 5 moves instead of 4. Does this mean they have stopped limiting pokemon to 4?

    But they were in no way essential to the plot. The writers could have taken them out of the episode and it wouldn't have changed the narrative structure of it.

    And again, I never said they were important to the plot in every episode, just that they never were disconnected from everything else to such a degree as they are now before.
    They aren't disconnected from everything, but from Ash. They are connected to the Team Rocket agenda, that is what keeps them going.

    And again, unless we actually see their plot being furthered, this isn't buildup. Seeing them steal some info off a computer isn't buildup.
    Isn't it? So far their appearances have led to something in the following episodes. Right now they are building up to the meteorite plot.

    That's just pointless time wasting in order to force in an appearance.
    And that's different from what happened before how? I mean, how many episodes have ended with Team Rocket interacting with the twerps in the last 2 minutes, attack with a mecha, blasting off and that was it. That served the exact same purpose, ie give them an appearance. Except that was even more of a waste of time since it didn't lead anywhere, rarely contributed to anything.

    The arguments you're using apply to both old and new Team Rocket, so be consequent with yourself at least.

    I actually hope he and Iris don't catch that many pokemon. Without an actual quest, 3 pokémon is more than enough. That being said, they need to be developped a lot more than Brock's pokémon were. 99% of Croagunk's appearances had nothing to do with developping Croagunk as a character. Sudowoodoo was done by DP014 and Happiny nothing really happened with Happiny until the second to last DP episode.

    Same number of pokémon as Brock but a whole lot more screentime for them is the way to go in my opinion.

    I can see Iris getting a full team by BW's end, or at least having more, "secret" Pokemon like the mole that she already has.

    I agree Dento may only stay at 3 pokemon. I never really pegged this as a capture for him.

    We're not outta the water yet, we have at least another 3 years, and we're going for badge 2 by next month. Who knows where they're going with it, but we'll see in the long run.

I have a hard time getting excited over stuff this series, and thats entirely due to the fact that they play the exact same music to the exact same situation in every episode. Talk about something that gets old.

    When watching new D/P episodes, a notably big part of the new-episode-excitement was the music played, because, you know, they had four generations of game music and a dozen of movie soundtracks to choose from. The way the music is handled nowadays is totally a step in the wrong direction.
