    Seriously, why does she have to be African American just because she is black?
    I wasn't planning on touching this subject, but my theory is that people thought that because of the Isshu region being American-based (sorta), anyway. I can understand why people would make the assumption. Why people would expect her to speak all English in a show that's aimed at Japanese kids is beyond me, unless they were expecting some random English (like Dento's "It's Tasting Time" stuff).

    Engrish, in Pokémon, has been mostly used by "fabulous" characters, such as Dent, Melissa and Harley. Aloe is not "fabulous".

    Dropping random words in Engrish only would've made her seem more foreign, really. xD

    This pretty much. Isshu is another country ( it is, right? ^^") but japanese is still the spoken language there.

    Aloe (who isn't portayed as someone who's NOT from Isshu) talks just like Iris, Professor Araragi and other people from the Isshu region because she is probably from this region.
    She isn't an obvious forgeiner like Melissa or Matis either.


    Anyway, I was kinda disappointed how Pokabu lost so quickly. I like the little guy, but it keeps losing all the time. Maybe the much needed new move ( seriously...ember??) will help it in the future.

    Pokabu has little to no personality, so I don't care if it loses. He's the least interesting fire starter in Ash's lineup yet.

    And I really hope Oshawott's excessive screentime is because it'll become the next Charizard/Sceptile/Infernape of this particular series. He needs to be Ash's first fully evolved water pokemon.

    He most likely meant the water starter.

    I said what I said because Kingler is overlooked most of the time.

    I can't even.

    Because no Japanese people are ever black, right?


    The Team Rocket scene in this episode was pretty awesome, I think. I like how they're feeding us little bits of their plot instead of throwing it all out at once.

    Personally I always found the "no switching' rule very stupid. They don't do it in the games. So why did they do it in the anime?

    Ash, I think, uses some gratuitous English, mostly for attacks. of course, his Contest apparel was pretty sweet.

    Because switching is for chumps, yo. Only real tough, manly Leaders keep from switching. It's a self-imposed rule. And we all know how tough and manly Gardenia is!

    Wait a minute...
