    Ok, so I don't know if this is news to anyone or not but in Aloe's gym (in the anime) challengers must pick two Pokemon to battle with before the battle starts and both trainers are free to switch as they please as mentioned by Kidachi. Dent comments that 'each gym has their own way of doing things'.

    But it's still made for a Japanese audience. She still wouldn't have to speak English. If you want her to speak English, you're free to wait for the English dub.

    English count: 4.

    I didn't say her speaking English in the Japanese dub would make it "international" the Tajirian made up symbol language and lack of Japanese food and culture is what makes it.

    I wanted Ash/Satoshi to win. I think a good hero can win and develop/grow stronger as a character at the same time. I know losing helps you grow stronger, but if everyone only grew stronger by losing first, well, that wouldn't be fun to me.

    I did like seeing Mijumaru/Oshawott and Pokabu/Tepig battle. If they do learn new moves soon, I will be happy.

    Ash gets a few Gym losses each arc, if he beat each Gym leader the first try there would be no excitement.

    I know it'd be less exciting, but I'm not the type to get upset seeing Ash win all the time, as long as the Suspension of Disbelief is not too big. And personally, I'd rather see him lose to the later Gym leaders. Seems like it's more common to have him lose to the early ones, like Brock, Lt. Surge, Whitney, Brawly, Roark, Gardenia, Aloe, etc...

    Pokemon's main target audience is in JAPAN, and the main language that they speak in JAPAN is JAPANESE, so why would people expect Aloe to speak english only? It doesn't make sense...

    Is that really it though?

    From what I can recall its probably because Aloe doesn't speak any "English" at all that I would think people would have a problem with.

    A Japanese "made" character in a Japanese show only speaking English is way too unlikely to ever happen. And I cannot possibly see any reason why people would think that.

    Not speaking any English on the other hand is at least more reasonable to be confused on. But full on English with no Japanese words at all, no. First off Aloe wouldn't be able to speak in full English because of the differences between Japanese and English, and I would find it lazy if Aloe just said the moves and Pokemon in their Japanese names, while everything else was in English. Secondly why would ANYONE expect her to speak only in English? What purpose would that serve? I mean sure Dento speaks some English, but expecting Aloe or any character to speak full English (in the Japanese) is just too unreasonable.

    I can't help but think some of you are misunderstanding something here.

    I finally caught up with Best Wishes!. This episode was...OK, I thought. Count me in with those who were annoyed with Satoshi being caught off-guard by Mean Look after it had been used against him back on Suzuran Island. I'm also bored with Pokabu and Mijumaru. However, I do really like Aloe's personality and battle style.

    The part I liked the most, oddly enough, was the parts at the end with Satoshi going to Don George to train for the rematch. The Battle Clubs have seemed pretty useless to me so far since everything they've been used for so far can just as easily be done anywhere else, but now we see that they can also be used as gyms (lowercase g) where pokemon can be trained. And the owner, Don George, actually gets to do something by acting as a sort of personal trainer. I finally feel like Battle Clubs have a use in this show, and I can't wait to see the actual training Don George puts Satoshi through.

    I hope the training in BW 016 isn't too rushed, but since they're cramming the rematch into the episode as well, it probably will be :/

    That's actually pretty fucking hilarious. Even the writers are getting sick of figuring out boring bullshit for the trio to do episode after episode. Just write them out of the show already and be done with it.

    It's no more strange than seeing all the Japanese people in this show speaking English in the dub.

    Unlike Pochama, Mijumaru hasn't suffered from being a douche, which it deserves to be.

    Satoshi really should start to try to discipline it already. If it can't be arsed to initially fight in a gym battle, then its a risk.

    Now that I finally know what Aloe is saying, she seems quite different. I mean, she seemed like a manipulative, spiteful jerk who revels in the pain and frustration of others. But now that I know what she is saying, she seems so sweet, kind and smart. She's really cool.

    Communication is so interesting when you look at all the different aspects.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.
