Ah! Team Rocket is acting like normal humans again. What madness is this?
And Yamask knows Haze!
There needs to be a sign near water: WATCH OUT FOR RUNNING BELS.
Way to dex the Pokémon instead of saving Satoshi's life, Dento and Iris...
Desumasu's "first" battle, it also has Smokescreen. Reminds me of Matadogasu. Oh, and awesome motto again.
Edit: Oops, it's indeed Haze. In that case, it reminds me of Habunake!
Wow was it obvious this episode was airing out of place. Checking to see where the next gym is, Desumasu's first battle and dexing, the obvious premiere of the jetpacks... aside from the very end it felt like I was watching an older episode. Still, there were tons of of laughs, and I really enjoyed it.
I kinda wonder if Junki Takegami has a thing for tentacle rape though. XD
They must have had to make the last half of that scene at the end from scratch, so you’ve got to give them props for trying to make this one fit in.
…but then again, you’ve got Ash and the gang being surprised to see Deathmas and having to ‘dex scan it so….yeah. Guess they couldn’t be arsed with that part :P
Lol @ Bel almost being dragged into the water by Pururil, to the point where Ash and Iris needed to catch her…and having that big, silly grin on her face the whole time!
I do think she should have captured it in the end, as it’s definitely a ‘mon that suits her, appearance and personality wise. Ahh well.
The "looking up a pokemon we've already seen several times before" part was the only thing that screamed "aired out of order!" to me. The rest of the episode was edited fairly well.
And yay, the Rocket trio was actually tolerable this time.
I also liked how Satoshi mentioned that he actually has been fishing before.
The episode itself was good, despite a couple of errors.
- Ash scanning James's Desumasu.
- Ash seeming like he sees Dento's special rod for the first time.
- Dento being as fabulous as always and getting screentime
- Iris getting a yellow card for catching Pokémon with her hands. (lol)
- I liked it when Pururiru grabbed the trio and Pikachu was forced to shock them. xD
- Belle almost killing people with her fishing rod.
- Belle didn't do much, nor did she catch anything. :|
- Ash should have sent out his other Pokémon to help him.
I'm surprised though how Belle left at the end of the episode. Wasn't she supposed to be with them in the next one, or did the animators edit that part?
Yamask has never used Haze since then though.
Glad to see the Rockets as the old Rockets for once. Too bad they left pretty quickly, though.
That's presumably one of the reasons this episode was delayed as long as it was. They probably also re-recorded the lines at the beginning to have everyone ask how much farther it is until they reach Raimon City; I think it's safe to assume that the dialogue in the pre-3/11 version was something like "Where's the next gym?" "Raimon City!" "OK, let's go there."I'm surprised though how Belle left at the end of the episode. Wasn't she supposed to be with them in the next one, or did the animators edit that part?
And then there's that.Originally Posted by Adamant
The editors really weren't as thorough as they could have been.
Well, the actors didn't sound like they were bored to death when reading their lines, for one.
I'm glad Bianca didn't get the Frillish, I don't think it would've been a nice catch for her and she probably would've used it before.
And I know they trued there best to make this into a city that isn't Castelia, but I mean come on, that looks exactly like it, except for the rivers through it.
