    Did anyone else notice Kenyan's terrible, terrible handwriting?

    Speaking of writing, I'm sick to death of seeing that fucking made-up language everywhere. Like, Luke isn't even allowed to have the letters "REC" on his video display? What the hell?

    I was also surprised that the episode actually bothered to a) name all the participants, and b) come up with some great character designs. Usually the periphery characters get generic designs because they figured nobody would care, but this time they went all out. Sanshiro, in particular, had a design that looked like it had a lot of thought put into it.

    And as others have pointed out, Cabernet's "My new vintage" was great :P

    Similar things happen in real life. Like, why do we have a New York City and a New York State? Why are there so many cities named "Paris" in the U.S.? etc. etc.

    I like how it already had the swirly eyes - this show's shorthand for "unconscious" - and yet was still able to drag itself out from under Tsunbear. I don't think we've ever seen a pokemon move while "unable to battle" like that before.

    There's nothing wrong with him using "kimi." He's a kid, not a Japanese 101 textbook.

    "Anata" would be way too stiff and formal.

    To be fair, the Dent fishing episode wasn't supposed to air when it did. We would have only gotten four episodes in a row instead of five if it wasn't for the earthquake in March. Still too much, yeah, but it wouldn't have been *as* bad.

    Thank god that tiring rut they were in during the previous 4 BW eps is over, just being shoe-horned into eps again for no reason.
    I'm glad they're finally going to start getting shoved to the background again. While watching them fetch briefcases and checking out maps is boring as hell, it at least doesn't drag down the entire episode like their more recent appearances have. The less of the BW Rocket trio we see, the better.

    I really liked this episode. It was fun and light and the fight wasn't long but was energetic and fun to watch.
    Zorua was really great. Iris and Langley's rivalry stole the whole episode whilst Ash and Trip were boring as usual.
    But I really liked that Trip is losing his screentime. To me, he was a character gone wrong. Generic Paul that did not work.
    And it's interesting to wonder if losing to Cilan will refresh his storyline.

    What did Trip say when Ash won the match?

    I wouldn't know anything about place names in America, but...really? Wow. That's really silly. Regardless, just because it happens in reality doesn't mean it has to happen in fiction: why be confusing when you don't have to be? I personally consider the OneSteveLimit trope an acceptable break from reality.

    I like the "The writers just wanted to troll us" explanation. Much more amusing.

    I love how almost every character in that picture has the exact same facial expression.

    I don't, since "troll" is a terrible internet word which users deserve a swift punch to the face.


    On another note...
    Takemitsu, is he supposed to be some sort of parody of someone? He kind of seems like one, and he also goes through the trouble of announcing his name despite not really needing to.
    So.

    It's because the episodes were renumbered after TR vs TP was delayed, with the episode we just saw being BW039, so about three more weeks before she will appear.

    It was alright though it's not what I was expecting. Disappointed they're showing M13 over the next episode and I'm even more pissed since Serebii states the after the 2nd part, there's gonna be another week delay for Part 3 for a damn Naruto special. WTF?
    Now WHY would they show Movie 13 instead of the next episode, that's what bothers me, and if I remember right (I havent been catching up with Japan on Naruto, so I have no idea what is going on), Naruto Shippuden is on a filler arc, making it a double whammy for both fanbases.

    The question is, what does Giovanni want, and does it hint at the long awaited appearance of Team Plasma? We have until September to find out, since we have to wait two weeks for the next episode, and after that, ANOTHER two weeks for the episode after that.

    Agreed, that and "pony" are probably the most overused words on the internet.

    I think the article on Bulbapedia that said that Masaaki Iwane revealed on his blog that she was supposed to appear in "Everyone Gathers! Don Battle!"

    I honestly don't know why they'd show the Zoroark movie over BW 40 and I really wanted to see Cilan defeat Trip this week. As for that damn Naruto special, the movie screwed everything up. I guess because the movie runs over Naruto's time slot, I guess they have to make up for it cause of the movie and it pisses me off that they put it over what should be the proper date for the Iris vs. Kenyan episode, right after the episode where Trip finally loses.

    They always air the previous year's movie right before the new one comes out.

    He didn't, some guy just lied about such a statement being made and no one bothered to fact check.
    So.

    Nobody's mentioned Tsunbear's "What the heck just happened?" reaction after it fell on Bachul. That was cute.

    Not that I understand craps worth about the talk with my lack of japanese skills, but...

    Langley, you are a sad excuse of a trainer. :P Which makes Iris, even with her strongest pokemon, even worse. Joltik was just way too awesome.


    Oh well, the episode was absolutely amazing.

    I hope Trip was watching Ash's match. Imagine his face when he finds out Ash caught the very same species of Pokemon he himself failed to catch.
