    Missed the first five minutes of this episode.

    Pikachu and Oshawott high fiving is totes adorable.

    Add Clay's Palpitoad to the list of Pokémon-into-Snivy's-weird-kinky-shit.

    Damn, tantrum much, Clay?

    Ash references his Pokémon Master goal. You still think that's gonna happen after all those years? Aww, sweetie, you're cute.

    Younger Clay looks kinda creepy.

    Blah, blah, blah, Roggenrola takes a ridiculous amount of hits and evolves just like Sewaddle did way back when.

    Yikes, Boldore had a near miss with Excadrill's claws there. That woulda hurt.

    The Quake Badge appears on screen AND gets mentioned by name, in case anyone was wondering.

    Well, I'll be! If it isn't 'Pokémon Dare Da?' again!

    Yeah, the return of dare da? was a real surprise. Almost as surprising as Satoshi winning a battle in this series using *gasp* a pokemon who has a type advantage against its opponent. What is this world coming to?

    Even more amazing, he used Pokémon with type advantages twice in the same battle. And those Pokémon won. Mind = blown.

    The gym battle was good! I really liked how the anime portrayed Yacon.

    That new ending...



    Overall, it was a good episode with some nice animation.

    Please keep all discussion of the new ending theme to this thread. This thread is to talk about BW 061 and nothing else.

    I thought this episode would be a bore since the comic spoiled the whole thing, but it was actually a really fun battle. Mijumaru's technique reminded me a lot of the counter shield, and Yacon as a kid was so cute. <3

    But my favorite part was definitely the return of dare da. They even had the same music! ;_;

    So, this will annoy people.

    The attack that Satoshi's Dangoro takes head on before it evolves is Horn Drill. It's a one-hit KO move, and Yacon and Satoshi even say as much, but...Dangoro is still able to take it head-on. And then evolve.

    Doesn't Roggenrola have the Sturdy ability? I am sure that Pokemon with that ability can't be taken out by One-Hit KO moves, so it would make sense for it to come out of it unscathed and then evolve.

    Didn't watch the episode but looking at the screencaps, I'm disappointed that they use normal stock art for the Dare Da featured Pokémon now. It was cool in Kanto when they drew an exclusive portrait of the featured Pokémon in that sequence... Though I think they started using stock art in Johto already.

    inb4Hitomi reaction to little Yacon. XD

    Really good gym battle. Easily the best one this season, even with the Boldore stuff. I liked Yacon alot in this episode, and his little flashback was nice too. Nice to see Ash win the type advantage...twice even, shame he hasn't really used his head like this much up until this point. Snivy's attract actually working was nice too, it been a while.

    I liked when the elevator descended to the giant doors in the game. It's nice to see an allusion to that. So, Osha has spinny junk now, too, eh? It will be interesting to see how that develops. He loses to Palpitoad=it will now live under the shadow of Ash's own Palpitoad. It was bound to happen, but I didn't expect it to be established in the middle of the saga. Snivy pwns the junk out of something with her feminine wiles again. Yeah, Sturdy would've prevented Horn Drill from working, but I still don't think Roggenrola or it's evo should've lasted through so much punishment. Oh well, the anime always seems to think pokemon (or at least Ash's pokemon) are made of iron.

    Way better episode than the previous Gym battle. Also, fantabulous animation, I must say.
    Cutest moment.


    Dangoro's evolution almost looked like a digivolution, so dramatic.

    Sturdy nullyfies those type of moves.
