    A pretty nice episode. Nice to see a Jirachi again.

    That song at the end, that was from the sixth movie, wasn't it? It sounded vaguely familiar.

    I couldn't hear it all that well, but did Jirachi speak at the end?

    It was a pretty nice episode. I think Jirachi said something before falling asleep, but I couldn't hear it.

    Yeah, that's Chiisaki Mono, the ending theme of the 6th movie.

    I couldn't hear well either, but I think it didn't talk, but rather, mouthed something. Might've been arigatou, but considering the sound quality I watched the episode with, it's probably something entirely different XD

    Yeah, that's what I assumed, too. Didn't hear Jirachi say anything, just mouthing 'thank you'.

    I don't know if Jirachi really speak at the end, but through the episode is saying Jiii-raa-chiii.

    There's any pokemon from the main cast who have appeared.

    And the ghost doesn't appear in this episode unlike some poster said. They doesn't appear int he next.

    Possibly we know what happen to the ghost in two days.

    I want to start with XY as soon as is possible.

    I have unpopular opinions: I prefer an older character returning but it isn't from the original trio. I was one of the few who liked both DP and BW. And I think that TR shouldn't leave in the anime.

    Jiraachi just mouthed "arigatou." It didn't actually speak.

    This week's episode was way better than last week's pile of shit. I liked that we actually got to see Jirachi battle for a bit at the end since it spent most of its movie just kind of playing around before it got captured by Butler.

    I'm kind of surprised they used Chiisaki Mono since Best Wishes! hasn't been using anything older than the Giratina movie music, I think. Is this maybe a sign that they're going to start dipping into their back catalogue more often?

    I wonder if they kept Jirachi silent at the end since his actress notably died on Tanabata, the festival Jirachi was based on, and it was her last role.

    Shit man, I don't know if I can watch this episode...Chiisaki Mono always makes me tear up. The best Movie Song, imo, and even the dub kept it...mostly...in tact.

    Couldn't agree more. Glad they used it here.

    Didn't they use the "Celebi's Revival" BGM from the fourth movie in BW052? And also the "Seting off" original series BGM played a couple of episodes ago.
    It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.

    Da! is on a roll, I didn't think I would like any of this episode at all, I legit didn't think I would. I thought Jirachi's debut would completely be a typical TR thief plot line in disguise judging from the summaries. I was surprised, this episode wasn't groundbreaking and it had a pretty basic idea but it was a good episode. I enjoyed the animation of Jirachi's Swift and Healing Wish, if it could have busted out of TR's little glass cage with Psychic I'm not sure why it didn't do that from the start. What really made the episode was hearing Chiisaki Mono at the end. I was expecting at least one piece of music from the Jirachi movie but I didn't foresee it being vocal. Getting it vocally was a whammy right in the emotions. The farewell scene and the music mingled together so well that it definitely brought a satisfying close to the episode and Jirachi going back to its 1,000 year sleep. The ending scene and music saved this episode well. I remember the instrumental vividly playing while Pikachu took on Oba's Goukazaru. Seriously, that ending scene made this episode worth watching in a way.

    If the writers are going to force TR into every episode, I wish these Rocket battles at least had more essence and competence than a small struggle and Pikachu/Kibago Dragon Rage-Thunderbolting/Electro Balling them away every episode in a speedy blast off. I also wish they would change TR's motto animation a few times for Da! already, we've had the rose animation for ages know. They have quite a few they can cycle through.

    I'm not able to check right *now*, but I'm pretty sure what they used there was the remix from the Zorro'ark movie.

    And also the "Seting off" original series BGM played a couple of episodes ago.
    Do you remember which episode? I can't imagine something like that escaping my notice.

    They incapacitated both Pikachu and Kibago very early in the battle by having Kojirou's Morobareru paralyze them. I'm not sure how that's not "competent."

    Agreed. Though I think what they're doing now is treating the Rocket-Dan mottos like those transformation sequences from one of those magical girl shows and will probably keep recycling the same animation until the end of the series.
