    So he did scan pokemons he already owns.... oh well.


    Would have been very bad episode without Dent.

    I usually overate episodes, but i simply cannot do it this time, i haven't seen an episode this boring in sometime, the plot was weak, and half of the episode was wasted by 2 fools imitating team rockets motto and The music was ear gouging at best. I simply cannot stand the best wishes soundtrack anymore, i really hope tpci replaces the entire score and ash dexing buizel and corphish.. Why??? i know it's for the younger audience, but still...

    2/10

    Cilan saved this episode from being a disaster.

    He was the one who identified them, though. xP The writers just wanted him to scan them for the kids' sake.

    Overall, a really good episode! Ash and Dento were such ninjas, I loved them. And the battle was freakin' awesome, probably a tie with Ash & Brock's battle against TR when it comes to the best Tag Battle ever.

    All the more reason to give a Pokedex to the COTDs - or at least have them or Iris ask what's that and have him show them specifically - they've done that in a few episodes and one line of dialogue makes Ash look far smarter than having him scan a Pokemon he owns. At the end Ash also had a chance to assure Cilan that they were good Pokemon for them to catch by mentioning his own, but it sounded to me like he didn't even do that.

    I also don't like how Ash seemed to be stunned by the combination moves - they really should have figured something out with Unfezant and Pansage, instead of Unfezant just being used to make Pansage's Solar Beam airborne without any real combination to it.

    Still, no point reading anything in to this episode, I suppose it's good that Cilan actually used his connoisseur skills for once - though both of them catching water Pokemon doesn't seem like a good way of making multiple unique combinations.

    After 3 awesome episodes (The Rocket-2 Parter and the Crossdressing episode), we get this episode.

    Oh well, guess it's better then nothing. Atleast we had some really cool Unfezant screentime, a really good battle and a Subway Masters cameo.

    But...I really didn't like the characters. They really irritated me.

    Atleast they won't come back.

    Also come to think of it - Cilan was the only one with a male voice actor today, not counting Pokémon.

    Well, unfortanly without another traveling partner with a pokedex, this is what happens. :( The only reason that this rarely happened in AG and DP because the girls would have scanned the pokemon that ash seen..

    And dang I missed the episode, just have to wait till it's dubbed then.

    Did I hear that right, Dent is their super aniki? XD

    The battle was visually impressive, definitely one of the best we've had in a while. The second half of the episode was pretty dull though, I don't know how them catching two water types is supposed to improve their combinations, but whatever. Seemed like Dent just wanted an excuse to whip out his rod.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the episode. The whole thing did start to get a little annoying though, especially the Subway Master's loss part. I mean, seriously? However, the tag battle was not that bad, but I was hoping for Yanappu/Ken to get a new move, but whatever.

    The last scene, where they spotted Swanna and Gamagaru, I thought there would be more than just those two wild Pokemon appearing and Dent thinking about the twins.

    Stating the obvious... Dento! <3

    I enjoyed this episode more than I thought I would from the preview! The battle was entertaining to watch, as was Dent and Satoshi learning to battle together the same way, though I wish they had been more creative than just copying the twins. Also still disappointed that Stunfisk and Palpitoad weren't used here....would have been a great opportunity to see them shine :<

    And apparently Dent's sparkles are ~contageous~

    The subway twins loss part was just a dream of the twins :D

    Most of the time, I can understand why they are helping people. This time, I don't understand. This entire thing seemed utterly pointless.

    This episode made me really angry when Corphish and Buizel showed up. Wow, talk about a slap in the face to older fans, eh, writers?

    Any fan of the AG and/or DP series should have felt insulted when Ash scanned those two pokemon. I've never felt this angry over watching a Pokemon episode since the middle of Johto.

    The Satoshi and Dent teamwork was just as great as always. The two were brilliant at quickly adapting to Soran's and Riku's battling style and beating the twins with it, Dent and Satoshi have an excellent compatibility with each another.

    I loved Soran and Riku admiring Dent, especially when they kept embarrassing him by calling Dent their "super aniki".

    Well then you don't have to fret as Satoshi recognized Buoysel and Heigani before he scanned them with his Pokédex.
