    BW39 - Reunion Battles In Nimbasa!

    Excited to have arrived in Nimbasa City, Ash, his friends as well as Luke look forward to the Battle Tournament that is to be hosted and they all want to take part. Hoping to find out where the Gym is, Ash asks Luke but it turns out that they are in Nimbasa Town instead! With the Battle Tournament luckily being held in Nimbasa Town, the group of friends all go to register. Just how will they all do in the Tournament and who will they individually be up against?

    I'm laughing at Yoshihiko becoming Jimmy Ray.

    Unchanged kana signature. "So what if I'm kid, so are you" Thanks, Georgia. "So, have you gotten any better?" Why do I feel he shouldn't be that insulted by such a remark. "Increase the stats..." Oh dear, here we go again. Ash proves yet again he can use unusual tactics. Instrumental dub theme? Interesting.

    I liked Iris (outside the stadium), Bianca, and Zorua in this episode. Well, most everyone was tolerable, except the opponent of Georgia (before the battle) and Georgia herself.

    Loved the first battle. Ash's was alright, I guess--I liked his Hydro Pump (I expected a powerful water move, but not Hydro Pump), but hated the anime-ish use of Supersonic.

    Good episode--for once, I anticipated some battling action.
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    So, did they keep it the same "Don Battle" or changed it to "Club Battles"?

    Isn't it changed to Club Battle, hence the dub title of the 3rd Don Battle episode, if not, I don't know.

    Lol, Jimmy Ray? Such a great name, he still seems weird to me.

    Omega remains Omega, Dino remains Dino, Ibushi becomes Emanuel, Antonio remains Antonio, and Sanshiro becomes Sylvester.

    Sekimoto is the same as well.

    And the commentator's name is Freddy O'Martin... Don't ask me why.

    The best part of the episode was Jimmy Ray. He should win the whole tournament, because he's such a boss. And Iris is totally eye-banging him.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Looks like Ash is getting used to Bianca's ''entry scenes.'' Burgundy continues to be just as humorous in the dub as she was in the original. Loved her comforting line to Stoutland. Ash's Palpitoad continues to be a boss, its Hydro Pump finish was right out a episode of DBZ. Poor Joktik though, little guy only loss because of a bad match-up.

    Overall a really solid ep I think.
