    Great episode and I think really well dubbed too - the Pokemon voices were all really good, particularly Jellicent and Brycen was really good as well. Officer Jenny sounded a bit strange, but that might just have been because of how rarely she appears now.

    The terrible title and a few terrible lines were about the only negatives as far as the dub goes, Cilan saying something like 'Pokemon Hunters are bad!' was about as pointless as anything he's ever said. Brycen's 'Looks like Crunch had a lot of Punch' was delivered in such a way it almost worked despite the line being about as bad as it gets.

    This episode really made me like Krokorok, he has a great variety of emotions and does a lot of genuinely funny things in this episode. More seemed to be done with his personality in this episode than half of the rest of Ash's team combined. Shame that it took so long to be captured.

    One real annoyance is that Ash made no attempt to try and free Krokorok - or again, just return him to his Pokeball, like in nearly every other similar situation. Putting aside the fact that no one trying to poach anything would decide to put it on the line with a Pokemon battle, Ash should still act as if he wanted to try something as well to help get his Pokemon free, rather than leaving it to someone else to win a battle.

    There were three titles, Enter the Beartic, The Way of the Beartic and Fist of Ice.

    I am not fond of the English voices of Volcarona and the Blue Jellicent because they both sound like Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Not that I have fully anything against the Meatwad's actual voice). There's just no distinction between them. They both sound almost exactly the same.

    Brycen's english dub voice wasn't that good to me. Pokemon poacher's english dub voice was good to me.

    I think the best line from this episode was Cilan's "YOU AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGRGRRGRRGRRGRGRGRRRRE!!!!!"

    Second place goes to Brycen's "Crunch had a lot of punch" line.

    The dual Jellicent battle was kind of a neat twist, haven't seen an outright trick like that in a long time. See, the plural of Jellicent is Jellicent! :0 Beartic laid a decent amount of smackdown on both Jellicent at once, it was indeed like a kung fu action movie, or a Let's Play of Mortal Kombat featuring Sub Zero. At first I was confused by Krokorok's weakness against Water types, because I thought Water was weak against Ground, not the other way around. Had to look that one up while I was watching the episode just to check the facts.

    But speaking of type resistance, in this new Gen, where a trainer's inner Pokémon really takes the forefront, shouldn't Iris not really mind sudden flashes of thunder and lightning? Considering she's a Dragon Type... human? Dragon Types are resistant to Electric Types.

    Oh, and one more question. During Cilan's retelling of Enter The Beartic (at least I think that was the movie he was talking about), when Brycen head kicked Beartic, was that red stuff blood, or dynamic impact lines?

    Krokork is also a Dark type so it is strong agianst ghost type. It can go ether way.

    Either way, the dubbers at least got the reference. Those three movies were references to some of Bruce Lee's movie. From what I heard, the last movie that Brycen starred in was Game of Ice. It may be intentionally removed since the movie it was based on was Game of Death, which was the last movie Bruce Lee made...

    I'm betting that Brycen's surname is also Lee

    "Enter the Beartic"...
    This sounds sort of wrong. o^0

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Hmm, not the best debut for Volcarona, but a strong one for Brycen and Jellicent I think.

    I gotta say, if Brycen really was meant to be a Pokemon version of the greatest action star of all time, Bruce it hits all by itself Lee, then I think he's a fairly respectful and thoughtful one. I mean, the overall point of this ep is really to make Brycen seem more like a challenge to Ash, and thus make Ash's inevitable victory over him all the sweeter, but it still didn't feel hallow.

    Gotta say, while their training left much to be desired, Ash and Krok generally came off pretty badass in this ep.
