    >Roxie plays a dub-insert piece
    >Ash and co. cover their ears and are clearly in pain

    LOL!

    I really loved Roxie's voice. It's so confident and powerful, much better than anything I was expecting. Whoever her VA is, kudos to them for actually being able to emote.

    I'm really liking Ash's strategy with Leavanny here. The boy really works well with this Pokemon, and it's good to see their training has payed off.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Okayy i have watched this episode 4/5 more times.. YES that many times lol :)

    So i had a better chance to observe it and i really gotta give it to tpci, Excellent dub :) i cannot get enough of roxie's voice seriously!! it's utterly perfect, and i was impressed with how well tpci blended their dub music into the rock scenes.

    And koffings voice didn't sound much different from it's 4 kids counterpart, thank god! and i was really impressed with the dub music in this episode, i remember the soundtrack being quite repitive in the original, so i was pleased with the change, overal this would have to be the most flawless episode tpci has yet to dub, and it's only going to get better.

    I'll change my score to a 9.9/10

    It's funny how Ash Pokedexed Koffing when he's seen James used one for years. Though I suppose it's so newer fans who've only played Black and White know who Koffing is.

    A pretty decent dub. I like Roxie's voice, she sounded tough and someone who would be a in a punk-rock band. I'm assuming their name is supposed to be a parody of Green Day, considering their guitarist's name is Bad Billy Jo. I might be the only who was annoyed with the "rock" puns. I get she's in a rock band, but they seemed to overdue in my opinion. I really don't pay attention to have much original music is replaced in dubs, but I really liked the music they used.

    I'll give the episode 7.75/10

    i would have given the episode 900/10 if they would have played Never Gonna Give You Up at that part. Hehehe


    my only real complaint was that with Roxie's voice actor is that she just sounded a bit TOO cheerfull. but hey it was a good episode. it would have been awesome if when Koffing came out that they would have put in subtitles "I'm BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!"

    James only had a Koffing in the first season, and since then, Koffing appearances have been pretty rare.





    You found Koffing!



    You see a small piece of paper on the ground.

    Pokemon B&W: Rival Destinies 2.4/12

    Excellent ratings for Pokemon, the hype of black and white 2, and a good episode for once, proves how great it can rate.

    That's pokemon's strong point ;D

    i'm hoping for the ratings to stay like this for a while, with best wishes 2 starting in america in a week i could see pokemon getting constant 2.0's for a while :)

    man i hope they find a way to pump up the team rocket episode arc coming up in a few months.. if anything could possibly top that insane rating , its the team rockets arc 2 parter.. but that will require a big advertising push for it .. which of course they dont like to do.. but if anything can top the 2.4, its gonna be that 2 parter.. considering the ground work for that arc is just about to go into place .. advertising the big team rocket arc would be a big ratings grab

    With the 8:30am timeslot i don't think pokemon could do much better then a 2.4, which is sad because if pokemon was airing at 10am it's potential could be limitless

    I died a little inside when Ash scanned Koffing.

    Y'know, the irony of people saying things like this is delicious, considering most of us do the exact same thing for old pokemon in-game with each new generation.
