This episode recently aired on CITV in the UK this morning and weirdly, the colour error with Pidgeotto remained as it was in the Japanese version yet Areodactyl's error was fixed. I know that CITV uses an "edited for PAL" version where the frame-rate and brightness are lowered, also "To Be Continued" presented in this pointless black banner when it is in English already as seen in the JAP, US and Australian version. What get's me is that the Australians, despite using PAL like the UK & Europe use a clean and unedited version of the show from the US, why, CITV have shown sagas prior to BW with no edits like that, so I find all these localized edits that have been done for CITV by TPCi rather pointless.
Anyway, here are screenshots from the ITV Player, you will have to click on the images to enlarge them:
When Ash's Charizard gives you a thumb's up, you know that he'll be back soon!
I have to say, this was the only episode of BW I've really enjoyed. I actually spent some time searching for it online to watch it, and for once I was not disappointed. This was one of the better BW episodes to date. Charizard was so awesome, the move animations were great, and, best of all, Iris being a total moron with an equally dumb comment made me laugh so hard I choked. And it was good to see Cilan stating the irony in her statements, such as her disobedient Excadrill and Dragonite being similar to Charizard. And on top of that, Ash 1-uped her by correcting her, knocking her down a few pegs in the process. Even Axew laughed at her. Combo in everyone's priceless reactions to Iris' stupidity and it was golden.
While some errors were present, and the voices seems a little out-of-place at times, overall, it was a very good episode. First time I've actually enjoyed a BW episode. Though I do wish N hadn't gotten in the way and canceled the battle. I would've so loved to see Charizard whoop Dragonite, showing them whose boss.
So, if I had to score this episode, I'd give it a solid 10 for a job well-done.
