    Default S16 EP06 "Curtain Up, Unova League!"

    BW103 - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    The Unova League has begun and Ash finds himself up against rival Trip. Does Pikachu have what it takes to take on Serperior?

    Important: For the benefit of those who do not follow the series in its original Japanese form, please remember to put spoilers pertaining to future episodes in spoiler tags.

    This was such a good episode it was just great episode. I cannot tell if Marc Thompson is Ferrothorn or Tom The Hermit Crab Wayland Is Ferrothorn.

    So, apparenly everyone thought they've been pronouncing Stephan's name correctly from the start? Lol.

    Well, I guess, looking back, I can see that this was a decent first start to the league at least,

    Actually I didn't dislike this episode at all. I felt it was genuinely a good start to this League. It's what followed next that I really dislike myself.

    I'll give the dub 84/100.

    The dub is actually above average in this episode. I have to say, props to Jason Griffith for his awesome voice as Cilan, and Sarah's much improved Ash Ketchum voice in BW (both her yelling and laughing are quite bad, though, and she needs to work on both aspects of her Ash voice). I also noticed Eileen Stevens has gotten far less annoying as Iris and is more subdued in her work, so she's improved as well.

    I've always liked Jamie McGonnigal's Trip voice, so I have nothing to say other than he does excellent work and nails what he should sound like.

    Okay, let's see...

    Bianca still hasn't learned to open her damn eyes when running! Isn't that the sort of thing we all learn before kindergarten?

    I've completely lost track of whether Stephan's name should be pronounced as STEPH-an or Ste-PHAN, and to be honest, I've stopped caring. At least that running "joke" has been laid to rest.

    Trip's back on his Valium.

    Cameron's still an idiot. When he said he'd arrived three days early so that he wouldn't be late, I was starting to think he was finally becoming semi-competent. Then it turned out he'd completely forgotten to register (and apparently never heard the word "register" before), so there went that bit of hope.


    And no big 6v6 battle between Ash and his regional rival? Ash is facing Trip in 1v1 prelims? This pretty much cements Shutterbug's failure to live up to the standards of Paul or Gary Motherf**king Oak.

    As stated in the opening post, we would like for people to put information about future events in spoiler tags so that people who don't follow the Japanese version won't be spoiled about future events. I've already added in a few spoiler tags, but please don't violate this warning again. Thank you.

    This was 10/10 for me because I only like this one, the next episode and the Batle with Stephan in this League.

    Okay, this ep is a League Setter, 10/10, blah blah, I have said these things in the Japanese version. No need to repeat myself.
    Focusing on the dub changes, I get 2 pros and 1 con...

    1) The Stephan thing was nice to see dubbed (everyone assuming they said it right so Stephan still stands alone...)
    2) Bianca's voice after almost half a year was WAY TOO annoying, compared to the better Japanese one...
    3) Have I heard right? They kept the Japanese Best Wishes Opening! YAY!

    I got a scum result on that bush! LYNCH IT LYNCH IT LYNCH IT!

    I just can't get over how stupid Cameron is shouldn't have even been able to join the league, plus would have liked it if Ash vs Trip wasn't right off the bat like this.

    I admit that this wasn't a bad dub, but I have some problems with the content of the episode. Cameron's helplessness is starting to get old, especially when he started yelling at his own Pokemon. It really makes you wonder how he even got this far in his journey. Also, I'm a bit disappointed that Ash and Trip aren't getting a full 6 v 6 battle like Ash has with his past primary rivals. They've basically been building up to this battle since the first episode, and then they just make it a one on one battle? Why are they making these other, thrown in, less-interesting characters seem more important than the main rival?

    Yeah, the league...let's just say this episode was the tip of the iceberg with this one. I won't spoil it for you, but all I can say is this is nothing compared to what occurs next. lol. XD.

    I didn't like how Trip or Ash were treated in this league, but I won't say anything else on this one.

    Yeah same here, I will not give anything else away but Ash And Trip Really should have had a6VS.6 Battle and would probably would have been epic and really Good.
