    Speaking about headcanon, in my headcanon, the dinner they're having during the night (when Ash announced he would go to Kalos the next day) is at least one week after the day Ash returned to Pallet Town. The dinner Delia talked about to Ash when he returned home happened offscreen. This is unbearable. I wonder why did they decided to make Ash seem so hateable in this episode, while, even for this series (where he's been arguably slightly out-of-character), one wouldn't expect him to treat his mom like that.

    So, quick question, and forgive me if this is the wrong thread to ask this in, but is the XY season not debuting next week? Initially i just assumed it would start right away after the last BW episode finished, but now i'm starting to see signs that next week might just be a rerun.

    No, it won't debut next week. At December 14, a re-run of Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village will be airing (first time in a decade since we last saw an original series episode on Cartoon Network, I think). Perhaps this mean they will air the three Kanto Starter-themed episodes the next three weeks? That would mean they'll promote Kanto and the next series will start along 2014, which would be a nice move in my opinion.

    Sorry to talk about next episode on this thread as well, but as far as I know, there are no "dub preview" threads on these forums.

    I wonder if we're going to get those remastered, or if that was just a one off for the first episode.

    I suppose the dubbing gap is just too short with how many breaks were taken in the last few months of BW in Japan, they're probably waiting to build that up again to the two-three months it normally is, which is still pretty fast.

    I doubt it. The that they got the first to episodes done so quickly would most likely mean they would have had to have episode 3 on for awhile now.

    Anyways, this episode was okay. Seeing Bulbasaur again was the highlight for me along with Misty getting referenced.

    I wish his other pokemon would of appeared but it wasn't as bad as people are making it out to be.

    ASH CALLED HIM MR. MIME INSTEAD OF MIMEY RUINED FOREVER

    This episode was kind of... meh. I had high hopes when I saw Bulbasaur, and the 30 Tauros, but then none of the other old Pokémon showed up? And apparently there was a photograph cut from the dub? Why would they cut that? Ugh. At least there was a bit of continuity, like the Teddiursa carving on his dresser.

    Also, the animation, while nice for some scenes, was pretty lazy during others. I especially liked seeing off-model Bulbasaur keep glancing at Alexa's camera and 1997 stock pose Misty fade away into the sky. Oh, and Oak getting poofy hair twice (from Boomburst??) Real classy.

    Team Rocket were okay, I guess. They did show up at Oak's for no real reason, but hey! They actually got some goofy expressions later on! And Wobbuffet is back, so that's nice.

    I would have liked to see Giovanni's face when he opened Team Rocket's Pokéballs and saw that they gave him a Woobat. :P

    Tracey not being there was lousy, as was only seeing Bulbasaur and Tauros out of all of Ash's old Pokemon. Still, I guess it was better than not getting an episode like this at all for Sinnoh. Ash giving one last thanks to his Unova team was nice, since they are staying behind as usual. We actually see Wobbuffet come back, and the Unova team given to Giovanni, so their transition into Kalos with only him and Meowth is better than ditching their team offscreen with a weak justification.

    Ash's Mum's voice is horrible D:

    That was actually a really good episode. Shame XY001 isn't following it... darn Kanto rerun.

    Dissapointed we didn't get to see more of his Pokemon.

    And why was there a random Pidove in Kanto D:

    That's another thing, what in the sam heck did they do to Ash's moms voice :(....I don't know which is worse now, the raw voice or the dub voice.

    From what I hear, the photograph was after the credits in Japan. With the way the do shows on Cartoon Network (starting the next show while the first show's credits roll on the side), there wouldn't really be a place to have that scene without moving it to sometime earlier in the episode, which probably would have made no sense.

    Couldn't one of those island fillers be cut to make this a two-parter? I just feel like so much more could have been done, seeing Misty and Tracey, seeing more of Ash's old Pokemon, maybe visiting a certain ping pong hall in Vermillion City while he was there, and so on.

    So after all the ups and downs, BW pulls itself together for a nice finish but I am extremely disappointed that TPCi cut the photograph of Ash and all his Pokemon (minus Squirtle & Primeape) from the dub, that felt like an important scene to me. As some have pointed out, there was literally no excuse for them to leave it out, they already replaced half the music so they might as well have added in this scene with one of their MIDI tracks after "Next Time A New Beginning" and put it in before the credits if they wanted to. I guess they could add it in to the DVD version but since when has TPCi been bothered to produce any Bonus Features, which I'm always happy to see in a DVD.

    They already had to pull Brock's departure in DP forward so what happened did they just not bother to fast forward to the end credits during the dubbing process, or did they not get that scene at all when the episode was commissioned for dubbing. Anyway's I appreciate the cameos of Ash's past friends and the fact that the writers have managed to use continuity this time with the transition from Unova to Kalos which is another plus point following DP's rushed ending and BW's clean slate approach. Now that the dub has finished, I'll be able to do a proper written review which I'll probably post on the blogs but for now X & Y is looking really promising and I'm looking forward to see how this saga turns out.

    When Ash's Charizard gives you a thumb's up, you know that he'll be back soon!

    I was so disappointed they didn't keep the last music piece, as the plane is heading to Kalos. One of the most beautiful pieces I have ever heard, and it was replaced. I'm not usually so upset about music replacement, but this was one of the pieces I think should have been kept in.

    Urggh im not one to usually complain about the voice actors (this may be the first time) but i couldnt stand what they did to Ash's mums voice. It was so jarring =\. I was disapointed not to see the rest of Ash's pokemon as well. Would of been nice fan service to see them. But still.. WOBBUFUTT.

    No, producers. Don't show Ash interacting with ALL his Pokémon or the Isshu Team interacting with the rest. I mean, who in the world would possibly want to see that when they can watch Oak messing around with Alexa's Pokémon and Rotom?

    Though did Ash really have to be such a dick to his mom?!

    You really DID just want to get BW over with, didn't you? -_-

    Though we DO appreciate the shout out to Ash's fallen companions
