    Max is more than merely just a recurring character - he's a main character.

    That's because "hinoko" is ember in Japanese and "kinoko" is mushroom. Haruka made a similar mistake in the Japanese version, and since the Japanese creaters don't think about any dubs they put the mushroom, because she really said, "Achamo, use mushroom!" instead of, "Achamo, use ember!"

    It was Columbus instead.

    the best AG episode so far, but thats not saying much. Masato/Max (stupid dub name grrrr.) was more annoying in english than in Japanese. The first time I saw this episode I found him funny, in english I wanted to strangle him ^^. But he still had some good scenes and lines. Ash's battle was cool, I can't wait for his official battle. TR had good scenes and lines, but their first appearance was kind of random. Still has great animation. Overall, this was a good episode. 3 stars.

    the dubbers edited out a shot of Achamo setting Jame's head on fire :(. It was extremely hilarious in the japanese version. I guess they didn't want to give kids any ideas.

    I barely noticed. What I saw was the embers hitting James' face, but the skin didn't char right away; only in the next set of frames was his hair on the friz, but his skin was OK. What happened in the Japanese version?

    And speaking of giving kids ideas from this: why would they think about this now when they could have edited all similar shots that were aired early on in the series?

    Thanks for the picture Murgatroyd!

    That may be true, but it kinda reminds me of what they do to Cosmo in The Fairly OddParents. Clearly, he's married to Wanda, but they put gay jokes in there whenever they get the chance. Maybe the James-gay thing is all a gag? I dunno...

    Anyway, Kojiro's skull can be seen in the flames... *twisted grin*

    Refresh my memory...when have they ever shown any character in Pokémon on fire like that?

    Hasn't it happened to Ash a few times after Charizard breathes fire on him? And in "Pokémon Shipwreck", J&J are on fire, which is what wakes them up from their island fantasy (granted, the fire is atop their heads rather than engulfing their heads, but it lasted longer)

    Yes, you're correct on that. In Problem with Paras, Charmeleon breathes fire on Ash. His WHOLE head. It's not technically "on fire," but the flame flows over his whole head for a few seconds, and his face is totally charred black and he puffs out smoke afterwards. I think the reason why 4Kids edited this instance out is because they are more careful nowadays, after 9/11 and stuff. The banned the Tentacruel epi after 9/11 because Tentacruel destroyed the buildings.

    It was Columbus instead.

    I've seen that claim several times, but never any evidence for it. That episode hadn't been shown for a couple of years before 9/11, either.

    I missed it, because I was at that San Diego Pokémon Rocks America! event on Saturday. Missing the episode was well worth it though of course, and I plan to catch it when they air it again Friday. Anyhow~

    Indeed, and Blackjack is right in that we've seen similar instances many times before with Charizard (in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon, I remember Brock comments that after being Flamethrowered by Charizard so many times Ash would soon be too overcooked for Aerodactyl to eat, heh). Of course Team Rocket also got barbequed by Charmeleon in Paras, but then we've seen that happen in the way it did many times before...

    Really?? I'd never heard that before, though I certainly don't doubt you're correct in saying so. How pathetic... I could make plenty of snappy, bitchy comments on how I feel about society taking the demand to be PC too far anymore, but I know we've all heard it before, most if not all of us probably feel the same way, and not to menion the fact that it likely wouldn't change anything... Meh.

    That may be true, but it kinda reminds me of what they do to Cosmo in The Fairly OddParents. Clearly, he's married to Wanda, but they put gay jokes in there whenever they get the chance. Maybe the James-gay thing is all a gag? I dunno...
    Heh, reminds me of a remark ChicRocketJames made to me before about Poké's James... something to the effect of "James: the gayest man on Earth who might possibly be straight". Hee, I thought it was funny, myself... ^.^
