    Well, it is in your very own sig as well, and it is a pretty awesome Pokémon anyway. :p

    Gotta love the perspective in the first scan. The return of Takeda in manga form this time?

    One more Darmanitan? Woah.

    And damn... I might sound stupid now, but I was actually leaning toward that Magmortar actually belonging to Paul, I guess it was just an overdose of wishful thinking. Bleh.

    Nice to see Ferrothorn making its debut here, even though it'll surely be playing an underwhelming role. Both Ferroseed and Ferrothorn have now had their debuts in episodes centering around Iris. Coincidence? definitely :PPppPP

    The images are making this episode to look very interesting. It seems like Jenny has gathered some strong trainers to stop Dragonite in its tracks, and Dawn and Ash seems to be joining in it too with Oshawott and Piplup. Without no evidence of Dragonite actually being the one who caused the problems (what was the problem now again? Power failure?) it seems like Iris steps up to protect it, as their act isn't fair, or something.

    It does look to me like the battle with Hydreigon might just be a flashback, that'd be disappointing. Maybe Dragonite got hurt and took shelter in Undella Town? Whatever it did I must say that it's looking interesting. But, where's Dento? I can see both Ash and Dawn, but no Dento. Oh well, maybe he's there too, but wasn't just featured in the scan.

    I'm going to be very miffed if Ferroseed/Ferrothorn only get to appear in Iris episodes. They're among my favorite Gen V Pokemon and... why? Why must they be squandered like this? They deserve meaningless filler just as all the others do. Gah...

    Everything else about this episode rubs me the wrong way for obvious reasons.

    Well I got that signature before they didn't show Darmanitan in basically every single episode :p

    So the Dragonite knows what appears to be Flamethrower as well? What else can it do?

    We already saw that it could use Flamethrower in one of the trailers, that's why people have been so worried for it to beat Ice-types. :p

    Oh, and it can use ThunderPunch too, if I recall correctly. It'd be cool if it had Extremespeed.

    I'm hoping we'll see Extremespeed too, as well as either Dragon Pulse or Dragonbreath. I'm a little bored of Draco Meteor and Dragon Rush myself.

    Interesting scans.

    I'm now worried that by the next saga, the new female MC will catch a super strong evolved Pokémon the same episode as the fucking tournament.

    If that really happens, I'll consider the writers the worst writers in the history of anime.

    ...I could have died for Johto's writers.

    I agree. Draco Meteor is definitely overused. We've pretty much seen that move with every Dragon-type we've encountered, but it kinda feels like every powerful Dragon-type we encounter must have that move. I mean, even Cynthia's Garchomp used Draco Meteor in the battle against Axew, when it previously (did it have it back in Sinnoh? If I recall correctly it didn't, but I'm not sure) didn't have that move. I guess that since Garchomp has been established as an extremely powerful Pokémon they just had to give it Draco Meteor. Wasn't Dragon Rush already enough? :/

    Oh, and Dragon Pulse would've been nice! I like the way it's animated, like a green sphere. Kinda reminded me of Aura Sphere. :)

    And Thunderfang oddly enough, based on some old footage.

    It used it during the Galactic final (only ep we saw it use the move in DP IIRC).

    Are you sure? I think you might be misinterpreting Thunder Punch as Thunder Fang. The first was close to its face from the angle of the scene.

    It is good though that they're giving it a varied moveset. Other BW have really suffered in that regard.
