    Youngster Gorou, from the GSC arc, used "oira" also.

    So...where does "oira" stand in terms of what it says about the char? Like how "ore" is standard relatively masculine (usually young) guy, "boku" is kinda sissyboy or mild-mannered polite guy, "atashi" is really unreserved female, etc.

    The characterisation of the main characters can only get weirder from here on out... I mean, the player characters are as cookie-cutter as you can get, and if they don't want to repeat characters...

    So where does using "oira" stand on the scale of weirdness? If Meowth is any indication, it's pretty high on the scale, but I don't wanna jump to any conclusions.

    Episode 2.

    Diamond is watching TV, and eating at the same time. Pearl ponders the situation. But Diamond isn't listening, so he explodes. It seems that Ms. Berlitz has continually refused to give her name. They imagine her to be a guide, and yet she orders them around. Then as the night approaches they go straight to a hotel. And not just any hotel - an extremely high-class expensive hotel, Hotele Kotobuki. So, Pearl sends Perahiko off to find the truth.

    In the penthouse suite, Ms. Berlitz receives a call from Sebastian. He is rather over-anxious about her safety.

    Downstairs, Pearl decides to name his Hikozaru Saruhiko. He decides that it is a perfect fit for him, being hasty like he is. As opposed to Naetle... (then a few frames of Naetle moving at a snail's pace...) which Diamond names Rū.

    Upstairs again, Ms. Berlitz is attacked by a horde of Bippa. Pearl notes that they have far longer teeth than in the Pokédex illustration... Diamond notes that their teeth are so hard that they can bite through the walls, the floor, wood and stone furniture... and gets an idea. He calls them into an elevator and takes them to the roof... Pearl gets worried for the safety of the so-called carefree corps (のんびり軍団) and rushes after them.

    And on the roof... the Bippa are biting away at the Mukuhawk statue. It seems Diamond is not as dumb as he acts - he reasons that, when the hotel was built, the Bippa lost their natural habitat, and no longer had anything to grind their teeth on. So their teeth got longer and longer... until they simply went mad. Diamond quips, 敗者は歯医者に行きなっさ〜い haisha-wa ha'isha-ni ikinassa~i (the losers, please go to a dentist!)... and Ms. Berlitz laughs. (See closeup.) She vehemently denies this, of course.

    Pearl notices that the statue is made of solid gold... and then panics, thinking that they would be made to pay for the damage to the statue (the Bippa actually managed to gnaw away chunks of gold). But Ms. Berlitz says it's not a problem.

    Because the hotel is her property.

    And the episode ends with the silhouette of Mars looking on ominously...

    It's just a silhouette, nothing spectacular.

    Hikari's bodyguards look like Ardos and Eldes, genetically crossed with Ein and on crack. Whooo :D

    And yay for insane wild Bippa with big teeth.

    I haven't gone to get the magazine yet. (The bookstore hasn't called yet, which is odd.) Netkun is actually on time on updating, for once.

    Hmm. Turns out that silhouette wasn't Mars, but a Rukushio instead.

    First. The real bodyguards have decided that something is up. They decide to look for their client themselves. On the other hand, Ms. Berlitz has decided that Diamond and Pearl are pro bodyguards after all, after seeing how they handled the Bippa crisis the previous night - 私と同世代だというだけの理由で、頼りないと決めつけてはいけませんね - I shouldn't think them as unreliable just because they are about the same age as I am.

    Then, of course, the Rukushio jumps out at them. But it just as suddenly jumps back into the tall grass. Ms. Berlitz begins to realise that Sebastian's fears were not completely ungrounded (though I must say, she seems to be some kind of trouble magnet). Diamond asks about lunch even as he consumes kebab after kebab. Ms. Berlitz of course answers that lunch will be at noon. Pearl explodes at Diamond for addressing who he perceives to be a tour guide as お嬢様 ojō-sama. Pearl is determined to find out the secret of her identity.

    Meanwhile back in Masago, Dr. Nanakamado and Mr. (Dr.?) Berlitz discuss their research - 「ポケモンの♂と♀における外観の違い」 The visual differences between male and female Pokémon, 「シンオウ地方の西側と東側における外観の違い」 The visual differences between Pokémon in the east and west of Sinnoh, and of course, 「ポケモンの90%は進化に関係している」 90% of Pokémon are linked to evolution.

    As for the trio, Ms. Berlitz is wondering about what Diamond and Pearl are training for. Pearl launches into a spiel about how tsukkomi is from the heart. But Saruhiko bursts into laughter. Evidently, it's a ticklish one - it had brushed its back against some grass. And, the Rukushio jumps out once again, and pulls Ms. Berlitz off her Ponyta.

    Diamond and Pearl try to interpret the situation. Why are its peers simply standing around watching? Evidently it wants to prove itself to the herd. Diamond orders an attack, but the slowpokes (no pun intended) are swiftly (likewise) defeated. However the herd is not impressed. Pearl orders a defensive strategy while they work out the truth: Rukushio communicate by electricity using their claws (c.f. the Pokédex flavour text) - the outcast's claws are blunt, so it could not communicate properly, hence its outcast status.

    Pearl takes the outcast Rukushio to where the herd is and scolds them for making it an outcast simply because of an injury. A bolt of electricity later, the herd seems to have reconciled with the outcast and they all leave peacefully. Meanwhile Ms. Berlitz is hitting an invisible partner and muttering やめなさい Stop it! (the same thing Pearl had just said to the herd). Pearl insists that she was practising tsukkomi, she denies it. (Sound familiar?)

    The trio continue their journey and approach Kurogane Gate. Meanwhile, the real bodyguards are examining the golden Mukuhawk statue that the Bippa turned into a chewing toy the last episode...

    I like how they are explaining the gender difference as native to Shinou.
