Although it doesnt air until two weeks from now we already have a summary from Zhen Lin.

Satoshi-tachi have arrived at Fuschia. But Zenigame vanishes. The paniced Haruka in searching for Zenigame arrives at a station, where she meets an old woman, Kuni. She has not been able to comprehend her husband, Isao's, death in a faraway town many decades ago, and has hence waited at the station ever since. By a strange chance, Haruka and Nyarth experience a timeslip into the past, will they save Isao's life...?source http://f42.aaa.livedoor.jp/~imawaka/imgboardphp/src/1133955681064.jpg it also provides info on Bonsly and the ninja's so if somebody translates that that would be great. So Meowth enters the mix as well. Well we needed fillers no matter how much potential this had.

You know, I never mentioned this before, but because of my choice in forum style, I cannot read your text clearly.

As for the episode.... I do not see why they couldn't have done what they did with the Mysterious Dungeon games in advertising for the Ranger games.

EDIT: Yeah V, Ranger episode occured already. Mmmm... Is that some nummy crack I spy.

An episode that touches on death? That seems to be a rare theme in the Anime.

I know it's come up before (Latios and creepy Ninetales-lady-in-the-mist) but it's nice to see it.

In case you didn't notice...we already have a thread about this ep (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=96150). Sure, it's mostly speculation based off the title, but it still centers on this ep.

Anyway...this ep looks like average filler, other than the ever-so-rare mention of death.

Uh oh. An episode that has death in it. I'd like to see how 4KIDS deals with this one, seeing as how they'll most likely have to mention it because the subject of the episode seems to be focusing on whether or not May can save the man's life. Although, the episode itself sounds awesome. It's not often we get a fresh plot thrown into the show.

Uh, no. 4kids will say the old man "passed away" or "never came home". There are a LOT of ways to allude to death without ever saying the word.

Simply having the wife say, "I never saw my husband again" is a great example for this episode.

Watch some nutcases below me say this episode will be banned by 4kids. Idiots.

Yeah, I wonder what Meowth'll do. It doesn't look like the egg will hatch in this episode, but you never know.

Ooh, so its got a 'Staff and Cast' listing on that scan, ne? And I'm assuming it tells us just who will be in charge of directing the animation of each episode. Would be much appreciated if someone could get me some names.

The Time travel episode sounds like a disgustingly blatant rip-off of one of the Richie Hoso episodes that featured Celebi, and I'm not too fond of that. However, I am interested in the possible interaction between Meowth and Haruka. They're the last characters you'd think would feature in an episode together, so either way its going to be interesting.
I'm also hoping Meowth gets more character development out of this. They're doing a damn good job with fleshing out James' personallity recently, so why not do the same for the remaining two?

Station = trains. And judging from the description given, this is a pretty old station to boot. Which means a good ol' fashoined steam-powered rail runner.
Theres something quite awesome about seeing vehicles other than cars in the pokémon world. Especially the old school variety.

Other then boats, as well.

So we were wrong about the Ranger > Bonsly > Time Travel 3 parter. This seems very cool as well. Lets stay away from the idea of Squirtle evolving, shall we?

"Timeslip"

When Pokemon starts stealing from Enterprise and Quantum Leap, you know it's is deep crap.

There just better be trains. I'm a big train nut and I want trains. Otherwise, this episode looks like the Richie special all over again.

May: "We MUST go back in time and save her husband from being sent to THE SHADOW REALM!"
Random old Filler man: "Trust in the Heart of the Pokeball and thier is nothing we can't do!"

Onto this episode a week early, but still. Not a 3-part series, I was wrong. Damn....X_X

But still, touching on death is rare in Pokemon, and sounds rather interesting, but if thier is Meowth is a hologram trying to help May get back to her normal time, I AM GOING TO SCREAM. Or if May is in a different persons body. Either way, it sounds like a good episode, but a Quantem Leap rip-off. =P

Someone doesn't have their humour cap on. :D I was aluding to a *certain* anime in which THE SHADOW REALM is used as a substitute for Hell, death and all that bad stuff.

Anyways, you're right. Heck, they used the words "passed away" in one of the very first episodes. Even if that was a dub mistake and Brock's Mommy came back oO;;;

The Chronicles ep with Richie featured death. The pokemon centre owner told richie that on her 8th birthday, he was killed in a landslide. Richie went back in time to save him.

I have a feeling the egg'll hatch in this ep. It'd be about a beginning (the egg hatching), and an ending (Isao was dead), but then it could be a restarting instead of an ending (if Isao doesn't die)

well I can predict something to do with falling from something


my prediction:
a filler
after Zenigame goes missing, Haruka will hear the story of the dead man, somehow go back in time, stop him from dying. egg won't hatch

Zenigame is too young to evolve...

and also scenes from the next movie.

Just saw the preview. (Man, that's gonna be the famous line of this thread soon.) Apparently, there is some kind of special involved in this since the preview shows the scenes from the Jirachi movie (including the title at the bottom) and scenes from the upcoming ninth movie.

Gravy
16th December 2005, 3:18 AM
They're devoting a special timeslot to the movie "Wishing Star of 7 Nights: Jirachi", as well as the airing of the "Haruka travels through time!" episode. Thats what the movie scenes are all about. Though its interesting to see they'll be playing some Ranger stuff also.

The idea of Meowth and Haruka staring alongside each other is still an awesome concept. I hope they try their best to make the interaction between the two characters enjoyable to watch.

Man, I wish Combusken could just once do something besides battle. Too much Squirtle makes Gravy a sad savoury sauce ;_;

If you had kept your ear to the ground like the rest of us, instead of rewatching the Breloom episode over and over hoping that if you watch it enough, 'Fire Spin' will turn into 'Flamethrower', maybe you'd know about the Christmas Special slot that's happening next Thursday, which will contain the next episode and the Jirachi movie.

Rex Kamex
16th December 2005, 3:20 AM
Upon looking at the preview several more times, apparently this thingy is some kind of two or one hour special or something like that. That's what it looks like, but I'm not completely sure what's happening.

EDIT: Rats, I posted this message too late...

Feity
16th December 2005, 3:21 AM
they are showing the new episode as well as the 6th movie and some stuff about the 9th movie, okay? That's all the rest of the stuff in the preview is.

Am I the only one that noticed May's egg hatching in the preview? Hurray?

Gravy
16th December 2005, 4:19 AM
Egg hatching? If you're refering to that yellow light that starts glowing from whatever the hell Haruka is holding, I'm more inclined to believe thats what is going to transport her, Meowth and Squirtle through time :/
You have to love the placement of the Pokemon logo, ne?

I dunno, the fact that the preview starts off with a scene of May holding the egg in her lap tips it off.

Meowth, May and Squirtle are standing next to one another and all of a sudden something flashes in her arms. Granted, we've seen Pokemon "evolve" from eggs such as Phanpy and other various Pokemon, and I think the reason the text immediately blocked it out was so we don't get spoiled what Pokemon the egg hatches into. (As if it's not already pretty obvious)

If May was holding something else in her arms for the timeslip why did they have to cover it up? It looks like the Pokemon in the egg somehow makes May and the others timeslip into the past.

Lil Brother
16th December 2005, 4:26 AM
Time-traveling Ee- I mean, mysterious Pokemon?

Appearantly the big spoiler will happen very early in the episode since the preview seemed to keen to showing sixth movie clips and showing just a bit of the next episode.

Why was part of the Ranger movie teaser there exactly?

Haunter Hunter Sohrab
16th December 2005, 4:26 AM
Darn not again. Now that they changed the size of the preview window I can't view it properly. All I get is the normal music and narrarator and then like 5 frames of still pics and that's all.

As for all I saw. Meowth and May together? Sounds good. That yellow light is probably how they go back in time.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of it being the egg by any means, but it brings up the question of why they'd give it this big flashy light show in the first place. What makes this egg more special than any other that is warrants a blinding light hatching scene. However, after saying that, if animation for the attacks can be altered drastically every couple of episodes, what stops them doing the same with simply making an egg hatch~

On the other hand, it could just be that they're just being misleading. And lets face it, that has been their fort&#233; during the Battle Frontier saga thus far. Just look at the Mudkip episode and Phampy's evolution. We can't clearly see anything thanks to the logo, and thats obviously their intention. For all we know, it could be some random psychic pok&#233;mon that was lying around injured, and after Haruka picks it up, it becomes intimidated and thus initiates the time travel sequence.

Hopefully the preview that followed the Bonsly ep won't have all that text covering it.

going out on a limb here...but you think because May, Meowth, and Squirtle are shown flying around in a balloon (TR's possibly) yelling at something...maybe the Pokemon that might hatch this episode is a flying type? I know people seem 2 have it narrowed down to Eevee and Zigzagoon, but Pidgey's colors work with the egg, too.....just thinking, though....

I'm assuming it is TR's balloon, but if you look, Squirtle's releasing an ice beam.

Yay, so Squirtle gets in on the whole 'Travelling through time' act. Gotta love how that thing just keeps on butting in.

Yeah.

Watching the preview over, I have to say I'm rather unimpressed. I... just don't care about this episode. It doesn't look interesting or exciting in the slightest, which is a shame considering it's going to be May going back in time.

To help some old man not die. >_>

She should have gone back in time to when Koga left for the Elite Four and left Janine in charge, who proceeded to have a big bikini party at the Gym with all her hot friends. x___x

The Big Al
16th December 2005, 4:07 PM
Yeah, this episode looks lackluster and Squirtle having a major role just makes it all the worse. Oh well, the party couldn't last forever and the fillers or semi-fillers of stupidity have returned with a revengance.

Gravy
16th December 2005, 4:11 PM
To be fair though, we haven't really got much to go by anyway. I don't think a 7 second piece of preview footage would do any episode much justice.

But then again, with a plot that strongly resembles a somewhat recent Hoso...

16th December 2005, 4:42 PM
Yes, because of 10 seconds of footage this episode looks lackluster. Please. This episode is probably going to be very good.

I also find it amusing that Meowth is traveling around with May at the beginning. Is this one of those episodes where TR and Ash. and co all get blasted into the air and wind up randomly paired together? Neither Ash, Brock or Max are with May, and Jessie and James are MIA too.

Eh, I know what you're saying Cyber. It's just that I can't help but feel bored just looking at the preview. Sure, it could turn out to be awesome, but still. That's just what I'm feeling at the mo... a little silly of me considering the amount of footage we've seen...

I guess it's because I heard that this is just going to be a re-hash of the Celebi Hoso.

CyberCubed
16th December 2005, 4:47 PM
Yes but this time it stars May and Meowth. And not Richie and Celebi. That alone should make it more interesting.

It's more likely that the glowing you see is from the effects of the time-travel... though no one can say for sure that it won't be the egg hatching.

I'm curious what role squirtle will play in all of this... wasn't there something a while ago about it being sick in this episode and that having something to do with the plot?

You still got it, Al.

To be honest, the last trio of episodes (which includes this [and yes, the Bonsly one]) have been rather meh. That stupid Ranger episode was a super turn off. And then the whole time travel episode and second Ranger episode which threw us through a loop.

I'll be glad to get back on track after this.

Thanks V. It's good to be back after my month or so of rather inactiveness. Your new sig rocks, btw. You too have still got it.

Same goes for Gravy. XD

Agreed on the comments about the last few episodes... quite a lot of things, such as the episode with Celebi and the mentioning of Time Travel made quite a lot of people think that they were connected. But because the writers have run out of good ol' Origino Juice (Owned by the Claypass.inc) it didn't happen.

We gave the writers far more credit than they deserve. We've set our expectations higher than the writers are either willing or able to reach. As I said in another thread, the great episodes were nice but we all knew thry couldn't last forever. Granted we're not back to the pit we were in around Saffron rehashed but we've leveled off to an average but unoriginal quality in plots.

The writers make an episode about Celebi, then a later one involving timetravel, but the two are completely separate fillers... WTF? I don't think even the writers are that dumb.

Gimme a week, I'll find some way to link this outrage to the JFK assassination. >>

He's not implying Baltoy is in the egg, he's saying that not only Celebii can time travel. I can :p

To be fair though, we haven't really got much to go by anyway. I don't think a 7 second piece of preview footage would do any episode much justice.

I still think the fact that Zenigame will play a huge part has already killed this episode for me. Yeah, I read the synopsis beforehand, I knew Haruka would be looking for the damned thing when she fell into the time-slip.... but I didn't think it'd come with her. And, it's out of its Monster Ball all throughout the preview, leaving me to assume it'll be kept out for this entire episode (I can guess it's for no apparent reason, too, just like Kotoise in the Banebuu episodes, and Gomazou in the Elekid episode.... though, I can't complain about them). To add more salt to the wound, it's flaunting about its f*cking, cheaply-gained Ice Beam (and as I predicted, it looks as though that recoil flaw was indeed a cheap plot deviced used to beat Harley and never being brought up by the writers again.... look at the little bas**** in that balloon, firing it off with absolutely no problems now).

Gravy, as much as this makes you sad, this makes me friggin p*ssed.... hmm, I did have plans on making a comic to ease my sanity. A comic made with screenshot cut-outs, in which Zenigame gets its brain brutally eaten by some kind of famous savage called forth by Harley's Ariados (I'm thinking Hannibal Lecter, but he's just a cultured cannibal as opposed to a brutal savage, isn't he? Dunno, never exactly watched any of those movies). Harley took Ariados to the world of fantasy RPGs to learn how to summon in time for their revenge match, and of course, he wins the ribbon because, as brutal and unmerciful the display was, it was a good appeal specially fitted towards his style of cool, yet scarey things (that, and the judges are at his mercy to call off the summon XD).... nah, I know I'm probably gonna get bored with all the copy-pasting some ways into it (I don't have Photoshop, either, which would make it even more of a living hell). It is nice to think about, though.

[cough] Anyway, in spite of the Zenigame showcasing, this episode's not entirely lost. I'm hoping there'll be some good interaction between Haruka and Nyaasu (hmm... has anyone noticed that she just recently had a good moment to interact with another Rocket Dan member not too long ago?), and Nyaasu episodes are always great. That, and if the egg hatches (and it's not another baby I'll grow to absolutely dispise.... still hoping for that Eievui with potential of a rapid evolution), then it oughta make the episode seem worthwhile. Though, I am as confused as everyone else as to why the f*ck they're having this two episodes after Celebi. Though, there's a slight chance it may still be involved, possibly with the Pokemon Ranger's reappearance (wasn't Hinata's seiyuu scheduled to voice for two episodes? Whatever happened to that?), it seems very slim.

From all I could manage with this horrible preview window it seems like a pretty dark episode. This is great, Meowth and May. Now for Jessie. I don't think I saw an episode with her and someone from the group before.

You've been looking at Gravvys sig too much havn't you XD.

On a serious note the egg talk is getting annoying, I KNOW the glowing seems to come from the egg but that doesn't mean that you should bring the egg guessing here.

Hmmmm going on the crazy side. I'm going to predict that may is going to pick up the item that caused that man to disappear and she is going to store it in the incubator temporarily. Then when the egg starts to hatch the device is triggered and the time slip occurs.

MagicBox
18th December 2005, 5:26 AM
Why in the world would they ban this episode?I think people are saying this because this episode has something to do with death. This is a stupid reason to say an episode will be banned. 4KIDS has acknowledged death before, people! They just prefer not to if they can find a way around it.

Look, we all know May and Meowth are going to save the man's life when they travel back to his time (this is Pokemon, remember?), so there is no reason for 4KIDS to dance around this man's death if it's prevented IN the episode. I hate to say this, but give 4KIDS some credit.

CyberCubed
18th December 2005, 5:44 AM
Just like some people thought the Groudon/Kyorge episodes would be "heavily edited" because of it's content, and when those episodes were dubbed 4kids didn't touch a thing.

The most retarded comment i heard was that the Wynaut episode is going to be banned because Meowth has that psuedo-laser gun thing in it. :rolleyes:

Anyway, yes, sad to say, but you need to give 4kids more credit than that. Pokemon is still their most well-handled dub, and unlike their other shows, they actually do refer to death, directly in some cases.

I dunno. I think banning an episode because Meowth uses a fake moustache for one of his disguises was a top contender.
Because apparantly having a moustache like that makes pokémon pro-nazi or something.

I never heard that one. Though I've heard plenty of Nazi jokes referring to that episode.

I remember I said Meowth's weapons looked like a Plasma Rifle from X-Com and some n00b said the episode was going to be banned because of it.

Back to this episode, why would it be banned. They have so many ways to sugar coat the fact the man died. Besides, if the egg does hatch, it'd be suicide to ban it.

CyberCubed

We don't see much of a preview because we have scenes from the 6th movie as well as the 9th movie trailer.

Anyways, a May and Meowth episode should be very good, I love episodes when both teams work together.

I wonder how TR and Ash and the gang will react to one of their partners missing.

I also wonder where and how this time warp came to be, I was thinking Celebi episode would have some relation to this one, guess not though.

CyberCubed

It's got to hatch sometime. And the beginning of the preview focuses right on May's egg, which is a dead giveaway. I think it's likely to hatch in this ep, as it's a May spotlight ep, thus the perfect time for it to hatch.

Haunter Hunter Sohrab
20th December 2005, 3:36 AM
What if..

May gives her egg away or accidently leaves it in the past? A nice shock that would be. But yeah there's no way that could happen.

I doubt it will hatch anytime soon. Well atleast I don't think so. How many episodes did it take Togepi to hatch? It wasn't very short was it?

CyberCubed
20th December 2005, 3:38 AM
Togepi's egg hatched within 4 episodes of Ash finding it.

Meanwhile Phanpy's egg hatched within 3 episodes of Ash getting it.

May's egg on the other hand has taken 7 episodes so far, and still no hatching in sight. It's taken much longer for May's egg to hatch then either Phanpy or Togepi.

Heracross
20th December 2005, 5:02 AM
Well, it is rather appropriate that it takes so long, assuming it is indeed an Eievui. They take a friggin' long time to hatch in the games.

Fizban
20th December 2005, 7:43 AM
Also, Eevee's various evolutions are symbolic of the many possible futures. It is only logical that a baby Eevee would be a portal into the past.

But I kid.

For some reason, I keep reading this as "May Deliciously Travels Through Time". It will be good to see how May and Meowth interact together. If some of the people in the past freak out because Meowth could talk I'd be even happier.

Gaiash
20th December 2005, 11:40 AM
you know what would be amusing. If the time May travels to is classic Pokemon where she meets the original Ash and co, or at least spots them. But I doubt it would happen, yet it would be amusing.

Larvitar also hatched the episode after Ash received its egg, so May's new Pokemon is already long overdue.

I agree, I believe that the egg will hatch and if all goes well and the writers decide to stop being stupid, we might just get a Wartortle...

Also, I don't think it's Team Rocket's balloon because the basket May, Meowth and Squirtle are in is a tan color while Team Rocket's is a green color. But we'll soon find out 'cause it airs in Japan tomorrow. =0
