    Where does it say that Jindai has the legendary birds?

    He's probably confusing the game with the anime. Brandon fights you with Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres when you go for the Gold Bravery symbol.

    Since there's no summary on the Serebii site, what did Jessie say throughout the whole episode?

    BTW, how good was Anabel's dub voice?

    Well, her hair's roughly the same shade as James's hair(and he's male, for those of you slow on the uptake), and her clothes are fairly unisex(guys are perfectly allowed to wear purple, as Drew demonstrates, and the design in general doesn't really point one way or the other...nor does that hairdo), and she doesn't really have a chest, and I doubt that typical "female" anime eyelashes would stick out that much to the characters, so...

    The twerps couldn't tell Anabel was a girl.... that was weird beyond belief. Yes, I can see how they'd be mistaken, but Anabel sounds like a girl if anything else. Her voice actor did a pretty good job. It's interesting to see that she could understand pokemon in a way, it reminded me of the guy from "The Poke-Spokesman". The battle between Anabel and Ash was something else too. Usually Ash when Ash gets beaten, both sides go through all their pokemon before the match ends, but Anabel didn't even get to her third pokemon before it ended. That was different.

    Overall the episode was pretty good, but I'm looking forward more to part two next week. I can't wait for the part with Ash/Corphish/Tauros's freakout.

    7/10 for me. At least Tuesday I'll get to see the Deoxys special finally.

    This was a great episode. As far as Anabel's voice goes, I left my thoughts about that where it belongs. Not major trouble though. It was nice to finally know what Anabel was saying to her pokemon with her telepathy (watched the Japanese version months earlier). What really knocked Ash down was that he became overconfident again, and he forgot to keep his cool. Didn't he learn not to do that from his battle with Drake of the elite four? As far as I'm concerned, Anabel really likes/loves trainers who are willing to go the extra mile to protect their pokemon from harm. Good for you! Now if only Jessie could learn that.

    I think they did a good job with Anabel. It was rather important to give her a voice that didn't immediately betray her gender, and that was done decently. But I do agree that the whole thing about how she "only senses the feelings of Pokemon" was a load of crap, because anyone could see that she was clearly talking to them telepathically. As others have already mentioned, I also liked how they even kept Anabel's "Go, my friend!" from the Japanese version.

    All in all, a good episode. This is my favorite Battle Frontier stop for the sole reason of Anabel's unique ability, and how she and Ash interact.

    Yup, I agree, Anabel sounded great. But I'm surprised Ash and the others didn't know she was a girl, until she told them. That seemed... very strange. It was obvious by her voice that she would be a girl. o.O

    Can't wait for the next episode where Ash has his re-match

    I was glad with the voice they gave Anabel! It was just right for her. It was proberbly the best voice I heard that was done with a new character since the new voice actors started. But other then that, I thought that this episode was a good one because it was about time Ash lost a match! And im glad it was to Anabel, especially because she had a metagross! And it would have been pretty impresive if pikachu won the match by beating all of Anabel's pokemon but it would have been a pretty quick and lame match too. So yeah 9/10 from me for this episode as it wasn't rushed and Ash finally lost to another metagross trainer.

    This wasnt a bad episode, compared to Three Jynx and a Baby. I must say, I was not at all expecting Anabel's voice to sound like that. Maybe like a cross between Misty's voice and perhaps Lucy's voice(to give it a little bit of age), but otherwise it didnt bother me. Actually, it took me a while but i finally figured it out, Anabel's voice sounds strangely similar to Barbara's voice(Queen of the Serpentine). The only thing that i hate is how they couldnt admit that she was using Telepathy. It was blatantly obvious.

    The funniest part was when Ash(or anyone else for that matter), realised that she was a girl. I have to admit, if you look hard enough for a while, she does look sort boyish, which might sorta explain it. Though i am sorta finding it repetitive how they do the, "meet-gym leader(frontier brain)-before-battle" thing.

    I found Meowth's remark about the stupidity of humans to be pretty good.

    edit: Im starting to suspect PUSA is starting to get lazy in using soundtracks from the movies(Heroes and Pikachu's Rescue Adventure). Though i could have temporarily sworn that some of the music in this episode had some from Pokemon 2000 at parts.

    Why do the writers portray Ash as incredibly dense anyway?

    Other than that, I liked Metagross's Iron Defense. Why can't the writers have Torkoal do that?

    I just watched the episode and it wasn't too bad, although I couldn't understand anything that the ever stupid Team Rocket was saying throughout the ep.

    I like the fact that despite being an obvious fan of Anabel, the only thing you could think of commenting on were the characters you seem to hate. Again.
    And I've gotta say, that's pretty damn pathetic.

    Huh? The entire group, (including Brock of all people) thought Anabel was a boy too.

    Dude, these are the kids who are fooled by Team Rocket (the demonic spawns of Lucifer and Hell itself, who eat children, and sacrafice virgins under the full moon!) when they put on glasses, and have the big red "R" visible right under there coat!

    I dunno who these guys are though.....

    WHOA! Who are they??? If you don't think that's a good disguise, then what is?

    They made a rather big deal about Ash losing at the end, the narrator was like "omgz anovver lose added to ashs long list!!!!111" but you have to admit, it was a rather bad lose. He only just about managed to defeat Alakazam. Has Ash ever won against a Psychic type? They're just about uber in the anime. I know that Ash couldn't win against Sabrina, he had to get Haunter to explode a bomb in her face to get the badge.

    There was one episode in the orange islands where it there was a double battle. It was a hotel battle or something by some lady. Anyway, it was pikachu and charizard against alakazam and marowak. Ash won.

    Ash's Snorlax has also beaten Harrison's Hypno in the Johto League's Silver Confrence.

    Back on topic, this episode is defenitely highlighted because it sets up the motion that goes on into another episode (instead of beating her the first time or within one episode). This episode (and others like it) just goes to prove that the writers can say about Ash is that he's not perfect and learns from his mistakes.

    The whole telepathy/sensing pokemon's feelings thing with Anabel really passed over my head. I think I can accept the whole thing with the dub about her sensing pokemon feelings because they only show her using telepathy with HER pokemon- not Pikachu, not gyarados, not beedrill. Call it dub vs. original, call it dumbed down, call it whatever you want, but I think the way they protrayed it onscreen matched the dub more closely. It would go along with the whole thing they have constantly on the show about trainers getting to know their pokemon well over time, which would fit with Anabel and her pokemon and how they communicate.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but the whole Ash and co mistasking Anabel for a boy is probably a pun on her being flat-chested (not to offend her or her fans or anything).

    This one and the next episode are my favourite ones in the whole of Season 9 so far. And I have absolutely no idea why. Maybe it's Ash getting beaten (at last), maybe it's the telepathy, maybe it's the fact that Ash is now even DUMBER about love than before, but these episodes ruled. Anabell is the only Fronteir Brain I would want to return. But I haven't seen Brandon's episode yet.
    Brilliant news. Toonami UK have (finally) got around to showing Pokemon: Battle Frontier (Season 9). Starts Monday at 5pm.

    (sarcastically)Thanks for the compliment.

    As for the ep, it was one of best eps (and a personal fav of mine).

    BTW. the only thing I found annoying beside you-know-who (Team Rocket FYI), was May in the dub. Her voice tone was horrible.

    Yay we got to see Tauros again. A nice refreshing battle it was for sure

    Tauros was a good sight to see. About time Ash used one of the thirty. Anabel's a rather nice character.

    And Advance Adventure was played, which is also great.
