    Those episodes were only "dark" because they took place at night. We mean dark in a metaphoric sense.

    Galactic definitely needs to be focused on soon, though the anime';s depiction of made-up villains like Harley seem to outdo their renditions of other villains from the games, like Archie and Maxie.

    Looks great from teh pics, but you can't tell that much from them, so I'll give a full opinion later.

    But just from the pics, J looks awsome; she better make at least 3 more times & team up with Team Galactic at least once.

    But....why was hse freezing pokemon? Just for her own pleasure?

    the mountains are the same colour always.
    Well, yeah...mountains usually have a habit of not putting on makeup and changing color, last time I checked.

    I was expecting some deep villain and drama but it was all a couple of explosions
    Well, yeah, expecting that in Pokemon was idiotic. And yes, that includes Season 1.


    Anyway, I was surprised they left Absol frozen for the whole time, and was wondering if Gardevoir was even gonna save it...oh well, we almost lost an emo...ah, wth, probably would be better without it.

    Drapion = cool. I like him so much bettter then Garde and Kirlia. Seeing Ariados kick *** was cool as well, and was Golbat.

    hopefully, with J's subsequent appearances, this would make up for that horrific incident that happened to Harley's Ariados in Yamabuki City.

    Damn, honestly, I was going into this episode with some pretty low expectations. I mean, several (anime original) villians aside from Rocket Dan's MusaKoji trio have appeared before, but no matter how evil and intelligent they seemed, they always got stopped short in their plans and ended up getting captured the very episode (or movie) they premiered in, subsequently causing them to disappear into obscurity like so many other one-shots. Ryou (incidentally, another Pokemon Hunter, and he appeared around the beginning of the last series), Vicious, Hanzou, even Yamato and Kosaburou failed in their premiere episode (you know... before Housou turned them into a joke mirroring MusaKoji). Bashou, Buson, Shiranui, and Domino proved to be exceptions (but for some reason, they never got to appear again sans the former three's brief cameo at the beginning of movie 9), but in any case, I was just expecting J to be the same as all those other one-shots.

    Instead, I get a villain that doesn't get herself captured so easily, and actually proved to be pretty competent (she didn't even waste her breath on Satoshi until she took notice of Pikachu's strength, she was able to notice things like the door being cracked open, and she didn't fall for, and/or just plain wasn't interested in, Nyaasu saying he could help her capture Pokemon by understanding their feelings. Plus, tying up Kojirou before he even released Masukippa was all kinds of badass ^^), as well as friggin' cold-hearted (cutting off the damage third sector of her plane, completely unconcerned over her subordinates while stating she'll search for a different Sirnight and Absol). It was also nice to see her Pokemon as being anything but weak (something tells me that if this were pre-AG, her Drapion would be taken out by Satoshi's current team, no matter how weak it is right now, with almost zero effort). Best of all, a very good indication that she'll be making return appearances. ^^

    Man, first a damn good, frequently-appearing (better than Shigeru, at least) rival for Satoshi, and now the possibility of a competent, recurring villain? Diamond/Pearl doesn't seem to be pulling any stops, does it?

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    I translate for #Pocketmonsters (just because I know Japanese does not make me Japanese, stop PMing me).

    It was good to J as a threat. For some reason team magma/aqua never seemed threatful enough. Just an opinion but J's introduction is far better then the introduction Team Magma/Aqua got.

    I like her pokemon as well, Ariados, Salamence, Drapion.

    I thought the animation was very good in this episode.

    Notice this is one of the few episodes where Takeshi didn't go gaga over he local Jenny. Either something had to get to cut for time, the writers realised the situation was too serious for such a scene, that Officer Jenny was a fake or Greggle's been asking for too much money...

    This episode is love. Easily the best one in years.


    I bet she'll make deals to supply Team Galactic with stolen Pokémon at some point.

    You don't know a good villain when you see one. Besides, the writers might put Galactic in the tenth movie instead.

    ^^ Yeah they most likely will because Team Galactics plot revolves around Palkia/Dalgia and they will be starring in the 10th movie. I think that is BETTER then them appearing in the anime.

    I forgot who said it but I agreed that made up villains are better handled in the anime then the villains in the games. Look at the miserable treatment Team Magma/Aqua got. The movie will handle the plot of the legendaries and the evil team.
    Besides Pokemon Hunter J and her crew were handled great, they've proven to be more of a threat then any other villain group to grace the show.

    Wow, just wow, never I seen such an awesome episode im a while, it just kept going on and on, nonstop action. This tops all the other DP episodes I seen so far. I was actually loved every second of the episode, not liked, loved.

    J was just cold hearted, and did not give a rat *** about anyone, her personality was just like whoa, and for one thing, she actually smarter then most villians, but don't know how long that status would last. The stoned thing is genius, but one thing came to my mind. Yes I know it is a cartoon, but how in the hell the Pokemon breathe in stone? There not dead since there is a controller there, but it bugged me a bit.

    Ash and Team Rocket working together was another surprise. No questions, hesitations, they just do it, do what needs to be done.

    And the biggest surprise came to this episode is that Brock does not flirt with anyone in this episode. Not the girl or Officier Jenny. In a way, that was good since it would kill the whole episode flow.

    I'm done, but this episode surprised me all that I was expecting.

    Animation=Awsome! Just want to get that out of the way

    -Twas nice seeing another Gardivoir, but I was a bit surprised they jumped right into the action.

    -Wow, J is focused, barely bats an eyelash at Ash & co. I like her design too.

    -Dorapion is one big pokemon. Me likey

    -I liked how quickly J thought to "capture" pikachu; once again, didn't bat an eyelash

    -I like how Seviper got in on the Motto. Just a small touch but made me smile.

    -Didn't even throw the ball before string shot'd!

    -Ash & co. not even noticing TR tied to the boulder made lauigh for soem reason. Not the first tiem they did it, but it was just...humerous. Then their reactiosn to the big ship(cloacking FTW!)

    -Ah, she really is quite evil! She stones the pokemon then sells them! Poor Teddiursa(cuddles mine).

    -I liked the Mewoth scene in general

    -Don't get waht Kirlia was doing

    -ARCANINE!

    -I think TR & Ash are breaking some law of physics to stay liek that on the car.

    -AIPOM!

    -Hm, Meowth was a schemin, but I guess it backfired.

    -CA_RAZY AIPOM VS DORAPION!

    -FIGHT! Oh, and Turtwig.

    -OOooh, crafty Aipom. Though it seems to be a magical expanding air vent. Seems pretty samll but can fit Jessies & James.

    -Ah, pokemon. It seems that if an attack meets with anything it creates an explosion. I'll call it the Pokemon Theory of Relative Combustive Discharge.

    -Hey! A golbat did something!

    -I like that whilst A,P,J,J & M were rejoicing, Aipom was freeing Gards in the background(yet completely ignorded Absol). Gotta love small touches.

    -& Gardi saves the day(and Absol)! Heh, never noticed how symetrical they are.

    -We'd better se J again. At least once with TG, assumiong they decide to make a role in the show.

    It was decent enough, though not quite "awesome".

    That's because unlike practically every other female in this series, she has no eyelashes. 0_o

    Did they even bother giving a name to filler girl? Or did I just not catch it on either of my two watches of the episode? (I'm going to call her Pinky in the meantime. Because her hair is pink. Bloody genius, I tell you.)
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Think of them being in a cryogenic suspended motion.

    I should have guessed that a villain as formidable and no-nonsense as the Hunter would never be defeated so easily. Then again, I'm not surprised seeing that every "real" villlain would make Jessie, James and Meowth look like a joke.

    Wow. Just wow. The only tragedy is that Gardevoir got so little to do. When is it going to battle!?! And who knows, Hikari's fondness for Kirlia could indeed be a sign...

    According to the credits, Maria was filler girl.

    Anyway, the way Turtwig slung those Razor Leafs at the baddies when they were crawling through the vent gave it a little more "bad-assity"

    It was psychically scanning the area to find out where J and everyone went, then telepathically showing the gang the location. It finally collapsed from the strain.

    That was pretty good. DP season has been entertaining so far. J is one of the first real "bad" villains of the series. I just hope we don't see the magma/aqua treatment for her.

    EDIT: I was hoping the filler girl gave kirlia to SOMEONE in the group so we can see Erureido action.
