    How could you not know that? Lucian is a male name. He doesn't even have a female figure.

    Just because they didn't pronounce it the way you do doesn't mean it's wrong. There's nothing wrong with that pronunciation. I've heard both before. And considering how it's spelled, the pronunciation is ambiguous.

    I like the way Buizel fights. His fighting skills kind of reminds me of Sasuke Uchiha from Naruto.

    I did not state his name was completely wrong
    I stated that I thought his name was pronounced Lu-si-an.
    If they pronounce his name Lu-shan, thats fine. I just dont like how they pronounce it. I certainly dont hate it though. It is ambiguous, I agree. Lets try not to get this into a full-out debate however.

    Ok. This is kinda where I had issues with this episode.

    First - Lucian makes it sound like you had to be a native of the Sinnoh region in order to challenge the Elite 4. I didn't think it was explained well enough at all.

    Second - Right now (don't know about the future), Buizel is Dawn's Pokemon, yet when it was depressed, she didn't do anything to try and cheer it up. Ash and Lucian did!

    Other than that (unfortunately they were kind of key points of this episode), this was a pretty good episode. Don't know what it sounded like as Dotakun, but Bronzong sounded pretty good. The Buizel/Croagunk moments were cute too.

    I liked the ep, the plot was great it and was interesting that they focused on Buizel. I thought it was good to have an ep that focused on Buizel. It was newly added to the team and they had to portrait him in an ep, wgich they did great.

    About Buizels strength, well he did fought a Pokemon trained by an Elite Four, of course he would lose. The part were they explanined what had to be done in order to be über champion/Master was great. I think that foreshadowed the future of the shows plot.

    To the writers of pokemon MAKE Ash's pokemon evolve. Squirtle and Bulbasaur should have evolved a long time ago.

    That's the funniest title I knew of, " An Elite Meet and Greet". That's because Hikari(Dawn) challenges Lucian and his Bronzong using her Buizel, traded by Ash after some episodes. Keep it going, Dawn! Your Buizel can do it(if it learned a powerful move)!

    This episode made me think of the Jerk Charizard era, with the not-so-experienced Ash having the ultra-strong Charizard that wouldn't obey him. At least Buizel's uncooperative period is thankfully short, but I couldn't help feeling glad that he got his butt handed to him on a stick by Lucian in the first match. At least things improve by the end.

    Oh my goodness. I hate Lucian's voice. With a fiery passion so agonizing that it hurts. D:

    Aside from that flaming dislike, the episode itself was okay overall. Buizel's personality was really shown off well ^^ lol, the best line was Ash, "Oh man, when you get stared down by Croagunk and nothing happens, then it's really serious!" Truer words were never spoken ^^

    seeing Lucian the top elite four member being introduced early was great to see. although im not so sure about his characteristic. he jus seems normal and boring

    Apart from Lucian's voice, this episode was alright. Dawn challenging an Elite Four Member was surprising, but welcome nonetheless. Buizel's rather strong in this episode against Bronzong.

    it surprised me that buizel was so strong in this episode, afterall it was against an E4 member.

    oh well it was a nice episode for the rest.

    I thought Buizel put up a good fight considering it was against an Elite 4 Pokemon.

    It only took eleven freakin' years, but we finally got our damn explanation about how the Elite 4 operates in the anime. Past Elite 4 members only really showed up for the sake of putting Satoshi in his place, only to never show up again. And while Goyou does the same to Buizel & Hikari here, we get actual insight into the E4 challenge and Champion that acts as potential but not definitive foreshadowing. I really do think it would be unfortunate if this build-up were all for nothing, but it was nice that after a decade of speculation, we finally learned how the quartet is challenged. And Goyou is a pretty cool guy, as was Dotakun quite literally pulling tricks out of its ***.

    One thing that does disappoint me is that we see a potential rivalry between Greggle and Buizel here (you can see the hype regarding it in the earlier posts here), but it was never brought up again once. It's a shame as it could have proved quite interesting. It's also funny to see how people pegged Buizel as Hikari's version of disobedient Lizardon, when in reality, her version would come much later in the saga. My other minor complaint is that once TR enters the picture, the episode morphs into familiar E4 episode territory and ends fairly typically. But it's a pretty solid episode up until that point, and while the battle was basically a slaughter, it wasn't over in a flash or anything.

    B+
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Oh god, it took me forever to find this episode. >>

    I liked it though. It was nice to see Lucian, though I did not like his voice. Like Wallace and Steven, his voice didn't match his character (or at least what I had expected); I think he (and the other two) should have had softer voices.

    And I never realized until recently, but Buizel is adorable. ; 3;
