    EDIT: Just saw the episode, and my previous statement still stands. This was EPIC.

    And Cynthia-Croagunk interaction was AWESOME and FRIGGIN HILARIOUS.

    I watch this episode. I learn that Paul is not a newbie and he been to Kanto, Jhoto, and Hoenn. I also learn that his starter was Turtwig. The battle was awesome. It's kind of hard to beleive that he a long term trainer. He treat pokmon so bad. Cynthia was awesome at battling. Her Garchomp was awesome. I love the battle. I just can't wait to watch in english. But I wonder what Paul did in the other regions?

    Someone mentioned the text on the Dialga and Palkia plaque was simmilar to a line in the games in the Solaceon ruins about Spiritomb (meeting people, 32 exactly, you get him) and since Cynthia has one in the games she's probably on her way to get one.

    It would be great to know more about more of Pauls pokemons, and Ash's left behind pokemons like pidgeot, butterfree, primape and more, hope he atleat brings one back for his journey in shinou .

    It’s from the 8th movie Sushi, though it sort of jumps ahead from time to time. Y’know the part where everyone first encounters Regirock after bursts out from underground? It sort of plays the first couple of seconds from the piece, then sort of skips to the point where Registeel stomps on one of Kid’s ickle drill robots.
    ….Hmm. When someone is capable of pointing out something like that, you just know they’re a Grade ’A’ geek.


    Anyhow, this one proved itself to be enjoyable.
    I loved the battle, despite the fact that all it really amounted to were a bunch of quick knock-outs. It’s very rare to see a battle in the show where one side’s team faces complete decimation, and usually when it does happen, the methods that lead to the conclusion are often less than satisfactory. This time however, there was a rhyme and a reason for one side’s defeat, and as such it was believable. So props to the writers for handling that well. Especially Shinji’s reaction to Frenzy Plant being completely ineffective against Garchomp :P
    I also like how, since we first met Shinji, it's become increasingly obvious that something is brewing between him and Hiko. He's the only pokémon we've seen Shinji openly scold on more than one occasion, inside and out of it's pokéball, so they've definitely building up to some sort of ~:exciting plot point:~. Hiko turning on Shinji? An event that brings trainer and pokémon together? I can't wait to see it unfold, even if it'll more than likely culminate into the dreaded 'nicening' of Shinji.

    And damn. Sky Attack certainly was downgraded in the looks department. The move doesn’t exactly live up to it’s (original!) name. Speaking of which; Here’s to God Bird vs. Muku.GOD in the distant future.
    Because I couldn't exit this thread without saying it ~

    Not seen this episode yet, but finding out Shinji isn't a starting trainer but one that's travelled several regions before is interesting. I hope we get flashbacks to his previous adventures... like a flashback to Roxanne.

    Possibly with no clothes on.

    Anyway, not too keen on Cynthia myself at the moment, but this episode sounds good.
    sorry i didn't know it wasnt allowed

    i just tought of doing something nice

    I usually don't watch RAW Japanese episodes because I don't understand a lick of Japanese but I really wanted to see Cynthia in action.

    This is a really good episode mostly because I enjoyed watching Paul getting his a** handed to him by Cynthia! That cocky little rodent's ego must be really brusied. Who did he think he is sending a Chimchar, Weavile, and Murkrow against a Garchomp? Hello?! Her name is "champion" Cynthia for a reason.

    Does anyone know what happened near the end with the clip on the television? I think it had something to do with the legendaries. I heard Dialga's name mentioned in that clip.

    I think they found the Lustrous Orb of Palkia, which is like the Adamant Orb (or really Dialga's Beach Volleyball) that's at Eterna Museum.

    And Yuuka...alone. I was hoping we'd hear a "SUMIMASEN!" before it was all done and said, but I KNOW Sam Sumimasen will grace our presence soon.

    I gotta wonder too what else Paul has in his arsenal of Pokemon. Besides, it makes mroe sense that he beat Ash now, but I still wanna see Ash beat him.

    It was good to see he is beatable, especially since his opponent was Cynthia. I kinda wonder what Cynthia was saying while tending to Paul's Pokemon.

    Plus, Croagunk getting bashful when Cynthia looked at him; CLASSIC. Instant classic scene in the episode.

    Good episode indeed. Finding more info on Paul was great and the battles were awesome. I enjoyed it all around and can't wait for Paul to return.

    I KNEW IT!I EFFING KNEW IT!

    Ehem, sorry. But I just am so happy this episode proved everyone that thought Pual's a newbie wrong. He's been a trainer AT LEAST as long as Ahs has! And it ha sbeen confirmed now.

    Em, er yeah. Yay Cyntiha and Garchomp!

    Was Garchomp female? I didn't notice the split in the dorsal fin that the male Garchomp has. Maybe I'm mistaken...

    So from what I've read and seen so far...

    -Paul's more experienced than most people thought he was(finally, one of the ongoing arguments around here settled)
    -Cynthia doesn't care if she potentially damages priceless ancient tablets by touching them with her bare hands after eating ice cream right next to them. Tsk tsk!
    -Disrespect for priceless ancient writings aside, Cynthia taking an HOUR to decide what flavor of ice cream she wanted is priceless(but neither ancient nor writings on a tablet).
    -See people, THERE'S that Murkrow you kept wanting to see every time Paul appeared! Happy now?
    -Ash apparently sticks up for Paul when people laughed at him? I guess Ash is still a nice guy even towards his worst enemies. Not that that's news.
    -Cynthia's Garchomp abuses Giga Impact in the anime almost as much as it does in the games. Amusing.
    -That's twice now that Ash has just so happened to encounter an E4 member right after seeing them battle on TV. I do hope the writers think of new ways to introduce other E4 members this region, amusing as this could be if they kept with it.

    I think I'd buy the 'he was a trainer in other regions!' more if he had a different third-stage starter. Like a Swampert or something. But Torterra is an awesome pokemon so I am not complaining.

    The battle-scene was okay, but I really like Shinji. And the context of the fight was neat. With Shinji trying so desperately to 'prove himself'. Obviously I couldn't understand what was going on, though. :P

    I liked Garchomp too, and the thing felt really... serious. I dunno why. I do not watch much of the original so maybe it is from so much 4Kids exposure that I assume that Pokemon is silly even in a heated battle.

    Cool so Paul has a Torterra!

    I hope this means Ash won't now not evolve his neatle into one now! If so Neatle better still evolve into his 2nd stage!

    I can't wait to see Ashs and Pauls final battle in the league! Maybe a Torterra vs Torterra Or Torterra vs Serpentile!

    I kinda wish pual had not had a weavile as i HATE weavils look in the anime! He should of had a water type like a crawdaunt or something!

    Finally its gd to see he still has old Ursuring!

    This may seem very far out but I was thinking maybe Paul went into the future by Dialga and Paul stole Ash's Torterra in the future. You think?

    This was a pretty great episode.

    I'm actually going to be really annoyed if the writers don't have Ash win the Sinnoh league this time, because there is massive foreshadowing of him challenging the Elite 4...especially if the other three Elite's show up as well.

    I really want to see Ash battle Cynthia as the conclusion of the D/P series, (and maybe even Ash's arc in general?), and it would be a fantastic final match to watch.

    I just thought of something. If Paul been to all the regions like Ash then I figure Paul must be the old rival from G/S. He even looks like him!

        Spoiler:- Paul G/S:


    See what I mean!

    This episode surprised me, and yes my intentions about Paul is he is not a newbie, thank u! Lots of people who now drawing the conclusion that its broken, omg Ash Turwig won't evolve or Paul abandon Chimchar rumors strarting, I'm not jumping to it right now. Since anything could still happen at this point.

    Cynthia character was interesting, she showed she could be your everyday person who stills enjoys anything like everyone else which I like about.

    The battle was insane, her Garchomp was like a uber POkemon, but in this episode it looked like it was Paul's turn to learn a lesson.

    And wow, a elite and champion around about 6 episodes is something new here.
