Thread: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon - Time & Darkness Expedition (022)

  1. #51

    Thumbs down Very, Very Bad.

    It was cute, but there were very few other redeeming features to this episode. I was disappointed.

    I have never played either of the games, so I'm not one to judge, but I can tell that they did the same thing as the last one and only showed the very first mission of the game. I know it's only a half-hour special, but they could have at least showed snippets of the game. This time they bared a little of the plot, but not enough for it to be interesting, or even for it to seem relevant.

    I will admit that they didn't water it down as much in this episode as they did in the previous one. The first two MD games were much more serious than the main franchise, but the episode was basically geared towards five-year-olds. Assuming that Time and Darkness are the same, this one made more sense. Plus the English voice actors didn't sound like they all had a cold this time.

    What really bugged me that this was pretty much structured in the exact same way as the episode: Pokemon A meets Pokemon B on beach. Pokemon B says he used to be a human and is not believed. Pokemon A takes Pokemon B with him and they join a team. Pokemon C is concerned about their sibling and the AB team go into a dungeon to help Pokemon C's sibling. On the way they meet Team DEF, who has been beaten up by Pokemon G. Team AB goes and battled Pokemon G, wins, and saves the sibling.

    That is what happened in BOTH of the episodes. Come on, guys, you can be a little more original. You don't have to let the games constrain you that much.

    I'll just summarize this: it was painfully obvious that this was just a marketing ploy to make you buy the games. Try harder next time.

    EDIT: OK, I have to give them credit for the Totoro reference in the opening theme. That was nice.

    I was stunned speechless when I heard Grovyle's voice.
    It just didn't seem right.
    And I didn't imagine Chatot's voice like that, but it was okay.
    I thought Wigglytuff was a boy, but I guess I was wrong.

    It should be a series though.

    Actually, the Shinx mission is a wi-fi/password mission. It's not found in the game during the storyline.

    Anyway I'd have to say, they did a pretty good job on the voices. The only one I didn't like was Wigglytuff, but I kind of knew he'd have a bad voice.

    I liked the Mystery Dungeon episode. I wish they would make a show off of it.
    My favorite part was when Gabite used Attract on Sunflora.
    I thought it was weird that Wigglytuff sounded like a girl. Isn't it a boy?

    I didn't like this special any better than the first one. Honestly, I like the normal episodes because they're good for all ages, not these Mystery Dungeon episodes that make me feel like I'm watching a Nick Jr. show.

    That being said, this episode was better than "Team Go-Getters", but it still grates on my nerves. The only one I really liked in the whole special was the corphish. That guy who does Professor Nanba has a great voice, I'll give him that.

    Nope. Not Team Razor Wind. I'm kinda glad that no one was able to guess who I was. It makes me feel more like a vocal chameleon. The unfortunate side effect is that no one knows that I've done what I've done.

    I wish they made a PMD animated series, instead of just 2 specials

    I love the PMD specials, they should make it into a series. Attract was hilarious, Sunflora cracked me up so much!
    nothing lasts forever, but this is getting good now.

    Does anyone have this special on DVD? If so, is there a region encoding on it?

    I hated Sunflora so much. It was really annoying throughtout the special. Personally, I like Dawn's Piplup better than this one.

    Can someone explain to me the thing about Piplup and Grovyle being from the future. Was Grovyle a human as well? Because he said a few things that made it seem like he was. First he said that he and Piplup had study the unown text in the future, and He also said that when he first arrived in the planet he enjoyed the sunset. I haven't played the game so I don't really know what is going on there.

    Once again we take a trip in to the world of the Pokemon Rescue Teams, this time with a Chimchar, Piplup, & Sunflora. Nice seeing Maddie Blaustein and Rachael Lillis return to lend their vocal talents. It was a good episode, I like how they purposely design them so you want to play the game to find out more about the story.

    It was very good. Much closer to the actual games than the first PMD special at least.

    Liked that Piplup, Chimchar, and Sunflora teamed up to aid Shinx's sister. Gabite being voiced by Billy Beach was expected. He voices every other character nowadays.

    I liked that Meowth's 4Kids VA returned to voice Chatot. Her last Pokemon dubbing job...R.I.P Maddie. 9/10

    Great episode, i loved to see how Chimchar and Piplup handle well vs the Gabite.

    And i liked to see the Sunflora.
