    I really want to see the Wallace Cup EPs really bad. All look amazing and I love the contest EP's a whole lot better then the Gym Battle ones. May's cameo is perfect and I love seeing main characters return.

    The episodes look good? How do you know if none of them have aired yet.

    I was kinda confused in the end. Was May in the same Pokemon Center where Ash & the gang are talking, or is she not (she's in Snowpoint then)? If she was in that PC, how come in the Seven Star Restaurant episode, she appeared at a ship in the beginning? Sorry, just confused. ">_<

    Yes, I'm sad to say that from this date, I'm going to be
    COMPLETELY INACTIVE
    . I lost my interest in SPPf,
    and I'm going to be 99% inactive due to iRL things. Bye!

    She was in snowpoint when we saw her, that's why there was snow outside the Pokemon center. And the reason we saw May on a ship is because Snowpoint has harbor.

    I won't complain since, aside from agreeing with you that the appeal was actually very well-done, it's to be expected that Mikuri would have a Milocaross (as it's pretty much his signature Pokemon in the other mediums he appears in).

    The thing that pisses me off about Milocaross isn't so much that it appears too much (though, yes, there's no denying that fact, and it is especially annoying that it constantly comes off as the "end-all, be-all" of Pokemon for contests. I don't care if its evolution is centered around beauty, there are much better-looking Pokemon than that). What really pisses me off is that they're over-showcasing it WHILE making it act like the signature Pokemon for several characters, namely game characters who should be putting more focus on other Pokemon as their signature partners. I mean, it was bullshit that Azami's Habunake was just kinda pushed out of the way by Donphan and the final confrontation was Pikachu vs. Milocaross.... again (seriously, that whole episode would've done a lot better if they'd have just reversed the matches. Would've been nice to see a Habunake take out Pikachu, as well). As for Adan, I don't believe he even owns one in Emerald (hell, it's almost like they just copy/pasted Mikuri's team onto him). And what was wrong with making Kingdra his main? God knows that thing could use a bit more love (being one of many shafted Jouto Pokemon). Hell, if the writers were dealing with Pikachu vs. Kingdra, they probably could've came up with a much more believable win than "little rat manages to throw titanic serpent over his head in mid-air" (they wouldn't have Recover to require such an ass-pull, for one thing).

    Juan's Milotic was the first time we saw one in battle. Robert's Milotic got a grand total of 20 seconds of screentime in the Contests he was in.

    Juan had Milotic for its official "debut," so I don't see how you could complain about that. Its not like the writers had any plans to bring Wallace in at that point, so having Juan debut Milotic seemed like a no-brainer.

    however, they did show a bit more of Robert's Milocaross in action just a few episodes later (and with Emerald's release, they probably knew they'd be adapting the Battle Frontier somehow anyway). But judging by your lack of a counter-argument, I can assume you agree with what I said about the way they over-emphasized Azami's Milocaross. Who wants to bet Shirona will show up later and go "Oh, that Gablias was actually a weakling. This is my best partner... and it's not Lucario!"?

    I can't wait to see this episode. :'D I loved Walalce in RSE, but of course since the series was based off Emerald, I was quite disappointed when he wasn't in the show.

    I'm surprised, they kept the Japanese Sinnoh Now logo instead of changing it to English at the beginning.

    Wallace used to be the Sootopolis Gym Leader.

    The episode really bored me. I don't know why, but every time I watch an episode focusing on Dawn, I always get bored. And I didn't bother looking at the ending of the episode.

    I was surprised when I saw that, too.

    This episode was pretty boring. The only part I like was the part with the news people.
    It's cool to see May again, but I don't like her that much.
    6/10.

    I really liked this episode. I've have been waiting for this episode to come on for a while. It was nice that they kept the logo from the show and that they didn't Wallace's voice sound high or something. Plus, it was nice to see May again. Mainly because I love her voice.

    This episode was good. It was kinda funny when Dawn panicked, ran into all her pokemon’s attacks, and only said “no need to worry”. It was awesome to see one of my favorite water pokemon, Milotic, again as well as seeing Aqua Ring and Dragon Pulse. I find it a little cool how Wallace and Milotic make an awesome exit. I also like May’s return.

    I really enjoyed this episode. The first time Rhonda got hit with the microphone, I was sitting there waiting for him to drop it. I knew it was coming and I just couldn't help but laugh. The camera crew provides great comedy relief when it comes to the show.

    Wallace was cool. I loved the way the characters found him sitting there. The appeal with Milotic was awesome. His exit was cool. And (the reason I've been anticipating this arc so much) May's back!

    Overall, a good episode.

    Now being reposted!

    Can't wait to see this and the rest of the Wallace Cup.
    I still think they should have aired them all together at
    the end of the Labor Day Pokemon-a-ton, that Dungeon
    special was anticlimactic.

    I like that we finally got to see Wallace, and at least they made a brief mention of him being the Sootopolis gym leader once (funny they didn't mention the dapper Juan). I'm surprised they didn't bring up the fact that Ash battled a different gym leader, but ah well.

    There wasn't much to the episode, but I enjoyed the practice battles with Ash and Dawn, and Jessie fawning over Wallace was hilarious. I laughed when she was blowing kisses, and then when James and Meowth grab her she suddenly gets demonic. LOL And hey, May cameo! I can't wait for the next few weeks, I've missed May.

    The one thing that still bugs me is, what is the big deal with milotic? I've never found it to be a beautiful pokemon in the least. It looks like some Loch Ness creation. Now gardevoir, THAT's a beautiful pokemon.

    I think I need to get my priorities straight while noticing things. @_@

    (At the end of the episode, when May's introduced again)
    May: -stands up-
    Me: WOAHSNAP. She's in sub-zero degree climates, and she's wearing SHORTS AND A T-SHIRT? Crazy woman, that is.
    -credits roll-
    Me: ...WOAHSNAP. Hold up. Was that May? -rewinds-

    (true story)

    Loved the episode~ Wallace is too awesome. No Saturn in the ep, though, so lost some points there. e_e
