    So? Adapting an attack strategy from a Frontier Brain is a smart thing to do.

    Considering the time since that episode (Tactics Theatrics), it now seems as if that's become May's own little move. Not only that, but I noticed that Ash seemed to be the first to recognize it. Normally, he's not as swift, but the writers seem to be making him notice things better.

    ... Yes, I did in fact watch this episode.

    I gotta say, I think that May's whole meal obssession was particularly entertaining. Before I go into my "rating" of the episode, I need two things clarified (it'd be more, but for some reason I was able to "understand" things more in this ep. That's highly unusual for me).

    - During the Munchlax search thingy, Why exactly was May somewhat annoyed at the comment by Brock?

    - Did May make some kind of "reservation"? As it seems that she knows not only what the theme of this place is, but it seems the waiter knew that she'd reserved a seat there or something on that level. Help please.

    Anyways, this was actually very entertaining. I liked how she actually brought back souvenirs from Johto to her friends. Even if it was just a reference, its good that she makes mention of her rivals and Max. Glaceon suits her for some strange reason, and it was great to see Blaziken back in action.

    From what the area looked like, they're in that very luxurious hotel area just before Pastoria, right? As this episode is referring to restaurant situated right there too. And that's the same waiter that greets you too, just like the game right? I just want to be sure, since this is a very good game to show rendition.

    Overall, I found it very entertaining that May gets so overly ticked off over food, I never really thought that was possible of her (though Pasta La Vista sort of told me otherwise... Would have been more memorable, but...). I also found it funny that Team Rocket not only stuffed themselves in front of May, but also stole the refrigerator and attempted to "guard" it!

    I also noticed that May was a little dumbfounded by the fact that Team Rocket's motto went through a change... or is something else entirely? Then of course, she found it funny to see Buneary having a crush on Pikachu. Please, when we will see her reaction to Croagunk's Poison Jab on Brock? I absolutely gotta see the look on her face once this happens. Then again, considering how long this is going to be, there's going to be at least one instant where this could happen.

    figured I'd also put the preview for the next episode, if anyone's interested.

    After this is done, I'll be heading over to the Captions Thread to add another slew of captionable pics for the people there.

    Aurevoir!

    They were suprised, Brock said something along the lines of "that's it?" It's not hard to believe that the 2 filler characters were weak considering most tag battles in that resaturant in the game are filled with easy-to-beat trainers.

    Wow, I was actually under the impression that the writers did that typical thing of "speeding things up" where they simply KO the opponents Pokémon in one hit to get to the more important battle. 'Coure, my lack on next to any Japanese comprehension doesn't help much either.

    Okay, so maybe some of my interpretations are improving. And in such short time to. Heh, well, then maybe I could have easily handled the Riolu episode. Oh well, I'll wait till its dubbed.

    Though, I'll probably dl the rest of this arc.

    Before I get into another rant-esque post in the next minute or so, I figured I'd "re-browse" this topic in the event of something that was answered or something that I simply "missed". Well I did find something.

    Quote Originally Posted by Geodude View Post

That makes absolutely no sense, since they had JUST brought out their shared ribbon, a reminder of the contest they had entered together. So why would she be so shocked that he was entering another one? The conversation went very roughly like this:

    Dawn: "Ash is gonna enter the Contest too."
    May: *turns to Ash* "You are?"
    Ash: "Yeah, Wallace suggested I enter with Buizel."
    May: "WALLACE?!"

    So she was shocked because they've already met Wallace.
    Considering the fact that I consider the episode before the three Lugia eps part of it ("Hi, Ho, Silver... Away"), I probably should have watched the Wallace episode before hand, seeing as it's actually part of this. Oh, well I'll learn next time... I hope. I really don't want to become a hypocrite of sorts.

    Next, my "kind of" rant.

    I noticed that in this episode when the show a flashback of May evolving Eevee, well I noticed that she was actually dressed in a parka, with boots and mitts. Which got me thinking: Are the writers going to be smart enough that on the way to Snowpoint, they actually stop by somewhere to pick up winter attire so that they can actually handle the route before Snowpoint? If they are, imagine about 5 to 10 episodes in which they're consecutively wearing winter coats. That would actually be rather (pardon the pun) cool. It'd be like rental winter gear, and on their way out from Snowpoint, they can simply return them.

    That would show some kind of intelligence. If they do do that, I'll be pleasantly impressed.

    I'm not exactly sure how it works either(then again, this is anime), but I just go along with it since it has been done twice before. Once in the Battle Dome when it was used against Ash. And then May used it in the Kanto Grand Festival against Drew. It's nice to see it come up again, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with using someone else's strategy. Ash does that with Dawn's spin move.

    The following are responses to other posts that I didn't add in quotes:
    I'm not sure if May made any reservations, but clearly as a food lover she knew a ton about the restaurant.

    I agree with what some people have said about Ash and Brock winning in one attack is that the writers wanted to focus more on May and Dawn's battle, so they just gave them the knockout win.

    Overall, I really liked this episode, hope the English version doesn't get messed up.

    I wish you were right. I just wish!

    Its really late to 'review' this episode now, but I think I'll do it anyway.

    Every single second of this episode is full of amaze, a really great episode, just like we hoped.

    It was hillarious to see fat TR, especially when Jessie was using lipstick, after all of that, she still cares about her lipstick? XD Too bad Mime Jr. Wasn't there...

    I was kinda scared to see fire-type May, especially the last time when she talked in the possed-like voice. Scary...

    It was really cool to see May is doing well in Johto (not much of a wonder, I always though she's doing that), her ribbons were cool too. Did anyone notice the design of her ribbons and the design of the old ribbon Johanna gave to Dawn look just the same. I could see that easily because they were in the same epiosde as well.

    The tag battle of Ash and Brock wasn't that bad, although it looked a bit awkard to see the trainers lose so easily.

    I always thought May and Dawn will go along pretty well, which they did. I was happy to see Dawn wasn't jealous at all in the ribbon interaction .

    The tag battle of May and Dawn was nothing but awesomeness, Blaziken and Piplup look cool together. What was the name of Piplup-Blaziken shipping again?

    I think thats all I have now, I'll post later if something new comes to my head. Go May! Win the Wallace Cup!

    I liked the episode, not the best, not the worst one. It was okay. I was disappointed that Glaceon didn't do anything important.

    I was totally amazed by Gonbe, why? It's the first time I hear the pokemon's japanese voice.

    Blaziken... am I the only one that misses Combusken? Combusken and Swellow were my favorite things in Hoenn and now seeing Blaziken it's just not the same. I miss Combusken,a lot.

    Well, I believe Beautifly has important part in the Wallace Cup, or it wouldn't be here. As MistyFanboi13 said:

    I wanna see this EP!! It sounds awesome and I love when people return from previous seasons. I wish May would stay with Ash & Co... ah, well, wishes don't always come true.

    I'm glad May is doing well, and I love her Team. *faints at the sight of Glaceon.*

    Tell ya, though, my brother wasn't happy when I told him May's Eevee evolved. He loves Eevee and hates to evolve it.

    It seems like May has a very developed team now. And she got an outfit change. Maybe Ash was holding her back....

    I wish that Glaceon had a bigger role....

    Yup. Definately. I can't wait to see what happens to Dawn

    I wish that Glaceon had a bigger role....
    Me too. Everyone loved Eevee, and wanted it to evolve. Now that it did, it doesn't even get a better part... :'[
