    This episode has already been subbed, and it's really good. I liked it, especially those lines from Byron.

        Spoiler:- Byron's lines:


    Yeah...those were great. Roark as a kid is also cute, although he kinda looks like a girl.

    I watched this episode raw, not subbed, and I want to know. Why was Roark upset with his dad? Did he leave the family or something in that flashback?

    Roark was upset with Byron because his dad is actually from Oreburgh and used to be the leader of the Oreburgh City Gym. Then Byron got called away to become the leader of Canalave City Gym and left the gym to Roark. By the way Roark was talking, Byron apparently didn't talk to Roark or his wife about it at all, he told Roark just before he left.

    Ath the end Roark was happy with Byron again because Byron still had the fossil that Roark had given him as a kid, it was his first fossil. And Roark felt better with him because Byron cherished that fossil most and regarded it has his most important, apparently.

    in the end, roark and byron realized that they should stop arguing because no matter what happens, they are still family. ash and company realized the value of family too, and made them want to be with their parents at the moment.

    anyways... roark's kid voice is so cute. i think he was 10 by that time sice he was 20 at the present time.

    That was actually my first raw episode, I'm going to start watching them that way for now on.

    I just don't like how sometimes you can't understand it, so it gets boring.

    The next ep won't have much dialogue, so I'll continue watching.

    You'd think we'd see Roark's mom in this.

    What are you talking about, no one won. Team Rocket interrupted the battle.
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    The good guys won. Obviously... <_< >_>

    In all honesty, I was expecting more from this episode. Roark and Byron make up a long-standing family greivance because Byron kept a fossil? Seriously?

    Man, I wish my family worked like that... although if any of them started going wacko with a shovel, I think I'd call the funny farm. :P

    They didn't start using any Japanese BGM until Rampardos and Bastiodon were sent out of their PokeBalls. On the bright side, it was nice hearing the GSC trainer battle music.

    And either the referee is Cyrus in disguise (for some reason), or the character designers have gone too far in making certain characters look like others.

    (Also, there's an "s" at the end of "Matter", not that I care much.)

    I did like the lines,

    Roark: "Just because you're my dad doesn't mean I'll go easy on you!"
    Byron: "Just because you're my son doesn't mean I won't whoop ya'!"

    Good episode so far. Byron's voice scares me though...

    EDIT: Team Rocket Grunt Meowth sent out Robotmon!
    Robotmon used Rock Throw!
    It's not very effective...

    I enjoyed watching the intense tension between Byron and son. They really made a parallel to Brock and his dad and they even referenced it. I think that Byron is being played by Dan Green but I don't know. Byron had a pretty funny line when he said "Whoop ya."

    Byron seems to have a fetish for holes, especially the very well dug ones. He has such a strong fetish that he didin't even realize that his rare Pok&#233;mon fossils were stolen. Even when they found Team Rocket he started talking about hole digging rather than trying to get his fossils back. The touching moment at the end was pretty nice and it was all due to a Sunkern fossil. Now, it's time for the battle.

    Wow, what a pretty awesome episode. I've been waiting a while for this episode to arrive, and I wouldn't change it any other way. Byron was awesome, as I thought, and he started getting hilarious with the holes and the shovels. :P What a funny guy.

    I'd give it around a 9/10.

    I cant wait to see the Battle next week. (Though, I got to record it since there's the Tourney)

    That episode kept my eyes on the TV. The battle between Roark and Byron, which I can't shake the feeling was voiced by Dan Green, was pretty good. It was Gym Leader vs. Gym Leader, Father vs. Son, Fossil Digger vs. Fossil Digger.

    A great episode indeed. Father and son rivalry, but a close bond with fossils. A sunkern fossil? What's next, a fossil pokemon game excavating ancient pokes from the earth? also, i will rewatch it later today since i missed a little bit of the first 7 minutes.

    Cute ep. I liked Byron's quirky persona but he def. sounded like he needs a throat lozenge! =P Plenty of jokes and action combined. And I love that Dawn & friends wanted to call home and check in on family after seeing Roack v. Byron. <3
    While there were elements of Pewter City (which the writers acknowledge) enough of the plot felt fresh and inspired rather than something they pulled out of a hole in the ground... er, you know what I mean. XD

    Pretty good episode. I didn't like how the battle between Roark and Byron was mainly Zen Headbutt and Iron Defense at first though. Shame TR interrupted.

    This episode was actually better than I had initially expected. It was hilarious when Byron was talking about TR's holes. Overall, this episode was very interesting. Although, Byron's voice was uh......interesting, I guess.

    It was a great episode. I laughed with Byron and the hole thing. (Plus his voice was sexy) Nice backstory with Rorak.

    I loved this episode, mainly because now I can understand everything. Bryon was flat out hilarious through the whole the thing. From his cockiness on the battle field to his reaction to Team Rockets holes. The relationship between him and Roark was really well done. Byron might be my new favorite Sinnoh Gym Leader.
    I also loved all the GSC music during the battle sequences.

    9/10

    Yawn.

    I'm sorry, this was a very nice episode, it's just... the wait for the gym battle is really starting to grate, and it's making it hard for me to enjoy this fully. I know, I know, Pokemon is mostly filler. I'm used to it. But this is getting rediculous. There's being suspenseful and even going a little over for humor and then there's just being annoying. Instead of this episode making my LIKE Byron very much (thought it did a little at the end), it made me a tad annoyed because he's starting to seem rather irresponsible.

    Also, wanting your son to grow my abandoning your wife to raise him herself does not compute well for me.

    Good episode, but I find it hard to care. One "YOU CAN'T BATTLE HIM YET" episode too many. Gym battle plz. Call me impatient (and hypocritical, since I liked both Sleepless in pre-battle and Get your Rotom Running and would not want either to be gone) but UGH. I'm not sure what my problem is...

    ....Or it may be that I just watched the new TFA, which was the probable series finale and massively awesome, so watching another filler may be hard for me after that. Okay, maybe that's it.

    Anyways, even if I'm going crazy waiting for the gym battle, this was still a very nice episode.
