    Default Saving the World from Ruins (579)

    The Hidden Ruins of Iron Island!

    With Team Galactic's efforts getting stronger and stronger and not even Riley's Lucario being immune to their influence, Ash & co. face one of their toughest trials yet. With all the admins trying to utilise the special attributes of the ruins on the island to eventually awaken Dialga & Palkia, Ash & Co. have to stop them. Will they succeed?

    Looking over some pics on 2chan...

    * Regi AND Staraptor! Ooops, I meant Reggie and his Staraptor. And also a Kricketot are shown for some reason. I guess everyone in Sinnoh probably can see that huge beam

    * No Chimchar, no Riolu egg, no nothing of that kind.

    * I don't exactly understand what happened by looking at the pictures, but it seems the TG Arc is heating up.

    ALSO...look who's in this picture:


    PLUTO! Besides that, you can also spot the various lakes on the monitors. Seems TG is ready to go after them now.

    Pluto appearing is nice, although it raises the question of why Rotom has already been shown when the character most associated with it was going to be introduced less than ten episodes later.

    A different backstory mayhap?

    Looks like Operation Pixie is in full swing now.

    Lucario: "Voices in my head! Voices in my head!"
    Dude, this was a fairly violent episode. Lucario was essentially hell-bent on killing Riley.

    And of course, who shows up to ruin the rescue party? Why, it's no other than our good hard-headed friend, STEELIX! The writers just know we can't get enough of this guy. Showing up in 3 of the past 4 episodes just isn't good enough. And no matter what aura forcefield blocks his way, no aura forcefield will stop us from buying his three-foot plushie!

    Purugly and Muku.BIRD are like Sylvester and Tweety Bird, except this time, Tweety Bird wins. Good riddance to those Golbat, too. The evil team in the next generation needs five thousand copies of something more menacing...like Bidoof.

    The appearance of Cynthia's grandma (and in a speaking role) and Reggie was quite nice. Makes me hopeful for roles in the future. Chimchar's appearance was an awesome slap in the face to many of this forum's users, especially when it emerged only to give its best Ambipom impression. And Carnivine saves the day. Way better than a Monferno.

    Movie 8 throwback near the end with Riley and Lucario using their aura to stop the time bomb explosion was predictable but nice. And I certainly hope that Jun's promise to meet up with Ash at the Sinnoh League doesn't mean this is the last we'll be seeing of him until then. Good mini-arc, but there still has yet to be a real brutal battle with Galactic.

    If the magic of copy & paste and accounts on other forums are anything to go by, there's a Maestro-esque rant coming up, just you wait and see.

    I've only seen still images (the best kind of images) thus far, but I found Riley pulling a pokémon and making his hands glow to create a barrier of PURE AURA to be mildly amusing. Especially with that stoic pose, hands-a-stretched. It all looked so...silly.
    Not knocking aura or anything. Just saying is all :P

    Hmm...upon a quick visit to the *ahem* promised land, I believe I know who and what is being referred to. On that note, I am pleasantly perplexed at the reaction here (or lack thereof) on both sides of the aisle for all of the above topics (visit now-locked speculation thread for more info).

    Then again, I think kindygarten naptime is about over now. We're not safe just yet.

    wow...today's thread was started really early!
    How did you guys already get pics of it?I haven't found the episode anywhere yet
    It's a good thing that Staravia got a well deserved screentime after all!
    It might be a hint of Staraptor soon maybe?

    You really can't tell since no one calls the attack by name.

    No he did not.

    This was a good episode. The first part was especially good with Lucario going on a rampage and Ash and Mars' battle. It looks like they copied and pasted Pluto, he's even hunching over. One thing that I noticed was that Cyrus didn't seem angry at Mars. If that is true I like it.

    Thank God for no egg. now we can finally move on....sadly I doubt it.

    So what exactly did Chimchar do when released from its Ball? From the episode pictures, it just looks like someone stood on its hands.


    Kingler, my friend. No matter what, you will always remain my favourite Water type. You shouldn't have missed out on the Sinnoh League and I look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the near future.



    There you are, I see you in the back there!

    I think it tried to dig (to create a tunnel so Jun + TR could escape), but I'm guessing the soil probably was thick with steel that prevented it and gave it swelled hands.

    However, the coolest part of this episode was Carnivine saving the day.
    Sudowoodo, Croagunk, Mukkubird, and Grotle all helping out didn't hurt either.

    According to the 'pedia, this is the first time a Team Rocket Pokemon has learned a new move...

    Ash for the win!

    First post and you mentioned no egg?lol...
    Keep in mind not everything in DP anime will be accurate to the games(Old Plateau being in Canalave is example 1)

    Yep, no egg. Looks like Ash's team won't catch aura cancer after all.

    This was a Riley/Team Galactic centric episode as I figured. I didn't see Chimchar evolving here anyway. It will get an episode devoted to its evolution when it finally does evolve, probably Paul's next appearence.

    Its good to see Carnivine get a new attack. I bet Jessie uses it to win her 3rd ribbon.

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    You know, besides...something probably coming up soon, I'm surprised that people here are actually calm. I guess we did move on...to Chimchar's evolution frenzy.

    Hey, Pluto looks cool, our own version of Igor. And it looks like Galactic's plan is in full effect.

    A guy who's a really big Ash fan, Riolu freak probably, and hates Gliscor, he's over on Bulbagar...well figure it out from there.

    Staravia USED Brave Bird? Oh wow, now I have to watch this!

    -An entire 42 seconds of episode time is wasted by a recap for the two kids who missed last week's episode and the one old guy with alzheimer's who watches the show.
    -It seems that my prediction last week of aura eventually being able to be used for anything is coming true. First it was the sphere attacks, then it was forcing aura into things to make life trees liiiive, then it was detecting things from afar, then it was resisting the Steel type madness, and now it's shields. Maybe the end of the episode involves Gen using his aura powers to teleport AshnCo to Snowpoint? I mean, it'd be perfectly logical at this point.
    -Lucario appears to have a killer migrane. Why won't anyone listen when we tell them not to feed chocolate to bipedal aura dogs?
    -Ash somehow blocks a Bone Lightsaber without having his arm break or anything. Well okay then!
    -Professor Rowan? Cynthia's Grandma? Those Veilstone meteors? Reggie? Glowing engravings of dragon dieties? Shit is officially going down.
    -The lakes, Iron Island, and Mt Coronet are being highlighted on some map in TG (what I assume to be) Headquarters. I hate the writers so much right now since they're actually giving me hope that an evil team storyline will be handled supurbly.
    -And there's the walking corpse himself! As opposed to his clone who's busy refereeing for the Canalave Gym.
    -I'm not entirely sure what's going on with Lucario right now, but I'm assuming that it involves a plan to knock it out until they get rid of the source of the crazy. Mostly because this show always needs more violence. Or at least that's what my "OMG this will totally make this 22 minute advertisment for a children's video game franchise into a mature anime!" sources tell me.
    -...well, peeps got shocked, so it looks like I was right! Not that that one Thunderboltshockwave actually stopped Lucario, but it was a nice effort.
    -Duuuudes, can't saving the people who can't really help that much in battle wait until after you deal with TG?
    -Oh wait, they're about to be eaten alive by a Steelix. Go deal with TG anyway.
    -Gee, how handy that Gen can not only make shields with his aura, but he can make shields at a distance too.
    -One little Thunderbolt and eeeeeeverything's back to normal. I still have no goddamn idea what TG's make-Dialga/Palkia-related-things-glow plot has to do with various Steel Pokemon going insane, but hey. It's probably just some "oh the WEIRD POWER just made them do WEIRD THINGS" bs.
    -Cyrus mentioned an explosion. Oh yes.
    -I have no idea what anyone is saying, but I can already tell that Lucario's going to use its Multipurpose Power to find those bombs and render them harmless.
    -Doesn't more than one person around there have a rope? Jeez. You'd think Brock would have at least twenty of them in his Helpful Crap pocket dimension.
    -The camera is focusing on James crying...and now it's focusing on Carnivine. This can only mean one thing. Carnivine is going...to...EVOLVE!
    -Or learn Vine Whip. Same difference.
    -I see that Gen & Lucario are trying the highly advanced "pull the bomb off the wall" explosion-prevention strategy.
    -Not only can Gen & Lucario use an aura shield to contain the explosion, but they can then shove that aura shield into the sky, which brings the explosion with it(aka "a harmless distance away from everyone"). Next thing you know, aura will be found to be the cure for AIDS.
    -OH CRAP GEN IS LOOKING PRETTY WEAK IS HE GOONA DIahaha of course not this is an ordinary episode, not a movie.
    -You know, this is one of those rare episodes with so much dialogue that it makes me regret insisting on watching a show in a language I cannot understand. Oh sure, people on SPPf and BMGf tell other people the important points fairly quickly, but it's still not that great going "uh...ok I guess this is that one part that one person was talkikng about."
    -Seeing a small rat and a large metal penguin shake paws/claws is oddly amusing.

    You'd think Cynthia would make an appearance here? Meh, it was an alright episode overall.

    This was a pretty good episode.
    The Pluto cameo was cool and but it sucked that Jun got shafted throughout basically the whole episode, untill the end.

    NO EGG DDD
    I'm back
