    Who ever animated this is great. Anyone else notice how good the closing scene with Ash and Paul looked?

    Close combat was much better than Jun's. This should increase the birds chances of being used against Candice.

    I like how Honchkrow KOed a Dragonite and didn't lose the battle against Staraptor by fainting. Shows that its pretty strong. Paul won't release it.

    MukuEmoBang action

    Chimchar's next.

    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)

    I think someone mentioned that Iwane was the animator for this one. Brilliant choice for this, considering the last evolution episode...yeah, let's not go there.

    Anyway, I haven't seen it yet (I haven't had too much time recently to spend watching videos), but I've looked through the episode pics. I have to say this looks like a very good episode. Of course, I'm not able to fully judge until I see pictures, but first impressions can go a long way.

    What would really be awesome in the dub would be for our Samurai guy to get a similar/same voice as before. Any idea who voiced Samurai originally?

    To answer the AD question (though I and probably others already mentioned it), it was the work of one Masaaki Iwane, who is generally regarded as top-of-the-line as far as animation directors who still regularly contribute go. Really, it was the best choice for Mukubird's adieu, with the flipside being that we'll be stuck with Kazue Kinoshita for Munchlaxswine vs. Aggron in DP119.

    I guess what worked back in the old days doesn't work as efficiently as before. Oh well.

    I wonder how long it'll take Paul to be specific and go: "doesn't count, it wasn't a real battle". Just you watch.

    but I am NOT glad Staravia evoloved!!
    Kind of had to happen. Oh well, to each their own.

    Wait... didn't we hear it back in the first episode? I don't think they'd change it that drastically.

    How fitting; music used in a movie featuring legendary birds is used in an episode featuring... normal birds.

    That would be Jimmy Zoppi.

    Also, for that MUKU- roundhouse kick.

    and the folks working on next weeks episode are:

    Ya know, I'm always fascinated how there are different teams of animators for each episode. Learning from others is quite fun.

    Samurai should have entered with his Butterfree, (from his old Metapod)

    Haha.

    One of my fav episodes in DP.
    I didn't expect Close Combat is that great attack, it seems Staravia's personality works on Staraptor.
    wow, just look at Staraptor's hair when he was trying to avoid Honchkrow attacks! Iwane, you're awesome.

    Now, we can officially assuming that Staraptor is powerful pokemon, isn't he?

    I believe it was a certificate, a trophy, and a good supply of food. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much thinking to figure out what happened to the food.

    Nice to see Paul flinch a bit when Staraptor evolved. The bird wasn't doing all that badly against Honchkrow before it evolved . . . once it did, Paul was in trouble, and even though he wouldn't admit it, he knew it.

    And the animation with the hawk was awesome as well - I can see this becoming a theme, the animators putting Staraptor in positions that make him resemble other anime heroes with their "cool" hair . . . it was amazing how much they made that stand out after the evolution.

    The Bird is dead. Long live the Hawk!

    Was that really Samurai or did they just reuse his character design?

    Just reuse his character design.

    It's no big deal, they've done it countless times. I dunno if the animators are just lazy, or if they put it in for long-time fans to notice.

    Also, Samurai minus armor is a pretty generic character design anyway.

    Im not sure if its just e, but from the episode pics Raptor seemed to be a bit more doofy than before. Its probably just me.
    Where would free giveaways be without Bidoof and their masta?

    Glad to see Ash is getting back into the habit of using fully-evolved Pokemon.

    ...I give it two more gyms before he releases it.

    A) "Habit"? It's not like he starts out a region with final evolutions.
    B) "Releases"? Have you not watched this series for 10 years? Even if you're referring to being dropped off at Oak's lab, Mukuhawk has some pretty high odds of making it into a filler saga, seeing as how Ash never leaves home without a generic regional flyer.

    I wouldn't mind if Pokeringer became a regular thing. It showed that there is enough variety with this to keep it interesting a second time.

    The only problem is there aren't any other flying Pokemon on the cast at the moment to keep this from being a rehash if they do it a third time.

    Surprised Dawn didn't find a way to enter with Gliscor or someone, May entered the last one with Beautifly although she lost quickly.

    I wish I hadn't read this thread, boring whining over a bird. I love Staravia, but Staraptor is way better.

    Pretty good episode. Glad to see that Staraptor actually got a battle after evolving. Swellow won easily after winning.

    James didn't even give it one order despite plenty of time to do so. It's more his fault. He did fine in the last Pok&#233;Ringer.

    I still remember almost 2 and a half years ago when Starly evolved and everyone got excited thinking Staraptor would be a short times away. Boy did things change.

    It's had brain damage since Ash hit the poor dear with a Pok&#233;ball.

    It will be the same as all the other Staraptor we've seen. (DP001, DP066, DP071, etc)
    Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are remakes, confirmed.

    There are only two gyms left for one.

    And just because its similar to Pidgeot in the fact that they're both normal/flying type bird pokemon that Ash has obtained doesn't mean its going to have the same fate. Ash doesn't even release pokemon any more.


    Staraptor has about as much chances of being released as Infernape does of disobeying Ash upon evolving, being frozen by a Poliwrath before learning to obey Ash and then being left at the "Infernific Valley" to train in the 5th generation land.

    This was an awesome episode, seeing how Honchkrow was kicked in the face... priceless, now close combat is one of my fav anime's moves (a lot better than the Jun's Staraptor one)....
    I hope Ash will use it against Candice...

    I wonder what Ash's Staraptor will look like next to Juns...IIRC, Juns Staraptor was barely bigger than Chimchar.

    and also, they just HAVE to pass back through Veilstone and see Reggie now.
