    I rather liked that trick that Grotle learned where it uses some claw move to gain traction so it can run extremely fast. What move is that, Metal Claw?

    So is this the first episode where they changed the screenshots of the Galactic Battles song?

    -Anyway, Japanese Mewtwo movie music played in that first scene after the title music.

    -That whole Snover hugging Ash thing and Ash and his friends eating those things used Japanese music I've never heard in the dub before...

    Did they just this week change the opening theme? Or was that last week (which I missed)?

    They mentioned the change on another forum, so it looks like it was this week? I guess they're doing this on this episode since it's the episode that Japan put it in HD. Which Cartoon Network hasn't done... Isn't there a Cartoon Network HD, though? I don't know what they're doing there...

    EDIT: Pokemon.com has uncropped screenshots of the episode...

    @jolteonjak- Especially since this shows as the title for DP116.

    But when the episode started, WOW. The High Touch Opening was finally used! And what a great job! And what an opening for the episode title.

    Er, looks like HD isn't working on my TV (guess since it ain't HD). Maybe my TV in the living room will work. Oh well, hopefully this gives YouTube in HD a use.

    Episode way, it's going pretty much okay. Snover's pretty cool, but I don't like to see Pokemon feel lonely. But Im glad Snover now has friends, even though they're pretty much little kids. :P Also, Grotle using Rock Climb was quite awesome.

    But hey, great episode! The opeing stood out the most for me this morning.

    A bit of a belated answer now that the dub has aired, but even listening to the Japanese episode should have made it obvious that the move is Rock Climb, since it has the same name in Japanese. And not only that, it's been mentioned at least a dozen times already in this thread, so a little bit of reading would have made sense.

    When I saw the original Japanese title, I thought it going to be a Snover lost in the snow trying to find its family. I'm really curious on what its snowballs taste like as I'm guessing they're like snow cones but taste better. Grotle learning rock climb was kind of a letdown since HM moves can't be learned from gaining experience, with the exception of Rayquaza though. I forgot to mention about the new intro, which is good, and perhaps everyone's happy that they added the Darkrai vs. Regigigas scene.

    Aha! They edited the opening to include High Touch scenes now, and the episode looked great in HD. (and I wasn't going to rewatch it...)
    I'm slightly more entertained by this episode now that's its in English. And it's cool that Grotle learned a new attack.

    I absolutely loved this episode! The opening was amazing! Almost identical to Japan's minus a couple of scenes. Did anyone know they were going to do new opening?

    Snover was amazing! I loved it's character! Too bad it it never joined anyone's team....it seemed to get along well with everyone. Oh well. Rock climb was superb! It was nice to grotle get some of it's speed back!

    You're kidding?! They did the Japanese opening today?! In the middle of the season? That's a definite first! I forgot that this episode was going to be in HD but didn't know that the opening from Japan was going to appear. I thought they were saving the opening scenes for next season. I missed it this morning but I have CN west on my Dish Network so I'll catch it at Noon.

    The new opening is awesome! Well, it is the Japanese opening. It also has scenes for DP129. It didn't air in widesreen, right? I do like the episode though.

    I actually thought Ash was going to get Snover. O_O
    Instead he went off with some kids. That's not a bad thing, but I'd rather see Ash get a new Pokémon.

    Nope, there wasn't any HD on my TV. But when I looked up the TV radio aspects, CN kept it 4:3 like it's always been. As the HD episodes are a 16:9 ratio.

    But yeah, the opening was an incredible suprise. That woke my eyes up this morning. xD

    And also, anyone notice the font for "To Be Continued" was changed as well. It was okay, but personally, we've had the original since the first episode.

    The font for To Be Continued was also changed the Japanese one. The opening was quite a surprise to me, as well. I wish that CN did not keep it at 4:3 although I don't think 16:9 will work on my TV. It might though. I know it will work for my friend because with SSBB, he has the ratio at 16:9. The episode was still great though!

    It's cool that they changed the opening sequence. Good to see scenes from High Touch! (they cut out the part with Gary & Paul) ahemm... and DP129 as well. VERY much better than the previous sequence.

    On to the episode...

    Overall, very good. With Snover being a prankster and all that, plus Grotle learning Rock Climb. Snover sounded kind of funny, even though it wasn't what I expected it to be.

    I thought Ash would definatly end up with Snover. I liked the episode, and the knew opening credits. The scene where Grotle was rescuing Snover was so awesome.
    Quit. For real this time lol. Moved to Pokebeach as Tyaniking a long time ago. The only thing keeping me here was the games corner and the really fun RPGs, but those are out, so I started going to the TCG section, but that's pretty much dead. I'm trying to get into the video games, but most of my time is devoted to the TCG, so IDK how it's gonna go. If I get back into the games, I'll probably come back. Besides, most of the other TCG crew moved to Pokebeach as well. Any of my groups or games may be closed or they may be remade by anyone who wants to. I give full permission. I'm sorry I have to leave, but that's just life.

    @Ren and Pika- Yes, this is the first time the dub has took a tenure change, however a similar episode (Once in a Mawhile) had a change in the opening, only two or three of them were cut out before the release of DP was out.

    As for the opening, I thought it was well down and how it turned out to be cramped into once opening. Seriously, it's like Pokemon International just took the whole part of High Touch in snippets and high speed. Snover's dub voice wasn't half bad as I expected.

    As for the CN channel having HD, yes they do have an HD channel, but it's only available via satellite viewers. I am sure they will move eventually, or once the season gets a boxset itself next year, the episodes will be in HD format.
