    Please do not comment on the intro here. Thank you. Besides Mewtwo was briefly in the intro...that has been confirmed for months from the japanese intro that that clip was taken from

    They mainly used the Battle Frontier stuff - they should of show the original 8th Season Opening, not the 9th Season -_-;

    Besides, I wouldn't be surprised if they are already dubbing the 8th Movie right this moment- lets hope they dont give Rukario or Manyula some heterosexual name.

    But yeah, the whole thing with Team Rocket & Clamperl was funny. How it blew Jessie into a tree with Water Gun XD - and her trying to open it and **** XD

    I wish they would of just used the Japanese Opening instead of putting a straight theme song to it and mixing the 8th & 9th Season intro's...

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have dubbed the entire season of Advanced Battle already...

    Ooooh! AG Season 3 is going to prove that the future of Pokemon is Wild! I know that Advanced Battle will be an experiment in adventure! My waiting has finally payed off, Yay me!

    I know I just pulled taglines from ads for Lunatics Unleashed, Johnny Test and Coconut Fred (who provided a great final countdown), but this really describes what Advanced Battle is going to be about. New stuff, new events, and new Pokemon too.

    But how did this season begin, with a bang of course, of Pokeballs followed up by a Badge Case with one on it (gasp!) being our brand new title card! The new intro was excellent, read my post in the corrosponding thread for more about that.

    Now, we've got an intresting plot today, and the return of Spoink (Yay Me!)! It's nice to see Spoink again after all this time, even though we are starting AG Season 3 (yep, AG numbering roxors my soxors!). The new professor guy was neat, I could tell he was the cousin of a rock star (hedley hint hint ).

    Now for the NEW Trainers Choice, no more Arbok>Seviper problems, they've been studying haven't they? Ember is super-effective against pure grass types such as Seedot (not Ludicolo, he's part grass).

    Clamperl had a unique voice, kinda sounded like Dory in a clam. Just like last time Spoink appeared,

    James also flashed cards again, but this time the backs were blank and the fronts were not shown, was this an edit? If 4Kids could pull off a Sandwich edit, they could have painted away the backs and modified the fronts last time. But this was good though (was it like that originally?).

    So, Season 8, this will be a most exciting season at that!

    A lot better than the first Spoink episode, that's for sure. Similarly, though, the best parts were the comedic value, and nothing much more. The Giovanni fantasy with Clamperl was one of the greatest fantasies ever, rivaling only the Bagon one. Even better yet was Meowth waving his *** in front of Clamperl, only to get it clamped, lawl. And the animation also whopped ***, unlike last week's episode...

    You people are getting too optimistic over the slight twist of Trainer's Choice. They'll foul it up over the next few episodes. Trust me.

    Yes, I loved the Trainer's Choice. It could actually be quite tricky if you think about it. All of the Pokemon there would be weak to fire attacks if it weren't for Lapras and Ludicolo being part-water types.

    Anyways... anyone find it extremly unrealisitic that the blue peral just happens to find its way to a Clamperl, knocking the pink peral is knocked out of the shell and straight onto Spoink's head? What was with that?

    Anyways, forgot my rating. 8/10.

    EDIT: Oh, and did anyone else notice James? "That's one shell of a shell!" XD I love it when 4Kids does funny puns that the kids won't get.

    4kids does NOT change the Pokemon names. That is all done by Nintendo of America. Thank you.

    To start, the new entrance theme isn't too bad. Spoink-chan was its usual kawaii self...too bad we won't see the little guy again. If anyone's played Emerald, check both Spoink and Clamperl's entries. Cool, huh? Good that they planned this fact ahead of time.^_^ James' shell quote will be familiar to TMNT viewers, where that show's used that shell pun about a hundred times.

    The Trainer's Choice v.2 isn't bad at all...let's hope they won't screw up at all this time around. And I squealed(in shock) when they showed the Wailmer on Spoink...how the heck can Spoink balance it on its head without using Psychic?!o_0;

    Overall, 8/10. Great start to Advanced Battle.

    Oh man, the new theme song is good but I like the one before it ( Pokemon Advanced[ theme song]) better.

    I HOPE that was sarcasm, because I pretty sure most children would've gotten that without even thinking. Ever watch the new Ninja Turtles? It's said a gazillion times, that it's not even hilariously funny anymore. Not that it ever was.

    Anyway, after my hiatus of not even watching Pokemon for the past 8 weeks, I thought I might as well start watching again for the new season.
    I caught the new opening just as it opened, and spit my java at the TV screen.

    OH MY GOD. OH MY DEAR GOD, NO.

    Taking out a song that barely had lyrics in it? That was to be expected.
    But having the worst opening song to date cuts it for me.
    As the episode starts, I'm greeted to lame Pokemon voices and silliest episode to start a new season with. Pretty average episode really. Most of the plot was spoinks "blah" quest to find it's "blah" pearl. Not much going to for this episode.

    Score: 5/10

    Didn't Serebii just say not to talk about the intro here? And what do you guys do? Geez...

    And PokemonScot, homophobic comments won't be tolerated here. Do it again and you'll get a week-long ban.

    Anyone notice this is another episode where they gave a pokemon a gender? James refered to Spoink as "him" or "he" in the episode.

    We never see the captain. Not once. Torkal jumps off the ship into the MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN. Wouldn't that cause the captain to come out of the cabin? It's not like it's a big ship...

    It does use Psychic (or Confusion) to balance things on its head, even without the pearl it has that power, they're just not as strong. The pearl doesn't give it power, it merely enhances the existing power.

    It was a fairly average episode to me, the best part was Grovyle's awesome backflip dodge. ^_^

    Have you ever seen what the inside of a clam or oyster shell looks like? Basically its a bunch of muscle that can be used as a "foot" by some kinds. With what they had to work with they couldn't do a lot without making it all dark and mysterious like another Shellder/Cloyster.

    At least this episode had me laughing throughout. It was great to see Team Rocket's entire lineup in the episode, the new credits, and the whole thing with spoink. My two cents:

    -- The scene where Team Rocket kept trying to get clamperl to open up was ROFLOL hilarious. I liked James having Chimecho try to get it open, Jessie's head swelling in anger, and her breathing fire (Jessie breathing fire never fails to crack me up).
    -- The random chibi moment with Jessie was odd, but it was funny.
    -- Brock dragging Max away, thinking he was clamperl, was hilarious. I forget what other episode he did the same thing in before, though.
    -- I loved spoink putting all the various pokemon on his head. The part where he put wailmer on his head had to be the funniest.
    -- I wish we could have seen spoink again, it was a pretty funny two-time character.

    8/10 for me, a strong season opener.

    It was a tad dull to me.

    Would you rather it look like one of these? A slab or two of meat, perhaps with a pearl?

    Thanks! I was wracking my brains all weekend on that. I appreciate it.

    Also, one other thing I liked about the episode is the usual boss fantasy turned around to being a bad thing. Now *that* was a welcome change. I know they'll do that a few more times this season.

    Yeah I loved that part too. Grovyle is easily the most athletic Pokemon Ash has ever had.

    This episode was pretty good, and it was a nice start to the 8th season of the series. Torkoal's kind-heartedness almost got him into trouble xD. Also, it was pretty funny to see Spoink put a Wailmer on its head. And the expressions on Team Rocket's faces when they were reading James' attack cards were pretty funny as well. So overall, it was a pretty funny episode.

    Okay. Spoink is starting to become a total loser. I'm sorry, Spoink, but come on! It meets Ash and co., and doesn't keep track of its pearl for a few seconds. You'd think due to last time it would've learned a lesson in responsibility but nooooo. (Okay, so maybe I exaggerated a little bit.)

    Yeah, that was a funny part. I also liked the scene where Torkoal jumped into the water and basically ignored the fact that it was a fire type. I don't know which Spoink episode I like better, because I liked the Magikarp Salesman's appearance in the other one.
