Ash's rotated team right now

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)
If you deny any sort of existence of Iris's hair, put this into your sig (started by 5ilVer)
Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.
I translate for #Pocketmonsters (just because I know Japanese does not make me Japanese, stop PMing me).
Liked how we finally got some Team Galactic action.
Glad that Saturn and Charon were both involved in the mission and that Looker was there to ruin their plans.
A very exciting episode indeed. Not every day that you see the best characters all together. 9/10
It was so-so they did not even go into that door but the shellos were useless this one going to air on dec 19
I love every epiode with team galactic in it !
My Pokemon team !
"As a grunt I only serve cyrus "!
Like spider riders ?
Join the fourm !
Pretty cool episode.. Glad the US version did not cut out Looker woopin on Galactic Tail!
poor Shellos..when it was crying all tied up.
I was hoping Crogunk was gonna come out for a rematch against the Toxicroak,... but I guess after that beatdown it got awile back....
Man i wish the writers would at least do more with Brock..
"Don't let Team Galactic Escape!" Brock just stood there.. sure pikachu a nd piplup were out of their balls and was easy to just attack but I wish brock could have at least send it something! lol
another episode not in widescreen.. if next weeks is.. I'm starting to sense a two week pattern...but We'll see :P...

My finals are over, so it's back to watching Pokemon episodes. Hooray!
This is an entertaining episode, although its failing is that the Team Galactic plot does not progress much. I got the feeling this would be the case when, midway through the episode, attention was placed on mini-diversions such as Team Rocket's theft of the key and Shellos' tendency to run away crying; it is a little disappointing. But that's why the Shellos plot is here as well, to make sure the episode ends with a feeling that something did get done. I liked the way the flooding of the caves was used to solve the problem of the Shellos appearing on the wrong side of Mt. Coronet, probably because I forgot it was a problem in the first place. At least the writers did not, to their credit.
Characterwise, Looker and Saturn were the best, especially Saturn, who always looked like he did not believe anything was going to come out of this.
My favorite part was when Ash and the gang observed the footprints in the cave (without Looker's special binocular thing; regular flashlights will do for our heroes), and Ash and Dawn both enthusiastically thought the people who made them would show them a way out of the caves. Brock was hesitant about the idea but quietly went along with it. And of course, the gang then ran right into Team Galactic and were tied up (Pikachu looked hilarious). Team Galactic placed Brock in the middle; and to me, it was as if they could tell which one of the three had common sense.
Meowth has been saying a funny one-liner in each episode recently.

I missed the episode this morning but I heard that they kept all of the Japanese BGM in this episode.
They're pronouncing Charon as "Karon"? I always thought it was pronounced as "Chairon". I still can't believe Saturn didn't just punch Charon in the face at all during the episode. Ole Pink Head was being a complete jerk (of course, I could think of a few other words to insert their too) in this episode.
Also, I think I like Looker better in the games. Dopey and hilarious is, in my opinion, better than serious and butt-kicking. Too bad he can't be dopey and butt-kicking.
And, on a final note:
Charon: Saturn, are you pondering what I am pondering?
Saturn: Are you pondering cheese sticks? Narf!

At least I found out why there are different types of Shellos, which brings me to this question: What did the shellos look like before they were separated? Yay for another Team Galactic appearance, not to mention Charon, who is voiced by none other than the current voice actor of Dr. Robotnik. Seeing as Looker is voiced by Jason Griffith, I was expecting some Sonic vs. Robotnik feelings in this episode. Who knew that Looker is that skilled in beating those grunts.
ah FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I didn't see it.
I blame the horrible holiday hours of working, and forcing me to stay late hours. :X And then I blame CN putting Pokemon on so fricken early in the morning. Holy crapperz.
But anyways. I heard they pronounce Charon in some funky way. Doesn't really matter to me, as I always call him Pluto anyways. CAR ON, haha wtf. And that he has Eggman's VA. Is he able to do that creepy chuckle?
I heard Saturn sounds stoned (we should def chill sometime.)
AND THEY KEPT LOOKER BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF THE GRUNT! <3
Yeah, I think I'll catch this tomorrow when it comes on again.
I agree that the whole scheduling is a little off this time of year.
Anyway, it was still good, probably better than the Japanese version since I actually understood what the characters were saying.
I like Charon's voice, it suits him.
Interesting episode. The Shellos plot was a little boring, but Team Glactic was interesting as always. Pikachu's face looked a little odd at times. I wonder if anyone else noticed.
When Saturn sent out his Toxicroak to use Rock Smash, I was expecting Croagunk to come out and at least look menacing or something, but apparently after that beating he got back at the museum, he's a little hesitant about taking on his evolution.
I've officially claimed Swampert!
Given that apparently not even astronomers can agree on how Charon is pronounced (on the science channel I've heard "sharon", "kay-rone", "karon", "char-on", and "sherrin"), it only stands to reason that it'd be inconsistant in the episode.
However, "shel-oss" was odd.
Charon is Mike Pollock, Looker is Jason Griffith. Given that, there was a dissapointing lack of "I HATE THAT
I jest, of course.
A very nice episode overall, although I'm confused as to the lack of blue Shellos. The pink one's gotten screentime thanks to Zoey, so it just bugged me they couldn't use the blue one and go from west to east, rather than east to west with pinky.

Once again a great episode which I really enjoyed from the beginning to the end!
The only thing that somehow bothered me was the fact that Shellos was so extremely small. Do all the small Pokemon necessarily have to be crybabies?
But everything else was just breath-taking:
Set in mountainous terrain and mysterious caves and featuring both Looker and another part of the exciting and excellent Team Galactic plot, this episode could only be a win right from the start and left nothing to be desired.
You may now think that's all, but no! We also witnessed something unprecedented in Pokemon which we wouldn't even have dreamed of: physical violence!!!
That completely took my by surprise, but not that I didn't like it, on the contrary! This was a further proof of how far the Pokemon Anime has advanced by now!
All in all, a breath-taking, outstanding and action-packed episode which really knocked my socks off!
It raised my anticipation of the long-awaited Team Galactic finale which I now want to see as DUB as soon as possible!
8 out of 10 points

i loved that little shellos!!!! i was hoping someone would catch it... but no. anyway great episode. gotta love that galactic...
Banner by millarc3005I have claimed Mudkip. I heard they liek me.
Just watched this episode. It was pretty good, yet Galactic is always up to something, which is no good. Anyway, good to see that Shellos got re-united.
And Mr. Looker being disguised was pretty neat.
