It was just as Filler-y and bland as the Japanese version, but at least I understood the setting and plot a little more. The episode was bland because it involved Pokemon we've seen before and a plot that seemed to have been copied from another episode. I liked that James got his chance to shine when it came to finding the Dusk Stone, but other than that, all the other characters even the COTD Mitchel and Rihanna (pop culture reference?) seemed a tad boring even for COTD.
Overall, it involved a sibling rivalry that was solved at the last minute when Mitchel's Murkrow saved Rihanna's Misdreavus. Too convenient for my tastes. A 5/10.
