Add me and tell me please.
This was a good filler. It definately wasn't a dumb plot or just randomness.. they actually thought this one up, in probably one of the writers more 'sane' moments.. at least in comparison to the PiplupxPika shipping episode...
As for Metagross powerlevels
Tysons Metagross (It took hell to bring this thing down, so its at the top spot)
Shiny Metagross (Killer, just a killer)
This Metagross (Not as brutal, since Magnezone had its back)
Anabels Metagross (It lost to Tauros??)
Double battle Metagross.. (So easily overcome..)
RANK UP: I'm Black and White, for now! I'm going to turn Grey tomorrow!

Same could be said about this episode, the Japanese themselves could edit a little bit and get rid of the Pikachu clone.

Some of you need to look at this before you comment on what a Pokemon should learn. Some of you are okay but some of you need to look at this: http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-bw/ This is the attackdex, it is your friend.
This episode was alright. I didn't really care for the plot and the only cool thing about it was the Happiny moments when it showed it's strength. Other than that, it was a pretty "meh" episode.
i cant find this episode anywhere online i slept in to late anyone have a link to it on youtube or something?
And its over. The episode was fairly pretty good imo, with the conflict with Magnezone and Metagross. Plus, two Pikachu I saw, like the errors on Bulbapedia said. x3
I cant believe Happiny picked up that huge entire ice in the lake. Guess I shouldn't question her awesome power.
The Draco Meteor at the end, hitting Piplup into that empty lake was hilarious. And being chased by the two Magnezone and Metagross. xD
And the opening for the show, was so awesome! I cant wait to rewatch it. ^^
Not a bad intro. A little slow, though...
As for the episode, it was pretty good. And it's surprising to knew that Meowth can't communicate with all pokemon...

Pretty o.k ep for a new season. The intro, i guess it was okay. some scenes were edited out that i would've liked to have been kept like the one with Shayman, Celebi and Jirachi. but hey what can you do?

Watching this episode was like watching an OU battle taking place because it involved two OU Pokemon (Magnezone and Metagross) fighting. But they're doing so to get rid of the electric energy they have. As for the opening of the new season, it was trail of spoilers. They should've used scenes for the first episodes of the new season before they could use the current opening credits from the original Japanese.
I liked the opening it was slow but fitting I think some of the haters are just spoiled by the upbeat openings or the japanese openings..
I liked the episode.. the charachter models for this episode were great! I'm glad it's back after it's two weeks off! Lets go off to the sinnoh league!
aaah, finally Pokemon again. How have I missed it although it was "only" a two-week break! *me is relieved*
As for the opening:
I love this new opening and I definitely don't see any good reason why you shouldn't.
The scenes are impressive, sometimes even epic and thus worthy of the final season of a region. The music is very solemn and the lyrics are thoughtful. Quite frankly, this is just appropriate for the season which features the league, because this is also the most solemn and important event of every new adventure.
Anyways, the mixture of scenes, music and lyrics was great and appropriate, so again, I love this opening! If only it weren't so damn short.
As for the episode itself:
Boo! THIS was disappointing. Not again an episode that makes me upset about the strange physics of the Pokemon world which defies (almost)all logic...
- Ash is going to battle for his eighth badge really soon and his Monferno (fire type!) is not able to take down at least ONE of those two steel types??? Moreover, Monferno has always been shown as Ash's (secret) powerhouse, for example against Paul or when my dear beloved Cynthia talked about his future. I'm asking you, how come Monferno did so badly today? My biggest point of criticism!
- Suuuure, Happiny can lift a whole frozen lake and throw it into a valley as it is was nothing. COME ON!!! How silly was that?!?:saiyan: The writers have already proven themselves as being able to write highly profound, great episodes! Why this decline now??
- Why can't Metagross and Magnezone just battle SOMEWHERE else in this HUGE forest?? Why do they need exactly this basin? I mean, there surely was plenty of space in that forest and at least some even ground where they could slug it out. That explanation with the basin defied all logic considering that a town/city with all its narrow streets and tall buildings isn't more spacious than a forest at all
Sorry guys, but this was poor storytelling!

finnally i cant wait
metagross is way better
Im not a hater, but having sat and watched the Japanese version of the intro, in the particular order in which they had it....I just found it a bit messy when dubbed. I just dont see how they are going to factor it in in THAT scene at the end of DP179 because it is so slow and contemplative.
The ep itself, ah, every series starts with a dodgy filler, like Get Your Rotom Running! Wasnt a bad ep for filler though.
EDIT: And just realised that at around 6:32, they still havent bothered editing out the double Pikachu!

This episode was great. The new theme song was not one of the best, but I do like all the pics and scenes. I thought it was incredible when Happiny threw the giant ice basin off the valley. I found it funny that Gible's Draco Meteor hit Piplup into the battle between Metagross and Magnezone.
This is a cartoon, physics doesnt apply here, if I go on about this how do pokemon conjure up random amounts of mass from nowhere. The happiny thing is meant to be funny, to amuze you so lighten up a little please? (puppy dog eyes) The more outrageous it is, the funnier it gets so please lighten up.
Now to the episode, I think it is a great start to the new season nice to see a magnezone and a metagross. It was very actioney also, with the battles at the start, but then it went very heart warming where you see all the gang's pokemon appear helping out here and there and it was just refreshing. Then we go all actioney again with magnezone and metagross battling to death in their basin where no other pokemon are around the harm and they can just release there anger (quite literally). Then we go light hearted again for the gible-piplup draco meteor joke which is a nice end to the episode.
To be honest, i think it was well written and also well balanced to keep us entertained.
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.
Apparently i'm a...
Favourite Pokemon: but i like them all
