    No sign of Oak, or Delia is what bothers me! Oh well, there's till possibility that they will appear in the next 2 episodes!

    Oak appears multiple times.

    He's still at his Ranch in Pallet, as with Delia I presume.

    No. Since when do we ever deserve anything? Besides, what were you expecting Kingler to do anyway? At most, we would have just seen it resting in water.

    WTF? Sceptile and Swellow were Ash's LONGEST LASTING pokemon in the show.
    I guarantee Bulbasaur lasted much longer than those two, and pretty soon Torterra & Muku will surpass this supposed "Longest Lasting" feat their predecessor's held.

    At long last, I am returning with my Fan-Fic. Just need to find a better host. Blogger has done its course but I need just a little more recognition.

    I freaking HATE "Mega" Evolution.

    Yeah Bulbasaur lasted the longest, but aside from it.

    Sceptile/Swellow were there from AG4 and AG6 respectively, which gave them 187 eps on the main cast at least. Nobody has surpassed that yet, not even Torterra/Staraptor.

    So you have no reason to believe that Sceptile's agility doesn't put it on an equal playing field with Torterra?

    @Cybercubed and Thriller, lol, crazy banter.

    Cant believe you still cant get over Sceptile and Swellow (and no, thats not bad writing before you bonegasm over it)

    and Thriller, how does Torterra have a better chance against Fire when, like raz1337 posted, Sceptile is faster, which gives it better response time against Fire Pokemon (which are fast as a rule) and Torterra has no ground-type moves?

    All argument sounds a bit flawed.......

    Staraptor was captured in the second episode, which means that it has been on 180 DP episodes. I think there are more than 7 episodes left, but the title still belongs to Treeko, for now...

    Oak appears multiple times.

    He's still at his Ranch in Pallet, as with Delia I presume.
    I meant in person, not on the PC talking. I want to see them both at the League cheering for him in the stands. that, or a short section were all of Ash's close friends are seen watching the TV.

    A league with only 64 participants . . . I have to wonder how many fewer trainers they'd have if Volkner hadn't been just giving out badges for a period of time earlier. I know Sinnoh has more than eight gyms, but still.

    I can already see how the writers are planning the future, have Ash have a fire-type Battle Frontier facility, and then just when a trainer takes down Charizard, Torkoal, Quilava and Infernape with water types, Ash brings out Pikachu.....HULLO......THUNDER!!!!!!!

    Um...did anyone else notice that the guy standing behind Ash and Dawn at the sign it was the CotD from the episode that Brock caught Groangunk?

    Nice cameo!

    Also, the three that appeared in the line, including the Gymbaliar guy, are not on the board of competitors and, if I remember correctly, that guy ran off with the badge he got from Team Rocket! Anyone else feel he might of got screwed over because of them?

    Where are you talking about? When they got off the ship or in line to register? I checked Gymbaliar, and there was the girl CotD and a boy they screwed with with a sandslash. Who were you talking about and when?

    The only way I don't see Sceptile making an appearance is if they plan on Ash winning E4 and bringing him out as one of his big dogs there.

    I can't see any other logical reason the writers would go through trouble of going down memory lane but leaving one of Ash's powerhouses on the bench when he's a simple phone call to Oak away.

    When Ash is registering, he is the guy DIRECTLY behind him with huge hair and a Luxray. His design was used at the VERY beginning of Gymbaliar, fighting against Jessie at the fake gym, where he used Marowack and won. He is on the top of this page: http://www.serebii.net/anime/pictures/shinou/476.shtml.

    That's what I thought. It would sort of explain why the league is going so fast. Maybe, to be the champion of the Sinnoh League, you have to beat the champion. Could give Ash winning predictions some credibility.

    Yes, that someone who is going to battle her is none else than Flint from E4. It has been said, but I doubt it will get more than minute of focus.

    Don't forget Swellow. Why would Corphish/Torkoal/Glalie be there but not Sceptile and Swellow?

    And then there's the Kanto starters...

    Damn, dude, that's a great catch.

    But who's to say Charizard won't be flying in from the sky in a few episodes? It makes me think of the Battle Frontier saga. Phanpy joining the team alone was enough of a hint of reserve Pokemon being used. It makes me curious about which came first...Emerald or the Advanced Battle opening.

    This is new. Episode title please? And yeah, the choice of Pokemon might seem weird at first, but...

    Swellow not being there: Staraptor, because of Sinnoh, and Noctowl because of his long abscence.

    Sceptile not being there: Torterra hasn't done much except battle Bertha since it evolved. And Bayleaf, like Noctowl, wasn't seen in a while.

    I think Ash took torkoal because he only has one other fire type, Infernape. Glalie because it's Ash's only Ice-type. Corpfish... That one's a mystery. it would make more sense if it was just Totodile, as he hasn't been seen in a while. Corpfish had a little too much screentime in Hoenn...

    I cant remember the title, but if someone else can refer you to it, theres an ep where Ash sees Paul on TV after Paul has won his 8th badge, and the TV shows he doenst have the Beacon Badge, but an animé exclusive badge. Plus, you got DP163 where Paul disses Barry about taking a freebie Beacon Badge, saying that Sunnyshore is the worst gym and he would never compete there. Meaning there are at least 9 gyms in Sinnoh.

    This was a great episode, though I'm kinda disappointed that we didn't get to see Ash's and Dawn's Cyndaquil interacting. Though somehow I get the feeling that if TR hadn't stolen the pokeballs at the start, there would have been time for that. Though I gotta wonder are TR just that dumb or do they just want to try to give Ash and friends a sporting chance cuz they seriously just waited outside for Ash and co to realize his pokeballs have been stolen after they had gotten the pokeballs before they tried to run away. Though I gotta hand it to their mech, it was sturdy, but I guess since they won't (I hope) be doing any meddling for the next bunch of episodes, they had to get their worth.

    I really did find the scene at registration funny just because of the fact that Heatran was just so out of place in there. I mean it's like Pikachu, Piplup, Purugly, Luxray, Heatran......-*music skids to a stop and camera zooms back to Heatran*Heatran?!

    But the best part of the episode by far, was Cyndaquil's evolution into Quilava. It was amazing how TR were closing in on it and suddenly it starts glowing and evolves. Not to mention from that point it curb stomped the very mecha that was able to take a Hydro Pump, Bubblebeam, Water Gun, Thunderbolt combo and in one shot none the less. Nice to see that the little guy was able to keep his status as a bruiser even all these years later. He makes all of Ash's fire starters proud. And I gotta says Cyndaquil deserved it after not getting to evolve back in Johto despite doing so well. Funny though how now Infernape is the only one of Ash's fire pokemon who doesn't have a fire attack stronger than Flamethrower.

    Blue likes the Dancing Trpinch so should you.

    Flame Wheel seems to be enormously strong in the anime. I think TR just stopped and waited for them just to see the looks on their faces! And really, TR needs to get better disguises, although I imagine that they won't be needed for a while, since TR will most likely sell food and drinks just like in Hoenn, kanto and I think Johto.

    The more and more I watch - I think the CoTD that LostHero pointed out is the legendary training. In this episode, if you look at a couple choice frames - the Luxray, Purugly, and Heatran all seem in line as he looks back at them all.

    That would make more sense on the writers part to have this guy from Gymbaliar have Heatran than the generic hat guy.

    Have they even elaborated on where Heatran comes from and if it's unique? I just don't get htf you just end up with one. That purugly is sitting there like it's just another day at the beach.

    Heatran doesn't seem to be a singular legendary. He was seen in the past in Arceus and the Jewel of Life, as well as in a Pokemon Ranger episode.

    I think Heatran is just a normal Pokemon that can be found, rarely, in caves.
