    The animation was really good, Team Rocket's scenes were a nice hint at what's to come in Isshu, and the emotional core was there. In spite of Ash not getting teared up over the depature of his long-time (human) friend Brock. I find it a great conclusion to Sinnoh, and glad they tipped their hats to the saga over the credits. It will be missed.

    Could we get translations as to what Giovanni exactly said about the TR trio? I think he's moving them into Issuh so that he'll be free to expand TR in Sinnoh. It makes sense. With Team Galactic gone, Giovanni could take over as the main criminal organization of Sinnoh, and he wants Jessie, James and Meowth out of there. Is that what he said?

    Here is a review of what happened by "Ampharos King" of Bulbagarden Forums

    Delibird finally makes another appearance, its last being over 110 episodes ago (the Yanma episode). Giovanni informs Team Rocket that they will be sent to another region. The lady on the phone is wearing a uniform similar to Giovanni's Best Wishes uniform. TRio is crying with tears of joy, believing that it was because "they" got rid of Pokemon Hunter J and Team Galactic.

    Well, we get a little cameo of Giovanni and his Persian, nothing special.

    Wow so then Giovanni doesn't even say much in regards to Team Rocket. I was kind of hoping he'd actually appear in front of Team Rocket to give them their next assignment in person. It also seems like Team Rocket's beliefs on why they were "promoted" and Giovanni's true intentions for them might differ greatly. Well I wasn't really paying attention to this episode for the Team Rocket reassignment, I was always more worried about Dawn and Piplup's goodbye ;_;

    Things I'm a little disappointed by...

    ~ Buneary and Pikachu didn't have a final moment.
    ~ Ash didn't feel sad when he and Brock split... but he didn't cry for Dawn either so its fine.
    ~ Where were Buizel, [Ash's] Infernape, Gible/Gliscor, Mamoswine, Pachirisu, Cyndaquil, Chansey, and Mime Jr.?

    I liked everythign else. I even liked Piplup in this episodewhich is rare for me to say. I found it interesting that they zoomed in on Togekiss, Staraptor and Torterra when Piplup started crying again.

    They gave screentime to Staraptor and Torterra the two pokemon that did bad against Paul.

    To be honest, I didn't expect much more than what was in the preview. So what a nice little surprise I got when Torterra did something right, Cynthia battled Flint (although when I heard the word "Champion", I thought she would be battling Takuto), Pikachu and Piplup did an awesome Volt Tackle/Hydro Pump combo, an instrumental version of LaLaLa To Your Heart was played, and Ash said "daijobu" (the equivalent of no need to worry). And was it my imagination/bad hearing, but after Ash said that, did Dawn say "getto da ze" (gotta catch 'em all)?

    Reading that made me even more sorry for Dawn. She only had to see two good friends sendoff before her departure. Oh, and Filb.de has the ending credits in their guide. I wonder of TPCI will keep it when the dub comes, but I worry it will be edited out. It's been a great ride everyone.

    When Brock left, I think a part of me and my childhood died inside.
    See you later, pal.

    The music was so touching, the fact they said each other's dreams.. I'm am so upset.

    The episode was better then I thought it would be. For a group that had boring interactions this was a pretty good farewell, I enjoyed it better then Hoenn's which surprised me, but I guess that came from the fact that Dawn actually felt something when Ash and Brock were leaving and she realized she wouldn't see them again in a very long time, and right before Dawn is about to cry Ash hit's her with her own little dorky saying. I'm also shocked Dawn stayed the whole episode and was not gone in the first five minutes.

    Team Rocket's bit's were meh, even Giovanni doesn't excite me anymore, unless he's planning on actually doing something I can live without him.

    It would have been nice if all the Pokemon were in this one. Ash's Pokemon will be seen again so them not appearing again wasn't that big of a deal, but Brock and Dawn's Pokemon will not. I guess that scene at the end of the GF was it for Dawn's six Pokemon.

    Overall a pretty good end to DP, it wasn't a perfect ending, but it wasn't the worst either and that's saying something for a saga being rushed at the end. Farewell Brock and Dawn.

    Edit: Oh I forgot to mention the Tribute during the ending credit's. I haven't watched the ending in awhile so I don't know if those little scenes of Ash, Dawn, and Brock during there best moment's were just added on but that was a nice little tribute. The Pokemon anime really is getting better so Best Wishes is sure to be amazing.

    Best episode they have ever done. I wasn't expecting their goodbyes to be that good. But it was brilliant. And I enjoyed the DP Trio tribute. Brought tears to my eyes. I can't wait for this episode in English. But now, I guess that's it for me. Soriana Pokemon! Diamond and Pearl was the best series ever. Well done writers. And Thank you for making such great characters.
    Dawn had the best ending ever. She cried, Piplup cried. she ran after the ship just like I hoped she would. She even had a better ending than Misty and that's saying something.

    OMG, that really was an emotionel ending! This episode easily ranks up there with the best Pokémon episodes apart from the league- battle eps from various leagues. This ep will surley be a classic Pokémon "season finale".

    The part when we saw them at Dawn´s house was great, because we saw them preparing for the goodbyes and eat a last breakfast etc. It was so "well, now its only hours left..." moments. Then we have the Piplup segement when he runs away and that was really sad. We saw how he really wanted the journey to continue. The TR battle was cool and I thought it suited the end that Ash and Dawn combined their signature Pokémons in a great attack.

    No Takuto, well that means that he lost to Cynthia (if they even battled, it was his prerogative but we don´t know if he did it) because she was still the defending Champion and Flint the challanger. I suppose the gap between E4 and the League- Champion is pretty huge then. But on one hand I thought this was for the best. Had Cynthia and Takuto met we would have seen the newly crowned league champion be destroyed, and THAT would have been strange (concidering what Pokémon he had), or we had seen Cynthia lost and THAT would have been even more strange. But just Cynthia defeat an E4 member is more like what we are used to. She really is number 1 in Sinnoh.

    The end at the dock was great, Dawn really did felt what the loss of her best friends meant. That this was the end of an era and a time which never would come back. Final high five! Soooo GREAT! The final end at the Kanto - Pewter City roadsign was sad in it´s own way, know the freinds from so long really are on different paths. Great montage after that.

    The music was great, it really did build up all the scenes and made it extremly emotionel to watch. Yes I was on the edge of crying, this ep really was that good.

    Total score, 9,5/10

    That was a pretty good episode, but its really dumb all the Sinnoh Pokemon didn't get seen one last time. The shot of Ash imagining he was Flint battling Cynthia was a damn tease.

    As figured, Dawn's goodbye was more about Piplup, although I did like the last scene of her waving goodbye. So Dawn doesn't give Ash anything....

    Ash/Brock's goodbye was VERY short. It was good for what it was, but damn, was that it? One last handshake? lol.

    The DP was always rather bland as a group but individually the characters had some nice moments.

    My only hope is that the English Version is just as good as the Japanese version.

    OH yeah, it was nice to see Cynthia one last time. I wish we saw the rest of everyone else too, but at least we did get the montage during the credits (TPCI better keep it in the dub and just use the English dub credits in place of the romanji) featuring cast of characters before the leave us.

    That was just an all-around great episode and a nice way to finish this saga.
    The Ash/Flint-thingy was especially cool.

    A nice ending episode with some great moments and callbacks to past events. It also had beautiful animation, especailly in the battle vs. Team Rocket and the epic Flint vs. Cynthia battle (even if some was re-used footage), which not only looked epic but was also extra awesome by the way it mirrored the Ash/Paul battle.

    The two biggest disappointments was 1. the lack of a final goodbye shot of all their Pokemon, Dawn could even have had her's out during the boat scene even if they would only be background. I also noticed that poor Sudowoodo disappeared after its battle with Team Rocket and got rejected from the small Torterra, Togikiss and Staraptor group shot, the poor rock tree. Hopefully Ash's team will get a final farewell in BW001.
    and 2. Where's Gliscor? Again hopefully BW001 will solve this mystery.

    Overall a nice end to a great Pokemon series.

    And where was Infernape when it came to the Flint vs Cynthia? He could have been inspired to fight even more and get stronger when Ash needs him again. And I'm afraid half of Ash's team got Oaked after the Elite 4. We only saw Staraptor and Torterra until the end though.

    The scene with Pikachu, Piplup, and Togekiss was so touching. When I think about it I even want to cry a little.

    play it as loud (okay, headphones) and think of it as you leaving your best friends behind and moving on to new adventures and never seeing them again. I know how that feels.

    Great episode.

    I would have expected nothing less given the overall quality of animation, direction and writing in DP. A great farewell ep and one of the top 20 in the show's history, most likely.

    Well, here it is, the final episode of Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl, and I have to say, it was pretty much the perfect episode. Everything was great here: the writing, the music, the emotion. It's all there. It pretty much brought DP to a full circle, ending right where started.

    I loved Ash imagining himself in Flint's place, battling Cynthia. And the fact that Together2007 plays in the background wasn't bad either.
    The Team Rocket battle was actually entertaining for once, and it gave Torterra and Togekiss some decent last minute screen time.
    And the all the little nods to some of the earlier DP episodes were nice, too.

    Probably one of the best parts was that the ending theme was combined with clips from over the series, pity the dub won't get that.

    Probably my only complaint is that we didn't get see all of the Sinnoh Pokemon out together one last time, or at the very least Dawn's. Seriously, where are Pachirisu, Mamoswine, and Cyndaquil?

    But ah well, that didn't stop this episode from being great. It really felt like a final episode, which is probably the best part about it. In fact, I'm almost a little upset that this isn't the final episode of the series overall; it really felt like it.

    But anyway a nearly perfect episode. And as the final shot says: Next Time, A New Beginning!

    Best part about that scene was how they played "A Meeting and a Parting". Brilliant song, for a brilliant scene.

    Also, Croagunk never appeared in Brock's last episode!

    I love how the writers teased us with Ash wanting to fight Cynthia in Flint's place with Infernape.

    Seriously, did they really want to do an Elite 4 arc but just ran out of time?

    It really seems like it should have happened. We'll never see Cynthia again most likely.

    ...Really? That's it? It was so odd seeing Brock walk off like that, going off forever. I guess less will have to be more, and the Dawn goodbye was good.

    Regardless, the Elite Four battle was the episode's highlight, it'd been even better if we saw my man Takuto. I guess he would have lost anyway though...

    Good episode, I enjoyed all the last Sinnoh team moments.
