Whats with everyone and voices? seriously,..did any of you really think they would dump the current for older VA's for black and white?
It was good episode but I felt like if Rachel and Eric were voicing Jesse and James they would be real cool, the current voices just still sounded to goofy and less serious.
My Pokemon Friend Codes:
OMG!!! They killed mijumaru... it's not cute at all. o.O
Also Pokabu... no cute poka poka... aw... Im disapointed.
This episode was so enjoyable (so was "Enter Iris and Axew", for that matter!), there's nothing to complain about. The theme song is OK, and I'm certain I'll get used to it. The fact that they kept the Japanese music was the best aspect of the episode, I hope it becomes a regular practice. The animation was amazing, and I loved all of the new VAs. I can't wait until next week! Black and White will most definitely be the best Pokémon season yet.
and how is that anti japanease??
it was stating ' the obvious! why would the Pokemon company want to play a Japanese song during the opening' your basically saying pokemon is Asian'' to every young kid who thinks ash is an American boy'' and it would ruin Pokemon massively

I loved this episode ! though there were things that irked me a bit..
First there was no reference to sinnoh , well Ash's journey to sinnoh .. I felt it was like kind of jumping from Kanto to Unova .. Even when Trip said something about the "Unova League" Ash said "Just like in Kanto" as if he didn't just compete in the SL ..
Also Pikachu lossing to Snivy .. but hey you have to start a rivalry some how?
Oshawott is damn cute ! His voice is fitting
Oak said about sinnoh and there was no reference to Hoenn in Sinnoh's opening episodes
My Anime List
Spoiler:- My Claims:
well there seems to be a gap it seems like ash is living completely different lifes''
unova seems like the region ash went to after OI
hoenn seems like the region after johto
and sinnoh seems like the region after hoenn
since ash's maturity hit its peak in dp and the whole fandom presumed he was 15
but in bw he was confirmed as 10' and ash is a acting the same way he did in kanto accept he isn't hot headed nmore
Watching some of the dub right now and it's not too terrible. The opening song is, but I didn't have any expectations that it'd be good. Trip has a pretty nice voice.
I like that Trip acts like Gary did in the Kanto saga.
It's nice to actually know what Team Rocket is saying, and that Giovanni still thinks Jessie, James, and Meowth are complete morons.
I'm pretty sure that the reason why the intro was chopped was to accomodate two commercial breaks as opposed to one break during the original Japanese broadcast. I'm probably wrong though.

No, I'm not giving anyone credit for my team pose because I made it myself.
I liked the episodes overall, infact i love them. not so keen on Prof. Oaks voice actor to be honest or James's.
Wow Pokemon USA going old school with "Who's that Pokemon" segments, those were phased out half way through Hoen if I remember. Pretty good on the dub only problem I have is their shortening of of the opening, the opening song, & the use of all the Pokemon highlighted instead of the silhouettes being revealed as the shows premiered.

I could live with James's voice, but the Oak voice sounds like Gary trying to put on an old man voice! I also wish that they had at least a translated version of the opening. Dare I say it, I almost like the English Battle Frontier opening better!
Let's all hope for the best from Best Wishes! Let's hope our wishes for it come true!
See what I did there?
The intro is original, and the 3D animations of Pokemon contrast well with the black-white-grey surroundings. Quite artistic. The Zekrom appearances were majestic, as they should be. I am very satisfied with the increased appearances of Giovanni. We're in for some ride in Unova, folks.

I thought the dub was pretty good, they kept all the background music the same as the original (which is great). Trip's voice seemed to match and Iris doesnt seem like she's gonna be too annoying. It felt great to hear the original Giovanni voice from back in the day, even to see Whos that Pokemon.
I'm enjoying the new anime, mostly because it reminds me we're slowly getting closer to BW being released in America.
A few things right off the bat.
-I don't like Trip, he's cold like Paul, but not as good at it.
-I do like that he's got a hobby in photography.
-I'm getting sick of Pikachu getting sick/stolen/lost at the beginning of series'.
By the way, what the hell are 'the boonies'?

I can't believe they actually brought back Who`s that Pokemon!!! It's like the original anime all over again!
