    Tell me about it. I want to see just how surprised some of these people get from this.

    Its funny how people didn't realize Iris didn't have a bike at first. Nice to see that gag finally dead.

    I still think Iris sounds like a slightly different take on May's voice. I see the Lyra vibes too.

    I just watched the first and second episode, not the entire thing though, just the parts that interested me like the opening to the first ep, the TR scenes, and Pidove's capture. My god, the dub is amazing now. They don't add their stupid music which is one of the things that turned me off from the show in the first place. Plus, when Pidove was caught, they used the Wild Encounter music (or the trainer battle, not sure) music. That was epic. Plus Who's That Pokemon is back!

    I'm probably not gonna watch the entire show, but like I will watch certain events that interest me, like important TR scenes in the future, and Cilan's debut. And episodes that look good like the Ash VS Trip battle.

    But I'm finding Ash's voice more annoying than usual, like there's so much enphasis it annoys me. Also during the Pidove capture, whenever Pidove would use an attack ash would say what it was.

    Pidove uses quick attack
    Ash: That's a quick attack
    Pidove uses gust
    Ash: That's a gust
    Pidove uses Air Cutter
    Ash: That's an air cutter.

    But yeah, the Black and White anime is off to a really good start.

    I know there's a lot of older members watching this still, but try not to forget who this is aimed at. At least Ash calling out what each attack was helped a little bit (honestly, Air cutter has so many damn animations it's sometimes a tad tricky to know when it's actually being used).

    Also, it's late, and I don't feel like doing this myself, but could someone go back and check to see how similar the dubbed TR motto is to the raw TR motto. I'm not going to criticize it, I just want to see how close we got.

    Bulbapedia hasn't confirmed Eileen stevens, and to me, Iris sounds nothing like Lyra, and she sound like May's latest voice actress.

    Either way, Iris saying what a kid, is better than such a child. And i think Axew's voice is nice, so it's pronounced, Axe-you, kind of like, get better ratings, or we'll Axew.

    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

    Yeah, she does say firey.
    Also, after Ash catches Mamepato, this is what went off in my head:
    You are now free to dance around like an idiot.

    I want to say Iris sounds familiar, I know her voice actress voiced Lyra, but who else has her actress voiced?

    I wonder how Dent will sound...in about a month or so we'll find out!
    Let's all hope for the best from Best Wishes! Let's hope our wishes for it come true!

    See what I did there?

    It's not really confirmed that it's eileen.

    Unless we get a preview for the series in general which has Dento speaking, we'll have to wait about 3 weeks.

    And seeing Oshawott stalking Ash, was cure to see.

    Actually Juniper's VA, is Khristine Hvam.

    Iris's is unknown, as of yet, I just listened to Lyra's voice again, and if it is Eileen, she's using a different sounding voice.

    Oshawott, is kind of cute, It's true Mijumaru's voice sounded cute, but Lisa oritz did a good job, and at first i liked it, now, it's okay, so it'll take a while to get used to.

    Well I'm likeing this so far and I'm happy to see the return of "Who's that Pokemon?" Iris's VA sounds really good I like her already and Axew sounds adorable! I also love Oshawott. Team Rocket being serious for a change is nice but will take some getting used to. But all in all I really enjoyed this dub and I can't wait to hear Cilan and the three elemental monkeys.

    Episode 2, what I deem the true opening to the new saga as it is when Ash begins his journey.

    I think the main talking points of this episode were Iris and Team Rocket. Iris seems a really warming character to me but can show her superiority too much which mainly comes from calling Ash a kid. Her Axew hasn't really participated much so I'll refrain from commenting on it till I see some more action from it because I think it wouldn't be fair.

    Team rocket has been given a breath of fresh air. New uniforms, new pokemon, just a general new start for them which is something they needed but it is sad that all their other pokemon had to be left as a consequence however I believe there is some hope yet which I will mention shortly. When they met the 'gang' they became even more serious, and im sure the motto will grow on me the more I hear it. The battle was a surprise for them to beat Ash's Pidove and the exit was good from I think I will miss 'We're Blasting off again!!!'

    Returning to an earlier comment I think Team Rocket will return to their usual ways as the series progresses only because of Gionvanni's comment about luring out the native villianous team. I feel they are being used by him (poor things) and once the team is lured out they are going to be thrown to the side once again and Pikachu will be their only goal once again, or I may be completely wrong.

    The only part of the episode which annoyed me was Ash's sudden Memory Lapse. I know we have to have some kind of tutorial about catching pokemon but it seems they are rubbing it in our faces a little. Like when Iris kept calling him a kid it kept reminding me that Ash has gone back to someone who had just began his journey when infact he has been in 4 different leagues. I will let this slide if this doesnt last very long, but if it does it will really annoy me but it won't outweight how much I enjoy the episode.

    Overall, nice episode .

    Warning: The following statement should not be taking seriously. You have been warned.

    (Continuation from Episode 1 discussion)

    It looks like when Tobias' Zekrom returned for the second time at Juniper's lab it was in pity. He returned Pikachu's electric moves maybe because he thought he had suffered enough.
    Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

    Iris' VA does a great job. She sounds totally natural in the role and emotes very well. Hopefully, Cilan's VA does a good job too.

    I loved Oshawott's voice! It was so cool and cute. This episode made me fall in love with Oshawott! I am going to start with it in my game!

    That was actually the lines in the original though.

    I was really hoping Iris would be a more advanced trainer, then again I guess she could be, and I just don't know yet. I really can't take Ash and his stupidity though. I know they like rebooting with every generation but my god they make him a complete moron.

    And then the new Paul, whatever his name is. Come on now, Pikachu, the one that tied a Latios, can't beat a brand new poke with just quick attack or hit with iron tail?

    Iris's VA does a very nice job it's a very natural voice, still a little miffed that they decided to change Kibago to Axew, but Axew works just as well and certainly fits.
