    So it seems like Team Rocket won't do anyting in this city. 10 seconds in a ep is really embarrassing.
    Aloe's husband was wrong when he brought the Desumasu mask to the museum, and that's why the mask was doing troubles, until Aloe arrived and saved the day with Miruhog. Now it's the gym battle time.

    Yes they will...

    Kidashi explicitly showed a meteorite in the museum, along with the skeleton and fossil. Then we saw the Team Rocket scene with Flint reappearing and Jessie, James and Meowth having a flashback when they got the Meteorite Dummy...

    It's TOO obvious that they're going to swap the fake for the real when Ash has his gym battle...

    Anyway, for the episode 4/10. Horrible! It was 100% the Darumakka episode rebooted. The only thing that saved it was the appearance of Aloe. Who Kidashi apparently refers to as 'mamma' :S That's pretty big reference to Big Momma! :S

    Anyway:
    Ash and co arrive at Shippou City.
    - Well haven't we seen this city already in the previous episode? No need to see the whole thing again...
    Ash wants his gym battle, but the Museum is locked...
    - How typical...
    Scene with Kidashi getting chased by a Kabuto fossil...
    - Yawn...
    Kidashi breaks through the door, and says that he was chased by a fossil, but nothings there...
    - Yawn...
    Kidashi explains about the museum and how it suddenly became haunted: flashback. We see a small Will o' wisp following Kidashi when lights fall out.
    - Yawn...
    Police come to inspect the scene, yet find nothing.
    - YAWN!
    Iris and Dento want to help Kidashi out, Ash is frustrated since he wants his gym battle
    - Oh god... He's officially a dunce..
    The 'Mystery Inc' goes inside museum and get a tour: fossils, knights armory, a METEORITE, a Desukan coffin, with nothing in it, and a Dragonite skeleton, ow and a Desumasu mask.
    - Interesting.. Not.. We've seen this things in the preview..
    Team Rocket scene, Flint returns and tells them they're going to snatch the meteorite from the museum and swap it with a dummy that TR recently acquired.
    - Interesting enough, nice to see their plot actually doing something criminal again, and rather then just only being mysterious.
    Lights fall out in the museum, a possessed knight's armor comes walking in. A long and lengthy battle that goes absolutely nowhere ensues. Pikachu uses Quick Attack and Volt Tackle, Mijumaru uses Water Gun a couple of times and we see a shimmer of Desumasu.
    - Not to exciting to watch.. The thing just keeps getting up again and it gets repetitive.
    They go back to the desert exhibit and see that the Desumasu mask has tears.. and it begins to move..
    - WTF...
    Suddenly they hear footstamps, enter the Dragonite part 2! Somehow they expurge Desumasu and Kisashi opens the closed case where the mask was set in.
    - Yawn, the Dragonite skeleton really doesn't do anything threatening.
    The mask sets itself on Dento and he gets a deep voice and starts doesn't listen to Ash and does a Will o' Wisp.
    - Could've been interesting, and I liked the lower voice thing, but lead nowhere since...
    Aloe walks in, sends out Miruhoggu. Miruhoggu is a shining hog yes he is and suddenly Desumasu is a good pokemon...
    - Oh brother.. Another misunderstood pokemon?? Doesn't that remind you of Darumakka much?
    Apparently Kidashi put the Desumasu mask in the museum though it wasn't officially on his display list. By putting it behind glass, the Desumasu couldn't get to it. Ow did I say it lost it by momentarily falling asleep on a museum cart?
    - Asspull! What the crap! Ash even said that he finds Desumasu cute! I don't need to be a translator to know what 'Desumasu' followed by 'kawaii' means...
    Ash and co leave the museum but Ash gets to challenge the gym leader in the next episode.
    - Like we didn't know this scene was going to happen
    The group says goodbye to Desumasu as it flies of in the distance
    - Oh brother...

    Seriously, this episode is like a combination of the Darumakka and the Ishizumai episode put together. The misinterpreted pokemon who acts fiendishly at first and even explicitly pronounces anger, but is eventually a cute pokemon from the Darumakka episode, and the 'lost the thing that completes it' from the Ishizumai episode, being Ishizumai's rock, and Desumasu's mask.

    In fact, I'll lower this episode to a 3/10. One big yawn fest that we've seen way too many times before. The only thing that were exciting to watch were the Team Rocket scene, Miruhoggu flashing everybody, and the preview for the upcoming episodes. The plot for this episode was horribly executed, it dragged on and on with nothing really happening.
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    I love this episode! I've been looking forward to it since it was released in Japan. I love plots that incorperate mind control/brainwashing/etc. It might seem kinda weird, but I like it.

    I enjoyed the episode enough.
    Good to see the opening complete (especially since I missed the last few episodes) and the episode was interesting and easy ton understand, even in a different language or mute.
    As Serebii said, I had high hopes of a Desukaan appearance following the sight of its sarcophagus but Desumas was good enough for me.
    I also presumed that the possesion of Dento would be a more longer and important plot point but it was quite short.
    All in all, a good fun episode to round off an awesome year of D/P and Best Wishes.

    Bit of a shame about the lack of Desukan action, yeah- that would have made a nice climax to the episode.

    Nicely done little pre-gym filler, with some excellent moments; Desumasu's mask crying was a nice touch, and Aloe looks decent. Judging by that trailer at the end, roll on 2011!

    I couldn't watch this episode but just seeing the epi pictures and Aloe appearing makes it 11/10 for me!

    I'm sorry but everyone else said Miruhog is using Flash i knew it was Illuminate, good to see Aloe appeared.

    I haven't seen it yet but I'd say no since Chaoboo debuted last episode so it would be colored in this episode. Next episode will probably be the change in the opening.



    As for the episode...was really hoping James would get Desumasu. But no it just wanted it mask.

    The Team Rocket plot is slowly thickening. They may just steal the item in the next episode.

    Aloe appeared and saved the day...kind of.

    Desumasu left and was happy in the end I guess. Ash challenged Aloe to a gym battle in the end I think.

    Overall, not really interesting for me. It had Desumasu which was nice. Aloe probably was cool too, haven't seen the video yet just pictures on serebii.

    It was a nice episode but I really wish things went I how I thought they would.

    This was yet another sub-par BW episode that I did not enjoy.

    I'm just glad Oshawott got an appearance, it's the only thing getting me through some of these episodes.

    When are Team Plasma going to make their big debut? They've already passed up their first actual appearance in K-Town, and we're seeing no signs of their members anywhere in the city.

    I just hope they don't push their appearances too later into the anime. Otherwise we can't anticipate it as much. :/
    Long ago, when the deity Pokemon of time was born, so did time. Without it, the world would just stand still, no motion or life to make happiness. There is no substitute for the gift of time, which we must use to make good on this earth...

    Even though no one was in an actual battle I think it was cool that they used the Battle Pinch music.

    Team Plasma has been reference to by Giovanni twice, not by name but as a "mysterious organization". They are set to appear though in the next month or so. So they are appearing soon.

    Something that I am getting bored of is Ash getting upset he cant get his gym battle in the beginning. How many times was that done already (including DP)? Same old intro, btw.

    From the screenshots, I notice that Iris and Dent seem to argue a lot.

    In short, I still don't like Iris, and see why she is there. She's not helping Ash along in anyway, and has too much of a superiority complex.

    This episode seems boring because it lacks much real action. And like others said, its between Bel and the Gym Battle, both which have plenty of action.

    But its true that comparetively, this episode is improved when compared to gym leader intro episodes of the past.

    Unova might the first region we see all gym battles unaffected by TR-caused commotions! (And even if they do, its grand-scale now)

    Disappointed I didn't hear the battle music though, I wanted to ask which theme it was from. The soothing/creepy music fitted this episode's theme though (and yes, I realised, after reviewing past episodes, that Tower of Heaven is overplayed. Now what will they run in Tower of Heaven XD.)

    Anyway, not related to this episode, but does anyone know the "battle action" music I heard (Last one I could remember was when Sunglasses used Stone Edge for the first time in that Garbage Bag / Egg episode)

    So it's summer once again for me, so back to episode reviews. I haven't watched an episode in a few weeks (just kept an eye on the screenshots and read what others have written), so I don't want to jump to too many conclusions about anything.

    This is a weird episode, but not so b/c of the ghostly happenings. I wasn't quite sure what to make of the "feud" b/w Iris and Cilan, whether it was just for comedic purposes, or there was a also a deeper meaning to it, relating to the subject matter. It became less and less funny as the argument b/c more and more heated, until Ash finally said, "Whatever" to one of Cilan's explanations-meaning, in the end, it really didn't matter whether the happenings were supernatural or science-related. Cilan eventually admitted as much that he was saying these explanations not based upon a careful inspection of what was going on around him, but b/c he just believed in science and was making up explanations to fit the situation (he eventually said that he didn't believe what he was saying anymore). I'm not a big fan of that sort of thing, and Ash himself isn't really that type of character (he's usually very honest, even if that means being stupidly honest at times); it's a little outside my realm of understanding to see that type of argument in this episode, and I guess I was a little happy that Ash and I were somewhat on the same page on that. I know that this sort of thing is common in kids shows, so I'm not criticizing the episode for seeing this sort of thing. But, on the flip side, I never understand why these things pop up in kids shows to begin with, so I'm not going to praise it.

    Another thing that often shows up in kids shows is to make adults seem like cowards or real suck-ups. The museum guy is not someone you're likely to meet in real life, and he's the definition of a kid's show adult. I guess what was most interesting is that he's married to the gym leader lady, and the two must have quite an interesting relationship, just based on their differences in personality. You get the feeling the gym leader lady really runs things in that marriage. I hope you'll humor me on this one, but in one of my classes this past semester, my teacher was this really pretty, funny lady, but she wasn't married-and she wasn't the type of lady who would have objected to a marriage, I don't think, as she talked about some of her luck on dates. I had some fun with that (I've never been on a date myself), and called her my gf on facebook. When I told her about it at the end of the semester, she wasn't too thrilled. And really it wasn't the right thing to do. But I always meant to ask her why she wasn't married or didn't have any luck there (I actually did, but she didn't answer). Looking at the marriage that's in this episode, I wonder how realistic it is; it really might be, so that's fun to think about.

    This episode didn't really make me laugh nor did it leave a lasting impression on me, but it did keep my interest. I have to admit that I'm skeptical how the pokemon had so much power, seemingly, but it was helpless to retrieve the mask on its own, and hence this misunderstood story. But it's still an okay episode.

    Seems like a good episode from what I can tell from the screenshots lol. The only thing that bothered me was Dento's bow tie seemed a bit off in a way...it looked smaller than normal =/
