Merry Dentmas to all, and to all a good night!
-As last episode showed, Shippou City is colorful as fuck.
-The gym is closed. Of course. And as usual, Ash takes it upon himself to insist on getting in anyway.
-A scream is heard, and...the opening rolls in! It's the world's least impressive cliffhanger!
-Are my ears deceiving me, or is this an orchestral version of the BW League theme?
-So the museum set up a new exhibit and strange things started happening shortly afterwards. Of course.
-Iris is quite serious about the situation. Dento is as laid back as ever. This...does not please Iris. And Ash just wants his damned gym battle(which both Iris and Dento seem to agree is unreasonable at the moment!).
-Iris immediately recognizes the Dragonite skeleton as a Dragonite! Apparently her dragon-village's knowledge doesn't stop at the dragons of Isshu.
-I just noticed that we're getting the damned Tower of Heaven music again. I like this track and all, but it's starting to feel like we're hearing it every other episode.
-The director guy mentions something about Deathkhan when talking about the sarcophagus. But apparently it's not a real Deathkhan coffin, since it looks all wooden on the inside.
-And now they're looking at the Deathmas mask. Looks like the episode is finally going to get interesting!
-Or not. Now they're at the GIANT LIBRARY FROM HELL which features as Aloe's gym puzzle in the games. (well, okay, it's only hellish if you can't read the language any of the questions are in, but still)
-Leave it to Ash to ruin the mood by getting hungry.
-Campout at the museum: Best idea ever, or bestest idea ever?
-Time for the weekly reminder that Ash's egg exists. Yawn.
-It's also time for the weekly 1 to 3 minutes of TR. Flint is back, and plans are discussed.
-Back at museumcamp, Iris wakes everyone up because a strange dark fog is rolling in. And one of the suits of armor is walking around on its own, but who cares about that?
-Halfway point already? Man, I had better see some Dentmas soon or heads are gonna roll.
-I'm not entirely sure what's being said here, other than the bit where Dento is calmly talking about poltergeists. Which I find hilarious, if only because he actually says "poltergeist" in English(/German).
-Seriously, I know Dento's supposed to be the unflappable one of the group, but he's being way too calm about this whole thing.
-Ash has Pikachu Volt Tackle the armor, which...puts itself back together! Having learned that Volt Tackling the armor does jack shit, Ash then has Pikachu...use Volt Tackle on the armor again. Great going, genius. But this time it actually makes some sort of will o' the wisp come out, so I guess he wasn't entirely stupid?
-Ash has Mijimaru put out the will-o-wisp with Watergun, which works...then the helmet of the armor starts chasing the museum guy around as Dento calmly explains something. Seriously Dento, show fear or surprise or something. You're freaking me out.
-Now the helmet's taken care of, which...made the sprinklers come on for a moment? What?
-Deathmas' mask is crying. SURELY THIS MUST MEAN SOMETHING.
-Now the mask is banging against the glass! And I know what that means...Dento's possession isn't really going to have much time spent on it at all, is it?
-Dento got possessed not because Deathmas smashed its mask out of the cage, but rather because Dento told the museum guy to open the exhibit? ...ah. Ahahah. Ahahahhaha. Ha?
-At least Dento got a suitably deep and creepy possession voice.
-There's talk about the mask, including a line from...Aloe!
-And now Aloe sends out Miruhog, the Crossing Guard Pokemon.
-It's official: The Dento possession plot was stupidly short.
-Now it's time for Ash to scan DEATHMAS, THE LITERALLY A HUMAN SOUL Pokemon. I'm not sure how it's a Pokemon despite literally being a human soul, but hey, I'm not a Gamefreak employee.
-Deathmas' voice is way too high-pitched for my tastes.
-Blah blah apologizing to Deathmas blah.
The episode itself was okay, but it feels wasted. So much more could have been done with the various Dento possession/museum haunting plots, but it all got resolved rather generically. Ah well, at least we got a flood of awesome Pixiv fanart for Dentmas. And isn't that all that really counts? no, not really, but I'll take whatever consolation prizes I can get
Yes, that is a lego Freddie Mercury.
The animators know how to promote the episodes. I was interesting in knowing what would happen with Dento-Deathmask, but it played out like a boring mystery show. This is why I won't fall for the false hype in their episode previews that actually end up being mundane. At least I liked the little bit between Iris and Dento.
So I see at the end of the episode Aloe doesn't have her apron one (yes instead of talking about the other things in the episode I choose Aloe and her Apron).
Anyway it looks like it was edited by the animators, looking at her body in those scenes it's like it's in the shape of where the apron used to be i.e she looks large. Oh, well it was nice to finally she her in the anime she's really cute, I can't wait to until the Gym Battle episode, which airs next year right?

I don't know if this is pointed out or not, but I can't but help noticing the similarity between this episode, and Night at the Museum. The episode wasn't too good though, but somewhat satisfactory for me.
I don't know what some of you were expecting, but this episode was pretty good.
The scenes of the armor/Dragonite skeleton attacking the group has never happened before in any previous arc, and Iris/Dento bickering is an interesting quirk.
It otherwise was a standard set-up ep for a Gym leader to debut. Much better than just seeing Aloe for no reason and TR stealing things from the museum like what would have happened in any previous arc.
I didn't mind, it seemed pretty amusing.
Spoiler:- "2011":-But man, that 2011 preview sure got me psyched for the future episodes!
Funny, I had actually forgotten about that fact. Well, I did play for a short time to get my feet wet, but I'd sort of forgotten about the library. Which is rather an amusing thought seeing as the library is quite annoying if you don't understand Japanese... Oh... that's what you were referring to... oops.-Or not. Now they're at the GIANT LIBRARY FROM HELL which features as Aloe's gym puzzle in the games.
I'll have to watch that again, that sounds kind of amusing.-I'm not entirely sure what's being said here, other than the bit where Dento is calmly talking about poltergeists. Which I find hilarious, if only because he actually says "poltergeist" in English(/German).
Gotta say, it was a decent episode, not entirely sure what to expect, but I should have realized it wouldn't really be that amazing. Still it was cool to actually see the museum, library, Deathmas, and Aloe. I'll have to watch again with subs... if only to listen to the dispute between Iris and Denton regarding Supernatural explanations and rationnal explanations.
I'm beginning to notice something else; unless the episode involves a Gym Battle or a Rival Battle, Ash seems to play second fiddle for a good chunk of the episode. Has anyone else noticed this?
"I'm not really here that much, if at all. I've moved on, to a different site."
"But, it's been fun. I'll come back every so often, but for the most part, I won't post much."
It wasn't a bad episode, but I feel like it was over-hyped and stuck between two big episodes.
This signature is just a plot device to keep me moving.
Very cool episode imo. Love Desumasa.
One question though, was Desumasa's silhouette in the opening for this episode as I have never noticed it before.
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)
This episode was meh. I was surprised that Kidachi is married to Aloe. I can tell that she's definitely the dominator in the bedroom since Kidachi seems like a wuss. Iris & Dent bickering was annoying.
The trailers for the episodes seem to take the Micheal Bay movie approach, where they create hype with an interesting preview, only when we actually sit down and watch it it turns out to be lackluster or just plain horrible.Uh...how was it over-hyped?
So is Ash supposed to be the hero anymore? In most of the episodes this arc he seems to just be the sidekick now, who tries to save the day, but winds up getting his butt handed to him only for an older character to come in and take care of the problem within seconds.
Oh gee, the big looming threat turns out to be a little guy who was just looking for something that belongs to him. How original. >_>'
"Please don't look at me that way, I'm a very shy little girl!"
After re-watching it and everything. It was pretty enjoyable. Nothing happened much for the plot but it was funny and somewhat heart warming at the end.
I really enjoyed Dento's and Iris's back-and-forth on what was going on. Dento kept on trying to explain things scientifically and it gave me a few laughs. Iris thought it was a curse all along.
Kidachi is rather amusing too.
Desumasu's mask crying was kind of freaky, it almost felt like a real horror movie or something, of course probably would be more freaky if it was crying blood but then that wouldn't probably work for a kid's show and all.
Still wish Desumasu was James' and Team Rocket were doing their thing in this episode but oh well.

I really liked this episode, it was kinda creepy too. There were points I was starting to wonder if maybe it was getting too freaky for young children. The only thing that annoyed me was Dento's constant scientific reasoning....just admit it's a ghoulie already! Sheesh!
I had hoped Ash would catch a Desumasu during his adventure but it was not to be sadly. I hope Desukan appears later in an episode when they're at the desert and is a complete badass.
We've known that for a while,
- Desumasu turned out to be cute
- Kidachi being scared
- Iris and her senses
- I like Possessed Dento
- Pretty dull
- Dento-masu (Dento when he was possessed) wasn’t for long
- Dento being in denial

"Ever heard of something called Pokebeach.com
I've been doing reviews since episode 3 of best wishes, i decided to put it on here because i like serebii as well, It's not exactly the same
I go straight into it, then my views are in brackets, and i do good and bad points, people like Juptorou and Sabonea do their dot point reviews, they are still reviews, if i want to do my reviews here as well, i can.
I'm not trying to annoy you, since i've become a frequent serebii-ite, i thought i could post my reviews here, if you don't want me to i wont.
Sorry, for the misunderstanding."

Well I finally managed to watch the episode, and I noticed right away that Shippou City looked terrible. I mean, it was really colorful. In the games, the place looks pretty simple but the anime made it seem crazy. I'm wondering who it was that suggested that little change. Anyway, Ash seemed to want just one things: to challenge the Shippou City Gym. Dento knew exactly where the Gym was however (in the Shippou City museum), so he led the way. Funny, when I talked about Dento possibly knowing about the other Gym Leaders in Isshu, I got flamed. It looks like he knew something about the Gym after all, however. I wasn't surprised to see the Shippou City museum, closed off for the day when Ash and friends got there though. I mean, things like this always happen. Then someone screamed and we saw this really skinny man being chased by a flying Kabuto fossil. LOLWOTT? Well, at least you can't accuse the writers of being unoriginal. The skinny man burst through the museum door and told Ash and friends the story about the "flying fossil". Wooooooo! *wiggles fingers* Ash and friends, being the nosy little gossips that they are, went inside to investigate. They saw the fossil, but everything about it seemed normal. At some cafe, the skinny man discussed the new exhibit at the museum. He was apparently checking everything in there one night, but saw a strange ball of fire and he ran away. He returned the next day, and then the fossil chased him and he met Ash and friends. Iris talked about it being a curse, while Dento talked about wanting to solve the mystery using science. Ash wanted to battle the Gym Leader, but the guy told him that "Mama" was out on an errand. He then introduced himself as Kidachi: the Gym Leader's (Aloe's) husband. Um, those two are married? That's...interesting. Anyway, Kidachi gave Ash and friends a tour of the museum and we all learned more about the Kabuto fossil, Dragonite's skeleton, and a meteorite. How educational! Ash and friends then saw suits of armor, and then a weird sarcophagus. I was wondering what that was, but it looked a lot like a Desukan's sarcophagus. It was just a replica though. Ash then saw a mask and Kidachi said it was a Desumasu mask. Iris however, got this weird vibe from it. Creepy. Kidachi showed them the library, and then Dento requested that they stay there for the night to observe "supernatural stuff". Woooooooo! *wiggles fingers again* Kidachi agreed, and it looked like they were going to have a sleep over in the museum! I was half-expecting Ash and Dento to have a pillow fight, but that didn't happen. Aww. Meanwhile, Team Rocket appeared somewhere in Shippou City and Flint gave them their next mission: to swap the real meteorite at the museum with a fake. Wow, that's just bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S!).
Later that night, Iris woke Ash up because she felt a strange wind or something; I got the feeling that Iris was really superstitious. Then some weird purple fog rolled in and Kidachi looked scared beyond his wits. Then one of the suits of armor appeared and Dento tried to explain it scientifically. Lol. Pikachu attacked the suit of armor with Quick Attack , but it just put itself together again, like magic. Wooooooo! *wiggles fingers once more* Then that ball of fire that Kidachi talked about appeared again and it started chasing him. That's some crazy shiz right there. Ash sent out Mijumaru (finally, geez!) and it used Water Gun on the ball of fire while the suit of armor's head started chasing Kidachi. Pikachu's Iron Tail attack ended the issue though. Thank goodness. It started to rain and then Kidachi and the others heard this weird noise that made the hairs on the back of my neck, stand up straight. As Ash examined the Desumasu mask, be noticed that it was crying. I liked Dento's theory about the humidity in the air though haha. The mask started moving and then the Dragonite skeleton appeared! It started trying to punch through the display glass but Dento faaaabulously sent out his Yanappu and had it use Bullet Seed against it. It worked, but something fell out of the skeleton. Eww! Then Kidachi opened the display glass and that freaky Desumasu mask attached itself to Dento's face. Pfft, what next? Apparently, Dento was possessed and he attacked Ash and Iris. Iris tried talking to the mask, and it said that it was mad because it was "caged". So the mask tried to kill Ash and Iris, because it was stuck behind glass? Sure, that makes sense. Just then, Aloe appeared! Wow, she looked good. She asked Kidachi where he got the mask, and then Dento had the skeleton march forward. I liked seeing Aloe send out her Miruhoggu to use Illuminate and find the Desumasu; it's voice sounded eerie though. Aloe was able to guess what had happened to make Desumasu angry, and then it seemed that Kidachi apologized to the Desumasu for the misunderstanding involving the mask being placed in the museum. Personally, I thought that Desumasu should have apologized for trying to kill Ash and friends, but I'll take what I can get. Desumasu then forgave Kidachi's mistake and it disappeared into the morning sky. I really liked the music that played while it flew away. Anyway, Ash challenged Aloe to a Gym battle, and Aloe accepted Ash's challenge. Wow, that was one weird episode. I didn't really think that the plot of the episode was very entertaining, but I guess it did a good job of showcasing the Shippou City museum. I'm giving this episode a rating of 6.5/10, since it was just average. Stay faaaabulous~
I a couple of laughs out of Iris & Dent arguing over it being a curse or just coincidences, but it in the end it looks like Iris was right, other than that it was your standard Ghost Pokemon terrorizing episode which we've seen done already. On another note looks like we finally managed to fill in all the Pokemon silhouettes in the opening animation.

This episode was ok... It was cool to see Desumasu and Miruhog for the 1st time. It was great to finally see the Illuminate ability put to use in the Anime. It was funny when Dent kept trying so hard to come up with scientific explainations for what was happening in the museum. It was interesting to see Dent be controlled by Desumasu's mask. It was cool to see Gym Leader Aloe for the 1st time. It was interesting to see possessed fossils and armor chasing the Gang around.
I thought it was a decent episode. Nice to see Ash & Co. finally arrive at Nacrene City. The Yamask thing was nice and the episode title is a nice pun. Cilan and Iris were pretty funny.
