The raw episode made me cry, and so did the dubbed episode as I understood it more.
I guess a good metaphor to compare the episode to real life would be like how a woman loses her dog, and now her dog is mad without the commands of it owner.
The thing is, I wouldn't have thought this episode was quite as bad if they had just finished the battle between Gothitelle and Snivy. Instead of the girl suddenly appearing out of nowhere and explaining that she had been sent there with everyone else, they should have defeated Gothitelle, been returned to reality, and then had the girl walk up to comfort Gothitelle and explain everything.

This is still one of the best episodes in BW so far, in my opinion. And the Dub made it even better, the story line was nice, Snivy got some battles, Gothitelle sounded nice and now they've headed for Castelia City, where they will spend a good, 2/3 episodes, yay!

This episode was really good. I'm a sucker for episodes/movies that make me cry. I could really feel the emotion when Sally reunited in Gothitelle's world. It's amazing how much they have been through together with the Sail boat and meeting up to this point.
The music felt enriching as well when it came up to all the actions and points, which I give credit for. Its what I like about animation, on how theyre moving us with the small points we don't think about.
Really good episode once it picked up. Still upset to hear about the recent new title (showing the status for the two episodes in between this).
This was a very sad episode. It was one of those eps that seemed to be longer then the normal 20 mins. However I think it was because the good eps seem to suck you in. I am confused though was Gothitelle dead and it was a ghost or what?
Decent episode. I liked seeing Gothitelle & the Skyarrow Bridge here. It was saddening with Gothitelle and to see a Pokémon and human cry together was a pretty big moment here. So, I don't think this was the best episode, but it didn't seem like the worst.

To me it was an awesome, awesome episode!
The best and my favorite so far in the Black and White saga. It was touching and sweet and I teared up watching it. I love this show that it has that power to make a 31 year old man tear up lol. thats why I am a fan and will always watch pokemon.
and haters..really? guess you all just want battles and action...
It made me like gothitelle alot more now.

Awwww loved this episode although i kinda guessed at the start that sally was the older woman grown up. Liked an episode that wasnt focused on Ash/Iris/Clian and on the character of the day felt like old times ^_^. And Snivy got some screen time as well.
Nice episode... the best part was the little battle between Snivy and Gothitelle
Gothitelle's voice was alright, didn't sound that great at the start though, I think it sounds better when it's happy.
The captain's voice I think could have been done differently, he sounded old to me but he didn't look all that old. He still looks awesome though, that beard...just so awesome.
Little Sally and Adult Sally's voices sounded suitable for them. Although there was nothing really about the characters to give them unique voices so they just sounded like a kid and an adult, nothing wrong with that.
I didn't really care to watch this episode again at the start(Since I already knew what happened and everything and there wasn't anything I was looking forward to seeing in English besides the voices of the characters), but after a little bit I got into it. It was an enjoyable episode, not a ton of action but Pokemon isn't always about action.
That was 1 weird gothitelle
How it all started...
I love Gothitelle even more after watching the dubbed episode.. Over all, it was a really enjoyable episode and the story actually pulled me in.
Kingler, my friend. No matter what, you will always remain my favourite Water type. You shouldn't have missed out on the Sinnoh League and I look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the near future.
There you are, I see you in the back there!
The only interesting thing was that there are indeed traveling doctors... so Brock has hopes?

I really enjoyed this episode. It wasn't very action-filled, but it was a nice change of pace from the previous episode. Gothitelle's voice could have been better, and there could have been soppier music (I didn't tear up at all). But overall, it was nice, and left a message that stung.
Very enjoyable story, it's nice to see an episode that focuses on the past. Abit disappointed in that it took place in Gothitelle's memory's instead of the actual past would've been interesting to see adult Sally recognizing Ash when he almost bumped into her.

I didn't like tis episode, probably because I don't like pokemon that look like humans :/

I wish this episode wasn't a "filler" episode. Gothitelle should have been introduced in a much better and meaningful way.

This episode was pretty strange. It was cool seeing Gothitelle for the first time. It was interesting to see it's past world. It was sad to see her and her best friends were seperated. Glad that they got reunited at the End of the Episode and that the gang could finally cross the bridge to get to Castelia.
I kind of hope that Gothitelle appears again someday...
best episode of the black and white saga to date! i loved it, the musical score was soo amazing
Compared to the ducklett episode, I really like this one. Maybe because I like the odd episodes like this and "Address Unown", maybe because it aired the day I got married last year and it'll always hold a special place, but I enjoyed it. The time travel was interesting, and I really felt for gothitelle.
