    I realize that, I just wouldn't think it's fair to Japan to air the episodes other places when they didn't even air it there first. I still haven't given up hope though. The fishing episode aired after all, plus they said they'd air these episodes later anyways.

    Well the Whiscash one was focused on Earthquakes (heck. Even Whiscash and Barboach are based off of the catfish in Japan's mythology that causes earthquakes, but I think that one with that stole Ash's badges probably was even more based off of that catfish)

    This episode was pretty good. Glad to see Ash's Pidove evolve into Tranquil.

    I agree, he seemed very Paul-ish here.

    Fine episode. Pidove evolved into Tranquill, nice. And yeah, Trip was like Paul, though he did help out Ash for one bit. Now we are supposed to see the Team Plasma and Team Rocket episodes, but no, we have to wait for those. Next week, we're having the Gym battle against Burgh.

    I'm beginning to think that we'll never see those episodes.

    Focusing on this episode, I thought it was fantastic. There were brilliant visuals of Castelia, features of lots of interesting Pokemon, an actual exciting storyline, and just general brilliance IMO. To see the Venepide crawling all over the city was really awesome, and it helps that Venepide is a brilliant design in the first place.

    Perhaps my only minor complaint is that Ash's Pidove evolved too abruptly- however this is undoubtedly my favourite Unova episode to date. It's just a shame we won't see the ensuing story arc for a long time now- and that's presuming that we will see it.

    As far as those two episodes go in Japan, I'm sure they'll eventually be seen on either DVD or Blu-Ray release if not on TV. The reason being is, unlike other lost episodes, those two have a plot that is central to the entire Unova Region arc.

    It may take till years end or later next year, but they'll be seen eventually (even if under illegal means).

    So I forgot why the TR VS TP episodes revived nightmares to Japan for the earthquake. What was the reason those particular episodes frightened them again?

    We should talk about an important issue too, Tranquill's horrifying new voice. I've never heard something so horrible in my life.

    A nice episode I thought. An excellent story which really would have been a great lead into the episodes which actually caused the venipede to flee to the city (they said migrate in the episode). Even though I thought Pidove's evolution was unexpected one thing to note is that they have gone back to the original evolution but with the new blue aura. If you were to compare this to sandile's evolution, his back suddenly grew and the rest of the body followed unlike pidove's evolution in my opinion.

    To me the edit of the episode was dealt with perfectly and all they had to do was stop the gang going with juniper (which happened in the original, as someone pointed out). All we know is that TR have found the meteonite and giovanni has made his way to the unova region and due to the TR findings professor juniper is going to investigate alone and we will find out what happens with this story later on in the series. This makes perfect sense now and we can continue how the dub is airing the series because everything makes perfect sense.

    Anyway, great episode

    Pretty decent episode. I liked that the group reached Castelia City and Trip appearing was good. Him with a Lampent is something I like because I do see him with a Chandelure and I liked that his Tranquill appeared too. My favorite part was when Ash's Pidove evolved into Tranquill. It did seem a bit random, but that is sure to make her stronger now, so I like it.

    It wasn't that bad. Other Pokemon voice's have been a lot worse.

    And Ritchie's voice, however, was really bad.

    It's not new, it's just 'feminine'.

    Burgh's voice is worse.

    I love Lampent's voice. It sounded good for it.

    The Venipede's voices where fine, it's nice how the big and small Venipede had different pitches in their voices compared to the others, makes them stand out more(Not like they need to stand out more).

    I enjoyed the episode for the most part.

    God yet another episode with Ash acting like a complete jerk shoving his views onto to other people. People complain that trip was annoying at least him and the other trainers were actually defending themselves against the Venipede who more than likely attacked first.

    Wow i'm amazed at how foreshadowing this episode is in conjunction with the Tohoku disaster, with the Venipede fleeing, & the massive energy build up. Also thought PUSA handled the continuity with this and the next episode by editing out the small part of Ash & the gang wanting to go to the Desert Resort. Certainly alot better done than some of the stuff 4kids did in the past.

    I thought Trip acted like a jerk in that episode.
    He can't just let Ash and Co do the job. He made it even worse if you ask me.
    How Ash got poisoned and how it was easily treated was ridiculous. Might as well not keep that part in.

    The good thing was watching the battles and how they moved those pesky Venipede to Central Plaza.
    I loved how Ash's Pidove evolved into Tranquil.

    So Team Rocket Vs Team Plasma episodes aren't going to be aired but are they still Dubbing it?

    Except as Burgh said, attacking them would've caused unnecessary damage to both sides. And notice how the Venipede retaliated to the trainers when the trainers attacked them. That's provocation.

    It makes no sense to defend yourself at whatever the cost, when there was a more peaceful solution.

    You act as if they had no choice, despite had you watched the episode (fully) they did have another choice.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    I really enjoyed A Venipede Stampede! It was very fast-paced, and the background music was beautiful. It was quite an epic story, with the Venipede ruining the whole city. It was good to see Trip here, as he acted as the other side of the what-to-do-with-the-Venipede argument. If it had been a CotD, the story would have been a lot weaker. Ash's Pidove evolving was great, but I would have liked to have seen Pidove struggling to blow away the Venipede, and then evolving and gaining strength. It was a bit of a random evolution. TPCi handled the editing at the end very well, I thought. There wasn't much they could do, really, but with the material at hand, they did a good job. I've been impressed lately.
