    No change in animation at all. Just a change of lyrics. I don't have 'em translated, but I figure someone here can do it since I can't get a good translation out of it.

    GLORY DAY どしゃぶりの雨も
    GLORY DAY 強い北風も
    GLORY DAY ぜんぶ受け止めて
    突き進め‼ GLORY DAY

    本気で ぶつかった時しか
    見えないけれど
    きっと出会うはずさ
    こぼれるよな笑顔

    「やったね!!」って 駆け寄る仲間は
    きらめくダイヤ
    絶対 曇らない
    信じたなら みんなを

    GLORY DAY まぶしい太陽も
    GLORY DAY 流れる雲も
    GLORY DAY ぜんぶ引き連れて
    たどり着くさ‼ GLORY DAY
    That's basically from the newer version.

    So you say there wasn't any change in the opening or ending animation? You absolutely sure they didn't add Yukiwarashi in with all of Satoshi's other Pokemon during that battle against the Reji trio? And these lyric changes in Glory Day you speak of, what was changed exactly?
    It's also the name that Jessie (Or rather, Musashi.) has used to refer to her Dokukeiru, right? (Not all the time though, like in battle.) Or was that something else? ^_^o

    Actually, she mostly refers to her Dokukeiru as Dokukeiru-chan.

    Ah. I'll stick with Doku-chan, though. It's shorter, and cute. ^_^o (Just hope I don't get screamed by people saying 'WTF is dokuchan? does jesse catch some new pokymans?!') Heh.

    This episode was a pleasant surprise for me. The storyline was pretty damn good, and it was a tear-jerker (for me anyways). There were a couple touching and funny parts to the episode:

    -Was it just me or was TR extremely vicious in this episode? I was watching Jessie and James pour on the power with thier Pokemon and thinking, "Goddamn...can you guys have some remorse this time?" LoL I wish joke-of-the-day TR would battle like this more often - I loved it.

    -Jessie and Meowth dressing up as Gardevoir and Kirlia was hilarious. Even better was when Ash did use his PokeDex to ID faux-Kirlia as Meowth.

    -When May told Max to get Ralts to the Pokemon Center on his own, that showed a lot of growth and trust in thier relationship. These two have come a long way from the always-bickering big sister-little brother we were presented with when AG began.

    -Not to mention that Max's character has progressed amazingly. It seemed like a half a day's journey to get to that Pokemon Center. That's pretty damn far to go for an 8-year-old, but I forget that he does have the PokeNavi and this IS of course Pokemon.

    -Snorout actually came in pretty handy for Max. Freezing those Berries so Max could use them as an icepack to make Ralts more comfortable was a nice idea.

    -When Ralts was in the ER, I was reminded of the Raikou Special, when Kenta stayed to watch Raikou overnight.

    -The ending was real touching. Not since "Charizard's blazing ambition" have I teared up during an episode. Max should've kept Ralts, but anyone with common sense would see why the writers chose not to. Still though, one would wonder how things would've been if...


    All in all, this particular side-story gets a 10 out of 10 in my book. Seeing the real Kirlia and Gardevoir (Ralts' relatives) in this episode just put the icing on the cake for me.

    This episode seemed really touching. Poor Max seemed to have it really hard on this episode... There was some character development, too. So Max promised he'd come back for Ralts? ... I think he'll keep that promise.

    Oh, and TR actually impresssed me on this episode! They were battling much better then usual; I wouldn't have been surprised if they had actually won. It took Pikachu, Combusken, AND Ludicolo to beat them this time while usually it only takes Pikachu.

    And that one scene with May & Max... That was too sweet! ='} This seems to have been one touching episode, overall.

    This episode looks incredible, great animation, possibly the most serious battle with Jessie and James ever (in terms of how well they did), and probably the best story centered around Max since the sixth movie. The only downside was how little we saw of Gardevoir, hopefully we'll see it in action more later. It did contribute to the very "mystical" feel their appearences in the episode were supposed to evoke.

    Now a few questions:

    What huge attack did Ralts (I think it was Ralts) use that blew up all that dirt at the end of the episode to blast Jesise and Meowth off? I assume it was Psychic, but after the way they showed Rock Blast I'm not so sure.

    Who were the "assassins" who tried to attack chibi Giovanni/Sakaki in Meowth's fantasy sequence? That is, did Meowth describe them as ganglords, assassins, common thugs etc.

    So Ralts communicated telepathically with Max at certain points? In words or just images? One does wonder how normal that is. It's been said and shown through the series that a trainer with a psychic Pokemon tends to develop a mental link/psychic connection with it that helps them communicate, and psychics do seem to be the best at transforming their thoughts into words humans understand, but it's never made clear if most trainers actually hear a human voice from their Psychic Pokemon. This reminds me a bit of the strange psychic empathy Ash seemed to share with Larvitar, back when it communicated with him from within the egg.

    What was Jessie so angry about after she and the others were covered in snow? What attack was that? Just a really big Icy Wind?

    What attack did Dustox use to block the Fire Spin from Combusken? From the screenshots I couldn't tell if it was Gust or Psybeam, it almost looked like it could be Silver Wind from the angle fo the shot.

    Was there any point to the strange-looking leaves blowing about at the end or were they just there for atmosphere? Usually those scenes require cherry blossoms or something pretty like that, not fern-like leaves. ^_^

    Comment not question here. I must say using the pokedex to confirm the disguise was a stroke of genius, and perhaps the only time we've seen Meowth in the pokedex (there may have been another, I can't recall). Thus one wonders why Jessie and Meowth bothered to try the same costumes later on, though the other's reactions were hilarious. It would have been even funnier if he used it on Jessie!

    It was clearly meant to be kept, however, it is likely we will never see it happen because I doubt the series will age Max to May's age (though it'd be great fi they did and aged everyone else that much). On the other hand by not showing when it would happen, they guarantee that the promise will be kept, especially if we never see Max again after Hoenn. Hope that made some sense. More detailed examination below:

    Ash's "promises" were more like simple desires of what could happen unless something changes. Ash has been so far from Primeape for so long it really makes sense for him to have it stay with the trainer he left it to, although it should be noted there was no set timeframe for him getting it back. Anthony said "a while," which was quite indefinate, and Ash has never been close ot that place since then anyway. As for Pidgeot Ash made that "promise" assuming that he'd be in the orange Islands a very short time (he didn't even know about the league there), assuming that Pidgeot would not be needed by the flock anymore, and assuming that Ash would be able to find it in the time he had back in Pallet. Ash clearly did not forget Pidgeot in any way, don't you think there was a point to the whoel flashback sequence at Falkner's gym? Even then Ash still intends to keep his promise, provided he gets a chance to do so, as he says quite plainly "someday I'll go back and see my old my friend."

    This Max and Ralts promise seems to me to be of a very different nature. It doesn't look to be a wishful thing or a simple hope. The fact that they both swore to reunite in the future adds to it further. To me the seriousness and emotion of the scene was showing more than just a simple promise, something more along the lines of a sworn oath. Plus, since Ralts is a Psychic type, can sense the presence of others, levitate to fly, Teleport considerable distances etc. it would certainly be easier for it to find Max in the future than for some other Pokemon.

    Truly a great episode to wait for, I hope for a few more of this caliber before Hoenn ends. Not that I'm saying a lot of Hoenn episodes are bad, extremely few are, most are above average, but still episodes as good as this one are rare.

    Yep; first time Meowth's been dexed. Some of TR's Pokémon haven't been looked up, either: Ekans/Arbok, Koffing/Weezing, and Lickitung...wait, I think Lickitung was dexed on its debut.^_^;

    I just saw the pics for this episode, and I have to admit, I'm impressed. The animation looks more like the movies now, and the trees finally look like something more than big puffy green clouds with trunks. LOL It's also nice to finally see Meowth's pokedex entry. About time! He and Jessie were disguised pretty well.

    Also, I'm glad to see Ash finally got his very own popout pokemon with Snorunt. We've had Misty (Psyduck), Jessie (Wobbuffet), May (Skitty), and James (Chimecho during the mottos), and now Ash has finally joined the ranks. Yay!!

    Nice to see they nicked the ending scene from the film Ghost! Still a good idea nonetheless, a touching episode in prospect I guess.

    Yes, it was Psychic.

    Who were the "assassins" who tried to attack chibi Giovanni/Sakaki in Meowth's fantasy sequence? That is, did Meowth describe them as ganglords, assassins, common thugs etc.
    "Bad guys".

    So Ralts communicated telepathically with Max at certain points? In words or just images? One does wonder how normal that is. It's been said and shown through the series that a trainer with a psychic Pokemon tends to develop a mental link/psychic connection with it that helps them communicate, and psychics do seem to be the best at transforming their thoughts into words humans understand, but it's never made clear if most trainers actually hear a human voice from their Psychic Pokemon. This reminds me a bit of the strange psychic empathy Ash seemed to share with Larvitar, back when it communicated with him from within the egg.
    At the beginning, Masato heard it saying "help me" when no one else heard anything at all. At the end, we (the audience) also hear it when it says "It's a promise. You will come back for me, right?"

    What was Jessie so angry about after she and the others were covered in snow? What attack was that? Just a really big Icy Wind?
    It was Icy Wind, and she was mad because Ralts was no longer there.

    What attack did Dustox use to block the Fire Spin from Combusken? From the screenshots I couldn't tell if it was Gust or Psybeam, it almost looked like it could be Silver Wind from the angle fo the shot.
    Almost certainly Gust.

    Was there any point to the strange-looking leaves blowing about at the end or were they just there for atmosphere? Usually those scenes require cherry blossoms or something pretty like that, not fern-like leaves. ^_^
    I'm quite certain that there was symbolism to the ginkgo leaves, but I'm not sure exatly what.

    Question: Does anybody that has seen the episode (Very few. :P) remember the gist of Meowth's Pokedex entry? Anything remotely interesting about it? (That, and what attacks did Team Rocket's Pokemon perform?)

    You know, it's good to hear that Team Rocket put up a decent battle in this episode. I have very fond memories of the... race... episode... thing. You know, with that Dodrio Rider, Dario, where Team Rocket were pretty much pounding Ash and Misty into the ground. Well, maybe not, but they were winning. And it's doubly troubly (WTF? XD) nice to hear that Doku-chan had a bit to play in their Battle Goodness. ^_^

    That gag is getting a little old and I really hope that it doesn't last long in Ash's case...

    Yet another popper, great . It's not good because what if that happens when Ash is in a battle and he seriously doesn't need him around. I still don't know people love that gag.

    Hahahahaha the Pokedex knows all. Besides, he made a real short Kirlia.

    Poor Max, no poke and he and Ralts were really starting to bond too. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Meowth. At night, it gathers coins and similar items. It sleeps all day. (paraphrased)
    As you can probably imagine, Meowth was not pleased by the bit about sleeping all day. Jessie wanted to know why, if he had the ability to find and gather coins, he didn't use it for her benefit.

    I love the popout gag! It's good for all sorts of different reasons. For Psyduck, it meant that he really loves Misty and wants to do the best he can for her, even though he's not very useful most of the time. For Wobbuffet, it shows that he loves being part of the team, a sort of cheerleader for Team Rocket, even though he's rarely used in battle (I know in the last new episode, it was the first time he used counter in three years!). For Skitty and Chimecho, it makes them so cute. I love the so-called "uncooperative" pokemon like them.

    It'll be interesting to see what Snorunt contributes. The fact that Charizard was also "uncooperative", never listening to Ash but never popping out of his pokeball, compared to the other pokemon, says a lot about him for me.

    Don't forget Lotad. He was a bit... 'off' when Brock first caught him. :P

    Anyway. Looking at the pics, and reading this thread, I think this is gonna be a very good episode, I can't wait until it comes over to U.S. shores....in about a year. (The current U.S. season ends after Referee School Island, right? How long is it from here to there, and from there to this episode?)

    And a small request. Could someone possibly tell me what the exchanges between Gardevoir, Kirlia and Max were about?

    Cacnea used Needle Arm? Eh? Was that the big explosion thingy-attack we saw in the preview?

    I wish I could see that ep soon, but we're only at, like, A Meditite Fight here. So looooong....

    Yes since Pokemon Advanced Challenge last episode is The Referee School Island. From whenever the U.S. see's Taking the Lombre home we will have 47 episodes from that episode to Rescue Ralts! Hurry Max!. BTW i live in the U.S. and did simple math to find out how many episodes we have left.
    I have 3 Swellow's I believe, Swell, Tail and another one forgot that other name lol

    It's an amazing episode. They should keep it up on the Pokedex of Meowth so Ash and his friends can wise up to Team Rockets tricks after 385 episodes... discluding the first episode and the ones that didn't had them use disguses...

    Best Episode Ever, with looks to pictures. Then again, I said the same about I Feel Skitty, so meh :3. A good debut for Ralts, and it's about time Max got a go. Yay for Max! 10/10 for this episode.

    All I can say is that I'm VERY relieved that this episode gave Masato a chance to show off his character and connect with a pokémon in a more meaningful way compared to the others he's befriended. In all honesty, I was quite worried that the writers would make a less than satisfying job out of this episode, reducing it to a bland, mediocre, boredom-fest. But they didn't, and I'm quite impressed with thier efforts.
    I'm very happy with how this episode turned out, and I hope that future Masato-based episodes follow the trend of actually bringing out his character as well as making the story-line interesting. They can accomplish that with this episode, so they can do it in future episodes. Hopefully we'll have a little more focus on Masato in the future. This episode certainly restored my confidence in the writers when it comes down to bringing life to the characters~

    And of course, a lot of other events, namely Team Rocket pulling off an impressive battle, their disguises (you HAVE to love Jessie in that outfit) and the fact that this episode featured one of the better pokémon evo-lines made this all the more entertaining.
    I also like the idea of Ralts having an actual 'speaking' voice of sorts when communicating telepathicly. Unfortunatly, I guess that means its voice will be dubbed over, ne? ^^; I hope 4Kids manage to do as good a job with Ralts as they did with Larvitar~

    Did Ralts evolve in the end?
    Pokemon: The Theme of Secrets


    At long last, I am returning with my Fan-Fic. Just need to find a better host. Blogger has done its course but I need just a little more recognition.

    I freaking HATE "Mega" Evolution.
