I really liked this episode. It was a very serious and well played episode. Elgyem was cool to see in the anime, and how it interacted with the professor.
This episode felt very Layton-ish to me... The way they were talking and how Cilian and the Prof. explained everything...

Wasn't impressed by this episode, the whole UFO Area 28 thing just felt forced & Elgyem wasn't really showed off well.

I thought Elgyem sounded cute but I don't think it's voice suits it. I was expecting something more odd and more "Alien"-like. I don't think it sounded bad though, cute is better then nothing. I like how Elgyem is pronounced.
Icarus' dub voice sounded nice and fitting to me. I also like his dub name.
Overall I enjoyed the episode just as much as the Japanese version.

The lights on Elgyem's body are a bit similar to the lights on the 3 Regis' body
I ddnt really pay much attention to this episode but i suppose you need filler episodes sometime. I did like the focus on Clian though
I have to admit this episode triggered my love towards the little guy.
I have a collection of Elgyem in Black and I nickname them all.
And I loved Vic Mignogna doing the voice of Professor Icarus.
Not the best episode, but at least I liked it a little better than the later beheeyem episode, which Meowth made much better. And no stereotypically-drawn characters in this episode. -_-

does someone know the name of the song that plays in the beginning while Ash and Company where sleeping?
I liked the beginning of this episode, with Ash and his friends seeing the 'UFO'. And then the whole science fiction vibe that picked up after the gang saw the UFO was really awesome, It's interesting how the 'Area 28' story was explained in this episode, Area 28 is much like Area 51. Team Rocket really by trying to capture Elgyem, but Ash and the other manage to stop Team Rocket, causing them to retreat by using thier jetpacks. I thought The battle between them was pretty good.
It was cool to see Ash, Cilan and Iris riding an 'UFO' in this episode. Professor Icarus did a good job buliding the UFO, but sadly it got destroyed by Team Rocket.
Cilan was a little over-the-top in this episode with his whole "Science Connoisseur" thing, Iris's reaction to Cilan was kinda funny.
There's absolutely no way Cilan can an expert on anything else. Simply no way at all!
My top favorites
Claimed by me!
I was mad that Ash didn't catch Elgyem here since it would've been his 1st Psychic-type mon. I liked the desert setting at least...
The plot here reminded me of Roswell since Elgyem was an alien and the setting was a desert. Not bad for a BW filler. 6.5/10
I love science fiction type stuff, so I liked when Ash saw the UFO and how Cilan was trying to explain it. Elgyem was neat and I liked the UFO invention that Icarus created, plus Team Rocket's gadgets were good.
I definitely felt that this episode was a spoof of Area 51 and pretty much old alien movies in general, and Ligray was incredibly cute. What I liked the most was when Imori-hakase drove his UFO contraption when the Rocket-dan appeared with their own airship. I would've liked if Satoshi had gotten Ligray.
I loved the beginning of this episode with Ash and friends sleeping peacefully. That was soothing. And then the whole science fiction vibe that picked up after Ash and co. saw the UFO was really awesome. I loved the whole sparsely populated area thing and the "Area 28" story.~
Cilan's skepticism was much better and less annoyingly handled than in earlier episodes, but I thought it was annoying that they kept calling the doctor's flying machine a "UFO" even after they learned what it was.
