Pawniard's voice hurt my ears.
Pawniard's voice hurt my ears.
So technically this should have been an improved dub. Well to me it is at least.
First thing that I need to say, I love what they did at the end with the narrator bringing up checkmate, it references Pawniard(Note the "Pawn" in it's name). I loved that.
I enjoyed this episode as much as the Japanese version.
Gurdurr's and Pawniard's dub voices were great in my eyes(Or ears). The pronunciation of the names didn't come off as much of a shock either(Pawniard's was a little different then I thought).
Overall I enjoyed this episode.

I still find Iris' verbal fights with Georgia to be more tilted toward Georgia in regard to whom I'm supposed to root for.
Iris is just arrogant and condescending, while Georgia at least knows she's not that pleasant.
Iris: *bragging style*You still think you can beat me? Such a child.
Georgia: Yeah, I'm a child alright. Just like you.
Newsflash, girl: Georgia annihilated you twice, and technically won your third fight as well(according to typical battle rules, Beartic stayed up while Excadrill went down first). Get with the arrogance once you've actually proven yourself superior, or even on par.
Georgia's only real ***** sequence was her eating the group's food(which was bloody hilarious). The rest has been deserved arrogance.

Georgia really stands out as a battler in this episode, I really think she'd be a good rival for Ash.

You're right. Georgia seems like more of a rival for Ash than for Iris. And Bianca just seems like she doesn't even care what goes on around her.
My ideal battle ever!
Golly, I haven't watched much of the Black and White series, in fact no more than 10 but this episode was incredible! I would have to say it's one of the best Pokémon episodes I've ever seen, it just had everything.
-omg Cilan *fanboygasm* Cilan is just the coolest character in Pokémon. He is the best. Who can deny his calm attitude and food references. He adds a certain spice to the show.
-Good battles. The battles in Pokémon really leave much to be desired but what was in this episode was some of the best.
-Character Development. Maybe it's because I haven't seen any of the rivals in an episode before but it was really great seeing how they interacted with the main cast. They all have little quirks that set them aside from the rest.
-Genuine laughs! From Stephan's name being mispronounced, Georgia's bickering with Iris, Burgundy's unjustified hatred towards Cilan, Bianca's craziness and Zorua's cheeky behaviour I surprisingly found myself chuckling a little.
-Pokémon acting like Pokémon. I always like it when Pokémon are shown to be behaving like regular animals. For example seeing Dwebble repair its shell with its saliva and Zorua always running off to cause mischief.
This episode was just incredible, whoever the writer is get him on again. If only all episodes were like this.
I kinda like Georgia although shes good in small doses. I wouldnt want her to be a main rival like Trip and Bianca are although shes good for popping up at times
Loved how Burgandy got so mad at Clian winning although Trip leaving early slightly annoyed me. He could have stopped for a while.
It was kind of rude for Ash and Iris to be rooting for Bianca....they shouldn't have cared who won that battle. They're all friends, right?
I really enjoyed both battles. I laughed at Pawniard's action after its gender being revealed!
So, does anyone else really like Trip? I get the feeling we're supposed to go 'boo, what a jerk', but I find him to be not only interesting as a character, but talented as a trainer and actually refreshing in how little he tolerates Ash. (If anyone fell on the Pokemon I was trying to catch, ruining my chances, I'd be pretty hacked off too).
Re: the Pawniard battle, gah I dislike when the anime pulls stupid stunts like that to ensure the 'hero' wins the battle. There was no way under normal circumstances that Pawniard would've lost, and the writers knew it, so what do they do? Have it get its blades stuck in the ground. Yuh-huh, that's a fair way to win.
On the plus side, I sort of want to raise a Pawniard now. They're kinda cute :3

The best part of this episode was Burgundy and her dying to see Cilan lose. LOL Plus, I loved the ongoing storyline with Bianca and Zorua. I liked Iris's comment about Ash and Stefan making a contest out of eating too.
