    Looks like a funny episode based on the photos. What's happening in the last scene? Team Rocket breaking into the ruin? What are the rocks?

    breathe it in, i'm gonna shine. it's my moment, i'm going to fly.

    What the hell kind of episode was this?! Anyway, interesting pictures, I wish one of the main characters had did a battle with one of the poke hero wannabes, but this seemed like a filler that was a waist of waiting all week.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Er- I mean, I really loved this episode, and I thought Charles was gonna a greasy biker if he were to appear in the animu.
    You really need to stop that, and this episode not filler, I was wrong about that.

    I didn't like the episode that much. I did enjoy Oshawott slipping and crashing into the mean and lean santa.

    Almost completely filler, but a funny and enjoyable one. Definitely up there as one of if not the best BW episodes of that type so far. I do wish Professor Tsuraraa had managed to escape, though, so he and Charles could appear again.

    There was a lever or sculpture of some kind on the shrine, and they smashed it. It was probably a seal on either Tornadus or Thundurus.

    It's a shame that Charles didn't teach Ash about triple battles. That could have been an episode in and of itself. I like the character in the games, but until I see this dubbed I won't really be able to judge his anime personality. The superhero thing is fun, but he's not as enjoyable as Gligarman.

    Again, it was part of a shrine on Milos Island that Team Rocket smashed as part of their mission.

    Wasn't Charles pretty fat/big in the games?
    Animu!Charles can break my heart anytime!<3

    I found this episode to be pretty hilarious and rofl the moment when Charles ran out of gas. :'D And Mijumaru! He lightens up the screen every time (only with his voice too!) Btw, Ash didn't get that Charles and the superhero guy were the same guy, right? Until he was told so. And those two minors of the bad guy were too funny!

    So I say, it was a good eppie!

    This episode was alright, very action-packed! Way better than the last hero episode. It was cool to see Agirudaa and Baniricchi for the 1st time. Sheer Cold was shown again, this time by Baniricchi, wow. Pokabu was absolutely adorable when he came right out of his Pokeball, he's got his own little pose of excitement! The 2 henchmen had pretty hilarious poses and noises they made... Mijumaru did his usual, resulting in the breaking of the control... Nice to see my favorite Unova pre-evolution Dokkora again in this episode. As usual, Ash was clueless about Charles, everybody's reactions to that were priceless. Charles was definitely not very good at being a hero til the end.

    He didn't have his own design, he used the generic Biker sprite.

    So, it's really hard to tell how he was supposed to look like.
    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.

    How about watching the anime instead of judging the episode based on pictures?

    It was a pretty meh episode in my opinion. Seeing Oshawott was good, as was seeing Accelgor, but the rest was just mediocre.

    I haven't really....seen the actual episode either....but, I'm pretty sure Swift hero Accelgor was a shout out to Kamen rider

    Motorcycle, spandex suit, And an obvious rider kick.

    Heck, even those two Vanillite mooks look like Shocker Troops

    and that makes me likes this episode

    Partly that, but he was even more a shout-out to Swift Hero Zubat. Both his name and suit are near-identical (and Zubat's "Zubat Attack" finishing move is somewhat similar to certain incarnations of the Rider Kick, too).

    Watched the episode, it was entertaining, I like Charles and Accelgor and even the goofy villans.

    Its a good episode to watch once atleast.

    That....makes more sense. Granted, the only thing I saw of Zubat (the hero) was in the 40th annyversary kamen rider movie, but that's pretty cool too, I like Tokusatsu in general

    Um...I don't mean to de-rail the thread, sorry, I just wanted to point out the shout out ^__^; carry on!

    Zubat is probably the most badass toku hero ever created. His series is heartily recommended.

    -The episode begins with...a semi truck with a NO VANILLITE design on it? But more importantly, the gang's reached Driftveil City!
    -Ash runs into the gym, which leads to him literally running into Clay! Of course, Clay isn't interested in a battle right now. Ash is disappointed, Iris is irked, and Cilan is rather understanding(which makes sense!). ...or it might just be that he's more interested in going to the Driftveil market.
    -Heartbreaker Charles is here! Along with his Accelgor...which has a much deeper voice than I'd have expected.
    -Apparently being buds with Charles gets you free stuff at the market. And Cilan is just a little too into the whole "oh my god, a MARKET!" thing.
    -And then a Ducklett with sunglasses runs by stealing stuff while corny guitar action music kicks in. The Ducklett's presumable owner shows up, and...really, guy? You're stealing baskets of fruit? But never fear, Charles Swift Hero A-Glider shows up! And holy ****, is that a variation on Looker's theme in the background?
    -The thief has the brilliant idea of driving away before A-Glider can jump to the ground. Luckily, Accelgor is fast enough to stop him anyway, so now A-Glider gets on his bike and...it blew a gasket. Oi. But before the thief can try getting away again, a Timburr stops the car in its tracks.
    -After the thief is arrested, Timburr's trainer(who's named Linda) mocks Charles for his pathetic A-glider act. It seems like he can never get it right. Naturally, Ash is enthralled with the superhero antics anyway; as far as I can tell, he's the only one too dumb to have realized that Charles is A-glider.
    -Meanwhile, the NO VANILLITE truck is doing something suspicious...namely, letting a couple of dudes in Vanillite ski masks meet up with a caped old guy.
    -Back with the twerps, Ash gets offered an A-glider pin/badge/thing from Charles, all for being an A-glider fan. And we hear another variation of Looker's theme. I suppose this episode's as good a place as any for that cheesy(yet awesome) thing. But...Ash doesn't really want the present.
    -Team Rocket is still doing foreshadow-y things on the genie islands.
    -Later that night, Ash is marching along and humming happily, while Dento is walking behind him with a perfect "...uh..." face & Iris is annoyed that Ash doesn't realize who A-glider is. And when she tells him directly...he still refuses to believe it. Oh, Ash.
    -Meanwhile, Linda is checking out the warehouse the Vanillite guys were in earlier...and of course, the bad guys are waiting for her. She tries to fight, but quickly ends up as a damsel in distress.
    -Fortunately, Charles snoops on her office computer and figures out where she is.
    -The villains reveal their plan using paper cutout graphics, and...apparently their plan is to make friends with Vanillite by luring them out with actual ice cream. ...okay then.
    -Our heroes arrive, and...Iris calls the villains kids! Ahahahah!
    -The head honcho's Vanillie control device ends up getting broken when Oshawott...slips on ice and runs into him. This episode. :3
    -The bad guys are getting away, but Linda begs Charles to go after them...as A-glider! Ash STILL doesn't get it until Iris spells it out for him AGAIN.
    -Ash manages to screw up and call A-glider "Charles" in front of the main bad guy, who responds by...turning into Crygonal Man! Iris freaks out(Ice types!) and hides behind Cilan. Then Crygonal man sends out his......Vanillish. Which gets a round of "...what." from everyone.
    -This fight is so ridiculous. I love it.
    -TR broke something in the Tornadus shrine. Hmm.


    A pretty hilarious episode if you take it for what it is - a giant parody of superhero cartoons. Yes, most of it is dumb, but that's the point. Superhero cartoons are full of evil plots that don't make any sense, people dumb enough that they never figure out the superhero's true identity(even though it should be blatently obvious on several occassions), overdramatic music, and ridiculous costumes.

    Seeing that "Swift Hero Zubat" thing just makes this make even more obvious.

    It was a pretty good Episode, tbh. ^^ Not Great, but Good. Accelgor was awesome, too (though, it lookes SOO Fat at times! )~<3
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    One of these Spoilers has a very Hot Chick hidden. One has Yaoi. And one will eat your Soul. Choose at your own risk~

    Live action superhero shows, actually. The main difference between them and their cartoon counterparts is that they're usually a lot dumber, and thus, a lot better.

    Wow, this was a fun episode!

    Highlights;

    - Iris hiding behind Dento due her fear from ice types (continuity ftw!)
    - Ash being clueless about Charles' real identity, lol.
    - Oshawott slipping over the ice and destroying the remote.
    - I really liked the climax of the episode - I also loved the animation of Sheer Cold.


    ....and now, her story begins.

    Yeah, this is essentially one big tribute to tokusatsu, isn't it? I love this as an idea for filler, it's great to watch and pick up on some of the references, I noticed a reference to Sentai posing, Kamen Rider Stronger's introduction speech, as well as a couple of other things Rider-related.
