    Good episode. The second part was indeed a bit boring, but the final match was really something. The band were getting on my nerves a bit, too. Great to see Ash getting all eight badges now.

    Off-topic, but gen V protags are right handed. I was dissapointed since irl im left handed, always thought it was cool to see lefties

    so since it had the "Next time: New Beginning!" on the end, do you all think the next episode will be a new season? I feel like we are getting a break between episodes because we haven't gotten any new episode titles in a long time for anything after this episode.

    The main page thread of the PAD gives the titles to the first six episodes. Dub titles I meant.

    TPCi is ignoring Season 2 almost completely. I don't see in Pokemon.com any promo with the new episodes. And the guides refer to the two upcoming episodes to be Best Wishes Rival Destinies. I think that the dub is going to ignore the difference because is the continuation of the same storyline. The "Next time a new beginning" is kept because TPCi rarely made edits anymore. Basically, for international viewers Season2 is just new episodes of Pokemon with the only difference that older character and older pokemon appear.
    I think that Pokemon is beautiful and has its charm

    Note: I decided to not post post that had cause hate to me anymore. If you see one, please PM me and I will delete the moment I'm aware and I'm online.

    I need to take a break in the anime forum because these forum bored me.

    Or because this is our season 2 dub wise, BW season 2 episodes are a extension to Rival Destines. Face it, your facts are as baseless as the Sonic fanbase.

    First lets clear up a comment which I left in my post to the last episode. I think Roxie wasn't arrogant and afterall it was just confidence. She was also noble which was shown in her kind gesture of using a pecha berry on Pignite.

    Now onto this episode. I thought it was awesome! It was action packed throughout and even though the other battles were relatively dull compared to the final battle with Pikachu they only thickened the already rich Gravy (which confused me when Cilan said it lol). Speaking of Pikachu, I really enjoyed his battle (but I always do) and it constantly strengthens the bond between him and Ash but the episode also showed how important Ash's Friends are, which was a heartwarming moment for me.

    Overall, the episode had me excited, anxious and heartwarmed. That makes it a great episode for me . On to the next one, a new beginning!
    Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

    This episode was pretty good. The battle went over quite well, though I was a tad surprised that Roxy gave Ash a pecha berry during the battle (not really a complaint though).

    After watching the dub, I realized something...All the moves that roxie's pokemon had were poison or normal with one steel, one rock and one non-damaging fire...If someone came in with a bulky, specially-oriented steel type, like magnezone, probopass or empoleon, she'll be over in no time...

    that's pretty much what i did the first time i whooped her in the games, took a magnemite in there and she couldn't do anything.

    I really do believe this battle was done alright, yes i know people will and still do whine because "OMG Palpitoad comes back to die and sevre as useless cannon fodder!?" but the way the fight was executed was unique, and we got to see how crippling poison can really be, which is rather shameful that we didn't get to see such things back in the first season with Koga, but I digress on that.

    Now as for Ash's little "confidence break" moment, let's think about this. He took six of what he believed to be his strongest current pokemon against Roxie and was giving it his all, I don't think anyone wouldn't feel the same if they had to watch what they considered thier best six get taken down by three, I mean look at how depressed and down the other trainers who challenged roxie were in the previous episode from having lost to her, it's easy to get overwhelmed at times and lose confidence as a result, Ash simply felt the same pressure, and thanks to Iris and Cilan was able to recover and continue on to win.

    People really gotta stop hating battles just because one or two of their fav pokemon got ko'ed, it happens to all of Ash's guys at somepoint.

    Well she may have three other pokemon. Not just those three. Btw Will-o-wisp is treated more like a special move than non-damaging in the anime.

    I doubt he would have lost as many if he bothered training any of the 5 reserves more often other than pignite.

    Eigth badges generally come down to the wire (the earth badge from gen 1 not withstanding since Jessie broke the rules allowing Ash to do so and send Pikachu in to nuke all opposition) so it was kind of expected that would happen.

    there are very few gyms where more than one pokemon survives at the end as well.

    Also kinda ironic that when you think about it, every odd numbered gen the last gym had weird rule sets, where as the even numbered ones became three vs three power fests.

    I agree. They can't make the eighth and final gym battle look like crap so it has to be awesome. Way to go. But like I've said before, I love all of the BW gymbattles. Better than Kanto's and IS's combined.

    My ideal battle ever!

    Finally got to finish watching this episode. Not bad at all, for the most part, but I didn't feel any tension at all. Despite how they show Roxie fighting pretty strong.

    I also found it adorable of Pikachu to jump/dodge Garbodor's DoubleSlap repeatedly. It's almost like Pikachu was jump roping!

    Also, the crowd and Iris were getting a bit on my nerves, too; too much of them to go around.

    Kind of bugs me that we may not see a huge change in the next episodes to come; seeing how significantly the show is making a turning point. Especially with the text "Next Time... A New Beginning!" There ought to be something literally new coming our way, when you're using traditional text like that. I mean, Japan is actually using a season number to symbolize the "2" in Black/White 2 episodes. And for once, TPCi isn't doing the same? Figures. I guess since there's only been about 35-36 episodes just for Rival Destinies? Is there only going to be two seasons? With the League coming up pretty soon, in due time at least.

    Besides, I was really looking forward to seeing a dub opening version of "Be an Arrow". It literally makes a significant new look to the Black/White 2 episodes. Unless they're going to make a new opening but use the same song. Then that would be alright with me.

    That's what i'm guessing. Using the same song but with BWS2 episodes.

    I really enjoyed that episode. The crowd were very annoying though, Iris included. I liked Pikachu winning with static. It's the exact kind of "hax" the games have, and I feel he deserved that win. I also like Garbodor more after this episode. I liked Koffing more after the previous episode too lol, so much that I decided to breed my Weezing to get a competitive one for PWT. Roxie is good at advertising Pokémon to me, she's one of my favourite gym leaders. Can't wait until the dub equivalent of Best Wishes! Series 2 begins!

    It kind of annoys me too the way TCPi arranges the seasons. But each season seems to be roughly 50 episodes in length, and Rival Destinies will reach near that number by the time Team Rocket pull off their latest scheme. Black & White ended with the Team Rocket story in Nimbasa, so maybe Team Rocket will be the end of Rival Destinies too? Then season 16 will be a League-themed one with BWS2 stuff in the intro. Maybe. Though, I hope they use BWS2 footage in the opening for the rest of season 15 like you said.

    Ash must have put out all the stop to defeat Roxie for the last Unova Gym Battle, the Toxic Badge. It seems that Roxie taking a liking to Ash. If that's true, then Anabel and maybe Dawn might have a competition for Ash's affection. Anyway the battle getting intense.

    I finally got to watch this episode. Roxie put up a tough fight for Ash, but he manages to beat her. She's also a good sport, giving Ash's Pokemon Pecha Berries.
