    Like everyone else has said already, the dub made a good choice for N's voice. It fitted so well, I wasn't expecting the dialogue between him and TRio to be so accurate to the Japanese version. The language used felt so harsh, which was good to hear in a Pokemon episode since its pretty rare. TRio weren't as bad this week but you can tell the dub had a good idea that in Da! we were going back to full on goofy TRio, so why not start building it up early for the dub. The opening surprised me too, I really thought we were stuck with that 1st opening till the end of the season. Good to see a change around. Gets me excited to hear what Plasma's voices will be like

    N's voice sounded exactly as I expected, in fact, I almost actually thought it actually was Jerry Jewell for a lot of the episode.

    The opening was a complete surprise. Kind of odd that no clips of Ghetsis or Colress got in, but the Goddesses, the recycled Dragonite scene from BW097, and the infamous helicopter scene did.

    And as expected, the dub made TR even more annoying than they were in the raw. Yawn.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed the dub. N's voice was weird at first but after a bit I got used to it and it feels Natural. get it?

    Good episode. N has a nice voice, indeed. And I'm sure N will find answers eventually. And yay for Snivy appearing again, even if only for a short time during the presence of Team Rocket. Too bad Team Rocket didn't even say "We're blasting off again!"

    Did anyone else find out that N's voice actor is the same guy who voiced Montgomery from the Clubsplosion?

    First of all, like everyone else, I really liked the opening this episode. It was just so right.

    The narrator described N so well so I am going to use it again, N is such a fascinating character. We first see him in an abandoned laboratory which I assume was the P2 lab due to the appearance of the Genesect data. Skipping forward, N finally meets Ash and friends. To me, he sounds slightly estranged and has a couple of screws loose (if you get what I mean) but that makes complete sense to me because N isn't a normal character so this fits him perfectly. He takes an interest in mythology, but is this to fulfil his own truths and ideals to find out why the world exists the way it is? Also, we immediately discover N's burning hatred towards Pokémon being forced to battle and it will be interesting how N reacts the more he is exposed to Pokémon battle as he encounters Ash and his friends.

    Really, I'm just really excited to see how this develops. On to the next one!

    Oh man, this episode is pretty good, I actually really like it! Awesome to see N in the very first scene with a Genesect cameo, in P2 Laboratory! Yay, also an updated opening with scenes for the new arc too!!

    Haha anyway, I thought the setting is nice, I really the idea of Ash, Iris and Cilan meeting N on a ship for some reason. XD Ash was really playful with Pikachu throughout the episode, so I guess N noticed it. It looks like Ash and Pikachu really got along with N upon meeting him on the top deck, too.

    I really like N's voice, especially when he's talking about Pokemon battles. I guess, Team Rocket were pretty cool here too, after N left but while Ash and Iris were in a battle, they show up, using Axew to get to Pikachu! Anyway, N was really cool here, protecting the Pokemon by using himself and then letting Ash handle the rest, with Team Rocket blasting off again? Also, N calling out to Pokemon is a cool ability that helped Pikachu thanks to Alomomola!

    So anyway, N leaves at Castelia City while Ash and co stay on board to Aspertia City. Well, really good episode, I like it a lot and now I'm looking forward to the next episode! I'll give it a 10/10 it wasn't perfect but I didn't see any faults.

    It is not really a mistake at all if you take time to think about it. Kanto,Johto,Hoenn and Sinnoh are all a single nation. Yes they are regions that are separate but they are all in a single nation. While it has been said more then once Unova is another region in ANOTHER nation. So James saying Unite the people within the nation makes sense since it is not "his nation like the other 4 regions were in so he can't say "our"

    I actually enjoyed this episode. N makes the anime mildly interesting and the battle with Team Rocket wasn't boring, as they were before.

    But that's not the issue. He says "To unite the people within our nation".

    Not really, given that these references were in the original script, and the dub just translated these lines straight. Doesn't mean the dubbers even have to know the wording is supposed to be a reference in the first place?

    Wait, they didn't refer to it as such in the dub?

    They did. Cilan identified it when using a map. Ash even annoyingly repeated it, as ever, in a bewildered tone.

    That is not a reference to the Japanese name.

    They say "best wishes" in the Japanese version all the time. This is just them keeping the line.

    Yeah but at least it was fitting, I'm a little surprised by that actually. XD It sounds just like N's voice from that BW2 promo trailer at times or is it?

    Same here. I'll even say it was an excellent voice for N. It's a different VA. Tom Wayland played N in the trailer, while Nicholas DiMichele plays N in the anime (some things are similar, but some are really different in a good way).

    TRio sucked in this episode in the dub, though. They're returning to their DP selves. XD.

    In terms of his voice, I liked it a lot.

    It showed a sense of wonder...I like that.

    Though he did sound a bit bored whenever he didn't have lines he was supposed to get fired up at.

    /alsdjalsdajksd. why am I being picky? The voice sounds so nice...QQ

    The episode was really good. I'm more focused on the opening in this episode, though. I really thought we were going to be stuck with the same one for Episode N and Da! I'm glad I was wrong! I'm so glad they changed the opening to clips of the Episode N opening! c:

    The dub perfected N's voice in my opinion, i think it suits him perfectly.
    On the topic of the TRio, can't they be funny without having to rhyme? If i wanted to hear rhymes in every episode i would go read a book of nursery rhymes or Dr Suess lol.

    This was a pretty great episode. N was definitely one of the coolest characters I've ever seen in the entire pokemon series.

    N's anime voice sounds much better than the BW2 trailer. It's closer to what I imagined for him.

    I am so glad they decided to change the intro! Keep up the good work, dubbers!

    N was already my favorite character in the franchise, but in one episode he already has a better presence than Ash&co have been in a while and is genuinely interesting.
