    Mystery of the Treasure! Deserted Island Adventure!! airs July 4 and the last episode listed on Bulbapedia but I think there are more episodes than that. We don't have enough information.

    Yeah, and "Zegeru" isn't his name. If you stopped inventing your own translations in an attempt to be cute, people might take you more seriously.
    Zegeru is not his trademarked spelling (seger) but it is his transliterated name. Don't believe me? (taken from his homepage: ゼーゲ; ze-ge-ru) http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Professor_Seger basically... Zegeru; Seger; Zeger... whatever they are all his name.

    Just wanted to make that clear to everyone.

    If it's not his official name, it's not his name. Period. The name is what an official source says it is, not what you want it to be, which is why (for example) it's "Zorua" and not "Zoroa."

    Just because Dogasu thinks he can invent his own translations doesn't make him right, and you are wrong when you do the same thing. Written Japanese is a complex language and converting it to English is even more complex, and all you seem to be doing is picking katakana off a translation table like Wikipedia's.

    I asked a mod and they said it was okay as long as I specify who I am talking about. But nonetheless; I'll stick with Seger.

    Actually the official romanization is the correct way. For example, Zorua might be spelled "Zoroa" in Katakana but the Pokemon Company romanizes it as "Zorua." So it's more of a name change and that's what everyone uses. Not that I'm trying to come down on you, I don't mind what anyone using, I'm just saying. For example, iirc, Cabernet's direct name romanized is "Kaberune" but it's meant to be "Cabernet"(In reference to the type of wine.") or how "Airisu" is meant to be "Iris"(The type of flower which all Gym Leaders and Elites are named after.)

    I hope the main reason why Ash is going back to Kanto is because it would now a perfect time to end Team Rocket once and for all.
    I don't know why they didn't do it Kanta Battle frontier of AG (Maybe because TR were not the main Antagonist much like in BW) There must be a reason why Team Rocket were more of a threat than they were in AG & DP. It's got to be that the writers want to write off Team Rocket and planed that Gen V would be there last arc. I just hope a TR Finale is waiting in front of the new XY Saga in a form of the Team Galactic finale. What if Zekrom is serving the same role as Mesprit did in the first DP episode and appeared Fully 150 DP episodes later. Could Zekrom's role be to destroy Team Rocket, is that why it appeared and zapped the TRio in the first BW episode?

    With all these spoilers coming out and nothing about Team Rocket trio leaving I don't see them gone till the end of the series like Ash. Meowth has been fine, I hope they work Jessie and James out next series though, they seem confused how to write them these days =/

    Honestly the one thing I will say about TR is at least their costumes are improving.

    Ya but in the first episode of the new arc is the first time that I've actually been fooled by one of James's costumes.

    Meh, Ash has the brain of a 5 year old so it's no too shocking lol. Although how the older members don't see it is crazy.

    "Seger-Hakase," which more or less translates into "Dr. Seger." It's from a type of pyrometric cone called the Seger Cone, which makes a certain amount of sense when you consider that he debuted as part of the Meteonite arc.

    "Dr. Zager" is just a corrupted romanization of it.

    I really don't understand the dub and gamefreak sometimes....I hate when they change names and things by like one letter. Like Emonga. WTF is the point of the l in the English version?? It's just weird.

    As far as Emolga's case goes, I think I heard something once about "mong" being an offensive slang term in Britain or something?

    That doesn't explain Cofagrigus but it's something.

    Hmm... I'm not so sure what's going on with Team Rocket for now. :/

    So far I like them in "Episode N" a lot as being in unpredictable but I'm fine with them acting silly or serious, just as long as they don't appear in every episode as plot.

    Who knows what's up with TRio anymore? Who are they anymore? O_O

    I wish they'd leave the anime, personally. I never thought I'd dislike them as much as I do in BW. I can't make out whether their supposed to be serious, goofballs/idiots, or both. It gives me a headache tbh. rofl.
