    Default Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals! (781)

    The White Ruins! Ash VS N!!

    Arriving at the Dragonspiral Tower, Ash & Co. learn that Cedric Juniper has discovered the location of the White Ruins, where the Light Stone is found, which can be used to awaken Reshiram. When they enter the White Ruins and find the Light Stone, it becomes engulfed with light and N soon appears. Asking what Juniper's intent is with the Light Stone, N reacts badly and takes the Light Stone from him. However, soon afterwards, Team Plasma appear with intent on the Light Stone. Will Ash & co. be able to stop them?

    Surprised at the lack of discussion here today so far

    Anyway, quick run-down of what's happened. Ash & Co. have arrived at the ruins so far, being picked up by Cedric's assistant. Team Plasma are stalking them, while Team Rocket are stalking Team Plasma due to a tracking device they placed last week.

    Cedric has solved a puzzle in the ruins which has created an opening into a vast area (that looks suspiciously like the ruins from the TR VS TP ep).

    Cedric finds the Light Stone which sets off a light showing his location to N and Team Plasma separately. They exit the ruins.

    After discussion of the legend, N appears while TP grunt Brad watches on. Angie & Colress are on a plane and receives orders from Ghetsis

    Dare da - Crustle

    N tries to convince Cedric that the Light Stone shouldn't be accessed to no avail, so he comes down and steals it, explaining again what Reshiram did.

    N runs off while Ash makes chase. Ash gets stuck in the ground, and N tries to aid causing them both to fall. N drops the Light Stone down in order to save Ash.

    They both land safely in the ruins while Cedric, Iris and Cilan are surrounded by Team Plasma, as are all the archaeologists. N explains how he sees Pokémon get mistreated by humans often, left in box in the streets and so forth. He says that it's not true of Ash or Pikachu, but it still happens.

    Cedric's assistant manages to attack Angie, but Angie tears off his disguise and it turns out to be Looker. Colress then appears and manages to turn all the wild Golurk to do his bidding. Iris and Cilan send out Dragonite & Crustle to try and calm the Golurk.

    The battle ensues, with Jessie & James watching from above, but the battle doesn't bode well and Dragonite & Crustle fall. N hears the battle and decides to act.

    End of episode.

    It would seem that Keyhole TV is down. So we can't watch it. I'm not sure how you're watching it though...

    Oh, that'd explain it. I'll update my post with a rundown. Pics should be up within an hour or so of its end

    Well for some reason, I am unable to log in to Keyhole TV. Maybe other users are also having trouble. Login timed out.

    Oh, so I'm not the only one, cool. Although I'm at uni anyway. Thanks for the summary Serebii. I like action and suspense so far.

    No problem. Overall it was a decent episode. These climax episodes clearly are leading directly into eachother so hard to judge each one individually as they're all part of a single story

    Definitely a stellar episode. Based on just this episode and the trailer for next week, I think it's got a very good chance of topping Team Galactic.

    This is what I was waiting for all this time.

    the pic shot at the end looks funny cause from the angle Looker's positioned he looks like he's going to hit Corless with that pipe, here's hoping he does.

    I'd also like to say thanks to Serebii! I always access the thread from my phone, and it's always useful when someone puts a full summary on the first post. ^.^

    Anyway seems like a great episode. Ash and co seemed to fall a lot though. xDD But nice, very nice. Can't wait to watch it.

    I can't be the only one who thought that rock looked like a pizza, right?

    More Looker hand-to-hand action. "Screw Pokemon, i have Fighting Skills!".

    He's truly awesome. And his theme that played during the introduction, gave him a great moment to shine. I'm glad he reappeared in Best Wishes!

    Too bad we couldn't see his action in the canceled 2 parter

    Serebii you used the wrong summary for your intro paragraph.

    I like what the writers did with this episode, a lot actually.

    Idk if anyone remembers but, the Black Hero in the Golden Dark Stone episode has the spitting image of Ash, and I just thought that was a coincidence, but now seeing the White Hero, who looks exactly like N, I'm really liking what the writers are doing.

    Idk what N and Ash were fighting about, I'm guessing it's just them bickering over the Light Stone. Even though I'm sad N and Ash didn't actually battle, I'm still glad the whole "truth vs ideals" conflict from the game was made present.

    Really makes me look at Ash and see a image of Hilbert standing above him

    Just watched the episode....N's part is dialogue heavy as always so I can't exactly talk much about it. But yeah Looker threatened Angie with a pipe.....well...

    Yeah I know it's a childrens show, and guns are knives are considered taboo. But you don't normally threaten people with a pipe.

    It was good though.

    Just watched the episode. It's a good start to the climax. Too bad that it wasn't subbed right now, it would probably be better once I know what's going on. Anyways I noticed that the white hero looks alot like N, I wonder what's being said in that part. Also Looker appears again in this episode and threatened Angie with a pipe. Also the argument between Ash and N looks interesting. I give it a 9/10. Also the preview to the next episode looks interesting, Charizard appears again

    I thought this was a decent start to the finale, it got everyone to the ruins and made it feel like something big was gonna go down. Team Plasma actually looked somewhat threatening. The conflict with N was pretty tense if a bit short. And hopefully we got some good development out of that conversation.

    So far, so good.

    I didn't care much for this episode. I know it's meant to see up the climax, but I thought it was just a regurgitation of things we've already seen and learned about. I liked N's moments though, if only because the animators always pay close attention to detail whenever he's on-screen (well duh, he's practically prince charming), and Team Rocket was enjoyable during the few scenes that they appeared in imo. I did feel that Cedric Juniper was redundant though. Looker was there and he's a top-notch investigator so I can't help but feel that he could have also taken on Cedric's role. But whatever. I give this episode five kisses out of ten.

    Good LORD Meowth's face in the beginning, that's the most diabolical expression I've ever seen in Pokemon lol. I love how TR's just standing in the sides watching the destruction unfold, being all evil.
