    I haven't seen the newer intro yet, but I liked how Yuoke was mocking Da! to tell you the truth. I'll be able to judge it for myself later on when I actually get to see it. XD.

    The Decolora Islands arc begins. They changed the dub opening again, this time with scenes from the Decolora opening from Japan. It was a good episode. This arc feels like the Orange Islands all over again. I'm looking forward to the next episode.

    Ash can't listen. The cruise guy said his name was Porter and 5 seconds later Ash says "That's very nice of you Parker."

    As for the ep itself not sure as to why people made this sound like such an awful ep to an awful arc. I thought it was pretty good

    So instead of just replacing "Adventures in Unova" for "Decolor Islands," the dub instead wrote the series as "Adventures in Unova & Beyond." LIES. Unova has been tossed into the trashcan.

    But the title brings a tear to my eyes. It's such an awesome sentence for a title. Definitely my best favorite part in Unova: the departure.

    People disliked this episode because it was essentially the start of a filler arc without purpose.

    Also because they dissed Iris for making Excadrill dig a hole on a ship.

    I know I am probably in the minority here but I actually enjoyed this episode. I fully embraced the type of saga I am dealing with until October comes around, one with much filler and no plot except Ash going back home. I'm still not quite convinced this was how they should have ended BW, which for all its faults, still was a good saga with a lot of plot and the fact that we are going out on a season with no plot is upsetting, but like I said, I know what kind of saga we are dealing with here. Oshawott was adorable in this, TRio was more tolerable than I thought they would be even if I am still not crazy about their change, the dream sequence was cool, and it was a fun episode.

    But what were they expecting? The writers pretty much did everything they could in Unova. Wasn't filler the only choice? I mean they could of done an arc based on the Conquest games where Ash and the others go back in time I suppose...Not sure if that would of pleased anyone. But din't BW have less fillers during the actual plot? Myself I'd rather have fillers like this rather then during the main plot.

    They quite honestly forgot MOST of the important places in Unova.

    White Forest/Black City
    Reversal Mountain
    Seaside Cave
    Abundant Shrine
    Marine Tube (if they added Humilau City, then why not this one?)
    Keldeo's secret place in Floccesy Town
    Clay Tunnel, possibly
    Cave of Being
    Liberty Garden
    Plasma Frigate
    Possibly the Moor of Icirrus
    Mistralton Cave
    Relic Castle (which unfortunately was taken down with the banned episodes)
    Lentimas Town
    Lacunosa Town
    All those bridges that were supposedly very important landmarks in the games, ESPECIALLY Village Bridge
    Grimsley, Velma I mean Shauntal, and Marshal are absent

    Add some fillers and you'll get a reasonable amount of chapters. DP in comparison included nearly everything except the Battle Frontier island (save for the Ranger episode with the Heatran).

    Awful title, awful OP. TPCi have really messed up with season 16. I actually thought the OPs for seasons 9-15 were half decent, except the name of Battle Dimension. No idea what that's supposed to mean.

    I can speculate that Dimension referred to Giratina, but alas the snake of massive doom never appeared in a normal episode.

    What about Sinnoh League Victors? That title only would have worked had Ash won the League.

    Well tbh, that title could have referred to anyone, not just Ash. That's why plural is used. x)

    I still didn't like having that be the title. I think it's plural to represent a trainer and their Pokémon won. So it's called Sinnoh League Victors because Tobias and his Pokémon won (even though he only used two of them). The title was clearly referring to Tobias and I don't think they should have named a whole season after a character who hardly appeared in the season.

    If I'm honest, BW totally put me off the pokemon anime. I can watch any past episode and still be interested, but these BW episodes are either too boring or too predictable.
    I just hope that this last episode will be great and restore my faith in the pokemon anime.
    Happiny is awesome

    Because the writers screwed up with the timing of BW as a whole. Having the league ending 35+ episodes before the series is terrible. The filler should be balanced throughout instead of basically nothing important happening after the league until xy.

    pretty good episode. Team Rocket is back to their old ways for sure now.. and once more took credit for ending the other team to the boss... but they did help though...

    Oshawott was awesome I love it when he just wanders around. osha osha osha osha!


    I'mgonna miss Axew once the XY anime comes.. I'll miss his innocence..

    I'm glad they kept the Decolora name. I hd a feeling they were,.. but also had a feelign they would call it somethign else.. glad they kept it.


    The opening was great. Showed enoguh to keep the theme of the Decolora adventure, without spoilerish things of whats to come like the past intros showing spoilerish things.


    Take a step and I'm on my way, gonna start all over again,.......again.

    Still Ash made it into the Sinnoh league so that is most likely what it reflects. I don't see why they can't just call it Pokemon DP and they just make seasons but no season surnames.

    Still wonder if they will keep the old name mixup thing like they did for Stephan with Porter

    Not necessarily. It just has to involve the victors of the Sinnoh League. And at least that season did involve the Sinnoh League.

    Adventures in Unova on the other hand began with the Pokémon League (who begins a season with a league!? And it involved the destinies of Ash's rivals... being the finale of Rival Destinies would have worked much better), then moved onto Episode N which is in Unova sure, but Ash isn't exactly on random adventures there, and now it's not even in Unova. It's the worst possible title they could have picked, and slapping "and beyond" on the end mid-season doesn't fix anything.

    And this is without the horrible music and poor footage editing for the N/DA arcs. :S

    Are you nuts? I like the current dub opening song. At least, it's far more catchier than TPCi's usual.

    The opening (not the song) for Adventures in Unova And Beyond sucks, particularly the first six seconds or so. The rest of it is just a bunch of scenes slapped together. The only part I liked was when Ash stepped on the puddle. I also laughed at how Cilan didn't appear until the end.

    As for the episode, I didn't like it much. Looks like Zoppi's back to work on his rhymes and stupid dialogue, full on.

    (N/A) Well, I liked Sarah Natochenny's Ash at the beginning of the episode for actually putting emotion in to the dream sequence, and she did a good job with that scene. The rest of the episode she was okay, but kinda bland.

    (+ and -) The opening was good, but the "and beyond" insert was very lazily and hastily done, IMO.

    (-) I just skipped over Professor Oak's scenes so I don't have to hear his voice after hearing the first 5 seconds of it. Dear god, it just sounds really bad to me. X_X

    (N/A) Team Rocket sounded really good at the beginning of the episode when talking to Giovanni, but sounded downright awful in the second half during the battle on the ship. Overall, okay performances by their voice actors today. Not good, but not bad.

    (-) Gotta say, Carter Cathcart's James has a simply terrible laugh when he was talking about the twerps being "irritating brats" as he put it. "HA-HE-HE-YUH-EYUH!" >_<

    (+) However, Carter Cathcart's Meowth actually sounds a lot better than he has in a while. Much improved in terms of his pitch.

    (N/A) Michele Knotz is overacting as Jessie but she does a respectable and good job as Jessie as always, so no complaints or compliments from me today regarding her performance.

    (+) Porter's voice was pretty good, IMO.

    (N/A: I could care less) *TPCi Dubbing Error: Well, he says his name is Porter, but Ash called him Parker like his name was in the original JPN version. Not a big deal at all, though.*

    Dub Rating: 80/100 (B-)

    I dunno. To me, he's more "So bad, it's laughable" than "so bad, it's horrible." *shrugs*
