I kinda remember the voice being the same... one of Sean Schemmel's first 4Kids works. Of course, I could be just thinking things.
Anyway, nice episode. Snorunt evolves.
"That would explain your haircut..." Remember James saying something like this after Jessie said Glalie was beautiful (or whatever it was she did)? And does anyone remember how he said something almost identical to that in Jirachi Wishmaker? O_o
BTW, and this doesn't just apply to this episode, but it's great that we get to keep seeing competent, varying, interesting Trainer's Choices this season. Sure, it's still usually VERY easy, but they're definately better now.
As for the Grand Festival itself, it was a bit boring to me. The character interaction was fine, but the whole concept of it being nothing more than a bigger Pokemon Contest was somewhat boring, I expected something more interesting and new. :/
