    Well it didn't really help the Water types much that they didn't have a trainer there with them, even if they were I guess trained by them. What I don't get, is why anyone (If I understand this correctly) would abandon a Croconaw

    About time Snivy gets some action and wins a battle! So these pokemon got abandoned... How sad.. And TR is really starting to blast off again.
    Ash's team right now

    This episode was predictable, and not just because the whole episode was spoiled in the other thread. The story line was just overdone and ultimately boring. I disliked that the "pirates" had no real reason for stealing food; from what I could tell, they were simply misbehaving because their trainers abandoned them. Well, that's really not a good excuse for stealing imo. I disliked that Snivy and Pignite got to battle yet again and how easily they won said battle. Also, Jessie and James appearing near the end and then blasting off literally seconds after they said their motto was ridiculous. I finally understand why some people are upset with them. That Darumaka thing at the end just added insult to injury. The storm literally came out of nowhere and although I understand that the writers wanted to redeem Croconaw and the others, it was poorly done to the point where you could almost feel how forced it was. The only interesting part was when Oshawott chased after the pirates and returned to his Poke Ball imo. I give this episode two kisses out of ten.

    I liked the fact that both Pignite's and Snivy's pasts were brought up again. And with Snivy Iris said something along the lines of "so something did happen to her in the past after all". I wonder if they'll make an episode of that, I mean Tepig's evolution happening the way it did seemed very unlikely for a long time but they surprised us.

    That was my immediate thinking, too. God I hope so.

    Lol. The dub accidentally used the Black and White adventures in Unova opening again, and not the beyond one. I just found that funny and felt the need to point that out.
    In terms of the episode, I'd like to know the IQ of some of those trainers, of course Marill evolves into Azumarill and it might of had Huge Power.
    The Remoraid trainer was just as dumb. What a waste of a Croconaw.
    Geh...
    It's like I said a few months back, Fire Pledge really is overpowered in the anime.

    Let me see the few most important things:

    1) They used the N Opening again. Something tells me the original Decolore Opening wasn't of their liking, or they really did commit another mistake.
    2) PIKACHU AZUMARILL MORPH.
    3) You can easily twist those trainers' words to how real world people dislike the anime and the BW saga as a whole.
    4) "Sounds like Snivy had a hard time in the past..." *Drops the whole subject entirely* YOU DON'T FOREGO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT TO THE MOST INTERESTING POKEMON OF SUCKY ASH'S TEAM LIKE THAT. Gosh, these islands are truly Filler Islands.

    So, yes, I think the only highlight of this episode was the focus on Snivy, even in point 4 severely lowered the score for me.

    And that's not the only time in DA! that has happened. Remember Cilan and his Purrloin fear? Although unlike the Snivy one, Cilan actually told Ash and Iris what happened even if the audience still doesn't know. The audience wants to know these things and yet they keep giving us important bits of information that really would have developed Cilan and Snivy.

    I never said it was a filler arc. Some episodes of this arc are not filler but filler or not, most of the dub episodes that aired of this arc so far were really nothing special IMO.

    And in 5 seconds. Compare that to Orange Islands where Ash had a full 6 vs. 6 2 parter battle against Drake. And people say this is Orange Islands 2.0!?

    That was people hyping this the same with everything BW. They should blame themselves for expecting what wasn't going to happen.

    I don't think it's the hype either. I didn't hype this saga up too much and I am still not enjoying most of the dubbed episodes so far.

    I thought this episode was gonna be terrible at first, but in the end I found it to me decent.

    Wow i really enjoyed this episode alot, by far my most of favorite of the Decolore Islands so far, it was action packed from beginning to end even Team Rocket didnt mess it up thanks to the quick blast off, also Snivy and Pignite getting more screen time than Oshawott was a plus, also them being able to feel where the pirate pokemon were coming from.

    I fail to see how it was action packed.

    Tsutarja was beast in this episode. Pignite was too, I really enjoyed it. I had to watch it with subs because I wanted to know what Meowth was translating. I loved that Tsutarja challenged the Water Pokemon to a day and I'm loving the Vine Whip animation from the battle against Kotetsu. Looks fierce. :3

    I fail to see how it wasn't, pokemon invade a ship steal food, confusion everywhere, they go to the police get a boat, end up battling said pokemon and TR, how wasn't it action packed?

    LOL! The best part would have to be the remoraid trainer...even pokemon is trolling octillery (the posterchild counterargument for all individuals engaged in a saliva spat involving evolutionary consistency on this forum) for evolving oddly...
