Probably my favorite episode of DA, they managed to balance Alexa and the Sumo tournament without either feeling too rushed (maybe could've gone a little longer on the final round).
Defeated Super Single Subway Master Ingo - August 19th, 2013
Searching for: Litwick - Near Perfect IVs, Manetric (Shiny) - Good IVs, Switcheroo
Can offer high IV'd Bagons, Digletts, and Darumakas, as well as DWs, Pokerus, and more, PM me if interesting in negotiating.
It was a good episode 8/10
I find it bewildering and disheartening that the powers-that-be running the tournament are utterly unfazed and unaffected by TR being blasted off. There is no penalty to Golurk nor is there any concern or search for the contestants just sent flying across the horizon.
^my only thoughts about the episode.
How fitting that this episode comes out the very same day as Gen 6.
Ooh, title change!

Got the right intro again. Helioptile's voice was eh, but I really loved gogoat's, it sounded really unique and it was funny when it got annoyed by alexa. Was nice seeing pignite jn action again too. Unfortunately it is the last time we will probably until maybe the kalos league.
A love the voice for Alexa it fits her very much so does Helioptile and Gogoat , wow Ash actually remembers something as minor as the sumo competition from the Johto region, is it me or was the guy Ash argued with name Rodney who had the Golurk sounded and looked like Morrison from Hoenn does this mean TPCI hire 4kids VA's?
@yuoke, TPCI has most of the VAs that still works for them (4Kids), most just don't work for the dub anymore, retired, or dead. So before any flaming happens, no Veronica Taylor won't return asAsh.
There's a list floating around, look up who still works the dub.
I may have missed something because I don't remember Ash competing in a Sumo Competition before. So if it did happen, then that's pretty awesome to get a good throwback. While the tournament wasn't too eventful, at least Pignite got some good screentime.
That Ninja looking guy did remind me of someone. I just couldn't place the name. Morrison sounds like a definite possibility.
Alexa is pretty cool, and her voice is not too shabby. Can't wait to see more of her.
Alexa's dubbed voice was perfect and this was a okay episode 7/10 I think Tpci added some their own background music that are appealing during the sumo match.
I was a little disappointed this episode. I didn't pay attention to the spoilers for the Decolore arc when they aired in Japan but I was hoping this episode was more Kalos/Alexa centered. Either way it was nice to see new Pokémon and begin our Kalos transition.

Welcome to the cast, Alexa. I wished you could've shown an habitat full of Riolu but you showed Turtwig instead.
Regardless of her early bird cameo, the episode felt too rushed when the sumo competition was brought up, though I chuckled when Pignite won by default against a Slaking... How did that Slaking make it to the next rounds?
Congrats, Ash. You got such an important Hold Item. Many victories are assured... He isn't going to use it, is he.
OMG Ash referenced Johto! OH MY ARECUES!
I wonder who did Alexa. Sounded like I heard her.
Sean Schemel did the ninja guy right?

Great episode, nice to see Alexa and new pkmn, that reference to Johto was a nice touch as well. Kalos is coming, can't wait for Oct. 19th.

XY anime is here!
Looks like I've been pronouncing Kalos and Helioptile wrong.
Well, the sumo competition from Johto was mentioned which is pretty cool.. You know the one, where Totodile was falsely promised that he'd become a Feraligatr? Yeah that's the one..
Pignite should've evolved to believably throw that Golurk around. Oh and what on earth is this? This COTD not only looks like Morrison, acts like Morrison and gets a similar reaction out of Ash as Morrison did, but he has exactly the same voice too? How freaking inventive..
Gogoat's cry is pretty decent though and there were a bunch of older heavyweights, so I can't complain about that..
Kingler, my friend. No matter what, you will always remain my favourite Water type. You shouldn't have missed out on the Sinnoh League and I look forward to seeing you again, hopefully in the near future.
There you are, I see you in the back there!
yeah it was the same VA that did Morrison. He also looked and acted like him too almost
