Nice episode, I loved all the interactions that are mentioned above. My only issue is that there really should've been a battle at the end(preferably Charizard(Or in a perfect world, a Unova reserve) vs Noivern, Ash wanting to test its strength seeing a new brand threat arise) due to there being a freaking Battle field central to the plot.

To me, Ash and Co and Team Rocket didn't seem as interested in seeing Noivern, a Pokemon they've never seen before. Especially TR, they would be interested in something like that. Plus its voice was meh. Is it me or is it the fact that the VA's over at TPCi not putting in any kind of effort to these Pokemon voices? Hardly none of 'em are as unique as Gen I was.

...You know, I don't care about showing the correct or wrong opening anymore. We got the correct one, but this is nearly the end of the Da! Islands.
Not even pointing out the fact Noivern is a Dragon type to Iris, Alexa? She would be head over heels for it if she knew.
The ending of this episode sounded like perfect cliffhanger material, but alas, a new island is up next.

Good filler for the weekend of Halloween. The lady in there was creepy. I'll say that much. I do wonder if she was the actual ghost of the lady from the past or a ghost Pokémon imitating her like we had with Ghastly in "Ghost of Maiden's Peak." Guess we'll never find out. But it did make the ending of the episode much creepier since we didn't find out who she was.
One issue I have had since DP were episodes like this. It seems they try to push too much into one episode. This could of been a great two parter with the mysterious women being the focus on part 2.
This episode made me hate Iris even more due to calling Ash a kid when she freaked out 15 seconds prior....
Good ghost episode. I thought Noivern was really cute.

The perfect episode for the week of Halloween, funny how that managed to happen, so glad this will be our final month of DA, hope after the official last episode we jump right into XY
I found this filler to be really boring. I had assumed that because Ghost-types were appearing in this one, it would be entertaining or at least mildly spooky but it was so generic. The only highlights for me were Team Rocket's Ghost Pokemon disguises and how Ash and the others didn't notice them when they first arrived at their chamber; how could they not see them? It's not like they were hidden all that well. Anyway, I also liked Alexa's Noivern's debut, but the whole legend of the ruins thing felt so cliche; we've heard stories like that a million times already. I wish this episode had been more fun. :x
And one thing also hit me is that Ash's father could be from a different region where he was born from where he hasn't meet Ash's mother Delia yet.I really don't know what region could he be from, but I have a feeling that would happen some where during in the 7th Gen of Pokemon where Ash will be going to his 7th region.
And one more thing the hero who has a Pikachu in the episode "A Different Kind of Misty" would be the same Pikachu that would been sent to the future happens to be Ash's Pikachu.Like if a Celebi brought Pikachu into the future.
And one last thing I like to see Ash get a Lucario in the 7th generation.
Fine episode, but a good one to line up with the end of Halloween. Noivern is pretty cool. It was funny when Meowth ate one of those spicy berries, lol. Also a bit funny when the gang had to split up for a bit. I wonder if that Conley Comet will show up again in 2023...
A good episode. It was a proper adventure where the gang explores an ancient story. I really liked seeing the ghost type pokemon and their characteristic cheekiness. Also, the debut of Noivern was nice but I did want to see more of it and maybe learn some more about it but I guess they are leaving it to the XY series.
On to the next one!
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.
Apparently i'm a...
Favourite Pokemon: but i like them all
Was this even a filler when a new pokemon was shown?
This was an ok episode aside from seeing Noivern for the first time as well as Gengar, Banette, and Dusknoir's return.

I wasn't all that excited for Noivern, since I'm not a huge fan of the Pokemon to begin with. However, I'm not inclined to say he's a bad Pokemon, just didn't find it interesting to see his debut.
The ending got pretty spooky, and built my curiosity, but it's saddening to say that it won't be touched upon. Oh well.
Loved the kind of interaction we got between our main characters. Pretty entertaining, I would say.
I loved this episode. It was great to see Noivern and I loved seeing the ghost Pokemon again.
This was the perfect episode for the weekend of Halloween, I liked how this episode was focused on Ghost-type Pokémon and the Conley Comet. The legend behind the Conley comet and the setup for the ending with the mysterious woman Anima was interesting. Anima was kind of creepy, she reminded me of the Gastly who was imitating as a beautiful woman in "Ghost of Maiden's Peak".
It's funny how Conley actually looked like an older version of Ash, but nobody mentioned it. I honestly thought they'd make this episodes plot similar to "The Keystone Pops", but this episode turned out to be different from that episode.
It's cool to see Alexa's Noivern for the first time in the anime. I liked Noivern's dub voice, it's suitable for the Dragon-type Pokémon in my opinion. I am surprised that Iris wasn't excited after seeing new Dragon-type Pokémon, but I was fine with it since she annoyed me by calling Ash a kid. Geez, this episode made me hate Iris for her calling Ash a kid, when she herself got scared fifteen seconds prior. Team Rocket was annoying as always, I didn't care for them in episode.
The part with Ash and the others watching the Conley Comet was nice, too bad Alexa lost all the footage she recorded throughout the episode. The ending with the mysterious woman Anime was surprising, but we didn't even get to know who she was? I think it'd be better the writers made another episode explaining the mystery behind Anima, but sadly they didn't do that. This could've been a great two-parter if they did that.
This is not a filler episode because Alexa is revealed to have a Noivern !

Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!
This episode had some great Team Rocket dialogue. Comedic with a supernatural twist makes it stand out from the rest of the DA! episodes. My favourite exchange was between JJ and Iris/Cilan when they were escaping the ghosts.
Jessie: Respect your elders!
Iris: What does that even mean?
Jessie: You're a kid!
Iris: YOU'RE A KID!
Cilan: Can we do this another time?
