    I agree with this-- usually it's just "CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAESSSPINNNN" or "EXXX-CAAAA-DREEEEEEEEEEEEELLL" and any other generic voice you can think to give a Pokemon from PUSA/TPCi, but this was much better than their usual crap.

    Anyway, this episode actually kinda sucked, but it could be that I've seen it rehashed so many times now that it's gotten stale more than anything else. Poacher was annoying as crap, IMO.

    This episode wasn't so bad. I actually prefered the dub version over the original, which is a first for the XY serie.

    I liked Diggersby's voice as well. Instead of something generic like "DIGAAAAH-ZBEEEEEEEEE", it was more of a "DIGAZBLBLBLREEE"... I think.

    The only thing that I disliked more about the dub was the absence of "Let Serena and the others go!", which was a cute AmourShipping I found well placed...

    My gosh! The balance of the raw and dub BGM for this episode was amazing!!

    This is the first time I think the dub used this much of the RAW music before

    How dare they demonize Diggersby by making his first anime appearance as a bad guys Pokemon!!! However! As long as future antagonists use a diverse array of Pokemon I won't make a big fuss about it.

    Fine episode. Dolan looking like Wario was funny. The one hilarious moment was when Dolan fainted saying "I give up." No Team Rocket is always nice to see, those three members deserve a break from showing up every once in a while.

    This was a pretty good episode. I enjoyed the mass evolution as well as being amused by Dolan's strong resemblance to Wario.

    Froakie's isnt bad either. It is just saying his name, but it sounds uniwue and kind of like a croaking sound a frog makes.

    Default "To Catch a Pokémon Smuggler!"

    I liked this episode and also found it more entertaining than the previous episode. It was kinda funny when Officer Jenny mistook Ash for the Pokémon smugger's helper at the beginning, and later got embarrassed after he explaind the story. She marked the Pokémon smuggler Donal as a thief, which makes sense since it has been established that capturing wild Pokemon with any method other than bonding or with a Pokeball is wrong. Most of the people who catch Pokémon with Pokeballs, usually bond with the Pokémon afterwards.... But that's not the case with Donal. He only saw the Scatterbug and Spewpa as money-making Product. He only cared about selling the Pokémon to money, which a bad reason to capture a Pokémon. Even though he was targeting wild Pokémon, his bad purpose of catching the Pokémon caused Officer Jenny to get involved.

    I gotta admit, I liked Ash's rather funny explanation of evolution. The writers are doing a good job with handling Ash's personality, so far he seems like a mix between his BW self and his DP self .... which is great. But what stood out in this episode was the teamwork of the main group. Clemont's idea of using Chespin to wear the Spewpa suit was good, and his invention was quite useful for most of the time. Serena was also pretty good in this episode, she was the one who came up with most of the plans to catch Dolan and she even supplied the group with the Spewpa costumes. Bonnie didn't do much here, but at least she and Dedenne tried to help with the Spewpa disguise.

    Eventually the gang found out Donal's hideout.... but unfortunately Clemont, Bonnie and Serena were trapped in a net, leaving Ash alone to battle him. Even though Ash and Froakie couldn't do much against Donal and his Diggersby, but they still managed to put up a good fight. Nice to see all the Spewpa evolving into different patterns of Vivillon, it reminded me of the BW episode where many Metapod evolved into Butterfree at the same time.

    The English dub of this episode was pretty good. 6 pieces(7 if you count the title screen music) of the original japanese music were kept in the dub, which is the most amount of original music TPCI kept since the preview episodes. This time they actually balanced the amount of dub music and original music instead of butchering all the original music, hopefully they'll start keeping more original music in the future. The voice acting and the script was good, but the only thing I didn't like about the dub was the replacement of Ash's line "Let Serena and the others go!" with "Let all my friends go!". I know both lines sounds same, but "Let Serena and the others go" was much better.

    A nice little episode.

    Even though it was quite standard for the episode. It was both beautiful and amazing to see the mass evolution of Spewpa into Vivillon and the plethora of colour shown at the end was awe-inspiring.

    Also, was it just me or did Dolan sound like eggman from Sonic?

    Good episode. Onto the next one!
    Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.

    I haven't seen the episode, so I'm guess Mick Pollack, the voice of Eggman was him.

    I enjoyed this episode. I loved the fact Dolan looked like Wario.
    I was a bit disappointed Vivillon didn't want to go with Ash though.

    I definitely liked this episode more than the last one. Too bad Diggersby was classified as a Pokemon one can be called an antagonist. Hopefully Clemont's Bunnelby stays cute and good. :P

    Seeing the vast amount of Vivillon at the end was breath taking. Since I collected every pattern of the species, I can tell it's beauty is endless. Really wish Ash had caught the Vivillon it used at the end. But oh well.

    Officer Jenny: Dolan's a Pokemon Smuggler. He steals Pokemon and sells them.

    Ash: A Pokemon Smuggler? I've never heard of one of those before...

    >Team Rocket
    >Pokemon Poacher Brothers WHO STOLE ASH'S LARVITAR EGG
    >Poacher in Sinnoh who tried to steal a wild Snorunt
    >Hunter J
    >Rizzo in Unova who tried to poach Volcarona

    Why, Ash? Why?

    i think poacher and smuggler are two different kinds of people.

    They pretty much operate the same way though: by snatching Pokemon to sell on the Pokemon world's version of the black market. :x

    It's annoying when Ash forgets things, but so far he's doing waaaay better in XY than in BW with his memory.

    But at least Daz is not as relentless as J in my opinion. J literally shots to a Pokémon such that they can not move at all but Daz just simply put into a box. J does catch Pokémon that people owns but apparently Daz just find them from the wild I guess.

    They do that for the kids who are too young to watch previous seasons. It's silly but it just has to be ignored.

    When Ash scanned Koffing last Arc against Roxie, I just :smh:...you're right, but...it's just so frustrating either way.
