    The pendant apparently was a gift from the old lady's husband who probably died at that point so it made the pendant a lot more special in the story.

    And team rocket were actually smart in this episode, when they found espurr and figured out it was the one to blame for everything, instead of first trying to blindly catch it, they actually tried to solve the problem AND THEN when they found out that they would have to find the old lady, they couldn't be bothered to do all that work, so then they decided to try to catch it. Which kinda makes them still seem selfish as usual but still give them a bit of humanity trying to help espurr first.
    This is why I think we need to wait for a good sub or even the dub episode to have a proper opinon. I've found that every episode I watched subbed or dubbed of XY, I find the episode more enjoyable than before. It wasn't really that way in DP or BW to me, but so far I've enjoyed pretty much all the episodes XY has shown so far except for XY015 which I still need to see.

    It's the little things that make a filler episode enjoyable. Like Ash and friends being creeped out and trying to think of what is going on in the mansion. Clemont is scared out of his mind but tries to convince himself and the others that there's a reasonable explanation, followed by Serena saying something crazy and making everyone feel worse multiple times

    I also agree with Supersonicbro that TRio was pretty enjoyable in this episode to me. Also I was laughing at James yelling at Meowth that it wasn't the time for jokes as they're running from Espurr because Jessie said something about a cat monster and Meowth said he's supposed to be that or something.

    Espurr was also so adorable in this episode. The perfect amount of cuteness and personality. A nice episode to watch every now and then

    I think that this is one of the few times that I actually WANTED to hear Meowth translate for a pokemon. A so so episode but the pokemon that got introduced reminds me of Final fantasy, so I guess that counts for something..

    My god this episode tugged at the heart stringas making a flood of feels come on out. This is the first time I think death has been touched on so much.

    Espurr looked creepy in the fan art and the games but the anime made him so cute. The ending was weird however. I thought Espurr was going to vanish after finding peace or the women was going to somehow turn into the old lady.

    As of the talk about ratings above I don't think ratings matter in 2014 or least not like how they did years ago with things like DVR and On Demand or even youtube.

    I wasn't expecting it to be such a sad episode. It's been a long time since the anime had this level of emotional storytelling, hopefully a good sign of things to come. And this isn't restricted to sadness but also when it comes to comedy, action, etc. A level of maturity I feel was last seen when DP ended.

    The Espurr's voice irked me because it sounded like a bird to me. I'm glad Clemont actually has a brain to piece logic together, unlike how Iris was a nightmare fetishist and Cilan laughed at the idea of ghosts existing despite the obvious fact ghosts are actually a thing in this world.

    Wait, what? Passed away? As in not even implying that she just went away somewhere? Oh, cheers! Maybe they'll start using the word "die" during the most critical moments... I won't hold up my breath for that. Still, this episode made me get the feels in the end.

    Also... Smiling Espurr. Mine never smiled once at me.

    I'm glad the dubbers respected the audience enough to keep the sadness. If this episode had been dubbed 10 years ago they would have changed it to the old lady just being sick and the granddaughter taking Espurr to visit her in the hospital.

    I liked that too. I think this is the first haunted house episode where someone actually figures out that it's a Pokemon doing everything.

    People can bash the current dub all day long but they do seem to stay close to the japanese which seems to please some fans.

    I don't know about any of the backstage stuff with companies, I don't look at spoilers or the Japanese versions. I just judge based on being a consumer of a product.

    I was expecting, because no major events are happening, a formulaic 'enter haunted house, ghostly goings on, look it's a Pokemon, laugh laugh laugh, roll credits' I feel had this been BW that probably would have been the case but this episode caught me off guard in that respect. I'm going to try and hold off on expectations for future episodes but I have a lot of hope for the saga.

    This episode was just as good as the original version. If it weren't for Espurr's dub voice, then I would've said this episode was even greater than the original one, but the cute "Nyapaaa~" was way better than the dub cry.
    I'm glad it still was sad. Like Lady Umbreon said, it would have been a shame to replace the dramatic side of the episode.
    It was good. They are making a great job dubbing the XY episodes. It still is my favorite XY episode, so far.

    I just want to say that the English VA for the COTD was actually really good. However, I like the Japanese version of Espurr (although props for giving the purr to Espurr's voice; great attention to detail).

    Something interesting to note even though it was very minor, the rocking horse was a Ponyta which isn't in the Kalso regional dexes. This could suggest XY will take advantage of the full national dex instead of just the regional dexes.

    This was a pretty good episode. It made me kinda like Espurr a bit more since I had always found it creepy.

    Yeah, I missed the first ten minutes but the rest was good. I liked that they kept some of the sadder pieces in and I thought they sounded fine along with some of the TPCi bits that were added. A solid episode overall.

    At first i was like "Oh it's the ever popular take-shelter-from-the-storm-in-an-abandoned-haunted-house-see-a-pokemon-with-a-room-full-of-toys-episode"

    But once again the saga surprised me towards the end there. I wasn't expecting it to tug at the heartstrings the way it did. The part during the flashback where The Lady was gasping for breath, wow! And actually dubbed that she had passed away.

    This saga continues to amaze me little by little. Definitely taking a new direction in the anime. I forgot, There's supposed to be a new team handling the series right or did i read wrong somewhere?

A full-feature movie, 4 two-parter episodes from the Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos anime sagas, a 5-episode arc featuring my trainer Korrina, 3 appearances in the Smash Bros games and a Poke spokespearson for the Pokemon Trading Card commercials and the upcoming Pokken Fighters game. May I soon reach the fame that belongs to Pikachu"

    I just thought it was new director but maybe after BW they wanted a new team. Really if we got a new team every saga that would be cool. Fresh ideas or at least fresh takes on some old ideas. I'm wating till the day they get fans from the old days working on the show since in a few years that is going to be possible since the kids who watched the old stuff are close to the age they could work for it now.

    Best spooky episode so far. It was kinda funny how Ash and friends and TR ended up doing things that were freaking out the others. I liked James' behavior best out of them though.
    And it was nice to see Espurr too.

    Great episode. But it was indeed sad throughout the time. Really sad that Lacy passed away (her coughing in the flashback foreshadowed her death).
