    Eee! Kaede's name is now KATIE~! *flashes victory sign*

    ...And Hyuuga's name is now Clark, for some reason.o_0 Both of them had nice voices; and the battles were great. My favorite moment was Pinball Glalie(as I've decided to call it)--brought back memories of Pikachu vs. Raichu, for some reason. A 9.5/10 here...these battles keep on getting better!

    They had the Magic Feeling. I found that to be funny. Peanut butter and cactus burritos ?!. God help us all..... I liked the battle, and destiny bond was a nice surprise. Though I thought they should've mentioned arena trap with Dugtrio, they at least implyed it so the older game fans would know what she was doing.

    Personally, Glalie's rebounding tactic reminded me more of Piloswine vs. Pikachu in Pryce's battle. Both Pikachu and Glalie were bouncing off ice pillars and using the speed to outdo their opponent. Quite a similarity.

    EDIT: lol, I have so much to say about this episode xD Anyhow, has anyone else noticed how the animé has pretty much ignored the Ghost/Normal advantage throughout the League? Meowth in Boots was hit by Persian's Shadow Ball in the battle, and then again in the flashback, when neither of them should've affected it. And then here, Glalie perfroms a Normal Typed attack(Headbutt) against a Ghost Type(Misdreavus), and it knocks it out. Indeed, it was necessary to show Destiny Bond's effect, but Glalie could've done the same thing with Ice Beam, and the effect would remain. Have there been other instances of the Ghost/Normal advantage being ignored, or were the writers just not remembering it in the League?

    Destiny Bond (from Katie's Misdreavus) in the anime for the first time was pretty cool... I never use the attack in the game myself but hey... it was still neat.

    Ash using Grovyle and Glalie against... Charizard and Quilava?! Normally, in the game, Grass and Ice-type Pokemon would be knocked out in a few seconds by Fire...

    I knew that Clark guy would have an accent the moment I saw him. Interesting to see a "conductor" on the battlefield.

    Ash had to actually go against a Charizard for a change. Amazing how Snorunt which had no wins as far as I remember manages to become a powerhouse as a Glalie.

    Tyson's battle was nice, I've been itching to see an Aggron in a battle.

    They played one of the Pikachu Jukebox songs! They should play these more often if they need to get rid of music with Japanese lyrics.

    Ash vs. Katie rocked. She's my favorite character from the Hoenn league now, with Morrison a close second. She was battling using "game" strategy attacks, it was exciting to see her constantly training and adaption to the battle, along with seeing Destiny Bond for the first time.

    I really enjoyed this episode. I love Quilava and his voice is awesome. Seeing another Charizard was great too. I just love Glalie and his voice is so awesome too. Flame Wheel looked cool as did Heat Wave. I was expecting Wing Attack from Charizard, not Steel Wing but whatever. I liked Clark too, totally unexpected name but hes a neat character. Katie was also cool, bout time we see a kick *** girl character who was beating Ash good. Venomoth's voice annoyed me more than usual. I used to like it but it seems weird now *shrugs* Poor Torkoal got blasted out so early in the match. Dugtrio was neat, yay Pikachu got knocked out early too. Was a really cool ep, i liked it a lot.

    Edit: Forgot to mention Tyson's battle against Aggron :P How could i forget seeing as im full of Sceptile images. I didnt think Sceptile was pronounced they way they said. I've always said Skeptile not like Ceptile. Anyway Sceptile is a cool pokemon and its voice is cool too.

    Katie was awesome. Awesome to see Venomoth actually do anything. That hasn't happened since... Hm, Koga? And I'm glad to see Ash have as hard a time with Walrein in the league as I did. X-x that thing's a *****.

    Poor Mimey's sick, though, and the way Venomoth came up from the water made it look dead. =(

    Hehe, I liked this episode. =D Katie's voice sounds awesome~

    Though I still preferred her original name. =/

    It was a nice battle overall, since Katie kept having tricks up her sleeve and all making Ash actually think a little more about his moves. =P

    This episode was pure awesome. I loved the battle with Hyuuga, or Clark. It's weird how they are pronouncing Sceptile, but I'll live. The best part about the battle with Hyuuga was the end when Glalie created all the ice pillars, and then used the to score a critical hit Headbutt on Charizard. It's nice how they kept Kaede's name too, although, I think they pronounced it ''Katie''?

    Like Grovyle, but a bit cooler sounding. Oh, and his name was pronounced Scept as in 'Scepter', not as in 'skip'.

    In-your-face to everybody who has been insisting to me ever since R/S's release that it's pronounced "Skeptile" instead of "Septile". It comes from "Scepter", which is pruonounced "SEP-TER". I expect/hope to see the term "Skeppy" a lot less around here.

    Anyways, this episode and the one following were HAWT for one reason - KAEDE! The name Katie was predictable (it was either that or just Kate), though Clark was a surprising one. I'd swear they'd call him Hugo. The Kaede battle is easily the best in this entire League (and don't think it's because of my fanboyish obsessions, as I thought the Jasmine battle was terrible).

    Yeah, I have to agree with S.S ._. Sceptile is rather obvious. Just look at other 'sc' words. Discernable. Scent. Scepter. Susceptible. Coalesce. None of those words have a hard C sound, so why should Sceptile?

    I have to admit, this one was pretty impressive. I like the fact that they had the music from the end credits of pokemon heroes(forget the actual name of the song). It was quite intense. It somewhat reminded me of the Kanto Indigo League, with the terrain and all. Although Pikachu was K-Oed way too early and that Katie always switched pokemon got on my nerves(how dare you, j/k).

    The fact that Misdreavus used Destiny Bond was uncalled for(i dont think weve ever seen that attack used at all in the past).

    Yep one cool battle^^

    10/10

    He kinda sounded like Bakura from Yu-Gi-Oh (but that's just me)

    Anyways, this episode...okay for the most part. I GOT TO SEE ONE SECOND OF TRACEY AGAIN!!! So I'm a happy pervert. Now then, I knew Kaede's dub name was going to be Katie, so when I heard it, I'm like Holy Crap, I was right about something.

    So okay!

    Soft British accent. As if they made the Potter connection.

    A fine episode. I missed most of the Clark battle, but I did see the Kaede battle. It's nice to see someone who actually uses switching as a key tactic in their battles.

    What's with all the accents lately? Robert, then Clark today (Juan too? I missed his episodes)

    With the way these guys look, accents aren't out of the question. It also adds more flavor to the dub, to hear people who don't all sound like Americans. O_o

    Jumping way off topic, but did Juan have an accent? Somehow I assume they made him British when he really seems to be French..... :P

    And OK, I'll cede one thing.....Kaede was kinda cute, I admit. Better than most random characters who appear for 1-2 episodes and vanish, in looks and battling skill.

    Either that or Crunch(Dumb writers).This ep. was cool, and shows the writers can do something write(v_vş) if they try. Too bad it's about to come crashing down...but then there's the Frontier, so..yeah, mixed feelings here.

    A good episode. I love Katie! Plus I'm finally glad to see Sceptile. I loved how Glalie took down Charizard in Ash's battle against Clark. Glalie Rules!

    Sceptile actually sounds better with the silent "c", didn't see that one coming, though!
    My new Pokemon Fanfic, "The Prodigy Project" has started.

    Read the prologue for the Kanto arc HERE

    The first proper chapter will be posted in October, shortly after the release of XY.

    I thought everyone pronounced it like that. S'k'eptile sounds weird.
    MY BELIEFS
    - Globalization is a force for good. Saying that it is cultural imperialism is pure exaggeration. And yes, globalization does help poor and developing countries.
    - The Japanese prime minister should stop visiting the Yasukuni Shrine NOW.
    - Multinational corporations are heavily underrated. They truly deserve more love.
    - There is no god.
