    Great episode. It was almost awesome enough to make up for the crap we got last week. :s It's good to see Musashi-tachi back in Kanto with the rest of the Rocket-dan, and their interaction with Yamato and Kosaburou was comical as always. I'd like to know what they said to Sakaki to get him to smile... did they just basically tell him that the Maguma and Aqua-dan had disbanded?

    Satoshi's battle with Kikuko was excellent. Gengar pulled off some crazy moves and it really made me thankful that the episode had such good animation. It was so fast paced and energetic, I wish all Satoshi's battles could be this good. And Gengar is always awesome, so that was a plus from the beginning.

    The music they used throughout the episode was great as well. I especially liked the use of Mezase Pokemon Master. It was really fitting with Satoshi going back home and everything. Though I was disappointed with his reaction after walking inside his house. What kind of boy shows no emotion whatsoever upon seeing his best friend and his mother for the first time in likely over a year? >_> He just stands there with a dumb look on his face like he forgot who they were.

    Yeah well, what more would you expect from Ash?

    Pokemon > Humans for him. He seemed much happier on seeing his older pokemon than when he saw his mum and Misty. I bet he'll die single, surrounded by his pokemon and no one else.

    Misty and Delia didn't exactly jump him either <<;;
    Ash was startled to see Misty there hence the shock expression, and Delia and Misty just stood there and smiled.

    So Ash wasn't exactly the only one who showed no "OMG I MISS YOO!!" emotion. The entire scene of the reunition was crap.
    Of course, the only one showing real reunition happiness was Pikachu <<;;

    This is a nice touch from the writers to differentiate the Battle Frontier of the anime from the one in the games.

    by the way. when satoshi was on his way to pallett town he came across a waterfall. was it the same waterfall where he met misty during the first episode?

    anyway, this episode rocked, no doubt. the battle was cool, we got a lot team rocket action and a nice motto ( maybe a new one, who knows?) and the music fitted always which isn´t typical for opening music during an episode. I liked the parting scenes as well. Next episode looks nice as well, we get a hitler meowth XD

    You know what I found annoying about this episode? The animation was MILES better than the previous one. I liked the episode itself and all, but god damn. Surely the final league episode should have had at least a little more priority?

    You have to love the form of weaponry the gaurds at the entrance are weilding. Oh yeah, a big metal pole. THATS gonna keep a trainer and his Nidoking from destroying Team Rocket's main base!

    The begining of the battle where Gengar slid along the floor
    like a shadow was awesome. As was its Double Team attack, which was pulled off pretty nicely. Its been a while since I've seen a well animated Shadow Ball also.

    I think the best placed piece of music in this episode was the sudden outburst of 'Advance Adventure', which I didn't see coming at all. I love that song, and the scene they played it in was just so appropriate. I don't think they've ever actually played that piece in an episode, correct?

    Theres the fact that the designs for all the buildings seemed to be significantly different too (WTF @ the Battle Tube), though I wouldn't read into that factor too much anyways.

    Misty's in this episode!
    It's so cute that Tracey gave Misty an azurill but i'm not an orangeshipper anyways my question was:

    Will she come back again and travel with Ash?

    Yea i notice that too. i pause for Battle Palace and it look like a big castle rather than a Thailand like artitecture like in the game and also Battle arena look like another tower rather than an Shinto looking shrine.

    In that scene, they didn't show Jinai and Battle Pyramid. WTF?

    I had that thought too. When I checked, it didn't appear to be.


    There were a couple of amusing bits in the timing of Mezase Pokemon Master.
    -Ash's first view of Pallet (Masara) Town coincided with the line "Masara Town ni, sayonara bye bye".
    -The "Pikachu!" at the end of the next line almost, but not quite, coincided with Pikachu actually saying it.

    Wow. Compared to this one the previous episode looked even crappier ^_^
    First off, Team Rocket was awesome. The scenes in the headquarters were hilarious and a very nice motto later with excellent animation.

    I liked Agatha's and Scott's voices, they were fitting them pretty well. The battle in the gym was awesome as well with some very nice effects (lol at Gengar speeping over the floor).

    lol, thank God Ash hasn't lost his appetite. Seeing AG 125 and 127 already made me think his obsession for food was completely gone XD *makes a big deal about totally random things*

    Well, overall this was a great episode that made me looking forward to the Battle Frontier.

    Site note: Did Ash say 'Nyoro' instead of 'Nyoromo' when he saw that Poliwag? If he didn't, my ears either need a clean-up or he spoke very unclearly.

    -How much you wanna bet that Agatha gets a generic "old lady" voice in the dub?
    -It's about time we got to see TR members other than JJ&M. And, I don't know why but...I thought "MONDO?!" when I saw that random TR grunt that told Cassidy and Butch that Nanba wanted to see them. It might be because he sounded young and has a tan, plus the fact that I want him to show up in the anime, but...then again, I don't know what Mondo sounds like anyway.
    -Scott spouts random English a bit. Always good for a laugh.
    -So...WHY did Ash have Pikachu use Quick Attack against Gengar, again?
    -Ash's "WTF" reaction at seeing Misty=priceless.
    -Why DID Ash stop at Viridian, anyway? Unless he got back to Kanto through some port we don't know about, he should have made it to Pallet first.

    i think Viridan has a port so that why he stop there instead of Pallet.

    Well, I checked out the ep pics, and I'm pretty surprised.

    First off, to me, the new animation has made Giovanni look older and more evil. Though that's only my opinion in the end. However, if it does turn out to be that way, then it's good. I always like more evil looking villians.

    Second, Agatha, well, I didn't expect her to have blonde hair. Considering her age, shouldn't it be gray? Hmm, she might've dyed her hair for all we know.

    So, Agatha is just taking care of the gym while they try to get a new leader. How come Giovanni's no longer leader? Did he give it up to do TR full time? That's my guess.

    So they're doing BF next? Good! I'm doing that now in Emerald, and I need all the tips I can get. (Hmm, makes me wonder how the Pyramid one will go.)

    Plus, like many, I didn't like Ash reaction when Misty was seen in his house. Come on! You haven't seen your best friend in a long time! Hug her or something! >_<

    So, Misty has an Azurill now. Which is the child of Tracey's Marill? And one of Misty's pokemon is likely the father? Well, this will make some Orangeshippers crazy, but I can tell you, it's not a hint at all.

    I must say, there were a ton of surprises for this ep, but I guess that shouldn't have been a surprise itself, based on where we are now.

    And no Pokeshipping! ;_;

    Oh well. Here's hoping for ones in the other two eps.

    Also, here's hoping that the next one has Overgrowshipping in it. (That's Ash's Bayleef and Grovyle for those who don't know.) ^_^

    So Meowth daydreams about the Boss all through Houen and now...well...I donno, if I were writing it, he wouldn't have even *noticed* that James stepped on his foot.

    The Team's money problems, mentioned in Dues and Don'ts, must be over. That's one shiny HQ they got there.

    And earlier I was watching Evolution Solution in Japanese, and was commenting about how Giovanni sounded inappropiately...well, YOUNG. That seems to be over now--he actually sounds like a man in his 40s.

    After Jesse kicks Cassidy's Segway, look at Cassidy's earrings when she's yelling. There's something not right about the angle on those things as relative to her face.

    And how can they kick up dust in what appears to be a metal hallway?

    And...is that agent like, nine or something? Talk about sounding too young--he(?) seemed to be around 15-16, but...

    OK, it's great that Rocket HQ now has actual guards posted, but is that one guy when they leave holding a SPEAR? And his hair changed color! When B&C take off with their jetpacks, he has green hair, but when Jesse threatens him, it's brown.


    Scott sounds REALLY familiar. Who does his voice and who else have they played?

    And on that subject--WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH AGATHA'S VOICE?!?!

    So Ash, after years of experience and a Tournament in his recent past, decides to have his Pikachu body-check a GENGAR?

    It's the AMAZING 3D MOTTO!

    Pikachu is apparently now a Flying type. How long does it stay in the air?

    And they apparently packed their balloon full of pink smoke.

    And Scott has no license plate!

    Mimey seems to have a different voice than usual.

    And I see Delia redid the interior AGAIN. With a potted plant on a chair in the middle of the entryway.

    And they REALLY need to bring back Oak's Quiz. Brock's segment just annoys me.

    I read somewhere that Team Rocket got a new motto (I'm sorry if this was brought up a million times). Does anyone know how it goes?

    Hey Scott, nice guide. ^^

    Rushed, but still a good episode. Love the new Rocketto Dan motto. I hope the dubbers make a new version as well. Nice to see Yamato and Kosaburou make a return to the regular series. Man, the writers just love having Satoshi get royally pWned by these highly elite trainers. It was great seeing Gengar again though, he was one of my favorites back in the days of R/B/Y. ^_^
