It disappointed me a little bit at the end but otherwise itn was still pretty good.

On-topic, I hate how Ash keeps on looking up data for Pokemon he already has knowledge of, like the Gengar in this episode, for instance.
Anyone notice that Norman keeps getting shafted of appearances? He didn't come to the Grand Festival, only Caroline did.
Now in this episode where May and Max return home, only Caroline is there to greet them.
Jeez, I know Norman is a busy guy seeing as how he's the Gym leader and everything, but couldn't they at least take the time to show him a bit more?
They could have at least shown Norman and his slaking owning some Delcatty or something while May and the others get reunited in the jungle room
I just saw this, and Scott is too fat for the voice they gave him. :-\
The new TR motto is different.
Pokemon White 2 Team
I saw this episode today. Here's my remarks:
- Having the team split up in different directions
- Having Ash and Brock split up later
- showing Scott and Agatha
And my most favorite part:
THEY FIXED THE GHOST THING!! Until now most of the ghost pokemon got hit by normal attacks like quick attack. But when Pikachu went right through Gengar, i was overjoyed! For ONCE they decided to make ghosts "Normal" proof. Took them long enough.
- Having Scott explain the whole Battle Frontier
- Having Team Rocket return to HQ and create a fake resume of their Hoenn thing.
- Having people continuesly screw up Butches name ("hey Biff!", "Its Butch!"), thats a great screw up they do!
- Team Rocket having a new Motto(after 10 damn years...)
- Having Golbat use Air Cutter(they havent yet shown that attack until now).
- Having Misty appear at Ash's house(i was not too much expecting that)
- Having Prof. Birch and Max show up(^same as above)
This is probably one of the best episodes i have had seen in a while and i adore the fact that CG is being used more and more!
Cant wait too see the rest of this season!(now assuming this is the beginning of the Battle Frontier, we should probably be getting Pokemon 8 in North America at around May/June, hopefully).
"I'm not really here that much, if at all. I've moved on, to a different site."
"But, it's been fun. I'll come back every so often, but for the most part, I won't post much."
That must have sucked!Originally Posted by The Big Al
Well anyways, Agatha's voice for some strange reason kind of reminded me of Phyllis Diller. I know it sounds weird but that's what her voice reminded me of.

I thought she was going to sound like a man for some reason but when I heard her, her voice was really nice.Originally Posted by Medea
Trust me when I say your gonna see alot of CG for the BF. This episode was good. I cant believe I didnt notice the new motto. Although I was half paying attention at the time. Anyway I liked TR's interaction the most. I hope that we eventually maybe at the end of this saga we know why Giovani loses his position as gym leader. Also hopefully we get to see who the new Viridian gym leader is.This is probably one of the best episodes i have had seen in a while and i adore the fact that CG is being used more and more!
I always enjoy end of journey/back to Kanto episodes between seasons.
I knew we'd see Agatha this episode, but I didn't know she'd be the temporary gym leader of Viridian City.
Did May really ask Caroline why she didn't see Norman's car in the driveway? Was that in the original? I mean I know we see cars pass by on a street later on, and then we even see Scott drive off in a car (in fact, we even get a glimpse of Birch's jeep), but it still sounded quite... strange. I can't imagine a car in front of their house.
Always nice to see Giovanni. And a new assignment, eh? Meowth said something like, "Somewhere sunny would be nice, thank you." Then they get assigned Antarctica. XD Was that in the original, too? I know South America was in that undubbed TV drama, but I doubt they'd mention a real world place in the original simply as a joke.
"Hey Max, look at this Poliwag!" Lol, I half expected Ash to tell Max about the Poliwag when he arrived with Professor Birch. XD
Okay, now as for voices:
Cassidy: Wasn't perfect, but seeing as she's such a rare character I'm fine with it.
Scott: Another voice by the guy who voices Tristan and Zolo and Harland and a lot of other people. Honestly, I like this voice actor. One of 4Kids' best ones. His voice sounds very realistic, and I usually find myself happy when he's given a role.
Agatha: Sort of a generic old lady voice, but it seemed a little special to me.
Misty: Yep, about the same as usual. That's all I want.
Delia: Normal, I guess.
I was just thinking about that similarity today. Yeah, that'll be interesting... if it weren't a new episode I'd close my eyes and see if I can tell who's supposed to be saying each line. XDOriginally Posted by CyberCubed
So anyway, all the voices are pretty good, IMO. Of course, with PUSA giving these voice actors the boot, WHO CARES ANYWAY?! X/
...ehem. Interesting episode as I mentioned earlier, these between-region episodes are always good. 8/10.

Oh, goody. Another strange Trainer's Choice, this one while not incorrect, will be harped on to kingdom come. One word, to all those who will thump this for all it's worth like the Arbok/Seviper incident: CRUNCH.
Great episode otherwise. Ash got screwed royally facing Agatha---it seemed Pikachu had taken no damage up until that Dream Eater that took it down. But it was a better battle than I expected; I had anticipated Agatha to completely destroy him like Anabel did, but Agatha's win ended up being a surprising come-from-behind.
I liked TR's new motto, but will they seriously be keeping it from now on? I find it surprising they changed it at this point.
Agreed on Scott's voice. >_> Just didn't fit him at all.
While on the topic of Scott, his little Battle Frontier speech made me think one of these two things will be true: that A) The Battle Pyramid's symbol is more valuable than the others and is a champion's trophy of sorts, or B) [and this was more Agatha] that the real new Viridian Gym Leader will be the capper of the Frontier saga.
How exactly did Prof. Birch drive from Hoenn to Kanto? O_o
Hey yall, I was right in my assumptions of Attacks when I wrote a guide over the Japanese version. First Gengar used Hypnosis, then Dream Eater
Then Zubat or was it Golbat was using Air Cutter ^^
Did anyone notice how Scott sounded like a stalker or something? O_o;;
The Great Butler - they had to change it since the movement of the mouths changed due to a new motto in the Japanese version.
Sadly, it's the only Pokémon episode guide I ever wrote and probably the last.

It was Golbat.Originally Posted by MidnightScott
Anyway, I forgot to mention something. Is CG going to be used for the 'badges' or whatever they were called when Ash starts winning them? I'd much rather prefer good drawings and animations like gym badges.
Nope. That's dub-only.Originally Posted by Kamex
That's also dub-only.Meowth said something like, "Somewhere sunny would be nice, thank you." Then they get assigned Antarctica. XD Was that in the original, too?
Speaking of dub-only, strange that 4Kids didn't edit those riceballs. Actually, they didn't even mention what they were. That would have been a hell of a lot better than making them sandwiches with Morrison. >_>
And I'm getting the impression that Team Rocket's gonna keep that new motto. Is that true? If so, then I should have payed more attention to it! It had great animation, that's for sure. Anyone have the lyrics (if you call the words to a motto lyrics) to it?
Magic? They didn't show how Ash and Brock got from Hoenn to Kanto either.Originally Posted by The Great Butler
One could logically assume they took a ship. Birch somehow drove there---his car was right in front of the Ketchum house.Originally Posted by CyberCubed
It's like driving from Hawaii to California.... O_o
Maybe there's a long underwater tunnel or something that connects the regions.
perhaps they have a ferry transport? although I've never heard of one that travels across oceans...

Hey, I've done that before!Originally Posted by The Great Butler
...Oh, wait. That was California Pizza Kitchen. Which isn't even that good, for that matter.
As already proved, Birch drives like a maniac. He could easily leap from rcok formations in the middle of the ocean. Or his jeep comes with a transforming motorboat feature.
Yeah, they need to give him Snorlax's voice.Originally Posted by jolteonjak
Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
XD Lol, imagine that.Originally Posted by S.Suikun
But Scott's voice fit his personality and role in the story, IMO. Maybe not his size, but... what do you expect?
LOL yeah, agree Scott's voice fits him perfecto ^^;Originally Posted by Kamex
Yes.Originally Posted by Kamex
Don't worry. They recycle the animation used in today's motto about a dozen more times.If so, then I should have payed more attention to it! It had great animation, that's for sure.
What? Great... that'll just spoil it. I guess they didn't give it so much work just to show it once. -_-Originally Posted by Dogasu
