    Ah, so Max doesn't believe Harley? Good to see one of the twerps has a brain. It always struck me as weird that May's best friends were so nonchalant about letting him hang around with her in the Grand Festival. I know they're notoriously unsuspicious, especially whenever a disguised Team Rocket are involved, but really.

    Well we all know Ash is a bit too naive, but I'm really surprised about Brock.

    It's almost out of character for him. Brock is basically the "older brother" of the entire group, and for him not to be even be a little bit suspicious is just poor writing.

    Why the writers make Ash and Brock so "indifferent" to May's contest opponents is beyond me.

    I was soooo proud of Masato. And soooo disappointed in the others. I mean, yeah, Joi is reliable and all that, but she doesn't know Harley the way they do...

    Anyone care to translate the reason Harley is helping there? My limited Japanese skills picked up on Noctus-chan being helped by Joi, and Harley staying to help her until the contest. Or something like that. =/

    Heh, the nickname "Kamo-chan" is back. <3 But why exactly was it "Ariados" and not "Ariados-chan"? Is Ariados a brand new pokemon? If he's not, it's awfully strange that he doesn't get the -chan the others do... *confuzelled*

    Of course, they all got suspicious at the end of the episode, when everyone was standing in front of the counter and was told that everything Harley told them about the registration was wrong.

    Max said, "So he tricked us again." and Brock responded something like, "I never expected him to take it this far." So the whole trick thing seems to be over...for now.

    That's actually a good contest look for Jessie. I'm hoping she keeps it for the next episode, at least. I'm also hoping Lilian is replacing Vivian permanently. Not only does she have much more personality, but she's much cuter. ^_^ Guess that throws my theory about all the Vivians being part of a chain of twin sisters down the drain, though.
    Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!

    Jessie looks awful in those glasses. She needs to stop putting on those wacky things when she enters a contest.

    Can't she enter as a normal coordinator? If she's fighting fair and square, there's nothing Ash/May or the others could do to stop her.

    You're forgetting that Torkoal already knew Overheat when Ash caught it. It just depends on the Pokemon.

    ...That one I DID forget about x.x' Which is kinda funny since in the last episode I saw I saw Lombre use Razor Leaf and was thinking "...what the?" So Brock's Lombre/Ludicolo has two egg moves...wonder if his Mudkip knows anything besides Water Gun then...

    ...I think I'm going off topic too x.x Whoops...

    Harley is playing them like a bad song. (Loved the Brock impression though.)

    Please let Jessie's haircut stay. It's looks so much better than the comet.

    Some people don't think it's funny that Exit 69 gets off on Big Beaver.

    Wow, you're not kidding, are you? ... I'd love to know how anyone can think Harley's a girl... Even with only screenshots, does the lack of breasts not tip anyone off?

    That's also the first time I've heard this contest looks boring... Oh wait, you're obviously a Natsume fanboy. My mistake. Plus, you still think Ghost belonged to Satoshi... Poor thing.

    Anyways, I do agree that Musashi's haircut is uber-spiffish. <3 If it goes away, I won't be devestated of course... *goes back to making screenshots*

    I'll give it to him that he thought Harley was a girl. I mean come on, how many guys do you know wear a white outfit with an exposed womanly stomach like that?

    this episode seems quite interesting, Jessie's new do' is pretty cool... though I'll miss that comet as well...

    and maybe Harley has turned over a new leaf perhaps? is he really up to something as most people are claiming?

    Lilian's pretty cool as well, though, if SHE's participating, who's going to be the announcer?

    I thought he was a girl too, judging by pictures.
    By the way don't you guys think it's anoying how much attention May is getting for her contests.
    Ash has competed in so much tournaments and he doesn't get that much attention.

    Rest assured, Harley hasn't turned over a new leaf. Just watching the episode confirms that. He did try to keep her out of the contest afterall.

    In anime? A lot. You're talking to a girl who watches every yaoi/shounen ai title she can get her hands on. I've seen a ton of feminine looking guys. ^.~

    Anyways, I did my own screenshots of Harley as promised (113 in all), and they're up here: http://photobucket.com/albums/b188/coordinators8/

    What do you mean exactly? Contests have trainers interacting with each other, thus there is more room for character development.

    In Ash's story, Ash doesn't actually face other trainers in "league style battles" until the league themselves. When he faces the Gym leaders, regular trainers usually aren't around.

    Which is why the contests have always been better than Ash's GYM battles in Hoenn. And from the looks of things, the Kanto contests will be more exciting than Ash's Frontier Brain battles as well.
