Sarah's Ash was actually pretty good in this one. Yeah, I know, no emotion, but at least it resembled Taylor somewhat for what it's worth.
Bill Rogers was simply brilliant as Tucker. It's probably my favorite role that he's done on Pokémon, too. He was also really good as Brock, too.
Not even going to start on why I HATED Kayzie's Max and Michele's May. Simply terrible in this one.
Max: I'm an old lady. You can tell I am. So cool!
May: Oh, I'll totally grab and tear off your pants, and do whatever you want me to do *giggles*. You ready, big boy? (Her mouth proceeds to get closer and closer...AAAHHH! What am I saying?).
Seriously, are they even TRYING to do a good job in this one? -_-
Scott sounded better than usual, and reminded me more of Frank Frankson. Yet, he gives off that creepy paedophilic tone moreso than Frank ever did. :/
Team Rocket sounds awesome though. Very similar to the 4Kids version, IMO.
Ash: "I guess the best defense is a strong offense...yeah" (The apathy in which this line was delivered definitely is notable)
Scott: "Remember at the press conference when Ash said the best offense is a good defense"
Way to go, TPCi. Showing us right off the bat you are indeed no different from 4Kids with stuff like this.
What was that about TPCi being so much better than 4Kids with accuracy? Uh-huh, right. Go back to your anti-4Kids fantasy land, haters.
Despite how bad May and Max sounded, everyone else's work overshadowed their poor performances, so it came out a good episode for the dub to me.
