Pretty much more or less that, with "Stop complaining: ESS is worse anyway" being the comment in full. Exactly right on all accounts.
Again, I agree: it's all about THE BATTLEZ being TEH COOLEST and the STRENGTH OF THE POKEEEMONZ that constitutes good writing to the DP and XY Anime fans, IMO.
"If Pikachu becomes a Raichu, I might be able to win that badge. On the other hand, to make it evolve just to fight...I would be just like Surge...Pikachu, what do you want to do? I really wanna beat that Surge, but I also don't want to force you to evolve if you'd be happier staying the way you are now."
--> Now that is good writing and gave OS Ash the kind of depth of character his future incarnations have all lacked, IMO.
Bonnie's English dub voice makes me want to punch her in the face, though, so thankfully I watched the subbed version and Eureka's seiyu is a lot better than whatever the heck Alyson has been trying with Bonnie, IMO. xD.
Also, Carter's script writing for her sucks too, apparently.
Bonnie @ TR in the English dub: "You guys are such annoying bad people!"
IKR? She's horrible so far. -_-
Ash is OK, Clemont is great, and Bonnie is slightly poor to me. TR and Serena just...go jump off a _liff and go di_. -_-
That's saying something, huh?
O_O...I didn't mean...well, if anyone on the current VA cast gave me that idea, it was Knotz as May.
It really sounds badass, but it isn't!
Ah, I see: pretty much how she will be for the next 8 episodes, too. Also, be warned, she is rather horn_ for Ash to say the least.
Horrific, right? -_-
Yup: you bet. I've also come up with Natosucky as well as Z Pingas America (from Z Pang America).
Yup-- she sucks, huh?
I know-- only DP Rocket is their equal or worse!
Crapcart and Z Pingas America went full blast with giving Ash dumb lines that dub episode, IIRC. Also, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" from Brandon.
