Oh yeah, this is the point in this saga where TR is trying to catch Meloetta and Meloetta travels with the groups isn't it?
I say this because I've actually seen quite a bit of this particular story arc before.
Cool so Ash's group had finally arrived at Virbank city and we got to see Pokestar Studios hee hee. I liked how Cilan played the villain in Luke's film, plus Meloetta debuting was neat. I'm glad Luke's film won.
I initially thought that this episode was gonna turn out horrible, but the whole movie making bit and seeing the finished product completely changed my mind. It's too bad that Luke's Zorua hadn't evolved, though. :/
The film version of Iris was about as wooden as any performance ever. Was that obvious in the Japanese version or an implied part of the character, because she lacked any and all enthusiasm during the movie parts.
So here we saw the anime debut of Tachiwaki City and Pokewood, as well as the return of Luke the filmmaker. I appreciated seeing Zorua again, and I was pleased that Bel wasn't involved here since she'd waste half of the episode chasing after Zorua.
The first half of the episode was slow and nothing of importance went on until the second part.. Cilan and Luke were bonding over their love for Pokemon movies was cute and we got to see the Meloetta that will be travelling with Ash and co.
Pokestar studios deserved a better episode but seeing Luke return to film his movies was a good thing. Black and White had amazing recurrent characters and Luke was one of the better ones to see again.
