    They'll be in the final BW episode, so was there really any need for them to get so much focus in the departure episode?

    Probably not, but I was trying to approach it from a writer's POV.

    I still don't see the complaining about Iris/Cilan's departure. Past departures weren't gone much better anyway.

    Sephora yes I'm back

    True. But you have to admit, this departure was hands down the most lacking. At least with previous departure episodes, there were emotional moments.

    Maybe so, but they really rushed through it this time as well as giving Team Rocket much more screentime that they actually needed.

    I honestly thought Brock's DP departure was the worst. He got what...a 30 second handshake at the end of the episode? Most of DP191 was about Dawn/Piplup leaving...Brock barely got anything.

    They were done much better.

    Not really, Tracey, DP Brock's, May/Max's weren't any better.

    So, in summary, they just happened to tag along with Ash just because he was there:
    - Ash was there when Brock had the encounter with his father
    - Ash was there when May got her Torchic
    - Ash was there when Dawn had that encounter with Team Rocket

    May and Dawn didn't know squat about Ash's accomplishments, he became their mentors DURING the journey, therefore, that wasn't a reason to tag along with him.

    Cilan actually wanted to stalk follow Ash and study his methods

    So much stock animation here, but it was nice to see charizard in battle.

    Am finally glad that Iris is gone at least for now never did care for her.

    Old comment but it was actually done way better with May and Max and yes even DP Brock. Ash and May had a final battle which ended with them receiving a memento of their friendship, Ash and Max bond with one another one last time with a promise to battle on day, and Brock finally has a solid dream to purse and gives him his blessing to Ash to keep following his dreams, and Ash does the same.

    So yeah, this episode was ****ing lame. Next time don't waste time on TR crap.

    It was a good episode. Just one more episode of the BW era and then it's time for Kalos.

    AuraChannelerChris "Hey, Deku, you looking up your name on Googl-?"

    Oh Arceus, they're gone for good now. One more episode and we're done with useless Unova.

    I found it very disgraceful of them to just ditch Kanto and kick it on its rear by traveling to Johto instead. Iris and Cilan will never be at Ash's hometown now.

    Please Kalos. Be like DP but better.

    I guess i am the only one who will truly miss Iris and Cilan lol, they were great characters in my opinion who really stood out from each other other than just being there. Finally Ask returns home to pallet next week

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    I never saw this episode in the original, but was Cilan's mention of hoenn used or was that a dub change?

    It's odd how people forget that the BW trio was initially very well received for having great chemistry again, something the DP trio lacked for 4 years.

    Yeah its too bad this saga wasn't the greatest, but at least this was the start of character chemistry returning that continued into XY.
  18. Everlasting

    Everlasting Everything stays.

    Just watched the dub episode, and yep, I was sad.
    Most part of the episode was boring. Team Rocket's attempt to steal Pokémon normally makes me smile but this time, I wanted them to go away... They didn't have their place in this episode as much as the normal ones.
    The only real part I liked of the episode was when they arrived in Kanto. Iris's goal, her wishes and Cilan's passion for fishing made me realized that they were right to go on and continue their dreams, just like Dawn and Brock.
    The train station scene was pretty sad. Although I was disapointed, emotion-wise. I think it was lacking. My eyes became wet only when the train door closed and when I saw Iris and Cilan go away. I loved them so much.
    Overall, the episode could have been done way better than that. It wasn't that good, honestly, and the BW trio deserved more.
    Goodbye, you two. Best wishes, and see you soon!

    He mentioned that he was going to take part in Mr. Briney's Fishing Tournament, held in Johto.

    This was a good episode. I just felt that the whole "parting ways" bit wasn't as strong as the other times Ash and his group went their separate ways.
