Well this is what i posted on the specultaion thread of this episode, i didn't feel like re-writing it so i just copied it here.

Ok this is what i understood from the pics,

Reiji took all of them to show the park were the meteorites are. After there visit the gang is shown to be in the Pokemon Center (Reiji is no longer with them). During that time TG has appeared in the park & used the object to make the meteorites glow & after that Saturn talks to someone on the phone starts to take the meteorites. TR comes to meddle into there plans. During this time the group is talking to Nurse Joy about something, then they see the light from the meteorite (even Maylene from her gym sees it & also Reiji see them). After that they all go to the park & form thats on i don't get what happens from the pics. Also Saturn's Toxicroak knows Dark Pulse.

Here are some pics of the episode,


Well i have added two more pics in here. First one is because someone on the other thread didn't believe that Toxicroak used Dark Pulse & the other for the fans of Saturn.

Thanks, Lucario At Service. Do you have information on how Croagunk and Toxicroak battled?

Well i can't say anything about that because the site from which i got those pics didn't have any new pics related to Croagunk & Toxicroak battle. The only new one is the first pic posted above. But i will tell about it as soon as i see the episode (if someone else doesn't beat me in that & post about it before me).

Edit:- Also the reason why i posted the 4th pick is because many people were getting a bit confused about Toxicroak's height. Well from that pic we can say that it is nearly 6'00" feet tall which is a bit more than what height it has in game.

Also can anyone confrim whether the Toxicroak is Shiny or not.

I'm wondering how that Croagunk / Toxicroak fight ended up.


Izit cuz I is black?
Wow, that's a big Toxicroak! Cool to see Maylene get one more bite of the apple in this episode, giving her a nice four-episode run like those before her.

Well, i have only now seen just the 10 min of the episode before it got blocked & i have to reload it again from the starting.

Ok i want to confrim that the building which we saw earlier (at the start of DP066) with all those dishes is Team Galactic's Veilstone headquaters.

Also it seems that the Nurse Joy of the pokemon center has told Ash about the next gym leader being water type & also that by the looks of it we might actually see Dawn participate in a contest soon.

Interesting ep, but there's one thing that bothers me: why was Jessie being literally big headed? It's kinda similar to the Combee episode.


Too old for your rubbish..
Disappointing episode...The Tokicroak/Croagunk battle wasn't too great, and Paul was only shown on a screen...:(
The most interesting part in this ep is the Pikachu/Electabuzz relation. Seems like the writers want to develop it even more.


Thank you, SPPf! :)
Anybody who thinks this episode has crappy animation needs to rewatch the Swinub and Hippowdon episodes.

This was an alright episode for the gang's first actual encounter with Team Galactic. Not much battling, but I don't remember the first Aqua/Magma episodes having much fighting, either. The worst part of the episode is that it ended the 70-episode streak of not featuring Munchlax. But it looked like it was dying, so I forgive them. I'm glad they chose to give Maylene and Reiji one final send-off, giving them 4 and 3 episodes, respectively. Still no Galactic battle BGM, though, which makes me wonder if we'll ever hear it at all.

Has no one heard the cold opening of Mutiny in the Bounty?

Toxicroak and Crogunk are my favorite D&P pokemon. it makes me wonder if Brocks Crogunk will evolve. it would be get and bad for him. That poision jab is already deadly , making it stronger might kill Brock!;454;;453;

Unless they brought it out for the dub version, I swear that's the DP Gym battle theme that's used. I have that ep (the raw) on my comp, even.
