    I was wondering, since Lance has only seen Ash once way back in Johto, how'd he recognise him after such a long time? always wondered that...

    I really want to see this episode, evil Pikachu is a good thing too.

    True, he only saw Ash once, but it's not like he just met him briefly. They had an adventure together, and Ash no doubt made an impression on Lance with his determination, yadda yadda yadda...it's not that hard to remember people, y'know, especially when you've had a memorable experience (such as foiling a large-scale Team Rocket scheme) with them.

    True, I was just wondering because although it was a huge adventure (and I missed those two episodes within a couple of weeks, I was not happy about it) I always thought that since Lance is a 'g-man' in the dub version, that he'd have other things that were important to him that to remember a boy and his Pikachu :)

    So Lance was undercover for TM, my question when I read the synopsis (which was really cool I might add) is if Ash was forced into the helicopter, how'd Lance reach him so fast?

    That's easy. Lance was among the TM members who went into the helicopter with Ash.

    He was? ooops probably missed that one.

    Going back to the first time Lance saw Ash, he was wearing the other outfit, and so wouldn't it have been a while before Lance would recognise him? unless of course we're going by Pikachu, because who can not recognise Ash without Pikachu :)

    But those aside, I wanna see this episode!

    I'll root for Kyogre as the winner of the battle, while Mommy, my annoying partner roots for Groudon. Let's see who's right.

    Okay I know I have to get over my 'interest' in Lance but these questions keep popping into my head constantly that seem to need to know answers (I have no idea why).

    One of them is when Lance saw Ash and his friends did we end up hearing his reaction or seeing it? if so have any idea what he said?

    What was Lance's reaction when he saw that Harland/Tabitha (whatever the man's name is :)) trapped Ash and Pikachu? (if there wasn't one don't worry)

    I'm sure there's more but they seemed more important :D

    Dub title: Hopefully, they'll avoid any puns this time!

    Clash of the Titans! (or anything to that effect)

    Update: Due to suggestive content, I suggest that this episode and the one after will probably be delayed due to Hurricane Katrina. Do you think this will be the case?

  17. Umm... like what? XD =o

    I can't wait to see the dubbed version of this episode...
  18. 'Gaining Groundon'? Jezz, ya'd think such a story-heavy episode would have a better name than that. Who comes up with these lousey names? 9_9

    What a shitty dub title.

    That's because in the Groudon vs Kyogre episodes, Pikachu falls under:

    The Absolute Power Corruption Principle (Althena Rule)
    If a good guy is turned to the side of evil, they will suddenly find a new inner strength that will enable them to wipe out your whole party with a wave of their hand.

    But don't worry. After Pikachu got the orb out of him, he fell under:

    The Law of NPC Relativity (Magus Rule)
    Characters can accomplish superhuman physical feats, defeat enemies with one hand tied behind their back and use incredible abilities -- until they join or rejoin your party and you can control them. Then these wonderful powers all vanish, along with most of their hit points.
