i like the episode, Combusken attacks looked so cool ^_^
I couldn't think of a better thread to bring this up in, and it seemed to silly to make another thread for it, but I find it an odd inconsistency with the show that there doesn't seem to be a fixed rule about using objects in the appeal portion. Surely the Pokemon should solely be demonstrating its own powers? Or if objects are allowed, shouldn't it be a requirement? It seems trainers who use objects have an unfair advantage.
Also, Bulba the Great, feels kind of odd rewatching these episodes now that you're older, isn't it? You have the memories from when you were younger but you see them in a different light now that you've aged so many years since you last watched them.
It's so bizarre. But it's also absolutely wonderful. I can be cynical, but nothing will ruin the fond memories I have of growing up a part of the Advanced Generation. Especially knowing where the anime's headed from here...it's like fondly going back and re-reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Once upon a time, that was the latest book available. Now it's the midway point, in many ways the turning point of the series.
Probably also because its the last saga 4kids dubbed. Just curious, what are you going to do when you get up to Battle Frontier?
Likely continue through D/P. I can't say in full honesty that I agree with the voice cast change, and I certainly remember when Ms. Blaustein joined the message boards after the switch, and how much I fought to have 4Kids come back. But I don't loathe PUSA and I would like to find out what happened in the black hole of my memory that is D/P.
