    What was so different about this episode from the original? Was it TRio's script? I think I might have caught a rhyme in there somewhere.

    Shneak this is a Nessa x Sonia stan account ✨

    Whoever voiced him in the B2W2 trailer should get the job.

    The Great Butler Hush, keep it down

    The entire appearance was full of the same junk from DP; I'm surprised the dub didn't add 'WE'RE BLASTING OFF AGAIN' too. Old TR contributes nothing to the show and hadn't since Johto at best.

    That's without mentioning Jimmy Zoppi's especially horrific voice acting in this episode.

    I did like how they lampshaded the return of the old motto by saying 'words of yore' ... but it's not even the original motto really. They didn't always tack on random phrases after 'prepare for trouble' and 'make it double.'

    Besides adding some words to the Kanto motto, didn't James actually say one line incorrectly? I thought I heard him say, "to unite all people within the nation" or something like that instead of "to unite all people within our nation." I know one line was said incorrectly. And like I said after the original episode aired, I wish they used the Kanto music as well.

    I liked the Old Motto. I guess it kinda makes me want to put "Double Trouble (Team Rocket)" on my SD Card. "Team Rocket's Rockin', talking trouble, double trouble, big trouble's gonna follow you! We're gonna capture Pikachu."

    Yeah, it's hard not to feel nostalgic listening to that motto and that "Double Trouble" song is awesome! :)

    I actually like this episode, it slows things down nicely in preparation for the N arc. Although I think some of the humor was lost from the original, people screaming and freaking out is just funnier in Japanese. But I always like an episode that shows the start of a trainer's journey.

    N is never going to not be awesome, but it will be disappointing if he gets the Virgil treatment.

    Before watching this, I already had the idea that Team Rocket was reverting back to their old ways. What I didn't pick up was that they reused their motto from the older days! That was quite a twist, and I'm liking the mix up between the older TR and the new TP. While the newer ones aren't so deathly threatening, Jessies/James/Meowth are pretty balanced.

    Nanette was hilarious; poor girl wouldn't stop worrying about anything. It did get a little annoying at the middle of the episode. But I'm glad she picked herself up, and gained some confidence.

    Good episode, loved it.

    N appearing at the end was pretty cool. Since I'm cosplaying as him for a con in this Summer, I got a better view at what his shoes should look like. Thanks, N!

    N cosplay should be fun :) I liked how TR were done too. Good balance.

    Tom Wayland?

    I thought Virgil's dub voice came across as obnoxious when he's supposed to be kind of calm and mature.

    Maybe it was just me.

    Okay, I'll grant the script writer that ONE TRio alliteration. I only hope that's one of few if any...

    Maybe it was just me, but he kind of sounded like Trip except with a bright personality.

    It's too bad Stuart couldn't voice Oak but I suppose it'd be inconsistent in this dub. Oh well...
  16. WaterShuriken

    WaterShuriken "I..I..Iron Tail, Pikachu."

    The dub wasn't too bad. Was Nanette also voiced by the same chick whom voices Iris? She sounded similar. I like how Ash was such a gentleman with her.

    Best part of this episode? TR's motto & Frillish
    Worst part of this episode? Everything else, especially Nanette. Children find this stuff funny?

    I found some of the things Nanette did funny lol. But I laugh at a lot of things.

    But this episode really proves how well Team Rocket can handle their Pokemon. All of Episode N is exactly how I feel TRio should be treated. And hearing the old motto in english was great.

    Fine episode. There were funny parts of it, yes. Nanette was annoying in the first half of the episode, though. Great to hear Team Rocket using their original motto, it's been a long time since they last did that motto.

    Nice to see Cheren being mentioned, too. And at the end with N, oh boy, next week is where it really starts.

    I knew his voiced sounds different. Kind of saddening, and I'm assuming he's got a new voice actor?
