After having finally bothered to watch this (what is it with me lately watching episodes late?), I gotta say I rather enjoyed it. There were some things that kind of irked me, but only in a comedic way. Hard to explain.
I guess Hunter J is ruthless to both humans and pokemon alike, after what she almost did to Ash.
After everything he's foiled from her, I don't really blame her.
The music seemed like a collection of all-star tracks from the movies prior to Sinnoh. Movie 5, 8, and 9 were all represented in this special.
Mostly from movie 8 and 9 though.
I'm just dis appointed that I'ave been pronouncing its name wrong the whole time.
How were you pronouncing him to begin with?
A few things I noticed: Apparently, Dawn has a blonde moment; sending Pachirisu against a group of Pokemon that almost all have ground type as a second type. Oy, thank goodness Pachirisu didn't attack. I would have mocked her then.
You know, that one scene where Ash is being crushed by Drapion? I knew it was big, but this thing was huge! I did find it funny that Ash kicks it in the eye, then falls into a conveniently placed trap door; one that disappears after activating. Neat.
It was weird that the animators used CG to animate J's ship. Sure, it's something very imposing, but I'm not sure if CG was best use. Oh wel.
Blastoise using Rain Dance, as that's it's field move in Ranger.
Team Rocket's balloon is surprisingly combustible; it lightly hits J's ship and explodes.
Apparently, J leaves only when she's paid. Doesn't matter if her client is in trouble, it don't concern her.
Riolu canceling Hyper Beam: not surprising, if Lucario could push it back, then Riolu's Aura Sphere should be just enough to do something similar.
Eh, that about does it.
