    I thought this episode was superior to the previous Pokeringer, when it was Swellow, basically one hit and Ash won. At least in this one Staraptor got to battle a bit before winning.

    I absolutely love it, the battle between Ash and Paul is by far the best match between them, even if it wasn't a technical match.

    Shame James lost so early, but I blame Yanmega for that, and the fact Skiploom basically owns the wind, and wouldn't get as affected. James took the loss better than last time, although he went crazy. I think James talent as a Pokeringer are highly exaggerated. I think he can beat some weak trainers but I think that's about it.

    Since Ash did beat Paul, I think its obvious Ash is prodigy, even if he could care less about the weather and stuff. Shame only James, Paul, and Ash entered.

    And Staraptor that thing is huge, and close-combating Honchkrow to the the face was awesome. Not to mention the way the wind blew it's crest like it was emo, was just awesome.

    Gosh I waited forever for this episode to air. I watched it live on the program mentioned below and the picture quality was actually higher than it is on youtube but the sound quality sucked so I couldn't hear too much Japanese to decipher.

    So Shinji didn't care about the lost. That's great.

    MOAR screenshots where did you get those so early can you really screencap from keyhole tv


    I hope we don't lose MukuBird's personality in MukuHawk.
    Just in case we did, I dedicated my avatar, status and part of my signature to the adorable birdie.

    Thanks for this, i actually thought he'd release it for losing to Staraptor, but he must think it's still worth keeping.

    when you look it ash is actually taller then staraptor but because of the hair that comes over staraptor's head, staraptor's taller.

    Ash's staraptor looks fierce but i wish it had a physical feature that makes it stand out. i was not expecting him to win but I'm sure glad he did. Watch out Paul.

    Is it really bigger than Honchkrow as it seems from the pics above?

    fishyfool And a nice chianti

    So, it's true. The Muku.BIRD is officially dead.

    I weep for the incarnation of our new emo lord.

    Man this is a great episode. his is first time Ash officially beat Paul too. I want to look at Paul's face immediately after the loss. Anyway what as the prize for winning. Last time, Ash was made a citizen of the town the competition was held in. I guess its the same this time too, but I hope not.

    I want to see a picture of Honchkrow getting pwned in the face, and of Staraptor's emo thing.
    If Staraptor breaks the anime laws of being a big flying type owned by Ash, I'll kill them before the anime cops come and fire it.
    I was so bored of Staravia never doing anything. I just called it 'The Bird', but now I can call it 'Staravia' until this episode's dub airs.

    Ash won a trophy, a plaque and some food (Dawn's Mamoswine hilariously ate all of it in one Tasmanian devil gulp)

    I'm looking forward to seeing this battle later on when the episode is more widely available, but I'm still wondering if it was ever explained why Paul entered the contest in the first place and/or if he's came and left Snowpoint City already.

    I don't speak Japanese so someone will have to clarify (or confirm). But considering Dawn's response to what Brock said "Donkarasu" or "Honchkrow" makes me think that the Paul was there because he was trying to power up his Honchkrow against all the other flying types. Paul was mostly quiet though, it almost seemed like Paul didn't even know Ash was competing, since Paul never seemed to acknowledge Ash's presence ( Paul mostly ignored him).

    So I'm going with, "To power up his Honchkrow" for 300 points.
