Can anyone tell who Roxie's VA is?

Whoa Brina Palenica is that you? Maybe it is just me waking up early and being out of it but thought I kinda heard her

Seeing the badge case during the episode made me wonder about if it always did not shown badge images like it would in the game. I checked Serebii's images for Minccino-Neat & Tidy when Ash got it from Bianca, and you can clearly see that the last slot was for the Legend Badge and all sections were built for each badge's shape. Just thought it was a neat thing I found out. ^^

Also, not really important, but didn't early images of Roxie's koffing have eyelashes? I thought so, but can't find them now if there were.

It's not impossile even in games to lose to an unevolved pokémon.

Personally, it stinks we have to wait another week. It was very entertaining I kinda wish it was an hour long special or something.

Well, this was a bad episode. Unfezant and Boldore were creamed by a Koffing. I still think it should have just been 3v3.
at least the dub clarified why it went down as 6 vs 3, perhaps if Ash had kept his mouth shut, it would've been three on three, but because he mentioned that by beating her he was going to earn his eigth badge, she altered the rules to see if his team was ready for the unova league and see how strong his team was herself.

and as we all know the gym leaders rules must be obeyed, if you don't like it you leave.

Dunno who Roxie's Voice Actor is, but the other guitar girl sounded like Monica Rial.

They are really getting more diverse with the VA's these days.

I was especting Roxie's voice to sound like the one in the game. I liked that a kanto pokemon got to be on "who's that pokemon", especilly after a long time. Even if ash gets the acid badge, i hope he still challenges other gym leaders

James would've been reduced to tears to see a Koffing curbstomping two evolved Pokemon in a row.



I see what you did there.
Not just any evolved pokémon, but two of "the twerp's" fully evolved pokémon

Also, does anyone else love how Roxie's battle cry is "BANG-ZOOM" ?

Lol, wasn't intentional, but works. XD

Unless Ash said 'Who's that Pokémon?' while scanning Koffing, I don't see a problem with him scanning Koffing.

New Pokedexes always have some new data and Ash uses his Pokedex even when he recognizes a Pokemon.

Fine episode, though Ash did have a bad start. Roxie is pretty cool, though. It's awesome how Roxie wanted to test Ash before the Unova League.

I enjoyed the episode. I'm glad that Ash suggested a 3 on 3 battle, it give me a reason to support him despite his advantage. Koffing was great to watch in battle, as was Leavanny.

Still the concept of Roxie being at a 6 on 3 disadvantage slightly annoyed me. If she's so good that she's beating challengers' full teams without losing a pokemon then she should be taking on the elite four, as the whole point of her being at a disadvantage is clearly to show how powerful her pokemon are and how skillful a trainer she is.
