    Cresselia VS Darkrai!

    In Canalave City, while exploring and looking for the gym, Ash & Co. fall into the world of nightmares. It seems that Darkrai is nearby and lettling loose its dark powers. However, legends say Cresselia is also nearby and when she appears, a climatic battle between Cresselia & Darkrai is sure to take place...

    Well from the pics it looks like everyone in that place are having problem in sleeping because of the nightmares (don't know whether its because of Darkrai or the weird machine that TR has). And it looks like Team Rocket are selling fake Lunar Wings to everyone. This is as much as i understood from the pics till now. Will post more later.

    Edit:- After blasting of TR early in the episode the Ash & co go to sleep only to be scared by Darkrai's nightmare & everyone wakes up because of it & can't sleep at all. And i think that everyone then go to a cave sort of place (maybe the went to either New Moon Isles or the Full Moon Isles).

    Edit:- Well it seems Brock was the one who identified the Real & Fake Lunar Wings & also we see Dawn use Swinub (not initially for battle but to use its sences to snif out the Real Lunar Wing & to find its source) in this episode & it has evolved to Piloswine in this episode while trying to save Dawn & others & Cresselia from TR.

    Then we see Darkrai appearing & i think bith Cresselia & Darkrai have a fight (in front of Ash & Co & Jenny). And i think the episode ends here after the fight. This episode Oak asked question about Flygon.

    This should have been titled 'Cliché Team Rocket Plot! Swinub evolves?!' , because for an episode called 'Cresselia vs. Darkrai', there sure wasn't much Cresselia vs. Darkrai in it. Of course, two tackles into one another before Cresselia rises up and....screams is incredible no matter which way you slice it, but I'm Gravy. I'm a rebel, and I'm not going to let the opinions of the masses sway ME!
    This was rather lame.

    Swinub evolved in the most generic way possible and we see Hikari still has the Lunar Wing she obtained in the 10th movie, but that was pretty much it.

    It makes me want to buy platinum though.

    So much for the BS people say about the movies being in a different "reality" then eh? :p

    Blackjack Gabbiani Clearly we're great!

    So wait...that means Bogie sold her a *real* Lunar Wing then? He has legendary artifacts and sells them to just about anyone?

    Now my theory about him just got a hell of a lot weirder.

    OK, so how was it, guys? I don't mind spoilers, so bleh. I know Swinub evolved, but I heard about one of the most funny mistakes they'd ever do - Mamoswine in the opening instead of Piloswine. :p How was it overall? And from all the complains I see... :D

    Oh, and Blackjack Gabbiani - Are you trying to imply that the guy selling the Lunar Wing is Tabitha form the manga? Or is it just me?

    Well here is a summary of the episode by "PKMN_Veteran" of Bulbagarden Forums,

    Blackjack Gabbiani Clearly we're great!

    Given that the first time we see him, he's working for an ex-Magma? Yes.
  11. FINALLY.
    For once, my odd memory of remembering extremely meaningless plot points comes in useful. I mentioned that a few times and it was just glanced off...but oh, it was mentioned.
    Yes, I have issues with letting things go.

    Hejiru Rev up those fryers

    Finally, we see the movies cross over into canon-land. Dawn still has the Lunar Wing she obtained in Alamos town in movie 10.

    Did they mention anything about seeing Darkrai before in Alamos Town? Is it the same Darkrai? Because it seems kinda odd that in movie 10, he was a good guy, and now he's portrayed as ab "bad guy".

    csisps_26 Roark <3

    Oh yes. He was working for Butler... :p I know what you mean, in terms of the similarity we see. Resemblance, resemblance.

    I'm surprised though, Dawn still has her Lunar Wing. Well, that goes to show that there is a connection between movies & the anime besides the Mewtwo plot.
    How was the whole episode? Hm?

    Lucario At Service, you do notice that PKMN_Veteran did that silly mistake, right? :D I think PKMN_Veteran was suppose to write Junsa, not Jun. Unless PKMN_Veteran meant a short form, then... that's a different case.

    Blackjack Gabbiani Clearly we're great!

    There's always been a connection between the show and the movies. Why are you acting like this is something new? I think the only one that wasn't referenced in the main series somehow was the third one.

    ^ Blackjack_Gabbiani - I'm not. Just a statement. -_-".

    So, how, exactly, was the battle between Cresselia & Darkrai? It looked horrible from the preview. So... you know...

    Perhaps Serebii could change the Piloswine Picture in Dawns bio to a decent one now?

    Irene Rather bizarre

    Is it CONFIRMED the Lunar Wing Dawn has is the same she obtained in the 10th movie...? After all, they all get nightmares anyway that night. While watching the thing, I was under the impression she just had got it in the same place as everyone else (Team Rocket) but that's me and my knowledge of Japanese language (zero)... >.>

    As much as I love the 10th movie, this episode better not being related to it at all. Specially because this Darkrai is just randomly retarded. And of course they need to use the PokéDex to check what Pokémon it is.
  18. I like the Piloswine on Dawn one with her having that huge face full of excitement/happiness. ;) Haha I'm terrible.

    Anyways, how long was the battle between the great Moon Turky and our Shadowy Friend?

    You know the trailer?
    ... there wasn't much more than that. I think Darkrai appeared for only like one minute or something.

    Electivirus Not really, no.

    Dissappointing. I just got Groudon vs Kyogre vibes again. -_-
