    Tactics Theatrics!

    At the Battle Dome, Ash meets the Leader, Tucker. Not long after meeting Tucker Ash challenges him to a battle for the Tactics Symbol. It's a 2 VS 2 Match. Ash's Corphish & Swellow VS Tucker's Arcanine and Swampert. Will Ash be able to get his 3rd Froniter Symbol or will he wash out?

    Yes, I really want to know! (sarcasm) To be honest, I would expect Ash to lose this if we didn't already know the answer to this loverly question.

    Samayowa you amaze me.

    Even if it was spoiled the battle itself is what I'm looking forward to...too bad it'll be forever before this episode gets to the U.S. T.T

    Seen the episode. Some bits about this.

    I think this is the first episode to feature 7th movie music.

    Tucker is included in the intro credits. For a guy dressed like that, he has a deep voice, not to mention lots of adoring fangirls.

    Animation is really good in this episode.

    Team Rocket does not try to steal any Pokemon, therefore do not interrupt the match. Instead, they are serving snack for the many viewers of the match ala their Hoenn League job.

    There were references to Ash's participation in the Kanto, Orange, Johto and Hoenn leagues.

    References?. What kind of references?.
     
  9. I've seen the pics and it looks jaw dropping.Scott appears and he looks cuter than usual. He's getting interviewed along with the rest of the gang. The reference that golden darkness meant was that on the giant screen it showed the different stadiums that Ash has fought in

    Should have shown Orange Island Drake in my opinion. No one cares about the damned Stadiums.

    Wow, actual continuity!

    I'm so glad Ash's past accomplishments were finally stated. It seems to me like the Pokemon league officials forget all about Ash's victories.

    I mean he HAS won the Orange league, come in top 16 in Kanto, and Top 8 in Johto and Hoenn. Compared to the 200 trainers that enter each league and never make it past the preliminaries, it's nice to see Ash finally recognized.

    Now if only Ash could get some popularity, so many people still don't even recognize him and think he's a nobody.

    skarmachild Cheer up.

    Damn I really need to see some Frontier Episodes...

    Sounds great, especially when Team Rocket DON'T interupt, thats what Team Rocket should be doing, just randomly going around doing a little filler.
     
  14. Another thing TR went through the entire episode without blasting off. The part that looks interesting from what I saw from the pictures is the part where both corphish and swellow are trapped in the vortex. Looks uber cool

    i kno they didn't blast off..i was thinking at the end after Ash won...all of a sudden they would have do attempt of stealing..lol

    oh well..it was a great battle...but sad...taht Ash had to WIN...seriously..Swellow and Corpish did what like 1 - 3 hits...and the rest failed..lol...

    Ok just saw the episode and it was great. The animation and the music were really nice. Corphish and Swellow were great. The only thing that i hated is that Scott,brock,may and max were shown to much explaining everything or something like that. They always do that but this time was just to much. I mean during the battle scott was talking about tactics or something and he gave a freaking 1 to 2 min speech.lol.

    You seem to say it as if it's a bad thing... of course he was going to conquer the Battle Dome, just as he will with the remaining Frontier Brains.

    Wow... this had to be the best battle since Keade. The animation was great, the action was engaging, and of course Heigani and Oosubame pwn as usual. Seeing them in a double battle together was awesome beyond words.

    They really didn't waste any time either - there was only about five minutes before the battle started and it lasted until nearly the end. This episode was also a perfect example of how the Rocket-dan can be in an important episode without taking away from the main plot or interrupting the action. They just did their food vending thing and watched from the stands. And I thought it was funny when they were eating the food that they were supposed to be selling. XD

    There was some great music in this one as well. I particularly liked the old school pieces they used, though the movie music they threw in there was nice too. It really added a lot of suspense.

    And on a final note, Hiisu didn't act as flamboyant as I expected, but I suppose with that outfit you wouldn't need to.
