    Azelf, Uxie & Mesprit!

    After having a dream where Azelf, Uxie & Mesprit call out to them, Ash & Co. quickly discover that the legendary Pokémon are under attack by none other than Team Galactic. With Team Galactic recruiting Hunter J to assist in the capture, it seems certain that they will be captured. Will Ash & Co. be able to protect them?

    Good episode. I loved to see how Uxie, Azelf and Mesprit were fighting against J.

    Just saw the ep


    Is the only word

    It starts off with the dream...........i didn't know it was dream and was like did i miss something?? lol
    The dream pretty basic......foreshadows what's gonna happen to the fairies

    Then it takes off

    We see Hunter J in the sky and she drops something, like a bomb which serves the purpose of drawing Azelf out like a magnet.

    Then it jumps to Gary on the ground (I loved this bit just because gary was back)
    He calls in to Pro Birch obviously working with him to stop J
    He has umbreon by his side and calls out Electivire to attack J's helicarrier i suppose
    A dark pulse comes out of no where at Gary
    Electivire intercepts and takes the hit and is weakened

    Toxicroak and Saturn appear
    They exchange chit chat
    Battle ensues with Gary, sadly :(:(:(:(, getting his you know what handed to him by Saturn................You would think Gary would be strong enough to take him down

    The machine then shines, whirpool in the lake forms with a small blue light coming out
    Azelf appears.............I must say that machine was pretty cool
    Azelf attacks J, could be saturn can't remember, who is riding Salamence (dirty minds)....pretty strong attack i must say
    After a brief battle gets captured

    Ash back in the poke centre goes wild with a headache at this
    They run outside leaving for the lake......after Uxie and Mesprit teleport
    Cynthia pulls up in her truck and tells them to get in
    Her grandmother is contacted..............just though i'd mention that

    At the other two lakes, Uxie and Mesprit appear, i think there was Galactic grunts there bu i'm not too sure
    They teleport away
    As Saturn picks up the frozen Azelf the other 2 pixies/Fairies whatever you wanna call them appear at the lake
    They see Azelf frozen and get angry
    Just as they are about to attack the same way Azelf did, Jupitar and Mars appear with Purugly and Skuntank and attack
    The fairies dodge and get into a brief battle with some Golbat who the girls control

    J and salamence then appear in front of them
    The two fairies shoot some lighning kind of thing into the sky which doesn nothing.....yet
    Then J shotos Mesprit and freezes it
    Uxie surprised hits j, not salamence....J, with a full on attack but she shrugs it off and freezes it too

    Gary too weak to do anything
    J gives TG the remaining two fairies
    As J is leaving in the helicarrier the lightning from earlier hits the ship
    It goes down down down into the whirlpool from earlier and it sinks...with her and the crew in it
    TG then leave in their copter as Gary falls to the ground downtrodden........i felt sad for the once great trainer at how pitiful he looked here like a baby sulking

    Now for Team Rocket............i was wondering where they were today
    They are flying in their ballon with wobbufett lokking around for something or someone
    They then spot looker....also wondering where he was.....and land
    They seem delighted to see him.....they must like him
    They are outside the TG base by the way
    They chat and then TR costume change into TG grunts
    Looker smiles at this...............When i saw this i really got the thought of how good a team they would make as they both love being in disguise

    Nearly finished now ;);)

    In the TG base the 3 fairies are in tubes of some wet stuff prob water
    Pluto/Charon then activates that red crystal we saw last episode and places one on each of the fairies head's where their own crystals are
    They go all evil looking or possed

    Now for one of the most weirdest thing i've seen in pokemon
    Their everyone looked shocked
    Charon laughs and says something
    The 3 commanders are in the centre of the room
    Pikachu and piplup with Ash and Dawn
    Croagunk releases itself from it's pokeball
    Saturn releases toxicroak who smirks at croagunk

    Cyrus stops a fight from happening.....damn
    Big long talk about real important stuff WHICH I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND BECAUSE I DON'T SPEAK JAPANES ARGHHHH!!!

    Golbat are released and so are Skuntank and Purugly

    EPIC smack talk between Cyrus and Ash and some real good animation represnting intensity...don't ask me how it just feels that way lol
    Cyrus orders an attack

    Here we go!!!!

    Golbat surround the gang Pikachu and Piplup use a thunderbolt/Bubblebeam combo to release the fairies from their galss
    Croakunk and toxicroak charge towards each other



    I';; contiunue this.....prob not as detailed...in the dialga and palakia ep thread

    PsYcOjOhNnY The Great Stickman!

    oh man, what an episode already. J was really effective with catching the pixies....and yeah her getting hit twice? Crazy, and then the part im confused about is Her ship crashing, glass breaking, all of them inside....and as its sinking we see her glasses float away.......Implied Death maybe? Between that and the flopping magicarp....i was very surprised but pleasantly surprised ha ha
  5. Almighty Zard

    Almighty Zard He has returned.

    my thoughts on the first part.

    1.it's kinda sad to see someone of Gary's caliber fall down from grace, I mean sure i know Toxicroak is strong, but you'd think Gary's pokemon could handle it(especially since in the following episode Brock's Croagunk OHKO's the bloody thing.), seems to me his reserch work has really effected his training with his pokemon, and it shows big time, maybe he needs to go back to training for a bit cause he sure seemed mad he couldn't protect the pixies.

    2.so the characters established mind links with the pixies? Geez and I thought Ash's aura thing way back when was crazy.

    3.hopefully hunter J won't come back from that, seriously i've been waiting a long time to see her character put out to pasture (of course not going to the extreme of "killing" her, but perhaps she deserved this considering all the harm she's caused since she appeared.) but like others have been saying hopefully she don't come back now.

    Overall I thought the episode was intresting, and the second part makes it even better, time to go review that part now.
  6. Mythic Mist

    Mythic Mist Indecent Exposure

    Oh my frickin GOD that was epic. Yeah the Pixie capturing was a little too rushed and while it was AWESOME to see Gary again he hardly did anythign. But the part I liked the most was...well...UXIE AND MESPRIT KILLED J!!! Omg. Dude. the music playing when J's ship crashed into the ocean was intense and even more so when you see the windows in her ship crack and then water surges in followed by that intense explosion and the sounds of her henchmen screaming. OH MAN. AWESOME. And then the scene at the headquarters. That was intense too. @_@

    Overall I loved this episode. Only disappointed by the easy capture of the pixies and not enough J, even though her ship crashing and exploding was intense. :D

    The three pixies fighting J was unexpected but it was epic.

    As for the whole J dying thing, it's a little sad. I didn't think she'd go down like that.

    This was just freakin brilliant, one of my top favorite Pokemon episodes. One of my favorite parts of the episode was the talk between Cyrus and Ash. That was awesome. Over all yah, loved it.

    ....J got pwned by Future Sight. Damn ShoPro, why?!

    Future Sight... ouch. That's all. It was amusing how J could take those blows and respond so quickly. That is one powerful woman. Best character, IMO. No, she's not dead.

    ShoPro used two episodes to get rid of the villians they introduced in Pocket Monsters Diamond and Pearl, so that they can focus on ending the Series before next Gen. Also, even though Charon isn't caught doesn't mean we get to see him again.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    How broken is Saturn's Toxicroak exactly?

    Regardless, of all the three parts of this concluding arc, this specific episode was the best. Hunter J never fails to impress (See the thread in Anime Spoilers for my thoughts on J "dying"), and if this is the way she goes out, then she went out in some ****ing style. It's been eons since Gary had a role, and it was good to see him get a taste of the action here, no matter how insignificant he was.

    So this is how we see the last of J... w/e she was bound to be seen the last of sometime. Cyrus has officially gone crazy! I found it funny how Mars screamed... o wait that was the next episode.

    Agreed, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if she managed to escape her sinking ship.

    Am I the only one thinking that her visor is floating down AFTER the ship because she got out?

    Actually, no, you're not the only one.

    Nice episode, I say. The explosion of J's ship... and her visor floating leaves an open ending for her, imo. It could mean she's dead OR alive.

    Anyway, I felt that the presence of TR was unnecessary as they took away screen time that could've been used to contribute to the actual plot. As insignificant as Gary was, considering the fact that he was helping Professor Rowan, I'm happy he got more screen time than expected. I lol'd bad when I saw the scene where Ash & Co. were teleported away from Cynthia's vehicle to Team Galactic's HQ.

    Hey, you know those bounty hunters. Even if they are thrown into sand-shark infested sands, they'll keep on coming back, like acne.

    Nevertheless that was a hectic eppy.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly. What attack did he command for Umbreon anyways?

    That's one thing. Them being teleported due to the pixies experiencing excruating paint, holy cr@p!! Cynthia was certainly surprised by this.

    Not that it matters, but she could come back. If she has the equipment to mount successful captures, then no doubt she would have emergency equipment just in case. She's careful, that's one decked out ship.

    I'm gonna say she may come back, but, we'll just have to see.

    Overall I thought the episode was intresting, and the second part makes it even better, time to go review that part now.[/QUOTE]

    At this rate, it seems more inconsistent than ol' Pika.

    If this is how the writers "kill" off a character, kudos to them, it's taken a while, but it seems they're getting the hang of things. This makes me feel confident in their abilities. Which is definitely a good thing.
    I found Gary was kind of thrown in there though, but he did at least try to do something (Electivire being affected by Dark Pulse, from Toxicroak begs me to wonder what was more broken; the villains or the actual heroes).

    Yeah, now that I think about it, she must have abandoned ship. She obviously is a selfish wench, so I probably wouldn't be surprised if she did manage to escape (escape pod in the event of emergency? Knowing her, possibly).

    I don't know if it was stated yet, but is it clear that Ash was surprised to see Cyrus?

    Charon was downright hilarious; he sees the other trio appear, and then chuckles like the old man he is.

    Part 2, goooood.

    Not too bad of an episode, Gary was pathetic though. Pointless in bringing him back. If this was the end of J, at least she went out with a bang....no pun intended.
