    Slateport?! So that's where it is. I though that the grand festival and the league was both in Ever grande.... Oh well, I guess I was wrong.

    I want to see what happens when J&J call the Boss to report that Aqua and Magma have disbanded. And what happens when they try to take the credit for it.

    As expected in the two-Jenny scene, Brock has no trouble telling which is the real one. I especially liked the way he threw Bannai's catchphrase ("Reality isn't limited to what you can see") back at him when announcing which was the fake.

    Is it just me or did I see a Lady from the games (or something impersonating like Ditto) in one scene?

    We haven't had many random game trainers in the anime. Even though it was Bannai in drag, it was a great game plug.

    I just saw the episode, and I noticed something interesting. Gonbe was added in the ending, both in the scene with Haruka running with all her Pokemon (Gonbe's in the back and to the side of the screen) and in the picture of all the group's Pokemon standing together. I went back and rewatched Glory Day on the episode with Masamune and Danbaru and noticed Gonbe wasn't in there, so it'd seem this change occured with this episode.

    Bannai was obviously a villain...no, a character too good to leave behind, unlike PMC. I hope we see more of him in the future. If Pokemon was a character driven anime as opposed to a product based one, there'd obviously be more than meets the eye about that Ditto boy.

    Yeah I just tripped that one of his disguises WAS a random trainer from the R/S/E games. I barely see any NPC trainers you battle that appear in the anime, let's see there was the Gentleman on the St. Anne, Battle Girl Shinobu, Gisselle was a Lass (I think), there was also the Winstrate family, there's gotta be more than that because my memory's spotty.

    A few though, the most recent being James dressing up as the random Gentleman trainer in the Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir ep.

    Yes but their still nice to see. Kind of reminds you where this started from.

    I thought this episode was a really nice one. Bannai looked good, also imo the animations were good in this episode.

    Also what Yamato-san said about Munchlax being added, I noticed that too in that group pic but didn't see it in the pic where May ran.

    Also Brock knowing the real Jenny was a good one. And Bannai's changes of outfits was cool too. Overall I thought it was a great episode and of course Munchlax had to be controlled with a pokeblock. An energetic pokemon I might say so.

    I've got to ask this. Did they keep true with their recent little fad and use the craptacular music they've been shoving in our faces since the Donphan episode? This gravy is curious as all.
     
  13. It sounds like a cool ep! I wonder what Bannai's dub name will be! Any Ideas? Or its the same! So he left team magma but hes still evil? Whats up with that!

    Maybe Bannai's dub name will be Barney? Sorta cheesy I know, but Barney and Bannai are close a like. Lately the dubbers have been giving characters names kinda similar to their Japanese names. Or they could give him a name reflecting his good imitation abilities.

    This episode looked good. It's nice to see Nurse Joy & Officier Jenny again. I was wondering what became of them. It didn't surprise me that Bannai would try dressing up as a girl again. Of course, as long as Brock's nearby, he won't suceed with that plan. X)

    Barney doesn't seem like a name suited to a villain to me, but basing his name on his imitation abilities is a possibility (like we saw with Duplica)...
     
  16. Maybe it could just be Bannia! Or Barry! or Banky!

    We should name him Duplico! -_- That sounds weird. Barney doesn't sound evil. Banky? Is that even a name? :p

    Excuse me Gravy, but this gal actually enjoys some of the more recent BGM's.

    Most of it is from the 4th and 5th mini-movies, and I LOVED the soundtrack for those. And Having a really cool lyrical song ( Rival in the Masamune Episode, Challenger in the Second Pacificlog Episode) is really cool. Sorry to go off, but I really don't mind the new musical tunes. They still keep some of the older ones.

    Anyway, I REALLY want the Team Magma theme to be in this episode. And poor Ditto got kicked out!
     
  19. I don't often keep up with the show but this episode sounds interesting, even if for the most part it is filler. And of course Ash is going to say yes the second Jenny asks, if not him then Brock -_- Bannai seems cool enough to make this a good filler episode. As for his dub name, it is safe to asume that it is a stupid name, and even more likly, an annoying voice.

    At least Bannai escaped. Maybe next time he shows up, they'll put him in a better plot.

    Grand Festival? I sure as heck hope so.
