    The Sinnoh Space-Time Legend!

    The gang finally enter Eterna City, the home of the second Sinnoh Gym. However, before they get to the gym, they meet up with the old friends Gardenia & Nando. However, recently there has been a theft of the rare Adamant Orb, linked to Dialga and Nando & his Sunflora are implicated in the crime. Is Nando innocent and if so, will Ash & Co. manage to uncover the true culprits?

    What an awesome episode eh.

    The first insight of Dialga and Palika, as well as.. TEAM GALACTIC! And the helicopter they rode was very similar to J's I do believe.

    Seeing Nando again was cool also, as well as having lots of little battles. But best of all, Staravia left its Pokéball; even if it still did nothing.

    Speaking of J, Ash I believe mentioned her (with a pic), as well as Butch and Cassidy when thinking of possible thieves.

    Mesprit, Dialga, Palkia, Yuxie, and Azelf all appear as statues.

    The Tower of Space and Time from Movie 10 has a model in the museum.

    Also, apparently that lax Jenny was from Viridian.

    Oh, and Dawn knows the Dialga and Palkia story, as do most residents.

    And Nando has won a Ribbon and beaten Gardenia.


    So yeah, it looks like the writers are attempting a running plot.

    One great thing in my eyes about this episode, the first appearence of Team Galactic, from the preview, I expected nothing, but the teaser, as it were, at the end shows us there will be majour appearences, hopefully ones better than that of Magma and Aqua.

    Shame they only showed Saturn, as appose to Mars or Jupiter, if i'm not mistaken, isn't he the last commander to be encountered? Though, I know, the animé does not mirror the games in any way shape or form...

    Wait..isn't Jupiter a girl though? <_< And I hate going by pictures, but, whoever does the backrounds did a nice job in this episode >_>

    It was Saturn that appeared, and the animation was OK for a KinoSHITa episode.

    So Galaxy really did appear? Huh, would have bet money on J being the anime's Galaxy....
    And yay for remembering J and B&C; and a cameo of a 10th movie local is nice.
    *will comment later when we gets pictures*

    GALACTIC! Finally. I am so glad they finally appeared. Looks like a good episode, Team Galactic, "cameo" by J, Butch and Cassidy, Dialga, Plakia, the tower from the 10th movie. Movie Continuity has been proven!

    My how that Jenny has changed.

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    Let's make this one quick:

    - Three cross-dressing thieves have stolen a crystal soccer ball! Who knows what evil plans they have in store for it...like kicking it!
    - Egads! It's the creepy masochistic girl from DP31!
    - And it's Random Filler Dude from DP04! Anybody in a cowboy hat with long locks and who totes around a harp is just asking to be arrested. Or at least deserving of a house-egging.
    - It's da Jenny from da hood!
    - Jubilife TV Crew cameo!
    - A ship with the Galactic logo is looming overhead...
    - "Did you hold a grudge against Mongomery Burns?" "No." *zap*
    - Pikachu just grabbed Piplup in all sorts of inappropriate places!
    - Oh gawd! James is pregnant!
    - And Gardenia still has a thing for James' Pokemon.
    - 'Bout time Stunky actually does something.

    I would have preferred it if they actually made Galactic the thieves in this episode instead of TR, as Galactic is already a few appearances behind in comparison to the games. Otherwise, I think we can bet on Nando making a third appearance in the future. He's the Casey of Sinnoh, I suppose. (except infinitely less obnoxious)

    Apparently, they suspect that Team Rocket was hired by Galatic.

    I'm starting to think that J in someway will be hired by Team Galactic, as she is a very efficient Pokémon Hunter; so maybe they hire her to help them catch Dialga/Palika/random Pokémon they want (Clefairy etc)...

    As Starly already said, it was a pretty decent episode for a Kinoshita-one. Maybe he IS improving? The anmation was lackluster ( reusing opening footage for showing Palkia & dialga? o_O) but the art was a lot better than previous kinoshita episodes.

    I can´t wait for a certain someone to tear this episode apart because Naoshi wasn´t an evil madman...

    yay for team Galactic!!!
    and Azelf, Uxie and esprit too,
    one question though what happened to team rocket at the end, did they get arrested or what

    They ran away because Jessie was so infected by Stunky's stench that the dozens of officers couldn't bear the smell and opened a pathway for them.

    Where is the second Jenny from? I heard 'Kanto' somewhere, but I don't know the Japanese names for the cities, thus... my curiosity.

    Also, what did Dawn cry out, as she watched TR leave?
  15. XyronTheFalcon

    XyronTheFalcon I'm Back? YAY!

    The "Gangsta" Jessie is from Viridian.

    And J being hired by Galactic is possible, but I think J kinda likes ash though.

    Usually when Ash and co meet someone, they forget the person until they meet each other again. But, Ash actually mentioned J...which could be the start of something new..err...nevermind..

    I could see, during the " Evil Team's Last Stand" Episode(s), as in the GrouGre Battle in Hoenn, J could doublecross Galactic( if she joins) or just help Ash and co defeat Galactic...

    Provided The Writers capture Galactic's Bad ***'ness properly!

    Jonah herd u liek mudkips?

    I seem to remember Saturn saying something when you first meet him about you being the one who raided the Galactic Eterna building, so Saturn being in this epi makes more sense than Mars, but still less than Jupiter.

    What was Meowth's Boss Fantasy? I didn't see one in the epi pics.

    Anyways, J and Saturn appearing was awesome (So, J is going to be a reccuring character?), but what did "Botch" and Cassidy have to do anything with anything?
  17. Seijiro Mafuné

    XTF, it wasn't Ash (at least, not the one who referred to her and then the picture appeared), but one of the Jennies who commented about J being one of the options.

    ...and her liking him? Where did *that* come from, now?

    By looking at the episode pics i have a feeling that they are going to connect the anime & movie together this time, because they showed the Tower of Time & Space and also the legend.
    But i am not sure how.

    Extra:-Hey i got a very weird idea that Ash & Hunter J would be made in a sort of way as Ruby & Courtney were in the manga. Meaning how Courtney & Ruby where enemies first but then joined forces to fight together & became rivals after that, I think Ash & Hunter J would be showed in the similar way.

    I was a little worried about this episode at first, as I was hearing mummerings about Jessie and James joining Team Galactic. Glad to here that they were just hired to do the job, and...

    Wait a second. Team Galactic are supposed to have quite a number of Rock Lee esque looking Grunts at their disposal, so why didn't they just get their own guys to do the job? :/

    Butch and Cassidy being shown as possible thieves is win, and proves that Ash hasn't forgotten them. It's annoying though because it also proves that the writers DO remember stuff from the past, so why are things constantly over looked?
