I thought this episode was going to be all about Giratina, I was wrong. I really hate misunderstandings as they cause people to go over the wrong side. I never get how those things James was using to find dusk stones work.
It was just as Filler-y and bland as the Japanese version, but at least I understood the setting and plot a little more. The episode was bland because it involved Pokemon we've seen before and a plot that seemed to have been copied from another episode. I liked that James got his chance to shine when it came to finding the Dusk Stone, but other than that, all the other characters even the COTD Mitchel and Rihanna (pop culture reference?) seemed a tad boring even for COTD.
Overall, it involved a sibling rivalry that was solved at the last minute when Mitchel's Murkrow saved Rihanna's Misdreavus. Too convenient for my tastes. A 5/10.
I just watched 5 minutes of this before getting bored, but, the first part struck me as odd. The 3 feature movies for the DP saga focus on Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, and Arceus. After everything that went on in the Giratina movie, why the hell did Ash have to take his pokedex out for Giratina? That was just f'd up. I wanted to scream at Ash for not recognizing Giratina.
