Why is Pikachu always getting injured? Seems like something's wrong with his electricity again.
I think its the same reason as last time, due to that Pokemon at the start of Ash journey. I'm glad Iris gets to do some thing here, maybe both Iris and Dento get to do some thing, cuz from that other preview he along with Arty I think or was Looker {Forget been a while since I've seen it} And the professor were all at the party that Team Plasma and Team Rocket crash. I think they are trying to find out what they are up to. Not sure what happened to Ash during those scenes, maybe cuz of how many times he battled Team Rocket he was afraid they'd see right through him so he went to do other things?? Any who, can't wait for these episodes.

I saw the extended preview. Apparently, the helicopter got struck down by a hyper beam.

Hang on a second here. Are they not showing both parts on the same day then? Because if that's the case, Iwane is going to be working on both these episodes going by the preview. This one teaming up with Natsume, the second half solo. That's pretty awesome.

OMG These episodes look awesone. Scenery porn FTW! I'm still a bit worried that while Team Rocket, the twerps and the Plasma agents seem to be playing a big role, JJM were barely shown. Here's hoping they make an impact.

Glad to see so little of Dent during the preview, and I hope that's an indication of how prominent a part he'll play during this.
I'm hanging on to the hope that Dent and his brothers are the Dark Trinity and that's why we don't see him a lot during the Plasma scenes.

I don't mind the guy, but seriously, it's about time they had the resident Action Girl actually get in on the action.
Swinging on cables! Team Plasma is sure to be shaking in their booths!!!

That this is perceived as such big news just goes to show how thoroughly useless Iris is right now.

No matter what you say the fact remains the same, she is doing something relevant in this episode. She may not battle, but she was useful in BW021 and will be in this two-parter as well. ˘_˘

Oh yeah... her standing there doing nothing really helped take care of Gochizeru...

I think you meant BW022, where she had her 15 seconds of purpose!

I just sorta find it amusing that pretty much everyone was pinning their hopes in Iris playing such a big part in the Plasma plot and... she'll what? Swing off cables... Color me unimpressed.

You don't get it, do you?

Do you even know the meaning of the word useless is? Stop interpreting her actions as useless because she is doing something. It's your problem if you only think battles have something to do with characters, she'll get her share of battle eventually.

Also, we don't know what Iris might do. Maybe even more, maybe even less. But the fact she saved Pikachu from God knows what just doesn't scream useless to me. It's like you would call someone useless after the person saved your life.

Yes, she's swinging on a cable and saving Pikachu in this episode. I'm not saying that's nothing, but I am saying is that the fact that there's such a big deal being made about this, which is pretty minor compared to the role the other characters (Ash, TR, TP, Looker, Araragi, etc.) seem to be playing, shows just how little Iris actually does on a regular basis, and how little she contributes to the show.

Take this week's episode, we saw her do less than Shooti, Joy and even Dento was taking care of Ash when he got poisoned, on top of contributing as much as Iris in solving the Fushide crisis which is not a whole lot.

So much for Iris playing such a huge part in the Plasma plot...

You shouldn't really make a judge yet, 'cause you've only seen a preview, nothing more.
I still believe that Iris will play a big roll in all of this, but I may be wrong, but I won't know until I've seen the episode, right?

We're in BW023 and 24 - Team Plasma's first introduction.

You sound like Plasma plot is coming to an end and Iris did nothing in the past 80 episodes. <_<

Bulbapedia has it that a Krokorok is appearing in this episode? When was this confirmed and is it possible the the SK is already making another appearance?

Unless Pokemon Smash magically aired in some part of Japan and showed this, there's nothing to say it's appearing.

The mention of Krokorok appearing in this episode was mentioned before Pokemon Smash could even air if it was on schedule though.

Edit: Now I remember where it came from, there was some master quiz on the Pokemon Movie website, that when answered correctly, revealed a Pokemon in the upcoming episode. That Pokemon was Krokorok.

And here's a screenshot I took of the Master Quiz page on the movie's website.

That's kind of cool...it'll be interesting if it meets up with Team Rocket, given their similarities. :p

Also, I've heard rumors that due to the Earthquake they'll be airing both these episode the 24th...any truth to that?

Nothing's been announced yet. TV-Tokyo's site is still listing Part One as airing on the 17th.

Seems weird you'd think they'd give people a chance to clean up and get there electricity and cable back on.

As harsh as it is considering the loss of life, life does go on. They would not preempt shows except in exceptional circumstances. Waiting for everyone to get electricity, especially considering rolling blackouts are about to hit nine prefectures, is a very bad business decision. The economy in Japan has to return to close to normal as soon as possible
