Yeah, but the episode numbers are wrong and you shouldn't link to the scan with that site.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

The numbers are NOT wrong. Those were the real numbers including the 2 Rocket episodes. Bulbapedia and you guys here on BMGF are wrong.

The numbers are BW51 and BW52.

You have no justification to lock my topic since you made yours 5 minutes after me.

I'll make sure that the administrator will take care of you.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

The two rocket episodes that didn't air? Considering that they reworked the fishing episode to be a different one, including episodes that have not aired and could either a) skipped completely or b) have the plot reworked into a future episode making it canonically take place around that time frame thus making their episode numbers not make sense, makes adding them to the episode count completely bogus.

Anyway, I wonder if Kamitsure will look as robotic as she does in the games. I saw a shot of the Subway Masters, who look just as robotic as Kamitsure in the games, seem more human.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

Also, Bulbapedia and Bulbagarden already don't class the New Year special and the Earthquake episode as proper episodes, so it should be no surprise that they are not classing the Rocket/Plasma ones as proper episodes as well.

Anyway, I was certain we wouldn't have Elesa for a while. Oh well, I guess 27 episodes between Burgh and Elesa isn't too bad, but I was annoyed that there would be four gyms in the dubbed season.

EDIT: Didn't DP get a clip show at around this time of year in 2007? I'm not saying I like them, but one is kind of due, and it would reveal some stuff later in the series.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

Im looking forward to the end of the countless filler episodes! Combined with the Subway Episodes, it looks like we'll have a satisfying end to our constant waiting. Hopefully the gym battle will be dramatic and intense, and that the introductory episode will be something interesting.

Placing my bets on Palpitoad, Roggenrolla or Scraggy and either Pikachu or Snivy to take part in this battle. And I cant help but wonder if Meowth will still be around

Yes, DP48 was a clipshow. It didn't reveal any future spoilers however as far as I know, with the only one I remember doing that being DP120.

I know that, but I was thinking a clip show's only meaning apart from to 'refresh people's minds' and 'create another skipped dub episode' was to reveal future secrets like the last clip show did.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

Wait... so... no break after the one hour special... neato!

Kamiture's game personality didn't rock my world, so I'm hoping the anime takes her to the next level. Also, I'm hoping for a Bel appearance here, it would be great to reestablish her as the determined and somewhat competent, yet adoringly ditzy and over the top rival she was before the Don Battle fiasco, maybe see a different side of her, learn more about her backstory, etc. She's got a grudge match with a Zebraika

On the gym battle itself, I'd have to see the team Satoshi'll use before venturing on whether or not it'll be interesting. I'm thinking Mijumaru'll be used, and maybe star in the battle, Pikachu will also be used. I wouldn't be surprised to see Hatoboh, Kurumayu or Dangoro be the third choice to really make sure we have at least one personality-less pokémon on the team to drag the battle's energy down a bit.

Also, I'm kinda hoping Iris's Emonga turns out to be one of Kamiture's two Emonga that Iris would have released and given to her, in which case I could see Tsutarja in the battle.

Overall, I'm excited we're finally getting to Raimon City!

Nice, I'm glad Kamitsure gets an introduction episode before the gym battle. Hope she gets a groovy theme song that plays every time she's on screen (remember Arti?). And here I thought there would be a break on my bd, I was legit sad about that haha.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

Well, took them long enough!

I had to wait over 20 episodes for this.

Keeping Elesa away from our viewing this long is unacceptable!

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

Okay, going by the originally intended episode order:

Badge 1: Episode 6
Badge 2: Episode 16
Badge 3: Episode 25
Badge 4: Episode 52 [and that's assuming Ash beats Elesa on his first try]

DAT PACING.

Would it be to much to ask for Ash to battle competently here, since he's recently seen both species of Pokémon that Elesa uses?

It'd be funny if the anime made Elesa super hyper-active or something.

Re: BW049 + BW050 - Kamiture and the 4th Gym!

I do sometimes feel as if I'm the only one who couldn't care less how long it takes to get to these gym episodes. Especially for a series that's had fairly mundane battles all round up to this point...:p

That said, nice to see Robo-Twig at last. Something interesting about her in the games is that she seems to stifle an excitable, 'fun' personality in favour of the cool, calm and collected one she's mostly known for. When you beat her in the gym battle, she lets it slip for a moment before quickly regaining her composure. I hope that's something the show can touch upon. Someone mentioned Bel earlier in the thread, and I think she'd be the perfect character to bring out that side of her.

Also, am I the only one who'd rather they have her use another electric 'mon in the gym instead of the second Emonga? I mean, by all means let her have two of them anyway, perhaps perching on her shoulders as 'mascots', but have it so another pokemon like, say, Denchula gets a shot at a good battle.

Thank goodness we're at the fourth gym battle! Let's hope my favorite Isshu Gym Leader is portrayed well!
