Sincerest apologies, I was meant to make the thread but I've been having serious problems with my internet.

Thanks for making one Dogasu.

This wasn't a capture ep.

Also I find it funny how Alexa lost her footage again.

I wonder how Long Alexa had Noivern maybe she had back when she was in Kalos maybe.

The title of this episode is misleading. I though Onvern would be a major part of the plot, but all it did was attack the Ghost Pokemon, and later, Team Rocket. This was kind of a meh episode for me plot wise, not to mention the animation was even worse than the Crimgan episode. At least we got to see Pansy battling for the first time. The only part I found enjoyable was when Musashi got crushed by the statue, and later on when she and Iris were arguing while running.

Guys look at this. Is it just me or does Jessie look genuinely astonished that James was able to lift that statue, so she's clapping haha. And ofc the boys did all the heavy work. :p

The hair and face is making me think that this is Ash and N's ancestor xD.

Watching this makes me think, was Parker really necessary for this arc? And if he was, was actually necessary for him to be actually several people? I mean, they barely appear now.
The animation in this episode is better than last time in my opinion, but there are two things that bother me: the Ditto faces everyone has when seen from certain distance, and the characters' heads and Alexa's chest size inconsistencies between episodes.

Also, the ending in this episode is pretty good. When something odd and mysterious happens, the gang usually ends up finding out what happened or accepting everything was a dream or that some things just aren't made to be revealed or something like that, but this time, the episode just ended with them clueless.

She does look so impressed, LOL. Jessie lifted it by herself the first time. When she gets angry, she gets powerful! XD

This was an OK episode. I liked the story, and that guy is definitely in Ash's family tree.

Anyone that knows Japanese (Dogasu?), when Alexa pointed to TR and said they were げいいん gei'in, what does that translate to? They got all offended because it was a pun (鯨飲 gei'in "drunkard/get really drunk", or what I first heard, ゲイ員 gei'in "gay person" which makes next to no sense), but I don't actually know what she called them.

We learn that Alexa uses Windows Vista and plays things in Media Player. C'mon, Alexa, get with the times. ^_^;

She was saying they they were the 原因, or "the cause," of their trouble.

Interesting how Satoshi and Pansy ran to an opposite way to Dent, Iris and Team Rocket. Perhaps the scene was foreshadowing that only Satoshi and Pansy will be present in XY? :p I kid. The episode was extremely boring, the only redeeming features were Pansy and her Onvern.
