    My guess is that Tomohisa Sako is involved, and thus he obviously would like to put some things he helped producing on the CD.

    It's interesting you made the connection to M02 because I remember when I first read the plot summary for the unused 3rd movie I immediately thought of this episode. I guess it was the "giant creature rampaging through the Kanto region and our heroes need to stop it" thing.

    I believe Daigo from AG and from XY are the same person. Design-wise since it's always changing, we can't say much. The game one changed too, right?

    About the Daigo's new bishounen appearance and voice, I think it was done since the anime was following the games closer than before? In AG most of the E4 members didn't appear, the champion was never mentioned (until DP, where they used Emerald as base), etc. Another facor is that most people watching the show during XY (or a good part) didn't see Daigo's original episode, so why bring it up?

    That episode in AG is pretty forgettable too, isn't it? In my opinion's a pretty boring filler.

    It actually reminds me the Orbs, Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza.

    One thing I always found weird about this episode was Alakazam (or was it Gengar?) throwing boomerangs that turned into strange-looking rocks...that did nothing. I never could figure out if that was supposed to be an actual move or what the point of it even was.

    Leave it to 4Kids to replace a Japanese name with another Japanese name! :ROFLMAO:

    The problem with late Kanto is that's when the Show started to lose the energy, edginess, emotion, and insanity of its early days and started to become just another kid's show...

    In fact...
    I have a long overdue confession to make: the reason I call it "the Show" or "the TV Show" in my post is because part of me is very hesitant to call it an anime. In fact, some times that part refuses to call it one...:cautious:

    (feels good to finally get that off my chest)

    Also, there's something a bit hypocritical about "host selling" when there are entire kid's shows & cartoons that are little more than half-hour, big budgeted commercials (right, GI Joe and Transformers?)...

    I actually agree with Dogasu about the second half of Kanto not getting enough love. Some of my absolute favorite episodes are from the second half, lol.

    Anyway, I had no idea that the pictures of James were a dub edit! That's pretty interesting. And yeah I remember being all "wtf" @ Otoshi not actually being the guy's original name, but whatever, it's 4Kids. :p

    I used to hate that episode a decade ago, but with the gift of hindsight (and your handy translations/notes) I'm wondering if this was a vague premonition of the Musashi that was to come in later years for contest/tripokalon arcs... The progression from "I want the spotlight without doing any work" to "I don't mind losing because I actually came quite far due the work of my friends and I" is quite remarkable.
