• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

I think it's kinda interesting she's watching it so she can have good luck, because I believe most of us are predicting she'll lose the next contest since its been awhile. Misleading description, or could Hikari be winning her 4th ribbon already?

Well realistically it'd probably be a good time for her to get her 4th ribbon seeing how Ash is almost to his 7th badge. They probably wouldn't have her get so many ribbons straight in a row though, so i'm expecting 3 more contests for Dawn before the GF.

I think it depends if Mamoswine obeys her in the Contest or not, or whether she uses it at all.

Its actually been a long time since the last Contest episode too, it almost been all Ash for the last 20 episodes.

It's been 15 episodes since DP96 where Dawn wins, and DP106 was sort of focused on Dawn since Piloswine evolved into Mamoswine.

We might see Kenny again soon since he has 3 ribbons but probably not Nando since he's at four.

Unless they introduce a new coordinator, I *think* we'll see Kenny at the next contest, given how long its been since his last real appearance.

However I figure we're due for another Zoey appearance soon since her hometown is Snowpoint, and that's where we're almost at.

Too many legendary episodes which I think are useless if no one captures them.

If there weren't so many this generation we wouldn't have to sit through all this. But the show is meant to promote the games so we'll just have to put up with them.

They are still putting a lot of older gen legendaries in it though, like Suicune back in that Drifloon filler and now Deoxys, not to mention Zapdos' brief appearance.

The older legendaries already got a lot of screentime in the older sagas and movies, and we just saw Deoxys again in Battle Frontier which wasn't that long ago.

Good thing we're out of stock of new legendaries to showcase now since Heatran and Arceus will most likely only be showcased in the movie.

With Kinoshita on board for this episode, I can already now tell that this will be one sucky episode.

(and yes Phione is a legendary. eod.)

.....

I am not going to say anything. I will simply remind these people (particularly Naix) of my proposed compromise. I'll stop arguing that Phione can't be legendary when people stop stating their Phione-legendary belief in the form of a fact. Unless you WANT me to argue my point....

Because everyone knows the animation makes or breaks the episode, right?

Wasn't DP4 animated by Kinoshita? So yeah, it usually does.

The only ep where his animation style didn't look horrible was the third Wallace cup ep if I rememebr correctly.

The sheer irony of the two episodes you selected to base your argument on... there are so many things I could say but most of them would get me in trouble, so I'll just say that it totally falls within your usual pattern.

Basically yes. Give me a good episode with bad animation if that isn't true.

They usually do have Kinoshita do the weaker episodes. He did the terrible Chingling filler, that Psyduck filler, that Poketch episode, DP4, and a few others I can't remember off the top of my head.

Its a shame his first episode was the first part of Ash's final match with Brandon, but ever since then they've handled the weaker fillers toward him.

Kinoshita must have put extra work into that one Wallace cup ep he did though, because when that ep aired I couldn't tell it was the same director and the ep actually looked good.

I can see where the priorities lie. Although this Phione filler could be good, especially if Kenny appears since the next ep sounds like a Contest.

Kenny? sounds good. I miss that kid.

And I think Kinoshita's a girl.

Animation does make the episodes when your as picky as we tend to be here.
