In France, if you have a word with a double L after an I, it usually becomes a V when pronounced.
It's not ridiculous at all. You have to remember that Pikachu had no traction once the Ice field was made. Pikachu's feet are flat with no claws so the surface area of Pikachu's feet and the surface of the ice just slide against each other. With that said, it's hard to retaliate to a Beam attack when you have no recovery time nor traction to move about to dodge it.OMG, this episode was really bad!
I mean guys, let's face it: By now Pikachu should have become so strong that it can easily beat at least the first six or seven gym leaders without any help. (We witnessed what it was capable of in in the past, didn't we?) and now Ash's ace-Pokemon gets totally owned by a... Surskit! Seriously?? How ridiculous and illogical is that?
Once again, Ash and Pikachu seem to have gotten their famous power-reset at the beginning of a new journey but, honestly, I hate it when the writers do that just to make the first gym battle look more balanced and interesting. If Pikachu is too strong, you have to come up with another concept (Pikachu getting ill and thus not being able to battle or whatever) but repeating the same pattern again and again is getting less and less convincing for us older fans.
In short: I'm not happy with this episode!
Have you played X or Y? That Surskit is a demon. O_O I don't call this illogical at all. I feel for Pikachu.By now Pikachu should have become so strong that it can easily beat at least the first six or seven gym leaders without any help. (We witnessed what it was capable of in in the past, didn't we?) and now Ash's ace-Pokemon gets totally owned by a... Surskit! Seriously?? How ridiculous and illogical is that?
Wait, did they dub Vivillion's voice?Wow. Just wow. TCPi replaced 95% of the music used during the gym battle for the some weird, not-Pokemon-sounding noise.
I mean really? No gym battle music during the the gym battle?
Vivillon being pronounced like it's Japanese name, and sounding like its Japanese anime counterpart, is pretty cool. The music is a real let-down though.
Well season 1 of Black and White kept most of the original music, even after the first 5 episodes which just kept everything without any dub added cues.Didn't the DP dub try to keep most of the game music or other symbolic pieces? Especially when it was sort of "theme music" of certain things? (like Movie 8 music in Riolu/Lucario eps, Movie 9 music in Pokémon Ranger eps, and other "iconic" music)
I can't remember if the BW dub did the same (and tbh not even completely sure about the DP dub following this "rule" but I think they sort of tried at least) but XY seems to completely throw that away, like there is some new rule now that they have to replace as much as possible, without even trying to keep "important" pieces like they sometimes did in the past... I don't know, it can get super confusing to try making sense of their "logic" (if there is any) about the bgm...
