Wayne Grayson again, guessing he voices one of Viren's henchmen, we know H.D. Quinn voices Viren

Been a while since we've gotten a new dub episode. Looking forward to the usual episode clips.

Watching the episode, I think I detected an error, Viren refers to Ash as ''the brat from yesterday''

I'm no expert on timing but wouldn't the encounter with Viren have been the day before yesterday?

Man, this was infuriating to watch

They spend the entire day throwing poké balls at it and then have the gall to say they couldn't think of anything else to do?!

And the next day, Ash plans to throw TWO balls at the same time!

What a brave, intelligent, and ingenious hero

Then there's Tsundereena caving in Kiawe's skull and Ash's numerous blunders

Screw this episode, screw the Ultra Guardians, and screw the SM anime for dropping the ball on such a promising generation

So much for being called "Ultra Guardians."

The Japanese version says "yesterday" (kinou) as well. What I'm wondering is just what the whole phrase is. I'm not familiar with his way of speaking, so what he says after "Kisama kinou no" is kind of lost on me ("kinou no ko" [ko meaning kid] would make sense to me; "kinou no kozue[n?]ge" doesn't 0_o???).

I actually didn't hate this episode, and I usually don't really like the Ultra Guardian episodes. Maybe because there were some good lines/moments thrown in (mostly having to do with Viren...Kiawe was gold this episode with him).

Stakataka is a weird Ultra Beast (not like that's unusual, pretty much all of the Ultra Beasts are weird as hell) but I guess the premise behind it was odd, with the vault jumping. On one hand, I liked it; there were cute moments and it reminded me of when I was a gymnast. But it was also kind of a weird lesson I guess. "We're gonna practing jumping" like okay Kukui, what's that helping them with though?? Yeah, I know it helped with eventually beating Stakataka. I just meant in general, as like...an actual lesson, lol.

Still, I appreciate episodes which can make me laugh and put a smile on my face, so for that, the episode was enjoyable enough. Ultra Guardians and Ultra Beasts still don't do much for me as a plot point, though.

Yet another great episode! While I am getting a little tired of the Ultra Beast thing, the humor in this episode more than made up for it. My favorite part was when Ash used Turtonator’s spikes to get on top of Stakataka. I love Turtonator, so this made me very happy!
