It's been like 4 months and Enter The Champion is going to air in English on January 18 (in the USA at least, maybe earlier in Australia). It's time, but on the other side I'm really pissed off on how the episode's "Ash wins Alola League, but that's not all (he's going to a rematch)" ending got news attention months before the English dub will air. And all of them failed to mention "This episode is yet to air in America" or something among the lines of that...

I was just saying the episode will have already died down by this point, and WatchMojo actually used raw JP clips with a sort-of "telling by the visuals" script after the news broke in. Back in the PokeMania days, we were warned that Gold and Silver will have all-new Pokemon and they won't come out until later with stuff like Togetic and Azumarill coming in very rarely.

Well, there's also the fact that back in the GS days Internet wasn't as common as it is today, so things like that would still be surprising to the west.

Are we sure? Because PM!Ash is nothing like SM!Ash and is far closer to DP/XY!Ash in terms of personality and skill
It does when it writes two completely separate characters
They aren’t two completely separate characters. The writing in the most recent episode for PM is fully consistent with Sun/Moon.

I find it amusing that people tell me that repeating the same thing doesn't make it any more true and then turn around and do the exact same thing :confused:
