Since the dub version has had some success, I'll tackle the Japanese one at last. Same format as the dub one: discuss, use spoilers if need be, and then, move on to the next one. And Serebii.net dropped two titles today. Enjoy.

Episode 525: Bibarel Understood!
Episode 526: Probopass! Burning Spirit!

Uh, yes! Heh. I've seen better titles.

Bibarel Understood!

Wow. Because that doesn't sound like a filler. This is why the Japanese titles can be depressing. You can tell straight away if they're fillers. At least with the dub they can trick you into watching fillers, watching an episode you thought was another, make you think that it'll be an interesting or weird...but that's titles just...so fillery sounding. OK, I must be one of the few people that prefers the dub titles.

So we're going to see Probopass haha good. I can't wait to see it in the anime, it looks so funny.

Three new titles today!

Episode 527: Luxray's Eyes
Episode 528: The Unown of Solaceon Ruins
Episode 529: Pokemon Contest! Solaceon Convention

I'll look forward to the Unown one, as anything with an Unown-focus is usually top-notch.

New title. Serebii.net dropped it yesterday, but the site classified it as a dub title, but the episode numbering and title itself tell me otherwise.

Episode 530: Miltank & The Maid Cafe!

Sounds like more game canon fun to me. Whoo.

I heard that in the second Ranger game, there're two eggs (Manaphy and Riolu) that can be transferred to D/P. The Riolu will know Aura Sphere, which it would normally not learn until it evolves.

This particular Riolu must know Aura Sphere.

I'll go for maybe. The writers c a n evolve Pikachu if they want, but it most likely they w o n t let him evolve. Pikachu is the "mascot" of Pokemon, and oh no! It would be horrible if the main character of the anime doesn't carry one around... >.<

And for myself, I would like Pikachu to evolve. Not because I like Raichu better than Pikachu, but because the Ep is s o unoriginal if they're just going to reminds us of why Pikachu doesn't want to evolve..

But it's most likely it's going to be an Ep about, Pikachu losing a battle to a Raichu, Satoshi finding/getting a Thunderstone, Pikachu thinks about evolve, Pikachu (doesn't) evolve and beat the Raichu. The e n d .

no, the movie takes place long AFTER this episode. The bat thing that Ash has evolved, and somebody caught a swinub...

neither of those events happened yet, there is no Raichuu known to be in the movie, and we STILL see Pikachuu & Ash in the same scenes in the movie.

Raichu is too fat to sit atop Ash's head/shoulder, so I highly doubt the writers will have Pikachu evolve.

Jim
March 23rd, 2008, 03:42 AM
First of all I know he will not evolve. It's like replacing Ash or a member of Team Rocket. (Although they had no trouble replacing Misty and May). A much as I'd love this to happen, no, it just won't. Plus according to Bulbapedia, the gang meet a trainer with a Pichu and Raichu and he thinks Ash's Pikachu is a wild one. So there will be a battle of electric mice. omg I just realized how amazing it would be to have a Pikachu flashback where he remembers life as a Pichu and how he was caught by Oak, heh.

I haven't watched the anime for a long time, but if Pikachu did evolve i would probably re-start from there, I agree with Kansas, things need to be shaken up. However after seeing this movie trailer screenshot (http://imageboard.pocketmonsters.net/Movie/src/120601590491.jpg); there is a new Pokémon and a new evolution that have not been seen in the main series yet, not to mention there's still a Pikachu perched on Ash's shoulder. Not a Raichu.

[But yes, I'd love it to evolve, and evolve in a huge mega super amazing episode with the old, or at least better, VAs o.-]

in other words, that's a big fat freakin' yes.

unfortunately, the writing staff disagree with the fans (heaven forbid they actually have a plot twist they haven't used at least three times already...) and so we know they won't do squat when it comes to evolving pikachu.

The second episode which comes shows Pikachu who loses a battle against a Raichu.

Dude, you just won the Interweb.

Anyway, I agree with what's been said about Pikachu evolving to shake things up. Pokemon these days is ridiculous (they should have ended it in Hoenn); constantly using the same old, same old plots, half the time there's NO character development and though they've come up with some darn good plot ideas in the past from what I've heard, they ALWAYS scrap them for fear that "shaking" the fandom up will lose them fans (though they don't seem to realise they're losing it by constantly repeating and not letting Pokemon end gracefully)

Pikachu won't evolve. As great and different as it would be, they won't do it.

As for Raichu sitting on a shoulder...well it COULD happen...just not if you're a midget. (Like me ;>)

Summary: Ash & co. have a reunion with their old friend, May, who is going to attend the Contest to be held by Wallace. They decide to have lunch in a well-known restaurant nearby, however the owner of the restaurant, who has a crush on Pokemon battles, says that only the winners of the tag battles can enjoy the full-course meal. Thus Ash & Brock are partnered; so are Dawn & May.

DP76:「レストラン七つ星!タッグバトルでフルコース!!」
Restaurant Seven Stars! Tag Battles for a Full-course Meal!!

Air date: 24 April

Summary: Ash & co. have a reunion with their old friend, May, who is going to attend the Contest to be held by Wallace. They decide to have lunch in a well-known restaurant nearby, however the owner of the restaurant, who has a crush on Pokemon battles, says that only the winners of the tag battles can enjoy the full-course meal. Thus Ash & Brock are partnered; so are Dawn & May.

It was confirmed to be the new title.

Do my eyes decieve me? MAY!? Yay! This is going to be the only episode I watch in Japanese before dub, I cannot wait! It's in half-term yay! Anyway, I think its obvious that May (and Dawn) are going to win but yay May! I wonder if she's going to wear her Emerald clothes!? It would be so cool to see it in the anime! Yay May!

WOW!!!! That is something since really after all the times they had the chance to hint that May even existed they do it like now! SU!!! That is a long time!!

Well as in May being in Sinnoh. Maybe she is taking a break from Jotho to come to this contest kinda like how Misty came to visit Ash in Hoenn.

Some new titles... and they're airing as a one-hour special. Something which I suspected would happen and did.

Source: Pokeani (err, not really, just a post on the forums, but...), Serebii

Air date: 3rd July 2008

DP 84: The Gluttonous Swinub at Mr. Backlot's!

DP 85: Gligar! Wings of Frienship!!

And as a side-note here's the summaries...

DP 84: A Swinub constantly shows up at Mr. Backlot's (the garden I guess) and eats away all the Poffins. Dawn tries to stop it by making her own Poffins for the Swinub.

DP 85: Ash continues his training with Gligar, but finds out it has become a little fearful of battles since the battle against Paul. The group meets Gary at Lake Valor again, and Ash asks Gary to help him solve the problem with Gligar. After many failed attempts to have Gligar fight properly again, Gary takes out a certain item to banish its fear...

Akio123
June 9th, 2008, 09:51 AM
Ugh you beat me to the posting of the new titles*hits with pokeball* Darn you Steelmaniac! DARN YOU! XD.

Anyway, finally Gligar will probably evolve and Swinub capture. And what's more its an hour long special to boot.^^

Edit: Sadly Swinub is jsut an expy of Munchlax...

Jorah
June 9th, 2008, 12:22 PM
If they're at Mr Backlot's, they're going back to Hearthome? Oh yeah, I was getting mixed up with the dub. Wait, that's kind of messed up. They're at the Pastoria gym then go to Mr Backlot's (they went there in the Luxray episode, right?) then jump to Lake Valor? Weird. So I suppose it's not going to be a surprise who gets the Swinub.

Wow! Gary again! Hurrah! 2nd time meeting...that's almost as many times Gary met up with Ash back in Kanto haha. They met 4 times before the league in Kanto, the Diglett episode, the fossil episode, 7th gym and at Oak's lab when he got 8 badges. It really shows how often Paul meets up in comparison.

But I don't know, how would evolving Gligar make it lose its fear? :/ Oh well, it's Pokemon.

Akio123
June 9th, 2008, 12:28 PM
Well it's fear is losing all the time and losing to Gliscor again. Not to mention so far most pokemon so far that evolve gain some more cofidence or did you forget how CHarizard used to be? XD

STEELIXMANIAC
June 9th, 2008, 12:45 PM
One thing's for sure... Paul is synonymous with the word "fear" because this isn't the first time Ash's Pokémon has developed a fear due to him and his Pokémon.

Although, given Gligar's young age (proven in DP 81), it's easy to see why it developed that fear of battles. Presumably though, Chimchar's the same way.

I still can't wait for 85 though, because of the character development we'll be seeing in it. =D

Akio123

Well, I am also looking forward to DP 84 myself, and with regards to Gligar's gender... Me and my friend actually went through the possible evidence of its gender and guess what? Every single piece of evidence pointed to it being female, but then again, it's quite young and I don't dare make any clear assumptions at the moment. However, many people think it's female.

Sweet the DP 85 is going to be good. We get to see Gary again pulse Gilgar evolves what more could you ask for. Makes me wonder will Gary have a new Sinnoh Pokemon on his Team. For DP 84 I think they could have been a lot more creative then just putting the plot on how May caught Munchlax into an Ep similar to Dawn.

I'm looking forward to 84 & 85, and especially to seeing Gligar evolve. Though I'm left pondering how Ash and Co. are going to get back to Lake Valor after going to Backlot's. Either 84 will be the result of some day trip (perhaps organised by Wake?), if you will, or for 85 we see the return of Gary's convertible. XD

I'm also kind of stumped on why they're heading back to Lake Valor because I have DP 86's title here...

"Hearthome Collection! The Road to Becoming a Pokémon Stylist!!"

...Which would then mean they'll get from Lake Valor all the way to Hearthome in an episode's time.

Yes, I know its a bit early but Sushi posted this:
A summary was actually revealed several days ago but I didn't want to post it without knowing where it actually came from (dunno if somebody else posted it, but I think not). Now TV Tokyo has revealed a very similar one, so here you go:

Ash and his friends have returned to Hearthome City to challenge the local Gym Leader who had been absent during their last visit. However, they hear that the Gym Leader is still gone, making Ash unable to have his Gym Battle.
The group meets an Idol Pokémon Stylist called Paris (don't ask) and her Lopunny. Upon seeing Dawn's Buneary, the woman suggests her to enter the so-called "Pokémon Collection", a famous fashion show...

Voice Actors
*Enta from the Tag Battle Tournament: Kenta Miyake
*Paris: Hitomi Nabatame
*Hoshino: Sayuri
*Chouko: Ryouko Shintani
Yes Lopunny's trainer...is a Paris Hilton Reference. Although I'm happy about this because Buneary get's some screentime...I kinda wish the trainer wasn't a Paris Hilton reference...Also this would make what three American Pop Culture references in terms of celebrities?

I hope it does become a mini-arc (and lolwut, it'll be the third mini-arc this term), especially since it's going to run over the course of a week. Minimally, it'd be ideal for them to put a week-long event for around three or four episodes, which probably is just right for this kind of event.

These episodes sound interesting, not your usual filler. The presentations, ghosts and triathlon have the potential to be funny, well, I can't see any other way as to how the presentations will be interesting, so hopefully it's funny. Although I could be pessimistic and say the ghost one will just be helping ghost Pokemon, but it doesn't sound like it.

Oh man...oh well this isn't a terrible thing makes me wonder how they'll cure the Psyduck then...

Maybe they won't cure them? Otherwise they'd have to go to Celeceon then go back to Hearthome for the gym, which would REALLY be stretching it out. Or they cure them, go through summer school, Hearthome, then go back to the road to Celeceon. Unless the Psyduck are in some random filler route. But really, if Cynthia doesn't say anything to them, there's no point in them going to Celeceon. Perhaps there'll be a contest there or something.

The entire Betobeton subplot seemed rather tacked-on to me, but the episode itself was humourous no less.

The Summer School Arc looks interesting, particularly with Kouhei's return to the series.

On another note, the animators can't decide on how to do the clouds, and if the preview says anything, they're making the cloud outlining softer. Wish they could make up their minds, but if the clouds end up looking like this then I'm happy as a pig in mud. :(

Meanwhile, Team Rocket, who were following the group on a slope, decide to have lunch in a luxury restaurant. But then Jessie notices that Meowth's golden charm is buried under rolls of flab. The trio now realizes that, due to them having lead a rich and luxurious life ever since they had earned the money at the summer school, they have become lazy and grown a lot in flesh. Wanting to return to their former "sharp and cool" shapes, they start a harsh training session.

But that doesn't matter to the anime, anyway...I know better than to think the anime will keep the "we're going to blow up the whole town" thing. Oh well, another contest.

This weeks episode, "Team Rocket, Back to Basics" was pretty awesome for the following reasons:
- OBESE Team Rocket. The money they made during the Summer School must have been great.

The Ginga-Dan are desperately trying to get their hands on the legendary treasure, the Adamant Orb. Meanwhile, Satoshi and his friends head to the history museum in order to meet up with the Champion, Shirona. When they arrive, they meet the curator who shows them another treasure, the Lustrous Orb...

I can NOT wait for the Team Galectic episodes!!

Don't you think is strange that the Elite Four hasn't appeared in Johto or Hoenn (Only Bruno, Agatha and Lorelei) and suddenly we meet with the Champion itself (never occured) and the other Elite Four members of Sinnoh? It's kinda inusual to me, but I'll we waiting for the Episode. I think Aaron is great

Vernikova
September 24th, 2008, 01:33 PM
Drake made an appearance in Hoenn. So did Steven, but if you don't count that, Wallace has come in Sinnoh. Lance was also in Hoenn. Agatha was part of Hoenn, a little before BF.

Master Jecht
September 24th, 2008, 02:55 PM
Nice it will be good to see Aaron in the Anime. He was my favorite of the new elite 4. They certainly are going all out to show the members of the pokemon league in D/P. I dont know where we would see Bertha, but I could see them putting flint in sunnyshore city like he was in the game.

Don't forget Lance made his first appearance in Johto as well, so there ya go, a member of the Elite Four was in Johto. You see if you've played the Johto games ex: GSC, the Elite Four are: Will, Koga, Bruno, and Karen, then theres Lance as the Champion.

I too find it odd that not alot of Elite Four members were shafted in Johto. Will or Karen at the VERY LEAST should have gotten an episode or a cameo, since we know little about them, plus the other half of Hoenn's Elite Four like: Glacia, and Sidney. They made a rehash of Koga and Bruno for Johto's Elite Four since Koga is the Fuschia Gym Leader in the Kanto games, and Bruno is an Elite Four of Kanto. It's just strange.


But anyway, Aaron appearing should be interesting! I hope we get his awesome Bug pokemon XD. Something tells that all the Sinnoh Elite Four and Champion showing up like this must mean that the Champion league isn't far off for Ash! .........maybe not, but its very possible after Sinnoh is over.

STEELIXMANIAC
September 25th, 2008, 07:30 AM
The only thing I want to see is the battle between Ryou and Satoshi. I'd like to see how strong this Bug trainer is. Also, I hope for some much needed battle time for Mukubird and Glion, who will undoubtedly hold the advantage due to their Flying-type, which would foil Ryou's attempts to actually land serious blows. However, this could be offset if he'll indeed show that he's of Elite Four status though.

Also, I'd like to see how his character is portrayed in the anime. Mostly likely different from the games, but I still would like to see the anime's take on his character and personality.

September 25th, 2008, 12:21 PM
Well, considering how the writers have effed up on the Elite Four in the past, it's nice to know they are finally listening to the fans.

I'm more curious on the two part Galactic episode, myself. Wonder if it will be a redux of Lance and the Red Gyarados in some way. Due to Cynthia's involvement. Honestly, I didn't think she'd return... so soon, anyway.

October 4th, 2008, 07:54 PM
From what I got from lolserebii, Cyrus was undercover. He helped his teammates get the Adamant and Lustrous Orbs, which they succeeded at.

First appearance of Cynthia's Gastrodon. I was hoping for Togekiss over it, seeing as I'd really like to see their Pt teams...so that means no Yanmega on Aaron's team :(

A rematch between Brock's Croagunk and Jupiter's Toxicroak! I see a rivalry developing! (And possibly a "I need to evolve to become strong enough to defeat that Toxicroak" personality trait growing as well.)

And from the look of the screenshots, apparently, talk of the (Red, was it?) Chain that Cyrus used to rip the dimensions open was there, as it frequently showed pictures of the lake trio and Cyrus doing some insane little speech thingie. Wierd. o.O

The other Galactic Admins were introduced, all with their proper teams. Interesting.

I'm just happy that this time around, they're actually injecting the DPPt plotline into the story instead of having one or two episodes dedicated to it and then leaving it alone. This is interesting.

Good episode looks good.
Can't wait for the next one =D

Serebii has put up 3 new Japanese titles For next month:

569: Rival Trainer Jun Appears!
570: Hearthome Gym! vs Fantina!
571: Chaotic Melee at Canalave City!

A New Rival huh? If Jun is like Shinji this is going to be interesting but we dont need another "Silver" around xD.
Finally! Satoshi gets to challenge Fantina! Geez, what an elusive Gym leader. This should be good with her Ghost Pokemon, but I doubt she'll be like Morty.
Canalave City already?! Wow that's quick! I throught fillers would be in order after a gym battle episode. Nice.

October 15th, 2008, 08:07 AM

And I agree, Jorah. It took them 19 episodes between Crasher Wake and Fantina, but then (1-2?) episodes between Fantina and Bryon? :S

I see comments on more E4 members appears, see... No previous regions had Champions on anime, (IE: Gary wasn't Kanto champion, Lanche wasn't Johto champion, Steven hadn't any menctions of being the champion on hoenn), but now there's Cynthia, so, why not E4?
I think Sinnoh League will be more akin to the games.

Also, about this "New Rival Jun", I'm pretty sure it's Palmer's son.

DonRoyale
October 15th, 2008, 11:04 AM
Then there's the question of discussion:

With Dawn a part of the anime already, whose rival will this be? Ash's or Dawn's?

Argent Crusader
October 15th, 2008, 11:09 AM
Dawn have pretty much rivals, also Jun (probably Barry in US dub) is more the trainer type, being the Tower Tycoon's son doesn't fit in contests... So, I guess it will be Ash's rival.

Barry had REALLY better bash into everyone! And demanding £1,000,000! That is so funny! He'd better bash into Paul, his face would be so funny. It's actually an absolute surprise he's appearing at all.

Since it says rival trainer, he'll probably be Ash's rival. But how on earth are they zipping over to Canalave so quickly?


And I agree, Jorah. It took them 19 episodes between Crasher Wake and Fantina, but then (1-2?) episodes between Fantina and Bryon? :S

ALSO: (Gravy from Serebii)
So, I went on Jetix UK's 'Pokámon' website thanks to boredom and subliminal messaging from a certain television who shall not be named, and stumbled across a lengthy list of pokámon that are to appear 'in the new season'. All of them are correct so far, including the likes of Dusknoir, Lickilicky, Grotle, Jun's team, and if Adamant's Terebi-kun source is viable, Darkrai and Cresselia (The only ones left appear to be Rotom, Mamoswine and Magmortar).

Magmortar should be Magmar, it was a mistake

Newtype (the site that gave us the Grotle and Aaron summaries) have updated. I'm on a roll this week with Anime info, huh?

http://anime.webnt.jp/program/index.php?pg_page=tv_detail&detail=1588

Summaries for Darkrai vs. Cresselia, Rotom episode, and the Canalave Melee episode.

"The Yosuga Gym Match! (Satoshi) vs. Melissa!!"
"Satoshi is going to challenge the Gym Leader of the Yosuga Gym, Melissa. Satoshi is absolutely sure that his Buoysel will be able to respond to the Ganger Melissa has chosen as he starts to put the pressure on Melissa's Ghost-type. However, just as Buoysel is about to deliver the finishing blow, Ganger uses its Hypnosis attack on Buoysel!"

"The Chaotic Melee in Mio City!"
"After arriving in Mio City, Satoshi and his friends fall into one of the Rocket-Dan's traps and become separated from Pikachu and the others. While Satoshi and the other search for Pikachu-tachi, the Rocket-Dan's Nyasu appears and unexpectantly tells them that he wants to quit the Rocket-Dan and become their friend."

"Cresslia vs. Darkrai! / The Old Chateau and Rotom!"
"Satoshi and his friends go to the Mito Gym to sign up for a Gym battle, but they're told that the Gym Leader is out. After getting in touch with Orchid-Hakase, our heroes learn about the Mori no Youkan ("Old Chateau") and the delicious foods they have there. Satoshi-tachi go to the house to get some of this food, but it's closed. Satoshi and his friends are about to turn around to leave when..."

Apparently, it's supposed to be "The Old Gateau and Rotom!"

From Serebii:

Episode 574: The Way To Befriend Pokemon
Episode 575: Rampardos vs. Bastiodon!

Something tells me, in the latter, that Ash and co. want to challenge Bryon, but somehow, Roark comes in and fights him first. Afterwards, Bryon goes all "Bawww, I don't WANNA fight now, gtfo" and thus the crew go to Iron Island for the whole arc there (where Jun probably gets Riolu)

Thoughts?

lol. Team Rocket won't ever break up. Not until the end of the series, anyway. Anyway, this episode sounds quite interesting, here's the description

"The Rocket-Dan's Breakup!?"
The three members of the Rocket-Dan attack Satoshi and his friends in yet another attempt to capture Pikachu. The trio is blasted away by their target and, physically and emotionally drained, lands at a ramen shop. There, Musashi and Kojirou are surprised when they discover that the shop owner was one of their underclassmen from their days at the Rocket-Dan training facility.

So this (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Mondo) is what I instantly thought about when I read the word "underclassman"...

It is hard to translate from jap like i like doc brock jap title pacrishu has fever and two people take after or something like that in that case it had something to do with the episode but i never take jap titles to seriously it is a rough Translation so i wouldnt be surprized if butch and cassidy came make em fight and they split up and then jessie and james and meowth will get back together and then send butch and cassidy into orbit

I thought that the undesclassman already left the Rockets and became the ramen shop owner.

Well, it doesn't say the he has already broken away, it could be he's considering it or it's a story about when he did.

It would be interesting to see an episode about someone leaving an evil organization.

Episode 586: PokéRinger! Big Decisive Sky Battle!!

So, based on this, and the fact that lately they've been repeating things... I.E. Jessie's Dustox moving to Mate with a Dustox, similar to Butterfree, Mamoswine acting like Charizard, etc...

Am I the only one who forsees Staravia evolving into Staraptor during this episode? It would also explain why we saw Staraptor figurines for the Movie 12 toys, and keep with the semi repeating plots. Ash's flying "starter" evolves to it's final form in a Pokeringer Competition, similar to Swellow.

Actually, yes... that makes a lot of sense.
I would not be surprised if Staravia evolved into Staraptor in that episode.
The Japanese title even sounds like it could happen.
You can bet I'll be holding out for this episode!

Yeah I think so, because ash uses Staravia all the time.. Its got to evolve at some point:cheeky:

I think so too. Im just worriedd that too many of his sinnoh pokemon are evolving.

Ah, organ feces. You beat me to it. I was JUST about to post this very question.

I foresee it hapenning. After all, since Taillow evolved in the episode this mimics, it makes sense that Staravia will finally (please?) evolve.

It makes a lot of sense ;o

Well yeah of course the writers are going to use the exact same form of evolution that was used for Swellow.>_> I really hope it doesn't evolve...but it may...so I'm not happy.

BIG NEWS!!! Serebii.net has just released another Japanaese title that will come out in the near future. It seems it is about another one of those Pokemon Ringer contests they had, like the one back in the Hoenn. The title is : "Pokemon Ringer, Big Decisive Sky Battle!" If I were anyone else, I would say they just might be bringing this back to give Staravia a reason to evolve...what do you all think?

lol...IDK if this would be considered big news or not, but hey it is a new japanese title for the DP series! so...:D

I like how you think Serebii has released this title, as if they were the first to know. Especially as it was reported on Bulbagarden forums (http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/showthread.php?t=34886) a good twelve hours before Serebii 'broke the news', and was probably posted on 2chan a good time before that, even.

(In fact, it was posted about ten hours or so ago on this very forum. >>; )

I agree that an evolution could be on the cards. Having not seen the Hoenn saga I'm going on what I have read, but didn't Satoshi's Subame evolve after the original PokéRinger competition? The DP series has been quick to draw comparisons with events of earlier seasons, so an evolution wouldn't be a shock.

I hope it evolves soon! It's been Staravia for about almsot 100 episodes now.

Man, we finally save the poor Staravia from its distress...
I hope that episode comes sooner!

Well then thats what DP119 or 120? 120 got it. Anyway lol in 4 episodes i wonder whats goi8ng to happen. I suspect this episode a training episode of such for staravia for the gym battle coming soon and such and i wish it wont evolve and chimchar will. IEther way both will evolve sooner or later so theres a chance for one of the 2 to evolve. The other would come later.

Unlikely. What will probably happen is that, after failing to win the Sinnoh League, Ash/Satoshi will return to Eterna Forest for whatever reason, at which point Staravia will evolve in order to protect a wild flock of Starly and Staravia. At this point, Ash/Satoshi will decide to leave his new Staraptor with this flock for its continued protection, while making a promise to return that the writers will actually have no intention of following up on.

I'm hoping for an evolution for Staravia. Here's to hoping.

Artemis

I think this just may be the time where it happens...though I wonder IF he'll be smart enough to enter staravia OR gliscor, I just put that into perspective...lolz

but the reason why I stated serebii.net is because I use that as my primary news source...plus it was the first site I saw where it was stated...

Artemis

oh I see now...but yeah I definitely think this will be the episode where Staravia gets its time to shine and finally evolves! ...or, the writers won't do that and Ash will use gliscor istead for the pokeringer contest...but I think the first idea is better for this new episode title!

Totally posted this in the dub title thread on accident at first XD

Two New Titles have been revealed~ And they BOTH Air on my birthday :O

Episode 587: Crash! Mamoswine VS Aggron!
Episode 588: Teach Me! Pokémon!

Something tells me Crash! Will be Mamoswine's charizard moment... being beaten and hurt by aggron, dawn takes care of it, Mamoswine then starts listening to her, and he beats said aggron. (Yay for repeating storylines!) <_<

Not sure what Teach Me! Could be... possibly involving Candice?
