Dub music? Damn. It's good to see Barry scared of God in this episode though. The battle itself was average really. Nothing too exciting.

Did you see the guy at the very beginning just behind Nando?

I love how Barry got spooked when he spotted Conway and then both where arguing that they were going to win the Sinnoh League and how Dawn just owned them.

That was funny...

I liked how Darkrai froze Barry's blood from inside it's pokéball (that's why it all went blue).

Aerial Ace on Quilava, something actually overcoming the normally match-ending sleep.....they've actually looked at the games for this one....

And that bit of fancy artwork at the end, with Darkrai looming ominously in the background? That looked cool.....needless to say, unlike the Indigo League and Ever Grande City tournament, I actually look forward to this....even though, like everyone else on the internet, I know the ending. I noticed how this is like Johto's league....more fuss is being made over it all. And it does promise us some epic battles like Charizard vs. Blastoise and Blaziken....

I could swear I watched this one in Japanese, but I can't seem to recall half of what happened in the dub >__>

Anyways, the battle was pretty cool. And I always like seeing Conway and Barry lightening up the episode ^__^ both of them in the same episode made my day. Barry: "WTFDAWNWHYUNOLISINUB-Oh hey, Ash is battling!" You go Barry.

And if only Meowth could be that intelligent every day. Team Rocket (the trio) could have exceeded Team Rocket (the origanization) by now economically if the had dedicated their lives to some sort of business instead of pumping money on the mechas for catching Pikachu >__>

He must've been bored because Staraptor's battle was way too short and Quilava's battle was skipped over. What was the point of evolving Quilava and giving it a battle that was mostly skipped over? Heracross's battle was alright though.

Nice battle between Ash and Nando. And I like TR's marketing strategy, even though they got the booth farthest away from the action. That was quite unfortunate...

Oooh, a mysterious trainer with a Darkrai! This is going to be fun.

Conway is like a...ninja! He shows up everywhere!

Silly Ash! Do you know that Magical Leaf almost never misses its mark?

What?!?! Nando has an Armaldo? And we thought that him having a Lopunny was a surprise...

The most epic part of the Ash/Nando battle was the match up between Kricketune's Fury Cutter and Heracross's Focus Punch. That was fun and I think Nando liked it. Sleep Talk was a good strategy on Ash's part.

I wish that Nando didn't have to face Ash really soon. He is one of my favorite characters in the anime. It's too bad he had to be eliminated.

Looking forward to the future battles of the Sinnoh League!

8/10

Nando (elim.)
Ash
Barry
Paul
Conway
Mysterious Trainer with a Darkrai

Yeah, after this the Sinnoh League begins to build up. I admit the starting battle between Ash and Nando could have been manipulated a lot better.

Still, I feel as though I enjoyed this episode more in the dub than I did in Japanese.

Funniest moment was Barry and Conway having their little spat, I agree. XD;

The best parts of this episode were the interactions between Barry, Conway, and Dawn. Gwah, those 3 along with Paul would make for a great show XD

- Ash couldn't figure out a strategy for himself >__>
- Good for Dawn noticing Lopunny
- Hehehe, Paul
- Paul: YOU BET RIGHT.
Wow, yelling o.o
- Pathetic XD
- BARRY
- No fine? o.O
- Conway too?? :DD
- Conway: I can answer any question you can make up...
so creepy XD It sorta makes me think of the geek way of saying "I can be anything you want me to be" XDD
- Barry talking about Takuto the Darkari trainer* no one said that sort of trainer would be here, someone deserves a fine!
TOO TRUE, BARRY! He was a cheat :(
- Everyone ignoring Barry XD And then he realises why XD "oh, whaddaya know, Ash is having a battle" he sounds so cute XD
- Oh wow, I love how Barry actually managed to screech when he said "I'M going to win!"
Dawn: Will you boys settle down?
Barry: Uhhh, yes ma'am
LOL. Conway's "heh heh" at Barry was the icing on the cake XD
- Huh, I remember whena Pokemon falling asleep meant that battle ended in the anime
- Conway: That's Sleep Talk. Even though a Pokemon's asleep, it will randomly use one of its moves *glasses brighten* Heh heh omg, he made that so creepy o.o

Music kept: (3)

TR Sneaking theme
Route 212
GS Opening theme

I was expecting them to keep more music for the league o.o
