Lilypad Contest Time!

Also, it appears that like DP136/DP142 were, all original music being kept.

Wow. Ballistic Mamoswine... That was pretty intense. Dawn took her loss pretty well.

I kinda have a theory... You know how TPCi started phasing in more silence in the background (and keeping more original music in general) around the later-middle of Battle Dimension? Maybe they're doing the same thing here with keeping whole episodes alone... I dunno. XD

Pretty typical Dawn-Contest episode; boring. Other than James actually showing he's actually a really good battler. The one redeeming factor.

Again James shows how talented he can be if only he didn't always hold back.

Mamoswine losing control and going on a rampage is typical? Dude, it's the first time it has ever happened at all in a contest.

Im not as pissed off as I thought but it's still ridiculous. I'd rather see James do contests anyway... If she WON the Grand Festival, Pokemon would be teaching bad morals to children though XD

- Haha, Cynaquil has more personaliy than Ash's
- Urgh, Piplup is annoying...
- Meh, I don't like Dawn's dress much
- Pearlshipping fail
- LOL James as Jessie
- lol at how the dress is empty where her boobs are suppose to be XD You would think with something like Pokemon they would just skim over that...
- Haha, I see, the ramen from that past episode...
- Haha, they're bribing the judges with food XD
- Just thought...this is the firs time James has cross-dressed in *ages* XD
- GSC Wild Pokemon battle theme :D
- lol how can you steal Ice Shard XD
- Extra points for blowing up the judge box? :D
- Urgh, no, she should NOT have sued Piplup this time, Lyra >_<
- WOW, Jessalina won XD
- I can't believe no one found out James was a guy XD

Lol. This ep was pretty good. *prays to god Lyra doesn't start doing Contests*

This is the first time in a while that I'm actually glad for Team Rocket. But, James sounds HORRIBLE as a girl. o.O

Dawn is so forgiving...
Rating: 9/10!!

Now, can we please get back to gym battles??

I love the fact that Carnivine keeps biting James on the head. It's amazing how he keep finding grass types who love him so. I had a dog who would lick me on the face then very gently bite me on the ear, I called them "kissy-bites."

Good episode in my opinion, nice to see Jessie, James and Meowth win something.

Overall, I'll give it a 8.5/10

Since it evolved into a Swinub, that was very clearly bound to happen, yes.

I loved this episode. It was awesome to see James battling and not having to hold back, he's an awesome battler. (Battler? Is that the word?) Plus, he won. Yay! If James wasn't in Team Rocket and took training seriously, he'd be an awesome trainer. I'm kind of a Rocketshipper too so I enjoyed all the touching and hugging going on between Jessie and James in this episode. xD

I don't watch these new episodes a lot (I watched this cuz it's sort of TR-centered) but I enjoyed it. But, does anyone know why Kotone/Lyra calls Dawn "Dame" or "Dane" or whatever she says? O_o

It was the first time in an official setting anyway. And that's evolving into Mamoswine.

Im loving the nostalgia blast from the music. From the beginning of the show I kinda had a hunch that Dawn wasnt going to win this contest. If my memory serves me right, I believe that May had the same problem in the hoenn saga. Anyways it was an O.K episode, but I hope that next saturdays episode will be better than this one.

I really loved this episode, Pearlshipping hints tons.
Brock's a Pearlshipper huzzah!
James was really funny here and Dawn's appeal was good this time.
I'm sure soon shey'll get her 5th ribbon. She needs to get better.
Ash is still confused about love, hey'll get there some time soon.

Your Dogasu episode comparison. Enjoy his observations, particularly about the cropping issue.

. Watch the early episode "battle aboard the st. Anne." More backup to your James opinion. On topic:wow. Just when I thought contests couldn't get any more ridiculous, "jessilina" comes along... someone teach that judge another word. REMARKABLE!!!! Lastly, that was the most miserable attempt at shipping ever. Ash is DENSE...
