    Here is where you can discuss Evolution angst for Dawn's Piplup in "Stopped in the Name of Love."

    My review to come forthwith.

    (I have a rental computer for a few weeks, so I figured to do the discussion, while I can. I'll be around quite a bit, now.

    Yes, I know there may be CN scheduling wankery with this one, but we must press forward.)

    Huzzah, a non-ugly thread title. Why must Piplup have a B button? D:

    - It's like Barry ran into Ash in purpose XDDD
    - I just realised...Barry was in episode in Japanese this week, and Barry is in an episode in the dub this week. Coincidence loves me ~
    - Ah, so Barry and Kenny aren't best friends, they just met...good.
    - Kenny sounds different again
    - What's with all this ugly dub music
    - Pokemon pingpong...
    - Piplup, stop taking screentime so we can see more of Barry.
    - Urk, I wish it would evolve so we didn't have such a screechy voice
    - Hahaha, I thought Barry was pushing all Ash, Kenny and Brock for a second XD
    - Wow, it's pretty funny how it randomly got stuck at the top of the web...reminds me of the first DP episode
    - Hahaha, Piplup's face XD
    - I wonder how much money Barry would have if he fined them and got the money...
    - Jeez, where's the Japanese music?
    - Flashback ~
    - I wish Barry would give them some idea how much he'd fine them XD
    - Thank you for interrupting them, Barry :D
    - Ooh, Dawn actually sounds angry. I don't know why when she could get rid of Piplup...
    - James: I don't like his shirt XDDD

    Music kept: (7)

    Piplup runs off
    Sinnoh Team Rocket Motto Theme
    Pikachu using Thunderbolt
    Piplup uses Whirlpool
    Piplup tries to stop evolving after battling
    Shin Satoshi no Theme (TPCI usually cut this theme)
    Piano music after Team Rocket blasts off (what is this theme??)

      Ash should tell dawn about his Bulbasaur refusing to evolve.
      Perhaps Ash could find an Everstone for Pikachu.

      All in all, I liked it.

        I haven't had chance to watch the episode yet, but I love the episode title.

        I liked Barry's line when Team Rocket came in, "You're Team Missile right?".

        If "The Supremes" weren't so old they'd probably take this to court.

        I'm excited to see this Ping-Pong tournament, since Pokemon normally evolve in tournaments in the D/P episodes.

          Man, that would be awesome, wouldn't it?

          Anyway, I thought the same semi-parallels with Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden, as DoubleWide observes. Gives DoubleWide a cookie.

            It was a nice episode. I like the new title screen. I don't think I mentioned that last week. I'm glad Piplup didn't evolve. Seeing Dawn carry a Prinplup on her head would be pretty weird. Team Rocket's Piprinpoleon (?) machine was so stupid looking I couldn't help but laugh...

            There's also the piece that plays when Piplup runs out the window from Dawn in the room. I think it's from the 4th Movie.

            Also, the piano music is from the third Pikachu movie short (the one with the Pichu Brothers in the city)

            I heard the one when Piplup ran off, I'm not sure why it's not in my list...hmm. Oh, I haven't watched any of the Pokemon shorts.

              I didn't know that there was such a thing as a Rent-a-Com.

              As long as Pikachu stays away a Thunder Stone he won't need one. He's carried a Thunder Stone for 500 episodes without a hitch anyway.

              I expect some people to say "Stop! In the name of love!" like someone on Sppf.

              Spoiler:
              I hate that episode. The dumbest event the writers did this saga.


              Kenny's voice was weird in this episode. Well, it sounded too similar to Zoey's voice. Ms. Krempa why do you sound like Ms. Williams in this episode? Whatever. At least they gave us an explanation for why Piplup, at this point, will not evolve. They got that out of the way at least. It was a creative way to stop evolution using Bide which I haven't seen in a while. Good episode which isn't a filler.

                BARRY!! He bumps into Ash randomly just like in Diamond and Pearl. xDD
                And using Bide to stop evolution? Nice connection to the games. (Bide:anime; press B;games)

                "I don't like his shirt." Funniest thing James has said in a while. No, forever!!

                Rating: 10/10!! Hopefully next week will be good.

                  Rent-A-Center, actually. You just need to know where to look in the Yellow Pages.

                  So, Ping-Pong tour, eh? Man, I have been away. Heh.

                    reminds me of R.Kelly's song Step in the name of love
                    but I was really hoping to see Piplup finally evolve into Primplup.
