    Episode N 012-14/BW Season 2 036-38/BW 120-122

    Summary
    Satoshi-tachi finally make it to Dr Araragi's excavation of the White Ruins. N reappears, Plasma attacks, Handsome is back, Rockets are around, things happen.

    Airdate
    The White Ruins! Satoshi VS N!! - 4 April 2013 [Japan]
    Plasma-dan Attacks! Ceremony of Revival!! - 11 April 2013 [Japan]
    Reshiram VS N! Beyond Truth and Ideals!! - 18 April 2013 [Japan]

    The White Ruins! Yeah, this episode hasn't aired yet, but let's get in some speculation! That's what these threads were originally for. And anyway I want to talk about this one even though I've only seen the preview.

    But oh gosh it's looking amazing and exciting and wow. My favourite professor is back and being ridiculous again~ And drama and wow. I'm not sure how much Satoshi VS N there will actually be though- from the preview it seems like they have an initial argument, but then later they're being all buddy-buddy by the campfire? And I'm going to assume the Goloog is the protector of the ruins because you know it was rampaging a bit and the Gobit path was always the correct one in the ruins. And it looks like Handsome is back in a new disguise.

    just wow guys i'm excited

        Yeah it looks like they'll be fighting. A bit. Sort of. More like arguing. But only for a short amount of time as far as I can tell from the preview? idk man it seems weird.

          If they are really gonna fight this time which I am sure this has 40 % chance then we will finally see maybe Zorua of N or some other unique pokemon (maybe Zoroark) which has not yet made it's anime debut

            Honestly I doubt they'll be having a Pokémon battle. It looks more like an interrupted argument. Anime!N doesn't seem to use Pokémon at all; the only one that's battled for him so far has been the wild Wargle he rescued from Plasma.

            ^Pretty much this.
            Anime N doesn't battle with Pokemon. He hates Pokemon battles from the bottom of his heart.

              Yeah it could be like an argument or maybe both battling Team Plasma in a different way. Ash with his usual Poke Battle while N and you know what he does just blocking others with his hands. Lol

                - aaaa I'm happy to see Papa Araragi ♥♥♥
                - whoops Plasma spies
                - whoops Rockets
                - this dude driving them is like super suspicious but is he Handsome or is he a Plasma spy?
                - oh nvmd that's def Handsome. those eyes hahaha
                - okay that's a familiar looking setup in the ruins
                - don't touch it Papa Araragi jeez what are you doing
                - aw N and Mebukijka
                - omg N when Satoshi says they're friends aw bby ;;
                - N RUNNING BACK TO HELP SATOSHI AND THEM REACHING OUT TO EACH OTHER IS THE CUTEST THING OMG HELP
                - HE DROPPED THE LIGHT STONE IN FAVOUR OF SATOSHI OMG THE CUTE
                - and Iris about to cry and Dent super upset omg ;;
                - no Plasma D:
                - right when they're having emotional trouble worrying about Satoshi and N
                - I really wish I knew enough to understand this heart-to-heart Satoshi and N are having
                - YEAH GO HANDSOME

                Holy wow that was good omg. As predicted, there was minimal argument between Satoshi and N- like way too little to even warrant the title. Also predicted: Handsome's return. And wow I just can not wait to see this subbed because there's a lot of obvs important dialogue in here that I can't understand and it would be really cute and really distressing in place and wow yeah great episode. :D Also, preview for next week!

                and wow you can not even tell me that doesn't look amazing wow I mean Lizardon there and Pika being controlled and Handsome being awesome and Ghetsis there aaaa

                  I should really watch this to add something to your summary, Anna, but from what I read, it seems to be pretty cliche episode... :D

                    Ooh don't even rely on my summaries at all. They're really bad and only there because we should probably have one. It wasn't cliche afaik! I found it to be a pretty cool story which was well-executed. Except for the Satoshi VS N part which... didn't happen... but I wasn't expecting it to anyway haha.

                      Yeah those japanese really add strange episode titles. By the way things would become real interesting in upcoming two episodes

                      Actually USA episodes have weird titles...

                      @Anna: Well the part "We are friends, let's not battle" is pretty cliche =D

                        Yeah true, but it's still surrounded by a story and situation that is quite different.

                        Please stay on topic guys - discuss the episode itself in some way in your post.

                        Can't wait for those final two episodes to premier, in the episode "Plasma-dan Attacks! Ceremony of Revival!!", at least from the preview Ghetsis will make his appearance - really hate that guy (just because he is part of the bad guys), and the final one "Reshiram VS N! Beyond Truth and Ideals!!" really hoping that Reshiram makes his appearance and not just flashbacks.

                        I been trembling with excitement all week - and will be the same next week (having a hard time concentrating.)

                            Nope, Genesect will not be appearing in the regular anime as far as I can tell, but it will feature in movie 16 which comes out on July 13. [thread for that is here if you wanna talk about it~]

                              Just saying this because I saw something about it in Bulbapedia.

                                Source it or it didn't happen.

                                Seriously, Bulba and the anime itself have no mention of Genesect appearing in Episode N. The finale is all about N and Reshiram.

                                  There was something on Bulbapedia, but it basically went like this:

                                  "Corless looks down at his digital pad, presses a few buttons, Genesect's specs came up, Corless smiled." There were supposed to be clips from the movie added in as a sneak peek. I think that was Japanese advertisement only though. I don't think the episode actually air any of that and it was posted in some magazine.

                                  I don't recall seeing it in the actual Anime but it could be one that hasn't aired yet too. But Genesect himself isn't in the anime. Just like they didn't bring Brock and Misty back during the Kanto fair, they were just redrawn memories.

                                  I don't think it was in the final episode though. I definitely want to watch this one though. N using the stone and awakening Reshiram. Seems like an appropriate end. The Anime starts off with Zekrom and ends with Reshiram.

                                    Well yeah, there are the little glimpses from N and Achroma, but appearing in the anime properly, no.

                                    Speaking of Zekrom though~~ where's he been? I'm wondering if he's going to come back or not in these episodes, because it seems like he's kind of unresolved at this point.

                                      Yeah he disappeared after the first episodes. It seems unfair to me. At least they should have shown him more. And it could have easily fitted in the upcoming N's arc episodes

                                      Yeah, I agree... it could have been done better... but we have seen Ho-Oh also only once in Kanto and we know they are bonded as well.

                                        Ho-oh showed up twice more after that, though. And its territory is kind of... everywhere. Zekrom feels like it's very Unovan and wouldn't stray far, you know?
