Wow, that was a very thorough analysis indeed. I could never write anything like that in a hundred years. I disagree with a couple of things in the analysis, but there was some really good stuff there that I'd never even thought of before. Color me intrigued.
XY041 The next challenge at the now furiously competitive Summer Camp is "PokéEnteering"! Eureka gets lost in the thick mist, but then she sees something deep in the forest... just what is it?
Summary: The Summer Camp has become furiously competitive Satoshi's and Tierno's teams are competing for the lead with the exact same number of points. The next program is "PokéEnteering", where one collects the stamps at the various checkpoint that make up the course before heading for the goal as fast as one can.
Both Tierno and Satoshi progress smoothly trough the checkpoints by working together with their respective teammates. However, after a while the mist grows thick and Eureka ends up getting lost. Will the others manage to find her while she's still safe!? And what is it she sees in the forest while lost...!?
XY043 Summary: "Right as the Gym match against Korrina at the Shalour Gym is about to start, Team Rocket steals their book of secrets." Blurb: "Pikachu goes up against Korrina using the "rhythm strategies" taught by Tierno."

Haha, so Pikachu will dance his way to victory? He's already done that way back in the beginning of Johto in that Bellossom episode. Not only that, but Ash also taught him to breakdance in Sinnoh. How about coming up with something new for a change, writers?
Yeah, these include Pikachu being the star of Gym Battles, Serena's character, that constant Ash glorification.....
It sure if nice to know people are no longer praising XY because it has flaws just like every other Pokémon series.
A clash between Electro Ball and Aura Sphere? It would be funny if those are the last two moves used by them, because those are also the final attacks used by Ash's Pikachu and Cameron's Lucario in the Unova League. Of course, at the time, Pikachu was weakened more than Lucario so Aura Sphere overpowered.

Oh I know all about the problems of the anime, how Ash won't win the Kalos League, then dump all his Pokemon at Oak's and move onto the next region. That's the thing, all these Pokemon have one region for screentime, whereas Pikachu has all of it, so I wouldn't mind if he took the back foot and let others have the glory. But then he wouldn't be getting money from toys. And we can't have that.
And Serena is a fine character that doesn't have much direction, which they're somewhat starting to address, it's okay to not have a dream that you'll spend as much time as there is budget going towards. It's nice to have someone who doesn't have a burning desire they'll spend their life on (to do with Pokemon of course).
And XY is much better than BW, which had its own good points (Cilan, rivals, fairly fast pace, interesting though unfortunately underused selection of Pokemon) so I can see why it's getting the praise, but of course it's not perfect. Looking forward to Serena catch her first Pokemon, finally.
The final day at the Summer Camp is a Team Battle! But the Rocket Gang suddenly appear and steal Tierno and the others' Pokémon! Will the group manage to safely retrieve Zenigame and the other Pokémon!?
Summary: The final day at the Summer Camp is a Team Battle! Satoshi and Tierno's teams are both in the lead with the exact same number of points, and the overall winner of the two will be decided in the final match! Before the finals start, Tierno and the others head to Joy to get their Pokémon treated.
But then, the Rocket Gang show up, having infiltrated the camp disguised as chefs! They end up making it off with Tierno and the others' Pokémon! Will the group manage to safely retrieve Zenigame and the other Pokémon!? And which team will win the Team Battle finals and be inducted in the Summer Camp's "Hall of Fame"!?
New title- XY045: Citron VS Eureka!? A Sibling Battle With Nyaonyx!!
ShiningStarlia: I remember her voicing a blind kid who was healed by Fat Buu back in Z. And that must've been like, almost 20 years ago I think!

Donkarasu: It's funny, despite Ribrianne getting so much hate (not me, I think she's an entertaining character and love the Magical Girl parody Toei added with her and her team mates) people were excited to hear that Veronica Taylor was voicing Ribrianne.
Dec 6, 2018 6:04:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: In a way though. I personally have no problem with her and think her magical girl parody is hilarious and her transformation is meant to look hideous that even in-universe Vegeta couldn't bring himself to punch her when she tried to use Rollout on him.

ShiningStarlia: Though considering how much screentime she soaks up, I can see where most of the complaints come from. Then again, one can say the same thing about the Saiyans (U6 and U7) so who am I to complain? Haha.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: I think the forum's banner pic should be changed to Tsareena's butt closeup from today's episode. Pokemopolis thrives on easy-to-take-out-of-context stuff like that.

Donkarasu: So have been hearing Movie 21 has a heart warming story, it's not another movie that shoehorns in a Mythical and/or Legendary Pokémon for the sake of views, but rather their use in the plot is respectable, all characters get to do something notable, etc.
Dec 9, 2018 9:41:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: While that's true, it did still default to the whole "mythical/legendary hates humans until it meets Ash and friends" formula. Some parts of the old formula just had to stick around.
Dec 10, 2018 21:52:31 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Everything else was fresh and well-done, though. And though I trash the music (the only weak point of the movie, and boy is it an Achilles' Heel; that is except for the dub's ending song), the movie itself is spectacular.
Dec 10, 2018 21:54:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Actual so-called-music that deserves to be called "noise" is whatever 4kids used in their dub for One Piece. Music you don't like, but can still clearly hear the instruments, should be called "bad music", calling it "noise" is just a petty insult.
Dec 14, 2018 12:09:50 GMT -4
Donkarasu: There were no instruments used for the 4kids' One Piece dub music, it was all synthesizers.
Dec 14, 2018 12:13:09 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also that dub of that thing which when I showed Ryu the Japanese verison of long ago he said it was fine, but when I brought it up again, Ryu got all aggressive and started saying the original version was bad, despite the dub having all the flaws.
Dec 14, 2018 12:17:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: You never showed me that thing any more than once. And also, you showed me it in a failed attempt to make me like something about the JP version.
Dec 14, 2018 12:29:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes I did actually, I showed it to you to show you that when the narrator started singing it wasn't like in Brother Bear, like you thought (when the song was put over one character explaining something to another) but rather she was singing with them.
Dec 14, 2018 18:16:26 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Only you believe it was to get you to like the original, while I was just correcting your misinformation.
Dec 14, 2018 18:18:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That first time was just a correction (and back then, the JP version hadn't fully earned my utter abhorrence). The second time was an attempt to sway me.
Dec 14, 2018 19:35:55 GMT -4
Donkarasu: No it wasn't, it was me having to get this thing out of my mind and so the best way was to let it out and share my thoughts with others. I mean by that logic, I guess you telling me that Popplio says "Arwoo" and Ashimari doesn't is you forcing me to like
Dec 15, 2018 6:14:45 GMT -4
Donkarasu: the dub voice and sway me away from the Japanese one, despite the fact that Popplio only goes "Pop! Pop!" and I have listen to Ashimari's voice more than enough to fully confirm it says what I said it does. But don't worry, I won't make that assumption.
Dec 15, 2018 6:26:40 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Oh and by the way, I do like the dub voice, but for a different reason from why I like the Japanese one.
Dec 15, 2018 6:30:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: All in all that was a good two parter: wish it lasted longer! And as for Dragonball Super, goodness it was great hearing Veronica Taylor again. She used bits of her May voice in the most recent dub episode.
Dec 16, 2018 12:35:04 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: HUGE dub-related news: Matori's dub name (or rather, only name since the dub kept her name as Matori) has finally been said in a dub episode.
