I made this yesterday, but didn't put it up until today. When I made it, I did so before actually listening to the scene in question. Now that I've heard it, I can say with a fully-informed mind: the music was far too loud for what the animation was showing to be a tender moment. Though I know TPCi will fix it, I decided to do so as well by drawing from a soundtrack that's on a tier above anything Pokemon. I think it worked out fine. How about the rest of you?

I won't lie... They made Guzzlord seem as unnatural as possible. Coming pretty much out of nowhere... Eating literally anything, even moves... It's roars sounding like screams... I also think each mouth has a different voice. Black-masked Tapu Koko was right about getting some help.
Full summary and voice cast for SM102 (there will be a break the week after this episode)-
Takeshi and Kasumi have come to Alola! They enjoy all that Alola has to offer by joining the others in sightseeing, Maintain Surfing and the like! However, the evil clutches of the Rocket Gang descend upon these hours of enjoyment...
Summary: Takeshi and Kasumi have come to Alola! They enjoy all that Alola has to offer by joining the others in eating pancakes at Noa's, going shopping, and the like! They even go Mantain Surfing to a treasure island! The hours of enjoyment pass by way too fast... and then the Rocket Gang goes after the group. They close in on the group, attempting to steal their Pokémon using an all new Nyarth Robot! Note that there will be a break next week. The next episode airs Sunday January 6th 2019 at 6pm!
I like it when they use instrumentals of intro songs from previous series in the current one, because it's a nice reminder of them, but "XYZ" was one I was hoping they would stay clear from (by the way, the title of that track is actually "Satoshi-Gekkouga Appears!") because I know the XY stans have been desperately trying to gather any evidence they can find to prove that Serena and/or Gekkouga will appear in Alola and this just added to it. Giving that spotlight stealing, overrated, ninja frog that special transformation was by far the biggest mistake of the entire Pokémon anime, it brought out the worst in the fandom, people who only cared about 'epic battles' and not anything else, wanting Satoshi to be 'cool and serious' (aka; one of the most boring anime protagonists ever, because how dare a 10 year old child act his age) XY&Z was just a tainted series.
You can no longer enjoy a song that you like once it has been sullied by other people and/or when it's the theme of one of the worst things ever.
Satoshi's good friends! Takeshi & Kasumi have arrived! We definitely recommend watching Pokémon with your parents in 2019! First off, a duo dad and mom are familiar with will appear!!
Kasumi: A girl that used to travel with Satoshi and Takeshi Takeshi: He's currently studying to become a Pokémon Doctor!
These two have come to visit all the way from the faraway Kanto region. Takeshi is in really high spirits here, what kind of unusual object or scenery was it he saw...?
Takeshi has a fateful encounter in the Alola region?! Takeshi falls in love with pretty girls at first sight!! The object of his affection is Island Queen Lychee! And the best way to befriend her is with a battle!
Usokkie: The partner of Rock type Trainer Takeshi! Lugarugan (Midday Form): Lychee's partner is a Rock type as well! It's quite formidable!
The flames of passionate love blaze forth?! The two both specialize in Rock type Pokémon, so they're perfect for each other? ...or are they? See for yourself in the episode airing January 6th 2019!!! (airdate and time varies depending on region)
The ending theme will change with the episode airing Sunday January 13th!
The ending theme will change to the choir song "Kokoro no note", which is written and composed by Taiiku Okazaki, with the episode airing Sunday January 13th. The vocals are done by the Hino Nanaomidori Elementary School Choir, which took gold 6 years in a row in the Elementary School Division of the NHK All-Japan School Choir Competition! Come on, everyone, learn the song and try singing it with friends!
Title: Kokoro no note (The Notebook of the Heart) Lyrics/composition: Taiiku Okazaki Arrangement: Akimitsu Honma Label: SME Records
I expect an emotional song, from the title and a choir singing it, I'm glad, I've missed those types of endings, the last time we got it was in Best Wishes.
SM104: Research Projects on Poni Island! Find the Island King!!
SM103 What will be the outcome of Takeshi and Lychee's passionate battle?! Satoshi and the others have invited Takeshi and Kasumi to Alola. They've now decided to go to Akala Island, since Takeshi wants to meet Island Queen Lychee. And when Lychee learns Takeshi is a former Gym Leader, she challenges him to a battle.

It's off to Akala Island with Takeshi and Kasumi! A passionate battle between Island Queen Lychee and former Gym Leader Takeshi, both of the Rock type Trainers, breaks out!! And then the Rocket Gang shows up...
Summary: Takeshi and Kasumi have come to Alola, and today they and all the others are going to Akala Island! After they've all helped out at Kaki's farm, they decide to go meet Island Queen Lychee, Takeshi leading the way, burning with a desire to meet her as he is. Lychee seems bewildered at how excited Takeshi is, but once she learns that he was the leader of a Rock type Gym in the Kanto region, she gets really motivated for a battle, and challenges him to one. And then the Rocket Gang show up with a powered up robot...
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.
Mar 31, 2019 21:30:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was
Apr 1, 2019 23:27:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
