English Official Summary

The second round of the Nimbasa Battle Tournament is underway. Georgia and her Pawniard appear to have the upper hand against Ash and his Snivy—but with a couple of well-placed attacks, Snivy pulls off an impressive upset, and Ash is into the semifinals! Next up, it’s Cilan’s Stunfisk versus Luke’s Larvesta! At first, the filmmaker is nervous about going up against a Gym Leader, but when he confesses his fears, Cilan just can’t help offering his usual long-winded advice. Luke puts that advice to good use, defeating Cilan and advancing to the next round! Up next, it’s Stephan and his new Pokémon Sawk against Iris and her Emolga. Powerful and unrelenting, Sawk puts up a furious battle, aggressively attacking again and again! Iris responds by asking Emolga to send in a barrage of Attracts, and eventually Sawk is overwhelmed and paralyzed. One final Volt Switch finishes things off, and Iris moves on! The matchups are set for the top four: it’ll be Iris versus Luke and Ash against Dino in the semifinals, which are sure to be exciting!

French Official Summary

Le second tour du Combat du Club de Méanville-la-Vieille continue, et l’affrontement entre la Vipélierre de Sacha et le Scalpion de Juliette se poursuit. Mais la puissance de Scalpion s’avère insuffisante face aux attaques Lame-Feuille et Tempêteverte de Vipélierre. Ces mouvements finissent par permettre à Sacha de remporter la victoire, lui assurant ainsi une place en demi-finale. Didier est sélectionné lui aussi, puis c’est au tour de Rachid d’affronter Luc. Le cinéaste passionné manque un peu de confiance en lui, mais la « mauvaise habitude » de Rachid de donner à ses adversaires de précieux conseils, finit par permettre à Luc et à son Pyronille d’emporter la victoire ! C’est à présent au tour de Jules (dont personne ne semble être capable de prononcer le nom !) et de son nouveau Pokémon, Karaclée, d’affronter Iris et son Emolga. Karaclée est d’une puissance rare et il lance avec fureur attaque sur attaque ! Frustrée, Iris réfléchit à un mouvement que seule Emolga puisse utiliser... et finit par lui faire dresser un véritable barrage d’Attraction ! Karaclée tente de les détruire mais il finit par être submergé et immobilisé ! Victorieuse, Iris devra affronter Luc lors des demi-finales, tandis que Sacha aura Didier pour adversaire. De nouveaux combats passionnants sont en vue !

German Official Summary

Die zweite Runde des Kampfturniers von Rayono geht weiter und wir erleben den Kampf von Ash und Serpifeu gegen Georgina und Gladiantri. Doch obwohl Gladiantri sehr stark ist, können Serpifeus Laubklinge- und Bättersturm-Attacken doch noch das Ruder herumreißen. Ash ist damit der erste Teilnehmer, der ins Halbfinale einzieht. Nachdem Dino Ash ins Halbfinale gefolgt ist, heißt es nun: Benny gegen Luke. Luke scheint sehr unsicher zu sein, was seine Fähigkeiten betrifft. Doch Benny hat eine, wie er es selbst beschreibt, „schlechte Angewohnheit“: Er gibt seinen Gegnern immer jede Menge Ratschläge, wie sie das Blatt noch zu ihren Gunsten wenden können! Und so gewinnt Luke mit seinem Ignivor schließlich doch noch den Kampf! Als Nächstes tritt Stefan (dessen Name sich anscheinend niemand merken kann) mit seinem neuen Pokémon Karadonis gegen Lilia und ihr Emolga an. Schlagkräftig und erbarmungslos legt Karadonis einen furiosen Kampf hin und greift immer wieder unermüdlich an! Nach einigem Grübeln entscheidet sich Lilia für eine Attacke, die nur Emolga einsetzen kann, was dazu führt, dass Karadonis ein Trommelfeuer von Anziehung(s)-Attacken über sich ergehen lassen muss. Beim ersten Angriff kann Karadonis sich noch erfolgreich dagegen wehren, doch dann wird er von ihnen überwältigt und kann sich nicht mehr bewegen. Lilia hat gewonnen. Und in dem garantiert sehr spannenden Halbfinals treten nun Lilia und Luke und Ash und Dino gegeneinander an!

Italian Official Summary

Continua l’incontro, valido per il secondo turno del torneo del Club del Villaggio di Sciroccopoli, tra Ash e Snivy da una parte e Georgia e Pawniard dall’altra. Nonostante la potenza di Pawniard, gli attacchi Fendifoglia e Verdebufera di Snivy ribaltano la situazione di iniziale svantaggio e permettono ad Ash di vincere ed essere, così, il primo concorrente a passare alle semifinali. Dopo che anche Dino ha vinto il suo incontro, tocca a Spighetto e Luke. Luke sembra molto insicuro di sé, ma Spighetto, a causa di quella che lui stesso definisce una “pessima abitudine”, inizia a dare consigli all’avversario, al punto che, alla fine, è il Larvesta di Luke a vincere! Subito dopo, si sfidano Stephan (il cui nome nessuno è ancora riuscito a pronunciare correttamente), con il suo nuovo Pokémon Sawk, e Iris con Emolga. Forte e inarrestabile, Sawk si batte duramente, attaccando con aggressività. Iris, scoraggiata, cerca di trovare una mossa che solo Emolga possa usare. Alla fine, tenta con una raffica di attacchi Attrazione. Sawk cerca di bloccarli, ma alla fine viene sopraffatto e paralizzato. Iris vince, e nelle imminenti semifinali dovrà affrontare Luke, mentre Ash lotterà contro Dino.

Portuguese Official Summary

Enquanto o 2º round do Clube de Batalha Pokémon de Nimbasa continua, nos juntamos à batalha entre Ash e Snivy versus Georgia e Pawniard. Mas, apesar de Pawniard ser poderoso, o Lâmina de Folha e o Tempestade de Folha de Snivy mudam o rumo das coisas para a vitória, enquanto Ash se torna o 1º competidor a passar para as semifinais. Após Dino fazer o mesmo, é Cilan versus Luke. Luke parece inseguro de suas habilidades, mas Cilan, que como ele mesmo descreve tem o “péssimo hábito” de dar conselhos a seus oponentes, faz mudar o rumo das coisas e Larvesta de Luke sai vitorioso! Em seguida, é Stephan (que ninguém consegue pronunciar seu nome corretamente) e seu novo Pokémon, Sawk, contra Iris e sua Emolga. Poderoso e impiedoso, Sawk faz uma batalha furiosa, atacando agressivamente repetidas vezes! Frustrada, Iris pondera em usar algum tipo de movimento que só Emolga pode usar... o que resulta em uma barreira de atrações. Sawk dá um chega pra lá em todos eles, mas terminar dominado e paralisado no final. Vitoriosos, Iris versus Dino e Ash versus Luke, preparam-se para estar na emocionante semifinal!

Finnish Official Summary

Nimbasan Pokemonkerho-otteluiden toinen kierron jatkuu Ashin ja Snivyn ottelulla Georgiaa ja Pawniardia vastaan. Vaikka Pawniard on voimakas, Snivyn Leaf Blade ja Leaf Storm kääntävät tilanteen Ashin eduksi ja hänestä tuleekin ensimmäinen kilpailija, joka pääsee semifinaaleihin. Dinon selvittyä seuraavassa ottelussa myös semifinaaleihin, on Cilanin ja Luken ottelun aika. Luke ei ole aivan varma kyvyistään, mutta Cilanin ”huono tapa” antaa vastustajilleen neuvoja ratkaisee ottelun Luken ja Larvestan voitoksi! Seuraavaksi vuorossa ovat Stephan (jonka nimeä ei vieläkään kukaan osaa lausua) ja hänen uusi pokémoninsa Sawk vastassaan Iris ja hänen Emolgansa. Voimakas ja periksiantamaton Sawk ottelee hurjasti hyökäten aggressiivisesti yhä uudestaan ja uudestaan! Turhautunut Iris pohtii liikettä, jonka vain Emolga osaisi ja päätyy tekemään hurjan määrän Attracteja. Sawk torjuu niitä, mutta lopulta Sawk jähmettyy. Voitokas Iris saa semifinaaleissa vastaansa Luken ja Ash vastaansa Dinon, joten jännitystä on edelleenkin luvassa!

Spanish Latin America Official Summary

Mientras el segundo round del Club de Batalla Pokémon de Nimbasa continúa, nos unimos a la batalla entre Ash y su Snivy contra Georgia y su Pawniard. Pero, a pesar de que Pawniard es poderoso, los movimientos Hojas Navaja y Tormenta de Hojas de Snivy cambian las cosas a su favor, y Ash se convierte en el primer competidor en pasar a las semifinales. Después, Dino es el siguiente en hacer lo mismo, es Cilan contra Luke. Luke parece estar inseguro de sus habilidades, pero el “mal hábito” de Cilan de dar montones de consejos a sus oponentes cambia la situación, ¡y el Larvesta de Cilan resulta victorioso! A continuación, es Stephan (cuyo nombre nadie sabe pronunciar correctamente) y su nuevo Pokémon Sawk, contra Iris y su Emolga. Poderosa e implacablemente, ¡Sawk da una furiosa batalla, atacando agresivamente una y otra vez! Frustrada, Iris considera usar algún tipo de movimiento que sólo Emolga puede usar… lo que resulta en un bombardeo de ataques. Sawk se libra de ellos, pero termina abrumado y paralizado. Tras haber ganado, se enfrentarán Iris contra Dino y Ash contra Luke. ¡Parece que serán unas semifinales emocionantes!

Spanish Official Summary

Durante la celebración de la segunda ronda del Combate de Club de Mayólica, presenciamos el combate entre Ash y Snivy contra Georgia y Pawniard. Y aunque Pawniard es fuerte, el Hoja Aguda y el Lluevehojas de Snivy inclinan el combate a su favor y Ash se convierte en el primer competidor que pasa a las semifinales. Tras Dino, que también pasa a la siguiente ronda, es el turno de Millo contra Luke. Luke parece inseguro en cuanto a sus habilidades, pero la mala costumbre de Millo de aconsejar a sus oponentes cambia las cosas y el Larvesta de Luke termina siendo el ganador. A continuación, le toca a Stephan, cuyo nombre nadie consigue decir bien, y a su nuevo Pokémon Sawk, contra Iris y su Emolga. Sawk, poderoso e implacable, comienza un duro combate atacando con agresividad. Iris, desilusionada, se plantea usar algún movimiento que sólo Emolga sepa usar, lo que resulta en una gran descarga de Atracción. Sawk empieza a esquivar todos los ataques, pero termina sobrepasado y, finalmente, paralizado. Del grupo ganador, se enfrentarán Iris contra Dino y Ash contra Luke en unas semifinales que seguro que van a estar llenas de emoción.

Russian Official Summary

Dutch Official Summary

Terwijl de tweede ronde van het Nimbasa Pokémon Club Gevecht verder gaat, zien we het gevecht van Ash en Snivy tegen Georgia en Pawniard. Pawniard is sterk, maar kan niet tegen Snivy’s Bladmes en Bladstorm op. Ash wint en is de eerste deelnemer die doorgaat naar de halve finale. Nadat Dino ook door is, moet Cilan het tegen Luke opnemen. Luke is onzeker over zijn vaardigheden, maar doordat Cilan hem advies geeft wint Luke met Larvesta! De volgende zijn Stefan en zijn nieuwe Pokémon Sawk, tegen Iris en haar Emolga. Sawk is meedogenloos en sterk en begint een heftig en agressief gevecht door keer op keer aan te vallen. Iris is gefrustreerd en besluit een zet die alleen Emolga kan te gebruiken… wat resulteert in een versperring van Verleidingen. Sawk wordt overweldigd en raakt verlamd. Tijdens de halve finale moet Iris tegen Dino en Ash tegen Luke vechten. Dat kan niet anders dan spannend worden!

Norwegian Official Summary

I det andre runde i Nimbasa Klubbkamp fortsetter, går vi inn i kampen mellom Ash og Snivy mot Georgia og Pawniard. Men selv om Pawniard er veldig sterk, er det Snivys Leaf Blade og Leaf Storms trekk som blir tungen på vektskålen når Ash blir den første deltaker som går videre til semifinalen. Etter at Dino blir den neste som gjør det samme, er det Cilan mot Luke. Luke virker usikker på sine evner, men Cilans selvbeskrevne dårlige vane av å gi mange gode råd til motstanderen snur utviklingen, og Lukes Larvesta går seirende ut! Neste ut er Stephen(som det visst ikke er noen som klarer å uttale navnet til) og hans nye pokémon, Sawk, imot Iris og hennes Emolga. Sterk og ubarmhjertig, legger Sawk opp til en voldsom kamp, hvor den angriper aggresivt igjen og igjen! Frustrert grubler Iris på å bruke en type trekk som bare Emolga kan bruke, som resulterer i en bølge med Attract. Sawk hamrer løs på dem, men ender til slutt opp overmannet og paralysert. Iris går seirende ut og skal møte Luke i semifinalen, mens Ash skal møte Dino

Swedish Official Summary

När den andra ronden av Nimbasa Pokémon Klubb-strider fortsätter, kommer vi in i striden mellan Ash och Snivy mot Georgia och Pawniard. Men trots Pawniards kraftfullhet, rör Snivys moves Leaf Blade och Leaf Storm om i grytan och leder till vinst när Ash blir den första tävlanden som går vidare till semifinalerna. Efter Dino är det Luke mot Cilan. Luke verkar osäker på sina förmågor, men Cilans självbeskrivna dåliga vana att ge en massa råd till motståndare, vänder vinden och Lukes Larvesta går ur den som vinnare! Näst på tur är Stephan(vars namn ingen verkar kunna uttala rätt) och hans nya Pokémon Sawk, mot Iris och hennes Emolga. Kraftfull och obeveklig, ger Sawk en hetsig strid, och attackerar aggressivt om och om igen! Frustrerad funderar Iris på att använda någon sorts move som bara Emolga kan använda… vilket resulterar i en störtflod av Attract. Sawk bankar loss på dem, men blir slutligen överväldigad och paralyserad som resultat. Som vinnare går Iris till att möta Dino och Ash ska möta Luke i de garanterat spännande semifinalerna!

Danish Official Summary

Den anden runde af Nimbasa Pokémon klubkampen fortsætter, og vi er midt i en kamp mellem Ash og Georgia. Selvom Pawniard er stærk, er Snivys Leafblade og Leaf Storm er for stor en mundfuld for Pawniard, og det ender med at Ash løber med sejren og er nu i semifinalen. Efter Dino også har vundet, er det Cilan mod Luke. Luke synes usikker på sine egne evner, men Cilan giver masser af gode råd til sin modstander, og det gør udfaldet. Luka og Larvesta vinder. Nu er det Stephans tur (hvis navn ingen synes at kunne udtale korrekt), og hans nye Pokémon Sawk. De skal op imod Iris og hendes Emolga. Sawk er stærk og udholdende, og kæmper hårdt. Iris er frustreret og prøver at finde på et træk som Emolga kan bruge, og det ender med at hun burger en masse Attracts. Sawk slår dem alle amen væk, men ender med at blive helt lammet og udmattet som følge deraf. Iris vinder, og nu skal hun op imod Dino, mens Ash skal kæmpe mod Luke!

Script Error

As it was pointed out in the previous two episodes, the name of the tournament in the Japanese original was based off of Don George's name while the name of the tournament in the English dub was based of the name of the Pokémon Battle Club.

Narrator: It's the exciting Nimbasa Pokémon Club Battle, and it's off and running at a fever pitch!
Narrator Japanese: At the battle tournament hosted by Don George of the Pokémon Battle Club, the "Don Battles" for short.
(ナレーター): ポケモンバトルクラブ ドン・ジョージ主催バトルトーナメント大会。 縮めて ドンバトル。

01:10

Script Error

Georgia in the English dub doesn't call for the move Guillotine (ハサミギロチン) like Langley does in the Japanese original.

Georgia: Oh yeah! Let's finish this up!
Langley: Finish it! Guillotine!
(ラングレー): 決まれ!! はさみギロチン!

02:01

Script Error

The Japanese original had Don George using the English words 'pinch' (ピンチ) and 'chance' (チャンス) twice in the same sentence. The English dub completely changed the original Japanese line but replaced it with a line that had a similar intended meaning but the whole idea of a 'chance opportunity' going two different ways was lost.

Don George: You think things will zig, but in the blink of an eye, they zag!
Don George Japanese: Yeah. A pinch might lead to a chance while a chance might lead to a pinch.
(ドン・ジョージ): うむ まさに ピンチはチャンスチャンスはピンチだったりする。
02:28

Script Error

Dent's sommelier dialog was changed in the English dub and removed the English descriptive words 'marriage' (マリアージュ), 'taste' (テイスト), 'fighter' (ファイター), that were used in the Japanese original. Cilan's dialog ends up missing the description of Satoshi's Tsutarja's Leaf Blade fighting against Langley's Komatana's blades.

Cilan: Truly a delicious battle between gallant warriors, sparring back and forth, making my spirit tremble! With a combination of flavors that ranged from subtle to the boldness of red-hot and spicy!
Dent: Really, the proud fighters created a sharp marriage between blade and blade. It was a hot, thrilling taste that made us viewers' souls shake.
(デント): まさしく誇り高きファイターによる刃と刃の 切れ味鋭いマリアージュ!見ている僕たちの魂をも震わせる熱く胸躍るテイストだった!

03:20

Script Error

Dent said nothing about Iris and Langley becoming 'friends' in the Japanese original like Cilan implies in the English dub. He just says that there is a possibility that they might like each other as rivals. Being a rival is a lot different than being a 'best friend'. Cilan doesn't even bring up the point of them being rivals in the English dub.

Cilan: The worst enemies can make the best friends! Don't give it a second thought.
Dent: Dislike is just another form of liking. In other words, a requirement for a good rivalry.
(デント): 嫌い嫌いも 好きのうち。よきライバルの条件さ。

03:58

Culture Edit

Jigoku mimi (地獄耳) is the Japanese term for "hell ears", people that have very good hearing but not just any kind of good hearing, it's for people who never fail to hear others bad-mouthing them or telling secrets that they don't want known.

Iris: Good hearing...
Iris Japanese Translation Literal: She has hell ears...
Iris Japanese Translation: She has keen ears...
(アイリス): 地獄耳…。
04:22

Culture Edit

Don George and Takemitsu make a pun on the tournament's name, saying the Don Battles (ドンバトル) go steadily (dondon どんどん) on. The English dub just removed Takemitsu line here and made a longer line for Don George.

Character English Translation Japanese
Don George Right, that's because exciting battles are what the club battle is all about! Yeah, hot Don Battles. And they continue on and on; うむ 熱きドンバトル。 ドンドン…。
Takemitsu *No dialog* on and on go the Don Battles. どんどん進むよ ドンバトル。

04:26

Script Error

Dent specifically states he added extra chlorophyll (葉緑素) into the mix while Cilan says he added extra vegetables.

Cilan: And to give Grass-types a real energy boost after battling, I added lots of extra vegetables!
Dent: Moreover, to compensate for the energy a Grass type loses in battle I put stronger chlorophyll into the mix.
(デント): 更に バトルで失った草タイプのエネルギーを補えるよういつもより 濃い葉緑素をミックスしてあるのさ。

04:28

Script Error

The English dub yet again adds more French dialog for Burgundy that wasn't part of Cabernet's dialog in the Japanese original. Cabernet says Dent cannot do proper 'tastings' (テイスティング) in the Japanese original but the dialog was changed to have a different meaning for 'taste' in the English dub as Burgundy meant Cilan's sense of taste and not his 'tasting' ability to determine compatibilities.

Burgundy: Dommage! Forced to eat food made by a connoisseur who has no taste at all has to be the saddest thing I've ever seen! My pauvre petit Snivy!
Burgundy French Translation: What a pity! Forced to eat food made by a connoisseur who has no taste at all has to be the saddest thing I've ever seen! My poor small Snivy.
Cabernet: Ah, it must be so painful to be forced to eat something made by a Sommelier who can barely do proper tastings... Poor Tsutarja!
(カベルネ): あぁ… ろくに テイスティングもできない ソムリエの作ったものを食べさせられるなんてさぞかし つらいでしょうに…。かわいそうな ツタージャ!

05:17

Script Error

Langley specifically tells Iris not to record fake footage of her. Georgia calls it an amateur film instead but doesn't tell her to stop making the fake footage.

Character English Translation Japanese
Georgia Look, you're just making some dumb amateur video. Don't film fake footage without asking! 勝手にインチキ映像作ってんじゃないの!
Iris Oh, so you're a director now, are you? I want you to call it a "performance". Got a problem? 演出と言ってほしいわね。 悪い?
Georgia All I know is this stinks! I wouldn't call it a movie, I'd call it a waste of time! I totally have a problem! You call that a performance?! It's just nonsense! 全然悪い! 何が演出よ!ただのデタラメでしょ!

07:03

Script Error

Cilan's introduction of Muggyo is very basic and less 'descriptive' compared to Dent's in the Japanese original.

Cilan: And now, presenting my powerful Stunfisk!
Dent: Now, savor the fertile aroma of the earth, Muggyo!
(デント): 豊穣たる大地の香り マッギョ!

09:15

Script Error

Takemitsu in the Japanese original specifically states that Flamethrower could possibly do a lot of damage but Freddy in the English dub states its an 'intense shroud of fire' dropping the reference to the move.

Freddy: And Stunfisk is trapped in an intense shroud of fire!
Takemitsu: A powerful Flamethrower engulfs Muggyo!
(タケミツ): 強烈な火炎放射がマッギョを包みました!

09:49

Script Error

The English dub removes the move (技) reference that was in the Japanese original.

Georgia: The combination of Bug-types and Fire-types is something to consider...
Langley: Geez, the combination of Bug type and Fire type moves should be considered carefully.
(ラングレー): まったく 虫タイプと炎タイプの技の組み合わせも考えものね。

10:45

Script Error

Dent in the Japanese original stated that watching Merlarva would 'intoxicate everyone who sees it' but the English dub removed that reference and replaced it with 'a recipe anyone could love'. Obviously the drunk reference from the sommelier wasn't something they wanted to keep in the English dub.

Cilan: And judging from its ability to stand up to our Water-type attack, I can sense its formidable strength, tempered by its time working on a movie set, a recipe anyone could love!
Dent: Its strength, trained up through filming movies, becomes fragrant its persistent flavor, which even opposes Water type attacks boldly, intoxicates everyone who sees it.

Apparently, Ash in the English dub is intoxicated as he thinks Stunfisk can fly. Satoshi in the Japanese original said it jumped.

Ash: Stunfisk flies?
Satoshi: Ah, it jumped!
(サトシ): あっ 跳んだ!

11:38

Script Error

Apparently Cilan is intoxicated as well as he thinks his Stunfisk can learn to fly also. Apparently he has Dumbo fantasies while training. Stunfisk cannot learn the move Fly. Dent says nothing about flying in the Japanese original and instead states that his Muggyo can handle being up in the air after jumping up high.

Cilan: Even Stunfisk, normally confined to the ground, can learn to fly with enough care and training!
Dent: A Muggyo that crawls over the ground can come to handle space as well, depending on the way it's trained!
(デント): 地を這うマッギョも 鍛え方次第で空間を使いこなせるようになるんだ!

Script Error

The English dub yet again adds more French dialog for Burgundy that wasn't part of Cabernet's dialog in the Japanese original. Cabernet also comments in English in the Japanese original that the Dent's battle was 'bad taste' (バッドテイスト). Cabernet also quotes Dent's earlier line in the Japanese original but Burgundy doesn't quote Cilan in the English dub.

Burgundy: Oui, although Cilan did lose. He's always talking about evaluating challengers, n'est pas?
Burgundy French Translation: Yes, although Cilan did lose. He's always talking about evaluating challengers, isn't that so?
Cabernet: Yay! He lost, what bad taste! "My usual habits compelled me to test the challenger", my foot!
(カベルネ): や~い! 負けちゃって バッドテイスト。何が 「いつものクセで チャレンジャーを試す展開になっちゃったかな」よ。

16:43

Script Error

Don George moments before Cilan's comment says that it 'Looks like a real manly battle!' to which Cilan comments that 'This could leave a bad taste in Iris's mouth!'. The English dub added the 'in Iris's mouth' part as Dent in the Japanese original said that the 'taste' of the battle was getting bitter (苦い).

Cilan: This could leave a bad taste in Iris's mouth!
Dent: This taste is getting painful...
(デント): これは苦いテイストになってきた…。

Script Error

The English dub skipped a line where Takemitsu states that Dageki was unfazed by Static.

Takemitsu: Dageki is unfazed by Static!
(タケミツ): 静電気をものともしない ダゲキ!

Yup, as I expected, the last episode cliffhanger was really useless. The beginning didn't even look like it was the conclusion of any sort of cliffhanger. But other than that, this was a pretty decent episode. I'm so disappointed that Dent lost his match, since he was clearly more experienced than Luke.

As for the battle between Kenyan and Iris, it may have been predictable (the next episode title gave it away she was going to win), but still quite fun to watch. It looks like Emonga has become a bit mroe docile, and listen to Iris's order pretty much all the time now.

What really annoyed me about the English dub was the simple things that were changed or skipped in this episode. The Guillotine move not being mentioned, Flamethrower not being mentioned and Static as well. Those are important points in a show like Pokemon!

I agree. I looked at the edits and it seems strange that the dub would replace the English phrases that are used in the original with something else entirely.

It was rather disappointing to see Dent lose to Luke but I must say the Melarva was pretty cool. The Maggyo in the air was also pretty cool.
I liked how they showed how strong Dageki was in this episode, especially when he was destroying the hearts from Attract. He's a pretty formidable opponent in the games too, I think. But eventually the Static took its toll, which was realistic.
Overall this episode just made me want to find out what happens at the end even more. It would have been funny to see Emonga use Volt Switch and get Iris disqualified, but I guess this time she listened.
