This was by far one of the worst shorts they've done to date. It was almost a rehash of ANA6 with the constant Maril putting Rocket Gang to sleep. The gag was fine for one short but bringing it back for another one was kind of bland. The plot just revolved around returning Unknown back to its home. Nothing really 'exciting' or unexpected happens in the whole episode unfortunately.

What... are they really gonna broadcast this episode instead of a regular Black and White episode, on the 20th of October? Or will there be two different shorts broadcast that day? I've never really been fond of Pokémon shorts, so I don't quite see the point here.

From the preview that aired on BW54, it appears the short will be broadcast in HD. This really is a kick in the pants to people that purchased the poor quality DVD earlier in the year. Only the one short will air on October 20th, 2011.

Only one short? Oh dear... I almost wish they didn't air anything at all. I really don't understand why they suddenly decide to air that short. Looks kind of random to me. If only it was to prepare something to air the two Rocket Gang vs Team Plasma episodes...

This short wasn't as bad as I expected, it was quite fun actually... though it was nothing really fancy. I just can't understand how they even sold this as a full-priced DVD (I certainly hope I'm wrong and the said DVD wasn't full-priced!).

@Sunain: the Marill gag itself is a rehash o the Jigglypuff gag, in the first series...

Actually, even though this short was quite nice, it's kinda sad to admit the most interesting part was... the preview, at the end. It really got me excited about the following episodes in the B&W series!

They didn't. The DVD contains both this episode and the two DP specials that aired at the beginning of the year.

I quite like this special myself. Like the other DP ANA specials, it's a ridiculous drug fantasy with no real plot, just a bunch of crazy antics. Great fun. (also, the Maril gag gets funny through repetition)

My bad, then. Guess I was confused about the DVD they showed off at the end of the episode.

Thanks for correcting me. :)

Well, the main feature of these DVDs is of course the short, but they always include an episode of the TV series as well (which is then skipped over on the standard rental DVDs).
