Energy, Translations, Ep

A year ago and two months ago, we tried to do a podcast, but it never was finished (well, it was, but…. oh, nevermind). Should PokeBeach do a podcast? Give your opinion in this story’s news thread. If we are to do one, it will not just be for the TCG (it’s so boring to talk about strategies for a whole podcast), it will be the Anime, Games, and other aspects of Pokemon.

Pokemon League Holo Energy – At Pokemon League, if you earn your season badge or complete the season’s challenge, you will receive a card with a redemption code. Using the redemption code and your “My Pokemon” account, you can receive a pack of holo energy containing one energy of each basic energy type. If you have already ordered the energy, you should be receiving them any day. Thanks to Sandslash7, we now have (semi-good) scans of each of the energy. Click the images below for larger pictures, and hover over the right or left side of the images to scroll through them.

Gathering the Gang of Four! – This episode was pretty good, with some breaking of the fourth law lines. Officer Jenny’s new voice actor sounds like the original Jenny from Season 1, and the music selection was excellent. One mistake I noticed, though, was that in the flashback scene with Charizard vs. Articuno, Ash was wearing his old Kanto clothes, even though the Charizard vs. Articuno episode was one of the first Battle Frontier episodes. That’s the second time the animators have incorrectly given him the correct clothes, the first time being in the “World of Pokemon” movie intro where he is wearing his official clothing when receiving Pikachu, even though he was in his pajamas. To watch the episode, [click here]. It will only be up for viewing for a temporary time. Next week, “The Final Frontier” airs on Cartoon Network at 9:30 AM, so be sure to catch it! It features Regice and Brandon in their last battle with Ash!
