"Pokemon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu" - finally!!!!!!
Kimberly | 10/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Despite the limited information (and none on Amazon) online, it would only make sense for the skipped two-part Riolu special to be included on this third and final box set for the Pokémon DP Battle Dimension season. Not only does it finish out the season with the remaining 16 episodes, the second disc (volume 6) includes the illusive "Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu" (totaling 18), and this time correctly mentions Hunter J on the back of the box set (unlike Vol. 2). This is undoubtedly the best episode on the entire box set and worth mentioning that this is where you will find it!
Also included are the remaining three Pokémon Summer academy episodes that were first effected by my faulty VCR (see my review of Battle Dimension Vol. 2), and despite how I've always felt about holding out hope for subs, I still wanted the dubbed version! The budding friendship between Ash and Angie (which later continues in "If the Scarf Fits...") makes up some of this collection's best moments, along with an understanding between Ash's newly-evolved Grotle and Paul's Torterra ("Aiding the Enemy"), and Ash's battle with Barry, a blindly loyal fan of Paul's ("Barry's Busting Out All Over!"). Again, when did the dub get good?!
Okay, there are a few clunkers toward the end like "A Lean Mean Team Rocket Machine" and the poorly-dubbed "Sleepless in Pre-Battle" (Crescelia vs. Darkrai [if you want to see Darkrai in the animé, get the movie "The Rise of Darkrai"!]), but overall, it is absolutely worth owning.
REGARDING BOTH BOX SETS 2 and 3:
After being a Pokemon fan for so many years, DP Battle Dimension (season 11) was by far the best overall season yet. Our hero Ash's devotion and passion to protect Pokemon shines brighter than ever opposite his heartless rival Paul and cruel Pokemon hunter J...
these box sets worth every penny, in plain English.
