First, also Brown rain?
I always knew they had chocolate rain in Equestria.
RAINING MUD, FROM A LACERATED SKY!
OMG 8 MORE DAYS.
looks like it's raining mud lol
Just sent that to you xD
These glorious bastards keep teasing us!
uhh, looks like cloudsdale's sewer system is leaking again.
Look guys, CORN! I don't think we've seen that before...
I wonder why they are on a cornfield...
Brown rain, eww. More picture, so awesome!
She moves away from the mic so that she can breathe.
Anti-friendship rain detected.
You guys.Corn is now canon. All the wonderful things we can do with corn, they can also do.
CLOSE YOUR MOUTH, RAINBOW
Honestly, I'm...kinda not sure I wanna know what's going on there.Also, random thought: How do pegasi ponies keep their feathers clean? I wonder if we'll ever see Rainbow Dash or Fluttershy preening on the show.
Acid rain?It looks like acid rain to me. Oh boy, this looks bad. It's good to see Dashie in her colorful form here. I wonder if any of the remaining images will have Rainbow Dash in her Nega-Dash form. I can wait for another 8 days, it's half the number of days we have to wait since September started :D Also, I have a lot of stuff to do too.
That rain isn't normal rain... I'm thinking sadness rain.Also corn, I wonder what corner of Sweet Apple Acres they're on that has a full cornfield?Or maybe they're not in Ponyville right now.SPECULATION!!
GENTLEMAN BEHOLD!Corn...THIS TIME WILL BE DIFFERENThttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TMOMTtAMBI&feature=related
Thats just baaaaad. They're teasing us so much.Bet this gonna get a fanfiction.
Is Dash's Cutiemark backwards? Doesn't the lightning bolt usually face the other direction?
Foolish rain we bronies will wait in anything for season 2
So does the evil acid rain leech all of Rainbow's colors and make her Graybow Dash?
Brown rain?Blame Discord.
They're in a corn field and the rain is brown... I assume that it is acid rain which is ruining the crops and the episode has some kind of environmental lesson. Also looks like Dash can't do anything about it, so maybe the cloud is magical? Maybe there's a villain or something causing the trouble?
Well they are definitely looking at something, so I'd imagine that they see its not normal either.
Either the Apple family is branching out, or Discord is trolling AJ by turning all of the Apple trees into stalks of corn.Applejack: Corn!? Ah don't know how to farm no lousy corn!
Way to tease, Hasbro. Way to tease.
It's quite simple really, this is what happens to Equestria when Discord works his evil magic.
It's raining and Dash looks surprised. Hmmmm. Something happened to the Weather team/control?
NO RAINBOW! CLOSE YOUR MOUTH! THAT IS NOT CHOCOLATE!
Song of storms?
that is the strangest corn I have ever seen. Corn grows off the SIDE of a corn stalk not the top of it. And we can only hope it is NOT "Chocolate Rain" that would be such a trollish thing to do to the bronies.
@Jay MannSome stay dry; others feel the pain.
I thought it was mud
Perhaps Discord has power over nature but his role in manipulating weather was taken over by the Pegasi during his imprisonment.
Just offscreen, the elephant sharted everywhere
Chocolate rain... Some stay dry while others lose the game :sI didn't get it at first, but then I did,and it was funny. You're so witty, Seth.
I´ve never been so happy to see rain! 8 DAYS!
Oh lord. there are so many jokes i could make here but im in a good mood so i won't torment anyone.
It's a shitstorm!
Ponies of the corn!
@Dylan The new season hasn't started yet and we're already finding animation errors.
silly bronies, it isn't chocolate rain, its swettiepoo!
CORN CONFIRMED FOR CANON
@KitsThis was my first thought.
Damn it Weather Team! You weren't supposed to drag dirt clouds over Equestria!
Okay. Ponies probably eat corn in season 2. They also suffer acid rain. Have trees growing in fields and their furrows are some 6 feet apart. Somepony needs to teach Big Macintosh how to plough.
Corrosive rain?Reminds me of TOXIC LOVE.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg-Wm25T6Qs
who says it cant be chocolate...pinky and her cloud cycle could have put sprayers on it....either as a gag or something "fun" todo LOL..its pinky after alltho i think the "acid rain" washing away dashies color makes more sense......as for the corn i waant to see them harvest that!...and we have ALREADY seen corn on the train
Apparently Applejack also grows...Corn?
you gotta go when you gotta go...stupid pegasis >.<
Speaking of rain, Texas is on fire. We need some! =O
could be from some kind of eplosion too... ah the fun i've had with burried fireworks ^^
no its dirt from a exploshin
Some stay dry why others feel the pain...
Rainbow, what did you do?!
RAINING BLOODFROM A LACERATED SKYBLEEDING ITS HORRORNOW I SHALL REIGN IN BLOOD
@OneAndAMerfJust because Applejack is standing there, doesn't mean it's her farm. Which is probably a good thing since it's looking like it's getting messed up.
I'm sort of doubting acid rain... Heck, I'm not even 100% sure the sky is cloudy. Maybe something spraying mud everywhere... If it turns out to be some kind of rainfall, though, Pinkie must make mention of chocolate rain. This cannot be negotiated.
Flying Sweetiepoo is now canon.
It's the blood of the weather ponies who were just eaten by dragons?
first thought: green/brown rain generally means bee excrement, especially when they travel in large swarms. 0_osecond thought: Chocolate rain!third thought: Corn? what happened to apples?
Wait, Applejack grows CORN?!?Oh yeah, and there's reddish brown rain. Huh.BUT CORN?!?
Chocolate rain! I forgot all of the words!Chocolate rain! I should just stop, this is absurd.**I stop typing before I embarrass myself further**
You just had to link that song...
@TrollestiaOh no, I insist; go on. it's probably what they had planned what with releasing these pics early and all.
@TastI lost the game!which means you lost the game.
Rainbow, Ah think we ain't in Equestria anymore...:3
It may be Sweet Apple Acres since I see some familiar looking apple trees above Applejack's head in the background.
Raining, better take off your clothes and snuggle in a warm blanket Applejack and Rainbow.
@Kahrn Haven't those comics taught you anything? That's not corn it's cereal! Somepony must have been looking forward to something so much they got paralyzed so they went looking for it!
@AzureWell, if you're thinking of that, you do get a machine called a 'slurry' sprayer. It's basically a tank full of animal excrement on the back of an tractor with a shaft driven by the engine operating a 'spreader'. Similar to a slat spreader in winter.
Wait a minute....unless I'm very much mistaken, Dash's cutie mark is on backwards. Wonder if it's just an animation error??
Yay speculation!Also I fail at finding .jpg'shttp://www.google.com/imgres?q=idk+therefore+aliens.jpg&um=1&hl=en&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=isch&tbnid=u7xdXPxauiKhmM:&imgrefurl=http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/14824816&docid=5kiDMS1GKZJgrM&w=461&h=403&ei=43VqTunuCYry0gHv8sTYAg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=191&vpy=94&dur=390&hovh=210&hovw=240&tx=126&ty=88&page=1&tbnh=155&tbnw=181&start=0&ndsp=18&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0
@The_OwlMonsanto branded genetically modified corn is now canon.
Acid Rain? Oh boy...*cue the squealing fillies in pain*
Anyone get the feeling this episode is going to be darker than Nightmare Moon? I feel like that chaos is engulfing Equestria and everyone is suffering.
@MikeBit late now, most of 'em have already been made.
this is still episode 1 of season 2?
Fyi, we did see corn in Ponyville before:Episode 1http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqgsXkmQ6ZIat 7:36
So, acid rain washes away Dash's colour. (this picture)So Dash tries to stop the cloud doing it (that 2 second animation reel)Applejack realises she's being ridiculous and pulls her off the cloud (the other part of the animation)That's my two cents anyway.
So Rainbows cutie mark is backwards and is it just me or is there a bite out of one of AJs apples???
The most important part of this picture; evidence of corn in equestria.
That looks a lot like what happened at a drilling field I was at a few years ago. A waste water pipe that was under pressure at a rupture. It rained brown water over an area within about 50 yards of the pipe.
@Dylan@MudPuppy@WingnutHer cutie mark is the right way around. There are plenty of reference images you can compare against at mlp.wikia.com, so unless the dozen or so I looked at all had the same error...
So we know that there will be corn in season 2.
CORN CONFIRMED FOR SEASON TWO
Raining mud...Corn...Applejack does not grow corn...Illusion on Discord's part, perhaps?
Or...They're not directly on Applejack's property!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent, now we just need season 2 to have a reference to Team Fortress 2 in it."Here at Metalworx, we refine metal!"Pinkie: "OOH! CAN I MAKE A HAT WITH IT? 8D"
They did eat popcorn before guys..And popcorn is made of...
Goddamit, now I've got Chocolate Rain on the brain.
Corn?! Corn is no place for a mighty warrior!
Chocolate Rain? Oh cripes, Pinkie must have gotten a hold of Twilight's horn somehow.
Corn? Weird.Now I have to listen to Chocolate Rain now though.
Congrats Seth, because of you now the top comments on Chocolate Rain are about ponies or you haha
Hmmm....Well, we know for a fact that there are other ponies who have farms (Carrot Top), so this could just be AJ and RD off on some other pony's property. I dub this new farmer pony 'Cornstalk'!Also, might not be rain, could just be the resulting splatter of something that fell to the ground and tossed a lot of muddy soil into the air. Maybe even... (dun dun DUNH!!) Discord itself?
Apples carrots celery stalks...CORN!
oh my god, there's corn.This changes everything
AJ seems to be missing part of her cutie mark. If you look closely, there is a section taken out of one of the apples.
Inafter Chocolate Rain, shitstorm jokes that I was planning to make too. :PYay corn. I love corn. <3
Why no outrage at the wrongness of RDs cutie mark? :<
why is everyone "suddenly" make a big deal out of corn?....did everyone forget dashie on the train complaining to a VERY tired spike that all of his CORN wasnt poped only to have spike burn it to a cinder?......so corn..yeah its been around for a long while
Consider this: Rainbow Dash is a weather pony. She can clear the skies in ten seconds flat.Yet she's looking up as if there's something amiss. It can't just be something with the weather or she could clear it up right away.Applejack is also looking particularly worried, so that might mean that whatever the problem is may have some negative effects on harvests or crops.That brings me to the, what appears to be, brown rain.It can't be regular rain for the reasons stated above. Which brings the question, what could be causing it? Could it be Discord, messing things up around Equestria?The fact that there is corn does tend to suggest that this brown rain is a localized event. Were it all across Ponyville, Applejack probably wouldn't leave her apples.Maybe somepony called for their help, and they went to investigate.If this is Discord-related, that would put this somewhere between when Discord escaped, and before they figured out what to do. In other words, when he starts wreaking havoc and everypony is trying to get a handle on it.If not discord, I can't think of what else this could be. Maybe Cloudsdale had something go wrong, and Ponyville is getting the brunt of it? I could see a "good neighbor" episode coming out of that.But even then, what would the brown rain be? Maybe something went wrong in the weather factory? Maybe the rainbow-liquid got into the cloud generators and they malfunctioned?The only other thing I can think of at the moment is that there was some kind of magic gone wrong, but the only really magical unicorn in the show at the moment is Twilight, and she has yet to mess up any magic, as far as I recall.But wait, Trixie was hinted to maybe return in season two. Could this be Trixie messing things up around Ponyville, either intentionally or accidentally? That would fit in with the idea of magic gone awry.Anyway, those are all of my thoughts at the moment. Make of them what you will.
So, I'm guessing this is some sort of enchanted rain that'll reverse/remove their elements? Best I've got.Look at WafflePony if you want a decent theory.
What is a "Screeshot"?
No biggie, they're just fertilizing the fields. Normal method is to give Sweetie Belle a pegasus ride, but no one told AJ or RD about the scheduled event... And now they look on in horror at the explosive haunches of a little white unicorn filly in flight.
@BistorakA "screeshot" is when a ferocious beats frightens the image off your monitor. You can then pick it up off the bottom of the screen and drag it around like any image file... but frightened.
@Woof HoovesThat, as well as the popcorn Pinkie Pie was eating during the stampede in Applebuck Season.Either we've just become too distanced from the sources of our food products in modern society, or a lot of people here have really short memories!
Other theory... Froggy Bottom Bog exploded... Twice.It's just swamp water. Frogs and hydra will fall from the sky next, and Pinkie's tail will sprain from all the twitcha twiching.
"i thought it was mud"-Seth
Lulz, this is why Seth blogged Chocolate Rain on YouTube!
IT'S CORN SYRUP
Please more AppleDash scenes
The Great Might Poo attacks Equestria.
Dash did something to the plumbing and now there's a geyser of liquid mud showering across Ponyville and out into the fields.So she goes to Applejack, who for some reason, abandoned the orchard for a day to farm the fields. Together, the two of them concoct a story to blame Twilight and her lack of control over her magic for the problem.
I'm pretty sure this actually is AJ's farm, given that you can see an apple tree in the background right above her head. At the very least, they're probably close by.What I'm more curious about is what the heck that big ginormous tree on the left side of the frame is. It's too big to be an apple tree, and I can't imagine why a trunk that big would be in the middle of a field to begin with...
Corn confirmed for season 2!!!!!
@GadvacOr maybe the rain is just plain nasty water, perhaps acidic but not necessarily so.Applejack isn't by her apples because the rain just started and for whatever reason they're in the corn field we already know is there from the first episode of Season one.
AWESOME, but the brown rain seems a bit weird. Maybe the doing of some evil antagonist ;)
I knew there would be Chocolate Rain reference! It would be awesome if Fluttershy got deep voice again and sang it in the episode :D
Lol; anyone see the top comment on chocolate rain? it's non-pony A.T.M., but it's also VERY witty.
Dust+Rain=Mudstorm We get them occasionally on the Palouse.
My Two Favorite Ponies In Chocolate Rain, What Could Be Better?
wow i cant really think of plot related anything from this. chocolate rain wtf pegasai?
@Fire BronyWhat IS going on with Applejack's cutie mark? I see two apples and a chili pepper!
So we have weird rain and a pair of messed up cutie marks. I feel an evil wind in the air.
Looks like...*puts on sunglasses*...there's a shitstorm coming.Yay.
So... is Dashie trying to taste this acid rain or something?
So we have chocolate rain and corn in Equestria?The end is neigh.(Not really, but it is something to think about)
Cutie Mark Crusaders! Septic tank repair ponies!... and thus, the aftermath.
Since when there WAS corn in the field?! Mud main? Acid rain? What the hay rain? Is it from another episode within Season 2? Why does Applejack's cutie mark have a bitten apple? o_OWhat a tease Hasbro (or the guys managing the MLP Facebook account), what a tease. Made my day. :) I can't wait for Season 2.
OH GEEZ, I laughed... :lol: CHOCOLATE RAIN...
Well, guys, consider this...Why would Rainbow Dash be shooting a concerned glare at rain? After all, she can control the weather... The rain is probably of mystical origin, I'd wager it IS discord.
"Applejack, did Pinkie Pie get into your fertilizer again?"
I think this is a Special Holiday Episode, when aliens starts flooding equestria with this fluid.Then Doctor Whooves and Derpy Hooves cames and sends this aliens away.
Glad I'm not the only one who was reminded of that certain song immediately after looking at the screenshot. xD
Zoom in on AJ's cutie mark. Its a sticker!
Oh dear... It seems Pinkie Pie broke a septic tank...
Will not make a shitstorm comment.Will not make a shitstorm comment.Will not make a shitstorm comment.
@Luna Epona*Pinkie Pie bounce!* Well DUHHHHH, because it's Evil Space Corn, silly!
