Aeiou!(falcon gonna win?)
Rainbow dash is captain planet :O
I see owlowiscious.
Wait.WHERE IS SCOOTALOO?
falcon, eagle, owl, and a bat.Twi has an owl, so it's out of the question.Bat seems unlikely. So, eagle or falcon.
:3 can't wait!
I dont see a certain chicken amongst her army there.
@Pedro B.Chickens can't fly.
@wackyteenOr that turtle.
I rooting for the bat on the far left. >:D
My money is on the falcon.
Falcons? I approve.
o god, please say it's the bat. the bat looks so effing cute.
The bat is adorable and I want him to win.
No scoots? Awww....
I'm putting the odds, from left to right, at 50/1/24/25.
Gummy <3 my friend and I were JUST (like an hour ago) talking about how season 2 needed some gummy!!!
Thats a pretty awesome bald eagle.
Bat is mad cute, and the falcon is mad cool. I hope one of them wins.Twilight has the owl already, and the eagle is almost as big as the ponies
Well if there's no Scootaloo you know what that means......fan-fic writers, start your drafting! :p
In before Scootaloo shopped into pic.
@DaffodilAnd he's more "toyetic" too.
It's not going to be any of the four. None of them look like the underdog, so there's probably one that's left out of the screenshot there.
I wanted Scootapet!
I'm almost certain that it will end up being a turtle or some other slow creature.Rainbow Dash will learn a lesson that it's not about the fastest but it's the one with the best heart, and a turtle will probably save her life or something.That is my prediction.
My guess: Rainbow Dash doesn't get a pet but does get some lesson.
I hope that bat is called Bram, or Stoker. Although Alucard would be acceptable.
THEY'RE GONNA FLY DAMMITIT'S BEAUTIFUL
It's gonna be the bat, isn't it. None of the cool ones at all, because as a little kids show, the underdog always wins.
I'm really hoping the bat wins, and I'm not even sure why.
WINONA AND OWLOWISCIOUS ARE BACK!This screenshot clears up a lot of stuff, but this episode still seems weird to me. I can't imagine how it'll possibly play out.
i bet 10 of my internets on the bat.Look at him!DAT DOCTOR WHOOF MANE!
i'm going with either no pet, or the dark horse victory of an animal not shown.
Dear Princess Celestia,Today I learned that you shouldn't choose a pet because it's fast or strong, but because you want to be its friend.
Oh god, she's actually doing this.
Hey, Owlicious is back!I'm betting the one on the far left will win.
I edited it so it would be accurate. :3http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f119/Feyrah93/Untitled-1-1.jpg
I'm just happy to see Fluttershy. A two-episode hiatus is just a little too long.
So much awesome in one season.
i'd go for the bat
Hopefully Baron Awesome wins this little race.
@Sabrina C. MüllerHaha, awesome.
I'm guessing the bat IS the dark horse here. Observe it's location on the far left, it's small size, and it's somewhat derpy expression.
@Sabrina C. MüllerAnd there we go.
Hey, Owliscious is back!
My money's on either the bat or the falcon. I mean the bat is pretty cute, but the Falcon is supposed to be the fastest flier in the world.The eagle looks too mean, and while I think the owl is freakin' adorable it has very little considering Twilight already has one.
@Sabrina C. Müllerslowclap.wav
@GreyGnu i will concede that the bat is the third most likely option above my previous theories.i'm also trying to figure out a sepia tock pun based on someone's comment on the bat's whoof-hawk.
Considering this is a show for little girls, the one with the biggest eyes and seemingly no chance will usually win.So my bet is on the bat.
Commodore Amazing, Duke Wonderful, Baron Awesome, and Governor Magnificent
it wont be learning the tortoise and hare lesson because they learnt that in the autumn race episode.
WHUT? But.... but... We had a Sweetie Belle and a Applebloom episode! We should have a Scootaloo now! THIS MAKES NO SENSE!Still, OWLOWICIOUS! YAY!
The chicken is obviously wearing an eagle suit.Think about it.
There will be no winner. Dash will proabably act all arrogant and get in trouble and will be saved by all four animals and he decides all four will be his friends instead pets.
I just noticed that the HUB logo is tiny. Is that how it is in most screenshots?
@Sabrina C. MüllerThank you so much for including the ScootaChicken among the pets!
I think the bat's name should be 'Cricket'.
Wow, haven't been this excited for an episode in a while.I'm calling that it'll be the bat. It's cute, more likely to sell toys.Also then it means RD can be batmare, and there is nothing wrong with that. Scootaloo can be Robin.
Im going to say that the winner is some undisclosed animal that in not in that lineup. A tag-a-long if you will that is somehow going to win Dash's heart.
@Flutterfan Dash is a female....
I'm gonna say the bat, he/she looks like the underdog of the bunch. Plus, Dashie with a pet bat just seems so hilariously cute.
@GeNNow I know I'm not the only one who thought this...
Pretty sure that's not Owlowicious. There's moar than 1 owl in Equestria, you know.Eagle looks too much like a Griffon, that'd be weird.Bat or Falcon! Let's start betting money via PayPal! :DI say Falcon.I think Dash would enjoy a sport that has been the pass-time of kings, hunters and warriors for 4000 years. /GeorgePlimptonsVideoFalconry
FLYING TURTLE should win.
Prediction: Immediately after this screenshot, Gilda is going to swoop in, eat all the other contenders, reconcile with Dash and become her pet.Pretty obvious, really.
That bat is so adorable. Call him Shade Silverwing show and I'll explode.
THERE'S A FALCON THERE: PREPARE FOR BARON AWESOME
A bat would be awesome, but eagle/falcon would be pretty sweet.
You had me excited for a moment. I briefly thought Dash in a hoodie was the screencap.
I agree with the general sentiment here... None of them seem likely, although the bat seems the most "designed" to be a part of the show out of all of them. The owl is too redundant (yay, Owlowicious! I don't know why I'm happy to see him back... just for continuity's sake, I suppose.) The other two birds don't look friendly/expressive enough. The bat looks pretty awesome, but I have a hard time imagining how that would work on the show.I agree she'll likely end up with a completely contrary pet like a turtle or no pet at all.
@mycutiemarkisagunOwlowicious is sitting on Twilight's tail up above.
Go bat. >.>
The bat is also vaguely similar to Doctor Whooves/David Tennant (just the hair, really, but that won't deter me from asking)...Perhaps another regeneration?
As someone who is a huge RD fan, majoring in Ornithology, and a raptor rehabilitator, I am completely overcome with joy. I'm a bit partial to the falcon though, they are so much fun to work with.
Ermm...Doesn't anyone else think it's a bad idea to have pets competing that could possibly eat the other ponies pets? (like Angel?) o_o
Wait, wait, wait. So Angel is a pet and NOT Fluttershy's friend?._.
Wing Commander Dash will have 4 pets at her disposal. I vote she keeps all them as pets!
This is kinda pointless. I think the only thing that can keep up with Rainbow Dash is light...maybe? I don't think light makes a good pet.
@elldrianI think your fears are completely unfounded. No matter how likely it may look, the writers of the show would never let Angel eat another pe on air.
Did you guys seriously think that Scootaloo would become Dash's pet..?I want the falcon to win. Or eagle.
@mycutiemarkisagunJust so you know, Owlowicious is actually already on Twilights back, you can see him at the top. XD
GUYS. Episode 7 clip!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0dw_ODMz8I&feature=feedu
I vote the bat, but there may be something with that other owl. Something with Owlowicious perhaps?
That rock to the left of RD's group is conspicuously placed. I bet that there's some underdog-type contestant hidden behind it, either to step out in a few seconds or the "camera" to pan up there so we can see.My bet's on that.
I thought the bat was a flying squirrel at first glance. Either way, that's got my bet.The eagle and the falcon don't seem to fit, and, as has been stated, Twi's already got the owl.Only mild disappointment at the lack of chicken.
Sweet... Thanks Tyranoman!Pony Pet Playdate! I'm kind of curious how that works, seeing how Wynonna seems to be the only pet that "plays". But it does answer the question of whether or not they actually call Angel and Owlowicious "pets".And way to throw Twilight, Rarity and Applejack under the bus there, Pinkie!
Hooray for the return of Owlowscious and Winona! Also starring Gummy, Angel and Opal!The pets need their own spinoff. Owlowscious is the brainy one like Twilight but he's a mute and can only say "Who?" Opal is the prissy, flaunty one, Winona is excitable and crazy, Angel is tough and stern, but has a heart of gold, and Gummy is Gummy.They fight crime.
It will be the one we least expect. You know that's how its gonna work out. There's probably a trope for that XD
Cool clip Tyranoman.Thank you for sharing with the group.Gummy on Pinkie's head ≅ Brain slug from Futurama?
@moocow1452The eagle is secretly a turtle.
I honestly forsee one of three things:1 she picks no pet2 she picks a turtle3 Scootaloo
Not to jump on the bandwagon here, but I really want the bat to win. Lol.
Yeah! Full pony pet roll call! Owlowiscious, Winona, Opalescence, Angel, and Gummy.
Baron Awesome will soon be canon?
I bet she doesn't pick any pet at all in the end. ;)But I do like the bat as well. Cute. And the falcon simply looks badass. The owl is so round I just want to roll him around. lol <3
OHMYGOSHTHOSE ARE MY FAVORITE ANIMALS EVERI was kind of expecting an eagle, but a Peregrine falcon? My god.
Scootaloo already finished the race
My money is on the bat or falcon( if a pet is chosen). bat because it is the underdog. falcon because one: I like falcons, and two: that looks like a peregrine, fastest pet for the fastest pony.
@Sgt ByrdYeah, I love the brain-slug Gummy. Plus, more prehensile tail action from Applejack this time. You know, I sympathize with some fans who don't like it, but I have to admit that Pinkie's enthusiastically oblivious insensitivity this season never fails to get a laugh out of me.
$5 on the bat, it's more marketable. And as we all know, this show is purely for selling toys now! :trollface:
DANG IT, Owlowiscious is still canon...I was honestly hoping his appearance would be a one-episode deal, but if all the Season 2 episodes up to this point are any indication, there's still a good chance he won't be appearing very often at all in the long run. :DGotta say, the eagle and falcon look pretty awesome, bet they'd be a nice match for Rainbow Dash.
My money is on the bat, since Twilight already has an owl.As a person with an keen interest in Falconry I immediately set to work to identify that falcon. I'd put my money on it being a Lanner falcon, due to its colouring and the prominent fachial markings. It COULD be a juvenile peregrine but the 'moustache' on peregrines tend to be much broader and have less of a defined point, although it does look like that sometimes. I'd probably call it Larry.Anyway, I'm even more stoked for this week's episode. Rainbow Dash AND raptors. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
@ponyvangelist But Gilda was in Pinkie Pie's cupcakes, wasn't she?
Somehow, I don't want any of them to win.
K, crazy theory here, but I betcha NONE of them will win. As a matter of fact, if Dash does get a pet, I bet it'll be one that can't fly at all. ;)
GO BAT GO! Bats for the win! 8D
Theory: I think that Dash will not really like any of the pets but she'll be pressured to chose one to be like her friends, then realize that she doesn't need to succumb to peer pressure and just go on without a pet.
It's a wolf
I doubt any of those will end up winning. Her pet will most likely be some critter she initially underestimates, but in the end proves itself to her.
I bet none of them are gonna win.Its gonna be like Sisterhooves Social, with the suprise ending!
@aurapaladin That makes an awful lot of sense! I love falcons, but my money's on the bat XD
@Sonic FlareProves my point
The moral for this episode: Peer Pressure.....Also how are the bat and the Owl(s) still awake? Aren't they nocturnal?
Baron Awesome, whatever, I want the bat to win! At least I think it's a bat... bats are cool! :DAlso, enough with the fucking Scootaloo/chicken jokes. Not to mention, lot of people are missing the issue of Scootaloo being a PET is not the same thing as adopting her as a sister...
the hawk or the eagle would be awesome pets! But I hope Rainbow Dash gets a pet that's hilariously doesn't suit her as a twist xD
@Smashmatt202Did it hurt when you killed your sense of humor? Did you cry?
@ Something To Quack AboutThe only thing that hurts is every single time someone tries to tell a joke that isn't funny anymore. >:|
@elldrianWell Rarity has a cat and Twilight has an owl
I hope it's the bat. The bat looks suitably underdog-ish.Though do I sense Owlowiscious hooking up with the sweetie on the center left? Eh? Eh?
Hey, I see Winona up top! After her absence during the sheep roundup a couple weeks ago, I was wondering if she'd been dropped down the memory hole.
obviously is not gonna be any of the ones in this picture. Always happens.
@ Inkblupegasus:It depends on the species and the individual. Some owls are strictly nocturnal, others are diurnal and yet others still are crepuscular.Especially in captivity the nocturnal owls can still be active. I've flown a barn and tawny owl in the middle of the day before.
the Eagle and bat have the best designs, the bat has the most chancealthough my bet goes to the off-screen turtle
...That eagle is just begging to have a monocle and top hat shopped on to him...
Watch her not choose any of them and instead find a turtle.
Then the cockatrice flies in, stones the rest, and wins by elimination.
Okay, I don't know what's going to happen but I have to say I want her bet to be the bat, 'cause I FUCKING LOVE BATS. 8DBut most of you are right, it'll probably be a turtle. HOWEVER, if it is, how in the hell could she have it live in her cloud home? 0_0
I'm guessing the falcon will win, it looks pretty evil so i think it's gonna win like, halfway in to the episode, and then the rest of the episode will be about what a pain in the plot it is and they will have to get rid of it :P
@Flutterfan"There will be no winner. Dash will proabably act all arrogant and get in trouble and will be saved by all four animals and he decides all four will be his friends instead pets. ""and will be saved by all four animals and he decides all four will be his friends instead pets.""and he decides all four will be his friends instead pets.""and he decides all four ""and he decides""and he""he"...
If it doesn't end up being a turtle, I think we should start a campain that Derpy's pet is a turtle and it always stays just off screen.
My money's on Dash picking the eagle because, y'know, it's a fYAYing EAGLE.Also Rainbow Dash is the ponification of America.
y2kyle89 said... Commodore Amazing, Duke Wonderful, Baron Awesome, and Governor MagnificentThat so totally needs to be canon or fanon.@ShannonThere's already a pic with Derpy with a turtle sidekick, I'm perfectly fine with that idea.
If Scootaloo doesn't show up at some point being a ridiculous fan-girl I will be very dissapoint >:/
@Vel SparkoAccording to EqD, America firmly believes that Twilight Sparkle is best pony, while Canadian terrorists defaced the White House with a banner of Rainbow Dash, which Canada itself affirmed. We went to war over it.
If this is a test of speed, the falcon will win. The eagle is not as swift as a falcon and primarily soars with its larger wing span, though it can stay aloft in the air with less wingbeats than the falcon. The owl is a steady flier but lacking in the speed of the falcon. Not a big soarer like the eagle. The bat is the dark horse, but it can turn on a dime with its echolocation abilities. I see falcon as the clear winner, but I'm also a bat fan.
@Hawkeye22I'd put my money on it being a young Peregrine falcon. The eagle is a Bald Eagle, and if the eagle is an American species (due to being an American show), I'd suspect the falcon is an American species. The malar is too broad to be a Prairie Falcon or female Merlin, so young Peregrine seems about right. However, the Barbary Falcon, sometimes considered to be a subspecies of the Peregrine has a brownish look the the back plumage rather than the typical slaty-blue. Since is the US, I'm erring on young Peregrine.Or just a made up Equestrian Falcon. This is the show that gave us Pink Jays, after all. Lot of raptor fans on here, good to see I'm not the only bird nerd :)
Yay, Owlowicious makes another appearance
Is it me, or are they all looking at something off-camera...
