Background Pony #1B07
The official MLP YouTube channel released a compilation of clips from MYM.That was… AWESOME! The best 7 minutes and 59 seconds of my life. Earth Ponies’ magic is surely my favorite one, despite the issues the folks from Maretime Bay are facing! And I never thought I would say it, but it’s nice to see Sprout again. I wonder who’s voicing him: Joshua Graham (as per A Maretime Bay Adventure) or somebody else.
Very interesting. Looks like Opaline’s sabotage had resulted in the worst possible scenario for her.
It’s obvious that she had Misty plant the mystical flower that we’ve seen, to create magical overloads when earthbound magic is used. We know from G4 that the earth pony magic is earthbound in three specific fields; rock/mineral, soil/sand and plants/vegetation. This happens by spreading magical energy through the earth elements. And Sprout typically cause CMC-level disasters without meaning to. What the earth ponies needed was to learn the importance of control like their ancestors.
The end of the compilation will not be described here, but I think we have seen the beginning of elemental magic in G5. If Opaline sees this, I bet her screams of rage drowned out everything for miles around.
Sunny verses Opaline; 1-0
