    BW 003 "Mijumaru! Meguroko! Close Call!!"
    Satoshi notices that the Mijumaru from before is still following him and decides to capture it. As soon as he receives its Monster Ball, the pokemon goes MIA, requiring Satoshi and Iris to search for it. As they look for the pokemon, they come across a boy named Dan and find out about a problem a group of Meguroc are causing for his father's hotel.

    Ash and Iris' reaction at the very beginning reminds me of Ash and Misty from the OS.

    It seems like the crocodile leader is going to appear again later since the last scene is showing it with the 'to be continue' words.

    Guess Mamepato are dumber than real pidgeons... They just stayed on the rock, and after everyone worked hard to get them to safety, they just flew away. XD

    Why Megurokos steal other pokemon? It's something about Team Plasma?

    The crocodile pokemon were trying to evacuate everyone from the area because they could sense that the hot spring geysers were about to erupt and put everyone in danger.

    I loved the Ash, Pikachu, and Kibago getting under the sand. Classic moment right there (especially Kibago, best Pokemon right there).

    As for the episode, aside from a few moments with Mijumaru, I honestly didn't really like the episode. I think its because they wasted Ash getting Mijumaru on an episode that revolved around Meguroko and hot springs, sorry but doesn't really do it for me.

    I did like how Mijumaru really, really, really wanted to be with Ash (and LOL at it disappearing after Ash received the Poke ball), and how is saved him.

    A shame we didn't see Ash's Mamepato but maybe soon.

    They sure have a weird way of showing help though (or at least sunglasses Meguroko).

    Unfortunately I missed the beginning of the episode, so I was a little confused at first xD Looks like we might see Meguroko again, which I'm eagerly looking forward to.
    Meguroko tower totally made my day. :D

    This. So, so much :p

    Otherwise, Iris seems pretty cool, liked her small saving Ash scene, and I enjoyed TR still keeping their serious side (man, their new motto rocks!).

    They can't talk, and they needed to get people away fast. What would you suggest they do? This is a a core plotline we've seen many times before in the series.
    So.

    Um, I don't know nudge them into a direction. Grab the talking Meowth and force it to be a translator, anything probably would've worked better than eating people's Pokemon (just kidding about the eating part).

    And until Meguroko decided to make that bridge it actually seemed like they were antagonistic, I mean forcing the Pokemon to go on a "place" that was eventually going to be surrounded by boiling hot water. Those Pokemon looked scared of Meguroko.

    For a group of Pokemon trying to help, they weren't exactly good at it were they? (of course maybe that was the point).

    It's looks like Satoshi and Iris are trying to walk faster than the other in the beginning. They are decided to be companions or not?

    I don't know. It looks to me like Iris is travelling with Ash just because. Maybe it was because Ash saw Zekrom, or maybe it was because Ash helped save Kibago.

    Unless she said something in this episode, I honestly doubt we'll get an official answer on why she's travelling with Ash.

    Edit: Oh I forgot to mention I loved the new Oak segment.

    *newscaster music playing* Oak: This just in Ash gets a Mijumaru, next time we'll find out what the mysterious Pokemon is in the episode title. (just to note that didn't happen, I was just saying it because it would be awesome if they actually did that).

    Seriously Oak's set-up is awesome, they really should do that at least once (news type stuff), since Oak sort of looks like a newscaster in the segment.

    Pretty fun episodes. I love Meguroko, but I think everyone is forgetting the best shot of the episode.

    I can't get over how awesome the Rockets are. I'll miss their goofiness and blastoffs and ii kanji's, but I think new direction is for the best.

    The episode overall was pretty cute! Mijumaru <3 I really like Iris so far as well. And the new ending! The little pokemon band was so adorable.

    I love that the Rockets haven't been blasted off. They know when it's time to gtfo. I just love them so much like this <3

    Best. Screencap. Ever.
