    Rockets look spectacular, as usual <3

    This episode was pretty cute! I like how Mijumaru tried to sit on Satoshi's shoulder. And Meguroko is so great. I look forward to seeing it in future episodes.

    I also like how Iris helped Satoshi climb over the bridge of Megurokos. They are going to be great friends

    TBH, this was my favorite part of the episode, it was so funny!

    Even in my delirious, sleep-deprived state I was thinking that Mamepato was stupid since it could've just flown away. I mean sure, there were friggin' geysers, but they couldn't be that hard to dodge. I usually never catch on to things like that.

    Meguroko in sunglasses was pretty fun and I liked the hot sand scene (though it gave me eerie flashbacks of Lavaridge Town in Hoenn...). Overall though, it came off as pretty bland. It almost felt like the hot springs episode in Diamond & Pearl... which was also bland and quite terrible. I enjoyed the Mijumaru gags (this thing is so much freaking better than Piplup already... double for Kibago), though Team Rocket's "serious business" evolution is still making me WTF since I'm not used to it.

    I do find it odd that they're... kinda not addressing why Iris is sticking around with Ash since they're already not getting along and Iris keeps patronizing Ash like crazy (not that it isn't amusing). Unless she's just looking after him for kicks, so when Ash gets to Souryuu City 150+ episodes later, Iris is all "SURPRISE, BITCH! I'M YOUR ULTIMATE CHALLENGE!" unless they just... use Shaga instead. But that would be cool. Iunno. Guess it's fresh considering there has yet to be a bike casualty so far. 3 episodes without it is already a record for this series, aha.

    Looks like Megaglasses will come back again. I guess that would make it the squirtle replacement.

    Pretty nice episode. Loved Miju in it.

    So they remembered it was from the lab after all. That wasn't so hard. I don't know, but I found it rather odd to see Pika get so cheesed off from being pushed off Ash's shoulder. Then, in another screenie, he looks sad. Why was that? I was confused as to what motives sandcroc had until I came here. I'm not sure if it being on the to be continued screen means anything. Anyway, hooray for Ash officially having otter, even if all he had to do was return it to it's pokeball.

    Mijumaru is freaking adorable. It sounded like a little kid begging to be picked up by it's parent. Going to be real intersting to see how it develops. Hiopefully it fully evolves.

    Also, why exactly is Iris traveling with Ash? I mean she just seems to be getting on his nerves. He appeared to attempt to leave her, and she still followed him. I'm guessing it has something to do with Zerkom, or w/e it's called.

    So, it's obvious now that Mijumaru is Satoshi's new, shiny version of his Chikorita/Bayleaf in Isshu. I loved how Mijumaru just pushed Pikachu off Satoshi's shoulder and Pikachu got pissed off and retaliated with a Thunderbolt. It was also pretty interesting to see that Pikachu's Thunderbolt actually got reflected and hit Satoshi instead, to be honest. Really interesting episode.

    The sandbathing scene made me laugh a bit, and in parts of the episode, I personally, knew that there were going to be some very awkward shots while watching the scene, especially when they hardly showed Ash wearing his boxers in some parts. Though it does remind me of the Hoenn days, if you want me to tell the truth.

    Also, Team Rocket using a crane interested me. I still love their new motto and even though it still irks me a bit that they don't blast off - hey, holding their ground is actually making this anime more life-like and that amuses me - but where's their funny scenes? At the very least, I'm glad they're not the butt of the jokes in this season.

    ... I believe, though, that Iris is still going with Satoshi because of the whole Zekrom incident -- though I highly doubt that she knows that he was actually involved in that whole thing. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that he's a foreigner and is actually a quite interesting/amusing person? Just my two cents on that.

    Oh, and I squealed at the fact that Satoshi's the only one in the eyecatches, even after Iris became a part of the main team.

    Roles change sometimes!

    Ash&Iris: awkardly fall into a trap and get hit.
    Jessie&James: while falling into a trap change their position and land like some spy agents without any harm.

    Not to be offensive, but I personally think that the best shot is the 'to be continue' shot with the leader focused.

    Wow, that just made my Meguroko for Ash possible again! Unless it turns out like that evil Togepi episode where we didn't see it again.

    Loved Mijumaru! Glad to see it with Ash now. Kibago's a fun pokemon too. Pretty nice episode although I wonder why the Mamepato were just sitting there when the could've just flown away.

    Regardless, another pretty good episode and it's great to see Mijumaru officially caught.

    Hmm interesting this actually makes seance if you think about it. The two experienced criminals dodge a trap. The two ten year old's can't.

    I'm beginning to get the impression that Iris is based off of some kind of ADHD and Autistic stereotype. Maybe it's just me but as an Autistic myself I don't mean this to be offensive.

    new ending was so much better than the opening.

    rather surprised that Ash figured out who Mijumaru belonged to though. Team Rocket still making badass escapes instead of blasting off XD.

    overall it was a decent episode.

    Right! J&J are kind of secret agents, they are supposed to be dodgy.

    Does anyone have a .gif of Mijumaru throwing Pikachu off Ash's shoulder? =3

    I loved this episode. It featured my favourite Gen V Pokémon - Meguroko! How strong are they?!

    Iris is also quickly growing on me. I prefer the Ash-Iris dynamic than Ash and any of the other girls.
