Is there no good quality on Youtube yet, or is it just me?
I am soo glad Ash was the one who got Mijumaru. Finally he can get his first fully evolved Water-starter.
Or so we think...there is still no way to know for sure that Mijumaru will evolve.
This episode was pretty "meh" for me. I liked all the interactions with Mijumaru and the writers remembering to have Satoshi call Araragi-Hakase to get its Monster Ball, but that's it, really. The hot springs plot wasn't interesting at all and it was a pretty sucky way to introduce an awesome pokemon like Meguroc. I hope this isn't a preview of the type of filler material Best Wishes is prepared to give us.
The Rocket-Dan acted a little more like themselves (Musashi actually refers to Satoshi as "Jari Boy"), but they're not quite there yet. The preview for next week's episode has me hopeful, though.
I was happy to see their coat/hat combinations make a return, and it's getting me thinking that those might end up being their "civilian clothes" from now on. I guess they won't be walking around in their uniforms in broad daylight anymore?
I think one of the pre-BW previews showed a trenchcat scene we haven't seen yet, so we are definitely going to see them again.I was happy to see their coat/hat combinations make a return, and it's getting me thinking that those might end up being their "civilian clothes" from now on.

Aside from a few scenes here and there, this episode is pretty dull. The plot is nothing we haven't seen before, and Dan is hardly a memorable CotD. But once again, Mijumaru steals the show - my big belly laugh of the episode came when it shoved Pikachu off Satoshi's shoulder. Otter has balls. That bit in the cold opening where Iris and Satoshi try to walk faster than each other made me giggle too. Only two episodes together and they're already at each other's throats.
Will Meguroc ever come back? I doubt it. This show's been known to throw us red herrings before, especially when it comes to wild Pokémon. After all, we haven't seen Purin since 2003, have we?
Apparently, Shikijika and Minezumi are going to be the Nazonokusa and Karakara of Isshu. We've seen them in all three episodes so far whenever the script called for a generic Pokémon. I hope we get a full-fledged Shikijika/Mebukijika episode later on, 'cause it's too interesting to just leave it grazing in the background like this. (Also, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who was wondering "Why don't the Mamepato just fly away?" What, did they forget how?)
Serious Musashi-tachi are starting to grow on me. They were less "generic villains" in this and a bit more badass. When they fall down the pit, they don't collapse in a heap like usual - they keep their balance and land on their feet, which was nice to see. And the motto in this episode was full of awesome imagery, as our own Musashi has already pointed out.
I'm still waiting for Kojirou to get a Pokémon, though. I'm guessing he's gonna catch a Yabukuron - it is a Poison type, after all.
You'd be surprised just how accurate to the real bird's behaviour those Mamepato were. Some pigeons really don't have the lights on upstairs, and will just sit there in the face of blatant danger.
In all honesty, I'm sort of questioning the Meguroc's line of thinking more. I mean, what made it believe that gathering some flying pokemon to stay at ground level made any sense in the first place? :P
This episode was quite decent, however, I didn't like the animation. We've had three episodes of Best Wishes, and the only one with good animation was the first one.
I see Mijumaru being the new Piplup.
