TR's role in this episode was so small, I forgot they were even part of the episode.
I have to say, when Dento started cooking I started to laugh. What better way to replace Brock than with another cook! :D
Once again, Iris plays a backseat. I know this was an Ash-ep and all, but when are we going to see Iris do anything?
I hope you people believe in miracles, because only that will see the starters fully evo now. It's the pokemon gender goldmine. So snakey probably also has a troubled past. I shall be interested to see how Ash handles a pokemon of this nature.

Not too bad an episode. TRio didn't do much in this episode but w/e. Tsutarja has an interesting personality, so it's going to be interesting to see how it develops. Lol at Ash not knowing why attract didn't work on Mampeto.
As far as Dento and Iris go in this episode, Dento is the cook as expected, and Iris just seemed to annoy the hell out of Ash the entire episode. I'm sure they'll do more in the future.
Ok... I liked the episode but I didn't love it. It had a lot of good parts but added together they didn't really rock my world for some reason. Love Tsutamahrajah's (or however it's spelled) personality and I love that it reflected in its movements and general grace. Mamepato got anawesome battle, yay!!!! Mamepato is female, BOOOOOOOOOH!!! I wanted the pink mask... :( Mijumaru was funny, Pokabu was cute but I really wonder why they gave it the released pokemon backstory if it's not at all inhibited by it and they're going the same way with Tsutaregina. Overall, Iris and Dento both had funny moments and I loved TR with Meowth finally getting down to business... Hopefully it'll learn a new attack in Isshu and fight more often.
Few things bothered me. Pikachu and Kibago were flat as pancakes, Hiyappu and Koromori were missing and again... female Mamepato...
Grass Oath. Definitely Grass Oath.
Okay, so the new episode:
1. I got to see my favorite Isshu starter, and she is a beauty, what with her cool style and grace, with a pinch of badass.
2. I think Tsutarja may be a ninja, what with the Grass Oath disappearing trick and the replacement technique she pulled on Meowth.
3. Speaking of which, DID YOU SEE THOSE CLAW MARKS IN THE ROCK?!
4. I like that Mamepato is female. Those pink streamers the males develop would be hard to animate realistically in a battle and in flight.
5. Iris's reaction to whatever Ash said after Attract failed. Win. I can see it now, all of the girls who want Ash asking him if he finally understands what love is. "Oh, yeah. It's like paralysis, right?" *facefault*
6. Since Tsutarja has Grass Oath, will we be seeing the combo attacks in the anime, since Ash also has Pokabu and Mijumaru?
7. Did anyone else imagine hearing Tsutarja swearing a lot during the battle too?
8. And I still LOVE the new Quick Attack animation.
I liked this episode a lot, actually. It went by a little slow at first, but seeing Satoshi's new and amazing Tsutarja makes up for that. I LOVE her - she's like Fushigidane/Bulbasaur when you compare personalities, lol.
Wow, didn't expect Mamepato to be female... I was expecting all of Satoshi's Pokemon to be male. Neat! Glad to know she finally got the screentime she's been waiting for.
Satoshi not knowing Mame was female was priceless. XDDD
After watching the episode
I have to say
I LOVE THIS SNAKE!
I wonder what's up with her reactions to Ash helping Pikachu..troubled past anyone? Let's hope more will be revealed..
Dent: You chose Mamepato because it's a female right?
Ash: uh..actually I had no idea...*music stops*
Pikachu: *anime fall*
Well, let's be fair to Ash, it isn't like he goes looking underneath his pokemon to check their gender. I mean, I wouldn't.
Anyways, Tsutaja looks strong, very strong. Ash spent more time trying to catch this pokemon, than any pokemon prior. I guess he was due one long capture, since post Mamepato, he hadn't battled for Miju or Pokabu. In fact, Miju was a gimme, same with Pokabu.
