    Me too. Glad he got a Pokemon none of us would have expected him to get.

    Because we need to see the TRio do awesome spy stuff reminiscent of "Love and the Origin of Youth!"

    Pretty good episode. It was nice to see Dento get some spotlight and capture a Pokemon. The Ishizumai scenes were kinda hit and miss though.

    The Rockets sure were awesome though. Hope they get to the Resort Desert soon.

    I was pretty surprised that Dento caught Ishizumai, I never expected him to get that.

    It was also good to see that Iris has medical skills.

    This episode wasn't too bad, I enjoyed it.

    did anyone have any idea dento was going to catch that ishizumai?!
    Me!

    Well, I wanted him to get it since Ishizumai is one of my favorite Pokemon, and I joked in the preview thread that Dent was getting all the screentime in the trailer, and it ended up coming true! I guess they aren't establishing any specific team for Dent, unless he's getting Pokemon you can eat (meaning Vanipucchi is in his future!) or something.

    Hopefully Dent uses Ishizumai more than Brock did his Pokemon.

    Here I was thinking this would be a pointless filler until the more important episodes in the next few weeks and they go and do something unexpected with this capture.

    Great ep, liked that it went from filler to capture episode in a snap, and I thought DP was unexpected. Otherwise, bit pissed at how they had different rock shells, and there's nothing like that in the games.

    My god, I'm tired of the Rockets. The last 5 episodes has had them get information, meet agents, get stuff, deliver stuff... nothing of which matters the slightest in any way, nothing of which is particularly interesting to watch, and nothing of which seems to go anywhere. If they're not going to be in the episode, why not, you know, NOT put them into the episode instead of tossing in pointless scenes like these?

    Quite liked the episode itself, though. Some nice battle choreography at the end there, with lots of use of terrain for advantage. Fun stuff.
    So.

    Oh my freaking Arceus, I thought that if I avoided this review thread, I would be prevented from seeing any enjoyable spoilers that may have occurred in what I thought was simply a filler episode...

    But I guess SOMEONE decided to make a separate thread dedicated to the ONE THING that I didn't want to know >:(

    Element of surprise = Gone for me...

    But, yay...I'm glad Dento finally gets another pokemon! This is quite a strange choice for him, I must say, but I'm sure his fabulousness will rub off on it :P

    Oh, BW, you always seem to find a way to make your eps have some importance. I wouldn't discount TR just yet. There has to be a reason behind all this.

    A reason beyond "Must. Put. The Rocket trio. In Every. Episode."? No. There's nothing in their scenes from the 5 last episodes that couldn't have been cut and replaced with a one-minute scene when this Meteonite plot actually starts, whenever that will be. The only thing of importance to this plot some claim they're "building up" has been the explanation of what the Meteonite is from BW9. Everything else has just been pointless crap to give them an appearance every episode.
    So.

    As long as it leads to a Giovanni conclusion later in the arc, you can't say its pointless.

    Adamant, they used this same kind of build up for Galactic in DP so it's not pointless... They also did the same thing with Aqua and Magma... It's very much important build-up until a few major battles happen...

    It's also called having two separate plots that'll meet up later on in the story which is excellent story-writing skills....

    Because honestly TRio is more interesting now than they've been in the last decade with having their own story going on that isn't Ash centric... But it's actually TRio centric on their scenes...
    Can you hear me?

    Man, I could see James getting that Ishizumai, but Dento is fine as well.

    If this was the first Dento episode, it was a kind of disappointment, since the focus wasn't on him most of the time.

    Ha, so Dento get's a capture in this episode. That's a pleasant surprise.

    At least this wasn't a filler episode.

    Every week I dread that Best Wishes will go back to the filler formula of Johto. So far they've managed to do well, but god forbid Isshu be another 3-year arc with almost all filler.
