    If this episode establishes anything, it is that Ash has absolutely no problem with stripping down to his underpants mere minutes after meeting someone.

    It disturbs me to say that, somehow....

    It's also been established time after time that Ash doesn't know what romantic love is.

    Well, he's also ten. It'd be more disturbing if he was thinking about that all the time.

    She's supposed to be ditsy and somewhat annoying, that's just her character. The clumsy dumb blonde.

    That's probably why I dislike the whole point of BW007. The whole point was to use a Pokemon that was of the same gender, like Mamepato.

    If you can dodge it, then why did the writers throw in all that crap with Mamepato. I mean sure I get it Ash really wanted Snivy and used his whole team at the time, but even still, all these other Pokemon are dodging it like it means nothing.

    Probably just even more proof that the writers hate Ash. I mean he even told Mamepato to dodge the attract with quick attack, and Mamepato was still hit with attract, even if it was ineffective.

    Was showing Ash's Pokemon genders really that more important? I ask because it is unlikely we'll see the genders of Meguroco or Kurumiru.

    I loved the episode. One of the best I'd seen yet. My favorie part was when Bel got angry and stomped her foot in the ground. Her Chaoboo does the same thing witch made me lol real hard. XD Chaoboo's actions in the episode is making me want to pick Pokabu for my starter even more in my first White playthrogh :} Iam looking forward to see more Bel in the future episodes. Her kluzsyness is something I cant stop thinking about her. 8D



    P.S. Is Miju's Shell Blade really like that? 8*

    Whenever people try to think about Ash in romantic situations, please, refer to this post.

    Like in the edits thread about Dawn's skirt...she's 10. What are people doing thinking about ten year olds in that way anyway?

    I'm pretty sure Japan doesn't have the "blonde = dumb" stereotype.

    Besides that, I don't really think yellow hair is meant to represent blonde hair in Japanese cartoons the way it does in American cartoons. To the animators, yellow is just another primary color.

    It's because Ash doesn't understand love, thus Attract's effectiveness is reduced. Snivy understood it, so it was highly effective.

    Really, though, it's possible that the writers don't want every one of Ash's battles to be Attract Spamming.

    Except though move accuracy and other move related stuff relies heavily on the Pokemon using the move. I would find it hard to believe that Snivy knew the exact moment to use Attract and Ash only properly used it once.

    Really, though, it's possible that the writers don't want every one of Ash's battles to be Attract Spamming.
    Well then they shouldn't have Ash use the move constantly (even if he's only ever used it three times), even though if every one of those Diablous Ex Machina things were a strategy then I can't see why Ash can't spam attract? I mean it is a viable strategy then it should work on a regular basis.

    I understand that Ash will always be at a disadvantage but I still don't like the fact that in BW007, Ash only beat attract because he had a same gender Pokemon. Though of course it would mean Ash using Pikachu again, so actually I like how Ash caught Snivy using Mamepato just dislike the whole attract premise, and how less effective it has been since the episode outside of Janovy.

    And if spamming was an issue have the Pokemon have the same gender. I can already tell Shooti is going to catch a female Pokemon, just to counter Snivy's attract, maybe the vulture looking Pokemon (even though apparently it's a weird looking eagle).

    Though I guess the attract thing was for comedic relief.

    I was kidding. I really think that they want to keep this fresh and not over used.

    japan has a lot of stereotypes surrounding foreigners, but belle is not one of them. blond = foreign doesn't fly here anymore. tons of japanese (my husband for example) have bleach blond hair now, and in anime people have all kinds of hair colors, although many anime foreigners will also be blond, the key point to their foreigness is a japanese person doing an imitation of a foreign accent (and it's always nothing like a real foreign accent, hah!). lt. surge is my favourite example!

    anyway yeah belle is neither foreign nor a dumb blond, she's just ditzy in general. pokemon has had its share of ditzy blonds (barry and palmer anyone?!) but then there is like, volkner...

    We didn't mean Belle was a foreigner, we meant she was a ditzy idiot and people associate yellow hair or blond hair with being a idiot like Paris Hilton or Sailor Moon.

    my senior thesis i'm working on is about stereotyping so i think i went off the know-it-all deep end :B

    but yeah, like dogasu also said, japan doesn't have that dumb blond thing, it's either coolkids bleaching their hair or occasionally, foreigners. japanese don't associate being blond with being an idiot, but certainly when the episode gets dubbed...XD
