    I'm an adult and I had to look up the word "sommelier" because I had never heard it before. ^^' I thought it was a made up term at first.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I still prefer to associate the term "critic" with Jay Sherman...

    Cilan: IT STINKS!

    Cilan certainly did a critical hit at Cabernet. he would be super-effective at that job.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    So far this was my favorite episode of BW. Cabernet is an awesome character and I really hope she comes back. She could be the female Harley xP
    I lol'd when she literally tried to "taste" Snivy XD

    Cilan was awesome as always <3 Although I'd hate to get on his bad side seeing how he was towards Cabernet o.o

    Well if it works in English, then that's what they should use for the English Dub. It makes the most sense and it's the concept that the Japanese team of creation used to shape Dento's profession and storyline. I say keep it.

    It sounds French so I like it... but still prefer sommelier.

    Highlight of the episode as far as Ash and his team was concerned.

    I really enjoyed this episode. I liked the fact that we were introduced to another side of Dento...a somewhat arrogant side to him. I also like how the episode explained, to an extent, what one must go through to become a sommelier and the different levels. I actually hope that they explain why Dento became interested in the profession to begin with and if he went to school too (before this ep, I just figured he was a "freelance sommelier" or something). Wish they'd do that in general with characters (unless they have and I just missed it over the years).

    As for Cabernet, I really liked her character. She's nice and crazed, just the way I like 'em. lol I still wonder how much truth there was including her first encounter with Dento. Did it come across as much worse because she was younger at the time? Was she just overly-sensitive? Was Dento, at that time, more arrogant as opposed to calm and humble like he is now (as he was willing to admit his mistake with Satoshi and Mijumaru, iirc). Anywho, I like how they were probably showing what a sommelier shouldn't do (with Cabernet), like literally "tasting" the Pokemon (anyone else feel it would've been hilarious if she'd tried to taste Satoshi and then Tsutarja? lol)

    I hope that Cabernet comes back in future episodes.

    Hm, adding on, I can't help but wonder how much time has passed since her battle with Dento given how she looks now, and how she looked then, yet, Dento didn't seem to have aged at all. Are the triplets really older than they look? lol

    That would have been disastrous! Yes, please

    Well, it was Cabernet's memory, right? Perhaps she romanticized her own appearance to make Dento look even more menacing. It probably hasn't been over a year though, in my mind.

    Then again, the more I look into it, the more truthful I think Cabernet's account is.

    One thing I don't like is how spammable Dig, and Protect have become. Especially the latter. Within the realms of the anime it's a rather cheap move.

    I loved this episode - it focused on Cilan and expanded on Sommeliers. Ash echoed my thoughts when the title of this episode was first announced: "Wow, so there are other sommeliers besides you"

    I really liked Cabernet, and when she says "Bonjour! Tasting time. s'il-vous-plait!" , the cuteness levels are off the charts.

    The only things in this episode I didn't like are Iris doing nothing and Cilan's battle with Cabernet - maybe if it was Panage vs Dewott and Dwebble vs Sawsbuck it would have made more sense.

    Cilan gained super awesome points in this episode. He also said something with a similar meaning to what I want to say to the Psychology lecturers at the University I was at for a few weeks:

    "The compatability between trainer and Pokémon is a profound matter, you can't make accurate tastings by following a manual in your decisions"
    Just y'know, with more reference to Psychology.

    Great episode. I hope we see more of Cabernet.

    And, to quote Cilan on the upcoming Cilan x Cabernet fanfiction: "I didn't say that."

    The whole point of using Ishizumai against Futachimaru was to show that a Pokémon's taste is above that of type advantages. The taste doesn't follow set instructions, just like having a type advantage doesn't mean that you are set to win.

    The line you mentioned wouldn't have made sense if Dent didn't go with that choice.

    Maybe if the battles were longer it would have felt more deserving. Like, if Dewott really did get tired after a water gun, a fury cutter and a water pulse...then it's a crappy Dewott. Same with Dwebble vs Sawsbuck; it was too short for me to believe it was an accurate battle. Even with his Sommelier Sparkle Magic, the battle shouldn't have been that quick.

    I really dislike how they have Ishizumai use Shell Break, and he simply glows and "breaks" his exoskeleton.

    The game makes it seems like he instead ditches his shell in order to get the boost, giving up his protection. I mean, that seems like it would make sense, but I guess they didn't want to deal with having to show it finding a new shell.

    The whole Ishizumai vs. Dewott battle was kind of weird and stilted though...should've just called the episode "Sommelier Showdown! Dent vs. Cabernet" really. Kind of reminded me of that one DP Episode called "Ash vs. Pikachu".
