Snivy is. She reminds me of Haibara from DC.
Haven't watched dis yet, but I'm on it.
Are we havin a cat fight 2day, ladies?? :D *gun shots*
Any possibility of a higher quality version of this? This is just begging to be used as a Facebook profile pic.
I love you. Thanks.
The BW Pokemon Cast: Arguably better than the previous casts? I give my full approval.
There isn't a single one of them I don't like, and this episode proved that to me. When has there EVER been a female vs. female animosity grudge match on the show (for the Pokemon in the team that is)?
And freaking Oshawott and Scraggy. I love those two.

What I enjoyed most of this episode is how the writers were willing to step outside their safe zone, and to that effect, create a storyline out of the individual pokemon belonging to members of the group.
Some people may have complained that the BW pokemon don't "have" any personality when compared to the pokemon that the group(s) used in the previous arcs. It is proven through the execution of this episode alone that the writers are more than capable of bringing a lot of life and vibrancy to several of these pokemon, if they are willing to showcase these pokemon in scenarios other than battles.
The main focus may very well have been the "feud" that existed between Snivy (who is serious and direct) and Emolga (who is carefree and manipulative, and also seemed to want to avoid battles). The writers have proven that they were able to make more of what appeared to be a battling or training episode at first. To that effect, the other pokemon in the group also contributed to the storyline of this episode.
Emolga's gluttinous nature has caused a feud between members of Ash's team, in a delicate and subtle way that it even took the "Master Detective" Cilan a while before he was able to reach a conclusion. That fight scene between Ash's pokemon was hilarious, to say the least. By showing Scraggy failing to harm Pikachu with his Headbutt, the writers also place some emphasis on continuity, which is always a plus.
For the first time in this series, we had the groups' pokemon interact with pokemon living in the wild such as Watchog. I have a feeling that these wild pokemon, whose vivid presence was largely ignored in previous series mainly due to time constraints, will become an increasingly vital force in the execution of many storylines in BW.
Even Cilan's Pansage was shown doing something in this episode. It was clear that Pansage did not expect to be sent out of its Poke Ball, and it was refreshing to see that form of comic relief apply to a pokemon other than Oshawott. I do believe that the only member of the group's team that wasn't featured in this episode was Cilan's Dwebble, and that in of itself is a lost cause.
I have a feeling that Emolga's presence will die down as soon as new episodes will air. Once the writers are done writing so that the acquisition of a new pokemon by a main character is justified, they move on to something else. Staples like Oshawott and Axew are there to stay, but I am not sure if Emolga will do much in the future.

This episode was funny as hell!!!!
I love how Emolga is suck a manipulative bitch starting sll kinds od drama! Best parts were the brawl between Oshawott, Tepig, Scraggy, and Swadloon! Lol Pikachu gets his ass kicked trying to break it up and Axew is just freaking out XD I also loved that scene when Emolga tricked Oshawott and Axew into thinking the Watchog were mean to her! Oshawott you are so awesome!

Finally caught up with BW. What better way to celebrate than post for the first time in months? XD
Which means I skipped a lot of study time (college </3)
I'm calling best series ever already, if only because of this episode (and as a whole, Mijumaru and Dent x]).
Tsutarja and Emonga? Once they start being bff siztuhs, them boys are going to eat their shit. Seriously, don't fuck with the ladies, especially ones as badass as these two. One thing I also love is how amazingly different each Pokemon's personalities are.
I likened Tsutarja to Jukain and I was like, oh, another fully evolved badass Tsutarja. But man, Tsutarja is so much cooler with her classy attitude. If I could understand Pokemon-speak, I'm sure she was saying "SIT THE FUCK DOWN, BITCH. BOW TO ME."
(cookie points to who got the reference) And Emonga is such a little gold-digger. For all of her utter maneater bitchiness, she is fucking awesome.
Obligatory needs moar Yanappu.
But um, how about all of the dudes? That is some sausage fest; which makes the female dominance of Emonga and Tsutarja to be much more awesome. And Hatoboh too, I guess, but she isn't much of a diva and is therefore so much more boring, lol.
Mijumaru gets me. Every time.
Example of a precocious water starter that likes being out of its ball done right :p
