    They really couldn't end the episode with her and Crimgan on bad terms, so Iris giving her the confidence to win wasn't a big deal. We'll never see her again anyway. When I saw Crigam doing Draco Meteor, and Dragon Pulse in the preview I knew Tepig didn't stand a chance knowing only 3 moves, and that Iris was going to give Emmi or w/e the courage to win. Ash was like whatev's. Pokabu seemed happy after the battle too.

    -Iris being ninja for like the whole episode.
    -Kibago finally getting Dragon Rage down
    -Team Rocket being completely amazing. Dear god, why are you getting this right now?

    This was alright, but it was just kinda alright. It's true that we've seen this episode quite a few times before. However, what I think really set it out was how very well handled Team Rocket was in the episode and some full focus on Iris. I mean, this literally was everything I wanted to see from the Rockets since like forever. Being serious, not stupid, but still seeming "human" (for those thinking they were robots) and kicking ass in battle. And I enjoyed the very well-animated focus on Musashi's lips.

    I'm thinking more dragon-centered, but if Kibago is to get to Ononokusu by the end of the series (or whenever we see Iris' village again, I'm assuming around the 8th badge), I'd think that having the main focus be on Kibago would be the point right?

    I am glad to see TR remaining competent even though they never truly, "win," so to speak.

    As for Iris, I think this is as good as we're ever going to get. She's never going to get a lot of screentime as some of the other characters but as long as she gets one or two eps like this between each Gym its fine.

    On the Iris side of the episode, wow, more awesomeness. I love how she helped Emmy train, and we got a great flashback of Iris at her village. It's also nice that Kibago learning Dragon Rage isn't being dragged out any longer.

    Damn this show is awesome.
    I feel the same.

    Best BW episode so far. Even the animation was great.

    The only thing that bothers me looking over the pictures is that this episode introduced even more stock-footage into the fold...James' little "attack pose" and Yamask's shadow ball shot I saw, like, five times?

    Maybe it's me, but stock shots are really bad in BW, moreso than previous series it seems. The Arti Gym episode, for instance, was unbearable...

    Anyone else notice how well Zurrugu did in the beginning of the episode? I know the battle only lasted, what, less than a minute? Yet it showed some prowess when it dodged Scratch and used Headbutt. I know it wasn't a very seriou match, but it really does look like our little pantslizard is growing up. ;_;

    Loved the fluid animation in this one! Seems as though the Roketto Dan was more serious than goofy in this episodes while it was the reverse in BW29...

    Meron well get to it when she gets to it. Or maybe someone else will get to it first.

    Either way, just be patient.

    If the TRio keep using their jetpacks like this, they'll eventually run out of fuel mid-flight and crash into the ferris wheel.

    Am I the only one who's absolutely not surprised in the least that Kibago didn't battle Crimgan?

    Right now, he's developping for the both of them. Iris didn't really contribute to Kibago mastering Dragon Rage in this episode or previous ones. Kibago's growing but it's not translating into developpement for Iris at the moment cause she's not the catalyst.

    Because it's a starter and needs to be advertised more?

    Though... meh... between a bland boring fire pig and bland boring bug, I'll pick the pig cause it's cuter. The real question is: Why don't they give Pokabu an actual personality so that it becomes interesting, compelling and fun!

    If there's any pokémon who should have fought Crimgan, it should have been Zuruggu. It'd have an actual reason for losing besides "This is an Iris episode and therefore Iris has to win some COTD has to fight Iris' battles for her and earn her [Sarcastic Air Quotes]wins[/Sarcastic Air Quotes] for her. Plus... lulziness would have ensued. :P

    That's not the point Grave-E is making, at least, not how I see it. What I think Grave-E is saying is that in the past, the writers used Team Rocket as a crutch, something to lean on, a handy catalyst to make stuff happen. Whether it be capture/new moves/evolutions/etc. the writers often used TR as a cheap way to make those things happen instead of earning it and showing us some diversity and originality.

    Both of which this episode cruelly lacked. Overall, I stand by my earlier assessment that this was a somewhat entertaining, but predictable and cliché episode.

    Japanese titles are stupid that way.

    Realistically Iris had nothing to do with Crimgan's strength so I'm hesitant to even call it a win for her. At any rate, at least when (if) they do finally battle, using her own Pokemon, it might be an entertaining one she seems to know dragons moves well enough.

    But now that Kibago has gotten that dragon rage stuff out of the way, let's move on to Scraggy learning some new moves!

    I really didn't see the Crimgan vs Pokabu an Iris vs Ash battle. It looked like she was just guiding Emmy to help her learn to use Crimgan's full potential.

    Also I'm pretty sure that now Kibago mastered Dragon Rage, she do more stuff for now on.
