    The Dento focus was a liiiieeee ;_;

    Of course oblivious Ash will never be boring for me. Loved how he thought that when Dento was saying that they got together in "couples" (in his usual gratuitous Engrish, o'course :P) he thought it meant that they were friends. And in the end, when the cotonee finally got his mate, they were "best friends" XDDDD

    Fairly average episode. I kinda wish that they focused more on the romance and less on the battling. Love that the "baby" pokemon got some training in though, and for once, they were the teachers. Seems like Kiba is really getting the hand of his dragon rage ^^

    Cotton guard looks...scary ;_; Too...much...fluff...

    kind of a lot of effort to put into training a random pokemon. and it seemed to work better than it ever has on his actual pokemon.

    really liked that part where death the kid squealed about how symmetrical that heart-shape was. er, dento squealing about the romance i mean.

    Pretty good episode. I too would've liked a bit more romance, but what we saw was fun. Clueless Satoshi was hilarious, and it was great seeing how strong Kibago was. Iris with the apples was a pretty hilarious running gag. And Dent? XD NEVER change.

    Even though the Rockets took the predictable route, at least they had a well thought out plan on catching the Monmen. (And how cute was the Koromori/Musashi scene?) Thankfully they didn't hog much time (Where has this been the last 14 years?) and I'm glad it wasn't a complete "Bye Bye Butterfree" ripoff with the Monmen impressing the other one just by defeating the Rockets. It was nice to see everyone involved.

    I think witers give Satoshi, Dent and Iris equal screentime and focus in this episode. It's first in BW saga (maybe even whole anime?). And I lol'd at "competent" TR. Letting Pikachu destroy their machine and beated by pokemon they did captured is very competent of them. Their "escape" with jetpacks at the end was a really forced cop-out...

    martianmister was referring to the fan that prevented them from following, that Pikachu did destroy.

    But to be fair, Team Rocket could not give a shit about the giant fan, they were already zooming away in their vehicle. So I don't see how it proves Team Rocket are incompetent, they just didn't give a shit. Though I guess it is kind of their fault that it got destroyed so quickly.

    Don't usually come to the forums, but I just gotta fangasm about this episode. Dent...YOU'RE TOO CUTE. HNNGG Shame he didn't catch it though. Would have loved for him to have a Whimsicott. Here's a screenshot of Dent love-gasming, on the house, free of charge.

    I was talking about their big fan.

    Huh? It was all of them, not just one Monmen and it has nothing with his impressing her.

    Writers trying to show them as competent than their pre-BW selves, (to justify TR's lack of comedy) even through they're not. They should be blasted-off with that explosion.

    No, that is what Musashi was saying. It isn't like Bye Bye Butterfree because it wasn't just one Monmen that defeated Team Rocket.

    Oh, my grammar again...

    I really liked Satoshi, Dent and Iris' equal screentime and focus in this episode. This makes me feel like they are a real team rather than a protagonist and his sidekicks...
