    Sommelier-Detective Dent! Tabunne Disappearance Case!!
    On the way to Raimon City, Satoshi and his friends run into a Tabunne who is acting strangely. As it turns out, Tabunne from all over the city are disappearing! Who could be behind this?

    Aw, the kids were so cute in this episode. Reminded me of little kids playing make-believe.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    If by cute you mean "annoying", I agree. Worst BW episode yet by far.

    And for an episode with Dent's name in the title, he did surprisingly little.

    It was a little lackluster, yeah. But Dent tried to make use of what screentime he had. But to me, his actions were same-old, same-old.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Yeah, I was pretty bored too. The only other highlight besides Dent being all "It's detective time!" was the Rocket motto, but even that was spoiled by the DP music.

    The episode Looks good to me but I think there's just not enough Dento and TR screentime, I was hoping to see them battle. I was just wondering what technique TR use to let Tabunne walking toward their place and why Dento tell Ash to use Roggenrola for. I thought Yanappu/pansage will be in the episode (too bad he's not in this episode, this made me sad because I was waiting for him to come out from the start). I actually love the way Dento introduce himself to TR and how they introduce back.

    Filler or not, I found this to be a great episode. The setting was nice, the kids were cool, Gothita was cure, Cilan was awesome with his Detective time and in his entrance talking to Team Rocket and the Audino were cute.

    It was...alright. The two kids were only there to show off their respective pokemon but otherwise added nothing of value to the episode.

    I was also kind of annoyed by how everyone's eyes were glued to their little iPad things for half the episode when all they had to do was look three feet ahead of them to find out where the pokemon were. They really seemed to make things more difficult than they needed to.

    I did like all the Dent detective stuff, but, like Adamant said, he did surprisingly little. If the writers didn't even bother with those two little kids, they would have had enough screentime for him to do more.

    They were using a special frequency provided to them by Seger-Hakase.

    And while I'm on the subject, I think it's safe to say that Seger-Hakase is pretty much the new Namba-Hakase.

    and why Dento tell Ash to use Roggenrola for.
    Dongoro can detect waves that human beings cannot, apparently. Dent deduced that the Tabun'ne were being affected by sound waves that only they can hear, so he thought the best way to find the source of these waves is to use a different pokemon that can also detect them.

    It was interesting to see all the Audino use different beams at once.

    Uh...was this a pure filler? No one evolved or anything? Or was the episode just a bore? First time in a while since I've missed an episode of the anime.

    A little bit from column A, a little bit from column B.

    I could hardly wait for the screenshots!

    Where are the twerps now? If you pardon the pun, I haven't the foggiest.

    Pikachu spots one very zonked out Audino. Those eyes...

    Ash? You already know what an Audino is. So, uh, why the Pokédex?

    Off the Audino goes. As does the fog. That was quick. Also, the group is now faced with an Officer Jenny and two kids. They look maaaad...

    The boy's Solosis some sort of Psychic-type attack to try to, uh, extract a confession. Speaking of Solosis, I always wondered what that yellow thing on it was. I thought it looked like a crown from the sprite, turns out it's some sort of curl. Neat.

    Lovin' the twerps' 'yearrrrgh!' faces before the title card. Even moreso since Pikachu looks confused and Axew doesn't look the least bit concerned about this situation.

    The trio continue to protest their innocence 'til Jenny gets a call. Looks like the group is off the hook!

    I'm assuming the detective kids introduce themselves here. No idea what their names could be, but meh.

    Eeeee! Gothita! Looks like Iris shares my sentiments. <3

    Hehehe, the detective kids have a disagreement. Gothita looks miffed, too! Solosis looks pretty chill.

    Another call later, and everyone's at the Pokémon Centre. An Officer Jenny doing policework...wow. 'Scuse me while I collect myself.

    Here we go! Cilan wants to help out! It's Detective Time! Iris and Axew's reaction...priceless!

    Oh, hang on! Just look at Cilan and Jenny next to each other. Teenagers at a realistic height? In my Pokémon? More likely than you think.

    And the detective kids bicker again. Twice. Vitriolic best buds, I take it?

    My, what a fancy-looking piece of technology! Haha, Ash looks clueless!

    Okie-doke, let's get to investigating. Ah, so they're putting tracking devices on all the Audino. Sure seem to be a lot of Audino in this town...

    Ooh, hello. One of the Audino is wandering off. Its Trainer recalls it. That makes the old bloke smarter than 90% of most CoTDs right there. Doesn't work, but hey, he tried and that's what counts.

    Wah! An Audino jumps out of a window! Granted, it was less than a metre off the ground, but still...it jumped out of a window!

    Now, what about the Audino that Jenny and Cilan are tracking? Ah, there it goes. Next is to track 'em on the [STRIKE]iPad[/STRIKE] digital map.

    Solosis and Gothita use their psychic powers to retrieve two of the Audino. What to do about the other one? Why, follow it, of course! The tracker is foolpro--oh, never mind. It fell off. What now?

    Cilan seems to have an idea... Roggenrola, eh? Er, yeah, sure. I suppose it is a giant walking ear.

    Oh, the two Audino fall into trances again. Shall we follow?

    Dum-de-dum, a-walkin' we go... What an odd place for a ladder. Taking the ladder away, Audino? Pfft, like that'd stop Ash. He's such a lovable moron, isn't he?

    Heehee, happy Solosis! Well, time to levitate everyone up the cliff! I love the idea of utilising a Psychic Pokémon's powers to their fullest extent. It's awesome!

    More disagreements with the kid detectives. Let me guess: 'they have crushes on each other but can't admit it'?

    There's a bridge. What could possibly go wrong? Why, the Audino wrecking it, of course! Ka-splash! More levitation, from Gothita this time. Hmm... The boy detective appears to be none too pleased... Gotta ask, why levitate Solosis across? Couldn't it just float to the other side?

    D'aww, the girl detective and Iris appear to be best friends now!

    A windfarm? No prizes for guessing the Rockets are behind this scheme. Don't have a clue as to why they're doing this, but Professor Seger seems to have come up with it, so it's gotta be good.

    Cilan sure knows how to make an entrance, doesn't he?

    Jessie and James high-five at the end of the motto. Cool!

    I assume that Solosis is using Hidden Power. But what move is Gothita using?

    That was Psywave that Solosis used on Yamask, right?

    Roggenrola hits the machine with Stone Edge, which sets the Audino free. They're out for blood and blast the ever-living crap outta the machine! Nice use of Audino's varied offensive movepool there, writers! Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball and the others I'm not sure about.

    Blah blah blah, the Rockets jetpack away.

    All's well that ends well!

    I hope we get to see more of Cilan's detective side, there wasn't much of it from what I've seen.

    Nobody yet mentioned that the Map/GPS/Controller they used was a reference of the newly announced Wii U? It was really easy to notice it.

    Besides that, i liked this episode. Dento FTW.

    No it wasn't.

    Oh...I guess, to be fair, when I first saw it I was like "lol stealth Wii U advertising!", but there's no way that it's a purposeful reference to a product JUST revealed to the public this week placed into an episode of Pokemon that was animated months ago.
