    Pokémon Sommelier Showdown! Tasting Battle!!


    Animation - Team Kato
    Screenplay - Junki Takegami
    Storyboard - Kazuomi Koga
    Assistant director - Kazuomi Koga
    Animation director - Tatsuya Annoura


    While on the way to Souryuu City for Satoshi's final badge, a man who had been searching for Dent appears! Before they know it, Satoshi and his friends find themselves shoved into a car and taken to Chikakuno Town ("Nearby Town"). They're taken to the Hattori Manor where a young girl named Momotchi is struggling to choose a starter pokemon that will help her become an A-Class Pokemon Sommelier. Another member of the Hattori family, Pinot Noir, shows up and suggests she goes with the "Bulb Pokemon" Turine, but Momotchi still looks worried. Suddenly, an S-Class Sommelier named "Tabernet" also enters the room! But hasn't Dent seen him before...?

    Nothing ever goes Burgundy's way.

    She's the new Team Rocket. Hell, she even blasted off.

    I have no words to describe this episode.

    Ok, I will say this episode felt like Junki Takegami was crying out how he missed the Rockets. The whole Dent being captured and dragged off to a mansion, not to mention Cabernet blasting off...

    Cilan was the last bastion of heterosexuality, and Pinot Noir should be in the anime. Forever. He's definitely now one of my favorite characters of the day.

    As a die hard Sommelier fan, I absolutely LOVED the episode and enjoyed every single moment.

    Probably one of the detailed Best Wishes episodes, for me at least. EXQUISITE!

    This episode had a very heterosexual taste!

    I am now utterly convinced that Sommeliers are just escaped mental patients. Why are they sniffing people? O_o
    CTabernet made this episode as usual, maybe if she spent less time stalking people from the bushes she'd be B-rank by now...

    The battle sucked though, Dent get yourself some new strategies please.

    This episode... this episode... this episode...

    I laughed. I liked it a lot and had a blast watching it. Cabernet, never change you adorable psycho! XD I liked how much detail Dent gave about his process. I like Pinot Noir (did he really match a guy into marrying his Gothiruselle, lol), he and his Choroneko were lulzy. The battle was the only point where I thought the episode could be improved, that and more Cabernet. XD

    Burgundy merely wanted to make the episode more heterosexual, but upon the reveal that, instead of being an S Rank Sommelier, she were merely a C Rank one, she clearly did not have the skills to preserve any male-on-male in.

    I agree, what was said? And I thought I heard something at the end of the episode about a gym, what was that?

    Dear god.. Burgundy is a joke she's still a C rank Sommelier. The writers need to give Cilan a competent rival not a complete joke.
