    NEW MOVE! ABOUT TIME!

    And... TAKESHI TAKESHI TAKESHI TAKESHI TAKESHI TAKESHI TAKESHI!

    Oh my God! What a fun episode, WAY better than I expected... You know, typical Iwark filler but I was wrong.

    And DOUBLE KODOMO NE? Dawn, seriously? Poor Ash. Miju/Pocha rivalry is simply hillarious, girls' hangout moments were simply awesome :D

    LOVED IT!!!

    Dawn mentioned Brock (with a flashback to him) after seeing that Cilan also cooks... she also mentioned Brock wants to be a doctor now
    Also, Dawn actually agreed with Iris' "kodomo ne" and even said it together with Iris later in the ep

    OMG, Dawn is such an Iris-wannabe.

    And YAY, Shiny Onix!

    I am kinda happy to see the Brock reference in the episode too. :)

    And the Iris and Dawn moments looked cool too,

    Dawn has picked up Iris' catchphrase, and both direct it at Ash...dear god.

    Anyway this was a pretty fun episode, interactions and all. Nice to see the group actually training their Pokemon too. Nice Brock reference too.

    The cancer that is Iris' catchphrase now infected Hikari as well? She really destroys everything she...wait, what? No, I actually quite liked Hikari's and Iris' interaction this episode. I only saw the second half of it but the episodes looks like a good one.
    Too bad I missed the Takeshi cameo. I was one of the view people who actually liked him till the very end.

    Miju learned Hydro Pump so sudden and without prior training of said move...that damn Gary Stu...
    Pochama learned something new as well I think but I overheard Iris' comment after Pochama used the attack so I'm not sure.
    Miju & Pocha, it was expected but the writers will really milk the shit out of these two guys won't they?

    I hate that Satoshi's been traveling around with Iris and Dent all this time without so much as mentioning Takeshi's name. I mean, you only traveled with him through four regions (five if you count the Battle Frontier, for some reason), you could have mentioned him at *some* point.

    I guess this also means he never bothered to bring up Kenji, Haruka, or Masato, either.

    HYDRO PUMP! I'm lovin it! I mentiond it in the preview thread! And it was about time.

    Brock! I <3 him, and it's good they don't act like he never was in the group!

    Piplup's Bubble move looked for me like Water pulse, the way it was used by Trip's Frilish! Or am I wrong!_ and that headbut looked like a AQUAJET gone WRONG! _

    The Takeshi cameo was probably the highlight of the episode for me as well, to be honest! XD Even though he wasn't my favorite character I love it when the anime acknowledges its past (NOW WE NEED TAKESHI TO APPEAR FOR REAL!).

    Otherwise, it was a decent episode I suppose. It was great to see Meloetta do something as opposed to just sitting around looking pretty. And of course it's always nice to see Hikari and Iris get along well. Sure, I suppose Miju's learning of Hydro Pump was a bit sudden but I think it works well, given his whole rivalry with Pochama.
