    Default BW 088 "Sommelier Detective Dent! The Mystery of the Missing Kumasyun!!"

    Sommelier Detective Dent! The Mystery of the Missing Kumasyun!!



    Animation - Team Kato
    Screenplay - Yukiyoshi Ōhashi
    Storyboard - Yūji Asada
    Assistant director - Takenori Kawada
    Animation director - Masaaki Iwane



    While continuing to train together in Sazanami Town, Satoshi and his friends meet a boy named Chris who's looking for a Kumashun. After hearing Chris' story, Satoshi-tachi also become worried about the pokemon and agree to help look for it. Dent uses his skills as a Detective Sommelier to spot some strange footprints leading into a nearby forest and deduces that they belong to whatever it is that took Kumashun. As they enter the forest, our heroes run into a Tsunbear! Is it possible that this pokemon had something to do with Kumashun's disappearance? Can Detective Dent uncover the truth?

    This episode in a nutshell.



    Though, honestly, it wasn't very exciting.

    I did, however, love the scene where Chris tries to recall Beartic, and it just sits there.

    This ep was just mind-numbingly boring and a total waste of Iwane's skills. Plain and simple.

    A pure filler, and I am not impressed as its not so funny :(
    Random Focus Blast hitting, if they make Scraggy master it in this episode, I would say its better.

    Dawn mentioned Brock again
    I didn't get to really see what we saw on screen but I did hear it, apparently she reacted to Cilan being weird again and told Iris that Brock was weird too and had his girls thing... then the girls are like "oh, boys..." LOL

    There's something that really stood out for me in this episode. But I can't quite remember what it was...


    Oh right! Now I remember.


    Takeshi gets mentioned again! Come on writers stop teasing, bring out the episode were he visits Isshu.

    Oh and Sommelier Detective Dent, he's always enjoyable. Was really glad to see that talent of his again.

    I thought it was an ok episode. The main plot is boring as hell, but I was happy to hear Takeshi mentioned again and I did find Hikari's reactions to Dent's failure as a detective funny. I liked Iris and Hikari agreeing that men are a pain XD More than I expected from the episode, to be honest.

    Average episode, I liked the interactions, I thought that Dent and Hikari were funny in this, but yeah, not this isn't one for the ages. XD

    SERIOUSLY ,
    How long we have to wait for Scraggy to master that Dam ''Focus Blast'' ?
    Not to mention the fact that Scraggy still need to learn another non-fighting new move!
    Writer could deal with that Focus Blast Off-screen !
    Does I have to wait 2 more episode just for Scraggy to Master Focus Blast & Learn New Move!
    I hate Stupid pure Filler Like that , This Type of Episode waste Time !
    Now I have to wait One more weak for A Tournament that might meant for Trip!!!

    What's with yet another mention of Brock? Unless Dawn's point is to bring up the fact that Ash travels with relatively creepy people, it seems odd to mention him yet again if it isn't going to build up to something in a future episode.

    I liked the battle at the start, though a bit annoying it didn't really have a conclusion. Considering Mamoswine is heading for either a big win or loss against Dragonite, it may as well have had a loss/win respectively here to even things up a bit.

    Meloetta is starting to annoy me now - I don't like how the conflict is deliberately made with Piplupowott just to have nearly a minute of Meloetta singing and comments on how wonderful it is. It ruined the pacing of the episode and just seems to have served to drag out the already strained plot. I'd have much preferred the Pokemon being given a bit of extra time to play in that room - why can't they have fun for once? Release all the Pokemon out of their balls and let Cilan do the detective stuff on his own.

    On the other hand, I liked Axew here - his joy at discovering the minor clue was great. At least Axew was having some fun this episode, because otherwise for something broadly aimed at comedy, it really failed. Cilan's personality is all well and good, but I'd be quite annoyed at someone making up crack theories while you are trying to look for your Pokemon, like spending two minutes telling a story when all the kid had to do was try using his Pokeball on it.

    I liked how Dawn was smart here and was the one to suggest trying to return Beartic to its ball to see if it is the kid's Cubchoo
    Reminds me when Dawn used to have some ideas or find out things in the DP eps (Luxray ep, Spiritomb ep, etc)

    I've got to be honest here, this 'season 2' hasn't really been setting my world on fire. All of the episodes thus far have been pretty bland imo, and apart from one or two 'heh' moments, I don't think this one is exempt from that assessment.

    Meloetta also feels very shoe-horned into all of this.

    Eh, just another random ep. At least they had the sense for Ash and Dawn to tie, although it's still looking more and more like Dawn is the expert now instead of Ash.
