    I liked that Pokabu got a win here, as well as Tsutarja.

    Kibago and Zurrug are adorable, especially the former.

    Overall a pretty good episode. Was a bit disappointed that Hatoboh wasn't out with the others at the start though.

    Yeah great episode, I'm not even refering to Tranquill but the shot with them eating and sleeping should have all the pokemons.

    Its even more stupid that Dent is making food for Satoshi pokemons and Axew and his are in the pokeball, from a sense stand point it makes no sense XD, but I ignored that after a while seeing nothing else would come out besides Tranquill since we knew from the cast list.

    Pretty cool episode.

    That Gothimu need to GTFO

    She was really annoying

    Also I think Kibago thinks of Zugguru more than a brother....

    I was able to see most of the episode. Koharu managed to be more entertaining than I expected, from sneaking away during Dent's ramblings to knowing just which buttons to press to get Satoshi to agree to battle with her. The image of Zurug leaving in the middle of the episode (Was it Kibago imagining that? I had to step out of the room at the time) was pretty funny as well.

    I also liked seeing Satoshi's pokemon battle for a change. I wish someone would just freakin' evolve already, though.

    A rather enjoyable episode actually. Tepig and Snivy got much needed wins against Mandibuzz/Gothia. Snivy, and Scraggy continue to the best parts of Ash's team currently too. I'll echo the disappointment with Tranquil not being out in the beginning. Come one, I want to see it in a trainer battle already.

    Still have no idea on what they said. The interaction between Kibago and Zuruggu is adorable. I can't really say much about Koharu, but she's not as boring as most CotD. For the good parts, Tepig and Snivy really have more focus this episode.On the other hand, at least Tranquill appeared. Seeing Ash's team, I guess we know who got Oak'd/Juniper'd for now. Other than that, Ash is still as impulsive as before...

    Nothing important happens. Surprised Tepig got a win over his opponent considering how outmatched he appeared to be in the preview. Wasn't surprised that Snivy fought and defeated Gothita.

    Koharu has two badges so she might be a possible Unova league opponent in the future.

    Nothing else to say about this episode.

    Yeah, kinda sucks about Tranquill. She deserves much more screentime after being shunted to the side so often.

    All in all, this looked like an entertaining episode. As usual, Scraggy and Snivy are full of awesome, though I didn't really like that bratty Gothita.

    Haven't seen the episode yet, but...

    Apparently Kiba and Zuruggu have strangely yaoi-esque scenes?

    Oh you

    Scraggy, and Axew have quite the Bromance thing going on.

    Minor detail, but I loved the way Snivy was sitting on that rock while watching the battle between Ash, and Koharu.

    I liked the opening scene. Axxew and Scraggy make great sparring partners. Looks like the Cotd may potentially be more than that because she has badges. Potential league rival?

    Great episode, glad Pokabu got a win and Tsutarja was a complete badass as usual.
