    I have a lot of respect for Iris after this episode, I think it was quite special how, though the episode hardley focused on Iris and Excadrill's relationship, they managed to note it so wonderfully, I don't think anything was said, just the way she looked at that drawing of him. <3

    A good episode afterall.. first half better than second.. again rushed gym battles being quite frequent in BW.. nevertheless Excadrill was able to score its revenge eventhough Haxorus was underplayed.. Druddigon defence seems to be high enough to block ice beam nd dragon rush(midway) and defeat Dragonite(taste of its own medicine).. fitting end to Iris saga being counted as future gym leader of Opelucid(fair enuf but needs to train her dragons more).. Hope that fraxure becomes one of Iris's pokes :)

    So, that's Iris sidelined after the saga. But with two Dragon types? Really?

    Really nice episode. The first half with Iris' problems living in society was really nice and quite amusing as well. I laughed when she climbed that tower to make herself calm down about upcoming battle against Shaga and when Junsar was after her.

    Soryu Gym was really cool with all those Dragon/Crimgan/Ononokus/Sazandora statues. The battle didn't last really long, but I'm just happy to see some Doryuzu battle screentime so I won't complain. I was also really surprised that Doryuzu vs Ononokus was first, I was expecting to see it last. Kairyu vs Crimgan was really nice battle also in animation-wise, and the music (Black & White Ending Theme) was perfect. Too bad it'll be probably replaced in the dub.
    And some great example about what we who don't know Japanese will miss: I didn't know about Iris becoming a Gym Leader before reading it from here.

    Technically, she's only a Gym Leader in White. But the games and anime are in a different canon, so

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    ...I think you gotta be pretty cold-hearted to not feel something when watching Iris's childhood this ep.

    But onto the quality of said episode, I thought it was a solid episode that did a decent job of showing Iris's character, and not going overboard.
    I don't think people are divided but a bit confused at the most that's going on. To me it feels that the attention and the devotion that Excadrill is getting is what Axew should be getting but since it was her first Pokemon, it of course make sense. I wonder why the writers didn't want her to have other dragon Pokemon other than her having a Excadrill when she was first introduced? I would have loved to have seen her with a Crimgan abit earlier but nevermind.

    That's neither here nor there, i.e average.

    I wanted the battle to last longer than it was :(

    Hoping for an Axew evolution soon. (Another gen for both maybe?)
    For the last time, BW is NOT a reboot.

    Considering her lack of interest and dislike for Soryu city, become a gym leader is not a good choice for her.
