    It's kind of weird that Iris would liken Parker to Joi and Junsa and not, say, Don George since the latter is a character exclusive to Best Wishes!. Don't be so quick to be done with this generation, guys!

    Those exterior shots of the boat had some really crappy CGI.

    The mystery was a bit easy to solve, but then again this *is* a show aimed for preschool / elementary school kids. Like most of these types of things, however, it required quite a bit of just random guessing on the detective's part. That water on the floor could have come from anywhere, Dent; you had absolutely no reason to jump to the conclusion that it came from Vanipetit making a key out of ice.
    That's totally and completely unnecessary.

    Can't it just be the same guy?

    It's a boring filler episode that had a tournament in place so the main characters will be too distracted to notice the thief going about on the ship.

    At the very least, Eelektrik got an anime debut in the form of a cameo. Now all we need to see (non legendary wise) for Gen V pokemon are Zoroark (BW127) and Klang.

    how so?
    looking at the info i see, im not sure what you mean
    is it what Cilan said?
    We never get to see the reason on why Dent is afraid of Choroneko.
    I did'nt see the episode yet, Did they cut it before he explained it or something.

    I had a feeling that the purrloin fear thing was gonna be a "never to be explained" sorta thing. Sorta like prof ivy and brock and what happened to make brock afraid of prof ivy.

    ETA: I saw the scene that ya'll is talking about when cilan was just gonna explain it, the ship's horn just honked loudly. I only understand 4 japanese words and am bad at it but i can make the scene out very clear.

    Just checked out the pics for this episode.

    Kibago got used and got hammered by Banipuuchi's Ice-type moves, that's better than Kibago having no formal battles at all as far I'm concerned. At least he managed decently and hey, Iris cringing at the appearance of Banipuuchi and the joke with her ginormous hair was nice too. Meh at Pikachu being used the whole tournament, why not Gamagaru or Lizardon? There are a million better choices than Pikachu. It's an Electric-type against another Electric-type(And Bug-type)....Nice to see Satoshi came out on top, wonder why Dento didn't enter? Gardie's Fire Fang looked cool. I'm not surprised Dento's Choroneko fear was left ambiguous, it's nothing really to get upset about and I half-expected it just to be a reference to the black cat superstition anyway. I only really wanted it revealed so he could get some development, but no point in crying over spilled milk. It's good he got an episode since he hasn't had one for a while.

    Yall can try to fake it if you want to, but...

    While this episode did have its funny moments, ultimately it was cheesy and boring as hell. These fillers are just too out there. I would have rathered another tournament.

    Excuse the pessimism, but am I the only one who is questioning how we got to this point as these episodes go on?

    Detective Dento episodes are never anything to write home about, the first and second episodes of Da! were pretty much a generic TR fillers, however the next episode, the Ibuki one, the Butterfree one, and a possible future string of episodes look promising. So, I wouldn't make final judgements yet.

    Dento hiding behind Iris outta fear of Choroneko? Where have I seen this before, WISHFULSHIPPING HINTS!

    Dento was so cute in this episode >_< I loved all his "¬¬" faces when looking Choroneko.

    But is sad to know they will never do a flashback with Baby Dento bullied by a Evil Choroneko =/

    I guess this episode was all right, IMO, even if it may just be because I thought it was at least better than the first two eps of Da!.

    I was glad to see Axew actually get stomped in a battle tournament, like what we should be seeing more often. No temporary power-ups, no pulling another powerful new move from nowhere - just a total loss for him and Iris.

    I loved this episode, it had lots of moments that made laugh. Overall I never got bored for a moment, I just wished most of the episodes would just as entertaining. Can't wait till this episode gets dubbed in English and Spanish.

    I haven't had a good long laugh in Pokemon for a long while, I almost spit out the food I was eating - in this scene:
    "Satoshi and Iris pulling Choroneko off other person (I forgot his name) and when they managed to take Choroneko off, he goes flying back and lands on Dento's hands!! And when Dento realizes what he caught, he screams really loud."

    The episode did have it's funny moments, but it was boring half of the time, and I couldn't believe how quickly the time went. Cilan was fun, but I don't think Ash did much to help the humor. Something interesting to note:

    >Tournament happens.
    >Iris loses in the first round.
    >Iris uses Axew and it doesn't learn a new move and loses.
    >Type-advantages working enough to beat the opponent.
    >Ash wins it.

    You'd think it would be considered as being the best tournament in BW!. :P

    This was definitely WATWAWAWAWAWWA!!\

    The only good thing was that we at least got a brief Cameo Appearence of an Elektrik. Now all we need to see is Zoroark in 2-3 Weeks and Klang.

    Well, now they can't say Ash left BW! without scoring a tournament win, I guess.

    Not exactly, but we can say he left Isshu without winning a damn thing. Heck, you can hardly say Isshu brought him anything special compared to other regions!

    Other than a palm tree and a fruit basket..

    Probably would have been had it:

    >Been Georgia in place of some CoTD named Tite.
    >Burgundy was there, and had beaten Cilan( who actually would've participated).
    >Trip would have signed up, but fell off the boat and drowned some time before the tournament started.
    >It was not condensed into 10 minutues.
    >Pikachu wasn't used.
    >Had some kind of actual reward.
