One of my favourite episodes in BW so far, very pleasantly surprised. I was originally annoyed when I discovered Oshawott would have yet another focus episode, but I suppose he hasn't appeared for some time, (Swadloon has been absent even longer, but who really cares about him?) and watching him clash with Meowth over Purrloin was hilarious, as was the twist ending.
I'm very intrigued to discover what happened to make Cilan so terrified of Purrloin. Maybe it's why he was so desperate to leave Striaton City, with so many Purrloins living nearby? (Could that also explain why he seems like a nervous wreck in the game?)
How did Ash manage to free his arms to release Snivy when his arms were stuck in quicksand a moment ago? Ah, never mind. I need to stop looking into stuff too much.
