I really liked this episode. omg that Pokedex voice.... So high and squeaky, I couldn't stop laughing about it for some reason. It was great to see Ash using a strategy with Froakie to battle Fletchling. I liked the animation of the two battles between Fletchling and Froakie.
Nice to see Fletchling feel bad afterwards about stealing the fruit thing from Dedenne.
My feeling re: Clemont is that he isn't actually the Gym Leader, and won't be until the end of the series. Maybe something he does over the course of the plot will get him that position, but the way he acted in Lumiose City (especially around the tower) just doesn't say "I'm a Gym Leader" to me. It says "I'm kind of a loser and I am aware of this but I am going to do better!" Even with the low self-esteem Clemont seems to have, it's kind of hard to imagine that he would think so lowly of himself after he put in all the effort to become a Gym Leader.
Besides, he seems too responsible as a person to just walk away from the Gym for three months or however long it takes Ash to run around half of Kalos. Maybe he left the AI in charge or something.
Oh, that's another good possibility. In that case, I have to wonder who the stand-in Gym Leader must be; his parent, or another sibling, or just a really skilled Trainer in his Gym that he trusts with the job?
EDIT: If I'm remembering correctly, I think Brock and Misty did the same thing, leaving the Gyms to their siblings while they went to travel with Ash. Then again, it's been a very long time since I've watched the Kanto series, so I could be wrong. Have there been any other instances like this?
why is there so much discussion of clemont not being the gym leader.... he is. he's in the credits, and if you ignore those, we have footage of him battling in his gym against a fake opponent, a robot he himself created. he's the gym leader. let's set that aside now. the question is, why is he keeping it a secret? why did he walk away so easily? will the big reveal of his secret be handled well? why does he has the gym set up to murder innocent people? where the hell are his and bonnie's parents to tell him to stop putting his little sister into dangerous situations and send her back to elementary school?
looking at upcoming episodes, we won't find out for a while. but in the meantime, he is the gym leader, so let's put that one to rest at least.
As I said, pretty much the only thing I based that theory off of was my intuition on the situation, and as I haven't seen the anime in a while it could have easily been wrong :p But it's clear that Clemont isn't the average Gym Leader, at the absolute least.
I know he doesn't always do it but I kind of want to see Citron in all keigo. I mean his speech patterns are waaay more formal than the other traveling companions. But I just have a weakness for adorable dorks using keigo n_n I noticed it when I rewatched this episode
for like the fourth time omg
Ratings are up - 5.1%. Not a big change from last week.
I liked this episode for showing off more of Froakie, and how its frubbles could be used in battle. They remind me of how Oshawott would use his scalchop. The animation was a lot better too, and the environment was gorgeous to look at. I'm also liking how excited Ash is being, I never knew he could get that impressed with technology. With Bonnie and Clemont being siblings they interacted a lot more together than the other companions in one episode, but that may change when Serena joins and they have somebody new to talk to. I'd also like seeing more of Clemont's inventions and what other cool things they could do. Fletchling seems like another generic bird with very little personality so far, but now that it will be a Fire/Flying type it will at least be more unique than the other Flying/Normal bird Pokemon Ash has, and competing in the first gym should be good in giving it screen time. Overall it was a nice episode to watch, and I have no complaints about how things were handled. I'm not that fussed with Serena not being with the group, but we've at least seen some more personality from her, and I liked how she interacted with her mother too.
I liked the ep much. Ashs strategy for battling was great and Froakies copy of itself was great too. The battle itself was awesome and I liked how Fletchling was not captured with the first Pokeball Ash threw.
Clemonts invention was good too especially Bonnies reaction too it. And then how wrong it worked was great too. This series does everything right it seems!
Lastly the TRio was great in this ep and pretty funny too(poor James did not get his food). The capture of Inkay was good too. James always catches his pokemon by giving them food. But the sandwiches also got into the pokeball. How does that work?
