    So what makes a Pokemon Sommelier different from the Friendship Checker App. on the Poketch?
    Nothing. The only difference is Pokemon Sommeliers are people. If the poketch was introduced in Unova they'd all go redundant.

    Anyway, Cilan's voice is OK, I guess. I like looker and his voice, and I have no issues with the voice actor, but I don't really care what he sounds like anyway. Although I did spend the whole episode laughing originally.. lol.

    Who voiced Cress?

    It's probably who ever voices James. If you listen you can hear a bit of James' voice in Cress's

    I'm glad they seem to have fixed the problem with the PokeDex not having a filter on its voice.

    Also, re-watching this episode reminded me of just how intrusive the new Team Rocket can be. Talk about ruining the flow of the episode.

    Can't win them all Pikachu. I'd forgotten how cute Tepig was, when he ran back to Ash after KO:ing Pansear, such a happy smile! Cute!
    Only thing that annoyed me was Cilan's voice, not because I didn't like it, but because it sounded so familiar and I couldn't place it at first.

    Lolz...

    A friendship checker tells you how much the Pokemon likes you. A Sommelier tells you how "compatible" you are with the Pokemon. I think of Ash, Paul and Chimchar. Chimchar (maybe at first) liked Paul, but his battling style wasn't suitable with Paul, and Ash's battling style fit Chimchar perfectly.

    Everything else is good. I knew Cilan sounded kind of like Sonic from Sonic X when I first watched this.
    Are you kiding me? This wasn't as bad as Misty was before both of Ash's battle with Brock and with Surge. So Iris is just mild.

    At least Misty had a good reason to be mad at Ash. I'd be pissed too if some kid stole my bike and then destroyed it. Iris on the other hand is calling Ash out just because he doesn't know things about a region he's never fucking been to.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    I noticed this, too. At least it seems like these little kinks are being fixed as the show progresses (filter on the Pokédex, WTP having the Pokémon say its name).

    Lolz! Seriously though, I gotta agree with Queen on this one. That boy is about as British as pecan pie.

    (I, on the other hand, am British - although I'm told that my hybrid accent makes me sound more like an Australian - and I am neither aristocrat or snob. Not that I don't fantasise about having my own personal snooty butler to turn unwanted callers away.)

    Did you hear the way he pronounced "itself" during his battle with Ash? That was SO Jimmy...

    I could not agree more. If you're gonna criticize, back your shit up and show you're more than just talk, which... just... isn't... happening... with Iris.

    It's more than just checking the bond between a trainer and his/her pokémon, which is what the friendship checker does, since it's also about checking the compatibility in battle, whether the pokémon's fighting style and the trainer's fighting style are compatible, which was shown in this episode during the battle between Ash and Cilan when Cilan takes about seeing different tastes.

    It will be expanded upon next week and in a future episode (BW019) in which Cabernet actually states the various roles of a sommelier, when she says that, besides compatibilities, Ash can ask her about customizing pokémon food, planning battle strategies and selecting accesories for the pokémon...

    ... which is an easy mistake to make if you only look at screen caps from episodes instead of watching them. But I'm sure Croag just made an honest mistake, she clearly wouldn't be trying to constantly downplay Cilan's goal and appearances because she's still bitter about the writers replacing Brock. No, she really is above that. Water under the bridge as they say. It was definitely an honest mistake.

    But BW009 showed she's nothing more but talk. She's a beginner girl who hates losing, has a baby Pokémon unable to battle properly and a mole who just won't obey. They only reason she calls Ash a child/kid is because she indeed knows more stuff than him and is more mature than him.

    So here are the VAs for the brothers: Lucien Dodge (Chili), Jimmy Zoppi (Cress) & Jason Griffith (Cilan).

    Yeaaah...I still can't see what's the big deal about a Connoisseur.

    No, she doesn't. Ash knows the same stuff she does about types and the theory of battles, but unlike her he knows theory's not everything and that in battles, you need more than type advantages. Ash is definitely more knowledgeable than her and was consistantly shown to be so on the show.

    is more mature than him.
    Same way she laughed at Scraggy for just knowing two moves, until Ash called her out on the fact that Kibago knew just as many moves and had just as little experience... Right, mature...

    The whole point of the "childish" thing is the irony behind it. Iris is the childish one in the bunch who always tries to act above other poeple.

    It'll be better explained in the 19th episode of BW, but essentially, they are there to judge how well a pokémon and their trainer work together in battle, and help them become a better pair through advising them on diet, accessories and battle strategies.

    Yeah, my apologies. An honest mistake on my part. I'd never downplay Cilan in fear of leaving a bitter taste for him. What's done is done, and I'm in no way bitter about Brock. In fact I embraced Cilan the moment he appeared. Sorry about the confusion, I was very tired but will never speak a bad word of Cilan again.
