    Okay I've only seen screenshots, but the amount of Clemont service this episode has provided is INVAULABLE, god bless the pokemon anime.

    I'm quite amused at this screen in particular because it looks like Serena is ready to throw down to reclaim her man


    Clemont, Bonnie and Limone make such a fun family, it's really lovely to see their contrasting personalities.

    A great episode and good to see Citron gaining confidence in himself. Elezard was adorable when it saw its trainer and started doing a happy dance.

    As of this episode, once again a different verse from the song is used for the ending theme. This time it mentions Horubee, Harimaron and Yayakoma.

    I like Heliolisk far more after this episode than I did seeing it in game - the way the frill on its neck was used also helps explain the fairly odd seeming sun stone evolution. The Magnemite/ton with personalities were nice as well, I always like seeing the non-'animal' Pokemon displaying emotion.


    Bunnelby took a lot more damage than I'd have thought it would have been able to, but popping out from the Dig and into Double Team looked great.

    I still find it odd that Gym Leaders don't need to have Gym Badges, especially as Clemont doesn't meet his own standards for being able to challenge his Gym. It's especially odd considering the flipside of it where you have hundreds of people competing in the leagues, so with the amount of people able to defeat 8 Gym leaders relatively high, it makes it even stranger that they don't need to have a single badge.

    Thinking about it, I don't particularly like how Clemont was seemingly willing to just ditch his Pokemon instead of doing something about the robot sooner. The least he could do is call his father to the Gym before running away. I assume they were handed down from his father and are 'Gym' Pokemon rather than his specifically, but considering how affectionate they were towards him, it doesn't sit right.

    Hopefully this is just the start of his development, I'm worried that they seemed to tie up too much of his story here.

    To be honest, Serena and Ash learning that Clemont is a Gym Leader is something I would've like to see later in the series. But on the other hand, later in the series would mean revealing it just before Ash is about to challenge the Gym, which would've been really cliché, so I think this was very well done.

    Did anyone notice how it was the narrator the one who hosted the Pokémon Quiz eyecatch this week? I think they're trying to use different important characters, but they'll run out of characters by XY010.

    Also, this:
    Unlike Sarah Natochenny, our current voice actor for Ash is not a sound-alike. The character's personality has also severely changed due to the voice actor switch.
    Please sign on "FIRMAR", and help us make Ash Ketchum's voice actor return! We Latin American fans would really appreciate it!
    Edit: We've reached the goal of 10000: Gabriel Ramos is currently planning his return! Thank you everyone!

    Citron!! <3

    I just pray he doesn't follow the path of most of Satoshi's other sidekicks in being sidelined for the rest of the series. For the first time in a long time I feel like they've created an original personality in his character instead of just a cartoon with a number of running gags. With the introduction of Limone you can see a great family dynamic bubbling along in the bg. And another first (as far as I'm concerned) is I can actually understand why he has chosen to go on a journey with Satoshi, and their budding friendship feels real.

    How difference in the quality of battles....
    How fluid is the animation in Horubee vs Elezardon!
    I will try to watch complete and in detail but there's very few stock animation in the episode.

    About Eureka, one thing of her personality: she loves loves pokemon.

    I'm impressed what I'm getting. Compared to late BW it's a lot... and thecfans are noticing now.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GO, GO, GO, <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    I want to start with XY as soon as is possible.

    I have unpopular opinions: I prefer an older character returning but it isn't from the original trio. I was one of the few who liked both DP and BW. And I think that TR shouldn't leave in the anime.

    It's amazing just how removing the stock moving backgrounds and having attacks occur in the 'real' world has improved the battles in this series. Man, now it feels like they should have been ditched years ago.

    Seems like a great episode (only seen the images). Great to see Heliolisk, really come to love it. Sad Clemont won't take it with him since it seems attached to Clemont too, but it's understandable some Pokémon need to be at the Gym to battle challengers. I just hope Clemont will use it in his future Gym Battle against Ash.

    On a side note, to me it's REALLY obvious who Blaziken Mask is now, but I guess it just really is obvious.

    Episode was actually pretty decent and Clemont is starting to grow on me. He is such enthusiast, pasionate about technology and real genious when it comes to science. I liked how we get to hear more about his backstory, mess his robot creation caused in running gym while true owner was on journey and get to know hisand Bonnie father Limone. Who was more enjoyable than i thought he would be acting pretty natural being one of those mature, yet quirky adults having spirit inside himself.

    Battle between Robot and Clemont was ok, but not that extraordinary imo using typical double team and dodge waiting for right moment strategy. But it was still good enough to catch my attention and keep me interested. I liked how Ash yelled at Clemont encouraging him to find courage and battle Robot reclaiming who is real head of the gym. Ash is definitely serving as inspiration, motivator for Clemont to become stronger and more confident in himself and this episode along with previous one based on Rhyhorn racing is showing that.

    Serena and Bonnie already established pretty sweet and endearing dynamic, making me remember why i always wanted that writers for change include two girls in group(like Misty,May in Hoenn which could lead to many enjoyable and cute interactions,or conflict contrast in characterization would bring). Bonnie seem to view Serena as some sort of older, protective figure feeling more secure when being around her and this definitely opens opportunity in creating some sort of older sister elationship, having their girl talks, moments of getting on each other nerves and times of bonding together becoming closer as friends.
    So far im liking development of bond starting to happen between Serena and Bonnie, but between Ash and Clemont as well working as very solid group so far.

    Im only worried how bond is perhaps too solid at this point and time with there usually being needed to pass some period so that people could get more familiar with themselves and adjust to esch ther, leaving time for fermentation and spontabeous development of strong bond over time. Leading to close and full of support friendship.

    Otherwise if it happens too soon with no proper build up current dynamic between XY group might run ninto danger of ending forced and rushed. So hopefully writers wont fire all cards on table already, but as of now im definitely enjoying in Ash, Clemont, Bonnie and Serena interactions bringing humor, positive atmosphere and various crazy moments(in good way that is).

    Overall great episode indeed.

    This was a Good Episode and I REALLY LIKE Clemont a lot now.

    Clemont nervous but has Courage by the End was Great. He is has Great Character and I Hope he won't be Wasted like Brock got eventually and Cilan a little bit so I Hope for the Best.

    Clemont's Heliodisk was so Cool I Thought and got along with Clemont Nicely thought as well.

    It is REALLY OBVIOUS WHO Blaziken Mask is.

    I Give it a 9.8 VERY GOOD EPISODE CAN'T WAIT
    FOR THE Subs to come Out.

    Clemont's in-gym pokemon were ridiculously weak, especially his signature Heliolisk.

    For a Gym Leader that requires challengers to have at least four badges when challenging this gym, Clemont's gym pokemon shouldn't be losing out to recently obtained pokemon like Bunnelby, Serena's Fennekin and Ash's Froakie.
