Yeah, count me in on the bullshit train, especially with a Pokemon as profitable as Mijumaru. But still, the little shit is finally getting some much-deserved focus after his string of bad luck recently.

Its great that Oshawott will get some development but I will SERIOUSLY cry if this is the end of Oshawott in the anime. I know we won't see him in Gen 6 but seriously I will be sad if he's leaving.

Meowth is just too Priceless Does Anyone Else Think So.
We are going to get some Oshawott development, but I have to agree that it will be a Bulba 2.0.
What's more important, though, is that this will be the FIRST episode of Decolora Adventures! Dont know why its posted as BW126, but I highly doubt it will be, considering Easter falls between, aka 2 week break.
I no longer care. I doubt this is the end of Osha anyway, but if it is, it makes little difference. Otherwise...so much Osha. It's happening... We're all doomed. Save yourselves before it's too late. :o<
Step into the Fairy circle
Even the more likely premise of Bulbasaur 2.0 makes me facepalm at this episode. I presume this is going to be the episode that kills any hope of Oshawott evolving (fighting a Dewott just makes it feel quite inevitable), which frankly, is stupid.
See, this "choosing not to evolve" thing worked for Bulbasaur because Bulbasaur was always a badass and proved it didn't need to evolve to be a badass.
Oshawott is a fucking joke.
No amount of pathos this episode might instill is going to convince me that Oshawott is better off not evolving, because this one episode won't cover the hundred-plus episodes of Oshawott being utterly pathetic during its run. The fact that there's an obvious duel between Oshawott and a Dewott in the episode just tells me this is going to be one of the many episodes that tries to be emotionally touching and appealing but falls flat on its ass due to the absence of common sense.
Mijumaru's little evolution speculation in the bud if he, most likely isn't, evolving at all ever. We know he's still a Mijumaru after this episode due to the movie posters so an evolution is a no-go probably.
Something to keep in mind about the otter's recent bad luck is that Mijumaru's losses, most of them, have been because of circumstance. I think we're right for some thinking time here on this, Mijumaru lost to Kotetsu's Sanzandora. What Pokemon wouldn't? It's a Dragon and likely Kotetsu's strongest physically in brute force and it was relatively fresh, in fact Bel herself even said "So....Mijumaru is the fodder Pokemon?" Then we have a few of his other losses against Bel's dad and Pod's Baoppu and those were done because the writers had to show off the strength of both character, the same could be said of Cheren's Haderia. When the plot isn't working against him he's shown to be a somewhat strong member of the team. Given that this episode is called, "Hotachi King! Mijumaru VS. Futachimaru" I'm actually sure he'll get some form of development toward his swordsmanship in some way. Yeah, like I said, it's better they go ahead and have Mijumaru not evolve if he isn't and have the episode confirm it than leaving it open-ended imo. Plus a main cause for concern for quite a few was that Lizardon's presence would overshadow the Isshu Pokemon and render them obsolete, it's good to know that's not the case. I detest the overall bad treatment Mijumaru's gotten lately, this episode actually could be entertaining if it's handled well.
A bit off-topic, has anyone noticed how much Miju-family we've gotten lately? We just saw Futachimaru in the Rescue Corps episode, seems weird to see another one. I'd actually like it if this was Cabernet's Futachimaru, she could pull a Jun/Fukamaru type case and defeat Mijumaru at first with her strongest, Futachimaru to establish herself as a threat as a trainer. Then Mijumaru would train and could back and win.
