Ok sorry just thought it said that possibly and I am not sure but we will see in a few weeks and it will get in the way of a capture.
Man... I'm sad because the episode is likely going to just have that Dunsparce be a one-scene wonder where Ash tries to capture it, doesn't, and then it's just gone. However, actually being able to see a Dunsparce, even fleeting, would be amazing.
I hope it gets caught, but I'm not holding my breath.
To me, this episode sounds like NegaiShipping fuel. It just sounds like that to me. :/
Really though, why this late in the series, is Ash attempting to catch a Dunsparce? That would make more sense in Johto. Really, it would. But if this is a recycled plotline, yay. Makes me even less excited.
There is no picture here, there will never be pictures here.
Also, my favorite game on the PC is Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword!
Axew getting into trouble at the league should have made Ash more upset rather than catching some pokemon he's seen before. But I'm glad someone finally is getting tired of Axew's antics. No one likes Oshawott's crap and bashes him all the time, so Axew can take some heat too since it doesn't do much of anything instead of using the bathroom in Iris's hair.
Axew is her pride and joy, of course she'd be pissed any normal human being would. No, it's not because of Iris's kodomo ne comments or past comments, the summary says it's solely because of Ash blaming Axew for causing a Dunsparce to get away. Go ahead and try to make it out to be something personal I suppose.
Aipom in her fourth appearance (in his second attempt).
Emolga, Excadrill) or her friend's Pokemon(Tepig, Oshawott, Snivy.) Ash is the one inciting the whole situation, so yeah he is starting it. That's as clear as day.
Axew is hardly a problem at all. He's no more a problem than Pikachu, Piplup, or Oshawott. He was kidnapped the first two times, how many times have Ash and gang been forced to stop their travels because Pikachu got stolen or something or Piplup got upset over something and got caught by Team Rocket or Oshawott's behavior getting the better of him? No one considers Axew to be a problem in-universe just because some fans have problem with it.
Then again, Ash isn't starting it; Axew is. It's not his fault if the Pokémon can't stay still.
Scolipede; into Durant's anthill; got lost during the League and in Castelia City; fell to the "oh-something-interesting-let's-see-what-it-leads-to" during the Cheren episode, the TRio trap back in the N's first appearence and gods know how many more times the same things above repeated; hardly a problem.
I'm not going to watch this episode, but I do hope Iris calls him out on his general character (as in, writing) flaws (for example, his creepy battling obsession).
Palpitoad to escape.
Ash is inciting it. Axew gets in the way. There's nothing. Ash decides to spark a flame of war when he gets nasty about it. He could easily be nice and say about how Axew got in the way, but if he's actually straight-up blaming Axew he's in the wrong and it's his fault. Just like how it was his fault in Hoenn when May got angry at him, he was in his "GYM QUICK QUICK!" mode and May wanted to make sure she looked nice before leaving. He had to fly off into a rage over something so petty. I know Ash is the main character of this friggin' show but that automatically doesn't justify any sour actions of his being right on the spot.Then again, Ash isn't starting it; Axew is. It's not his fault if the Pokémon can't stay still.
Scolipede - Did he get stuck there himself? He was trying to get an apple to cheer up Iris and fell into the Scolipede's horns, Iris even apologized at the end.Yes, he was trapped by a Scolipede; into Durant's anthill; got lost during the League and in Castelia City; fell to the "oh-something-interesting-let's-see-what-it-leads-to" during the Cheren episode, the TRio trap back in the N's first appearence and gods know how many more times the same things above repeated; hardly a problem.
Durant - Kidnapped in his sleep, if any other Pokemon had gotten dressed in that leaf attire they would have been stolen. The writers just used Axew because he works as nice plot device because he has toddler personality(And will always have that personality because that's just that, same thing with Scraggy's hard headed nature and Oshawott's clowny behavior.)
League - I will give you that, that's mostly to do with his personality.
Castelia City - When did he get lost in Castelia....?
Cheren - Again, his personality was a catalyst for the conflict of the episode. Plot device 101 just like Scraggy going and challenging the Galvantula at night time or Oshawott downing Garbordor's apples without asking.
TR - Oh come on, it was friggin' five second trap and just a trail of berries that he followed. Why in the world would he know that to be a trap? It's a trail of food, Oshawott would have done the same thing. Or Piplup, Emolga, Pignite, anyone.
Axew getting kidnapped and falling into "traps" is hardly his fault and, in-universe, no one acknowledges or treats Axew's behavior as being problematic at all. Trying to make it out to be something canon just because you don't like it is getting old. The severity of his actions are subjective. Favorites are subjective. But canon is objective, and you can't argue against the concrete. We just synthesize it differently...
...and yeah, I actually do hope Axew stops being used as a plot device for most situations or episode. The thing's battle record has more to be desired. ^^;;
I'm really excited for this episode. Even though I wish Dento also had a significant role in the episode too, Iris and Ash will do great. After all, while we've seen them argue quite a lot, it's always been limited to a level of the typical ''close-friend-arguments''. Seeing them go all out on each other for real is something I've been longing to see.
I've never really understood the mystery as to why some people aren't able to sense a real relationship between them, from my point of view it's crystal clear. Out of all his traveling companions, Iris is the one who feels like an actual sister to him, which is probably because she is the one who has the most in common with him personality-wise. I'm so, so looking forward to see them fight for real, I just don't hope that it'll be resolved in a cliche tag battle, like what happened with both May and Dawn (even though it would be nice to finally see Iris participate in a tag battle).
Also, it's really cool that Ash tried to capture a Dunsparce, I hope that it's something that'll be picked up again later in the episode or in a later episode. I certainly wouldn't mind more members in his team.
