If Dunsparce had a Dragon-type evolution, then giving it to Iris would be excusable. But it wouldn't be good writing as Iris couldn't possibly know about the evolution now.
I personally think it could be done in either of two ways:If Dunsparce had a Dragon-type evolution, then giving it to Iris would be excusable. But it wouldn't be good writing as Iris couldn't possibly know about the evolution now.
- She gets it just because she wants to prove that she can get Kibago to be serious and not dick about.
- She again assumes a Pokémon is a Dragon type due to looks, aka Lizardon. She wanted to raise a Hitokage partly due to the prospect of becoming a Dragon-type so even if she is made aware of it being a Normal-type Pokémon, there's still no reason why she can't theorise. A lot of that will depend on if its scanned, however.
And honestly 'good writing'? When has that ever been an argument? I think we're both aware that our idea of good writing differs a lot from that of the writers at times.
Iris catch a Pokémon (for herself) that Ash was trying to get wouldn't make sense in the context of this episode. How would that help Ash and Iris make up?
Axew making Ash fail to capture it in the first place.

Nokocchi so we can throw the idea that he'd be pissed about Iris catching it out the window.
Sato attempts to make it up to her which doesn't seem to go to well. Iris reflects on it, sees that Sato did have a valid point and proves that she can get Kibago to be serious by being able to match Sato's attitude for captures.
Dunsparce if he saw it again.
Valid point about what? I see no evidence that Ash is upset about Iris' handling of Axew in general. He was annoyed by this particular instance where he lost an opportunity to catch Dunsparce.Sato attempts to make it up to her which doesn't seem to go to well.

Only if Iris gave the Dunsparce to Ash.Originally Posted by HumanDawn
Satoshi has every right to be angry, he's attempting to capture a Pokémon (a rare one at that) which is a pretty big deal for any trainer only for it to be ruined by Kibago. But it's not Kibago he should be getting angry at... it's Iris! After all the times it's wandered off and/or gotten in trouble you'd think she'd learned to keep a closer eye but not only does she not do that she lets it stumble into a capture attempt. If I was Satoshi, I'd march up to her and demand she either starts actually watching Kibago properly or stick him in a Poké Ball. Her lack of care for him is pretty ridiculous now.
I only have one thing to say:
"Satoshi and Iris's severed relationship!? One true road of parting!"
HAH! More like one true EPISODE of parting?
Writers, why u troll fandom?
No, seriously though. This episode screams "filler" to me.
Here's hoping TRio's nonsense doesn't take up a good portion of the episode.
FROM 0:59 ONWARDS.
So that's what the weird hearts actually were.
It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.
While I wish the writers would kill Iris off, they won't.
You just know that Ash and Iris are going to have a small fight, get over it, then have greater respect for each other.
That's how it always happens!
This just looks really good to me.
Anyhow, I loved the Smash preview. It does seem like Axew will become the hero of this episode as Pikachu and Scraggy were captured, I'm glad that they're finally bringing up his and Scraggy's friendship again.
Also, lol at the scene where Iris walks past Ash being so dramatic. I'm surprised to the fact that this doesn't seem to be comical episode like the previous episodes with Ash arguing with the female cast.
