Ah, it's really hard to think of which episode has been my most favourite so far, I've got quite a few. "Facing Fear With Eyes Wide Open!" would probably be one of my favourites. Since quite a lot happened in the episode. Two captures in one episode, come on, that is pretty fantastic. I'd probably put Cilan catching Stunfisk in that Favorite Capture category, it probably is one of my favourite captures to date. As for a filler, that would definitely go to "Scare at the Litwick Mansion!" The episode was certainly really, funny, and reminded me quite a bit of that orange islands episode on the blimp. Cilan's scream, definitely a highlight of the series.

I absolutely adore Ash's Scaggy and Oshawott. Scaggy has such a wild, headstrong personality. And Oshawott is just hilarious. I do quite like the amount of rivals they produced in the series, and we got to see them all duke it out in the Don Battle tornament, I certainly would like to see characters like Burgundy and Luke again. I love Burgundy's personality, and the fact that she is in fact a rival for Cilan, even if in fact he is much more superior to her.

Meowth's time with the twerp's was definitely a highlight of the year. He brought a lot more dynamic into the trio, though it wasn't really needed because they worked well anyway, it was still fun, even if it certainly didn't last that long at all.

"Emolga and the New Volt Switch!" Although I'm not much of a fan of Emolga, I did love how it was much more centered around the Pokémon rather than the trainers, as we got to see more personalities come out of them. :3

- My favorite episode is "Dancing with the Ducklett Trio!". It has comedy with the mischievous Ducklett, it showed us a different side of Sandile when it didn't have it's glasses on, Pikachu learned Electro Ball, and we witnessed our first evolution with Sandile evolving into Krokorok.

- Favorite filler is either "Where Did You Go, Audio?" since we got to see detective Cilan or "Swift Hero Accelgor Vs. Cryogonal Man!". I thought the Super Sentai themed episode was quite funny and exciting.

- Most Exciting Episodes where "Crisis from the Underground Up!" and "Battle for the Underground!". It showed a variety of pokemon being utilized, and it was quite dramatic with the train chase, Team Rocket stealing pokemon(oh my never say that...), and Meowth betraying them.

- Favorite Human character is Alder, for me they seems to bring him to life and shed a different light on his character that we didn't see in the games. He short of reminds me of a blend between Jiraiya(from Naruto) and Miroku(from Inuyasha). He definitely doesn't remind me of previous champs shown.

- I'd say Oshwott since he seems to have the most character development, and quite the personality. He seems to have more episodes focusing on him then most of the pokes. That and Oshawott seems to work himself in like Psyduck. Hopefully we get to see him as a stronger battler in the future though, since he hasn't really be that great as of late.

- In an overall battle between Trainers I'd have to say Ash vs. Trip in their Third battle which ended in a tie. According to Trip he was experimenting but still it was a close battle regardless of what he said. As far as battling in general I thought the last episodes shown Tornadus VS Thundurus VS Landorus (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=266604) showcased the best battle between all three legends. It as showed the gang trying to get in there as well but to no avail.

- "A Connoisseur's Revenge!" seemed to be the most interesting idea with the introduction of two things. A introduction of Connoisseurs and also that of Burgundy Cilan rival.

- Meowth traveling with the Gang. It was quite interesting to see a different side of him. As well as the almost captured gag.

- Probably the back story of Iris in the Dragon Village, showing the bond between Excadrill and Iris would have to be my favorite plot

- I'm leaning more to Snivy since the whole episode was centric on the capture of her. Not to mention she avoided many attempts to be captured with her Attract move.

- When they forced Meowth to get hot peppers to wake up in "Beheeyem, Duosion, and the Dream Thief!" and of course constantly beating him up to wake him.

- Either Bianca Minccino or Iris Emolga as the cutest.

Ah, it's really hard to think of which episode has been my most favourite so far, I've got quite a few. "Facing Fear With Eyes Wide Open!" would probably be one of my favourites. Since quite a lot happened in the episode. Two captures in one episode, come on, that is pretty fantastic. I'd probably put Cilan catching Stunfisk in that Favorite Capture category, it probably is one of my favourite captures to date. As for a filler, that would definitely go to "Scare at the Litwick Mansion!" The episode was certainly really, funny, and reminded me quite a bit of that orange islands episode on the blimp. Cilan's scream, definitely a highlight of the series.
Yeah it was quite the episode, we got to see character development from Oshawott as well, opening his eyes so he could properly use Aqua Jet. And <3 Stunfisk, since I am currently using Stunfisk'd style xD.

"Emolga and the New Volt Switch!" Although I'm not much of a fan of Emolga, I did love how it was much more centered around the Pokémon rather than the trainers, as we got to see more personalities come out of them. :3
That was a great episode showing the interactions between pokemon like "The Bearartic Mountain Feud!". I love episodes like this going back all the way to "Island of the Giant Pokemon".

Interesting thread! This really gets my brain going since I'm an enormous fan of Best Wishes. I removed some of the categories because they seemed like duplicates of others in my eyes; hope you don't mind!

I normally use English names but going with the Japanese here because I do not watch English dubbed episodes.

Favorite Episode: So hard to choose... probably Zoroa the Movie. It was interesting to see everyone dress up!
Favorite Filler Episode: If I cannot choose Zoroa the Movie again, then probably Scary Stories in Hitomoshi Mansion or The Great Museum Adventure.
Most Exciting Episode: The Subway specials without a doubt. I was on the edge of my seat!
Favorite Human Character: Dent
Favorite Pokemon: Emonga
Favorite Battle: Pod and Baoppu vs. Satoshi and Mijumaru
Favorite Episode Idea: Pod being angry that he's always losing and trying to better himself. Was so glad to see his constant losses weren't tossed into episodes on a whim.
Favorite Capture: Satoshi and Dent catching Gamagaru and Muggyo simultaneously! The background music made it even better. :D
Moment that made you laugh the Most: Dent replying to Cabernet making stuff up about how he treated her when she challenged him at the gym with, "I did no such thing!"
Cutest Pokemon/or cutest moment: Emonga, especially when she was lecturing the Marakacchi in the Musical episode.

Favorite Episode: huh probably "Facing fear with eyes wide open"
Favorite Filler Episode: "Scare at the Litwick Mansion"
Most Exciting Episode: None of them were too exciting in my opinion, can't think of one at the moment (and have yet to see the subway ones, based on what everyone says it should hopefully change my opinion then)
Favorite Human: Cilan
Favorite Pokemon: Oshawatt and Ash's Snivy
Favorite Battle: Cilan vs Trip haha not too exciting but just liked seeing Trip finally get beat
Favorite Episode Idea: It never aired but I always thought it'd be a good idea - the Team Rocket vs Team Plasma episodes
Favorite Plot: The episode where Iris and Excadrill start working together again
Favorite Capture: Not really a capture but whenever people attempted catch Meowth, other than that, I'll say Emolga I guess
Moment that Made you laugh most: The part's where the Main Group were getting chased around in the Litwick Mansion

Cute thread. :3

Favorite Episode:
Irish and Excadrill Against the Dragon Buster, it's been my favorite episode since it aired, nothing has topped it yet IMO. I loved that they explored the relationship between Iris and Excadrill and the fact that Excadrill finally obeyed.

Favorite Filler Episode:
Scare at the Litwick Mansion, I loved how Litwick and Lampent were portrayed and I loved seeing Team Rocket (the only time this season I enjoyed them) I also loved the final battle at the end. And that TR had some comedy moments in this episode too.

Most Exciting Episode:
Battling for the love of Bug types, It wasn't a very good episode IMO. But I loved the final battle between Pikachu and Leavanny. Pretty exciting.

Favorite Human Character:
Bianca, I know we don't know as much about her as we would like to, but I love her personality; she never fails to make me laugh. If TR were still a comedy act I would have voted for Jessie. :<

Favorite Pokemon:
Swadloon, because reasons.

Favorite Battle:
Already stated, the Leavanny V Pikachu

Moment that made you laugh the Most:
TR's motto on the Litwick mansion.

Cutest Pokemon/or cutest moment:
Tepig tyvm.
