Joltik is so tiny! It's smaller than Oshawott. D:

Well, if anything is to be said, with recent scans of another Snivy vs. Emolga episode, Oshawott does not evolve in this episode. In a way, I feel kind of down about it, because I'm really hoping Oshawott is the one to be Ash's fully evolved starter. At the same time though, looking at the preview, Oshawott seems to be handling himself just fine.

This definitely does seem like an episode where Wotter masters Aqua Jet, and evolution is a later subject...But I don't think he'll evolve anyway. I think it'd be hard to fit his personality onto a Dewott, let alone Samurott (lol, Samurott loses his horn). It would probably play out with him either not evolving or becoming a Dewott, Smugleaf evolves once, and Tepig goes all the way up to Emboar, just to totally destroy Trip's Smuglord.

As I watch:
> Start off with some random dude… who has a Shimama what is cute. :D
> Oh Mijumaru, just stay in your PokeBall for once. :| Especially when you’re at a disadvantage.
> Why do you even try Aqua Jet, Ash? :|
> Mijumaru has fun faces.
> Omg what is that excellent background music?
> Shell Blade is noticeably less curved than it has been. Does that mean Mijumaru is getting better with that attack?
> Wait what was that attack Shimama used?
> And here the crisis begins. With an awesome “OHCRAPNOOOO! D:” face from Mijumaru, too.
> Dent I wish I knew what you were saying because it seems awesome. And those poses! Fabulous~
> It’s from James’s bottlecap collection!
> Bachuru is… reallly, really small. Holy crap.
> Wait I’m confused. Why is Iris just getting something that looks like a scalchop?
> Wow, Dent. You care so much about Mijumaru’s spirits that you would let him borrow your dinnerware? I’m touched. :’)
> Ash, that’s still a bad idea.
> OMG DENT YOU’RE TOO ADORABLE /laughing hysterically while feeling bad
> Heyy, pretty cool! …but rather big…
> Oh no Mijumaru’s getting sad. :(
> Dent is so excitable. How cute~
> At this point (13:08) I’m thinking it would be easier to go hotachi-hunting again.
> Bad daydream. Aww.
> We all knew Dent’s advice would come in handy.
> Desperate times call for desperate measures!
> So… it’s a race now?
> This guy gonna be a recurring character then?
> Kibago! I totally didn’t notice you were gone! Shows how important you are.
> I swear Mijumaru just got smaller.

It was a great episode, despite not much actually happening in terms of big-picture story. Mijumaru got stronger, sure, but I wonder if that’s going to help it significantly in future battles. I think he should have at least mastered Aqua Jet.
Dent had more screen time than he has been recently getting, which I appreciated. That man is adorable. Loved the scene where he was sad about his dish cover. :D

Pretty much what I got out of it was Speed increase, oh no my shells lost. Not much of an episode. At least Oshawott got some development. Although I still think he is lacking a lot, considering he didn't even master Aqua Jet.

Wow this could've been much more than a lost item and training episode. Oshawott could've either evolved or mastered aqua jet.

Haha, I'm not surprised. xD;
Mijumaru's dropping his shell all the time in the episodes. I'll be looking forward to this episode. I don't think Miju will be evolving either. It seems a bit too... soon? :V

Oshawott was so adorable in this episode but I'm so glad that Dento got more screen time; him crying over his cooking supply being burnt by Pikachu thunderbolt was so cute! I did wish that Oshawott mastered Aqua jet though but at least he had a good battle. I felt bad for the otter though whenever it started thinking about it's shell.

It was a hilarious episode, especially with Mijumaru trying all his substitute 'shells'. Mijumaru's expressions are adorable. xD And I never knew that Joltik was so tiny. o-o

Is it just me or does this guy remind you of Morrison (Late Advanced saga rival) ?
There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

This was an OK-ish episode. It wasn't entirely pointless, and I enjoyed it somewhat.

- Urgh, Miji is just as annoying as Piplup...Go back in your Pokeball
- This episode reminds me of that episode they lost the GS in, loosing something and basing a whole episode on it >___> Or how about an episode where the Clampearl lost its pearl
- Hmm, OK, so this is an episode about Miju not relying on his scallsword so much. Character development.
- ...Shockwave isn;t supposed to miss -_-
- How did Miju survive that -_-
- Aaand obviously it was found at the end of the episode
