Synopsis


After a series of misunderstandings, Iris's Emolga flies off and encounters Team Rocket. After a concise battle, Emolga joins Team Rocket with a secret plot for gaining Iris's attention. The twerps later find Emolga with Team Rocket and Iris eventually learns that Emolga wasn't at fault for the events that took place earlier. Team Rocket discovers Emolga's secret plot and they try to counter it with a noisy weapon.


This episode was a really cute filler. I liked how the rising action of the plot started almost immediately, a minute or so after listening to Alexa's problems. It was funny that Emolga was getting blamed for everything, and I especially laughed when Pignite punched Oshawott in the face xD. Emolga's scribble thoughts were quite entertaining, it gives us a better view on its personality. I liked how Snivy and Iris both had the same stance on the situation, I was laughing at their synchronous gestures. She would probably train Snivy better than Ash :P. Team Rocket had a good idea with exploiting Exploud, but the twerps were able to outbattle TR once again. Speaking of Exploud, did it try to eat Axew? Like, what?

Haha! Every episode this arc is a filler with the exception of the last episode to come.

Emolga is such a clever Pokémon, I don't think I ever loved it as much as I did here. It's plan to infiltrate Team Rocket only to stab them in the back so Iris will be so proud of it was devious. Something else I really enjoyed was the return Snivy and Emolga's rivalry. I almost felt like the writers forgot about that for awhile.

They probably did.

I would have loved to hear what they two of them were arguing about during their battle. Meowth had some pretty priceless reactions.

Also, who else liked the X and Y plug in this episode?

I thought the same thing! This is further confirmation that Pokémon do eat Pokémon since the time Pidgeotto tried to eat Caterpie in the Original Series.

It was a cute episode, indeed! ( I can't wait for the XY episodes to begin tho!!! )

Haha, I watched that episode with my sister(she's older, not a fan of the anime) and she was like "did that Pokemon just eat a Pokemon?" haha I was shocked too

I'm also looking forward to XY but I dont want to see BW go :\
Slightly random but does anyone else think that Alexa should appear more often? Hasn't she been left out of like two or three episodes since she has been introduced?
