Looks like we're back in Lumiose already and getting an introduction to the... exciting? world of Furfrou grooming. Could be interesting, right? Especially with the Rockets playing fabulous artists again~

Ash's battle with Team Rocket was the most interesting part of the episode, it was well thought out for once and the reaction times with TR was impressive. He actually showed his experience and it was commented on by the other characters. Here's to hoping this is a trend that continues!

I haven't seen the episode. Currently waiting for the sub to come out which probably got pushed back a day or so because of Thanksgiving in America. But yeah, it seems like they will be returning to Lumiose a lot. They should be leaving there soon though.

I liked how the Team Rocket got a long good battle on this episode, really I think they got good throughout the Pokèmon episodes. Ash, hmm well yeah he was able to pull a good combat with Pickachu even though he was blinded by inkay's ink. Overall 8/10. Still wondering though, why Ash and his friends didn't think it's Team Rocket at the first place?

I got too impatient to wait for the subs, so I decided to watch in raw instead. From I can understand, the trainer's Furfuro refuses to be trimmed due to the trainer's underestimation on their bonding. I was expecting her Furfuro to be a care-free one with her accepting its decision to not be trimmed, but I was wrong. Team Rocket's disguise scheme surprisingly worked really well despite the "it's obviously them" look on their faces for the group. Gotta love that Pikachu and Inkay battle. And Wobbufett, oh boy Wobbufett, those outfits are definitely tumblr material.

Eureka is positively adorable here, I just hope they don't overuse her staple gag of trying to marry off Citron.

Team Rocket being featured the whole episode was a change of pace... but I still prefer the CotD episodes and actual character development over the Team Rocket dominated ones.

Also, Satoshi might just have a brain on his head based on that battle.

And the next episode looks to be a doozy.

Another great episode/. But as much as they keep bringing up Ash's bond with Pikachu, it really makes me think that Pikachu is going to get special treatment again and get a Mega Evo one way or another.


Anyways, the English Sub usually comes out the day of the episode on the site I use. I don't know if I can post a link or not. The only problem with the site is, it loads the video very very slowly.

The battle with "blind pikachu" and Team Rocket was really pretty good! Enjoyed the episode as a whole, loving that they're sort of pushing ash as more mature in this series.
