"Leave it to Serena!? The Exciting Sihorn Race!"
Airdate: 21 November 2013 [Japan]

Actual Rhyhorn racing, guys! Maybe this is where we'll find out if Serena's really going to take that direction in her life?

Maybe she'll pull a Y and start with Rhyhorn Racing then switch to the call of Sky Battles~

Another brilliant episode. I love how they are actually having a female close to Ash. Even closer than Misty was. I have a feeling there will be a good amount of episodes between the relationship of Ash and Serena.

Again I am surprised Serena did not say what she wanted to be. There is no much in Kalos competition wise, but she thought there was still something out there. She is starting to like racing, but she still does not like it much. I liked all the flash backs though and how they made Serena sound like her Mom.

Again, this episode further made me think Serena isn't as cool as I originally thought :p But regardless, she and Satoshi are really interesting and cute together! They're so hinting at this ship yes, hahaha.

Citron didn't have any cool malfunctioning machine for Satoshi to fanboy over this episode! Too bad because that's why I've grown to like Citron ^^ Also Dedenne keeps being downright adorable. AND RHYHORN I never cared much for this pokémon but they make it seem pretty decent in this episode. Kudos!

So, filler filler but actually really nice filter? Showing this lil group starting to become a family. Lots of great character moments. Aside from the shipping press ugh I just really don't like that it's being forced upon us like this. Clemont's rescue was my favourite. And that he's kind of the first to bring things up of make a valuable comment in a conversation idk like Serena and Bonnie kind of agree/go along with things but it seems like Clemont takes more action than they do in a situation or conversation?

edit: oh and lets talk about bonnie's tyrantrum pyjamas

Oh wow lol. I didn't even notice Bonnie in the Tyrantrum Pj's. Haha that is awesome.

And yeah, I laughed when Ash didn't share his food and then Serena kinda had that 'are you serious' look.

They're really pushing the ship right now huh? I really hope it dies down because if they push it anymore of it so soon after the show has begun I'm just going to line face even more than I already have been.

Overall though I liked the episode! Cute little moments and they made me giggle. I'm too lazy and it's too late to really say my thoughts about it but yeah.

Yeah, just like everyone is saying they really are hammering this shipping home like nuts. It feels kinda strange seeing this much hint of romance with Ash ever since Misty, though I haven't really followed the anime much so I can't think of other instances. Still, really surprised the anime have made me this interested in it so far and hopefully it keeps up the standard throughout the rest of the series.

Also nice to see Team Rocket again after a few episodes, though one particular scene Jessie and James' faces looked really scary... kind of too scary lol.

Hahaha, I know exactly which scene you mean xD

I feel like I want to watch the pokémon anime fully from the start of Hoenn again. Never did that. But I doubt I have the time/energy :p I'll just follow X/Y and pretend it's the only season that matters now!

I didn't that was Bonnie's PJs. XD


Anyway, it looks like Ash finally remembered Serena after she showed him his handkerchief, but it's too little too late for Ash's memory. Watching this episode makes me want to use a Rhyhorn on my team, because he's always been an old favorite of mine.

It's not as scary as the Coachman's nightmare face from Pinnochio (or Medusa from Soul Eater), that's for sure.

I honestly don't mind the shipping, but they could make it a few episodes and not every episode, but it wouldn't matter to me. I am sure now that Ash remembers Serena, it may calm down a bit now.

I don't think it will affect the anime much if they keep shipping. Naruto had shipping in almost every episode and everyone loves it and even take sides a lot more than most animes I have seen.

Turns out that Serena lives up to her mother's blood as Rhyhorn racer after all, seeing that when she trains Ash, she used the same words as her mother did when she was training in episodes earlier. I like the fact that at least she starts to reconsider her opinions on Rhyhorn racing after training Ash after all.

Basically, I like this episode, lots of Serena focus, and finally we find out how Serena meet Ash on the first time, and I'm glad that Ash finally remembers that moment. I also lol'ed at how Serena seems very confident when demonstrating how to ride Rhyhorn.

Whoa, they are pushing Satoshi/Serena...although, obviously only on Serena's side. I thought it was funny when they were all saying how cute they looked in onesies :S I can't tell from this episode if Serena may want to do more racing. At first she said she wanted to go her own way, but I don't know if Satoshi sort of encouraged her to change her mind. Hmm, I don't think so.

Also, Laverre Town's music is beautiful in the anime.

And I did not catch Eureka's pyjamas, haha!

I hope Serena becomes less like her mother and more the the girl who baked cookies for Ash. That girl was nice, and has a chance of being with match for AbilityShipping.

And lets hope Bonnie stays sweet/cute and doesn't become the next jungle girl Dragon trainer snarker.

Realize how Serena said she placed 6th on a race she had?
Now let's remember,on the firsts episodes,her mother made her train,and she failed.So how can she place 6 then?Pretty easy....When Ash had his race...there are only 6 racers ._.
Did she wanted to impress Ash or something?

We-ell, the thing is... I don't know which subs you're watching. I know some unreliable subbers translated it how you said, but the reliable ones say that Serena said something like "six Rhyhorn race at a time".So even if she placed sixth at one point that's still last haha.
