okay I was really annoyed at the Amour push in this episode but it looks like the issue won't take up too much of the episode. Hopefully. :P

I'm going to start annoying you now. For nobody's lulz but my own.

ZOMG, this is liek the totally shippiest episode EVAH! Serena X Ash forever!@!!!!!!!!!111111Kawaii!!!!111
Stand the f*** back, Clemont, because you have nothing on Serena. It doesn't matter how much of a boner Ash has for your inventions because in the end that's all he has...a boner for your inventions. Not you. You don't matter! Sorry, Clemont, maybe you and Cilan can get along. I'm sure he's a Connesu-whatever of inventions as well, seeing as how he seemed to be a connu-whatevs about EVERYTHING. Maybe your invention can explode...in his ASS. I just invented a new shipping...Clemont X Cilan. The fangirls will love it! They better, because it's my invention. Which has now exploded.




Okay, I'm done. Hope you enjoyed it.

Just like every other amour push they've shown, it's one-sided and barely relevant to the episode.

Hell, Froakie got more action than Ash.

Of course it would be one-sided.

This is Ash we're talking about.

So like ummm? What was the point of hyping all this "What ARE U GUNNADO SERENA?" in the episode summary when really, her total reaction time between the 2-3 scenes it showed it was like 10 seconds?

It was pretty much like "W-WHAT...Ash is gunna be with her? Eh-EH?!" to "Oh..okay it's not a date *phew*" shorty thereafter. I mean, uh like the above poster said it wasn't really relevant to the episode and was just another HEy kiDS SeRena wants da Ash! Lol.

Anyway, as for the episode itself...it was cute, I guess. Ash being cool and heroic is always fun to see and Froakie and Bonnie were cool/cute too.

Yeah Ash being cool and Froakie's battle with Sylveon were probably the highlights of this episode.

I'm not complaining or surprised about how one-sided this relationship is. It's a kid's show and the only kiss/affection/relationship he's shown to have was with Misty (I feel so sorry...) or a girl from one of the spin-off movies (Latias and that girl from Pokemon 2000).

I'm calling this now:
Froakie will evolve into Greninja before Ash leaves Kalos.
1. Only starter he will receive - (Remember Treeko?)
2. Pokemon has an attitude/distinct personality/backstory - (Charizard/Chimchar/Treeko)
3. It's a ninja.

Well, thinking about it logically...the only reason why they hyped up the Serena getting jealous/nervous/worried or w/e was just probably to make some cash. Not that younger viewers would care about shipping, but it was probably something done to bring in the older demographic since they are probably used to the old formula's by now...so they used a very transparent cheap hook to try and bring more viewers in. Because this whole "romance" sub-plot is something that hasn't been within the group dynamic for a while. Smh lol

Well I'm glad Serena's jealousy didn't distract the main plot of the episode, because that student teacher looks way too old for Ash. Froakie feeling sore about losing a battle against Sylveon isn't something that should bother him, because at least he's not part Dark.... yet. I feel sorry for Lundi being afraid of Pokémon, because that Hoppip was trying to save him from a Beedrill, which was about to strike him from behind.

Considering that Froakie must lose in XY 017 for the sake of his evolution , this is worst time for him to lose to a Mare Kindergarten Teacher and a Poacher as well !!!

He won't evolve. He will become new Pikachu while trying to be stronger by himself.

THAT WAS SURPRISINGLY GOOD
THE TRAILERS DID NOT DO IT JUSTICE

i mean okay yeah, it's the usual "small child is afraid of pokemon and ash helps him overcome that fear" but really. it was good. I liked Lundi much more than the other kids with that issue tbh. And I'm very glad the whole Serena-possessiveness wasn't a major thing. Wow the trailers made that out to be a big deal. And I liked Premier! She was pretty cool and strong and nice. And I like that Kero being freaked out by Attract was a thing. Like, has that ever happened before? A Pokémon just being mortified at the behaviour they displayed while influenced? That's interesting.

Kero's totally going to evolve tho. Kokocat has it spot-on.

My only worry is that whenever they seem to show the next evolution of Ash's pokemon by another trainer, Ash's version of that pokemon doesn't evolve. Pignite never evolves into Emboar, Snivy never evolves, Oshawott never evolves, Squirtle never evolves, Bulbasaur never evolves etc.

I worry for Froakie

Spoiler:
There's an episode coming up with details that Ash will battle a trainer with a Frogadier


I think D/Pt/P was the only season where Ash significantly broke the mold and had two of his starters fully evolve, hell A LOT of his pokemon were fully evolved when he fought Paul.

Gliscor, Torterra, Infernape, Staraptor... Only Buizel wasn't fully evolved.

They still showed Gliscor on the same episode Ash caught his Gligar, so there's nothing to worry about his Froakie not evolving, because Greninja is a very popular Pokemon, even in competitive teams.

Yeah I still have hope for Froakie evolving, the appearance of an evolved form of one of Ash's team in the anime won't always stop said Pokemon from evolving itself. It is his only starter this saga so I want to see it pull a Sceptile and eventually evolve to Greninja.

That was a pretty fun episode, I thought. I want that growlithe plush and Lundi's hat. :P And I loved that while all the other kindergarteners were playing with the pokémon, one girl was playing with Clemont's glasses. Hahaha!

I enjoyed seeing more characterization for Froakie. He's (I think it's a male) more of the aloof "cool-guy" types (I tend not to like those types that much, admittedly), but this episode took him out of his comfort zone a bit and brought out some more varied expressions. My favorite was the mutual surprise when Lundi bumped into him inside the dark truck. :P The fist bump was a good scene too.
