    "Keromatsu VS Yayakoma! Aerial Battle Maneuvers!!"
    Airdate: 24 October 2013 [Japan]

    So it's looking like Ash is catching Fletchling in this one but wait- is that Bonnie trying to entice a Dedenne? I don't think it's hers or Clemont's- will Clemont catch it for her? Will she catch it herself? Am I just wildly overanalysing and it's one of theirs already or???

      In the Trailers and Intro you see a Dedenne running around with them. Personally, I think it's gonna be Bonnie who convinces Clemont to let her catch it or something. She'll need SOME kind of development right?

        Well I mean we know she'll be having a Dedenne in some way- I think the thing was she "keeps" it for Clemont? But I don't know if he really catches it for her or for himself. It'd be super cute if he caught it for her. (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・

        If Bonnie gets a Dedenne, that'd be pretty cool! Though of course, I doooon't think she has that much battle experience yet, ahaha, so, maybe she'll keep it as a "buddy", or let Clemont train and battle with it. :o

        It's stated in the first episode that she isn't old enough to have her own Pokemon yet. So I'm guessing Clemont catches it for her or she just... gets it for herself anyways aha. But that Dedenne is definitely going to be part of the group one way or another.

          I'm just looking forward to see Serena's mom teasing Serena about liking Ash in this episode .
          After all , Its normal for a mother who seeing her daughter going on a Pokemon journey right after seeing her childhood friend .

          Not gonna happen
          I believe Serena is the only one who knows about encounter with Satoshi... I mean that flashback was in some forest... I think Satoshi saved her or something =)

            Froakie slowly climbing out of Ash's arms might be the most adorable thing ever, in some strange way. Froakie sure is a bit too righteous and courageous, haha, dat personality. Can't wait for him to become at least a Frogadier.

            Clemont is a bit like Cilan and his "tasting time" when he pulls up his inventions :x Hahaha his glowing glasses, and the machine not working. Maybe Clemont will be a nice character to have after all.

            HAHA AFRO ASH he should always have that hair. Okay actually I need only to squint a little to get Diode vibes. Clemont is Ash's fangirl ._.

            James and Inkay! That's so great! Inkay is adorable and James fits with adorable pokémon, haha. Love this. James isn't a bad pokémon trainer really, is he? He has always seemed to love his pokémon ^^ Except maybe Victreebel at times. And Wobbuffet, I guess. ?

            The battles are really well done here. They are on par with the movie animations. Great work, pokémon anime creators. Ooh, Froakie knows Water Pulse. Powerful. And pfft, the reason the ball didn't work the first time is because he didn't turn his cap backwards, simple as that :D

            I'm sure Dedenne will be caught by Eureka somehow, eventually :3 And yeah, the opening already reveals that Fennekin will be Serena's. But then there is a possibility that Ash will capture Chespin?

            I got a big kick out of when Serena asks her mom which hat looks better and she chooses the exact opposite of what her mom picked.

            how is anyone in this series allowed. like seriously everything is so adorable i kept giggling and such this past episode. bonnie is adorable. clemont is adorable. ash is adorable. dedenne is adorable. froakie is adorable. i can go on and on about how adorable everything is i can't.

            also fletchling has a personality. ash's bird pokemon has a personality. if it keeps that personality that'll just be another reason as to why XY is amazing.

              The beginning of this episode: TF2 in a nutshell. Also, it appears to be the first time Ash has struggled on catching his bird Pokémon (he even failed to catch it on the first try compared to his previous birds). That Beedrill scene was perhaps the funniest moment in this episode, which may foreshadow Clemont's other inventions that could backfire throughout their journey.

                  Ash being total derp is what killed BW Series !
                  Only a complete idiot will repeat the same mistake twice just because some oversmart idiot think other character should get more spotlight then Ash.
                  Ash is a CORE of the whole Anime .
                  It doesn't matter if other character get any focus or not But Ash must be on the spotlight .
                  Because if the ''Core'' is fine then everything fine but if the ''Core'' is Damage then everything is damage And if the ''Core'' is unfix-able then everything is Unfix-able
                  Its an Universal truth .
                  Atleast , Ash didn't throw a Pokeball on a Pokemon without weakling it.
                  And I wonder if the Dummy Froakie as a Bait was Ash's idea or Froakic's Idea.
                  But he act ''Too Hyped'' about everything which kind of annoying .
                  And as My father said , ''Too Much'' of Anything is never good !!!

                    @Adventure AND ASH IS HIS AS WELL lmfao. How long till he gets wary of the inventions though?

                    @CacharOdin that was absolutely perfect lmao

                    @Tara ooooh yess I really really hope Fletchling keeps the mischievousness <3

                    @Newt yeah he does! I love it when he's competent :D

                    @Famon, for the thousandth time, knock it off. This discussion is about XY003. As Ash493 said, Pokémon are certainly the core of the anime, and Satoshi is the protagonist. Bringing other characters into the limelight and balancing a decent-numbered cast is called good writing, and is something you should be hoping the anime can do.

                    Be interesting to see how Luminose gym pans out with Clemont being Ash's partner. (unless I've missed something obvious)

                    Clemont is keeping the fact that he's the gym leader of Lumoise City from Ash but he's still the Gym Leader. Which is how he was able to get them into the secret side entrance and so forth. So I'm guessing if Ash doesn't find out before the fifth gym he'll find out then haha.

                    Clemont is going to have other challengers, though. Ash can't be the only one?

                    The Beedrill swamp, the cap turning, the fact that Serena knew Ash before he began his journey...

                    It's kinda funny how the directors are seriously trying to win over the older fans by using all these throwbacks ahaha. I'm not complaining though, the series so far is the best I've seen as far as I can remember.

                    Froakie, Froakie, Froakie! The little ninja, throwing frothy shuriken and tricking foes with his improvised substitute, and he's so cute and adorable, blushing when Bonnie hugs him ♥

                    And James got Inkay! I love Inkay, and James too, looking forward to see more of them.

                    And Serena's hats, can I have her hats? Also, Grace, I don't think your daughter's coming back for those Rhyhorn racing lessons any time soon

                    Also Froakie, did I mention Froakie?

                    [EDIT] Dedenne seems to be following them now. I'm thinking that even if they fail to catch the little guy again, he'll still be following, so I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of him.

                    Dedenne is so cute! The moment I saw it running across the tree I wanted to squee. Not really used to seeing Wigglytuffs in place of Chanseys as Pokemon nursing assistants but.. I'll get used to it. :o

                    && Inkay yaaaay! So many of my favorites are being captured so I can rest assured I'll be seeing them often.

                    The real gem of this episode is the Froakie vs Fletchling fight, though.. love the lack of stock animations and backgrounds. Ash's stragey was pretty great and Froakie itself is so lovable! Great episode; all of the characters are really wonderful so far. Onto the next!
