      What I don't get from this episode is Why writer are so hesitant to let Ash beat anyone ???
      Its like Ash isn't allowed to beat one unless its life & Death matter .
      Even if its some Poacher .
      Its like their rule is Ash<Poacher !
      In Pokespe , X beat the **** out of 2 Team Plasma grant -
      Spoiler:


      While Ash need to be ''Saved'' by the Spewpa to in order to beat a mare Pocher !
      same thing happen when Ash battle another Poacher with Glalie and Hunter X in DP series .
      Same thing happen when Ash battle Team Plasma grant ! Iris defected her opponent by herself while Ash need assist from wild Bravary to beat his opponent .
      Its like the world need any more proof that Ash is inferior to Pokespe Protagonist .
      Not to mention Froakie !
      He need to lose a upcoming battle against Frogadier Or else we can goodbye to Greninja on Ash's team .
      and with that and the defect in XY013 , Todays episdoe is worst time for him to lose .

        I'm surprised they didn't do a butterfree throwback since this scene mimics that one pretty damn well.

        I thought this as well; I was actually relieved that Vivillon didn't join Ash, I would've hated to see it return the wild like Butterfree did back then. It's most certainly a coincidence, but Butterfree's dex number is 12, hehe.

        I think the animators put their all in the final scene with all the differently patterned Vivillon flying off, maybe it's just me, but overall the animation was a bit flat in this episode except for that scene and during the battle. There wasn't TR's fabulous intro either.

        Speaking of fabulous, Ash definitely rocked that Spewpa look

        And while nothing major happened, this episode shall remain in history as the only episode where we can see Pikachu evolve into Raichu.

          i liked how it was the first time ever in the X and Y series for a pokemon to evolve. it seemed a little bit too fast to me. like way to fast. but i also liked how all of the spewpa at once evolved. i actually liked the episode and the anime faces they make. i hope they dont cut it out because in the black and white era they had like no anime faces. like bonnies face at the table looked like a booty to me XD

              There wasn't much interest in this episode for me, for I was still busy being hyped by the previews of upcoming episodes from the holiday special. On the other hand, it is nice that we've got an episode advertising the many patterns of Vivillon's wings. It feels off that the lack of scenes regarding Jenny's mistakes was a missed opportunity for her character as an officer.

              Not that interesting of an episode. :( The animation was subpar but I was glad to see a fair bit of action from Vivillon, though it would've been nice if Ash had actually caught it. I was so sure he would at one point but then the little guy flew off and that was that. Maybe I'd just wanted more butterfly-like Pokemon.. loved Butterfree and Beautifly.

              Antagonist for the episode was also kind of cliche and boring so I never expected much from him. Overall I'd give it a 5/10 if I had to tack a rating on this, hah.

                Yeah, I agree with the sentiment that this was probably the least interesting episode so far. But I actually still enjoyed it! ^-^ Memorable points for me:
                • Daz looks kinda Wario-like. I laughed when I saw him. :P
                • Ash explaining evolution to Bonnie and Pikachu's expression.
                • Ash's spewpa ghost costume. And incognito chespin, yay! ^-^

                To be honest - for me, it was the worst episodes so far in XY - focusing on Pokemon I'm not interested in, it's one of those episodes I probably won't watch again, unless I'm watching all the episodes in order.

                Don't want to sound too rude, but Diggersby just looked horrible (by design), never liked bug Pokemon - not even the cute Fennekin showed up in the episode to bring me smile. The only thing I did like was Daz's Wario-like appearance.

                Is it just me, or is this episode a little reference of sorts to the mass trading of Vivillons? Even said he was selling them over the internet, haha. Weird that he got angry about losing the Elegant Vivillon, he should know they're as common as dirt :P He'd have to pay someone to take it from him, haha.

                  It was such a reference to that haha. I wonder if they created the concept before or after that behaviour started taking place? Because it seems like Vivillon were created specifically to be mass traded and collected. So I wonder if they based it off that premise and it just coincides with the intended behaviour of players?

                    I actually like this episode. I also noticed that the radio wave tracker Clemont made looked a lot like the Dragon Ball Radar in DB, DBZ, and DBZGT.


                    Guys you got to remember that this is a bug pokemon and most bug pokemon evolve really quick.


                    Also, do not forget that the manga is far darker than the anime. He was battling a fully evolved pokemon who knew a level 60 attack with Froakie who hasn't even evolved yet. There has to be set backs, you can't have someone blow through everyone without a challenge. That makes the story boring even more so than pokemon has been in the past. Pikachu would not be able to beat it because it is part ground and not to mention it was in a cramped net. Also, he used safeguard to protect his 'party' Not to mention pokemon has sometimes broken the levels.
