What a nice episode, I loved Pidove's role and evolution, she was so cute. And the first little Venipede that appeared is so cute too, more than Sewaddle
I started watching at the Battle Frontier. I learned about her pretty quickly I wouldnt be surprised with all the reruns in Japan for Pokemon if a lot knew her actually but what do I know I'd have to visit my Japanese friends tee-heeShhhhhhh! I doubt any kids watching BW even knows about that character.
But yeah, we haven't really had a bug take over before, not that I recall anyway.
CILAN FEEDING ASH WHAT IS THIS!? (*****)Poor Ash though, he got hurt twice here ouch, good thing he has Dento here to take care of him.
^I would like to bring this question up again, if it hasn't been answered. Please and thank you! (*******)What was said at the end when Shooty walked off and Ash made this face?
Was it something he said or Shooty said or did Pikachu do something to his back?
^LOL! This is exactly how I see him XDI kind of agree with everyone's assessment on Shooty...he's not a character you like, nor is he a character you like to hate, he's just a punk. And the whole camera gimmick is pretty lame as well, considering he really isn't a Pokemon Photographer like Todd...he's just a dude snapping pictures with his cell-hone basically.
Probably uploading it to his Facebook page later too, I bet, after spending a bit of time playing Farmville and taking the "Which Friends Character Are You" personality test.
Shooty's basically too cool for a Pokemon battle with Arti and he waits for no one.Very cute episode! So much, that I will post up a cute meter (out of 5 *'s) to measure each of the cute events that occurred.
~The Fushide. If only some of them weren't animated in 3-D...but otherwise, those poisonous little bastards are so huggable and squishy looking!(***--)
~Ash making friends with that Fushide was heartwarming! Every time he does something impulsive and
stupid"heroic" like that, I gain more respect for him...Poor kid. (****-)
CILAN FEEDING ASH WHAT IS THIS!? (*****)
~LAMPARA! (which sounds a bit like Camera...Shooti...Hahaha) Dammit, this kid is getting some of my faves. Also, Trip's face is far too pretty (***--)
~Burgh playing the role of pied piper...at this point, I started wondering if I was still watching pokemon. The whimsical melody that followed made me crack a smile and a quizzical look at the same time. (**---)
~Loved the Iris/Dento/Joy battles XD (***--)
~Oh, what's this? Trip actually somewhat caring for the welfare of his fellow trainer for his own selfish gains? Unheard of! :O Loved Ash's face when he thanked Shooti; it looked so naive and derp XP Also, I think that Ash's pidove/Tranquil might become one of my favorites at this point...No real logical explanation, she's just really adorable. Props to the evolving animation too, love the whirling green matter (*****)

Obligatory Shooti rant: (Spoiler'd for redundancy, Paul comparisons and general wankyness)
I really liked Shooti in this episode. I'll try my best not to ramble on with Paul comparisons, but I really think that he's differentiating himself from Paul quite well. He seems to lack any driving motivation or mystery about him that explains his attitude, which may seem bad for some, but I think it's an interesting take. It means that he can be humbled greatly in the future.
Also, I think that the relationship between Shooti and Ash is really one sided...Ash is trying to get Shooti's attention, while he doesn't really respond to it or seem to give a crap because of his superiority complex. While with Paul and Ash, it was a back and forth (with Paul willingly admitting that Ash got on his nerves), Ash seems really...expendable to Shooti. I miss the awkwardly long death stares that Paul gave to Ash whenever they met XD
Regardless, his interactions with Ash are entertaining, if only he gave a bit more...you know? Shooti doesn't seem like the cruel, anti-social type...I mean, his leadership skills are obviously better since he got those kids to form a flamethrower brigade...If he has any quirks, now would be an excellent time to play on them!
I mean, right now, the rivalry seems to be revolved around trying to make Shooti give a flying fuck XD There's really not much tension, in my opinion...not yet, anyways. Neither have greatly affected the other just yet.
Aw darn...I tl;dr'd all over the place
^LOL! This is exactly how I see him XD
Ash/Satoshi jumped in the damn way. He was trying to stop the Pokemon from terrorizing the city.
No, Trip was trying to attack a Venipede, but Ash didn't want the Venipede to be unnecessarily attacked/provoked, so he jumped in and blocked the attack.
No. Ash is being his retarded self and jumping in the way of attacks, instead of just ordering Pikachu to deflect it or something with Thunderbolt.
I agree no one ever tells him stop throwing yourself against dangerous obstacles, you idiot. He did it 4 times within the LAST 22 EPISODES!!! And every movie it happens at least 3 times and no one tells him, "hey stupid you're gonna kill yourself" so it continues for another 15 years. It gets on my nerves as well you aren't alone.No. Ash is being his retarded self and jumping in the way of attacks, instead of just ordering Pikachu to deflect it or something with Thunderbolt.
Shooti attacked Fushide and Ash jumps in the way to block the attack. Because he's impulsive like that. Seriously, someone needs to tell this kid to stop pulling stunts like this. After watching it for so many years, it starts to grate on ones nerves, but that's just me.
Glad to see I'm not alone with my thoughts. Which poses another question. Does anyone ever speak up on this? Like the adults or any of his friends? Have any of them ever berated him for doing these things, because honestly, I think Ash needs a good talking to. I understand him loving Pokemon and caring for them and all, but there are so many alternatives instead of just purposely hurting yourself, especially when said alternative is at your side 24-7 (I'm looking at you Pikachu >:|)I agree no one ever tells him stop throwing yourself against dangerous obstacles, you idiot.

That's a rather jerk-ish move. Even Paul had the patience to wait on Roark when he was digging for fossils.And for those asking what Trip said that made Ash make that face at the end, assuming the translation was accurate from Subonea Masukippa but apparently Trip said something like "I'm going to "Nimbassa City" for a gym because I'm not waiting until Arti/Burgh is ready to battle" or something to that effect.
LOL and... we all know he's such a Rachel... He even has a Jennifer Anniston haircut!Probably uploading it to his Facebook page later too, I bet, after spending a bit of time playing Farmville and taking the "Which Friends Character Are You" personality test.
Only 5 stars... really... I'm disappointed in you!CILAN FEEDING ASH WHAT IS THIS!? (*****)
I care.Who cares if his expression was similar to Gible's this episode
