Animation director - ???



Satoshi and his friends have arrived in Sazanami Town in East Isshu. On the way to Shirona's villa, the "Melody Pokemon" Meloetta appears out of nowhere! It seems like Meloetta has taken a liking to Satoshi. Meanwhile, Hikari and her "Penguin Pokemon" Potchama are waiting at the villa! Hikari wanted to brush up on her Pokemon Coordinating skills, so she came to East Isshu. Eventually, Satoshi and his friends arrive and the group begins staying together, all hoping to enter the Junior Cup. Dent tells Hikari that he wants to try "tasting" a Pokemon Coordinator's pokemon and challenges her to a battle! During all this, the Rocket-Dan is observing them...

So, why was this called Piplup VS Pansage? It was clearly not about those two at all, just a side thing.

So Dawn was at Nimbasa and watched Elesa in a Musical? I don't think she said anything so far about her going to Hoenn, anything about rivals or anything like that... (though keyhole is freezing and stuff so I could have missed something)

OMG they referenced "Counter Shield" from DP, Dawn used it with Pip

Dawn and Cilan didn't finish their battle, interrupted by Meloetta/Pip/Osha moment XD
She said something about wanting to battle Iris too and I hink Cilan said she still needs to finish the battle with him
Ash also wanted to battle her...
I wonder if maybe all 3 will face Dawn in the tournament and that some kind of set up to it

It was a solid episode, I expected a bit more but it's oK!
The bubble(bubble beam) defense move was a nice touch!

Pip and Miju made this hilarious! That will be a strong fight coming up!

Yes she was in Nimbasa! And the B didn't call Ash! Bad Dawney!

Did they mention the WTJC!?

Ya know ya boy Lil B had no idea about what was going on, but Keyhole worked fine just like every other week. Okay episode, Meloetta could go away though. That's definitely a shiny Onix in the preview for next weeks episode. Keep it based. - Lil B

Nice episode, although I expected Hikari to mention something about Hoenn. Poor Takeshi, he wasn't mentioned :( Or was he? I can't rely on KeyHole too much XD I'm happy they mentioned Counter Shield, I wasn't expecting them to actually show DP-type battling. See, Satoshi? Your crazy and awesome techniques can be used in Isshu too!

Also, is it just me, or did Hikari wink way too much during the episode?

Oh my gosh that episode was freaking hilarious. XD Just... everything. XD

And I guess the TRio got new music? Maybe we'll hear that on Sunday?

Wouldn't mind that submarine sinking with Seger in it...

Couldn't resist some new additions to your villa, eh, Cynthia?

Pansage uses Rock Tomb for the second time here. Discuss.
Dent: It's Tasting Time!
Dawn: ...WTF

Yeah, both Piplup and her had looks on their faces like they were saying 'he's not all there, is he?'

I still hope for some rivals or Hoenn Contests references eventually, maybe in the last Dawn ep before she leave she might show her ribbons and talk about her Hoenn Contests and rivals there? hopefully...
Anyway, this was an awesome ep and I can't wait for the next ones <3

Did they mention the WTJC!?
Yes, Dawn will participate, just like Ash, Iris and Cilan will, so they're all in it

Was so happy to see Ash pointing out all the different Pokemon and Iris seemingly having no idea - need more of that.

It's good to see that Dawn was interested in musicals, as it gives a bit more reason to her appearing. Perhaps if she stays around long enough there might be an opportunity for her to compete in one onscreen, another chance at doing the musicals justice in the anime. And yay for the Elesa scene.

All of the Pokemon interactions were great - Mamoswine sniffing around was funny, and the obvious stuff with everything Oshawott.

Because all of that stuff was good, I think it's okay to overlook the lack of focus the battle got, but I hope there's a full length battle in one of the coming episodes, before the Junior Cup so there's some actual training shown.

Why hasn't anyone looked Meloetta up on the Pokedex yet?

Hikari wanted him to after she did the same on hers. (Interesting she got an upgrade.)

Also, the Rockets new mission is called "Project Tempest" according to the Twitter.

Oh, I forgot to say, if that interest anyone, that Dawn actually already knew about Iris and Cilan, apparently she heard about them from Professor Oak?... or at least I think that's what she said

I really liked this episode, but I can't put my finger on it....

Oh, right. That was a pretty cool battle.

Loved seeing Counter Shield again. Almost as if this show had continuity or something.
