Oooh. Giovanni's looking badass here.

Even Persian with his glowing eyes.

The actual episode was meh. Standard anime stuff.

Layla's tripping gag got old after the first time...

[12:23:42] Tsutarja (Ben): :D
[12:23:53] Human: The preview is left
[12:24:10] Joey: This episode was without a doubt the worst one yet in BW2
[12:24:43] Yusuf Kaya: GTFO Wishfulshippers. Reinax Cilan is the OP.
[12:24:59] Joey: No
[12:25:00] Yusuf Kaya: Okay joking aside, I like this episode.
[12:25:05] Human: the fuck
[12:25:09] Tsutarja (Ben): I fail to see how such a bore-fest is a match for Cilan. :I
[12:25:11] Yusuf Kaya: Reina was adorable.
[12:25:17] Human: ok she was
[12:25:20] Joey: She was not
[12:25:21] Joey: She was boring
[12:25:23] Yusuf Kaya: I liked some of the jokes.

Valchai sounded so much like Pochama to me...but the bird babies really looked cute in this...again, either of those would have been a much better flying type for Satoshi, who needs Kenhallow?

Did these guys not realise that Whimsicott is an evolved pokemon, or did they simply figure 'hey, it looks young enough'? And are they not aware of it's pokedex entry? They could probably get a fun episode out of that instead of making it a generic background pokemon all the time.

Vulchai was really freaking cute though. I can't believe so many people don't like it.

Oh god I really couldn't stand this episode.

Vullaby and Rufflent didn't want to shut up, the girl's running gag's weren't funny at all...really, they weren't. Cilan's tasting wasn't as good as usual huh?

The only things I liked was the ending with Team Rocket. They could've better filled the whole episode then some birds crying the whole episode.

This episode had the TV series' debut of Punishment. So...I guess that's neat?

Also, the principal of the nursery implied that Layla falls down a lot because she only just started working there. Newbies are klutzes!

Eh, I was surprised at how cute Washibon and Valchai were, but that was about it. The best part of this episode was the last three seconds.

I suppose that's Focus Blast mastered now then? Or is it going to be like Draco Meteor and randomly fail for a while still? And where did that massive tree come from and how does Pignite have enough strength to do that? Meloetta managed to not only do the calming Pokemon down thing, but also got to fill the role of the flying type search - highlighting the absence of Unfezant and Snivy.

There was nothing at all in this episode that was 'Season 2' - surely they could have chucked in some other region Pokemon into the Nursery? Otherwise, I think the episode is a good change of pace, just I don't see why it couldn't have happened earlier in BW, would have saved us from the Meloetta scenes.

Ugh, I did not enjoy this episode. Definitely the worst one yet in BW2, IMO.

It was boring, stale and just uneventful the whole time. It was even worse than the Audino episode, which I previously thought was Cilan's worst episode. I don't get why the writers insist on giving him these boring fillers. He is only worthy of the best they have.

The Pokémon were all boring, although Rufflet was adorable, and Vullaby was... meh. Nice to see Whimsicott appearing again though, although just like its debut episode its role was pretty much non-existent. Karrablast was the star with his Bug Buzz, Iris and Ash were looking hilarious, but other than that both Iris and Ash were very boring. Except for the fact that Ash actually trained with Scraggy's Focus Blast in the beginning of the episode, which was really nice to see! So, has it mastered it now, or what?

The plot was awfully boring, so I'm not even going to bring it up. The CoTD was meh, and her gag wasn't even funny the first time, but it was to see how close she got to Cilan. But if she got too close I'll murder her.... Cilan belongs to Iris and Iris alone...

The best part was without doubt Giovanni's appearance in the end, and the preview that aired.

Sakaki really should start paying his electricity bill. Sitting in the dark like that can't be good for his white, shining eyes.

Pfft, we all know that the reason why there isn't much light is because he's trying to make up for all of the expenses Jessie, James and Meowth caused with all of their failures xD.

You know... this was just awful except for those last few seconds. Apart from that, it felt like one of those boring Johto fillers but without that little bit of excitement that arouses when Team Rocket interferes, making the episode even more boring than a typical Johto filler.

This episode was ok with me. I really hated the running joke with the teacher tripping on those rocks. Why did they use that running gag too long :(. I do like the training part with Scaggy and fouce blast is not missing as much XD!Pignite really has to be strong enought to move that tree into place. I felt like that was pretty cool. This episode for me it was just chilling out and trying to be alittle mellow then other episode. I can said that this wasn't as boring as the Sawbuck's episode. With that episode they did nothing at all, this episode had some action to it, but the Sawbuck episode didn't. Really thing happen in this episode and that is a good thing, not doing anything is bad. I do like Ash and Iris covering their ears when Karrablast use Bug Buzz. I love Crustle just being there. Team Rocket are ready to shake thing up and I'm ready for it, The gliming eyes were just evil and Oh My God Giovinna is back ready for some payback.

I remember when Ash threw a log with his bare hands in the Kanto BF in a similar situation. Well, it's a cute episode, mostly because of the teacher (despite the running gag).
