I DAMN AWESOME LOVE THIS EPISODE NOW! At least a main character (Goh) caught a Shiny that's BLUE (Voltorb) and the first capture of a shiny of such since Ash caught his Shiny Noctowl SO LONG AGO. I'm curious about Wobbuffet's backstory though, and it was hilarious ta see Pelipper bail on the TRIo already in the latest time of the episode similar to Wobbuffet's case. Too bad we'll never get to hear more of the Patient Pokemon's backstory prior to being with Jessie.
Actually, forget about the "backstory", pre-translations are but an irritation...

It seems that the subbers of the site where I watch anime also hated this one.

They posted a message saying that they weren't going to upload it.

It is the first time that this is happening.

Yeah, this was a pretty bad episode. It felt like a complete waste and the CoTD's were kinda annoying. Plus another wasted capture. Also, we're really gonna have an episode focused on blue Pokemon but not even show Lucario, Dracovish, or Inteleon? Just wow. This was bad.

I've noticed that they generally tend to avoid involving Riolu/Lucario and the Sobble line in silly fillers like this (The Marshstomp filler and the Practically Pikachu filler being the only outliners so far) so I'm not too surprised Lucario and Inteleon didn't show up here

Dracovish is actually considered Green in the Pokédex so there's an excuse for that one

Wanna be a food critic?

All the dishes in this episode looked uneatable.

Blue is not meant to be consumed, it is weird.

Yeah, I haven't seen such a creepy CotD since The Original Series. And the other guy wanted a Wobbuffet Body Pillow...

That scene was outright creepy for a kids show. He deserved a Self Destruct in the face

My apologize for the late review for my own opinion. As for this episode is just another alright episode for two CotD character arguing over who will get the best blue admiration and also help Ash's and his friends to beat Team Rocket to save their Pokemon and also scare away Pelipper in order to preven the prize master to drop down for engagement.

Overall rating: C+

Dang. The episode was that bad huh? I knew it was terrible and watching the episode again. I lowered my rating to a 2/10, but the subs, really?

I think it was a great episode with its irony in relation to fandoms which always have some maniacs within, who can be very different in their opinions.

Well good thing I (don't think) any shiny Gardevoirs showed up.

....I think. IDK, I think if there were people going ga ga over a Gardevoir I'd have heard it right now.

Unfortunately it was Koharu that was gardevoir'd this episode, which should tell you all you need to know about its quality

Really gave Beauty and the Beach a run for its money

I never understood why they spend so much budget on food, just give us some tan squares and be done with it. Or blue squares, in this episode, I guess. But it seems like almost every time a character eats the show is like "WOW! LOOK AT THIS INCREDIBLE DISH! IT LOOKS SO DELICIOUS!"
Like, it's a drawing, I don't care. You're not Studio Ghibli or Food Wars, and they put a massive amount of effort into the food. Going to their level is the only way to make people go "WOW" at literal drawings of food, and you clearly can't do that. It's either you go to their level, or put no effort. There's no middle point, if the amount of effort you put into it is in the middle, it'll have the same effect as no effort at all. Appeal in anime food is completely black and white, and you clearly don't care for going Studio Ghibli levels (not in a bad way, almost no one does), and this show isn't even about food, so why not put the budget somewhere else like in, oh, I dunno, the writing?

And by the way, I laughed out loud when they tried to pass off a slice of toast with some blue jelly as some sort of incredible gourmet dish.

In my case.

I often end up wanting to try the food depicted in most anime, be it me attempting to make it or searching for where to buy it.
Pokemon's Mori no Youkan/Old Gateau is the reason why I tried youkan and now is one of my favourite sweets.

But I found those blue foods repulsive.

If it was near that bad she'd have been in a blue swimsuit.

...It's more that Lillie mud scene than Beauty and the Beach

A lot of niche cult foods usually are. But there's still demand do it, so...

I feel like I’ve missed some context on this one. What happened to her?
