Very cool review,Sakuraa!This episode turned out to be a good one, starring one of my favorite Pokemon, Breloom!
First of all, I like how Noibat was flying around with Talonflame in the beginning of the episode. I'm glad they're still portrayed as "flying buddies. And OMG that has to be the cutest Breloom ever! Bonnie playing with Squishy was cute too, but only because of Bonnie. Squishy still kind of creeps me out. Especially that pupil-less eye. And OMG, Breloom was so much cuter when he was angry. I love this Breloom so much.
I loved seeing Hawlucha take off upon hearing Noibat's scream. Can't say I felt too bad for Noibat getting poisoned and attacked like that. I mean, he did destroy Breloom's gift for his one true love. He could have been pummeled even worse. I thought it was weird that Clemont only considered Breloom as a possibility for Noibat being poisoned rather than the POISION-type Beedrill. That would have been my first thought. Nice of Floette to heal Noibat since of course Clemont (Nor the rest of them) unfortunately didn't have Pecha berries or Antidotes:/ I also really liked the small detail of having Hawlucha watch Noibat fly with Floette.
I don't know why I'm only just now bringing this up, but I found it cool that Breloom had his own little Beedrill gang. And OMG Breloom was so cute acting shy around Floette. Man I almost wish he was one of Ash's/his friend's Pokemon. Funny how Bonnie was the first one to realize Breloom's crush on Floette. Pretty rude of Floette to just ignore cute Breloom like that. If she didn't like him, she could have said something instead of just turning away from him to go back to Noibat. Wow, lol, Breloom's using physical force now. Nice how Hawlucha and Noibat immediately yelled at Breloom when he tried to Pokenap Floette.
Ok, so Breloom just sets Floette on a tree branch...and she just sits there and doesn't even try to leave? That's just weird. Unless she just stuck around for Noibat, there was no reason for her to stay there since it's not like she wanted Breloom anyway. Regardless, I loved seeing Breloom thrash Noibat. Also, nice that we got to see him make use of his super stretchy arms. Aw, Pikachu wanted to go save Noibat, but Hawlucha says no. Lol.
Wow, a Probopass invention. Well, I guess it would make sense to sniff out a mushroom and a flower. But of course it explodes. Good thing Noibat can find pokemon on his own. Also good that TR decided to just sit around and get drunk as opposed to actually doing something with the Pokemon they captured, even after Meowth warned the other two that it would happen:/ Idk why, but I was really shocked that Clemont let Bonnie go off with Noibat to try to rescue Breloom. I thought he'd at least tell her to be careful or something with how protective he is. Oh well.
Really glad to see X-Scissor being used again from Hawlucha. I almost forgot that he knew that. Is it just me or has Clemont only commanded Luxray to use Swift recently? What the hell happened to his electric-type moves? I've literally been seeing nothing but stars lately. And, to end off this paragraph talking about moves, I'm glad Noibat learned Acrobat. That's certainly not a move I would have predicted for him to learn, which is great. Better than something overused like Gust or Aerial Ace. Breloom looks really weird with his arms crossed.
I hated the way Floette left. Once again she ignored Breloom for Noibat giving no reason. Then she literally got blown away by the wind and happened to join that giant traveling group of Floette. It wasn't even that she knew they were coming and planned on going with them. Aside from the very brief mention of it at the beginning of the episode, it was such a random, spontaneous thing and I hated that. I just feel there could have been a much better way to send her off after everything that happened. And poor cute Breloom. I really felt bad for him. At least Hawlucha was there to comfort him.
Overall a nice, enjoyable episode, mainly due to cute-loom. Oh and Noibat 8/10.
The swift thing is becoming an epidemic! Clemont is totally wasting all of Luxray's potential! It has totally been driving me crazy lately, when I was watching this episode the second he sent out Luxray I just said "use swift" to myself.Is it just me or has Clemont only commanded Luxray to use Swift recently? What the hell happened to his electric-type moves? I've literally been seeing nothing but stars lately. And, to end off this paragraph talking about moves, I'm glad Noibat learned Acrobat. That's certainly not a move I would have predicted for him to learn, which is great. Better than something overused like Gust or Aerial Ace.
