    It probably just got into some Miracle Grow. Or nuclear radiation. :/

    I was astonished at Team Rocket's behavior in this ep. Jessie entered the contest without any sort of trickery except a disguise, they didn't try to steal any Pokemon, and Jessie even went up to May after their battle and...I'm not sure what she said, but it was nice...I think she thanked her for the battle. And at the end of the ep Jessie and Manene were just sitting on the beach, staring out at the water, while Meowth and James spied on them. Not sure what to make of all this.

    Character development for Jessie? Wowsers.

    Let's just say that Drew gets lonely on the road.

    Oh god no, don't give in to it May! [Even though Drew is hot]

    This ep. was pretty good, some nice shots of Drew [no top! *faints*]
    May is blushing? Please not over Drew, that's just not cool. Wakana faints in the end? I didn't see that I'll check again.

    Yup this was amusing. Mega Kick was really cool looking! I love the Torchic line

    Uh, it's been stated several times already that the attack was Mega Kick.

    Anywhays, this episode actually looks amazing. As in, I think I may like it more than the recent Harley Contest...and I've only seen pictures *gaaaasp* =O
    I'll probably post a full review when I actually see the episode though...

    But for now I must say two things:

    - I said I was looking forward to the Combusken/Manene battle, and I wasn't disappointed. Can't wait to see it in action.

    - It's awesome that Combusken learned Mega Kick and all and I LOVE the blue glow on its foot, but I was WTFing the head feathers. Why the HELL would they need to glow? It's Mega KICK, no feathers required. Not to mention it looked SO stupid...I honestly don't get it.

    yeah, that's what I meant, what attack did Munchlax use for the first round? Was it a mega punch or a hyper beam, or something else?

    Bwhahahahaa, literally every single coordinator from the Harley contest was in this one!

    Either the animators did this for continuity, or they were just being lazy and pasted the same faces in the second contest instead of designing all new characters.

    Considering that the two contests were only 1 episode apart, I'll go by the latter.

    Yeah, I was thinking this too. But still, what are the chances that all but one Co-Ordinator [because Jessie participated in this one] from the Harley Contest also made it into the finals of this episode?
    I can understand 1 or 2 because these towns were 'so close together', but 5? No...

    First it used Solarbeam, followed by a Metronome which I'm pretty sure resulted in Rest [if so, there wasn't a green glow like there was for Harley's Octillery]. So to wake it up, May pulled out a PokeBlock, threw it in the air and Gonbe instantly woke up and jumped for it. On its way back to the ground it finished its appeal with a Focus Punch.
    This may not be completely correct, but I'm going on just episode pictures at the moment.

    Agreed. They could've also touched up more on a prelude to Wakashamo's learning Mega Kick. Maybe make note of how the strength of its legs have been increasing lately or something.

    Speaking of which, did Shuu comment that "the trainer and Pokemon's feelings are one" when Mega Kick was first used? That sounds like a rather cheap method to bring up a new technique (and unfortunately, I didn't catch any lines by Satoshi, Masato, or even Takeshi, surprisingly, which delved further into the subject).... the above paragraph's scenario would've been much preferred.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    Wow. This contest had most everything. May wins with Combusken, probably her best Pokemon (the way she hugged it after it won was pretty heartwarming). Wakana is a very interesting character (it was cute how she had all the pre-vos of Drew's Pokemon, and how she fainted at the end). And, my best note, Jessie actually gets character development! Definately one of her best contests to date.

    Wow, a lot of people are re-trying for the ribbon.

    Wakana must hate May... that little strumpet and her great boobs gettin' all close to Shuu-sama! You know, if this was going to be a bit more realistic she'd be gettin' Springer-style on that chick's behind! And her Chicken!

    My guess: Since Munchlax was at full health, there was no need to make the green glow representing recovery around it.

    My realization: They just forgot.

    My fear: Something in the future contradicts this.

    I say a Green Glow only appears when removing a Special Condition.

    That's what I thought too. Anyways, I liked this contest, I hope Wakana is a recurring character. Does anyone think she might catch a Roselia?

    Maybe.

    Wakana/Drew need one more Poke in common to catch up to Ash/May.

    She'll obviously catch the D/P baby version and shove it in everyone's faces, duh. It's called Buddse.

    That brings in the effect on Sunny Day, i like when they mix effects of things in the anime. Like when Ash made it 'rain' in his eighth gym battle which triggered Luvdisc's Swift Swim. May probably figured it wouldnt take long with the sun. It also shows off that Munchlax has different moves. Solarbeam is odd coming from a Munchlax. She should also get extra points for having a rare pokemon. Rare only since much isnt known about it, right? The judges should have been surprised to see a Manene too but they might not do that stuff in the anime, i dunno.

    Maybe the anime is just pretending that the pre-evolutions of Snorlax and Mr Mime have been known all along.

    Oh no don`t Wakana. Don`t catch Roselia! Those 2 pre-evolution of Shuu`s pokemon are enough.

    Yeah, I hope she`s a recurring character too I wanna see her again.

    Yeah, that's how new evos/prevos have always been treated. Think about it realistically...in the anime, you don't get 100+ new Pokemon "discovered" every few years, any new ones are assumed to have always existed, just in different regions. They kinda have to treat it that way because of how the games work.

    Thanks to Archaic for an explanation of a couple things, this is part of a convo between me and him on AIM:

    Shiny Geodude: first off, tell me if this is right... (gimme a sec to find and C&P the post)
    Shiny Geodude: Max (I think it was Max) was surprised that Munchlax was able to fire the Solarbeam so quickly. Brock looked up at the sky (the Contest House evidently had no roof, like a baseball stadium) and I think he said that Solarbeam doesn't need any charge-up time when the sun is bright like it is now.
    ArchaicEternal: Yes.
    ArchaicEternal: They were basically showing Sunny Day in show.
    Shiny Geodude: thought so
    Shiny Geodude: what about the whole thing with Jessie and her not doing anything wrong?
    ArchaicEternal: She seems to have gone all nostalgic over "young love".
    ArchaicEternal: Seemed to imply that Haruka and the new girl would be fighting for Shun's heart.
    Shiny Geodude: so she eavesdropped on their conversation and then added her two cents because she thought it was cute how they both liked Drew?
    ArchaicEternal: Pretty much.

    ...

    Shiny Geodude: so what's up with the scene with Jessie & Manene together looking out at the water at the end of the ep?
    ArchaicEternal: I'll translate it for you.
    Shiny Geodude: cool
    ArchaicEternal: Jessie: "First love is good, isn't it"
    Manene: "Ma ne" (That's a joke. "Ma ne" would mean "I guess so")
    Meowth: "Jessie isn't her usual self"
    James: "It'll snow tomorrow. It's absolutly going to snow tomorrow" (Think "It's snowing in hell right now", or "Pigs are flying")
    Wobbuffet: "Sounensu" (Another joke."Sou ne" would be an informal way to agree with something just said)

    Jessie is a Contestshipper! How cute! So... how many in-show shippers does that make, now? Harley, Caroline, Jessie... and May and Drew, of course.
