    This episode was pretty good. IMO, Zoey’s kinda wrong. One can participate in both contests and gyms if they want. Ash shouldn’t have acted so surprised. It’s only common sense that when an opponent stands his/her ground, it usually means he/she is preparing to counteract against you and NOT laying back as Ash said. It was cool to see a Shadow Claw in the anime. Ash, Dawn, and Zoey were all pretty good.

    Nice episode, as was the last! I'm really enjoying the use of the Seal Balls in the anime. Makes me wanna use them more in the game, since i'm not.

    One of Sinnoh's attacks made a debut in this ep. Shadow Claw.

    I still have mixed feelings about the CGI animation in the show. Although I like the use of it, to me, it kinda down-grades the anticipation on seeing the upcoming movies that also have CGI animation.

    Was Dawn's mother rather *****y to Dawn in the original episode? Her attitude almost ruined this episode for me. My gosh, it was her first contest! I can understand if this were her 4th.

    The episode was pretty good aside from Dawn's mother. Glameow's tail got pretty creative when it battled Ash and Dawn. I thought for sure Jessie was having Carnivine use Power Whip during battle.

    I hope Ash does enter another battle with Aipom before it may evolve (does that need to be in spoilers since so far Aipom hasn't evolved yet?).

    This episode was cool. Glameow use of Shadow claw impressed me. Buneary jumping on Glameow's back like a trampoline got a laugh out of me.

    Okay now...

    -Not much do I ever hear that normal types aren't affected by ghost attacks, but good to keep that in mind. I just remember that there would be no mentioning in the 4Kids dub to my memory.
    -In one sense, I do agree with what Zoey said to Ash about contest and gym battles. But on the other hand, I started to think about Nando (from a couple of episodes back). Then again, I never liked the idea of Ash competing in contests and I never will.
    -Surprised by Jessie making it all the way to the final round without having to battle a "twerp". But her costume still makes me ill inside! Makes me miss her Jessebella costume from Battle Frontier.
    -Dawn's mother...Holy crap! Usually from the mother's of this show, they would be a little more supportive, but God damn! Okay, I understood because if you noticed at the beginning of Ash and May's journey, they barely called home. Just within the last two episodes, Dawn called her mother for every little thing. Well, I guess you have to cut the embilical cord somewhere in life (perhaps at age 10). But Johanna surprised the hell out of me!
    -*sighs* When I saw Zoey leaving and saying goodbye to Dawn, made me think of you know who and you know what! Drew & May! Genius!
    -And finally, Appealshipping! God bless it!

    Pretty good. I like Shadow Claw's effect. Personally, I expected it to be like all other physical attacks, only with a black glow instead of white.

    Teh Goodzors:
    -Zoey getting PO'd at Ash because he does Gyms but entered this one Contest. Wonder what she'd do if she met Nando?
    -Wow. Jesse made it all the way to the finals. Shweet.
    -Aipom FTW! Definately my second favorite Main-Character-Pokemon, ahead of Piplup in third and behind Croagunk in first!

    The Badzors:
    -As Medea said, Dawn's mom was just plain rude. I mean, you can't go relying on people, of course. But still, Dawn's only 10, she didn't need to be like that!
    -Ah...Lollipop-Hair didn't say her catchphrase. Instead a simple "There's that phrase again"
    -GAAAH! STOP WITH THE "REMARKABLE!"
    -I still hate Jesse's outfit. Does she change by the next Contest? Please say yes...

    I didn't like this episode, heck I don't even like PKMN contest episodes at all. I hope Ash learn his lessons, which don't enter any PMN contests at all & just leave for Dawn or any future female traveling buddy. Zoey looks & sounds like a lesbian.

    Not bad, good contest ep to come off the back of the last one.

    I'm not much of a Zoey fan to be honest, especially after her reaction to Ash thinking about doing both contests and gyms.

    I also hope Ash doesn't give Aipom to Dawn. Aipom's probably my fave Pokémon in the group at the moment, and I just don't think it'll get as much action as it does with Ash.

    Zoey is no lesbian. Not one time in both Jubilife contest episodes has she shown lesbian behavior. Please explain why you think she is lesbian.

    Back to the episode, Glameow was surprisingly powerful and creative with it's tail. It took a lot of punishment from Buneary's bouncing.

    Wait, so any girl that chooses to be a tomboy is immediantly a lesbian? Boy, that sure is generalising, isn't it? Does that make Misty a lesbian, too? She was a tomboy.

    Please explain with some good reasoning why she was 'oh so obviously' a lesbian.

    The episode was enjoyable, I liked the fights. I didn't like Zoey yelling at Ash about how he can't enter in both, he should be able to enter both for what he wants no matter what any one thinks. Zoey control every one with a whipe and make them do what they want to do. And no I don't want Aipom with Dawn, that was very rude of Zoey to suggest. I am really hoping she gets betean by some one who likes both than that would show her. Anyways other than that I really liked it. I'm really enjoying this season, my favorite thus far.

    Yeah, I noticed that too. In one scene the cat clearly said Nyaruma. I love Glameow's japanese.



    Buneary is so good in this episode. When he used Bounce in Glameow's back she was funny and powerful. I love her.

    I loved the creativity in the battles, especially how they used Glameow's tail.

    Aipom does need some new moves, Aipom's true ability was held back through the lack of moves. Zoey's Glameow just seemed better suited to contests than Aipom was at the time. Other than that it was an okay episode.

    Based on what I've seen Aipom is more of a gym battler
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    I hated how good of a battler Buneary was. It hasn't even been in a real battle yet and can stop an Iron tail with its ears. I think Dawn should have had more trouble battling too. I still like this episode, but I think that Ash should have done better then Dawn and battled Jessie first. I'm Kind of getting repetitive now so I'll shutup.

    this episode was pretty good, the Japanese version was at least. the dub only kept in 3 pieces of music during the entire episode, and this is an important episode! if i was in charge of PUSA i would be quoting Donal Trump right around now to whoever was the one who thought that 3 pieces of music in a contest battle is ok! PUSA is really pissing me off now.

    You really should lay off about the music. It's obvious you're pretty much the only one who's THAT annoyed over it, and now you're just annoying everyone else. Can't you make some positive contributions for once?

    I don't believe this. They lost and you're still complaining? How would you have reacted if they had won? -_-

    Why should Dawn have had trouble battling? It's already been very well established that for a rookie, she knows what she's doing. If she had more trouble than she did, it would go against her already established character.

    Well, Bounce was a surprising attack.

    I like the part when Dawn cried. I always combined that scene with a funny Sasuke picture on the internet, but my brother, King_Dialga, told me not to do it again and I refused.
