    Wrong, it was used in the Secret Base episode, but the dub mistranslated it as Hidden Power.
    Now that I think about it, Nincada did attack with it, didn't it? Brain fart, I knew about that dub error.X(

    Interesting episode.
    I never figured Dawn's sadness would linger this long. I wonder if this will be resolved soon, or will it wait until her next contest.

    And yes, as mentioned above, this episode was great, seeing as it had comedy, sadness, and romance.

    My favorite part was Dawn. That simple part stole the episode for me. It was cute.

    Also I have to say that I love Happiny. She was absolutely awesome.

    Way to go, Pokémon creative team. This was a cool episode to begin the year with.

    We got character's development here and there (Dawn, Turtwig; even - and finally - Happiny!), some enjoyable doses of fun (talk about lazy Miltank-hyper filler girl interaction and Team Rocket's scenes), great animation (recycled three-time-poison-jabbed Brock and Team Rocket's motto apart), cute romantic parts and, still, some other remarkable moments, such as minor (but welcome) cameos.

    I'm really glad about Pochama's relationship with Dawn but, honestly, they should showcase Mimiroru, Pachirisu and Etebosu a little bit more in a way that they emotionally interact with her. I just don't wanna see Ash + Pikachu love story all over again with the other pokémon casted aside. For realz.

    I must say this proves Ash and Buizel without a doubt belong to eachother. I wonder why they are dressed up like cheerers?
    KMLOL. I seriously hope this was meant to sound sarcastic... Seriously.

    Oh my, why did Brock never think about this with Dawn around?
    ... Maybe because he's not a pedophiliac jerk who fantasies about a 10-year old girl with a tiny-shorty-pinky skirt? -_-

    Really nice episode. I loved seeing Turtwig bite Ash's head again, it was like the writers forgot about that little gimmick and IMO it was nice to see it, as well as Turtwig training.

    Happiny learning Secret Power and having a lot of character development was also a nice surprise and certainly long overdue. As well as the Dawn side story.

    Despite being a filler they managed to incorporate quite a lot into it which really makes a fresh change, Sinnoh is full of surprises.

    This episode was pretty good.

    • I can't believe how natural Ash looks in that maid outfit! xD;
    • Looking at Dawn's depressed face makes me sad. I didn't know what Zoey said, but it sure made her pretty upset. And also the fact that she lost another contest. In the appeal rounds too. But I think this is all character development. Hopefully, she'll improve and win her next contests.
    • I love Happiny in this episode, even though I haven't seen it in previous episodes (we're just up to the part where Brock gets the Happiny Egg). I can't believe how strong that pink cute little Pokemon is!
    • Turtwig was awesome in this episode too. I'm glad to see that biting gag back. Unfortunately, its Energy Ball isn't up to snuff yet...
    • The new ending was great. Not too many Dawns, but she was given new outfits. Not that I mind. She looks great on them! I wonder if she'll be using them in her upcoming contests...?

    When Sawn was depressed after watching Ash train Turtwig, Was she holding Aipoms Evos pokeball?
    Do you think she may be regreting the trade, or feels she cannot train her batter than Ash did?

    Gd to see Brock finally get a girl (kinda), shame no Staravia in a maid outfit however

    Wow. Dawn's depressed 'bout her loss. Well, no wonder! Well, I'm sure she'll win the next contest, unless the writers really hate her, they'll let her win the next one she's in. Good to see Ash cross-dressing again! LOL!!
    It's also good to see Happiny's personality is blossoming more aswell. Finally, Turtwig in the process of learning Energy Ball probably means he's gonna be used in the next Gym Battle (just as soon as it comes along).
    Loved the Miltank!!

    "I can't believe how natural Ash looks in that maid outfit! xD;"

    I swear it's like they DESIGNED it for Ash to wear, hahaha XD

    I really liked this ep, lots of humor and fun things happening, and even a little sad part with Dawn ): I can imagine not feeling to happy about those contests as well. Does anyone know what she was remembering Nozomi was saying? Maybe that she needed improvement..? I heard her mention ambipom to so....oh well.

    The one thing that bugged me is what exactly did Zoey say to Dawn?

    Ash is so stupid...-_-

    But I love how the scene seemed to be really emotional and all of the sudden it turned out to be rather comical.

    Didn't she also appear on a screen advertising something? Other than on the poster I mean. I remember there being actual footage of her or something along those lines.

    *can't remember*

    Methinks they're building up to something.

    Very good ep with both serious stuff (Dawn crying) and comicla things (Brock and the Miltank thing as well as TR). Ash as a maid was hilarious but I think his previous cross-dressing scened (in early Kanto and mid- AG) were funnier.

    I love Kunihiko Natsume.

    The best part of this episode was simply the wacky facial expressions.

    Took me a while to actually consider bother watching it. I had it downloaded, just really didn't think much of it till today, when I had nothing else better to do.

    Well, all I gotta say is this: pure lol fest! I cannot believe how funny this episode turned out to be. I mean, as if the part of Ash dressing up as a maid wasn't funny enough, the fact that Brock actually got them there in the first place simply because of who was there probably made it that much funnier.

    Since it's been a while since I've watched any pure Japanese episodes, my interpretation's are a little rusty, but from what I've gotten from this episode completely wrecks any previous template. Let's just say, this is a very original and highly entertaining episode that I was not completely expecting. Ash in a maid outfit was funny, Ash being "calm and collective" even funnier, Ash scaring the guests with his actions = funniest.

    I have no idea why Team Rocket created their cafe for in the first place, and I still don't know what that powdery stuff is. Unless it's stuff to turn water into milk, then that's possible. But, I sort of don't get their motivation.

    Next, I have to say, that girl continually getting frustrated with Miltank was entertaining to say the least, and the bridge scene went from drama, to upmost comedic event. I swear, I'd hate to see what happens when Happiny evolves. Brock would essentially have the powerhouse right there.

    To put things into perspective, I haven't watched any Jap episodes since... well the cycling road ep where Brock gets Happiny. God, I have A LOT to catch up on (well, I guess not, since most of them have been translated).

    I could not stop laughing at this ep. Every scene there was something to laugh about. Heck, when Team Rocket's balloon floats by just kinda there, I figured that for no apparent reason, Ash and Dawn would just happen to see it. Well, I'm sure the answer is pretty obvious.

    I found that girl's admiration towards Brock interesting, reminds me of a character from Johto... in fact, I'm beginning to suspect that a lot of the upcoming episodes are taking some major Johto references. I'm probably just looking too deep, but heh, just checking. Anyways, back to the idea, I found Brock's complete ignorance towards her and constant interest towards her sister's particularly amusing (if I lost you anywhere, I apologize).

    Anyhow, I might consider acquiring the next ep if I feel like it. I only bothered with this episode to see how Ash winds up in this "unique" situation. However, since that was so short lived, it was particularly pointless. Glad to see it still had enough comedic worth to validate my continual viewing.

    Well, that's about all. My comprehension of Japanese is so limited it amazes me that I'm still able to watch this show without getting lost.

    P.S.: I noticed that they copied something from roughly 6 seasons back (maybe further, I'm not sure) with Misty discovering Togepi could learn Metronome. At first, that's what I thought Happiny did, till I noticed that there wasn't any "random" effect given to it later. My second guess would have been Refresh, or something that causes the sleep condition. I never would have guessed it being Secret Power. But what kind of punch was it using during the battle I wonder?

    It's really not hard to understand if you actually pay attention to it...-_-

    Basically one of the Miltanks is a disobedient one and Brock wants to help Ake so it will obey her. And then along the way, Ake happens to have a crush on him but Brock does not notice so...yeah, crazy stuff happens. And then you have Ash and Dawn and those funny and sad moments.

    Since when do you need to understand Japanese to understand the basic plot of an episode? The answers to your questions are obvious if you think about them. You said you've watched it so you already know the answers.

    It was weird seeing Ash in a maid dress.

    I never really noticed! But then again, I've only seen the episode pictures.
