Swinub are always cute, but wasn't this too much like the Johto hot spring episode? :/
I loved that we finally met a friend of Dawn who ISN'T into Pokemon Contests (and another friend who calls her "Dee Dee"). I was beginning to think that Twinleaf Town raised everyone to be a Coordinator
Anyway, loved the battle at the end with Swinub and Piplup teaming up to take on Ash and Brock. 9/10
I hope we find out what "Dee Dee" refers to. I kinda forgot about Leona, but I hope we see her in the furture cheering Dawn on at the GF or atleast a minor appearance would be nice.
