Wow... The episode was really an amazing filler, maybe 'cuz I'm a huge Lysian/Chiriin stan! *0*
I loved Buneary got some fair screentime, she managed to pull an awesome fight with Gligar, which I might add keeps on delivering, the little guy is awesome, it has a Muk like personality, but a little more quirkier... Loved the X-Scissor/Steel Wing/Sand Attack combo, hopefully his last slot will be Poison Sting
And WOAH at Manene and Pinpuku BOTH battling, just awesome, and so funny.
LOVED the Lysians, they are SO adorable, I need my plushie NOW!
Ah, it sure is good to hear Battle Frontier again, being one of my favorite themes that was wh0red out for a whole mini-arc, then never heard from for over 70 episodes.
Otherwise, this was thoroughly formulaic for a filler episode. Sure, Happiny actually got to battle, and the callback to Chimecho was nice, but it reeked of the Chatot episode in parts (though didn't make me wince quite as much) and failed to set itself apart from any other episode in the series. Like the Electrike episode, the involvement of James was nice, but didn't really save the episode for me. Also, I hope those singling Chinglings get devoured by Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde.
Thank you for all the fantastic times, Serebii Forums!
Next to pokémon trainers, who can walk around and purchase things without a viable source of income, Pokémon Magicians seem to have the easiest job in the world. Make up some crap-tastic 'magic' routine that isn't at all amazing or original, and you've apparently got yourself a career. Oh, if only the real life could be as kind to the lazy individual.
But anyway, with entertainment like that in the pokémon world, I can see why people would want to spend most of their time forcing animals to hurt each other. But then again, the protagonists seem to be impressed with anything. Case in point; 'Wow, check out that ugly looking vest Hikari's mum designed for her bunny!! Gasp, it's incredible!!'
And speaking of bizarre clothing, who the hell would walk around in a magician's outfit in the middle of nowhere? Someone's a little too passionate about their 'job' it seems.
God, this episode was boring.
….who’s bright idea was it to give Chimecho a bigger, creepier pre-evolution again?
Anyone think that if 4Kids still had the series they'd edit the magician's clothing? Particularly her leg area.

I don't see what's wrong with her pantyhose... D:
So Gligar knows Steel Wing, Sand Attack, and X-Scissor. Nice. Does anybody remember if Gligar has shown any other moves besides those three?
Nope, unless you consider licking his face and crashing because it has problems gliding a move.
Did anyone else notice Manene's voice has changed? I *really* hope they're gonna come back with the original one...
About the episode itself, I can't believe some of you complained about it! I mean, if you can't stand good screentime for neglated pokémon, character development, three little demoniac, singing, yellow creatures and a great BMG, then you don't know what fashion means.

A little harsh for just finding something boring, I'd say. Especially for guys like myself who don't actually care one way or another about Buneary.
And what character development? Gligar battling?
Oh, that poor Magneton. Never gets any love.
Sorry to ramark to you that I was being sarcastic.
I edited my post so that everyone else wouldn't get me wrong... Since even y.o.u., Gravy, did.

Gligar used Steel Wing in this episode 0.o. Look on Dreamcoat's list.
