Brock and James' Bromance was great. I wish it had lasted.
A cute episode, although it was really like a Contest one because of the appeals. It's no doubt these fashion shows are equivalent to them. Dawn could become either one tbh. Cocoa is really pretty, love her.
I laughed when Ash was disappointed that the Hearthome Gym was still closed. Anyway, at first I disliked Hermione because she seemed like a strict fashion critic, but she ended up being decent. Dawn's outfit designs were really pretty by the way, and Ash and Pikachu's costumes left me speechless. Buneary and Lopunny teaming up against TR was fab.
Not that I mean this in an "oh god, this episode was horrible with a capital 'H'!', but the general theme of it didn't make it super interesting of an episode to me. There are better episodes.

The Mismagius lady would've made such a snarky Contest rival for Dawn. Alas this fashion show episode just didn't hit the mark for me. 5/10
