Where to start, well I liked the party scene especially everyone's favorite scene Dawn/Zoey romance. It was very interesting to see the Grand Festival with three different stages. It felt like it was mimicing the beauty, smart and cute contests in the game. Then the judges are presented, Mr.Contesta, Mr. Suikzo, three Nurse Joys, and the lovely, dancing, french babe.... sorry got carried away, Fantina.
here come Ursula, her appeal was rather intersting one of the best appeals. Nando appeal was boring, no wonder he didn't show up much the writers might not have had intersting appeals to give him.
Zoey appeal was interesting as well with using aqua ring as hoops to go through.Plus her finale was great. Jessie, what is there to say here (there is so much) I loved Jessie development this time around during contest, her drive, her wacky out there ideas of appeal ( getting hit by yanmega to reveal her new dress) wonder why the judges don't say anything about her including herself in the appeal. then again Fantina was estatic about the appeal.
Kenny, kenny who? Ooo yeah the poor excuse of a rival. it shows how interested the writers were to include him in the festival, might as well not have him show up at all. Kenny should take this as a wake up call and change his profesion to gym battles. His pokemon's powers are to strong for contest. That or his mind was not think how to use those moves in a contest.
Dawn's appeal was the best of them all it is a shame that she was near the bottom of the scoreboard, she should have placed were Nando was. nice to see Buneary shine, to bad it might be her only performance. I have to say that I was almost worried that cyndaquil's flame wheel might have melt the ice and made buneary fall but luckly it didn't happen. Very interesting to see the smokescreen and ice beam combo to form an ice ball.
overall interesting ep, can't wait to see the other three eps.
On Nov 21, 2010, I'm going on vacation. I'm going to a country to visit two friends and a grumpy oldtimer who are awaiting my return.
