Oshawott's so adorable, he looks like an aquatic teddy bear!!! I feel like cuddling it all day.
When I first saw this episode I thought, :does Axew pee in Iris's hair while he's in there?: But I guess some questions can never be answered.
My ideal battle ever!
A few months ago, I was thinking almost the same thing, but it was about something worse than peeing.
Let's see... Nice to see Ash is still a masochist when it comes to electric attacks. And he and Pikachu sure have bad luck when it comes to flocks of birds. It was cool to see him turn his hat before throwing the Poke Ball, just like in the days of old.
They're using the in-game music pretty effectively.
Overall, cute episode: glad to see Iris join the team!
Oh, and I could say something about what Iris said when she touched Pikachu's cheek: "You can't find anything this jiggly in the Unova region!" But I won't...

Hahaha, I love Iris's official introduction in this episode, when she gets mad at Ash for hitting her in the head with a pokeball. And it's interesting that Iris now holds the record for the quickest episode named after her, beating Ash himself (three episodes). Speaking of the old stuff, Jessie's capture of woobat was a lot like Brock's capture of zubat: a swarm of bats, an offscreen capture, new pokemon seen for the first time in battle.
And I LOVE the new motto.

A little scary to watch lol. She doesn't know 'fear', apperently...
I find that...Awesome <3 Haha..
It was a cute episode. Sure toke me by suprise how 'snarky' she get's after that one end's. XD;
You know at this point in DP Ash would have been the iris
what a kid
I also lold at his mom saying i wonder howe much he'll have grown the next time I see him, the answer is zero, or he's gonna regress.
Good episode, really. Interesting and I really laughed at Ash throwing the Pokeball at Iris' head. That was just classic.
Dub: 77/100 (Sarah, your Delia is absolutely horrific. I can't really say much else on that one, guys. No points for you. Iris' dub VA shows how annoying her voice can be, too. Oak's is laughably bad as always. I cannot take Cathcart seriously as James. His Meowth is getting too gutteral and deep. However, Michele's Jessie is the standout in this episode, getting a lot closer to Lillis here and Hayashibara; -23 for the cast overall and +5 for Knotz improving her Jessie.

This was just a boring introduction ep. Nothing special. The one after is better IMO because it introduces a character I prefer over Iris any day: Sandile.
A fair episode. That scene where Ash throws a Pokeball at Iris was humorous.
What a n00b

Her introduction may not have been the best, but I still liked it for the entertainment value it had.
So much credit to Sworn Metalhead for the banner!
Just my opinion, but I have a feeling I'm going to tire of hearing Iris's "you're such a kid!' line like I eventually tired of Dawn's 'no need to worry!' line after a while.
After thinking about it, that was a snap judgement to make, wasn't it?
It was only the second episode, so I should give this line a chance, shouldn't I?

My top six favorites
Claimed by me!
I don't like how Ash is being portrayed in Best Wishes. We already have Iris as a beginning trainer. If someone has to make rookie mistakes for whatever reason, she should be that person, not the one having to correct somebody who just made the Top 4 in the Sinnoh League. The Deerling scene was annoying.
Man, if Team Rocket didn't suddenly become interesting I don't know if I would have bothered watching these episodes. Best Wishes is off to a bad start.
I liked how Oshawott was the big hero in this episode; it showed potential.
I know the line is just teasing and not intended to be an actual insult, but man does it lose its charm after the 30th time.

I found Iris a bit annoying in this episode with doing that stuff with Ash. At least, I liked that Axew. I found it funny and stupid when Ash threw that Poke Ball at Iris.

I just re watched this episode after a few years. I like the animation and bgm used in this episode as well. Iris was pretty entertaining and I loved when she teased Ash by calling him a kid in this episode. Ash and Pikachu are still disappointing me in this episode with how their characters are being portrayed in BW so far, but at least it seems sort of funny. Team Rocket was good in this episode as well imo, though I really wish that they were replaced by Team Plasma instead. It was nice to see Ash catch a Pidove and I liked Oshawott's role in this episode.
I rate this 7.5/10
Wow Iris's debut was cool I especially liked how Ash mistook her hair for a pokemon lol. I liked that Jessie captured a Woobat and that Oshawott helped rescue Pikachu. Ash forgetting to weaken a wild pokemon was embarrassing tho. ^^;
