First thing's first...
Dento is faaaaaaaaaaabulous~~
Now onto my reactions/summary proper.
-Mijimaru deflects solarbeam with its shell. I recall that showing up in one of the BW previews way back when, so...yeah.
-Mijimaru lost its shell. Oh no!
-Imagine all my fangirling over Mijimaru's facial expressions/attitude/minor badassery, and assume it was all expressed in this line so I wouldn't keep going "HAHAHA MIJI'S FACE" over and over again.
-It's tasting time? Whatever could that mean?!
-WARNING. WARNING. CRITICAL AMOUNTS OF PINK SPARKLY BACKGROUND DETECTED. WARNING. RAISING FABULOUS LEVEL TO LAVENDER.
-Dento used Sparkle! It's super effective!
-Ash is entering thinking outside the box mode! I smell a victory in the next couple of minutes.
-I refuse to believe that Ash somehow calculated the correct path needed for water gun to knock the shell back to Miji. He's not that smart.
-Of course the samurai otter gets a "two opponents cross swords. One stays up. One doesn't." moment.
-Iris talking smack to Ash right after he wins? Oh no you didn't, girl!
-Oh man Mijimaru looks so cute resting on its she-wait, no, I swore I'd only use that ONE line to fangirl over it! NO MORE THAN THAT!
-Iris denies travling together with Ash...even though she's just so happened to be doing that for the past 5 episodes.
-TR's mecha this time is...a satellite dish/solar panel on wheels? Well okay then!
-I can't get over Meowth's disguise. He thinks he's people!
-Ash, I know the viewers have to get the "all the Joys look the same" spiel once in a while, but surely you've figured that out by now?
-Dento, why are you here? Not that I'm complaining, buuuuut...
-Then suddenly, MEGUROKO MOUTH!
-Dento's getting a bit too into this interview. Seriously man, control yourself! No need to lean over the entire table!
-A Tabunne! How expected!
-The orchestrated versions of game music continue to be awesome.
-Pink sparkly stuff all throughout the city? Dento's fabulosity must be contagious!
-Mushnara looks terrifying with its eyes open
-What do you think the chances are that the dub will flip all these scenes so that Jenny's driving on the "correct" side of the car?
-I'm starting to like the new, badass TR. Now if only they'd get more than one battling Pokemon...
-Motto with lots of black/white contrast thrown around hell yeah.
-Jenny recognizes TR as a gang that's supposed to be in Kanto. Good for her!
-Seriously, I love this piano track and I know the general sort of area it plays at in the games but I can't remember exactly where. This is bugging me to all hell. EDIT: It's apparently the Tower of Heaven music.
-Dento can't even stop being fabulous while describing the harmony between Makomo and Mushnara.
-Ash looks mildly baffled that Dento is coming with him. I...really can't blame him. Although it probably makes slightly more sense than Iris randomly not-following-but-totally-REALLY-following him. Either way, Ash is so used to random people traveling with him by now that he doesn't really resist.
-And now Dento gets to be the map-bearer. (and what a high-tech map it is!) Yay?
-I support and endorse Iris coming the fuck out of nowhere to scare Ash.
-Then Ash and Dento pressure Iris to
officiallytravel with Ash. I'm looking forward to this group, since everyone has an interesting personality this time around, and I'd hope all their quirks gives them a nice group chemistry.
