    I think it's ability was shown, I think it was Shell Armor, or maybe Sturdy...maybe even Broken Armor, I think Broken Armor makes more sense because of the way it was shown. I actually thought it was Swarm but it doesn't know that apparently.

    Great episode.
    Shell Breaker, it's an a move that increases the user's attack, special attack and speed.

    I have to say, overall, a nicely done episode. I actually like the idea of a conflict that doesn't necessarily involve Team Rocket, but random CotD or PotD. It offers a bit more variety.

    Also, Team Rocket is getting more and more amazing. I mean, sure it's been... 5 episodes since they last interacted with Ash, but the fact that they're actually doing something important really leads me to believe that once they do make a confrontation, it's gonna be something else.

    Dento is still quite the accomplished chef, and Iris seems to know a bit about healing and whatnot.

    Also, I know it's a great theme and all, but could the sound department for maybe... I dunno, 2 episodes not use the "Tower of Heaven" theme? Don't get me wrong, it's a great theme, but it seems like they try and use it at every instance that it will fit. I'm only saying this because once they do actually get there, we will have already heard every possible variation of the theme and therefore it won't be as "awe-inspiring" as it would be.

    All that aside, they did a good job. Was very surprised that Ash had a minor role for once. I mean, it's happened before, but he didn't really do much of anything. On the upside, it does mean that Iris and Dento get to show more of themselves for development. And that's always welcome.

    Now I wait for subs to find out what the hell was going on with the Team Rocket escapade. That's literally all I want to know.

    You have to wonder if Ash is suspicious of the lack of Team Rocket in Isshu lol

    I must admit, Ishizumai was a lot more awesome than I expected. Glad that Dento caught it.

    Overall an okay episode, nothing spectacular.

    I'm a bit surprised that Dento caught Ishizumai, but not displeased, I guess. He needed another Pokemon. I wonder if he'll be allowed to have a full team or if he'll only have three like Brock.

    I like that Team Rocket has been shown as more competent but I'd like to see them have a few more captures of their own as well. If nothing else James needs a Pokemon. Maybe he'll get the trash bag pokemon next episode, it doesn't seem likely but it also seems like it's his only chance to catch something in the upcoming revealed episodes.

    Overall, the content of the episode wasn't all that interesting but the writers handled it adeptly making it seem better because of it, at least from what I could tell.

    Great episode.

    It had to have been Shell Break the attack. Breakable Armor raises speed upon a physical hit, not attack. You'll notice after it used Shell Break, its next X-Scissor was super powerful.

    Ishizumai is super adorable! I am now glad it joined the main cast!!!

    This episode wound up being surprisingly entertaining as I wasn't expecting much from it. Ishizumai was very cute and I'm glad Dento wound up catching it, giving him his second Pokemon. Now hopefully it will get used. The little fights with the other three Ishizumai were fun to watch and I really like X-Scissor's new animation.
    The Team Rocket subplot seemed cool, but I don't really know what they were after other than getting data.

    Mostly an episode that ended up being better than originally expected; lets hope Best Wishes keeps this up.

    Hum I said it, Playerking said and a heck lot of people said it or atleast believe that Dent could get it because of the interaction, I believe he was catchable by the preview and when seeing the actual episode and all the interaction I really though it would be a crime not to give it to Dent.

    On the Team Rocket subject yeah guys, Im loving and like someone said above when they actually get in a confrontation with Satoshi and have a battle it will probably be an actual battle not a "oh we were blasted off" battle, to keep their "we are actual villans now" theme.

    Ishizumai was the last pokemon I expected to be part of a main team. I didn't pay attention to the pokemon when I first saw it, but this Ishizumai was adorable, fun and perfect for Dent. Quite the perfect catch.

    Yeah you know what, i bet Ash is thinking finally no more people taking my Pikachu. I'm glad they can relax for now, anyway, i knew Dento would catch it, just like i knew Meguroko would come back, and i doubt james will be getting a yabakuron like in the next episode. Anyway i love X-scissor's new animation, way better than the old one.

    Simple, TR meet Flint. Flint tells them they have to break into a lab he shows them in a hologram and steal important data about the meteorite. They break in, avoiding lots of laser sensors. James sets of a tiny robot from the vents in the lab, and begins to hack the computer system and steal the data. They return to meet Flint in the abandoned tunnel he congratulates them and says they've done a good job, but they say they don't need compliments and they leave. The End.

    Was that move the leader Ishizumai that used it against Dento's Ishizumai, was that Bug Opposition, by any chance?

    Because it's something we've never seen before (the animation), and Ishizumai hardly learns any special type moves, and that had to be a special move.

    If I'm not mistaken, Dento says something right after it hits "Dento's Ishizumai" I'm assuming he identified the move.

    Oh, so nothing too important. It was basically something comparable to "mission: impossible", only with bad guys. Okay, thanks, I thought they were going to talk more about what it's being used for, you know, stuff like that.

    For some odd reason, I like how TR actually breaks up the very "lite" aspect that the Ash and co. parts seem to have, with their, "mission: impossible" style exploits. Really makes you want to know more about what's going to happen with them, yet there's still the "main" part that we're watching this for.

    And for that, I'm liking Best Wishes.

    I noticed a comment over on Youtube mentioned something regarding "mud bomb". Gimme a moment...

    *checks Ishizumai's attack listing*

    Nope, it's not that. I'm going to vouch that it could very well be Bug Opposition. Also, an amusing note; Shell Break, X-Scissor and Slash are learned consecutively.

    I *think* it's うちおとす or Knock Down, which Ishizumai do learn by level up. However, it's a physical move, but that's what I keep hearing from Dent.

    Well, if it is Knock Down, that is an unusual animation for said move, especially since the description "mentions" rock or bullets to knock the opponent down. But a yellow looking swirly orb thing?

    Though some physical moves have been shown to be ranged, or special looking. Like Rock Blast, or Stone Edge, so it's possible that's what happened.

    But even so a yellow looking swirly orb thing, is kind of thinking outside of the box in terms of animation for a physical move.

    -You know, I just realized this episode that the TRio's music is supposed to sound kinda like Mission Impossible. They actually did the Batman appear/disappear thing, my god.

    -The way Dento makes potato salad makes it sound like it's better than sex.

    -Okay so this is about that Ishizumai. Surprisingly, even for a small not-filler episode, we saw a lot of stuff from the cast...well, not Satoshi too much. We had Pikachu trying to stop Kibago from checking something out again, (no doubt some Pendraa trauma there) we had Iris having healing prowess and we had oh so fabulous and awesome Dento having his own episode. Nice strategy using the Pokemon food to lure all the bad Ishizumai away. And he caught it! Good job Dento. Screw you fan dumb thinking this would be filler!

    -Though, I gotta say, I got pretty annoyed at Ishizumai when it hit Yanappu with a rock. It was like "Dude, what the hell?"

    -"Ishizumai getto de...GOOD TASTE!" Only Mamoru Miyano's voice acting could make that work. (Now that he has a real stock footage catchphrase, I'm almost certain he'll catch another Poke at some point)

    Good episode today. Very adorable.

    After having found out who that guy's voiced in the past, I can't help but think that it just fits Dento to a T. And it makes those funny catchphrases even more amusing.

    -The episode begins with another installment of Dento's Food Porn Time. One of the writers must have suddenly gotten really, really into cooking.
    -Aw, look at Dento try to hide his annoyance that Iris does not care about the intracies of his food beyond "is it tasty (yes/no)".
    -Yes, yes, everyone fucking loves Dento's cooking. Can we move on no-
    -Oh look, Kibago seems to be sensing something!
    -It's an Ishizumai, of course. Busy...tapping a shell-shaped rock. Well okay then!
    -Blah blah wonders of nature blah
    -And so, the industrious Ishizumai has crafted a new home for itself. Next time, on the discovery channel: Sharpedo Week!
    -But first, a bunch of aggressive Ishizumai out of nowhere!
    -Aw shit! The good Ishizumai's home just got jacked!
    -Yanappu chases after Ishizumai after it used dig to escape, and brings it back, but...Ishizumi flees from Dento using the good old fashioned "running" technique anyway.
    -Iris uses her heroic jumping skills to corner the rock bug. You go girl!
    -Ishizumai is apparently shocked that throwing rocks has the potential to hurt things.
    -And now for your daily dose of TR plot. There's some babbling about the meteorite, along with a ring so fancy that it can project a screen bigger than your face AND automatically change pictures when you need it to!
    -Back to our heroes! They...have had no luck in finding the bully Ishizumai. Oh well, might as well have FOOD TIME again.
    -Yanappu's not looking so good.
    -Iris seems confident that she can find something that'll help...and she does! Meanwhile, Ishizumai just seems kind of baffled.
    -Hey, it's the first time seeing the BW gang in sleeping bags and pajamas!
    -Dento cheers Ishizumai up, and...the scene changes to TR doing an awesome infiltration mission! Complete with wall scaling, high tech goggles, and invisible beams that trigger an alarm. At this point, I have to say that I'm legitimately interested in the new TR plot and don't miss the old JJM much.
    -Back to our heroes again, this time in the morning! Yanappu's feeling better, and...wait, Ash and Dento are in their jammies, but Iris isn't? Does she just wear her regular clothes to bed?
    -Ishizumai insists on challenging the bullies without other people/pokemon's help, and...it doesn't go so well. Time for a plan!
    -The gang splits up the bullies by luring them with pokemon food. I guess the idea is that Ishizumai might stand a chance if there's only one of them to worry about at a time?
    -One down, via being tricked into LAUNCHING A BOULDER INTO ITSELF.
    -Next one! Tricked into getting itself stuck between two cliffs, followed by an ass kicking.
    -Final one! And...oh wait, Ishizumai doesn't want to attack if it could hurt the shell it's trying to save. That complicates things.
    -The bully gets stuck, then attacks happen, and...Ishizumai's glowing red and I really dunno what's happening right now. But Ishizumai ends up getting its shell back, which is all that really counts.
    -And a sunset goodb...Ishizumai is following them. Dento's so getting a new Pokemon~
    -...did Dento just say "Ishizumai getto de GOOD TASTE!"? I think he did!

    A pretty fun episode overall. I actually started suspecting Dento was going to get Ishizumai about halfway through - all the "Ishizumai stares at Dento in wonder" hints were as subtle as a sledgehammer. Now that leaves all the main BW with at least one new Pokemon caught since their debut...except James. But I'm sure he'll get a Pokemon eventually.

    what's the attack the boss bully ishizumai used - the glowing yellow ball? Was it a new animation for ancient power?

    Dento getting an Ishizumai sounds interesting. But still, I think James needs a poke'mon more than Dento right now.

    As I said on the previous page I'm fairly certain Dento said it was Knock Down, but I could be wrong.

    Not really, Team Rocket next confrontation will be much later I think they will only have a battle with the trio in the desert or in Huin city so Dent kinda needed more of a pokemon then Kojiro so he doesnt keep spamming Yannapu, same with Iris I hope she gets Zurugu on 16/17.

    This was a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable episode. I always loved this side of anime, the one where writers would take the things outside of the box and the real life, showcasing how Pokemon behave in the wild or in this case, how does a wild Ishizumai make itself a new shield. I really, really loved that.

    The unexpected focus on Dento and his capture really surprised me since I didn't have any clue, even with all the previews I've seen before. I was astonished by the animation as well, made me love Ishizumai more than before, especially with those badass moves. There really isn't anything I disliked about this episode, except the lack of Ash's other pokes. Also liked how Iris helped helped Dento's Yannapu, their interactions were nice.

    And finally we have Team Rocket. Can't say much expect for the fact that I approved their switch the serious members ever since the day 1 of Best Wishes. This episode changed nothing. The super, awesome spy scenes and no blast-offs really made me like them better. I only hope that leads up to something in the future, though. Overall, an enjoyable (non-filler) episode.

    My god.

    I liked this episode. It was...cute. Infact, I think Yanappu and Ishizumai are my favourite Pokemon of the main characters (Tsutarja too...). I think it was that scene when Ishizumai put the blanket on Yanappu that got me to like them.

    Now let's see if it can get loving screentime.
