This episode was really funny actually, I love Bianca's character the way she's just all over the place and randomly say words in song i.e. When she goes 'BYEEE' at the end
It also featured the great character of Oshawott, who comes out and patronizes Pikachu with the way he waves his arms at him. Oshawott is such a cool character.
I'm just glad I didn't hear Iris call anyone a kid (I think) because I really want to just punch her in the face each time she says that
I'm hoping that Ash gets to Nacrene City next episode (does he?) because some of the previous fillers were so boring, I mean that Trubbish Squad episode was, to me, was just so... So... ... zzzzz
On a last note, with Gen V being a parallel to Gen I, I really want there to be a kind of Jigglypuff character, that would be awesome
Running for the thrill of it
BTW, Bianca NEVER introduced herself.

Hold on... if this percentage was correct at the time of print, that means the actual percentage of false information is less than 100% if this signature is included. Which means that... no! I've become a slave to the system!!

She broke the fourth wall.
I like how they have her struggle as she looks through her bag kind of like in the game where she has trouble pulling the Pokeball out of her bag before battling you.

Other than that, I think Bianca is a great character. I did notice they made her less unsure and hesitant than she is in the games.
I hope it won't be long before we see more of her (and possibly Cheren? :O).
I've officially claimed Swampert!
I'm scared of Bianca.........
No, seroiusly, she is freaky. I still liked the episode. It was funny.
@Swampert trainer- Bianca just started training. Ash was a trainer for a long time. Besides, doesn't Pignite have a type advantage over Cilan and Lenora's pokemon?

This episode was a hundred times better in English. I'll admit that I was worried about Bianca's English VA, but there was nothing to worry about in the end. While I did think that her voice was a bit shrill at times, I still really liked it. I also like Minccino's dub voice, but Pignite's made me want to rip something. Seriously. Cilan and Iris managed to be in the background while not being completely bland, which was a nice change of pace. Overall, I loved the dubbed version of this episode. If only TPCi could be consistent with the rest of the dub :/

Even if Bianca did challenge the Striaton Gym, I think the Gym Leaders said the trainer can choose whichever trainer they wanted to. At least in this case, this happened for Ash in the anime.
~I just wanna feel that rhythm~
Umm aren't we forgetting the badge cases have preset 8 badges spaces. I'm thinking there are no anime exclusive gyms in unova.
I'd give this episode a 10/10, just because of Bianca's awesome character. She's a lot like her game counterpart really. I loved how disorganized, excitable, and ditsy she was. Minccino was cute and smart; his capture was interesting too. Bianca catching Minccino was about as interesting as May catching Munchlax.
And the quote of the day:
Cilan: "Oh no! My clean spoon!"
Sorry about your spoon, Cilan.
This was a really great episode. Bianca is a fun character who kept me interested the whle time with her wackiness. She different from her game counterpart, but that doesn't disappoint me. I'm a bit iffy on the voice, but I'm sure I'll get use to it. Cilan and his spoon also made me laugh; it reminded me of James and his bottle caps (I wonder if he still collects them). It would have been funny if after Ash fell off the tree Cilan asks him if he is alright, only for Ash to realize Cilan was talking to his cooking utensils. That would be a funny scene if it existed.
As great as the episode was, I wish the battle at the end of the episode wasn't as short. They could easily cut out the TR scene, as it isn't important to know that they are in Nacrene City - we would of found out the next episode they're in. Anywho, I don't like how Pignite launches three attacks at Pikachu while Pikachu just wins with a single Volt Tackle. I realize Pikachu is plot powered, but I'd perfer to see some back and forth between the two Pokemon before the fininshing blow.
All in all, a great episode. I can't wait for Bianca's next appearance. Also, Ash should have gotten an Xtransiever.

It makes more sense Bianca got at less one anime only badge.
Anyways, Bianca's voice was great here for me. Fits her perfectly. Pignite I thought sounded a little strange though.
Bianca is so awesome, loved her in here.
