I agree with everyone on Belle. I like it when Ash's rivals are crazier than he is. Even hypocritical Iris has to admit that Belle is more childish than she perceives Ash to be.
Can you just admit you hate Iris?

I mean that I liked Bel's premier more than Iris' premier. Bel was very animated and interesting.
Im only pointing this out because before everyone said Iris was amazing, now some of those people said "iris is not doing much, she is just taking up space, etc."
Watched the episode.
Best of of Best Wishes so far. Like I said before, Belle needs to be a rival. I can't stress that enough. She was weird, funny, stupid, but awesome at the same time. Chillarmy got got spotlight for being a pretty bland Pokemon. Its obsession helped it.
Sucker for comedy? You bet. Did I like this episode? I think that's obvious. God, Belle is a riot.
Iris and her ninja jumping is become a very amusing occurrence.
I nearly fell out of my chair laughing when I saw the look on Dento's face when she was "defacing" his spoon. Classic.-Dento also had a great moment with Bel nabbing his spoon. And him subsequently sad moments with it (and his facepalm. His facepalm was great). And he commented on Bel/Chillarmy's compatibility so glad to see they haven't forgotten his Sommelier-ness.
"I'm not really here that much, if at all. I've moved on, to a different site."
"But, it's been fun. I'll come back every so often, but for the most part, I won't post much."
Bel was just awesome, i don't mind her being a clutz even though it does give into the stereotype about blonds (I mean there's Cynthia, Caitlin, etc still).
It seems like she will be a rival to Ash now, which is awesome! I hope to see her in more episodes, I want to see Cheren still too. But I'm more of Bel fan. ^^;

Caitlin: What? Is this youtube now? ._.
Cynthia: Thumbs up.
To my shame, I call stuff "gay" all the time. However, the gay guys I know don't mind. These things always look worse in the form of written text, to be fair, so it's usually best to curb it when written (like on an internet B) I think.
It's not a GOOD thing that the word "gay" has come to mean something stupid or rubbish because obviously gay people aren't all stupid and rubbish. But then there are loads of bad things about the English language that continue to slip by. Like "I could care less," for example. You might even interpret the term "gay" as stereotyping even if used properly, anyway. Not all gay people are happy by default, lol >_>
tl;dr: not necessarily condoning it but it is an accepted phrase in that context.
This episode was cool, btw. Good to see Ash getting a win, since I thought it would tie, but I can't help feel like they've thrown Bel in to be like Barry: act as a rival clearly inferior to Ash to make Ash not look like a total weakling all the time when he loses to people like Shooti. That and for comic relief.
Another couple of personal highlights: "sexy" Chillarmy. Funny to see Snivy get Attracted in the first place, but that was hilarious. In fact I'm going to work it into my sig.
Bel telling Oshawott to use Hydro Pump >_>
Dento freaking out over the spoon.
Bel accidentally capturing Chillarmy. Funny.
All in all, great ep...and there's also the awesomeness of her having Chaoboo, which looked great (as did all its moves). And naturally, Shooti will have Jalorda soon. She will have Enbuoh. You know what that means for Ash (maybe!)! Let's hope so, anyway.

I rather enjoyed this episode, it's definitley one of the better ones that has aired so far.
The way Belle caught Chillarmy was great and very different, it may be a contender in future battles.
I'm also glad that the writers decided to make her Ash's rival since I never felt like Shooti was that great and I like her character a lot more. I hope Cheren becomes a rival as well.
Wonder if we'll see Bell's dad one of these days. It would be nice character development.

Stop the "is Iris a good character?!" derail. Now. Teshub's just trying to stir up trouble & bash Iris, and you're all falling for it.
Now get back to discussing this wonderful episode!
Yes, that is a lego Freddie Mercury.
I agree with Juputoru about everbody falling for Teshub's posts.
I have a question, what move did Belle tell pikachu to use?
Question: If we know if crap like this is 90% of his posts, why do we keep letting him do this?

Anyway, what do you guys of Bel being so overexcitable? I think the writers will have to cut some of that down. Because after a while it will be too much and we might get bored of it. I hope Bel can still maintain her clever characteristics, like when she had the idea to use the spoon and plate cover. But next time Dento should stand for himself.
Only watched because I was interested in how they would portray Bel (I love her design and how she is a female rival), and I must say that I like it. She is pretty much a female Barry, and who doesn't love Barry. Battle was pretty short, but it's about time Pikachu started OHKO'ing opponents. Liking her Chaobuu's moves as well. Heat Stamp looked pretty badass.
I guess there are a few tidbits of this series that have sucked me in. Especially Ash's current party. Would like to see more of Bel later on as well as Cheren. Rivals like in the games makes it pretty awesome.
As for Iris, still wish there was a mute option for whenever she speaks. Doesn't help that from what I have seen, she just derps on the sidelines and commentate like Max did.

U mad bro?
yeah it's just you
iris is as awesome and funny as she was at the start i enjoy every moment of her. except maybe during the snivy capture episode where i found some of her lines just a touch annoying.
as far as bel i find her rather annoying yet she has the potential to grow on me so i don't know yet how i'll end up feeling about her.
