This episode was alright. It was great to see Belle for the 1st time. It was cool to see Chaoboo and Chillarmy for the 1st time. Belle is one untidy and disorganized trainer. It was funny when she tried to command Mijumaru and Pikachu to use attacks. It was very cool when Chillarmy got himself caught in a Pokeball after dusting off the Pokeball Belle was holding. It was great to see a battle between Chaoboo and Pikachu, glad to see that Pikachu won. It was cool to find out that Chillarmy also knew attract.
When Chillarmy used attract, the screen showed that the Pokemon saw him as handsome. Belle was a really funny character

I don't like Bianca's voice...
Iris: Are you sure the recipe calls for this many Minccino?
Cilan:*Sighs* Hang on, I'll check.
Ash: What's happening?
Cheren: Yeah...he does that sometimes.

It's a good episode. Bianca's introduced and a Minccino steals Ash's badge case. It reminds me of the Murkrow episode in Johto and the Snorunt episode in Hoenn. Bianca gets Minccino when it tries to clean the Pokeball. Ash and Bianca have a battle, but she loses. She has a long way to go to be a better trainer.
Is it me, or Bianca is slightly taller than Ash?
Pretty cool episode. At first, I didn't really like Bianca's voice, but now it has grown on me. The mistakes were kind of annoying. Bulbapedia also pointed out that Minccino is misspelled in the title card and "Who's That Pokémon?". Regardless, this is one of my favorite BW episodes (I also like BW005 & BW010). In the Japanese Version didn't Bianca say for Pikachu to use Thunder Wave? I thought I read that on Serebii.net or somewhere. The Flame Charge mistakes were annoying though. I loved the animation though and all the battling.

No. She commanded Zap Cannon for Pikachu
Am I losing it or did this episode have the same animation-style that was used back in the Pokemon Advanced seasons? Cuz they definitely stopped using it during the whole DP seasons. I love those types of episodes which is why this ep. is my favorite right now!
-Bianca, definitely my favorite character right now. Ditsy as hell! I guess its true about blonds. lol.
-Minccino was alright too. I think my favorite part was when he used Attract on Snivy and she's lookin at him like "OMG" lol.
-Loved Bianca's reaction to Minccino being captured. "See, I got it."
-The battle between Pikachu/Minccino/Pignite was decent. Yeah I caught those moments when they called the wrong moves too but it was aiight with me.
-Plus some other funny parts. Too many to name right now.
10/10. Perfect score in a LONG time.
Does anyone think that Bianca telling Pignite to us Flamethower instead of Flame Charge those first two times was intentional on the part of the dub writers to show how flighty and ditsy Bianca is and Pignite was just use to her doing that with him?
And Bianca must one of those Hollywood valley girl types (like the girls of Clueless).
Today's episode was the best in comedic mode. And there's a couple of mistakes that surpassed my attention. I did catch the title made an error by titling "Mincinno" instead of Minccino.
The gang meeting the BW game rival, Bianca, was quite a treat. She's definitely like her game counterpart, but she seems more energetic in the anime. Looks like we have a decent replacement for Barry.
The highlight of this episode: CILAN'S SPOON. "My nice and clean spoon!"
I blew up with laughter when Bianca took it from Cilan to make the now dirty spoon the bait, to catch Minccino. Cilan felt so sad to have that precious spoon taken from him. xD
I also enjoyed how Bianca caught Minccino; by cleaning the PokeBall she had in her hand to catch it. Then the Poke Ball caught the sensor to catch Minccino, and now it's all Bianca's. Interesting capture I'll admit. Much more better in this case than the usual throwing.
Very enjoyable episode. Minccino, Bianca and the spoon made this all worth wild.
Was anyone else annoyed by Bianca's voice in the first part but then it seemed to fit halfway though? Who does her?
Yes i was annoyed by her voice in the beginning but then it grew on me.
Weird they did make soem move mistakes.... I wonder if it was intentional.

What can I say about this episode. I felt it to be a pointless filler other than Bianca catching Minccino. Kinda weird how it captured itself..
Like others, I did not like Bianca's voice at first, but it quickly grew on me. I guess I expected it to be higher and more whiny but it turned out good.
I LOVED Pikachu;s face after she called out for him to use Zap Cannon LOL
EDIT: Oh yes and I too beleive they had bianca call the wrong move names to make her seem more ditzy. I believe these mistakes were intentional.

I'm going to go ahead and call "intentional mistakes" on Flame Charge as well. She didn't know Pikachu couldn't use Zap Cannon, and Pignite doesn't know any better because that's how it was trained - anything with "Flame" in it = Flame Charge.
No, I'm not giving anyone credit for my team pose because I made it myself.
Bella Hudson doesn't sound that bad as Bianca. It could have been worse. At least it fits her age. I haven't watch any of the episodes as of the norm; however I might as well watch it due to Bianca making her appearance. Finally got a badge case.
As people said before, the highlight of the episode was definitely Cilan's spoon. "MY BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN SPOON!" and of course Minccino's capture. "OH MY GOSH, THIS POKéBALL IS DIRTY, I MUST CLEAN IT, CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN, WHAT'S THIS? AH, I'M SHROUDED IN DARKNESS NOW, NOOOOO!"
This episode is one of my favorite BW episodes, due to all the funny scenes and such.
Pretty good episode, on the whole. It's a shame Bianca left already, because I really liked her in this episode. Her hyper-exuberance made her occasional ditsiness (yeah, that's probably not a real word) seem quite natural to me. I love how she just turned up randomly, and forced everyone else to work at her own pace for an episode.
The battles, though, I was less than impressed with. All Ash seems to do at the moment whenever he encounters a wild Pokémon is to send party member after party member at it, flounder about with no real idea what he's doing, switch two or three times, and eventually exhaust the foe through sheer tenacity. We saw it against Snivy, and we saw it again against Minccino, and I think it's getting boring.
With Ash vs. Bianca, honestly, Ash only won because the writers decided that he was going to win before they even choreographed it. Pignite was all over Pikachu at the beginning, and then when Pikachu's Volt Tackle and Pignite's Flame Charge collided... well, the only thing that really decided the victory was what mood the writers were in that day. I hope the battles in Unova get more interesting, because so far, I've been disappointed.

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!!

Not a bad dub. Are you guys okay though? I NEVER heard Bianca say Flamethrower.
I hated Bianca's voice at first (sounded too shrill) but I don't mind it now. Bianca is still my favourite character. Loved her reaction when she caught Minccino.
Bell Hudson did her? Weird since her Japanese name is Bel. not sure why they change it. How old is she?
