    After watching again and actually knowing what's being said, I found it to be rather nice of an episode. Nothing really big and exciting happened but since when did shows always have to have those kinds of episodes...never.

    This episode clearly wasn't meant to be an action packed thrill ride episode, just a nice little cool down for us.

    It first used it in BW010 against Trip's Servine or Frillish, not sure if it used it again after that until this episode though, but it's know it for a while now.

    I would say its less of a filler because Snivy got a battle, the location doesn't make it less of a filler indeed but I understand what they say, its one of the most important places of the region they are traveling.

    Only saw the episode two days ago, got to say this was the worst episode in BW uneventfull and boring and if something can be called a filler I agree this episode can be seen as one.

    I had high hopes for this episode, for Snivy to actually get a good battle and the plot to be more interesting maybe thats why I didn't like it, not that it was bad its just the one I least like this region that all, I fell asleep seeing in for the first time XD.

    So wow, I was thinking that this episode would be super-special-awesome because Gothitelle shows up in it. After watching the episode though, I've come to realize that it was your standard filler episode where nothing actually happens, in retrospect. Still, there were some good moments here and there. I really liked how the Skyarrow Bridge looked as Ash, Iris, and Cilan all made their way towards it at the start of the episode. Seeing Ash almost crash into that one chick was pretty funny, though I hated that clown music that was playing. What I found really interesting was that Ash swapped Sewaddle for Pidove at the Poke Mart. Looks like he is really rotating his team. FML. Ash and friends then met up with the popo, I mean Officer Jenny. It was nice to see her again. I was surprised that she had a Swanna, though. Seeing her attempt to clear the fog was funny as well. But then, just as Ash and friends walked on the Skyarrow Bridge, they were attacked! They looked up and saw Lady Gaga Gothitelle! Ash scanned it into his Pokedex as he usually does with new Pokemon, and then that Gothitelle attacked Ash and friends some more. I was wondering why it was acting like a total witch, but I figured that I'd find out later. Ash sent out his Snivy to fight Gothitelle, but its Leaf Blade attack wasn't effective. Just as Ash had it attack with another move, Gothitelle attacked and Ash and friends flew off the bridge from the look of things. As Ash, Iris, and Cilan got up from the ground, they noticed that the Skyarrow Bridge seemed to be under construction or something, which was really weird considering how it looked good before. They were invited to ride a boat to Castelia City by this one little girl and her Gothitelle. The Gothitelle didn't sit right with Ash, but he and his friends got on the boat anyway. As they set off, that little girl offered Ash and friends some snacks and everyone was having a great time. Cilan seemed to be worried, and as he and the others arrived at the port, they realized that it looked exactly the same as where they set off at the start. Wow, sort of trippy there. After observing the little girl and her Gothitelle, Ash and friends introduced themselves to her. After discussing things with her, Ash and friends returned to sitting and waiting. I was wondering what exactly they were waiting for, but then Cilan started discussing his theory with them. I was actually sort of surprised by Cilan's observations. The Gothitelle then left the little girl on some errand, and Ash, Iris, and Cilan followed it to wherever it was heading. You know, normal stuff.

    Once Ash and friends caught up to Gothitelle, it got this really freaky look in its eyes; those were the eyes of the Devil himself! Ash and friends talked to it, but it acted like a total jerk and it attacked Ash and friends with its Psybeam attack. Luckily, they managed to dodge just in time. Ash figured that he'd have to use force on Gothitelle, so he sent out his Snivy to battle against it. Snivy did a good job of dodging Gothitelle's Psybeam attacks, and I was impressed by its agility. However, its Vine Whip attack was blocked by a barrier and then its Leaf Blade attack was evaded and Gothitelle used Double Team, which made tons of Gothitelle. God, those were creepy as truck! Snivy started getting tired, but it used Leaf Storm, which was countered by Gothitelle's barrier. Gothitelle used Psychic to make all of the rubble around the bridge float in midair, and things looked dire at that moment. Luckily though, some chick appeared to stop Gothitelle. It took me a minute, but I soon realized that the chick was the same chick from the Poke Mart. It turned out that she was the little girl who was seen with Gothitelle before. And yeah, I was sort of scratching my head there for a minute lol. The lady started talking about the past, and it looked like she left the Skyarrow Bridge area because they didn't need a boat when it was finished. She took Gothitelle along, but it wandered off when the little girl grew up. Or something like that, I'm not 100% sure since this episode was bananas. The lady started recalling all of her sweet memories as a child with Gothitelle, but eventually, Gothitelle returned the lady and Ash and his friends back to the present. As they all looked up at the Skyarrow Bridge, they saw Gothitelle, but then it vanished in some mist, never to be seen again. As Ash and his friends were all sort of standing around, Officer Jenny appeared. She left again after discussing something with them, and then Ash and friends were able to go on the Skyarrow Bridge again. The lady went with them and then they all sort of said their goodbyes. Ash seemed pumped for his Castelia City Gym battle and he and his friends proceeded onwards towards Castelia City. There, that was all. Seriously, I like odd episodes as much as the next person, but this episode had a Johto-esque filler feel to it. I know that it isn't real filler because of the Skyarrow Bridge and Ash swapping Sewaddle for Pidove, but it was a boring episode that didn't make sense in most places. I'm giving this episode a 5/10, which is generous for such a hot mess of an episode. Anyway, stay faaaabulous~

    How many of the people complaining about this episode only watched a raw with no understanding of japanese? This was a highly emotional and dialogue heavy episode for the gothitelle and the girl. Really, she did just miss the time she spent with the girl. It was a kind of jerk-ish thing to do to not figure out what to do with Gothitelle when the girl went to school. That's what started the whole mess.

    The reunion on the unfinished bridge was definitely emotionally charged. I got broken up myself during that. It's moments like that that highlight the intense bond that people and Pokemon can have. One minute, Gothitelle was angry, pissed off and firing off psychic attacks at Snivy, and the next, it was crying in happiness to see the girl. Personally, that's good writing.

    I can't wait to watch this dubbed and see how they do it.

    This episode was ok... It was cool to see Gochiruzeru and Swanna for the 1st time. Gochiruzeru is really strong, able to defeat Ash's Tsutarja very easily when they were trying to pass to get to the other side of the bridge. Gochiruzeru's flashback illusions were really cool. It had a good friend who used to run the Boat services to be able to cross the bridge. Goshiruzeru was sad because the girl had to leave and the Boat services had to permanently shut down. The girl returned and was reunited, the Illusion goes away and the Gang was able to cross the bridge finally. It was funny when Swanna tried to use Defog to dispel the Fog, but failed to get rid of it.

    45/100

    Well I thought this episode was nice with the gang going back in time and everything. It kinda reminded me of Celebi and Joy from Pokemon Chronicles.

    This episode was Ok. I liked the idea for the flashback world, that was pretty sweet. Also cool to see Gothetelle for the first time and it is also very strong. 6.5/10

    I can't believe this episode is receiving so many bad reviews... o.o

    Personally, I LOVED it. The episode was really emotional. Very sad yet very happy at the same time. The story was amazing. It almost made my cry when the flashbacks of Sally and Goth were shown... I could care less if this episode is classified as a "filler."
    I agree 100% with @raz1337 :3. This episode is a great example of how close Pokemon and their trainers cane become. Plus, battling isn't the only thing in Pokemon .

    I was pretty bummed after the next dub title was revealed but, thankfully, this episode was an effective pick-me-up that helped lift my spirits a bit.

    It was a good episode. Ash and friends end up in a world created by Gothitelle. The episode was moving and emotional. Can't wait for the next episode.

    A great emotional ep. At first I was like; Is this what Gothitelle really sounds like but then further into the ep. I realized she was just angry in the beginning. Really liked the story that went with it.

    Man I am loving this new generation of Pokemon. The games and the Anime. I say it was well worth the long wait for a new gen.

    It was a very emotional episode. I'm glad the writers decided to use this type of story line for this episode. It taught a good lesson without being heavy-handed.

    I don't understand why some people dislike this episode so much. What, not enough action for you guys?

    This was a nice episode with an interesting story but some people here are so negative about everything and think all fillers are bad (altough i don't think this was a filler) and look for little details to complain, don't really get why they still watch this anime.

    I liked this episode! But I just cant see why the girl didn't just buy a pokeball and ask Gothitelle to go with her. I'm sure many people who go to collage are trainers.

    That upset me a bit, but oh well.

    Awesome episode in my opinion. Even though this is "filler", I think that there was nice interaction between Ash, Cilan, and Iris. All the talk about doctors was very "foreshadowy". Sounds like there's lot's of hospitals around Unova for training and schooling. Interesting.

    Why didn't she capture Gothitelle?

    I heard a lot of bad things about the episode so I decided to skip it when it originally aired in Japan, but I really liked. I loved Gothitelle's story and connection to her friend. The story was well placed.

    It just comes to show that an episode doesn't have to be action packed to be great.

    Still didn't like this episode. In my opinion this was the worst BW episode.

    I'm not really into the anime, I just watch the episodes as they come out, so I might be wrong about this.

    Is it just me, or was the music amazing in this episode? It was very diverse, unlike the usual remixes of game music and had quite an epic feel to it. Maybe I was just noticing it a little more today, but still...
    I spend hours making team plans, quite proud of them. In order of awesomeness:

    HeartGold team: + HM slave
    Platinum team: + Double HM slave. I tried. Never doing it again.

    This episode was pretty good. Nice to see Gothitelle. It's weird. Early this week, I had a discussion with my sister about our past memories of the good life and it happened to be in this episode. :P

    Fine episode. Learning about Gothitelle's past was kind of cool, too. I think that's pretty much the only thing interesting, aside from that, it was nice to see Snivy again. But again, she won't appear for about seven episodes, but due to the Team Rocket VS. Team Plasma episodes being postponed, it'll be about five weeks, I think.

    Very much an emotionally driven episode and I really enjoyed it, and the title now makes sense :P. Seeing Gothitelle experience eternal misery because the life she once enjoyed with a little girl named sally was ripped away from her because she had to go to medical school. The reunion was wonderful and then the mysterious ending when gothitelle disappeared. The only thing I can think of is she/he has gone off to live her/his life in happiness now her sadness has been resolved and do not think that a ghost was involved.

    To me it was an alright episode. There were a few good things:
    •Nice visuals of Skyarrow
    •I was so glad that they gave Snivy more screentime
    •It was a nice story I suppose
    •Good interesting look into the past

    However for me there were a few bad things:
    •I didn't feel that they made Gothitelle's appearance that good. I thought they could've done more with it
    •Even for a single setting episode, to me it got a bit monotonous and boring
    •Same for the dialogue. And there wasn't really any mystery. It was obvious that Gothitelle was angry about the loss of the Water Taxi business
    •I don't think there was enough interaction between the characters

    But on average it was, well, average. I think my hopes were too high after the last two brilliant episodes. But anyway, Castelia City should be a nice welcomed change for the anime next
    Running for the thrill of it
