Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.
Bonnie: Come on, Dedenne! I want that Gym Badge!
Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

The dub handled the retcon so much better than the Japanese version since they made all of the little flubs make sense
Spoiler:- On Hiatus for the Holiday Season:
Another terrible dub name. Well, this episode found like an episode in Sinnoh: lacking. The Japanese version was better.
Cilan was a little annoying today. And so was Bianca.
The dubbed gets a 5/10.
The Japanese version gets a 6/10.

I just saw the episode on Cartoon Network's Western feed. I can't believe they retconned the episode. Bianca was supposed to accompany Ash and his friends later on in the episode on their way to Nimbasa City.
I also can't believe the dub followed the episode's postponement.
Plus, Wikipedia said that there was a big wave in the competition (the reason why the episode was postponed in Japan), which I didn't get to see today.
If TV TOKYO bans "Team Rocket vs. Team Plasma" from broadcast and butchers more episodes like they did that one, I'll be so steamed.
I believe Team Rocket is a team of rocket scientists.
They're all safe. They have Magolor, after all!

I found Cilan slightly irritating for the first time, but there's nothing like this in the future so far. Bianca and Iris were good with the comedy.
Really wish Ash or Bianca would have caught that Frillish. Especially if Ash caught it over Palpitoad.

You know it's odd. Many people found Dento irritating in this episode =/ yet this was the episode I really liked him (like is it just me? Is it because he fishes?) How was he annoying ^^; I just don't see it
maybe it's because I don't watch them in english? I don't know
I don't think Jason Griffith can express joy well....
I know this would never happen in a million years but if Misty were here it'd be fun to see her & Cilan clash on who's the better fisher
Also, I still say that Cilan can make boring stuff like filing tax incomes exciting
Spoiler:- On Hiatus for the Holiday Season:
I thought the episode was okay. But it would have made it a million times better if Bianca caught Frillish and Cilan got to keep Basculin!!!

Please read and review. I'll be eternally grateful.
Meh... I still think this was one of the worst episodes of BW, but its horribleness actually made me feel nostalgic. It reminded me of one of those trashy Sinnoh fillers that are still strangely enjoyable, like this episode. Why do I seem to enjoy every single Pokemon episode, even the poorly written fillers?
Kudos to TPCi for not revealing the "fact" that the trio is in Castelia.
Maybe it's because I knew about it, but this episode felt terribly out of place; and because of that I couldn't enjoy it. I still say Bianca should have gotten to catch that Frillish. It would be cool if the writers did that for us.
Proposed Alpha Sapphire Team
This episode was good. Nice to see Basculin; one of my favorite 5th generation pokemon. Also liked TR making reference to stealing pokemon for "the boss" again.
My First Ever Level 100 Team:
My Current Level 100 Team: ;635; ;598;70% of the Serebii population uses ultra powerful legendaries(also known as ubers) in their teams.
If you are one of the 30% that thinks outside the box
and doesn't use ubers, copy and paste this into your signature! (^started by SapphireL!)
Holy mother of uasgdi09430=92w34=5 423w=52=3. Team Rocket DIDN'T want to steal Pikachu! Man, they have grown smarter!
I don't think I would have lost any sleep if this disjointed mess of an episode stayed banned.

Fine episode. Cilan should have kept Basculin, but oh well. It can be disappointing that this was postponed, but at least that's one out of three postponed episodes out of the way.
It was a fun episode, I would have preferred this episode not to be retconned and for Cilan to keep Basculin but eh, can't help the anime these days.
I enjoyed this episode. It was fun to see cilan showing his fishing expertise: Reel in slowly and wait for the bite but remember it may only be tasting the bait at first. I also enjoyed Bianca today as she was over the top and over excited but she wasn't annoying and she made me laugh .
The only thing that annoys me is that the writers go out to edit the episode to fit the timeline but they don't do the job fully by missing stuff. Like Ash being surprised Cilan was a fishing connoisseur even though he was told when cilan caught stunfisk and he was surprised to see james' yamask when he has seen it on numerous occasions. However, only a minor thing for the episode but I still enjoyed it.
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.
