You think it would be a crime for an episode to be this awesome...well good thing there isn't other wise we'd miss out on all this awesome stuff.
Cilan alone makes this episode perfect for me. Anything else is just bonus.
Got a little worried for Dwebble when it's shell got cracked, was wondering if that would lead to something in another episode but it ended up fixing it itself. I was shocked by the new move it used, not sure what it was but it was awesome, seriously, giant rocks coming out of nowhere falling on you...oh man Cilan and his Pokemon can't get any more awesome...then again I always say that and they always do get more awesome...it's kind of scary.
Interactions...oh how I love interactions. Bianca loves Zorua...she's clearly going to steal it. I love how Bianca is pretty much interacting with everyone...although I don't think she interacted with Trip at all, well some other time. I wished she used a new Pokemon, but whatever, Minccino brought some laughs for me.
Burgundy is crazy...she really wants Cilan to be inflected with as much pain as possible, she was basically cheering on Gurdurr to kill Dweblle...she needs to be placed in a cushioned room...but she's awesome like this.
Langley was great too. I like how we see she doesn't always have something crawling up her. She seemed almost normal during the Bianca chasing Zorua scene, not sure what she said but nothing about her physically said "crazy girl". So her Pawniard is female, not surprising. The battle looks intense, I was wondering if there would be a cliffhanger, I was going back and forth in the end I thought there wasn't going to be one...then there was.
Kenyan...poor guy, no one can say his name right. Butch and him would be great friends...or is it Botch...whatever. I wish he used a new Pokemon but whatever, Zebstrika was fun to watch, plus it was funny seeing it get tickled and slapped.
Iris...she must represent the Cilan haters or something, she's always annoyed when Cilan gets into his mood, Iris is great but she needs to learn her place, Cilan runs this show either love him or get out. She uses Emolga...well I guess you can use the same Pokemon as much you want then.
Ash is pregnant, he wants to know if Trip will be there for him, nope he walks out on him. Well this is a new twist in the rivalry, by the end Trip will take care of the child...while Ash doesn't return to see them again for 4 years even though it's really only been 4 days.
Speaking of Trip, I'm shocked he didn't stay...oh wait no I'm not. Exactly the kind of thing I would see him do. He seemed disappointed in losing(Pretty much most people would be), but he didn't seem like a sore loser or anything he knew Cilan was going to be a tough one.
Luke was great too, filming everyone. So he does use Golett it seems, cool. Zorua was awesome, all it's tricks, I really hope Luke stays so Zorua can stay, plus Luke is cool too.
Some battles were pretty short, and I'm fine with that since two were with "COTD" so I'm not really crazy about that, I wish that Kenyan vs Bianca would have been fully shown or at less mostly shown like Cilan vs Trip but whatever.
Overall, the episode was great for me, worth the two weeks of waiting. Now...two more weeks of waiting for the next episode, if it's as good as this then I'm fine with the wait.
