    This is an old episode, but I'll post some of my opinions here. (My first post- I'm going to cry)

    First off- Cilan's scared of Purrloin. What happened to him? He was trembling when he was remembering, and he refused to say a thing. I hope it isn't as stupid as the whole Dee-Dee- Disaster! That was fairly strange.

    Secondly- Male and male and...MALE?! I was laughing my head off, but i still find it downright stupid of Meowth and Oshawott to love a guy! At least Zorua was a girl!

    A few strange points, but a good episode all the same. Not to mention the movie came out on the same day!

    It was nice for Cilan to be afraid of a Dark Pokemon and not a cutesy or girly looking Pokemon.

    My ideal battle ever!

    And hopefully, he isn't afraid of it for a dumb reason.

    I don't care. As long as it's not a pinkish or cute Pokemon is fine with me.

    My ideal battle ever!

    When the purrloin trainer said that the purrloin is a boy, I was shocked and it knocked me for a loop. I want to know why Cilan is afraid of purrloin. If the writers has the fear like the dee dee fear of pluse and minun, it would be silly. It does give a change of fears to the characters
    May: Tentacruel
    Misty: gradyos
    Dawn: pluse and minun
    Cilan: purrloin

    My theory
    Cilan getting tricked by a purrloin and ended up lost in the woods in Straition City when he was a younger trainer

    LOVED this episode. Loved it, loved it, loved it. It's definitely different from all the other times Meowth has fallen in love with a cat pokemon. It's a tossup whether this episode or "Unfair Weather Friends", which had the same kind of twist, did it better, but who cares, it was still a great twist. I liked Meowth and Oshawott competing for purrloin's affections, too, it was so funny.

    This episode was good. I wonder how Cilan got his fear for Purrloin, I think his fear is quite similar to Dawn's fear of Plusle and Minun. I'm glad the Purrloin reunited with his trainer. The twist at the ending was shocking! Purrloin seemed a girl, but it turned out to be a male. It's hilarious that Oshawott and Mewoth mistaken a female male Purrloin for a female one and fell in love with it. XD
    Their reactions were priceless at the end.

    This was a good episode. Cilan's fear of Purrloin was funny as well as Meowth having to escape from yet another Pokeball. Meowth and Oshawott's hilarious reactions when they found out Purrloin was male were great. Serves them right for how they were behaving towards each other though.

    Oshawott and Meowth liking Purrloin and not even knowing that justit was male was too funny. Purrloin's such a trap. 7/10

    Default Same Sex affections and attractions is not a joke

    This is a highly problematic part of this episode. It's treating same sex relationships and sexuality as a joke. Having Meowth and Oshawott act horrified when they realize Purrloin is male makes the assumption that being attracted to someone of the same gender is something to be ashamed of. I made a similar comment in relation to the episode "Sticking with who you know." It's disappointing the writers would inject such a homophobic microaggression to generate humor. Even the way the trainer is sort of sadly says Purloin's a guy at the end is highly heterosexists - Why does she instantly assume Meowth and Oshawott are Heterosexual all along when they're clearly flirting with her male Purrloin. I would have assumed the Pokémon's gender or biological sex is not ambiguous to other Pokémon so the more logical conclusion should surely be that Meowth and Oshawott were same sex attracted.

    The entire joke is centred on the premise that same sex relationships are invalid, or something to be avoided or ashamed of. There is little humour to be found in this and it's certainly not stupid to be in love with someone of the same gender.

    But this is the problem. Why should it be awkward for someone to be attracted to someone of the same sex. The reactions of Meowth and Oshawott merely reinforce a highly heteronormative notion that same sex relationships are something to be feared or treated with disgust.

    It's rather sad that the only LGBTQIA+ representation we get in the anime is where scenes of affection between male Pokémon are used to as a source of humour and in being so convey the message that same sex attraction and relationships are lesser than opposite sex ones. By contrast opposite sex relationships while not central do get more positive representation - XY was happy to insert thousands upon thousands of express "amourshipping" hints, yet Ash has never kissed Pikachu.

    This is a story about Ash Ketchum and his loving partner Pikachu. These two share a bond far beyond that of ordinary pokemon and trainer. Together they pursue Ash's dream to be pokemon master and make friends with many different people and pokemon along the way. He and Pikachu train everyday to make this happen to fulfill their dream. But the path to victory is lined with danger. There are many challenges ahead for this couple.
