    Default Baffling the Bouffalant! (727)

    Afro, GO! Bouffalant, NO!!

    On their way to Mistralton City, Ash & Co. enter a forest which is filled with Bouffalant. While traversing the forest, Ash & Co. get seperated from their Pokémon and they all learn that, in order to pass through the forest, they need to put on afros to blend in. However, when Axew loses its afro, it incurs the wrath of the Bouffalant and gets chased. Will the Pokémon meet up with their trainers again, and will they be able to get through the forest?

    The episode starts with the group walking along a path.

    Now the Pokemon are out. Oshawott rushes his food down and steals some of Tepig's. So Tepig starts the fight.

    Ash breaks up Oshawott and Tepig fighting.

    Incoming, Bouffalant!

    Iris and the starters got blasted off.

    Ash Pokedex's Bouffalant.

    Emolga still loves her apples, Cilan calls out to her.

    I didn't quite catch why Iris and the starters got separated from the rest of the group. Charging Bouffalant, which I thought was aiming for Ash, then an explosion of dust, and that's what caused the separation?

    This is just my opinion, if you don't support the main character of the show, why bother watching.

    Yes, that's what caused the separation.

    Now Iris is talking with Joy.

    Iris notices the Afro Wigs and Joy explains.

    Nice fantasy of how Afro's help passers by.

    The Afro's are in Audino's backpack.

    Joy gives them to the Pokemon, but Snivy doesn't want it.

    Joy stops a Bouffalant from charging near them, by putting a wig on Snivy.

    Snivy now accepts it.

    Oshawott are happy, then they're angry.

    Queue 3rd or 4th fight.

    Oshawott Water Guns Axew into a Bouffalant's hair.

    Axew's out and uses a bit of a bush for a wig, or by accident.

    Close call there for Axew.

    The others run into Nurse Joy, now they should be getting Afro's soon.

    Yep, they all get Afro's.

    Joy forms Pansage's hair into an Afro.

    Axew comes across a wild Sewaddle and Pidove. Pidove takes Axew's grass hair.

    A Bouffalant chases Axew.

    Dare Da? Emolga.

    Scraggy looks kind of cool with his green afro.

    Random Sewaddle, oops....


    It's cute how as stuck-up as Snivy can be, she really does care about her friends.

    Iris and starters find Axew being chased. Snivy saves Axew some how, by putting that grass thing on his head I think.

    Iris and Axew are reunited.

    The others all call out for the others, I love how deep Excadrill's cry was. Cute.

    Scraggy doesn't headbutt the Bouffalant inspecting them.

    Ash and Pikachu are scared.

    Bouffalant inspects Pansage and he's fine.

    Axew spots some plants on a cliff, for Bouffalant I think.

    Iris almost climbs up to get it, but she falls on a tree branch.

    Snivy, Oshawott and Tepig try to get it down.

    Oshawott smacks Tepig when he tried.

    Snivy settles Oshawott and Tepig.

    Iris spots a weak Bouffalant. It's left front foot is hurt.

    Missed opportunity.

    Why did Ash only have 5 Pokemon with him?

    The arguments about this being a kids show and the kids not caring is a bit silly actually. The kids care more than you'd think. If they didn't care, they simply wouldn't watch the show. Everyone has their favorites. The whole reason I started watching DP is because Ash caught a Gible. Prior to that, I didn't actually care very much and hardly watched. But as soon as Gible came into play, I started watching again.

    The problem is that the writers don't care enough, and when the writers stop caring, why should the audience continue supporting it?

    But the audience does support it, Pokémon is still one of the most popular anime series in Japan. Writers are obviously doing SOMETHING right, otherwise you and me wouldn't be watching this.

    Yeah guys, so Tepig didn't evolve.

    Maybe around Celestial Tower he might get his chance.

    maybe still Bianca has a Pignite already so maybe they're trying to delay evolution until they figure out what they're gonna do with her since having two trainers one recurring and the other main with the same poke might not seem to be in their best interest

    Not sure it will at this point. This episode has had a couple of really touching moments though.

    Snivy throws Oshawott up, Tepig's Flamethrower shoots Oshawott up further.

    Oshawott Razor Shells the plant. He gets it and Iris heals the injured Bouffalant.

    They leave the Bouffalant, but two more chase them as they don't have their wigs.

    Iris tries to talk with the Bouffalant.

    One uses Wild Charge.

    Iris's hair puffs up and she's okay.

    The starters go to fight, but the injured one helps out.

    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.

    They all reunite together.

    Lol at Iris's hair.

    Bouffalant shows them to a bridge, where they cross. They see a warning Bouffalant sign, a bit late ha?

    Cilan fixes Pansage's hair and Iris fixes her. They return the wigs and Joy leaves.

    The starters are all happy and the episode ends.

    No evolution.

    Nice assumption.

    So all this episode serves is just to have a break of all that has happened since the Chili VS Cilan Episode to the SG Krokorok Episode? What a borefest.

    It was funny how Ash asked Iris to give her Afro back to Joy only for Iris to notice that because of Wild Bolt her hair had turned afro like.

    Snivy is really a good planner. The idea of throwing Oshawott first then followed by Tepig who used his flamethrower as a propulsion system was good.

    Well at least Ash now has a good reason to not catch one of these things, they'd be picking fights with his pokemon due to the lack of hair.

    I'm all for "Starter" bonding episodes but this feels like it should've been placed abit earlier on timeline wise instead of now cause it feels so random.

    looked like an alright episode, always nice to see the Pokemon out of their balls, even if it is always the same few. Shame we never got to see the likes of Swadloon, Plapitoad, Stunfisk and Crustle in afros. Speaking of whom, I am assuming they have some kind of lunch rotation system, otherwise the poor neglected Pokemon must be starving!
    Anyways, while many might slate this as a "filler" I would presume its purpose was to show us all three of the starters together in their "cute" base forms one last time before the big Tepig evolution.

    Had to watch this again. Snivy refusing to wear the wig was gold, and their effort to get the plants for Bouffalant was amazing too.

    I honestly thought Tepig was going to evolve. Eh, maybe he will evolve in an episode focused around him? I don't know. I have yet to watch this episode, though, I'll just watch it for Snivy and Iris.


    ....and now, her story begins.
