    I think just now Nurse Joy notified Ash something regrading the Opelucid City Gym which made Iris happy and Ash sad (it was before they got kidnapped). I think its is most likely regarding that he won't be able to challenge that gym.

    Burgundy isn't allowed to enter the mansion because she is a C-class sommelier. Also we seem to have a mystery pokemon that the girl likes.

    A filler but it was alright. At least we FINALLY saw a blast off! It wasn't Team Rocket but Burgundy will definitely do.

    So Ash finds out about Tachiwaki Gym from the butler of the mansion, and Cilan is happy about it

    So, let me sum up this episode:

    - Cilan defeats Pinot Noir with Zeustle, of course.
    - Cabernet gets zero development and is blasted off just like that.
    - Cilan turns out to be right, now that's a shocker.

    Zero Cilan/Cabernet development.

    The only development we got here was the Opelucid/Tachiwaki city one.

    Oh, and the irony, Cilan is the one who convinces Ash to go there. xD


    ....and now, her story begins.

    Which went how, exactly? Everyone seems to be very vague about it. What reason was given for why Ash should go to Tachiwaka City instead of Opelucid?

    Don't you think I would have already told you that if I knew Japanese? xD

    It is a good thing that the previous gen pokemon weren't included around this episode, because if it would have been Cilan would have been in a real tight spot to correctly guess the right pokemon for that girl.
    As the bases for Cilan choosing Foongus was because he could smell the scent of a Grass and Poison type pokemon around the girl and the only Grass-Poison type pokemon in Unova is the Foongus line.
    If previous region pokemons would have been added, he would have had a lot of confusion to select the right one considering that there are 4 other line of Grass-Poison type pokemons (minus the Foongus line).

    Seems to me that judging by the scene, Opelucid City is closed. But you should wait for someone who knows Japanese.

    Okay episode, it was actually okay that Ash didn't use any Pokemon. But LOL at the obvious "Sorry Ash not against Opelucid City Gym Leader, go for the Tachiwaki Gym Leader instead because that's the only gym you should go to."

    Cilan obviously knows who the gym leader is, or might know who the gym leader is.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    And thus everything was beautiful....

    Yeah there wasn't any character development, but this was a cute episode. Just looking back at the comments of people thinking Dent would be hard on Momocchi are just laughable. I mean seriously? You expected Dent to be mean to a little girl when he's been shown to be sweet around children before? And I had a feeling Tamagetake would be the Pokémon Dent had picked, the fact that his choice was a secret, there was an unknown Tamagetake appearing and Momo's reaction to Dent's choice all hinted at that possibility.

    You couldn't find anything negative about Dent in this episode basically. I mean in regards to his actions, not the no development.

    He did show off his skills, like for the FIRST time. We got to have a bit more inside info of how they do that, and also, Dento reconfirmed his Purrloin phobia. XDD

    Dento's perfect like Tama-chan. If he's a Stu so be it. As long as he reminds me of my Tama-chan. <3 The "Dento's too perfect rant" obviously won't effect my Dento lurv

    Still though, a very cute episode.

    I had a feeling not much development would happen after I saw Cabernet involved. Though, I'm happy that it showed his Purrloin fear. One day we'll get to the bottom of this i hope so far we are just scratching the surface of Pokemon Sommeliers.

    ONLY because Cilan picked up on the subtle nuance that Momocici (whatever the hell she's called) had already chosen a Pokemon partner.

    Even though judging by Momoicici's apology she wasn't supposed to.

    So Cilan didn't so much choose Momoicici's partner, he just sided with Momoicici's choice.

    Oh god, I really hope Pinot Noir returns. That guy is such a fabulous freak, he reminds of Harley.

    Btw I'm currently only talking through the pictures and did Pinot actually kiss Dent's hand?

    That's almost close to one of the theory's I had which would make Dent not seem negative in this episode.

    No he sniffed him. But that freaked me out. It looked like Dento was going to slap him. Death by fanboys? Check.

    Ah okay, still weird. And yeah I thought Pinot Noir did sniff Dent's hand, but I wasn't fully sure. I don't know why I didn't say that as well.
