    I had my doubts about this episode considering that I thought it would be incredibly predictable. In the long run, it turned out that this episode was not too bad. For some reason, I found Meowth and Exploud hilarious in this episode.

    Everything I said, I was just trolling you all.

    Still no confirmation on Amoonguss' gender though. I imagine it was skipped just because of Frillish being female but Amoonguss could be female too.

    Wait how many episodes of the island arc are not filler out of curiosity? I was so hoping this one would take another route but it just made me realize Emolga is kinda manipulative.

    I laughed when everyone was happy saying emo emo emo since emo is known as a group of people who are sad XD

    Depending on your criteria, every episode can be considered filler except maybe alexa and claire.

    The best parts of this episode were when emolga and snivy were really going at it and when Team Rocket found out that emolga was just using them. Overall Much better episode than I expected.

    Add the First ep, Rotom episode, Noivern episode, and the last one and that's it I think.

    Anyways this ep is still pretty meh imo. Nice to see an Exploud get some action though.

    For me Team Rocket made this episode. It was great to see them being used more in this episode as part of the actual plot instead of disrupting it (which I don't mind also). Add in the Emolga mischief and her interactions with Snivy, I thought it was a decent episode.

    Also, I have to mention the XYZ reference, that was great .

    Nice episode, on to the next one!

    Not a bad episode. It's nice to see another home based episode from the BW family in a near ending season.

    Emolga was cuteness overload. Obviously sold many more plushies of herself in Japan.

    While it's practical, I find Alexa being absent from a few episodes a little saddening. I'd like for her to be around, but what good would she do anyway? She's got First World Reporter Problems these days. It's a tough life. Wish we could see more of Noivern.

    Default "Team Rocket's Shocking Recruit!"

    Darn, I didn't like Iris in this episode at all! Geez, Oshawott(punched by Pignite for stealing food lol), Pignite and Scraggy are the ones who started the mess, causing Emolga to attack them.....yet Iris blaimed only Emolga for the trouble. Iris dismissing Emolga running off like that made me dislike her even more. Jeez, What's up with Iris's favorism for Axew? It really annoyes me see that Pokémon crying and getting lost over and over. It clearly shows that Axew isn't as good as Clair was making it out be in "A Pokémon of a Different Colour!".

    It was kinda funny when Emolga winked hearts and attaracted Woobat, it good to know what Woobat's gender is. I liked how Emolga 'used' Team Rocket to get revenge at Iris, she kinda deserved it for blaiming her like that. Also, it's nice her interactions with Snivy after a long time. As for Team Rocket, they were annoying as always.....but I liked the XYZ reference they used. xD

    Overall, it's an okay episode. Not good, but not bad too.

    The best thing about this episode was the facial expressions. It was nice to get Iris development with her ability to speak with dragons, but it's way too late in the saga for anything meaningful.

    Nice touch having everyone in Emolgas imagination talking like her when explaining her plan.
    So THAT'S where Woobat's eyes are.

    Not one of the best episodes, but I did have a few parts I liked: Meowth refusing to translate Snivy and Emolga's argument (adult joke? LOL) and Emolga imagining itself saving with the day with everyone just saying "Emo emo emo". LOL Her taking part in the motto was cute too. I did love Team Rocket, as always, but Iris was a little quick to judge for my taste. I could feel for Emolga being so upset.

    Iris's Emolga joining the TRio was such a tease really. I wish she had joined them permanently and not just for 1 measly episode. 5/10

    'Underestimate Team Rocket? Bad twerps...'

    Brilliant quote (after 'Emo' of course). One of the best things BW did was have final point episodes where Team Rocket seemed justified being around. In all other regions they had fallen so badly behind Ash's lot they look pointless fighting them, especially with the bigger arcs taking place, while in BW they still have some decent technology and schemes and some degree of relevancy (though perhaps because they started off super competent and feared by the heroes that region so when they decayed it was only to bumbling but still half way threatening). Stuff like this would have strictly been a first or second season episode in other regions.

    It also looks like they finally solved that whole 'only durable against electricity but nothing else' alloy issue from before. :P

    Even under the theory Emolga was unfairly judged at the start, it felt like she got off easy in the end. Her retaliation tripled the vindictiveness of what she suffered. You almost root for the trio when they find out she's duped them and decide to make the little runt squirm. Then again Emolga is kinda famed for being bad at being a hero Pokemon. Some here seem surprised she didn't turn evil for real.
