    Dawn got scared when the Ariados were chasing her in a forest, does that make her similar to Misty? I don't think so...

    Serena was alone in the forest, so her getting scared after seeing Venipede and Vespiquen is a normal reaction. Serena is Serena, not Misty, May, Dawn or Iris.

    She wasn't scared of the Fushide, she was expressing distaste at the prospect of having to camp out that night while she was looking at them. It's pretty clear this isn't a Pokemon species she's particularly fond of, or particularly interested in spending much time around.

    So yeah, she doesn't like bugs.

    Is that what she expressing in the episode? Geez, Now I'm not sure if I should watch fansubs or not.

    Oh, that's too bad. I hope she'll get over it later in the series(Just like May got over her fear of Pokémon in AG).

    As has already bee mentioned, the only "translations" currently available for this episode are mostly just made-up guesswork. Please do not use this as your basis for the understanding of the dialogue.

    This was such a good episode.I loved it!

    Can't believe that I'm saying this but I'm an anime fan again^^

    Bonnie just colors everything that would have been stale dialogue between Clemont and Ash.I love how they're so careful with little details...like when Bunnelby couldn't really fit in the hole in the ground made by Dedenne.

    I loved that they payed attention to Fletchling and that Inkay sat on Wobbuffet's head and was kinda like a hat.

    XY is such an improvement.Gosh,I love it.

    The difference between Clemont/Bonnie and May/Max situation is that May was a Starting Trainer herself so she wasn't used to taking care of Pokémon for most of the series.

    So, it would have been odd for her to catch a Pokémon for Max when she couldn't handle her own Pokémon's properly. Plus, she would have needed the permission of her parents before she could catch a Pokémon for Max.

    In the case with Clemont, not only he is an Experienced Trainer, but is also a Gym Leader (which is being kept hidden in the anime for now). So, him catching a Pokémon as a keep-sake for Bonnie isn't odd or out of normal, since he could help Bonnie take care of the said Pokémon. Plus it doesn't seem like their parents are going to have any part/role in the anime. So, no need of taking permission from someone else other than Clemont himself.

    Technically, who likes Bugs especially poisonous ones.

    Even if someone likes one kind (lets say, Butterfly) who says they wouldn't hate another kind (lets say, Spider in this case).

    Would a normal person traveling alone in a forest want to camp at a place which is filled with Bugs of all kinds. I would say no, unless its an emergency and there is no other option.

    Similarly, Serena was traveling alone in a forest and decided to not camp in that place because it had poisonous Bug Pokémon's crawling around.

    This doesn't mean that she hates or doesn't like Bugs.

    As for this episode, i really feel that the writers would continue to make Bonnie take care of the groups Pokémon like she did for Pikachu, Fletchling and Dedenne. Atleast this would in a way make it possible for the writers to give all the Pokémon's some on-screen time.

    I'm pretty sure she's not afraid of Bugs. Just afraid of the scary Pokémon at night, which just turned out to be Venepede and Vespiquen. ^^

    Serena, afraid of Bug type Pokémon ? Not so sure...
    She wondered if she was forced to camp outside for the night, and then noticed the Venipede. First, Venipede are also Poison type Pokémon. Second, they are not the cutest Pokémon ever, too (though I find Venipede very cute), and Serena seems to show fashion interests, explaining why she may have a better taste for cute, enjoyable Pokémon. Why would anyone like to camp in a dark forest with crawling Poison type bugs around (aside of Bug type specialists) anyway ?
    As for Vespiquen's case, that's pretty obvious that she just scared Serena because she thought it was a human and it popped out quickly to attack her. How could you not just be surprised of seeing a Vespiquen screaming in front of you when two seconds earlier you thought it was a human ?
    Again, this is only assumptions, but I don't think she's afraid of bugs. The Vespiquen could easily have been a Beartic and it would have done the same effect.

    Misty literally hated every bug type. She hated caterpie, arguavly the cutest bug type ever. Serena being creeped out by a venipede is different.

    I liked this episode. Seeing Bonnie bond and take care of the pokemon is a nice break from the older guy usually doing the caring job (Brock). If gives Bonnie a bigger role than just being the tag along sibling like Max was and she's adorable. Her taking care of pokemon like Pikachu and Dedenne would be a good step for her to learn to become a pokemon trainer in the future. Clemont's failed inventions are funny and seeing the trio with Afros made me laugh. I'm wondering if Clemont will ever have an invention that doesn't blow up on him. I don't mind it as a gag though (sure makes a nice change from Cilan making it sound like he wants to eat your pokemon).

    I never liked Dedenne, but I'm actually happy that he's a new additional to the group. His immaturity can now replace the Pikachu powering down in the previous seasons. Pikachu acting as a big brother is cute and I hope that doesn't mean he'll have to play baby-sitter like he had for Axew in Unova (as in, Axew keeps getting in trouble and Pikachu as to deal with it). The Pikachu/Dedenne chase was good in where they weren't caught so easily and the rodents gave Team Rocket a harsh time. I personally think Dedenne fits Bonnie better than Clemont, but I wouldn't be too surprised if Clemont was to use Dedenne in future gym battles.

    Ash staying in the background was a little surprising for me, but I didn't mind. Having Ash stray a little and leaving episodes dedicated to other characters was a nice break and I wouldn't mind it if the show can keep it in moderation.

    I can't say I was surprised that Serena STILL hasn't caught up to Ash's group. I'm guessing Serena was in the route just a little bit after Lumiose City, so she should be showing up within an episode or two. I just realized. If Serena is from Vanille Town, then how did she get to Lumiose with two routes and a forest in between in so little time? Not that the anime was ever good at keeping the traveling speed consistent.

    I can't blame Serena being scared of bugs, I mean, these bugs are the size of a car tire. I don't think anyone would be willing to sleep in a forest full of them with the possible chance of them attacking you, especially a fully evolved Vespique. The bee looks like it's the size of a pre-teen. Would you like to be attacked/stung by one?

    I will say this.

    At this moment in time, this episode was adorable.

    Let's make sure these type of episodes aren't shoved down our throats while depriving certain Pokemon of screen time.

    Which is to say, in moderation, cuteness will work for me, but having 1 every 3 episodes approximately or 1 in 5 episodes being glazed with cutness, is not a very good option.

    Writers let's try to keep this cuteness to 1 in every 15-30 episodes. Because while this episode was adorable, shoving these episodes down our throats, is going to try my patience. Especially if in the end in screws over some Pokemon or another.

    The disappointment I had about this episode is that Fletchling didn't use any attacks called out by Ash, would be nice to see what's moveset is before the gym battle, but that's not going to happen.

    This was my least hyped episode however upon watching it, it was actually really enjoyable. This was pure filler material, but they managed to pull it off where the story was fun and unique, the writers clearly implemented the important events of Dedenne being captured as well as Serena getting Fennekin to stop this being a pure filler and i'm glad.

    Yet again, another brilliant XY episode.

    @Dustin
    I Think you are complaining and making too big deal about this episode, personally. Especially with so much 'shoves down out throats' after just one "cute episode".

    Also, anyone know what move Vespiquen used? I would guess it was Power Gem or Ancient Power, but it's hard to tell, plus it was kinda similar to Hidden Power (which I really hope it wasn't).

    It sounded like you were complaining about things that hasn't even happend, but whatever.

    Episode was great imo, and I love Bunnelby's voice, for some reason.

    Thought this episode was rather dull outside the Bonnie scenes. Rather lackluster and they need to show Serena meet the group.

    If it weren't for the 2 captures I'd have no reason to care about this episode. When is Ash going to have his first Kalos gym battle? I'm even going to admit that I just have no more tolerance to cuteness so that's why I didn't much like this episode.

    *when his first Gym Battle* In the next episode.

    Team Rocket was also pretty awesome here, comedic as Always. I especially like how James sounds when using Inkay. And Inkay himself was awesome.

    I agree. If I remember correctly May got acred of a ghost pokemon while riding down with her bike in the beginning. But in all consideration she didn't like pokemon period. So I wouldn't by Serena's little dramatic scene into anything serious.

    As far as Dedenne is concerned, I like it in the anime way more than in the game. In the game it is so annoying with it sucking the energy out of my entire team. Little Raichu reject!

    My ideal battle ever!

    I don't believe anyone can technically complain about something that hasn't happen.

    Whine and moan, maybe. Well actually maybe not since "whine" is complaining.

    Or voicing concerns of the future, sure.

    But complain?

    "express dissatisfaction or annoyance about a state of affairs or an event."

    Sorry that means you can only complain about something that exists.

    So after properly watching the episode, I really liked it. Bonnie's personality is to get all excited when she likes a Pokemon & she is a child, so it didn't bother me one bit. Were only 5 episodes in & if they keep up this running gag they have with Clement, with the gadget's, I am really going to like the series. The way he looked "suspicious" when he used his gadget to heal Dedenne was hilarious & how he had the switch in his hand, Pokemon rarely ever makes me laugh. See these are the kind of running gag's I'd put up with.

    Since Team Rocket are being absent for the 2 gym battle episodes, I guess I would be able to tolerate them more, I mean they were a bit annoying being in every episode from XY Series up until this episode but remember, most evolutions (prior to BW) happened because Team Rocket were punching bags to Ash & friend's Pokemon.

    And yeah James voice seemed a bit weird.xD I liked this episode alot. Idk why but call me crazy, but I think these companions are far better than BW's & this is just the first 5 episodes.

    A very cute episode. Cute Bonnie, cute Dedenne, uber cute.

    And I really liked how James's Inkay actually seemed somewhat competent at first, despite losing. It showed personality and I really enjoyed that.

    I really wish the writers would learn from past mistakes. Just because its new doesn't mean people can't see through it. Many probably disregarded this episode the minute they caught wind of bonnie and denden trying to be the next mijumaru.

    And it's their own damn fault then, because right at this moment, this episode was pretty adorable. Maybe should wait until it becomes a problem instead of jumping ship the moment it happens.

    This episode was pretty decent. The Bonnie and Dedenne scenes were really cute. I give it a 6/10.
