    Default The Bamboozling Forest! (814)

    A Chase Through the Bamboo Grove! Pancham & Pangoro!!

    Heading towards the next city, Ash & Co. stop off to have some food, but while eating, two Pancham suddenly appear and begin to eat all of the food. While they are trying to sort it out, Team Rocket appear and manage to capture everyone, and fly off. However, as Team Rocket are flying off, they argue which causes them to crash causing everyone to be separated, and to top things off, Meowth lands on a Pangoro, angering it. Will everyone meet up again?

    The episode starts with Team Rocket spying on Ash and co. as they have lunch in forest clearing.

    Froakie hears a rustling in some bushes and responds by throwing his foam/bubbles at the bush.

    Two Pancham come out and then Ash helps them out by wiping their eyes of the foam.

    James learns about Pancham on his holographic Pokedex thing and then Ash uses his Pokedex on Pancham too.

    Clemont brings out another invention, which Ash is excited for.

    I think it's a Pokemon translator.

    Team Rocket capture the starters and Pikachu in a net that hangs under their Meowth Balloon.

    Team Rocket have a fight over something and it causes the starters to fall off from the balloon and land in nearby bamboo forest.

    Meowth is there too and he runs into a Pangoro.

    Pikachu and Froakie come out of the water and then find Chespin, upside down in the ground, so they pull him out.

    They remember that they have to find Fennekin.

    Meowth is stuck up in a tree near them and asks for their help.

    Chespin uses Pin Missile to get him down.

    Pikachu zaps Meowth and Meowth gets angry.

    Meowth hatches a plan that involves the angry Pangoro that he encountered before.

    Dare Da? Pancham.

    Jessie and James are walking through the bamboo forest and then the two Pancham from earlier come out from some bushes nearby them.

    James gets Inkay to attack them and then the Pangoro from earlier appears behind them and sends them blasting off.

    The lost Pokemon then run into Fennekin and Froakie cleans Fennekin's tail, which makes it shiny and which makes Fennekin very happy.

    Jessie and James are walking around again and come across a Pumpkaboo that comes out of the ground.

    James looks up some information on it and then Jessie decides to throw a Pokeball at it, which results in a capture that leaves James shocked and Jessie happy.

    One of the Pancham lead Ash and co. and the lost Pokemon to where the other Pancham and Pangoro is, with Team Rocket.

    Ash and co. run into Team Rocket and the captured Pokemon and then Jessie sends out her newly caught Pumpkaboo.

    Pumpkaboo uses Leech Seed on Ash and co.'s Pokemon and then Shadow Ball.

    Pangoro soon breaks out of the rope that was wrapped around it and I think it sent Team Rocket off flying.

    Ash and co. say goodbye to the Pokemon as the sun sets and then realises something. His stomach then grows.

    To be continued.

    Episode focused on Pikachu!? Very rare.

    The Pancham has appeared, and the one scanning it is Serena(!)

    Pancham try to eat the food of Chespin. The Pancham looks a bit evil.

    Serena is getting relationship with the Pancham. But they are eating the food for themself and the rest.

    Team Rocket catched Piakchu and the starters.

    They fall off and the starters fall with Team Rocket.

    Piakchu encounter Froakie, now encounter Chespin.

    Chespin has used a Grass-attack. I don't know what attack was. Looks like Razor Leaf but it can't be.

    Sonansu is doing the Dare da? of course, Sonans don't talk.

    Team Rocket (minus Mewoth) encounter Pancham. Pangoro appears and uses Hammer Arm on team Rocket.

    Pikachu and co. with meowth encounters Fennekin but Fennekin is scared. And Forakie gives a message to Fennekin.
    Pumpkaboo appears from Team Ropcket and Jessie gets Pumpkaboo.

    The gang encounter Pangoro and the rest of the pokemon captured by Team Rocket.
    One of the pancham are following the gang. meowth separates for them and reunites with TR. They prepare their plan.

    Chespin learns Vine Whip (and doesn't een require translation). TR got Pancham (one of them) and Pangoro

    Punmpkaboo appears and uses Grass Knot ona l the pokemon

    Pupkaboo uses Shadow Ball. Pangoro uses Hammer Arm. Team Rocket blast off.

    The panogor gets saved from these two Pancham.

    And what Ash has said at the end?

    So, Jessie caught a Pumpkaboo.

    Also seems like Serena can't be a Beautician since Ash's Froakie can do it much better.

    Hilarious subversion of random bear pokemon suddenly appears to wreck everyone's ****, to Chespin. Funny how Jessie caught Pumpkaboo in one shot like James. Also, many previews, includes ninja Froakie chasing Frogadier up on trees, double team Froakie, Diantha, and Ash being shocked by what appears to be Pikachu being possessed.

    But holy **** episode highlight! DAT BASED ASH! DEM POKEMON PROTECTING ASH! There's no stopping this train.

    I gotta say, I was expecting Jessie to catch something in this episode, but I was expecting her to catch Pancham, and Ash to catch Pumpkaboo. Was not expecting this at all.

    It seemed more that Fennekin's tail was frizzled out and it became concerned about instead of being scared. Froakie uses her frubbles as if it was conditioner on its tail to make it shine again.

    we kinda knew Jessie was getting Pumpkaboo due to a recent scan of future episodes, specifically details of the episode with Inkay's evo in it.

    So it was leech seed? Intresting way of using it, I was sure it'd be forest curse.

    Pumpkaboo can't even learn that. It is the signature move of Phantump line.

    TR captures are becoming less creative lately. I wonder why they even mind showing the capture.

    Really? Must have missed that. Still, this does screw with my prediction of Ash getting Pumpkaboo, Serena getting Phantump, and then they trade so Serena gets Gourgeist and Ash gets Trevenant...

    And Forest's Curse is the signature move of the Phantump line. Pumpkaboo's signature move is Trick-Or-Treat.

    I can't begin to express just how happy I am regarding Jessie's capture of Pumpkaboo, since now I can be fairly certain that the awful thing won't end up with Ash!

    The rest of the episode wasn't bad either, I quite like it when the Pokemon have to look out for themselves, it's interesting to see how their personalities develop.

    At first I thought it would be filler episode, but this episode turned out to be non-filler. Jessie caught a Pumpkaboo.

    I like how the title card had Pikachu on it this time instead of a human character. I guess they showcase the pokemon/character who the episode will focus on then which is nice.

    thought the episode was pretty uninteresting overall, I didn't really like much about it. The Pancham were cute, that nice callback to Dedenne/Pikachu's electricity communication was cool and seeing Dedenne be useful, seeing Chespin get some small focus and reveal Vine Whip, Froakie's personality moments were fun. I guess seeing all the mascots play interference for Ash during his hero moment too. Everything else just felt so boring/standard, I disliked Pumpkaboo's capture, it felt so sudden and happening for happen sake unlike with Inkay whose capture I liked.

    Pumpkaboo didn't really look impressive at all to me unlike with Inkay. Pikachu and Ash getting conned by Meowth for the millionth time continues to be uninteresting to me. The character interactions from the XY Quartet felt really lacking. Team Rocket really got on my nerves this episode, especially their little petty squabble that lead to them losing their stolen Pokemon, their constant moments of stupidity humor and overall I really just think they should have not been here at all but that would require a full episode rewrite given this episode hinges on them vainly attempting to steal the mascots. Surely a good number of those Rocket moments and mascots dicking around could have been axed for a decent Pumpkaboo intro battle, no? Fennekin could have used a victory.

    A pretty weak episode overall and the first XY episode I feel a good amount of apathy toward.

    This better not be starting some trend of Team Rocket being the catalyst for every episode's plot because god did I dislike them here. And not only was I pissed that Pumpkaboo when to Jessie, but they didn't even bother with the capture…then again that's always bee the case for Jessie, what a waste. And of course the recycled Mewoth tricks the the gang gag that has been played out for years.

    Highlights of the episode include Fennekin doing stuff and Ash's big hero moment. Otherwise meh episode.

    When the witte bubble stuff thrown by Froakie was on the Panchams, they almost looked faceless xD
    And Froakie looks like some sort of ninja with all those bubbles around his face.
    The Dare da was done by Wobbufet this time.
    And kids. Froakie bubbles are very handy to make your tail pretty. Is there something this stuff can't do?

    The episode was, mwa fine, but I've expected better to be honest.

    The shots of that special makes me curious. I have the idea that the battle gateau gets a role there, looking to the gymleaders clothes.

    And TR is back to annoying as **** -_-....seriously if not for Pumpkaboo using Leech Seed in a smart way, I would have skipped past their parts -_-...

    Otherwise, I liked the pokemon interactions with each other.

    Ash kind of annoyed me though, I mean how do you forget you have a bird at the end there?? He could of had Fletchling take the plant to Pangoro.

    Well, we all know that sometimes, Ash acts first before thinking... so...
    I liked the episodes so far, Clemont's experiment blowing up thanks to misfixation and such... instead of ruining everything
    However, I do feel that Team Rocket has to REALLY succeed in their plans... this is an example of a near perfect plan (just like previous episodes)
    Anyone finding the pattern on how the character focus affects the flow of the episode? A bit surprised they had Pikachu this time on the screen!

    Pancham! Pancham! And more Pancham! I love Pancham! I love saying Pancham! I love typing the name Pancham!

    As for the episode, for a episode about Pancham, they really didn't stand out all that much. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Pancham duo and I was positively tickled that is was Serena who scanned the Panchams with her Pokedex (finally putting it to use) but I think I enjoyed the Starters being lost more as we got to see their personalities here. I loved Froakie in this episode. The water frog is just too cool a Pokemon and I enjoy seeing it in this episode. We got to see a bit of Fennekin's personality, I guess she didn't want anyone seeing her messed up tail. Yes I refer to Fennekin as a girl as of now. Froakie comes to Fennekin's rescue and our second ship of the season is born. Ironic considering who their trainers are. Chespin was more or less the same but it was still enjoyable. My main problem with this episode was there was just too much Team Rocket. I'm sorry, but I could have used less of them here as they were not as entertaining as last episode. I didn't realize they were going to be heavily in this episode, but I should have seen it coming.

    The group interaction remains very well. I finally got to see Serena and Clemont strike up a conversation. Pancham and Pangoro were awesome. It was a twist to see Pangoro like lose it's fighting power when it lost it's leaf thing, but that was all part of the episode. Team Rocket got Pumpkaboo and it was pretty powerful but so are all of TR's Pokemon when they debut, but to be fair Inkay has been a mini wrecking ball so maybe Pumpkaboo will be as well. The ending was...I'll admit humorous, I did get a chuckle at main character hunger. It has it's moments and this one was done in a funny way. Overall not my fave episode but I enjoyed it and Pancham.

    Seriously Serena, why didn't you catch one? When the group lost their Pokemon, Ash, Clemont, and even Bonnie had at least one Pokemon left, Serena was at everyone elses mercy. Get a second Pokemon. Well at least they showed us Fennekin chomping on the Braxien twig. Please let that be foreshadowing.
    Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham!

    It was an okay episode and I found it amusing at times. Some highlights:
    - When Inkay sprays Pangoro in the face and TR panics in the background; this scene was funny.
    - Fennekin and her tail being dirty and Froakie cleaning it for her. I also love her little displays of personality such as when she is suspicious about why Meowth was with them and when she begins chewing on a twig.
    - How Pangoro becomes upset when it's twig/leaf is burnt and later goes into depression lol
    - When Froakie falls in the water and begins swimming like a frog and later when it hears someone (not knowing it was Pikachu) and hides in it's frubble. I just love the attention to detail for Froakie's characteristics.
    - Jessie catching Pumpkaboo. I predicted she would get one way before it was ever hinted she would so I am glad my predication came true. Even though it's capture was very quick, I didn't mind because I was more into the Pancham/Pangoro than Pumpkaboo anyway.
    - I think Pancham looks so cute when it is tied up haha
    - Leech Seed's animation is very well done
    - I didn't know that Pumpkaboo lights up from the two circles, so I thought that was a nice touch (pumpkin = lighting up)
    - Satoshi is so determined to put the twig/leaf in Pangoro's mouth.

    I am starting to get irritated with TR recently though, so I hope that they are not catalysts for another incident/episode. A new plot instead of a recycled one would've made the episode so much better. I like how we got to know a little bit more about the pokemon (mainly Fennekin) this episode so that was okay.

    This season seems to have a big emphasis placed on bonds of people and pokemon. So im sure didnt call yayakoma because it was to show how hard the pokemon fought in order to cover Ash's latest reckless endeavor. That is what i believe tho

    Really like the Pokemon's interactions with each other. Good episode, a bit filler-esque and not the best, but I still enjoyed watching it. Now gotta wait until Monday for the subs
