This episode got a 5.7 rating http://www.anmtvla.com/2014/02/audie...-en-la-tv.html
It's curious XY015 didn't hit the top 10 most watched (the first episode since XY004 that wasn't top 10) maybe Bonnie brings the ratings.
I though this episode was a good one in the dub
(rages that Team Rocket did not appear again) In the past when TR blasted off they would often reappear very quickly and sometimes even within the same episode. But now it seems like they have to behave closer to real world standards and slowly find their way back each time or maybe it is because TR is not familiar with the region or something. At this rate they may lose track of Pikachu all together, unless they create some kind of radar or go to each gym beforehand and wait to try and ambush Ash and company.
Pichu feels like a poke that we should see a lot of but I cannot remember the episode when it got introduced. (beside the movie of course)
A very ordinary filler. There's really no other way to explain it since there was nothing stand-out about this episode. There wasn't an out-there character, no huge battle, no interesting situation.

Well, at least this episode didn't take place during a league arc.

There is a 100% chance it will explode, because Clemont.
Lookie there! A Riolu plushie!
Nothing especially note-worthy in this one. Not in a boring way, just an unremarkable one. I do enjoy Bonnie being the Brock though.
A fine filler. The ending had me laugh a lot, though.
This episode was rather mediocre. It was just not very exciting for me.

Ash's stomach growling made me laugh about of the timing
A nice episode and all the better because Pichu was involved, I just love that little guy. Also, more clemontic gear so that was entertaining too.
Good episode, not outstanding though but it entertained me nonetheless. On to the next one!
Loves every part of pokemon, loves the movies, the anime and every game, so you could call me fan lol.
Apparently i'm a...
Favourite Pokemon: but i like them all
Again I noted the inclusion of a non-Kalos native Pokemon, Lilligant isn't even in the Friend Safari. I'd say this confirms the hypothesis that the XY anime will make full use of the national dex, I was hoping XY would be more like DP.
That's what I'm hoping for, too, since the Kalos dex isn't all that large. It gives more oppritunity for other Pokemon to appear. Like Pichu in this episode for example.
Not a bad episode, just not an exciting one. Bonnie's marriage gag is just as great and not fleshed out like Brock's flirting.
~I just wanna feel that rhythm~
Did CN switch the times I timed recorded the ep and I got Johnny Test instead of Pokemon.

Edit: Strange as this sounds, my favorite part of the episode was when Lena was chit-chatting with her friend on the street. They were talking about gym badges the way real women talk about work, men, and shoes. Little touches like that add a level of believability to this world of lightning mice and fire-breathing chickens.

Was this the Kira Buckland episode? The little girl sounded like Christine Marie Carbonos at times and other times she did not. So not sure who did the girls.
On a side note! PICHU IS SOOO DAMN CUTE!
There's a tyrant king with a reptile heart
And he's started a wave of crime now
From his ship high above he abducted my love
For the fourteenth or fifteenth time now
This filler is unsatisfactory for me. Just there were two kids got swapped with their Pokémon for the sake of introducing Pichu. Also the crying at the end was a little bit exaggerated in my opinion.
Awful episode. Bonnie was pretty unbearable in this one for some reason to me, and on the English dub side of things...good god, was this one just plain bad. Alyson Rosenfeld's "crying" at the end in particular was some of the lousiest, most fake acting I've ever heard in anything, Sarah Natochenny's voice for Ash was so rough and deep at times and it was even more grating than usual, and the woman with the Green Hair sounded more like a man than a woman at several point. Easily one of the worst episodes in the XY Series-- this is what I hope we don't see more of from Bonnie.

Bonnie was adorable in this episode, as she always is. The issue of her constantly feeding Dedenne and Clemont advising her not to. She's certainlly learning to take care of Pokémon skills, and one day she'll be able to use when she becomes a trainer. The same could be said for Serena sincet since she was feeding Fennekin a twig. Bonnie's proposal to Lena was kind of cute. It's nice how she mentioned Clemont's Gym Leader status to try to make Lena go for him. I still find it funny how Bonnie thinks she takes care of Clemont needs someone else to do the same. That's kinda cute in a way.
After a while, the whole switcheroo mess happened. I think that Lyn is the real problem here. I felt bad for Bonnie when she said Dedenne going missing was her fault when it was Lyn who took the wrong bag without checking it first. Then she runs off without telling Lena about her problem when she clearly could have helped her. And later just stares into the sky and doesn’t even notice Dedenne running off. Oh and don’t forget that she wanted to take Dedenne with her for a moment. Luckiliy Lyn realized it won't be fair if she takes Dedenne away from Bonnie. I mean, I know she’s just a little kid and all, but she seems really absentminded. But at the same time, she’s cute. I like how she put the ribbon on Dedenne and liked how they matched. It was nice to see Bonnie sad over Dedenne's being lost and Pichu cheering her up. Meanwhile, Dedenne ran off on its own and Lyn lost sight of it. Geez, How in the world did Dedenne get in that store anyway? In fact, why is Dedenne running off so much? That's something Iris's Axew used to do in XY.... so I don't want writers to give Dedenne the same character trait. Though I must say, I like how they use Pikachu and Dedenne's electricity communication as means of locating each other. With this, it was great that Dedenne got to battle the Beedril. The writers once again reminded us that Dedenne is Clemont's Pokémon.... but I think it would've been better if Bonnie could have commanded Dedenne rather than Clemont.
I liked the scene where Bonnie and Lyn were crying and Clemont and Lena were comforting them. It was nice to see how much they missed their Pokemon and were sorry for not being more attentive. Lyn seemed to like Dedenne a bit too much, even to the point of wanting to keep it for a moment, but at least she realized that it would have been selfish to do something like that. It was also kind of weird to see Dedenne running away so much, even falling asleep inside a store, given how it's been close to Bonnie.
Overall, this episode was pretty good. the parallels between Bonnie and Lyn were interesting. Both of them love Pokemon and will call almost any Pokemon cute and want to take care of one. I really like the fact that Lena ran into that girl and they had the conversation about the Cyllage gym and how they hoped to battle each other again. That was a good detail showing how other characters also challenge gyms and also have rivals, something we rarely get to see with these minor COTDs. The English dub of this episode was good, but the dub music sucked. TPCi really needs to stop overusing their synthesized dub music in the episodes.
