This was a really good episode. Was hoping it would be a Flare intro but still good. Looks like Ash learned from N to put himself in front of danger.
Malamar was no way creepier than faceless robo Pikachu.
Some may call this episode filler but idk.
But Team Rocket's face at the end was great D

Ugghhhh another mind control ep... I'll just forget about this like I do with most fillers...

The episode coyld be filler, unless it leads to a bigger story later. I liked malamar's voice it was creepy. The robo pikachu was also pretty funny. And I liked getting the post episode tram rocket part, it kind of a throwback to OS how we would usually get that in episodes they appeared in.

Even though there is a familiar vibe with the whole mind controlling shenanigans, I liked watching this one. If all Malamars are really this over powered then everyone in Kalos should fear for their lives!
Wow is this a first for the anime? A scary acting Pokemon acting out dastardly plans on his own?!! And no i'm not counting Mewtwo.
It's crazy, but this series continues to surprise me each week.

As Nyrath said in the end of episode, there is a potential that Kojiro's Maaiika will evolve into a Calamanero. I wonder whether it is possible and if Maaiika does evolve, then I think Rocket has got another powerhouse such that Rocket does not lose that easily.
Unless James holds his Inkay upside-down during a battle, I don't see his squid evolving soon.
That Malamar, though? Yes, I think it's related to Team Flare... But that special weapon that we barely heard about made no sense for now.
Is it just me or were those wild Pokemon freaking huge?
It was okay like it usually is. I don't have much interest in the Malamar itself, but I do hope it's connected to Team Flare and that it actually goes somewhere decent.

I think they got it right for the most part. The only thing I can say is that Malamar's dub voice was still creepy but slightly underwhelming. This is NOT a filler in any way, this episode is introducing a new enemy that will appear in future episodes, it basically just created another plot.
Everything is wonderful ALL THE TIME.

Even though it's one of those mind controlling episodes, I'd say it was a pretty nice episode. I like how Pikachu didn't snap out of it (though he was starting to), and saved the day, but it was Clemont's "failed" experiment saved everyone. Had a nice twist to Ash & Pikachu doing it all the time.
I liked how Jessie, James, & Meowth noticed that Inkay could evolve into Malamar. I doubt it'll evolve though, since they were afraid of the fact that it could, they'll try to figure out how it evolves to avoid that. But, I'm probably giving them way too much credit...
Pretty sure we are gonna see that Malamar again, or they wouldn't have let it escape at the end. I'm excited to see how they'll continue with that. It'd be pretty interesting if that was team Flare's doing, but a part of me would like a pokemon that is evil without the help of humans. But ether way this was a pretty nice episode.
Inkay looked way cuter than it normally does at the end of the episode which just adds to the creepiness of it evolving into Malamar. I really hope this becomes a plot point in future (and that the whole episode gets continuation) since TR pokémon really need some more personality.
Back in AG and DP when Musashi was a coordinator, their Pokémon were shown the most personality in my opinion.
Spoiler:- On Hiatus for the Holiday Season:
So i just rewatched the episode and I DID NOT KNOW MALAMAR RUNS IN THE BACKGROUND BEFORE IT GETS CLEMONT AND BONNIE! THAT FREAKED ME OUT!
Friends are family you choose
This episode was just plain strange...
But it was different and I liked it. I had a completely different vibe to other mind control episodes and it was full of malice and mystery.
It was also unusual that the Pokémon was the main antagonist and wasn't a servant of a human (possibly as someone said earlier) and the way it ended has gave me hope that it will lead to something in the future. It could relate to team flare (also someone said earlier) but I just hope that it doesn't lead to nothing as that would annoy me.
Final word for Pikachu. I did think at first that Ash was not going to get through to Pikachu at all but it prevailed slightly showing that their special bond is still there but as Robopika actually saved Pikachu it was a welcome change to Ash shouting his way through it.
A strange episode but a good one. 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
A fine episode. The episode was a bit creepy, but this episode seems like it's the start of an unknown plot that Team Flare could be plotting. That Malamar might be a recurring Pokémon here.
