    Did your little sister really ask older women to marry you in every day life? I sure as hell don't consider this kind of behavior normal, personally-- maybe it's also cute, but it can get disturbing.
    Except this isn't real life and instead it's a very lighthearted anime/cartoon for kids, people just take things way to seriously

    Well, I mean, some of us do take things seriously sometimes-- can't blame us. It helps when the show kinda is more realistic to me, personally (then again, this is the show starting a 10 year old boy who never ages, so I can see where you're coming from).

    What he's saying is that there are other ways that she can embarrass her brother in public. Being a cartoon is no excuse. After all, people complain about D&P Rocko (Brock/Takeshi).

    Exactly, man: it doesn't have to be through finding a wife for her slightly older brother, after all.

    It's not creepy to me, but I do find it stupid. Why not just "you like her don't you?" or something else. Or take out the "gag" and make her better character in personality.

    That would work for me-- I gotta agree with Lorde in that I do find it creepy myself, though. I know plenty of little sisters that embarrass their older brothers in real life like Soniman said, sure, but none that I've ever met ask older women if they want to be their brothers' wife lol.

    Trust me lil sisters find a way to embarrass the hell out of you. This "keep gag" reminds me of an scenario where i was with one of my friends playing smash meelee. Her much older sister drove him for the afternoon and even played a couple of matches with me him an my sis...Then the awkard came by... I was paying the pizzaguy(yes we ordered some previously) while I overheard my sis asking my brother sister why she wasnt my girlfriend...exposing that i broke up with the previous one, and thus i needed a new one....Just picture my face at that moment.

    Trust me lil sisters even if they try to do something nice for their bros...will always...AND I MEAN ALWAYS find a way to embarass you.

    Short story I find the keep gag innocent funny and rather cute due to several previous experiences. And dont worry even tough my sis is at college now she still finds ways of embarrassing my *** off from time to time, social networks made that so much easier.

    I disagree. It's really creepy that Bonnie tried to set up her brother with an adult female in this episode. Clemont's pretty young so I don't get why Bonnie wants him to get married. :x

    Yeah, I agree with you completely here...me either. I mean, I know little sisters embarrass their older brothers in real life, of course (similarly, little brothers embarrass their older sisters in real life), but never seen a little girl try to find a wife for her slightly older brother...xD.

    Never seen them pull what Bonnie does before, though-- I'll take your word for it, I guess. xD.

    At least there is a good reason for her getting pulled away then Brock getting pulled by the ear. I think it feel more personal to the charater then a gag that they do multiple times in the episode

    I can agree with that much-- at least the intention is good, even if it is creepy for her to be doing that.

    Brock being pulled by the ear was still funny, though, IMO-- Brock's pervert behavior there was more age-appropriate since he is a teenage guy, but the intention was always bad, so it was funny to see Misty and Max pull his ear to me: Brock getting poison jabbed by Croagunk, however, was not funny at all, IMO.

    More or less because he was being perverted and shouldn't have been trying to romanticize with every pretty lady he sees, really.

    That, I can say, does make sense to me, though-- still, kinda cute and creepy at the same time, IMO.

    The aquarium receptionist's reaction upon Eureka's wife gag is not different from Viola, Jessica, and Lenna. For me, this gag should have a new twist.

    I noticed that fishing rods have conviniently color-coded handle: Blue for Satoshi, pink for Serena, light blue for Citron. Louden's is green.

    Fokko's neat freak attitude costed Serena a chance to catch a Sunnygo.

    I like how tsundere Udeppou suddenly became badass when Dedenne was in danger.

    I'm really surprised people enjoyed this episode when it literally was the filler of all fillers and was completely boring IMO.

    Well some of us can actually understand the dialogue, that helps just a bit.

    Bonnie knows what his brother wants. She's also doing it to stay from the probable future of Clemont inventing his own Clemontic Wife.

    Yes, it can learn Thunderbolt.

    Plus its one of the standard moves for Starmie in the Competitive Game-play and has been like that since the '1st Gen' till now (except '2nd Gen' because there was no Thunderbolt 'TM' during that Gen).

    Also the thing that people forget is that there is a cultural factor playing here.

    I mean it may seem odd that a little girl like Bonnie is looking for a girlfriend/wife for her brother Clemont to the viewers in the West.

    But maybe it isn't that problematic in Japan (the source culture of the anime) and viewers in Japan would actually find Bonnie's attempt as being cute and likeable.

    I agree! I also wonder if maybe there is some sort of French related type of culture they are attempting to exaggerate? Anyway, I find it funny/awkward and don't mind this gag. It is far less annoying then when Brock used to crush on a girl every episode.

    Also, in regards to the Serena hate, I actually enjoyed the scenario on her part, minus Fennekin. Everything about pokemon is new to Serena, and I think people need to realize that she barely has any experience with wild pokemon, which is why I think it made sense for Ash and Clemont to tell her to battle that Corsola. I wish Fennekin fought, but it looks like there will be development in store; hopefully when she has that love rival episode Fennekin does something.

    You know what, last episode I was okay with Fenniken being all diva mode as at least it didn't get in the way of her battling. In this episode she just pissed me off. Really?? Your afraid of getting wet -_-....

    And people wonder why I say she won't evolve. She kind of needs to battle to be able to evolve.

    finally got around to watching the episode and I liked it. I liked the aquarium scene, it was good seeing all those random water pokemon and ash mentioning dawns piplup.

    and my other favorite part was when the old man was kicking team rockets butt on his own and ash and co looked in shock and awe and ash was still surprised when he called out thunderbolt because he stuttered a bit, I thought that was a nice touch.

    But this episode made me like clauncher again, I'm gonna go catch one.

    I feel like they're pushing the fact that she hates getting dirty/difficult battles because they're building up to a point where fennekin gets past that.
    It happened twice because it was an absolute need (both times where serena was in danger) but it will need to actually want to battle on it's own and seeing how this series is becoming with development, I think things will soon change for fennekin.

    It's getting ridic @ this point tbh. Either way it's too early to tell if it'll appear or not.

    Well we might see Misty's Lure in a future episode since it seemed Louden let the group keep those Fishing Rod's he gave for trying to help him catch that Golden Magikarp.
    Well, that's upsetting. Good to know the hope for the lure appearing still remains though.
