A Fishing Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition (685)

    This was a cool episode. Atleast something is getting done. Bianca makes the group more fun to be around. And with the whole Yamask thing, people need to stop reading into every detail of each episode or they will never be happy. There is no such things as perfect episodes. Never once in these forums, no one has ever posted a 100/100 rank for an episode because something somewhere had to be wrong with it.

    And maybe the Jet Pack were low on Fuel so they had to conserve. Though the writers could've mentioned that.

    As for the Yamask thing, the animators should've edited the Pokedex to pink in that scene so it's be like Bianca was checking and not Ash. As well as delete the frames where Ash was putting his Pokedex away.

    If Team Rocket would've used their Jet Packs right away, they would've gotten away with it ...

    I enjoyed the episode as much as the Japanese version.

    Basculin had a nice dub voice. It's too bad Cilan didn't get to keep it.

    I enjoyed all the Cilan, Bianca, and Team Rocket parts. The Frillish was great too.

    Nice episode for a filler although the competition was boring. They could have made it a little more exciting

    This was supposed to take place in Castelia City, right?
     
  8. Yes, that's why they were exiting the Castelia gym in the beginning of the episode.

    I'm sorry but in my country (I'm French), this episode aired after Archeops In The Modern World and before Movie Time! Zorua in "The Legend of the Pokemon Knight"! So it's confuse me, they still say they were near Nimbasa, so it's a bit weird ...

    -> Is the French channel sucks or they have changed the order of diffusion?

    I loved the Female Frillish in this episode, she was hilarious when she hugged Ash a lot.

    It had been a long time since I watched the Pokemon anime, but I decided to give it a shot a few months ago, and this is the first episode I saw.

    I really enjoyed it. Every character got some time in the spotlight: Cilan's neat capture, Iris's boredom, Ash getting attacked in a kinky tentacle way, Bianca mistaking Team Rocket as rocket scientists XD... It was all good. This is the episode that convinced me to start watching the anime again, so I'm kinda biased, but I do think it was awesome. And Bianca was my favorite character in the games, so I was glad to see her.

    Ok so I re-watched this episode, but this time instead of focusing just on characters/ect. I focused on the rods and reels themselves (Dento has two reels btw.) I realized that Ash/Bianca/Iris all used Spin Cast Reels (or Closed Face reels) which are generally for beginners, while Dento uses more of a medium one (Open Faced Reel). I find it neat that they kind of show Dento's experience through that.

    In the Stunfisk episode Dento shows more of his prowess as a Fishing Sommelier by using a bait casting reel which are for heavy duty fishing. :p

    I think they could have gotten away with hiding the fact that this episode was aired two months out of order if they didn't have Ash scan Yamask. LOL Then again, Ash always did have a tendency to scan pokemon he's met 100s of times. Well, Cilan also debuted the rod he used in what would have been a later episode, and it would have been the first time he declared himself a connoisseur of (insert hobby here), but at least yamask was the most obvious.

    I liked this episode a lot. For one thing, it was much more of a normal episode from the old days, with the twerps stopping a Team Rocket scheme. The only difference is, Team Rocket's not goofy this time. And Bianca is always fun to watch. :D And Cilan is fun when he goes into fanatic mode over a favorite hobby. :D Great fun.

    9/10

    A Fishing Connoisseur in Fishy Competition!

    This episode, along with the TP vs. TR two-parter didn't air on Japan because of the earthqueak. It's interesting that this episode got retconned and aired in between "Archeops In The Mordern World!" and "Movie Time! Zorua in The Legend of the Pokémon Knight!". All the references to Ash and Co. being in Castilia City got removed.

    Anyway, I thought this was a fun episode. It was nice to see Bianca again.....but as usual, she accidently bumped Ash into water. It's good see All of them competing in a fishy fishing competition, but I wasn't expecting Team Rocket to set up the whole competition in other to steal Pokémon from the competitors, they're supposed to deal with something more important....but they're actually acting like their old selves in this episode.

    It's funny when Bianca caught Ash with her fishing rod instead of catching a Water Pokémon from the lake. Cilan being a fishing connoisseur was kinda random, I liked how Cilan showed her how to use the fishing rod by hooking a blue-striped Basculin and catching it. Iris getting bored and grabbing a Basculin her bare hands was unfair, it's funny how James(in disguise) yelled at her for breaking the rules.
    Later a Pokémon grabs onto Bianca's fishing line. With Ash, (I liked how Ash hugged.....I mean grabbed Bianca's waist for helping her) Iris and Cilan help, Bianca finally reels out the Pokémon, which revealed to be a Pink Frillish. It's annoying when that crazy Frillish hugged Ash and the others like that. Geez, Ash should've punched that Frillish in the eye to get rid of it. Oh well, at least Pikachu zapped that stupid Frillish by using Thunderbolt on it.

    I didn't like how the Frillish ended up helping Ash and co. defeating TRio at the end. Geez, what's up with annoying Pokémon helping Ash and Co. in some of the episodes? I don't like it when the writers tries to make an annoying Pokémon look good like they did with Frillish.
    So they left the place, too bad Cilan didn't got the Basculin he caught in the fake fishing competition. Bianca told the group that she's going to Desert Resort for training before leaving them. She's supposed to join Ash and co. for a while, but since this episode didn't air on it's original airdate.....the event got retconned and she ended up leaving the group instead of joining them. :/

  16. This episode reminded me how annoying Basculin's can be in the game.
    Battling, not so ad. But trying to run from them was the annoying part.
     
  17. This was a pretty fun episode and the humor was pretty good. It was disappointing that Cilan didn't get to keep Basculin, but stuff happens. It was an enjoyable episode so that made up for Basculin being released by Frillish.

    I guess Frillish being shown as a mischivous pokemon could be somwhat considered foreshadowing for things to come, but other than that, it was fairly fillerish, but with some good humar and some nice Cilan focus, whhich I liked.

    7/10, overall really decent episode, I would say that a fishing competition should invilve the cast's water pokemon, but it's not exactly like oshawott was lacking screen-time, so it's alright.

    Perhaps one of the funniest episodes in the BW series. Somehow, Frillish's mischievous personality made me smile and I found it funny when Iris tries to catch a Basculin with her hands and gets told off. And I was disappointed that the Trainers didn't get to keep their caught Pokémon, e.g. Cilan didn't get to keep Basculin.

    Bianca was as ditzy as always ha ha but I liked seeing her again at least. Cilan's fishing skills impressed me although I kind of wish he could've kept the Basculin he had found. Frillish binding Ash was funny however. :D
