    Fossil Revival! Ancient Mysterious Bird Archeops!!

    Almost at Nimbasa City, Ash & Co. meet up with Professor Juniper and Fennel. They are there to help revive a fossil; The Plume Fossil. Reviving into Archen, it is a very hard to control Pokémon and is intent upon its desire to fly. Ash & Co. decide to help it out, but get more than they bargained for when the Archen eats a special berry growing around which causes it to evolve...

    The episode starts with Juniper showing them the fossil and then look Lenora gets mentioned. Fennel puts the fossil in the machine and she gets super excited.

    Archen goes crazy and Fennel cradles it as it tires itself out and Juniper captures that on her video camera.

    Team Rocket listen in from a building and Zager appears on a laptop that James has.

    Cilan says that for Archen, it's Sleeping time.

    Its been a fun episode but the cries increasing the size of the seeds don't make that much snese, I was expecting some fragments of Dream Smoke to made that instead.

    Haha Volt Switch still doesn't work right, Emolga is still a *** :p, I don't blame Stunfisk the thing attacked it, poor trollfish.

    Archen's screeching attack makes the seeds grow into big roots.

    Ash brings out Tranquill to help it fly, Iris sends out Emolga, Emolga uses attract but Archen is female.

    Archen pecks Emolga, Emolga uses Volt Switch, Stunfisk comes out and Emolga and Archen pecks Stunfisk and it shocks Archen.

    Archen flying and falling montage is funny, Juniper is watching her videos on her computer and Cilan is filming now.

    Team Rocket are still spying.

    I love Archeops voice.

    Oshawott and Roggerola come out and Team Rocket are battling Ash and co. Team Rocket escape Archeops by some smoke thing.

    Wow, wild Archeops in the air and the main one flies up towards them and guess what, it leaves with them.

    Cilan says Best Wishes and even Tranquill says goodbye, oh wait, no capture for Ash.

    Nice episode, I don't know if this can be considered filler, Team Rocket developement from Seager, Araragi and Makomo appearing, we got to see a diferent pokemon being rotated, Stunfisk appears, Emolga still has problems.

    I was starting to think it would get caught, I wasn't seeing a diferent scenario happening then the Archeops appeared.

    Damn the voice was horrible, horrible or perhaps hilarious instead it was just weird...

    So I'm guessing Scraggy was Juniper'd, oh well, it had its time in the sun.

    What did Zager say at the end, it looked important.

    So Archeops went wild, I thought that that would be the best option for it.

    I'm really not sure why they gave the random Archeops a gender. There didn't seem tp be much point - usually when they reveal a gender, it serves a purpose. This didn't.

    Another average episode. For some reason, there seem to be spells of good episodes, followed by a spell of much weaker ones. We're in the middle of a weak one.

    Or Tepig or Snivy, we will never know and we don't need to know it.

    Grassmen they were just showing Emolga shenanigans, she was trying to control it like she tries with every pokemon, as soon as she saw she couldn't she just used Volt Switch to run.

    Again like I said you guys need to stop thinking the episodes are all going to be awesome, I think the latest episodes plot and chracters have been pretty well made, nothing amazing but well made, I consider episode like Palpitoad capture or the rival battle great, this one are just good.

    Ofc that is a matter of opinion but to me the only bad episode of DP till now, were the Gothielle and possibly the Elgyem one too.

    Team Rocket is finally heading towards a new plot, the professor Seger has something planned out for them.

    Because it's Emolga. All you need to know is its gender was revealed because of Emolga. Damn Emolga taking Snivy's attract schtick.

    I really liked this episode:

    1). Both Tranquill and Roggenrola? Damn. 10 non existent dollars says we'll never find out he rotated out. Good to see Tranquill get some focus in this episode.

    2). Emolga, is just awesome. That Volt Switch thing was pure epic. Sending out Stunfisk while it ran up the tree and laid back, was hilarious. Geez we need more moments like that. Emolga you are one lazy rat.

    3). Did Archen kiss Stunfisk or peck it, I can't tell.

    4). Something is happening with Team Rocket. I can't wait for their next Unova Mission (though I wish we got to see their first one end, but you know).

    5.) Ash didn't catch Archeops. YAY!!!!!

    Things I didn't like:

    1.) No Palpitoad (though instead of Roggenrola I thought he said Gamagaru and my eyes widened but then it turned out to be Dangoro instead). Are we sure that thing exists? I mean this is the third episode in a row for Roggenrola. We have yet to see Palpitoad. Well there's the Zorua episode to hope for.


    That's about it.

    Oh yeah, I also liked that, Tranquill got a lot of focus she was out almost the entire episode, interacted with Archen/Archeops quite a bit and got to battle too.

    Looked to me like it pecked it dman.

    Yeah the writers could have used two water types to do the firefightning but they decided for Roggenrola, I'm starting to think that Palpitoad will indeed be an issue when it comes out.

    Writers could be having Ash use Roggenrola so often because they're planning on evolving it soon (kinda like what they did with Sewaddle).

    Yes, I'm very well of that possibility. Of course that means unless they want Ash with a Gigalith soon, we'll be seeing a lot of Boldore.

    Anyway I'm also a little disappointed that more Pokemon didn't show up, but oh well. Four Pokemon from Ash is decent enough. Though writers next time be fair to Tranquill, "losing" to Team Rocket (well I guess it wasn't losing, but it wasn't winning either), isn't cool. Damn, she needs a win and badly.
