    So this episode is a great example of just everything that is wrong with the BW anime. So Iris finally get's an episode and they make it a revenge episode, cause Iris is your typical a petty & jealous girl troupe, She goes around calling other people kids and yet as demonstrated in this episode she's willing to do whatever it takes to get petty revenge on Moira and her friends, even if that means dragging Ash and Cilan along and having them crossdress. Unfortunately the writers will keep having Iris say her trade mark linewith out ever bringing up this episode and shutting her up. This episode is just as pointless and badly written as the first time Ash crossdressed. I will give kudos to the animator's for making Ash & Iris look cute in their dresses.

    Honestly I find it hard to believe. Also, it's pretty depressing (at least to me)

    Iris's kid comments are nothing a joke and gag.

    So, Iris dragging them into a crossdressing competition against antagonistic girls is a demonic sin? Okay, good to know.

    The thing is I was rewatching a few of the BW gym battles and [people say he has no skills but he does in his battles with Skyla,Clay,Brycen and Roxie. I feel like the whole reset thing lasted from BW 1 to maybe before Lenora

    I have to agree about Iris. I was disappointed by her behavior in this episode. It's just that things were finally getting to the point where people stopped complaining about her constant teasing and such, and then the writers made her out to be vengeful, which I really disliked. And like I said before, I didn't care enough about those snobby girls to really enjoy Iris's revenge, so the whole thing seemed like a waste of time.

    I will say this though: I loved Cilan's high-pitched voice. It was actually funny, unlike Ash's voice which sounded almost the same as his normal voice. Way to get into character, Miss Natochenny.

    He's not bad at all in BW. The Elesa thing was more of the case of Ash being overconfident but he still did well in that battle. And with Roxie, I didn't see Ash using 6 Pokémon to beat her as Ash being weak. I saw it as Roxie being really strong. He also made it far in every BW tournament.

    Iris being vengeful was supposed to be played for comedy and you know what, I found it funny.

    Exactly, but I'm not gonna waste my breath if they can't see that. I fail to see how Iris was the catty, vindictive person in all of this. But eh I digress.

    Well I'm sorry, but I didn't think it was funny. Her attitude was scandalous and there were times when she was no better than the girls she despised. I spend so much time defending Iris, but this episode made all of that pointless since some people still believe that she's a hypocrite for acting like a kid when she teases Ash about that all the time. I don't even count this as a development episode for her because the opposite occurred; she took a huge leap back and it really sucks in my opinion. Iris deserved better.

    Difference of opinion, your idea of humor won't always be the same as others. The whole idea was to beat them at their own game, but Iris hardly seemed despicable like them. Sure she was very motivated, but that's always been her character. So yeah, not a step back for Iris to me, just another entertaining episode.

    Finally got to see the dub episode. How could she say Tsutarja was unattractive without bursting into flames? xD Anyways, what Iris did was really smart with Leaf Storm. She handled Tsutarja really well.

    If Ash does leave the show, he better win a League before he leaves. It would really upset me if he doesn't.

    This is one of the few times i wanted the enemy COTD to win. Sadly it didn't happen. Moira is so much more beatuiful than all of them.

    Except cilan. He wears that dress like a boss.

    OMG watched one second of the dub.

    I gotta hand it to Jason for this. Holy crap, it was amusing for him to be hitting higher notes than AshLEY.

    Hmm... ASHley... That sounds familier... Anyway why does Ash have no recollection of Rosarade!? He only encountered it like a hundred times in Sinnoh! It's obvious that the writers must figure that no one who watched the Sinnoh Saga watches the current Unova Saga! And what's with (Adventures in Unova) what is this the beginning? They already had like a hundred already! Now if it said (NEW Adventures in Unova) then it be a bit more understandable. One more thing! If your going to feature Ash's reserve Pokemon in the title sequence they better actually show up at some point this season! And I don't like how Cinncino was advertised... Tail slap hit's at least twice!
     
  17. Yeah. Jason's Cilan is pretty good. :)

    It should sound familiar, actually. It's the same pseudonym Ash used when trying to get into Erika's Gym in Celadon City. ;)

    They have to cater to people who haven't seen the show before considering it's made for kids. And Ash does know Roserade, he just happens to be the only one with a Pokédex, so he has to do all the scanning. If he doesn't explicitly say out loud that he doesn't know the Pokémon, then he's probably scanning it for the audience or Iris.

    Ironic since the Pokedex info can be irrelevant to the story at hand which makes it kinda... useless in a way.

    One more crossdressing episode. It never gets old.
