It's called girl power and rooting for the underdogs. Iris was trying to help Bianca and Escavalier because Iris herself knows it's like to have a pokemon that doesn't listen to you. She related to Bianca.Iris is very annoying. She was cheering for Bianca and the professor to win when she's travelling with the other two.
If I were Ash or Cilan, I would have ditched her right there.
I doubt most would considering this a "filler"...One of the more forgettable episodes. Meh only thing it accomplsihed was introducing Escavalier. Meh, a filler for sure.
Bianca got an Escavalier, she's also a rival. From what I have seen, any kind of capture for a main character or a rival/recurring character means most people aren't going to see it as a filler.Most would, because of the fact that it IS a filler. Nothing important happened. That's what a filler is. :|
You just proved gliscor&yanmega's point.Thing said:From what I've seen, that only exists for main characters.
I have to admit I laughed too.It was pretty funny when Cilan just got annoyed and curb-stomped them both.
Well like I mentioned before, Cilan was always the one in this series other than Ash to be more participant. It's to show how bad they messed up the secondary male role(a.k.a Brock) by letting him be on the sidelines most of the time.It was an enjoyable episode, though I wish the writers would write Bianca abit more consistent. They've shown her as a competent battler in episodes, but then it just seems they do a reset on her and have her act like she doesn't know what she's doing. Also i'm tried of seeing Ash & Cilan do the double battles, i'd like to see Iris compete more especially since she's trying to raise Axew but it just seems the writer's like to relegate her to cheerleader mode.
