    Leave it to Serena! Rampaging Rhyhorn Race!

    Heading back towards Lumiose City, Ash & Co. arrive in a small village where a special competition takes place, the Rhyhorn Race. After learning that the competition is open to anybody, Ash decides to enter. Serena takes the opportunity, based on the training with her mother, to be Ash's coach in the race. However, when the day of the race comes, Ash soon learns that the race will be trickier than he imagined when Team Rocket appears half way through the course...

    The episode starts with a recap of the previous episode.

    Serena opens up the town map and tells them where she previously traveled, or where they should travel next.

    They then all run off to the next destination.

    Serena then shows Ash a cloth and Ash is confused.

    Serena then explains the meaning behind the cloth and the flashback starts.

    Serena as a kid is a forest and is scared. A Poliwag passes her.

    Ash then comes across Serena and brings out the cloth, before tying it around her saw knee.

    Ash then lends his hand out, to help her up and they then walk of together, with Ash still holding her hand.

    Ash now remembers Serena from when he was kid.

    Suddenly, a group of Rhyhorn are running towards them, so they moves out of the way.

    Ash uses his Pokedex on Rhyhorn, before Officer Jenny comes on her motorcycle and tells gives them a warning about the Rhyhorn.

    Ash tries practices getting on a Rhyhorn, but he keeps falling off.

    Serena then gets on the Rhyhorn, to help show Ash how it should be done.

    Serena gets on, but soon gets thrown off and gets surrounded by all the Rhyhorn at the ranch and they are licking her.

    Bonnie then pats one of the Rhyhorn.

    Serena has some flashbacks to when her mother trained her.

    So, we now have 2 navigators in the group.

    The writers are really using the past relationship between Ash and Serena.

    So Ash finally remembered Serena from his childhood? Great, it's about time!

    Ash used Pokédex on Rhyhorn? Ugh, not again....!

    That blush, that jumpsuit, that licking, that everything!

    I found it funny that the first one to face Serena's mom when she contacts her was not Serena but Ash. That embarrassment at being praised by Ash for teaching him how to handle a Rhyhorn in front of her mother.
    Also, cookies are a sign of love! That Serena's face when Bonnie starts complaining about wanting cookies. Didn't see much of the battle, but Serena seems proud of participating in her first Pokemon battle with Fennekin against Team Rocket. Too bad the race got cancelled, I think.

    Overall a good character building episode.

    After Seeing this episode, I think it's about time the writers brought some romance in the anime. It's nice to see Serena making Cookies for Ash, I liked at his reaction to her cookies.

    So......did Serena mention anything about her goal in this episode?

    A fellow member kindly talked to me about this just now and I feel it might be useful to reiterate my answer here:

    Please try to keep the shipping talk out of here, be it positive or negative or neither. There's nothing wrong with devoting a part of your review to remarks on how cute/annoying/whatever the interactions between two characters were, but direct your feelings on the shipping/crush/canon/fanon/marriage/pancakes dimension of them to the Shippers forum. Just like people who hate or don't give a crap about your ship are not allowed in the shipping subforum, non-shippers deserve some peace here and should be allowed to freely discuss the ep without seeing fangasms (or whatever the opposite of it is...) in every second post.

    Thanks for reading ^_^

    EDIT: ...Did I just kill the thread?

    Everlasting Bright but faded.

    SERENA IS COOKING! :D
    Anyway, nice episode, especially for us, fellow AmourShippers. Serena needed screen-time and she got it. The group is so dynamic, I think this serie will be the best!
    I may do my full review later, but today I feel lazy.

    Serena was pretty adorable here, but it's too bad it seems like she won't ever be making wisecracks from those first few episodes with her mom.
