Why would you be afraid if you helped someone else's pokémon evolve? Seriously.
Yeah, I´m sure Ash would love it if Aoi throws a bunc of thunderstones at Pikachu. He couldn´t be mad
Ooookay, here are my thoughts on this episode:
I like Aoi, I really do. I think she is a fun character and one of the few side characters that wake a side in Ash that interest me ( most of the time, the dude is just plain boring), but this episode wasn´t that special or interesting to me besides her appearance.
It was nice to see her again but I think that the writers could do so much more with her. The Lickylicky plot had a few funny scenes ( when Ash and Aoi tried to distract the "reporters") but didn´t make much sense to me at all to be honest. Maybe it makes sense to disguise a Pokémon as a flying beast by using some helium in the mind of a 10 year old girl but..meh...I wasn´t impressed ^^"
They could have made the story more like a bad b-horror movie, but maybe that was just wishful thinking on my side ^^"
Trigger-happy Meowth was cute, you can´t get enough photos of monster saliva on the ground.
And of course...Lickylicky´s trainer was a big plus as well.
Talking about Lickylicky ( Schlurplek is still a better name ^^) , I liked how it took down Team Rocket. I wanna see a Licky in the league later on. I KNOW it would be awesome!
As Cyber said, a kinda forgettable episode but with a few nice scene mixed into it.
I keep my fingers crossed that Aoi will return someday.
