    I hope it's someone despicably awesome like Hunter J. Although it's probably just some grunts.

    Sephora yes I'm back

    I wonder if this'll be a capture episode or just a standard filler. I hope it is the former and Serena catches it (no matter how predictable that would've been). It just suits her so much imo

    There is no way a scatterbug will ever fetch enough money for someone like J to spend time on capturing.

    I could see Serena getting a Scatterbug. Not sure if it'll happen here though...

    Of the upcoming episodes, Serena will either catch Scatterbug or Espurr.

    Eek @ people being certain that a capture must happen here. I'm sorry, but I can't see Scatterbug or Spewpa being captured; at best Ash and friends will save them and bond with them in the process, but that's all I can see happening. This doesn't sound like an interesting episode to me anyway; I'm not sure why poachers would want to catch Scatterbug and Spewpa of all Pokemon. I mean they can't be that rare or valuable. :x

    They are secretly just trying to get all the Vivillon patterns to show off to their friends.

    Serena has yet to have a single Pokemon outside of her starter.

    By this episode:

    Ash: 3
    Clemont: 3
    Serena: 1

    Why is the distribution of Pokemon so horrible? Don't you think Serena should be getting a Pokemon soon?

    People complained about the other male being shafted by the girl, now they are shafting the girl in favor of the other dude.

    I don't see one happening here necessarily. Just that I think she will get one down the road. If there was a capture here, then it would've made sense for it to be included in the opening so she probably won't get a pokemon anytime soon unfortunately.

    You can never make everyone happy, I'm afraid.

    Cilan still got a 2nd Pokemon by the 10th episode.

    Serena got Fennekin in the 4th episode, its her only Pokemon, she needs another Pokemon.

    KumaPanda Psyduck is cute <3

    Why would a pokemon hunter want to catch the Spewda line? They're common and they're hardly used in battle. Asides from that, I wonder if Serena will give a chance of showing us her battling skills while going after the hunter.

    A really really hardcore collector who is mad at Gamefreak that they can't get every Vivillon form easily


    Because someone hired him to catch a bunch of poison type Pokémon

    It really does boggle my mind, although I suppose the poacher could be trying to evolve them to sell all the different patterned Vivillon or something. I suppose there could be a market for them. I don't know. I often wondered why that poacher from early AG even bothered to hunt Ekans and Koffing. It just seemed like a waste of time and I'm getting the same vibes from this episode.

    1rkhachatryan Call me Robert guys

    I'm guessing someone who is a Vivillion Collector(the different forms), hired these guys to get as many of them as possible so he can get the different forms.

    I could see Serena bonding with a Scatterbug here though. Other then that, I can't see much else happening here.

    A client could have asked for all the different forms of Vivillon and that's why a person like J would be interested in capturing all those bugs. They probably have a good money value.

    ...I don't see this being the case, though.

    Pokemon Hunters? Perhaps a chance for new TR Pokemon? Or rather a chance for more vicious antagonists to complement the regional villainous team? Time will tell.

    I really hope its a bad a** hunter as well who want different patterned Vivilion. And please do not give SERENA one of these.
