It was nice to see Swellow finally learning Aerial Ace.I loved Jessie's performance with Chimecho as she managed to get a perfect score.I knew May was going to win it anyway so that was not not a surprise.
Good lord, Jessie was such a dummy here. Not only did she use James's innocent little Chimecho with abusive force, she even told it to use Double Edge when James told her not to use that attack. Oh well, at least she didn't cheat. :/
I thought that Haruka was super lucky that Wakasyamo's Appeal got a decent score, and Kanata and Boopig's Polock Appeal was so creative. Musashi and Chirean surprised me when they got a perfect score, although Musashi still lost to Haruka. Ohsubame accidentally sending the Rocket-dan flying was hilarious.
May is really coming on as a trainer, she put up a good fight in that battle, well done to her. It was a good episode, Jessie was good, I would like to see her win a contest eventually. I couldn't believe she got maximum points in the first round.
Musashi and Chirean receiving top marks seemed contrived, unless we're meant to think that the Contest judges simply loved how outrageous and avant-garde Musashi's Appeal strategy was. Either way, it was a bizarre moment.
