    IIRC, Jynx's face changed to violet here because some lady complained that Jynx's black face was racist. :/

    I was a fan of the shipping triangle. Maybe it's just the irony of how easy it would be to give May her own version of Misty's infamous "someone else" line here, but it does create a refreshing reason for rivalry.

    Kinagi Town resembled an ordinary beach town, which was a shame given what it looks like in the games. I liked Eriko and Toshiki though, especially Eriko's jealousy when she thought Haruka liked Toshiki. Nyasu getting motivated to help Musashi in the Contest due to a Persian was funny, and I thought Rougela had the best Appeal.

    I heard something similar a while back and I think 4Kids or whoever was in charge of editing Jynx's face in this episode did a good job, but I personally didn't find its original face racist since it's just a pokemon. To me the controversy seemed overblown.

    It was, and it overshadowed an otherwise good Contest arc.

    I also laughed so hard when Jessie decided to rely on Meowth, mainly because he was such a bad choice. :p

    In hindsight, Eriko's whole obsession with Toshiki was slightly unnerving since she seemed too young to be fawning over a boy, especially one who didn't even seem to have romantic feelings for her to begin with.

    I really liked the bickering between May and Erica and how Erica was thinking that May was seducing Joshua. But they soon got together and became friends, which I really liked.

    I would've liked if Eriko had kept her bad impression of Haruka even after the Contest, although I guess that might've made her into Harley 2.0.
     
  9. Joshua and Erika wanting to be the first couple to win a Pokemon Contest as a duo was silly, but I do wonder if Erika had considered if that would be acceptable with the judges and the audience. Oh and once again Ash spent his time outside training Snorunt all while May was competing, but least this time it was just during the preliminaries.
