Popplio, Do Your Balloonest!

The Pokémon School is holding a special Fishing competition from the top of Poké Ride Pokémon, with Lana teaching how it is done. As Ash lacks a fishing rod, Lana and he head to her house to pick one up for him to borrow. Bonding, they soon become better friends but when time comes for the fishing competition, a mysterious shadow appears with its eyes set on the Water-type Pokémon...

Lana's Voiceactor is literally honey to my ears.

Rotom isnt being nearly as bad either

Pretty sure I heard some form of shipping going on lol

I'm liking this episode already. Just wish TR wasn't as prevalent.

Thank you Mallow and Ash for telling Rotom to shut up!

Well at least they got rid of the blasting off BS lol.

I liked this episode, if only cuz it made me like Popplio a little more. Plus Rowlet is amazing as usual <3!!!

I'm happy they gave Popplio some sort of backstory.

That was neat.

Was probably the most intense fishing sequence in Pokemon (don't recall any others being quite as active)

EDIT: I need this as an avatar or signature.

Lana's trending on JP Twitter apparently.

Did anyone else catch Lillie's Clefairy lure?

Boring episode mainly full of slapstick humour. But it was nice to see Popplio using his snot bubbles to deflect Mimikyu's Shadow Ball and Ash with Pikachu and Rowlet playing a major part in fending off Team Rocket.

Kanto is love. Kanto is life.
1. It seems Ash is fueling more Aureliashipping than Lillie.

2. If James catch that Bewear: TR will finally become OP.
Oh Lana x Ash is starting to fuel.
Rotomdex wasn't even annoying in this episode, TBH. He was only annoying in SM3 and SM4.

I love that little bastard. :] Gotta question what Team Skull were actually doing to it when Lana saved it...

I don't think the Bewear Blast-Off is going to get old for me if they can continue to do ones like that, I was almost in tears OML. The random Slowpoke was... oddly amusing haha. Rowlet's just chilling not caring at all.

Like I hoped/expected would happen Rotomdex wasn't as obnoxious as the previous episodes.

I hope Ash gets an Electrum-Z(the one he had is shattered) before James catches Bewear. Then TR won't seem that much OP

Mimikyu: gets stronger because of Pikachu.
Bewear : runs on water
Also, maybe TR gets Z Crystals too. ( from Giovanni). Too much OP.Likely God tier level.

Also nice to note that Ash was smart enough not to go in head long with a Thunderbolt to save the Ride Pokémon, but rather use Iron Tail to cut the netting. Of course, that was when they above those sharp rocks, but Popplio took care of that.

Ash was literally getting smacked around in this episode. From Popplio to Magikarp to Milotic, I was surprised he wasn't asking for a medic by the end of this episode.

Oh, and Lana was absolutely lovely in this episode. She's become one of my favorite Trial Captains in the games, and she's a delight to listen to. Not to mention, the moment her sisters asked if Ash was her boyfriend was so funny. Pikachu bailed her outta that one though...

I don't think TR will get a Z-move. That's too much for much for them in my opinion.

1. cool to see how lana rescued popplio from team skull and just more of her in general
2. lillie's fear of touching pokemon is still hilarious
3. i had a feeling lana's sisters would ask if ash was her boyfriend lmao

and for all those people who complained about rotomdex being annoying, it seems that even ash and mallow agree lmao. liked the split screen thing that went on there when they were like "you already said, we know!"

I thought it was pretty clever Ash using Rotom as a stepping stone for Iron Tail.

How in the hell did that Slowpoke hook a Sharpedo? That was funny. I really enjoyed this episode. Excellent use of slapstick humor. I think Team Rocket will be saying "We're being carried off again" in the English dub every time Bewear carries them off.
