Scraggy and the Demanding Gothita (716)


Koharu challenging Satoshi to a battle to determine Zuruggu's fate was very unfair. Satoshi clearly didn't want to trade with her, although I wonder what would've happened if he had done the trade. Koharu's Gothimu was selfish and spoiled however, and I liked watching Pokabu get a win against Vulgina.
Normally I find Axew upsetting, but his friendship with Scraggy made me love him. Scraggy's innocent look and Snivy made this episode for me. And to think I was scared she'd lose her personality the more she traveled with Ash. Oh, and I wouldn't mind Katherine showing up in more episodes with an evolved Gothita. ;)


Axew and Scraggy playing with each other was so cute. Also I liked how creepy Gothita sounded in Axew's nightmare. Otherwise this was quite mediocre episode.


Gothita seemed fickle and naughty, so I was relieved when Ash declined to trade with her owner. This filler had funny moments at least, so it was one of BW's better installments.


Given how conceited Koharu's Gothimu seemed, I wouldn't have minded if she had joined the Best Wishes cast somehow, even if not via trade. She just seemed so different from the cast's Pokemon, and I might've enjoyed watching her become a troublemaker.
I thought that this was a pretty good episode. I really liked the Axew and Scraggy bonding moments and training session. That Gothita was pretty spoiled from the start with asking Katharine to trade away one of her Pokemon for Scraggy. She didn't even seem to mind the idea of losing one of her Pokemon. Mandibuzz looked pretty strong with Dark Pulse and Brave Bird.

This episode was one of those fillers that didn't need to exist because all it did was bring drama between Scraggy and Axew and Gothita went from being a cute darling little pokemon to being a complete Jessibelle.
