Definitely one of the best episodes this season. This episode had so much win packed into it, I don't even know where to start :
1) gorgeous animation. Man, how can they manage to make such nice animation every week?
2) lots of funny moments, along with a lot of action scenes... it's really dynamic.
3) one of the main character gets a new Pokémon. I really like when that happens. Especially when the said Pokémon is that Emonga. And I just love how mischievous she can be... looks like it's going to be quite lively with her around.
4) love Bel's character too. Great voice actor (not some sort of 8-year old idol or something), too. You just to love how she overdo everything, how she mimic the attacks when she ordres her Pokémon to use one (especially that 'Tickle' one, it had me giggle a lot). So, I'm really looking forward to her next appearances in the following episodes.
That being said, it looks like the next episode is going to be as great as this one... especially since we'll get to see Mrs Smug, aka Starja. Her + Emonga in the same episode... sounds promising!
Only thing that sorta of "bothered" me... where's that big forest supposed to be? There's simply no forest North of Hiun City. Guess they're not going for a faithful representation of Unova in the anime.
