Fishing Sommelier – Dento Appears!
Alex: I really don’t see why this episode didn’t air in the Earthquake/Tsunami fuss. It’s just a harmless, fun filler about a fishing contest where Dento and Belle go wild like always. That said, this episode really confirmed my position on Dento: He’s the best companion Satoshi’s had so far. He’s erratic, he’s intellectual, funny, and he knows what he’s doing. The man of many talents, huh…He’s a detective, a fisherman, a gym leader, a Pokemon Sommelier, a chef, and god only knows what else >_> There should be more characters like him, he really brightens up the screen.
I also like Belle, surpisingly. Sure, she may be your standard airhead at first glance, but she’s got the personality of an overexcited youth who finally gets to start their journey. I actually think i’d be a little bit like her when i’d first start my Pokemon Journey, to be honest…it’s interesting how much thought has gone into the characters from behind the scenes. Also, Belle mentioned her family problems. Does that mean that we’ll have that touchingly beautiful moment from the game animated, where her father turns up to try to stop her from continuing, and Elisa, the gym leader, talks about growing up with Pokemon..? I hope so~:3
Anyway, thanks to Envy, I learnt that the Team Plasma episodes aren’t gonna be on American TV. I obviously wont give up hope until they don’t show up in TV guides, but…man, that’s just really frustrating. It must be some serious content…but judging from this episode, it might just be because they’re teasing everyone and are gonna release them as DVD specials or whatever. Siiighh.
