Episode 8 Review

While we’ve all known that Brenda wanted to be a coordinator since episode one, it’s not until this episode that she tells Ash and Brock. The beginning of this episode saw the evolution of Chrysalux into Glitterfly, continuing the trend of the “Basic Bug” evolving quickly, and just in time for the Contest too. This episode also was Jessie’s return to Pokémon Contests, just like she did back in Hoenn and Sinnoh. This time around she takes on the name Princess Jessileia, which is meant to be an obvious reference to my favorite movies, Star Wars (as in Princess Leia). I chose to have Will use Cryogonal as his choice for the first round because I wanted to use either a Kalos or Unova Pokémon, since neither of the two has ever been seen in Pokémon Contests.

One important thing to address. In the previous episode, there was a Character named Jillian. In this episode, there is a character named Gillian. That was my mistake. I made the first one forgetting that I already had that name set aside for Pokémon Contest MC/Host. I could not think of any other names that ended with -ian like Lillian, Vivian, and Marian, so I just changed the spelling a little bit. Sorry.
