I do like this little thing they put at the end of the Gym battle with Clemont’s statement and how it contrasts with what he says in XY003, and both times it preceded a group hand touch.

Waaay back in XY’s beginning Clemont sought to travel with Ash as way of learning to become a better, stronger person, someone more assertive, more confident and jusst all around a more capable guy. He figured he needed Ash’s bravery to learn that.

And now, when all’s said is done, Clemont asserts himself back into the group as a vital member who has to watch Ash and be the brains to his brawn, basically he now believes that he needs HIM instead of the other way around. It’s a great way to show how far he’s come and represents a new chapter of Clemont’s growth if that was their intention.

Pokémon the Series: XY Amourshipping Drabbles - "A Battle of Aerial Mobility!"

So here’s how it’s going to be like from here on. It’s not going to be immediately after the episode airs, but I’ll get it ASAP. Sorry if it rambles a bit, but there’s not a lot to go off of this episode.

Also! I’m gonna start tagging each of these with “ptsxyasd” (for “Pokemon the Series: XY AmourShipping Drabbles) so you can search for that tag and should be able to find them. Hopefully, anyway, if I understand how tags work.

At the end, yayakoma agrees to be part of Satoshi’s team and Eureka’s promises not to steal food anymore.

At the very end of the episode, Serena is about to recieve the starter Pokemon. It’s interesting that when Platane is saying that the trainer he saw is Satoshi, Serena is overjoyed that he is actually the trainer that he knew in the childhood.
