A Jolting Switcheroo! (Pokemon the Series: XY)
A Jolting Switcheroo! is the 16th episode of Pokémon the Series: XY, and the 815th episode of the Pokémon anime. It was first broadcast in Japan on February 13, 2014, and in the United States on May 3, 2014.
Bonnie accidentally takes a girl's bag, ending up with her Pichu, while the girl, Lyn, ends up with Dedenne.
- This is yet another bad filler episode.
- The filler’s plot itself is very bland, simply consisting of the group and Lyn trying to find each other to get their Pokémon back.
- Both Bonnie and Lyn are somewhat unlikable:
- Bonnie due to her not watching Dedenne, causing Lyn to take him by mistake.
- Lyn by running away from her older sister Lena, causing her to get worried, and causing the plot by taking Bonnie's bag.
- Despite Dedenne being close to Bonnie, he shows no concern for being separated from Bonnie, his caretaker.
- The gang notice a ribbon and confuse it for Lyn. Huh?
- Dedenne briefly gets separated from Bonnie and Lyn and they find him almost immediately, making both of the separations pointless.
- Lyn is a partial clone of Bonnie.
- Despite Clemont informing Bonnie to not overfeed Dedenne, she does so anyway at the ending.
- The animation and voice acting are still good as usual.
- Several cute and heartwarming moments, including Dedenne sleeping in the toy container, and Lyn and Bonnie crying and apologizing for the incident.
- Thankfully, it's just a filler episode. So, if they want to, the fans can skip it.
- The scene where Bonnie decided to tell the girl to take "care" of her brother gag is pretty hilarious. A nod to Brock flirting gag.
