    BW 025 "Hiun Gym Match, Purehearted Bug Pokémon Battle!"
    Now that Hiun City is once again safe, Satoshi turns his attention to obtaining his third gym badge from the bug-type gym leader Arti! Will Satoshi be able to win the match?

    - The old TR is back.
    - James got ... Desumasu.
    - Kurumiru evolved.

    I'm still confused. O_O

    What did JJM say? :O

    Oh look, now that Sakaki is busy and the Rockets are on their own, the TRio are back to their old selves! It's like some of us have been saying for months; They're still the same people, they're just acting serious for Sakaki.

    james caught desumasu. so easily. that's amazing for him.

    and they were told to go do their own thing as rockets and went back to old uniforms.... if they start wasting half of every episode on them chasing pikachu again i think i will scream, and mourn this amazing stretch of episodes that spent the entire timeslot on original plots.......

    but i'm wondering even more, what TR's hardcore fans think about this development!

    Ash VS Burgh
    - Tepig VS Dwebble. Dwebble wins using a combination of Protect, X-Scissor, and Rock Wrecker. Tepig tried to use Tackle, but the Dwebble is very fast. Tepig tried to use Nitro Charge, but Dwebble used Protect.
    - Sewaddle VS Dwebble. Sewaddle initially had the disadvantage, but used String Shot and Razor Leaf to defeat its opponent.
    - Sewaddle VS Whirlipede. Whirlipede at first had the advantage when using Hard Roller. In the middle of the battle, Sewaddle evolves into a Swadloon and learns Energy Ball. Swadloon defeats Whirlipede.
    - Swadloon VS Leavanny. Leavanny defeats Swadloon fairly easily.
    - Pikachu VS Leavanny. Pikachu initially had a disadvantage when trapped with String Shot, but later fought back and defeated Leavanny with Electro Ball.

    Other important news:
    TRio now has their old uniforms and personality back. They are using their Sinnoh TR music with the Unova TR motto. James also catches a Yamask that he gave Pokemon food. Familiar?

    Very surprising turn of events indeed. It seems the writers are going back to TRio following Ash and co. for Pikachu. What will become of the Sunglasses Krokorok who fulfilled almost the exact same role until this point?

    The subject for Professor Oak's Live Caster this time is Herdier.

    Guess who is back to be silly again? :p
    + Kojiro FINALLY gets a Pokémon.
    ( you could hear immediately that TR sounded different when their scene started :) )

    The gym battle was underwhelming. Artie was cool though, especially his battle style. ^^
    It hurts me to say this but Pikachu's battle was the only believable one tbh.
    Kurumiru was too much in the HAX for my tastes and Satoshi fought wihtout any strategy at all. :/

    Anyway, TR is back and that's what counts.

    According to Serebii, Giovanni became missing from the previous episode's events and Team Rocket temporarily disbanded.

    I just explained it. They were acting serious because they were an important mission for Sakaki.

    Interesting. Not surprised something like that happened.


    Oh yeah, hooray for Kojiro getting a Pokemon! I was thinking he'd get that one for months.
