    Welp, guess N's dead. Episode N is over, guys.

    See you in the next arc.

    In all seriousness, this episode was great.

    Is it just me who thought of the Celebi movie with that last scene?

    This is at least the second time Best Wishes! has recycled the "city's been closed off" thing from the Zorro'ark movie. And both times they played music from said movie's soundtrack.

    I thought the tiny boat springing a leak was going to lead to something, but I guess not? Weird.

    Why was the Rocket trio so interested in the Plasma-Dan's machine? Do they not remember that their organization has used devices exactly like that multiple times before?

    Also, is the Rocket-Dan having the same fucking motto animation in every single one of their Episode N appearances their newest running gag?

    Did they bother to give a name to Ononokusu's trainer?

    I found the episode pretty boring. The whole emphasis on Colress controlling Pokémon lacks substance since it always gets resolved quickly.

    Does Looker know who N is, or does he just suspect a connection to Team Plasma?

    Handsome knows that the Plasma-Dan has been searching for N. So when Satoshi and his friends introduce him to Handsome he's able to put two and two together and figure out that this "N" person they're hanging out with is the same N that the Plasma-Dan's after.

    N kind of picks up on this too, which is probably why he was so eager to get everybody's attention off of him and back on track to finding the rampaging Ononokusu.

    Which leads me to my next question: Why did Team Plasma leave N behind if they're supposed to be looking for him? Did Ghetsis address that at all? Did he know that N would get healed in the forest?

    Ah, the signal can't be so easily overcome now. Too bad you can still just smash the machine. Bonus points for the sheer "Oh crud" of Dragonite getting the evil beam. Anthea? Concordia? Finally, we're going to get some answers. TO BE CONTINUED

    So wait, Shadow Ball hit the helicopter, but the only damage done was to the mind-control go-kart in the back? o_0

    Other than that, it was a fantastic episode.

    A well written episode, loved the music at the end of the episode.
    Poor N :( ... Achroma was a complete scumbag.

    One of the 'tolerable/very good' episodes.

    I think the show must really hate N. When he's not being horribly maimed, he's being poorly-drawn.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    I actually really liked this episode.

    It was good to see Ghetsis in person and I was also quite surprised when Anthea and Concordia showed up at the end.

    I also thought they did a great job at handling TR. They were competent and gave Angie a hard time, who apparently owns a Liepard.

    Other then that, I just enjoyed the plot of this episode. Looking forward to the next one.
