    What a weird episode. Bullet seed stuck up Chaoboo's nose? LOL

    Eh, to be honest I expected more from the TR plot, but enjoyed the B-plot, it was creative and kind of cute XD

    Oww, poor Pignite! Especially after being thrown by Charizard. I imagine that would make things worse rather than better.

    That Chaobu thing was really...dumb...felt like they just needed something for Satoshi-tachi to do. This is why I'm against on-screen training, the training did to ignite Chaobu's fire was a chore to watch at times.


    EDITS:Whoops, I shouldn't reply early in the morning.

    But it wasn't training. It was very pointless, but it's completely in-character for Satoshi to stop whatever he's doing to help his Pokémon, so I don't really mind.

    So much for Genesect being relevant to Episode N. Mewtwo's cameo was more significant than that.

    Considering that N is clearly worried about Genesect, it will be weird to see him just move on after the White Ruins climax is over.

    So Charizard can do that to Pignite while not knowing Seismic Toss anymore?

    Beyond finding it amazing how effective Team Rocket's barrier stuff was on this particular occasion unlike all others, I didn't remotely understand the rest of the episode, so I'll just find the side story amusing and leave it at that until the dub.

    The thing with Choabu seemed really out of place and just plain weird. It was oddly cute, but just, why? Satoshi couldn't have spent that time training his Pokemon or something instead of something being stuck up its nose? okay. Just like Rocket Dan wasn't necessary in many episodes of Best Wishes, Satoshi & Co felt like they weren't necessary in this one, even if this is technically their story.

    The Rocket Dan/Achroma/Nyasu stuff was definitely interesting.

    ACHROMA LAUGHING THOUGH



    He's just like "lol naw man"

    It was great to see the Genesect cameo, i wonder in the movie we will see the N ceremony and the Reshiram attack!

    So instead of a practice battle between two of Ash's greatest Fire-type pokemon, the writers give us a subplot about how Pignite was unable to use Flamethrower as a result of the Bullet Seeds that were stuck in its nasal cavities from the battle in the previous episode? And Charizard threw Pignite to help it resolve that problem? Writers, why do you tease us?

    Other than that, I'm happy we get to see Frillish again after nine episodes.

    Now this is the kind of stuff we've always wanted to see from two evil teams duking it out. I wonder why Meowth is nyagotiating with Colress, and why he wants the evil beam used on himself. Regardless, now TR knows the flaw in the beam. (Unless that was the point) The junk with Ash and co. can die in a fire. Why is this saga so stunted? It's like you can't decide what you are. This is not going to reflect well in my evaluation. TO BE CONTINUED...

    I felt like there was way too much going on in this episode and most of it was unimportant. Pignite's Flamethrower problem, the grunts stuck in the woods, and N's flashback being squished into this episode seemed...kind of random. The Pignite issue seemed just useless and I think that could been replaced with something more relevant, like actual training.

    However, I thought it was so funny how small Krookodile was in comparison to Charizard and Dragonite. I'll give this episode a 7/10.

    Couldn't they atleast make Musashi, Kojiro and Nyasu more in-character for a Rocket-centred episode? Is that too much asked?

    Other then that, the Chaoboo subplot was weird but funny.
    Dogasu and martianmister like this.
