So we start with the Rockets spying on the twerps. Kojiro is mad because Crimgan escaped (that's the rope he's holding). The great things about this is how much pain Crimgan was in. Nice Rockets, they are not.
But mainly I love
this shot of Musashi's lips in the foreground. You can tell right away this episode is going to be good for them...
Here's the mecha btw. They've really come a long way... <3
So a bit later Desumasu and Koromori (in that order) start attacking the twerps. This battle right here is what I've been looking forward to since the Rockets became competent. I just absolutely loved how Musashi and Kojiro were really working as a team to fight the twerps. Desumasu attacked first, and then Koromori came in from behind to take the twerps off their guard. That's
what I've been wanting to see from them for years! Some real strategy where they watch each other's backs while they fight, just like the twerps do. Something that bugged me in DP is while they fought together, they weren't really together
in their fighting. It always felt like one on one, just with two battles going on at once. Thankfully that's not the case anymore.
So then we break into the motto. Love these poses. We also didn't
get the DP music! Hooray! We got some awesome sounding stuff I've never heard before instead.
After that they escape and surprise surprise, they're up front while Nyasu is waaaaaaay in the back. We then hit our loan "funny" scene.
Crimgan is trying to escape and Musashi is asking Kojiro if the holding cell is really secure. Kojiro responds by saying it's perfect. XD
I just love the role reversal we have going on. Musashi is the annoyed one while Kojiro is the one acting with a "of course it's fine, I did it myself" type attitude. XD
Of course the Pokemon do break free so it's fight time again. Once again I love how they look here. Crimgan attacks but...
They're all "bitch, please" as Yoshi-san would say. (Kinda overselling it Nyasu...)
Eventually though, Pikachu does land an attack straight on them. Uh-oh...
But, no need to worry, they still have jet packs!
I don't know if it was Fujita's intention to troll or not, but it had me worried despite some things about the movie I'll get to in a bit.
