    of 2 episodes out of absolutely nowhere with 2 evolutions shoehorned in one episode, and then 2 back to back new Z-crystals for Lana and Kiawe. And the Grand Trial....the less I talk about it, the better, being a freaking 1 vs 1, where apparently Pikachu's Electric attacks worked apparently cuz Mudsdale was soaked

    Hasn't been really any better since, the Meltan 2 partner was underwhelming, especially the Ash capturing Meltan one which had mostly nothing but

    Rowlet-Meltan antics. SM113 was an OK-ish filler. The next episode would be where Pheromosa appears...but from previous experiences of many UB episodes I have a strong feeling that it's gonna be a slapstick comedy packed cluster-****.

    Overall, it's been really disappointing, the series has basically gone downhill since the LGPE arc....I have mostly lost hope in SM now and waiting for Sword And Shield, hope it can bring a great series just like DP/XY

    and redeem the fallen Pokemon anime.

    Currently, I just about keep track of the Pokemon anime every Sunday....that's all, otherwise I DGAF about the Pokemon anime. These days I keep myself engaged watching a ton of other great masterpiece anime...just exploring the anime world more and more, enjoying all those shows which are about 10-100x better than Pokemon xD.

    Yeah, Zeraora-Guzzlord episodes were good. I also found Necrozma arc to be good, Aether arc is ok(still better than Aqua/Magma arc).Also, i forgot to say fillers is also what killed SM for me.Yeah, M/B return in Kanto > M/B return into Alola.I only watched Alola,Alola stuff because of Misty and Brock only xd.

    Yeah, Poni arc was the worst. Agree with Pikachu and Golurk the most, he could only Iron Tail his way around and he was beaten IIRC, but Ash easily has destroyed Mudsdale. LMAO. Is Mudsdale her ace or Golurk.XD.I think I watched AMV of wolves, yeah Dusk one had a cheap loss.

    Either that of Gladion is that OP, Midnight Wolf and Silvally presented as OP Pokemon. Umbreon: IDK. Imagine Gladion havinglike one UB and Dragonite and Garchomp and he beats Ash in the league XD.I think Ash catching Meltan is cute(because Meltan is cute).

    But, I think Ash will release Meltan. I also don't see Ash having Melmetal. Same thing happened to Greninja, sadly. Writers: OH ASH HAS STRONG POKEMON WHAT WE DO? GUY: OAK IT, GUY 2: RELEASE IT. WRITER: WELL DONE GUY 2.

    Since I don't want Ash releasing Pokemon, why not let him have Meltan and Oak it,wile 19 other Meltan fuse together. But, I can see,since SM is comedy, like 19 Meltan fusing, but Ash's forgetting because he's too occupied with Rowlet or doesn't wanna fuse because of Rowlet.

    These are anime I watched: Digimon( like long time ago), Yugioh( I did re-watch when Yugi and Jaden were MCs),Pokemon, DB(DBS,DBZ), Naruto( that was my jam back like 7-8 years ago, but I did re-watch some Shippuden episodes) and OPM. That's it. I mean I am not really into anime.( I probably watched more kids anime back in the day like Beyblade, DInosaur etc.

    But, I do know lots of them like Hunter x Hunter, MHA( I actually watched MHA several episodes in the end of S1, it was OK), Death Note, Code Geass, FMA, Attack on Titan, SAO. But, I never come around to watch them, if I would I'd probably watch DN and AoT, since I am not familiar with others except the names and pictures xd

    Yup I also thought that the Necrozma arc was actually pretty good, it had some superlative animation, good teamwork and group dynamics, it was pretty fulfilling for the important Pokemon that were involved and integral to it as well (apart from Poipole who contributed nothing of course).

    Agreed, Brock-Misty eps were way better in Kanto beyond doubt, alongside good characters interactions they had two quality battles, while this time in Alola the eps only had good character interactions, the action parts were just a joke: too much Trio involvement, that skirmish with Trio in SM102

    was ridiculous with Gyarados' pointlessly shoehorned ME, and Brock-Olivia battle in SM103 were interrupted by Trio as well.

    Poni Island arc was easily one of the most messed up arcs I've ever seen in the show, agreed. As I said Ash's two losses were terribly done with a stupid desicion

    to battle Golurk with Pikachu; honestly the Gladion battle was just...portraying Gladion as way too OP which did feel like bit of a cop-out, honestly Silvally was already portrayed as OP before but wasn't really the same case with Midnight Lycanroc...but somehow it was able to effortlessly tank every one of Dusk's moves (including freaking Splintered Stormshards)

    and defeat it easily with one Devastating Drake....I mean, at this late into the series, shouldn't Ash and Gladion be more close in terms of being competitive? Ash's seemingly Alolan Ace went down just like a chump...it's hard to see Ash beating Gladion at the League, unless Pikachu can pull something really special. Not sure what Gladion's remaining would be, but with two OP mons like

    Silvally and Midnight Lycanroc Gladion already isa really tough hurdle for Ash to cross.

    The Grand Trial was bullcrap...how the heck such an important it can be a 1 vs 1? Why not give Torracat finally a chance to shine in official battles finally by making it at the very least a 2 vs 2? It just defies logic, just like the BS of Electric attacks working on Mudsdale

    because apparently it was soaked it water, in the battle itself.


    I am honestly in doubts about Meltan, it might or might not get the Poipole treatment...while the usual tradition whenever a Legendary like Pokemon follows Ash/Ash catches a Legendary like Pokemon is like: it hardly participates in a battle for Ash and then leaves Ash/get released, a.k.a. Meloetta/Poipole;

    however, the fact that Ash got Steelium-Z from Hapu makes me wonder that whether Meltan indeed used for battles by Ash, since Steelium-Z fits perfectly with Meltan. But then again, Pikachu is also another good candidate for Steelium-Z being used with,

    so I can't really be sure.

    I'm honestly not expecting much from the League TBH, when in comes to battles, SM always has been very underwhelming in quality, plus Ash doesn't even have a full team of 6 in the first place, which makes me wonder whether there will even be full battles in the League.

    When it comes to anime, the highest recommendations I'd give you are FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Attack On Titan, Code Geass and My Hero Academia, these 4 are my most favourite anime, they are just epic.

    Currently I'm watching both Sailor Moon and Hunter x Hunter 2011 and alternating between them. And yeah I've seen OPM S2 trailer and it looks very promising, hope S2 sets the bar even higher than S1. :) OPM is a great show, a subtle blend of action and comedy, and a perfect parodying of generic shounen anime.

    TBH, I wanted Torracat to evolve in battlw with Hapu since, it's the only one who can't use Z move, so someone can give Ash Incinium Z.I wish Hapu vs Ash rematch was 3 on 3..As of Meltna in the league. I noticed Meltan doesn't really like battling, he likes cuddling with Rowlet.

    But when Rowlet is in danger , he gets mad. So based on this, only way I can see Meltan participate is if it's double battle Meltan and Rowlet vs someone,I also, doubt when it comes to league since Z moves can be done once per challenge..

    I doubt Ash would waste Z chance on Meltan. Lycan, Pikachu and Incine(potential) have higher priority.But, I kinda remember your statement , like 1-2 years ago that you you thought Ash won't have full team in SM,so if Poipole doesn't return, you're right xd

    I don't think Poipole would return because IDK, how Ash would locate it... and I hope Ash uses reserves.About league, I think you will be right: no full battles. I think league won't be as important as "main" leagues, I think it will fall into category of Orange league just with more competitors instead of 1 on 1.

    I'd say that only one battle would be 6 on 6( finale) while rest of it would be 1 on 1, double battle and 3 on 3. I'd even say that total competitors would be 16 or even 32.Unless, Kukui says that everyone can compete so maybe we will see girls and Sophocles in it xd.

    I've seen so many people claim S2 animation is much much worse than S1. I agree that it's worse but not that worse that many people are saying. Compared to DBS, S2 animation is much better. But, it's still watchable.I'd wait to see episodes and the story and action, if that sucks, then OPM S2 sucks.

    I think those people who say that S2 OPM sucks because of animation only need to check their brains.This is same for example; new games that have "weak" graphics are worse than CoD BO 4, despite those new games having blast story, action compared to new CoD BO 4.

    Alongside that Torracat didn't get to participate in a single official battle in Ash's journey in Alola prior to the League, apart from that Totem battle with Lurantis...basically it participated in no Grand Trials, which was just terrible on the part of the writers, especially for a Pokemon that Ash caught only 21 eps into the series. Hmm, not sure if Torracat still has a chance of evolving since it has a rivalry

    with Kukui's Incineroar, but it happening as late as in the League is a possibility....I kinda hope for that cuz Ash's Alolan Team looks pretty weak at this point, maybe adding an Incineroar would make it decent.

    Hmm....honestly Ash getting Steelium-Z is the only reason I get a feeling that Meltan might as well battle in the League, cuz Steelium-Z fits it.....but maybe Steelium-Z is for Pikachu and not Meltan.

    the capture rate has been terrible in SM as far as Ash is concerned, they just wasted 23 pointless episodes with Poipole, who contributed squat in Ash's team before getting released by having him capture it, it wasted a slot on Ash's team for quite time, which is the main reason for this mess in the capture rate in this saga. Given that Poipole is in his own world, which is in the Ultra Space,

    I do wonder how Ash can call it back unless he tells Lusamine to open an Ultra Hole, which would feel rather forced. Plus Poipole basically left as a stronger Magikarp with zero battle experience, what can it even contribute in battles xD?

    Well, unless Ash's uses reserves, it's pretty much obvious that there won't be any 6 vs 6 battles lol, guess it'd only 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 battles then.
