I’m the biggest Alola stan you’re likely to find so I feel obligated to say I had a huge smile on my face seeing the new animation for the Z move, and it overpowering motor drive and winning the fight was amazing. I don’t know what I did to deserve it coming back out of nowhere but I’m so happy...
The truly unfair thing is that the z ring sits at home 99% of the time instead of being a permanent fixture. Realistically there’s no reason not to have it on hand at all times when you never know when a PWC battle could come up.

Woke: Ash will catch a Passimian, 2 v 1 Volkner with it in the very next episode, and then it will never be seen again
