    The Rainbow & The Pokémon Master (1236)

    Ash just needs to Backwards Long Jump to reach his goal, simple.

    The Rainbow & The Pokémon Master (1236)

    Actually an essay time?! First of all, THIS IS NOT A DRILL, Tracey Sketchit SPEAKING for the first time since 2006? Le gasp. And yes, I am making a big deal of this, for like no reason of course, but I have said... at some point in the past (if memory serves me right) that I'd have liked to see...

    Ash & Latios (1235)

    Not an essay time: First off, before I delve into the meat and potatoes of the episode, I will say that I wasn't expecting to see TR after the events of the last episode with the trio approaching TR HQ each not knowing the others are heading there, though how Jessie ended up with the balloon is...

    Team Rocket's Counterattack (1234)

    I swear this has become a trend these past few episodes.... late essay time again: Considering this is Team Rocket's swansong episode, the ending just didn't sit right with me, though having said that perhaps it was foreshadowed in the JN episode where Cassidy and Biff... I mean Butch appeared...

    What Banette Is Looking For! (1233)

    No, you forgot to post an episode review from last week. I thought it was cool to see a Banette being born from an abandoned doll in the anime as stated from its earliest dex entries from RS, 20 years ago, which sidenote this episode also marked the first time Banette has received a dex entry in...

    Riding on Lapras (1232)

    Not an essay time: This is not a drill, Ash actually used 6 pokemon this episode? That's a first for MPM. In any case, we knew from the preview that Kingler, Sirfetch'd, Bayleef and Heracross were going to appear but I thought that'd be it, so it was a surprise to see Ash send in a 6th, namely...

    And We're Looking at the Same Moon! (1231)

    Not an essay time: This episode certainly hit different in the feels department, we got a reminder of the fact that even though Ash and Pikachu were apart for most of the episode, they somehow were able to sense each other's thoughts, and props to Pikachu for prioritising Ash's hat when it would...

    Enter the Squirtle Fire Brigade! (1230)

    Not an essay time: Of course Team Rocket would try and weasel themselves into being the Squirtle Squad's managers, and it wouldn't be the first time Meowth micromanged its members either considering he previously used three of its members to help set up a party in Big Town, and whilst I'm on the...

    Beartic's Sigh (1229)

    No, you forgot to post an essay (smile): This episode was fine. Going in I theorised that the Beartic in question is freshly evolved, presumably sooner than it thought and struggled to come to terms of its new power and it's endearing at how relatable Beartic was in this episode. I'm sure we've...

    Brock, Cilan and the Forest Witch! (1228)

    Once is enough for most people anyway.

    Brock, Cilan and the Forest Witch! (1228)

    Not an essay time: I liked that Cilan brought up that he and Brock first met in Johto, though when the dub of this episode comes out, it might be a tad confusing for viewers as the special featuring Brock and Cilan in Johto was never dubbed, but it was also neat for that interaction to remind...

    Ash VS Misty! A One-on-One on the Beach!! (1227)

    It didn't occur to me until earlier, but I like that Politoed redeemed itself from its loss in EP151 when it was a newly evolved Poliwhirl. I had completely forgotten that Misty's Poliwag evolved in the battle for Totodile.

    Ash VS Misty! A One-on-One on the Beach!! (1227)

    Actualy an essay time: First of all, congrats to Misty for ending Ash's long unbeaten run that spanned TWO YEARS (and five days), which leads me to the below image. Didn't think I'd bring this image up again after the Ash vs Leon battle, but it somehow became relevant again in this episode...

    The Wind of Beginnings! The Eon Path!! (1226)

    No, you forgot to post an essay (smile): I think it was neat the OP and ED used footage from throught the anime's history and it was also a breath of fresh air as it wasn't the 20 billionth remix of 1,2,3 or the last ED for JN that I thought was cringe and muted when I watched the latter...

    The Distant Blue Sky

    Yeah, given this is a shorter, standalone narrative, the writers felt they could get away with this. Not to mention they probs would've dedicated a little bit of time to interaction with Ash and his dad if any.

    The Distant Blue Sky

    Not an essay time: Not gonna lie, I feel that given the emotional feel of the episode, I don't think it would've sit right for us to actually see Ash's dad. Yes, it would've been hype, but on the other hand, I'm not entirely shocked that Ash just happened to miss a meeting with him, but y'know...

    Ash and Goh! Setting Off Anew!! (1225)

    Not an essay time: Even though the raid battle was called off, at least Ash/Go didn't win, though the absolute audacity of Go thinking he could capture Lugia only for Lugia to completely destroy it with Aeroblast. The scene of Ash/Go riding on Lugia and seeing Ho-Oh was pretty cool. Not gonna...

    Pokémon! I Am Glad I Got To Meet You (1224)

    No, you forgot to write an episode review (smile), here have an unecessarily long essay for no reason: My condolences go out to the Tauros and Snivy for being the only of Ash's Oaked 'mons to not physically appear in the episode, at least they appeared in a fantasy alongside the pokemon Ash...

    The Future I Seize (1223)

    Not an essay time: I'm going to be real, I felt this was a tad underwhelming considering the payoff we got, though that's probs because of how quickly this was resolved. I'm not surprised that the "Groudon" and the "Kyogre" were really Mew in a transformed state, though the fact that it split...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Not gonna lie, when I saw the name given to the Wooper you get from the in-game trade, I found it amusing. My immediate reaction was that the NPC is a Manchester City fan to name her Wooper "Manchester".
