Next Time... A New Beginning :(
That was a nice, quiet end to the series. I'm at peace knowing Team Rocket will be chasing Ash and Pikachu for an eternity. Seeing Pidgeot after all this time feels like getting the 2nd region to explore in a game.
That was some masterful trolling. 'They're not the Latias and Latios from Pokemon Heroes... but those characters are in the episode.'
Not sure what the conclusion to this arc was supposed to be? Nobody developed here. Might as well have had Hunter J return and be the villain if we're doing...
that isn't how I would've wrote this episode at all.
I agree with everyone saying this is too abrupt to be the actual end of Team Rocket. Why would they leave their Pokemon much less each other? There's a lot of talk about being a 'traitor' and maybe that's the ending? They help save...
I have a feeling Giovanni is giving the TRio an ultimatum. He's giving them their Pokemon back and firing them if they don't succeed. I think they actually will, but decide not to steal Pikachu in the end.
I LOVED this episode. It had a weird but funny plot, it utilized Ash's reserves, and reversed the Team Rocket gag. The facial reaction animation was top notch again.
The ending got me in my feelings. We're really saying goodbye soon.
It's clear that this final arc is going to be a running joke greatest hits, which I'm fine with. But whoever wrote this episode better be done for the season. We only see Pansage from Cilan? And it's not evolved?? No reserves from Ash meaning we probably won't see them all??
This is a perfect example of Pokemon taking a simplistic episode and executing it with their character's personality and dynamics with others. It really felt like a throwback. I could've done without the stray Corphish battle record loss but hey.
