This episode amazing just because of Absol. Upsetting that people in the Pokemon Universe automatically blame the nearest one for disasters.
fyi: I'm really glad it kept it's voice from Jirachi: Wish Maker
I think this was a nice episode and had a nice story of Absol paying back for what Gordon did for it. Also I feel sorry for Absol for getting all the blame...
Once again surprised by Ash & Co.'s horrible eyesight of not identifying Team Rocket disguised as "Absol Hunters" XD
I thought it was pretty good. Now, I've gotta admit, I am getting tired of all these filler episodes before Ash's 8th gym battle. But, they had a lot of filler episodes before his 8th gym battle in Johto too, so that doesn't surprise me. Anyway, I liked the beginning, and how it looked as though Absol did cause the bridge to break, making it seem as though it caused disasters. That was kind of dramatic.
Seeing so many misfortunes befall Satoshi's friends and the Rocket-dan was interesting since it reinforced the disaster superstitions about Absol. I enjoyed how Satoru owned a Heracross since we hadn't seen one in a while, and the fact that the wild Absol was actually trying to prevent a flood was predictable, but fine.
A standard filler episode. I liked it all right just not many things made it stand out. Absol could have been handled better. I did like how the boss fantasy changed a little, that the mystery was not obvious from the beginning and all the time spent explaining the research on Absol was fascinating. Seeing so many Pokemon attacking one target was fun since it's something that mostly only happens in the movies.
