Okay ep. I liked the Alola insert when Ash was talking about his time here but that was the only real standout moment here. Team Skull is slowly proving to be even more useless than Team Rocket. Cute Delia and Litten moments but that was about it. Not much here.
Team Skull is meant to be taken as a joke though. Plumeria, Gladion, and ya boi are the only threats in it.
Then why didn't Ash's father appear?It's so nice of Ash's parents to come visit him at school, unlike, you know, all those League times which were their son's biggest highlights.
It's funny how Litten freaked out at first but then enjoyed being petted, especially under the chin.Delia provided more comedy than most of the episodes I've seen. It was through her we could see more of Litten's deredere side.
I guess we'll never know why Lana is embarrassed by not just her sisters, but also her mother. Probably because since Harper and Sarah are here, they'll cause chaos, thus embarrassing Lana, plus, this is during the Open House where relatives and other characters come see. It's making Lana feel uncomfortable whenever they're around.So why is Lana embarrassed of her mom? She's fine to be embarrassed of her little sisters, but her mom is damage control.
No. Do we know she has grandchildren? Is she married? Does she really have her own family? The shop lady seems to be on its own, only enjoying Litten. The shop lady isn't going to get her backstory on personal life for us.Is that Old Market Lady ever going to get a name for herself?! And where are her grandchildren?!
It was cool to see this happen, but if Delia were to take on a villain team again, then I think the next time we can expect that is the next time we get a total solar eclipse in the United States after Monday, August 21, 2017.I wished Delia could have defeated Team Skull, but alas, this is the last time we'll see her taking on a villain team.
Snowy didn't appear (neither did Lillie) in SM23. What episode were you referring to? And I agree that it was nice of Delia to pay Ash a visit. And she did a couple of times, Kanto and Johto, I believe.-TPCi should've kept Snowy's Japanese voice in this episode since they kept it in SM13, SM14, and SM23.
Overall, this episode was pretty good. It was nice of Delia to pay her son a visit. I wish she could've done the same for his league battles.
Music kept in dub (4)
- Title card music
- Team Skull Encounter theme (faster version)
- Team Skull Encounter theme
- Alola Trainer Battle theme

I think by now that everyone knows that the title card music will always be kept.
Wow, I didn't expect Team Skull to show up in this episode! And when they did show up, i started to think it was going to be a two-parter, since I know they are appearing in the next episode based on its title. However, they are lame as always and got defeated in this episode. I really hope other Team Skull members who are more competent show up in the next episode, otherwise it's going to be a comedy of errors
I'm pretty sure he wasn't nervous about the speech itself but about getting the information right, since he was trying to make it more technical rather than personal. Note he wasn't nervous at all once he was told he could simply speak from the heart.5.5/10 - Why not bring Hala back for this instead of the boring old lady? Also Ash being nervous about something as small as a report in front of what was like 10 people tops, when he's saved the world countless of times, and performed in Leagues and tournaments with thousands watching his battles is just dumb.
this is the last time we'll see her taking on a villain team.
Oh yeah... it was SM22! I kinda mixed up the episode numbers of the Palossand episode and the Dugtrio episode.
Always... except when the Japanese version uses a different Title Card music. *coughThe Legend of X, Y & Zcough*
He was right there.
Thing is, those Skull grunts actually have names. They seem to be a counterpart to TRio right now.
You say it trusted her, but aside from when being petted it seemed rather embarrassed to be commanded by her and even tried to get away from her at times. It also didn't seem to like the idea of going home with her.This episode shows that Delia is clearly the best Pokemon Trainer.
Time it took Ash to get Litten to trust him: days or more likely, weeks
Time it took Delia to do the same: <5 minutes.
