Wait so Sobble will just appear evolved?
Huh.

I just noticed the preview couldn't even bother to show the evolution part.

Dear goodness, this series is even starting to skip epileptic evolution scenes.

what if it's a wild drizzile and Go's Sobble's just curled up in a cupboard somewhere like its been for the past...uh...

...when was the last time Sobble did anything again?
Naaah. All the promotional images featuring Drizzile with Goh make it impossible for it to be any other Drizzile.

I mean, it's not like a starter from another region somehow got into the lab's grounds without anyone noticing. That'd be so stupid if it actually happened because that'd mean a psycho murderer could also get in through the window, right.

*stares at gengar and a fair few of Go's pokemon*

A little late for that, don't you think?

Sakuragi's already had to clone Ash and Go several times, given they've been eaten by bug-type pokemon and annihilated by golurk when it went berserk

That's the boring option though
It doesn’t matter if you find it boring or not, because at the end of the day the fact is the summary literally confirms that Goh’s Sobble is evolving in this episode.


The description says that it evolved after rescuing an Oddish.

How that happened and why the Preview didn't bother to show it is anyone's guess tho
Easy, it took a page out of Sycamore’s Garchomp book of how it evolved from a Gabite to a Garchomp. lol XD

I’ve just realised that we never saw Sobble and Grookey interact, like as soon as Grookey arrived, Sobble just sort of vanished.

Reminds me of when people said that Sobble wasn't going to evolve because of the Current Opening lol

If this doesn't prove OP's can't be trusted idk what the does
People should've learned this lesson after the infamous Charizard vs Reshiram we never got.

Goh should have just caught all starters without evolving them so soon, really. The way they're being so spaced out kills whatever little interactions we have during their phases.

Given the fact that this episode is written by Shōji Yonemura, I've actually got a lot of hope for this one to turn out good

Shōji Yonemura is one of the few Writers that is still around since the OS

And he also wrote a lot of important Journeys Episodes (like the Mewtwo one for instance)

(Interestingly enough, he's also involved in a lot of episodes where Leon appears)

Yeah that's actually invoking the opposite feelings for me. The Mewtwo episode has to be one of my least liked episodes of Journeys.

Mewtwo isn't Mewtwo without Shudo. Without Shudo, Mewtwo is reduced to, "Do you know who I am? Good. SHADOW BALL."

How is that not Shudo Mewtwo?

Journey's Mewtwo was far more lenient. Mewtwo didn't even attack until Ash and Go asked Mewtwo to battle.

Shudo Mewtwo was "Imma just steal your Pokemon..."

For starters, Shudo would have totally made the entire episode about Mewtwo instead of the last 8 minutes. Surely even have Mewtwo interact with the Pokemon he's with. Instead, he's just...floating around menacingly, doing nothing, until these two kids come to his turf and start talking about their goals which he then starts judging because...maybe he was bored, I don't know.

Shudo left the show early so.....I doubt he would have come back to write Mewtwo, since he didn’t do that while he was still alive and the show running. Perhaps he wouldn’t even have allowed the show to use his Mewtwo. I agree that Mewtwo didn’t feel in-character to me either. They made him too.....unapproachable as a character.
