Satoshi and Go head to the Houen region to research a hot spring inn that's no longer getting any water. The villagers say an Absol is to blame, but...
FOCUS ON THIS:
The Disaster Pokémon Absol is really cool!!
Take note of the calm and collected Absol! Is it really the cause of this?!

----

Satoshi and Go have received a research request from Hoji in the Houen region, a boy Satoshi battled a while ago. It turns out that the hot spring inn Hoji's grandfather runs isn't getting any water anymore. The villagers blame the Disaster Pokémon Absol, but is this REALLY Absol's doing?! Satoshi and Go head to the Houen region to pin down the actual cause.

I suspect Absol(if it's caught) is going to Go. Unless the preview or something else hints at it going to Ash or another trainer

Absol would be a good add to Ash's team, but I can accept if it goes for Goh too. I mean, there are other Dark Types more interesting for Ash's team: Tyranitar (the potential return of his evolved friend Larvitar) and hopefully, Greninja's return.

I guess Go getting Absol is made up by the likely Iris episodes in regards to Ash.

But I'm not really a fan of these bonding capture episodes as of late given how they handled Ash's last 2 captures and these long droughts of nothing happening for Ash.

Yes Farfetch'd's development has helped this issue but what happens after Iris? Nothing else can develop for Ash, since they refuse to show battles including never using Gengar or Dragonite.

Hell Lucario hasn't been used properly in awhile.

I fear Ash is just barely going to get anything from this point forward since he's not capture everything boy, he's not battle everything boy either.

Not trying to justify Ash getting Absol since that won't resolve the issue by the way.

But I feel Ash's characterization being really bad this series is going to become very obvious in the coming months outside Iris and Gary.

The Glalie scene from the preview is probably from here. I guess them being attacked is a disaster Absol "caused". The Gorebyss is probably not, though given its Dex entries, you can say it fits as a "disaster". Dewgong getting two extra focus eps would be nice, though it's likely part of the obstacle course ep.

Pretty sure the Gorebyss scene is from the water competition since it shoes Dewgong being in love and it being weird that it would mot come from that episode.

Here comes a rehash, except difference is the Absol in question is caught by Goh, and ironically it won't sense any serious disaster befalling him any time soon.
