April 5th: PM2019 020 - Go Towards Your Dream! Satoshi and Go!!

Discussion in 'Animé Spoilers' started by Dephender, Mar 6, 2020.

    Satoshi and Go have been chosen to lead a Pokémon Orienteering event at the Sakuragi Laboratories. And as they get exposed to how fun it is to battle and get Pokémon alongside the children participating in the event, the duo once again reaffirm their unfulfilled "dreams". And then, believe it or not, Lugia appears......?!

    Oh joy another Vermilion City episode.

    So I'm guessing the kids will play with all the Pokemon Ash and Go caught. Wonder what Lugia will do?

    Guess it's a continuation of the plot line from episode 2?

    CMButch Kanto is love. Kanto is life.

    This is like 10th time they re-affirmed their dreams?

    This somehow feels like a recap episode between the title, the premise, the massive list of animation directors and falling just 4 days after the anniversary of the anime...
  6. Bah, we are 20 episodes in. Poor Kalos and Alola

    What a world tour. More than half of the episodes of the series take place in Kanto lol

    It's not even really all if Kanto it's just one city. Aside from the Dragonite Island the most we've seen of Kanto is Vermilion City

    Yikes! thats a huge amount of animation directors. and yet another Kanto episode. After this one it will be: Kanto 12 Galar 4 Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova 1. Kalos and Alola 0. And Almost all Kanto episodes have been in Vermillion

    I'd be fine if at least there was some variety in the locations. Only Dragonite Island felt different.

    Well their base is in Vermillion, unless they take an extended leave (which would be nice), I don't think Sakuragi is going to buy them plane/boat tickets all the time, only when he needs them to do stuff.

    With that said, out of the 4 episodes, this one and the Ditto have me the least intrigued, hopefully it surprises me.

    Oh my god SEVEN director on one episode,

    Did they ran into some bad production troubles behind the scene?

    Also seriously another Kanto episode? Can we get to kalo or aloha already.

    Why does the plot make it sound like it's going to be a recap episode?

    Has this series fallen down the same rabbit hole that Yu-Gi-Oh VRAINS fell into?

    And will this episode win the award of "Most Animation Directors working on one episode"?

    You bet it will on the last question but hoo, this ain't lookin pretty.

    I wonder if Lugia might eventually join up to fight Eternatus. Maybe it and Ho-oh get G-Max forms in the new DLC.

    In other shows, several animation directors either means something big is happening or the episode will look really really bad. And the whole “reaffirming dreams” thing screams to me that this might be a big episode.

    Yeah but if they got GMAX forms they would more or less make the wolves redundant. Not sure if they would do that

    Thinking about it, sounds similar to SM020.

    The wolves not being able to Dynamax makes me feel like they might get Gmax forms in the DLC.

    Guys, let’s face it. When they said “all regions,” they really meant “all regions, but mostly Kanto.” The chilly reception towards BW (games, not anime) basically sealed that Gen I pandering will always and forever reign supreme in all areas, and anyone who can’t deal with that should frankly jump ship now.

    That being said, I hope this episode isn’t just a recap and actually has Ash and Go meeting/teaching the kids about how to battle/capture Pokémon. That’d be a really cute premise!
