    Ash: A Timeless Encounter

    While training in a forest, Torrcat and Lycanroc's attacks collide. This disturbs the Mythical Pokémon, Celebi, who causes Ash to time travel back many years to where Ash meets a young trainer and his Litten. Back in the present, Professor Burnet finds and old photo of Kukui as a child with his own Litten, which causes Kukui to reminisce. Will Ash manage to get back to his own time?

    One of the best SM episodes. Would have prefered a Ghostium Z for Torracat but Firium works as well since Torracat needed a Z Crystal.

    This kind of episodes, traveling to the past and meeting the past counterparts of th current characters are really interesting so I hope they keep making episodes like this in future sagas.

    Would have liked to see past Guzma, as well as Molayne and past Lusamine who could have been Kukui's travel companions.

    Overall it was an amazing episode.

    Really liked the episode, still don't understand why the Trevanant was a totem Pokemon considering we've only ever seen Totem Pokemon be 3x the size of the regular pokemon and on top of that, Trevanant is a Kalos pokemon not Alola, but who knows what the writers are thinking. Trevanant dying brings up some interesting points; the first being that Kukui knows what death of a pokemon feels like, which goes all the way back to when we had Litten's capture and Kukui being there to support Ash and Litten when Stoutland died, and the second being that they specifically made the effort to make Trevanant die, keeping it out of the current Totem Pokemon list we have. Could this further support the argument of the classmates becoming Trial Captains at the end of the series?

    Trevenant is still a species you can find in Alola naturally like the other Totem Pokémon.

    Quite the meta discussion between Gao and Ash's Pokemon League prowess.

  8. Lol anyone notice that Kukui is even shirtless when he was a child? I dont like it that Ash performs Inferno Overdrive correctly from the first time. Nice episode. 7/10

    Why not? He's an experienced Z-Move user and he's seen the pose done before. Sophocles just wasn't confident in his abilities to use a Z-Move and Lillie doesn't know the full pose

    Okay, after this episode I am going to be genuinely disappointed if Satoshi's final opponent in the League ends up being anyone but Kukui. Pretty much everything about their interactions here practically screamed "We are going to fight again later and Kukui will be the winner of that fight". (Though I guess he has technically already beaten Satoshi as Royal Mask...)

    Gao straight up asks if he's won the Pokemon League, there's a pause, and Ash changes the subject.

    Gao just asked a question which millions of people like us have been asking for more than a decade.

    Out of all the filler episodes, that was a well made one. It was sad to see the remains of Trevenant covered in moss, but they portrayed Gao just like what you expect from Kukui as kid.

    Actually, Kukui asked what happens when you win the Pokémon League.
    Satoshi did still kinda dodge the question, though.
