    The Rocket Gang has challenged Satoshi to a battle in order to get Pikachu today as well. They get defeated and blasted off, but Musashi and Mimikkyu end getting up separated from each other in the process!


    The rag covering Mimikkyu ends up tearing.


    The Rocket Gang is after Satoshi's Pikachu as always, and challenge him to a battle. They get defeated and blasted off far into the sky this time as well, but in the process Musashi and Mimikkyu end up separated from each other.


    The Rocket Gang challenges Satoshi and his Pokémon to a battle today as well, their goal still being to get Pikachu. But as you'd expect, they get beaten and sent blasting off into the sky. Musashi and Mimikkyu then end up getting separated from Kojiro, Nyarth and the others. And when the rag Mimikkyu always wears ends up tearing, Musashi decides to...

    Separation episode, TR style only.

    Sounds like the Jessie and Mimikyu bonding episode we've all expected to come.

    How many wild Pokemon or people is Mimikyu going to encounter and freak out from seeing it before meeting up with Jessie again?

    Maybe this will be the episode Mimikyu will really care about Jessie and actually listen to her at all times, and then maybe Mimikyu can calm down about Pikachu as well.

    See if I actually was okay with Ash losing to Team Rocket, I'd almost want Jessie and Mimikyu to come back stronger than ever and actually defeat Pikachu in a feel good moment before Bewear carts them off, but I don't know if I would be okay with that, because of all the complaining that would bring.

    You know what would be sweet? If Mimikyu gets upset thinking that Jessie wants Pikachu more so she assures him that Mimikyu is her partner as she cares for it. She only wants Pikachu for the boss. It'd be nice to see Mimikyu in a vulnerable state where it cries thinking it is not loved and that its hatred of Pikachu is justified.

    Judging by the name, does anyone think this is going to be the reveal of the new Mimikyu form/Z-move we saw in the USUM trailer?

    If they reveal the third Lycanroc form in episode 37 then it's a possibility. They could be starting USUM promotion soon.

    Bwhahahahahahahahaha!!!!! :p:p

    The TRio and Mimikyu returns! It's been a while since we saw them. I'm so happy hearing this. (;.; ) I have a feeling Mimikyu's cloth has been blasted off...

    We need Mimikyu being vicious again.

    Interesting. Sounds like Jessie and Mimikyu will grow closer to one another when they get together after being separated. Must mean a lot to Jessie if she lost her Mimikyu, even with the first troubles when the series started.

    Akkipeddi Whoa looking cool

    I can't believe that I'm saying this, but from episodes 36 to 40, this and the Mallow episode are the episodes I'm actually sort of looking forward to, even though I don't even like TRio too much. The fact that they're more or less back on Melemele by episode 38 tells me that Ash is most likely beating Olivia in episode 36, and Rockruff doesn't seem to be evolving in episode 37. Episode 39, while I'm looking forward for some Mallow focus, revolves around a random Oranguru, that I personally don't see her catching (wouldn't mind if she does though, and I hope she can get a Z Ring). And episode 40 looks like a COTD debuting a Brionne in a standard explore a sunken ship episode.

    Atleast this one looks like it could be some key bonding and focus for Jessie and Mimikyu, and generally, although I dislike TRio, I do admit that when they receive focus episode, they're usually really good.

    Meh! A TR focused episode focusing on Jessie and Mimikyu! Not too interested in this one! :/

    I will watch it just for Mimikyu. I don't care about Jessie at all.

    Forget freaking out. How many wild Pokemon or people are going to curiously look under Mimikyu's rag and possibly die from shock?

    I just realized something. Why is TR blasting off and not getting scooped up by Bewear (whom, I am sure, is the reason there are no HMs in Alola- because it has them all)? Is this going to be their first real blastoff in the SM series?

    No. the first time they successfully blasted off without Bewear taking them away in SM was in SM16.

    In SM16, they blasted off and landed in Bewear's arms.

    Not sure if you count that, though.

    Only logical that would happen as to make the plot of the episode relevant. Bewear can't be in two areas at once. They did blast off in SM16, but Bewear caught them just before Team Rocket landed.

    EDIT: Greninja'd by Golden_Latias...
