Battling & Getting! Mewtwo Comes Back (1135)

I have mixed feelings on the use of Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution music in this episode. On the bright side, I have been slightly annoyed at the show reusing the same like four or five battle themes non-stop, and having something else play for once is nice... Plus y'know, playing Mewtwo's theme when Mewtwo shows up, what a novel concept! However... Mewtwo's theme was written for MSB Mewtwo specifically, who was decidedly more sinister than he is here, post-character development. So hearing those ominous church organs heralding his appearance here feels like a bit of a tonal clash?

Yee Yee! Agree. Also .......dynamaxed Pikachu should have battled Mewtwo

Well at least Grookey turned up!

Great episode, one of Journeys' stronger ones so far, although the common theme of Ash's Pikacario bias continues

Kanto is love. Kanto is life.
1.Another amazing episode.
2.Grookey! But only in a presentation.
3.Mewtwo used like 1% of his power.:p:D:p

That must be Faraway Island. Tickets, Mew, shore access via sandal-boat referencing the isolated-place. That is such a nice throwback to Emerald if so; the only game a wild Mew can be captured.

I watched the episode and I feel meh. Idk why I feel like this
Same....that’s the problem with hyping things up too much.....you expect more and get less

I also expected they would do something or say something special to further Goh’s Goal with mew (“dreams are made of these” episode did more for that) but that went nowhere either....character wise it seemed lacking too. It was just “hey look at Mewtwo and that’s it” although I will have to wait for the subs tomorrow. I doubt Mewtwo will be back. So like....whatever. XD the environments and animation looked cool though. And the character interactions between Ash and Goh are always fun to watch too.

It's hard to say for sure because one of the synopses gave it another name, but it might as well be Faraway Island (unless they said it was close to Kanto).

Well, it's nice that they brought they brought that Mewtwo back though I'm not sure what they were saying. Also, I was looking through the screencaps for this episode and that image of just Reshiram's head looks horrifying.

This Mewtwo seemed so generic and robbed of screen time it almost felt as though they could have used a third Mewtwo or even reused Femtwo and it would not have made any difference lmao

That said, since this is confirmed to absolutely be M1 Mewtwo, it's nice to see Mewtwo has finally found his life purpose as a protector or guardian of some sorts. Like many I just wish that Mewtwo could have gotten more of the focus overall but alas this show at the end of the day is about Ash & Goh.

Mewtwo fulfilled his FanFiction life purpose lol. Also I think this Mewtwo would have worked more being femtwo. You are right. Cause wasn’t she the one who had this protector of pokemon vibe? And mewtwo had the mysterious city pokemon vibe XD I honestly head cannoned Ash would encounter Mewtwo again in a city alleyway

Hmm seems like Cinderace isn't a walking Pokemon anymore, I wonder if that means Sobble will get more focus coming up
