Omg, it was great to see Durant for the first time. I do wish Leavanny would have learned a new move in this episode, instead of using the same ones from before. The Shadow Claw attack by the Durant was really animated well.
Now that I think of it, it seemed peculiar that we saw a whole colony of wild Iront in this episode, yet there was no sign of Kuitaran. I would've appreciated seeing a Kuitaran infiltrate the nest during the Kibago rescue mission.
The dub title doesn't make sense. The Durant weren't "stealing" leaves.
I completely despise Axew and its constant need of saving. At least I understand what they're trying to do by giving it so much screentime. It's cute so they want to drive sales. The one I don't understand is Scraggy. It's an abomination, annoying, and an extreme waste of screentime.
Would've been so funny if a wild Heatmor had fought the Durants because it's their natural enemy. I thought that Axew getting kidnapped was bad because he always seems to get in trouble and become a damsel.
