Well interesting. Pikachu's electricity is crackling and it seems weakened, could it indeed be a plot reference to Zekrom in the first two episode of Best Wishes?
or that the new move is wild bolt, which induces recoil.
ONE WEEK LEFT and this damn episode will finally air after all these months. Wonder what the Ducklett was doing in Sandile's mouth, did it want to get eaten lol? Zekrom reference or Pikachu just blasted itself because of the umbrella? Anyway, seems that scene is where Pikachu will learn the move. Dunno what Sandile's role is here, but it wants to battle Pikachu at first. But for what reason, impressed by Pikachu's strengh? It caught them by digging a hole trap? That Sandile reminds me of Team Rocket lol. Whatever it evolves or not, it will be eventually caught. Not putting too much hope on it getting caught in this episode. If Sandile does evolve in this ep, then it will be the first one for this whole series
