    I'm confuse on why the twitter account didn't post this Episode long with the rest since it doesn't spoil anything in its title

    Blue Saturday too fly

    Series-spanning thing or one-off event?

    Guess it’s something like the little festival where Satoshi fought the Tower Tycoon in Sinnoh. Also the Battle Frontier is in Kanto in the anime not Hoenn..unless it’s the games Johto/Platinum frontier?

    So Kanto, Galar, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh... that only leaves Unova, Kalos, and Alola now right?

    Edit: This new series is really confusing. The focus is all over the place. The lack of consistency is kind of annoying honestly.

    I love the Battle Frontier reference and all but... it's in Kanto and Sinnoh in the anime. Not Johto and Hoenn

    Also disappointed that this wasn't a capture episode..... please don't go past episode 10 without giving Ash something

    Ash without catching a single Pokémon in the first 10 episodes, heck, 5 episodes in, never happened before, I'm getting a bit of anxiety about this series now, like throw him a Rokidee in episode 4 or 5 at least...

    Exactly, I don't care if it takes awhile for his second capture to happen but for pete sakes. I don't want him to be stuck with only Pikachu for a long time, it's why the AU movies suck.

    Just give him something

    If they don't mention the battle frontier at all that Ash competed in I'll be beyond pissed

    This was the 7th episode?

    Did they just not tell us because how boring it was?

    I don't mean the episode in of itself but the title and summary being boring because at least the other episodes dealt with something far more specific that could be illustrated while this not the case.

    pancakemonster Sir please step away from the dog.

    I guess we pin our hopes on a lowkey Rookidee capture during the Galar episodes.

    How would they avoid continuity?

    Well, they have started by putting Battle Frontier in Hoenn.

    So, either they moved the Frontier to its game location, or this is an anime-original version.

    If it's a tournament, I guess we're doing the Dome?

    Episode 4 doesn't have a illustration either (in fact, the twitter doesn't announce the title either). However, it is the episode where Scorbunny appear.

    Maybe the tournament in Episode 7 will be important for this season.
