Goh and Cinderace! The Place Where It All Began!!

Every pokemon having an episode that explores its lore in a creative way actually sounds great. I am interested in pokemon because of pokemon after all.
Not to me. That sounds hella boring, cause not every pokémon has some sort of lore that can be expanded upon to fit a single episode. You'd just get a ton of:
1. Oh look at this pokémon and how it does this thing
2. Exploring
3. Oh dear. Team rocket tries to steal it
4. We're blasting off again

It'd just get extremely repetitive.

By the way, small nitpick, but Eternatus' "animation" was so lazy. It's nothing but a still image moving up and down, and it's especially jarring when they show the flashback of Eternamax where it had much more body movement. Also, I can't say I'm not disappointed with the fact they did nothing between Galarian Meowth/Purrserker and Team Rocket's Meowth. There could've been some really funny moments. Or, even better, have Purrserker take Meowth under his wing or something like that. Finally, assuming we won't see Goh again for the rest of Journeys (and hopefully forever) the lack of music at the end was so wierd. Like, seriously, there was literally no music at all.

Generation 4 was how I got into Pokémon
I just need to say this and I know I am going to get attacked for this but I don't care at this point. They finally get to shore more of Galar Pokemon but Its too little too late, they didn't show much of the Galar Pokemon since they were so caught up in the whole "Traveling the world". Its one of my biggest problems with this anime.

I liked the episode, that last third was absolutely bonkers, like it was a desperate mad dash to shove in as many Gen 8 Pokémon as possible but I can’t say it wasn’t at least fun to watch. The moment Camorant ate that Arrokuda and there was just a prolonged silence made me laugh my ass off I really thought that thing was dead but they saved him.

10/10, if only for finally showing Stonejourner

Yeah, literally 127 episodes in and no less than 10 Galar Pokemon make their debut in this 1 episode. And we still haven't even seen the Galarian birds yet. As a matter of fact, anyone else think the Moltres and Articuno episodes should've had them instead of the Kantonian ones? But I digress, it feels like the writers just realized "Oh, we barely showed off Galar Pokemon this series. Oops". As a matter of fact, the only non Galar Pokemon I can recall that appeared this episode besides Ash's Pikachu and Team Rocket's Meowth is Leon's Charizard.

12/9/22 NOT THE ENDGAME?
Goh is off to gathering Ash’s friends for the finals, he’s using Project Mew as a cover up to surprise him.
I think that might be happening too. Ash loosing badly for the first two episodes but then Goh brings all of Ash’s friends… and then Ash wins

I hope Goh stays for the next anime. Even though the execution of his goals was sometimes quite wonky, his bromance with Ash was one of the highlights of JN
I disagree. I think we've had better companions.
and the PM subplot was the best companion goal (and it can be easily brought over to the next season, too).
Really? While I can appreciate the concept of Project Mew; the execution has been terrible without any set goal so far. I personally found Contests much more interesting.

I mean, to each their own.

Eh, contests for me always felt like watered down battles because they didn’t want female companions sharing Ash’s goal. Besides, the way the “damage” was calculated always seemed like BS.

Project Mew sure was wonky at times, but it suits the anime much more than contests. There are endless possibilities for it, if given enough time and care.
