Felt nice to go back and have Cinderace re-unite with its previous companions, as well seeing a bunch of Galar Pokémon make their debut. The Galar region in general is portrayed with such a beautiful environment in the anime and I just love its Pokémon designs. My only peeve regarding this master is that, at least to me, it felt kind of crammed in as I did get the feeling like they are in need of showcasing as many Gen VIII Pokémon last minute when it should've been done gradually over the course of the series; but overall, at least in this episode, it felt like it was done well and at a decent pace so I have no real complaints.
Also up until now, I never noticed that the fountain where Sobble was caught is also the same one that was shown in the very first SW/SH trailer that was shown during Pokémon Day 2019, or at least I think that it's the same one; it's a fun nod.
As for my main pros and cons:
-Beautiful environments and animations.
-Galar mons debuts.
-Sonia confirmed as the new Professor.
-Leon getting Eternatus, though we don't know if he'll actually end up using it during the final battle the thought of it is just frightening in of itself.
-Goh spontaneously being summoned for PM, which not only means that he won't be around to watch the final battle, but might also indicate things like PM happening off-screen or at the same time as the finals; it's pretty much looking like Rush Hour 4.
But most of all, please let this not be Goh's final appearance in the series, cause in a way the farewell between the two did kind of feel like an end-series goodbye.
Overall, the episode itself was good, but has also further sparked my worry for the coming weeks.
