Here's a Real Shocker! A Dugtrio Split-Up?

Ash and co. are attending a concert being held on Melemele Island and see a performance by DJ Leo and his Dugtrio. Going backstage, Ash starts getting to know the Dugtrio, but the Dugtrio starts fighting with itself putting in the possibility of splitting up. Soon after that, Team Rocket appear with their eyes set on Dugtrio. Will Dugtrio be saved and able to reconcile its differences?

Brock, May and Wally wigs? What is this! Like Wobbufett's middle life crisis wig.

Now their playing Clemont's invention theme.

So Kukui knows Leo?

Uhh, is it just me or is Leo throwing in English phrases in the raw episode? Anyone shed some light?

Bite or Crunch?

Can we please get the older, old forum back?
Ever had that moment when you were watching an episode and you just zoned out? Happened 15 times now during the same episode.. -.-

Love Bite's animation though..

Literally the only worthwhile moment for me thus far.

Cuz he's a rockstar and that's what big stars do. -.-

Kinda average episode. I did enjoy the references to may and other characters, and kiawe. Also loved the part with lana and her sisters in the ending. Other than that, nothing much really happened that was too interesting. So I'll give it around 6.5/10.

Not really looking forward to this episode so let's get into it.

-BWHHAHAAH! Everyone's shocked that Kiawe wants to wear one... I love those different reactions. :D

-M-M-May's hair is on display!!!! Brock's hair too!!! :eek: And I think that wig next to it was an afro worn by Meowth a few times. Are the TRio selling their old wigs they used in the past?!

-I liked how they had the microphone sound get a bit louder in the background... I hate it when that happens.

-I miss and love the old violin sad tune~ :D

-Ok that last bit was great!!!!

Prety good episode. I thought it'll be kind of boring but I was pretty entertained especially by Team Rocket. I see Mimikyu is finally listening to Jessie. I liked Leo's story about the Dugtrio and he was the one (along with the little Diglett) to save Dugtrio from Team Rocket. Ash and Kukui took a backseat and they were needed when they were. :) The Dugtrio singing is kind of nice to hear once you get used to it.... but I don't think I could listen to it more often. ^^

It's pretty sad when the best part of this episode was seeing those "certain" wigs that Team Rocket was selling and the preview for the next episode. Kiawe's reactions were funny though, seeing everyone in their wigs, and rapping Meowth (don't quit your day job there buddy), and putting those charms on the Dugtrio. I was getting a little pumped when I thought Ash was going to battle Team Rocket, but alas...DJ Leo and the Dugtrio handle them.

Not really much else to say about this episode, probably my least favorite so far tbh.

Well, she did tell it to attack Pikachu specifically if I heard right.

Anyway, this was a fairly entertaining episode. Nice reference to May and I think Brock's hair was there as well. I couldn't identify them all in the time they were onscreen. Did Leo know Kukui in the past? It kinda seemed like it but then Kukui wasn't in his flashback. Kiawe's reaction to the wig (and how he was convinced to wear one in the first place) and Ash kind of flaunting his were funny. News lady had a bit of an extreme reaction to the break-up. I'm going to go look for the bits after the episode so I can see what happened with Lana. Next episode looks fun. All of Ash's Pokemon love Delia immediately it seems.

Nah, nothing much to say about this funny filler. The first part was really boring with Kiawe's hilarious emotional burst in the wig(yikes that was horrible!). The second part was better though, TR made this episode more entertaining. Dugtrio's tri-attack looked pretty good in the SM animation. Overall, I'll say 5/10.

The animation of Iron Head looked quite unusual and frankly ridiculous. Was that because of Alolan Dugtrio's hair?

That is the Steel-type part of them, so, yes, it was because of the hair.

So much for SM being an "alternate universe" or "not Canon" to the past series.

Well technically it could still be a mirror verse. Regardless I'm just glad that there's some acknowledgement of the past though I'd be even more happy if Ash mentioned them as past companions.

It's not like he saw the wigs though (as far as we know, at least). Wonder if they're adding in a bunch of minor continuity to make up for XY barely having any aside from that one Piplup reference and the final episode.
