This wasn't too bad actually. I like the focus was more on the laid back parts (and TR as usual being a little too into their disguise, always much more competent in other professions). I admit I would have liked more of a fight from TR but I kinda give up on that, they at least got as far as using an attack this time I guess (they could have at least had Mareanie use her Z Move or Knock Off though, what was the point in learning her those again?).
It's odd they captured the normal Pokemon so early, I was enjoying their interactions as well, still I can't complain that the focus was more on the Ride Pokemon, who direly need more characterisation. Funny how most of them seem to relate more to Ash, rare case he instigates butt monkey humour for the others this time round. XD
Oranguru's cameos were random, and as usual Bewear turns up a funny way (always love those pause shots of the jaw-dropped twerps as well) and then forces TRio to relax. I'm surprised there was zero build up to the upcoming big arc though, not even a call from Giovanni at the end.
This leaves me convinced the TRio should have done more 'incognito' episodes this series, it would have left them with more of a gimmick compared to the other villains and a better way to bounce off of the twerps. Otherwise them and Team Skull are just too similar and they're just not using any opportunities to make them more challenging, not even with a freaking Z Ring.
