I still don't like having an episode unrelated to the Unova League in the middle of it, but whatever. At least is was funny. Bianca's reaction to Axew getting swept up by the crowd was great.
Pray tell, how was this episode not a filler? Is it because they showed twenty seconds worth of a battle? I'm not sure how less than 1% of the episode's length automatically makes the whole thing a non-filler. But if there's something else, then please enlighten us. You always give us grief when we say an episode is filler, but you never bother to explain why the episode isn't a filler. I'm waiting for the receipts.It wasn't a filler
Makes you wonder who the other 3 were that he used in the offscreen battlesUgh, i'm not against a break in the League, but this was too early. They should have at least held it until after Ash vs Stephan.
And again another thing that annoys me with the League, we know from the previous episode that first rounds are 2v2's. We only saw Scraggy for 10 seconds defeat a Darumaka.
Would it have REALLY hurt the writers to spend 3-5 minutes on a real 2v2 battle? Just to make Ash's Unova League experience feel a bit more longer? The filler itself was fun but it could have been cut down to make room for Ash's first round 2v2 battle.
