Mallow & Lana! A Fully Powered Battle of Friendship!! (1073)

what about the Kyogre episode?

The poachers basically stood there and never challenged Lana's team or even landed a single hit, so definitely qualify as jobber bad guys. Kyogre itself was more challenging but less a battle and more an Ultra Guardian-esque problem to solve.

t kind of was, since it meant Ilima couldn't use it.

Fair enough. Weird a freaking Mega Kangaskhan plays plan B to an Eevee though.

Good to see some more battle oriented episodes for a change. I think principal Oak got robbed but then again that could be on account of Raichu being at a high level. (anime/ game logic) The last match was also surprisingly interesting and I got the feeling that Mallow and Lana got a bit of extra character and teamwork development. The clash concluded with a nice showcase of Z moves that also might have proved to be a deciding factor. As its possible that the quick downpour could have powered up Primarinas Water attack.

Honestly Ash should have said stopped Meltan’s pokeball coming out from his pocket and realized what Faba’s plans were. I am glad that Faba lost, but really he cheated on the battle. Cheaters never win, and they never prosper either.

Well, Meltan did want to fight so Ash respected his wishes too

Even if Ash respected Meltan’s wishes to battle, Faba was the one that used his own pokémon to get it out to the battle.

That whole fight was a joke though. The whole point was that Faba's cheating backfired on him completely. I mean honestly, what is funnier: Him being disqualified for cheating, or him getting utterly destroyed by the Pokémon he forced into the battle, only to then hypocritically accuse Ash of cheating only to get promptly shut down because nothing Ash did was in any way against the rules?

Both, but the order is backwards.

I thought it was a cute touch really, that Ash saw Meltan excited and just assumed he wanted a turn so brought him on first.

Also remember that the twerps are INCREDIBLY oblivious to villain plans.

Was hoping that Illima was Ash's first opponent instead of Faba. Would have been good LGPE promotion to see either Meltan or Pikachu take on his Eevee. Granted Eevee was injured in the Battle Royal but still.

At least we got to see Faba's attempt and fighting dirty blow up in his face :p

Reviewing the Pokémon anime in 10 words or less, and based on my previous comment:
"Ash vs Harrison but is Lana vs Mallow"

Episode: 7/10
 
I mean, it could've been worse

Mallow could've been serving food in competition with Team Rocket and they could cut back to that every two minutes to save on fight animation and add another 20 episodes to the league
I wanted a battle of the best hot dogs(?) filler, dammit.
