I'm not sure why but Lycanroc wagging its tail in the beginning reminded me of when it was a Rockruff. ;~; It's hilarious seeing the TRio just waiting to get hit by Continental Crush but it's even funnier watching Ash and Kiawe waste their Z moves on them!
This was a nice bonding episode for Jessie and Mimikyu... in a way, it paralleled Ash and Pikachu's first meeting. I don't know, the Murkrow reminded me of the Spearow and how they each tried to save the other. It's more comical and mysterious than emotional though. ^^; The jokes were really great in this especially the scene where James and Meowth were panicking since they knew Jessie was going to spend all their money! I loved seeing Wobbuffet get emotional and worried over Jessie and Mimikyu's disappearance and him just being there too late. At least he's doing something than just saying his name or standing there motionlessly in the background.
I thought this episode were really nice, I loved the Jessie+Mimikyu scenes as well as the others like the rest of the TRio finding Jessie and Mimikyu and Ash learning more about Lycanroc but I thought it was a Z move overkill. After seeing Continental Crush 3 times already in the same episode, it gets tiring and less impactful. Also, I'm really hoping that Lycanroc is still that little Rockruff we all loved since the beginning on the inside, I don't want it to devolve into a straight battle weapon. I'm relieved that they didn't show Mimikyu's True Form like they spoiled us with Rockruff's evolution in the last episode. I'm really happy to see the TRio again!!!! And Bewear too!!
Why? Continental Crush was used successfully only the last time.
