I actually really enjoyed this episode, it was so much better than the previous two.
I love Poipole, it is adorable and I love that it is so playful. I was a little surprised that Ash got Poipole but I would much rather him get it now instead of them dragging out the capture. I will admit that scene towards the end when Poipole kept dodging the Beast Balls Ash was throwing at it had me cracking up, especially with the facial expressions Ash was making.
This episode made me love Ash’s Rowlet more than I already do. It has now overtaken Gible as my favorite episode Ash has caught. The fact that it went to defend Pikachu, who it thought was being attacked, made me smile. I felt bad for Poipole though when Pikachu started yelling at it. But at the same time, Poipole was defending itself from Rowlet, who was going to attack it. Don’t act like you wouldn’t do the same thing if you were being attacked, Pikachu.
While I do love Bewear in the air, I’m getting really annoyed of having it swoop in and grab Team Rocket when they’re losing. It was funny the first couple of times but now it is really beginning to get redundant. I would gladly take them blasting off again at this point. Can we think of something else, please?
So all in all, I really enjoyed this episode. It wasn’t the best one but it was better than the previous two by a long shot
sorry, I just do not like Iliama in the games or the anime at all whatsoever but I’m beyond sick of Bewear and Team Rocket. 8.5/10
