???: PM2019 028 - Messon Sobs For What Reason?

Discussion in 'Animé Spoilers' started by Dephender, May 8, 2020.

    While still in the Galar region, Satoshi and Go encounter a timid crybaby Pokémon called Messon. Messon is very cowardly and quick to cry, and the components of its tears cause Satoshi and Go to be unable to stop crying as well. Not only that, but since Messon turns invisible when it touches water, it appears its own tears make it disappear, so Satoshi and the others lose sight of it. And then the Rocket Gang arrive in the Galar region...

    Episode Director 小柴純弥 (Junya Koshiba)

    So a typical team rocket helping ash catching a pokemon by doing by trying to steal it
    But main point making it super hyped the boy sobble's debut and get caught by ash

    DuquÊ? Too lazy to pick a pic

    Sobble = Blue Diamond.

    It looks your average capture episode + Team Rocket battle to give confidence to the mon. But, nice to see info coming out.

    The summary implies they aren't even in Galar yet at the point Satoshi and Go first encounter Messon

    lol
    Riolu is going to be the only capture Ash gets this saga that doesn't involve Team Rocket, isn't it?

    I hope Team Rocket get something new here and aren't interfering, James needs something already!

    At long last, the confirmed Sobble episode title. Considering this Pokemon is the one I have waited to see since we got the first title back in November, this episode summary is so standard it's underwhelming. Ah well. Should be cool to see Sobble in action a bit.

    Sounds like the first portion will be more the boys comedically trying to get a grip on Messon’s tears and establishing it as a coward. Second half will be about TR appearing and Messon using its signature crying talents as a way of defeating them. Somewhat standard formulaic capture I feel...hm...I think I would have preferred something more Hibunny-esque. I feel like the writers are leaning too far back into their old habits since TR were used as development/capture/evolution-catalyst a fair amount already? Surely they can introduce some rivals or other antagonists of importance?

    Then again they could just be going to Galar for their own reasons like getting a Dynamax band or getting new ‘mon.

    Team Rocket tries to take Sobble, Ash saves it, then it accepts his offer to join his team.

    Seems pretty straightforward

    mehmeh1 You can make a change

    eh, I'm excited to see Sobble, but this episode sounds like the standard capture episode we've had since forever

    Neither this nor the previous ep have Sonia mentioned in the summary, so either she's being kept hidden for insert reason here or we're going back to Galar soon after this.

    So Sobble is just going to make Ash and his team cry whenever it's tears touch then? That would be funny considering Riolu is an actual baby

    Weird, Shimura Izumi usually helps Iwane correct his episodes. I wonder if the production is still wonky...

    I figured that Galarian Farfetch'd could be caught in the background of episode 27. Go could catch it before the match between Leon and Raihan

    I don't think Team Rocket is after Sobble specifically. It seems a bit wierd for them to want Sobble of all Pokemon. I think they're here for something else. We just don't know what yet. There's probably more going on in the episode than the synopsis is letting on.

    Sobble! Finally. I am excited to see how this crybaby grows into a dependable Inteleon under Ash's care.
