Rivals for Goh?! The Road to Mew!! (1157)

Something something pandemic. Possibly. Japan is starting to suffer from a wave of cases because they're apparently too proud to use vaccines not made by themselves.
Japan has a 3rd wave, with a peak of cases in May 15th and a peak of deaths in May 24th. Both numbers are moving down since those dates.

Disappearing isn't that bad, actually.
Is it possible that we don't even have those one-minute Pikachu battles because it takes more time to animate during a pandemic.

Problem is the citizens there want Japan to postpone the Olympics because it isn't safe unlike last year when it was remotely safer, which means the situation may be more dangerous than we're led to believe.

Even if the series has changed drastically in this saga, I still don't think it will last beyond 150-ish episodes, the reason being the PWC is advancing way too fast offscreen (seriously, Ash is already at the second-to-last tier before we're even at 70 episodes) and the alleged worldwide tournament can't possibly extend into whatever new region there is after Leon's spotlight time is over.
It has been more than 20 years since they showed the goal of protaganist to be top trainer in world, one would expect the final tournament to not be rushed and would show long battles with previous/new rivals. They are now focussing more on Goh who apparently has adventure oriented rather than battle oriented story. I assume goh will have around 40 episodes to him given how jouneys is going. Removing fillers, ~ 20 episodes to conclude the main goal of protaganist shown over 20 seasons seems too rushed. I am thinking they will pull Game of Thrones season 8.
 

Power Up

There's light at the end of the tunnel
What do you mean? The animation was great—not as great as JN065, but still great. Did you not SEE Moltres using Burn Up?
Much of this episode didn't even move. Like zero character animation or anything. As far as the battle goes, not sure was great about it. The user above posted a tweet that showcases the baseline level of animation present in the battle with the Flare Blitz animation not looking so hot.

Even Ayaka Koide's cut here in this episode looks weaker than their other work on Sun & Moon.

According to Rica Matsumotu's JP Wikipedia Page, she originally auditioned for Shigeru but was told to play Satoshi.
Man, that sucks. Playing the rival who makes you more money but isn't that fulfilling personally...and generally.

I dont know :p
Pretty entertaining episode, it definitly put a smile on my face all the things that happened, the animation worked for what it was, infernape was dissapointing but he can still redeem, gary will come back and project mew looks acceptable with some callbacks to the first movie. And go at the very least feel like a character instead of a tool to resolve the problem of the episode.

You should probably save your breath (and sanity). Panky is an expert at strawmanning and dodging legitimate points. Just laugh at the post and talk to someone who actually knows what they're talking about.
As someone who knew Panky for quite a while, I feel the need to adress this.

He's not trying to dodge and strawman people. If I saw him do that, I'd assume he just misread what someone else said which did happen on many occasions but he's capable of recognizing when that happens if it's brought to his attention. As you can see in his response to you, he recognized that he misunderstood the other poster, and I can pull many other examples of him doing that, as well as conceding on flawed arguments. It's also quite bizzare of you to labell him an "expert at dodging and strawmanning" to then encourage another user to "just laugh at the post" when you have barelly had any interactions with him yourself.

I'd encourage you to find more productive ways to disagree with people than constantly being condesending and approaching arguments with bad faith.

Yea I honestly enjoy reading his posts even though I may often disagree
Hes one of those Goh dislikers that is actually fair and not a pure irrational hater who makes up false points or BS to hate on him
