Humans are tools
What was the point of hiding ep 138 for so long when it just gave the result in rather anti climatic way.
Still, them showing the end of the episode in a literal promo is a bit much. Then again... Japan seems to care very little for such things, considering how quite a few series seem to have episode titles that literally refer to the last thing that happens in the episode, and not in any uncertain terms either... Plus of course the summary for the next episode decidedly gave away how this one would end.Are people really complaining about the episode being spoiled?
Ummm...you do realise y'all in the Anime Spoilers section right?
You do know the alola league is bordering on a 1.0? The anime has never reached those lows before; thus the basis of my comment.
Have you seen the commercials that air alongside the Pokemon anime? They're for Pokemon merchandise and consumables, meaning The Pokemon Company is buying TVTokyo's own commercial slots to further advertise Pokemon products. A 22 minute long commercial isn't enough, it seems.
Those ratings really don't matter or mean anything. Especially in this era, the twilight of cable television.
