6:55 JST. If you don't know when that is in relation to your time zone, look it up. PM, by the way.

This was a decent episode, nothing too amazing yet but it also didn't suck so that's good. 6-7/10.

Still have no clue why Centiskorch was so high on the list considering it was a regular pokemon.

Was almost convinced Ash was going to catch Centiskorch but of course it belongs to some random girl.

I'm just desperate for a new capture already, not dumpster fire desperate but just something.

Take the little girl out and it was almost a capture set up.

If they were going to chase a random Pokemon why couldn't it be Wooloo like the games? We all know he's getting one at some point

The G-Max Centiscorch was awesome, I loved getting to see Pikachu, Riolu, and Dragonite fight alongside one another, just wish that it ended differently rather than Leon saving the day with Charizard. I hope we get to see Ash's team fight alongside each other again since they feel the need to let Goh's do that every few episodes

Ash actually using his Pokedex as a Pokedex was also a nice touch given how little it happens.

7.5/10 Would be higher if Leon didn't steal the show

Compared to the Sunday timeslot, it looks like it airs 30 minutes later, I think.

Probably because it was the only giga appearing. Hype, I think. So what did Doug do? :D

You really let your character biases affect an episode lmao
Anyway I'm pretty sure we will see ash's full team fight like what we saw here considering gengar is in next episode, so I assume Farfetch'd would be a part too

Doug was Eva's father? Eva the little girl who owns Centiskorch?

Not sure where we were exactly because the train stopped in the middle of somewhere, so it could be game accurate but with anime real life expansion.

Pretty good. The wolves encounter was great and I like how they set up Leon/Sonia meeting Ash/Go.

Did not expect Centiskorch to sound like that at all lol. Of course, it was just owned by a COTD unfortunately. GMAX Centiskorch rampaging through the town and using GMax Centiferno looked amazing.

I express my distaste with his team pretty often and it will probably go down as my least favorite but admittedly I did like the coordination between Pikachu, Riolu, & Dragonite when Ash tried to take down Centiskorch. He should do that more often instead of using the same 2 so often.

My favorite part was definitely Leon coming in with the Gym Leader remix coming in. I usually don’t think much of the anime’s music but that was some of the best I’ve heard in awhile.

Great start to this arc. Managed to get my interest for the first time in nearly 20 episodes. 10/10

I thought Goh might capture someone new before dealing with the crisis in Galar but I wasn't expecting he'll capture an older gen Pokemon

Kanto is love. Kanto is life.
Episode was good-ish. Hopefully next episodes are even better.
