The Detested Absol (1153)

U.N. Owen

In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night ...
Cuz he is a bully and ew.
The fact people need to make up fake outrage when there is plenty of perfectly ripe outrage material speaks volume to their ability to project nonsense.

As for the episode proper, it really would not be too out of place in AG. As its own episode, it's nothing too special to write home about.

Either way, I don't see where this outrage in Gou catching Absol is coming from. I mean it's fine to complain, but is it really as big of a deal as people seem to be making it?
Absol is a pretty popular pokemon. People want Ash to catch it. When reality doesn't line up with their novel-length fanfic, they need to take their outrage on something or someone. If it's another character, they will take it out on another character. If it is a writer, ahem, XY fans post-league, then they'll take it out on them. Hell, I remember a story in Taiwan where people flat out tried to kill fan artists over stupid outrage.

Just watched the episode. Usually I lurk around here but I thought I'd chime in my thoughts.

While I was on the bandwagon with those hoping Ash would get it, thought it over the week and figured if anyone were to catch Absol, it should have been Houji. Goh gets enough captures as it is to the point where it's exhausting, and while it would be cool on Ash, he barely interacts with his current team as is. So honestly it would have been a lose/lose situation.

Predictable, but I still was hoping to be in some way surprised at the end.

Play mediocre mobile game, get corresponding alteration to the anime.

The fans set themselves up for all their outrage.

You all played Go, and made it more popular than the main series in microtransactions than game & merch sales, even if you didn't buy anything..you downloaded the app and sold your data to big data. You made the money for the that way.

You got Goh as a result.

They were just meeting the demands of what is popular.

Maybe don't BBND, don't play mobile games, and this won't happen again.

Goh got an Absol.

And nothing of value was lost.

Like me in fact...

I'd do it as well but finances aren't helping much lately.

If I knew that supporing Pokémon Go would give me Goh (the character), I'd have spent more in this game.

Hey, don’t blame people for jumping onto a cool trend!

You should blame them for assuming Ash would get Absol with little to no proof.

Journeys >>>> SM by far
I didnt understand why there is so much controversy for this episode, Ash has already caught Pokemon for more than 20 years, he has reserves that he can use at any time, the guy does not need an Absol

Goh deserved this capture, he solved all the water problems, he understood Absol, he even saved his/her life. It was one of the best episodes, I did'nt expect so much salt.

The episode that was garbage was Grookey episode because even if some people say no,unironically I still think it was a robbery. This episode was the opposite,...this is how Goh's captures should be, the boy does better and better ... I just wish he fought a little like against Scyther.

TPC simping for mobile cash shop money since 2016.
Why must Journeys simp for Pokemon Go players when the majority don't even watch the anime? I don't care if Ash didn't get Absol, but watching this stupid kid chuck Pokeballs is not entertaining. Can't wait until the Project Mew arc where Ash and Gary take down Moltres and the writers let Goh get the free catch because he "helped".
 
This capturing to save the pokemon gimick feels so complacent lol.
Capturing to save from capture? That sounds like hypocrisy. Is Goh a hypocrite?
Aura Sphere would've easily taken care of the massive rock boulder
G. Farfetch'd casually destroy large boulders with leek. Does evolving to Sirfetch's reduce the leek's power?

Seems like the writers have lack of coordination when writting the episodes of Pokemon Journeys.

Not to restart this debate, but if you’re stealing a Pokémon from Team Rocket—one that belongs not the TRio personally, but to the organization, which steals and abuses Pokemon for money and world domination—is it REALLY a bad thing to do?

Psycopath, thief, a bully and now an hypocrite? Is there something negative that Goh is not at this point?

Let's not start with this again, already said that it is my opinion, no matter how much I reflect on it, like some Japanese that day on twitter, I think it is a robbery.
