    I had been waiting ages for a Zoroark episode and then we got this weak filler for it. What a disgrace to Zoroark's legacy. 5/10

    I liked seeing Team Rocket in scuba gear and how Zoroark's giant Meowth illusion scared them. Zoroark's backstory was sad and I liked how Joy returned and how Ash's group helped clean the pokemon center.

    I liked that the shopkeeper at the start resembled a Kabigon. I've always liked Zoroark and its use of illusions, but I felt that his ability would've worked much better in a battle than as a plot device. I liked when he changed into a giant Kuitaran, though, and leave it to Kibago to get attacked by a Tamagetake.

    I liked the music and the animation during the giant Heatmor scene, but the rest of the episode was so meh especially the ending. I wish Ash and friends had done more, but unfortunately Nurse Joy was the main character. :x

    I liked the whole Zoroark mystery. You'd think someone who prides himself on his detective skills like Cilan would have figured things out, but oh well.

    Cilan not solving the case was a good thing IMO. We saw far too much of his detective antics in BW.

    Given that Zoroark appearing here seemed like a ploy to get the last movie-exclusive Gen V Pokemon to debut in the main series, I would've rather seen Luke appear in this episode with his Zorua having evolved, instead of getting a wild Zoroark.
     
  8. The first half was like a throwback to Island of the Giant Pokemon episode, so we were already off to an okayish start. The second half was a happy reunion between Nurse Joy and Zoroark. I found the latter half of this episode to be more interesting. It was really touching how Zoroark spent its time alone saving Pokémon. I would've liked to see more about the revamped Pokemon Center and how Nurse Joy and Zoroark were doing.

    He went kind of overboard when he was using his giant Pokemon illusions to frighten people who got too close to the island, however.
