Advance of the Therian Formes! Unova's Greatest Crisis!!

The situation is getting tense. With Team Rocket having unleashed the Abyssal Temple and Ash, Meloetta and Pikachu captured by Giovanni, things truly get bad; Giovanni soon summons Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus through the Reveal Glass and orders them to go on a rampage. It's up to Ash & Co. to stop Giovanni and the rest of Team Rocket from taking over Unova. Will they be up for the challenge, or will Giovanni succeed with his biggest plan yet?

They would have featured Team Rocket heavily in the preview if this were it, if anything this looks likely to be Giovanni's final appearance. Maybe Hunter J will pop out of wormhole at the end hahaha

Giovanni looks into the mirror and it glows.

The top of the temple opens and then Meloetta screams whilst Meloetta's eyes glow.

The others are on a speedboat headed for the temple and they see a beam from the temple going into the sky above.

A portal opens in the sky.

He's explaining the history of the temple, or at least that's what I got.

The Kami Trio come forth.

The boat skips across the harsh waves of the sea.

The mirror goes towards the Kami Trio.

Pikachu's Iron Tail won't break the box, until it does.

Yamask and Woobat are sent out.

Ash falls but Golurk rescues him and Pikachu.

Ash reunites with the others on the temples outside floor.

Garchomp, Dragonite, Pansage and Unfezant come out.

A few dozen Iron Tails, and wah lah, no more cage thing.

Sheesh, this episode is like a reverse Fifth Element.
Using poor Meloetta as a means to an evil end.
This episode is full of Pokemon lore!
Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus appearing from the sky!
Pikachu is trying to get out of that box using Iron Tail and succeeds.


Sick of dealing with idiots.
Giovanni goes crazy, oh well.

Dare Da? Landorus.


Well-Known Member
I still don't understand what Giovanni and Team Rocket's obsession is with the Kami Trio is, either now, or in the past.


Sick of dealing with idiots.
The Pokemon attack each other and it gets pretty crazy.

Dragonite uses Flamethrower and ends up getting hurt badly.

Pikachu intercepts Thundurus's attack meant for Dragonite.

Good Guy Pikachu right there.
This episode just proved one thing, Garchomp can surely fly. It was normal gliding.

Pikachu just got overcharged by Thundurus Electric Move while trying to save Dragonite.
