That plus it would really feel like the writers were rushing things if they were to suddenly be throwing evolutions Ash’s way within the span of just 5 episodes should it happen during the full battle. I’d say Ash getting Naganadel basically shot down any chances of Torracat evolving.
TR are definitely the worst offenders since, even if by some insane level of stupidity you don’t recognize the voice, hair color or hairstyle, how does anyone fall for Meowth’s disguises? How man Meowth faced people can there be in the world?
This actually looks really good based on the preview. Glad to see that it looks like it isn’t going to involve the Ultra Guardians and will actually be taken seriously.
On the side note, it’d be funny if, after happening twice in a row, that at the Galar league award ceremonies, Ash is prepared...
