Meloetta and the Undersea Temple!



Animation - Team Kato
Screenplay - Atsuhiro Tomioka
Storyboard - Tetsuo Yajima
Assistant director - Hiromasa Amano
Animation director - Izumi Shimura

Satoshi and his friends are training at Shirona's villa when Meloetta indicates that it wants to have a battle with Mijumaru! A boy named Larry passes by and, upon seeing Meloetta being attacked, assumes that Satoshi is up to no good! Our heroes later find out that Larry and his Goluhg travel all over to protect Meloetta from danger. Suddenly, our heroes find a suspicious looking security camera spying on them! Suddenly, the Rocket-Dan's boss Sakaki shows up...!

Was that the league we saw being prepared when Shirona was talking to her Butler on the phone?

She just said it was an "event." She didn't specify what it was.

I doubt we'll ever see it brought up again.


Also, the butler's name is Jeremy. Butler is the guy from the Jirachi movie :p

Now that's a great episode - one of the best of BW. Sure, I have a lot of complaints about the mechanics of the episode (those stupid floating forcefield cubes), but it all came together really well.

I just watched this episode. HUGE disappointment for me. Jessie, James and Meowth are hardly appeared, I was expecting to be disappointed but not at this point. (And I do not expect anything better for next week) Bravo Tomioka! *sarcastic*... -_____-

I'm actually surprised that they managed to capture her before. What I'm not surprised at is that she escaped. Um... HOW? Was a reason given?

Things we learned today:

Sakaki could have easily captured Pikachu all these years if he had cared.
Persian knows Power Gem
Persian knows Shadow Claw
Persian is basically as strong as Pikachu
Persian has a Monster Ball

It's like a checklist of things to do before they write off the Rockets.

First of all, that was the 1st part barely, they will have a bigger role in the finale. Second, it's the end of Team Rocket as an organisation, probably. The TRio doesn't need to appear more than necessary in it. They will have a plenty time to shine later. The organisation deserves a proper sendoff ater 15 years.

Oh wow, it was really fast, yet they managed to cram all this perfectly for some reason.

It was still a good episode (persian ftw). I can't wait for next week.

The previews don't do this kind of episodes any favors. Nothing surprising happened.

I guess that seals the fate of the coveted Plasma 2 parter.
I suspect that some fans won't be convinced by that and will continue to cling onto false hope.

They got the Live Caster for themselves, if that's anything. James waving his hair showed that he still got it xD.

I agree. Everything went so fast going to one place to another, and yet it didn't feel rushed.

Yeah. I guess this sort of means that if TP ever shows up, TR won't be involved. The recycled animation proves that Giovanni won't be after the same thing.

The images of the live caster are nothing new we've seen many times before!

They weren't recycled animation.

We saw these images in the special show on the 15th anniversary of Pokémon, and the Rocket Live Caster substitute the Oak Live Caster during the holidays
