I think Cinderace's development has been rushed and poorly done in general honestly. First off, Scorbunny to Raboot didn't really feel deserved in general. Goh used Scorbunny in one battle, then decided he didn't like battling. Scorbunny suddenly wanted to get stronger to battle Darmanitan, but Goh was like nah you don't need to. So then Scorbunny learns Ember and evolves, though suddenly Raboot is very aloof and cold to Goh? My thought was it was Goh's attitude towards training and learning new moves that did that, but no. On top of an evolution that didn't truly feel earned, we had this new problem. Raboot seems to be very distant and cold, though the question was why?My problem with Cinderace is that it's pretty much reached a Dead End Character Development wise. And we're not even halfway through the series yet.
It's conflicted feelings with Gou have been long resolved.
It's reached it's final stage and it's very strong without even having much Training Experience.
There's nowhere left to go with it development wise
Well there's still the G-Max they can show off but that's about it
We see Raboot suddenly pay more attention to one of Ash's battles and Raboot looked interested. I think back to Goh not wanting to teach new moves and I thought, maybe Raboot has some issues with Goh. Maybe Raboot wants to battle more? Maybe it's like how Charmeleon got cocky and lost respect for Ash when he was telling him to go easy and lose to a Paras. Nope...Raboot just wanted to dance, not battle. This came completely out of left field, so it makes you go what was the point? Goh even thought it was his fault, and based on how he was in JN17, you'd think that had something to do with it. So Raboot gets to dance and suddenly Raboot is fine with Goh again? What?
So time goes on and suddenly Raboot is more competent in battles, and only 28 episodes later, Raboot has fully evolved into Cinderace? Talk about a truly rushed evolution. Its hardly even battled much or gone through development and training and its already fully evolved? Though its probably not as bad as Lana with her Primarina.
