I swear Grookey better not evolve in that episode. Grookey absolutely doesn't deserve it right now and Goh has done, like with all the other starters, very little to earn it. Knowing this mess of a series though they will give Grookey the most undeserving evolution in Pokemon anime history.
It’s honestly brilliant how quickly they managed to outdo themselves for the same title after Drizzile > Inteleon.

Go literally said that Ash takes things too far when it came to the situation. And regardless of if it would have happened sooner or later doesn’t change the fact that it did happen because of Grookey messing around nor the fact that Go deflected the blame to someone else rather than owning up to it.

Team Rocket are villains. Causing trouble for the protagonists is literally their point because they are the antagonists of the show. Grookey is not. We're supposed to be rooting for this monkey, but we have been given no reason to, as it's completely unsympathetic.

I don't know what the TRio has to do with that gremlin being so unsympathetic.

I will dare to say that they, at least, got rid of that pest.

It is absolutely impossible to root for that monkey, nor find it either cute or likeable.

TR are Villains. They're SUPPOSED to do bad things and make you dislike them

Grookey is not a Villain
Well, the TRio can be sympathetic at times and there are people who love them.

That pest acts like a Little Devil and gets away with all the ruckus it causes.
Being a Karma Houdini, or to get others blamed for those misdeeds, is the worst thing about it.

That doesn't make Grookey look better in fact that makes Goh look just as bad because instead of owning up to what Grookey does and teaching him that its wrong to do those things. He instead blames everyone else for any wrong doing his Grookey does.
