The biggest shock about this ep is Aoi returning! I honestly didn't think we'd ever see her again, and the summer school arc feels like it just ended.Sushi said:DP098 (?): In an episode taking place in Solaceon Town, the group reunites with Aoi at her parents’ Daycare Center. The group hears of a rumor about a “monster with a scarf” roaming around Solaceon. It turns out to be a Lickylicky.
THAT is all you have to say? I thought you'd like that we get Galactic 2 parter that includes Cynthia and her grandmother and also possibly Saturn/Jupiter/Mars/Cyrus all togetherWHAT? Returning to Zui? I wanted them to go a different way and stop in Tatara Ironworks. Well, prepare for another age of fillers. I'm so upset. We won't see Tatara...
I don't understand how anyone can complain about fillers now either. The D/P series has very few pure fillers, almost every episode is connected to another in some way.I'll also never understand what so bad with "fillers" since a lot of them are so much better than plot episodes Watch an episode before you decide if you like it or not - and if you like than who cares if it's a "filler"?
though, while it is true that a fair amount of Jouto could be completely removed with absolutely no inconsistency errors (and if there were any, they can't be any worse than Kojirou's Utsubot that came completely out of nowhere), plot-relevance does not necessarily make or break an episode. As we have seen, there're several "pointless" episodes (the commonly-accepted definition of "filler") that're in good ole' fashion fun, while we've seen a shitload of Gym battles, Contests, capture episodes, evolution episodes, attack-learning episodes, maybe even characterization episodes that just sucked balls (case in point: Satoshi's rather low-tension and horribly animated battle against Maxim recently).I don't understand how anyone can complain about fillers now either. The D/P series has very few pure fillers, almost every episode is connected to another in some way.
You go back and look at something like Johto, where it was like 90% filler between Ash's Gyms, and compare it to something like Sinnoh, and you realize how good we have it now.
they likely didn't. As the low ratings show, several people pretty much gave up on Pokemon during the Jouto saga, only to come back later when Ruby/Sapphire revived the franchise.If anyone is complaining about filler NOW, I have no idea how some of you managed to survive the Johto saga, where literally 90% of its episodes were filler.
Considering the episode is called "The Unidentified Floating Monster!?" I'm inclined to agree as well.I saw a picture of the Lickilicky. It doesn't look like a scarf at all. Someone on Pokemopolis said it looked like an inner tube, and I'm inclined to agree.
