Not a lot to say, just a continuation of the story which was pretty straightforward, aside from the Garchomp stinger at the end. Nice to have a longer episode this time.

Volo(?) cameo was pretty cool. Some weird editing in this episode though.

There isn't much of a story tbh. It felt like it took the entire episode for Alec to just stand up lol. Kind of a shame since there are so many interesting things they could have explored with the Hisui region and it's characters.

The ending is kind of interesting though with the space distortion and Volo cameo. At least it seems to take place in the same universe as the games.

Maybe they could have showed more of how Hisui has changed since Alec was a child.

The art style is really beautiful, and I like the details such as the red ears and soft colors. But the story has gone downhills drastically with this one. I focused on anything but the story itself.

I'm happy it was twice as long as episode one...but not happy at the pacing.

We get it. Pokemon and Humans were enemies back then. You can tell that story better without trying to be slow and atmospheric at the cost of losing viewers' interest...

Don't try to act like Ghibli with a series of shorts instead of a movie.

For me, Ep 1 and 2 had to be 1 full epiaode. It was straightforward indeed, the pause made it too predictable and it seems only now we can end the 1st ep and move forward to another.

Story yet to come, just a long intro.

I like the animation and colors though, and will watch ep 3.
