Definitely agree on the feeling of the pacing. While I like the more storytelling format, I never quite feel satisfied just from viewing a single episode week to week since you tend to be left wanting as things trudge forward slowly. It’s kinda like eating a 4 course meal but each course is divided as they bring you one piece of individual food before starting to cook the next once you’re finished.This series is too slow for its own good. Glad that Roy might be catching a Pokémon at least. I hope they let Liko catch something soon. Another thing I noticed is that Roy does a lot of things without Liko. Perhaps they should interact more.
A recap this early on in the series really doesn’t make any sense considering not enough has happened for there to need a recap. Literally half of the series thus far was the prologue. Heck, neither has even so much as actually begun to expand their team beyond their starter. If one needs a refresher this soon, they’re gonna have a hard time following this series since it’s more story heavy rather than one-off.Makes sense to do a recap filler episode after two weeks of nothing
'course the dub releasing these in batches is going to make it feel even worse
