That would make the chances of Ash and Lance acting like they never met in a later episode be almost guarantied if Ash acted like he's never been to Ecruteak City.Satoshi seemed surprised when Gou told him that Houou's known to show up in Bell Tower...
There was also absolutely nothing in the episode's dialogue to indicate that Satoshi had ever been to Enju City before.
That's actually true, but what's the point of Go catching Pokemon without even battling them? If this series is based on Pokemon Go rather than Sword and Shield, I understand. But don't worry, I'm sure episode 12 with Leon and Lance will be better.Or not, some episodes are to bad to begin with I have not watched it but from what I read It could have been done a lot better
Maybe because Twilight Wings shows the path of a different character with a different storyline which somewhat follows the SwSh games, and it's just starting out?Twilight Wings focusing on random kid in hospital who dreams of meeting Leon - great episode, "why the main anime is not like this".
Main anime focusing on random kid trying to restore his grandfather's faith in Ho-Oh - "boring filler".
I don't get this fandom.
That's not I was talking about. I was comparing plots of both episodes that focused on completly new character. The complains that:Maybe because Twilight Wings shows the path of a different character with a different storyline which somewhat follows the SwSh games, and it's just starting out?
Maybe because the main anime already has a main character who's not getting much focus and the other main character has devolved into a psychopathic Gary Stu? Maybe because Ho-oh is supposed to be very important relevant to the former of the main characters, which is further shown in the artwork, but the actual episode is nothing like that and ends up just being exactly that - a boring filler? Maybe because of the bait and switch advertising, which in this case seems intentional and very rude?
They're two different scenarios. I can assume that if the Twilight Wings plot was shoved into an episode of the main anime, it would have received mixed reactions in a similar light that most boring fillers get.That's not I was talking about. I was comparing plots of both episodes that focused on completly new character. The complains that:
a) one focuses on character that may be the main one and the other on one-off character
b) one includes more game content than the other
has nothing to do with the actual plot of that specific episode. I don't see how sick kid delivering a letter to his idol is that much better than kid trying to fulfil his grandfather's dream of seeing Ho-Oh again.
All the complaints about Ash playing minor role here and pointless bait-and-switch are fair of course, but this episode wasn't mainly about Ash, this was Kurio's and his grandpa's story and from that point of view, it's wasn't any worse than the Twilight Wings short (for me at least).
Then what about episode 8? It was a little meh though. I bet the Leon episode is gonna be great.This series start is honestly pathethic. If things don't start picking up in the Leon episode (e.g. giving Ash a goal) then yeah... won't bother watching this anymore. The anime has seriously NEVER been in such a bad state. Music, animation, writing, direction. Everything failing at once.
