Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.
Ash and Go head off to investigate the "Ruins of the Giants" that have been discovered in the Desert Resort in the Unova region. Will the two be able to solve the mystery of the ruins?!
It's almost like they're deliberately trying to avoid game characters and locations. The only game characters who have appeared so far are Giovanni, Lance, and Leon.Ugh... that doesn't even feel interesting. Instead of using the Relic Castle as the location (the very Relic Castle that was never featured due to two unreleased episodes) for the episode, they decide to create a completely new anime exclusive location. The funny part is that there was no reason to not use Relic Castle if they're indeed trying to intentionally avoid continuity. I don't even know what the writers are doing at this point.
Not to mention that it seems to be another GO-ification episode what with Gou's captures being spoiled and the raid battle in the title.

It's pretty much clear at this point that they are only interested in promoting Pokemon Go.I've noticed.
There's absolutely no point in the "World Tour" and "all regions" aspect that this series is supposed to showcase if they're not going to (re)visit any game locations and bring in characters either met in the past or from the games. Kinda makes the entire series fall flat on its face.
If I remember correctly, Gou also caught three water-types, those would be good against golurk too. I liked his dewgong's personality, personally I hope he uses it...I would have preferred to see the Relic Castle here, but the episode focuses on Golurk rather than Volcarona and the Desert Resort is big enough to contain more ruins. Anyway, it will be interesting to see Go catch Golurk after a difficult battle for once, but he doesn't really have a counter right now unless Misdreavus is involved and uses some tricks.
