What makes that Sandile moment even worse is the fact that Ash has experience with the line from the fact that he owns its evolution.The electric vs ground thing would have been less of a sticking point if Satoshi hadn't pointed out to Pikachu earlier in the same episode that Meguroco/Sandile is a ground type so electric moves wouldn't work! Did he just... not hear Go say that Goloog is a ground type or what?
The shiny hunter kid was a funny reference to the shiny obsession sub-culture of the fandom. I wish we'd get to see him again because I feel he definitely has more to offer.
I liked Pikachu clapping for Hibunny when it landed a hit in the first half of the episode though, v. cute.
Watchable, but not Tomioka's best output. Oh well, never mind.
So Go has upgraded from perfect captures to mooching off of the work of others. Did Go even need that last capture? He already got 2 in that same episode.The 3 COTD can't do anything against Golurk.
Gou's Scorbunny and Beedrill got one-shotted.
Before being switched out, Pikachu was able to make Golurk kneel with its Iron Tail.
Dragonite was able to go toe-to-toe against Golurk with Dragon Claw.
Gou only contributed with Darmanitan's Overheat together with Dragonite's Hurricane in the last minute.
And Gou end up being the one catching Golurk.
I'm definitely salty about this.
That would have been awesome maybe in the future...This episode would have been so much better if the COTDs who weren't the shiny collector were replaced with the Rocket duo. Kojirou could have confirmed whether or not he got that Kamukame last week and Musashi using her Sonansu in a raid battle would have been a great way to make a joke about always getting stuck with a Sonansu Trainer when you try Sword & Shield raid battles offline.
I am pretty sure even Go realizes that throwing a Pokeball at Ash's doesn't work in terms of capture.Pros:
Three characters of the days with 5 Pokemon between them
Pokemon being immune to moves they are immune to
Ash ordering Pikachu to use Thunderbolt against Golurk (surely he remembers it doesn't work)
Go catching too many Pokemon too easily
Go catching Golurk instead of Ash
Her outfit at least is 100% based on Pokémon Rangers from Unova games. That much is certain.Also, I'll be surprised if the girl isn't related to Milo in some way; the resemblance is uncanny.
That's also appeared in the anime before.The reference to the Golurk cannon from Pokepark 2 was a nice little detail, too.
