Doesn't sound like all that exciting of an episode, but I do love the little sibs like Parker so might be a fun watch even if it's not plot heavy.

I doubt there will be a trade involved with evolution- trade with item evolutions have always cut out the trade in the anime (sometimes having the Pokémon go through a transporter as a nod to the idea) case in point Misty’s Poliwhirl and the Clampearl on the ABC islands.

I don’t think Ash is going to catch Feebas.

I doubt Ash is getting Feebas or Milotic for one single reason: He only gets Water types that can move on land and are agile on land (Which neither Feebas nor Milotic are).

I'm afraid that Team Rocket might be in this episode, the episode that makes less sense for them to be.

This or his ratio will be 12 OUT OF 31 less than 40%

Quantity doesn't and shouldn't mean anything. I'd rather have more episodes with TRio being themselves rather than them appearing often in a generic villain manner and stuffed into a conflict with the protagonists just for the sake of using up screen time.

And so far, there have only been 4 or so episodes where they've been entertaining without any of the stuff I mentioned (JN012, JN013, JN019, JN024, minor props to their 4th wall breaking moments in JN026).

I can't agree more.
Normally the TRio episodes when they're focused on their story and development as characters tend to be sooo good. Them being only there to be generic evil team 1 is so boring. Honestly rather have biff and the other woman return to serve that purpose

You are absoletuly right. I would prefer a quality over quanitity Rockets like we had in S&M. But now we only have these morons with the gatcha. I liked them in episode 18 too but only because of Chewtle.

But all this absences and the lack of Pokémon, I have a feeling that the end is near for Team Rocket Trio.

I brainfarted on that second part while typing the above comment. I was going to mention Hutch and Cassidy as well as Matori and her team (literally set up a few episodes back) to be used as the generic evil gang instead of TRio themselves. It's only holding the quartet back despite there being potential for them. For example, what happened to the backstory they were going to explore in the interviews before the series premiered?

I hope too that Cassidy and Fudge appear. And I want more of Matori.

About the backstory.... well we knew recently that the Leon vs Raihan episode was wrote before the games and anime release so there is still time for that episode to happen. Or it is just another lie like Ash Sobble or the Piplup and the Croagunk. We should be used to that by this point...

It was. There was an interview recently where (among other things) they mentioned that was written before the games were released so they didn't know how popular Raihan would end up being.

These are the interviews in which the TRio's seiyuus begged that fans petition the producers to increase their appearance rate because there was so much interesting stuff they could do. Whether they ever get to do any of that remains to be seen...

Why are they even here?

I assume you mean Team Rocket

I don't mind them appearing if the Pokemon they use are their own Pokemon, Frillish and/or Mareanie, James would certainly win Water Type Pokémon Friendship Contest (or come close maybe) instead of dressing one of their Pokemon in an fake disguise

I'm hoping Chloe appearing might be a sign of her getting more screen time

You're such an evil person, don't do this...don't give me hope
Wakana Minami: Nami
Hmmmmmmm, definitly a one piece reference, there is irrefutable evidence! Meltan appeared in the manga, and recently a trio of character's had characteristics similar to scyther and pinsir and heracross.
But is it actually possible that they chose the name after the voice actor? Probably just a coincidence
