This episode was groan inducing, really hoped Suicune would be released but no, it remains

HOLY FUCK!! I'll never thought the day, that Goh might actually did catch a legendary. But sadly, we won't see it action anytime soon in future episode.

Overall rating: B+

I was surprised that Suicune chose to remain with him. But hey, at least he offered it the chance to leave.

Goh actually caught it. He actually god damn caught the thing and it even got the chance to hang around in Cerise's laboratory for a bit too. I guess Goh really is the be all, end all trainer of this series now.

Did Suicune leave or was that an "I'll appear when I'm needed" thing?

I... actually liked this episode quite a lot?! I need to watch it subbed to make a more accurate assessment but at the very least it managed to feel very personal and soulful, at least by this Pokémon standards.

It definitely looked more like the latter, but we'll have to wait for a bilingual kind soul (or subs) to confirm either.

I haven’t really gotten the chance to see the full context of this episode just yet but the bits about Suicune that I have heard about just sound wrong to me for one simple reason: Ash has never even gotten close to achieving something like that, and there’s just something about one of his generation companions accomplishing that sort of thing before him that seems wrong to me. Surely a companion wouldn’t be expected to do that much better than him

Episode seems fine, yeah, and I won't "lose my head" over this, but I do wish the "first" Legendary capture (though Eternatus) was a raid battle...like Eternatus (but somewhat counted).

This episode was unetertaining and kinda boring tbh

I think the latter. And I think that's a perfectly good compromise.
Yeah, I like this too. Presumably Suicune is out there helping others right now so it's not like Goh is preventing him from doing his job. Also, Suicune not being around all the time prevents Goh from potentially abusing it. I'm just wondering under what circumstances it will reappear.

Has he tried? Like, at all? If not, then that's on him, not Goh.

I enjoyed it. It showed Goh's compassionate side and him actually helping Suicune and earning its trust. He was even kind enough to offer to release it, but it chose to remain with him out of its own free will. And the ending where it disappears to roam the world is a good compromise. Getting to have your cake and eating it too. It's still his Pokémon, but it's also free to go wherever it wants to.

I mean, it kinda was. After all Suicune was weakened by multiple hunters and Go just happened to throw the Pokéball (presumably with the intent of freeing it). It's not like it was a solo capture, at least technically.

Well, knowing stuff like how Tobias has a Latios (which is a Legendary) and how Gladion has a Silvally (which is also a Legendary), I'd say that, too...
