Also we saw the normal sized Magikarp. Goh's Giant Magikarp did not eat it offscreen! Also Ash is apparently not a movie buff.

I watched the subs so lets... REWIEW!!!
:bulbaWave:Good Stuff
+
Sobble development
+ Sobble learning U-Turn
+ Sobble being cute
+ Sobble's new battle strategy
+ Inteleon
+ The episode wasnt that Goh focused
+ Team Rocket fighting with Meowth and Wobbufet.
:bulbaFacepalm:Bad Stuff
- THE WHOLE SOBBLE LINE DEBUTED BEFORE THWACKEY OR RILLABOOM.
- Wobbufet gets bullied
- THE STUPID GACHA.
:confused:Extra
.
So Sobble didn't evolve and I doubt it will before Grookey appears so that makes Ash mor likely to get it right?
7/10 Finally Sobble got some focus and it was hella solid.
Drizzile didn't debut though.
Finger crossed for Ash to get Grookey.
( cuz Grookey = Monkey = Ash)

What is the soundtrack that plays during Sobble vs Meowth and Wobbuffet? Can't seem to find it in the album.

Speaking of soundtracks,

What's the song playing when Inteleon rescues Sobble?

Sounds familiar but I can't place my finger on it

The show got TV / movie actress Ms. Momoko Fukuchi to come in as a special guest to voice Jacqueline.
Just asking out of curiosity: Where can you find that character's name ? As far as I remember, her name Jacqueline wasn't directly mentioned in the episode (or maybe I didn't hear it) nor was it in the subtitles.

It was mentioned in the cast list.

The part where Sobble uses its invisibility to its advantage would be Go All Out...!
The part where Meowth and Wobbuffet are about to attack Sobble covered in powder would be Thrilling Excitement.
The part where Sobble uses U-Turn is High-Speed Battle.
I think Go All Out...! is blocked for me, however.

I think this might be my first official review of an episode on the forums, so here goes.

I actually enjoyed this episode, despite me not really being very fond of Sobble in general, it was still a well-constructed episode. As he was always so cowardly about everything right after being caught, which I thought was mostly just normal character traits, this episode offered a ton of positive growth. It wouldn't surprise me if he evolves in the next few episodes, since Drizzile wasn't debuted in person on screen.

So, about Grookey then. I don't have a clue for why they haven't debuted it yet, but the thought that Ash may catch it is probable. I believe that it'll be mostly for balance, since Goh has two starters that appear on camera frequently, it only makes some sense that Ash could obtain Grookey.

I just realized something!

A lot of people have been jokingly comparing the scene where Inteleon gives Sobble a Forehead Poke to the Iconic moment in Naruto where Itachi gives Sasuke a Forehead Poke!

I didn't think much of it until I remembered who wrote the Episode

The Writer is YUKA MIYATA! The same woman who used to write on the Naruto Anime (or at least I know she wrote the movie Road to Ninja)

For all we know, Inteleon poking Sobble actually could very well be a Shout-out to Itachi and Sasuke! XD
