Hopefully, this is the start of a 2-parter. Ash hears about Opal and wants to battle her, so the trio decide to head to Ballonlea. Nearing their destination, they discover that it lies in the center of Glimwood Tangle, this first episode focuses on them getting lost in the forest, with Koharu as the main POV character. In the second episode, they make it to Ballonlea and meet Opal. Ash battles her and wins.
I’m glad we’re going back to Galar but it does put me in the mind of thinking - if they’re gonna do so many episodes in Galar, why not just set the series in Galar.
In fact they could’ve done the whole travel the world but return to a base at Magnolia’s couldn’t they? I know the series gets a lot of flack for being in Kanto most the time, but even the Kanto region seems incidental - most episodes are just set at the lab and the city the lab is in (which just happens to be Vermilion, don’t know what makes Vermillion so special, I’d have though they’d avoided it since they - also rather arbitrarily - sent Ambipom there with the implied promise and vague hope that it might be seen again... The only real reason I can think of for it needing to be this city is they wanted it to be by the sea?) long parentheses... what thread is this? Oh yeah!
Opal Will presumably appear here - an underrated gym leader from Galar. THIS IS GONNA BE PINK!!!!!
