how did Koharu climb up those tall mushrooms after it had rained?
She didn't

She climbed up the rock face, which led to her taking a break 30 seconds after taking a break to wait for the rain to pass - poor girl has no stamina

First Go with being terrible at climbing and now this. Did they just remove gym class from the curriculum or something?

Serious question: how did Koharu climb up those tall mushrooms after it had rained? I can barely hold onto mushrooms after washing them to slice before cooking, but I digress...

It was a disappointing episode, wasn't it? It didn't really hold my attention at all. @Nicolas721 has described pretty much exactly why. Satoshi and Go crowded the episode out for sure, and whilst the pink clothes were cute it was a waste of time as well as a very weak appearance for Her Majesty - let's hope she gets another proper opportunity.

Also, whilst the scenery was gorgeous, it didn't feel earned ya know? Like a beautiful setting in a travelling series meant that the characters and us had been wandering for months through deciduous forest to unlock it, meanwhile they just... arrived there...

Meh.
I disagree, I wasn't disappointed with Koharu's scenes. Ash and Go felt tacked on though, I would have preferred a Koharu solo episode like many were predicting.

Impidimp were great and I realized what good Rocket mons they'd make - they even used a pit trap. I hate the Gachat even more now.

....Honestly you probably could have had the guys just stay in Kanto. IDK, maybe they had something they had to do and wished her good luck.

But hey, guess Goh got to capture something and Ash can't just....can't just.

(....I like Ash and he deserves better than being Goh's sidekick)

I dont like that Satoshi is used as an afterthought in most episodes here. In the Suicune one, in the Sobble one and now here

He getting focus next episode.

And obviously Episodes about Sobble and Chloe wouldn't focus on Ash

Of all the episodes we had so far this year it's actually been way more balanced

Ep 50 Galar Fossils - Ash
Ep 51 Farfetch'd Trials - Ash
Ep 52 Diglett - All
Ep 53 Suicune - Goh
Ep 54 Messon In Possible - Sobble
Ep 55 Luminous Forest - Chloe
Ep 56 Wikistrom - Ash and Gou
Ep 57 Psyduck - Kikuna and Chloe
Ep 58 Double Feature Filler - All
Ep 59 Grookey - ????


Of all the currently known Titles, Ash is actually the one with the most focus lol

Goh only really has Suicune Episode where he plays a major role in it

Goh wasn't the focus of Sobble's Episode
And whoever's gonna the most focus in Grookey's Debut Episode is currently Unknown

The problem is more a case of what 2019/2020 was like. That builds up a lot of ill will that takes time to dissipate.

JN050 was focused on both since Goh battled Arctozolt and Ash did something with Dracovish.
JN052 was mostly focused on everyone but Goh caught Diglett and caught and released Dugtrio.

Galar Fossil Filler was about All.
Sobble episode was Sobble but it was also Goh.
Goh might not have a major role in the Wikstrom episode.

And in the Farfetch'd episode Goh caught Geodude but in Suicune Ash did nothing.

Yes, Go catches Pokemon, often randomly with little setup. I think we all get the idea by now, so the complaints are silly. That episode wasn't Go-centric.

This is basicly Jouneys:
Chloe: Develops in her 1% screentime
Goh: Catches something and gets focus 98% of the time
Ash: Comic relief character who gets sidelined 99% of the time
