There is no “other trainer”... The trainers here are Team Rocket and that is obvious as hell. Pelipper’s antics in today’s episode led to Grookey’s Pokeball getting out of the gachat.

There has been absolutely nothing suggesting Grookey is a Gatchat mon. That's just an idea someone threw out that people seemed to like.

Grookey being a gatchat mon wouldn’t even make any sense considering that TRio are the only Rocket Agents that Giovanni seems to send to Galar, evidence by the fact that Chewtle has been the only Galar Pokémon to ever appear from it, the same one that they captured.

Maybe they caught it?

I doubt TR caught it considering they were trying to steal it with a net in the preview

The prewiew:
Ash: Looks like it is caught by someone!
Goh: That someone cant be...
TRio: Nyahahahahahahhaaha!
Still doesn't explain why there were trying to get it in a net if it's supposedly theirs.

Also the narration could just be a red herring

Doubtful considering that, this being a starter, the writers wouldn’t just skip over a detail like that.
They reveal it in the episode. And because of the prewiew it is 99.9% Team Rocket.

They were trying to get Pikachu they also get Grookey because it hates them.

I'm having a hard time believing that Team Rocket owns this Grookey when they trapped it (and Pikachu) in a net.

It could be that they just ended up getting it in the same net with Pikachu since they were walking side by side and didn't want to miss the opportunity.

Honestly, I'm more excited to see what will happen in JN060 than this episode. I feel like no matter the outcome, my reaction will be "meh".
If Ash catches Grookey this episode will be great but if he doesn't I will feel the same as you.

I mean they did leave that Wailord from the gatchet behind. Nothing says Ash and co can't break a Gatchat ball and recatch it.

....I mean it would be a little sketchy but I've seen people call Goh's catching habits psyocopathic so....

Mewtwo Strikes Back taught us that you can catch a Pokémon even while it's in a Poké Ball, so anything goes now :lapras:

I'm starting to doubt that the monkey's trainer is a Cotd/new recurring character.....

But I'm still against of the overused mistreated Pokemon capture, even if it belongs to the TRio.
