Gonna laugh if dracovish's "focus" is just "it's there because it's the only water-type Ash owns" and not actually...ya know, focus
Knowing Journeys, this is 99% the case :whistle::whistle:

If not this episode, they'll give Dracovish focus in the Iris episode

Iris: "Ok Ash, we'll fight each other using two Dragon-types."
Ash: "Sorry Iris, I only have one Dragon-type Pokemon on me."
Iris: "What about Dracovish?"
Ash: "Dracovish is a Dragon-type Pokemon?"

I doubt this is happening though, since Ash seemed to be aware Galarfetch'd could evolve, so it would be weird if he doesn't know Dracovish (It literally has Draco in the name) is a Dragon type.

Ash had no idea farfetch'd would evolve - he's the first (in Kanto) to discover that method of evolution for galarian farfech'd and since they're researchers, they'll publish it and voila, now more people will be able to use Sirfetch'd in the anime

tbh, in the episode it was kinda implied Ash knew beforehand, while Goh didn't.

Although it doesn't appear to be playing a major role in the episode, its good to see Swampert appearing for the first time since Diamond and Pearl

Not counting movie appearances that is

How many episodes have been similar to these type of episodes, i.e. racing/obstacle events?
Don’t get me wrong, I actually enjoy these episodes, so I’m happy its around, but they’re kind of beating a dead horse aren’t they?

EDIT: Only ones I can think of are the Rapidash episode from the original against Gary’s Arcanine, the Pankcake Race from S&M, Pokeathlon in D&P (Pikachu v Snorlax), Noibat’s Race in XYZ, Charjabug Race in S&M. Even the Summer Camp finale in D&P counts.

Don’t forget about the ice float race from earlier in the series’s district the Vikavolt race around the end of SM.
