I will give Journeys credit for having some of the PWC challengers reappear. It's nice to see that they've kept some of that from SM where COTDs were basically non-existent. I don't mind having some COTDs, but it is nice to have some minor recurring characters as well.

I will not give them credit for the overall plot, though. I was worried this would be a rehash of the Absol episode we already had in AG, and this sounds almost identical. Absol is a Pokémon we don't get to see very often, so pretty disappointing they can't come up with anything different for its first feature episode in a while.

Technically Hodge wasn’t a PWC competitor since he appeared before the PWC was first mentioned but I wouldn’t put it past the writers to have him as a competitor now.

I do feel that Hodge would be a great rival in the PWC, too bad the next episode will see Ash fighting to enter the Hyper Class

Ack, you're right! I totally forgot he was in the Flute Cup and not the PWC (probably because that was one of my least favorite episodes, lol.) Still, nice to see what I thought was a COTD appear again!

If that guy from ep 7 returns after all, Pochama from ep 8 might came back as well.

With Hodge coming from Lavaridge Town, I'm hoping that this is the location, helped by the fact it has a hot spring which the summary mentioned.

We probably won't see Flannery though

Just like Chuck was nowhere to be seen in episode 36 despite his city being in trouble from Flygon.

Lol, I actually predicted Ash and Hodge meeting again on Lavaridge Town a year ago.

I wasn't really expecting to see him now as he seemed more like an early-series rival, but better late than never I guess. I still don't see him reaching the Top 8 though.

Am I forgetting something? Ah yeah, the Absol. I can definitely see a story where Go's very dismissive of it because of his beliefs in facts, but eventually grows to understand it, while Ash's "plot" is mostly his interactions with Hodge.

I popped off when I saw that Hodge was coming back, JN007 is still my favorite episode of Journeys so far. I can’t wait to see him again.

In my defense, have you SEEN the size of the spiders in the pokemon region?

Flooding the region is the only logical option

On one hand, there's stuff like Ariados, Galvantula, and Araquanid running around. Not exactly stuff that's native to Hoenn, but I see your point.

On the other hand, Joltik is tied with several other Pokemon for the title of smallest Pokemon ever. Who'd wanna drown this cute little thing?

With Hodge putting in an appearance this episode, part of me would like to see him maybe catch Absol instead of Goh
