The Leader, Curator, and now - the Troupe Leader - all looking identical are bringing to mind Don George from the BW Series. (OUTSIDE the Joys and Jennies of course!) Are they Triplets?

At least Don George wasn't annoying and actually enjoyable at times.

I love how JN has dropped the bar so low that the forum is collectively cheering about a Pokémon using a move for the first time.
I think that's why I personally think I won't ever like JN, frankly. I'm just not the type of person to feel happy by getting the dry bare minimun, and this series is struggling to deliver even that.

I mean I don't care about Grookey either way, but if not using a move really bothers anyone I don't know what to say. That's like the least of my concerns about any of the current Pokemon.

I feel like the crux of the issue is not just "hasn’t used a move" taken flatly, rather it serves as a mark of how little it has actually done. It’s a metaphor, how a Pokémon hasn’t even done a basic thing Pokémon do on a daily basis and literally the crux of Pokémon training and raising.

True but again it's a gag pokemon. If this was one of Ash's Pokémon it'd be a different story but as a shoulder gag mon it doesn't really matter. I'm not that invested or even care enough

It's not even the first time it's used Branch Poke

It's just the first time Go recognized it as a move

Well, the treatment here is pitiful even by “gagmon” standards. Just look at Rowlet or Chespin.
