Surprisingly well rehearsed

Really surprised that Puni-chan didn't make an appearance... wasn't it supposed to be helping Gekkouga with the vine removal? Also, if the vines are popping up that frequently and dangerously in that forest wouldn't it be better to cut it off to visitors?
Fun fact : Ash-Greninja not appearing ( which is so Fu**ing wild ) is a reference to the upcoming great Gou-Greninja
It's also the only one of Ash's party Pokémon to have not been used in an Ultra Class battle yet, but that will be fixed in the next episode.It just came to me, Lucario got this and the Mega Stone ep, Gengar got the Gmax shroom hunt and Dracovish and Sirfetch’d got the Kalos two parter. Dragonite is the only one in Ash’s party to not get a dedicated training episode thus far, hope that clip with the Garchomp from the previews will be addressing it.
I wouldn't go as far as to say it was outright retconned either. Just surprised the flashbacks with it were altered since the previous ones in this series seemed to value fidelity and attention to detail.I don't feel Ash-Greninja was retconned or anything. It's just being kept hidden, possibly for a future return where it will appear again.
It could be that they don’t want to promote Ash Greninja anymore since its basically impossible to get it in the games now unless they redistribute it. Megas are at least still in Pokemon Go.I wouldn't go as far as to say it was outright retconned either.

Uhhh, wasn’t this said about the Clemont episode being rough visually in regards to the Drasna battle? I know that’s not the same thing since those episodes aired the same day but it’s not really a argument I believe in much these daysMan, the animation was horrendous for this one, but I suppose they’re saving it up for next week, so I’m not too bothered.
Zygarde: For the rest of your days you shall endlessly cut these vines. This shall be your atonement.So what's the point of Lucario seeing the vines? Not like Greninja will ever get any backup... no, Greninja is basically the region's gardener and not allowed any help. :/
New viewers can just quickly find out about it online. I find it weird that they chose a specific scene where ash Greninja is shown, instead of any other generic shot with Greninja.The two powers are very similar, since they both allow Ash to move in sync with his Pokémon and increase their power. I wouldn't be surprised if the Bond Phenomenon has been about Aura this whole time.
That's not a retcon. They're just keeping the Ash-Greninja form hidden for this episode, possibly to keep it a surprise for new viewers for later.
My guess it's that Lucario still needed to perfect the technique or at the very least learn how to do it at will, because the previous times Lucario used it there wasn't much of an indication that he was even aware of what he was doing with his Aura Sphere. It also looks much more clearly bigger here.But, what exactly did Lucario learn here? He already knew how to make giant Aura Spheres and this episode has been the one time he’s come across as sluggish and slow, so… what was the point?
