Review JN111: Mohn and Lilie, Snowfield Reunion

Yay, my favorite Pokemon was there and had a happy ending. Love the full family reunion, a much better resolution than the games.


Prepare for over-used stock animation!

I think the character acting through the animation in this episode is some of the best I've seen in this series! The piano playing, Lusamine pinching her brows when she realizes her husband doesn't recognize her family, Lilie finding the mirror and turning around to face the Ultra Beast behind her, the dust slowly falling off the windows at the end...really great stuff.

I get this is a weekly anime and they can't all look this good, but I would hope after 25 years this quality of animation wouldn't be such an outlier.

Very good episode, one of the best of all, really.

This nihilego was more gentle than others that appeared in the anime, but it is still very creepy. It saved Mohn, yes, Mohn likely wouldnt survive in the nihilego world for much time, but it also druged Mohn so that he started to think nihilego was his daughter, and hides all the mirrors so that Mohn doesnt remember his real family. Yes, nihilego drugged Mohn, it has a neurotoxin. Mohn saw nihilego as lillie because he was drugged all this time. If a human did the same thing, it would be unforgivable. But since its an allien jellyfish, and doesnt really understands why what it did was so wrong, its somewhat easy to forgive.

Nihilego is a parasite pokemon . In real life, birds that put their eggs in other birds nests, so that the nest´s owner raises their chicks are called parasite birds. This nihilego does something similar to parasite birds, but it put itself in Lillies place instead of putting its own kids.

Lusamine´s face when Mohn said that he had a daughter that lived with him there was hilarious . I mean, she spent years thinking he was dead, then months looking for him, just to discover that he had another daugther, and until she saw that the " daughter" was nihilego, she assumed that he had another woman!

I dont care that Lillie isnt a main character anymore. Its great to see her and her family closing mohn arc , that started with the tapu fini ´s fog episode, when they discover that mohn isnt dead. Alola´s characters are receiving good treatment in journeys.
