Kiawe there honestly looked like a One Punch Man version of that Yu-Gi-Oh card...Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi.
In what way is world-building less in SM than previous series? If anything I feel like Alola is more three-dimensional than any of the other regions we've visited previously.The series is indeed more reliant on characters rather than world-building like it was before.
In the way that we're actually getting to spend a bit of time in the same town, learn about the local people and their culture/customs/values and see more of the regional pokemon than just a single gimmick. Whereas, if you asked me to tell you a single distinguishing thing about the locale and inhabitants of Kanto, Jouto, Houen, Shinnou, Isshu or Kalos, I would not be able to.In which way?
I thought Pikachu was doing that because he could tell the crystal was under the wig. Either through scent or somehow sensing it with electricity. I could be wrong but that's what I assumed the point of him continuously "playing" with the wig was.My least favorite thing about this episode had to be Pikachu's extreme OOC-ness. Any previous version of Pikachu wouldn't be focusing on playing with a damn wig while Ash is counting on him to find such an important item. I literally wanted Rotom to smack Pikachu in the face each time he reached for the thing. I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it many more times, but I HATE Sun and Moon Pikachu.
If you had paid attention to what I said, you'd notice that I said that the series is more focused on characters rather than world-building, I didn't say there wasn't any. And I didn't say the premises are flimsier, just that they're not any better.In what way is world-building less in SM than previous series?

I also don't understand why show-stealing art/animation makes flimsy premises any flimsier. It's not like we've previously been treated to particularly more valid reasons for the existence of episodes.
I totally was thinking that they're pulling a Cilan here and from here on out Rotom is totally gonna go off the rails---and I love it.
