  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

inb4 more complaining about moving onto the other trials etc.

Yeah, moving the typical complaints aside, if this is just another dicking around episode I'm gonna go ahead and skip it.

Also why does Pikachu even need to babysit? In my eyes it doesn't make a lick of sense. Not groundbreaking stuff if you ask me.

Well when I thought about what the title might be implying, one of my first thoughts is that Lillie is going to take care of Pikachu. That would be a good thing, because despite her being able to touch and Vulpix, she still can't touch any other Pokemon.

I was hoping a 'Pikachu's Goodbye' kind of episode. Hope that happens....

I hope it has something to do with Lillie.

If we can't go to Akala yet, at least give us more hints about Lillie's fear.
 
Always happy to help

Not the sort of title that jumps out at me if I am honest

I think it's nice. Pikachu doesn't actually do a whole lot usually so I like how it has some focus to it. How funny would it be if Team Rocket had to take care of Pikachu for some reason? Like it got sick or hurt and somehow ended up in their base. Actually now I want to see the opposite happening. The TRio getting paralysed or poisoned or something and Pikachu has to help them out. I'm a gold mine over here!

Ash got runner-up in the Kalos Conference. They aren't going to progress him further. His goal will take the backseat this series.

As a fan of Pikachu, I really hope this title doesn't contain his name for namesake only. (I'm still recovering from SM 20 disappointment...)

I'm hoping this is a Lillie episode, with her having to take care of Pikachu like the title says, and the episode ending in her making another step towards overcoming her fear by becoming able to touch Pikachu.

Pretty cruel for someone to screw around with us like that with the titles...but I guess that's just the way things are.

Honestly, I prefer the Ilima/Akala Island episodes to what's actually going to be airing. Like a previous commenter said, it seems like they're just going to be screwing around having a good ol' time. Except this time pikachu is going to be sick/given to another person for the time being....yay.


I guess we're going to wait another 30-40 episodes before progress is actually going to be made.

Of course those other titles were too good to be true. I'm skipping this one if its another filler.

Smh people, we've learned by now that you can't judge an episode just by the title or summary.

We've had multiple episodes so far in which with the titles/summaries sounded like fillers, but then they turned out not to be filler.

Not to mention that "filler" is a ridiculous idea for this anime anyway; it's not adapted from a manga like Dragon Ball/Naruto/Bleach, so it can't have "filler" in the same sense that they can.

And episodes that I didn't judge just by the same title/summary turned to be pretty bad. Some examples are SM006, SM023, SM027,etc.

Maybe people just don't want to get their hopes up, just to be disappointed in the end. So they're already anticipating that it will be filler or not that good.

What do you have to say to people with that mindset?

It's a terrible mindset to have.
