Yep, there was a lot of reused animation in this episode. To match the "new" opening theme I guess. And Poké Puffs are a thing of the past. Pikachu was eating croquembouche.Is it just me or did they actually reuse Lillie's maid's frame from episode SM008 in this episode when Pikachu is eating Pokepuffs? You should compare it if you don't believe it.
It's stated that Lillie was living with her mother at another one of their mansions when she became afraid of Pokemon, and that her mother is still at that other mansion busy with her "work".It wasn't really focused on Lilie as the trailer implied. She gets screentime equal to other characters. Lilie's "scared of pokemon" storyline is definitely over. It's ended in a disappointed fashion, with no revelation about it's cause.
Mao used Togedemaru for cleaning, Kaki used Ashimari for taming farm pokemon, Shiron is bonded with Nyabby, Amamaiko and Mamane sleep together in the same bed (!), Suiren scrub the Bakugames' shell and make it look shiny.
She was able to touch Pikachu because Trainers and Pokémon bond over their success in battles. She knew Pikachu pretty well at the beginning of the episode and was still afraid of touching him. Lillie hugged Pikachu after the battle because they were celebrating.Her fear of all Pokemon might not be completely gone, she could be able to touch Pikachu because she knows him pretty well, she might not be able to touch wild Pokemon, Pokemon that she knows nothing about, personally.
Sure, but I doubt she's going to have to battle with every other Pokemon in order to be able to touch them. Battling with Pikachu was probably just the realisation for her that although Pikachu isn't her Pokemon, she is close with it in a way, so she can now hold Pikachu and maybe even the rest of the Pokemon that she is friendly with. Pokemon battles are usually one of the best ways for Trainers and their Pokemon to bond with each other.She was able to touch Pikachu because Trainers and Pokémon bond over their success in battles.

But yeah, I don't think Lillie's fear is gone. Not that I'm expecting some beautiful storytelling later on, but we're not done with this yet. I'm not particularly interested in what the writers will do to explain her fear tho. I think Gladion's reaction to seeing his sister holding a Pokémon in her arms should have been a little more "wow" if it was such a big deal. But then again Gladion is edgy and these type of characters can only display anger and annoyance.
Yeah, probably for most Pokemon, unless she does it off-screen, I can't see her battling with the other Pokemon at the Pokemon School, which she also is near almost every day, in order to comfortable touching them.It's specifically stated at the end of the episode that Lillie still has a way to go and that she'll need to continue working to be able to interact with pokemon, one by one.
Having one line stating such in the episode is not equal to actual character progression if it's not really focused on or shown.It's specifically stated at the end of the episode that Lillie still has a way to go and that she'll need to continue working to be able to interact with pokemon, one by one.
