I would say that I hope they do this battle right and have only Ash be the one to battle Totem Lurantis and its allies. But honestly, its way more likely that they're just going throw Mallow in the battle and put her on ally duty like Ash was to Lana against Wishiwashi. Meh... :( The only thing that would make me the slightest bit excited for this episode would be Ash using Litten to battle Lurantis. The poor kitty has barely done anything since being caught and needs some action more than any of his other team members.

I'm surprised honestly. Given how the Wishiwashi episode turned out and the new details on the Marowak episode, I thought Mallow would be the one to incredulously defeat Totem Lurantis and gain a Grassium Z. It seems Ash will do proper battle with at least one of Akala's Totem Pokemon :rolleyes:

I think the main reason they dont want Mallow to battle Lurantis is that she doesn't own a z-ring. Lana found a stone which Olivia molded into a ring for her, so it made sense to the writers to allow her to have a z-ring. Mallow on the other hand would have no way of using a z-crystal, so they wouldn't want to give her one.
(yes, i know Team Rocket doesn't have one either but I'm sure the writers don't want to do the same exact story line with mallow that they plan to do with the TRio)

Ash will OHKNO Lurantis while the latter has a food battle with Mallow or something like that.

Ash and Mallow have to search for three ingredients in order to make the Akala dish: Akala Curry. Even though Fomantis and Diglett get in their way, they still somehow manage to gather all three. But then a Lurantis shows up and Ash has to battle it!! Will he manage to safely make it back to eat the delicious curry?

Summary sounds nice. Glad to have Mallow as the episode star (finally!). It's a good thing we can learn more about Alola- it's more interesting region than i used to think.

Well, we know Litten's gonna be here. Hopefully he's the one battling Lurantis.

I'm actually really happy we get to see Castform. That's not a Pokemon you see a whole lot in the anime. Actually, that's not a Pokemon people pay much attention to in general.
Yeah, it hasn't appeared since AG. I assume Mallow will battle it, and since it will turn into the Sunny Form, there's a good chance there will be harsh sunlight, so maybe it could activate an ability?

Alright, not only do we get Litten battling Totem Lurantis, but the ally Castform is there too. Now just keep Mallow out of the battle and make it a solid 2 vs 1, and this episode might be good.

So does the Rocket trio just not fucking exist anymore or what?
They're jumping in the pit of obscurity because the writers can't figure out how to give them proper screentime/roles in these episodes anymore.

Their Darkium Z is the last thing keeping them relevant, but even that hasn't been brought up in 10 episodes. :(
