This is it! I smell character development and past exploration for Mareanie!

The wild Mareanie/Toxapex is quite strange. It has a different color, but it's definitely not the Shiny coloration. Either the anime somehow chooses to use a different color scheme for the Shinies of Mareanie and Toxapex or these are just different alternate colorations similar to the Pink Butterfree and the purple Kecleon. For comparison with their Shiny sprites: (click image to enlarge)

Despite my dislike of Team Rocket, this promises to be an exciting episode

I don't think it'll happen, but Mareanie's evolution is what I'm looking for in this episode. Regardless, more James and some Mareanie development is always welcome by me.

Well I would.

How immoral would it be to fake sick on January 18th?

I honestly can't remember the last time we had a non-Shiny alternate colouration which wasn't an error. I hope it's important to the episode's plot, because I otherwise can't imagine why the artists would go out of their way to make this.

Maybe they are shiny and it's just their take on it, without it being an error.

Yeah. Remember how in the Diamond & Pearl series they used Toxicroak's Shiny coloration as its regular coloration? This could be a somewhat-similar case.
 
That's the way it is.

Since the beginning of the "Sun and Moon" anime the James' hairstyle has been changed to make him more similar physically of the Mareanie's fiance. I suppose it is because the fiance of Mareanie is a sort of Jessiebelle (the fiancee of James) 2.0 and the tentacruel is a sort of Hopkins 2.0 I suppose XD

Wow, I somehow totally missed that Mareanie's resemblance to James and the callback to that line of Mareanie's first lover o_O It all makes sense now.

The only thing I care about in this episode is seeing James jump kick a Tentacruel.
