This is actually the first TR episode I really want to watch! Seeing James (hopefully) bashing a Toxapex would great since I hate Toxapex after seeing it everywhere on Showdown...

It is Toxapex : (Pokemon Moon Pokedex entry: “Those attacked by Toxapex’s poison will suffer intense pain for three days and three nights. Post-recovery, there will be some aftereffects.”) James is going to fight it with "bare hands"... No one is worried about this ? ?

Maybe he'll be immune to Toxapex's poison because of his experience with Hidoide.
If not, maybe the rest of the team will take care of him afterwards.

I love how ridiculously straight they're playing this regardless of all the obvious inappropriate anime tropes that are immediately evoked at the thought of a sexy young man fist-fighting with the "Senpai" a fantasy tentacled creature (who he kind of owns) for a love that never can be...

What is @Playerking up to that I am left to copy and paste the summary & cast list, that too 2 days late?!
As Hidoide was shopping with its partner Kojiro, it ran into its senior from its swarm, which also happened to be its first love. At the moment, Kojiro is the only one for Hidoide, but its senior still ends up confessing its love for it. Kojiro decides to battle the senior over Hidoide.

Screenplay 関根アユミ (Ayumi Sekine)
Storyboard 榎本守 (Mamoru Enomoto)
Episode Director 榎本守 (Mamoru Enomoto)
Animation Director 田之上慎 (Makoto Tanoue)
Animation Director 小林ゆかり (Yukari Kobayashi)
Animation Director 志村泉 (Izumi Shimura)
I'm glad to see that Sekine is writing this - I thought she did a good job with the Mimikyu episode.

A human battling a Pokémon over love for a Pokémon?

If in-game Pokedex entries were all followed exactly in the anime, Kiteruguma would have killed Team Rocket long before now.

The TRio seem to have some super physical resistance.

If you ask me, senior in Japan is called "senpai", and junior as "kohai". I like how some characters call some people senpai.

Don't get too cocky there, pal. They somehow will make a cameo in this episode.

No need to appear rude, was just pointing out their lack of a voice credit. Would be interesting to see an episode where neither Ash or Pikachu appear and one or more of his classmates gets the focus
Well, uh... That would be great if Ash for once was absent. This kind of stuff only happens in special episodes, not in the main series.
