SWEET GOD IN HEAVEN IS REAL AND LISTENING TO MY PRAYERS!!!

Here's hoping for a <30 second scene of the happy family shopping before spending the rest of the episode with the Rockets.

Certainly sounds like a promising episode

EDIT:

The Rocket Gang has met Hidoide's senior Hidoide, which it used to carry an unrequited love for. The senior says it's in love with Hidoide, but Hidoide is currently in love with Kojiro... What direction will its love take?!

Summary:
On their way back from a shopping trip, the Rocket gang meets Hidoide's senior Hidoide, which it used to carry an unrequited love for. The senior says it's in love with Hidoide, but Hidoide gives it the cold shoulder, saying it's in love with Kojiro. Just what happened between Hidoide and its senior in the past...? Kojiro and the senior decide to battle over Hidoide. Will Kojiro be able to stay with Hidoide? What direction will its love take?!

Voice Cast:
Rica Matsumoto: Satoshi
Ikue Ohtani: Pikachu
Daisuke Namikawa: Rotom
Keiichi Nakagawa: Professor Kukui
Megumi Hayashibara: Musashi
Shinichiro Miki: Kojiro
Inuko Inuyama: Nyarth
Yuji Ueda: Sonansu
Mika Kanai: Kiteruguma
Rikako Aikawa: Gonbe
Fumiko Takekuma: Hidoide
Sachi Kokuryu: Burnet
Unsho Ishizuka: Narration

None of Ash's classmates appear, interesting
Odds are they'll cameo during the shopping seen, albeit for a brief time.

Looking forward to this episode

So to recap, the summaries have revealed exactly 0 new information and almost every clip in the New Years preview was of Kojirou fighting with Dohidoide AND it's getting increasingly unlikely that the episode will be filled with 50% nonsensical school B plot...

The unexplained clips are:
- Kojirou vs Dokukurage
- Hidoide contemplating at night (which might be anyway from the flashback...)

To me it looks like Kojirou is actually looking past Dohidoide when he appears to be going to punch it... Maybe he is actually about to knock out something attacking Dohidoide from behind?...

One way or another, they are keeping something from us. It's unlikely to be anything that awesome or unexpected, so I reckon it could be that our Hidoide is evolving.

So from the looks of things this seems to be a mostly Rocket episode with maybe one or two scenes with Ash(unless they decide to pull Z-move training with Pikachu into this episode)

Regardless of how Satoshi is used, I'm very excited about this episode.

This is going to be a very emotional episode. And given how good emotional episodes Team Rocket has given us in the past, I have confidence that this episode will be a good one.

Bet right before James punches the Toxapex, Hidoide would intervene and defend James.

It seems that Mareanie is in Kukui’s house…I think the fight vs tentacruel is perhaps a fantaisy of Mareanie that she may be telling to her senpai... I'm really intrigued, we did not have a lot of new information in this preview...

Maybe it was found injured and Ash and Kukui want to take care of it for the night.

James would make a good Pokémon Trainer or Breeder, if he wasn't part of a criminal organization.

The kick to magicarpe was justified, he lost his payday advance and nearly died because of this stupid fish XD

Toxapex: Take me back, baby! I killed a Corsola for you!
The corsola horns can regenerate ;)

I hope that it's James who will be injured by Toxapex... with a little recovery at Kukui house :love: It would be sad but interesting and cute.

I know this carries over from before SM but, it just dawned on me that Team Rocket actually have real, definite casual clothes now and don't just wear their uniforms or disguises 24/7.
