I want some freaking action after three weeks of nothing. Not this...
The forums' software will be updated on December 9th, 2019 and may be down for several hours to multiple days for this process. Thank you for your patience, we hope this update will improve your experience here.
Why not join us over on discord during the downtime?
Technically the Pikachu episode isn't filler since the goal of the Sun and Moon Anime was learning all the z-moves so any episode showing a new z-move can not technically count as filler no matter how random it is.It feels weird to have 3 fillers in a row after a 3,5 week break, but this one seems to actually be worth it, as it focuses on human characters comedy with Team Rocket involvement, and it seems to have creative backgrounds.
Action? Do you really dare to call this action? They only used Z-moves and maybe 3 moves and that is action? Mallow, Soph didn't do a thing expect comanding a Ride pokémon who isnt even their own!Immediately after an arc full of basically nothing but action? I don't think so. Give them a break. They've deserved to have it easy.
I knew we'd be going back to filler episodes after that intense Necrozma arc, but I gotta admit...so far none of the new ones have really tickled my fancy. I think this one is probably the one I'm most interested in, but there are other "filler episodes" that I've been more intrigued by, like the car race, cooking contest, and the Houkani Observatory trip (which actually ended up being quite a tear jerker!)…Immediately after an arc full of basically nothing but action?

That's already more or less been done in XY&Z - specifically, the episode where Serena's Eevee evolved into Sylveon. But believe me, I wouldn't be surprised if something like that does return in SM...Seriously? What will they do next? A prom dance?
It's been decided that Satoshi and the others will put on a play at the Pokémon School. As the play begins they all act their parts, albeit in a slightly nervous manner, but then the Rocket Gang barges in, having stumbled over a copy of the script that Satoshi dropped earlier.

BugCatcherinVFCould this be inspired by the Magic Flute? Lunala Woman = Queen of the Night? Solgaleo = Sarastro? Satoshi = Papageno? Lilie either Tamino or Pamina?
