Boring episode, literally. Ash and Rotom having argument then they reunion. Only thing about the funny part is where he recorded Ash's, Kiawe's and Mallow voice sample. Other than that, its still a unsatisfying plot.

I gave it, C-

I agree with you there Singaporean, we've had boring episodes in the past but this has to be one of the more boring episodes

This is the most boring episode I've ever seen. I'd rather skip it and wait for the next episode when our shaggy-haired Eevee makes an appearance in the main series.

Ditto, when I first saw the title for this episode, I predicted this would be boring, and man was I right

Hopefully the next set of episodes will make up for this one, especially the return of Brock and Misty

The next episode has to make up for having a few months worth of boring fillers. It feels like Johto all over again when you have 8+ episodes with no progress in the story.

@PetitEevee
He's going to feel even more emotional after lose the league once again to restart his adventure elsewhere in a new region.
Happens all the time. He'll lose this league, and will lose the next 100 leagues.

Satoshi: Rotom, how could you leave me in Alola, just to follow your own dreams? How could you do this to me! How selfish you are!

Rotom: I'm staying! :cry:

Fourty episodes later

Satoshi: Good bye Lilie, Rotom, pokemon I catch here, and other people I care less about, I'm leaving Alola to go to GenVIII region. See ya!

Rotom: ... ... ... :mad:

So, these people in the film crew supposed to be a reference to anime staff? That director guy kinda looks like Kunihiko Yuyama.

Does sun and moon series will be remembered for many awesome things and many unique things that made it great, the talking Pokédex is not one of those levels.

I sure wish team rocket would have been here to make things more interesting!

Oh and the Eevee stuff is underwhelming as hell...

So, what nudged Rotom into staying? I'm interested in that one detail. This might be a redeeming factor to me. I'll be disappointed if it's just because Laki suddenly didn't want it around.

From what I've seen so far, it definitely wasn't that.

And yet, people still foolishly believed that he's is going to win in Alola League as we've already know the series had been rigged to design for him to lose just to get an excuse to go for another adventure in a new region.

I had a feeling this was gonna be a boring episode when I first saw it was a Rotom-dex episode. Boy was I right. This was probably one of the most boring fillers in the whole series, and we’ve had a lot of boring filler this series.

Tell me about it. Every episode that focuses on Rotom-dex is always a boring filler. But at least the next episodes will be better.

You know Ash's reputation is in shambles when the TV Tropes Pantheon implies he and Pikachu are the Status Quo's "toys" who are mentally frozen in time. Even Peter Pan and Bart Simpson have medium awareness, and they, too, don't age.

The whole series has been mostly filler, and I have a feeling that this would be a redoing of Johto and Unova in having several planned subplots scrapped. I can't foresee Guzma appearing, it is too late for Lana and Popplio's arc to be concluded, both the Motherbeast and Necrozma arcs are done, the Ultra Guardians apparently replaced Looker and Anabel's post-game mission, and it is very unlikely Team Rainbow Rocket will be adapted with this series having a 3-7 demographic.

Too much filler leads to the series becoming boring, and while this series has had some good fillers, they seem to be running out of ideas when they just repeat certain clichés. Today's episode reminds me too much of Deep Jungle in Kingdom Hearts and Umbris in Ratchet & Clank, both involving a friendship-breaking fight between the main characters.
