People thinking Lana getting Eevee means it will hardly do anything, instead of seeing it as a step forward for Lana's character.

Just because Ash is the main character, the entire show does not revolve around him, other characters need development too.

People should really start learning to not take things for granted. It happened in the Kalos league, it happened with Eevee.
No, people need to learn not taking the poster for gospel and proof. Its the second time that a Pokemons placing on a poster doesn't matter (First Poster with Mudbray in the center and now with Eevee).

All this build-up just for the Eevee to be caught by someone who is neither Ash nor the female lead?

Weird, but whatever.

Kinda fun fact, but it looks like because Popplio learned Surf, that means that the anime has removed the restrictions of Surf being used because since the Black & White series, Surf has been banned from being shown in the anime because of you know, tsunamis and such. Now, when will Earthquake be allowed again?

I don't think it was ever truly banned. It just didn't show up for a long time.

I don't like how passive Ashimari was in the episode. She should have been able to defeat Persian, instead of running away. She also did nothing against Skull gang till others came.

How do you mean?
We can pretend that Lana will give Eevee lots of moments to shine, but will she really? Not to mention that the LGPE Eevee has 9 whopping signature moves and Lana will probably only use one of them (maybe the Normal-type one, too).

Lana should have received a second Pokemon a long time ago. It didn't need to be highly marketable.

Lana isn't the main character, and she isn't the female lead either. This is like hyping up a Pokemon for several episodes then giving it to Brock or Clemont.

It's not Lana catching Eevee that's the problem, the problem is that Eevee was hyped up for several episodes, so people expected it to go to a more major character.

Lana has always been the female lead. She got a Z-Move and has the Water starter (Every time a starter is available, the female lead has it).

Sun & Moon broke that trend by making Lillie the female lead, just like it broke the trend of Ash getting regional birds by giving him Rowlet instead.

Considering how little they focused on Shiron, Suiren has better chances with Eievui.

I wonder Lana's Popplio's gender is female, because Kiawe mentioned it, when wild Eevee (now Lana's Nakisa) and Popplio are lost on the sea

Looks like Lana got the precious Eevee we’ve been following. Glad to see he found a home after all these weeks. Glad to actually see a good episode also after all the boring filler.

They really gotta give Ash another catch though. Hopefully Lana evolves that Eevee into a Vaporeon also. It would be nice to see a fishfox on the cast.

If Eevee is promoting LGPE, it's never evolving.

Just curious, where was it confirmed that Popplio is female?
