What awaits Pikachu and the others in these places?!

No classmates, no Team Rocket and no Professor Kukui in this episode? Only one human character in one episode?

Looks that way, can't believe I'm saying this but that has to be my least favorite Voice Cast list I've seen, its so short

Yeah, if this breaks the record of having just one human character, unless the other characters make brief cameos, then I'm okay with it.

I'm just hoping we see plenty of wild Pokemon to make up for the lack of humans

Right. I guess this is the first time where there's only one human character in the entire episode without any other main or supporting characters around. Previously, there were only three human characters in Ash's grand trial with Nanu.

This episode is pretty much a Pikachu short but only with Ash's team and Garchomp. I would have chosen something different for this series' possible last filler, as everyone but Lycanroc has already participated in a similar adventure.

Am I the only one who doesn't care about the development of the Ride Pokemon with the exception of Charizard? I'm not liking the fact that none of the human characters apart from Ash are appearing here either unless all they're getting is silent cameos.

Sounds like a Pikachu short that would air alongside a movie, but extended into a full episode

It could make sense if Ash is gonna use Garchomp as his sixth team member

There was merchandise of Charizard, Garchomp, and Metang released a while back


Since the boys' Ride Pokemon have gotten individual focus unlike the girls', it's entirely possible that they could use theirs

Not likely, but possible

Can't say I'm looking forward to this episode, I would have preferred it to have Ash return seconds after he left, like the Zeraora arc

I believed, this is the side episode after Ash's back to the past. While his pokémon are on the search to look for him throughout the whole Alola, right?

Also, first preview:

I still feel that this will be a pointless episode, why couldn't they return to the present soon after they left like the Zeraora arc

Well, we do get like 90+ episodes each series that would be considered pointless by that logic. On top of that there's always been a "filler" episode a couple of episodes or even right before the league anyway (I suppose in order to "cool off" and leave some breathing room between plot related stuff).

I honestly don't think it's that big of a deal.

A Pikachu short disguised as an episode...

I have a strong urge to say "Sun & Moon has officially hit rock bottom, Ladies and Gentlemen"...cut that could still happen (or already has)...

And I really hope they don't let Garchomp be the Ash's sixth mon. I'd hate that even more than Meltan evolving during the League. Or any of the PokeZords on the characters teams. That would be Dawn's Togekiss all over again. Only much worse.

Yeah, I’m also against Ash using Garchomp as his sixth Pokémon, not just because it would suddenly give Ash a strong fully evolved Pokémon out of nowhere, but because Ash already has a Gible. It would be weird for him to have a Gible and Garchomp both separate from each other.
